Chapter 10: My Heart Beats For You (I)
Shang Ke’s identity this time was Jiang Yumo, the son of Jiang Clan Corp’s Chairman, Jiang Song. A frivolous, ignorant and incompetent person. Until later on, he met Xin Chen Corp’s daughter, Jian Xin. He fell in love with her at first sight and thus, began his crazy pursue of her.
Jian Xin had a heart disease, while her brother Jian Chenfeng was determined in not allowing Jiang Yumo and her have any relation. Furthermore, the one Jian Xin liked was Jiang Yumo’s older brother, Jiang Donglin. In jealousy and hate, Jiang Yumo started to target Jiang Donglin everywhere, wholeheartedly fighting against him for the inheritance right of Jiang Clan Corp, causing great pandemonium in the Jiang Family.
However, two years later, a brain tumor was found in Jiang Yumo during an examination. It was already at a late stage, so there wasn’t even a twenty percent chance of success for the operation. This news was like a bolt from the blue, causing Jiang Yumo to fall into depression for a long time. Watching how his own brother and beloved woman were getting together, indignity filled his heart. In a moment of impulsiveness, he drove a car with Jian Xin and rushed down the overpass. In the end, both met violent deaths.
When Jian Chenfeng found out his younger sister was killed by Jiang Yumo, he started to retaliate against Jiang Family. Several years later, Jiang Clan would declare bankruptcy and never recover from the collapse.
Jian Chenfeng was this world’s main character.
Shang Ke’s main mission is–preserve(save) Jiang Family.
Though the mission looked simple, there is an unchanging prerequisite with it, and that is to use a “heroic” death as the price.
When Shang Ke transmigrated, Jiang Yumo had just started to pursue Jian Xin and did not know he had contracted a brain tumor.
Of course, all of that wasn’t the important part. The important part was the environment he was in at this time–Jian Xin’s birthday banquet. And he was currently trapping today’s birthday girl against a corner, preparing to make a rascal out of himself.
The Jian Xin before him had a head full of black hair, fair skin and delicate temperament. She gave people the feeling of a small white rabbit. Holding onto the corner of her skirt, she used a nervous and helpless gaze to look at Shang Ke.
Shang Ke went silent for a moment, then slowly took away his hands that were against the wall and said with a sincere expression, “Sorry, I scared you. I was just playing a joke on you.”
But Jian Xin did not look like she was going to relax anytime soon.
Shang Ke took out a small gift box from his pocket and placed it in her palm, then turned around, “Let’s go, the other people are all waiting in the lounge for you. I’ll send you down.”
Jian Xin looked down at the gift box, then at Shang Ke’s back figure, hestinating for a moment before deciding to catch up.
Strange, why did today’s Jiang Yumo feel a little different?
Shang Ke was not very interested in the banquet, but he paid close attention to his own big brother and Jian Xin’s big brother.
Jiang Donglin was around 182 cm tall, with a refined temperament and elegant appearance. His pair of light brown eyes always carried a bit of a smile. Those who were watched by him would always have a feeling of being bathe in spring wind.
Jian Chenfeng and him were two completely different styles. Within his strictness was a bit of wildness, his gaze was like the point of a spear and his aura overflowing. Visually, he estimated him to be almost 190 cm tall and well-built. At the banquet, he was like a crane in a flock of chicken.
Shang Ke’s gaze lingered on Jian Chenfeng for a while longer, he kept feeling he looked a bit familiar.
The other reacted very keenly, he accurately caught Shang Ke’s reckoning gaze and turned his head to look at him. After he saw it was Shang Ke, he turned back, like he had just swept his gaze past air.
Shang Ke also did not care, he had just started to “pursue” Jian Xin, and hasn’t done anything that would make Jian Chenfeng particularly hate him. Their current relationship was neither salty or bland.
Shang Ke did not rush himself to go swipe Lord “Main Character’s” favorable impression. He only stayed in the banquet for a bit over ten minutes before leaving. Before he left, he also did not forget to send his older brother a short text.
Jiang Donglin was rather amazed when he received the text. Didn’t Yumo quite like Miss Jian? He was originally worried that Yumo would do something impolite to Miss jian. But he didn’t expect that before the banquet was over, he already left. Perhaps he has a new target now?
At this moment, Jian Chenfeng walked over with his younger sister. Jiang Donglin also temporarily laid down the confusion in his heart and greeted them with a smile.
At night, when he got back, Jiang Donglin asked the housekeeper, “Did Yumo return?”
“Little Young Master returned two hours ago, he’s already asleep now.” The housekeeper took Jiang Donglin’s coat and replied.
He’s already asleep? Is he alright?
Jiang Donglin shook his head, he didn’t think too much about it. Jiang Yumo had always done things at his own pace, even their father couldn’t control him, let alone him.
The next day, the first thing Shang Ke did when he woke up was to go to the hospital for an examination.
The original owner only found out he had contracted brain tumor two years later, by then, it was already too late to treat it.
This clearly could become an advantage for him to complete this second world’s mission, at least it guaranteed he wouldn’t commit suicide or die of old day.
“Why did you suddenly want to come to do
?” Xu Qing asked as he looked at Shang Ke who was sitting next to the bed.
Xu Qing was this family’s doctor, and one of Jiang Yumo’s few friends.
“I have been feeling a headache a lot lately.” Shang Ke smiled at him, “So while I came to see you, I’ll get myself examined at the same time.”
Shang Ke leaned against the window sill, letting the sunlight shine on him. With his wide smile, his entire person appeared very lazy. Jiang Yumo’s appearance was very attractive, it’s just that his normally arrogant and despotic ways tainted his natural temperament. But the current him felt like he had been purified and gave people a completely new feeling.
Xu Qing pushed his glasses then seamlessly moved away his line of sight.
The two casually chatted and soon after, the CT results came out.
Xu Qing wasn’t really a brain specialist doctor, but after he took a look at the CT results, his face changed.
The doctor told him, “The position of this brain tumor is really rare, but fortunately its been found in time so the chance of recovery is very high.”
“I’ll immediately get a brain specialist doctor.” Xu Qing patted Shang Ke’s shoulder, “Don’t worry, it’s not a big problem.”
He wasn’t worried at all. Compared to the first world, dying from a brain tumor was a blessed way to die.
Shang Ke asked the brain specialist that was brought over, “What kind of symptoms would show up? What do I need to pay attention to?”
“Your tumor is pretty stable right now. But after a period of time, you might have a headache, nausea, vomiting, your limbs going numb, vision declining, mood going out of control and symptoms like that. Before the operation, you must be very carefully. You can’t let your head suffer a hit, otherwise, you might immediately die.” The doctor repeatedly warned him, “I suggest you stay in the hospital for examination for now, until the operation is over.”
“What would happen if I don’t do the operation?”
“Then…one or two years later, your tumor would gradually worsen and gravely influence your lifestyle. Furthermore, your life may be in danger at any moment. No matter how careful you are, you likely won’t live past three years. Although there is some danger in the operation, with your current situation, the success rate is still really high.”
After the brain specialist doctor left, Xu Qing said to him, “I think you should quickly tell this matter to your family.”
“No.” Shang ke raised his head to look at Xu Qing, seriously telling him, “I want you to keep this a secret for me.”
“If they knew, they would definitely arrange an operation for me immediately.”
“Isn’t that as expected?”
“Anyway, just help me keep it a secret.” If he made it public now, how was he supposed to die artistically?
“How long are you planning to keep it a secret?” Xu Qing stared closely at him, his reaction was a lot calmer than he had expected. Perhaps he had long knew about his state?
“I’ll tell you when it’s time.” Shang Ke stood up and slowly walked to the entrance. When he walked there, he turned his head back around again, “Remember to keep it a secret for me. If you tell other people, I won’t do the operation.”
Xu Qing narrowed his eyes, just what was this guy planning? He was not someone who could stay calm in such a situation. He had just found out he had contracted brain tumor, how could he be so calm? He wasn’t thinking of doing something crazy right?
Xu Qing picked up his phone, preparing to notify Jiang Donglin but hesitated and placed it back down. He wanted to see just what was Jiang Yumo going to do.
A flash of interest flashed through his eyes.
After Shang Ke left this hospital, he went to another one.
Minchen Hospital, this was the private hospital under Jian Family. Shang Ke came here to try a match.
Jian Xin had a heart disease, she has always been looking for a suitable heart. After Shang Ke had finishing going through the information of this world, he had made the decision to donate his heart to Jian Xin. This was currently the best way to die he could think of. Aftering finding himself contracted with brain tumor, for his “beloved woman”, he renounced treatment and sacrificed himself so that she could happily survive.
It was touching just thinking about it!
Shang Ke praised himself for his own resourcefulness.
However, he had to check if his heart matched her type. If it didn’t, then he could only think of some other way.
After Shang Ke returned back home, it was already evening. Besides the servants, no one else had returned.
Shang Ke adapted to his environment quickly. He ate his food, took a walk, took a bath then headed to bed to sleep.
The past world was too miserable, so he wanted to relax well in this world. Before the results of the matching comes out, his mission was to eat, drink and play around.
The next day, Shang Ke saw Jiang Yumo’s father and older brother. The family ate a quiet breakfast. Although Jiang Yumo’s nature wasn’t too good, his relationship with his parents were still pretty good.
Afterwards, Father Jiang said, “Yumo, you have graduated for two years already, idling your time away won’t give you any benefits. So next month, you’ll intern at the company.”
He had just made his goal to eat, sleep and play around yesterday night, but today, he was told to go work from nine to five?
Shang Ke quickly said, “I can find a job myself, dad doesn’t need to worry.”
“Really?” Father Jiang gave him a fleeting glance and said, “I had originally planned to send you to Jian Family’s company for internship. But since you want to find one yourself, then I won’t bother.”
Jian Family’s company? The main character’s headquarters? The holy land to swipe a favorable impression!
His mission was to preserve Jiang Family. If his heart didn’t match, then having a good relationship with the main character would be very necessary.
As a result, Shang Ke incomparably seriously said, “Dad, I think I do need to go out and experience more. You have to send me to Jian Family’s company for internship.”
Father Jiang gravely laid down a question, “Then can you guarantee you will work hard and not lose face for me?”
“I guarantee on this cup of milk!” Shang Ke solemnly drank down the milk. Jiang Yumo and him were the same, they both especially hated to drink milk. So this guarantee was especially strong.
Father Jiang expressed that he was very satisfied.
Jiang Donglin looked at his own younger brother and felt his father’s decision was a bit careless. Jiang Yumo’s nature was too volatile, sending him to Jian Chenfeng’s company, it wouldn’t drag them trouble would it?
Jian Chenfeng was not easy to interact with. If Yumo offended him, he probably wouldn’t even know how he died. Moreover, he was still thinking about pursuing the other’s younger sister…
Jiang Donglin felt that he should start thinking early about how to deal with the funeral arrangements.
