SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(This Woman Is Too Capricious (9)
"Zhiyuan, I recently opened up a milk tea bar and it's under renovation. I'm a little strapped for cash, so…"
"Are you asking me to lend you money?" Ning Zhiyuan sneered.
"Yeah, I don't have any friends, and you used to treat me so well, so I was thinking… on account of our past relationship, and the fact that I had an abortion for you, can you lend me some money? I promise to pay you back. Ever since I left the hospital, I haven't been able to find a job. You know that Wu Xiaoxue basically blacklisted me from any of the hospitals, and I'm out of options…" He Man said, tearing up as she looked at Ning Zhiyuan with puppy eyes.
Ning Zhiyuan felt nothing for He Man; when they dated, he just used her to fulfill his horny desires.
However, no man could be indifferent when a woman was crying in front of him.
Therefore, although Ning Zhiyuan was disgusted, he still asked, "How much do you need?"
"Fifty thousand should be enough, I still have some savings left over." He Man's voice was soft as she looked at Ning Zhiyuan.
"I don't have that much and all my money is in my wife's account. I have a little over twenty thousand left in my WeChat account, I'll transfer all that to you."
"That's fine too."
Then, Ning Zhiyuan added He Man's WeChat and sent her 23,800 yuan.
After He Man confirmed the transaction, she smiled, "Thank you, Zhiyuan, I promise I will pay you back."
"You don't have to pay me back, take the money, but never come looking for me again." Then, Ning Zhiyuan turned on his heel and left.
He Man's expression slowly turned cold, "Ning Zhiyuan, Wu Xiaoxue, and Huo Mian, trust me, I will make all of your lives hell. Just wait for it."
Huo Mian prepared dinner after she got home, but Qin Chu hadn't come back yet.
She took out her phone, sat down on the couch, and began messaging Zhu Lingling.
Zhu Lingling sent Huo Mian a photo of her rich boyfriend, and asked Huo Mian what she thought.
Huo Mian sent, "You're too fierce, I don't have the courage to tell you what I think."
Zhu Lingling replied, "It's fine, tell me the truth, I won't get mad."
Huo Mian, "Okay, remember it was you that insisted on hearing my opinion. Your boyfriend… is not that good looking. Gao Ran is much more handsome."
Zhu Lingling, "Why are you comparing him to that idiot Gao Ran? I don't find him handsome at all. Plus, I feel safe, dating someone ugly, at least he won't sleep around. Handsome men aren't reliable, there's no sense of security with I'm with them."
Then, Zhu Lingling immediately added, "Of course, your husband, Mr. Qin, is an exception."
Huo Mian, "I don't agree with your point of view. I don't think ugly people have a smaller chance of cheating. For example, a rich man would always have women swarming all over him, so if he does decide to date someone, it means that he's serious about her. On the other hand, no one likes ugly people, so he immediately sleeps with whoever that dates him. He would only marry someone because he has no other choice. You understand what I'm saying?"
Zhu Lingling, "What kind of weird logic is that?"
Huo Mian, "Girl, that's not weird logic. Here's another example: if a person has a hundred yuan, he'll be able to afford cola, sprite, or water. Therefore, if he buys water, it means that he actually likes to drink water. However, if a person only has two yuan, he'll only be able to afford water, so can you really believe him when he says that he likes to drink water? If you give him a bottle of cola, he'll still gladly drink it. An ugly man doesn't cheat because he doesn't have the chance to. If he comes across that opportunity, he will keep cheating, just to prove his manhood. People like that will never stop cheating either. Therefore, as women, we really need to keep our eyes open. We shouldn't date ugly people thinking that they won't cheat, because that's not the case." (Translator Note: just before people get offended, Huo Mian didn't mean ugly people will cheat for sure, she's just saying that the logic that people less good-looking won't cheat isn't necessarily true. Whether someone will cheat doesn't necessarily depend on their looks, so it's not a valid judgment on the person just because of their looks.)
Zhu Lingling, "My gosh, Ms. Huo, I am greatly impressed by your weird logic. I think you've brainwashed me, I suddenly feel enlightened."
Huo Mian, "Think about it, isn't that the case?"
Zhu Lingling, "It is, but not everyone is like you, lucky enough to meet the best man in the world to look after you when you were young. People like Qin Chu rarely exist in this world; you're lucky, but that doesn't mean that others are just as lucky."
Huo Mian, "Gao Ran's not bad. He's good looking, has a good family background, and a cool job."
