Even if you’ve abandoned your moral backbone, at least save yourself a little face.”

Yin Zejing came to a halt.
He patiently listened to the end of Ming Qin’s spiel, and only said, “Qin ge, don’t let him mark you.”

In that split second, Ming Qin looked visibly stumped.

After that, Yin Zejing turned and proceeded to leave.

The many people around them were all staring and whispering among themselves.

Xia Wennan thought that a public commotion like this would also do a number on Ming Qin’s reputation.
It was a bit like dealing damage to your enemy yet coming out of it wounded yourself.
However, since this circle was so large, this matter between Yin Zejing and Ming Qin would quickly spread, and what would He Yufeng do when it came time for him to introduce everyone to his little brother, who had recently returned to the country? Xia Wennan felt embarrassed for them just thinking about it.

What on earth was Yin Zejing thinking? Was it worth it, selling off his body for a few company secrets?

Xia Wennan took a moment to think before deciding that it was necessary to question Yin Zejing and get to the bottom of things.
He hurriedly withdrew from the crowd in order to catch up to Yin Zejing outside.

Ming Luchuan held Xia Wennan back by the hand.
“Are you going to go find Yin Zejing?”

“Mm.” Xia Wennan nodded.

“I’ll come with you,” said Ming Luchuan.

“I better go alone,” said Xia Wennan.
“There may be some things that he’ll only be willing to say to me.” He gave Ming Luchuan an earnest gaze.

Alphas had an inherent mutual aversion towards one another.
Since the beginning, the two men had scarcely any contact, and now that Ming Qin had severed their relationship, it was only their business rivalry that remained.
Yin Zejing would undoubtedly stay tight-lipped around Ming Luchuan.

Betas, on the other hand, were harmless, especially in the eyes of an alpha.
They still had to be on guard against an omega’s heat, whose pheromones could make them lose their minds, but betas wouldn’t; their disposition was weaker than alphas, they could control themselves, and their lack of pheromones didn’t pose a threat, so it was safe to be near them.

Ming Luchuan nodded, understanding Xia Wennan’s thoughts.

Xia Wennan rushed out of the Duan residence.
The moment he set foot outside the gate, he saw that Yin Zejing hadn’t gone very far, but was smoking under a lamppost.

The air was freezing.
The party venue was equipped with heat-lamps, but as soon as he left the house, there was nothing but the biting-cold wind.
Xia Wennan slightly regretted not layering up with a thick jacket.
Yin Zejing was dressed just as thinly; his collar was even unbuttoned.

Yin Zejing looked up at Xia Wennan and said, “It’s hard to hail a taxi in these parts.
Could you get the car out and give me a ride?”

The Duan family lived on the outskirts of the city.
Surrounded by hills, it was secluded and rarely frequented, the neighbourhood full of single-family villas.

Xia Wennan looked over his shoulder.
Seeing that no one else had come out, he approached Yin Zejing while saying, “Your brother isn’t sending you off?”

Yin Zejing turned to face him.
His face was devoid of any sign of shock.
“Turns out you all really knew,” he stated simply.
He tilted his head and took a drag of his cigarette, as if in deep thought.“Did Qin ge suspect me because of Mo Ze’s pheromone perfumes?”

“No,” said Xia Wennan.
“It’s because I regained my memories.”

“You got your memories back?” This time, a trace of genuine shock crossed Yin Zejing’s features.

Xia Wennan scoffed.
Step by step, he closed in on Yin Zejing.
“Yin Zejing, you found out that I discovered your true identity, didn’t you? You were scared I would inform Ming Qin, so the night we had dinner at the Ming house, you mixed a large dose of sleeping pills into the orange juice because you knew that I had to drive and couldn’t drink.
And yet you never expected me to survive and lose my memories instead, so you believed you could rest easy? Did you really never think that there’d be a day when I would regain my memories?”

Yin Zejing’s brows slightly furrowed.
