Shi Qian took a deep breath and said slowly, “Song Yan, when I was young, I really liked to follow you around like a little tail.
I’m really grateful to you for giving me such a happy childhood.”

Song Yan shook his head painfully at these words.
“Qian Qian, stop.”

“No! Song Yan, let me finish.
After you appeared, I also asked myself what my feelings for you were.
I realized that it was not love.
If I hadn’t married, I wouldn’t have been with you.”

“Qian Qian, are these your true feelings?”

“Yes! It’s all from my heart, Song Yan.
I’m really sorry.”

“No, you don’t have to apologize to me.” Song Yan choked.
“You didn’t do anything wrong.”

“Song Yan, are you okay?”

“I’m fine.
I still have something on.
I’ll hang up first.” Song Yan immediately hung up.

He got up and went to the cabinet.
He took out a bottle of red wine, opened it, and poured it down his throat.

He drank half of it before his body slid to the ground.

His phone beeped.
He reached for it.

The bottle fell to the floor, and bright red liquid gurgled out.

The message was from his mother.

He opened the message and Madam Song’s voice immediately sounded.

“Song Yan, your father has already told Lin Shiming about your research results.
It just so happens that there’s no hope of his company going public.
Instead, a portion of the money raised can be used for another investment.
He promised to take out thirty million to support your career.”

Song Yan suddenly laughed when he heard these words.

His smile was infinitely bitter.

Then, the prompt for the next message sounded.

“This time, Lin Shiming agreed to give you thirty million because of Qinghe.
If she hadn’t taken the initiative to admit that she liked you and that she was dating you, Lin Shiming wouldn’t have agreed to give you thirty million.”

Song Yan secretly tightened his grip on his phone.
His arms were trembling from excitement.

Another notification popped up.

“Stop thinking about Shi Qian.
Her mother and Lin Shiming are divorced.
The Lin family business has nothing to do with Shi Qian.”

“Song Yan, Lin Qinghe is devoted to you.
Mom feels that she’s no worse than Shi Qian! She’s the apple of Lin Shiming’s eye.
If you marry Lin Qinghe, the Lin family’s business will be yours in the future.”

“Think about it.
When you were overseas, you were ostracized and suppressed.
If you don’t want to be choked by capital and let the results of your research over the past few years be snatched away again, you’ll agree to date Lin Qinghe and get the Lin family’s funding!”

“Lin Shiming said that he can invest more in the future.
If you want to make a name for yourself with your own strength, you have to make some sacrifices.
Your father and I are not businessmen and can’t provide you with so much financial help.
Lin Qinghe went to the capital to look for you.
Go to Cloud City with her.
She will accompany you overseas and give you the money.”

Song Yan smiled bitterly at these words.

He didn’t care about dreams or research results now!

So what if he was successful now!

All he had done was stand in front of the girl he liked while he listened to her say how outstanding her man was!

The light he possessed would also illuminate her figure!

What was the point of all this now?

Song Yan threw the phone aside, picked up the bottle on the ground, and poured the rest of the wine into his mouth.

Suddenly the doorbell rang.

Song Yan staggered as he went to open the door.
