The middle-aged man known as the Chief Of Police approached the small police officer who was taking the statement, and the two spoke in Japanese. Then he walked up to Liang Zhe with a smile on his face: “Mr. Liang, your friend just witnessed an assault.”
Liang Zhe’s face was much softer when he heard that. He nodded his head to the police chief and thanked him, then under the astonished eyes of everyone, he slowly walked to the transcript table and sat down next to Li Zheng with a blank expression.
The young policeman was at a loss for words and looked at the inspector with pleading eyes.
The police inspector obviously didn’t expect Liang Zhe to do this, “Mr. Liang, this is the transcription desk, if you don’t want to go to my office, please have a seat.”
Before Liang Zhe replied, the butler smiled and said, “Mr. Inoue, Mr. Liang likes to sit like this, so you can let him sit. The child is a bit headstrong, please bear with me.”
The man felt helpless, this was the person whom the vice-chairman of the Mitsui Foundation personally called him to entertain. If he was willing, he was allowed to sit down.
Inoue took a seat and waved his hand to indicate that the police officers in the hall need not worry about them.
Li Zheng took a strange look at Liang Zhe, who was sitting beside him as still as a clay statue and couldn’t help but feel a little amused. Every time he thought Liang Zhe didn’t like or reject him, he would lean in close again.
What a strange person.
The foreigner obviously noticed the situation on Li Zheng’s side, and when he saw that the Japanese police were being polite to the Chinese, he became even more agitated.
“I want to contact the American Embassy in Japan! You cannot harbor the Chinese!”
Li Zheng’s face was pale, and he immediately picked up the phone and dialed Daniel’s number.
The phone beeped twice and then was connected, “Hello, this is Daniel from Pfizer.”
Daniel’s colloquial American voice reached Li Zheng’s ears through the telephone receiver.
“Daniel, it’s me, Li Zheng.”
There was the sound of a glass of water being put down on the table, and Daniel’s voice immediately became enthusiastic, “Hello, Li, I didn’t expect you to call me. I saw the news about you in Tokyo, an original drug! You’re really a genius, I think we’ll be able to work together again soon.”
Daniel’s industry sense was much sharper than David’s, Li Zheng really felt that David had stepped on a dog in his last life.
Li Zheng laughed bitterly, “Daniel, I am here to ask for your help this time.”
Daniel was obviously stunned, but he immediately reacted, “Li, you’re too kind. If there’s anything I can do to help, just say so.”
If the foreigner really called the US Embassy in Japan, the matter would really be big trouble.
He quickly recounted what had just happened.
There was silence from Daniel’s side, “Li, is that Pfizer employee okay?”
“Don’t worry, it’s just a cut on the head, it’s a flesh wound.” Before getting into the police car, Li Zheng asked the medical staff in the ambulance about the injured person’s condition. The human head had many blood vessels, and the amount of bleeding from a broken wound looked very scary, but as long as the bleeding was stopped in time, there wouldn’t be any after-effects.
Daniel was obviously relieved to hear, “In that case, Li, you can put that employee on the phone. If they’re really a Pfizer employee, they’d like to sell me on it.”
“Thank you very much.”
On the other side, the foreigner was even more dissatisfied with the Japanese police when he saw that Li Zheng was constantly on the phone, “I want to make a call too, why can he make a call!”
The Japanese police were sweating profusely, but the incident involved three parties, and they didn’t want to make a big deal out of it until they were told to.
The foreigner was obviously not so patient, as he took two steps at a time, rushed to a telephone, and picked up the microphone to dial the number.
“Mr. Daniel Watson would like to speak to you, sir.” Li Zheng said loudly to the foreigner.
The foreigner felt like he had been punched.
Daniel Watson, of course, he knew the name. Unlike Johnny Brown, Daniel Watson had much more prestige among Pfizer’s Asian employees. He was the former director of Pfizer’s Asian business unit and now the executive vice president of Pfizer Asia.
This was their top boss, the man who held the glory and shame of their workplace.
“You …… are kidding. Don’t think you can scare me with Mr. Watson.”
“You can come and listen to Daniel’s voice, you’ve heard it before.”
The foreigner hesitated but put the phone down. He quickly walked over to Li Zheng, “If it isn’t Mr. Watson, I won’t let you go.”
Li Zheng shrugged his shoulders and handed him the phone.
“Hello, this is Daniel Watson.”
“Mr. Watson …… “The moment the foreigner heard Daniel’s voice, the look on his face became wonder-filled, he didn’t expect that this Chinese teenager actually knew Mr. Daniel.
Thinking of his own behavior with his companion, he felt a little guilty.
“Yes, the doctor said it’s nothing serious, just a cut on the head. Oh, that’s very generous of you. Thank you, I thank you for him. Yes, of course, it’s just a little misunderstanding. No, no, I won’t bother the embassy. Thank you again.”
The foreigner was all smiles and didn’t look the least bit thunderstruck.
“Okay, I’ll give the phone to Mr. Li Zheng.” The foreigner handed the phone to Li Zheng with a smile on his face, “I’m sorry sir, I was just overwhelmed by what happened to my companion, I apologize.”
“I can understand.” Of course, Li Zheng was happy to take the step.
“Li, I can take care of the injury, but I can’t do anything about the order. You know, from Pfizer’s standpoint, I can’t give the order to a factory that injures Pfizer employees, even if we ourselves are at fault.” Daniel said over the phone.
Li Zheng nodded, “I’m not an unreasonable person.”
After exchanging a few pleasantries with Daniel, he hung up the phone.
The foreigner had already run to the front to dismiss the case, and Daniel added his carrot and stick to the phone, first cordially greeting the injured, and generously asking the man to report the incident as a work-related injury. He also said that he already knew that they did, and immediately made the foreigners stop calling the embassy.
“I guess I don’t have to make a statement now.” Li Zheng smilingly looked at the small police officer sitting opposite him.
The small police officer nodded stunned.
The man had dropped the case, so what was the point of taking a statement.
Li Zheng smiled and got up. He patted Chen Anbang’s shoulder, signaling that he could leave.
Chen Anbang, who was obviously still out of the loop, looked at Li Zheng with a strange look in his eyes, who exactly was this young man? First, he represented Hong Kong University to give an academic presentation in front of all the biology bulls in Asia, then he intuitively announced the birth of an original drug at the conference, and now he had so easily broken this crisis of the Factory director.
Maybe …… he really could buy an advanced drug production line for China!
Thinking of this, Chen Anbang’s mood became excited.
He held Li Zheng’s hand tightly, “Thank you, thank you very much.” Factory Director Qian had come to Tokyo as a replacement for Professor Zhou, if he really caused a diplomatic incident, their group might have become sinners of the motherland.
Li Zheng shook his head, he wanted to go and pat Chen Anbang’s hand, but he suddenly found his hand being tugged. The cold touch from his hand caused him to turn his head to look at Liang Zhe.
He saw that Liang Zhe had already stood beside him at some point, his head lowered and his right hand tightly gripping Li Zheng’s hand, making it hard to see his expression.
When Li Zheng tried to move his hand, Liang Zhe’s grip tightened even more.
He had no choice but to turn around and smile at Chen Anbang, “Mr. Chen is very polite, we are all Chinese, so we should naturally help each other. Let’s go back quickly, Professor Meng’s side may be anxious.”
Chen Anbang immediately nodded his head, and he took a strange look at the silent young man beside Li Zheng. Strange, why was the young man’s face so red?
After Chen Anbang’s hand was loosened, Liang Zhe’s hand loosened as well.
Butler Fang said goodbye to the police chief and came out to this scene, and he smiled with great relief that his young master had finally learned to take the initiative to make friends with people.
He didn’t find anything unusual about the way Liang Zhe made friends. His young master’s heart had been closed for so long, and it was hard to make friends, so the expression would naturally be intense.
He jogged two steps and said smilingly in Li Zheng’s ear, “Mr. Li Zheng, don’t be mad at Mr. Liang. He wanted to get along with you but was just a little shy. He hung up the phone when he got nervous.”
The corners of Li Zheng’s mouth twitched, why did he feel that Butler Fang’s words were strange?
But …… shy?
He turned to look at Liang Zhe’s expressionless face, his suit, and the inherent nobility of the son of a noble family, which looked quite overbearing to outsiders.
Was he really shy?
A trace of curiosity flashed in Li Zheng’s eyes, and he hesitated for a moment, he lifted his finger slightly and poking Liang Zhe on the cheek. This was already an extremely intimate gesture, and only extremely close friends would joke like this.
It was hard, and it felt good to the touch.
Liang Zhe’s body became stiff and his expression remained unchanged, but Li Zheng noticed with amusement that he was walking stiffly.
It seemed that he was really shy.
“Mr. Chen is it, let’s go ride in the front car together and let the two young people go together.” Butler Fang smilingly walked up to Chen Anbang and said.
Chen Anbang was startled. He looked at the two limousines in front of him and thought to himself, “Let alone four people, two more can fit in this one car.”
But when he saw Butler Fang’s smile, he swallowed his words and nodded his head.
Liang Zhe and Li Zheng were the only two people in the car, and they were sitting face to face.
Seeing that Liang Zhe kept his body straight and didn’t open his mouth, Li Zheng was tired for him.
“What are you doing in Tokyo?” He was the first to break the silence.
Liang Zhe’s eyes flickered, but he still said honestly, “Looking for you.”
“Looking for me?” Li Zheng was dumb, “Nothing else?” Did he really come all the way here to find him?
Liang Zhe shook his head.
Li Zheng puffed out a laugh as he said in amusement, “You didn’t come all the way over here just because I hung up on you, did you?”
Liang Zhe was silent for two seconds and nodded his head.
There was a strange silence in the car, and Li Zheng opened his mouth wide, unable to speak for a long time. In his last life, he was busy reading books and taking exams before he was twenty, from China to Stanford, and from undergraduate to doctoral student, and he spent most of his time in the lab after he turned twenty.
Family, friendship, love.
Before he graduated from Stanford, his old man died of myocardial infarction on the way to the hospital. As for his mother, she divorced the old man when he was very young and only saw him once or twice a year.
Friendship, he had a good relationship with his team and David. Well, he admitted that these friendships were laced with interest.
As for love, that was even less so. It wasn’t that the older professors hadn’t introduced him to anyone, but what woman could stand to have her boyfriend in the lab 360 days in a year. Later there was even a rumor that Li Zheng liked men.
It was the same with the other. As long as they got along, he didn’t care about gender. But unfortunately, he hadn’t met any human who could make his heart beat.
In a word, Li Zheng had achieved remarkable achievements in his last life, but he was a complete loser in terms of love.
Therefore, he was deeply shocked to hear that Liang Zhe had taken a special flight to come here just because he hung up the phone. There was no interest between them, and even if there was, they were just bothering each other. Liang Zhe was willing to do so, so he must have treasured the friendship with him.
Li Zheng remembered the time when Liang Zhe insisted on taking his medicine in the police station, and signed the loan contract without even thinking about it in the restaurant, and lent his clothes to him in the back garden of the Governor’s residence …… probably because his clothes were dirty.
Thinking of how he had once or twice used his own mean heart to judge a gentleman, Li Zheng couldn’t help but feel a little ashamed.
He suddenly raised his hand and patted Liang Zhe’s shoulder, “From now on, we’ll be good friends. You don’t have to be polite to me!”
Liang Zhe ……
Liang Zhe took out the production line purchase contract from the drawer of the car and handed it to Li Zheng.
He was stunned when he opened the first page.
In the purchase and sale contract between Scotia and Keady, Scotia sold the latest drug production line to Keady, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Liang Group. Not only that, but also a complete set of tablet presses, filling machines, and capsule machines.
