Chapter 13: My Heart Beats For You (IV)
Ever since the day Jian Chenfeng had left Jiang Yumo’s apartment, he felt that there was something wrong with his entire person. He always unconsciously paid attention to him, from the first unpleasantness, no matter how he looked at him he found him pleasant now. As for the injuries on Jiang Yumo’s body, although he did not manage to get the answer out of him, he had someone investigate it and found out that he had actually became a member of the extreme sport club. Every weekend he would go participate in the exercises.
Jian Chenfeng had long heard he liked to play, but he didn’t expect it would be this kind of playing. Furthermore, as long as it was an event set up by the club, he had pretty much signed up for all of them. No wonder his body was full of injuries, every kind of sport has a degree of danger. If someone has great courage and loves to take risks, under the condition where they are not experienced enough, getting injured is a common matter.
Jian Chenfeng was very angry and he didn’t know where this anger came from, he only felt that this guy was playing too far and completely did not care about his safety. Liking sports is a good thing, but to purposely look for a thrill is one another thing.
He had just received news that Jiang Yumo was currently at the beach playing jet ski, Jian Chenfeng decided to personally go take a look.
On the beach, the sun shone brightly and the sea breeze blew slowly. All over the place were men and women in swimsuits. Jian Chenfeng, in his shirt, pants and leather shoes while traveling back in forth was especially eye catching.
Jian Chenfeng frowned, he didn’t like this kind of noisy environment, the noise would cause a person’s attention to lax, their alertness to reduce and promote adrenaline.
“Where is he?” Jian Chenfeng coldly looked at Secretary Cui next to him and asked.
“He should be at…” He didn’t get the chance to finish his sentence when a burst of excited screams interrupted him.
Jian Chenfeng followed where the screams came from only to see a group a women and men standing next to the sea, screaming and shouting at some place farther.
Jian Chenfeng raised his binoculars to take a look. Over there was a couple of people playing jet skis and kayak. He looked at each person until he found the one he was looking for.
Jiang Yumo was standing on a jet ski, his upper body slightly tilted like a swordfish braving the wind and billows. He did a maneuver and leaped, setting off a great white ocean spray. At this moment, in a sudden spurt, the jet ski rose highly into the sky causing Jiang Yumo’s body to hang in the air like he was soaring. Between the ocean and sky, his gorgeous body shone.
“Ahhh!” Countless screams sounded.
Jian Chenfeng’s heart tightened, his burning hot gaze firmly locked onto that soaring figure as he almost forgot to breathe.
A dozen minutes later, Shang Ke who had played to his heart’s content returned to the beach and gave his cheering companions a brilliant smile. Drops of water fell from his hair and was like his smile, just as dazzling under the sun.
Jian Chenfeng suddenly felt his mouth go dry, something called “desire” surged up violently and pulled him into the taboo abyss…
While Shang Ke wiped his hair, he walked up the beach. His original intention to participate in extreme sports was to court death, but after he had genuine experienced it for himself, he found the pleasure in them. He was not afraid of death and had the courage to try, so his skill of every sport quickly grew. Although he could not be compared to experts, simple performances were still possible.
However, he didn’t know if it was his talent was too high or his body’s basic data was different, although he gained a lot of small injuries while playing so many types of extreme sports, he was never seriously injured even once.
“Jiang Yumo.” While in his daydreaming, Shang Ke suddenly heard a familiar voice.
He pulled off the towel on his head, and saw Jian Chenfeng walking toward him.
“Jian Chenfeng, how are you here?” Shang Ke asked in surprise.
“I was passing by and saw you playing in the water.”
The familiar type of reply made Shang Ke roll his eyes.
“When are you done, we can go eat together?” Jian Chenfeng asked him again.
“I’ll go tell them first, wait for a minute.”
Shang Ke took a shower, changed his clothes then took a ride in Jian Chenfeng’s car to a restaurant.
On the way there, Jian Chenfeng said nothing and was fully concentrated ahead, like he was thinking about something really serious.
After Secretary Cui drove the three of them to the restaurant, he excused himself by saying he had other matters to attend to and left first.
Jian Chenfeng and Shang Ke chose a window seat and seated themselves. Then they ordered and started to make idle chat.
Shang Ke had no choice but to admit that Jian Chenfeng was a very attractive man. Every action would be pleasing to the eyes. The two of them could be considered friends now, their usual interacts could be considered pleasant.
The reason why Jian Chenfeng changed his attitude toward him was because of his cooking skills. While the reason why Shang Ke changed his attitude toward him was because he had found a mole on his palm not too long ago. It was the same one as Ravel’s.
Shang Ke was suspicious that Jian Chenfeng was Ravel, it was just that in different worlds, they have different personalities and memories. After he was finished with his missions in this world, he was going to ask the System to clear it up.
“Sorry, I’ll go to the bathroom first.” Shang Ke wiped his mouth and got up, leaving the dining table.
Jian Chenfeng watched his leaving figure, an elusive light going through his eyes..
When Shang Ke finished his personal business and left the bathroom, he caught sight of a familiar person. The other turned her body and saw him, her face turning into shock, “Jiang Yumo, you…”
“Jian Xin, such a coincidence to see you here.” Shang Ke gave her a wide smile.
Jian Xin took a step back, asking in a trembling voice, “You stalked me?”
Shang Ke was left speechless, he did not know how she suddenly thought he was stalking her.
Jian Xin continued, “Jiang Yumo, I long told you I don’t like you. You hang around at my older brother’s company, send me flowers everyday and now you even stalk me?”
Shang Ke’s face fell, should he try his best to explain to her right now, or remain silent and show a hurt expression?
“Jiang Yumo, stop interfering with my life!” The more she spoke, the more emotional she became, “Do you know that every time you appear, I would feel unwell?”
Shang Ke secretly reviewed himself, did he do something that could cause such anger to her?
“Let me go, I can’t take it.” Jian Xin held her chest, her breathing because hard and her complexion turned very ugly.
“Jian Xin, are you okay?” Shang Ke hurriedly tried to help her.
Jian Xin did not appreciate his kindness and pushed him away. Her foot staggered and she almost fell, but Shang Ke once again helped her and asked, “Where’s your medicine? Did you bring it?”
“No, I don’t need you to care! Go away, immediately scram from my sight!” Jian Xin’s expression was painful that even what she was saying was turning weak.
Shang Ke was just about to find someone to help when he heard a shout of rage behind him, “Jiang Yumo, what are you doing?”
Shang Ke haven’t even had the moment to turn around when his arm was grabbed and then pulled, the back of his head heavily knocked against the wall.
The person who pulled him wasn’t Jian Chenfeng, but his own older brother, Jiang Donglin.
No wonder Jian Xin wanted him to leave so badly, she was probably worried that he would destroy her date with Jiang Donglin.
Shang Ke held the back of his head as he fuzzily thought that.
At this moment, an arm held his waist, and asked, “Are you okay?”
Shang Ke raised his head to look at the man by his side, his eyes a bit misty.
“Jian Chenfeng? Don’t worry about me, go check on Jian Xin.”
“She’s fine.” Jian Chenfeng looked toward the two. Jian Xin was currently leaning against Jiang Donglin’s chest, tears at the corner of her eyes. Her condition was already steady.
Jiang Donglin helped Jian Xin up and said to Shang Ke, “Jiang Yumo, you know that Jian Xin’s body isn’t good, why did you still upset her?”
“I…” I your mom, how did I upset her? She was the one being paranoid okay? Shang Ke remained silent, he didn’t need to pretend this time, his eyes were full of sadness.
“Dongling, before things have been cleared, don’t jump to conclusions.” Compared to Jiang Donglin, as the older brother of Jian Xin, Jian Chenfeng was the calm one. He believed in the Jiang Yumo he knows, he was not that kind of frivolous and impulsive man.
He looked at Jian Xin and asked, “Xin’er, what happened just now?”
Jian Xin’s face was pale, looked from her brother then back to Shang Ke. She guessed that she had probably misunderstood Shang Ke. She lowered her head, bit her lips and didn’t speak.
A trace of distress flit through Jiang Donglin’s eyes and he turned to say to Shang Ke, “Jiang Yumo, give Miss Jian an apology.”
Shang Ke deeply looked at them, then sneered, “Just why should I? I didn’t do anything wrong.”
“Jiang Yumo, I will say it again, give Miss Jian an apology.” Jiang Donglin’s tone became more severe.
“No, no need.” Jian Xin said beside him.
Shang Ke stared at Jiang Donglin, and said everything very clearly, “In this lifetime, I will never let her get my apology.”
After he said that, Shang Ke shook off Jian Chenfeng’s hand and walked for the entrance.
“Jiang Yumo, hold it!” Jiang Donglin was just about to run up and grab Shang Ke but was stopped by Jian Chenfeng. Just when he was going to speak, they suddenly heard a “band” sound followed by Jian Xin’s scream.
Jian Chenfeng and Jiang Donglin turned their heads at the same time to find Jiang Yumo lying on the ground, unconscious…
“What happened?” While Xu Qing checked Shang Ke’s situation, he asked.
I also don’t know, he suddenly fainted.” Jiang Donglin was also confused.
“Did anything happen before he fainted?” Xu Qing continued to ask, “For example, dizziness, stiffness in the limbs, or a collision?”
“Collision?” Jiang Donglin stared blankly then replied, “I remember that I had pulled him and then he had knocked against the wall.”
Xu Qing’s gaze turned sharp. “Which part was hit?”
“This…” Jiang Donglin pursed his brows, he had only paid attention to Jian Xin and did not notice.
“The back of his head.” Jian Chenfeng answered for him.
Xu Qing fixed his eyes on him, “You’re sure?”
Jian Chenfeng nodded, his eyes dimmed, he started to feel something was wrong.
Xu Qing cursed a soft “Damn it” then immediately had a nurse send him to the brain specialist. He was a surgeon, he wasn’t in charged of this.
“Xu Qing, what’s wrong with Yumo?” Jiang Donglin look at him, confused, so he asked, “Why do you look so anxious?” He was certain that Yumo’s hit wasn’t heavy, no matter how serious it was, it could only be a concussion right?
Xu Qing pushed up his glasses and returned back to being calm. He coldly and indifferently said, “I am no anxious. If you, his older brother isn’t anxious, why should I be anxious?”
“You’re implying something?” Jiang Donglin looked at him.
Xu Qing’s lips rose into a cold smile, “It looks like that kid didn’t tell you guy his condition after all.”
Xu Qing turned to look at Jiang Donglin, his tone very calm as he gave the news, “He is suffering from a brain tumor.”
Jiang Donglin and Jian Chenfeng’s face both changed at the same time.
Xu Qing felt that it was not stimulating enough and added, “You two best pray that a serious problem doesn’t come out from his head being hit. Otherwise, even the world’s top brain specialist wouldn’t be able to save him.”
