Seeing that Cai Yan kept quiet, Zhenxiu thought that she wasnt planning on letting Yang Chen go. Looking sorrowful, Zhenxiu turned her head to look at Yang Chen, saying, Uncle, its all my fault. I got you into this.
Yang Chen smiled bitterly as he reached out to pinch Zhenxius powdery face. Stupid Girl, what are you talking about?
Zhenxiu didnt know what to do a moment ago. Now that her face just got pinched by Yang Chen, her cheeks turned pink slightly.
Cai Yan, do me a favor. This kid here isnt terrible deep down her heart. Although shes done various bad things in the past, forget about them all at once. Let her go today and take care of the three troublesome fellows. Dont let them provoke Zhenxiu anymore, Yang Chen said.
Cai Yan said happily, Oh, even you need my favor?
Dont I? You are a police chief while Im a small civilian. Were not standing at the same level, Yang Chen said.
I can do you a favor, but you need to convince me with other reasons. I dont think I need to do you a favor just because youre a small civilian. There are civilians everywhere, am I required to help every single one of them? Cai Yan asked before crossing her arms in front of her chest, making her firm bosom bounce for a bit.
Yang Chen cast a glance. Ahem, ahem. Alright, were considered friends after all. Were
At this situation Yang Chen had to put his pride down to make it work.
Cai Yan seemed very pleased. Nodding, she said, Alright, you really did help me quite a lot. I understand you rather well as well. Ill let whatever happened today pass.
Listening to Cai Yan who promised to ignore this matter, Zhenxiu who looked despondent, as if she was stuck in layers of dark clouds, couldnt believe what just happened.
Zhenxiu, Cai Yan said with a serious expression. Xu Zhenxiu, you were still underage the first time you came here. You were involved in theft, overspeeding and a group fight. I remember all of them. These records will only do you harm at such a young age. Yang Chen helped you today, and I believe that you are determined to change your ways. Ill only help you this once, so dont take this matter too lightly. If you dont perform well in the future and I see you here again, Ill be extra strict towards you.
Zhenxiu lightly bit her lips as tears slowly filled her big eyes up. She stood up and bowed thrice towards Cai Yan thankfully.
Chief Cai, thank you. I will be a good person from now on. I wont do anything illegal anymore
Smiling, Cai Yan patted Zhenxius head. Thank this troublesome uncle instead. You heard the conversation earlier, Im just doing him a favor.
After listening to Cai Yan, Zhenxiu stopped crying and looked at Yang Chen smilingly with an extraordinary warmth.
Since Cai Yan was present, everything naturally went smoothly. Yang Chen noticed that it was great having a friend who had authority. Although this friend of his constantly got him into trouble.
After everything was settled, Cai Yan also helped Zhenxiu to get her trolley stall back, making Zhenxiu feel touched once again.
During the process of getting everything done, Yang Chen got bored and asked Cai Yan regarding Zhenxius past. Cai Yan briefed him through Zhenxius background, which she happened to know through previous cases.
Zhenxius mom was a Korean while her dad was a Chinese businessman. After they got married, her dads business went bankrupt due to an unexpected investment. As a result, he abandoned Zhenxiu and her mother. When Zhenxiu was young, her mother died due to uterine cancer, so she was brought up in an orphanage. As a result of getting bullied, she got forced to walk the wrong path. She repeatedly got arrested and brought into the police station, where she would get educated by the police officers, making her to slowly turn good again.
When Cai Yan talked about Zhenxius past, it was unclear whether Zhenxiu was listening or not. She didnt react while she went through the formalities with some police officers.
After the incident ended, Cai Yan sent the two out of the police station.
At this moment, Zhenxiu held Yang Chens hand as her face reddened in silence.
Yang Chen felt that this girl was really interesting. She changed from the original chilli pepper to an obedient little girl. She would ponder before she spoke.
Tell me, Kiddo. What do you want to say? Yang Chen asked.
Clenching her teeth, she pulled Yang Chen to a corner to avoid being seen by Cai Yan and the other police officers. She removed a pendant with red string from her neck. It looked like an old metal accessory. Crescent-shaped, it reflected soft light under the dim lighting.
Zhenxiu put the crescent pendant on Yang Chens palm. Shyness, determination and happiness filled her shiny eyes. Uncle, this is for you, she said.
What is this? Yang Chen asked before smirking. Is this an item of love affair? Miss Zhenxiu, Im actually married already. Youre asking me to cheat this way.
Zhenxiu revealed her cute fangs and made a funny face. What are you talking about? Whos getting into a love affair with you? This is what my mom left me, its said to be an amulet. Ill give it to Uncle, she said.
Yang Chen stopped joking around. Smiling, he asked, How can I accept something this precious?
Uncle is the first one whos willing to stand out and protect me. Youre also the first person who gave me a good human treatment. In the past, Ive always felt that this amulet granted me protection. Now, I dont need to be afraid anymore as long as theres Uncle, Zhenxiu said with a serious expression.
Stupid Girl, I cant hang on your chest. How can I be an amulet? Yang Chen asked as he scratched his head. He did something so insignificant, but Zhenxiu showed this much appreciation.
Human treatment? Were all her previous treatments given by non-humans?
Pouting, Zhenxiu said, As long as I keep thinking of Uncle in my heart, Uncle will be able to protect me. Take it with you, at least make me feel that youll think of me too.
As warmth started to fill Yang Chens heart, he received the crescent pendant. Alright, Ill help you take care of this. But you have to tell me a way to contact you. I dont want this to be the last time I see you. I want to see whether you still do bad things or not.
Zhenxius eyes shone, but slowly got down again. I dont have a phone number How about this? Ill set up my stall nearby the street earlier for breakfast and supper. If Uncle is free, you may visit me there. Ill be obedient for sure.
Will you still be stingy when it comes to how much I need to pay? Yang Chen asked.
Zhenxiu snicked. She said, If Uncle brings Sister-In-Law for me to see, Ill give you a discount. However, do you really have a wife?
Can I really lie about this? Yang Chen asked smilingly.
Oh Zhenxius expression didnt reveal any feeling. Then Uncle, if you bring Sister-In-Law over, Ill give you a discount. Erm 5% discount! What do you think of my generosity?!
Miser Yang Chen tapped Zhenxius forehead which made her pout once again.
In his heart, Yang Chen felt really comfortable. He really liked this feeling, maybe due to the fact that Zhenxiu was similarly an orphan, and similarly had a depressing past. Yang Chen felt particularly empathetic. He really didnt hope this to be the last time they met.
After giving out the present, Zhenxiu walked away unwillingly. She would turn her head around thrice every step she took. Yang Chen felt that Zhenxiu was still an eighteen-year-old, cute girl after all, following the melting of her ice-cold shell.
When he looked at the crescent pendant which exerted Zhenxius natural body scent, he got shocked. He previously didnt notice, but when he took a closer look, he found out that the pendant was made of platinum. Thinking that Zhenxius parents were businessmen, it started making sense.
At this moment, there were only two people left at the entrance of the police station, Cai Yan and Yang Chen. She intentionally coughed twice, saying, Uncle Yang, how do you feel, now that a little girl got hooked?
Yang Chen carefully kept the pendant and smiled helplessly. Cai Yan, dont speak nonsense. Although Im not any good, I really dont have that kind of intention towards Zhenxiu.
Are you going to tell me that its siblings love? Cai Yan asked as she squinted.
Erm Yang Chen pondered. That seems to be the case. Id be happy if she was my sister.
No ones going to believe you Cai Yan took a black casing out and passed it to Yang Chen. Hey, this ones for you.
Looking at Cai Yan who took out a treasure like Doraemon, Yang Chen got shocked. What is it?
Take a look for yourself and youll know, Cai Yan mumbled. Her expression turned unnatural.
Yang Chen received the box cautiously and felt that the casing had some weight to it. Upon opening it, he suddenly felt speechless.
Within the box, on top of a light-golden gauze, there lay a delicate Rolex watch. Although it didnt cost a fortune, he could tell that it was expensive, judging from the respectable amount of real gold and powdered diamond engraved.
Cai Yan saw that Yang Chen was looking at the watch in silence. Nervous, she asked, Do you like it?
Yang Chen raised his head and looked at Cai Yan weirdly. Is this for me? he asked.
Do you think that I bought it for myself? Its a mens watch. Cai Yan inserted her hands into the pockets of her shirt, lowered her head, and unnaturally stood on her toes. It was evident that she wasnt calm.
Yang Chen closed the casing and let out a smile. Thank you, but I cant have it. This is too costly.
How costly can a watch be? I I just want to thank you for saving me last time. Seeing that you never wore a watch, I thought that I could buy you one, Cai Yan explained quickly.
Yang Chen shook his head. You cant simply give out watches. After you give it to me, I have to wear it. Once I wear it, therell be people asking who I got it from. Were just ordinary friends. Misunderstandings would arise this way.
Cai Yan suddenly turned pale. Are you embarrassed? Do you feel embarrassed that I gave you a watch?
Frowning, Yang Chen replied, Thats not what I meant. I just felt that its inappropriate.
I knew it Cai Yan murmured as her eyes got wet. You say with your mouth that were friends, but deep down your heart, you hate me, you feel that Im stupid, you feel that Im useless, you feel that I dont match being your friend, and ultimately, Im not qualified to give you a present, am I?
Yang Chen smiled bitterly. Where is this going? he thought.
Cai Yan, I really didnt overthink it. I cant keep this watch. This isnt an ordinary present. I dont mean anything else. Yang Chen didnt know how to explain.
Give it to me!
Cai Yan snatched the watch casing and stared at Yang Chen angrily, before walking away quickly.
As she walked, she scolded, Stupid Yang Chen! Hateful Yang Chen! Its my first time giving a man a present and you dared to reject me! Ill arrest you every time I see you in the future! Stupid Yang Chen! Hateful Yang Chen
Looking at Cai Yan walk away, he sighed deeply. The corners of his lips revealed bitterness. He could accept other women, but definitely not Cai Yan. She was Lin Ruoxis close friend. It was difficult enough that he had something going on with Mo Qianni. If Cai Yan was added to the equation, Lin Ruoxi might be pissed to death. Furthermore, Yang Chen and Cai Yan didnt have love in between to begin with. It was best to break it when it still could be broken...
