Chapter 989: The Big Fat Wedding (20)

Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations

Ai Bao bit her lip, feeling that she no longer knew the man in front of her.

There was a time when his affectionate songs had brought her warmth every single night. She had indulged and lost herself in his voice.

She didn’t fall in love with him, exactly. It was just that she got used to him caring for her. So one thing led to another, she said yes, and they became a couple.

But that was as far as they went.

After she was swindled out of her money, Ai Bao had thought up all sorts of excuses — he could be short on cash or he could simply have a bad memory. When she looked back on it now, she saw that she was only deceiving herself.

An Yibei came prepared. “I have the money ready. It’s right outside.”

Wu Hanxiao frowned. “You can make the payment via Alipay like just then.”

He then took out his phone in a matter-of-fact manner.

His manager was no longer trying to disguise his repulsion.

Seriously? He paid that 100,000 a minute ago and this guy was actually going to profit from this now? Not going into the loan shark business was such a waste of his talent.

The manager’s phone rang at that moment. He picked it up and his fingers began to tremble.

“Wu Hanxiao! F**k you!” the manager cursed, pointing at his nose. “What kind of mess have you gotten me into?!”

Wu Hanxiao yelled back in an even louder voice, “Hey! What’s that supposed to mean? Get lost if you don’t want the job!”

Vexed, the manager dragged him away. “See for yourself!”

Ai Bao watched in bafflement as the two left. “I thought we were only going to run the little scam. What else did you do?”

“Just a little farewell gift.” An Yibei’s smile looked relentless. He then took out his phone and dialed Sheng Yize’s number. “Thank you. I owe you one.”

“With pleasure. Anything for my sister-in-law-to-be,” Sheng Yize said teasingly. “How did that actor offend you, by the way? You’ve gone a long way to ruin his day.”

An Yibei said lightly, “It’s nothing. I’m just being helpful.”

After he hung up, Sheng Yize rubbed his chin, lost in thought.

Was he imagining things? But when he mentioned “sister-in-law,” An Yibei hadn’t shown any intention of denying it at all!

The manager dragged Wu Hanxiao all the way out of the parking lot until they reached the front entrance of SR Entertainment.

Several gigantic lorries were parked outside.

“Why did you bring me here?” Wu Hanxiao rolled his eyes.

The manager smacked him on the back of his head. “See for yourself! See what’s inside!”

Wu Hanxiao followed his manager’s gaze and saw that a container was open, revealing its contents — money.

As in, coins.

Ten-cent coins.

Wu Hanxiao’s mouth fell open.

Where could one even find a ten-cent coin nowadays? No one would even bother to pick up such a coin from the ground!

However, all the containers were filled with ten-cent coins!

“What’s going on?” Wu Hanxiao was flabbergasted.

“That’s the question I should be asking you! Of all the people out there, you just had to mess with that fiend!” the manager scolded in exasperation. “Reporters and paparazzi are on their way! The drivers have all left after parking the lorries here! There’s no way that the tow trucks can get here before the paparazzi!”

“So… so what?” Wu Hanxiao said stubbornly. However, he had an inkling that he might have walked into a cleverly designed trap.

“So what? Well, get ready for reports with titles like ‘The new actor is humiliated with coins after running into heavy debt,’ or ‘The pretty boy is a kept man paid only in ten-cent coins’! I can’t even begin to tell you how unspeakable the actual articles are going to be!” The manager could hear the blood pounding in his ears. “In short, Wu Hanxiao, you’re finished!”
