Another Male lead
Luo Bei really suspected that the girl might be chasing after Zhou Jianguo, which was why she had come seeking his business.
Zhou Jianguo said that he didn’t even graduate from primary school; which she didn’t believe at all. How could she tell? This was a woman’s sixth sense. She felt that Zhou Jianguo was a very capable person; however, everyone had their own secrets. Zhou Jianguo didn’t want to say it, so she didn’t poke him about it.
At this moment, Zhou Jianguo was ready to go out after taking a shower.
He went out to the construction site every morning and didn’t return until the afternoon. After eating and taking a shower, he delivered take-out food at around 10 o’clock, even delivering water in the process. Luo Bei felt that even an iron man couldn’t stand it.
Zhou Jianguo suddenly asked, “Don’t you think sleeping is a waste of time?”
Luo Bei thought to herself, is sleeping wasting time? She couldn’t wait to stay in bed for two days for the weekend.
“According to research, the average person who sleeps seven to eight hours a day had the longest lifespan. 80% of those who slept more than 10 hours at night would have a short life. I deliver take-out food back around 10 p.m. every day. I would brush my teeth, wash my face, and take a bath for no more than 20 minutes. Because I was busy all day, I fell asleep fairly quickly. Normally, I would sleep before 11 p.m. and wake up at 6:30 a.m., sleeping for seven and a half hours maximum at the end of the day. I think it’s just right.”
“Moreover, as far as I know, most young people rarely sleep before 12 o’clock. Whether playing on a mobile phone or watching TV, I consider it a waste of time.”
Luo Bei was truly impressed.
She had almost been brainwashed.
Actually, there weren’t many young people who could sleep before 11 o’clock.
Zhou Jianguo’s schedule was very strict.
Luo Bei separated from Zhou Jianguo on the first floor. She said sincerely, “I really think you will be rich in the future.”
Frankly speaking, there are really no people around here who work so hard. Everyone works from nine to six, and enthusiasm for entering the society of several will slowly disappear in their work. She had never seen people who work with such high intensity and enjoy it as Zhou Jianguo.
She felt that even if Zhou Jianguo hadn’t graduated from elementary school, with his current pace, he would definitely be achieving some results.
Zhou Jianguo chuckled. “Then I’ll lend you my blessing.”
Strangely, he didn’t have a strong opinion about the goal of becoming rich, he just liked the feeling of working hard to make money.
After thinking about it carefully, he didn’t have any high requirements for food; it just needed to be simple. It was the same for his abode, just like how he lived in a basement, which he felt was pretty good. As for the rest, there wasn’t even a need to mention it.
His workmates all said that he was going all out to save funds for marriage. He didn’t deny it, but he knew in his heart that it wasn’t the case.
Zhao Pianpian’s heart ached for Fang Jingzhou; after all, she was already a mother. She couldn’t understand her actions, which mother would slander her son in front of strangers? Which mother would lock her son in a small room for several days? She didn’t turn on the lights, didn’t speak to him, and wholly ignored him. In reality, this was even crueler than beating and scolding him.
It had indeed left a psychological mark.
He was very sensitive to words like ‘thief’. Even if a character in the TV series said such a word, he would hideaway. What was more serious was that he had to leave the lights on when he slept; he was afraid of the dark.
Just as Zhou Jianguo had said, this was only the beginning. If Fang Jingzhou stayed with Chen Lan, Luo Bei would one day be out of reach. At that time, what kind of predicament would Fang Jingzhou face? No one could voice it well, but everyone knew that the situation would be dire.
Luo Bei vaguely knew that Fang Jingzhou must have broken up with her boyfriend, and it was very likely that her boyfriend knew about Chen Lan’s existence; so, she believed that the boy was the reason for her life had taken a turn for the worse; hence, her initial neglect and impatience had changed into her current disgust and hatred.
Luo Bei called Fang Jingzhou’s mother and briefly explained the situation.
The grandmother immediately expressed that she would immediately take the train to see what was going on.
Actually, Luo Bei wasn’t sure if her actions would be effective; after all, she didn’t know whether a daughter or a grandson would be what a mother would need in such a circumstance.
It was hard to say that someone’s personality would become like that, but it had nothing to do with their original family.
The next day: Fang Jingzhou probably knew about her mother’s arrival. She ran into Luo Bei when she left the house. Although she was still afraid of Luo Bei, she couldn’t help but feel angry.
” Luo Bei, aren’t you being a little too lenient? If you want to take care of a child, I’ll let you be the nanny for free. Why did you ask my mother to come? You even told my mother on the phone that I was abusing the child. No matter what, this is my family’s business. You don’t have to stretch your hand too long, that’s unreasonable.”
“Isn’t this abuse? You called him a thief in front of outsiders and even locked him in the house for a few days without turning on the lights. Yes, you didn’t hit him or scold him, but your actions are psychological abuse. Fang Jingzhou, I sincerely suggest you go see a psychiatrist.”
Luo Bei didn’t think there was a need to be polite with this person. After all, some people were born to bully the weak and fear the strong.
“Besides, you think that your life isn’t as good as it should be. Chen Lan is a burden, but have you ever thought about it? The reason why you’re living like this is all because of you. He didn’t want you to give birth to him, he didn’t have the choice, so you have to bear the consequences and responsibility. How can you vent your failures and disappointments on your child?”
Fang Jingzhou’ eyes turned red with red anger.
“What do you know? You’ve never been a single mother. How can you be accusing me?!”
“Yes, I’ve never been a mother, but I know that an adult has to pay for their own decisions. You gave birth to him. Yes! It was you who chose to be a single mother and no one forced you to do so. Then why should you let a child bear the consequences? What did he do wrong? The only thing he did wrong was to choose you as his mother!”
Before Luo Bei returned, she looked back at Chen Lan. ” If you don’t love him, no one will blame you. But if you deliberately hurt him, I don’t think the heavens will be able to bear it because he is your kin.”
She didn’t bother with the mother’s reaction and headed downstairs.
Recently, a milk tea shop had suddenly stirred the public. She came to the door of the milk tea shop and saw that the queue was very long. Just as she was about to go to another shop, she heard someone calling her.
She leaned closer and observed it was Zhou Jianguo. Shouldn’t he be at the construction site?
“Why didn’t you go to work?” Luo Bei asked.
“I’m resting this afternoon. There seems to be some sort of dispute.”
Luo Bei nodded.” Are you also lining up to buy milk tea?”
“I don’t like this. It’s not nutritious. Isn’t this milk tea shop very popular recently? I’m lining up to help people buy it. It’s hard work.”
Luo Bei was speechless.
“Do you want a taste? It’s probably going to be my turn in ten minutes. I’ll buy whatever you want.”
Zhou Jianguo paused and continued,
“Don’t worry, I won’t charge you for my hard work.”
Just how many jobs did he have!!
Luo Bei looked at Zhou Jianguo who was working hard to earn money. She was really ashamed.
He could even help people queue up for tea…
If this person didn’t make a fortune, the heavens would not tolerate it!
While they were waiting in line, a couple was discussing stock market. The man confidently said that the stock he bought would definitely rise. At that time, he might be able to collect the down payment. Although the woman felt that it wasn’t safe, she didn’t voice her concerns and just advised him to be careful.
“It’s not going up, it’s going down.” Zhou Jianguo saw that Luo Bei was listening seriously and whispered into her ear, “Don’t buy it.”
Luo Bei had no intention of buying the stock at all. However, when she heard Zhou Jianguo’s solemn vow, she was still a little puzzled and asked,
“How do you know?”
Zhou Jianguo gave a brief explanation.
Luo Bei couldn’t make any sense of it…
“I don’t believe that you haven’t graduated from primary school.”
In fact, Zhou Jianguo didn’t know why he understood this. He even met two foreigners on the road two days ago. They spoke English, and he could understand them.
Occasionally, he would be curious about who he was. However, since no one knew him, he didn’t want to waste his energy on such problems.
It seemed like he was born with a personality that didn’t allow him to want to waste time and think about meaningless things.
Since he didn’t have any memories and couldn’t remember anything, he couldn’t be bothered to think about it.
No matter who he was in the past, at least he had to guarantee that he would lead a good life without even knowing who he was.
In the deep night, after a few months, Luo Bei had once again dreamed.
The male lead was a typical aristocrat from the Humble Class. His family only had an elderly grandmother. When he was studying, he was a top student. Before he graduated, he started his own company. When he was less than 30, the company was officially successfully listed. To outsiders, the male lead was handsome and tall. He was comparable to a celebrity. He was very capable and skilled. He was a president with money and power. However, his personality was very strange.
He hated women, looked down on them, didn’t have friends, didn’t trust anyone, and even ignored everyone around him from the bottom of his heart.
Cold, ruthless, selfish.
It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that he was a top-notch individual, but if one were to really consider it, the reason why he had become so was that other than his own personality, the person who affected him the most was his own mother.
The male lead’s mother was a college student from a county to a big city. Her appearance was not bad, but she loved vanity, was unwilling to live an ordinary life, and hated her background. By a coincidence, she met the male protagonist’s father, The two of them quickly hooked up. She thought that she could marry into a wealthy family as a broad wife, but the male lead’s father warned her that he was going to marry someone he had liked for many years. If she dared to cause trouble, he would make her disappear.
She was shocked by this. She knew that this rich second-generation family had a very high status in the capital and his unmarried wife’s family was even more prominent. If she really made a scene, no one would care about the child in her stomach. Originally, she wanted to directly abort the child, but after coming to the hospital, for some reason, she refused to abort the child. She wanted to give birth to this child and when the child grew up, she might be able to share her wealth.
Unexpectedly, when the male lead was more than two years old, both of these two families were sacked. The male protagonist’s father took his wife directly abroad, and there was no news.
She didn’t dare to bring her child to their house, afraid that she would be affected.
Later on, she had also met a good match. She had already developed to the point of meeting her parents. However, the man’s cousin was her former school junior sister. Knowing about her, the man couldn’t tolerate her past. He couldn’t accept that she had a child, so he broke up with her.
She vented all her emotions on the child. Later on, when the child was five years old, she gave up on herself and started to seduce men from different directions.
Every day, there were all kinds of men coming to the house. He could see his mother making out with strangers almost every day, he hated it obviously. He didn’t want his mother to go out, and he didn’t want anyone to come home every day. He wanted to lock the door, but it was useless. He had thought about running away from home, but he wasn’t able to do it. When the male lead was ten years old, her mother became sick of living like this. She probably felt that it was meaningless to live and jumped into the river to commit suicide.
The male lead was taken back to his hometown by his grandmother. However, under such circumstances, his personality was already distorted.
