The True Scandal Chapter 1.2

TL: snaggletooth


Xu Sheng walked into the room while Jiang Yan waited outside the door.

.

Tang Zhi didn’t intend to let Xu Sheng stay for a long time, so he didn’t serve water. He let Xu Sheng sit on the sofa, while he pulled out a chair and sat not far away. Then he asked straightforwardly, “Why are you looking for me?”

.

Xu Sheng didn’t answer immediately, he looked at Tang Zhi and Tang Zhi’s home with judging eyes, as if he was giving Tang Zhi a score.

Tang Zhi thought that Xu Sheng was probably thinking “How can Xu Keyu like this kind of person”.

Coincidentally, Tang Zhi was also thinking that, Tang Zhi also wants to know the answer.

About half a minute later, Xu Sheng finally said, “Mr. Tang, were you in a relationship with Xu Keyu before?”

Tang Zhi said, “No.”

Xu Sheng didn’t seem surprised. He calmly told Tang Zhi, “The past two weeks after you left, she has slit her wrists three times. Saying that she would rather die if she can’t be with you.”

Tang Zhi frowned, Xu Sheng continued, “I’m usually busy with work and have neglected Ke Yu. I don’t know her emotional life and also don’t know her mental condition had already reached the state in which therapeutic intervention is needed.”

“I plan to send Ke Yu to Mingxin hospital for treatment, but she doesn’t agree to it.” Speaking of this, Xu Sheng suddenly stared at Tang Zhi and paused.

He seemed to be waiting for Tang Zhi to ask why won’t Xu Keyu receive treatment so that it’ll be easier for him to explain his purpose for coming.

Initially, Tang Zhi did want to ask, but Xu Sheng’s gaze and short pause made him feel nervous and unhappy, so instead, he asked back lazily, “You have to consult the opinions of a mentally sick patient to send them to the hospital?”

“It’s like this.” Xu Sheng explained, “The doctor and I both hope she can have a stable mood and cooperate with the treatment when she is admitted to the hospital.”

Only after Tang Zhi paused for a while, did he make a “mn” sound and asked, “How are you going to make her stable?”

“Keyu had one request, and I agreed to it.”

“What request?”

Xu Sheng looked at Tang Zhi and told him smoothly and naturally, “She wants to marry you.”

For a short moment, Tang Zhi doubted that he might have auditory hallucinations.

He took a glance at Xu Sheng, who had a very serious expression. It’s hard to think that such absurd words came out of his mouth.

“Xu Keyu wants to marry me, but what’s the use of whether you agree to it or not?” Tang Zhi voiced his confusion.

“If you can marry her” Xu Sheng continued without answering, “I can give you enough money for the rest of your life.”

“Of course, if you want something else, you can also directly mention it.” He added, “As long as she can be admitted smoothly, we can negotiate about anything.” And then he said an amount.

Maybe this figure is nothing for Xu Sheng, because his expression hasn’t changed at all, but for Tang Zhi, it really is the amount that he can’t finish spending for his entire life.

Tang Zhi looked at Xu Sheng and didn’t know what to say. In silence, Tang Zhi thought of some unimportant past matters. He suddenly thought of the pale sun hanging high in the sky on the afternoon that his mother was sentenced to life imprisonment.

He thought of that early morning when the school persuaded him to drop out three years ago. With his school bag on his back, he tightly grasped on to the strap that hang from it. He walked through the empty sports ground alone. The strong wind was blowing all over Waterfront Port, it hurt his ears, but he kept walking.

Tang Zhi remembered the day he met Xu Keyu again. Xu Keyu bought almost all the clothes, shoes, and bags in the store where he worked.

“Wrap it all up.” Xu Keyu said, “I’ll buy it all. Count it as your achievement.”

please read on shanghaifantasy.com

Tang Zhi didn’t want her achievement and didn’t want to see her, so he changed shifts with his colleague. Later, he was informed by his colleague that after Xu Keyu didn’t manage to see him, she found several strong men and stationed them outside the store.

The Xu Keyu from that time and the calm and rational Xu Sheng currently in front of him don’t seem to have any similarities, yet somehow, they seemed to be exactly the same.

Tang Zhi suddenly and sincerely smiled at Xu Sheng, “You guys are really rich.”

It’s uncertain whether Xu Sheng really did not understand the meaning of Tang Zhi’s words or only pretended not to understand. He still asked Tang Zhi in a gentle and cold tone, “Is it not enough? You can tell me however much you want.” As if Tang Zhi was an item on the display shelf waiting for sale.

Tang Zhi looked at Xu Sheng and said to him, “Scram.”

Xu Sheng’s expression did not change. As if he had never been offended by Tang Zhi’s rudeness, he looked at Tang Zhi for a while, suddenly called out Tang Zhi’s name, and pointed out: “From what I know, you visit Chengshan women’s prison every second Saturday of the month.”

Tang Zhi was stunned.

please read on shanghaifantasy.com

A chill ran through Tang Zhi’s spine and rushed to both his fingertips and head with anger. He cursed at Xu Sheng, quickly stood up, and shouted, “Where I go every month is none of your business!”

please read on shanghaifantasy.com

Then he raised his finger and pointed at the door, “Scram out of here, right now.”

Xu Sheng didn’t seem to expect that Tang Zhi’s reaction would be so fierce. He frowned slightly and looked at Tang Zhi. After a while, he said “You don’t have to be so agitated. I just wanted to ask, don’t you want to meet your mother outside of prison?”

“I got someone to read over her case.” Xu Sheng said, “It’s not impossible to overturn the case.”

please read on shanghaifantasy.com

Tang Zhi stared at Xu Sheng’s face, his anger slowly drained away, leaving behind a lot of confusion and a little bit of pain. He felt incompetent and weak, but didn’t know what to do.

After a long time, he replied, “My mom has a life sentence, that’s the final verdict.”

please read on shanghaifantasy.com

“I know. Just tell me if you want to or not.” Xu Sheng said simply.

Tang Zhi lowered his head to look at Xu Sheng and inevitably noticed that his handsome face and expensive suit were very abrupt in the living room full of cheap goods. Incompatible with everything Tang Zhi has.

Thinking of this later on, Tang Zhi would always feel that there were countless kinds of intense emotions in his heart at that time.

please read on shanghaifantasy.com

Such as humiliation and unwillingness, anger and constraint, anxiety and thirst. For example, loathing Xu Sheng and Xu Keyu for their superiority and hating himself for his weakness and incompetence. For example, he desperately wants his mother to regain her freedom. Yet he was afraid that Xu Sheng would deceive him, giving him endless hope and that in the end, it will all come to nothing.

He felt that he had struggled for almost an entire night to make up his mind.

please read on shanghaifantasy.com

But in fact, Tang Zhi didn’t make Xu Sheng wait too long. Maybe it was only 10, or maybe even 15 seconds later, he said “I want to”.
