Quick Transmigration with Female Lead Aura - Chapter 141
Destroying Guo Xiuyu and Yang Hai was easier than expected. Jiang Tao went home to trouble Guo Xiuyu, and Yang Hai was surrounded by reporters in the company. Although he quickly issued a statement expressing that it was a misunderstanding, but few were the people who really believed his claims, and the stocks went down nevertheless. The key was that Jiang Tao himself didn’t believe him, and hung up on him repetitively.
Under such a crisis, and being suppressed by Xiao Zheng for so long, Yang Hai couldn’t even begin to express his bitterness, and the company was already facing collapse. At such a critical time, Jiang Tao decided to terminate all cooperation with him and withdraw all funds. The development project in the north of the city was put on hold as soon as it started.
Jiang Tao loved his face very much. His wife and good brother made trouble like this. If he doesn’t do something, what will the outside world say about him? Of course, he couldn’t just accept such a thing.
Yang Hai was completely over. Guo Xiuyu knew that the land in the north of the city would make a lot of money according to her previous life, so she invested a sum of money in Yang Hai privately and bought shares in Yang Hai and Jiang Tao’s companies as well. So this time, she naturally lost all the money invested. Still, Guo Xiuyu was Jiang Boxue’s mother, and no matter how angry Jiang Tao was, he would not drive her out of the house, at least for the time being. No matter how wronged Guo Xiuyu was, for the sake of her child, for Jiang Tao’s family property, and for the loss suffered in this period of time, she was unwilling to leave the Jiang family.
As a result, Jiang Tao and Guo Xiuyu not only lost the harmony and love they had before, but sometimes they would quarrel in front of Jiang Boxue. Jiang Tao was angry all day, Guo Xiuyu cried, and Jiang Boxue, who was the least fond of learning, would rather be in school than to stay at home. The whole family was in turmoil.
Jiang Nian was happy to watch the excitement, and had already selected a small house to move in. When the old lady learned that Jiang Nian was going to move out, she was very stunned, and wanted to keep her from leaving. Why are you moving out when you’re living well here? Don’t leave! Jiang Nian explained: “The company’s affairs have been resolved. Xiao Zheng has been able to take charge of the company himself for quite a while now. I will live for myself in the future. Isn’t this about starting a new life? It’s not good to live here all the time.”
The old lady naturally knew that their family had dragged Jiang Nian down. When Xiao Yi died, she was only 25 years old. She was in her prime, she could start over, but for the Xiao family, she stood alone for ten years, even at the risk of breaking ties with the Jiang family. Now that she said she wanted to live for herself and start a new life, no matter how much the old lady had no more words to say.
“It’s the same at home, you can do whatever you want here, you don’t have to move out.”
“It’s different, grandma.”
“Why is it different? It’s the same!”
Jiang Nian sighed: “Grandma, my dad knows that I’m a sweet cake, and he’s trying to trick me into going home. These days, when I go out, there are many people who come to show their hospitality, both men and women, and even some people want to introduce me to young boys. Some, who are a little more tactful, say they admire me and that they want to be friends with me, and those who are not ask me directly if I have any ambitions… The purpose of these people, grandma, you should understand. That is, I am smart and I have not been fooled, if I was stupid, how can the Xiao family have today? ”
The old lady took Jiang Nian’s hand: “I know you won’t do that. You stay, if Xiao Zheng really loses, it can only be said that his skills are not as good as others, and he is stupid!”
Jiang Nian thought of the beautiful life waiting for her and strengthened her resolve; no matter what, she’d move out and live the licentious life she’d been wanting all along.
The old lady couldn’t persuade her, and even felt anger toward Xiao Zheng. She felt that Jiang Nian was so smart, she must have discovered Xiao Zheng’s bad intentions, thus she had no choice but to move out.
Xiao Zheng went crazy when he learned that Jiang Nian was going to leave. He walked around the room like a trapped beast, thinking about why Jiang Nian wanted to move out. Was it because of that university professor? Was she really going to forget everything in the past, forget his big brother, and start a new life?
He had a headache all night long, but he couldn’t hold and went to Jiang Nian, asking cautiously and expectantly, “Can you not leave?”
Jiang Nian just woke up. Looking at Xiao Zheng, who had obviously not slept all night and had bloodshot eyes and prominent eyebags, she shook her head decisively, “No.”
Xiao Zheng said eagerly: “Grandma and I will not hinder you. You can do whatever you want. As long as you want to do something, I will support you! As long as you stay, you can do whatever you want!”
Jiang Nian sighed, this little brat is about to become a poor little boy.
“There will be no discussion, don’t persuade me, I will move out and that’s the final say.”
Xiao Zheng felt very uncomfortable, as if his heart shattered and was glued back together.
He was hiding like this because he was afraid that he would scare Jiang Nian away. Now that she really ran away, what should he be afraid of?
The advantage of being rich is that if Jiang Nian wants to move to a new house, everything will be ready in less than a week. She just needs to carry her luggage and go straight there.
Jiang Tao, who knew that Jiang Nian was going to move out, called her and invited her to go home and live directly, as there was no need to live outside.
Jiang Nian said hypocritically, “I’m afraid that when I come back, you and Ms. Guo Xiuyu will have an even more unpleasant quarrel. It would be bad if she thought I wanted your property.”
Jiang Tao was really angry: “You don’t have to worry about her, humph, I think she and Yang Hai partnered to cheat me for money! Do you really think I’m stupid?”
Jiang Nian smiled, Jiang Tao thought he was so smart, but isn’t he actually being tricked?
She didn’t stay at Xiao’s house, so naturally she couldn’t go to Jiang’s house.
But what she didn’t expect was that Xiao Zheng came to the door the third night after she moved out.
He seemed to be drinking, and he huddled outside the iron gate of her house, giving a big scare to the aunt who was throwing garbage who almost called the police to arrest him. Fortunately, he helped Jiang Nian when she moved in, otherwise she couldn’t have recognized him.
“Mr. Xiao, are you looking for Miss Jiang?”
“Do you want to come in?”
Auntie had no choice but to go ask Jiang Nian for help. When Jiang Nian heard the news, she went there and saw Xiao Zheng crouched by the wall, looking pitiful, as if he had been abandoned. The smell of alcohol was really strong, who knew how many shots he drank.
She approached and patted him: “Xiao Zheng, Xiao Zheng?”
The man leaning against the wall squinted at her, and the outline under the shadow of the wall became more profound, as if he had regained some sense. He probably didn’t, because in the next moment he grinned stupidly: “Sister-in-law!”
Jiang Nian said, “Aren’t you drunk yet? Auntie, go and bring uncle to help.”
Auntie hurriedly responded, turned and ran to call the uncle.
Jiang Nian stood up, Xiao Zheng misunderstood that she was going to leave, so he stretched his hands and hugged her leg, not loosening his hold at all, like a puppy, “Don’t go, don’t go…”
Jiang Nian coaxed helplessly: “I won’t go, you let go.”
“No, I won’t.” He hugged her leg and said aggrievedly, “As soon as I let go, you will run away.”
For some reason, it sounded very sad, as if Jiang Nian really became the heartless scumbag who abandoned him.
Jiang Nian sighed and patted his head in helplessness: “I really don’t want to go, let go.”
After the aunt called the uncle, the two’s joined efforts were not enough to pull Xiao Zheng off Jiang Nian’s legs, which resulted in almost ripping Jiang Nian’s pants off! Jiang Nian couldn’t help it, and in the end, she couldn’t continue pretending to be a lady, so she simply dragged him back with his back collar in one hand, just like carrying a little chick, making the uncle and aunt stunned.
When Xiao Zheng woke up the next day, he felt that not only his head hurts, but his buttocks also hurt.
He was sitting in a completely unfamiliar room, and he couldn’t remember how he got here. He only remembered that he and Shen Quan had been drinking, and then he couldn’t help it, so he went to Jiang Nian…
He vaguely remembered that he seemed to be hugging Jiang Nian’s leg…
Thinking of this, he broke out in a cold sweat, rolled over and got up from the bed.
When he walked out of the room, the first person he saw was the aunt who smiled happily at him. He shook a little and wondered if he had done anything out of the ordinary last night? He scratched his hair: “I was yesterday…”
Auntie said: “It’s okay, I understand, you were drunk.”
Xiao Zheng: “…I didn’t do anything, right?”
Auntie shook her head and said, “No.”
Xiao Zheng breathed a sigh of relief instantly, that’s good, he didn’t do anything terrible. “Then why am I sleeping here?”
Auntie said, “Last night, you held onto Miss Jiang’s leg and we couldn’t pull you away no matter how hard we tried. Miss Jiang personally dragged you in. You didn’t let us help. As soon as we approached you, you said we were going to rob your sister-in-law and drove us away. In the end, Miss Jiang took care of you. ”
Xiao Zheng: “…” No wonder his butt hurts so much.
Jiang Nian was watering the flowers and grass in the back yard at this time. As a rich person, she enjoyed her life very much. When Xiao Zheng came out and saw Jiang Nian, he couldn’t help but shrank his neck. He tried hard to think about what happened last night, but he couldn’t remember anything except the fuzzy memory of him hugging her leg.
He can’t remember just enough to deceive himself, but he has a ghost in his heart, he is afraid that he was not be able to bear it, and said some words he shouldn’t have because he couldn’t control himself.
He hesitated for a while, but still approached her in the end.
Seeing him, Jiang Nian asked calmly, “Sober?”
Xiao Zheng didn’t answer and looked at her face cautiously. Seeing that she didn’t seem to be embarrassed or unnatural, it seemed that he didn’t say anything last night. He didn’t know whether to be happy or disappointed.
“I’m sorry, I troubled you last night.”
“It’s good that you know, do you know how stupid you are when you’re drunk?”
Xiao Zheng ate breakfast and lunch absentmindedly, and then returned to Xiao’s house with the smell of alcohol emanating from him. The old lady was already waiting at home, and she sighed heavily when she saw him, but did not accuse him like before.
“Do you really like her so much? Is it absolutely necessary to be her?”
“I don’t know how much I like her, but when I can’t see her, I feel very sad…” The
The old lady looked at him for a long time, and finally sighed helplessly and went upstairs with her crutches.
Xiao Zheng also went back to his room, took a shower and changed into clean clothes. He desperately wanted to recall what happened last night, but no matter what he thought, he couldn’t remember what happened at that time. He was very disappointed and felt as if he forgot something very important.
He held his head in his hands and thought about it for a day, but he still couldn’t remember. When he went to bed at night, because he was so absorbed in thinking, he even lost sleep. He couldn’t sleep at all. At four or five in the morning, he finally fell asleep for a while because of his body shutting down.
He was in a daze as if he had a dream. In the dream, he was in an unfamiliar room. He was thrown onto the bed by Jiang Nian and slapped away by her, he fell back on the bed, got up and hugged her again…
Several times, he rolled from the bed to the bottom of the bed and hugged her legs, she seemed tired and poked him in the head: “You, be obedient!”
“Jiang Nian, don’t leave me, I really like you…”
Xiao Zheng suddenly woke out of his dream. He felt that everything in the dream was incredibly real, too real for it to be a dream.
