Time moved quickly and a month had passed.
The exchange program between Ziyuan and Liu Silan High School would take place soon. The bandages and the splint on Lan Yiyang’s arm could finally be removed; his legs had recovered greatly.
As for the Jin Family, after they had encountered trouble, they were actually lucky enough and found a scapegoat. The Jin Family was thus free and unfettered as usual, while the scapegoated family had vanished from K City.
That scapegoat had actually been the An Family.
Tax evasion and cutting corners in construction that resulted in building disrepair and several injuries were just a few of several charges. The An Family collapsed. Father An was sent to jail and it was rumored that he had committed suicide in prison. Mother An took An Youming and An Zuozuo and left K City.
Due that sudden incident, it seemed like it had all gone south for the An Family the moment they had left the hospital. By the time Mu Rulan heard the news, everything had passed the point of no return.
A burst of laughter came from the room across from Jin Biaohu’s.
“All I have to say is that the An Family is really too unlucky,” said Lan Yiyang when he heard Mu Rulan speaking of the incident.
The first rule of business was to carefully choose your business parter. Otherwise, if you found yourself in cahoots with a black-hearted business partner, it wasn’t that you wouldn’t earn anything – you could also end up in serious trouble.
Just as the An Family was used and disposed of as a scapegoat, it wasn’t rare to see similar sights in the business world.
Mu Rulan took a glance at him and said, “I heard that your family is currently cooperating with the Jin Family as well.”
Hearing this, Lan Yiyang frowned, his eyes filling with disdain: “It was Lan Binglin, that trash, who did that.”
Lan Binglin, huh… Translated by The Novelst
Mu Rulan remembered that young boy that hadn’t stood out. It didn’t look like he was very kind. He chose to cooperate with the Jin Family in their most critical moment and then the An Family had suddenly become the scapegoat.
“Are you not planning to take over the company?” Mu Rulan breezed over the topic of Lan Binglin and the An Family.
The young boy was very handsome, but if he grew up and became a little more mature and his gaze sharpened, she could already imagine what he would look like as a man, playing with the law in the palm of his hand to become the unbeaten myth within the industry.
It was just that she wasn’t sure exactly when it would happen. Mu Rulan didn’t know what had made Lan Yiyang become internationally renowned.
Ever since she had rebirthed, she had changed the fate of quite a few people. Duan Yao was supposed to have passed; Lan Yiyang she had never spoken with. Even the Jin and An Families had new issues this time around that hadn’t occurred in the past.
That was why Mu Rulan was quite open-minded about the future. The world was filled with so many variables.
She was looking forward to it.
Lan Yiyang furrowed his brows. “I have no interest in that stuff.”
Mu Rulan wasn’t really that surprised by his words, instead curiously asking, “So you want to hand over your grandfather’s hard work of building up the company to Lan Binglin?”
“He wishes!” Lan Yiyang gritted his teeth to respond.
Mu Rulan smiled and didn’t continue speaking. After a while, Jin Biaohu’s rude laughter drifted across the corridor once more.
Lan Yiyang frowned. It seemed that Jin Biaohu’s legs had recovered a little. He’d been running out of his room quite frequently.
“Don’t go outside too often,” he said. What if she bumped into Jin Biaohu, that bastard. Who knew what that pervert would do to Mu Rulan?
“Actually, I don’t have to continue staying here.”
“Then let’s leave.”
“Mn.” Mu Rulan smiled. It was time for her to be discharged. After all her preparation, the show was finally ready to start. If there was an audience waiting, they would have been waiting for this for a long time, hehe.
Night slowly fell, the dark sky enveloping the hospital in darkness.
The hospital was one of the most popular settings for haunted ghosts used in horror stories.
Jin Biaohu sat on his bed, his legs still encased in thick plaster. Before him was a computer on a table, a clip of a naked woman doing all sorts of sexy movements running. Jin Biaohu breathed heavily, filthy words pouring from his mouth. “You little fox, raise your leg a little higher! Ooh…”
Wind blew gently to flip up the curtains. Translated by The Novelst
Jin Biaohu didn’t even budge, his eyes still glued to his screen. He suddenly felt cold, so he pulled up his blanket a little.
Suddenly the curtain began to flutter vigorously. Jin Biaohu felt a chill run down his back, looking to the window to check if he’d forgotten to close the window.
Unexpectedly, what he saw instead was a figure floating above the curtain. The black shadow seemed to be a woman, her long hair fluttering and her body straight and stiff. The figure floated outside the window like she had been staring at him the entire time.
Jin Biaohu’s eyes widened in fright, flipping his laptop over and shouting, “Who’s there?!”
Just as he finished shouting, the black figure suddenly disappeared. Jin Biaohu blinked hard a few times, thinking he must have seen something wrong. Just as he felt relieved, the black figure suddenly appeared once more.
Jin Biaohu screamed in surprise, slapping the alarm atop his bed to call for help: “Someone! Someone, quickly! Anyone!”
