Rags To Riches Chapter 243-244

 Chapter 243

When Zhang Yao saw that her daughter finally wanted to inquire a little, she was very happy and immediately took out a stack of information with her and said: "The old Qin family, the old family in Shanghai. Although we know all the big and small gentry in China, but a very low-key super gentry, ordinary people will not know, because basically there are very few relevant reports, because no one dares to report. Especially ......"

                Nie Haitang interrupted uninterestedly and said, "Then which son of this old Qin family is nicer to talk to? More kind?"

                Zhang Yao said, "Well ...... the third son, Qin Shou, twenty-five years old this year, a senior student from Cambridge University in England, a man of elegance and easy-going reputation is very good ...... eh, what are you laughing at?"

                "Hehehe, Qin Shou, the beast, huh?" Nie Haitang was amused and said, "Who came up with this name? Won't you think of the harmonic sound?"

                Zhang Yao rolled her eyes and said, "With the background of their old Qin family, who would dare to make fun of this name? Moreover, this name was given by a famous Taoist master who had his fortune told back then, meaning longevity. If you want to meet people, don't laugh at them and upset them."

                Nie Haitang added, "So we'll meet later?"

                Zhang Yao was delighted and put her arm around her daughter, "Yes, if you want to meet her, I will go and arrange it right away. My daughter has finally come to her senses. As long as you can marry into such a top-notch family, it's worth it for me to be an evil person for so long. You change into an old-fashioned style outfit, that Qin Shou is a fan of Chinese costumes, you have to pitch in."

                Nie Haitang rolled her eyes speechlessly, so if he was a sm lover? Shouldn't you bring a leather whip and a small candle? Can you believe such a matchmaking corner? It was almost like an ancient emperor choosing a concubine, not treating people like human beings.

                She muttered in her mind, "Fine, I'll put up with it in order to trick my phone into contacting Qin Ming again."

                Nie Haitang put on a palace antique costume and walked carefully, looking around as she went, noticing that outside this old German castle, a steady stream of cars drove in, and one by one, women from all over the world, with different styles, walked in.

                Nie Haitang was really disgusted by these so-called rich people's blind dates, but she had no money now, and it was difficult for her to move around in a foreign country. She thought better of it and cheated to get a mobile phone so that she could contact Qin Ming and seek his help.

                Nie Haitang said to herself, "Luckily I had memorised Qin Ming's mobile phone number before, otherwise I really wouldn't have been able to find anyone to help."

                In one of the rooms of the European-style ancient castle, a long table, decorated with flowers and silverware, a refined man in a casual suit, was looking at a piece of information at the other end of the table, and when he saw Nie Haitang enter, he was stunned, unable to take his eyes off Nie Haitang.

                Obviously, Qin Shou was very interested in Nie Haitang's Chinese costume, which was the right choice.

                Zhang Yao saw Qin Shou's distracted look and was delighted. She sent her daughter away and then withdrew, leaving Nie Haitang and Qin Shou alone in the large room.

                Nie Haitang looked at Qin Shou, but he was a talented man with an elegant appearance, with the air of a son of a powerful family, but his eyes made her uncomfortable, different from Qin Ming's clear eyes.

                Qin Shou said with a smile, "Hello, Miss Nie is much more beautiful in real life than in photos, she is indeed naturally beautiful, she doesn't even need make-up to look better than those women with make-up. And you are very elegant, you look beautiful in ancient costumes."

                Nie Haitang said calmly, "Thanks for the compliment. But I think that everyone gets younger, gets older, gets ugly, and people who care about appearance are vulgar."

                Qin Shou laughed, "You are right. But I'm just a vulgar person, it's normal for me to like beautiful women. Especially a real beauty like you, Miss Nie. I heard that you are the one who arrived a few days ago and suddenly escaped, you really have character, why run out again when you are here? It's not like we're going to eat anyone."

                Nie Haitang said, "I didn't want to come at all because my mother disliked my boyfriend for being poor and set me up to trick me into coming."

                Qin Shou was stunned and laughed again, "Hahahaha, that's funny. To be honest, I've had quite a few blind dates, and even countless people willing to have a one-night stand with me and become my lover. You're the first to show that you were tricked into it, is this your set up?"

                Nie Haitang had a pout on her face and said, "That, Mr. Qin I'm sorry to disturb your blind date, actually I would like to ask you to do me a small favour, can you? I want to make a phone call to my boyfriend, he will try to find a way to save me."

                "......" Qin Shou was silent for a moment, he crossed his legs and said, "Miss Nie, I'm not obliged to do that. You are beautiful and I quite like you, but your family background is rather average and not worthy of my status. How about you being my in lover? 10 million a year to spend, and if you give birth to a son to reward just your family boss, the market value is guaranteed to exceed 10 billion, and the son you give birth to also has the family inheritance of our old Qin family. Finally, our family's influence can also give your Nie family a lot of help in Guang City, which can give your Nie family a lot of room for promotion and expansion in the short term."

                Nie Haitang was dumbfounded, she just wanted to borrow a mobile phone and this man was asking her to be his lover? This is outrageous, what kind of person is this?

                She gritted her teeth and said, "Didn't I tell you? I was tricked into coming here, I don't really want to have a blind date, I'm sorry if I interrupt your blind date, but please respect me."

                Qin Shou rested his hand on his chin and ran his fingers over his lips as he looked at Nie Haitang and said, "The information your mother provided me with also mentioned that person called Qin Ming, and it seems that you have only just been dating each other. A poor boy from a mountain village with high academic results, but ultimately without power and influence, he will just be a wage earner in the future, and if he attaches himself to your Nie family, he will indeed be able to work 20 years less than others. But is there anything about me that is inferior to him?"

                Nie Haitang stood up angrily and said disgustedly, "You are not better than him in any way, no, you don't deserve to be compared to him."

                She turned around and walked away, not having borrowed the phone, but suffering a lot of anger, she was very angry.

                Qin Shou raised the corners of his mouth playfully and said, "Wait a minute, Miss Nie please don't be angry, I was just testing you, I didn't expect Miss Nie to have high sentiments and not be moved by money and profit, I admire you more and more."

                Nie Haitang questioned, "What do you mean? Will you lend me your phone?"

                Qin Shou pushed the phone on the countertop and it rolled slippery in front of Nie Haitang, saying, "I mean, I was teasing you with what I said earlier, hehehe. I hope you don't take it to heart, Miss Nie, you can use my phone, make it easy for yourself with others, be my guest."

                Nie Haitang's heart was pleased and her attitude eased up quite a bit as she said, "Thank you."

                Nie Haitang immediately called Qin Ming, but Qin Ming's mobile phone couldn't be reached.

                She was depressed, how come she couldn't get through again?

                Nie Haitang thought of the last time she spoke, Qin Ming's phone seemed to have been snatched away by a woman with a familiar voice, but she couldn't remember who it was, and they had an argument, and in the end she heard a falling sound, and then there was no signal.

                Nie Haitang guessed it should be Qin Ming's mobile phone that had fallen into the water and then broken.

                Nie Haitang guessed in her mind, "It's supposed to be night time in the country, so it's probably too late to get the phone repaired. Tsk, what bad luck. Let's send him a message first, sooner or later he'll see it too."

                Nie Haitang messaged Qin Ming, then returned the phone and said, "Thanks, I ...... I misunderstood you. I hope your blind date went well, also, can you tell my mum that I'm not your type and heckle her, I want to go back early."

                Qin Shou laughed, "Yes, yes, Miss Nie you're so funny."

                After Nie Haitang walked out of the meeting hall, Qin Shou cupped a profile of Nie Haitang in his hand and casually ticked a box with that pen, saying with interest, "I've been on almost fifty dates, finally I've met a decent one."

                A short while later, Zhang Yao walked in, smiling a modest and amiable smile, while there was awe in her eyes as she asked, "Third young master, I wonder how our Haitang is doing?"

                Qin Shou said, "Your daughter is very good, her figure and looks, her learning and personality, all very good. But your Nie family ...... is honestly only worthy of being described as a gentry in Guang City, not even a family, there is a bit of a gap in the gentry and it doesn't help me much in the fight for the family fortune. I want her to be my lover, and if she can give me a son, the first son has the right to inherit my property. That's the biggest condition I can offer, what do you think?"

                As Zhang Yao listened, a look of disappointment surfaced on her face, but at the same time she was secretly happy, if the daughter of the Nie family gave birth to a child who had the inheritance rights of the old Qin family's third youngest, it would be a great honour.

                Zhang Yao hurriedly said, "It is also possible to be the third young man's lover. Haitang is a good girl, but she is a bit stubborn, so I can talk her out of it."

                Qin Shou said, "Well, then you should cooperate with me and put on a show, so that I can gain her goodwill. Oh, there is no woman in this world that I, Qin Shou, cannot conquer."

                After Qin Shou finished speaking, he opened his mobile phone and looked at Qin Ming's number that Nie Haitang had just dialed, his eyes revealing a meaningful gaze.

Chapter 244

Guangzhou City, Century Building, the boss's exclusive office.

                Qin Ming pointed to his Huawei thousand dollar machine and said to a subordinate, "My machine has always been fine, it doesn't get stuck watching live streams, it's just that it's got water in it, just now it worked when I tried it, but after a while it didn't work again, I'm afraid there's something wrong with the circuit board, check it out and try to fix it."

                The employee said, "Yes boss, I repair all the electronic products and computers of the staff in the whole building, such a small problem, it takes less than half an hour."

                He then asked, "But boss, your phone is quite old, why don't you get a new one?"

                Qin Ming shook his head and said, "There is a photo inside that is very important to me. Besides, I don't have much time to play games, read web pages or anything like that, so I'll just use it."

                Within ten minutes or so, the man fixed the phone and said, "The card has been put in and can be used normally, but I suggest that the boss can get two phones and also a secondary card, so that if something goes wrong with the main card, the secondary card can also receive messages, so as not to delay important things."

                When Qin Ming heard this, he made an embarrassment, why hadn't he thought of this?

                He patted the employee on the shoulder, as expected of someone in a big company, thoughtful, and said, "OK, go to the finance and collect the 50,000 bonus."

                The employee was overjoyed to hear that he would get a 50,000 bonus for just getting a mobile phone, and the boss seemed to appreciate him, so he felt that it was worth working with such a boss.

                Qin Ming picked up his phone and felt that it was much faster. When he saw the wallpaper on his phone, it was Nie Haitang's smile, he felt much warmer inside and there was a text message.

                Qin Ming tapped it open and his eyes lit up, it was from Nie Haitang to him.

                "Qin Ming, my illness was a medical test was a misdiagnosis, so I don't have cancer. But my phone was robbed and I had an argument with my mum, she didn't buy me a new phone, but you don't have to worry about me. I should be able to go back soon, miss you."

                After reading the text message, Qin Ming smiled, giggling like a child, the gloom in his heart cleared away with unbridled joy.

                Qin Ming walked back and forth in excitement, holding his mobile phone: "Misdiagnosis, so it was a misdiagnosis, great, Haitang does not have liver cancer. It's better, everything is better."

                After Qin Ming's elation, he was puzzled again, "Could it be that that joining the family to cure the misfortune really works? The old magician said that if I joined the family and met the nobleman Mu Hao to help me, it would dissolve the deadly knot in my fate, and now it seems that everything is indeed moving in a good direction."

                That's how people are, when they are confused they believe in everything and throw themselves at the doctor when they are sick; when they are sober they doubt themselves and pretend to be reflecting; when they are happy they accept everything and it doesn't matter.

                No matter what Qin Ming thought, he got the news that Nie Haitang was not ill, which meant that everything was over.

                Qin Ming immediately called the number back, but could not get through, indicating that the number was an advanced band protected number and he did not have permission to call it.

                This is a special number put out by the communications company, which can only be called out, no one else can get in, and the caller ID is also a series of garbled codes, this kind of number is not something that the ordinary rich and powerful can get, and generally would not know, it must be someone with a very special identity who can get it.

                Qin Ming didn't get through, thinking it might be Nie Haitang who had an inconvenient situation, so he didn't look deeper.

                Qin Ming changed into a clean set of clothes and took a taxi to the Mu family.

                When he returned to the Mu family, it was already after eleven o'clock. He had just entered the door when he saw Mu Hao reading a document, and when he saw Qin Ming, he said, "Ah Qin Ming, you are at least the son-in-law of our Mu family, and you signed an agreement not to do things that disgrace the Mu family, how can you hit someone in public?"

                Qin Ming retorted, "If you don't hit people, how can your daughter's company's luxury brand be on the influential catwalk in all of Asia? Or a grand finale appearance?"

                After hearing this, Mu Hao said to Xu Shulan, who was watching the TV, "Listen, I told you, Qin Ming is not the kind of person who is impulsive and presumptuous, and he did this for Xiaoqiao. What's wrong with hitting someone? If he was a scum, he would have beaten him up, can't our Mu family even defend Qin Ming in this matter?"

                Qin Ming's heart warmed, although Mu Hao was obnoxious at first when he talked to him about the terms of the door, he was instead the best for Qin Ming in this family.

                Xu Shulan still seemed unsatisfied and said, "Then what's the matter with him beating Xiaochun? Ah? Eating my food, living in my house, using my money, marrying my elder daughter and beating my younger daughter? This son-in-law of yours has a big enough temper, huh?"

                When Qin Ming heard this, he immediately surged with anger and said, "Beating her is considered light, I didn't waste her because of my father-in-law's face."

                "You!" Xu Shulan was furious, she got up and pointed at Qin Ming, "You, you've turned over a new leaf, you've only been home for a few days, you don't behave honestly, you're out fooling around, you've caused a lot of trouble for Xiaoqiao, and you've come back to beat up my Xiaochun. Get lost, there's no place in this house."

                Qin Ming's heart was pleased, this Xu Shu Lan was really a noblewoman playing a powerful game, all slutty, just what he wanted, so he could take advantage of the situation and divorce Mu Xiao Qiao.

                Anyway, if everything was as the godly old man Zhang had said, then his robbery had been dissolved and he could file for divorce.

                Qin Ming said, "Then let's get a divorce!"

                As soon as the words left his mouth, the upstairs door opened and Mu Xiao Qiao walked out, even the nanny who was mopping the floor looked up and over, Mu Hao looked straight up at him.

                Xu Shulan was overjoyed, she was begging for it and said, "Yes, do it right away."

                Mu Hao got up and scolded, "Shut up! Qin Ming, what kind of words are you saying?"

                Qin Ming grimaced and said in a low voice, "Boss Mu, I'm not going to hide it from you, but my robbery has already melted away. The godly old man has said that I will be able to get a divorce. Isn't the trouble with your family your father's illness? For him to be happy, he has also woken up, there is still the Nanshan Sanatorium level of service, there won't be any more problems. I can see that Master Mu has deep connections and extensive relationships in Guangcheng, and is a major pillar of the Mu family. Now that our robbery has all melted away, let's get a divorce then."

                Mu Hao's face sank, he hadn't heard Real Zhang say that the marriage could still be divorced! Real Zhang had said that if Qin Ming's eight characters were to be separated from Mu Xiaoqiao's, then the Mu family's troubles would keep on flowing until they were gone.

                Mu Hao said loudly, "No, I don't agree."

                Upstairs, Mu Sichen poked her head out, that delicate cheek still swollen with a red mark from a slap, and said, "Dad, why don't you agree? This kind of door-to-door son-in-law, he even beats your daughter, he has a tendency to domestic violence, he can't guarantee to beat his sister in the future."

                Mu Xiaoqiao, wearing a nightgown, stood upstairs as if she were an iceberg, looking indifferently at what was happening downstairs, she was no longer praying for her fate.

                Mu Hao pulled Qin Ming and came up to while side, saying seriously, "Qin Ming, you can't get a divorce, once you get a divorce, something will happen, understand? There is a place for you in this family, don't be stimulated by angry words."

                Qin Ming ignored him and said, "Boss Mu, you're too superstitious, it's the 21st century, human space stations have gone to the universe, feng shui metaphysics is still limited to our country, things like fortune telling, it's outdated."

                Mu Hao said, "Qin Ming, don't be presumptuous, I have eaten more salt than you have eaten rice. Zhang Zhen Zhen is never wrong, and ......"

                Beep beep beep, Mu Hao's mobile phone suddenly rang, he immediately picked up the phone, only after listening to a few words, his face changed, "What? My dad is in a coma again?"

                The expressions of everyone in the Mu family changed drastically, and they all looked at Mu Hao with anxiety.

                Mu Hao picked up the car keys and said, "Quickly, hurry up and go to Nanshan Sanatorium."

                Qin Ming narrowed his eyes, so evil?
