Chapter 74 – Getting on the Hot Search Again (25.1)
Qiu Yuqin was full of disbelief. He looked back and forth between Qiu Jin and Xiang Xi. Eventually, his eyes settled on Qiu Jin’s face: “Xiang Xi, he, you two…”
Didn’t Xiang Xi hate Qiu Jin to death before? Why was he taking the initiative to talk to Qiu Jin now?
Qiu Jin was still stunned and also did not understand what was going on: “I also don’t know what happened.”
Qiu Yuqin lowered his voice: “Did something happen while you two were recording the variety show?”
Qiu Jin said: “Maybe he realized that I am a good person?”
Qiu Yuqin: “…”
Although Qiu Jin didn’t know the reason why, it was still good news that the other person was not looking at him with hostile eyes.

Qiu Jin’s mood also lightened by a few degrees.
“By the way, you asked me to look into Xu Ziyu before. I found out something interesting.”
“It has something to do with old Mr. Jiang,” Qiu Yuqin lowered his voice, “It turns out that Jiang Ming was called Xu Ziyu before he was brought back.”
“What?!” Qiu Jin gasped and widened his eyes in disbelief.
“I didn’t expect it either. It is said that Jiang Ming had a bad past. Jiang Feihong seems to want to hide this and has not disclosed it to the public.”
Qiu Jin’s face instantly turned pale.
It’s over. It’s over. Jiang Ming is Xu Ziyu. And he was so stupid as to want to act opposite the other man. Did he hate his life for being too long or something?
“What’s wrong with you? Why are you so surprised?” Qiu Yuqin patted him on the shoulder. Was his younger brother all right?
“Ah? It’s okay, it’s okay,” Qiu Jin came back to his senses and frenetically covered up his panic. “I was just a bit shocked. That’s all.”
“That can’t be. Have you encountered some problem perhaps?” Qiu Yuqin became worried. “Is it related to Jiang Ming? Did he bully you?”
“Not really… that’s it,” Qiu Jin organized his words, and chose a compromising way to vocalize it, “I had a dream that a person named Xu Ziyu did some bad things to me.”
“It’s fine if it’s just a dream,” Qiu Yuqin breathed a sigh of relief, but immediately frowned, “But why did you dream about him for no rhyme or reason? Were the two of you acquainted before?”
Qiu Jin shook his head: “No, we don’t know each other. I’m probably over thinking it. Don’t worry. I’ll be careful.”
Qiu Yuqin nodded: “Although I haven’t heard any bad news about Jiang Ming, it’s good to pay more attention and be prepared.”
Indeed. After Qiu Jin transmigrated over, he didn’t hear any bad news about Jiang Ming. Could it be that Jiang Ming suddenly changed his personality like Qiu Jin?
Moreover, why has Jiang Ming’s career path completely changed in this world? He went from an underworld boss to a movie star? Wasn’t it too big of a jump?
Qiu Jin’s head was a mess. He shook his head. It’s useless no matter how much he churned his gears over this matter. Counter soldiers with arms, and counter water with an earth weir*.

At this moment, there was a cacophony of noises coming from the front door. It turned out that the protagonist of the event had arrived this time. Jiang Ming, dressed in a suit and leather shoes, walked in with Jiang Feihong. There were lots of people surrounding them.

Qiu Jin retracted his gaze and saw a middle-aged man with a potbelly approaching. At first, Qiu Jin thought that the other party was looking for someone else and didn’t pay much attention to him, but the man got closer and closer, and finally stopped directly in front of Qiu Jin with a smile on his face.
The other party also took the initiative to reach out his hand and said: “I finally get to see you in person.”
Qiu Jin replied: “Greetings to you*?”
[*T/N: QJ used polite speech.]
The man then said: “You’re even better looking in person than in video! My wife is your fan. Can we take a picture together?”
Qiu Jin was still in a bewildered daze after taking the picture. While he was still dumbfounded, Qiu Yuqin had already identified the other person. Wasn’t this Yi Xiao, the CEO of the Xinyi Food Corporation?
With assets exceeding ten billion, he was the kind of big shot who could be at the top of the entrepreneurs club. This kind of person actually took the initiative to say hello to Qiu Jin?
Qiu Yuqin said: “Do you know my younger brother?”
Yi Xiao only reacted when he saw Qiu Yuqin: “Yo, President Qiu Jr. So it turns out that Qiu Jin is your younger brother. Your family member is so good. Why didn’t you tell me earlier, ah!”
