Chapter 989 - The Bottomless Pit
According to Zhao Xuan, Xiang Yao had a pretty good family background, but that was only when compared to the average person. In reality, he was a part of the nouveau riche and could not be considered as being part of a truly wealthy family.
Previously, he had been a part of Yu Cheng’s entourage. After Yu Cheng’s accident, Xiang Yao had quickly cut off all contact with him.
This was actually normal. After all, Yu Cheng was now in trouble with whoever he had been involved with. It was not just Zhao Xuan who was in trouble. The friends who had been by Yu Cheng’s side in the past had almost all dispersed.
Everyone wished they could get as far away from Yu Cheng as possible.
However, was Xiang Yao still in contact with Yu Yu?
Obviously unlikely that he was maintaining contact with the Yu family because he was worried about Yu Cheng.
Moreover, the tone in which he spoke to Yu Yu had also been very subtle.
No matter what, Yu Yu was still the second miss of the Yu family. How could Xiang Yao dare to speak to her in such an impatient and even mocking tone?
What he had said before entering the elevator was also very interesting.
Second Miss Yu, aren’t you being a little too unkind?
Shen Li stared at the elevator door for a few seconds, deep in thought.
She took out her phone and called Zhao Xuan again.
Zhao Xuan was a little surprised. Could it be that there were other matters that he had not finished settling?
Shen Li asked,”Previously, you said that Xiang Yao had been acquainted with Yu Cheng. What was their relationship like?”
Although Zhao Xuan did not know why she had suddenly called to ask this question, he still answered immediately.
“Actually, it was just average. There were many people like him who was always around Yu Cheng. All of them tried to flatter and curry favor with Yu Cheng. Xiang Yao was just one of them. After all, they were not of the same social class. Yu Cheng would not really treat them as friends.”
Yu Cheng was arrogant and domineering. He looked down on everyone. To put it bluntly, people like Xiang Yao were no different from dogs in his eyes.
When he was happy, he might even give him a good look. If he was unhappy, he would humiliate him greatly.
“Got it. Oh right, please send me a copy of Xiang Yao and his family’s background later.”
Zhao Xuan did not understand why, but he did not ask any further questions.
“Yes, President Shen.”
Shen Li hung up the phone.
To Yu Cheng, people like Xiang Yao did not have much value. He merely enjoyed the flattery of these people.
If Yu Cheng did not care about such a person, the Yu family would naturally not take him seriously.
Then, the confidence that Xiang Yao had while in conversation with Yu Yu… was really interesting…
Shen Li collected her thoughts and turned around to leave.
Haicheng, Yu Media.
Yu Yu locked her office door and after making sure that no one would suddenly come in, she said coldly, “I don’t understand what you’re saying.”
On the other end of the phone, Xiang Yao laughed, but there was no smile on his face.
“The news has already come out. Haven’t you read it?”
Considering that they weren’t in their own homes and there were surveillance cameras in the elevator, Xiang Yao did not explain further,
“I crashed into someone this morning and the car I just picked up was scrapped just like that. Fortunately, the person is fine. I just need to compensate the person’s car.”
Yu Yu was so angry that the hand that she was using to hold her phone began to tremble slightly.
Xiang Yao’s meaning was very clear: he wanted money!
He needed her to pay for his scrapped new car as well as the money he needed to compensate the person!
She had just given him a sum of money to keep his mouth shut not long ago. It had only been a short while yet here he was already asking for more!
Moreover, each time he asked for more, the amount he asked for would increase!
She was rich, but she could not stop him from sucking her blood again and again!
“I’ve already given you all the money I have on hand now. Now that you’re looking for me, I won’t be able to take any money out either,” Yu Yu said coldly.
Her words were not entirely false.
Ever since Yu Cheng’s incident, she had suffered a few setbacks and her position in the Yu family was no longer the same as before.
It was impossible for her to obtain a large amount of cash from the Yu family without any reason.
She had originally earned quite a lot of personal assets over the past few years.
However, after YU had collapsed, the money had been used to compensate for the liquidated damages
Her own life was already hard enough. How could she withstand Xiang Yao trying to squeeze blood out her?
However, these were not things that Xiang Yao needed to consider.
“Stop joking around,” he scoffed.
The Yu family was one of Haicheng’s richest families. They were well-established and Yu Yu was one of the best in her generation. She had taken charge of Yu Media at such a young age.
Who would believe her if she said that she did not have money?
How much were these two cars worth? To the Yu family, they were just a drop in the bucket.
With a ding, the elevator door opened.
There were a few people waiting for the elevator outside.
Xiang Yao said, “I’m here. It’s settled then. I’m hanging up now.”
Yu Yu was anxious.
The call was ended.
Yu Yu felt as if something was stuck in her chest and her chest began to heave up and down.
She raised her hand as if he wanted to throw the phone away. However, when she thought about how the people outside might hear her, she endured it.
Who was Xiang Yao? Back then, he had just been a dog by Yu Cheng’s side! He did not even deserve to talk to her!
Now that he had something on her, he had started extorting her without any restraint!
The tone of his earlier had been fearless and without any fear. Even though he had caused such a big deal, his tone was still so relaxed.
He had already planned to take the money from her!
However, if she did not give it to him, he would definitely expose everything.
After all, compared to her, he had nothing to be afraid of.
She had been the mastermind. Even if the Yu family wanted to pursue this matter, she would be the first to bear the brunt of it!
If that happened, it was hard to say if she would be able to survive, let alone be able to get a share of the family assets.
Thinking of this, Yu Yu took a deep breath and forcefully ordered herself to calm down.
It was useless to be angry. It was useless to be angry.
Right now, Yu Cheng’s case had not been closed yet. Everyone in the Yu family was highly sensitive, especially Old Master Yu.
If he were to find out that Yu Cheng’s drug use was related to her…
Her fate would definitely be much worse than Yu Cheng’s!
Yu Yu walked over to the sofa and sat down. It was as if there was a taut string in her mind. She was extremely exhausted and her emotions were on the verge of exploding.
She sat there for a long time before she finally managed to calm down the anger and resentment in her heart.
Her gaze was cold as she stared at the phone in front of her.
Every time Xiang Yao called, she knew that nothing good would happen. Every time she heard her phone ring, her heart would skip a beat and she would feel a chill up her spine.
She could not keep going on like this…
After the first time, there would always be a second time and a third time, and so on.
Xiang Yao was a bottomless pit. No matter how much money she gave him, it would not be enough to shut him up.
She had to think of another way.
But before she could think of a way to deal with Xiang Yao, she had to lie to him.
At the very least, she had to give Xiang Yao the money that he had asked for.
However, this matter was also very troublesome.
After all, she still had to rely on the Yu family. At the very least, she had to improve her standing in the Yu family.
She adjusted her breathing and made a phone call.
