Chapter 1017: The Other Party Is Related to the Illegal District’s Red Alliance
At this moment, Jiang Zongnan walked out and patted her shoulder. He said gently, “Xianrou, your grandpa wants you to go in.”
Annoyed, Jiang Xianrou kept her cell phone and went in.
It was only when she entered that Tang Wanru slowly picked up the teacup with floral tea and took a sip. She raised her willowy eyebrows and asked, “Father called Xianrou in because of Big Brother?”
Jiang Zongnan dragged the seat that Jiang Xianrou had just sat in over and took a seat. Hearing this, he took out a pack of cigarettes in frustration, took one out, and lit it between his fingers. He did not hide it from Tang Wanru and said simply, “Big Brother and his team provoked the forces in the illegal zone this time. The matter blew up quite badly, and even after Jiang Li went over, he could not resolve it. Dad and I found out about the other party’s background. The other party has some relations with the Red Alliance, and they have quite a bit of power in the illegal zone.”
Tang Wanru asked, “They’re even related to the Red Alliance?”
Illegal district and the Red Alliance. When these two terms were put together, it looked like a huge problem.
“Xianrou and Zhou Hengfeng have maintained a good relationship, so I want to ask Xianrou if Zhou Hengfeng can still contact the people from the Red Alliance. If he can contact the Red Alliance, things will be much easier to resolve.”
When Tang Wanru heard this, the corners of her lips twitched to hide her disdain. She said softly as if it had nothing to do with her, “If Dad didn’t get into such a mess with the Zhou family because of Qiao Nian and Zhou Wei, he wouldn’t have had to rely on a junior like Xianrou to get Zhou Hengfeng’s help now.”
When Jiang Zongnan heard her sarcastic words, he felt a little unhappy, but he had to admit that in some ways, Tang Wanru was right.
If it wasn’t for Zhou Wei’s incident, their family and the Zhou family would not have been in a terrible relationship.
It wouldn’t be this difficult to ask for a favor now.
It wasn’t that they were afraid of losing face. The main reason was that even if they spoke to Zhou Hengfeng and asked him for help, he might not be willing to sell his face and give them the Red Alliance’s contact details.
“I heard that Qiao Nian has caused quite a commotion on the Internet recently… She’s quite capable. With such a big incident happening at home, she still has the energy to garner attention outside.”
Jiang Zongnan finally couldn’t listen on anymore. He frowned and looked at her, interrupting her unhappily. “What are you talking about? Nian Nian doesn’t know about this. I haven’t told her about her father! Don’t say that again. If Dad hears about it, he’ll be sad again.”
Qiao Nian had only reunited with their family for less than a year.
It had only been a month since she officially recognized her ancestors and family.
Old Master doted on her and protected her wherever possible.
Tang Wanru’s eyes turned cold and she did not speak anymore. However, there was no trace of anxiousness or worry on her face. She lowered her head and drank her water, waiting for Jiang Xianrou to come out.
Her indifferent expression made her seem like an outsider who did not care about what happened at home.
In Jiang Weishang’s ward.
After hearing the ins and outs of the matter, Jiang Xianrou had the same attitude as Tang Wanru. She didn’t even consider it and rejected him outright. “Grandpa, it’s not that I don’t want to help, but you know what happened to Zhou Wei previously. Our family and Uncle Zhou are in a terrible relationship. Even if I look for him, Uncle Zhou might not be willing to help. Furthermore, this matter involves the illegal zone and the Red Alliance. He will definitely not help us.”
In reality, after the Zhou family fell due to Zhou Wei’s incident, Jiang Xianrou and Zhou Hengfeng’s relationship had been maintained pretty well.
If she asked, he might be willing to help.
