Rags To Riches Chapter 203-204

 Chapter 203

"Pure, as a friend and as a senior, let me tell you something."

                "Look how hard it is for you to live alone, your family can't help you and it becomes a burden to you."

                "Let me introduce someone to you, right? I guarantee it's a good man, you can get along for a while first, if it's not suitable, pull back, he will be able to protect you."

                Bai Yuchun looked at these few pieces of confidence, the words really stuck in his heart.

                Bai Yuchun looked at the screen and pondered for a long time, biting her lip in aggravation, saying, "But I don't want to be protected by other people."

                At this moment, she, who was full of Qin Ming, didn't even want to go looking for a boyfriend, being used to being single anyway.

                "I'm still focused on my studies, no need for that." Bai Yuchun replied back before flopping onto the bed and crying.

                At school, Qin Ming sighed as he walked along, his good intentions rejected.

                He could see that Bai Yuchun had a bit of a crush on him, but he felt that he was not destined to return this feeling, so why hang on to her?

                It would be better for everyone if he broke it off early.

                Qin Ming doesn't want to cheat at all, even though Bai Yuchun is very popular, has the reputation of being the commoner school girl and is pretty, but the person he likes now is Nie Haitang, and he won't do anything to wrong his girlfriend.

                So he plans to introduce Qi Minghui to Bai Yuchun, and then failing that, Zhou Yu.

                Both of them are young, talented, rich and promising quality youths who also follow him around, and both of them will not have a bad day when he is prosperous.

                But they were rejected.

                Qin Ming didn't think much of it and muttered, "The main thing is to study ...... too, the exams are coming up, and if I rank low, the scholarship will go down the drain. I have to work hard too."

                After saying that, Qin Ming spat at himself, "Tsk, I'm the richest person in the world and I care about a few thousand scholarships? Can't I escape the Law of True Fragrance either?"

                The next day, Qin Ming was planning to go and have lunch with Nie Haitang after class.

                "Qin Ming." Zhang Xiaoyan called out to him and said, "I have something to see you, come here for a moment."

                Qin Ming followed Zhang Xiaoyan outside the teaching building, only to see Zhang Xiaoyan hand over a bank card and smiled, "Qin Ming, the money from the super tycoon's bounty during the last live broadcast at Century Mansion, the platform settled it for me early, I got a share of two million eight hundred thousand after taxes, then we each got half, there's one million four hundred thousand in this card."

                "What?" Qin Ming snorted and said, "Why are you giving me money? I haven't done anything."

                Zhang Xiaoyan said, "You deserve a lot of credit. Without you, I wouldn't have been able to get in. I was stopped at the door by that bastard Zhao Fugui. And wasn't that Boss Qi's generous reward for your sake? I clashed with the other big anchors on the platform at the back, thanks to you helping me stabilise, otherwise I would have had to go off air in disgrace."

                Zhang Xiaoyan grabbed Qin Ming's hand and tucked it in, saying, "Money, I can earn it slowly, now that the live broadcast is getting better and better, it is also highly valued by the platform. Hey hey, I will earn more in the future. But one cannot forget one's roots, have you forgotten who encouraged me to live stream in the first place?"

                After hearing this, Qin Ming also felt quite emotional.

                Speaking of which, back in freshman year, it was Qin Ming who encouraged Zhang Xiaoyan to go live.

                During their freshman year, both of them were looking for part-time jobs, and they even delivered takeaways together for a while.

                Later on, Qin Ming saw the online live streaming and told Zhang Xiaoyan that she was so pretty and also met the attributes that internet geeks like to have "huge breasts", so why not do some live streaming, just in case she got a hit?

                Zhang Xiaoyan was also encouraged to start live streaming, although it was not hot, but with her looks and hard work, she still earned some money, which was much better than going part-time.

                Qin Ming accepted it nonchalantly and said, "Alright, who are we with, I won't be pretentious with you, if you have trouble in the future, look for me."

                Zhang Xiaoyan jealously nudged her chin and said, "I wouldn't dare, I'm afraid your girlfriend would be jealous. Look, she's even coming to you."

                Qin Ming followed her line of sight and saw that Nie Haitang had come looking for him.

                Zhang Xiaoyan patted him on the shoulder and said, "Now you're a millionaire, buy a good set of clothes and dress up properly so that you won't be underestimated all the time, I know you're very capable."

                She smiled politely as she passed by Nie Haitang, "There you are, big school girl."

                Qin Ming stepped forward and asked, "Begonia, I was just going to look for you."

                Nie Haitang said absentmindedly, "Yes."

                Qin Ming's heart thumped, what was wrong with her?

                He grabbed Nie Haitang's small catkin hand, which was a little cold, and asked, "What's wrong? Sulking?"

                Nie Haitang squeezed out a smile and said, "I'm looking for you to have dinner with me."

                Qin Ming happily responded, "Okay, where to? Qin Lou, right?"

                Nie Haitang shook her head and said, "No, I've made my own box lunch, shall we go to Wiming Lake?"

                At the gazebo by the Wei Ming Lake, with no one around to disturb them, Qin Ming savoured Nie Haitang's cooking, fried chicken, stir-fried squid and white-hot cauliflower.

                The dish was a little salty and tasted unfortunate, just one step away from being hard to swallow. Nie Haitang, who was obviously so good, was not good at cooking.

                Qin Ming was a little depressed, did this mean that the family would have to hire a chef in the future and he wouldn't have much chance to eat his wife's handmade dishes?

                Nie Haitang asked expectantly, "How is it? Is it tasty?"

                Qin Ming immediately gave a thumbs up and praised, "Delicious, very delicious, I'm just hungry, I want to eat more."

                Nie Haitang patted her chest reassuringly and said, "Is that so? Great, I was afraid you would have trouble swallowing it."

                After eating and drinking enough, Qin Ming felt that Nie Haitang still had something on her mind, so he asked, "Haitang, is there something you want to tell me?"

                Nie Haitang's expression was stunned, and her eyes seemed to have suppressed sadness.

                She said, "Yes. There's something I want to say to you. You should close your eyes first."

                Qin Ming thought he was going to give him some kind of surprise, so he closed his eyes.

                Suddenly, Qin Ming's lips went soft, it was Nie Haitang who hooked his neck and tilted her head up to kiss Qin Ming's lips, the soft touch made him even hotter.

                Qin Ming thought to himself that she was really surprising him, but being so proactive took Qin Ming by surprise, this was not the usual reserved Nie Haitang ah.

                Nie Haitang said, "Don't open your eyes."

                Qin Ming thought to himself, "Is there a surprise? So he kept his eyes closed.

                But he did not know that Nie Haitang stood up, the whole person had already cried into tears, tears like a flood rushing down the river, she desperately tried to hold back, her body was constantly pumping out, to keep herself from crying out.

                Then she took out a letter from her lv bag and placed it next to Qin Ming.

                Nie Haitang suppressed her emotions and continued, "Don't open your eyes yet oh."

                Qin Ming said happily, "Okay, I won't open my eyes."

                Qin Ming kept his eyes closed and after almost five minutes, he felt nothing, he hurriedly called out, "Haitang, what's wrong? Nothing?"

                He couldn't help but open his eyes to find a breeze blowing past here in the gazebo of the unnamed lake, and he was alone, Nie Haitang was gone.

                Taken away? No. Then how come nothing happened to him at all?

                Qin Ming saw a letter left on the bench?

                He took it and wrote it up: "Qin Ming, I'm sorry, I'm going to a far, far away place and I can never come back, forget me. I have failed you in this life, in the next life, I will find you, goodbye."

                Qin Ming scrambled to his feet, what was this? A prank?


                Qin Ming immediately searched everywhere around Lake Wei Ming, calling out loudly, but where was there any sign of Nie Haitang? It was as if she had suddenly disappeared.

                "Haitang? Stop it, come out now."

                "Haitang ......! Where are you?"

Chapter 204

Nie Haitang had disappeared, leaving behind only a letter.

                Qin Ming had been looking for her for almost an hour at Lake Wiming, and was close to jumping into the lake to find her.

                But the letter he left behind suddenly said things like "I'm sorry" and "goodbye".

                Is this a rhythm to break up with him?

                Qin Ming hurriedly shook his head: "No, it wasn't explicitly said, I can't guess blindly. She's probably just messing with me."

                Qin Ming really couldn't figure it out, he was still fine at the charity gala at Century Mansion before, Nie Haitang had even looked for her all night that night because she was worried about him, and said that she would love her and love her all the time in the future, and they even slept in the same bed that night.

                It's impossible that they would suddenly break up after only two days.

                After spending a hundred dollars to bribe the hostess aunt, he went to Nie Haitang's dormitory, but all the girls in the same dormitory said they hadn't come back after class.

                Qin Ming went to Nie Haitang's best friend, Zhang Qingqing, who retorted that if your boyfriend didn't know, how could she, a schoolmate,?

                This made Qin Ming shut himself up straight away.

                Qin Ming searched back and forth within the school for the entire noon, he had an unsettling feeling, could it be that Chang Huan had sent an assassin who had abducted her and was waiting to threaten him?

                But Song Ying said he hadn't received any threats and that Chang Huan was in a difficult position to protect himself because the blonde girl he had turned last time had returned to Magnesia and was spreading evidence of Chang Huan's crimes everywhere, and Chang Huan was now in Magnesia with all kinds of lawsuits.

                Qin Ming was puzzled, why on earth would this happen?

                Nie Haitang suddenly disappeared? One minute she's kissing and the next she's gone?

                He grabbed Nie Zhengming and pinned him against the wall, asking, "Did you do this?"

                Nie Zhengming was pinned against the wall and said; "What did I do? Are you crazy, Qin Ming?"

                Qin Ming asked, "Where is Haitang? Where is she?"

                Nie Zhengming was shocked and said, "Did she really break up with you?"

                Upon hearing this, Qin Ming became furious and punched Nie Zhengming in the stomach and landed another right hook, knocking him to the ground.

                "Ah!" Nie Zhengming didn't fight back, lying on the ground in some pain, wiping the blood from the corner of his mouth, and said, "Enough beating? What I owed you before, I've repaid."

                Qin Ming asked, "You're a man of your word, am I that annoying to you? Keep stopping me from being with Haitang?"

                Nie Zhengming exclaimed, "I didn't! Last time I said I agreed for you to be together, I didn't mess up."

                Qin Ming questioned loudly, "Then why has Haitang disappeared? Suddenly you're saying goodbye to me?"

                Nie Zhengming was silent and hesitated again, not speaking.

                Qin Ming grabbed him by the collar and said, "Say something? Why? Haitang she was kissing me one second and then disappeared the next, why is that?"

                "She won't let me talk." Nie Zhengming said bitterly.

                Qin Ming shouted irritably, "If you don't tell me, I'll throw you into the Pacific Ocean and feed you to the fish, do you believe me?"

                Nie Zhengming understood him with a glance, hesitated for a moment, but still said, "Haitang she ...... she found out about cancer, late stage."

                Qin Ming's brain suddenly went blank, cancer?

                This word, which he had never come across in his twenty years of living, suddenly appeared in front of him, and he was a little overwhelmed, saying, "What, what cancer? How did cancer appear out of nowhere?"

                "Liver cancer." Nie Zhengming sat on the floor, sighing and covering his face, he was equally distressed and said, "It didn't appear out of nowhere, everyone in our family, we have regular annual medical checkups. The medical check-up was done last week, only yesterday it was sent over, and my sister only found out about the condition yesterday at noon, she was in a bad mood all day yesterday."

                Qin Ming's heart twitched, he said so, from noon yesterday to noon today, Nie Haitang had not contacted him, even a text message, she surprisingly suffered that kind of bad news in silence.

                Qin Ming suddenly felt physically weak and leaned against a side wall, saying, "That silly girl, there is a disease that can be cured. Why do you want to go alone? I will walk with her. I can take care of her too."

                Nie Zheng said helplessly, "My mother is taking her to the magnesium country for treatment, she said she will become ugly after doing the treatment, she doesn't want you to see her become ugly and lose all her hair, she said she wants you to remember her beauty for the rest of your life."

                Qin Ming also sat helplessly on the floor, a painful look appearing on his face.

                His mind was now full of Nie Haitang's melancholy look before he parted ways, why hadn't he thought of that? Why did he still say useless bullshit and not go and discover Nie Haitang's illness?

                Qin Ming suddenly stood up and asked, "I want to accompany her, which hospital in which state of Magnesia is she going to for treatment?"

                Nie Zhengming looked at him with a serious face and said, "I couldn't have told you in the first place. I was planning to go out of town to avoid you, but I didn't expect you to find me. If you still want to meet her, go to the airport right now, the flight is at three in the afternoon."

                Qin Ming took out his mobile phone and saw that it was two forty, and I was afraid that the tickets were already being checked in now.

                He immediately ran towards the villa estate on top of Cloud Mountain.

                Qin Ming's sudden arrival surprised Song Ying and said, "Young master? What's going on?"

                Qin Ming said, "Is the helicopter working? I need to go to the airport right away."

                Song Ying said, "Anytime, please don't worry young master, it will be ready to take off immediately."

                Now was a time to race for time, the airport control was very strict, Qin Ming started thinking about this as soon as he got on the plane.

                Qin Ming muttered, "Lying about the bomb definitely won't work, and neither will forcing the flight to have problems. Xiao Ying, do you have any way to make the 3 o'clock flight to Magnesium wait a little?"

                Song Ying asked, "For such a trivial matter, you don't even need to ask Young Master, I'll give a greeting to the person in charge of the airport and he'll have a reason to delay the flight at that one point a little."

                Qin Ming's heart was pleased, this was considered an exercise of privilege, and once again, Qin Ming was glad that being rich was really cool.

                However, he said seriously, "Don't be too flashy, originally, it's not good to affect other people flying because of my personal matter. If it wasn't an emergency, I wouldn't have done this. Afterwards, have the airport send some small gifts to the guests of that flight to make amends, on my account."

                Song Ying did as she was told.

                At Guangzhou International Airport, a flight to Magnesium was about to take off when it received a notice that the runway had not yet been cleared and was forbidden to take off.

                In a few moments, a helicopter with special access landed at the airport in Guangzhou, and Qin Ming quickly got off the plane.

                He couldn't let Nie Haitang go like that, he had to go for a long time together.

                But what Qin Ming didn't know was that on the other side of the runway, a flight to Gouzhou was slowly taking off, and Nie Haitang was leaning against the window in silence.

                On the side, Nie's mother said comfortingly, "It's okay, the medical technology over there in Gull Island is more advanced, it will definitely be cured."

                After saying this, an odd smile appeared on Nie's mother's face.

                Nie Haitang, whose head was leaning against the window, was silent. She had researched and found that the survival rate for advanced liver cancer was not high.

                And even if she was cured, her whole person would be changed, too many cancer patients changed drastically after having treatment, she was a girl who loved beauty and it was a bit hard to accept that she had gone from a youthful and beautiful flower girl to an ugly woman.

                So she chose to run away.

                Nie Haitang looked out the window at the blue sky and mumbled under her breath, "Qin Ming ...... is sorry, forgive me. I like you, then I can't drag you down even more. There are many good girls in the world, you will definitely find a better one than me."

                Phew, the plane took off into the blue sky.

                And Qin Ming stopped the flight to Magnesium, but he searched for a long time in the cabin but could not find Nie Haitang.

                Suddenly, an unfamiliar number gave Qin Ming a message, "Qin Ming, this is Nie Zhengming, I've been tricked, my sister she's going on a flight to Gull Island, can you still make it?"

                Qin Ming was startled, and when he looked up, it was a plane whizzing past overhead, his heart became empty in vain.
