The voice was soft.
Yet it caused Qin Ye to smile slightly.
Turning his head, he saw that Chen Dong was looking at him with obscure eyes.
He shrugged his shoulders and put his hands behind his head.
As he spoke, Qin Ye’s gaze turned profound as he muttered.
“You know what? I used to be just like you, with a mother who loved me so much that she was willing to give me everything, even the stars in the sky.”
“Our family was actually quite happy, my parents loved me and I was in a powerful family like the Qin family in Xishu, not worrying about food and clothing, although my father’s position in the Qin family wasn’t too high, but he still had brains after all and made a good living in the Qin family.”
“But one day, one day, ah, I suddenly felt that the sky had fallen and the whole world had changed.”
Speaking of this, Chen Dong clearly saw that Qin Ye’s deep eyes, gradually surfaced with hatred and hostility.
“At that time my mother had just gotten pregnant with 2 children, haha …… not afraid of you laughing, I actually felt quite ridiculous knowing it at the time, after all, I was an adult at that time, it was a bit of a big span.”
“But if you’re pregnant, you’re pregnant, I’m a brother who can still stop my own parents from producing and growing?”
The cigarette burned out.
Qin Ye unhurriedly lowered his head and lit up another cigarette.
As he smoked it, he said.
“And then what happened, my damn father cheated on my mother when she was pregnant with her second child! Got bored with a twenty-something year old goblin every day, didn’t come home anymore, didn’t even care about the family, and all the affairs of the Qin family that he controlled were all put aside.”
“This incident alarmed the entire Qin family, the face of the gentry well, the Qin family head intervened in this matter and strictly ordered my father to break up with that goblin or he would deprive my father of all the affairs he controlled in the Qin family, but my father said nothing, saying that he and that goblin were fucking in love.”
The tone of his voice became a little angry.
Chen Dong did not stop and listened quietly.
He had, for now, closed himself off.
This was the first time he had actually talked to someone in the past week.
“Actually, I know what my father has in mind, isn’t he just relying on the fact that he is a member of the Qin family? Even though he was deprived of all his affairs, but with the status of a Qin family member, he could still have a wealthy family and live a damned love affair with that little demon.”
“At that time, my mother was so angry that she was hospitalised several times, and I also approached that little demon a few times, only for that little demon to rely on my father’s affection, and actually threaten to get my mother killed, the mistress on top?”
Saying that, Qin Ye slowly raised his right hand and clenched it into a fist.
With hatred in his eyes, he gritted his teeth and said, “I really hate myself that I should have just strangled her then, or else there wouldn’t have been the aftermath.”
“And then what?” Chen Dong asked.
Qin Ye held the cigarette in his right hand and rubbed his face.
When his hands left his face, his face was already full of chills.
“It was a night, it was raining heavily, and I remember very clearly that my father, under pressure from several parties, my mother and I and the Qin family and the little goblin, drank lots and lots of alcohol and was really about to get my mother killed under the crying of the little goblin.”
“Then he came home on a rainy night, the first time he’d been home since my mother was eight months pregnant.”
“And then, my damned father, killed my mother, and took the child in my mother’s belly, hard, and gave the child’s belly a stab too!”
The pupils in Chen Dong’s obscure eyes tightened.
At this moment, his brow was furrowed to the extreme.
The cigarette in his hand couldn’t help but twist into two.
Qin Ye’s body was trembling, his eyes were red and glowing with tears, but they were permeated with bitter killing intent.
He raised his hands with a sobbing voice and gestured.
“You know what? I was home and I saw my mother lying on the living room coffee table, bleeding all over the floor, her stomach ripped straight open vertically, staring round.”
“And the baby was like a piece of trash, thrown on the floor in a pool of blood, eight months old already in human form, only so big, I looked closely, it should have been a younger brother, with a knife stuck in his stomach.”
When he said this, Qin Ye’s body trembled more and more.
His eyes were at times fearful, at times angry, and at times full of killing intent.
The whole person was in an extremely terrifying state.
“With just two stabs, my mother is gone, my brother is gone, my home is gone, do you think he and that little demon should be killed?”
“Should be killed!”
Chen Dong spat out two words coldly.
This was the first time he truly knew about Qin Ye’s past.
No wonder both Qin Ye and the informed Elder Long had always kept this matter a secret.
It was because this matter was too tragic and full of blood and tears.
Perhaps it was because the family scandal was not publicized, or perhaps it was because Qin Ye’s father had been too beastly in what he had done, which was why the Qin family head had allowed Qin Ye to manipulate the profit of tens of billions to gamble on his next chance to live, right?
“So yeah, we both had mothers who loved us equally, yet both died tragically.”
The corners of Qin Ye’s eyes quietly flowed tears, and his eyes slowly returned to normal: “At that time, I painfully helped you out, anyway, I am a patricide beast is it, get another one, no big deal, one day a big thunderstorm will come down and strike me dead, even if.”
Chen Dong said despondently.
Qin Ye gave Chen Dong a sidelong glance, rolled his second white eyes and said, “Look, what I went through was even more painful than you? I also felt like the sky had collapsed at that time and I had fallen into hell, but I climbed out.”
“I followed you because of you and your mother, if you can’t climb out of hell now, I’ll be gone.”
Chen Dong looked at Qin Ye, his eyes once again becoming obscure.
He bowed his head, took out a cigarette from the cigarette case, lit it and smoked it skillfully.
Qin Ye slapped the cigarette at the corner of Chen Dong’s mouth and sent it flying, “I fucking ripped open the wound and gave it to you, just to cheer you up, don’t you have any reaction at all?”
Chen Dong calmly bowed his head, picked up his cigarette again and lit it.
“Chen Dong, I know you’re depressed and in pain, but you’re not doing anything at all by closing yourself off like this, you still have a lot of things to do, and a lot of people are worried about you.”
Qin Ye was a little emotional, Chen Dong’s calmness gave him the urge to freak out, “You can cry, no one will laugh at you, you can cry freely and painfully, after that, get up again and do what you need to do!”
Chen Dong remained calm and indifferent, the cigarette rising in curls of smoke at the corner of his mouth.
Qin Ye was furious and fought to smash his fist into Chen Dong’s face, and at the same time, he also knocked the cigarette away.
“As my mother said, you can’t cry, the crown will fall off.”
Chen Dong slowly sat up, half of his face was already swollen, but he still looked down to fetch his cigarette, lit it, and then closed his eyes.
“You cry out before you are qualified to wear the crown!”
Qin Ye scolded sternly, “If you want to wear the crown, you must bear its weight, this is the experience you must go through to wear the crown, only when you really wear the crown, your mother will not have died in vain!”
The near-roar echoed through the room.
It was also just as Qin Ye was scratching and ranting out these words.
Chen Dong’s closed eyes, his eyelids trembled a little.
Two drops of tears, silently slipped out from the corners of his eyes ……
Tears, quietly slipping down.
They slowly dripped down Chen Dong’s haggard face to the ground.
Qin Ye’s expression choked, and then he let out a long breath as if relieved.
There was no disturbance.
Qin Ye turned around and left the room.
Downstairs in the living room.
Chen Daolin, Gu Qingying and the others crossed their fingers, their expressions grave.
The loud bang just now had made everyone a little apprehensive and nervous.
No one knew exactly what had happened.
When Qin Ye walked down the stairs.
Gu Qingying and the others instantly stood up.
“How is Qin Ye …… Chen Dong doing?” Gu Qingying was alarmed and worried.
“It’s fine, now it’s your turn to go up and keep him company.”
Qin Ye shrugged and said with a smile, “It’s just that you have to be mentally prepared, I guess the tears can wet your clothes.”
Gu Qingying hurriedly ran upstairs.
Chen Daolin and the others also let out a sigh of relief.
“Fine, fine, just cry it out, just vent it out.”
Gu Guohua and Li Wanqing looked at each other and smiled, as if relieved.
Chen Daolin’s expression also eased a little, and there were a few moments of glow in his eyes.
They had experienced great storms and wind, and were very clear about what it meant for Chen Dong to cry out now.
This was the greatest good for Chen Dong.
“Boy Qin, how did you enlighten the young master?”
Elder Long asked curiously, but his eyes, however, were a little heartbroken.
Qin Ye spread his hands and said with a smile, “Just told him about my past experiences, and compared to being miserable, he is not as miserable as me.”
Although he was smiling, his eyes had a look of sadness in them.
Long Lao gave Qin Ye a heartfelt hug, “It’s been hard on you, thanks.”
“He’s my brother, why thank me?” Qin Ye raised an eyebrow and smiled.
At that moment.
The sound of howling came from upstairs.
It was heartbreaking and incomparably miserable.
The cries echoed throughout the villa.
But everyone did not feel the slightest bit uncomfortable.
When it was truly cathartic, the Chen Dong that once was, could return.
“Thank you Qin Ye.”
Chen Daolin listened to the cries and looked relieved as he walked up to Qin Ye and said gratefully, “Thank you really.”
As the head of the Chen family, he knew what had happened to the Qin family back then and knew about Qin Ye’s past.
It was even clearer and more detailed than many of the magnates knew.
It was also because of this that he was clear about how much Qin Ye had paid to persuade Chen Dong.
To tear open a scar that had been dusty for years and expose it to the full glare of the public, even going so far as to rub salt into the wound, was nothing short of a nightmare.
“Master Chen Clan is more than polite, there is no need to thank you.” Qin Ye responded calmly, “I only have one brother, Brother Dong, I don’t want to see him fall down in one fell swoop.”
The crowd settled into the living room and waited in silence.
An hour passed.
The cries from upstairs finally faded away.
Another half hour passed.
The sound of footsteps came from the hallway.
Everyone got up and looked at the sound.
Chen Dong, with the help of Gu Qingying, slowly walked down the stairs.
At this moment, his eyes were red and swollen, and there were still tear marks remaining on his face.
However, his eyes were no longer as dull as before, but with a brightness and light.
The whole person’s state was very different from before.
Gu Qingying nodded to Chen Dong.
After helping Chen Dong to sit down in the living room, she said in a soft voice, “You rest for a while, Sister Xiao Lu and I will cook you dinner, more or less.”
Chen Dong nodded his head and smiled faintly.
This smile made the huge stone in everyone’s heart finally fall.
Soon, Gu Qingying and Fan Lu brought the prepared dinner and brought it to Chen Dong.
The simple two dishes and one soup were quickly devoured by Chen Dong.
After finishing his meal.
Chen Dong suddenly said to Chen Daolin, “Dad, I have something I want to ask you.”
“What is it?”
Chen Daolin asked.
“Go up to the terrace and talk.” Chen Dong got up and headed upstairs.
Chen Daolin followed closely behind.
Gu Qingying and the others did not follow.
This was the first chat between father and son.
And, it was still after Chen Dong looked away.
If Chen Dong wanted to talk to his father, it would not be good for the crowd to follow.
On the terrace.
Chen Dong was lying on the edge of the balcony, facing the night breeze, thinking about something.
Chen Daolin walked up to him and asked, “Dong’er, is there something wrong?”
When he asked this, Chen Daolin’s brows were locked in a frown, and he was a little apprehensive.
This was because he knew that one of the reasons for persuading Chen Dong to accept the heirship in the first place was to allow Chen Dong to bring Li Lan home and surround Li Lan with the glory that she was originally supposed to have as the wife of the Chen family head.
But now …… Li Lan is gone.
The reason, too, has become dismal.
“Dad, do you know about Black Prison?”
Chen Dong suddenly asked.
Chen Daolin looked stunned and did not say a word.
Chen Dong, however, did not care, blowing on the night breeze, a smile appeared at the corner of his mouth and his gaze became incomparably deep.
“In this bout, I was sent to a place called Black Prison, and I also met Chen Daojun, your brother and my uncle there.”
“And then what.” Chen Daolin’s voice trailed off.
Chen Dong continued, “In fact, when I was imprisoned in the Black Prison, I never gave up the idea of escaping because neither Little Shadow nor my mother would allow me to give up.”
“But while I was inside, there was one thing I could never understand, and that was that if the Qin family and Old Lady Chen really wanted everything from me on their behalf, it would have been simpler and crisper for them to kill me instead.”
Chen Daolin’s pupils tightened and he suddenly laughed.
“But now, I’ve figured it out, all the doubts I had before have been solved, right from the sentence that Zhou Xuan questioned when he collapsed.”
Chen Dong rubbed his face as his smile turned extremely bitter, “He asked why I hadn’t died. In other words, the Qin family and Old Lady Chen intended for me to die!”
Speaking of this, Chen Dong nodded gratefully to Chen Daolin.
“Thank you, for protecting me.”
“You are clever, far beyond my expectations.”
Chen Daolin smiled faintly, “I thought I could hide it from you for a while.”
“If so much hadn’t happened, perhaps it really would have been possible to hide it from me.”
Chen Dong shrugged, smashing his lips together and smiling oddly, “By going along with the Qin family’s and Old Lady Chen’s conspiracy and putting a plan in place to send me to a place like the Black Prison to sharpen me, indeed, I grew up very quickly in the Black Prison, so quickly that I now feel a little like I was dreaming.”
The light in Chen Daolin’s eyes flickered, and he was about to open his mouth to speak.
Chen Dong, however, looked hostile: “If my mother hadn’t died, I would only be grateful to you even if I knew about it, because I know that if I want to be the head of the Chen family, there are simply too many shortcomings for a qualified heir like me, and a place like the Black Prison is enough to make me grow quickly.”
“But you, it was because of this trick of yours to hide the truth from the world, knowing full well the conspiracy of the Qin family and Old Lady Chen, knowing full well that the person who accompanied my mother and Little Shadow and the others during this month was Zhou Xuan, who was a substitute for Li, yet you did not intervene, did not intervene, did not act at all.”
“If you had crushed the conspiracy in the first place, would my mother have died? Even Xiaoying would have fallen into Zhou Xuan’s hands, and even Qin Ye would have nearly died, if Xiaoying had not been suspicious, and if Qin Ye had not always insisted on defying death.”
“Dong’er, I ……”
Chen Daolin’s face changed greatly, he also did not know that things would suddenly go beyond his control.
“Just for sharpening me, the price you have inflicted is too heavy and too heavy!”
Chen Dong roared in anger, his right hand clenched into a fist and swung out brazenly, blasting directly at Chen Daoling’s face.
