Chapter 174: Extorted

“That’s good. I don’t think your grandma will agree to Yanran’s matter easily. It’s better to let this go as soon as possible.”

Lan Tingyun’s expression was grim.

“Don’t worry Mom and Dad, it will be fine.”

Lan Anran comforted him. On the surface, she seemed to be fine, but the seeds of revenge were ignited in her heart. If she didn’t want this old thing to disturb them, she would have to think of a way to deal with them.

After leaving the Lan Family’s house, Zhao Xiumei felt a lingering fear. This jinx was simply out to kill!

“Damn it! What the hell is going on? Didn’t that Old Wang beat Lan Anran up? Why is she still alive and well? Did we give 10,000 yuan just for nothing?” Xu Yanshan said furiously.

“I don’t know, I’ll call and ask.”

Lan Tingyi took out his phone and called Old Fifth Wang.

“Hey! What happened, Brother Wang? Why isn’t that brat hurt at all? Didn’t you beat her up badly? She can’t have recovered so quickly, right?”

“Are you suspecting me? Believe it or not, I’ve done what you asked me to. Give me money!”

Old Wang refused to admit it. He had spent the last 10,000 yuan and didn’t have a single cent on hand.

“Brother Wang, didn’t I give you 10,000 yuan? You can’t do this, right?”

Lan Tingyi smiled awkwardly.

“That 10,000 is spent, give me some more.”

Old Fifth Wang spoke righteously.

Lan Tingyi was furious.

“Brother Wang, you probably don’t understand, but the 10,000 yuan has been paid in one go. It’s not in installments, it’s done.”

He explained patiently.

“I know, but I don’t have any more money now. You have to give it to me, or I’ll go to the police station and sue you for kidnapping. At most, we’ll just perish together!”

Old Wang’s blatant threat was hard for Lan Tingyi to accept.

“Brother Wang, that wasn’t what you said back then. How could you change your mind? Were you joking with me? Lan Anran is completely fine and yet, you’re asking me for money? I even suspect that you lied to me with her!”

Lan Tingyi forced a smile.

“You’re not giving it to me? Sure, let’s go to jail!”

Old Wang spoke firmly. He wasn’t afraid of going to jail anyway. At worst, they would just perish together.

“Wait! I’ll give it to you!”

Lan Tingyi gritted his teeth.

He hung up, looking furious.

“B*stard! How dare he deceive us?”

“What happened? Tingyi?”

Zhao Xiumei frowned and asked.

“We were tricked! That bastard lied to us with Lan Anran and he is here to blackmail me!”

Lan Ting was very angry.

“Hurry, hurry, hurry! Call the police!”

Zhao Xiumei was anxious. She didn’t expect Lan Anran to be so good at seducing people, to be able to subdue a gambler.

“No Mom! Lan Anran didn’t call the police because she wants Old Fifth Wang to blackmail us. She knows that Tingyi will go to jail if we call the police now. Kidnapping is a serious crime and Tingyi will be gone for at least ten years. Didn’t you say that this greedy vampire was reliable? How did it end up like this?” Xu Yanshan said in dissatisfaction.

“Damn it, how did it become like this?”

Lan Tingyi transferred 5,000 yuan to Old Fifth Wang as he spoke.

“Tingyi, if this continues, won’t we be supporting Old Wang?”

Zhao Xiumei’s heart ached at the thought of spending the money in vain.

“Mom, I really can’t go to jail again. I was already in jail for a few years. It really isn’t a place for humans.”

Lan Tingyi begged.

“Sigh! Tell me, how did you end up like this?”

Zhao Xiumei was exasperated.

“Mom, what should we do next?” Xu Yanshan asked anxiously.

“What should we do? What else can we do? Go home!”

Zhao Xiumei didn’t have a plan and could only go home to make other plans.

….

The Mo Family.

Mo Jinrong wanted to visit Old Mrs. Mo before leaving.

“Rascal! You still know how to come back? I thought you were dead!”

Old Mrs. Mo expressed her dissatisfaction.

“Grandma, I’m here, aren’t I?”

Mo Jinrong sat down with a smile, he hadn’t seen her in a long time.

“Hmph! You forgot about me, your grandma. Your job is much more important than me.”

Old Mrs. Mo was furious.

“I’m going on a business trip tomorrow, so I came to see you before I left. I know Uncle talked bad about me again, so I didn’t dare to come.”

Mo Jinrong seemed a little cheeky.

It had been a long time since Old Mrs. Mo saw Mo Jinrong like this and she was overjoyed.

“Rascal! I heard that you fired Xu Pei’s relative and called a shareholder’s meeting to fire many people?”

Old Mrs. Mo was very concerned about the company and even if she didn’t say anything, Xu Pei had been here several times.

“Grandma, you should know about my actions. I have a purpose. Did Aunt tell you why I did all of this?”

Mo Jinrong’s voice turned cold.

“Why?”

Old Mrs. Mo knew that her grandson had his reasons for doing things.

“It’s for Lan Anran’s sake. Xu Changhe publicly flirted with her at the company entrance. Uncle hasn’t been behaving well recently, shouldn’t I teach him a lesson?” Mo Jinrong asked.

“What? That b*stard! There’s such a thing? Xu Pei never said anything about that. Is Anran alright?” Old Mrs. Mo asked with concern.
