“Madam, are you calling me because of the matter regarding that breakfast stall?”

Jiang Yuan signaled Chen Zhang Hao [1] to sit down, her temperament was still mild, “Right, I want to ask you, if you have found out, who actually foiled my plans behind my back?”

Chen Zhang Hao hesitated for a moment, “Madam, I haven’t found out.”

“Haven’t found out?” Jiang Yuan’s eyes showed a color of doubt, “She is an ordinary small street peddler, how come she could make the director to apologize to her personally? The one who’s willing to help her must be Bai Han Qi, but Bai Han Qi doesn’t have any social connections! If he really has one, he won’t be so disgusting now! It’s really strange, who actually oppose me?”

Chen Zhang Hao’s gaze wavered around, he didn’t dare to look at Jiang Yuan’s face.

Jiang Yuan sighed, “I really don’t understand how Bai Han Qi thinks, letting my son to eat those filthy things all day, so I searched for someone to smash her stall! He really ruined my plan, he could also force the director to hand over his brother in-law’s shop front, to keep on selling those junk food! I pity my own son, eating those stuffs every day, he has a good condition yet cannot enjoy it. As his mother, how can I not get worried?”

“As a matter of fact, I think those food are pretty good, if compared to eating at Kentucky Fried Chicken or McDonald’s?”

“Good?” Jiang Yuan laughed mockingly, “Do you know, nowadays many street peddlers are evil-minded? As long as their food doesn’t kill anyone, they will dare to put anything inside it. If my son only ate them once in awhile, I won’t fuss about it, the main thing is he eats there every day, a lot of days has already passed, what will become of his body if he keep on wasting his health?”

Chen Zhang Hao smiled, “Madam, even if you smash that stall, he can still eat at another stall. Perhaps the other stalls aren’t as neat as this stall, what you do is treating the symptoms but not the root cause.”

“I’m doing this to let Bai Han Qi see!” Jiang Yuan was somewhat angry, “I’m sure he will treat his son unfairly, in order to win that widow’s favor.”

Chen Zhang Hao had nothing to say.

Jiang Yuan went silent for a long time, once again asking while facing towards Chen Zhang Hao, “You really hadn’t found out anything?”

Chen Zhang Hao made an ‘ng’ voice.

“Okay then, you don’t need to pretend anymore, I can see it already long time ago.” Jiang Yuan’s eye showed shrewd light, “You go ahead and speak out, if you speak out your problem, it won’t hang above your head.”

“That’s not it…… Madam, the crucial problem is this man……. He is somewhat special.”

“Special?” Jiang Yuan’s face showed despicable color, “I would like to hear, how special he is!”

“He is…… the son of General Gu.”

Gu Hai?

The complexion of Jiang Yuan’s face immediately changed, how come Gu Hai intervene in this matter?

“Are you sure it was him?”

Chen Zhang Hao nodded his head.

Jiang Yuan sank into contemplation, how come Gu Hai helped that woman without any reason? How come he knew  about this matter? Don’t tell me there is his spy on this side? No matter what I do, is he going to interfere?

“Today seems to be that small restaurant’s grand opening.” Chen Zhang Hao muttered a sentence without thinking.

Jiang Yuan’s facial expression became different, then she got up and left the meeting place.


Bai Luo Yin was stranded in another kind of realm[2], he leaned against while his head hung forward as if he could kowtow at any moment.

Gu Hai pushed Bai Luo Yin lightly, then Bai Luo Yin stumbled unguardedly towards the other side, Gu Hai immediately took a large stride towards him, just in time for Bai Luo Yin to fell into Gu Hai’s embrace.

Bai Luo Yin exerted all his strength to stand, then opened his eyelid and gave Gu Hai a glance, “Are the table number sign placed already?”

“All done since this morning, you should go upstairs and take a nap.”

Bai Luo Yin pushed Gu Hai away, stretching his body, “I will finish the work first, then take a nap!”

“There are five officers here already, right? What are you worrying about?”

“Don’t you see that the five officers are having a promotion to attract customers?”

Seeing these five officers outside, turning back and forth in chaos regardless of their officer image, Gu Hai felt really delighted.

“Son, come here, help dad lift this table downstairs.”  Bai Han Qi’s voice came from upstairs.

Gu Hai restrained Bai Han Qi to stay, then he himself bolted upstairs, as if he was walking on air beautifully.

Bai Luo Yin pushed the door open and went outside to breathe some fresh air. He then saw a familiar car parked at a place not far away.

A woman came down from the car.

Different from the past, this time Bai Luo Yin didn’t avoid Jiang Yuan, rather he took the initiative to walk towards her. He had a premonition that Jiang Yuan will come to this shop, he really wanted to ask Jiang Yuan, how long would she keep doing this?

Gu Hai moved the table downstairs and found that Bai Luo Yin had disappeared.

Gu Hai conveniently dragged one attendant and asked, “Where did Bai Luo Yin go?”

“Eh….?! He was here a moment ago.”

“I saw him”, another attendant interrupted, “He went out through the door, seems like someone is looking for him. Nah, isn’t he right there?”

Gu Hai then, along with the waiter, looked outside.
