I bet you hate to see 'last chapter of the week' in the announcement section. Tell you what, it probably won't have to appear anymore. :P
At this moment, the three people who were still drooling at the sight of Lin Ruoxi ran out of patience.
"Elder Brother, why are you still talking to this pampered lady? She knows nothing at all. It's better for us to do her in now before fleeing. I can't wait anymore!" Wang Ze exclaimed with a wicked grin.
Wu Liangzhu looked at Lin Ruoxi who backed off to the corner. Smiling scornfully, he said, "Idiot, do you think she can run away? Go and do her if you guys want to, it's also fine if you want to do it together. I'll just stand aside and witness the expression of this beautiful CEO who's almost as rich as a country… Hahaha… Look at how tightly closed her thighs are. It's possible that she's still a virgin."
"We're in luck! I'll be more than willing to trade this day for ten years of my life!"
Seeing that the two men Meng Fan and Wang Ze were approaching her, Lin Ruoxi couldn't think about anything else. She looked at her surroundings to think of a way to escape. She was even considering jumping down from the window… However, being on the third floor, she'd become handicapped if she didn't die!
Becoming disabled is better than being contaminated by these filthy people!
At this moment, a voice resounded behind Wu Liangzhu…
"Hey, the lot of you. Scold her all you want, and piss off if you plan to flee abroad. Why are you having thoughts on my woman? Aren't you forcing me to stop acting asleep?"
Astonished, the four people who had their attention previously focused on Lin Ruoxi suddenly turned around upon hearing the voice.
Yang Chen, who was originally lying on the ground, slowly stood up. Any dizziness or abnormalities couldn't be found on his face, appearing as if he was completely fine. Currently, he was pouting helplessly.
"You… you… why do you…" Meng Fan stammered as he pointed his finger at Yang Chen.
"Why did I wake up so quickly, is that what you want to ask?" Yang Chen smiled in an indifferent manner. "It's mainly because the drugs you guys bought have already expired, so they're quite ineffective. Also, you guys are so bad at acting. No matter how I look at you, you are all nothing like managers, but gangsters instead. Your faces are so tanned they are similar to those working in the streets. How are you an accountant who sits in the office all day?"
"Seize him!" Wu Liangzhu nervously ordered the three to grasp Yang Chen.
Including Little Liu who was guarding the door, they all rushed over in an attempt to tackle Yang Chen.
However, these people naturally couldn't do anything to Yang Chen. Expectedly, each of them received a smack before falling onto the ground. Yang Chen then slowly walked towards Lin Ruoxi whose forehead exuded cold sweat. Gently holding her hands, he said, "You must've been horrified. It's fine now. I'm still here."
Lin Ruoxi finally regained awareness. Although she was curious as to how Yang Chen suddenly woke up, she could finally be relieved as she noticed the situation, as if she just took a walk past the gates of hell.
"I'm fine." Lin Ruoxi immediately took her hands out from Yang Chen's. Doubtfully, she looked at him and asked, "You didn't faint earlier, did you? It was intentional, wasn't it?"
Since Lin Ruoxi knew that Yang Chen had an unusual background and fighting ability, she wondered why he got so easily drugged earlier. When she thought about it, she came to the conclusion that she got tricked again.
Yang Chen scratched the back of his head awkwardly. "I just wanted to see what they were up to. Even I thought they were particularly pitiful. I merely wanted to get the money back from them and ask them to leave. However, I feel like it's more practical to put them in jail."
As Yang Chen spoke, Wu Liangzhu silently walked towards the door and wanted to escape.
However, Yang Chen naturally wouldn't let him succeed. Dashing over without being noticed by Wu Liangzhu, Yang Chen kicked his leg to flip him over before launching yet another kick. Although his kicks weren't too damaging, Wu Liangzhu still fainted away.
Lin Ruoxi wasn't as surprised as before when she witnessed this fellow's horrifying strength oncer again. Looking at the four fainted guys, she sighed and said, "Just leave them here. I'll call the police to handle them. Wu Yue and Lawyer Zhang will take care of the legislation."
After an hour, through calling the cops, the local officers arrested all of the four low-spirited people. They even contacted their superiors to investigate Wu Liangzhu's misappropriation of funds.
Wu Liangzhu wasn't a high-level criminal after all. His plan was revealed, which ended up being pretty laughable. He wanted to take the huge sum of money he collected and bring it into Myanmar from Yunnan Province. At a country like that which was controlled by the military, everything could be done with money. Furthermore, he wasn't a government official. The country wouldn't negotiate his repatriation.
Since Lin Ruoxi personally called the police, the people in charge of Yuping District got anxious. It should be mentioned that Yu Lei International had three to four other companies set up in that place other than Yuping Garment. The economic profit coming from Yu Lei was enormous. They wouldn't dare to irritate this goddess of wealth.
Around eight o'clock at night, Lin Ruoxi finally met up with the real managers of Yuping Garment. These people deplored Wu Liangzhu's act of threatening their safety should they leak his plan. They hoped that Lin Ruoxi could forgive them, and allow them to continue working in the company.
However, Lin Ruoxi didn't generously agree to their request. Without hesitation, she swapped up the core people in administration introduced a change in the management inside and out.
Yang Chen understood her intentions. After all, none of these people secretly reacted to the filthy act. They mustn't be solely threatened through violence. There must be some other reason. It was possible that they received a portion of the money. As a result, firing all of them was the right move.
After the problems were dealt with, it was almost ten o'clock at night. The remaining procedures including the rectification of the factory and distribution of wages weren't something that could be solved within a day.
When Lin Ruoxi, who was evidently exhausted, entered Yang Chen's car, he could easily tell that there was a dense layer of dark clouds surrounding her body.
"Yes…" Lin Ruoxi answered softly. After that, no sound could be heard anymore. She silently sat on the front passenger seat like a ice sculpture. She was so cold that she seemed like she wasn't breathing.
Since it was late at night, the traffic was smooth. There weren't many cars and people, allowing Yang Chen to drive incredibly fast.
However, unlike before, Lin Ruoxi didn't ask him to slow down, but quietly sat there absentmindedly.
Yang Chen looked at her and said, "Are you still thinking about what Wu Liangzhu said earlier?"
It wasn't known if Lin Ruoxi heard him properly. "Ah," she said. It sounded like a confirmation and a question at the same time.
"Do you know why I didn't get up and whack them immediatly when I clearly heard that he was scolding you?" Yang Chen asked.
"Didn't you feel sorry for him?" Lin Ruoxi asked.
Yang Chen smiled faintly as he didn't deny her question. As if he was talking to himself, he said, "Actually, from Wu Liangzhu's point of view, he certainly had many reasons to hate you. Our ethnic has had thousands of years of history in this world. Many things which we thought were our glorious tradition have been slowly discarded and abandoned. However, much of our ingrained nature is simply unforgettable, like our ancestor's honor and our roots.
"On many occasions, the people from the capitalist countries like America, would feel that our people have strands of humanity when they come here. This is because we have things we care for, for instance, our family members, our ancestral home and our hometown. All of these are usually overlooked in developed countries. Many people wouldn't own a single house in their entire lives, let alone Wu Liangzhu's factory which was built on top of three generations.
"These things are more valuable than money. So at that moment, I actually felt it wasn't something significant when you were scolded by him. Of course, it was merely weighted through my values."
Lin Ruoxi silently turned her around to look at Yang Chen. In the dimly lit car, the BMW's orange indicator lights shone upon the man's face which looked incredibly familiar to her. This average-looking face in fact moved her when he calmly narrated his views.
Lin Ruoxi couldn't help but to ask, "So what are you trying to say?"
"It's actually not something that can be considered mind boggling. You may just be feeling overly down, that you had forgotten that.
"I just felt that what you did indeed caused suffering to Wu Liangzhu's family. At the same time, countless families are deeply grateful for you.
"Have you thought about it? These laborers who came all the way here aren't very knowledgeable. They don't have many connections as well. In this strange city, even in this small suburb, they are the minority. This isn't their hometown. They don't have family members here, nor do they have a house here. Some of them don't even have legal identities.
"These people are only trying to get by, or even start a family. They need a job for those. The original factory owned by Wu family is certainly unable to employ thousands of employees at the same time. Those people only got a stable job because you acquired the factory and planned its development.
"You saw the situation outside the factory earlier. They brought their entire family there just for the six-month wages. The fact that they held porcelain bowls to eat by the road meant they completely gave up their dignity, in hopes of getting the capital for survival which they deserve.
"To them, the social security provided by the country isn't enough. Since they don't excel in management, their best choice is to follow a person who can grant them stable jobs and lead them to continue growing the company. You are the person who can do both of those. So, what you're doing is actually helping a lot of people. Although Wu family have indeed been mistreated, your act actually helped a lot more people."
Various complex emotions emerged in Lin Ruoxi's eyes. She seemed to have brightened up. She let out a faint smile, which was a rare occurrence, and asked, "Are you trying to cheer me up?"
Yang Chen shrugged his shoulders. "I'm merely voicing out my thoughts. All people have a good and a bad side. We can't only focus on one. Nothing is perfect, isn't it…"
As he spoke, Yang Chen immediately grasped the opportunity. With high expectations, he asked, "Babe Ruoxi, do you think what I said made any sense? I think so. For example, when I said I wanted to leave you earlier, something must've gone wrong with my brain. Just like acquiring the factory, everything has pros and cons and nothing is absolute. No one can do everything perfectly. Just treat the words I said as fart which has dispersed into the air. Let's reconcile, shall we?"
