Chapter 258: Did Someone Ask Me Yet On How I Feel About My Wife Marrying Someone Else? (Part one)
Xu Cheng stood there in a daze, and he shouted at Lin Chuxue’s back, “But in the end, you still decided to stay, right?”
“She stayed because she wanted to spend more time before leaving you.” At this moment, Lin Lei came out from some corner and he faintly said, “My sis said that if she left back then, it wouldn’t be fair for your hard work, and that your efforts would all be in vain. So, she decided to stay, and also take the TV show’s opportunity to go to the military camp, wanting to spend more time with you. During those days at the military camp she would call me at night complaining about how tough the days were, waking up before sunrise and training every day, and not a day goes by without a heavy sweat, and that sometimes, even guys would cry. But she didn’t say she couldn’t take it anymore, she just said she felt that your life was too tough and that she misunderstood you for the three years of the cold war she had with you. It turned out that for those three years, you put yourself through hell to empower and change yourself. The more she thought about that, the more her heart ached for you, and the more she felt that her existence in your life was a sin. So in the end, she made the choice to leave, for your sake and for the family’s sake.”
Xu Cheng’s eyes were bloodshot. “Then what about her? Doing this for me and the family but marrying someone she doesn’t love?”
Lin Lei bitterly smiled. “At least that way everyone would be fine. In fact, this is also why I didn’t want you to bring back my sis to Britain. Mom and Dad already decided, they would rather let the company go under, as long as you take good care of my sis. Without the company, those people that want to propose to my sis wouldn’t be able to find a place to screw with us. But, out of filial piety, my sis obviously wouldn’t let Mom and Dad do that. She’s also in quite a pickle being stuck between all of this.”
Xu Cheng bitterly smiled as well. “In fact, ever since you little brat came to Huaxia, I noticed that your temper changed a lot and you were much more mature, and that’s when I guessed something must’ve happened back at home. She still doesn’t believe I can give her what she needs, right? Right, perhaps the old me had already made a deep impression in your minds, and that’s why she’s still skeptical, which I can understand. Not everyone’s powerful enough to take on those forces. I don’t blame her for doubting me, but since I’m already here, why not give me a chance?”
Lin Lei was very direct. “The company will need 3 billion euros of capital investment to survive, and right now, there are five companies in the country that are willing to provide that to the company, as well as the royal family which can provide policy protection to bring the company back to its feet. But all six of them all want the same thing – a marriage!”
Xu Cheng sneered. “Since when did my wife become this cheap? Wanting to marry Chuxue for just 3 billion, they can keep dreaming!”
Lin Lei: “Brother-in-Law, 3 billion for us right now, is indeed something we don’t have.”
Xu Cheng paused for a moment. That’s true, where was he going to find that 3 billion?
Xu Cheng always thought that he wouldn’t never be in a situation of being short on money in his life, and it seemed like it was true that he wouldn’t be short on money for normal living expenses. However, it was impossible for him to immediately take out 3 billion euros.
Unexpectedly, the question still came back to money.
Even if Xu Cheng were to sell that condo of his, that would only be 800 million yuan, equivalent to 100 million euros…
Lin Chuxue’s assets and that Imperial Entertainment company back in the country has a market value of about 2 billion, and that’s at most 300 million euros. Plus Xu Cheng’s total asset of about 400 million euros, it was indeed not enough to fill the hole of 3 billion euros.
Seeing Xu Cheng silent, Lin Lei patted him on the shoulder and said, “Let’s go inside.”
Dinner was already prepared.
Lin Lei pulled out the seat for Xu Cheng to sit beside Lin Chuxue. Lin Chuxue poured him a bowl of delicious soup and gently said to him, “Careful, it’s hot.”
Xu Cheng didn’t speak, nor did he intend to eat. He just sat there, thinking about god-knows-what.
Mommy Lin also put some dish into his bowl and said, “Don’t be upset, just eat first, health always comes first.”
