Chapter 648: Clarification
Especially when he heard that Elder Wu was going to spend five billion bucks to buy the huge imperial jade, Ling Li felt his ears ringing and his body went weak.
Five billion! That was the entire net worth of the Ling Family!
If he did not sell that piece of jade but excavated it himself, the net worth of the Ling family would double!
With ten billion bucks worth of assets in Emperor District, the Ling family might not be ranked among the third-tier wealthy families. However, they were definitely a top-notch wealthy family in Jiang District.
Furthermore, when he heard the elderly man say that he was Chi Yang’s grandfather, Ling Li became even angrier.
If Ling Pinyuan did not intend to choose a gift for Chi Yang’s grandfather, she would not have quarreled with Zhong Nuannuan and Zhong Nuannuan would not have picked so many raw stones. This imperial jade would still be his.
The more Ling Li thought about it, the angrier he got, and the more his chest hurt.
When the pain reached a certain threshold, he could not even scream before falling to the ground.
“Move aside, let me do it.”
Although Zhong Nuannuan disliked Ling Pinyuan very much, this matter was not enough to make her want to destroy the Ling family and kill them. Therefore, when she saw that Ling Li had a sudden heart attack, she would not leave him in the lurch.
Despite wanting to help, Ling Pinyuan was not willing to accept Zhong Nuannuan’s help.
Ling Pinyuan looked at Zhong Nuannuan with hatred. “Get lost! It’s your fault that my grandpa is like this. We don’t need your crocodile tears!”
“From the moment 120 received your call and for the medical staff to bring along the necessary equipment for such an emergency and rush over from the nearest hospital, it will take at least 12 minutes. Plus, this is the time people get off work, and it’s the peak hour of the evening. With the traffic jam, it will take at least 20 minutes.
“One look and I can tell that your grandfather is suffering from coronary heart disease, and it’s coming fast and furious too. Now that he can no longer breathe, he’ll definitely enter a state of suspended animation within two minutes. Furthermore, after this coronary heart attack, his blood won’t be able to reach the heart normally, and the heart will die off completely within 15 minutes.
“So, you want to wait for 120. There are two outcomes. The first is your grandfather’s death. The second is that your grandfather will become a comatose vegetable who will depend on a respirator. Of course, you have a third choice, and that is for me to save him.
“Oh, one more thing. I’m not the one who caused this incident. You’re the cause of this. If you didn’t snatch my grandpa’s stone and try to humiliate me after stealing the stone, I wouldn’t have taken such a good quality jade from your family. This way, I wouldn’t have gotten your imperial jade and your grandfather wouldn’t have ended up like this.
“So, as you keep pointing out other people’s mistakes and think that someone has crossed your bottom line, please reflect on how you’ve treated them first! Thus, with so many witnesses present, even if your grandfather dies, it has nothing to do with me.”
Zhong Nuannuan analyzed the pros and cons very thoroughly for Ling Pinyuan. If Ling Pinyuan did not allow her to save Ling Li, there was nothing else she could do.
Ling Pinyuan nearly died of anger because of Zhong Nuannuan.
In all of her life, she had never been so angry before.
However, Ling Pinyuan’s grandfather was the pillar of support for the Ling family. Her father passed away when she was very young, and the second and third uncles in the family were all malicious people. Once her grandfather was gone, her second and third uncle would definitely use this as an excuse to banish her from the Ling family forever. There was no doubt about this.
Therefore, even though Ling Pinyuan was furious, she only thought about it for a while before giving up her stance.
“Since you said that you can save my grandfather, I’ll put my grandfather’s life in your hands. If anything happens to my grandfather…”
“Miss Ling, I don’t think you understand where you stand right now.”
