My Wife is My Life! - Chapter 215
“What do you mean you disagree?!” Mother Ji looked at Ji Qingqing in disbelief. “Qingqing, you haven’t even married and yet you’re already offering your elbow to the other side?”
Ji Qingqing decided to be upfront. “Yes, I still haven’t married but I’ve already given you enough money in the past.”
“I gave birth to you and took care of you. Why can’t you give me some money to spend?”
“Yes, you did give birth to me and take care of me. There’s nothing wrong with giving you some money to spend. But when I was young, you and dad were busy earning money and spared absolutely no time nor energy to take care of us. I believe that the money I gave you previously has already paid off all the expenses you used to raise me. As for the gratitude for giving birth to me, let me tell you honestly, my current reputation isn’t that good. Last night when I brought Chengxi back to my apartment, it got filmed by reporters and ended up spreading wildly on the Internet. I don’t think there will be any endorsements for me so there isn’t much money for me to earn. My current net worth isn’t even worth ten million yuan.”
“No! Ten million yuan and not a single cent less! If you do not agree, I’ll… I’ll take this matter to the Internet!”
Ji Qingqing glanced at her.
She had absolutely no feelings towards Mother Ji. If it wasn’t because she was ‘Ji Qingqing’s mother,’ she wouldn’t even have wanted to come at all for this trip.
“That’s fine. Go ahead and do it. Either way my current reputation on the internet is already poor enough so I don’t care about what you’ll do. Besides, I believe I’ve already done enough to fulfill all my duties as a child to you. If you still want to cause trouble, then in the future you can take care of yourself on your own.” After saying this, she held Lu Lixing’s hand and stood up.
“Stop right there!” Seeing that she was about to leave, Mother Ji got anxious. “Qingqing, what did you mean by that?”
“You should know very well what it means. This time you’ve gone overboard. I have given you so much money and you’re not even satisfied at all!” Ji Qingqing raised her voice. “Today I’ve come back because I wanted to tell you about my marriage. I’m not here to ask for your opinion, let alone to ask how much dowry you want! To me: If you agree to it, then we’ll be happily hosting a wedding. But if you disagree, then my wedding will just be short of one attendee only! Besides, you obviously thought that he had no money and yet you still insisted on receiving ten million yuan from him. From the looks of it, you don’t even care about my happiness at all right? Since you want to put it that way, then I’m sorry, we can’t fork out that money, not even a single cent!”
That stubborn attitude of Ji Qingqing was something that Mother Ji had never seen before.
And based on what she heard, Ji Qingqing would rather sever ties than give that ten million yuan?
“Sit down first. Mother didn’t mean it that way.” Mother Ji looked at Lu Lixing. She didn’t know whether this man had money or not; with just his face alone how did he end up tricking her daughter to marry him? “Mother was only thinking of… having financial support during the later years. If you feel ten million yuan is too much then let’s continue to discuss further.”
Ji Qingqing looked at her. “How much do you think is sufficient?”
Mother Ji took a deep breath. “Since his circumstances aren’t good either, then I won’t ask for that ten million yuan. One million yuan; one million yuan and not a single cent less!”
Ten million yuan or one million yuan both didn’t have much difference towards Lu Lixing. His brow wouldn’t knit from it.
Ji Qingqing glanced briefly at Mother Ji and sat down.
Raising her head, Mother Ji gulped down two mouthfuls of water and eventually suppressed the anger in her heart.
After a while, she faced Lu Lixing with a serious expression and said, “Who is in your family; tell me about your family situation.”
“My parents passed away. I only have a grandfather and a younger brother.”
“Your parents passed away?” Mother Ji immediately replied, “Then if you do have children in the future, both of us definitely won’t be going over to take care of them. Her father’s health isn’t good and I’m too busy taking care of him.”
Lu Lixing’s face was expressionless. “Rest assured, we won’t trouble you.” He continued, “Previously you said it too, a married daughter is like water that has been spilled. I hope that after you accept this one million yuan. If there’s nothing important, do not go and pester Qingqing.”
