Chapter 147.1 I care about him more than you do
The next day Pei Qiu, accompanied by Lin An Lan, met with the police.
“You’re the one who reported the incident?” The police asked Pei Qiu.
Pei Qiu nodded, “Yesterday morning, no, it should be early this morning. I was driving back when I suddenly saw a truck speeding towards me. I immediately turned the wheel and swerved to avoid it, but the truck hit a tree. I got out of the car and saw that the person was injured, so I called the police and an ambulance.”
The police had already reviewed the surveillance footage before arriving and so nodded at Pei Qiu’s account. “You’re quite capable.”
“Not at all.” Pei Qiu smiled.
Lin An Lan asked them, “How is he doing?”
“He’s been rescued and is now in the hospital. He was inebriated and not clear-headed, which is why he almost hit you. Was this an accident or do you think he did it on purpose?”
Lin An Lan shook his head, “I don’t know him.”
“Then it must have been an accident. You have no grudges against each other, so he has no reason to hit you intentionally.”
“Maybe, thank you.”
“You’re welcome. If you have any other clues about this matter in the future, you can contact me anytime.” One of the policemen said, giving Lin An Lan his phone number.
Saving it, Lin An Lan said sincerely, “Thank you.”
“It’s what we should do.”
The police spoke to them about the details of the drunk driver before leaving.
Lin An Lan was calm from beginning to end. Looking at him, Pei Qiu asked, “Have you told Young Master Cheng yet?”
“When are you going to tell him?”
“When it’s more appropriate.”
Pei Qiu reminded him on a whisper, “The longer you wait, the easier it is for the evidence to be destroyed. By then, the drunk driver can just say he was drunk and not sober and you won’t be able to pin Cheng Xiao down.”
Lin An Lan turned around to look at him. Pei Qiu’s face was clean and bright, just like that of a teenager’s. Patting his shoulder, he told him, “I can’t pin Cheng Xiao down right now either.”
Pei Qiu was stunned for a moment then immediately understood what he meant.
With the Cheng family’s influence, together with the fact that Lin An Lan was unharmed and with Cheng Xiao’s age and status, it would be impossible for him to go to jail easily.
Putting aside the fact that Lin An Lan was fine now, even if something had happened to him, Cheng Xiao had a team of lawyers who could easily fight for a chance to receive medical parole.
“If Young Master Cheng wants to, then…..”
“That’s not what I want.” Lin An Lan said softly.
“What do you want then?”
“You’ve never been in love before, have you?” Lin An Lan smiled.
Pei Qiu was a little embarrassed. “I’ll experience it in the future.”
“Then you’ll understand in the future.”
“Let’s go, let’s not stand here. Let’s go study your English.”
Wilting instantly, Pei Qiu followed Lin An Lan back.
Cheng Feng called Lin An Lan back at noon.
“Regarding last night, I’m sorry. I promise that something like that won’t happen again, so I hope you won’t tell Xiao Yu about this. Can you do that?”
He assumed that Lin An Lan would agree to his request.
Because, given how much Cheng Yu valued him, he wouldn’t have remained silent about this for so long if he knew about it. However even up till now, Cheng Yu hadn’t come home or made any phone calls, which meant he really didn’t know and that Lin An Lan hadn’t told him either, and that probably meant that Lin An Lan didn’t want to make a fuss about this incident.
However, Lin An Lan’s response quickly shattered his assumption.
“I accept your apology and hope that you will keep your promise. However, I won’t keep this from Cheng Yu.”
Cheng Feng was confused. “You want to tell him?”
“Aren’t you just causing trouble? If you do this how will he get along with his grandfather in the future?”
Lin An Lan found his words somewhat ridiculous. “When Cheng Xiao tried to kill me, didn’t he think about how he would get along with his grandson in the future? He didn’t care so why should I have to consider him?”
Cheng Feng felt that he couldn’t understand Lin An Lan at all. He had thought last night that this child was mature, considerate and capable of looking at the bigger picture, which was why he had called him instead of Cheng Yu, so why did he want to tell Cheng Yu now?
“I’ve already promised you so you know you won’t be in danger anymore, so why involve Xiao Yu? Will you only be satisfied when they become enemies and start fighting each other?”
“President Cheng, it seems you’ve forgotten that I am the victim here. Isn’t it ridiculous for you to speak to me in that tone?”
Cheng Feng: “….Tell me, what do I have to do for you not to tell Xiao Yu?”
“Cheng Yu is my boyfriend, the only connection between Cheng Xiao and I. He has the right to know and I don’t like keeping things from him so I will definitely tell him. That’s not something that can be changed.”
Cheng Feng: “….”
Cheng Feng had no more words. He just felt that sure enough, children were debts. He just had one child and he could actually anger him to death like this.
And his father! He had become confused due to old age! How could he have done such a stupid thing! And he was even threatening him with others!
He had to protect his son’s rights and also preserve his father’s face. He wanted to sit down with the two of them for them to talk things out, but this grandfather and grandson were both too stubborn. They completely didn’t care about the other and just did what they wanted.
Cheng Feng was so angry that he didn’t want to talk.
Noticing that Cheng Feng seemed to be at a loss for words, Lin An Lan said, “But you can rest assured that Cheng Xiao won’t be in any danger. After all, he’s Cheng Yu’s grandfather. I don’t care about him but I care about Cheng Yu, so I will tell him but also persuade him.”
“You want to tell him and then persuade him? Don’t you think that’s too troublesome? You might as well not say anything at all!”
