Zhong Nuannuan smiled. “Of course. My Big Brother Chi Yang is so excellent. How can I not be excellent too?”
Leng Jinpeng laughed loudly at Zhong Nuannuan’s remark.
“Uncle Leng, you should laugh more so that you can get better faster.”
“Sure, I’ll just listen to everything you say. Sigh, it’s unfortunate that my Lil Rui doesn’t have this luck. I would not give up a daughter-in-law like you even for Chi Yang.”
“Uncle Leng, don’t worry. Leng Qirui will definitely find someone that’s suitable for him.”
“That’s a bit far-fetched. That kid is unreliable. I won’t rely on him to find me a daughter-in-law as things stand. I just hope that he can be like you and study well. Even if he can’t get into a good university, at least he can support himself and not tyrannize everyone with his family background. Nuannuan, Lil Rui and you are from the same school, so please take care of him for me. If he dares to cause trouble in school, just hit him as hard as you can.”
When Zhong Nuannuan heard that she could beat Leng Jinpeng as she pleased, she was happy. She instantly nodded. “Alright! I will hit him properly.”
Leng Jinpeng was alarmed. ‘Why does it feel like I made a huge mistake?’
Leng Qirui chuckled. ‘This was indeed his biological father!’
Zhong Nuannuan felt that she was rejoicing too much in other people’s misfortune, so she cleared her throat awkwardly and said sincerely, “Uncle Leng, even if I don’t interact with Leng Qirui a lot, I feel that he’s a nice person deep down. He’s just a bit difficult at times.”
Leng Jinpeng shook his head. “You don’t have to put in a good word for him. I know what he’s like. Sigh, I raised both of them the same way, but I have no idea why Lil Rui turned out so different compared to Lil Hai.”
“Lil Hai? Uncle Leng, do you mean Ye Hai?”
“Yeah. You’ve met him. He’s also my son.”
“He’s not your biological son.”
When Leng Jinpeng saw that there was disdain on Zhong Nuannuan’s face, he immediately tried to put in a good word for his adopted son.
“Even if he’s not my biological son, I still treat him as if he were my own flesh and blood. In our house, there’s no difference in Lil Hai and Lil Rui’s statuses.”
“I’m sure Uncle Leng has heard the story of the farmer and the snake, right?”
Leng Jinpeng’s expression froze. “Nuannuan, what do you mean by this?”
“It’s nothing, but I just want to remind Uncle Leng. Even if he’s really close to you, at the end of the day, he’s not your biological son. It’s fine if he’s not venomous, but if he is, it’ll be too late once he bites the person that’s closest to him.”
Zhong Nuannuan’s hints were obvious.
What she meant was, it did not matter whether Ye Hai was poisonous or not. At the end of the day, he was still a snake. In addition to that, the person that he wanted to bite was the person closest to Leng Jinpeng.
Now, the person closest to Leng Jinpeng was his only son Lil Rui.
Leng Jinpeng’s pupils dilated. His eyes were filled with shock.
“The person who did that to Lil Rui was”
Leng Jinpeng did not say it out loud because he simply could not.
“I don’t know who had ordered the hit on Leng Qirui last night. However, Leng Qirui is just a student. He plays games when he has nothing to do. What kind of profound hatred would attract this kind of action?
“The person last night intended to kill him. Worse still, this was not the first time he was targeted. Uncle Leng, even though Leng Qirui’s is quite proficient in fighting, he’s still not a professional. Even if he were, it’d be hard for him to defeat two people on his own. Thus, it’s better for you to hire a few people you trust to protect him since you know his enemies could be in any direction. After all, he won’t be so lucky every single time.”
