“Occasionally. Mr. Sang, I don’t know if you can do me a favor and wait for two more days?”
Mo Fei was anxious and she secretly put her hand behind me and pinched my waist. Of course I understood what she was thinking. In two days, unless we combined our savings together, otherwise, we would not be able to get enough money to pay him back. But I was not worried because I knew that Sang Yingjie would definitely take the initiative to give me at least one month’s time.
Sure enough, Sang Yingjie frowned for a moment, then smiled, “Mr. Chu, what are you talking about? Since you are tight with money, I have no problem waiting for another month. Just consider this a gesture of goodwill. After all, I like to make friends with people like Mr. Chu. Haha.”
Although I had already expected it, I still let out a sigh of relief. After taking another sip of coffee, I said slightly, “since you insisted, I won’t decline your offer. But don’t worry, I will definitely pay your back in full and with the interest as well.”
“Mr. Chu, you are too kind.” Sang Yingjie said generously, “There is no need to pay me the interest.”
No need my ass! You only lend two hundred forty thousand Yuan, but you will get three hundred thousand Yuan in return. That’s sixty thousand interests! I knew that Sang Yingjie deliberately pretended to be a good guy, hoping that in the future, if I lose my money, I will borrow more money from him.
I simply said unconcernedly, “in that case, I will thank you on behalf of my auntie.”
“There is no need to thank me, we are friends after all.” Sang Yingjie was also a quite smart guy, at least, he could tell that he was not welcomed in this flat, so he got up and said, “I’m sorry for coming in uninvited. In the future, if Mr. Chu has time, you may visit my place. Although my place is not as good as the casinos in Macau, it is still not bad. You can still have a lot of fun. Hehe.”
“Okay.” I deliberately revealed an expression as if I was very tempted, got up and shook hands with Sang Yingjie, and then immediately sat down again, with no intention of seeing the guests out.
Seeing that Sang Yingjie was finally about to leave, but I didn’t show any intention of wanting to see them out, Mo Fei and Wu Xueqing were both very nervous. They were scared that Sang Yingjie would get angry and then changed his mind. But Sang Yingjie didn’t mind it at all. He even said goodbye and then left with his men happily.
To make them believe that I had money and background, first I had to let them believe that I wasn’t acting. People often said that thugs without knowledge were not scary at all. The only scary thugs were those, who with knowledge. I was very lucky because Sang Yingjie didn’t know much about rich people.
Nowadays, there were two kinds of people that could be fooled easily. One was stupid people, and the other one was smart people. Sang Yingjie was smart, that was why he would try to lure me, this seemingly big fish into his casino. I wasn’t worried that they would check my background, after all from the beginning to the end, I never said that I had a background. It was all just he himself thought that way. All I needed was just one month’s time.
After Wu Xueqing finally saw off Sang Yingjie, I collapsed weakly on the sofa.
“Chu Nan, you’re really good at telling lies,” I couldn’t tell whether Mo Fei’s expression was appreciation or fear. She looked at me with her beautiful eyes and asked me, “why are they so nice during the conversation, but so scary during the phone call earlier?”
It was at this moment, Wu Xueqing came back. She was a woman who had many experiences, so of course, she saw through my tricks. She couldn’t help but laugh, “Silly girl, they thought that Chu Nan was someone, who had an important background. Because they didn’t know who he was exactly, that was why they didn’t dare to offend him. But…”
She suddenly paused and looked at me, “a small white-collar worker like you, where are you going to get money in one month?”
“So, you have someone better that can help you?” Even if Mo Fei was sitting next to me, I still couldn’t hold back the urge to say this to her.
Mo Fei also frowned, “Mom, Chu Nan is trying to help you!”
“I …” Wu Xueqing’s face turned red. She also didn’t know why she would say that sentence. So she felt embarrassed.
I stood up and sighed, “This is a valuable lesson. Gambling is as dangerous as a life-threatening drug. Auntie, it’s time to quit. You should think more about Feifei, you don’t want her to spend all her savings to pay off your debt, do you?”
However, Wu Xueqing was clearly not a person who would listen to the people that were younger than her. Her face instantly fell and then she said sharply, “who do you thin-”
I instantly glared at her, and she immediately realized that I still had the recording that could be used against her, so she quickly changed her words, “You are right, I should stop gambling…”
I smiled triumphantly, and carried on, “Good, since you know that it is wrong, it’s still not too late to make up for it, and don’t worry about money, Feifei and I will help you solve it, but … this is the last time.” I said the last five words word by word while gnashing my teeth.
“Yes, yes, thank you.” Wu Xueqing was not willing to say those words, but she still had to say it because of the recording that I had in my hand.
“Okay,” I nodded in satisfaction, “Since it’s fine now, I will have to go back, Feifei, you can stay with auntie for a while, I have something to do, maybe I will go back to the company later…”
After something like this happened, Mo Fei must have something that she wanted to say to Wu Xueqing, so hearing what I said, she got up, “I will see you out.”
After coming out of the flat, Mo Fei asked, “is the thing you are going to do the short-term investment we talked about?”
“Yes,” I looked at the time, it was almost half-past eleven. “If everything goes smoothly, I can return to the company at two.”
Mo Fei’s face was filled with guilt, and she smiled apologetically, “Don’t force yourself, if it doesn’t work, I will just ask my mother to sell this flat, and then pay the debt. She can get a smaller flat in the future.”
Mo Fei had a plan to sell this flat, it meant that she still didn’t trust me fully in her heart. But it was also a good thing, at least, it would not give me too much pressure.
“After you live in a place for some time, you will inevitably have some attachment to it. If it is not necessary, then don’t sell it. I will try my best. Besides, even if this thing doesn’t work, I can still give you my money. So you don’t need to worry. Unless you are worried that I am going to chase you for money. Haha.”
“Thank you…” Mo Fei’s eyes were filled with moved glows.
“We are friends, there is no need to thank me.” I pressed the elevator button and smiled, “Go back and try to comfort your mother. I might be a little bit too harsh earlier.”
“Since you have something to do this afternoon, I will give you half a day off,” Mo Fei suddenly smiled. It was very charming, “I never expected that my mother would be so well-behaved in front of someone, hehe, Chu Nan, do you know that You remind me of someone.”
I was curious, “Who?”
Mo Fei smiled, “My dad.”
“Your dad?” After the initial surprise, I suddenly remembered that Mo Fei’s father had already passed away, so I quickly kept a straight face, lest it would bring some bad memories to her.
Sure enough, Mo Fei’s eyes appeared a flash of sadness. Then she forced herself to give me a big smile and said, “I have only seen my dad talk to my mom like that. But you are much better, she used to argue with my dad, but she didn’t dare to talk back to you.”
“Is it…” I was speechless. If I hadn’t had that recording, she probably would have hit me already.
It was at this moment, the elevator’s door was opened, and I took the opportunity to end the topic and said, “If I can finish the work earlier, I will still go back to the company, bye.”
I had just stepped into the elevator, but before I even had a chance to react, Mo Fei’s beautiful face was already in front of me. While I was stunned, the scene that happened that afternoon, and the moment I still felt that it was an unrealistic dream until now, repeated again.
My face and Mo Fei’s soft lips were tightly pressed against each other.
Mo Fei’s face tilted to the side, and her right hand habitually tucked a strand of her hair behind her right ear, and her watery eyes were filled with a bit naive joy and a little playfulness, and a few shyness…
