Chapter 56 – Fu Zhihuan vs Xu Zeming

As Wen Ruan watched the group of arrogant people being taken away by the police, she touched her chin and suddenly came to a realization…….

It turned out that if you have money, a lot of things can be solved very quickly!

“Wen Ruan.”

Fu Zhihuan who was standing a meter away from her stepped closer and said softly.

“Ill send you home.”

The next instant, a replyokay nearly slipped out from her lips but just before she said the word aloud, Wen Ruan quickly stopped.

That was dangerous…….

She was almost deceived by the man!

Although he did her a favor just now, the two matters cant be mixed and the previous matter cant be ignored! 

Wen Ruan raised her head and glanced at Fu Zhihuan who was standing not far away.  She pursed her lower lip and turned around without a word.  As she walked a few steps forward, she said coldly.

“Thank you, Second Young Master Fu but its not necessary, I can go back by myself.”

After speaking, she made a move to leave.

At this moment, the sounds of running footsteps suddenly sounded from afar.

It was Xu Zeming who had just been taken away by the police for questioning.

His hair was wet and his chest was heaving slightly as he had been running.

When he saw Wen Ruan was about to leave, he quickly reached out his hand to grab her wrist.

“Wait a minute……”

Wen Ruan was stunned.  She turned around to glance at Xu Zeming and wanted to pull her hand away.

Originally, Fu Zhihuan was leaning against the wall but when he saw this scene, he narrowed his eyes, straightened up, and shouted.


Wen Ruan and Xu Zeming turned their heads around in unison.

Fu Zhihuan raised his chin towards Xu Zemings hand and his eyes darkened.  His voice was very low and there was some imperceptible irritation in his tone.

“Let go.”

But Xu Zeming did not move.

Although he looked like he was only in his early twenties, it was obvious he was extremely stubborn.  Upon hearing this, he only pursed his lips tightly.  Although he was slightly shorter than Fu Zhihuan, he still stiffened his neck and stared back without fear.

The tense atmosphere seemed to turn cold in an instant.

Fu Zhihuan laughed softly, moved a step forward, and repeated his words.

“Kid, let go of your hand.”

But at this moment, Wen Ruan reacted and interrupted.

“F**k off!”

She held down Xu Zemings hand, then raised her chin towards Fu Zhihuan and said in an angry tone.

“Why should he let go  Continue holding!”

Then she turned her head to look at Xu Zeming and said in a commanding voice.

“Hold on!  Dont let go!”

Xu Zeming:  “……”

Fu Zhihuan:  “……”

Wen Ruan was furious.

What a joke!  Why must he let go just because Fu Zhihuan said so!

Is her wrist his private property

Suddenly, the originally tense atmosphere between the two men turned into a battle between Wen Ruan and Fu Zhihuan.

With one hand on her hip, Wen Ruan looked at Fu Zhihuan in front of her and it seemed as if she was going to fight him to the end.

In spite of himself, Fu Zhihuan had to laugh and his gaze fell on Wen Ruan.  Although he felt helpless, he seemed to show some inexplicable doting.


Xu Zeming was silent for a while.  Then he glanced at the two people in front of him and finally broke the tense situation by speaking up.

He raised his eyes and his Adams apple rolled slightly then he faintly spat out a word.


Wen Ruan was stunned.  “Huh”

Xu Zeming said word by word.

“I want to have your name and contact.”

Wen Ruan became silent.

Although many people had asked for her contact since she was a child, this is the first time a boy who is four to five years younger than her made such a request.

And the boy looked so solemn when asking for her contact and was so serious as if he was taking an oath.

She did not like to give her contact to others, so she twitched her lips and refused.

“No, its not…….”

Before she could finish the sentence, out of the corner of her eyes, she caught sight of Fu Zhihuan who was unable to keep still and was showing an unhappy expression.

It seemed like he was very concerned about this.

So Wen Ruan simply pulled out her phone, clicked open the WeChat QR code, and showed it to the boy.

“Wen Ruan……Wen for temperature andRuan is the character which you combine the side character ofear andyuan.  By the way, do you want my QQ, INS and Taobao ID  If you want, I can also give you my Alipay account.  We can chat and do transfers too.”

(Some Chinese words are formed with the combination of a few basic characters.  It is alright if you dont understand what WR is talking about since she is only explaining to XZ how to write her name.)

Fu Zhihuan:  “……”

Xu Zeming nodded and seriously took note of everything.

At this moment, there were sounds of footsteps not far away and then a figure in a police uniform could vaguely be seen a distance away.

“Where did that boy go  Why didnt you all keep an eye on him”

Wen Ruan frowned.  “Did you sneak away”

Xu Zeming did not speak and just lowered his eyes.

After a long while, he said.  “Because I was afraid that if I dont come to you, Ill never see you again.”

Fu Zhihuans eyes darkened even more and he turned around to meet Xu Zemings innocent but unyielding eyes.

It seemed he was being deliberately provocative.

And Wen Ruan froze.

Was she being courted by the little boy just now


The corner of Fu Zhihuans lips twitched then he leaned down, raised his eyes, and locked eyes with Xu Zeming.

He chuckled softly and although there seemed to be laughter in his tone, there was inexplicable coercion.

“I have also helped you, but why didnt you ask me for my contact”

Xu Zeming had a rather calm look.

“Are you her boyfriend”

Fu Zhihuans eyes darkened but he did not speak.

Finally, Xu Zeming understood.

“If youre not then we should compete fairly.”

Fu Zhihuan:  “You wont have a chance.”

Upon hearing this, Wen Ruan was confused.

Xu Zeming looked over at the police then turned around and started to walk away.

“Ill leave first.”

Fu Zhihuan:  “You should leave quickly.”

Xu Zeming did not speak but just after taking a few steps forward, he turned around suddenly and looked at Wen Ruan behind him.


Wen Ruan:  “Huh”

Xu Zeming said very seriously.  “I will come to look for you.”

She was stunned and before she had time to react, she saw the boy in front of her turn around and left.

Then Fu Zhihuan gave her a piece of advice at the side.

“Avoid contact with strangers and in the future, pay attention to your safety while outside.”

Fu Zhihuans words made her feel suffocated.  Originally, she was touched and felt that the boys feelings were sincere.

But now the person next to her poured a bucket of cold water over her.

She gritted her teeth, glared at him fiercely, and turned around to walk in the direction of the exit without a word.

Fu Zhihuans brows moved slightly but he did not speak and just followed quietly behind her.

Footsteps sounded unevenly one after the other.

Initially, Wen Ruan pretended not to hear, bit her lip, and quickened her pace.

It was until the footsteps followed behind her all the way and she finally could not bear it that she turned her head.

“Fu Zhihuan, what do you want  Is there no end to this”

He let out a light soundAh then lowered his eyes as if he was thinking about something.  A long time later, he raised his eyes and although he sounded extremely serious, there was a smile in his tone.

“I thought it was obvious enough.”

“What is obvious”

“I am……….”

His eyebrows twitched and his words sounded condescending.  But speaking up to this point, he deliberately lowered his voice which contained a little teasing.

“……..pursuing you.”

The light airy sentence made all the reprimands that Wen Ruan had prepared in her heart block up.

Her heart tightened.  She pursed her lips, looked at Fu Zhihuan in front of her, and suddenly there was a complex feeling in her heart.

If she had heard this sentence a few days earlier, she would definitely be very, very happy and would do everything to be with him.

But now, Wen Ruan felt her heart tighten with discomfort.

After a long silence, her eyes rested on the man in front of her, and then she said in a cold voice.

“Are you sick”

After saying those words, she suddenly felt a little regretful but the feeling she felt more intense was the pain.

When she was finally ready to give up on this love that was always making her sad, the other party suddenly jumped out to stir up the emotions that she was trying hard to forget and made her start thinking about it again.

This is too much!

Why is this guy always like this

Wen Ruan took a deep breath and turned around to leave.

However, after taking a few steps, just when she felt Fu Zhihuan would definitely not be following her after those harsh words, she suddenly heard the familiar footsteps behind her with incomparable clarity.

The tip of her nose suddenly became sourish and she stopped again.  She closed her eyes, took a deep breath, and when she opened her eyes once more, they had turned slightly red.

She turned her head and raised her voice.  “Fu Lu, what is the meaning of this”

Fu Zhihuan lifted his eyes.  Every strand of his feather-like long eyelashes became distinct under the lights and no emotions could be seen in his long and narrow eyes.

He just stared at her without saying a word and embraced by the warm lights behind him, his expression was as cold as ever but was unreadable.

A long time later, he said.  “I didnt lie.”

Wen Ruan bit her lower lip and tried hard to make her voice sound calm.

“Thats why we have canceled the marriage.”

He lowered his eyes and let out a low laugh but there was no hint of laughter in his voice.  He gave a slight nod and his voice sounded a little desolate.

“Thats right, youve canceled the marriage.”

Wen Ruan subconsciously bent her fingers and clenched her hands into fists.

Fu Zhihuan looked at her very seriously and his voice was husky when he spoke.

“But Im unwilling to accept it.”

Just a few words…….Wen Ruans heart suddenly started to beat like falling raindrops…..pitter-patter.

She lowered her head and even her breathing seemed to tremble.

Her originally well-maintained calmness was suddenly shattered by this sentence and then the sadness started to spread.


She laughed and a tear suddenly slipped down from the corner of her eye.

“Fu Lu, when I got engaged no one asked me whether I was willing.”

“I refused many times and finally persuaded myself to attend the engagement banquet but in the end, you didnt turn up.  Everyone thought that I had shamelessly clung on to this engagement and coerced you to stay with me.”

At that time, you were unwilling but I felt it didnt matter.  After that, I was ready to give up and had a fall out with my family over this issue and even ran away to Jiang City.”

“But that time, you already knew clearly how much I like you and you were also aware of my identity.  Since you dont want to be with me, why did you watch me act like a fool in front of you”

She took a deep breath and although she wanted to control her emotions, her tears could not help but slip down drop by drop.  She reached out to wipe the corners of her eyes and her voice sounded a little choked up.

“Are you sure you like me  Or is it like picking up a small animal just to get some enjoyment for yourself”

As Fu Zhihuan looked at Wen Ruan, his heart seemed to be pierced by thousands of needles and he could feel a throbbing pain inside his whole body.

Subconsciously, he reached out to wipe off the tears from the corners of her eyes.

“Wen Ruan……”

Wen Ruan stepped back and interrupted.

“Dont speak anymore.  What I want is not to hear your words of love or your confession but a lover who can trust me and tell me everything without any reservations.”

“And Fu Zhihuan……..youre not.”
