Chapter 96: Serves Her Right!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
&x201C;You would never win in a lawsuit against me. We have our own legal team in Dongheng Enterprise. It is already very kind of me to offer you some compensation.&x201D;
&x201C;Is that so?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she looked at Fu Yahui. &x201C;Did I forget to mention that I intend to engage the Lu family&x2019;s lawyers? You should know that the Lu family&x2019;s lawyers are usually unbeatable, being the top lawyers in the country. I am confident that with the amount of evidence that I have already gathered, they would be able to win against you in the lawsuit. I believe you know that embezzlement is a huge crime and you would be given a heavy sentence for it if you were to be found guilty. If you would like to try and see if you could win the lawsuit against me, then please be my guest.&x201D;
&x201C;Even if I am unable to get back everything that belongs to the Jiang family, I would be satisfied to see you suffer for the rest of your life!&x201D;
Fu Yahui opened her mouth but she could not say anything. She had met the Lu family lawyers before and she was not confident that she would be able to outwit them in a lawsuit. Furthermore, she had left too many evidences behind when she left in the past and all those evidences could easily convict her of the crime of embezzlement. If this matter went out to the public, it would also drastically affect the reputation of Dongheng Enterprise.
&x201C;Let us discuss this matter amicably. Yuning, don&x2019;t push me into a dead end,&x201D; Fu Yahui replied in a gentler tone.
She was still thinking of ways to get out of this situation.
At this time, Ku Jie who had been watching them silently from the side, suddenly joined in the conversation. He looked at the both of them before saying, &x201C;There is no point arguing like this because nothing good would come out of it. Yuning, I agree that your request is indeed too much. No matter what has happened in the past, we are still family after all. Yuning, you do not need to be so heartless. Let us discuss things amicably. Aunt, I think what Yuning is most angry about is the fact that Lu Jingzhi had to settle the debt for her after you left the Jiang family with eight hundred million yuan worth of debts. Therefore, I think it would be best if you gave Yuning that sum so that you can appease her. In that way, she can also repay the Lu family for their kindness. We can discuss everything else at a later time.&x201D;
&x201C;Yuning, can we do what your cousin has just suggested then? Is that alright with you?&x201D; Fu Yahui asked carefully as she looked at Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Do you really think that eight hundred million yuan will be enough to make up for all the grievances that I suffered and endured for the past few years? Huo Yuxi was given 3% of shares in Dongheng Enterprise, but what do I get in the end?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she stared at Fu Yahui with tears in her eyes.
&x201C;I want eight hundred million yuan and I also want you to give me 10% of Dongheng Enterprise&x2019;s shares. If you can fulfill these conditions as compensation, then I promise that I will not mention this matter again in the future. However, if you feel that I am not worth it, or if you do not want to agree to my conditions, then I have nothing else to say to you. I will not discuss this matter with you anymore. I do not care if I have to go down with you, since I should have been dead five years ago anyway,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said fearlessly. She knew that this was the only way that she could threaten Fu Yahui.
After all, those who were barefoot would never be afraid of those who wore shoes.
Fu Yahui would only feel the pressure when Jiang Yuning no longer had anything else to lose and had already given up completely.
&x201C;Aunt, what do you think? Can you agree to Yuning&x2019;s conditions?&x201D; Ku Jie deliberately asked Fu Yahui and used his eyes to frantically indicate that she should not continue to irritate Jiang Yuning or the consequences might be unimaginable.
&x201C;This is not a small amount and it is not that easy to transfer shares over to someone else. You will need to give me some time.&x201D; Fu Yahui made a concession for the time being, although everyone could hear the unwillingness in her tone.
&x201C;I want the eight hundred million yuan in my bank account by tomorrow. As for the shares transfer, I will give you three days. The bottom line is that I also want proof of you confessing to your crimes. If you do not agree to my conditions, it would not be me talking to you next time, but it would be my lawyers instead!&x201D; Jiang Yuning sneered. &x201C;I hope you understand that there will be repercussions if you try anything funny. If I do not receive the eight hundred million yuan from you by tomorrow morning, I will give all the evidence that I have on you to X Society!&x201D;
Ku Jie could not help but raised his brows as he looked at the two of them.
&x201C;You are clearly extorting me!&x201D; Fu Yahui yelled.
&x201C;Even if my father had disappeared mysteriously, grandpa and I should have legally been his successors! I am just taking back what you had taken away from me! You started this!&x201D;
Fu Yahui opened her mouth but she could not say anything because she did not dare to take the gamble now.
Huo Yuxi and her father, Huo Zhendong, were also trying to get their hands on Dongheng Enterprise right now. Therefore, she did not have anyone that she could trust.
&x201C;Looks like you have already decided to push me to a dead end.&x201D;
&x201C;Didn&x2019;t you push me to a dead end when you abandoned me and left the Jiang family with such a huge debt in the past? I guess we can finally call it even after this. Furthermore, it is not too much of me to ask you for 10% of Dongheng Enterprise&x2019;s shares. Think about it properly. Both Huo Yuxi and her father are already thinking of ways to kick you out of Dongheng Enterprise. The only reason I am leaving you with a way out is because I am your biological daughter. Do you really think that Huo Yuxi and her father would treat you the same way?&x201D;
Fu Yahui was suddenly quiet because she knew that what Jiang Yuning had just said was true.
She had already received news about Huo Zhendong&x2019;s movements in the United States and it seemed as though he was already eyeing the shares that was under her name.
&x201C;I will get someone to transfer the eight hundred million yuan into your bank account tomorrow, but I will not be able to do it in the morning. As for the shares that you asked for, I will get my lawyer to contact you within the next three days. Yuning, I hope that you will be able to honor your side of the bargain. After this, I hope that you will not bring up this matter ever again.&x201D;
&x201C;I have already told you that I want proof of you admitting to what you did. Brother, start the video recording!&x201D;
Although she did not want to, Fu Yahui had no choice but to allow Jiang Yuning to take a video recording of her. However, there was something that Jiang Yuning had said that kept Fu Yahui thinking.
Jiang Yuning could be satisfied and forgive Fu Yahui after receiving the eight hundred million yuan and 10% of shares from Dongheng Enterprise. However, what about Huo Yuxi and her father?
How much would they want from her instead?
She did not dare to overthink it because recently, both Huo Zhendong and Huo Yuxi had gotten greedier.
She was already extremely upset because Jiang Yuning had also decided to confront her at this time.
&x201C;I will be waiting for you to transfer the shares over to me.&x201D;
&x201C;You have already gotten what you came here for. Can you leave so I can have some time to myself?&x201D; Fu Yahui asked quietly as she leaned back against the sofa.
Jiang Yuning exchanged glances with Ku Jie before they started packing up their backpacks and left the mountain villa with the recording in their hands.
&x201C;You are even more demanding than I thought you would be. I did not expect you to demand for 10% of Dongheng Enterprise&x2019;s share, in addition to the eight hundred million yuan,&x201D; Ku Jie said as soon as they left the mountain villa. Ku Jie laughed before adding, &x201C;Who was the one who told me that she wanted to take things slowly in the first place?&x201D;
&x201C;Isn&x2019;t Fu Yahui afraid that you would really use the video against her?&x201D;
&x201C;Do you really think that she would be afraid? I believe that the only thing that she would be willing to give me is the eight hundred million yuan. Anything else above that amount would be too much for her,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly replied. &x201C;For someone as selfish as she is, the only thing that she cares about is her own interest. She will definitely think of a way to go back on her words in the next three days, but that does not matter to me anymore because I have already made up my mind. I intend to expose the truth and reveal everything that Fu Yahui had done in three days&x2019; time.&x201D;
&x201C;The Huo family who had only gotten this far by trampling on the Jiang family should also be taught a lesson. I want them to go back to the way they were before they took advantage of the Jiang family&x2019;s money.&x201D;
&x201C;Aunt must be regretting it by now,&x201D; Ku Jie said as he took the car keys from Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hand and asked her to move over to the passenger seat.
&x201C;She must regret giving birth to you!&x201D;
&x201C;Serves her right!&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she laughed.
As they were about to drive away, Jiang Yuning suddenly noticed a black car that was parked at the entrance of the mountain villa. When she looked at the few men who were sitting in the car, Jiang Yuning started speculating. Had Lu Jingzhi sent them here?
