After Fu Zhi walked into the living room, she glanced at Mr. Zhou.
’10 million yuan and a mansion, so a total of 80 million yuan. Very well then.’
Fu Zhi then chimed in flatly, “I think you should stop whatever you’re doing right now and take your daughter and rob a bank. If you’re lucky enough, the government will pay for your meals for the rest of your life.”
“I’m talking to your mother, not to you! Just shut your d*mn mouth and move aside!” Mr. Zhou rolled his eyes at Fu Zhi. Then, he added, “It might be a huge amount of money for another family, but I think it shouldn’t be a problem for you at all, right? After all, you’re the Lu Family. You guys are rich, and 80 million yuan should be a piece of cake for you.”
Zhou Tingting then added, “We just want 80 million yuan. I’m already yours, so you should just give the money to my father!”
She knew Lu Yumo had given up already. He deeply believed that he was the one who had defiled her, so she figured that she did not have to pretend anymore.
“They are still young, so they can’t get a marriage certificate yet. Besides, it would affect their reputation too. As for the money, either you will give it to me on the spot, or we can sign an IOU. Otherwise, who knows whether you guys will go back on your word or not after I leave this house.”
Both of them kept talking, and everyone in the living room had a feeling that this family was selling their daughter.
When Lu Yumo heard that they wanted the money that his mother was going to give to Fu Zhi after she passed away, he had a hunch that he should announce that he was cutting ties with his family.
However, before he could say anything, Xu Wei covered his mouth with her hand.
“Alright, it’s windy here, so just keep your mouth shut. If you don’t, sand is going to get in your mouth.”
Lu Yumo was left speechless. He did not know that his mother had done this because she did not know if she could resist kicking her son out or not.
“I can’t and I won’t give you 80 million,” Xu Wei said after taking a deep breath. If they were not at a disadvantage, she would have released the dogs to chase them away already. “We don’t have that much money, and we’re not stupid either.”
Mr. Zhou’s face turned dark. “What do you mean by that? Everyone knows that it was your son who defiled my daughter. You should be grateful that I didn’t ask for compensation for emotional damages. I just want 10 million and a mansion from you, that’s it. How can you say no to that? Anyway, I’ll ask you again, do you want him to marry my daughter or not?”
Zhou Tingting quickly added, “Yumo, if you don’t want to marry me, I’ll kill myself! That way, you can marry the woman you love!”
After she finished talking, she rushed outside. Mr. Zhou hastily went forward to stop her and cried, “Oh my dear daughter! Why must the world be so harsh to you? Not only have you been defiled by a man, but they’ve also refused to compensate you. How can they be so cruel!”
Xu Wei felt her pain. She opened her mouth, wanting to say something, but no words could come out.
“I already said I will take full responsibility for it. 30,000 yuan. That’s all I have right now. Take it, or I’ll kill myself!”
Lu Yumo did not want to live anymore.
He had been sullied, and since there was no reason for him to continue living in this world, he reckoned that he should die right now while he still had some of his dignity left.
“Yumo…” Zhou Tingting mumbled. She was startled by his words.
“No, that’s not enough. How about this: You guys don’t have to give me the mansion or the money. However, I have only one daughter, so you have to give me 20,000 yuan a month for my living expenses.”
Mr. Zhou was a cunning gambler. He was asking for a small sum of money first, and after Lu Yumo married his daughter, he could ask for even more.
Xu Wei replied coldly, “My son doesn’t have to marry Zhou Tingting. He should marry you instead.”
“How can you say something like that? We will become a family after they get married. Therefore, giving me money is what they should do as my daughter and son-in-law,” Mr. Zhou said matter-of-factly.
In his eyes, the Lu Family was already his property.
Fu Zhi then interjected. “How much can your daughter give to my family then?”
