Chapter 158: Who hasn't fallen for a few scumbags before?
Translator: eunimon_ Editor: Caron_
Jiang Yan Ran had an indescribable sadness in her heart. "Oh, I'm evil for calling off the engagement? Who exactly declared that the engagement didn't exist and said that he wasn't related to me at all? I've only fulfilled your desires. What? Is that wrong?"
An icy glow flashed beneath Song Zi Hang's eyes, "Jiang Yan Ran, don't bring that up and make a thing of it now! I'm warning you, you better go back and get your father to retract what he said about calling off the engagement and work together with the Song family for the project. Of course, it's fine if you insist on calling off the engagement. As compensation, you just have to hand the project over to the Song family.
Then, I can act like this incident never happened. Otherwise, don't hope that I can forgive you in this lifetime! Don't test my patience. There has to be a limit to your stubbornness!"
Song Zi Hang's attitude seemed like he was certain that Jiang Yan Ran's actions aimed to get him to change his mind; he clearly thought that she was still deeply in love with him and that she was still the same girl who'd give in to him whenever he got angry.
Watching the guy she used to like for so many years saying all these ridiculous things, finally, the last glimmer of light in Jiang Yan Ran's eyes went out, "Song Zi Hang, you disgust me."
"You!" Song Zi Hang watched the retreating figure of the girl, his face filled with fury.
In the girls' dormitory:
After they went back, Ye Wanwan sensed that Jiang Yan Ran was a little upset, "Are you okay?"
Jiang Yan Ran smiled bitterly, "I just found it quite scary; what if I hadn't seen his true colours in time? What would've happened to me in the end?"
Thinking back to what happened to Jiang Yan Ran in the end, Ye Wanwan's heart froze as well.
Ye Wanwan understood very well how it felt to have your beliefs vanish into thin air. She sighed and said, "Cheer up, who hasn't fallen for a few scumbags when they were young?"
Jiang Yan Ran was amused and laughed out loud, "Speaking of which, we both seem to be in the same boat. Actually, I've always been quite curious. You were so in love with Gu Yue Ze before, what made you change your mind all of a sudden?"
Ye Wanwan's eyes turned slightly gloomy and replied, "I found out about some truths by accident."
In the next few days, as the bidding process was still incomplete and results hadn't been announced publicly, very few people knew about it and the public wasn't aware of the outcome.
As Song Zi Hang had previously boasted about it non-stop, every student in school assumed that the Song family got it. These people went up to Song Zi Hang to congratulate him and try to curry favor with him.
Shen Meng Qi was very sharp and realised that Song Zi Hang seemed to be distracted these few days. She wasn't sure whether it was because he was affected by Jiang Yan Ran's recent transformation or that he was overjoyed at securing the deal.
Anyhow, she couldn't let the prey in her hands escape again. Thus, she was more courteous towards Song Zi Hang and even took the initiative to ask him out that Saturday.
With each passing day that the project remained out of his hands, Song Zi Hang became uneasy. He still maintained the fantasy that Jiang Yan Ran would compromise eventually.
While he was shopping with Shen Meng Qi, he received a call from home once again.
Song Zi Hang ducked away from Shen Meng Qi and answered the call, "Hello, mom, how's everything?"
His mother's furious voice came through the receiver immediately, "Zi Hang, the Jiang family is too cruel this time! We can't think of a way out now! He could help us out with just a simple lift of his finger but he'd rather have the expensive equipment that our company bought rot than work with us; he's obviously pushing us to our death!"
"That old bastard! He's actually treating us like that?!" Song Zi Hang boiled in anger.
