Boss Level Face-Slapping Specialist [Quick Transmigration] - Chapter 65
Xu Zifan then posted another Weibo at that opportune moment, saying that he has hired the best lawyer in the capital to sue Xu Maotong for killing his grandfather and grandmother.
Although it has been 23 years and the prosecution period has passed, it was a serious criminal case, and it had become phenomenal, known to all. After being examined by the First Level Court, they decided to accept it.
At this point, of course, there was no one to speak for Xu Maotong. It was easy for the public to assume that the lawsuit was rightful when it goes to court, not to mention that the description in the long article posted online already made people suspicious of Xu Maotong. Even before investigations have begun, no one took his side.
Xu Zifeng, Liang Yujie, and Xu Maotong were involved in one incident after another, and Xu Maotong’s will even left the Xu Group to Xu Zifeng. Since all of them had lost their reputations, and may even be involved in a crime, the Xu’s stock price finally began to fall sharply!
Xu Zifan posted another Weibo: [I have reminded everyone before that people owning Xu’s stocks should sell as soon as possible. It’s not too late to avoid losing more.]
As soon as Xu Zifan said this, people started to sell their shares urgently, causing the Xu’s stock price to fall again.
Xu Maotong thought he had a good chance of winning, but it had become like this after only a day. At that time, his face was flushed with anger, his veins stood out violently, his heart beat fast. Suddenly, it felt very difficult to breathe! He clawed his chest as he felt the pain inside. Xu Zifeng frantically patted the bedside bell, turned and rushed out the door and shouted for help. Behind him, Xu Maotong had fainted, his lips purple!
Several experts and doctors ran into the ward to give Xu Maotong first aid, and told Xu Zifeng that it was an induced heart attack. There are many causes of the disease, namely fear and anger, insomnia, staying up late, long-term depression, stress, and so on. What more, Xu Maotong had all of these. The body itself was already prone to such problems at an old age, so he really shouldn’t get easily angry in the future, and he must recuperate.
When Xu Maotong woke up, he couldn’t accept that there was something wrong with his body. Then, he was then asked by the police who came to investigate what happened in that year, whether he had any alibi, and so on. He tried his best to calm his emotions, but he still felt stuffy and very uncomfortable. At the same time, he was very frightened. Xu Zifan must have exposed him, but how did he come to know of it? How much does he know? Does anyone else know?
Before he could provide a statement, several directors of the Xu Company went to the company together and proposed to dismiss Xu Maotong as chairman. He had seriously damaged Xu’s interests. If Xu Maotong disagreed, they would ignore Xu Group’s plight and sell their shares!
Xu Maotong was indignant at their persecution. However, when the tiger falls on a flat plane, the dogs will bully. Even though he was usually a monolith at Xu, he now had to compromise with the directors. However, he made a request. He conceded with the board to hire a professional manager, but Xu Zifeng must be allowed to follow the professional manager around and handle company affairs together.
(TNote: when the tiger falls on a flat plane, the dogs will bully/ [hǔ luò píng yáng bèi quǎn qī] 虎落平阳被犬欺= A man who loses position and influence may be subjected to much indignity from smaller people.)
The two sides bargained, but due to Xu Maotong’s brilliant deeds in developing the Xu family in the past, several directors hesitated to agree. They were planning to redeem themselves one last time. After all, Xu is a giant. They have been directors for decades, and have been at the Xu Company since Xu Maotong’s father’s generation. So, they were not going to give it up easily, but if they can’t salvage it this time, then they were really going to pull out and leave.
Xu Maotong shoved Xu Zifeng in just to find a puppet for himself, so that he could control Xu’s movements through Xu Zifeng, which was equivalent to holding the Xu Company in his hand. Since the police haven’t found any strong evidence for the time being, they didn’t bring Xu Maotong in. They only restricted him from going abroad, and they asked him to assist in the investigation whenever necessary. By then, Xu Maotong would continue to be hospitalized because of his heart disease. His whitewashing plan was destroyed again, and this time he would never be clean again!
After that, Xu Zifan came to the hospital to see him, his bodyguards in tow. Upon seeing him, Xu Maotong threw the flower vase that was next to his bed, but then saw the vase he threw out of anger being kicked by a bodyguard. The shattering sound made his heart jump a few times. He quickly took a deep breath to calm his emotions.
Xu Zifan smiled and said, “Chief Xu looks much better than I thought, and even has the strength to throw things around. It is really true that ‘good people don’t live long, but a scourge lasts a thousand years’.”
(TNote: good people don’t live long, but a scourge lasts a thousand years = good people don’t live long, but evil people are hard to kill/ suffer longer amongst the living.)
“You! You bastard! Are you here to laugh at me?!”
Xu Zifan looked at the attendants and secretary beside him, pulled up a stool and sat down. He then said seriously, “Why do you always misunderstand me? I’m obviously only telling the truth! Although the police haven’t found actual evidence, don’t you know what you’ve done wrong? Don’t you often have trouble sleeping because you’re afraid someone will come after you in the middle of the night?”
“That’s enough! Xu Zifan, do you think you are so smart that everyone can figure it out? Don’t forget, you were born to me, and I’ve eaten more salt than you’ve ever walked!”
Xu Zifan said in surprise, “Then why aren’t you dead yet?!!”
Xu Maotong turned blue and smiled angrily. Staring at him, he spoke word for word, “I am unwell and miss my wife very much. Secretary Wang, take someone to move Chu Wen to my ward. I want to be with my wife. If anyone dares to stop it, please ask the court for a ruling.”
Xu Zifan isn’t the only one who could use the courts to make a point. He could too. He was the legal husband of Chu Wen. Even if Xu Zifan was the son of Chu Wen, he can’t separate him from Chu Wen. This was his legal right. He waited to see Xu Zifan’s expression change, he just wanted to take hold of Xu Zifan’s weak point and see how this traitor could still jump around.
Who knew that Xu Zifan would smile? His face did not change at all. He said, “Does Chief Xu know that there is a saying ‘no work no death’? I’m actually still very filial, and I really want you to live a long time, but why don’t you cherish it and have to go looking for death instead?”
(TNote: No work no death = Chinese internet meme, it means ‘asking too much for trouble’/ ‘asking to get killed.)
Xu Maotong narrowed his eyes and grimly stated, “You’re threatening me? What big wind and big waves have you seen? You’re still just a brat, why would I be afraid of you?”
Xu Zifan shrugged and stood up. “In fact, you can never win at my hands. You still think I am inferior to you. Are you blind?” He came forward and looked at Xu Maotong’s face carefully, shaking his head, tutting. “it doesn’t look like a fool’s face… How can it be so stupid? Tell me, if you had lived with my Mom wholeheartedly and raised a good son like me, would you wake up smiling from your dreams? Unfortunately, you only have nightmares now.”
Xu Maotong raised his hand to cover his heart, and his expression became more and more ugly. He pointed to him and gritted his teeth and said, “Get him out! Don’t let him in again! Go! Make him leave!”
Xu Maotong was short of breath. Even though he paid attention to his health and told himself not to be angry, he couldn’t help getting enraged under Xu Zifan’s tauntings. His eyes had already blacked out.
Xu Zifan saw and laughed. “Really sick. It’s really funny, I have to go back and give everyone a bonus.” He didn’t wait for Secretary Wang to drive him away, as he went out with his hands in his pockets, humming a tune, followed by four bodyguards like a noble young master. Xu Maotong was increasingly aging and weak.
Xu Maotong was so excited that he fainted. The ward was in chaos again. The doctor couldn’t help but sigh, “If this continues, the situation won’t be optimistic. I hope Mr. Xu can pay attention to his health, and don’t harm his own life because of other things.”
Besides, even if he wanted to let go of his past now, he couldn’t. Xu Zifan wouldn’t leave him be, and the Xu Group hasn’t dealt with yet. He has no choice but to hire two more senior nurses to observe his situation at all times.
Xu Zifan came home, and Chu Wen, who was being helped by doctors and bodyguards for rehabilitation, asked, “You’re back? Going to the clubhouse now?”
Xu Zifan shook his head, took off his coat, and walked over to replace a bodyguard that was helping Chu Wen. “I went to the hospital. I heard that Xu Maotong had a heart attack, so I went to see if it was true. Who knew he was so intolerant and easily provoked that he just passed out.”
Chu Wen smiled, feeling relieved, “He really got what he deserved. The heavens won’t let him go.”
Xu Zifan laughed without saying a word, thinking that it was none of heaven’s business, and it was the result of him doing his best to annoy someone for months on end. He held Chu Wen as she took a few steps, and asked the doctor next to him, “Doctor Lin, how is my mother recovering? All right?”
Dr. Lin smiled. “Ms. Chu has recovered very well. She can now stand alone and walk short distances. She also has no problem traveling in a wheelchair. However, I suggest that the time for going out early on should be kept brief, and then extended slowly over a prolonged period, to allow Ms. Chu to suitably adapt to the exertion. She can comfortably sit on the balcony and bask in the sun too. There is basically no problem with her vocal cords. Although the tone is definitely different from back then, it won’t affect normal speech. Just be careful not to shout too loudly.”
Dr. Lin thought for a while, and said, “”Yesterday, Ms. Chu didn’t receive nutritional fluids, but switched to infant rice paste and vegetable puree. At the moment, she is adjusting well. In the future, children’s complementary food and teenagers’ nutrition can be gradually increased, and she can eat normally in about a month.”
Xu Zifan looked at Chu Wen happily. “Mom, that’s great! You can live a normal life soon!”
Chu Wen smiled and nodded. “It’s all thanks to Dr. Lin.”
Dr. Lin quickly said, “I wouldn’t dare to take credit for it. It’s because Ms. Chu has a strong will to live, and that Young Master Xu has also provided the best medical conditions and created a medical miracle.”
“Everyone owns credit in this. Today, we have double the happiness and bonus, available for everyone!” Xu Zifan hugged Chu Wen and spoke with a smile, “Mom, when you get better, I’ll take you to Xu Maotong, to hit him in the face yourself! Beat him as hard as you can, and then send him to jail after that to vent your anger.”
“Okay. ” Chu Wen smiled as her eyebrow twitched. She has been a vegetative person all these years, with her metabolic rate regressed. Now, after being fed every day with the best nutrient solution, the best care, at 50 years old, she was looking like she was in her early 40s. She looked like a well-mannered noble lady, standing there.
Standing next to her, Dr. Lin glanced twice and couldn’t help but sigh. Even if Liang Yujie worked hard for another 20 years, she was completely inadequate in the face of Chu Wen.
Originally, the newly awakened Chu Wen was still resentful and a bit gloomy. But these days, Xu Zifan repeatedly made trouble for Xu Maotong, and helped Chu Wen vent her anger. Chu Wen’s heart gradually unraveled, wholeheartedly relying on her son and regaining her original personality.
He could see that she had a really vibrant personality, one who is kind and caring. Moreover, she hadn’t been exposed to the outside world all these years. She hadn’t experienced anything, and was still young at heart as she had been before when she was 27 at the time of the accident. He could almost see her appearance back then through her now. He really didn’t understand why Xu Maotong didn’t like such a good wife, and had to find a little mistress with such a cunning heart.
After helping Chu Wen with her rehabilitation training, Dr. Lin went back downstairs and checked his emails routinely. Seeing that a famous foreign hospital invited him to take up his post in the past, he paused. He then thought about it carefully for a long time, and finally declined.
He was very satisfied with his current job. Chu Wen was the most amazing patient he had ever met since he started his career. She had strong willpower, strong desire for survival and unmatched tenacity to recover. He didn’t plan to conduct professional research on Chu Wen, but at least being a private doctor for Chu Wen had greatly inspired him to further explore the unknown field of medicine.
He wasn’t short of money. At the beginning, he submitted his resume to the big hospital in order to advance in the medical field. However, now that he had found a more suitable one, he certainly couldn’t change jobs. Thinking of Chu Wen, he took off the flat gold-rimmed glasses and slowly wiped them. The corners of his mouth subconsciously rose. He really wondered how much potential was left in this amazing woman, and whether he would find even greater surprises when she returned to her normal life in the future. Perhaps, she would really be the greatest miracle in the history of comatose recovery.
