Chapter 329: Brothers Meeting
It was as if all the danger was an illusion for Su Chong and the others.
Everyone relaxed and ate.
After Zhou Heng ate some, he said, “I’ll go to the toilet.”
There was no danger, and Su Chong and the others were not worried. There were so many people in Jinghong Restaurant.
Zhou Heng left the dining table and went downstairs. Soon, he saw Jin Wu waiting for him. He took a deep breath and said, “Let’s go. Take me to him.”
Unable to hide it, he calmed down instead.
If Zhou Zhi wanted to see him, it was impossible for him not to come. The current him did not have the ability to escape unscathed after angering Zhou Zhi. Angering him would undoubtedly put the Su family in danger. He could not and could not do that.
Jin Wu glanced at Zhou Heng. His gaze landed on Zhou Heng’s legs and moved away indifferently. He said calmly, “Eldest Young Master, please.”
Jin Wu brought Zhou Heng into a room and pushed open the side door. Zhou Heng saw Zhou Zhi waiting at the table.
Zhou Zhi looked at him. The two brothers looked at each other. Zhou Heng had mixed feelings. It was as if he had a thousand words, but also as if he had nothing to say.
Jin Wu closed the door, leaving only Zhou Heng and Zhou Zhi in the room.
Zhou Zhi said calmly.
Zhou Heng walked to the table in front of Zhou Zhi and sat down. He looked at Zhou Zhi and opened his mouth before saying, “Ah Zhi, you still recognized me.”
He was brought out of the palace by Old Wu. Before he came to the Southern Mountain Village, Old Wu had treated his legs and cured him of the poison. He had even modified his bones and facial features so that he did not look like Zhou Zhi at all. However, Zhou Zhi still recognized him.
Zhou Zhi picked up a cup of tea and lowered his eyes. He took a small sip of tea and said calmly, “You’ve been living well all these years.”
‘New novel ?hapters are published on novelnext.cOm.’,
It was so good that when he saw him, he felt a sharp pain in his eyes and heart. Everywhere hurt.
He lowered his eyes and hid all his emotions. There was no emotion on his face. He was really cold. Zhou Heng could not understand anything when he was like this. He was in a daze…
The dangers in the palace were too far away from him. Now that Zhou Zhi was in front of him, his empty legs silently reminded him that those dangers had never been far away. He only felt this way because he was the child who was loved.
Zhou Heng choked. “Ah Zhi, I’m sorry…”
Zhou Zhi’s lips curled up slightly as if he was mocking himself. “Why are you sorry? Did you instigate the person who plotted against me?”
Zhou Heng was speechless. Of course not.
Zhou Zhi was covered in thorns and was terrifyingly cold. Zhou Heng took a deep breath and said, “Ah Zhi, if you want my life, then come at me. Don’t implicate the others. They’re innocent.”
Zhou Zhi knew his identity. No one could stop him from doing anything. Zhou Heng only hoped that he would not implicate the Su family.
Zhou Zhi chuckled. He looked up at Zhou Heng. His deep eyes were on Zhou Heng as he said lightly, “Brother, I won’t take your life. Really, I’m not interested in you like this at all. However, you’re really too similar to Mother. Even if I didn’t do anything, you still think that I’ll do something. This puts me in a difficult position. If I don’t do anything, I’ll be letting you down.”
After saying that, Zhou Zhi smiled and looked at Zhou Heng calmly.
“Ah Zhi, I believe you.”
Zhou Heng looked at Zhou Zhi and said slowly, regardless of whether Zhou Zhi was sincere or not, he believed him.
They were from the same mother. They should have been brothers in arms.
Zhou Heng had mixed feelings. He felt guilty facing Zhou Zhi, but there were many things between them. This could not be changed no matter what.
“A few years ago, I found traces of Dr. Wu, but at that time, you were no longer by his side. Dr. Wu was not afraid of imperial power. He was only responsible for treating you. At that time, I thought that you might have a very unhappy life.”
Zhou Zhi looked at Zhou Heng and spoke indifferently.
Zhou Heng listened quietly. He had never suffered. When he was with Old Wu, although the old man was heartless, he was actually very attentive. When he arrived at the Southern Mountain Village, Su Xiaolu’s family treated him even better.
All this while, what kind of life was Zhou Zhi leading?
Zhou Heng lowered his eyes and gulped. “I’m sorry.”
“Heh… You don’t have to apologize. You didn’t let me down.”
Zhou Zhi sneered. Then, he narrowed his eyes and said in a cold voice, “I called you here to tell you that if you want to take back your identity, you have to rely on your ability. I won’t kill you. Of course, I won’t let you win. I will fight for what I want. Similarly, you have to fight for what you want.”
‘Follow current novels on No v elBin.’,
“Although you’ve changed your name, it doesn’t matter if your name is Su Heng or Zhou Heng. It won’t be easy for you to become Zhou Heng again. Don’t hide your strength during the exam. If you’re hiding, you’ll really be nothing.”
Zhou Zhi smiled after saying that. He picked up the teacup and took a small sip of water.
He had said so much. If Zhou Heng could understand, he would naturally know what he meant. If he did not understand, then he could only be just Zhou Heng in his life.
Zhou Heng frowned slightly. He pursed his lips and did not say anything in the end.
Zhou Zhi waved his hand lightly. “You can leave. Fifteen minutes is long enough for a trip to the toilet.”
Zhou Heng looked at Zhou Zhi. There was no eye contact. In the end, he sighed and turned to leave.
Zhou Heng turned around and Zhou Zhi looked at him. Looking at his back, Zhou Zhi smiled and shook his head.
Life was difficult. Zhou Heng, who had grown up in a happy family, was no match for him.
If he did not want him to live, Zhou Heng would not even have the chance to take the exam.
He had always been telling the truth when he said that he did not want to kill him.
The reason why he stopped Zhou Heng from returning to the capital was only because of the woman’s guesses.
He was telling the truth when he said that he had to fight to get his identity back.
The royal family had always been cruel. If Zhou Heng wanted to get his identity back, he had to face the power of the entire capital.
If he knew, he would naturally understand. If he did not… Forget it, there was nothing wrong with being Zhou Heng for the rest of his life.
Zhou Heng came out of the room. He was distracted and was thinking about what Zhou Zhi meant. He slowly went upstairs and Su Chong’s voice came from behind.
“Little Brother Heng, where did you go?”
Su Chong heaved a sigh of relief when he saw that Zhou Heng was fine. He had also gone to the toilet just now, but he did not see Zhou Heng at all. He was shocked and looked around, but he did not see him. Just as he was about to go upstairs to tell Su Hua and the others, he saw Zhou Heng coming out of nowhere and going up the stairs.
Zhou Heng turned to Su Chong and smiled. “It’s fine. I had a stomach ache just now.”
Su Chong frowned slightly, then smiled and said, “It’s good that you’re fine.”
Zhou Heng did not want to say it. No matter how worried Su Chong was, he endured it and did not ask.
Zhou Heng did not notice Su Chong’s expression. He hummed softly and returned to his seat with Su Chong to continue eating.
