Chapter 25: For 500,000 Yuan

 

Zhuang Nai Nai’s phone suddenly rings, causing her to snap out of her thoughts.

She immediately looks at her mother.  Her mother’s eyes are moving, showing signs that she is going to wake up soon.  She immediately turns the volume down before slowly getting up, leaving the room together with Lin Xi Er.

She looks at the screen and can see a string of number.

The moment she accepts the call, the piercing voice of a lady can be heard through the speaker, “Wei, have you prepared the 500,000 yuan?”

Zhuang Nai Nai pauses, her expression turning hard.  Her voice is a little harsh as she speaks, “Not yet.”

“Not yet?  Just wait for the court summons!”

Court summons?

Zhuang Nai Nai sneers icily, “You said you will give me five days, it has only been three days.  What are you so hasty for?”

“Stop with the five days three days nonsense!  If you couldn’t gather 500,000 yuan within three days, would you be able to gather it within 5 days?  You better give me the money now, or else….”

“Then let’s just settle this in court!  My mother has been diagnosed with mental disorder, she will only be admitted to a mental hospital at worst!  How much is the hospital bill for your daughter’s injury?  You want to talk about 500,000 yuan?  It will not even exceed 5000 yuan!”

(TN: 500,000 yuan = USD79,155.  5000 yuan = USD791)

“You….!”

“Since I promised you five days, I will give to you in five days.  I will not give you a single cent right now!”

The person on the other side of line scoffs.  “Fine, I will give you two more days!”

After hanging up on the phone, Zhuang Nai Nai heaves a deep sigh.

That day, after she followed Gu De Shou, her mother turned insane and chased after the car.  She grabbed onto a young girl, and kept calling her Nai Nai.  Since she used too much force, the little girl dislocated her shoulder.  Zhuang Nai Nai wanted to keep the authorities out of this and wanted to settle this privately, but the girl’s parents demanded 500,000 yuan as compensation.

Lin Xi Er looks at Zhuang Nai Nai, absolutely furious, “They are basically extorting money from you!  They knew you didn’t want to send Auntie to a mental institution!”

Of course, she does not want to send her mother there.

Although a good mental institution offers complete care, the life in there is not free.  She can only visit her mom once a week; what is the difference between that place and a prison?

She enters the room once again and crouches next to her mother.  She hugs her body gently.

Dear Readers. Scrapers have recently been devasting our views. At this rate, the site (creativenovels .com) might...let's just hope it doesn't come to that. If you are reading on a scraper site. Please don't.

Her mother worked so hard her entire life to provide for Zhuang Nai Nai, how could she bear to send her to that place?

Mama, I do not believe that you are someone who will steal another person’s child.  Even if you are not my biological mother, I believe you had your own difficulties at that time.  Don’t worry, I will marry Si Zheng Ting and make sure he help Gu Enterprise.  That way, Gu De Shou will give me 500,000 yuan.

On the next day, Zhuang Nai Nai wakes up at 4 am to prepare a bento.

She gets really busy inside the kitchen.

Being able to eat a set of loving meals as breakfast ought to make Si Zheng Ting view her as a capable fiancee.

She sets out at 5 am and reaches the front of Di Hao Group at 7 am.

Since she got there too early, the coffee shop in front of the building is not open yet.  She can only stand there, staring at the entrance of Di Hao Group in full concentration.

As the sun slowly rises, Si Zheng Ting’s car finally comes into view.  The black Maybach catches the attention of everyone as it elegantly glides in.  All eyes are trained on the car.
