Transmigrated into the Cannon Fodder's Daughter - Chapter 63.1
Li Xiao’s message made Ren Shaotang so angry his stomach hurt.
She certainly didn’t behave like the eldest daughter of a wealthy family. Every time she opened her mouth, she talked about money, and this time she even asked for 100 million. How had she not sucked Li Nanjue dry by now? Why did he still give Li Xiao property? The only thing Li Xiao saw in this world was money.
If Li Xiao knew what Ren Shaotang was thinking, she would have stared at him blankly. It was impossible for someone to have too much money.
Although displeased with the situation, Ren Shaotang had no choice but to scrape up the funds to pay Li Xiao. In the past, the one billion yuan Li Xiao had requested had made him use up all of his spare money. Now, he had to quickly prepare 100 million yuan, so he was in a bit of a pinch.
Ren Shaotang’s grandfather feared that he was going to use his money to help Jiayin, and so, his grandfather had stopped supplying him with money. In addition, because he had been avoiding the spotlight recently, he hadn’t landed any major roles, and hence, had no source of money. This 100 million yuan was truly a challenge.
Ren Shaotang also couldn’t ask Li Qianfei for money. He would lose his pride as her elder. All he could do was find a few good friends to lend him some money (and not tell his grandfather), and quickly put some of his own property up for sale.
His friends weren’t short of money, but it was hard to scrape up 100 million yuan on such short notice.
Ren Shaotang suddenly thought of Su Lanqing. He guiltlessly considered asking her for money. After all, considering her family background, she definitely wouldn’t be short of money.
Ren Shaotang gave it some thought and eventually asked Su Lanqing out.
Su Lanqing smiled as if she weren’t angry about the incident that had occurred just the other day.
She really liked him.
Maybe one day, he’d marry her, and they’d become a respectable couple. “Lanqing, can you lend me 60 million?” he asked. “I’ll pay you back in a few days.”
Su Lanqing was flabbergasted for a moment and looked at Ren Shaotang in confusion. She had thought Ren Shaotang had invited her out to apologize, but instead, he was asking for a loan? He was asking to borrow money from a woman on a blind date?
For a moment, she had the urge to write about this incident on r/MyBlindDateIsExotic.
[T/N: The author doesn’t actually mention Reddit, but in this circumstance, I thought using Reddit instead would make more cultural sense for people in NA or EU. And for those who don’t know, r/[topic name] are subreddits on Reddit where you can talk about a certain topic.]
The corners of her lips pulled tautly. “Is this a new joke in China? I’ve only returned recently, so I don’t know too much about domestic trends.”
She kindly gave Ren Shaotang the benefit of the doubt.
Ren Shaotang stared at her. His gaze could easily give the impression that he was in love with you. His eyes were extremely beautiful and naturally contained a warm-hearted gaze. A girl could easily get lost in his eyes. But Su Lanqing was not that kind of girl. She was not to be easily coaxed.
“In return, I’m willing to go out with you,” Ren Shaotang added.
His arrogant attitude made Su Lanqing laugh. She would be wasting her time by dating this idiotic jerk.
Both her body and her face were attractive, and there was absolutely no shortage of people who were pursuing her. She didn’t need Ren Shaotang’s charity.
Su Lanqing managed her expression and said, “No need. You’re not my type. I’ve never dated a big star before, so I was a bit curious.”
Ren Shaotang froze. He thought Su Lanqing had liked him a lot and would thus be able to tolerate his rude behavior.
Su Lanqing smiled. “You want to borrow 60 million? Fine, but there’ll be a 1% interest every day.”
Ren Shaotang froze. One percent interest every day? That was insanity.
Su Lanqing said leisurely, “Anyways, if you’re only borrowing for a few days, that amount of interest is nothing to you. Of course, you can also choose to borrow from loan sharks.” Ren Shaotang’s cheekiness exasperated Su Lanqing. She remembered that a few of her sisters liked Ren Shaotang. In the future, she would have to make sure that none of her sisters liked this idiot with an empty brain.
Of course, it was impossible for Ren Shaotang to borrow money from loan sharks. If word got out, his reputation would be ruined. He couldn’t endure the possible humiliation, so he agreed to Su Lanqing’s condition.
Su Lanqing stood up and said. “Since it seems like you’re short of money, I’ll pay for our tea this afternoon.”
She went straight to settle the bill.
