Ex-Husband Wants To Marry Again - Chap 18
The parents are like vampires, wanting to suck away all his value.
Continuous arguments and threats make him feel hopeless, as if he can never escape from such a ruthless family.
Listening to his mother’s roar and his father’s condemnation, Ji Ran is numb, standing there with no expression.
“As a son, you should be filial to your parents. As an older brother, you should take care of your younger brother. You’ve been following Ye Shao for so many years, can’t you make any money? You just don’t want to spend it on us.”
Li Huiqin poked Ji Ran’s forehead with her finger, gritted her teeth and said: “You dress in luxury, let your parents and brother suffer. Aren’t you afraid of karma?”
Ji Ran took a step back when he was poked, and after standing firm, he said indifferently, “I really don’t have any money.”
He has been with Ye Linghan for four years and has never spent a penny on him.
Ye Linghan has also never taken the initiative to give him any money.
Ji Ran felt that since it was equal love, it wasn’t about money.
Even though they went through a difficult time, he never asked Ye Linghan for a penny.
The money sent home was all earned from his own design work or temporary acting jobs.
He saved up the money little by little and invested in stocks and investments when he had extra cash.
He had nearly ten million assets in his hand, all of which were squandered by his parents.
Facing his parents’ irrational demands once again, Ji Ran only had one sentence, “I have no money.”
He is currently being held captive by Ye Linghan and cannot make money anymore.
Even if he could, he didn’t want to spend a penny more on his family.
“You…you unfilial child!”
Li Huiqin beat him and Ji Ran stood still, letting her vent.
Seeing that Ji Ran had made up his mind not to give them any more money, Li Huiqin panicked and turned to Ji Zongguo, crying, “Look at this ungrateful thing!”
“Ji Ran, if you don’t give me five million today, I’ll sever our father-son relationship.”
Ji Zongguo threatened Ji Ran, but unexpectedly, Ji Ran said, “Then let’s sever it!”
Ji Zongguo widened his eyes, looking incredulous, “What did you say?”
“That’s it, let’s sever ties!” Jiran said firmly.
“Until you both retire, I won’t give a single penny to our family. My money isn’t just blowing in with the wind, it’s my hard-earned money. I won’t let you continue to squander it. If you want to live a good life, if you want to buy a house, you’re on your own. I’m not obligated to pay for your greed.”
Jiran didn’t want to continue enabling his parents’ extravagance, and he didn’t want to be their ATM anymore.
As brothers, why did their parents favor the younger one?
Why couldn’t they consider him?
Jizongguo never expected that Jiran would really want to sever ties with them. Without Jiran, where would they get money from?
No, he couldn’t let this happen!
Jizongguo was so angry that he shook all over, and slapped Jiran’s face with his hand, “Your mother and I raised you, but now that you’re grown up and have wings, you want to kick us out with one foot. I tell you, there’s no way! If you don’t come up with 20 million, don’t think about severing ties. If you don’t give us the money, tomorrow your mother and I will go to the school to find the principal.”
“Yes!” Lihuiqin echoed, “We’re not just going to find the principal, we’re also going to find Yeshao. We’ll tell Yeshao what kind of person you are and let him dump you! Let’s see how arrogant you’ll be then!”
Looking at his parents’ ugly faces, Jiran began to doubt if he was really their biological son.
Chapter 27: His Heart is No Longer Here
In order to get rid of this cold and heartless family and these vampire-like parents, Jiran decided to give them 20 million and sever ties.
After signing the agreement, Jizongguo and Lihuiqin left grumbling.
Twenty million is not a small amount, Jiran didn’t have the money on hand, and his stocks and assets had long been sold. He couldn’t come up with the money at the moment.
In his bedroom, Jiran called all the classmates he could contact to borrow money.
“Jianming, do you have some extra money on hand? Can you lend me some?”
“Ji Shaoye, don’t joke with me. With Yeshao as your wealthy backer, why worry about not having money? Don’t make fun of me, brother!”
Click! The phone was hung up!
Ji Ran contacted another classmate.
“… How could Ye Shao break up with you without even giving you the breakup fee, leaving you in such a situation? Oh my! It’s really unfortunate! Do you need money? Let me introduce you to a rich man. The president of Huacheng Company likes Alpha very much. If you spend a night with him, money won’t be a problem.”
This time, Ji Ran hung up the phone on her own initiative.
After Ye Linghan and Gan Rui got engaged, the classmate who used to stick to him and flatter him suddenly disappeared.
Now, not only do they avoid him, but some also take pleasure in his misfortune and mock him when they see him.
How cold and cruel the world can be! Ji Ran lowered his head and smiled self-deprecatingly.
He had tried every possible way to gather the money, but he still couldn’t raise enough.
Ji Ran opened the drawer in his cabinet and took out a velvet box.
Inside the box was a watch that Ye Linghan had given him as a gift on his eighteenth birthday.
At that time, Ye Linghan had pursued him relentlessly and knew when his birthday was. He had specially customized this watch from overseas as a gift.
When he gave it to him, he looked deep into his eyes and said, “Ran Ran, we must spend every minute and every second together from now on.”
The watch was still there, but Ye Linghan’s heart was no longer with him.
It was said that the watch was worth fifty million yuan, and selling it would definitely solve his urgent financial problem.
Ji Ran was reluctant to sell it. It was the first gift Ye Linghan had given him, and it was the only gift he had ever received from him.
In the four years they were together, Ye Linghan had only given him this watch.
If he sold it, he would really have nothing left.
Ji Ran put the box away and dialed Ye Linghan’s phone number.
