Gu De Shou’s silence makes Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart turns cold.
Although Gu Enterprise is nearing bankruptcy, Li Yu Feng’s jewelleries alone are worth more than the amount she asked.
They are using her desperation as their bargaining chip.
Gu De Shou sighs, “Nai Nai, it is not that we do not have 500,000 yuan, but you also know the current condition of our household. We are probably going to lose even our house. You and Mr. Si….”
Before he even finishes speaking, Li Yu Feng sneers, “You care that much for that thief? Our family does not owe her anything, serve her right to be dragged to court like that! She is lucky we are not suing her. If you want to do something, you better think of ways to make Mr. Si agree to our marriage alliance.”
Zhuang Nai Nai frowns at her, “My mother is not a thief!”
“She is a criminal! She stole my child! The evidences are right in front of your eyes, why are you trying to make excuses for her?”
Zhuang Nai Nai clenches her fist, “No matter, remember what you promised me. I will help you go through this difficult time, and in return, you will give me 500,000 yuan.”
Li Yu Feng scoffs at her, “Have you fulfilled your part of the agreement?”
Whatever guilt left inside Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart disappears after she hears that.
She recollects herself before saying, “Si Zheng Ting already gave me his words. We are getting married as soon as possible.”
The moment she says that, Gu De Shou stands up in excitement, “Really?”
Li Yu Feng looks at her, somewhat in disbelief.
Zhuang Nai Nai laughs, “Of course! It should be out in the news tomorrow. You know it yourself, he is pretty dismissive towards women. But towards me….”
She lowers her head, a bitter taste lingering inside her throat, “He has been busy these days, arranging our wedding. And dad, you should take some time to meet his family members.”
Gu De Shou nods repeatedly while rubbing his hands in excitement, “Of course! Of course!”
Zhuang Nai Nai looks at him, “Then, the 500,000 yuan……”
“Give it to her once the news is out tomorrow,” Li Yu Feng says before Gu De Shou gets to say anything.
Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart sinks as she nods. Then, she turns around and returns to the room that they have prepared for her.
The moment she enters her room, her expression falters. She sits on the couch, hugging her knees.
Once Si Zheng Ting realizes that he has been used, will he do anything to Gu Enterprise?
Zhuang Nai Nai takes a deep breath, hoping it isn’t so.
She takes out her phone and dials Lin Xi Er’s number.
Si Zheng Ting stands in the balcony of his villa as smoke whirls on the air around him. He looks at the view in front of him, his mind is filled with what Zhuang Nai Nai had said.
‘I still like you, I love you, that’s why I want to marry you!’
‘I regret it now. I have always liked you, let’s get married!’
He stubs the cigar in his hand before picking up his phone and dialing for Ji Chen, “Clear out my schedules for the next two months.”
Ji Chen is stunned, “Sir, can I perhaps ask why?”
“I need to prepare for my wedding.”
