Ex-Husband Wants To Marry Again - Chap 17
Jiran is like an untamed wolf. If pushed too far, he will bite back.
But Yelinghan wants to conquer him, to see him bow down to him.
He tightened his grip, and spoke without reservation, his words cutting: “Jiran, don’t think that just because I like you, you can be impudent in front of me. If I want to, I can crush you with a snap of my fingers. In my eyes, you’re just a plaything. Know your place!”
Jiran still looked at the man in front of him coldly.
Yelinghan gritted his teeth, wishing he could strangle Jiran with one hand. But he couldn’t bring himself to do it.
He suddenly let go of Jiran, pushed him away, and walked out of the bedroom.
That day, Yelinghan did not come back.
If Jiran was heartbroken at the beginning of Yelinghan’s late nights out, he was now numb to it from the many times it’s happened.
After taking the contraceptive pill, Jiran fell asleep.
When he woke up the next morning, he found that he was imprisoned.
Yelinghan had sent out a large number of bodyguards to surround the entire villa, obviously not wanting him to step out even a step.
However, what Jiran didn’t expect was that several Omega servants came to deliver breakfast, and then someone came to his room to install surveillance cameras.
Every corner of the villa, even the bathroom, was fitted with surveillance cameras.
Yelinghan not only wanted to imprison him, but also to monitor him.
Looking up at the dark camera, Jiran couldn’t take it anymore and called Yelinghan: “You want to monitor me?”
“Don’t even think about leaving the villa before you give birth to my child.”
After uttering these words, Ye Linghan hung up the phone. Jiran was furious and slammed his phone hard on the ground, causing it to shatter into pieces and rendering it unusable. An hour later, a servant delivered a brand-new phone to Jiran and installed his SIM card. Jiran clenched his fists in anger and despair as he realized that he couldn’t leave the villa, go to school, or even go to the garden. He was trapped like a bird in a cage.
Ye Linghan didn’t show up for several days, hoping to break Jiran’s spirit and make him more obedient. However, Jiran was a resolute alpha who would rather break than bend. He never called Ye Linghan again.
One day, Jiran heard loud shouting outside his door. He went downstairs and saw two servants arguing with someone outside.
“Ye Shao instructed us not to allow outsiders to enter. Please leave!” said one of the servants.
“Get out of my way, you gatekeeper. My son lives here. He is the owner of this villa, and he is Ye Shao’s favorite. We are his parents. Why don’t you let us in?” argued the other person.
“Ranran, open the door and let us in! I am your mother! Your father and I have come to see you,” pleaded Li Huiqin.
Jiran frowned upon hearing the voices and was about to turn around and go upstairs, but Li Huiqin and Ji Zongguo had already seen him. They quickly got past the servants and rushed to Jiran’s side.
“Ranran!” Li Huiqin grabbed Jiran’s arm and reproached him, “Why are you ignoring your mother? Are you still angry with me? I was wrong last time. I promise I won’t gamble again.”
Li Huiqin was addicted to gambling and had lost twenty million yuan two months ago. Loan sharks came to the school and demanded that Jiran repay the debt. If Jiran hadn’t made some money designing and investing in the stock market, he wouldn’t have been able to pay it back.
Just when he had repaid the debt, Ji Zongguo forced him to buy a house for his younger brother, Ji Qing, which cost three million yuan. Jiran didn’t have that much money.
Ji Zongguo threatened to sever ties if money wasn’t paid.
In anger, Ji Ran never returned home again.
Starting from when he was 18 years old and attending college, Ji Ran worked odd jobs to earn money.
No matter how difficult or exhausting the work was, he did it all and used the money to support his family.
He paid for his younger brother’s tuition, daily expenses, and even the one million yuan car bought last year.
For so many years, Ji Ran had given all his money to his family, and now he really had no money left.
“Ji Ran, why are you being so cold to your mother and me? You have not even said hello.” Ji Zongguo was very angry, pointing his finger at Ji Ran and scolding, “You ungrateful thing! You haven’t come home in so many days. Your mother and I raised you for nothing. We raised a ingrate like you.”
“Dad, Mom, if you’re here for money, I really don’t have any left.” Ji Ran’s tone was very indifferent, but it was mostly exhaustion.
“You live in such a nice house and say you have no money?” Ji Zongguo didn’t believe it, raising his eyebrows and saying, “If you’re broke, Ye Shi must have money. Aren’t you dating him? Go ask him for money. The Ye family is so rich, if you ask for a few million, he’ll definitely give it to you.”
“I’m not going to ask Ye Linghan for money.” Ji Ran’s tone was very firm. He wouldn’t ask Ye Linghan for anything.
“Your younger brother is getting married soon! He can’t just live in any house! That apartment is only three million, which is very cheap. You can definitely come up with that much money.” Li Huiqin pulled Ji Ran’s arm and said, “Hurry up and give us the money. Don’t hide it from us. If you don’t give us the money, I’ll sue you in court.”
Ji Ran shook off her hand. “My brother getting married and buying a house is his own business and has nothing to do with me. If he wants money, he can earn it himself.”
“You…you you you…” Li Huiqin pointed at Ji Ran and angrily said, “How can your younger brother go out to work? Working is so hard. He should stay at home and enjoy life. It’s you who should earn money and give it to us. You have a duty and a responsibility. If you don’t give us money, I’ll sue you in court.”
Chapter 26: Is He Really My Biological Son?
In these past few years, Jiran has been truly exhausted.
