r>Lin Min was stunned, not really understanding what Lin Sui meant.
Lin Sui spoke with an unchanging face: “I only want to be a second generation ancestor that takes advantage of his position and does nothing but eat and wait for death3.
Jiejie, I’m counting on you to take care of the family business.”
Lin Min was a little panicked.
Her usual brainwashing clashed with her own ambitions, leaving her not knowing what to do.
She rebuked him: “A-Sui, what are you talking about? Be careful, if father hears, he’ll beat you up, you’re the only boy in the family…..”
Lin Sui interrupted her: “You’re also our father’s child, your surname is also Lin, your children can also be surnamed Lin.
Jiejie, people make choices, don’t let choices be made for you.
If you have the ability, why shouldn’t you do it?”
Lin Min’s mind became excited, but she still joked: “Obviously your talent and ability is better than mine.”
“Everyone has ambitions.” Lin Sui spoke carelessly, not modest at all when it came to others’ compliments, his eyes stirred up emotion as he looked at the person standing next to him, slowly saying: “Jiejie, you have this kind of ambition, why not go for it?”
The young man held the cup of wine, his fair fingers a stark contrast to the scarlet liquid, his voice like ethereal music in the night sky, brimming with enticing desire.
The System was puzzled, asking: [Why are you doing this?]
The System knew Lin Sui lacked familial love and thirsted for power, so it gave him these two things, and then gave him the character design of someone who loved courting death as something he must abide by in order to entangle Lin Sui.
But why was Lin Sui so delighted to just hand over his power to someone else?
Lin Sui didn’t answer it, letting this divine existence that didn’t understand human nature remain confused.
Lin Sui liked power.
In his original world, capital was the power he used to climb upwards and which allowed him to stand undefeated at the summit.
In the cultivation world, this kind of power became the ability to cultivate, so he urgently looked for a way to cast off his constitution and become strong.
He was unwilling to accept fate, and he wouldn’t feel at ease unless he was strong enough.
As for now, if his mission had been to hinder the Son of Fortune, he could have just gone out into the business world on the day he transmigrated.
Would Yan Qin still have room to develop then?
But his mission was not that, so there was no need for him to work himself to death while he just waited to send Yan Qin to the top in the future.
The System just wanted him to seize power, and then kowtow three times towards the future Yan Qin as he called out ‘long live!’ and handed his power over.
There would be no such convenient thing.
Lin Sui had his own plans, but he wouldn’t clearly announce these plans to the world, especially since he didn’t want to let the System understand.
He looked at the Lin Min in front of him, whose line of thinking was somewhat in disarray, and turned his wrist to place the cup back on the table after finishing the last sip.
“Jie, consider what I just said, the opportunity is yours to grasp.
I can always help you, if there is anything you’re unsure of, you can come talk it over with me.
Get some rest soon, okay?”
Lin Min absent-mindedly watched the young man’s back as he left, feeling a little strange.
Was this person really her younger brother?
Lin Min couldn’t help but shake her head, she might be out of her mind, if that wasn’t her brother, who was he?
Lin Sui stayed in the Lin house for four days before returning to his own villa under the looks of the family that seemed reluctant to part with him.
Now the bruises on Yan Qin’s body had almost completely healed, and the ones on his face were so light they could barely be seen.
Catching sight of his old lover’s delicate younger face, Lin Sui’s mood improved a lot.
The moment Yan Qin saw Lin Sui, his heart subconsciously tightened, and he silently lowered his head towards him.
These past few days, he’d gone to the hospital to see his mother.
His mother was still saying in the same place as before, and her treatment also continued as it had before.
He couldn’t understand what Lin Sui was thinking, so he could only wait and see.
The first day Lin Sui left, he was very uneasy.
He originally thought he would be put on display and paraded around all kinds of gatherings, being unrestrainedly humiliated in the same way Yan Zhou used to do.
But four days passed, and it seemed like Lin Sui had forgotten about him.
The servants here didn’t criticise or even look down on him in the same way they did at the Yan family, each and every one was responsible and diligent, never showing and unnecessary expressions, addressing him as ‘young master’ when inviting him to eat as if under the illusion that he was the owner of the house.
He couldn’t help but look for someone and ask whether he needed to do anything, and that person replied in fear and trepidation that he should just rest.
He still asked if he needed to serve, causing him to be silent for a good while.
He thought that this might be Lin Sui’s trap, to show him how much better it was to be his dog than to be a human being.
Lin Sui went upstairs, and waved at Yan Qin.
Lin Sui passed the gift box in his hands in front of Yan Qin, indicating that he should open it.
Yan Qin untied the silk ribbon tied around the box, finding thin chains lying quietly inside.
This was undoubtedly a matching pair of jewellery.
There was a necklace and a chain bracelet at each end, interwoven in the centre by their long silver chains.
A small pendant hung from the bottom of the necklace, with a character engraved onto one face.
“I drew this myself, it seems that you really like it.”
Yan Qin’s clearly didn’t have any kind of expression on his face, but Lin Sui said he liked it, so he did.
“I’ll help you put it on.”
Lin Sui’s eyes carried a beautiful glint.
Yan Qin obediently lowered his head, but the hands hanging by his sides quietly tightened.
The silver pendant was tucked into his neck, producing a cold sensation against his skin, but what caused Yan Qin’s teeth to become even colder4 was Lin Sui’s fingers, which were lightly stroking against his neck like thin, snow white blades.
It seemed like he would slice open his throat in the next moment, then recklessly trample him into the mud.
A strange feeling emerged under the skin on the side of his neck, both freezing cold and burning hot, as if the thoughts of the perverse, fickle young master in front of him were materialised, meddling with his fate.
Lin Sui admired it for a bit, very satisfied: “Not bad.”
“Help me put it on too.”
Lin Sui smiled, and extended his wrist towards Yan Qin.
The links of the bracelet were interlocked together, and it was adorned with an elaborate silver plate with the character ‘藺’, Lin, engraved on it.
A fickle beauty with an excellent appearance, even his contempt was exactly like kindness, making even unwilling people pretend to perfectly willing to become objects in the palm of his hand.
