Return of the Antagonistic Lady Boss - Chapter 30
Yu Minglang pushed Xiaoqian to the couch, then he got up. He went to the bedroom to get his cellphone and made a call in front of Xiaoqian.
“Aunty, it’s Minglang. I have something to tell you. I saw Lee Zhen and a man going into a hotel…How did I see it? I just passed by.”
Xiaoqian was astounded.
She always thought she was ruthless. She liked to throw in the trump card and destroy her opponents by surprise.
Now, Yu Minglang was pretty ruthless.
He actually told Lee Zhen’s parents about what Lee Zhen and Ni Jianren did!
He pulled the rug from under!
She would bet that the bastards would rather endure her secretive way of revenge against them, than Yu Minglang’s way of dealing with them ‘openly’.
This was because Yu Minglang’s way was more ruthless!
“Yes. I’m positive that I was not mistaken. And, I took the responsibility to check the man’s background thoroughly, there’s something fishy going on.”
He took a glance at Xiaoqian. He took responsibility alright, but not as the cousin of that bastard, but for Xiaoqian. Since he held the Zhou Zhirou look-alike’s hand.
“That man was in the same department with Lee Zhen, his moral conduct is questionable.”
He cheated ‘his’ Zhou Zhiruo look-alike. It was unforgivable. Yu Minglang’s aunty knew that he was a trustworthy man.
If Yu Minglang said that his moral conduct is questionable, he must not be good.
The aunty knew something about her son’s fetish. She turned a blind eye, hoping that he would grow out of it.
Since Yu Minglang made the call, she realized the severity of the matter.
“I will take care of it. Minglang, can you not tell your uncle about it?”
“That depends on Lee Zhen’s future performance.”
After Yu Minglang hung up the phone, he turned to Xiaoqian and gave her a brilliant smile.
“You see that? There’s always an up-and-up way to punish the bad guys.”
Xiaoqian looked at him in silence for a few seconds, and a thought emerged in her heart, ‘He may look righteous, but he can be dark-hearted…’
He was ruthless and he did not even have to do it himself. Now his aunty owed him a favor and his aunty will ‘take care’ of Ni Jianren.
Xiaoqian was able to conclude that Lee Zhen’s family was well to do in that short conversation.
Yu Minglang said that Ni Jianren’s moral conduct was questionable. He hinted that he was in the same department with Lee Zhen. So the aunty needed to get rid of Ni Jianren for Lee Zhen’s career prospects.
He made Ni Jianren taste his own medicine. Yu Minglang avenged for Xiaoqian.
“Where is the restroom? I want to wash my hands…” Xiaoqian was troubled by these complicated emotions. She was used to taking care of things all by herself. Now, a man was helping her. There was a complicated mixture of emotions wrapping her tightly.
She had the sudden urge to wash her hands.
Yu Minglang pointed at the restroom. She rushed to the restroom and turned on the faucet. He did not give it too much thought in the beginning. After a while he could hear the water was still running. He felt something was wrong. He went to have a look. Xiaoqian was rubbing her hands constantly. They were all red, and she was still washing them.
“Enough!” He turned off the faucet.
“Not enough!” Xiaoqian pushed him away and turned on the faucet. Yu Minglang realized that she was not washing her hands to clean them, but it was an obsession. He did not know much about psychology. However, his instinct told him that if this continues, something was going to go wrong.
Xiaoqian was very confused.
Yu Minglang being good to her brought her a great amount of stress. Which led to the worst OCD attack she ever experienced. No matter how hard she tried, she felt that there were still blood stains on her hands.
When Yu Minglang realized something was not right, he tried to stop her and brought her out. However, Xiaoqian pushed him away.
“Yu Minglang leave me alone, I’m not a good woman!”
In her own eyes, she was a bad mother who did not take good care for her daughter. All her time and energy was spent on revenging against people who have wronged her daughter and her. She had no time for any other things, she did not deserve to enjoy happiness.
“You’re a decent lady, I trust what I see.” Yu Minglang could not understand why a lady who smiled at stray cats and dogs said that she was not a good woman.
“You? Why?!” Why was he so certain about something that she was not sure.
“My vision acuity is at 4.8. I have ‘great vision’!
Another dad joke!
“How did you enter school with that vision? I seemed to remember that school like yours required perfect vision!” Was there something shady going on?
“Vision 4.8, that is 150 degrees of myopia, right? No wonder in the previous life, he wore golden-rimmed glasses when he drove.
“If you have vision acuity of 4.6, you can enroll in our school. Didn’t you know that many olympic shooting contestants are shortsighted? You can become a pilot with that vision, but you can’t be a fighter pilot…”
He was giving his popular science lecture in a serious manner.
“… I pity those kids, who threw firecrackers in the park. They got their asses kicked!” The naughty kids got their asses kicked by a shortsighted person.
Xiaoqian did not realize that her attention was shifted by Yu Minglang successfully. The urge to wash her hands disappeared and was being led cognitively by Yu Minglang.
“Shooting requires balance and stability, which are more important than having perfect vision. With a blurred vision, you wouldn’t place all attention on the target. Especially when it is a moving target, you can’t depend on your eyesight to calculate the muscle reaction time. A good shooter has an exceptional six sense.” Just like him!
If his sixth sense was not working well, he would not have found her attractive at the first sight. His sixth sense was to blame for this.
Xiaoqian sucked into his lecture on shooting.
“Thus, I believe in my instinct, you should believe my judgement too.” Yu Minglang’s point was that he believed his sixth sense that she was a decent lady.
If she did not know him well enough, Xiaoqian would probably be astounded by his extremely serious face and tone of voice.
For someone who was born with a facial nerve paralysis, coupled with his difficulty to make dad jokes. It was no wonder he was single…
“I want to go home.”
“Let me send you…the money, you…”
“I’ll accept it, I’ll borrow from you. And pay you back with interest after two years.”
“Actually you can take your time.” Yu Minglang thought it would be even better if you don’t repay me.
Then, she would be in touch with him forever…
They left the house one after another, Yu Minglang had his keys in his hand. He asked, “Why do you need the money?” He had connections, maybe they could help.
Yu Minglang dropped the keys and turned his head in surprise.
“University. I got into university. But my family wouldn’t support me, so I had to gather my own tuition fee.”
“How old are you?”
“Eighteen years old.”
Yu Minglang was thunderstruck by what Xiaoqian said.
Just as he started to like her and was planning on courting her. He found out that she was just…
18 years old?!
