When they walked to the front desk and asked, there happened to be a table for two people. Qin Ze said, "Generally, people who eat barbecue come after 10 o'clock in the evening, probably because we came early so we are lucky." If they came here after 10 o'clock, there would be a long queue team.

The waiter turned around and said, "This gentleman is right."

Qin Ze smiled slightly. The waiter hurriedly turned her head, and there seemed to be a blush floating in her ear.

The waiter took the two to find the location, and then took out the menu, "What do you want to order?"

Qin Ze knew that Gong Qingyao had no taboo, so he took the initiative to order, "The drink please serve two cups of yogurt."

"Any other?" the waiter asked.

"No." Qin Ze said.

After the waiter placed the order and then she went down first.

"After eating barbecue, a cup of yogurt is the best." Unlike the politeness to the waiter, Qin Ze gave a touch of gentleness when he spoke to Gong Qingyao.

In fact, Gong Qingyao didn't have much demand for food, but it's okay to have something delicious. After all, who didn't like good food?

While the food was served, Qin Ze answered a phone call. The other party only said a few words butQin Ze's eyebrows immediately became serious, "What's the matter?" "Okay, I'm in City C. I will come back tomorrow and have a look. Please comfort your family members first." After Qin Ze hung up the phone, his face returned to normal, with a hint of smile.

Gong Qingyao took a sip of the lemonade poured by the waiter, and then asked, "What happened?"

Qin Ze originally didn't intend to tell Gong Qingyao, but when Gong Qingyao asked him, he didn't want to lie, so he said, "Something trivial happened on Light of Hope. It's okay. I'll just need to back tomorrow."

Gong Qingyao heard it and said, "Nothing should have happened there." Although the Feng Shui of Mengyuan Community was very poor, but after Gong Qingyao broke the yin formation there, it resumed as original. Although it was not as good as before, it would not be as bad for something to happen.

Qin Ze believed in Gong Qingyao, so suddenly guessed something in his heart, "Just now the construction team said that a worker accidentally fell from the upper floor and broke his legs. At present, his family members are asking for compensation."

"I will go with you tomorrow." Gong Qingyao said, first to see what was going on and second to thank Qin Ze for sending the women, girls and children back to their home.

"Thank you." The smile on Qin Ze's face was even more obvious.

Of course, if there was no Gong Qingyao in this matter, he could also handle it, but now with Gong Qingyao, these things had to be handled more vigorously, maybe she could pull out some things that they couldn't find out.

The barbecue here allowed customers to grill by themselves, or they could order something already cooked by the chefs. Qin Ze ordered half of each. The ingredients were quickly served. The waiter put on a charcoal fire, set the iron grill and then put a few pieces of lard on it.

With the heat of the charcoal fire, Qin Ze melted the lard, and then put mutton on it first. The mutton was cut very thin, no more than three millimeters. Placed on the iron grill, the iron grill could still be seen through the lamb. After the iron grill was full, Qin Ze spread the cheese rice cakes around. The rice cakes were of various colors, and the red mutton was also quite appetizing.

"This rice cake is not sweet. It is soft and delicious." Qin Ze explained.

Gong Qingyao didn't doubt Qin Ze's judgment on food.

While the mutton was done roasting, Qin Ze turned it over to the other side, and then he applied a layer of prepared sauce, which instantly aroused people's taste buds. He put the roasted mutton in Gong Qingyao bowl, "Try it." This grilled mutton had a stronger flavor. Although Gong Qingyao didn't have many expressions, Qin Ze could feel that Gong Qingyao liked this mutton, "If it's delicious, eat more."

"Good." Gong Qingyao said.

After dinner, the two set off to return to the capital.

Gong Qingyao woke up the next day to practice, when she was done, Qin Ze was already waiting under the apartment. The two went to Light of Hope Community. After half a month, the place was completely renewed. The project seemed to almost finish. In the end of the community, several villas were built.

"Next, we plan to do some greening." Qin Ze explained.


Gong Qingyao nodded slightly. She looked around the place where the accident happened, and then went around the community again. She found no suspicious yin energy. There was no problem here, so she could only find the problem from the source, "Where is the injured worker?" Gong Qingyao asked.

"At the hospital." Qin Ze said, "Are you going to see that person?"

"Yes."

Qin Ze immediately called Tian Zhenguo, the person in charge of the project department, "Go and make arrangements."

Tian Zhenguo immediately arranged a vehicle, and then went to the hospital with Qin Ze and Gong Qingyao.

The hospital was not far from the community. Within half an hour, they arrived. The three of them walked to a ward, and Tian Zhenguo stopped, "General Qin, Cao Peng stayed here."

Qin Ze nodded slightly, Tian Zhenguo twisted the doorknob and walked in first.

The ward here was a two-person room, but the other bed was unoccupied, which means that there was only Cao Peng staying alone here. But the ward was obviously not occupied by Cao Peng only, there was also his wife and parents.

Seeing Tian Zhenguo coming in, Cao Peng was about to sit up, but was pushed down by the old woman on the side. Several people stayed in place pretending they hadn't seen them. Tian Zhenguo brought in Qin Ze and Gong Qingyao like this, and no one in the room greeted them for a while.

Walking to Cao Peng's bed, Tian Zhenguo looked at Cao Peng, and then said, "Cao Peng, this is our President Qin."

"Hello President Qin." Cao Peng subconsciously said in respect, and then he looked at Qin Ze. Although the latter was young, his majestic aura was not worse than that of the middle-aged man.

The old woman on the side snorted coldly, "Even if the President comes, Cao Peng must be compensated for his loss."

Qin Ze looked at the old woman and said sincerely, "There was an accident on our construction site, so we must find out what happened." He did not mention compensation.

This old woman was obviously not a very smart person, "What do you mean by this? My son is injured when he works for you, is there any other thing besides this?" She took out her mobile phone and said, "I want to see how the news media will report on this."

Tian Zhenguo said immediately, "The company has never said that Cao Peng will not be compensated."

Qin Ze continued, "The first thing to do is to find out the truth of the accident, not to mention that Cao Peng's current medical expenses are all paid by the company."

Tian Zhenguo added on the side, "Yes, President Qin, we have paid 20,000 yuan in advance for medical expenses."

The old woman took a spit, "Twenty thousand! Are you sending a beggar? My son makes at least one million a year, but now his leg is like this."

Tian Zhenguo on the side took out a list, "Cao Peng is a small worker with a salary of 200 yuan a day, so a full year is calculated as 73,000 yuan." What's more, people were not gods, they could also get sick. Let alone one million, Cao Peng couldn't even make one hundred thousand yuan a year.

Cao Peng's face flushed badly, but he didn't dare to say anything more. His two hundred yuan salary was set because of the foreman's kindness. If not he would only get one hundred fifty a day.

"That's only now. In a few years, my son can make a million." The old woman said.

The old man who had not spoken next to the old woman said at the moment, "The people in my family are right. In the past few years, Cao Peng has not made a million, but it can't be guaranteed that in the next five years or ten years, he won't be able to make that much." The implication was that this compensation must be indispensable.

The old woman immediately sat on the ground and began to throw tantrum, "My poor boy, even if you break your leg, your boss doesn't care about you. It's really a black-hearted company. How will this family live?" The old woman was crying loudly. Soon, many other patients and family members were standing on the door, wanted to see what happened.

Gong Qingyao looked at Cao Peng, "Are you sure you fell off accidentally?"

This sentence stunned everyone present, and a trace of unnaturalness flashed quickly across Cao Peng's face.

The old woman looked at Gong Qingyao. Before, she saw a woman came in but didn't care much. She took a closer look and find that the other party was actually a little girl, but the temperament of this girl was unusual and she didn't know who it was. "Who are you, why do you question us like this?"

Qin Ze said, "This is an important person in our company." But Qin Ze didn't say how important it was.

Tian Zhenguo had been with them today. He saw that Qin Ze’s attitude was a little unusual for Gong Qingyao, but he didn't know who the other party was. When he heard Gong Qingyao's question, a flash of shock flashed in his eyes.

When Qin Ze on the side hear Gong Qingyao speaking, he knew the accident was not that simple.

"Important?" the old woman said.

"Yeah." Qin Ze looked serious.

The old woman immediately accused, "You little girl, surely you don't know the hardships of poor people, Cao Peng is our family's main source of income, so how can we live in the future?"

Gong Qingyao casted a glance at the old woman, and the old woman immediately silenced. The old woman thought strange, this little girl's eyes were so shocking that she seemed to be able to see through her.


Gong Qingyao looked at Cao Peng again, "Are you sure?"

Cao Peng's face flushed, and he almost told the truth. After a while, Cao Peng looked up and said, "I did fall off accidentally."

The old woman was immediately unhappy, she looked at Gong Qingyao, "What do you mean, do you want Cao Peng to admit that he fell off on purpose?"

"Correct." Gong Qingyao said with a firm tone.

The old woman choked. After a while, she said loudly, "What do you mean?" The old woman looked at the crowd outside, "You guys be the judge, who would take the initiative to jump from the fourth floor?"

The onlookers also said, "Yeah, no one will take the initiative to jump off the fourth floor."

"Only stupid fork will jump."

"Forcing others to admit something, I'm afraid she is not a good person."

"That's right, isn't that Qin Ze? A famous bum in the capital, can he do good deeds?"

...

The old woman saw that everyone was on her side, her face was triumphant, and she pointed to Gong Qingyao, "What do you mean?"

Qin Ze saw that the old woman looked bad and stood in front of Gong Qingyao, "How did you know that Cao Peng jumped from the fourth floor?"

"Of course…"

The old woman hadn't finished her words, and the old man on the side stood up and interrupted her, "Cao Peng came back and told us that he accidentally fell from the fourth floor. Fortunately, the floor was not high and did not endanger his life."

The old woman nodded, "Yes, that's it." She felt dangerous in her heart, and she almost told the truth just now.

Seeing more and more people came to watch, and some even started taking pictures with their mobile phones, Gong Qingyao planned to make a quick attack, "Actually, you wanted to say just now was ‘Of course, because we made him jump’ right?"
