Hey, Don't Be Unruly! - 25
Chapter 25 – Raise your head
Gao Yu Lan wanted to flip the table, wanted to push Hu Tian to the ground, and give him a beating but she was unable to do anything. She heard herself speak and she was still very calm.
“Is Manager Hu married?”
“Yes.” Hu Tian looked at the wedding ring on his hand and did not mind telling her the truth.
“Is your wife still alive?”
Hu Tian frowned. “Of course. Miss Gao, I’m not afraid to make this clear. This matter has nothing to do with love or affection, my family is still my family.”
There was a fire fiercely burning in her heart and the feeling of humiliation was getting more and more intense. His family is still his family……so disgusting……what does he think of his wife? Other family’s daughters who tried hard to look for a job, tried hard to make a living and when they came to him, he treated them like his toys?
Gao Yu Lan gritted her teeth and asked. “Manager Hu, are you short of money?”
Hu Tian frowned and began to think that this girl was not an easy target as he initially thought. He could see that she really wanted this job. A woman of this age, young and steady, with needs, willing to put in all efforts, had mixed around in society, knows and can accept the rules which indicated she is a willing player. Even if she is not willing, there will not be any trouble, since everyone takes what he or she needs and it is good for everyone.
Initially, he thought his qualities could attract her. It is normal for a job seeker from a small place to come looking for a job, however, to gain a foothold in this big city, how can it be so easy? So he thought she was an easy target but now her expression and her inexplicable words made him think otherwise.
Gao Yu Lan continued. “Manager Hu is not short of money? With the price of the hotel room, getting someone to accompany you is not difficult. You have a wife and you can afford to pay for it, why do you still do such a disgusting and tasteless thing?”
Hu Tian leaned back and said coldly. “Since Miss Gao is not interested in joining the company, it’s really most regrettable. If this is the case, then you should go back early to rest.”
“I am very interested in joining the company but not interested in going to bed with you.” Gao Yu Lan gritted her teeth and glared at him fiercely. “You are a shameless, dishonorable bastard! How did your wife find a scum like you? Do you think a woman can only get a job by going to bed with someone? Do you think a woman is only capable of getting a bonus by exposing her thigh? Let me tell you, your company is very good and I really want to work there but you make me feel so disgusted…….” At that moment, she did not know how to carry on scolding him. She felt very angry and was breathless. She clenched her fists and restrained herself for a while and then suddenly stood up. “You bedbug, someone should give you a kick and flatten you against the wall!”
After being scolded by her, Hu Tian flew into a rage out of humiliation. “Do you think you’re very noble and pure? I’m willing to play with you because I have high regards for you. If you are so capable, without depending on connections, without depending on others, why are you still unemployed? If you cannot play around, don’t come out to mix around. Don’t act shamelessly when given face. This is A-city and the reality in this world is very cruel. Do you think if you are willing to strip, someone will be willing to mount? Go back to the countryside and wait to drink northwest wind, you bitch!”
Her face turned red and she felt so angry that she trembled. She had never been insulted in such a harsh way, such an inferior form of insult!
Hu Tian’s last words were spoken loudly and gave the impression as if she was there to sell herself and he was the one unwilling to accept her offer. By the side were two waitresses who were strenuously trying to look over as they whispered and the stares that were directed over made Gao Yu Lan wanted to vomit.
She only felt dizzy, her eyes filled with pain and unable to bear it any longer, she instantly picked up her bag on the table and rushed out of the café.
Gao Yu Lan was unable to bear such shameless insults and her tears finally rolled down her face. She bowed her head, bolted with urgency to just leave this disgusting place, and rushed out the hotel door. It seemed someone called out her name but she did not care. Feeling angry and afraid, she quickened her pace.
As she hurried out of the hotel front entrance, suddenly someone grabbed her wrist from behind. Her whole body trembled and she screamed. The man who was pulling her wrist shouted at her. “Lan Lan, it’s me, it’s me!”
Gao Yu Lan looked back and saw Yin Ze. She blanked out and momentarily did not respond. Yin Ze…….yes, it was Yin Ze who had actually sent her here, she had totally forgotten.
She threw herself into Yin Ze’s arms and cried loudly.
Yin Ze hugged her and coaxed. “Don’t cry. I heard….. I know……don’t cry.”
Gao Yu Lan sobbed with short breaths. “I just wanted to look for a job. I’m not selling myself, how can he…… I just wanted a job, I’m serious about my work and I have worked hard. My salary can be less, it’s not a problem. I’ve never complained about overtime and I’ve never skimped on my work. I’ve never mindlessly spend company money and on business trips, I always stay in cheaper hotels. If I can, I will always travel by train instead of flying and if I can I always travel by subway instead of taking the taxi. I didn’t do anything wrong, why did they dismiss me……?”
She cried until she had no more voice. She cried miserably and spilled out all the misery of her old love and old encounters that was kept hidden in her heart. Yin Ze hugged her and was at a loss of how to calm her.
Gao Yu Lan cried for a while then finally stopped. Yin Ze took out some paper tissues and helped her to wipe her tears.
With her eyes red from crying, she said. “I’m sorry. I dragged you out so late in the night and now such a disgusting thing happened.” Yin Ze did not speak and Gao Yu Lan’s tears started to fall again. “I’m very sad, Yin Ze, my heart feels very sad. It’s so disgusting and he scolded me, he scolded me in such a vulgar way.”
“I know, I know.” Yin Ze helped to wipe her tears again and held her hands to lead her away. “Let’s go back.”
Since Gao Yu Lan had someone to rely on, she calmed down and wiped her tears like a child. At the same time, she reminded Yin Ze. “The car is parked on that side.”
“We’re not going to get the car yet.” Yin Ze put his arm around her shoulder and guided her towards the hotel. “Let’s go back to look for that bastard.”
When she heard this, immediately she stood rooted to the spot and did not want to move. “I don’t want to go, he is disgusting. I don’t want to go.”
“Come! How can you be bullied like this?” Yin Ze dragged her along. His strength was great and with one pull, he was able to make her walk. “You can’t always run away from your grievances or else you will always be bullied by others. I’m here, why should you be afraid?”
She wanted to cry again. Yin Ze stopped, lifted her face, and wiped the tears from her face. “Look at me.”
She looked at him, her eyes moist with tears with a pathetic look on her face. Yin Ze said. “Lift your head and raise your chest. You didn’t do anything wrong, why are you in a panic?”
Gao Yu Lan sucked her nose and straighten her back.
“Yes, that’s it. If you want to cry, wait until we’ve settled scores with that bastard first, do you understand?”
Gao Yu Lan nodded. Yin Ze led her towards the direction of the café. When they reached the café, they saw Hu Tian sitting in the corner settling his bill with the waitress.
He is still here! Good!
Yin Ze looked around, picked up an ice bucket on the service desk, and gave it to Gao Yu Lan. That bucket was half full of ice cubes and water. Gao Yu Lan took the ice bucket, looked down at it, and then raised her eyes to look at Yin Ze.
Yin Ze tilted his head in the direction of Hu Tian and said. “Go……do this yourself. You have to be brave and to deal with this type of scum, you must not be soft. Don’t be afraid, I am here.”
She clenched her teeth, carried the ice bucket in her hands, and walked towards Hu Tian. He had just paid the bill and the waitress had walked away. He had not stood up yet when he saw Gao Yu Lan who had left earlier, rushed over. Suddenly a bucket of water and ice cubes was emptied onto his head and Hu Tian screamed as the contents of the bucket came splashing down.
As she splashed him, she cursed. “You pervert, stinky rogue, beast, despicable……..”
Hu Tian reacted by shouting angrily and he jumped up. He was about to charge at Gao Yu Lan when he was hit on his face with a heavy fist. That punch was extremely heavy. Hu Tian was knocked over and landed on another table next to him. His eyes blurred, he felt his collar being pulled and was hit by another punch again. The second punch knocked him to the ground.
Someone started to scream and someone shouted for security. From a distance, two men wearing security uniforms were running towards them. Gao Yu Lan was so nervous that her heartbeat accelerated but Yin Ze was calm. He stepped forward and pulled up Hu Tian who was swearing and trying to fight back. Yin Ze said in a cold voice. “Listen up, I will not let you get away with this.”
Maybe it was because Yin Ze had a strong aura, Hu Tian froze and did not respond momentarily. Yin Ze shoved him away then turned around and holding Gao Yu Lan’s hand, they left.
Gao Yu Lan looked back and saw the two security men helping Hu Tian to get up and did not know what they were talking about. She became worried and said. “Will he tell the security to catch us? Will he make a police report?”
“No, he won’t.” Yin Ze said calmly. “He thought you were easy to bully and in the end, you brought someone back to hit him. He doesn’t know exactly who is backing you and on top of that, he is guilty. He won’t dare to publicize this matter. As for the hotel, they will try to cover up this incident to save their image.”
As he spoke, he led Gao Yu Lan to the car. All along the way, nobody came up to stop them or chase after them and Gao Yu Lan felt a little relaxed. The car started and quickly they left the place.
Outside the car window, the street lights were on and the neon lights lighted up the whole city. This is a bustling city and even the night view is very beautiful. Gao Yu Lan thought of what Hu Tian had said – – If you cannot play around, don’t come out to mix around. Don’t act shamelessly when given face. This is A-city and the reality in this world is very cruel. Do you think if you are willing to strip, someone will be willing to mount? Go back to the countryside and wait to drink northwest wind, you bitch!”
This is A-city. Gao Yu Lan felt like crying again. Initially, if she had been a little braver, she would not have come to A-city and would not have to experience so much unhappiness. She was too naïve and she had thought this city is a wonderful place.
“Do want to go for some food?” Yin Ze, who was looking ahead, stole a glance at her and saw her silently wiping her tears.
Gao Yu Lan shook her head and said in a choked-up voice. “I don’t feel like eating.”
“Shall I take you for a ride?” He asked again. This time she nodded her head. She really did not want to go home now and just wanted someone to keep her company.
Yin Ze did not speak and only drove around in circles but the scenery outside the car window kept changing. Gao Yu Lan was in a daze and after a long time, she finally realized they had left the city.
“Where are we going?”
“Taking you somewhere to sell you off.” Yin Ze answered cheekily.
She rubbed her eyes and said. “I don’t believe you.”
“Still crying? Are your eyes blinded yet? Can you still able to see my handsome face?”
She smiled and said. “You are so annoying.”
The car finally stopped. Yin Ze leaned over, carefully examined her face, and seriously said. “Let me see…..ah……your eyeballs are still intact, your tears have not washed them away…..ah..…your nose is still here, your tears have not washed it away…….your mouth is still here………”
She giggled with amusement……this ruffian is really hateful! She smiled continuously and stretched out her hands to push him but Yin Ze did not give up and still wanted to look at her eyes. The two people jostled and got entangled with each other. Gao Yu Lan gave a hard push and suddenly felt a touch of warmth on her lips. It seemed she had touched something soft.
Both of them stiffened. Yin Ze abruptly sat back with his hand over his mouth and threw a coy look at her. “Hateful, why did you steal a kiss from me?”
She instantly froze like a statue.
