Chapter 1738: If You Get Hurt, I will Make Them Pay for It
The time spent with family was always short. Ji Ziming and Pei Ge brought the three children to stay in Zhang Manhua’s house for three days before they drove back to the Ji family’s house. Mother Ji was sitting in the living room and discussing something with the beautician who arrived earlier than Ji Ziming and Pei Ge.
“Mom, we’re back.”
Ji Ziming held Pei Ge’s hand and brought the three children to the living room. When he saw Mother Ji listening to the beautician’s speech like a student, his lips curled into a smile.
“You’re back. Where’s that old thing?”
Mother Ji raised her head and asked when she did not see Qu Xiujie behind them.
“Uncle isn’t coming back today, so he’s staying at my mom’s place.”
Pei Ge explained.
“If that’s the case, then it’s good that he’s not back. The house can be quieter.”
Mother Ji nodded. When Qu Xiujie was not in the Ji family these few days, the house was indeed a little quiet and no one came to bicker with her. She even suspected that Qu Xiujie would come back to the Ji family to quarrel with her.
However, from the looks of it, it was impossible for that to happen now. Only when one experienced it herself would one know that habits were the same as one’s own interests. Once they were far away from her, it was actually terrifyingly lonely.
“Mom, Dad said that he’ll be back in two days.”
Ji Ziming carried Pei Ge’s bag into the house and said softly to Mother Ji, who was sitting on the sofa.
“Your dad is coming back?”
She was a little unsure and did not hear that he was coming back. She only thought that he would be staying overseas for a while.
“Yes. On my way back today, Dad called me and said that he’s coming back.”
Mother Ji brought Pei Ge upstairs. The two sat on the sofa one after another as the beautician looked at Ji Ziming. Her eyes were timid, yet pink heart bubbles were popping out. When she saw Pei Ge beside Ji Ziming, she lowered her head and stopped looking at him.
The most important thing now was to do what she was doing and nothing else.
Mother Ji nodded and took the box of facial masks from the beautician while her thoughts drifted far away.
The beautician woke the dazed Mother Ji up and continued, “Madam, are you alright?”
“How am I not good? Quickly show me how to use this mask.”
Mother Ji replied guiltily, having her thoughts exposed by the beautician.
Not long after Ji Ziming and Pei Ge returned home, they received Old lady Qu’s call.
“CEO Ji, how have you been recently?”
Old lady Qu’s voice was low as though she was trying to mask her voice and gave Ji Ziming a call.
“Oh, it’s Old lady Qu. I’m fine. How is Old lady Qu recently?”
Ji Ziming stood in front of the floor-to-ceiling window and looked at the scene before him. He knew that this woman was much scarier than what she was currently displaying.
“I’m not well. CEO Ji, you must know that our Qu family is not well right now. Don’t tell me you don’t know this?”
Old lady Qu’s voice carried a hint of threat. When the electric current passed through Ji Ziming, Ji Ziming could not recall what this old lady wanted to do.
He already knew what she wanted to do when he was arranging this plan.
“CEO Ji, let me get straight to the point. I want to ask for your help to save the Qu family. The Qu family can’t just collapse like this. I also know that you must have secretly dealt with those old things, so they don’t dare to lend us money now. Am I right?”
Old lady Qu’s eyes were sharp and she had to put down a pride to find a way out for Ji Ziming. She swore in her heart that no matter if it was Ji Ziming or Old master Qu, it would not be long.
“Looks like Madam knows my methods.”
His voice turned cold.
“CEO Ji, we are all smart people. You caused the Qu family to become like this. What exactly do you want? Is it just to take revenge on me?”
Old lady Qu finally decided to fall out with Ji Ziming. She knew in her heart that Ji Ziming must have a lot of clues about her and evidence of her crime.
What Ji Ziming wanted to do now was to get Old lady Qu to beg him. As long as she begged him, she would be under his control.
Ji Ziming was rich and powerful, so he never lacked materialistic things.
Since that was the case, Ji Ziming only wanted Old lady Qu.
“Old lady Qu, you’re thinking too much. Why should I take revenge on you? We are in a cooperative relationship and not enemies. Moreover, Mr. Qu is living and eating for free in our Ji family. Don’t you understand my intentions?”
Ji Ziming pushed all the wrongdoings away from himself. What he wanted to do was not to pester Old lady Qu but to gather more evidence. His plan this time was to find out more about the wrongdoings in Old lady Qu’s world.
Ji Ziming wanted to know the outcome and not the process of controlling Old lady Qu.
“Then, should I pay a hefty sum to your Ji family for Xiujie?”
Old lady Qu could not understand what Ji Ziming was up to.
“No need. You can’t afford it.”
Ji Ziming hung up after saying this and turned to look at Pei Ge, who was using the computer on the sofa. “Ge Ge, Old lady Qu can’t hold it in anymore.”
“By doing this, you almost cut off all of the Qu family’s chances of survival. Of course, she won’t be able to sit still. She came to look for you because of what you want, right?”
Pei Ge did not raise her head, but from the moment Ji Ziming spoke on the phone till now, she had heard everything clearly. She also understood how important this man was to her. There was nothing more important than him.
“No, so what if she comes to me? I’m still not the help she wants.”
He shook his head and denied her opinion.
“Then what do you want?”
Even Pei Ge could not tell what this man wanted and what he was conflicted about. Was Old lady Qu’s surrender not the best ending?
“What I want is for those who hurt you to receive the punishment they deserve. Be it Old lady Qu’s imprisonment or the Qu family’s bankruptcy, they are not enough to make up for all the damage they have done to you over the years. If you get hurt, I’ll make them pay for it.”
