LNTMG-(178) Extra 8

  Xia Ye didn’t worry at all when he heard them talking much.

  Song Yi stayed with him for a while, after he found that Qin Ke was not a threat, and left with Yin Qing, leaving only the three of them here to talk about computer technology. Manager Song can do everything, but technology is something he is really not good at, so he didn’t talk.

  Qin Ke deliberately showed off, but when he saw Xia Ye, he didn’t dare to be too blatant. He picked up the interesting things during his previous mission and talked to Tang Jinyu, but when it comes to the latter, he felt a bit down again, because the final winner will always be Xia Ye.

  Qin Ke said dryly: “That’s probably it, you don’t know much if you don’t play on the computer…”

  ”I understand!” Tang Jinyu touched Xia Ye with his arm, and said excitedly, “My brother taught me a lot!”

  ”Oh? What did he teach you?”

  ”Honeypot, it’s great to deal with puppet machines!”

  ”…”

  Qin Ke suspected that he was being taunted, but when he looked at the other side’s serious and happy expression, he was a little uncertain.

  The corners of Xia Ye’s lips raised a little, and he also found out that the little guy could still be naughty sometimes. Qin Ke can’t take advantage of his brother’s side. Even while his brother is gossiping, he is still trying to protect him, just like the puppies in the enclosure, looking quite likable.

  Because of this, Xia Ye didn’t reject Qin Ke very much, and it was rare to see him pleasing to the eye.

  Usually small fishes are very sweet, but occasionally they taste good when they are a little vinegar.

Xia Ye sat in the middle and felt the taste of sweet and sour fish. It was very interesting, and he didn’t stop them from talking.

  There was a bit of chill in the mountains at night, Tang Jinyu sneezed, Xia Ye touched his arm, got up and went to get his coat in the RV.

  Qin Ke sat there still, still trying to catch fish, trying to hook people to his side, “I found a secret.”

  Tang Jinyu said: “What’s the secret?”

  ”I remember seeing that the name of the boss was ‘Xy’ for a while. I was curious for a while. When I was out on a mission, I heard his real name and thought he was particularly narcissistic that he left his own name, but later I saw that it was not his name.” Qin Ke moved a bit closer, blinked at him and said, “Doesn’t it stand for ‘A Little Fish’?”

       (Xy= Xiaoyu)

  Tang Jinyu didn’t expect this at all!

  He blushed immediately!

  But he felt happy while blushing, and took the initiative to praise Qin Ke: “You are so smart, I didn’t know that, but you saw this so easily. Qin Ke, are all of you guys so good at programming? I really, really admire your major…Wow, did you teach yourself? Did you drop out of business school to learn painting? You turned out to be an artist. I can also be regarded as an artist, I play the piano, but I don’t have as much experience as you. You must be a genius!”

  ”Naturally.” Qin Ke was very happy to be praised.

  Tang Jinyu asked again: “I heard that your family is in the hotel business, right?”

  ”Yes.” Qin Ke answered casually, all of them are quite famous hotels at his home and abroad.

  Tang Jinyu immediately jumped on this and said: “I stayed there, it is very good, and the service is also attentive. Every time my teacher takes us out for a game, in order to let us rest better, he specially books this one! I did not expect that these two are also from the Qin group, and so is the amusement park with the same name in Shanghai Stock?”

  ”Correct.”

  Tang Jinyu has never been there, but this does not prevent him from boasting with his eyes closed. Qin Ke has never been there. He just knows that there is such an amusement park, and he is so flattered that he likes this piece of honey in Xia Ye’s house more and more in his heart. Qin Ke looked at the other person and felt that the person in front of him was beautiful, his mouth was sweet, and he could say every compliment in a sincere manner. Even if he knew he was admired, he felt comfortable in his heart. No wonder Xia Ye hid such a baby for several years and refused to let him find him. He was also willing to raise him if it was changed to him. He was very happy to talk to every day, and he wished to take him out to play every day.

  After a compliment, Tang Jinyu paid attention to the movement of the RV, while actively leaning over to ask about Zhuang Ya in a low voice.

  Qin Ke glanced at him and smiled: “That’s what you want to ask, right?”

  Tang Jinyu blinked, and said a little embarrassed: “I’ve only vaguely heard of it, but I don’t know exactly what happened. Are you not from the Qin family? I thought maybe you know a little…” His brother never mentioned anything about his mother, but Tang Jinyu always worried that Zhuang Ya would cause a little trouble. After all, he checked so much information. Song Yi and Qin Ke might’ve been aiming at her intentionally or unintentionally, even though Zhuang Ya was in the Qin family. That kind of life is not easy.

  Qin Ke misunderstood him, he has not started a business, nor is he as high-profile as later. There are not many people who can find out his identity. He only said that Xia Ye had already told the other party and said to him: “It is true. I know some, I used to think that Qin Shuwei was disgusting before, but now I think Zhuang Ya’s hands are black enough. This woman is really powerful, and she is willing to step on anyone for her own sake.”

  ”Qin Shuwei?”

  ”Yes, Qin Shuwei. This is actually quite simple to explain what happened back then. Zhuang Ya got married after she came out of the network, and she has been at home with her husband and son. Others thought she had a good life by finding a great musician, but she was not satisfied. She wanted to go back to the same job as before, but in the past ten years, the pattern has long changed. Where could her skills still stand? She someone gave her a chance and introduced her to Qin Mingcheng. It was Qin Shuwei’s father.”

  What Qin Ke knew also began with Qin Shuwei.

  At that time, he had just formed a bad boy club. From the very beginning, he added some people, but he also kicked out a lot. Anyway, he can drive countless puppet machines by himself, and he has never lacked manpower.

  Qin Shuwei is a member of the Qin family. He didn’t have any relationship with Qin Ke at first, but he was good at camping. After learning that Qin Ke likes to play on computers, he came to him as a man of the great God of hackers. He hinted that he was the first person to break into the telecommunications system in those years. On the other hand, he gave Qin Ke fame and join the boy club- but Qin Shuwei didn’t actually understand this at all, he just wanted to get close to this member of his family of his, he thought Qin Ke admired x, But never expected that what Qin Ke wanted was just a challenge.

Qin Ke wants to replace x and become the new leader. Qin Shuwei’s courtesy is of no use to him. Qin Shuwei persisted in that contest for less than a minute and was embarrassed. Afterwards, in order to save face, Qin Shuwei only said that he was older than Qin Ke and wanted to teach him, but Qin Ke was bored.

  Qin Shuwei didn’t even pass the first hurdle to join the Bad Boys Club, and Qin Ke had doubts about him.

  Everything on the Internet relies on technology to speak. It didn’t take long for Qin Shuwei to be smashed by Qin Ke. He could only admit that the person who wrote the code was not himself. As for the true identity of x, he didn’t know why he psychologically didn’t say anything about it.

  One of the reasons why Qin Ke still cares about him for so many years was because he wanted to know who x was.

  Afterwards, Qin Ke went to participate in the secret mission and met Xia Ye.

  After Qin Ke got his mobile phone, he immediately called the house. He didn’t care about being monitored. After all, he only asked about the relationship of some people in the family. These conditions were checked by Minister Jiang when they came. Qin Ke asked about Qin Shuwei’s father, and also about Zhuang Ya’s past. The Qin family didn’t know much about Zhuang Ya. The name “Xia Ye” flashed past, but Qin Ke understood immediately after hearing it. 

  The reason why Qin Shuwei was bitten to death was not just because of vanity, but because someone had committed the crime for him.

  ”It was your brother who wrote that piece of code, but it was used by Qin Shuwei, and that’s what happened.”

       Tang Jinyu said, “Did Qin Shuwei tell you that?”

  Qin Ke lazily said, “How could it be? He is so arrogant and afraid of things, this kind of good thing must be blown, but it was not.” Xia Ye was young at the time, but a person’s temper was difficult to change. He always felt that Xia Ye would not do such a thing. At best, it might’ve been under-managed or someone had stolen his code, but when checked it, he found that it was all blamed on Xia Ye.

  Tang Jinyu was depressed: “Can you still find it now?”

  Qin Ke smiled and said: “Why should it be check? Qin Shuwei, he committed something this year and is still waiting for bail!”

  ”What happened?”

  ”You kids don’t understand the crime of internet theft,” Qin Ke nodded his head and said with a smile, “As long as you know that your brother is a stingy person and will get revenge, and whatever they owe him, he will get them back.”

  Tang Jinyu was a little bit happy, and wanted to ask more. Xia Ye came over with his coat. Seeing Qin Ke moving his hands and feet, he immediately went over and patted the back of his hand unceremoniously, “Sit farther.”

Qin Ke raised his hand and said innocently: “Boss, how could you? I just  helped you take care of your baby. When you came over and said that to me just now, my heart felt cold. I just wanted to tell you some good news.”

  Xia Ye ignored him and put on Tang Jinyu’s coat. Tang Jinyu curiously asked, “What good news?”

  Qin Ke said: “Doesn’t the Qin family have a good manager who is quite capable of managing herself…No, wasn’t she the well-known President Zhuang? She closed three hotels this year, and the chain of funds on her hand are about to break, and she also signed a gambling agreement with someone, Tut Tut, more than four billion! There are still a few months left, I’m afraid she’s going crazy right now.”

  Xia Ye’s expression was calm, as if he was listening to irrelevant news, “Her business has nothing to do with me.”

  Tang Jinyu looked up at him.

  Xia Ye’s eyes fell on his face, and he reached out and wiped his forehead a few times. Tang Jinyu didn’t understand at first, but later discovered that it was the place where Qin Ke had just pointed his finger.

  Qin Ke glanced at them, tentatively said: “You’re not going to help her, are you?”

  ”No.” Xia Ye frowned. “You are not in a hurry for the Qin family’s own industry. Why do I, an outsider, want to help?”

  ”You’re wrong. We raise wolves, not Gu.” Qin Ke touched his chin and smiled, “If you don’t have the skills, you will be kicked out. Qin has more than one brand under them, so does it mean that each of them has a century-old foundation to save? At the end of the day, it’s all based on ability.”

  Xia Ye didn’t want to talk about Zhuang Ya very much, and took Tang Jinyu back to the RV to rest after sitting for a while.

  Qin Ke asked: “Don’t talk for a while? I kind of like your kid, it’s interesting to talk to him.”

  Xia Ye said: “You have a generation gap with him.”

  Qin Ke raised his eyebrows and said, “Oh, don’t you also have one boss? We only have a three generation gap, so it shouldn’t be a problem.”

  Xia Ye took the person away without reasoning with him.

  Qin Ke strolled back to his side. He came today to test Xia Ye’s attitude. Even if Xia Ye didn’t take action on Qin Shuwei’s affairs, he would have to teach this person a lesson sooner or later, but now it seems that Xia Ye didn’t let this person go. That’s it. As for Zhuang Ya, he originally wanted to see if Xia Ye would still feel soft, and he would help Zhuang Ya up again, and give Xia Ye’s some face, but now it seems that Xia Ye abandoned the past and is no longer entangled, he simply got rid of it neatly.

  It’s a good thing.

  Qin Ke stretched his waist and looked up at the starry sky as he walked. He has always liked the starry sky, and under such depth and vastness, he feels very small.

  Everyone has only experienced a very short life here. If you have to spend so many years with your blood relatives to bear hatred and revenge, it is really not worth it.

  They met Qin Ke during the day, and Xia Ye had an unpleasant dream at night.

  He saw in his dream another life of his own, and experienced a completely different ending from the present.

  In the dream, Zhuang Ya tried her best to gain a foothold in the Qin clan. She fought fiercely. After offending many people, she finally entered the so-called class she dreamed of. Despite paying a great price, she still won.

  Xia Ye was alone. He completed his studies in the same short period of time. After Song Yi found him, the two had the same goals, and sooner or later they were attracted to each other. They soon started an alliance and started a business together.

  It was very difficult to start a business, but he and Song Yi both managed to hold on. When the company just turned around, Zhuang Ya found him.

  Zhuang Ya came to recognize her son. She rarely looked haggard as she sat there, but she still raised her chin and said to him: “What are you still doing online? I told you this before when you were ten years old. Haven’t the lessons of the year been enough? Don’t do those shameful things anymore. Come to my company, I will teach you slowly, and the company will be given to you later.”

  Xia Ye said coldly: “My business has nothing to do with you.”

  Zhuang Ya said angrily: “I am your mother!”

  ”You left, and now you want family affection again?”

  ”Xia Ye!”

  Xia Ye looked at her coldly, without the slightest temperature in his eyes.

  He felt that the woman in front of him was cold in his heart and cold to her bones. If she really regards herself as his mother, she should have seen it herself. His Internet company has just started this year, and his hard work has just paid off. How dare she deny everything about him in one mouthful?

  Zhuang Ya stubbornly wanted him to enter her company, and did not hesitate to chase and block Xia Ye and Song Yi’s company, and made a lot of stumbling. Out of anger, she finally found that head-on-head didn’t work, so she came to Xia Ye in person.

  ”I have a reason for you.” This time she lowered her posture and said slowly: “I’m sick, I have cancer. Last year, I was diagnosed with stomach cancer. I don’t know how long I can live, Xia Ye, that company. It is my 20 years of hard work. I have given too much for it. Now that I know that, I am sorry for your dad and you, but your mother now knows that she was wrong. I am willing to use it as compensation, so can I give it to you?”

Xia Ye looked at her for a while, then shook his head and said: “No, you are not using it to compensate me, but to let me live for you.”

  Zhuang Ya’s expression was stunned, “Why? Such a good career, so many industries, I am giving you money, I will give you all, why would you not take it?”

  ”You have been swallowed by it, it is not your career, it is the monster in your heart.”

  Zhuang Ya went crazy for her career.

  She refused to give her hard work to the Qin family father and son, insisting on giving it to her son Xia Ye. She believed that only Xia Ye could do it better, and for this reason even threatened Xia Ye to expose his hacker identity.

  Zhuang Ya frantically said: “You can’t go anywhere, you can only come to me! I knew that today, I shouldn’t have been soft-hearted back then, I should have insisted on fighting for custody with your dad, and brought you to my side after graduating from middle school, so this wouldn’t have to happen!”

  This time she said irritated Xia Ye. He stared at Zhuang Ya and asked word by word: “When did you contact my dad?”

  ”When you were in the third year of middle school…”

  Xia Ye slammed a fist on the tabletop, and the cup was broken. The tea mixed with the blood in his hand flowed across the tabletop. Xia Ye stared at her with red eyes, gritted his teeth and said, “You are not worthy of being my mother.”

  Third grade was the year his father had a heart attack.

  He remembered clearly that his father’s illness had been stable for many years, but it suddenly became serious when he was in the third year of junior high. They had no money for surgery and no support. He tried everything he could but still failed to save his father’s life, and this woman who kept saying that she wanted to fight for custody rights did not show up after venting with his dad.

  She will always do things for herself.

  The reason for coming was nothing more than for herself.

  Xia Ye completely gave up on the last bit of affection, and cut off contact with Zhuang Ya.

  At the same time, rumors about his identity as a hacker began to appear on the Internet. In order not to affect the operation of the company, Xia Ye settled everything and entrusted it to Song Yi, and went abroad alone. That year, the hacker god, code-named “x”, appeared in front of the public for the first time. It was also that year when he encountered an air crash while transferring flights abroad.

  The memory in the back was intermittent, and he seemed to melt into a white mist, looking at it from the perspective of an onlooker.

  He waited in the white mist for many years, and finally waited for the little guy.

  He grew up with the child until he became a teenager, and watched him live happily in a simple house with his grandfather, and watched the news and current affairs with him.

  It is ridiculous that Mrs. Zhuang, who was terminally ill, was alive and lived well for many years.

  Zhuang Ya has been fighting against cancer. People like her have too strong a desire to survive and can’t die.

  It’s just that life wasn’t good. Qin’s father and son turned against her. After watching for a while, the Qin family decisively helped the Qin family’s father and son. Zhuang Ya was too selfish and could not compete with such a century-old accumulation. So it was only a matter of time for the behemoth to be kicked out of the game, just barely holding on to little face.

  Intermittently in the dream, these images slowly disperse and merge into another scene.

  It was still the child, about five years old, a toddler, stumbling on tiptoes to peek outside through the glass window, Xia Ye inadvertently glanced at him when he passed by, the little guy opened his eyes wide stupidly, he only knew how to look at him.

  Like a “little fool” living next door.

  …

  Xia Ye got up very early, he was exhausted by the things in the dream. When he moved, Tang Jinyu who was sleeping next to him woke up. He rubbed his eyes while rubbing his eyes and said with a nasal voice, “Brother, where are you going…”

  ”It’s still early, I’ll go for a walk, and you will sleep for a while.”

  Tang Jinyu shook his head, sat up and said, “I’m not tired, I’ll go out with you.”

  ”Okay.”

  The two watched the sunrise together, the air in the mountains was fresh, and Xia Ye watched the slowly rising sun smelling the fragrance of the vegetation around him, and the frustration in his heart slowly exhaled.

  Tang Jinyu sat with him, was warmed by his brother wrapped in a coat and trench coat, talked to him in a low voice, and laughed even when he did not say a word.

  Xia Ye’s mood improved a lot with him, he bowed his head and kissed him, holding him like a baby.

  It seems that with this person by his side, everything in the past is not important, he can start looking forward to a new life without burden, looking forward to the good things he will have.

  When they returned to the camp, Song Yi and Yin Qing were cooking. Yin Qing’s cooking skills were in proportion to her beauty. She cooked good dishes, and cooked early and brought them to eat with everyone. It’s always easier for friends to laugh more when they get together. Song Yi talked about houses in Shanghai when he was eating. He saw Tang Jinyu and asked: “Xiaoyu’s houses have been approved. Tell me where to buy a house next time, and I will follow you to buy it. It’s just the intention of changing two for one, which is more profitable than going to work.”

  Xia Ye said: “Are you also superstitious?”

  Song Yi shook his head and said with a smile: “I just believe in luck. After a certain stage of things, I really have to rely on luck.” There are too many people in this world who work as hard as them, not just hard work. It makes sense to succeed, to do everything and to obey destiny.

  Xia Ye turned his head and glanced at the little guy next to him. Tang Jinyu thought he was supervising his own meal. He ate the bread in his hand and drank half a cup of milk. He was very obedient.

  Xia Ye chuckled lightly.

  It really took a lifetime of luck for him to find him.

  The three-day camping trip soon ended. Xia Ye took Tang Jinyu back to the Coral Hotel, met with the elders in the family, and then returned to Shanghai together.

  On the way back, they met a group of middle school students led by a teacher to participate in the competition at the airport.

  They were teenagers who were wearing school uniforms. Tang Jinyu felt familiar when he saw them. After looking for a while, he discovered that it was the uniform of the middle school in Pingcheng, exactly the same as the one he wore back then.

  A tall and sturdy male student ran over with two chicken drumsticks, and the few who were close to him immediately surrounded him. Everyone took a bite. The male student said generously, “You guys, I just ate two of them, the bread is too soft, neither of them made me full.”

Tang Jinyu heard his voice familiar, and when he looked at him carefully, he suddenly became happy.

  The first one is the one in their class who likes to eat pancakes. When he was still studying in Pingcheng, he had to go to the school gate to buy pancakes and buy meat at night. He also looked at the other people that looked familiar sharing bread over there. He remembered some of their names, but he couldn’t remember some of them couldn’t clearly, but he knew their names were right once he saw their faces.

  Tang Jinyu kept looking there, Xia Ye couldn’t help but glanced over, and asked in a low voice, “What’s wrong?”

  Tang Jinyu lifted his feet and said something in his brother’s ear. Xia Ye looked at the group of students over there and their expressions became more relaxed. He rubbed Tang Jinyu’s head, “I see, I’ll do it.”

  A few minutes later, Manager Song went to negotiate with the other team leader.

  Song Yi has already donated bursaries to many schools. In addition, their company is now so famous that almost everybody knows. Song Yi negotiated with the other teacher and wrote a check to donate money to these children. So that they can have fun outside of this game.

  The teacher from the other party never expected to encounter such a lucky thing, and took the students to thank him, and Song Yi waved his hand and said: “It’s okay, I will go to your school to set up scholarships to encourage students to study hard.” He took a look at the student, and looked at the tallest boy, and asked: “Are you Wang Hui?”

  The boy was stunned, nodded and agreed.

  Song Yi gave him the bag he was carrying, and said with a smile: “I just heard your teacher say that you have made a lot of progress this time, here’s your reward.”

Advertisements

  Wang Hui was a little stunned. When he took it, he blushed. He looked at the teacher and saw that the teacher nodded before he took it. He whispered his thanks.

  Song Yi didn’t stay much, and left soon.

  Many classmates gathered around, wanting to see what reward Wang Hui got.

  When Wang Hui opened the bag, there was a new mobile phone inside, which aroused the envy of many classmates. Wang Hui looked up at the back of Song Yi’s departure. He felt a little strange, but he was still mostly excited. Sure enough, if you study hard, something good will happen! His mother didn’t lie to him, he couldn’t help but be too happy!

  Tang Jinyu hid and took a peek, seeing the other person happy, and bending his eyes with a smile, he folded the phone receipt and put it in his pocket. When his grandfather was sick and was hospitalized for the last period of time, this group of classmates helped out at school. There are a lot of them, and that classmate named Wang Hui sold him a smartphone for two hundred yuan, and this made the ward a little more joyful.

  He can finally pay them back now.

  Xia Ye stayed with him again, and after Tang Jinyu finished reading, took his hand and left.

  Their trip was over and it’s time to go home.

  1. I’m glad the thing with Xia Ye’s mom was explained and it was that annoying Shuwei who actually used Xia Ye’s code back then 😩 Gosh I’m still angry and I want to see some detailed revenge but it’s okay 😌 XiaoYu being cute is all I need 😆 Thanks for the chapter 😘♥️

  2. I’m so very grateful they never tried redeeming Xia Ye’s mother. There is such a tendency to value elders to the point of tolerating outright abuse that is frankly unimaginable for me and my life experiences. Not every parent deserves to be a parent. Blood by itself means nothing. It’s what you do with that connection that matters. I have truly wonderful parents I love and respect, but I know plenty who have a mother and/or a father not worthy of their roles. Sometimes the healthy path is total separation.

    Things really came full circle this chapter! This rebirth may remain a mystery, and in a story with such gentle emotions that’s honestly preferable to diving into random sci fi paths making this possible, but both of the main couple experienced it to some extent. This is a love built through two lifetimes!

    Thanks for your hard work translating!

  3. Alright. My speculations from the last chapter can be scrapped, but this reality makes me have a lot less respect for Zhuang Ya.
    Although I don’t agree with her actions, I could’ve accepted it if she just left her family for her career, but she set her son up as a scapegoat, blamed him, then turned around later and wanted to use him. Sad excuse for a human being.

    Two chapters until the finale! 🥳🥳
