Xie Quan knew how to make a person feel bad. A beating? It’s not enough. You have to get what the person values most. For example, he thought a slap on the wrist was not as irritating as punishment created by his hand.
So, he also had to get a hold of what Janice valued most. Janice was also very easy to see through; she was vain, loved money, and her face. Of course, she also loved her omega son, Xie Yi.
Xie Quan wanted to make a move on Xie Yi, who was Janice’s hope of escaping her class, and she would have been devastated if Xie Yi had been destroyed. But the idea only lingered in Xie Quan’s mind for a few minutes, and then was quickly abandoned.
Xie Yi was not bad by nature and should not be implicated. Therefore, Xie Quan decided to seize the first three points to attack.
Janice, a greedy and money-loving person, could take her nephew’s property for granted and without guilt, and she would do the same with the others. So, Xie Quan had Xiao Bai hack into the tax office’s database to get the Xie family’s tax records, and then hacked into the family’s various bank accounts to sort out Janice’s hidden unpaid tax assets to make it clear.
Xie Dongye started a company with the money from rent collection, and Janice was managing the company’s accounts. But the company’s accounts were not a problem, probably because they did not dare to break the law so blatantly.
However, it was okay since it was easy to create a few problems.
After sending the report letter, in order to prevent Xie Dongye and Janice from bribing the officials of the tax office to get away with it, Xie Quan also sent a “friendly” request email to the head of the tax office to manage the matter. In it, the Xie family’s financial problems were displayed, and he sincerely requested that they make sure to investigate in detail and punish the offenders severely.
[Attachment: intimate photos of a certain leader’s relationship with his mistress.]
After dealing with all this, Xie Quan put the matter aside for the time being because he had more important things to do.
At 11:15 that night, it was about to be the time written on the mysterious note. However, Xie Quan did not intend to go to the garden, but stood in the corridor where the lights were out, and then leaned against the windowsill, quietly looking at the garden below.
He was not stupid.
He would not go to such a suspicious appointment at first glance. But he was also curious, at 11:30, would there really be someone in the garden?
At 11:17, the sound of footsteps rang out.
Not from the garden, but from the corridor.
Xie Quan looked up and saw that it was Tang Wenshao, who seemed to have just finished his shift and was wearing civilian clothes instead of his doctor’s uniform.
“Mr. Xie, what a coincidence.” He approached. “Aren’t you resting at this late hour?” He said with concern, “You just finished surgery, you should rest early, you can’t stay up late.”
Looking at Tang Wenshao who appeared here, Xie Quan frowned. He glanced distractedly in the direction of the garden, which was still empty. Tang Wenshao asked curiously, “Are you looking at something?”
Xie Quan thought for a moment and was surprisingly honest, replying, “I’m looking at the garden.”
Tang Wenshao sounded puzzled. “What’s so beautiful about the garden? It’s the middle of the night, and you can’t see it clearly.”
Looking steadily at Tang Wenshao’s face, but not seeing anything suspicious, Xie Quan lowered his eyes. “Is the doctor still not going back?”
Tang Wenshao laughed. “I’ll be right back, I just finished seeing the patients… You know, the victims.”
Xie Quan froze for a moment and asked, “Have you worked out a cure yet?”
“How is it possible…” Tang Wenshao said, “It’s not that easy, that kind of damage is irreversible, and pity them, they’ll probably spend the rest of their lives like that, although it will be a very short life.”
Tang Wenshao suddenly said leisurely in the darkness, “Actually, Mr. Xie, I’ve always wondered if the victims were chosen voluntarily.”
Xie Quan raised his eyebrows. “Why do you say that?”
Tang Wenshao said slyly, “You see, you are an omega, many times this gender alone already means you have many advantages. In primitive communities, the alpha is the warrior, the omega is the breeder and the leader, and the beta is just the lowest of the low, responsible for the alpha and omega to serve. And in modern civilization, the beta is just as unpopular, at the bottom of the social ladder.”
He reached out his hand and looked out the window, a shocking scar on his wrist was particularly clear in the moonlight.
“All betas long to have a chance to be divided again.” His hand squeezed into a fist, as if he were grasping that chance.
Xie Quan’s gaze was fixed on the wound on his wrist, and he lowered his voice and asked, “So, do you want to have that chance too, doctor?”
Tang Wenshao’s eyes beneath his glasses curved up. “Mr. Xie, you misunderstood. In fact, I’m not doing too badly, it doesn’t matter. I’m just talking about the victims, they didn’t live as well as they wanted to, maybe they volunteered to take a chance. Only, it failed.”
Xie Quan listened, his eyes moving slightly. “That’s not what Doctor seemed to say in the quarantine area before.”
At the time, what he said was “people who do things like that can be cruel.”
Tang Wenshao laughed. “That’s not a contradiction, the people who can do it are cruel, but the victims may not be reluctant. It’s like the ‘beta redifferentiation’ experiment decades ago.”
“That experiment was brutal, but those who participated in it did so willingly, even eager to make their own sacrifices in exchange for progress.” Tang Wenshao looked out the window, his gaze distant. “In fact, I’ve been thinking that if that experiment hadn’t been stopped and the third prince had become the final victor, perhaps the world would be different today, and the betas could all have the opportunity to be re-divided and could get out of this unpleasant situation. When there are many people who would rather give their lives to bring some change to this world, doesn’t it mean that the world is already very sick? Perhaps the people who did this are in the same mood as the experimenters at the beginning, all for the better future of the community.”
Xie Quan had been listening in silence until now, when he asked, without any ups and downs, “Are you not afraid of death when you say such things?”
Tang Wenshao smiled, as if he was aware of what he had said. “There is no one else here, so I’ll just talk to you, just don’t tell anyone else.”
Xie Quan frowned and said coldly, “You don’t have to say such things to me, we don’t know each other that well.”
Tang Wenshao scratched his ear awkwardly and said, “I’ll pay attention next time…” His voice suddenly trailed off.
He looked out the window at the garden below and said with a smile, “I just said no one was here in the middle of the night, but I didn’t expect someone to come.”
Xie Quan hurried to look. In the garden, with only a weak light, there was a woman in a long dress. She wobbled towards the garden fountain, as if drunk.
Xie Quan frowned, is this the person who asked him out?
The woman walked up to the fountain and settled down. Immediately after, in the next second she suddenly plunged headlong into the water—
The pheromone that was full of impurities once again erupted in the garden fountain, this time it was the pheromone of an omega.
Xie Quan’s pupils tightened.
At that moment, Tang Wenshao said, “Is it another victim?”
Xie Quan tightened his eyebrows, then turned around and prepared to go downstairs. The strong pheromones spread quickly, and several buildings in the hospital near the garden had already set off a racket, with lights coming on.
And Tang Wenshao suddenly cursed then, saying, “This Yan Bai is really too much.”
Xie Quan’s footsteps lurched and he turned his head. “What did you say?”
Tang Wenshao said suspiciously, “Don’t you know? Now everyone is suspecting Yan Bai is the murderer.”
Xie Quan’s face was as cold as frost. He didn’t know. Yan Bai himself did not even know he was the murderer.
The author has something to say: oooh I know I know I’m late updating again!
But actually you should have guessed from my crazy replies in the comments section today… The author has started fishing again, so a late update is to be expected hahahahahahahahahahaha —
–I’m sorry, I’ll never touch a fish again (sincerely).
I think a lot of little theater every time I write! But when it came time to put the text up, I forgot all about it!
So angry! I’m going to take a little notebook next time to write down all the tawdry things I think.
Makes me that much more suspicious of the doctor! What situation is this with the woman! Who is she!? Looking forward to next chapter. Thank you for the translation and editing.
Thank You for the new chapter (´,,•ω•,,)♡
I am really not sure about whether Tang Wenshao is the ultimate bad guy, or just appears to be and it’s someone else. However, he could have set this whole thing up, including the female patient; pre-empting that Xie Quan wouldn’t be stupid enough to go directly to the garden.
Loving all the releasing stories on ERs right now; I’d never read multiple stories at the same time before joining! Good for the brain ☺
Thanks for translating and editing.
the author was so carefree, huh… 😅
This doctor is getting more and more suspicious!
Thank you for the chapter!
Dundundunn more schemes and revelations~~ (✪▽✪)
I hate the doctor!, he’s one of those ambiguous characters that will be like “oh, the world is corrupted and needs healing” and then xie Quan will be like “yes, your right I agree” the doctor then kills people and then xie Quan will be like “what? I thought i could trust you who knew you were so evil and corrupted” and then the doctor ends up either dieing evil or good. I love the story though, keep it up!
