It never crossed Shen Jie’s mind that Si Yi would take the matter into account to this extent.
In the past, it was always Shen Jie who bullied others. There was no way others would be able to mistreat him. He was also one who liked forming cliques, grouping into a gang when he was studying overseas just to fight others.
Due to such circumstances, Shen Jie thought that he was almighty. When he kicked Qin Yirou just now, his spoiled rich kid mannerism showed as he went all-out in the attack.
What Shen Jie did not expect was Si Yi getting physical with him and was so fierce that he did not even have the chance to counterattack.
“I...” Shen Jie had to surrender under Si Yi’s pressure. Shaking like a leaf, he continued to say, “I’m wrong! I can apologize...”
Shen Jie felt like his legs were close to being crippled. He had never met people like Si Yi and Yun Jian. One had just hit him and actually not killed him because Qin Yirou stopped her while another crushed his bones with one singular kick.
He had just kicked Qin Yirou several times!
If Shen Jie had known that this would happen, he would most probably not do anything to Qin Yirou. He simply would not dare to!
However, Si Yi did not regard Shen Jie this time. He yanked Shen Jie’s collar again and kicked his stomach in front of Ge Xuan and Ge Junjian. It nearly broke all of Shen Jie’s bones.
“Oww!” Shen Jie was sent flying with another howl and fell down with a heavy thud, no longer making any sound after he landed. He was not dead—just unconscious.
“Sh-Shen Jie!” Ge Xuan and Shen Jie’s two other friends dashed for the young man in shock.
“F*ck!” Ge Xuan cursed and ran toward his friend as well.
After the kick, Si Yi did not seem worried about Shen Jie’s state as he made his way into the house. His tall and lean silhouette swiftly vanished before everyone’s sight in the drizzling rain.
Shen Jie was his bro after all, so Ge Xuan and the two other friends helped carry Shen Jie to the hospital. Ge Junjian did not go with them, going back to the house after leaving Ge Xuan with some reminders.
Ge Xuan then sped off with his sports car to take Shen Jie who had passed out to a nearby hospital.
Ge Xuan’s return that escalated the conflict dampened the mood of the dinner at Ge Junjian’s house, so the group did not manage to eat much—except Ya Dang, Mo Sen, and a few others, of course.
Yun Jian and the rest had still gone back to Dong Ruan’s villa at night. When Yun Jian came back from her morning run the next day, Qin Yirou had already gone to Ge Junjian’s house to prepare breakfast for Ge Xuan.
Ge Junjian had left for the military while kind as Qin Yirou was, she was worried that Ge Xuan would not have breakfast since he was alone at home, so she rushed there to prepare the meal for him.
Fretting that Ge Xuan or his bros would find fault with Qin Yirou, Yun Jian went to Ge Junjian’s house with two pieces of bread that Qin Yirou had prepared for her, treating it as a walk. As she got to the gate of Ge Junjian’s house, she bumped into Ge Xuan who had just left the villa.
Ge Xuan scoffed the moment he saw Yun Jian and wanted to go around her to leave.
“Stop,” Yun Jian uttered softly without turning to look at Ge Xuan.
Her soft hum earned a snort from Ge Xuan before he resumed going around her to go outside.
“Let’s race as a bet, what do you think? As a car racing fan, you should be incredibly interested in racing. If I win, you’re not allowed to be rude to my mom again,” Yun Jian said, not disgruntled at all as she watched Ge Xuan leave going around her.
Her words stunned Ge Xuan as expected. The latter stopped in his track and turned to look at Yun Jian with an astonished gaze. “How did you know I’m interested in car racing?”
