Secret Identity 781-800


Chapter 781

"Enough!"Old Mrs. Xiao's chest rose and fell in anger, staring at Ma Lan and scolding her, "You shrew, so what if the Xiao family is now down and out?Sooner or later, we still have a chance to make a comeback, and then your family, begging to think about going back to the Xiao family will be impossible."

      Xiao Changkun then hurriedly said to Ma Lan, "How can you talk to Mom like that?Hurry up and apologize to Mom!"

      Ma Lan frowned at Xiao Changkun and said coldly, "Have you forgotten how this old woman drove you out?It's time to turn to her again, do you treat her like a mother and she treats you like a son?"

      After saying that, Ma Lan pointed at Mrs. Xiao and said coldly, "Old woman, I beg you to figure out how miserable you are now, and still pretend with me?I'm telling you, if you get down on your knees right now and beg me to go back, I won't go back!What a shitty Xiao family, reduced to selling furniture to survive, who the hell wants to go back!"

      Old Mrs. Xiao was furious, pointed at Ma Lan's nose and said word for word, "Ma Lan, I have lived for so many years, you are the first person who dared to talk to me like that, remember what you said today, sooner or later, I will break your legs and make you kneel before me and kowtow in apology!"

      Mashi laughed scornfully, "Come on, just you?You want to break my legs even though you're old enough to be buried?Come, come, my leg is right here, if you can fight, try to break my leg?"

      As she spoke, Ma Lan really stuck her leg out and sneered at Old Madam Xiao with incomparable contempt.

      This could make Old Mrs. Xiao angry enough to really break Ma Lan's leg on the spot, making her dare to be so arrogant again.

      However, in front of Ye Chen's face, Old Madam Xiao didn't dare at all.

      She still remembered the scene when Ye Chen beat up a group of bodyguards by himself, causing her to still have heart palpitations.

      Xiao Hailong used to be arrogant, but now with Ye Chen here, he also didn't dare to let out a single fart in the middle of the day, and seeing his grandmother being insulted by Ma Lan, he didn't dare to go forward to help find a scene, so he could only hide behind an angry face.

      At this time, Xiao Chang Qian came back with that boss with a black face.

      As soon as he returned, he said to Old Mrs. Xiao, "Mom, let's go, their bid is too low!"

      That boss hurriedly said, "Buddy, one million one hundred thousand is really quite a lot, the material of your set of furniture is average, and it's aged and the damage is quite large, my price is already very fair, you can never get a higher price than this if you change to another place."

      Old Mrs. Xiao was already angry, and once she heard that the offer was only given for one hundred and ten million, she angrily scolded, "Only one hundred and ten million for such a good piece of furniture?You're too dark-hearted, aren't you?"

      That boss said helplessly, "I'm being honest with the price, if you don't believe me, go ask around again."

      Old Mrs. Xiao snorted and said to her family, "Go!Another one!I still don't believe it!"

      Xiao Changkun then hurriedly said, "Mom, why don't I give you 1.2 million and you can sell it to me, to be honest I'm quite attached to Dad's set of furniture."

      "You wish!"Old Mrs. Xiao gritted her teeth and said, "Even if I chopped and burned wood, I would never sell it to you!"

      After saying that, he waved to Xiao Chang Qian, "Go!"

      Xiao Changqian glared at Xiao Changkun and hurriedly accompanied the old lady to turn around and leave.

      Xiao Changkun looked at their backs and couldn't help but shake his head incessantly, exclaiming, "I never thought that the Xiao family would be reduced to selling off their possessions, that set of furniture was father's favorite before he died, it's a pity to sell it!"

      Xiao Choran knew that Dad was very sentimental about that set of furniture, but he still came up to comfort her and said, "Come on Dad, it's impossible for Grandma to sell that set of furniture to you with this temper, let's look at something else."

      "Hmm."Xiao Changkun sighed, whirled around and said to that guide, "I'll take another look, your Hainan material is too expensive to sell, the Burmese material has waited too long."




782

The guide nodded and said, "You can come back if you need to."

      Turning out, Old Mrs. Xiao's family was already gone.

      Xiao Changkun went to look at a few more stores that sold Huanghuali, but looking around, he didn't see any that he liked.

      Ma Lan was so anxious that she offered to buy the other furniture for the bedroom and dining room first, otherwise it was likely that the day's shopping would be in vain.

      Xiao Changkun also felt that it was not a good idea to look at it this way, so the family rolled over to the living room.

      Ma Lan chose a set of tens of thousands of beds for herself, Xiao Churan also chose a set of more than 10,000, and the wardrobe, dining table, storage cabinets and other furniture were soon all matched in the living room.

      Along with the home appliances that were needed, and other miscellaneous things all bought, a total of more than seven hundred thousand.

      If Xiao Changkun really buys a set of Huanghuali sofa with this money, there will be no money left, but if he buys a set of European style sofa, he will have at least one million left.

      So she repeatedly said beside Xiao Changkun, "Changkun ah, can't touch a suitable Huanghuali sofa, why don't we just buy a set of European style to use first, and when we have money later, wouldn't it be better for us to directly buy a set of three million Hainan saffron pear?"

      Xiao Changkun knew what she had in mind, so he said indifferently, "I don't need you to worry about what kind of sofa I'll buy, anyway, I've bought all the furniture for the bedroom, the dining room, and the entertainment room now, so it's enough for you."

      Ma Lan was so depressed that she blurted out, "Why are you so disobedient!You buy a set of ready-made sofas, that will be delivered to your door this afternoon, and tomorrow our family can happily move to a new home!However, if you continue to spend, this amount of money can't buy Hainan material, and you don't despise Burmese material, so how long will you have to spend?"

      Xiao Changkun was also a little hesitant all of a sudden.

      Over one million two hundred thousand, buying a yellow pear was indeed too high to be too low.

      If one continued to hesitate like this, it would definitely delay the normal use of the house after moving.

      If you buy a set of European-style sofas now according to what Ma Lan said, then it can be delivered this afternoon and you can move in tomorrow.

      Just as Xiao Changkun was hesitating, Ye Chen suddenly spoke up, "Dad, I think Old Lady Xiao will definitely contact you later."

      Xiao Changkun subconsciously asked, "Why?"

      Ye Chen smiled, "Because of the money!They definitely can't sell that set of furniture for more than a million and a turn around reckons that you gave the highest price, so they must still sell it to you."

      Ma Lan said despicably, "What are you talking nonsense?Didn't you listen to the old lady?We won't even sell it to us if we chop and burn wood!"

      "So what?"Ye Chen said indifferently, "They are at their poorest right now, Dad has an extra 100,000 yuan, this 100,000 yuan is a big amount for them, the old lady is such a smart person, surely she won't throw away this 100,000 yuan for nothing just for gambling."

      Lan Ma left her mouth, "Just you can isn't it?You think you can read a feng shui bluff and see through everything?From what I know of the old lady, if she can swallow this and sell us this furniture, I'll eat that furniture raw!"

      As soon as the words fell out, Xiao Changkun's phone suddenly rang, and he said in surprise, "It's Big Brother calling."

      After saying that, he hurriedly picked up the phone and connected.

      Xiao Changqian said in a cold voice on the other end of the phone, "You just said that 1.2 million wants this set of furniture, is it true?"






783

When Xiao Changkun heard this, he said excitedly, "Of course it's true, 1.2 million, I'll take it!"

      Xiao Changqian is angry, "Okay, since you really want it, put the money on mom's card and this furniture will be sold to you!"

      Xiao Changkun kept an extra eye out and said, "How about this, you deliver the furniture to Thomson, and I'll pay immediately after the furniture is unloaded."

      Xiao Changqian on the other side of the phone hesitated for a moment and spoke, "Okay, the stuff is in the car now, so it can be shipped over at any time."

      Xiao Changkun busily said, "That's fine, let's meet at Tomson Yippin!I'll meet you there!"

      After saying that, Xiao Changkun immediately hung up the phone and said excitedly, "Ye Chen, you guessed it right!They're willing to sell!"

      Ma Lan's expression suddenly became very ugly.

      Not only was what she had just said hit in the face by a phone call from Xiao Changqian, but more importantly, if Xiao Changkun used the 1.2 million to buy the old furniture, wouldn't his family be broke?

      Thinking of this, Ma Lan was extremely depressed, and the way she looked at Ye Chen was even more almost cannibalistic.

      Ye Chen didn't bother to pay attention to Ma Lan, he knew very well what Ma Lan wanted, so the more he let her not get it, the more interesting he found it.

      It just so happened that the family of four had also finished buying other furniture now, so Ye Chen drove his car and drove the family to Townsend Yippin.

      The villa of Thomson Yiyin has been completely completed, in addition to no furniture, the other everywhere is incomparably luxurious, the living room decorated splendidly, the whole ground is all natural marble polished out, like a mirror, let a person put in it, feel incomparably grand.

      When Ma Lan looked at the luxurious decoration, her pores were all stretched out, and she couldn't stop talking.

      Xiao Changkun was also inexplicably amazed, verbally lamenting, "The last time I came to see it, the decoration hadn't finished, and the living room was still covered with anti-scratch mats, so I couldn't see the details, but when I look again today, it's even more imposing than the palace!"

      Xiao Churan herself was in the renovation business, so she could see the cost of renovating this villa at a glance, she pulled Ye Chen aside and said in a low voice, "This renovation probably looks like it's going to be tens of millions, why is that Wang Zhenggang so generous?"

      Ye Chen said, "After all, he's a rich man, he's given away a villa of over 100 million, so what's a renovation of tens of millions of dollars."

      "Alright ......"Xiao Choran threw out her tongue and said, "It's the first time I've seen such a high-standard decoration of a residence, it's too scary."

      Ye Chen smiled without saying anything.

      In his head, he still had quite a few memories of his childhood in the Ye family.

      The Ye family mansion in his memories was many times more luxurious than this a decade or two ago.

      Just as Xiao Choran's family of three, marveling at the luxurious decoration of the villa, Xiao Changkun arrived at the entrance of the Townsend's villa, leading the truck that was carrying the goods.

      Xiao Changkun was overjoyed and hurriedly went out to direct the porters to move the Hainan Huanghuali furniture into the villa.

      Old Mrs. Xiao brought Xiao Changqian, Xiao Hailong, and Xiao Weiwei, got off the truck and looked around the courtyard, seeing that after the villa's courtyard was decorated out, it was all much more luxurious than before, and the four of them were simply suffering in their hearts.

      Because Xiao Chang Qian had to follow in to see how the furniture was being moved, he went in to the villa for a trip, and when he came out, his face was many times more ugly than before.

      Old Mrs. Xiao couldn't help but ask, "Chang Qian, how is the decoration inside?"

      "Hey ......"Xiao Chang Qian sighed, having a hard time saying, "I've never seen such lavish decorations!It's too dizzying!"

      "Yes?!"Old Mrs. Xiao came to her senses at once and said out of the blue, "I want to go in and take a look!"

      Xiao Hailong also had a desire to see the world, so he hurriedly said, "Grandmother, I'll help you!"

      Xiao Weiwei looked at this villa with incomparably complicated feelings.

      She was once the fiancĂ©e of Wang Yunfei, the son of the Wang family, and this villa, which belonged to Wang Zhenggang, Wang Yunfei's uncle, would have been a villa that she could not only visit often, but might even have lived in if she had married Wang Yunfei in the first place.





784


But now, the one who is going to live here is the one you have always despised and disliked, Xiao Chu Ran!

      Thinking of that, she couldn't help but say, "Grandma, I'm with you too!"

      After saying that, he quickly stepped forward to welcome the grandmother and his brother, Xiao Hailong, who was supporting her left and right.

      Grandparents and grandchildren stepped into the living room, looking at the splendid and carved decoration, marveling that they couldn't even speak.

      Above the living room was an oversized picket over ten meters high, and in the center hung an incomparably large and extremely luxurious golden crystal lamp, the light refracted through the crystal, colorful and simply beautiful to the point of suffocation!

      Old Mrs. Xiao was standing in the living room, both of her legs shivering.

      Her own family's villa, if compared to this place, would be a huge latrine!

      The decor here is a million times better than your own villa!

      The old lady couldn't help but think what a pleasant experience it would be to live here.

      I'm afraid I just want to stay at home every day, looking here and touching there ......

      Unfortunately, I don't have that life anymore!

      Xiao Changkun, this son, doesn't look like he's usually a wimp, but he really has luck in choosing a son-in-law.

      Who would have thought that a stinky hangdog like Ye Chen, who came from an orphanage, would have such good luck?

      Had I known this, I would have never looked down on Ye Chen in the first place, and said that I would be polite to him and to Xiao Changkun's family, in that case, I might have a chance to live in this luxury villa ......

      It's a pity that you have already broken off your relationship with Xiao Changkun, even if you want to restore your relationship with him with a serene face, he probably won't agree ......

      The people on the other side, Xiao Hailong and Xiao Weiwei, felt even more uncomfortable.

      Xiao Weiwei's eyes even turned red as she looked at this palace-like living room.

      If grandmother hadn't offended Ye Chen in the first place, how could the Wang family have withdrawn from their marriage?

      I was supposed to be the young grandmother of the Wang family, but now, after being toyed with by Xiao Yiqian and Wei Changming, my reputation in Jinling had been completely ruined, and during this time, I didn't even have a single suitor by my side, and it was even more of a dream to marry into a rich family!

      While the grandparents were each thinking, the porters had already moved all the furniture into the living room.

      Xiao Changkun took inventory and checked each and every one of them to make sure that everything was fine, and he was extremely excited.

      He could be really sentimental about this set of furniture, and being able to buy it back could be the best outcome.

      So, with an excited face, he came to old Mrs. Xiao and said, "Mom, there is nothing wrong with the furniture, how can I pay you the money?"

      Old Mrs. Xiao looked at Xiao Changkun with a complicated expression and said, "Ah Changkun, you are also mother's son, since you like this set of furniture so much, this furniture mother will give it to you."

      Xiao Changkun hurriedly said, "Mom, how can this be, one size fits all, even if you give this furniture to me, big brother will not agree, besides, isn't the Xiao family short of money right now, this 1.2 million may still help the Xiao family."

      Old Mrs. Xiao shook her head and said with eager eyes, "Ah Changkun, I know your heart, but you don't have to worry, the Xiao family is still your mother and I am in charge, as long as I say that this furniture is a gift to you, it is a gift."

      As soon as Xiao Changkun heard this, he said gratefully, "Thank you, Mom!"

      Ma Lan on the side was also excited, is this a change in the old lady's sex?$1.2 million and you don't want it?That's great!You've got another chance!

      Unexpectedly, Old Mrs. Xiao sighed pitifully at this time, "Chang Kun ah, the villa of the Xiao family will soon be taken away, and then your mother and I will be sleeping on the streets, your villa is so big and luxurious, shouldn't you leave a bedroom for your mother?"






785

As soon as Old Mrs. Xiao said this, the faces of everyone present changed!

      The first one to change his face was Mashio!

      She instantly understood what the old lady was up to!

      You old bastard!What an old fox!You gave us furniture, but you want to live in our villa!

      I had a hard time begging you, getting rid of the Xiao family, and even living a better life than the Xiao family, so I could crush the Xiao family.

      And all of a sudden you lick your face and want to live in our family's big villa?

      Why don't you take a pee on yourself? Do you deserve it?

      Xiao Changkun was no fool, and last second, he was indeed somewhat touched by the old lady's generosity, but this second, he immediately saw through the old lady's intentions.

      He knew that if he let the old lady live in his family's new villa, it would simply be like inviting a wolf into the house, and the whole family would not be able to have peace, so he could not agree to anything he said.

      Ye Chen was also a little worried in his heart, if this old lady really lived in here, then the days would simply be turned upside down!

      Not only was Ye Chen's family shocked, but Xiao Hailong and Xiao Weiwei beside him were even more shocked!

      Not only were they shocked, but they were angry!

      The old lady's meaning was too obvious, this was to directly go and suck up to Xiao Changkun's family and then move over to live with them.

      In that case, what would her own family of three do!

      Mom had rolled up fifteen million dollars and run away, dad was now almost penniless, and the siblings had no savings at all.

      The only thing they rely on is the batch of antiques hidden in the old lady's hands, and if she defected to Xiao Changkun's family at this time, wouldn't their own family be finished!

      Once the bank takes away the villa, I'm afraid my family will be sleeping on the streets!

      Just when they were getting nervous, Lan Ma was the first to speak up, she looked at Old Mrs. Xiao with contempt and said coldly, "Aigoo, what a good plan you have, to kick us out first, and now that we're living in a big villa, you want to trade a set of broken furniture for a room?Do you know how much my villa costs?$130 million!Including the renovations, it's probably a hundred and fifty million, a bedroom is worth at least tens of millions, how much is that furniture of yours?"

      Old Mrs. Xiao only wanted to be able to live in this villa now, so in the face of Ma Lan's mockery, she said with an innocent face, "Good daughter-in-law, this set of furniture is a small gift from Ma to you for your housewarming, how can a thought be measured by money?"

      Ma Lan immediately said, "Don't play games with me, let's use money, it's only 1.2 million.We'd rather give it to you than never let you move in, and if you do, will we have any peace of mind as a family?"

      Xiao Changkun also had an instant realization.

      Yes, if Old Mrs. Xiao moved in as well, then his own life would simply be no different from hell.

      Thus, he immediately said to Old Lady Xiao, "Mom, send it even, give me a card number and I'll send the money over."

      As soon as Old Mrs. Xiao saw that Xiao Changkun wasn't falling for it, she pulled down her face and asked in a cold voice, "What?You're going to have to break it off with me, the mother?"

      Xiao Changkun hurriedly said, "Mom, it's not me who said to cut it off, it's you who said it, but in my eyes, you will always be my mom."

      "Where in your eyes is there a mother like me?"Old Mrs. Xiao said angrily, "You're not even willing to reserve a room for me in such a large villa, you'd rather see me starve and freeze to death out here than support me!Your conscience has been eaten by dogs!"

      Before Xiao Changkun had a chance to speak, Ma Lan, who was on the side, said: "Don't fix that useless, selling sofas, why are you still relying on us?Let me tell you, you were the one who broke off the relationship and drove us out, and now you regret it, but we don't regret it, we don't know how happy we've been since we left the Xiao family, and we won't agree even if you beg us to restore the relationship now."





786

Xiao Changkun also nodded his head repeatedly.

      But he knew what it was like to have one shrew in the house, it was like a chicken and a dog.

      If there were two shrews in the house, then don't take this house either.

      So he also ruthlessly spoke up, "Mom, give me a card number and I'll call the money over to you, or you can have these porters move the furniture."

      Old Mrs. Xiao was so angry that she pointed at Xiao Changkun and was about to come up and slap him, but fortunately Xiao Changkun reacted quickly and took two steps back to let the old lady pounce.

      She was shivering with anger at Xiao Changkun's attitude, and what was even more depressing was that she didn't even have the chance to enjoy such a luxurious and extravagant villa, which simply made every pore in her body as uncomfortable as a needle pricking.

      However, there was no other way out at the moment.

      She could only look angrily at Xiao Changkun and grit her teeth, "Fine!That's my boy!From now on, we're done with each other!Even if I die, you don't come!"

      Marashi answered, "That's just right, save us the trouble."

      "You ......"

      Old Mrs. Xiao coughed violently a few times, pulled out a bank card and snapped at Xiao Changkun, "Transfer money!You have to give me 1.21 million!"

      Lan Ma frowned and asked, "Why should I give you 1.21 million?Didn't we agree on 1.2 million?"

      The old lady raged, "It doesn't cost me anything to hire a car or a man, does it?"

      Lan Ma said coldly, "What does it have to do with me if you hire people and cars?Why didn't you tell me you wanted more money for the paper you poop and wipe your ass with in the morning?Do I have to reimburse you for that too?"

      Old Mrs. Xiao gritted her teeth and cursed, "You shrew, I'll rip your damn mouth off!"

      Saying that, the old lady reached out her hand to grab Ma Lan.

      Ma Lan was not Xiao Changkun, she was not polite at all, she just threw her hand away and opened the old lady's hand with a cold voice: "What for?Still want to do it?You're right, I am indeed a shrew, but you're no slouch either!You old shrew, fight me in my house, do you believe I'll smack you with my big mouth?"

      After so many years of being oppressed and despised by the old lady, Ma Lan had long wanted to take revenge.

      Old Mrs. Xiao didn't think that Ma Lan really didn't scruple herself at all, and although she was angry, she really had no half way to do anything about it.

      At this time, Xiao Changkun took the phone and operated it, then said to the old lady, "Mom, 1.21 million has been called to you, check it out, if there is no problem, please return."

      Ma Lan said off the cuff, "You have money to burn?I can still have a few spa treatments with that $10,000. What's she gonna do with it?Isn't that feeding the dogs?"

      Xiao Changkun waved his hand, "Okay, you can cut the crap!"

      The old lady Xiao received a text message alert on her phone at this time, took it out and saw that the account had indeed reached 1.21 million, so she glared at Ma Lan and said in a cold voice, "Surnamed Ma, you wait for me, sooner or later you'll tear your mouth off!"

      After saying that, he said to Xiao Hailong and Xiao Weiwei, "Let's go!"

      Xiao Hailong and Xiao Weiwei let out a sigh of relief.

      They were really afraid that Second Uncle Xiao Changkun wasn't firm enough, and if they really agreed to let the old lady live in, their family of three would be finished.

      Fortunately, they hadn't let the old lady have her way!





787

Outside the villa, Xiao Chang Qian saw the old lady come out with her son and daughter, and immediately went forward to ask a question, "Mom, have you paid?"

      Old Mrs. Xiao said with a black face, "Here, let's go!"

      Seeing that Old Mrs. Xiao seemed to be very angry, Xiao Chang Qian hurriedly pulled Xiao Hailong and asked in a low voice, "What's going on?Is your grandmother angry?"

      Xiao Hailong waited until his sister and grandmother were a little farther away before he whispered, "Dad, grandmother is so not a thing!"

      "How to talk!"Xiao Chang Qian gave a low growl and reprimanded, "We're all depending on your grandmother now, what if she hears you talking about her like that?"

      Xiao Hailong looked angry and said, "Dad!Do you know what Grandma just said to Uncle?She said the furniture was a gift for nothing, as long as Uncle gave her a room in the villa to live in!Fortunately, Uncle Er didn't pay any attention to her, and Ma Lan even gave her a scolding!"

      "What?!"Xiao Chang Qian's face changed as soon as he heard this!

      Yes!

      Your own mother is a real wallflower!

      Before the accident, she was the one who despised her brother's family and drove them away.

      Now that the Xiao family is dying and her brother's family is living in a big villa, she wants to turn against them?

      You're so intent on living in a big villa that you don't think about our family at all!

      Your bitch wife ran away with all the money, and your family is without a source of income, all relying on you to sell some old stuff to save the day, and you want to leave us to enjoy yourself!

      Thinking of this, Xiao Chang Qian was also furious!

      However, he also dared not to say anything in anger, so he could only whisper to Xiao Hailong, "We have to find a way to get the antiques left behind by your grandfather from your grandmother to save ourselves."

      Xiao Hailong hurriedly said, "Grandmother has been reluctant to say ah!I keep asking her and she never answers me directly, the old woman is so smart!"

      Xiao Chang Qian said coldly, "Take your time, keep an eye on your grandmother at all times in the past two days, except for going to the bathroom, stay close to her!"

      "Yes!"

      ......

      With the Xiao family gone, Ma Lan was in her new villa, proudly laughing.

      Although she still held a grudge against Xiao Changkun for changing her phone password to Han Meiqing's birthday and for not giving her all the money even though she had spent it all, but today she had viciously disrespected Mrs. Xiao, which made her sweep away the grudges she had accumulated for more than twenty years and she was so happy.

      Even happier was that she was finally moving into this villa!

      Such a luxurious house, I had never dreamed of it before, but now it was in front of me!

      Right now it's just the sofa furniture that's arrived, but by the afternoon, the people at Furniture City will be bringing in all the other furniture and appliances, and then it'll be official!

      Lan Ma was so excited that she said to Xiao Choran, "Your father and I are going to stay in the biggest bedroom on the third floor!"

      Xiao Churan nodded and said, "You guys can stay on the third floor, I'll stay on the second floor with Ye Chen."

      Saying that, she added, "Right, I had promised Ruo Lin that I would move the villa and leave her a room, Ruo Lin has been in Jinling for quite a long time and has been staying in a hotel, it's quite pitiful."

      Ma Lan hurriedly asked, "Is that Dong Ruo Lin from the Dong family in Yanjing?"

      "Right."Xiao Chu Ran said, "That's her."

      Ma Lan laughed, "Yes!The Dong family is very powerful, their strength is comparable to the Song family, you get on good terms with her, you might be of great use in the future!"

      Saying that, Lan Ma rushed to the elevator and said, "I'll go up to the third floor first to see how the bedroom is set up!"

      Ye Chen said to Xiao Churan, "Why don't we also go to the second floor and take a look?"

      Xiao Choran nodded and walked up the stairs with him to the second floor.





788

The second floor has the same layout as the third, with three rooms, including a large bedroom, and two slightly smaller bedrooms.

      The large bedroom was a suite, with a living area outside and a separate bathroom.

      Ye Chen and Xiao Churan, of course, chose this room, and then left the bedroom next door to Dong Ruorin.

      There was another room on the second floor, which Xiao Churan planned as her own study, her company often had to do design drawings and construction plans, so she needed a room where she could work.

      Ye Chen and Xiao Churan looked around the room and deliberately said to Xiao Churan, "Wife, the bed we bought seems to be two meters and three meters wide, right?"

      "Mm."Xiao Churan nodded and said, "This bedroom is too big, it's not good to choose a one meter and eighteen meter bed."

      Ye Chen smiled hehely, "A two-meter-three bed is a little too wide for you to sleep alone, isn't it?"

      Xiao Choran instantly understood the meaning of his words, and her face turned red as she asked in a low voice, "What do you mean?"

      Ye Chen smiled and said, "Wife, don't you understand what I mean?I've been sleeping on the floor for three years, so it's time to move up a level, right?"

      Xiao Churan said shyly, "What level is the upgrade ah, what are you talking about how I don't understand."

      Ye Chen was busy saying, "Just from the floor, upgrade to the bed ah."

      Xiao Churan's pretty face blushed and said, "No one said that you are not allowed to upgrade ah, once asked you if the floor is cold, you still said that it is not cold, you do not want to upgrade, blame who?"

      When Ye Chen heard this, he was delighted and smiled, "Wife, then after we move to a new home, I'll officially upgrade, okay?"

      Xiao Churan was very shy and said, "Suit yourself!"

      After saying that, he hurriedly left the room.

      Ye Chen's heart was beautiful, after sleeping on this floor for more than three years, it looked like it was time to turn over the serfs and sing!

      ......

      In the afternoon, the furniture company came over with a couple of trucks to deliver and install.

      The second and third floors were each decorated with two bedrooms, and the second floor was also decorated with an additional study room.

      In one afternoon, the furniture and appliances had all arrived, only missing some pots and pans, bedding and pillows and other daily necessities, so that they could live directly here.

      Ma Lan lay down on her hundred-thousand-dollar bed, rolling straight up in excitement, and said to Xiao Changkun, "I plan to just stay here today and sleep here at night!"

      Xiao Changkun frowned, "How are you staying tonight?No bedding and no toiletries!"

      Marashi said, "I don't want to go back to living in that stupid house anyway!"

      Xiao Changkun said with a bit of disgust, "You can stay if you like, anyway, I'll go back to stay tonight and move in together after I've packed and gotten my things in order, if you don't go, you can stay here by yourself."

      When Ma Lan thought about the fact that this didn't even have a blanket, she said with resentment, "That's fine, go back tonight and pack together, and find a car tomorrow and move it all in at one time!"

      Saying that, Lan Ma deliberately asked, "How much money do we have left in the house?"

      Xiao Changkun vigilantly asked, "Why do you ask?"

      Lan Ma said, "I'm just asking, can't I?"

      Xiao Changkun said, "There's only tens of thousands of yuan in the house, I'm warning you not to get the idea of this money, in the future if you want to spend money you should go out and earn it yourself, otherwise in this house, there's something for you to eat, something for you to live in, something for you to use, but there's just nothing for you to spend!"

      When Ma Lan heard this, the fire in her heart could no longer be suppressed and she cursed, "Xiao Changkun, did I give you a fucking face?You're getting arrogant with me these days!"

      Xiao Changkun coldly questioned, "Don't forget that you lost all of your family's two million dollars, and I'm already treating you so politely!"

      Ma Lan cursed angrily, "Don't you fucking talk to me about this egg!You changed your password to Han Mi Ching's birthday, I haven't even paid you back yet!I really didn't expect that!Your daughter has been with you for over 20 years and you still have that vixen in your head!What, do you still want to be with that fox-voice?!"







789

Ma Lan's words caused Xiao Changkun to panic all of a sudden!

      He knew about Ma Lan secretly unlocking his phone, but he thought that Ma Lan would have guessed incorrectly if he had changed the password, but he really didn't expect Ma Lan to know that he had changed it to Han Mi Ching's birthday!

      It made him panic in his heart and even more frightened at the same time!

      Fortunately, I had set up a separate payment code, otherwise the money might have been gone by now by Mashiro!

      When Ma Lan saw that Xiao Changkun was fidgeting and not speaking, her anger immediately exploded and she gritted her teeth and scolded, "Aren't you very powerful these past two days?Hit me, yell at me, shake my face at me, and now you're mute?Did I get you right about that dirty mind of yours?"

      Xiao Changkun defended out of his mouth, "Don't you dare bullshit me here, I don't have any dirty thoughts at all!"

      "Bullshit!"Ma Lan cursed, "The password of the phone has been changed to someone's birthday, and you're still telling me you don't have a dirty mind?It's a good thing that thousand-knife vixen rolled off to America, or else you'd be cheating on me with her behind my back!"

      Xiao Changkun blushed and said, "Why are you like this?How come Han Miharu is a vixen?When I was dating Han Meiqing, you were the one who got me drunk and had sex with me, and afterwards you went and interfered with Han Meiqing's third party, you're the vixen, okay?"

      Lan Ma was furious and said, "I'm a fox?I gave you all my fucking kids and I'm a fox?"

      Xiao Changkun was also on fire and took off, "You are the fox spirit!If it wasn't for you having sex with me while I was drunk in the first place, I would have married Han Meiqing long ago!"

      As soon as Ma Lan heard this, she took two steps and rushed to Xiao Changkun's face, went up and slapped him, cursing hysterically, "You fucking dare to call me a fox and defend Han Meiqing, I'll fight you today!"

      Xiao Changkun was slapped and was also shaking with anger, kicking Ma Lan aside and pointing at her nose and scolding her, "I've been putting up with you for over twenty years, I've had enough of you!If you don't want to live, we'll get a divorce!It's just as well that we'll be moving into a villa soon, with more bedrooms, so we'll be separated before we go through divorce proceedings!"

      Ma Lan was kicked and sat on the ground, crying loudly, "Xiao Changkun!You ungrateful bastard, I've been with you for so many years and suffered so much, and you're still thinking of another woman!Now you want to divorce me!I'm going to let my daughter decide for me!"

      Afterwards, he cried out loudly in the direction of the door, "My good daughter, you can make decisions for your mother, your mother grieves!Your father he's not a thing!"

      At this time, Xiao Choran, who was arranging the study on the second floor with Ye Chen, once she heard the cries and noises upstairs, Xiao Choran hurriedly said, "It's bad, they're fighting again."

      After saying that, he hurriedly rushed out the door.

      Ye Chen, of course, followed closely behind.

      The two of them hurriedly went upstairs, and once they entered the master bedroom on the third floor, they saw Ma Lan sitting paralyzed on the floor, crying blurred tears, while also constantly slapping the ground with her hands, crying and howling, "My good daughter, you can come, if you don't come, your mother will have your father, the heartless son of a bitch, killed."

      Xiao Churan hurriedly had to assist her, while asking after her, "What's wrong with you?The new house just got done, isn't that fun, and why are you two fighting again?"

      Ma Lan pointed at Xiao Changkun and cried, "Your father, this shameless one, stole his phone password and changed it to his first lover's birthday, and just now pointed at my nose and called me a vixen, and even said that if I hadn't gotten pregnant with you back then, he would have flown with his first lover long ago, he's disliking us both!"

      Xiao Choran was really uncomfortable when she heard this and hurriedly questioned Xiao Changkun, "Dad, is what Mom said true?"

      Xiao Changkun looked ugly and very embarrassed, not knowing how to explain at all.

      It was true that he had changed the password of his phone to Han Meiqing's birthday, and he did scold Ma Lan for being a vixen.

      But, Ma Lan, this bitch was also really vicious!She never said anything about disliking her daughter herself, but now she had her daughter tied to her chariot too!






790

So he could only forcefully explain, "Churan, what I told your mother is about those things we did back then, it's not against you, Dad has never disliked you."

      Xiao Churan didn't know about those stories back then, and couldn't help but say with a bit of dissatisfaction, "Dad, I don't care what happened between you and Mom in the beginning, and I don't care if there was a third party between you and Mom in the beginning, all I know is that you already married Mom more than twenty years ago, and this is a marriage you chose yourself, so you have to give this marriage enough respect!"

      "Changing your phone password to your first lover's birthday, as you did, is marital infidelity!If you don't love and hate Mom anymore, you can divorce her and go after your own happiness, but you can't do something like this while a marriage is still going on!"

      Xiao Changkun was at once ashamed of himself.

      He also knew that his daughter was right, and it was really wrong that he didn't divorce Ma Lan and changed the password of his phone to his first love's birthday.

      So he was ashamed and said, "Choran, you're right about this, it's dad's fault, dad apologizes to you."

      Xiao Churan said, "You should apologize to mom, not me."

      Xiao Changkun could only scalp Ma Lan and said, "My fault, I shouldn't have changed the password to Han Meiqing's birthday, and I shouldn't have done anything with you, I review."

      When Ma Lan saw that her purpose had succeeded, she immediately said, "You now immediately change your phone password to my birthday, and then change your bank login password and payment password to my birthday!"

      Xiao Changkun scolded, "Aren't you just trying to manage the money in the end?What's the point of acting so much?"

      Lan Ma said forcefully, "I'm not trying to control the money, but I want you to give me the respect I deserve!"

      Xiao Changkun nodded his head and said, "OK!You want to change your password, right, I'll change it now."

      After saying that, he immediately pulled out his phone, advanced into the mobile bank, and transferred the remaining tens of thousands of dollars to Ye Chen, which then changed the password all over again to Ma Lan's birthday.

      After finishing all this, only then did Xiao Changkun coldly said, "Alright, I've finished changing it all, are you satisfied?"

      Lan Ma immediately snatched the phone from his hand and said, "I'll check first!"

      Afterwards, she entered her birthday to unlock it, and then hurriedly went into the mobile bank.

      The balance turned out to be zero, and she was on fire!

      Where's the money?

      There's tens of thousands of dollars left!

      She hurriedly checked the transfer records, only to discover that just a moment ago, Xiao Changkun had transferred all the money to Ye Chen!

      This old thing would rather transfer all the money back to Ye Chen than let himself get a single cent!

      However, Marashi had no other way out for a moment.

      Couldn't ask for the money in front of his daughter, that would seem like he was all about the money!

      I had to bite my teeth and make a note of this sum in my heart, I'll deal with Xiao Changkun later!





791

A farce ended with Xiao Changkun and Ma Lan getting nothing for anyone.

      Ma Lan wanted money, but in the end, she also didn't get any, leaving her depressed chest aching for a day.

      When the family of four returned home from the villa, everyone started to pack their own things, and Xiao Choran also didn't forget to call Dong Ruorin to tell her about the move tomorrow, so that she could also prepare for tomorrow, check out from the hotel and move over together.

      Dong Ruorin danced with happiness when she heard this news.

      Ever since she had fallen in love with Ye Chen, she had always wanted to find more opportunities to spend time with Ye Chen, but she was usually busy with work and had to take care of Xiao Choran, so there hadn't been many opportunities.

      If she could live with Xiao Churan and Ye Chen, there would naturally be much more opportunities.

      So she agreed almost without a second thought.

      While Ye Chen's family was busy packing up their things, the Xiao family was exactly in a state of flux.

      Ever since selling the furniture and coming back from Townsend, Xiao Chang Qian had been more than a little dissatisfied with his own mother.

      The fact that Old Lady Xiao was determined to go live in the big villa of Xiao Changkun's family stung Xiao Changqian severely.

      It made him realize that the old lady wasn't really favoring herself.

      She had been favoring herself before for her own benefit, and once Xiao Changkun's side was better for her, she would abandon herself and go in favor of Xiao Changkun.

      So, as soon as he returned home, he told Old Lady Xiao to transfer the 1.21 million from the sale of the furniture to himself.

      He felt that the old lady might abandon him at any time, so he must plan ahead and at least get some money in his hands first.

      Otherwise, if the old lady falls out of favor, who can you count on then?

      His son, Xiao Hailong, is a loser. In the past, when the Xiao family didn't have any problems, it was okay for him to be a second generation rich man who was waiting for death.

      The Xiao family is so devastated, it's impossible to expect him to get ahead and make money. His daughter Xiao Weiwei is a canary, and she can't even cook well.

      So he said to old Mrs. Xiao, "Mom, you are the legal representative of the Xiao Group and the person responsible, the money is put here with you, it can easily be frozen by the bank!"

      Old Mrs. Xiao didn't feel that way, and she said indifferently, "The money from the sale of this furniture is itself used to pay back the bank."

      Unless she had to, Old Madam Xiao did not want the Xiao Group to go bankrupt and liquidate, because once the Xiao Group went bankrupt, she would be finished.

      She was the legal person of the Xiao Group, if she had the money and didn't pay back the bank, not only would the bank seize her house, it would even sue herself and arrest her as a rogue.

      In that case, the unlucky one is herself, and the one who goes to jail is also herself.

      Therefore, she insisted on paying back the bank's minimum repayment first, and also planned to plead with the bank's account manager so that the other party could be lenient for a while longer.

      When Xiao Chang Qian heard this, he blew up and took off, "Mom, the family can't even uncover the pot, it's hard to come by more than a million, you're paying back the bank, what are we going to eat and drink?"





792

Old Mrs. Xiao snorted, "If I don't pay it back, I'll be arrested and put in jail!Don't forget that I'm the corporate entity responsible for underwriting the company's debts!"

      Xiao Changqian hurriedly said, "Then you should at least take out one or two hundred thousand to give us a reprieve!I can't even afford to smoke a pack of cigarettes for fifty bucks a pop now that I'm living this life!"

      "And smoking?"Old Mrs. Xiao said sternly, "It's good to have a mouthful of food, but you're still thinking about smoking?"

      Xiao Changqian held his fire in his heart, but his mouth sighed, "Mom, I'm old, so it's fine to be patient, but Hailong and Weiwei are still young!They've never suffered much, so we can't begrudge them that!"

      Old Mrs. Xiao snorted, "That I don't care, the more we have to scrimp and save and tide over the difficulties together!"

      As soon as this was said, Xiao Hailong and Xiao Weiwei became dissatisfied.

      The two of them were already pampered and spoiled and couldn't suffer much, and since Qian Hongyan had rolled up her money and run away, they had been living a hard life for a while.

      However, Old Mrs. Xiao was now rich instead of saying to open the warehouse and release the grain, she wanted everyone to scrimp and save, wouldn't this kill them both?

      Immediately, Xiao Hailong was the first to say, "Grandmother, it's easy for you to say, you're old, you eat and drink little, scrimping and saving is naturally fine for you, but how can my sister and I be like this, we can't suffer like this ah, I don't eat and drink well these days, I'm several pounds lighter!"

      "Yes Grandma!"Xiao Weiwei also didn't have a good mood: "The cosmetics I used to use, which ones aren't thousands of dollars, now I can only use the most ordinary L'Oreal, seeing that this L'Oreal is running out of money to buy, grandmother do you still want me to use a few dollars of Dabo sod honey ah?"

      After saying that, she immediately spilled the beans, "I don't care, grandmother you must give me 20,000 yuan today, I'll go buy a set of aquamarine mystery to use, or I'll ruin this face all!"

      Old Mrs. Xiao snorted, "Poor foolishness!Return the aquamarine mystery?Are you still sorry, Dabao sod honey?Useless things, even Xiao Yiqian can't grasp them, if you had been able to hold Xiao Yiqian, would our family be in this state today?"

      Xiao Weiwei became anxious and got out of her mouth, "What does this have to do with me?It was Xiao Yiqian who was rendered incompetent by Ye Chen, before he didn't become incompetent, I was coaxing him into doing well, don't forget that he gave me back five million and tens of millions to the Xiao family!"

      "So what?"Old Mrs. Xiao said coldly, "Isn't he gone yet?If you're really that good, he'll stay even if he becomes incompetent, and in the end you're still not good enough!"

      Xiao Chang Qian was still holding his fire, but once he heard the old lady say that about his daughter Xiao Weiwei, he was also a bit angry and said out of his mouth, "Mom, Weiwei's matter with Xiao Yiqian was also at your command, how can you fall into the well and cross the river at this time?"

      Old Mrs. Xiao snorted, "I'm crossing the river to demolish the bridge?Did I go to the river?Obviously it was gone before we were halfway across the bridge, causing me to fall into the water and almost drown!"

      Xiao Changqian said in exasperation, "Mom, anyway, I just say, the money can't all be returned to the bank, said that we have to take 200,000 out to improve our lives, or else you'll take all those antiques of my father's back then and sell some money to save the emergency, or else you hide those things and can't take them away in the future!"

      "You curse me to death?!"Old Mrs. Xiao was on fire and said coldly, "The three of you want to turn the tide, don't you?"

      Old Mrs. Xiao's voice had changed, sharp and frightening.

      She did not even think that Xiao Changqian, who had always been flattering and obedient to her, would dare to stomp her nose and speak harshly to her!

      At this moment, she also profoundly realized that her eldest son, grandson and granddaughter were not really dead set on following her either.

      They were just three parasites clinging to themselves, constantly thinking of opening their mouths to suck nourishment from their bodies!

      The more you do, the more you have to hold on to the money and stuff, and never let the three of them get away with it!



793

After Old Mrs. Xiao and Xiao Changqian centrifuged, an unhealable rift was created in each other's hearts.

      In the end, the old lady only took out 50,000 yuan as living expenses for the family of four, and the rest was paid back to the two banks that owed the money.

      After the banks received this part of the repayment, the person in charge of the collection department also gave Mrs. Xiao face, saying that the debt could be postponed appropriately to give the Xiao family a breather.

      Old Mrs. Xiao was finally relieved.

      Up to now, she was still counting on the Xiao Group to come back from the dead, and as long as she could delay the pace of bankruptcy, there might be a chance.

      When might there be a time when the next Xiao Yiqian would come out?

      To himself, the Xiao family is currently facing great difficulties, but in the final analysis, it is only a matter of tens of millions of dollars, and if he really encounters a big boss like Xiao Yiqian who is worth ten billion, a little money leaking out from his fingers would be enough to bring the Xiao family back to life.

      In contrast to the old lady Xiao who was full of longing and expectation, Xiao Changqian was very depressed.

      The old lady only kept fifty thousand yuan of the money from the sale of furniture, and this fifty thousand yuan was still clutched in her own hand.

      Xiao Changqian himself was running out of money, to the point where he couldn't even afford a pack of cigarettes.

      That night, the old lady only took twenty yuan out to buy food, buying a pile of worthless rotten cabbage and half a catty of pork.

      Xiao Changqian's anger is unbearable, but there is no way to do anything about it, so he can only endure it now in his heart, while also racking his brains to research where exactly the old lady would hide the antiques left behind by the old man.

      While the Xiao family was grumbling about their poor life of clear water, Xiao Choran's family had started moving to the Townsend Villa the next morning.

      Since the furniture was all newly purchased, the move did not require any large items to be moved, and the four families each packed up their respective clothes and supplies, then packed up their utensils and kitchenware, found a truck and pulled them all over at once.

      The first thing you need to do is to take a look at the newest products that you can find in the marketplace.

      Xiao Churan shyly said, "Aren't you all ready to upgrade?What's the point of bringing all this stuff?"

      Upon hearing this, Ye Chen was thrilled!

      After the van arrived at Thompson's, Xiao Changkun set off a few small hand-pulled salutes into the air at the door, and it was considered a housewarming gift.

      Then, the family of four began to pack up their respective rooms.

      Ye Chen and Xiao Churan packed the master bedroom on the second floor, Ma Lan herself packed the master bedroom on the third floor, and Xiao Changkun, on his own, went to pack up the small room next door in a muffled voice.

      In his words, he was going to be separated from Ma Lan.

      As for Xiao Changkun, he slept wherever he liked, but he was annoyed to see him now, so the separation was painful.

      However, Xiao Churan's heart is not too good.

      The actual time you'll be able to get the most out of your own home, you'll be able to get the most out of your own home.

      But she also knew that she, as a daughter, couldn't interfere too much in her parents' affairs, so she thought that it would be better to let them separate first, so that both of them could calm down and think about it.

      If they could both think it over, then the future would be better.

      When Ye Chen and Xiao Choran were almost done packing, Dong Ruolin also took a taxi over.

      She didn't have many things, just two suitcases and a bag, Xiao Choran warmly invited her in and then brought her directly to the second floor by elevator.

      As soon as she got out of the elevator, she opened her mouth and shouted, "Ye Chen, come and give Ruo Lin a hand!"



794

Ye Chen hurriedly went out, and immediately saw Dong Ruolin who had been specially dressed up.

      The first thing that you need to do is to make sure that you're in a good position to get the best out of the situation, and you'll be able to do that.

      As soon as Dong Ruolin saw Ye Chen, her little face flushed red, and she waved her hand at him somewhat nervously, saying, "Ye Chen, I'll be indebted to you for taking care of me in the future!"

      Ye Chen smiled slightly, nodded his head and said, "Welcome."

      Actually, Ye Chen was a bit helpless in his heart.

      He knew that Dong Ruolin liked himself.

      If she was just confessing to herself, he would be fine with it, just politely refusing or turning a deaf ear to it.

      However, now she suddenly moved over and wanted to live under the same roof with him, which really made him a bit of a headache.

      But of course, he couldn't show anything unusual in front of Xiao Churan.

      Xiao Choran pointed at Dong Ruorin's two large boxes and said to Ye Chen, "Ye Chen, you're strong, help Ruorin get her luggage to her bedroom."

      "Good."Ye Chen nodded and dragged the two suitcases into Dong Ruorin's bedroom.

      Dong Ruorin followed suit and her heart was sweet.

      In her opinion, she would be able to be closer to Ye Chen in the future, and no matter if she could end up with Ye Chen or not, as long as she could be closer to him, she would be satisfied in her heart.

      After all, in her heart, Ye Chen was not only the object of her crush, but also her savior twice, so she only longed to be closer to Ye Chen, and then she would be satisfied.

      As for whether or not the two would develop, it would have to depend on what was going on with his relationship with Xiao Churan first.

      If the two were always in a false marriage, then she would naturally have to fight for it, but if they had true feelings, then she definitely couldn't steal her best friend's husband.

      Dong Ruolin followed Ye Chen into the room, looked around and said in surprise, "Yah, this room is pretty big!"

      "Mm."Ye Chen smiled and said, "You definitely have enough to live by yourself."

      Dong Ruolin pursed her lips and nodded, whirling to see that Xiao Choran hadn't come in yet, she hurriedly asked, "How are you and Choran doing lately?"

      "It's pretty good."Ye Chen replied smoothly.

      "Oh ......."Dong Ruolin asked obscurely, "Compared to before, what has changed?"

      Dong Ruolin wanted to know if Ye Chen and Xiao Churan had broken through that level of relationship, but it was hard to ask explicitly, so she could only subtly side-step the question.

      Ye Chen didn't think too much about it, just casually said, "Our relationship is stable, nothing has changed."

      When Dong Ruolin heard him say that there was no change, she felt a lot more solid, and it was estimated that Xiao Churan and Ye Chen were still sleeping in separate beds, which proved that the two of them still didn't actually have any breakthroughs.

      For herself, this was good news.

      At this time, Ma Lan on the third floor was so excited that she took a lot of pictures and selfies in her large bedroom, and even turned the beauty filter on to the maximum, then carefully selected a few pictures of the living room as well as those taken from the outside, and posted them to her friends together.

      The caption read: "Oh my gosh, after waiting for so long, I've finally moved into my own Thompson villa!This is the largest household in Thomson!With a living room this big and a bedroom this big, I don't even know if I'd be scared to sleep in here at night!"

      After writing this, she thought of Old Mrs. Xiao and added: "Hey, this villa has three floors above ground and two floors below ground, a total of five floors, ten bedrooms, each of them very luxurious and stylish, but how can a family of four of us live over here?That's so sad ......"





795
After Ma Lan finished editing the copy of the friend circle, she also deliberately paired a few shy expressions on the back, and then also opened the positioning of Thompson, and joyfully clicked send.

      As soon as this was sent out, there were immediately many people praising and leaving messages.

      The messages were full of all sorts of admiration catering as well as kneeling and licking, marveling at how luxurious her family's mansion was.

      After all, no one had expected that Ma Lan would be able to live in a top-notch villa worth over 100 million, which was simply beyond what everyone who knew her knew about her.

      At that moment, the Xiao family was gathering around a pot of duck frame boiling cabbage and eating a handful of bitter tears.

      The old lady herself is dead set on the money, and is quite dissatisfied with Xiao Changqian and his pair of children who contradicted her yesterday, so she also intends to toss them.

      So, she went out to buy food in the morning and only bought a duck rack, then bought two cabbages and just washed and cut them up and stewed them in one pot.

      She felt that she was old and had a small amount of food anyway, and she couldn't eat anything too meat and greasy, so she made this kind of clear soup, and as for the three of them, they loved to eat or not eat.

      Xiao Changqian, Xiao Hailong, and Xiao Weiwei are nearly broke, and the three of them can't scrape together the money for a meal at the restaurant, so they can only eat this kind of stuff at home with the old lady.

      The rack of ducks looked quite small, but it was all bones, not much meat at all, and Xiao Hailong had already gnawed a large pile of bone scraps in front of him, but it was hard not to fill his stomach.

      Bored as he ate, he brushed his friend circle.

      Suddenly, he saw the one posted by Ma Lan, took a closer look and gnashed his teeth in anger, slammed his chopsticks down, and cursed angrily, "Grass!Ma Lan, the shrew, is living in Tomson's First Class, damn, she deserves to live in Tomson's First Class too!What a blind God!"

      As soon as the old lady heard this, she picked up her phone and took a look at it, and she was on fire too!

      "This damn dog thing is specifically saying that there are ten bedrooms that can't be lived in."

      Old Mrs. Xiao is extremely uncomfortable, inwardly cursed, so many rooms can not give me one, let me go in to live a stay, and now also issued to deliberately irritate me, really a thousand cuts to her also not hate!

      At this time, Xiao Changqian also looked at his cell phone friend circle, looked at the photos of the mansion that Ma Lan sent, and then looked at the duck rack of boiled cabbage in front of him, so angry that he couldn't eat his rice, and directly pulled Ma Lan into the blacklist.

      Out of sight, out of mind!

      Xiao Weiwei also had Ma Lan's WeChat friends and opened a glance, but she was also furious.

      Old Mrs. Xiao saw that the three of them were all in a somewhat dejected mood, and hurriedly said, "Don't you care about the things Ma Lan sent, she'll have to be kicked out of that villa in a few days."

      Saying that, she cleared her throat and said again, "Our priority is to think about how to get the Xiao Clan through this difficult time and revive it!"

      Xiao Changqian said with resentment, "Tide over what difficulty?Tens of millions of dollars in debt have to be settled, right?With what?This villa is so old, I think it can be sold for 17 or 18 million at most, the rest of the hole is still big."

      After saying that, he looked at Old Mrs. Xiao with some complaints and said, "The antiques Dad left behind can at least be sold for tens of millions, right?If you want me to say mom you might as well give me all those antiques, I'll sell them and realize them, then go buy a house, and you'll still have a place to live after the bank takes this villa away."

      Old Mrs. Xiao said with a cold face, "Buy a house?You think I can go there just because you bought a house?I could be going to jail for not paying my debts!I'm so old, if I go to jail, I'll come out alive?"






796

Xiao Changqian summoned the courage to say, "Mom, even if the day the court sentences you to jail, me, Hailong, Vivi and I will be able to live in peace with this money, but if you don't take out these antiques, if you go to jail, the three of us will starve to death outside!"

      "Starvation?"Old Mrs. Xiao said coldly, "You three have arms and legs, you can't starve to death even if you go sweeping the streets!I'm telling you Xiao Changqian, that batch of antiques your father left behind is my salvation, don't you dare think of hitting on it!"

      Xiao Changqian couldn't hold back his fire, soaring to his feet and coldly saying, "The things my father left behind are for us, his children and grandchildren, why should you be the only one holding on to them?"

      Old Mrs. Xiao said coldly, "What?Are you rebelling?Fine, just scream at me and bare your teeth at me, I'll die and none of you will ever know where all those antiques are, you won't get anything then!"

      Said the old lady, grunting and sneering, "Anyway, I'm an old woman, I've lived long enough, even if I die now, it doesn't matter, before I die, I'll make a will and donate my life insurance to you, and I won't give you a cent!The three of you will then be the ones to suffer, you three will be incapable and capable, if the Xiao family collapses and I die, you three will not be considered street beggars and will be at the bottom of the social ladder, and then your days of suffering will be long overdue!"

      Once Xiao Chang Qian heard this, he wimped out again.

      He had no choice.

      There was really no way out.

      Having no money and not being able to make money was the biggest problem for him and his pair of children, and if the old lady really died and life insurance was donated, he would have no hope whatsoever.

      So he could only suppress his anger and humbly said, "Mom, I'm in a hurry, don't be so mean to me."

      Old Mrs. Xiao snorted and arrogantly said, "That's more like it!"

      At this time, several bank and court cars suddenly stopped at the entrance of the Xiao villa.

      A large group of uniformed law enforcement officers, as well as a few managers from the bank quickly came to the door and clanged and smashed the door.

      The family was so surprised that Xiao Hailong hurriedly got up and came out to open the door, and as soon as he opened the door, he was stunned by what he saw!

      At this time, a large number of people rushed in and directly commanded many security guards to cordon off the scene.

      Then, a court official stepped forward into the villa and said to the old lady Xiao who was eating, "You are the head of the Xiao Group, right?"

      Without waiting for a reply from Old Mrs. Xiao, she said righteously to Convenient, "On behalf of the District Court, I am now formally informing you that a number of your creditors have jointly filed an application with the court to freeze the Xiao Group, as well as all assets in your name, and all accounts in your personal name, to force you to fulfill your repayment obligations!"

      Old Mrs. Xiao blurted out, "I just paid back the bank over a million dollars!The manager of the bank even told me that I could be lenient for a while, so why did you change your mind so soon?!"

      The other party said coldly, "The bank considered that you no longer have profitability, and you can't afford to pay it back if you drag on, so together with other creditors, they initiated an application and seizure of all assets under your name, now you have one hour to pack up your things and move out, the place is going to be seized!"

      "What?!"

      Old Mrs. Xiao shivered and stood up and asked off the cuff, "Seize all my assets?!On what basis?!"

      The other said coldly, "By virtue of you not paying back the money you owe, of course!Also, don't blame me for not reminding you that you can only take your daily clothes, toiletries, and ordinary furniture, and all cash, luxury goods, and valuables must be left behind!"





797

Old Mrs. Xiao's face turned pale at the news!

      Her body swayed, and the crutch in her hand snapped to the ground.

      I thought there was still enough time to get help, but the life-boosting spell was so quickly delivered to the heel!

      When Xiao Chang Qian and his children heard this, their faces went pale!

      "Mom?What's going on? We're being shut down?Haven't we already given over a million dollars?"

      With the Xiao family's current economic conditions, if the villa was seized, they wouldn't even have a place to live, and all of them didn't have a skill, so they would only end up worse off.

      Not only would Xiao Changqian and the others have to go out and look for jobs and work, I'm afraid that even old Mrs. Xiao would have to find a place to brush the plates.

      Otherwise, they wouldn't be able to survive at all.

      Old Mrs. Xiao sat down on the ground with her buttocks and spilled out, "You're killing our family of four!I just paid all my money back and you're going to take my house!"

      The person in charge said coldly, "We are acting in accordance with the law, and if you don't pay the money you owe, the creditor has the right to ask the court to freeze and seize all your assets!Now a word of advice, if you can get the money to pay the debt, the villa and the account will be unblocked, but if you can't pay the debt in the next three months, then the creditors will have to file a lawsuit against you, and you could then be prosecuted for fraud!"

      Old Mrs. Xiao went crazy and hugged the other woman's leg, saying offhandedly, "You can't seize my villa, I've lived here for nearly twenty years, this is my home!"

      The other party ignored her and directly said to a few staff members, "Carry her out first and let her calm down."

      A few people hurriedly picked her up and took her out the door, and Old Lady Xiao broke down and cried out, "You can't do this!You can't do that!"

      And no one paid any attention to her shouting.

      Xiao Changqian and the others were also brought out by the law enforcement officers.

      At this time, Xiao Changqian was in despair.

      He had seen the state of affairs, it was now a court enforced execution, and if he dared to block it, it would be a blatant defiance of the law.

      Who let his family owe someone money?

      Now that people went to the court to apply for enforcement, it was also completely reasonable and legal.

      Xiao Hailong collapsed at this point: "Dad, what can we do, where can we live as a family after seizing the villa?"

      Xiao Weiwei directly cried, "We're already miserable and poor enough now, if the villa is also gone, then I might as well die."

      The old lady heard, scratching her own hair and cursing, "God damn the bank, how can they do things to such an extent, they don't give people a chance to live at all!"

      Xiao Changqian came out of his mouth at this point, "Mom!Where the hell did you hide those antiques!If they find out, it'll be all over!"

      When the old lady heard this, she blacked out and was about to fall over.

      Xiao Changqian hurriedly stepped forward to help her, she only then slowed down and said nervously, "Those antiques are all in a secret compartment under the basement floor, they shouldn't find them ......"








798

Xiao Changqian rubbed his temples and said, "If we are discovered, then everything will be over."

      As he was saying that, a young man in uniform came in the door again, holding a strange device in his hand.

      This device was a long pole with a circle on the front, and it looked very much like the mine detectors used in movies to clear mines.

      Xiao Chang Qian was surprised and asked, "Young man, is this a mine detector?"

      The man laughed and said, "No, but the principle is similar, they are all metal detectors, and when they meet the metal under the ground, they will send out prompts, mines are also made of metal, so they can also mine with this, but the sensitivity is almost the same."

      Once Xiao Changqian heard that it was a metal detector, his heart thumped, and he asked out of the blue, "Even if you seize someone's house, do you still want to go to someone else's house to remove mines?"

      The man said, "With our many years of seizure experience, usually as long as it's a villa, there are secret compartments in the basement where some valuable things are hidden, so my mission is to find them all and then seize them all according to the law!"

      As soon as the old lady Xiao heard this, she collapsed to the ground.

      Xiao Changqian's heart was also thudding, the man rushed into the villa after saying that, only then did Xiao Changqian hurriedly help the old lady up and asked after her, "Mom, what's in that batch of antiques of Dad's?"

      Old Mrs. Xiao said nervously, "There are two vases, an ancient painting, and some other antiques ......"

      Xiao Chang Qian hurriedly asked again, "Is there anything metal then?"

      "There is ......"The old lady panicked and said, "There is a bronze lamp from the Ming Dynasty, a set of pewter, and two pieces of horseshoe gold ......"

      Upon hearing this, Xiao Changqian slapped his thigh and said in great pain, "It's over!It's over!It's all over now!You hide all this stuff in the basement, they go down there and poke around with that thing and they'll find everything!"

      Afterwards, he pointed angrily at the old woman and scolded, "Told you that you were the greediest old woman!I told you long ago, take it out, take it out, take it out and I'll go get some money, you just won't take it!I'd rather die than take it!It would have been fine if you could have brought it into the coffin, but now you can't bring it with you when you die, it's all seized!"

      Old Mrs. Xiao was nervous as hell, her mouth was still strong, "It's impossible, they can't find it, I hid it so well that no one can find it but me!"

      Just after saying that, the person in charge came out from inside and directly came to the old lady and said in a cold voice, "Hello, we found a secret compartment in the basement of this house, which contains a number of antique artifacts and precious metals ......"

      Just after that, the old lady Xiao, who had just been helped up, sat back down on the ground, her face filled with despair.

      The person in charge said again, "Because this villa is in your name, we tacitly agree that the things in the secret compartment also belong to you, therefore, we are seizing this batch of artifacts and precious metals according to the law, and when the court auctions them in the future, these will be auctioned in public, and all the proceeds from the auction will be used to repay the debt you owe."

      "If the total amount of the auction exceeds your total debt, then the funds remaining after repaying the debt will be returned to you; if the total amount of the auction is less than your total debt, then the creditor has the right to continue to file a lawsuit against you!"

      After the man finished speaking, he took out a form and said to Old Mrs. Xiao, "If you heard what I just said clearly, please sign this."

      "I'm not signing!"Old Mrs. Xiao roared hysterically, "You have no right to seize my antiques!Those are my coffin books!"

      The person in charge said coldly, "Sorry, according to the law, these antiques have been seized by us, even if you don't sign, it won't change any established facts."

      After saying that, he directly turned around and returned to the villa.

      Old Mrs. Xiao's entire body went black before her eyes, and she instantly passed out ......





799

As soon as he saw that Old Lady Xiao had fainted, Xiao Changqian rushed over, grabbed the old lady by the collar and shook her furiously and vigorously!

      As soon as the old lady was unconscious, she was vigorously shaken awake again, and as soon as she opened her eyes, Xiao Changqian was furious and rebuked, "Didn't you say that no one could find the antiques except you?Now all these antiques are gone!It's all gone!!!!How do you expect us to live as a family?!"

      Old Mrs. Xiao's heart was aching, and was also crying at this time, her entire body was in tears of grief, wailing, "How did I know it would be like this, if I knew it would be like this, to death I wouldn't hide at home ah ......"

      At this point, Old Mrs. Xiao's tears couldn't stop falling: "It's over, this time it's really over, everything is over, my life's work is all over!"

      Xiao Hailong also despaired and cried, "This has nothing left, not even a night's meal ......There is no food at night, and I can still go hungry, but where can I sleep at night?We can't sleep on the street!"

      When she heard this, Vivian Xiao also broke down and cried out, "Wouldn't that mean we'd be living on the streets?I don't want it!"

      By this time, the staff had begun to move the family's previous items onto the truck.

      The old lady watched as all her antiques were sealed and taken away, crying loudly in the courtyard, wanting to rush up and grab them several times, but they were all stopped by the law enforcement officers.

      The more Xiao Changqian looked, the angrier he became, so angry that he wanted to give Old Lady Xiao a kick, this old lady is too selfish!Selfish in the extreme!

      The key to her selfishness also did not get any good results, all of these things are now confiscated, no doubt, there is no way to get back in this life.

      The family's worthless clothes and tattered furniture were all moved out by the staff and yarded on the curb outside the door one after another.

      When everything was almost moved, the court people put a seal on the door of the villa, and that person in charge came to the courtyard and said to the four Xiao family members, "We are now going to put a seal on the outside gate of the courtyard as well, please cooperate and move to the outside, you are already forbidden to enter here."

      "I'm not leaving!This is my house, why should I leave!"

      The old lady Xiao's eyes are red and swollen as she cries, and the way she looks is simply like in the Jin Yong novels, the wife who has been at the bottom of the well for decades and can only spit out jujube seeds, Qiu Qianzhu!

      It's been sealed off, to be clear, this is no longer your home, and if you continue to stay here, you're obstructing business!" the manager said.We have the right to detain you!"

      When Xiao Changqian's three mouths heard this, they were frightened and hurriedly went out.

      They didn't want to be caught and put in the detention center for a few days at this time.

      The old lady Xiao originally didn't want to leave, but at this time there was no one around her, not even a support person, so she could only cry and go out.

      Once out of the gate, the court put two seals on the gate as well, and then informed Old Mrs. Xiao once again, "You have three months to prepare the funds, and if the funds are not available after three months, these things will be auctioned, and if the auction is not enough to repay the debt, then you will be prosecuted!"

      Old Mrs. Xiao sat paralyzed at the entrance of her house, her face full of despair.

      The villa, which could at most be sold for seventeen or eighteen million, and the antiques and relics, which could at most be sold for ten million out of ten, may not add up to thirty million.

      However, the various debts of the Xiao Group currently added up to at least sixty million.

      This money is simply not enough ......




800

In other words, for the next three months, there is not a place to land, but after three months, there is a possibility that she will have to go to jail ......

      Old Mrs. Xiao was crying up and down, and almost snapped over several times.

      After the warning, the court did not say anything more to them and directly got into the car and left.

      The four members of the Xiao family could only sit helplessly on the roadside of their home, guarding a pile of tattered furniture and clothing and daily necessities and weeping inwardly.

      At this time, they were completely helpless.

      Unexpectedly at this time, the house leaked into the rain.

      A few security guards from the villa property rushed over and said to them, "You guys, please take your things with you and move out of our villa area as soon as possible, don't affect the appearance of our villa area here."

      "What did you say?!"Xiao Chang Qian scolded angrily, "I've lived here for almost twenty years, and you're saying that I'm affecting the appearance of this place?And kick me out?!"

      The other party said coldly, "Excuse me, I also received a notice that you are no longer our property owners here, since you have lived here before, you must know that our community is closed management and does not allow outsiders to enter, so please leave as soon as possible."

      Saying that, he pointed at the large pile of things on the roadside and said, "These things also ask you to move out as soon as possible, if you don't, our property will default to these being abandoned items and dispose of them freely."

      Xiao Chang Qian trembled with anger and cursed, "Bullying!I'll fight you!"

      A couple of strong security guards immediately stepped forward and shoved him, snapping, "What do you want?You want to do it?There are more than a dozen of us in the security team, how many can you beat?!"

      Xiao Changqian puffed up.

      Xiao Hailong in the back was furious and scolded, "Beware of me calling to complain about you!"

      The security guard sneered, "Complaining about us?We did everything by the book, so who are you to complain about us?I'm telling you, none of you are owners of our community now, and if you still stay here, I'll call the police and arrest you!"

      "You ......"Xiao Hailong wanted to open his mouth to curse, but when he saw the other party's menacing demeanor, he suddenly wilted again.

      Xiao Chang Qian knew that it was useless for him to rely on this place now, and he was really unreasonable, the house had been seized, and he was naturally not the owner of the community, so it was only right and proper that he be kicked out.

      So he could only sigh and said to a few people, "Pack up your things, only bring what is useful and valuable, and leave the rest here for them to deal with on their own!"

      Xiao Weiwei cried, "Dad, where can we go now?"

      Xiao Chang Qian shook his head and lamented, "I don't know, but it's not a good idea to continue to stay here ......"

      Xiao Hailong also cried, wiped his tears and said, "Dad, why don't we go and beg my second uncle ......Apologize to him, admit your fault, and beg him to take us in, didn't Second Aunt's circle of friends say that her villa has ten bedrooms?It's enough to beg them to give us two rooms, the two of us will sleep in one room, and let Weiwei sleep in one room with grandma ......"

      Xiao Changqian's face was even uglier than a bitter melon and sighed, "What you said is simple, what kind of person is that second aunt of yours, don't you have any idea in your heart?It's too late for her to laugh at us at this point, so how could she be so kind as to take us in and give us a room!"

      Old Mrs. Xiao, who had been silent, suddenly stood up and gritted her teeth and said, "Go to Thomson One!I'll die in front of Thompson's today, even if I have to!If Xiao Changkun and Ma Lan don't take us in, I'm going to sue them for abandoning the elderly!"
