Yun Zheng’s unannounced arrival made those at the dinner table rather awkward, especially Ge Junjian.
Yun Zheng was the elder brother of Qin Yirou’s ex-husband and he had popped in halfway during the gathering today that was held to celebrate Ge Junjian and Qin Yirou’s wedding in advance.
What the heck?
Nonetheless, the dinner guests were somewhat surprised at what Yun Zheng said. Ge Junjian knew about Qin Yirou’s past family background as he had heard from her before. However, Dong Weiguo and the others were clueless even though they could discern Yun Zheng and Qin Yirou’s relationship from the man’s conversation and what Yun Yi said.
Hence, Yun Zheng’s appearance left a bad impression on everyone present. Although his appearance had nothing to do with Qin Yirou, it had still put the woman in a bad light to the military men.
Since Dong Weiguo and the others were only paying attention to Yun Zheng’s action, what the latter said had completely gone past them—even the disclosure of Yun Jian setting up New Cruise. The military men did not even hear it clearly when they dismissed it directly.
“He went gambling again?” Yun Jian’s voice sounded when everyone was deep in their own thoughts.
The girl had already shifted her eyes to Yun Zheng. A gleam seemed to bounce off her deep piercing eyes that commanded everyone’s gaze on her.
“It’s the debt he owed from gambling before Lunar New Year. I didn’t expect that he dared go gambling again! To the largest casino in Zhe Province too, at that. The casino staff came knocking at our door now and he got taken away.”
“We don’t have any money to repay the debt. Those people said that they’ll kill him and the rest of us if we can’t gather the amount within three days! They also—also said they’d sell Yaya into brothels to make up for the debt! Xiao Jian, all I ask of you is to save Yaya please. She did nothing wrong!” Yun Zheng asked in a grimace.
As a matter of fact, Yun Zheng’s entire family was innocent.
The matter was simple. Yun Gang went gambling before Lunar New Year whilst owing debt, which the creditors were after right now. He was naturally unable to repay it, so he got captured.
There was a saying about children being obliged to pay for their parents’ debts. Now that Yun Gang’s ex-wife, Qin Yirou, and their two children, Yun Jian, and Yun Yi, had left the man, they had severed ties with him.
News about Yun Jian being New Cruise’s director was spread high and far as well. The creditors had probed around Yun Gang’s family background and knew better than to claim the debt from Yun Jian, the director of New Cruise.
That was because everyone in Xinjiang Town knew that Yun Jian had taken Qin Yirou to cut ties with Yun Gang and family. Under such circumstances, Yun Jian would not be paying for his debt even if those creditors asked for it from her since she no longer cared about Yun Gang’s life and death.
Regardless, these people were relentless as long as they had yet to claim the debt, so they shifted their focus to Yun Zheng.
Yun Zheng was an honest farmer who minded his own business usually. He had even stepped up to help Qin Yirou back when Yun Gang’s mistress came to beat her up. When Qin Yirou asked for a divorce after that, the man supported her as well.
Basically, Yun Zheng was a kind man of ethics.
He would not have come to Yun Jian for help but he had a daughter. Due to Yun Gang’s debt, the creditors were targeting her now. Those people threatened to kill their family and even sell his daughter, Yaya, off to brothels to make up for the debt if they failed to pay anything.
His Yaya had only gotten into junior high school! Moreover, Yun Zheng was innocently dragged into this.
It was because he was truly out of solutions today and tomorrow morning would be the deadline those creditors had given him that Yun Zheng came here.
The man did not ask Yun Jian for more. He was only pleading for her to save his daughter. That was all. Furthermore, the matter was caused by Yun Jian’s birth father.
