Chen Wushen’s anger caused his beard to go askew. You think it’s your granddaughter’s car just because she said it was? But he knew that quarrelling was of no use, so he simply spoke faintly: “Jinpeng, whose car is this?”
“Of course it’s mine, I even have the car key!” Chen Jinpeng replied.
“Woah, how did I lose a key, quickly give it back to me!” Jin Beibei said as she stuck out her hand.
“How mysterious…….” Chen Jinpeng was stunned speechless. This Jin Beibei still dared to lie through her teeth? Saying that she lost a key? He suppressed his rising anger and said: “Jin Beibei, let’s first not speak about the issue on keys, this car is mine. In the café the other day, you switched my key, don’t think I don’t know!”
“Grandpa, Grandpa Chen, look at the large words on the car, it reads ‘Noveau Riche Jin Beibei’s Car’.” When everyone drew near, Jin Beibei spoke righteously and pointed at the words on the car.

“Chen Wushen, what other words need to be said? Look at what a little swindler your grandson is!” Golden-Haired Lion King gave Chen Wushen a ridiculing look.
Chen Wushen creased his brows and gave Chen Jinpeng a quick glance: “What’s the matter with the words pasted on the car?”
“Jin Beibei, let us, who know what’s really going on, not speak any secret words. You are the one who stole my car and you were the one who stuck on these words and said it was your car. I want to let you know that I have the motor vehicle license with the car number and engine number, how about we verify it?” Chen Jinpeng had this trump card in hand, so he wasn’t scared of Jin Beibei. Even if you paste something onto the car, that doesn’t mean it’s yours.
“Nonsense! If I stuck it on, then why didn’t you take it off?” Jin Beibei questioned.
“Isn’t this because I had no time to rip it off because you came too quickly?” Chen Jinpeng was dumbfounded.
“See, you’ve finally admitted to stealing.” Jin Beibei said as she nodded.
“What did I admit to doing?” Chen Jinpeng’s complexion changed: “Don’t speak irresponsibly!”
“You said that I came too quickly so you had no time to rip it off. Doesn’t this prove that the car is mine and you, who stole it away, didn’t have enough time to remove the evidence?” Jin Beibei deliberately twisted his words and made it into a plausible explanation.
“Jinpeng, take out the motor vehicle license.” Chen Wushen didn’t want to see them senselessly quarrel, so he instructed Chen Jinpeng to do this.
“Now that things have come to this, what other words do you have to say?” Chen Jinpeng took out his motor vehicle license. This was his trump card, his ace-in-hole.
“Golden-Haired Lion King, take a look for yourself.” Chen Wushen took the motor vehicle license, looked at it, then went to hand it over to Golden-Haired Lion King.
Golden-Haired Lion King waved it away: “I’m unable to read such small words, but what I can read is that this car has words showing that it’s my granddaughter’s car, so it’s my granddaughter’s car!”
“Geh!” Chen Jinpeng stood stunned. He didn’t expect that the older one was also as unreasonable as the younger one. After he exposed his trump card, he was waiting for Golden-Haired Lion King and Jin Beibei to wordlessly admit defeat, but he didn’t think it would be like this!
“You……” Chen Wushen seethed with anger. He deeply sucked in several mouthfuls of air before pointing at Golden-Haired Lion King and furiously shouting: “Golden-Haired Lion King, I can see that you don’t want to be reasonable, am I right?”
“Since you say I’m being unreasonable, then I shall be unreasonable!” Golden-Haired Lion King didn’t think that he was being disgraceful. Instead, he thought that it was glorious as he complacently said: “Unreasonable, infuriating you, infuriating a money!”
“Good, good, very GOOD!” Chen Wushen nearly went berserk on the spot. His entire body trembled with rage: “Golden-Haired Lion King, I’m telling you now that even if others fear you, I don’t fear you! Our strength is about the same; if we really start fighting, the one who’ll emerge victorious is unclear!”
“Even if you don’t fear me, your grandson is afraid of me! If he has the guts to drive this car out and I see it, I’ll hack him, this car thief, to death with my blade!” Golden-Haired Lion King indifferently stated.
“You……I……” Chen Wushen suddenly recalled the matter of Golden-Haired Lion King hacking the son of an official to death because he sexually harassed Jin Beibei. It made him abruptly start quivering from head to toe! Chen Jinkun had died already, leaving Chen Jinpeng as his only grandson left. If this old lunatic really split Chen Jinpeng in half because of this matter, then it’d be too late for him to even cry! Although he could also strike Jin Beibei dead, Chen Clan would have no one to lead it in the future!
Thinking up to here, Chen Wushen instantly wilted: “Golden-Haired Lion King, you’re ruthless; I give up! Little Peng didn’t steal the car, he was only cracking a joke with Jin Beibei. You all can drive the car away!”
“That’s about how it should be. I heard that your grandson also stole my granddaughter’s car key and secretly placed the car in his home, this situation……” Golden-Haired Lion King smiled with his eyes squinting at Chen Wushen.
“Jinpeng, return the key to Jin Beibei, then transfer the vehicle ownership under her name!” Chen Wushen sullenly uttered.
“That’s fantastic, knowing wrongs and being able to better it is the greatest virtue. Beibei, drive us out.” Golden-Haired Lion King self-satisfiedly nodded.
The four people boarded the Panamera and drove out of the Chen Clan courtyard. The Wrangler1 started up by a Jin Clan disciple, then started following behind in the distance.
As soon as they left, Chen Jinpeng spoke in an aggrieved tone: “Grandpa, how can we just swallow this anger?”
“You little brat, did you have nothing else to do except annoy Jin Beibei? Don’t you know her grandfather is Golden-Haired Lion King? Don’t you know that fellow’s an old lunatic?” Chen Wushen’s fury that had no place to be vented just happened to bump into Chen Jinpeng.
“I……we’re on the right side of this matter, they’re being unreasonable.” Chen Jinpeng said innocently.
“Who made you not rip off the words on the car? Who can be blamed? I’m going to be angered to death!” Chen Wushen snorted and continued: “Bear in mind these words: in the future, don’t fight a battle that you aren’t certain of victory. That old fellow isn’t reasonable, you should’ve learned this from the clash this time. Distance yourself a bit from them later on!”
“I understand……” Chen Jinpeng hastily nodded while feeling greatly depressed.
“All right, how goes the situation between you and Shen Jingxuan?” Chen Wushen turned his head toward Chen Jinpeng and asked.
“It’s still like that. Before I wanted taker her out for a spin in the wind, but the car disappeared so I wasn’t able to……” Chen Jinpeng carefully replied.
“Can you not just buy another car? Take care of her as soon as possible, once we have Shen Clan’s support, we won’t need to fear his Jin Clan or whatever!” Chen Wushen snorted and quickly walked away, leaving behind an extremely depressed Chen Jinpeng.
He originally thought that once he became Chen Clan’s eldest young master, everything would start going the way he wanted it to. But who would have thought that just as he purchased his car, it would be snatched away by Jin Beibei!
He let out a sigh, then turned around to go into his home. He planned to take the exam first and after school dismissal, he would go buy another car.
Jin Beibei drove out of Chen Clan with Old Master Jin sitting right next to her, and Xiao Chen and Cheng Mengying sitting in the back row.
Before they were hastily leaving so she didn’t feel anything, but now that they were riding for a while, Cheng Mengying suddenly realized that she and Xiao Chen were actually sitting together! This made her heart jump for some inexplicable reason, but she still turned her head to the side and rolled her eyes at Xiao Chen: “Hey, move away a bit from this young lady, it’s hot!”
“Then I’ll turn on the air conditioning.” Jin Beibei remarked.
“Do you want to die!” Cheng Mengying was only casually speaking. It would soon be autumn, how could it be so hot?
“Then why do you want brother-in-law to move a bit away from you? You don’t like brother-in-law?” Jin Beibei smilingly questioned.
“I……” Cheng Mengying wanted say ‘I don’t like him’, but she feared that doing so would harm Xiao Chen’s self-respect. And if she said ‘I like him’, she was afraid of raising his hopes. So after she said ‘I’, the words became stuck in her throat.
“Haha, boy, you’re called Xiao Chen, right?” At this time Golden-Haired Lion King turned his head and looked at Xiao Chen with a smile that wasn’t like a smile: “The one beside you is your fiancée?”
“(Sweats) Old Master Jin, you shouldn’t joke around, I’m currently Cheng Mengying’s manservant….” Xiao Chen’s complexion reddened: “Beibei’s deliberately creating trouble by calling me brother-in-law, but she’s actually just speaking playfully.”
“No, I really think highly of you, brother-in-law!” Jin Beibei seemed wild with joy when it came to the topic of Xiao Chen and stars glittered in her eyes: “Grandpa, you may not know this, but brother-in-law is really awesome, like a Transformer2! He’s the one who found my car!”
“Transformer?” Golden-Haired Lion King stared blankly: “You can transform? Are you an Autobot or Decepticon?”

“Pfft……” Xiao Chen didn’t expect that Old Master Jin was even more amusing than Jin Beibei: “That’s just Beibei’s thoughtless nickname; if I could transform, how could I be driven out of Xiao Clan3!”
“Oh, I was thinking that you were an Autobot and that was the reason why you could induce Beibei’s car! Similar4!” Golden-Haired Lion King teased.
“My perception’s just a bit better than an average person’s. You should also know that I’m a good-for-nothing, so I placed my energy on other aspects.” Xiao Chen was aware that he couldn’t speak irresponsibly about this matter, so he could only explain it away like this. Old Master Jin was an experienced person and wasn’t so easy to fool.
Sure enough, Golden-Haired Lion King’s eyes slightly narrowed and he sized Xiao Chen up. It was unknown as to what he was thinking, but after a moment, he didn’t speak any further with Xiao Chen and instead turned to look at Jin Beibei: “Beibei, do you really think highly of this kid?”
“Brother-in-law’s really impressive!” Jin Beibei nodded.
“Hehe, Beibei, have you eaten lunch? Find a place and grandpa will treat you all to a meal?” Old Master Jin not pressing this topic and instead changing it to eating made Xiao Chen let out a sigh of relief!
He was afraid that Golden-Haired Lion King would pester on about how he searched for the car and at that time, it wouldn’t be so easy to muddle through! After all, the the subject of Spiritual Consciousness was quite profound. Some people were strong while others were weak, with this as the premise, it wasn’t easy for people to be skeptical, but Xiao Chen only feared that too many rumors would become a fact5.
“Not yet, we all were just about to go eat then discovered that the car disappeared.” Jin Beibei answered: “I wanna eat charcoal grill barbecue!”
“Okay, we’ll eat charcoal grill barbecue!” Golden-Haired Lion King obviously spoiled Jin Beibei a lot. Whatever Jin Beibei wanted to eat, he wouldn’t even think before agreeing.
“But cousin Mengying is sensitive to heat, so how about I send cousin Mengying back to school?” Jin Beibei interjected.
“Hmph, this young lady is cold!” Cheng Mengying angrily retorted: “Stupid Beibei, are you doing this on purpose?”
“Haha!” Jin Beibei chortled.
“That’s right, Beibei, for what reason did you steal Chen Jinpeng’s car?” Golden-Haired Lion King recalled the reason why he’s come this time. Before he was only pretending not to understand, showing off a rude and unreasonable appearance, but he was actually quite insightful.

- TLN: I was very close to translating this line as ‘how could I be driven out of my clan’, but I realized the difference between ‘Xiao Clan’ and ‘my clan’, how the former is speaking about it like it doesn’t really matter to him while the latter means he’s bitter about being driven out. ↩
- TLN: It’s kind of hard to translate this phrase without expanding it into a damn sentence. It’s basically him trying to say that an Autobot is a vehicle and so is a car, so an Autobot is able to induce where the car is because they’re similar. ↩
