Scum Male’s Whitewashing Manual - Chapter 101
Wei Mingyan and Xuan Lele weren’t very famous at school, but many people know them because of their attractive appearances.
At first, everyone wasn’t optimistic of the two of them together.
As the saying goes, this society needs either love or bread. In everyone’s eyes, when they are together, they want love and lost bread.
(TNote: love or bread = either choose romance or money/ it’s like they saying you can’t live off of love alone.)
Despite their appearance, it so happened that both sides have the dilemma of poverty, so either they would drag each other down or their love will disappear with the passage of time.
Then one day, Wei Mingyan showed up at school with a car that didn’t appear too flashy, but it was definitely not cheap.
Was he kept by a rich woman?
This was the first reaction from the people that knew him.
But then, another person came down from the car.
It was Xuan Lele, who was holding her new fancy handbag, smiling ever so sweetly.
This happened because Grandma Xuan got admitted to the hospital, and the two of them visited her almost every day. Although they weren’t far away, it still took 20 minutes to walk over. In addition, it was rather inconvenient if they wanted to bring something with them, so Father Wei simply bought a car for his son to drive.
They had no cars at home, and any other they had now were all bought a long time ago, and they were flashy cars Father Wei used for business purposes, which wasn’t suitable for students. On top of that, Wei Mingyan himself said that he didn’t like that style very much, so Father Wei simply bought him another one.
This car was very simple, which was suitable for Father Wei’s original intention to keep a low profile.
However, even this simple car, when coupled with Wei Mingyan, a well known poor guy in school, even if he kept appearing like a country bumpkin, he can’t keep a low profile anymore.
The first one to talk about it was Third Brother in Wei Mingyan’s dorm.
At that time, he happened to go to the canteen to buy food and came back. Just as he went out, Wei Mingyan, who lived in the dormitory, arrived in his car.
“Where did it come from?”
The good brothers were affectionate, and he didn’t say anything vague but just asked the question he had directly.
Wei Mingyan patted the front of the car, his expression still as gentle as before, “My Dad bought it.”
Old Third sucked in a breath of cold air and looked up and down at the man in front of him who was wearing an ordinary shirt and standing on a pair of discounted sneakers he bought himself.
Old Third was a fan of cars, and he was always up to date with the car magazines. Although this car wasn’t so flashy, it still couldn’t escape his eyes.
This guy tutted around the car, “I say, Mingyan… Your family didn’t win the lottery, did they?”
“What are you talking about? ” Wei Mingyan smiled helplessly and took his girlfriend’s hand. “I’ll send Lele back to her dormitory first, and I’ll tell you more later.”
Xuan Lele nodded and waved her hand at Old Third as usual, “See you later.”
The third roommate was still immersed in the news that the poorest brother in the dorm room had bought a luxury car, so he could only wave his hand, responding in a trance, “Bye, Sister-in-law.”
He had to tell the whole dormitory the hot news quickly.
For ordinary people, even if Mingyan’s family wanted to buy him a car with all their money, they wouldn’t have been able to raise that much money!
Xuan Lele’s bedroom was also very lively.
One of her roommates was lying on her bed, surfing the school forum when she received a text from her friend.
[Cai Cai, is this Xuan Lele in your dormitory?]
When the picture finished downloading, it displayed Xuan Lele standing next to Wei Mingyan, and they were talking with someone.
It was obvious, wasn’t it? That was her boyfriend standing next to her.
She didn’t understand what her good friend meant, so she asked.
As a result, the potato chips spilled all over the bed.
“Lele’s boyfriend drove back to school in a luxury car!”
She shouted out excitedly, so absentmindedly that all the people in the dorm who were putting on makeup or watching TV were tempted to look over.
“You see, my friend told me that he saw Wei Mingyan drive a luxury car to send Lele back to school, so people in their dormitory went up and asked him about it. Turns out, he said that his father bought it for him!”
“Come on, isn’t Lele’s boyfriend poor? The kind that can’t even afford a loaf of bread to eat.”
“If he really had money to buy a luxury car, why would he wear such cheap clothes? But, even though he had no money, he was nice to Lele and is a good man. “
“No, I’m serious, my friend would never lie to me.”
She found such a great piece of gossip that she immediately shared it with others, but then few people actually responded. She was hung up and didn’t feel good about it.
“Yang Qing, you have the best relationship with Lele. Did you notice anything in general?”
Yang Qing paused the TV series and sat up a little guiltily. “Well, actually I…”
“I’m back. ” Xuan Lele came in from the outside, put her bag on the table, and began to take the contents out. “I brought you all something to eat. Come on and eat quickly.”
She took out the delicious food she had brought, and was about to take a bite first when she noticed the silence around her.
Xuan Lele’s hand froze in mid-air and she slowly raised her eyes to her smiling roommate on the top bunk who then said, “Lele, is there something you’re not telling us?”
Yang Qing was looking at her friend’s expression that looked as if she didn’t know where to put her hands. Thus, she got up and took her to sit down. “Okay, okay, let me tell you the story. Lele’s boyfriend’s father is rich, but because Wei Mingyan is lowkey, no one came to know of it. Isn’t this just him and Lele meeting his father together? So just… you know…”
It took the two roommates a good once-over in their heads to realize what that meant.
No, Wei Mingyan was usually frugal and simple. He was actually a rich second generation?!
This was too fantastic!
The boys’ dorm, however, was not as harmonious as the girls’ dorm room, and Wei Mingyan now stood in the middle, with three of his roommates surrounding and condemning him.
“Dressing so modestly every day, even the things you use are old too. I’ve been wanting to go scrub a meal for a long time and didn’t dare to ask for it for fear of hurting your pride, but you’re actually so rich!”
“I mean, how do you manage to live your daily life in poverty?”
Wei Mingyan smiled a bit, “I’m poor, really. I saved all the money my Dad gave me and only spent my part-time money.”
“No, even if you don’t use the money your Dad gave you as dirt, the money from your part time jobs is enough to feed you well, right? We have lived together for such a long time, and the whole time, you ate steam buns and pickle vegetables three times a day. I thought you were forced to do it. Are you abusing yourself?”
“I’m not hungry anyway. Aren’t the buns delicious?”
“No, we have to strike a meal. Master Wei, will you buy dinner?”
“Please, please, please!” Wei Mingyan agreed, “How about going to that new hotel downtown?”
“Dude! That’s generous, but that hotel is new, though, and their prices are out of this world. My Dad went there last time and came back and bragged to my Mom all afternoon.”
“I’m heartbroken when I talk about this. At the beginning, in order to take care of this boy’s self-esteem, I tried to find a reason to invite him to dinner. I can’t just invite him alone every time. I needed to invite the whole dormitory together. But it turned out that this boy was a rich second generation.”
“Me too! It’s absolutely unbelievable. I also specially bought meat sauce for Mingyan to eat, afraid that he just eats steamed bread and didn’t receive enough nutrition. But now that I think about it, I’m really a dork…”
“And those snacks I shared…”
“But speaking of that, that hotel is very expensive. That’s not how you should spend your money, so why don’t we go to a kebab restaurant? I know one that’s delicious!”
Wei Mingyan smiled lightly, “It’s okay, there’s a discount at the hotel, and it doesn’t cost much.”
“Is there? I remember my Dad said that there was a discount on the first three days of opening. Are they doing the same thing again?”
“No, my dad owns the hotel.”
“… You’re lying!!!”
The news that Wei Mingyan wasn’t a poor boy but a rich second generation only spread in his circle of friends and Xuan Lele’s. There were only some rumors in school on the first day, but they soon calmed down.
After all, it was not like it’s super-hot news. Everyone was too busy taking exams to worry about it, anyways.
But for the people around them, this change was still very significant.
After that, Xuan Lele still took 1 hour to 2 hours every day to broadcast lessons. As for Grandma Xuan, her condition began to improve slowly. The doctor said that she could be discharged from the hospital after a period of treatment, and she could visit her grandmother for just a few minutes every day. Lucky for them, they didn’t have to face any financial burdens. Xuan Lele started smiling more and more every day. No one knew why, but she was happy, and she looked much more beautiful than before.
Alongside her, Wei Mingyan was also busy with his own live broadcast. He seemed to really regard this as his own career. Although he didn’t show his face, the number of fans still rose like a rocket.
He didn’t do advertisement plugs, he doesn’t talk nonsense, he just cooks new dishes every day and makes them for his girlfriend and himself. He doesn’t say anything about collecting money and asks for viewers to subscribe to them, and just calmly lets people watch as much as they like.
It’s just that people love him for his calmness, but they also love such a live broadcaster who had a sweet voice and concentrated on the study topics.
Just as the time came when Grandma Xuan could walk up and down stairs without help, a video suddenly began to circulate on the Internet.
In the video, a beautiful woman, who was still charming despite her age, was crying as she told the story of her past marriage. As she couldn’t stand the domestic violence, she filed for a divorce and was finally retaliated against.
In her story, she was young and still married to her ex-husband. As a result, her ex-husband didn’t think about making progress and he committed domestic violence against her. She had no choice but to escape from that violence at home. She then formed a family with her current husband, who did business and opened a hotel. But in the end, her ex-husband found out from somewhere that she had remarried, so he intentionally opened a hotel near their hotel, and also ordered people to cause trouble inside their hotel.
In the video, the woman was in tears, and showed the lobby of her current husband’s hotel, which was smashed to pieces and in disarray.
People were biased towards vulnerable people, especially those with good looks.
Father Wei was furious when he saw this video, because the woman in it was his ex-wife, and what he was most angry about was that this shameless woman smeared her own son in the video.
What disowned mother?! Arrogant and domineering, and spoiled by Father Wei? This portrayed Wei Mingyan as a ruthless dandy.
This was her own son!!
It can be seen that they prepared this well. As soon as the video spread online, it quickly spread throughout the whole network. Soon, someone picked out Father Wei’s hotel name and got the gossip.
“Yes, the Boss is very fond of his son. The last time, he received a phone call saying that his son wanted 200,000, and he immediately agreed.”
“I’ve never seen Boss’s son coming to the hotel. He must be spoiled, and he has a bad relationship with the Boss.”
All kinds of tabloids constantly appeared on the Internet, but the positive ones had no chance to be shown. Father Wei had never seen such a situation before, and was caught off guard, so he could only panic and look for solutions.
At this time, Ding Luxin finally revealed her ultimate goal.
She wanted to sue Father Wei for a lifetime of infertility as a result of his beating, and for hiring someone for destruction of property. The amount claimed was very substantial.
She is really infertile, and the injury she suffered was indeed during her divorce from Father Wei. China has always taken the issue of children seriously, not to mention the fertility of a mother, and with public opinion, Father Wei was in real danger this time.
Just as there was a lot of discussion on the Internet, a food anchor suddenly started a live broadcast.
