203 There Will Be People to Protect You
“Didn’t we help the police get evidence for Ruan Cheng’s shooting?”
Sang Minglang said very calmly, “President Shen specially came to thank you.”
Sang Qianqian was silent for a moment before entering the house. “I’ll go upstairs first.”
“By the way, Qianqian, I forgot to tell you that President Shen will be staying in Beijing for a long time because of work.”
Sang Minglang’s voice came from behind. “We’re really going to be neighbors with him in the future.”
Sang Qianqian staggered and almost fell.
She stayed in the room for a long while, until Sang Minglang called to tell her that Aunt Zhao’s meal was ready and she could go down to eat.
Only then did she come down lowly.
Aunt Zhao smiled. “I didn’t know President Shen could cook. Miss Sang, can you guess which dish President Shen made?”
Sang Qianqian subconsciously looked at the dishes on the table. She could tell at a glance that the West Lake Fish in vinegar sauce was Shen Hanyu’s handiwork.
Aunt Zhao’s dishes tasted good, but they were not as ‘appetizing’.
Shen Hanyu’s dishes were different.
Every dish he made had his own unique style. Just like him, it was pleasing to the eye and meticulous. Not only was the color, smell, and taste perfect, but even the details of the plate presentation were full marks.
She looked at Aunt Zhao’s expectant eyes. Sang Qianqian deliberately avoided the fish and pointed at a plate of spicy chicken. “This one?”
“No, no, it’s this West Lake Vinegar Fish.”
Aunt Zhao smiled and said, “It wasn’t that Miss Sang wanted to eat it last time, but I couldn’t make the taste that Miss Sang wanted, so I asked President Shen for guidance. President Shen personally demonstrated how to make it to me, and I finally learned it.”
Sang Qianqian’s fair face turned red in an instant, and she was extremely embarrassed. Shen Hanyu had made this dish for her once, and she liked it very much.
After coming to Beijing, there was one day when she inexplicably wanted to eat this dish and asked Aunt Zhao if she knew how to cook it.
Aunt Zhao’s cooking, however, tasted very different from what she remembered.
She stopped eating after two bites. Aunt Zhao knew that she didn’t cook well and asked her where she used to eat and who made it. She also asked if she could help ask how to make it.
She vaguely said that her husband had done it in the past, but they had broken up a long time ago, so she couldn’t ask. After that, she never asked Aunt Zhao to cook this dish again.
She had thought that the matter would be over, but who would have thought that Aunt Zhao would reveal this embarrassing incident in front of Shen Hanyu?
And how did Aunt Zhao know that Shen Hanyu was her ex-husband?
Sang Qianqian looked at Shen Hanyu in a panic. “I-I just wanted to eat this dish. I didn’t mean anything else.”
“I only taught Aunt Zhao how to cook this dish.”
“I didn’t mean anything else,” Shen Hanyu said indifferently.
“Alright, alright. It’s just a dish. What are you two still doing over there?”
Sang Minglang pulled over a chair. “Sit down and eat.”
At the long dining table, Sang Minglang sat at the head of the table, while Sang Qianqian and Shen Hanyu sat on either side.
Sang Qianqian could feel Shen Hanyu’s gaze on her from time to time.
Perhaps it wasn’t intentional, but because their seats were facing each other, he couldn’t help but look up and see her.
Sang Qianqian felt like she was sitting on pins and needles.
Shen Hanyu, on the other hand, was extremely calm. He would even chat with Sang Minglang from time to time, talking about business matters.
However, the two of them had a tacit understanding and didn’t mention the Ruan family or the shooting.
Sang Qianqian lowered her head and ate silently. They were almost done eating, but she hadn’t touched the plate of West Lake Vinegar Fish.
Shen Hanyu was talking to her brother, so she didn’t know how he found out about this.
The man’s gaze swept past her without a change in expression. In the next second, there was a huge piece of fish in Sang Qianqian’s bowl.
Sang Qianqian’s eating motion stiffened slightly as she looked up at him with an inexplicable emotion.
“Miss Sang, don’t you like this dish?”
Shen Hanyu looked at her with a deep gaze. “Speaking of which, I have to thank you, Miss Sang, for helping me get the key evidence to restart the police investigation.”
Sang Qianqian was silent for a moment before saying softly, “You’re welcome. I just happened to be playing around with Xie Shi’an’s hypnosis and recorded a video. It wasn’t for you.”
Shen Hanyu smiled and said in a playful tone, “Miss Sang, you don’t have to explain. Didn’t we already break up? Of course, I know that you didn’t do it for me.”
As soon as he finished speaking, his phone rang. Shen Hanyu glanced at the caller ID, picked up the phone, and stood up. “Excuse me for a bit.”
He walked to the floor-to-ceiling window in the living room and picked up the call. “Fang Lan, what’s wrong?”
His voice was very low, and from afar, there was an illusion of warmth. Sang Qianqian felt her cheeks burning.
Perhaps she was really overthinking it. He already had a girlfriend, so how could he still want anything to do with her?
After the meal, she sent Shen Hanyu off.
Sang Qianqian felt the pressure in the air disappear. She was like a fish that had returned to the water, and her breathing became more relaxed.
Sang Minglang looked like he was in a heavy mood. He looked at his younger sister a few times, wanting to say something, but then stopped.
Sang Qianqian was inexplicably nervous. “Brother, did something happen?”
“Qianqian, I might have to make a trip back to Yuecheng.”
Sang Minglang was in a difficult position. “The company produced a batch of medical equipment, but the business partner insisted that there was a problem and returned it. The amount involved is not small. I’ve personally contacted that partner before, and he’s also a key customer of the company. Dad wants me to go back and settle it.”
Sang Qianqian’s heart began to race. “Could it be related to Ruan Cheng?”
“It should be fine.”
Sang Minglang thought for a moment. “Ruan Cheng can’t even take care of himself now, and his hands can’t reach that far. This is probably an unexpected situation.”
Sang Qianqian was still worried. “No matter what, Brother, you and Father must be careful when you go back this time.”
Sang Minglang nodded, “Trust me, it’s really just an issue in the capital.”
He looked at Sang Qianqian meaningfully, “There will be people to protect you.”
Now that Ruan Cheng had been released from prison, Qianqian’s situation would be very dangerous.
He had to travel between Beijing and Yuecheng alone, sometimes even Ming City. He was really afraid that he wouldn’t be able to protect his sister.
Moreover, Shen Hanyu was more thoughtful than he was. Sang Minglang believed that Shen Hanyu would not let anything happen to his sister.
This was also the reason why he had agreed to let Shen Hanyu visit and tell Qianqian that they would be long-term neighbors.
At the very least, it would give Qianqian some time to mentally accept it.
Alas, it wasn’t the right time to reveal his plan with Shen Hanyu. However, if Shen Hanyu took care of her sister as her neighbor when Sang Minglang wasn’t in the capital, she wouldn’t be too against it.
Inside the Ruan family’s corporation building.
Xie Shi’an’s expression, which had always been gentle and calm, was unusually grave at this moment.
During this period of time, the Ruan family had offended some big shot, and the port’s system had been experiencing many problems.
It seemed that there was a deliberate attack by a hacker. It was useless to call the police. No matter how strong the defense was, the system would be breached after a few days.
The attacks continued, but they were powerless and could only passively endure the effects.
Ruan Xiaoshuang came in with a document, looking extremely haggard. “Shi’an, look at this…”
Before she could finish her sentence, she turned her head to the side and covered her mouth as she retched.
