Spending the Villain’s Money to Extend My Life - Chapter 356
Besides, it was but the outcome of a fortune telling. Who could say how reliable that was?
He looked with difficulty at Gu Shishi who was sitting on the couch with her legs crossed.
“It is such a simple favor that we are asking from you. All it will take is half a day of your life and you will be able to safe another one. You can get a divorce in China then get remarried again overseas. I will take care of all expenses that will be incurred.
“Miss Gu, is that necessary to be so cruel even toward a stranger?
“I can gift you a mansion. You can pick from any of my properties.
“Or, I can fight for 5% of the Gu’s shares for you from Uncle Gu.”
She was a daughter of the Gu’s. If she was unhappy with her share of the inheritance, naturally, she should be getting it from the Gu’s.
Covered in cold sweat, Huo Wencheng finally cleared his mind.
It wasn’t that he didn’t love Wushuang but Gu Shishi was a Gu and she was their responsibility.
Had the Gu family did a better job at taking care of the matters between their two daughters, they never would have run into this situation today.
If money was what Gu Shishi was after, she should get them from the Gu family!
“Or perhaps, Uncle Gu had something else in mind?”
Huo Wencheng turned to look at Mother Gu as he spoke.
Mother Gu was, after all, a pampered housewife and didn’t understand the dark competitions between men in the business world.
She only felt that the suggestion made a lot of sense when she heard Huo Wencheng’s suggestion. She was completely oblivious to the fact that he had switched the responsibility and damages entire with merely a few words.
She nodded quickly. “I’ll go talk to your dad as soon as I get home, Shishi. You, too, can pick a mansion from the Gu family’s property that you like. It’s all up to you.”
Huo Sishen was the only one looked at Huo Wencheng with sarcasm. He despised Huo Wencheng’s so called love and his uselessness.
Huo Wencheng almost lost his self-control under Huo Sishen’s contemptuous look.
Gu Shishi, on the other hand, had finally used up all the energy in her game nor did she want to purchase more diamonds for extra tools.
So she turned her attention back to the two sitting in front of her. She was taken aback a little when she heard what they were saying.
“You want to give me houses?”
Mother Gu was pleased. “As long as you agree to get a divorce, we will even give you two.”
The Gu’s were a big family and had owned a lot of properties.
Gu Shishi blinked her eyes and turned off the screen of her cellphone.
“But, don’t these properties belong to me to begin with?”
The smile froze on Mother Gu’s face.
“The inheritance will go to the children after their parents passed away, right?
“By law, Gu Wushuang is not an heir of the Gu family and I am the legal heir of the Gu family’s inheritance.”
Having said that, Gu Shishi blinked.
This was the first time it had occurred to her that she was actually quite wealthy.
That was a very novel thought.
She turned around and tugged on the sleeve of the man who was sitting properly next to her.
The boss must know this better than her.
“Am I right?
She was still very respectful to the boss in front of others.
She would reserve his nicknames like Huohuo when they were alone.
Huo Sishen’s ear turneded slightly red.
He stroked her on her head.
“Barring a will that says otherwise.”
Gu Shishi shrugged.
“So, my birth mother is threatening me to get a divorce with what is mine?
“And if I don’t get a divorce, she will be giving them all to Gu Wushuang? And I don’t even get a penny?”
Mother Gu was stunned speechless.
She had never thought about it that way.
It was not uncommon for siblings in families like theirs to fight over the inheritance in any sort of ways both in the open or behind the scenes.
It was a real and cruel issue.
Never mind that her real daughter had no emotion attachment with Gu Wushuang, even brothers who had grown up together could turn into enemies over inheritance!
The purpose of her visit today was not to start a fight between the two girls!
