Return of the Antagonistic Lady Boss - Chapter 28
Xiaoqian was telling the story expressionlessly as Yu Minglang’s heart was wrenching when he was listening to her story.
No wonder she was always so conflicted. She extracted herself from the world because nobody cared for her or gave her any warmth. That was why her thoughts were so bleak.
“You must think that it was shameless of me to extort money from the Ni Jianren. But let me tell you, I had to do it!”
She could tell you for sure. As long as she lived in this current life, she would not let the bastard have a comfortable life.
Yu Minglang remained silent for a while. Then, he said,
“I never thought that it was shameless that you wanted money. I can understand how you must feel.”
Xiaoqian raised her head in surprise. Was he going to stop being the moral police?
“But if you do that, you’ll violate the law. I have better ways to help you. Don’t lower yourself for people like that.” Yu Minglang said with a serious face.
Xiaoqian rolled her eyes and said, “Aren’t you boring!”
It was no surprise to her that he always stood on the righteous side. How could she spend the rest of her life with this man? Who wants to spend a lifetime with this man? She would probably be bored to death.
“I’m not an interesting man…” Yu Minglang was embarrassed. Actually, he did buy [Humour Master] and read them in secret. However, it seemed that people were born with a sense of humor but he just could not cultivate it.
“Right, wait for me!”
He stood up suddenly and walked to his room. He started to flip through his drawer looking for something.
He had another place to stay. He usually did not come back here. This was because his mother would urge him to get married. He would only stay for a short while.
Xiaoqian saw that he went to the bedroom and she quickly stood up to search for an exit. However, she could not open the door.
She was not sure how that door worked and she tried to open it but was to no avail.
“You need a key for that, I’ve locked it from within.” Yu Minglang came out with a bunch of things.
Then she saw that they were books and wanted to laugh so badly.
“Yu Minglang! What is this!”
Do not tell me that he brought the books of Marx, Lenin, Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaopeng to give her a morality ethics and politics class.
He better not, because Xiaoqian would probably use her lady boss attitude. She would probably take off her shoes and slap his handsome face thoroughly with it!
“When you feel down, have a go at it. You’ll feel better.” These were all his precious collection.
Xiaoqian was about to ridicule him, but she was attracted by the book cover.
To be more exact, she was not attracted but shocked by Yu Minglang’s choice of books.
“These are what you read in your free time?!”
This completely and utterly overturned her image of him!
In her previous life, they dated for a while. However, she never went to his place, thus she never saw these.
The books that Yu Minglang brought were not about moralities but were all comics!
“This is Humour Master, it is quite funny. When you are unhappy have a go at it. And this…”
Yu Minglang picked up a Japanese comic with a serious face. When Xiaoqian saw the title her lips ticked.
My goodness! It toppled her values! Somebody, anybody, would like to see a cool man that reads Dragonball?
‘Should he not be holding a sign that said ‘destroy RB imperialism’ and shout something along the lines of ‘long live the king’?’
‘All he needed now was a tattoo of ‘I’m a manly man!’ on his face. I couldn’t believe a man like this would read these.’
Yu Minglang was embarrassed when he saw her reaction. He then cleared his throat.
“It’s actually quite interesting…”
“These are from Japan?”
“We should learn from the strength that the opponent possesses. I think the friendship and passion that these books convey are something that we should learn.”
He was talking nonsense with such a serious face!
Xiaoqian would probably believe him if she did not read those before.
What the fork, do you need to explain so much for reading Japanese comics?!
“I never thought that Yu Minglang is…” This was very different from the Yu Minglang that she had in mind!
The image she had of Yu Minglang remained at the well-ironed suited. An awe-inspiring, cold-looking man who suffered facial nerve paralysis from her previous life.
Who would have thought that this man had a youthful period?
“Just bring them home and read them attentively. Don’t lose any of them. You’ll have to return them back to me after you are done with them.”
“Stingy!” Saying such things to a girl when lending her things, do you want to remain single for the rest of your life?
Xiaoqian suddenly understood the reason that he was single in the previous life.
“These are genuine limited editions!” Yu Minglang stressed that with a serious face. There was no way you could buy them again if you lose them.
These were his precious collections. He would not show them if he did not have feelings for the Zhou Zhiruo look-alike.
“Keep it for yourself, I don’t read these.” Xiaoqian pushed them back to him.
With a straight face, he said, “You have to read these, you need happiness in your life.”
The corners of Xiaoqian’s mouth twitched as she said, “I’ll be happy after reading these Japanese comics?”
What kind of logic was this?!
“And this, this is for you.” He flipped through the comics, found a passbook and passed it to Xiaoqian.
“What is the meaning of this!” Xiaoqian stopped smiling and looked at him with her defenses up.
He felt sorry for me?
A man that you newly acquainted gave you money. What was the meaning of this?
She was not a naive girl.
If Yu Minglang looked at her with a frivolous attitude, thinking that she was the kind of woman who would…upon receiving his money. Xiaoqian would flipout.
Anyone could look down on her. Even if it were her parents who sold her out like goods, she could brush it aside with a cold smile.
However, Yu Minglang could not. He could not look down on her.
Yu Minglang quickly explained when he saw Xiaoqian look at him with an offended expression.
“These are the remaining savings I have after buying the house. Only thirty thousand left. I have some more in the trust fund. If you need more, I can sell the trust funds.”
“What do you want!” Xiaoqian threw the passbook in his face. She was enraged.
“I don’t want anything.” He quickly explained when he saw she was enraged.
Xiaoqian was deeply hurt by his action. She pushed him away and with all her might she tried to escape. Yu Minglang knew that she could not escape but still stopped her with his arm.
“Please let me explain!”
“Explain, you son of a b*tch!” She thought that he looked down on her!
“My mother is already in her sixties, you can’t talk bad about her!”
Xiaoqian got annoyed that he was able to retort her.
She forgot that she was not very close to him in this life. She used the method she used in her previous life to throw a tantrum at him and punched him with force.
“Yu Minglang, your second uncle’s claw.”
“My uncle is two years older than my father. Are you sure you want to say that about an elderly person?”
Poor uncle! Always getting attacked for no reason.
“Ah!!!” Xiaoqian broke down. She wanted someone to get this silly Yu away from her. She could not take it anymore!
