The Rich Man's Life - Chapter 38
Chapter 38 – Retaliation
Wei Xiong’s such a stir not only disturbed Ma Dong, but also affected others…
As soon as Zhou Jian returned home drunk after a fun time with his gang of friends, he saw his old man Zhou Dalu sitting on the sofa with a gloomy face, he was frightened, he felt a chill go down his spine. Zhou Jian woke up from his stupor, and said, “How are you doing, dad? What’s up?”
Zhou Dalu glanced at Zhou Jian, hiding his killing intent behind his smiling eyes, he said in a kind tone: “The Mercedes-Benz you bought last time was pretty good, and now it’s the face of the company. It’s really worth the money.”
‘Of all things he had to bring up, why Mercedes Benz?’, Zhou Jian immediately sensed that the situation wasn’t good. He snuck a glance at Zhou Dalu’s expression and probed, “Mn, that latest Benz is indeed not bad, and the price was still affordable…..”
“Huh…”, watching Zhou Jian’s guilty look, Zhou Dalu’s smile broke into a distressed expression, it was more than a million, a brand new store could’ve been opened with that much money, but it was given away by his prodigal son…
“It’s really not that expensive. Buying a Mercedes-Benz for 3 million is unique in Luzhou! The son of Zhou Dalu is really domineering, and he threw 3 million away without even batting an eye!”
Zhou Jian’s brain went blank after hearing the words “three million”, and there was only one thought left in his mind, it was over!
He racked his brains and couldn’t figure out how the old man knew about this. At the same time, he was lucky to say, “Dad, what three million? It’s 1.6 million…”
Seeing that he wasn’t ready to give up yet, Zhou Dalu picked up an orange from the coffee table and threw it over. Zhou Jian was so frightened that he ran around, “Dad, if you have something to say just say it, why are you being so violent?”
Zhou Dalu trembled with anger, gritted his teeth and said: ” Why? I really want to strangle you, you idiot, you’ll bankrupt me sooner or later, all of Laozi’s hard-earned money would be wasted by you! See if I don’t break your leg today…”
After the chickens fly and dogs jump, Zhou Dalu was too tired, and finally pointed to Zhou Jian’s nose and said, “From tomorrow onwards you are degraded to the post of store manager. Don’t even think about getting a penny from me if you can’t earn it yourself, I won’t care even if you starve to death!” [TLN: Chicken fly and dog jump = A messy scene]
Zhou Jian didn’t dare to refute, he just endured and felt aggrieved!
‘Who was so laid-back to shoot some random strangers and post the video online? ! There’s also Ma Dong, that dog thing, he is so unlucky, he had pitted himself!’
Dai Anqi hadn’t slept well for several days, since the day she came to know that Ma Dong won 200 million yuan, she regretted it everyday! ‘How could I even think that his luck is bad?’
When she learned that Ma Dong owed 400,000 debt for his father’s treatment, Dai Anqi was shaken. When she heard that Ma Dong had offended the vice president at the branch, she was even more disappointed…
‘I thought I found someone with good conditions, but I didn’t expect it to be a big lie. What’s even more terrifying is that if his old man isn’t cured and is paralyzed for life in the bed, she wouldn’t be able to live in the future!’
At that time, the most fortunate thing in her heart was that she kept a hold of the bottom line and stepped on the brakes in time. But before she could celebrate, Ma Dong began to counterattack all the way…
It’s fine to be promoted to deputy director. You can bear it, but you can’t bear it if they win the 200 million prize!
But because of the quarrel at the marketing department before, Dai Anqi was hesitant to contact Ma Dong, but fate didn’t wait for her to speak. It was revealed that Ma Dong was together with a little vixen on the Internet!
‘It’s worth a try! How dare she hook up with my boyfriend so openly! Shameless!’
Fiercely swearing for countless times, Dai Anqi decided not to look at her face anymore, especially when she saw that Zhang Mengmeng was holding several Dior shopping bags in the photo, her heart was dripping blood! ‘This was all my own money, how could I let a vixen spend it!’
She directly dialed Ma Dong’s phone, and soon there was an impatient voice on the other end, “Huh, what do you want from me?”
Dai Anqi nearly choked, if this was before, she would have cursed a few times before hanging up immediately.
But now her voice softened and she said softly: “Brother Dong, are you okay? I read the news on the Internet, they are saying bad things about you…”
“It’s okay, I’m fine, is there anything else? I’m very busy now, if not I’ll hang up…”
Dai Anqi felt aggrieved! When has she ever been treated in such an aggressive tone by a man? But today’s Ma Dong was no longer the Ma Dong of yesterday. She could only continue to pretend to be gentle and considerate: “I’m just afraid that you will be mad, are you free now? let’s go out to eat…”
Ma Dong was silent for a while, and when Dai Anqi was about to despair, she heard Ma Dong say, “Well, I’ll wait for you at the crazy grilled wings shop next to the previous dormitory. See you in half an hour!”
After speaking, Ma Dong hung up the phone. Dai Anqi felt sore and uncomfortable listening to the beep of the mobile phone. She was really cheap! If it was…
It was too late to say anything now, it depended on whether she could make up for the distance between the two…
Suddenly it occurred to her that she would meet him in half an hour. Dai Anqi hurriedly changed into her favourite set of clothes, went downstairs and stopped a taxi and rode away, putting on makeup in the car all the way, attracting the driver frequently. He took a peek and thought, ‘Such a beautiful girl is in such a hurry to put on makeup. She must be going on a date. I really envy…’
Ignoring the old driver’s lustful eyes, Dai Anqi walked into the crazy grilled chicken wings shop with twenty yuan.
Looking at the small shop she was familiar with, Dai Anqi was in a daze. This was the place where she and Ma Dong came to dine often, but she hasn’t been here for a long time…
Seeing that Ma Dong hadn’t arrived yet, Dai Anqi found a small private room to take a break, and waited for seven or eight minutes, when she finally saw a familiar yet unfamiliar back.
A sweet smile suddenly appeared on Dai Anqi’s calm face, and she shouted: “Brother Dong, I am here…”
Hearing Dai Anqi’s voice, Ma Dong snickered, and then laughed. ‘This woman is really something. If I remember correctly, this should be the first time she had arrived earlier whenever we went on a date…‘ [TLN: This is not a date.]
With a different mindset, Ma Dong walked into the private room and looked at the well-dressed Dai Anqi. He couldn’t help but sigh that this woman did have a proud capital.
The face value was good and the figure was also good, a white-collar worker in a bank who graduated from the bachelor degree exudes a kind of confidence and pride, but today this aura was well covered up, Ma Dong smiled and joked: “I haven’t seen you in a few days. You are getting more and more beautiful…”
Listening to Ma Dong’s words of praise, Dai Anqi smiled sweetly and regained a little confidence in her charm.
While waiting for the dishes, Dai Anqi kept asking about Ma Zhicheng’s condition, and her concern was overwhelming. Ma Dong was moved…
Then she started to ask about Ma Dong’s situation again, implying she cared, “Brother Dong, I have also seen what President Pang said on the news. Wouldn’t such negative news affect you?”
Ma Dong smiled indifferently, “How big could it be? In the afternoon, Zhang Hongjun informed me that I am getting detained for inspection, so I can take a rest for a while…”
Dai Anqi frowned slightly, but soon she was relieved. How much is the deputy director of the marketing department worth? Ma Dong was now a millionaire!
Thinking of this, Dai Anqi smiled and said feeling relieved: “It’s true, the deputy director doesn’t have much money for a year, and he gets tired to death…”
Ma Dong shook his head and said nothing more, “What do you want to drink tonight?”
Dai Anqi didn’t pay attention to it, and said casually: “I’ll have some juice.”
Ma Dong smiled and shook his head, “We must celebrate the happy events recently and have a drink!”
Dai Anqi thought about it, and nodded in agreement. Ma Dong called the waiter and asked, “Hey bro, do you have Maotai here? A bottle please.”
The waiter was taken aback. He really had seen this person here who was going to drink Moutai several times. Before he could speak, Dai Anqi said, “Brother Dong, I don’t drink white wine. Let’s drink some red wine…”
As a petty white-collar woman, Dai Anqi liked the taste of red wine so she was fine with the red wine. As for white wine, she never touched it…
However, Ma Dong didn’t plan to be obedient today, and he directly asked the waiter: “Get a bottle of Moutai first.”
Dai Anqi still wanted to refuse, but Ma Dong’s face sank, and he said in a slightly angry voice: “Today I’ll celebrate and you’ll listen to me. It’s the first time for everything. Drinking Moutai will not be a problem!”
When Dai Anqi saw Ma Dong’s unquestionable majesty for the first time, her heart trembled, and she changed her words just at the tip of her lips, “That… Well, I won’t drink much since this is my first time…”
Ma Dong was noncommittal, and when the wine came up, Ma Dong poured a small glass for Dai Anqi, “Cheers! Congratulations to Ma Dong for turning over this glass!”
Seeing that Ma Dong was all ready, Dai Anqi gritted her teeth while watching the small cup of white wine and drank it whole. Suddenly, a hot sensation stretched from her throat to her stomach, her face flushed.
Ma Dong gave her a glass of water and said with a smile: “I was the same when I drank the white wine for the first time. You’ll be fine later…”
Dai Anqi patronized drinking water, but didn’t see the strange expression on Ma Dong’s face. The two of them ate and chatted for a while. She felt a little dizzy. Ma Dong poured her another glass. “Here’s another cup. You have brought me good luck!”
Ma Dong said that she wouldn’t be able to drink it, but this cup of stomach was not as spicy as the first cup…
The rest was simple, anyway, after the sip of the small cup, Dai Anqi couldn’t sit still and within half an hour, everything was in a semi-fuzzy state.
Ma Dong once again called the waiter to settle the bill, one thousand yuan, mainly for wine…
Seeing Ma Dong sitting on the Mercedes Benz with his arms around a beautiful girl, the waiter swallowed his saliva in envy, sighed and started to clean the table.
“Huh? There is so much Maotai left?!”
The waiter who saw half a bottle of Maotai shook his eyelids. ‘The big dogs don’t treat Maotai as alcohol!’ He put the bottle away and started to clean up the leftovers on the table casually…
Dai Anqi leaned in Ma Dong’s arms and grumbled, “Brother Dong, where are we going?”
“To a hotel…”
Dai Anqi fell asleep after humming…
He opened a room in the Sheraton Hotel, Ma Dong rudely tore off her clothes, her eyes were flushed, Ma Dong was very frustrated recently. In addition, facing his Ex-girlfriend Dai Anqi, he just wanted to vent a lot!
Accompanied by bursts of pain and pleasure, Ma Dong laughed freely…
Nobody knew how long it took, but when Dai Anqi regained her consciousness, she couldn’t even cry. There was only a faint grunt.
Dai Anqi lay on the bed, staring at the window with blank eyes. She had woken up after drinking, and her brain had resumed thinking. She also understood…
If she was still confused at this time, she would really be an idiot!
She thought that it was just a quarrel with Ma Dong, but now she finally understood that he was taking his revenge…
She was so silly to come and knock on his door, still dreaming of being a wife of a wealthy man. Now that she woke up from her dream, she saw her torn underwear and clothes all over the floor, she couldn’t even cry…
Listening to the sound of shower in the bathroom, countless thoughts turned in her mind, but they were all in vain…
Damn, I never expected the story to turn out this way Oof.
