Chapter 52 The name in the ring
On Monday, Fengmiao Building.
Qin Miao wore a decent suit. Because of the cold weather, he added on a coat, but in winter, at the end of December, it still looked very thin.
Zhao Kai was very sincere, wearing a long coat like a bear.
But after the two entered the building, it didn’t matter what they were wearing, the constant temperature in the room forced everyone who entered to take off their jackets.
After Qin Miao and Zhao Kai walked into the elevator, they directly pressed the highest floor. The elevator rose quickly, and they reached the executive office on the highest floor of Fengmiao in less than a minute.
Qin Han, who was wearing a coat, was holding a glass of water, quietly listening to the assistant reporting about work. As soon as he saw his younger brother appear, he raised his hand and motioned his assistant to stop and to talk later.
Then he smiled at Qin Miao and greeted him, “You’ve arrived.”
Qin Miao nodded to Qin Han. The height difference between the two brothers was quite large. As a Beta, his elder brother had to look up at his younger brother.
“Why did you have to call me here? Are all the elites who graduated from prestigious schools under your command all eating for free?” Qin Miao was not satisfied, “I have already given up on Fengmiao’s affairs.”
Qin Han shook his head: “You are the best at goofing off. I work like a spinning top in the company every day, but you go to the villa every few days for vacation.”
Hearing this, Qin Miao glanced at Zhao Kai behind him. Who could have told Qin Han about him going to the villa,. Zhao Kai pretended to be innocent. I couldn’t find you anywhere. Of course, I had to ask everyone about your whereabouts.
“Okay, don’t look at Zhao Kai, he just wanted to urge you to go back to work. Since you’re so idle, do me a favor, I’m sure you won’t mind.” Qin Han said, “And I can’t find anyone who knows more about the Reese Federation.”
Qin Miao sat down casually on the sofa in the office, throwing his coat aside: “That was three years ago. After that incident, I don’t care about the Reese Federation. The word Reese Federation has been blocked on all my devices.”
His younger brother had become more and more unbridled in recent years. Qin Han ignored his absurd remarks and continued: “You should know that Feng Miao has recently been negotiating contracts with several companies in the Reese Federation.”
Qin Miao said “en”, agreing that he did hear.
“Look at the information on your desk.” Qin Han raised his chin, “I want you to provide me with some more information.”
Qin Miao picked up the information as instructed and quickly turned a few pages.
“What information can I give you? I’m not a database.” Qin Miao complained, but his hands didn’t stop. Suddenly, he turned to a certain page and saw a portrait photo.
Qin Han was keenly aware of his pause. He came over and saw the content of the page, and said, “I think you should give me some information that I can’t find – like this person.”
Qin Miao’s mouth became taut at an unknown time. He stared at the photo of the document in his hand, before slowly asking, “Who is this person?”
Although the details of this person were on the next page, Qin Han still patiently explained to his younger brother: “This person is the illegitimate child recognized by the Maxson family recently. His name is Levi. He is an Alpha. If there is no accident, he will become the heir of this generation.”
Qin Miao held the information in one hand, and another hand rested on his knee. His palm was suspended in the air, and one finger unconsciously tapped the air, a small movement when he was deep in thought.
“You must think there is something wrong with him.” Qin Han was determined.
“Nonsense.” Qin Miao frowned, but didn’t say more. He just silently turned to the next page and looked at Levi’s information.
Qin Han didn’t rush him, and waited for him to read slowly.
After reading it, Qin Miao threw the information back on the table and said to his brother, “I’m not sure yet. Give me a few days, and I’ll have someone check this Levi and tell you.”
The brothers then exchanged opinions on the signing of the contract. Qin Miao did not agree with Qin Han’s selection of Federal Express as the first candidate. Qin Han shrugged helplessly: “I know you hate Maxson, but a company is not something where only one person has the final say.”
Qin Miao did not participate in Fengmiao’s work, nor did he have the right to speak out, so he left after saying goodbye to his brother.
A few days passed in a hurry, and the engagement ceremony was imminent.
The Qin family’s old house was very large and was chosen as the place for the engagement ceremony, which was more private and safer for the Qin family.
A black car slid smoothly into the parking garage of the Qin family’s old house. Qin Miao stepped down from the driver’s seat, and a tall man also stepped down from the co-pilot, it was Chu Suiyun.
Qin Miao turned around and smiled at Chu Suiyun. Chu Suiyun looked blank and urged, “What are you smiling at, open the trunk.”
Being interrupted by the incomprehensible “fiancee”, Qin Miao was not annoyed. He obediently walked to the trunk to open it, and then helped Chu Suiyun to carry the luggage down.
The suitcase was very light, and only contained the things that Chu Suiyun might use for the next two days.
The two took their luggage, came out of the garage, and went around to the main entrance. Qin Miao put the suit case at his feet and opened the lock with his fingerprints.
The Qin family’s old house has been redecorated and cleaned everywhere. There were various wine glasses at the bar, and the living room had been transformed into a banquet hall. Dozens of tables have been set up, and every table will be filled tomorrow, serving delicious food that anyone can take.
Mother Qin was inspecting the preparations in the hall, and when she heard the sound of the door opening, she turned around and showed a beaming smile when she saw Chu Suiyun.
“Come on, Xiao Xue, come in quickly!” Mother Qin stepped forward to say hello. She grabbed Chu Suiyun’s hand affectionately, and took him to the sofa.
Chu Suiyun was grabbed by Mother Qin and dragged to the front. Qin Miao pulled the suitcase and silently followed behind his mother and Chu Suiyun.
“Let’s go through tomorrow’s process with Mom.” Mother Qin said very naturally.
Chu Suiyun was stunned for a moment, very surprised by Mother Qin’s self-proclaimed title. He suddenly felt a little uncomfortable in his hands and feet.
What kind of character is Mother Qin, even such a small change in Chu Suiyun’s demeanor could not escape her eyes. She deliberately said while it was hot, “Ah, did I say what I thought in my heart? Xiao Xue don’t feel that Auntie is in a hurry.”
Chu Suiyun, who is not good at getting along with elders, shook his head and replied, “No.”
Thinking that Mother Qin had slipped, he didn’t know how Mother Qin understood it. She immediately asked: “That means Xiao Xue, you are willing to call me ‘mom’?”
“Ah?” Chu Suiyun was shocked, embarrassed, and subconsciously looked back at Qin Miao.
Before his eyes could fall on Qin Miao, Mother Qin held his face and turned it to herself: “Don’t look at Lao Er, I’m asking you.”
“Xiao Xue, look the engagement ceremony is tomorrow. Please call me and let me hear it in advance.” Mother Qin smiled and persuaded him carefully.
Chu Suiyun lowered his head, unable to hold back, and whispered, “…Mom.”
“Ah!” Mother Qin smiled happily. The more she looked, the more she liked this daughter-in-law. She smiled and told Chu Suiyun about tomorrow’s process, and when she talked about the guests, she suddenly fell silent.
Mother Qin thought of something, sighed, and regretted: “It’s a pity that I can’t see your parents, Xiao Xue. We must meet in the future. I have to thank them for raising you into such a good child.”
Chu Suiyun smiled reluctantly: “Don’t worry. My parents and I don’t have a good relationship. We haven’t been in touch for many years.”
This was true, not as Chu Xue, but as Chu Suiyun.
Mother Qin was hearing about this for the first time. She was a little surprised and looked at Chu Suiyun lovingly: “No wonder you haven’t mentioned your parents, then let’s treat it as if I didn’t mention it. We’ll have a chance to think about it later.”
The two formally went through the process, and Qin Miao listened beside them. After, Mother Qin let them go back to the room to rest.
Walking into Qin Miao’s room again, Chu Suiyun no longer had any special feeling. It was not difficult to predict that the two would be in the same room. After all, their relationship was a “fiancee couple”, so naturally the Qin family would not make any special arrangements for them.
Qin Miao put the suit case against the wall and saw Chu Suiyun staring at the bed in a daze. Guessing that he was minding sleeping with him at night, he took the initiative to say, “How about I lay on the floor?”
“No.” Chu Suiyun shook his head, “The bed is quite big.”
“That’s good. Actually, I didn’t really want to sleep on the floor.” Qin Miao directly exposed his true thoughts.
Chu Suiyun gave him an eye roll, he had expected that Qin Miao’s words were just out of politeness.
After putting away the suitcase, Qin Miao walked to the closet, took out his home clothes, and said to Chu Suiyun: “I’m going to take a bath, you can rest in bed for a while, it will be very busy tomorrow.”
“En.” Chu Suiyun responded and sat down directly on the bed.
Then Qin Miao entered the bathroom, and after a while there was the sound of water. Chu Suiyun sat on the bed and had nothing to do, so he looked at the whole room.
The room was exactly the same as when Chu Suiyun came here last time. It was decorated in the classical style of Yunguo. The cleanliness revealed a breath of life, but it did not fit Qin Miao. It was more like “part of the Qin family’s old house”.
There was a TV table at the end of the bed, a green plant was placed on the table, and an LCD TV was hung on the wall. There were also bedside tables of the same color on both sides of the bed, only the left side had a night light, and there was nothing on the right side table.
No, there was something.
Chu Suiyun was a little surprised. According to the Qin family’s cleaning style, there should be no sundries on the table. Out of curiosity, Chu Suiyun got up and walked over.
It was a jewelry box.
Chu Suiyun reached out and picked up the box. The more he looked at it, the more familiar it became. After a few seconds, he remembered that this was the ring that Qin Miao and himself bought together.
The boxes of the two rings were the same. Chu Suiyun owned one, so he remembered it so clearly.
After figuring out what it was, Chu Suiyun lost interest and prepared to put the ring box back in place.
But at the moment when the box touched the table again, Chu Suiyun suddenly remembered the episode when they bought the ring.
Originally, there was only one engagement ring, but Qin Miao insisted on buying one for himself, and solemnly engraved it in the shop.
Chu Suiyun’s one was engraved with “MyLoveQinmiao”, and it was inferred from common sense that Qin Miao’s one should be engraved with the pseudonym “Chu Xue” but Chu Suiyun suddenly had a hunch that what was engraved in Qin Miao’s ring would not be “Chu Xue”.
Because if this was the case, then when Chu Suiyun asked to take a look, Qin Miao had no reason to refuse.
In addition, whether it was at the beginning of the agreement or some time ago, when Chu Suiyun asked why Qin Miao didn’t find an Omega to marry and treat his illness, based off of Qin Miao’s words, Chu Suiyun had a good grasp that the ring’s name should be the person Qin Miao said he can’t love freely.
Chu Suiyun’s thoughts were intertwined, and when he came back to his senses, the ring box lid had been opened by himself, and the silver ring shone in front of him.
Want to look?
Chu Suiyun didn’t know. He wanted to see it, but he didn’t dare to.
He didn’t know what he expected to see on the ring.
See “Chu Xue”? That means that this ring was just a prop for a fake engagement to Qin Miao. See another person’s name? That shows that Chu Suiyun’s guess was correct. Qin Miao did have a person who he can’t love freely. Even if he was playing with others, he had a trace of guilt in his heart, so he engraved his name on the ring to reveal his heart. But why guess, he wouldn’t be happy either way.
Chu Suiyun was never an indecisive person. He realized that his feelings for Qin Miao had changed, and he boasted that he would not be troubled by it, but at this moment, he felt that he had become the protagonist of an ancient and vulgar love drama. His inner thoughts was nothing like a rational and decisive Alpha.
In the end, the decisiveness in Chu Suiyun’s bones still helped him. Whether he saw it or not, the facts were fixed and could not be changed.
Chu Suiyun picked up the ring, raised his eyes, and saw the yin and yang patterns reflected by the sunlight shining in from the window.
Inside the ring, a name was engraved in Junxiu’s cursive script.
