Chapter 285: Make a divorce
Haoran Jiang and Wei Wan were on their knees, trembling. The two men’s eyes were filled with fear. Didn’t they say that this dude was a live-in son-in-law?
Why was the president of the Black Scale Security Group kneeling down to him?
What the hell was going on?
Now, it’s too late for regrets.
“Get up.” Kris Chen calmly looked at Lin Li.
“Thank you, Master!” Lin Li’s was happy, for Kris didn’t stop her from saying the word ‘Master’, so did that mean that he already considered her as his apprentice?
“Lin Li, I deserve to die. Please forgive me!”
Wow! Seventy to eighty guys all knelt on the ground to kowtow to Lin Li and beg for mercy.
Luckily, this place was quite remote, and there were fewer people. If it was in a busy place, it would definitely cause a large number of onlookers.
Lin Li frowned and asked, “Do you guys work for Hu Li?”
“Yes, we are his men.” The men leading the group said on his knees.
“Go back to receive your punishment.” Lin Li said in a cold voice.
Hearing this, the crowd kowtowed and thanked, “Thank you, Sister Lin.”
“All of you, get up.” Lin Li was in a good mood now, so she didn’t want to punish them too hard.
After they got up, Lin Li looked at Haoran and Wei Wan, who were still kneeling on the ground, “Master, what should we do with these two people?”
“Up to you.”
To be honest, the two were a piece of cake to Kris.
Ever since he became the Holy Dragon Cult’s head, Kris’s horizons had suddenly been broadened.
When one possessed a certain amount of wealth and power, he would naturally develop their own aura.
At this time, Kris was so. With power over the lives of hundreds of thousands of people and billions of dollars in wealth, a sense of superiority was born.
Even Lin Li was shocked.
“Take the two away. I don’t want to see them in Westriver City in the future!”
With cupped fists and a wave of his hand, several men immediately dragged Haoran and Wei Wan away.
Mary looked at him confusedly and bit her lip. She asked, “What the hell is going on?”
Looking at Mary, it’s time for Kris to tell her the truth.
Kris should confess to her.
Now Kris was a total stranger to Mary, not the husband she knew.
Kris went forward and tried to hold her hand, but she stepped back in panic.
Kris smiled wryly, “Mary, I know you have many questions right now. I’ll explain to you when we get back, okay?”
Mary frowned, looking at Kris confusedly. Then she looked at Lin Li, who was standing next to her, feeling uncomfortable, but she still nodded at her.
In the meantime, Mina walked over and took a look at Kris, knowing he had something important to deal with.
“Kris, Mary, and I are leaving first.”
Saying so, she took Mary and Jane Tang to leave.
When the three left, Kris relived.
“Why did you come here?”
“Are you upset, Master?” Lin Li saw that Kris’s face was sullen and asked somewhat nervously.
Kris shook his head, and he looked at Lin Li and asked, “Didn’t you send my picture to your company’s chatting group?”
Hearing Kris’s words, Lin Li blushed and said with some embarrassment, “I’m sorry, Master. I’m also afraid that my men will offend you.”
When Lin Li knew that Kris knew how to make immortality pills, she dreamed of being his disciple.
She had even persuaded Hu Li to live peacefully with Tianba Li. All this was done to please Kris. And Kris knew this.
Previously, he had made up his mind not to teach her how to make pills, prevent the skills from leaking out, and attract others’ attention.
It was the same now, but Kris could teach her how to make medicine instead.
Don’t forget, he was an alchemist with the Seven Grades of Rank Medal.
“I know all the things you’ve done during these days.” Kris thought about it and said, “Since your sincerity is commendable, I’ll make an exception and accept you as my disciple.”
“Thank you, Master. Thank you so much.”
Hearing Kris’s words, Lin Li was ecstatic, for this was she had been dreaming about. “Don’t be too excited yet. I still have something to tell you.” Kris said, “First, I won’t teach you how to make pills. Only medicine.”
What’s the difference between the two?
Lin Li looked at Kris in confusion.
Kris smiled and pulled out a medal from his bosom and handed it to Lin Li, “This is the Seven Grades of Rank Medal issued to me by the Ancient Medical Association. You should know what this medal means.”
Seven Grades of Rank?
Lin Li was shocked!
Did that mean that Kris was a senior alchemist?
This was remarkable, for there were few alchemists, not to mention senior alchemists.
When they were in the Wuliangjian School, there was a senior alchemist, whose status was second only to the president and vice president, distinguished. And now, she had actually been accepted by a senior alchemist, and she couldn’t contain her excitement at the thought of it.
“The second thing, don’t tell others any news about me.” Kris extended two fingers, “Can you do that?”
Lin Li repeatedly nodded, “Yes!”
“The third thing is that you are not allowed to tell that I can make the Obstacle-breaking Pill. Can you do it?” As Kris spoke, he unleashed his powerful momentum.
In an instant, the people around him were instantly pressed to the ground.
Even Lin Li, a practitioner of the innate-power stage, directly knelt down.
“I can do it, Master. Please stop unleashing your momentum.”
“Good, then from today, you are my disciple!” In the next second, Kris withdrew his momentum and smiled, “Remember, if you violate any of these rules, I will kill you. Believe me, I can now pinch you to death without any effort.”
Kris spoke in a low voice, but every word deeply imprinted on Lin Li.
She actually didn’t dare to think of resistance.
This man was too terrifying.
It’s only been a short time, but his aura became so terrifying. She had reached the innate-power stage, but she couldn’t resist his momentum. Was he a practitioner of the return-to-nature stage?
He was definitely a practitioner of the return-to-nature stage, who could unleash the momentum to press others.
At this moment, Lin Li was convinced. This man was too powerful.
“Yes, Master, I will definitely keep that in mind!” Lin Li said respectfully, with happiness shining in her eyes.
“Well, get up.” Kris picked up Lin Li and said, “After several days, I’ll call you and teach you how to make medicine.”
“OK, thank you, master!”
Hearing Kris says that he would teach her, Lin Li couldn’t say how excited she was.
“Alright, I’m leaving first.”
Before leaving, Kris looked at Lin Li and said, “By the way, Westriver City may not be peaceful in the next days. Restrain your men, and don’t make any trouble.”
“Yes!” Lin Li nodded and said. By the time Kris left, Lin Li was back to a tough woman.
“Everyone, from today, keep a low profile and don’t make any trouble to my Master. Do you hear me?”
Everyone answered in chorus.
Hejing Garden, Mary’s home
At this time, Mary and Mina were sitting on the sofa.
“Mina, why has Kris disappeared for a few days later for no reason and then come back?”
Mary said in annoyance, “I’m becoming more and more unable to understand him. It’s like I’ve never known him.”
“Do you think that I’m a loser as a wife?”
“Mary, don’t think too much.” Mina said, “Think about the past. When Kris was staying at home every day, you complained that he was a wimp who couldn’t achieve anything. The reason why he’s like this is all because of you.”
“Is that so?” Mary was happy when she heard this, but then she turned upset again, “But why, why he didn’t say anything to me. I feel like everyone knows, but only I don’t?”
Listening to Mary’s words, Mina didn’t know what to say. What a silly girl. Kris actually didn’t want to tell her anything, which was too much.
However, without Kris’s order, she didn’t dare to tell her anything.
At this time, Jane suddenly came out of the room in tears, “Mary, I wanna die.”
Saying so, she fell down on the sofa and began to wail.
“Mom, what’s happening again?” Mary walked over and squatted in front of her, asking, “Did dad say something?”
“That god damn man really wants to divorce me.” Jane sobbed and handed the note left by Changhe to Mary.
Mary took a look at it, which said, “Meet me at the entrance of the Civil Affairs Bureau at ten o’clock tomorrow morning.”
“I wanna die. I’ve worked so hard for this family, and in the end, what do I get? He no more needs me.” Jane grieved, “Mary, what I have done is all for the family.”
“This fucking asshole has lost money over and over again, and did I complain anything?” Jane recalled many things over these years and grief all, “When you were ten years old, he said he needed two million to invest, so I sold my jewelry to raise the money for him, but I the end, he lost all the money.”
“When you were twelve, he partnered with a friend to start a company and invested three million, but in the third month, his partner took all the money away.” Jane held Mary’s hand and said, “Do you still remember that year, you needed to pay the textbook fee, and I borrowed that money from my mother’s family.”
“When you were thirteen…”
Mary listened to Jane to tell her hard times all over the years, and also Changhe’s failure.
She and Mina simply didn’t know what to say except for comfort.
“Mom, don’t worry, I’ll call my dad.”
Saying so, Mary took out her phone and dialed Changhe’ s number.
The phone rang twice, and he answered it, “Hey, Mary, you tell that bitch to bring the associated certificate tomorrow, and I’ll wait for her at the Civil Affairs Bureau.”
After saying that, he hung up the phone.
Mary was turning on the speakerphone, so Jane could hear everything. She was desperate now.
“Fine, fine, OK. Let’s see how miserable you will be after leaving me.”
Chapter 286: The Past Two Years Had Been Tough
It was seven o’clock in the afternoon, and consumers already filled Muse Bar. People were chatting loudly, but the atmosphere was still not as lively as it would be at late at night. Most of the consumers were white-collar workers who just got off their work, and they sat in groups of two or three, drinking and chatting.
Changhe Su ordered one beer after another, and in front of him, a dozen empty bottles were lying around randomly.
“Are you drinking alone?” A woman sat beside him and asked. She was dressed in a low-cut dress and a pair of black stockings. And she was holding a glass of wine.
“Who are you?” Changhe looked at her with a dreamy expression. He found the woman absolutely stunning. Her lips are fleshy, her eyes are sparkling, and her long hair curls. She was wearing a sweet perfume.
“I’m a sad person.” She took a sip of her wine. “Buy me a drink if you don’t mind, and I want to know your story.”
Changhe spent many years abroad, and he could have got into some romantic relationships with some other women, but he didn’t allow himself to do so because he didn’t want to betray Jane and Mary. But this time, he would not try to resist the temptation because he would get divorced the day after tomorrow.
“Here, allow me to raise a toast for you.” Changhe raised his glass up and sat close to the woman, and his arm was around her delicate waist.
“Young woman does have a wonderful waist, unlike that horrifying dragon!” He thought to himself.
“Cheers!” She said, and she placed her head on Changhe’s shoulder naturally, and a smile spread across her face.
It was eight o’clock in the evening. It took Mina and Mary almost three hours to calm Jane down. Jane’s eyes were swollen from all the crying, and she also lost her voice. She was currently resting in a room.
When she left Jane’s room, Mary said to Mina: “Today has been a tough day for you. Maybe you can sleep here tonight.”
“I don’t think that is a good idea…”
“Why not? I really want a companion. We can talk with each other. Besides, it’s been a long time since you slept at my place.”
“Then what about Kris?”
“Just don’t mind him,” Mary said.
“Then……Fine……I’ll stay.” Mina agreed.
“Good. Let’s take a shower first.” Then she dragged Mina to a bedroom.
Kris got back home from Huanyu Group. He was away from Westriver City for several days, and many things in the company have remained undone. His earlier arrangements could not be put into practice without his signature. So Kris spent two to three hours dealing with the business and then hurried back home.
He got home, and found it was very quiet. “Mary! I’m back!” He shouted. But there was no response. “No one is home?” He thought. And he changed the shoes and walked to the bedroom.
He opened the door to the bedroom and found Mina was in there naked.
“Damn it!” Kris shut his eyes tight.
“Ah….” Mina screamed. She just took a shower and was getting changed when Kris walked in. She didn’t even have a piece of a towel on her, so Kris saw every part of her body clearly.
“I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I didn’t see anything!” Kris walked out while apologizing. Then he leaned against the door, his heart pounding violently. He thought that scene was quite exciting.
Inside the room, Mina’s face was burning. She bit her tongue and covered herself under a quilt. Then she had a strange feeling. She felt both humiliated and happy, and she was quite frightened and confused by her mixed feelings.
Mary walked in the room in a robe, and she looked at Mina in confusion. “Mina, did you just scream?”
“Yeah, I saw a cockroach. I am afraid of cockroaches.” Mina made up a lie.
“What? Cockroach?” Mary’s face set. “How is that possible? We just moved in for a few days.”
“Don’t worry. Maybe it wasn’t a cockroach.” Mina said. “Come to bed, Mary.”
“Wait a second. Let me see whether Kris is back.”
She walked out and found the light in the living room was on. She felt happy and walked over there, and found Kris was drinking water on a sofa.
“Kris, you are back.” Mary sat beside Kris. She was drying her hair with a towel.
“Mary, let me do it for you.” Kris took the towel and began wiping gently. For no particular reason, Kris felt a sudden pang of guilt, as if he was doing something bad behind his wife.
“Kris, you look worried. What’s on your mind?” Mary said.
“Mary, I have got something to confess,” Kris stopped wiping.
Mary didn’t say anything. She looked at Kris expectantly and confusedly.
“You always want to know where did I get all the money, don’t you? I can tell you now,” Kris kept wiping her hair.
Mary clenched her hands nervously. They had been married for almost three years, but Kris had transformed significantly within a few months, and she was unable to tell which one was the real Kris. She asked him several times, but he evaded all her questions. He was changing, but his love for her remained unchanged.
“You really want to tell me?” Mary was uncertain.
Kris nodded. “Mary, I need to tell you that my family is rather rich. I didn’t tell you before because I was driven out of my family because of some misunderstandings. My parents were also affected because of me.”
“Misunderstandings? You were driven out of your family?” Mary froze. She didn’t expect Kris to be a man from a big family, and she couldn’t imagine what the misunderstandings were, but she was reminded of her own experiences, as she was also driven out of her family.
Kris sighed. “I did some investments with my own money, but I was framed. Someone accused me of using the family’s money, and then, everyone went against me, and I was driven out. My parents were also embroiled. That two years had been rather tough for them as well.”
Kris was telling it honestly, but he didn’t tell her the episode about Sisi Mu, because he found that incident rather absurd. He decided to tell her the whole story later in the future.
Mary listened carefully, then she put her arms gently around his waist. She looked at Kris sorrowfully and said: “Kris, you have suffered so much for the past two years.”
Mary could strongly relate to Kris because they shared similar experiences.
Kris smiled. He stroked her nose gently and said: “You silly woman. It’s all in the past. Now I’m doing very fine.”
He concealed all the sadness, grievance, and anguish he experienced for the past two years with that simple sentence.
Mary remembered the day Kris got married into her family. He was penniless, and he needed the betrothal gifts to support his parents. He was so humble.
“Did you buy our parents at the villa in Tianmeng Garden?”
“Yes I did,” Kris nodded.
“Where did you get all the money?” Mary looked Kris curiously. Kris had already bought three villas, paid off the debt of twenty-five million dollars, and gave her mom ten million dollars that day. So in total, Kris had already spent three hundred million dollars.
Kris smiled and took out a bank card. “This is your card, and you can check how much money was in there when you have time.”
“Come on, just tell me,” Mary said.
“There is a billion dollars in there.”
Mary’s mind went blank. She stuttered: “A billion? You are telling me there are a billion dollars in this card?”
Kris held Mary tightly and said: “Mary, I promised you that I will never let you feel unhappy. Now we have money, and we don’t need to care about how others feel about us.”
Mary burst into tears when Kris finished. She expressed the sadness she had been accumulating over the past two years unreservedly. Finally, she can tell everyone that her husband is not a loser.
She punched Kris’s chest gently and said: “Why didn’t you tell me earlier? Do you know how many people mocked me over the past two years? Do you know how many people are telling me that I married a loser?”
Mary was crying bitterly, which broke Kris’ heart.
“I’m sorry. It’s my fault. I should have told you earlier. Trust me, I will never let anyone laugh at you again.”
Mary gradually recovered herself.
“When we have time, we can visit mom and dad. I need to apologize to them. I was wrong. I shouldn’t have done that in the hospital the last time. Will they hate me?” Mary was worried that her mother-in-law may dislike her.
“Don’t worry. My parents are very nice. You just need to explain everything to them.” Kris said.
Mary nodded. “I will try my best to a good wife and a good daughter-in-law.”
Kris kissed Mary on her face. He found Mary rather adorable.
“Stop it. Mina is here,” Mary said teasingly.
Then Kris actually stopped. He didn’t even know how to face Mina again.
“Thank you for telling me so much. I believe we will have a wonderful future.” Mina stood up and kissed Kris. “Tonight I’m sleeping with Mina. You will sleep alone.” Then she just skipped to her bedroom.
Kris laughed when she skipped away. “It seems like I have to sleep alone,” He said smilingly.
