Chapter 97.1 — Sorry
Edited by: Larkspur
When Qin Jiran hurried back home, he was greeted by a Su Yanyi sipping tea in the living room. He examined her from head to toe. She didn’t seem to have any injuries. His heart that had been hanging by the edge thus far, finally calmed down. What was that saying, ah — if you’re safe, it will be a sunny day!
He sat next to Yanyi, held onto her hands tightly, feeling incomparably content.
“Were you scared?” Su Yanyi stared at the man’s expression, as if she could feel his worried and nervous mood too.
“I really thought something happened to you.” When Jiang Xiaobin said that Yanyi had been attacked, he panicked. He felt like his whole world had trembled a bit and he couldn’t even stand up steadily.
“I’m fine. Don’t worry.” Su Yanyi held his hands back, comforting once again. It seemed like she’d really scared the man this time. Her expression changed. She should’ve kept him in the loop.
Su Yanyi was used to making decisions by herself. When had she ever had the habit of reporting to anyone? If it weren’t that she needed special people from Su Yanmo, probably, he too would’ve been in the dark about this matter. However, about this habit of hers, Su Yanyi felt a bit guilty now. She didn’t like seeing the man being so worried for her.
“Hm, what exactly happened? Can you tell me?” Knowing that Yanyi was fine, Qin Jiran had keen thoughts. No one would attack Yanyi suddenly. Something must’ve happened!
His thoughts turned his face cold, a murderous aura loomed in the air. If he laid his hands on those who wanted to hurt Yanyi, he wouldn’t spare them!
Su Yanyi hesitated. She had her doubts. If she were to tell the truth, would this man, who has been honest and without an attitude, be mad at her?!
Of course, this moment of hesitation was but for a brief moment. In the end, Su Yanyi told him the truth. In between, she talked about how she had people release Wang Zhilin on bail in the name of medical treatment. Then she slowly lured Wang Zhilin to harm her. Qin Jiran knitted his eyebrows tightly. He cast her a deep gaze.
There was a moment where Qin Jiran was just speechless by this whole revelation.
Should he say that Yanyi was just finding more work for herself to do or that she deserved this? Qin Jiran thought about it and decided not to say anything. After all, he lacked the courage.
“Yanyi, must you make this matter so complicated?” Qin Jiran pondered over and in the end, put forth his thoughts tactfully. He had a very complicated expression.
Seeing his expression, Su Yanyi laughed out loud. When she had finally laughed enough, she asked, “Why? Do you think I was wrong in doing that?”
Qin Jiran hesitated, then said, “This isn’t an issue of whether you’re right or not. You have your own reasons to whatever you want to do. But you need to think of your safety too. If things had gone wrong today and you were injured in the process, what should I do?”
Although Qin Jiran spoke in a stern tone, she could still feel that he was restraining himself. He knew that Yanyi had her own ideas and enough abilities, but he was still worried. What was more important was that — what if Yanyi was hurt?!
“I had my Elder Brother send me some bodyguards.” Su Yanyi reluctantly explained. In reality, she wasn’t really denying Qin Jiran’s words. Things could indeed have gone out of their control, even if she had prepared for all of this.
Qin Jiran slightly sighed in his heart. Sigh. He can’t be comforted by a reason like this, ok!
“What’s your next step in the plan?” He knew that Yanyi understood him, so he didn’t need to say anymore. He understood Yanyi’s personality. If she was willing to change for you, she would directly do so. If she wasn’t, no matter how much he tried to convince her, it would be of no use.
“Naturally waiting for the police to arrest her. I’m not sure how it feels to be captured a second time by the police.” As she spoke of her next plan, she was quite excited. She had even designed a few escape routes for Wang Zhilin!
“Since you want her to be arrested, why did you find someone to save her?” Qin Jiran didn’t understand this part.
Su Yanyi looked gloomily at Qin Jiran. There was a coldness that intimidated people. Qin Jiran was no exception, he trembled as well. Then she slowly said, “This is a type of torture. I want her to feel hopeless after seeing hope, then slowly losing everything she has. From physical to psychologically. I don’t really want her to go to jail. There are a lot of other plans for her to experience.”
Su Yanyi didn’t mind being so extreme in front of Qin Jiran. Even more so, she was a bit sneaky and cruel. Perhaps, this belonged to the woman’s confident side. She didn’t mind exposing her complete self in front of the man she liked and loved.
Qin Jiran was a bit uneasy, not because of how cruel Su Yanyi was. More so, it had to do with what Wang Zhilin had done that made Yanyi so cruel and sinister towards her. His instincts told him that there must be something he didn’t know. In between, she had most likely harmed Yanyi in some way. Otherwise, based on his knowledge of Yanyi, she would never spend so much time on Wang Zhilin.
“Yanyi, don’t spend so much time on her. She’s not worth it.” Qin Jiran softly hugged Su Yanyi, comforting her.
Just like how Qin Jiran knew Su Yanyi, she also knew how much this man loved her. He had devoted himself to making her his priority. She naturally wouldn’t misunderstand him for pleading for Wang Zhilin. Plus, she could tell from his tone that he was just worried and felt bad.
Did he feel bad for her? This man didn’t even know what she had experienced, yet he felt so. If he found out, he would be in deep sorrow.
“I’m fine.” She who was being comforted ended up comforting him. Su Yanyi always thought that she was strong and persistent and didn’t need any comforting. Yet, she didn’t dislike how the man cared for her. She felt warm in her heart and a lot of hatred washed away.
“What do you need me to do? Or, is there anything you want me to do?” In the past, he didn’t want to intervene in Su Yanyi’s matters because he respected and trusted her. In his eyes, Yanyi was someone who could solve the problems through overbearing ways no matter what issues she faced. But he was really worried now, not because she couldn’t solve the issue, but that she might put her safety at risk because of how extreme she was feeling right now.
He had to say that Su Yanyi’s emotions weren’t normal right now. This was clearly due to Wang Zhilin!
Thinking of Wang Zhilin, Qin Jiran’s gaze turned icy. If Yanyi was willing to let him be in charge, he wouldn’t be polite anymore. Dirtying his hands were better than dirtying Yanyi’s!
Seeing his expression, Su Yanyi softly smiled. The cold aura around her dissipated. “No worries. It’s just a game. How do you have time to play it when you’re so busy?”
Qin Jiran felt helpless. He really wanted to ask her to not play this life-threatening game!
“There was an assassination attempt on Resplendent Company’s President Su Yanyi. The perpetrator has been arrested at the scene. After transferring through the public security bureau, he will be immediately interrogated. Regarding the result, it is still under investigation…”
This was the news that night. Many had seen it, but they all had different reactions.
Right now, Qin Jiran and Su Yanyi had finished dinner and were watching the news. When they saw it, Qin Jiran held Su Yanyi’s hand tightly. As he eyed the culprit on TV, a tint of coldness suffused his face.
At this time, Wang Zhilin who had seen the same news sank into fear. She held the phone in her hands tightly, dialing the number over and over. But it was never answered.
Lin Mu, Lin Mu, why aren’t you picking up? Was that assassin the one she’d hired? Does he know about her existence? Will he hand her over? Why is this assassin so stupid?
Wang Zhilin asked question after question but couldn’t find her answers no matter what.
“Zhilin, what are you doing? Why do look unwell? Do I need to call the doctor over?” Lady Wang walked in and saw Wang Zhilin’s pale face and her uneasy look.
“Don’t. Don’t call anyone over!” When she heard this, Wang Zhilin instinctively rejected and glared harshly at Lady Wang, as if she were her enemy.
“Zhilin, what’s the matter? You, you…” Lady Wang couldn’t explain what was wrong with her but she felt like there was some issue with Wang Zhilin.
“Lin Mu. Go find Lin Mu for me. Oh, and Wei Tao. Find him too. Quickly!” Wang Zhilin was like a victim who had fallen in the sea. Lin Mu and Wei Tao were the two men that could save her. She wanted to hold onto them tightly and never let go.
Lady Wang was in a difficult situation. She said awkwardly, “Why would I have their contacts? Don’t you have their phone numbers? If you want to find them, give them a call.”
If it was in the past, Lady Wang would never allow Wang Zhilin to have two boyfriends at once. But the present was different from the past now. These two men were their support. She had reluctantly accepted them. Even though she had, she wasn’t that enthusiastic about them. Therefore, she clearly didn’t have their contacts and whatnot.
“Oh, right. I can contact them. I will do it right now.” First, Wang Zhilin dialed Lin Mu’s phone but no one picked up still. Wang Zhilin was becoming more anxious. Even her hands trembled as she held her phone. Then she called Wei Tao. This time, she sighed. He quickly picked up.
