didn’t expect him to be so audacious.”

“If I’m not mistaken,” Lu Jing Shen continued, “when news of my kidnapping and disappearance reaches the country, he will quickly arrange for a board meeting to elect new directors.
Dad’s health is not good, and they might try to push you into the chairman position to control the company through you.”

Lu Jing Qing coldly smiled, “they will never succeed.
A-Shen, I’ve said before that we are family.
No matter how close I was with Li Wenzhong before, I would never agree to let him harm you like this.
Don’t you trust me?”

“I haven’t told anyone else about this, except for you,” Lu Jing Shen said calmly.
“I plan to stay abroad for a while longer.
I can only pass these matters to you.”

Lu Jing Qing understood, “Are you planning to turn the tables and confront them during the board meeting?”

Lu Jing Shen didn’t deny it.

Lu Jing Qing readily agreed, “Alright, I know what to do.
Be careful over there.
Don’t go out casually, even if you have bodyguards.
Leave the company matters to me,I’ll handle it.”

Lu Jing Shen also reminded her to take care of herself and hung up the phone.

Feng Si approached, took Lu Jing Shen’s phone, opened WeChat, and sent a “thank you” message to Lu Jing Qing.

“Requesting someone’s help should be polite.
‘Thank you’ is the bare minimum,” he lectured Lu Jing Shen.

Lu Jing Shen frowned, and Feng Si handed the phone back to him.
“You didn’t hesitate to tell your sister everything.
Do you really trust her that much?”

“Do you not trust Feng Ting?” Lu Jing Shen asked in return.

Feng Si laughed, “I really don’t trust that little brat.
As long as she doesn’t cause me trouble, that’s good enough.
How could I trust her?”

Lu Jing Shen ignored his playful words and explained, “My father’s health is not good, my mother and brother don’t handle company matters, so we can only trust each other.”

That was perhaps the first time Lu Jing Shen willingly talked to Feng Si about his family, even though it was only a few brief sentences.

Feng Si asked, “Your family seems to have a good relationship.
Can I meet them?”

Lu Jing Shen’s expression stiffened, and he avoided eye contact, saying, “…let’s talk about it later.”

Feng Si popped a mint candy into his mouth, chewed it slowly, and looked at him intently.

Lu Jing Shen felt somewhat uneasy under his gaze but remained tight-lipped.

After a brief silence, Feng Si changed the topic, “Did your vacation get extended? Isn’t that a blessing in disguise? What are your plans next? Do you want to travel somewhere else? How about the UK? Come to my place.”


Feng Si’s tone made it sound like a casual suggestion.

Lu Jing Shen lightly pursed his lips.

“Forget it, your sister is worried about you going out casually.
Just stay here..at least it’s safe,” Feng Si said, standing up to continue dealing with the record player.

Lu Jing Shen was taken aback for a moment, but he followed him.
Feng Si dismantled the parts and sat on the floor, slowly cleaning the gears.

Lu Jing Shen hesitated and squatted beside him, but Feng Si glanced at him, and he didn’t move.

Lu Jing Shen asked, “What are you doing?”

“Shouldn’t I be asking you what you’re doing?” Feng Si sighed helplessly and with amusement.
“Lu Jing Shen, you’re blocking the light.”

Lu Jing Shen felt a bit embarrassed and shifted to the side.

He looked like someone who had done something wrong, wanting to please someone intentionally but awkwardly unable to do it right.

Feng Si said, “Don’t move; the more you move, the less I feel like doing it.
Come over here and stay still.”

Lu Jing Shen felt slightly relieved and moved to his other side.
“Do you want me to help?”

“You weren’t planning to help before?” Feng Si teased him.
“What can you do anyway? Can you tell what is what?”

Lu Jing Shen looked slightly embarrassed, and Feng Si raised his chin towards him, “Go get me a bottle of water.”

Lu Jing Shen said, “Okay,” and stood up.

He returned five minutes later, holding a bottle of mineral water, and handed it to Feng Si.

Seeing that Lu Jing Shen was so easy-going, Feng Si playfully toyed with him, “I’m feeling a little hungry now.
Can you get me a sandwich?”

Lu Jing Shen gave him a look, turned around, and went downstairs.

The third time, Feng Si said he needed tissues, and Lu Jing Shen still went to get them.

“Is there anything else you need?” Lu Jing Shen had probably figured out that Feng Si was playing with him, but he still had a good temper as that was the only way he could help.

Feng Si saw that Lu Jing Shen was being so agreeable and stretched out his hand to pull him down.
“No need; aren’t you tired running around? Just stay here.”


Lu Jing Shen didn’t say anything more and squatted beside him, picking up a poetry collection nearby.

He flipped through a few pages and put it back down.

That kind of thing didn’t interest him much, and he didn’t think Feng Si would like it either.

Lu Jing Shen’s gaze returned to the person beside him, quietly watching him work.

Half an hour later, after putting back the last piece, Feng Si clapped his hands.
“It should be fixed now.
Want to try it?”

Lu Jing Shen nodded.

Feng Si moved the record player to the table, placed one of the vinyl records they bought on it, and gently turned the handle.

The fine quality voice of the song came through, flowing slowly with the frequency of the rotating vinyl.

“Return to me.

For my heart wants you only.”

Lu Jing Shen listened quietly for a moment, feeling slightly lost.

Feng Si’s breath approached from behind, and his warm and moist breath fell on Lu Jing Shen’s ear, humming softly along with the song.

“Return to me

For my heart wants you only.”

Lu Jing Shen felt a slight itchiness, as Feng Si’s voice lightly struck his eardrums, making his heart tremble.

“Return to me.”

Lu Jing Shen turned around and hugged Feng Si’s neck, drawing closer to him.

he hugged him tightly.

sealing away more words that he couldn’t bear to express.
