“You…” The middle-aged woman was mad and didn’t know what to say.
The old woman, who was the middle-aged woman’s mother and Zhang Peng’s mother-in-law, said, “I know you’re rich, but you’re an amoral businesswoman. If you used qualified bricks, my son-in-law wouldn’t have suffered this accident.”
Hearing that, everyone turned to stare at Gu Ning with an accusatory look.
“Right, all businessmen have no moral standards. No one is willing to buy the houses built by you!” said another old woman.
They said that because they weren’t involved in the business. If they were, they might be even more amoral. Besides, someone schemed against Shenghua Real Estate, which wasn’t what Gu Ning wanted to see.
“Let me be honest with you, we never do anything amoral. This is just a business competition. We were schemed against by someone. Now we found the criminals, and you’ll soon see the report. I came here to see you this time in order to make you feel better. I don’t want to quarrel with you. So please calm down. As for your worries, I promise I can make sure they’ll make a full recovery within a few days. But you won’t get any money by blackmailing…” said Gu Ning.
Before Gu Ning could finish, an old woman said disdainfully, “The doctor told us that they need at least several months. Don’t fool us by saying that they can make a full recovery within just a few days.”
“Right, if you can really help my husband make a full recovery within five days, I won’t ask you for a million yuan. You can pay us according to the rules,” said the middle-aged woman with a disdainful attitude. She didn’t think Gu Ning would be able to help Zhang Peng get better within a few days.
“Well.” Gu Ning sneered. “I won’t give you as much money as you want.”
“You…” The middle-aged woman was mad, but she knew it wasn’t very likely that Gu Ning would give as much money as she wanted.
“Don’t think I’m easy to bully just because I’m young. If anyone could easily take advantage of me, I wouldn’t have become so successful,” said Gu Ning seriously, putting great pressure on them.
Everyone quickly felt stressed.
It was true that Gu Ning couldn’t become so successful if she was easy to bully.
Afterwards, Gu Ning paid no more attention to them. She walked by them to the first patient bed which Zhang Peng was lying on.
Zhang Peng’s leg was injured, and his thigh was broken, which was quite serious. It would take two to three months before he could walk, and even if he could walk, it would be very difficult to return to his original condition.
“Will you believe me if I tell you that you can walk again in five days? If you’re willing to trust me, I can cure you first.” Gu Ning asked Zhang Peng.
“No, we don’t believe it!” Before Zhang Peng could say anything, his wife shouted first.
Gu Ning immediately gave her a cold glance, which made her stumble back. Then Gu Ning said, “Shut up. It has nothing to do with you.”
The middle-aged woman opened her mouth and wanted to say something. It was her husband. How could it have nothing to do with her?
However, before she said anything, she was frightened by Gu Ning’s look and suddenly didn’t know what to say.
The middle-aged woman’s mother was also affected and said nothing.
As family members, they indeed had the right to argue with Gu Ning, but the injured person should be the focus.
Gu Ning hated it the most when family members made the decision for the injured person. Family members could only do that when the person couldn’t make the decision on his or her own.
Especially when a pregnant woman was about to deliver. Her husband’s family might care more about the baby’s safety than her own safety.
Gu Ning couldn’t understand why a mother wasn’t as important as a baby.
Anyway, some people just couldn’t care less about other people’s lives.
However, they didn’t have the power to make those decisions. It should be the person who was in danger who made the decision.
“I trust you,” said Zhang Peng. Actually, he wasn’t fully convinced by Gu Ning.
He knew how seriously he was injured, and that it was impossible for him to walk again after a few days, but he didn’t think Gu Ning was bragging because it wouldn’t do her any good.
Therefore, whether he believed it or not, he wanted to give it a try.
If he could walk again within five days, he was unwilling to wait for months.
He didn’t care much about the compensation, he only wanted to get better as soon as possible. It was painful to lie in the hospital and it delayed his work even though Shenghua Real Estate would pay for his medical fee and salary while he was absent from work.
He wouldn’t blackmail Gu Ning, but she had to pay for his loss.
“Zhang Peng, are you crazy?” The middle-aged woman criticized him at once. Even though she didn’t believe Gu Ning could help Zhang Peng walk again within five days, she was worried that it might come true. In that case, they wouldn’t be able to get a million yuan.
“Shut your mouth! I can make the decision on my own.” Zhang Peng retorted. It was the first time that he had been so mad at his wife.
“Zhang Peng, how dare you shout at my daughter? Who do you think you are?” The aged woman got angry.
“I’m her husband. Why can’t I shout at her? How could she shout at me then? Let’s have a divorce if you don’t like me!” Zhang Peng said angrily. He mentioned a divorce twice, because he honestly wanted to divorce his wife. He felt suffocated and was heart-broken that his wife and mother-in-law cared more about money than him.
“You…” The middle-aged woman and the aged woman were both mad.
“Fine, since you want a divorce so much, I can satisfy you. Mom, let’s go. We don’t need to take care of him any longer!” said the middle-aged woman. Then she pulled her mother away, leaving Zhang Peng behind.
When they were gone, Zhang Peng relaxed.
He didn’t know whether it was right, but he was unwilling to tolerate it.
“Chairman Gu, I’m sorry. I showed you an embarrassing drama.” Zhang Peng apologized to Gu Ning at once.
