Xu Wei covered her face. To have been inexplicably beaten, she was burning with rage inside. She immediately tried to fight back, but when she looked up she saw the Xu Jia who was in tears, she was stunned.
Xu Jia took off her coat and suddenly knelt down, “Sister.”
She hugged her and wept bitterly. “Sister, I was wrong before. I shouldn’t have done that to you, but isn’t it enough for me to get what I deserve? Jiang Haoyan locked me in a psychiatric hospital, beating me with a whip dipped in saltwater and hitting me with a soldering iron every now and then. It’s been 6 years, even if I committed the most heinous crimes, that should have been enough, no?”
“Elder Sister, Grandpa died. It was Jiang Haoyan who forced him to his death. Mom and Dad disappeared, they were forced to go abroad by debt collectors, and now there’s no news of them.”
“Elder Sister, I only have you as a relative…”
Xu Jia’s psychological tactics were played to perfection. The series of preemptive remarks made Xu Wei blame herself as she felt guilty and felt sorry for Xu Jia, thus in almost no time, the hurtful pages of the past had been removed.
Xu Wei shed tears along with her, hugging Xue Jia back while constantly comforting her.
Xu Nan, who was watching, was dumbfounded.
So it was true that there were people beyond people and mountains beyond the mountains. He could be considered to have seen it today.
(TNote: people beyond people and mountains beyond the mountains = there are always people better than you.)
Xu Wei cried for a long time with Xu Jia in her arms, then the two sisters finally sat down and had a good talk. Xu Jia showed her whole wounded body to Xu Wei and bitterly said to the other, “Elder Sister, you must never forgive that bastard Jiang Haoyan!”
“Mom, that’s Dad!” Xu Nan stared at Xu Jia angrily. “Mom, don’t you love Dad?”
Xu Jia stared back. “Elder Sister, children are not sensible and don’t know right from wrong! Don’t you want to take revenge for Grandpa’s, Dad’s, and our company’s bankruptcy?”
“Mom, Dad is still waiting for you in prison.”
“Elder Sister, aren’t you afraid that Grandpa wouldn’t be able to rest in peace?”
“That’s enough! Stop arguing. I want to be left alone.”
Xu Wei yelled in pain. She didn’t understand why everyone had to force her. It wasn’t as if this was all caused by her!
Xu Wei rushed out of the door. She needed to be alone. She couldn’t stand it anymore.
Xu Wei came to the riverside and cried bitterly, then called Lu Ze.
It has been 6 years, she had become accustomed to relying on this ‘Elder Brother’. Once something goes wrong, she would instinctively look for him.
Xu Wei knew that Lu Ze had blocked her number, so this time she sent a voice message.
After a while, the call was connected.
Xu Wei burst into tears with excitement, “Ah Ze, thank you for taking my call.”
When the word ‘thank you’ came out of Xu Wei’s mouth, Lu Ze had to sigh. Indeed, Xu Wei began to change.
“Speak,” Lu Ze said lightly.
Xu Wei explained the disagreement between Xu Jia and Xu Nan intermittently, then asked with difficulty, “Ah Ze, what do you think I should do?”
Lu Ze: “…”
Suddenly, he didn’t know where to start.
Xu Jia was the chief culprit who framed Xu Wei, got her r*ped, almost caused her to miscarry, while also forcing her to go to jail. The other justified slapping her then cried, and Xu Wei actually got over it.
She just got over it!
Xu Nan, as a son, saw that his mother had been slapped. Not only were there no ripples in his heart, but he didn’t even say anything. Was he worthy of being called Jiang Haoyan’s son?
There was no sound from Lu Ze’s side for a while, so Xu Wei prompted, “Ah Ze?”
Lu Ze drank a mouthful of tea. “Since you can’t find a solution, then let them solve it on their own.”
“You’re in a dilemma now, so take a step back and find a place to quietly stay for a few days. Maybe things will work themselves out.”
Of course, with you, the only one who can turn things around, gone, Jiang Haoyan would definitely go to jail.
Lu Ze silently added in his heart.
“Then where should I go?”
“Send me the address and I’ll have someone come pick you up later.”
“Okay. Thank you, Ah Ze.”
After hanging up the phone, Lu Ze called Shen Xiaohuai and told her to drive to the riverside and pick Xu Wei up. Then take Xu Wei to Tibet to sign up for a local tour for a month, put it as a company expense.
Shen Xiaohuai, who was taking a bath: “Chief Lu, it’s after work hours.”
“Salary plus 20%.”
“Chief Lu, I’ll do it right away!”
Soon, Xu Wei disappeared again. Xu Jia couldn’t find her, Xu Nan couldn’t find her, and Jiang Haoyan couldn’t find her either.
A court hearing followed. With the overwhelming evidence, the court sentenced Jiang Haoyan to one year.
Lu Ze: “…”
How could he forget to inquire about the difference between the laws of this world and the real world?
One year for such a big crime??
Jiang Haoyan went to jail, so the position of Jiang group’s CEO naturally fell into the hands of Second Uncle Jiang. Then Xu Jia went to visit him in prison.
Inside the visiting room, separated by transparent glass.
Xu Jia was wearing makeup, and she smiled at Jiang Haoyan. She had already rehearsed countless scenes of condescendingly taunting him in her dreams.
Even the opening line, “The wheel of fortune changes. Chief Jiang also has his day. ” Her tone of voice, she’d practiced it all a million times.
But when Xu Jia really saw Jiang Haoyan, she couldn’t say anything at all.
“Ha, ha, ha, ha. Ha, ha, ha, ha!”
She patted the window and laughed.
“Shut up!” The fat Jiang Haoyan ordered with a toothy grimace.
“Sorry, I didn’t want to laugh. I just couldn’t help it.” Xu Jia was in tears from all the laughter. “Is the food in prison so good? Are you a pig? How many kilograms are you now? Are you taking hormones? I really want Xu Wei to see your greasy appearance and see if she can still love you now.”
“Shut up!” Jiang Haoyan tried to pose as the CEO he once was, but his neck and face had become fat, so it was too ridiculous to try to raise his chin and pretend to be overbearing.
Xu Jia couldn’t stop laughing. “Chief Jiang, it’s only been a month. You’ve gained three or four hundred pounds. When you come out a year later, won’t you become a ball?”
“I’m going to kill you!” Jiang Haoyan threatened while gnashing his teeth.
Xu Jia smashed her hands on the transparent bulletproof glass, and Jiang Haoyan was startled by the huge noise.
She instantly turned into a ghost from hell and threatened, “Jiang Haoyan, I will give you back everything you did to me a thousand times, a million times!”
After saying that, Xu Jia left.
Soon, there were many strange frictions and disputes in Jiang Haoyan’s prison, and he was implicated every time. He suffered numerous injuries, large and small, while Xu Nan was taken back to the Jiang family.
It was unknown how much of this was the work of Xu Jia and how much of it was the work of the rest of the Jiang family.
Lu Ze’s company now also has one new person, Chen Yin.
After Xu Wei was arranged to travel, the design department was short one person and started asking headhunters for referrals, then Chan Yin joined K Asia headquarters with the highest score.
After work, Lu Ze walked past the employees and had just walked less than a dozen feet out of the office when there was an uproar of gasps from behind him.
“See? That’s our Chief Lu! If you want money, he has money! If you want handsome, he has handsome!”
“Not only is he handsome, but he’s also Asia’s Fashion King and a well-known international figure!”
“Chief Lu, so handsome…”
Lu Ze: tired_heart_emoji.jpg
“616, explain what’s going on with this ostentatious air…”
616 answered positively and happily with a jingle, “You’ve become a male lead, Host, and that’s the style of this book. Of course, the male lead must be praised and boasted from time to time. Not only that but also must be admired by countless women and be everyone’s dream lover.”
Lu Ze: “I think you’re mocking me.”
“I didn’t!” 616 was very aggrieved. It was happy for the Host. The Host has become the male lead. The original male lead, Jiang Haoyan, was no match for the Host. In today’s world, male leads could do whatever they want, so they can complete the task soon! How nice!
“Your tone of voice is exposing you.”
“The ellipsis is exposing you.”
Half a month later, Jiang Haoyan secretly escaped, then the next day, Xu Wei came back.
Xu Wei, sporting a ponytail while wearing a plain t-shirt, overalls, and black high-top sneakers, seemed to be a different person after coming back.
Her snow-white and crystal-clear skin have turned into a healthy wheat color while a sunny smile would always be on her face.
Her exposed arms also had some shadows of muscles.
Lu Ze looked across the desk at Xu Wei as he turned into a statue.
“Chief Lu, I’m back!” Xu Wei gave Lu Ze a big bow, then bang! Her forehead smashed against the coffee cup on Lu Ze’s desk, spilling coffee all over the table and wetting a pile of papers.
Xu Wei seemed as if she didn’t feel the pain and was unable to see it. “Chief Lu, I sincerely apologize to you. I think I was too unreasonable before. I will work hard in the future and try to repay your kindness.”
Lu Ze: “Oh.”
“Then I’ll go to work, Chief Lu.”
Xu Wei turned around and slammed into the door again.
Lu Ze: “…”
“Host, wake up. Wake up!” 616 voices called out to the petrified Lu Ze.
Lu Ze pointed to the reckless woman who ran into three people, knocked over a coffee cup, and smashed a display shelf as soon as she went out. “This is the so-called female lead who is adjusted according to the preferences of the male lead?”
616 thought for a moment, “So that’s the kind of woman you like, Host…”
“Slander is a crime.”
“Oh, Host, don’t be embarrassed. If you don’t like such a woman, how could she automatically generate like that?”
“I’d rather someone like Shen Xiaohuai rather than Xu Wei,” Lu Ze said before he looked up. Shen Xiaohuai had just come in with coffee.
At this moment, Lu Ze felt that the world had collapsed.
