Chapter 1038 - Unhappy Conversation
Ever since she had overheard Xiang Yao calling Yu Yu, Shen Li had started to investigate the relationship between the two of them.
However, Yu Yu was very vigilant. On the surface, she did not have any financial dealings with Xiang Yao, so it was very difficult to investigate.
However, Shen Li was certain that there was something going on between them, so she had not given up and had secretly sent someone to follow them.
For a long time, there had been no progress on this matter, so much so that even Zhao Xuan had suspected that they were looking in the wrong direction.
After all, Xiang Yao and Yu Yu did not seem to be from the same world.
Although Xiang Yao’s economic situation in the past few months had been very strange, it did not seem like it could be determined that it was definitely related to Yu Yu.
However, Shen Li’s attitude had remained very firm, and her only instruction was that he should continue to follow them.
Now, the two of them had finally been photographed together.
[ President Shen, after Xiang Yao got into the car, Yu Yu did not drive away. ]
Following that, Zhao Xuan sent a short video. It only lasted for about twelve seconds, but it recorded the entire process of Zhao Xuan getting into the car.
[ Got it. Just continue to follow them. ]
[ Okay, President Shen. ]
Shen Li put away her phone and continued to read the documents in front of her.
“You came here just like that?!”
When Yu Yu saw Xiang Yao get into the car so casually without bothering to hide anything, she was so angry that her face turned red.
“What if someone sees us?!”
Xiang Yao sat in the passenger seat and leaned back casually.
Hearing Yu Yu’s words, he snorted and turned to look at her.
“Second Miss Yu, why are you so nervous? This building belongs to Yu Corporation. Isn’t it an easy matter for you to destroy the surveillance camera footage? Otherwise, why did you specially invite me here?”
Yu Yu’s thoughts were exposed. She was angry and annoyed at the same time.
Xiang Yao was getting increasingly arrogant and impudent!
That’s right, she had not left the Yu Media building and had chosen to meet in the parking lot on the second floor because this was her territory and everything was under her control.
She suppressed her emotions and tried her best to sound calm.
“What I’m doing is for both of our benefits.”
Xiang Yao scoffed at her words.
This woman looked young and beautiful on the outside, but in reality, she was extremely vicious. If she was capable of doing this even to her own cousin, what else was she capable of?
He had known from the start that this woman was not to be trifled with, so he had held himself back.
Otherwise, she would have already been caught red-handed a long time ago.
“There’s no need to speak any more nonsense. Second Miss Yu should know very well what I’m here for.”
Xiang Yao took his phone out and looked at the time. The tone of his voice was filled with impatience.
“My time is also very precious, especially since I was delayed by your company’s security guards for quite a while. Naturally, I don’t have much time left for Second Miss Yu. I still hope that Second Miss Yu will be more straightforward so that we can all relax. What do you say?”
Yu Yu’s expression was cold.
“I’ve already told you what I want to say. I can’t give you the amount that you want. I can only give you half of it now.”
The smile on Xiang Yao’s face disappeared as he stared at her.
“What did you say?”
Yu Yu’s patience was almost worn thin by him.
“I said half! Most of the money belongs to the company, how can I take it? Don’t tell me you don’t know what my current situation is like in the Yu family–”
“What does your situation in the Yu family have to do with me?”
Xiang Yao could not be bothered to listen to this and spoke to her coldly.
He had specially come to Haicheng to intercept her. Hadn’t he already gone through enough trouble?
Yu Yu gritted her teeth. “You!”
Xiang Yao sized her up before suddenly thinking of something. He gave an ambiguous laugh and said,”If Second Miss Yu really doesn’t have any money, it’s not like there’s no other way.”
Yu Yu’s brows furrowed, as a strong sense of uneasiness rising in her heart.
As expected, at the next moment, Xiang Yao spoke lightly.
“With Second Miss Yu’s looks, if she were to sell herself, she would definitely be able to get a good price. On account of our friendship, I will even give Second Miss Yu a discount. This money will be offset from the money that you want to give me. If second Miss Yu does well, I might be happy and give up the money–”
A loud slap sounded!
Yu Yu had used all of her strength to hit Xiang Yao. It was so hard that his entire head was turned away.
“Xiang Yao! In your dreams!”
Yu Yu’s face was mottled red and white. Due to her anger, even her body was trembling.
Her hand was numb from the slap, but she still felt that it was not enough!
“Who do you think you are?! How dare you speak to me like that!”
If it had been in the past, someone like Xiang Yao would not even have had the right to speak to her. Now that he had something on her, he was actually daring to humiliate her!
The sweet, metallic taste filled his mouth as Xiang Yao licked his lips and touched his own face. He slowly raised his eyes to look at Yu Yu, his gaze cold and vicious.
“Yu Yu, do you really think that you are still the second miss of the Yu Family?”
Yu Cheng had already ended up like this and she was the main culprit!
Once this matter was exposed, Old Master Yu would never let her off!
“Now, there are two options. Either you pay up or do as I said. Otherwise, Yu Yu, I guarantee that Old Master Yu and the others will receive a big gift. In any case, compared to you, I have nothing to lose. What do you think?”
The cold and mocking voice reverberated in the car, finally bringing Yu Yu to her senses.
Her face turned completely pale.
Yes, those who wore shoes were afraid of being barefoot.
She had too many concerns and was definitely not in a position to fight against Xiang Yao.
Moreover, she had worked so hard to get to where she was today. Just once… and she would be finished!
That would mean that all her years of hard work would have been in vain!
She had no choice. The cost of her sinking was too high.
She really could not afford to gamble.
After a long while, she finally gritted her teeth and said,”I understand. The money you want will be transferred to your account tomorrow.”
Xiang Yao narrowed his eyes. “Tomorrow?”
Yu Yu’s nails dug into her palm. “You have to at least give me some time to transfer the funds, right?!”
At this point, Xiang Yao was finally willing to let her go.
“Alright, tomorrow then. When the money is in my account, I will book a flight back to the Capital. Also–” Xiang Yao touched his face again and sneered. “Don’t forget about the medical fees.”
This meant that she had to pay more.
In reality, although Yu Yu’s slap was heavy, the injury to Xiang Yao’s mouth was actually very slight. There was a little blood seeping out from the corner of his mouth, but it was not a serious injury at all.
However, he obviously would not have suffered such a blow for nothing. If this ‘medical fee’ was not enough, Yu Yu did not even need to think to know that he would definitely not let this matter go!
She closed her eyes and took a deep breath.
After Shen Li finished flipping through the last page of the document, she received another photo from Zhao Xuan.
In the photo, Xiang Yao was seen alighting from the car. His expression was cold and the palm print on his face was faintly visible.
She closed the book.
It seemed that the negotiations between the two people had not gone well.
