As the matter stood, Wang Shu could definitely not tell the man who that person was! Who knows what this man wanted to do; what if he found him and wanted to kill him?!
“I am just asking casually,” I also realized my tone wasn’t right, so I quickly recovered my original voice.
“I won’t tell you,” Wang Shu said, “You don’t need to know.”
“Is he also Chinese?” I continued to ask.
“So what if he is? I will still not tell you who he is!” Wang Shu said firmly.
“Oh? Tell me who he is!” I lowered my tone.
“No!” Wang Shu shook her head, “He has nothing to do with you, and I don’t even know if he likes me or not, so you don’t have to know so much!”
“Don’t you want me to help you?” I asked.
“I want, but why do you have to know so many of my matters?” Wang Shu also asked.
“Because I want my woman’s heart to be with me, not thinking about someone else!” I said faintly.
“You…” Before Wang Shu could say anything, I calmly placed the newspaper on the table in front of me.
“How come it is you!” Wang Shu exclaimed. She couldn’t help but reveal a surprised expression on her face.
“Why can’t it be me?” I smiled and stood up, “I also want to know, is the person you said you liked, me?”
“No!” Wang Shu suddenly said with anger, “You thought doing this would be fun?”
“What?” I was stunned. She was calm just a moment ago, so why did she get so angered in the next moment? That old saying was indeed true: “A woman’s mood flips faster than the pages of a book!”
“Wang Shu, what happened? Are you not happy?”
“Happy? Humph, pretending to be a bigshot who bought me — using your money to trample on my self-respect — you must have thought it would be amusing?” Tears flowed down Wang Shu’s face as she spoke, “Do you know how I have been living these days? I was in so much pain, was being forced to do things I didn’t want to do! Do you know how much determination I had to gather before I walked into this room?”
I understood that I had gone too far while playing around, so I immediately went over to hug Wang Shu, but Wang Shu pushed me away and said, “Do you like to play tricks on people? Do you like to see me lose all face? Did seeing my pained appearance make you happy? I was just thinking about you in my heart, but here you are playing tricks on me!”
“Wang Shu… I didn’t mean that…” I quickly went towards her and said, “Actually, I also wanted to know if you had me in your heart, so I didn’t dare to rashly come before you!”
Listening to my words, Wang Shu’s face turned red, but soon she showed an indignant expression and said, “All of you men are like this! Selfish! Will I only matter if I have you in my heart? So long as you had me in your heart, couldn’t you fight for a place in mine, ah? Now that you have made me say it on my own initiative, you must be feeling very smug?”
“I… Alright, Wang Shu, my Little Shu, don’t be angry… It was all my fault. Next time, I will certainly take the initiative to win you over!” I immediately hugged Wang Shu. Fortunately, she didn’t try to push me away this time.
“Humph! So there’s still going to be another time? You are just uttering flowery words!” Wang Shu said with anger.
“Do you want to skip falling in love and directly get married? Is this how youngsters do things nowadays?” I said, “Isn’t there a book called <<Let’s Fall In Love Again, Wife!>>?”
“What! What nonsense are you spouting!” Wang Shu rolled her eyes at me, but her expression became gentle, “This time, was it you who helped me?”
“Eh, of course, it was me. Since you encountered trouble, how could I not come to your side!” I said.
“How much did it cost?” Wang Shu asked with some hesitation. She wanted to know how much I spent for her. If there was a chance in the future, she will pay me back.
“Why are you asking? You want to pay me back?” I asked.
“I can’t afford it now, but I will have money later,” Wang Shu said.
“I didn’t do it to buy you, it was something I ought to do!” I said with a smile.
“That’s not good. Principles are principles. I don’t want our relationship to be entangled with money!” Wang Shu shook her head.
“Alright, I will calculate it for you!” Saying this, I closed my eyes and started to mumble, pretending to be calculating the expenses.
Wang Shu’s had a nervous expression. She was a very strong woman, so even if the other person was her lover, she didn’t hope for him to lose money because of her matters. That was why she wanted to return me the money I spent for her. But even though she had decided to pay the money back, her heart was beating like a drum. Just how much money was it that I was taking such a long time to calculate!
“Have you calculated?” Looking at me not saying anything for such a long time, Wang Shu couldn’t help but ask.
“Em, it’s not that easy to calculate. There were 5 companies involved, after all.” I said.
“5? Humph, it really is them! I knew it!” Wang Shu said angrily.
“Yeah, that’s why I have to carefully calculate how much money it cost,” I put on appearances and shook my head, finally extending five fingers.
“500 million?” Wang Shu yelled, “So much!”
I shook my head and put my right hand with the five fingers next to the left hand that I made into a fist.
“5 Billion?!” Wang Shu was shocked and said, “How is it possible? You aren’t tricking me, right?”
“It’s really 5 Billion, I am not lying to you!” I shook my head and said innocently.
“Impossible! How can it be so much? You are lying again. Tell me, are you taking this opportunity to scam me?” Wang Shu pointed at me.
“Scam? Do you have so much money?” I asked.
“I don’t,” Wang Shu shook her head, “But how could it be so much? You wouldn’t have been taken advantage of as a fat sheep, right?”
“No. With 1 Billion for each, there are 5 Billion for 5 of them. I have counted it many times!” I laughed.
“1 Billion? Did you make some sort of mistake? How is it possible? You must be deceiving me!” Wang Shu said, “My family only owed 300 something million. Even if we add the interest, it wouldn’t be this much!”
“Hehe, it’s really this much, you will know when I give them to you!” I said to Wang Shu while blinking, smiling at her strangely.
“Give me? What would you give me?” Wang Shu asked, feeling strange.
“Money! Are you still not clear? I had been prepared to secretly give it to you, but who would have thought my plans would be seen through by you!” I said while pretending to smile bitterly.
“Give me money? Why would you give me money? Why can’t I understand what you are saying?” Wang Shu looked at me with a bewildered expression.
“Didn’t I say a moment ago, 5 Billion!” I said.
“5 Billion? Give me? Why give me?” Wang Shu still didn’t understand.
“Each of them gave me 1 Billion, so there are altogether 5 Billion. Since it was money given for the losses you suffered, I obviously have to give it to you!” I said with a smile.
“They gave you money? Wasn’t it us who owed them money?” Wang Shu looked at me, stupefied.
“They have to pay for their mistakes,” I said faintly.
