Russell initially thought it was an “assassin,” “robber,” or some other crook, so he was so frightened that he retreated to a corner.
However, he looked over to see that it was a mild-mannered and civilized-looking man who had gotten on his knees to beg for money as soon as he came over. He seemed to be in trouble.
Russell walked over only after ensuring that there was no threat or danger.
Russell sized up the young man before asking, “Young man, how did you end up here to borrow money from us?”
Jordan also found it very strange that someone would suddenly pop up out of nowhere to borrow money from them.
The young man answered truthfully, “I just saw your yacht on the Hudson River, and through a pair of binoculars, I saw you guys eating. I know you’re all wealthy folks, and $20,000 is probably only the price of a meal to you.”
“So, I jumped into the Hudson River and then climbed up here to ask you for help.”
“I am a graduate of the University of Political Science and Law, and here’s my graduate diploma. I’m not unemployed, and I actually hold a legitimate job with a monthly income of $5,000. If you’re willing to end me $20,000, I’ll definitely be able to repay you the entire sum!”
Russell grabbed the wet graduation diploma book and flipped through it before smiling.
“You’re brave, courageous, and resourceful. You’re also very clear about your goals. Not bad.”
Jordan could also tell that this young man was rather intelligent to target them because anyone who can dine on this yacht definitely wouldn’t take $20,000 seriously.
The fact that he could climb up to this yacht was enough to prove his talent.
Jordan asked, “What do you need to borrow $20,000 for? Is your family member sick?”
An outstanding student of the University of Political Science and Law who was drawing quite a reasonable salary definitely wouldn’t swallow his pride to get on their knees and beg someone to lend them money unless they were in a desperate situation.
The young man said, “No, I just need money for my wedding. I’m getting married to my girlfriend, but her family wants me to buy a house, a car, and give them $40,000 in cash.”
“I’ve already bought a house and a car, and they have all been paid in full with my parents’ lifelong savings as well as the hard-earned money I’ve been saving in the past two years of living a frugal life. I also borrowed lots of money from others.”
“I’m such a loser. I’ve tried all sorts of ways and borrowed money from all my relatives and friends, but I have amassed at most only $20,000 for the monetary gift.”
“I’m short of another $20,000. Just another $20,000, and I’ll have enough money to get married.”
“I’m begging you, please lend me $20,000. I swear I’ll definitely return it to you!”
The young man spoke very sincerely, and with Jordan’s knowledge of psychology, he could tell from the signs that he wasn’t lying.
Russell nodded and seemed to admire this man as well.
“Young man, you’re really bold and courageous. You’re a student of a prestigious university of politics and law. Still, you’re willing to swallow your pride to get on your knees and beg us for money. I really admire you!”
“You’re indeed not doing too well, and you don’t even have enough money for your wedding, but maybe you’re only short of a chance.”
“Since fate has brought you to me, I’ll give you a chance today!”
“I’ll lend you the $20,000, and on top of that, I’ll offer you a job in my company that will pay you double of your current monthly salary!”
The young man was overjoyed, and he exclaimed, “Is that true? Thank you, Sir! Thank you! Great, I can finally marry Lauren!”
Without any sense of pride, the young man kowtowed to Russell to thank him.
Russell stood in place arrogantly, smoking a cigarette and holding a glass of red wine in hand. He said, “As long as you’re under me, I can let you marry any woman you want!”
“On the contrary, as long as you mess with me, Russell Miller, I’ll have the ability to make even your wife leave you!”
Russell was extremely arrogant.
He was totally like the wealthy and obnoxious villains in movies!
Russell looked at the young man, Wilson, and said, “You’re Wilson, right? I’ll give you a phone number, call this number in an hour, and he’ll transfer you $20,000. He will also proceed with the administrative procedures of your job position in m company.”
“Yes, thank you, Mr. Miller! Thank you, Mr. Miller!”
After receiving the number from Russell, Wilson wrote it down and then gratefully kowtowed a few more times.
He then stood up and said, “Thank you, Mr. Miller, I shall not disturb your meal any further. I’ll get going now.”
Wilson was about to leave in satisfaction, but Jordan called out to him to stop him. “Did I say you could leave?”
This was the yacht that Jordan had borrowed. Given his close relationship to the owner, the yacht was tantamount to being Jordan’s at the moment.
There would be no issues with Jordan acting as the owner of the yacht!
A stranger had come on board Jordan’s yacht. While Jordan stayed silent, Russell pretended to be impressive. He flaunted his ability to control the well-being of others under the pretext of being a kind person.
‘Is he going to leave just like that?’
‘Who does he take me for?!’
Wilson turned around to look at Jordan, who was about the same age as himself and confused.
Jordan said austerely, “This is my yacht. Did I say that you can leave?”
Russell frowned and said, “This kid is here to borrow money. Now that he has gotten a loan, why are you holding him back for? Do you intend to let him stay for a meal?”
Jordan said, “You’ve indeed lent him money, but I haven’t made my stand.”
Russell laughed and said, “It seems that you want to vie with me for the chance to be a good man. Do you want to lend money to him?”
Jordan rolled his eyes at Russell and said, “Who said I want to lend him money?”
Jordan walked towards Wilson and said, “You’re an elite graduate of the University of Political Science and Law, and you’re earning a decent income. Given your intelligence and guts, your future prospects shouldn’t be too bad.”
“Yet, you’ve broken the law today and trespassed a private yacht. You even got on your knees to beg someone for money just for your damned wedding!”
“Don’t you think all the education you’ve received in the past decade or so has gone down the drain!?!”
Wilson lowered his head and said, “I am indeed very useless. I can’t even afford to give my girlfriend’s parents $40,000 as a gift. I spent close to a million dollars on the house. My girlfriend and I are both from Orlando, and I’m sure you know how expensive property prices are over there. I’m really at my wits’ end, and my girlfriend’s parents have demanded that I pay $40,000, not a single cent less.”
Jordan hollered, “You should not give a single cent to them!”
Wilson and Russell were both dumbfounded.
Jordan continued, “Asking for a monetary gift as a condition for marriage is the absolutely most disgusting thing to me. Bill Gates got married with nothing to his name, and this is an unreasonable request!”
“You’ve been working for two years with a monthly income of $6,000. Even if you scrimped and saved, you’d have at most tens of thousands of dollars. How could you possibly afford to buy a million-dollar home and a car that costs 50 grand or so!?!”
“If you have to obtain these material assets before she is willing to marry you, have you ever thought about whether she is marrying you because of you or because of your assets?!”
