Chapter 302: Courting Death!
Translator: Lonelytree Editor: Millman97
The man had ruined Xia Meng's life and now had the audacity to demand a larger sum of money for the divorce.
Xinghe was curious, how did he become so shameless?
This was an action unbefitting a human, much less a man!
"Then how much do you want?" Xinghe inquired slowly, trying to see how shameless the weasel before her could really get.
Ye Shen looked at her excitedly and pushed out an open palm.
"With two added zero."
Five hundred million, the pig wants five hundred million
"You might as well go rob a bank," Xinghe quipped.
Ye Shen blinked as if he didn't understand what Xinghe was saying. "Is that too much? That amount for the Xi family is nothing. Xia Meng, think about it, paying me for the divorce is not a bad deal for you as well. I hear Xi Mubai is now single, his original engagement has been broken off. After getting the divorce from me, you can start to pursue him in earnest so you see, I'm really helping you here."
Xinghe stared at him like he was some sort of a monster. She laughed coldly. "I have to say, you've truly enlightened on how despicable a man can get."
Just what kind of dark magic compelled Xia Meng to fall for this thing in the first place? I will never understand.
Ye Shen scooted closer to her and elaborated in a conspiratorial voice, "I'm doing this only for you. I know you are not happy being married to me so the earlier you get divorced from me, the earlier you can get involved with Xi Mubai. Of course, that wouldn't happen if you stay as my wife, so you see, you should be thanking me really."
Xinghe stared wide-eyed at him before saying, "Aren't you afraid that the first thing I'll do after I've seduced Mubai, as you called it, is to come after you?"
Ye Shen suddenly started laughing like he heard the best joke in the world. He even gripped his stomach in a cartoonish manner.
"Xia Meng, I didn't know you're such a joker hahaha" Ye Shen couldn't stop laughing. He was mocking Xia Meng's stupidity.
The b*tch really thinks Xi Mubai is interested in her? This is too much. The dumb b*tch really thinks Xi Mubai would want to have my sloppy seconds?
Of course, he wouldn't voice those thoughts out loud. After a series of back-breaking guffaws, he finally calmed down enough to say, "Don't worry, if you can get him to fall in love with you and even marry you, then sure, come at me with all you've got. I'll be waiting and that's a promise. I will not fault you for what happens in the future, I just want the profit now."
"How kind of you," Xinghe said with a smirk. Ye Shen was giving her the permission to face-slap him to hell and back. She was going to enjoy it, that's for sure.
Ye Shen was confused by what she meant. She didn't care to explain it to him, she asked coldly, "You'll sign the divorce papers if I give you five hundred million?"
"That's right, also let's not forget the thing you promised me. The thing your father left you," Ye Shen reminded her, salivating with greed, "After you give me everything, I promise you I will divorce you immediately and will not appear in your life anymore! But if you don't, Xia Meng, you will always be my property, and I will make you birth many children for me. I'm sure you don't want that, right? This is the only chance I'm giving you to get the divorce from me, so, Xia Meng, I'm sure a clever girl like yourself knows what to do."
Xinghe felt like retching.
"I will think about it." Xinghe frowned with disgust.
Ye Shen jumped up with excitement. "Okay, take your time to figure it out. Call me when you're done. I'll be waiting for you!"
Then, he left with hips swaying from sheer joy.
He was too caught up in his own bliss to realize a deadly gaze was staring at him from behind.
Mubai had walked out of one of the rooms and was staring at Ye Shen's back, branding him for death.
Xinghe took a look at him and asked, "What do you think of his proposal?"
"He's courting death!" Mubai concluded icily.
