“Ah!” Si Tuying shouted in surprise as she jumped aside. Jiang Fei only just discovered that he had pushed her onto the doorbell.
“Sh*t…” Jiang Fei mumbled to himself. He could not believe his luck.
“Young man! Come in!” Si Tuying’s father commanded angrily.
“Run away quickly…” Si Tuying said to Jiang Fei softly.
“Don’t worry. I’m here!” Jiang Fei held her hand and squeezed it gently. He wanted to tell her that it was alright.
Jiang Fei was so strong that even most Metahumans would be wary of him, let alone a group of human gangsters. Moreover, things were different in China as compared to North America. In China, even a foot-long fruit knife could be used as a weapon. Therefore, the standards of gangsters in China were very different from those in North America.
As Jiang Fei continued to grow stronger, his mindset gradually shifted as well. In the past, he might have listened to Si Tuying’s advice and ran away. However, in the past, he might not even have had the guts to pursue a lady.
Jiang Fei held Si Tuying’s hand as the two walked into her house.
“Great! Young man, you are certainly brave!” Seeing as how Jiang Fei dared to enter the house, Si Tuying’s father was also surprised.
“Dad, what’s the matter?”
“What’s going on? Who is causing trouble?”
Right then, a group of eight thugs came out from the back of the house. The leader was Si Tuying’s third brother, Si Tunan. He was the leader of the group hired by Zhang Yangxu to attack Jiang Fei.
“F*ck me! It’s you!” Si Tunan froze when he saw Jiang Fei.
“Do you know him?” Si Tuying’s father asked.
“This is what happened…” Si Tunan quickly explained how Zhang Yangxu had hired him and his encounter with Jiang Fei.
“Oh! That’s the guy!” Si Tunan’s father nodded. He had heard about the incident before. After all, his son had returned in a badly beaten state. He could not have possibly overlooked it. However, the Zhang family paid them a handsome sum of money to keep things at bay.
“This is my father, Si Tujianxin, and my third brother, Si Tunan.” Si Tuying whispered the introduction into Jiang Fei’s ears.
“Young fellow, which path are you on?” Si Tujianxin glanced at Jiang Fei and asked. After all, even the Zhang family had worked so hard to get on good terms with this young man. Clearly, this young man had an interesting background.
“Eh… I am not on the same path as you people…” Jiang Fei shrugged. He was a Level 4 Metahuman. How could he be compared to gangsters on the street? It was like a group of kindergarteners asking a professor which kindergarten he went to.
“What does your family do?” Si Tujianxin asked.
“Tell us! What do they do?”
When Si Tujianxin spoke, the group of men behind him started making noise to intimidate Jiang Fei.
“Dad… don’t scare him!” Si Tuying exclaimed in a displeased manner.
“My silly younger sister. Does he look like he’s scared?” Si Tunan rolled his eyes. Jiang Fei was still contemplating on how to answer the question.
“My parents are normal white-collar workers.” Jiang Fei laughed.
A few months ago, Jiang Fei still panicked when he was cornered by Big Brother Bear and the group of monkeys. However, he had even dared to challenge the Soaring Cloud Sect. There was no way he would be afraid of a group of normal humans.
Jiang Fei only agreed to talk to the group before him because they were Si Tuying’s family. He could have easily made a call to get Han Tianyu’s goons to sort these people out.
“Oh! Where do you live?” Si Tujianxin asked as if he was an investigator.
“Manda Square’s 100th floor.” Jiang Fei had no reason to lie about where he lived. As these people did not look like good people, Manda Square’s security would not even let them get on to the 20th floor, let alone his house.
“Holy sh*t! Your family must be rich!” Si Tunan was surprised. Not many could afford to live on the 100th floor of the Manda Square.
“Young man, do you really like my daughter?” Si Tujianxin stared at his son for a second before turning to Jiang Fei again.
“Yeah!” Jiang Fei nodded.
“What about you, girl? Do you like him?” Si Tujianxin turned to ask Si Tuying.
“Dad…” Si Tuying blushed.
“Alright then, since you both like each other, I won’t get in your way. However, young man, if you dare to bully my daughter, I will cut you into pieces!” Si Tujianxin threatened.
“Hehe, uncle, don’t worry. If I bully Little Ying, you can cut me up and make dumplings out of my flesh.” Jiang Fei laughed. He was not disturbed by the threat at all.
“Great young man! You’ve got a good catch, daughter!” Si Tujianxin had actually already accepted Jiang Fei when he walked in with Si Tuying’s hand in his.
After all, most people would have run off when they saw his angry face. The young fellow must truly like his daughter to have come into the house. Moreover, he did not show any sign of fear in front of the group of gangsters. This made Si Tujianxin feel a hint of admiration toward Jiang Fei.
After asking about Jiang Fei’s family background, he got to know that his family did pretty well. Moreover, they were people who worked proper jobs. Si Tujianxin was very happy about that. Although he was always involved in fights and killings, he did not wish his daughter to be part of that.
Therefore, despite having known Jiang Fei for a very short while, he was greatly pleased by Jiang Fei’s many aspects.
“Brother-in-law, can you lend me some money since you are so rich?” Seeing as how his father had accepted Jiang Fei, Si Tunan blurted his thoughts out bluntly.
“Brother, what nonsense are you talking about?” Si Tuying was so embarrassed that she went over to kick her brother.
“Stop it. I’m not doing too well these days…” Si Tunan loved gambling above everything else and therefore, owed a lot of money to others. If not for Si Tujianxin’s strictness, Si Tunan might have even gambled away what little that remained in their household.
He had accepted Zhang Yangxu’s offer previously because he had lost all his money and was in heaps of debt. Now that he found out Jiang Fei lived on the 100th floor of the Manda Square, he immediately treated Jiang Fei like a cash cow.
“Alright. Give me your account number. I’ll transfer some money over.” Jiang Fei shrugged nonchalantly. He did not care about money at all.
“Great! Great! Great!” Although Si Tunan had only said it without being serious, Jiang Fei actually agreed to it. Therefore, he immediately gave Jiang Fei his account number.
“Hold on.” Jiang Fei took out his phone and started the transfer.
“Alright, have a look. Let me know if it’s not enough.” Jiang Fei laughed.
“Great! Great!” Si Tunan immediately took his phone out to check his account balance.
“Sh*t! Brother-in-law, you must have made a mistake!” Si Tunan nearly fell to the ground from the shock. He thought Jiang Fei would have only given him a few tens of thousands. However, it turned out that Jiang Fei gifted him with 100,000,000 dollars.
“I’m not mistaken. Just keep it. Let me know later if it isn’t enough.” Jiang Fei laughed. He finally understood the feeling of being wealthy, which Han Tianyu was so used to. It was fun to be able to spend money on other people like it did not even matter.
