Chapter 253: Kris’s Father-In-Law Came Back
The moment Kris followed Lan Xia into her office, he received another slap from her. Kris felt his face was burning. He was slapped three times within a day, and he was really getting angry.
Lan Xia asked: “Kris, do you know why did I slap you?”
“No, I don’t.”
The moment he finished, he got another slap! And a handprint was left on his face.
“What about now?”
“Are you mad? I dare you to slap me again!” Kris’s anger boiled up.
“So, you still don’t know.” Lan Xia looked at Kris coldly and delivered another slap!
Kris’ eyes are now bloodshot, and he could no longer suppress his anger.
Kris threw himself at Lan Xia and pressed her on a sofa in the office. Then he raised his hand and was about to slap her, but he checked himself at the last moment.
“Hit me. Why don’t you hit me?”
“Forget about it.” Kris rolled off Lan Xia, sat on a sofa beside, and gasped with pain.
“She is really violent,” Kris thought.
Lan Xia sat up. She looked at Kris, and her eyes were sparkling.
“Why are you so naive? Wu Xiang was obviously tricking you. He wanted you to fight back because then you will be expelled. You think he would let go of you when you are out of the school?”
“Do I look like a coward?” Kris said angrily.
Lan Xia found Kris rather amusing, and she burst into laughter. “Stop being so angry. It was just a few slaps. Let me rub your face to ease your pain.”
“Just a few slaps? You do not hit other people’s faces, do you understand?” Kris stood up and shouted.
“Let me rub your face.” Lan Xia bit her lip and reached out her hand. But Kris flinched because he thought Lan Xia would hit him again.
“I’ll do it myself.” Kris sighed. He thought his life expectancy would surely be shortened if he lived with her, for she was just too violent.
“I want to ask you something. Did you put the thing there that night?” Lan Xia asked.
“No, I didn’t.”
“I didn’t. I didn’t put the pill there.” Kris said quickly.
“How do you know it was a pill? Did I tell you?” Lan Xia said cheerily.
“Damn. I let it slip.” Kris thought. Then he said: “Yes, I did. Then what?”
“Thank you.” Lan Xia said gently. Then she pressed her hand against Kris’s face and began rubbing gently. Her hand was covered with Genuine Energy, which could help to reduce the swelling. The burning sensation disappeared the moment her hand was on his face.
It was still the first time he looked at Lan Xia so closely. Of course, that night doesn’t count. And he was once again stunned by her beauty. She was in her thirties, but her skin was so delicate and smooth as if she was still eighteen.
“Damn, what am I thinking?” Kris checked himself and asked: “Ms. Xia, will we be investigated for Qiang Xiang’s missing?”
“Now, you are afraid. Why were you so reckless earlier?” Lan Xia said.
Kris smiled. When that man was bullying Mary, how could he just stand by watching? But now they bore a grudge against each other, and Wu Xiang was already suspecting Kris. So if Kris had a chance, he should spare no effort to eradicate this guy.
“There is nothing Xiang Wu can do at school as long as you keep your mouth tight.”
“What if he goes to the principal.”
“The principal is insanely busy, and he would not meet him.” Lan Xia said, smilingly. “The Academy of Six Major Schools has been built for so many years, and the principal only came on the opening ceremony.
“What? Yuanqiao Zhang didn’t come to the school since then? Then how would I steal Taiji scripture?” Kris thought to himself.
“Which stage is our principal currently at?” Kris asked.
“Our principal is the vice leader of Wudang School. I think he was at the fulfilled period of the return-to-nature stage a few years ago. And now he should be at the back-to-self stage if everything went well for him.” Lan Xia answered while rubbing Kris’ face.
“What? The back-to-self stage? Yuanqiao is so powerful. I would be destroyed by someone at the return-to-nature stage, to say nothing about a man at the back-to-self stage. How could I possibly steal a scripture from someone at this stage?”
When Kris was thinking about the scripture he wanted to steal, Lan Xia withdrew her hand and said: “Now the swelling is reduced. You can go, and remember not to quarrel with Wu Xiang at school.”
Kris nodded and left the office. When he reached the gate of the school, he saw Mary was waiting for him there. Mary ran to Kris and embraced him the moment she saw him. She thought Kris had must been punished in the office.
“Kris, I’m sorry. I’m so useless.”
“You are so silly. It’s my duty to protect you.” Kris smiled and patted on her head.
Mary was so touched. She felt she was the luckiest girl in the world to be protected by Kris.
When they got back home, they found Changhe Su, Kris’s father-in-law, was at home, which took them by surprise.
Mary was very excited to see her father. She exclaimed: “Dad, why are you back?”
Changhe sat on the sofa with his legs crossed. Anger was written all over his face. He said: “Your mother is so pissed by this loser, and that’s why I’m here.”
Then he slapped the table violently. He shouted at Kris: “You and Mary should get divorced today!”
“Divorce?” Both Kris and Mary were shocked. They had no idea what was going on and why did he come back from America all of a sudden to make them divorce.
“Dad, what are you talking about? I will never get divorced from Kris. Never!” Mary objected.
When she finished, Jane Tang heaped insults on Kris. “The only thing you are capable of is eating and sleeping. What kind of contribution did you make to this family? Why would we want a loser like you in this family?”
Kris was confused. He knew his parents-in-law hated him, but they never insulted him in this way before.
Mary’s brow furrowed. She looked at her parents and asked: “Mom, Dad, what is going on?”
“I would never know you were kicked out of the family if your mom didn’t tell me,” Changhe said angrily.
“Dad, you can not blame Kris. It was me…”
“Quit it, Mary. I know you are a kind girl, but you should stop defending this loser.” Changhe said. Then he looked at Kris and said: “I never liked you, but I was okay with your relationship with Mary because you were rather nice to her. But now, Mary was kicked out of the family, and what did you do? Instead of helping her, you asked her to do that stupid live show! Is this how you take care of Mary and your mother-in-law?”
“Dad! I decided to do the show. It has nothing to do with Kris.” Mary was speechless. Her parents were being so unreasonable because she remembered it was her mom who asked her to do the show, and how could they blame Kris.
Jane was very disappointed with what Mary said. “Mary, how can you take the side of an outsider? Is this the way you repay your parents? Let me put it straight. You get divorced with Kris, or you are no longer my daughter, and I am no longer your mom.”
What she said hurt Mary so badly that Mary burst into tears. “Mom, Dad, please stop pushing me. I love Kris, and I’ll never leave him.”
Then Mary got out of the door and said to Kris: “Let’s leave here.”
Kris didn’t move. He said to his parents-in-law: “I know you despise me, but I am still going to prove to you that I am no worse than anyone else. I will give Mary a good future, and I will never get divorced from Mary.” Then he followed Mary and got out of the room.
Jane was insanely mad. She shouted at Changhe: “Changhe, look, this is your precious daughter!”
Changhe stared at the door, and his feelings were mixed. He sighed. “Were we over the line? Was that too much?”
At that moment, Kris held Mary in his arms and comforted her. “Stop being so sad.”
“Kris, I think we should move out.” Mary’s eyes were swollen.
“Move out? Where do you want to live?”
“I don’t care about the place as long as you are with me.” Mary dried her tears. “I still have hundreds of thousands of dollars. We can buy another house. A house belongs to us. What do you think?”
“But…” Kris wanted to tell Mary that he had another house at Tianmeng garden, but then he thought he would still meet his parents-in-law if they lived there because the place was just not big enough. Then Kris nodded and said: “Fine!”
“But Mary, why do you still have so much money?” Kris looked at Mary suspiciously because he remembered there was already no money left at home the last time his mother-in-law was hospitalized, and these debt collectors came to the house.
Mary sniffed and said: “I know my mother too well. She would absolutely waste money gambling if she knew the money. I saved the money for a rainy day.”
Mary was getting smarter.
Kris nodded. “Mary, now we can’t go back home, and I think we should find a hotel.”
Mary shook her head. “No, we need to save some money.” Then she grabbed her phone and called Mina Li.
Chapter 254: Hejing Garden
At ten o’clock in the evening, Mary Su came to Mina Li’s house with Kris Chen. Mina had a rise in income since she had become the general manager of Dashun Real Estate Company.
By rights, she should buy a villa to match her current status.
However, she didn’t. Instead, she bought a 60-square-foot duplex apartment in Golden Dragon Plaza.
In her words, she had no sense of security living in a big house alone.
This kind of duplex apartment was small but well-equipped. It felt unrestrained to live alone. The most important thing was that it felt secure.
Seriously, when Mina saw Kris behind Mary, her heart trembled.
“Mina, I’m sorry to bother you, but I might be staying with you for a few days,” Mary said embarrassedly, “just until I find a house.”
“It’s okay, Mary, you can live as long as you want,” Mina looked at Mary and said. Then she looked at Kris, and he grinned at her.
It seemed that he hadn’t told Mary of his identity yet.
It felt uneasy knowing the secret but was not able to tell.
Entering Mina’s house, Mary suddenly exclaimed, “Wow, Mina, your house is decorated so beautifully!”
As soon as Kris entered the house, he smelled a fragrance, which was exactly the same as that on Mina.
The main style of the apartment was girlish. It was pinkish, and the most exaggerated thing was that even the furniture was pink.
Kris felt that he had entered pink heaven.
He didn’t see that the general manager of Dashun Real Estate had such a girlish heart. Mina blushed, wondering if Kris would think that she was too childish. But she really liked pink.
At the same time, Mary said, “Mina, I have decided that I will decorate my new house like this!”
At twelve o’clock in the evening, Kris was lying on the sofa on the first floor, tossing and turning.
He could hear the whispering of the two women upstairs clearly. He thought that they had too many words. They had been talking for almost two hours.
Kris could only start counting sheep. When he counted at the ten-thousandth sheep, the voice upstairs finally disappeared.
Kris took a sigh in relief, adjusted himself to a comfortable posture, and was ready to sleep.
At this moment, the sound of footsteps came from the second floor. It was very light, gradually approaching along the stairs.
Who was it?
Was it Mary?
Thinking of this, Kris quickly closed his eyes and pretended to be sleeping.
Hearing the footsteps getting closer and closer, Kris suddenly opened his eyes and then pulled the figure over.
Then he turned around and pressed the figure under his body.
“Well…” Before she could make a sound, her mouth was blocked.
Then Kris’ tongue prized up her teeth and got into her mouth.
The girl snorted and struggled in a panic.
She felt a big fiery hand wandering freely on her body, and when she reached the peak, that hand suddenly froze.
Then the mobile phone screen lit up beside her face, they looked at each other.
Kris immediately stood up, trying to explain. But the person put her hand over his mouth, made a gesture to let him keep silence, and whispered, “Hush! Keep quiet! Mary just fell asleep.”
After that, the two people were caught in an embarrassing situation. FXck, how could it be, Mina?
When he climbed to the peak, he felt that her size was different, and he was stunned.
Mina blushed. Her face was so red that it looked like it was going to bleed.
She lowered her head, not daring to look at Kris.
Should she be kissed by him! It was her first kiss. Besides, she had never been so intimate with any man.
As for what happened between Bob Sun and her at Muse Bar back then was merely a mistake.
She was a pretty woman, and sometimes, in order to make a living, she had to deal with some men courteously but without sincerity.
It is too difficult for women to live in this society, especially for beautiful women. If she didn’t know how to disguise and take advantage, she would be eaten without leaving any skins and bones (everything of her will be taken by others).
She didn’t come from a good family like Mary’s, nor did she have such a wealthy and influential husband like Kris, so she could only learn to protect herself in order to survive.
The two people faced awkwardly until the light on the phone screen dimmed. Kris said, “Hug…sorry, I thought you were Mary.”
“It… it doesn’t matter. I know that Kris,” Mina stammered, “The weather is cold, I will come to give you a blanket.”
After returning to the room, Mina looked at Mary, who was sleeping next to her. She was envious of her. She really envied her for having a husband like Kris.
No one talked for the whole night.
The next day, Kris woke up.
He had a ridiculous dream last night.
He dreamed of Mary, Lan Xia, Quan Mu, and Mina. In the dream, each of them hugged a part of his body. Suddenly, they pulled, and he turned into pieces.
Then he woke up for being shocked.
He got up from the sofa and came to the bathroom to wash his face. As soon as he turned on the faucet, a woman screamed beside.
“Ah…you, why are you…”
Kris was shocked. He turned his head and saw Mina sitting on the toilet.
“Ah, I’m sorry. I didn’t know you were using the toilet…” Kris ran out of the bathroom, speaking.
Mina was ashamed and angry. He kissed her last night, and now he saw…
In fact, she had a very absurd dream last night. In the dream, she and Kris hugged each other. They were indescribably intimate.
When she woke up in the morning, she found that something was wrong. She hurriedly went downstairs to change her pants. How could she think that she was so anxious that she forgot to lock the door?
Then there was the thing that happened just now.
Kris sat on the sofa, gasping for air.
At this point, Mary came out of the room, hearing the voice. She stood on the second floor, looked down, and said, “Honey, was that Mina’s voice just now?”
“Haha…Yes…” Kris licked his dry lips and said.
Mary walked downstairs with her eyebrows frowned. She walked to the bathroom and knocked on the door, saying, “Mina, are you okay?”
“Yes… I’m alright, Mary. There was a big cockroach in the bathroom. I’ve killed it. Now it’s alright…”
“Oh, okay,” Mary didn’t doubt Mina’s words. She walked to Kris and gave him a sweet morning kiss, “Honey, did you sleep well last night?”
“Oh, yes!” Kris said quickly.
“Honey, why are you sweating? Do you feel hot?” Mary wiped his forehead.
“Oh, it might be the sultry weather. I’ll go downstairs for a walk and buy some breakfast,” saying this, he took the coat, opened the door, and went out.
At ten o’clock in the morning, Kris and Mary came to Hejing Garden.
It was a mid-to-high-end community.
The house here rated about ten thousand to fifteen thousand dollars per square meter.
The most important thing was that the residences were large. Each of them covered an area of one hundred to four hundred square meters.
They were many options. As soon as they entered the sales department of Hejing Garden, the sales manager walked to them.
When she saw Kris, she frowned instantly and slowed down. Finally, she turned around, mumbling, “Hell, a poor man again!”
Although she kept her voice low, Kris could still hear her.
He frowned but said nothing.
Looking around, there was no one to receive them in this huge sales hall.
Looking at the badges they wore, on which printed Guobang Real Estate Group, it could be told that this was a real estate developed by Guobang Liu’s Company.
Mary frowned. What’s the matter? Others were all received by someone. Why wasn’t there anyone to receive them?
They waited at the exhibition hall for a while, but there was still no one.
“Excuse me, can you tell me about the residences?”
“Sorry I’m busy right now. You may ask others.”
“Hey, I want to buy a residence…” Before Kris could finish, the sales manager walked away directly on her high heels.
What the hell? “Honey, let’s go to other real estates,” Mary said, biting his lip.
Kris wanted to call to Guobang Liu. After thinking for a while, he nodded and was about to leave with Mary.
“Mary Su?” At this moment, a woman’s voice came behind.
“Yuan Liu? Why are you here?”
Mary turned around to take a look and was stunned. The beautiful girl in front of them was Yuan Liu, Mary’s college classmate. They were roommates back then. But Yuan Liu got pregnant in college and was married before she graduated.
After getting married, Yuan Liu dropped out of school and went home to wait for delivery. They hadn’t contact with each other since then.
“Mary, it’s really you. We haven’t seen each other for three or four years. You are still so beautiful,” Yuan Liu said in amaze, holding Mary’s hand.
“You too…” Mary was also very happy seeing Yuan Liu.
Then, Yuan Liu looked at Kris and asked, “Mary, who is this?”
“This is Kris Chen, my husband,” saying this, Mary held Kris’s arm and smiled in happiness.
“Nice to meet you! My name is Yuan Liu. I’m Mary’s schoolfellow and roommate at college,” Mary stretched out her hands.
“Nice to meet you! I’m Kris Chen, Mary’s husband,” Kris shook hands with Yuan Liu.
Yuan Liu smiled, turned to Mary, and asked, “Mary, are you here to buy a house?”
Mary smiled, nodded her head, and said, “Can you show me around?”
“Okay.” Yuan Liu took Mary’s hand and came into the exhibition hall, saying, “I just came here two days ago. Don’t blame me if I didn’t introduce you well.”
“It’s okay,” Mary shook her head, “If I decided to buy one of them, you must give me a good discount.”
Next, Yuan Liu began to introduce Hejing Garden’s house carefully. Judging from her stumbling words, she was indeed a novice.
However, she introduced it seriously. She didn’t do it casually because she and Mary were acquaintances.
When Yuan Liu was introducing the real estate, several saleswomen nearby looked at her and laughed.
“This newcomer is really silly. Look at the clothes that man bought from stalls. Why is she introducing them so detailed!”
“Yes, isn’t that a waste of words?”
“Like they can afford it!”
Ha ha ha…
Those women couldn’t resist laughing.
