I’m 8 Million Poor
I’m 8 Million Poor Chapter 76

When Chu Yunhan was brought in by the butler, Jiang Baiwan and Ji Chen were startled by his unshaven appearance. Jiang Baiwan looked at Chu Yunhan, barely recognizing him. “……Chu Yunhan?”

“Jiang Baiwan.” Restraining his impulse, Chu Yunhan said coldly, “Tell me! Was it you who caused yesterday’s incident?!”

Jiang Baiwan only felt that a large pot was covering her body and she couldn’t shake it off. Her eyes widened in surprise. After a long time she laughed angrily. “Are you kidding me? Do you have a loose screw?”

Chu Yunhan’s eyes were almost red as he choked out. “After Lan’er arrived home last night, she hasn’t eaten anything and have been spacing out…… You…… If it wasn’t because of you, how could she be with Gu Dongcheng……? And Gu Dongcheng……”

Chu Yunhan couldn’t continue. He simply squatted on the ground and began to cry loudly, not caring about his appearance at all. Jiang Baiwan looked on dumbfounded. Her head hurt from Chu Yunhan’s crying. She couldn’t help but stop him and yelled, “Hold it!

Chu Yunhan was shouted at by Jiang Baiwan and trembled from shock, instantly stifling his cries. Jiang Baiwan looked down at him with folded arms and said with a sneer, “You’re really good. Where did you go to study? How is Shui Lan’er being with Gu Dongcheng my fault? Chu Yunhan, ask yourself, don’t you have an idea in your heart?”

Ji Chen originally wanted to help, but seeing Jiang Baiwan’s valiant and spirited appearance, he suddenly changed his mind and just stood behind her silently.

Jiang Baiwan didn’t notice Ji Chen’s actions as she was about to be infuriated to death by Chu Yunhan, this guy who forcibly touched porcelain. “Besides, you came to the Ji family’s house early this morning because you knew I am staying here with Ji Chen. You have time to inquire about this news, but why didn’t you inquire about what Gu Dongcheng did last night? What’s the relationship between him and Shui Lan’er?”

Chu Yunhan was stunned by Jiang Baiwan’s barrage of questions. When he heard that Shui Lan’er might have something to do with Gu Dongcheng, he visibly flinched before growling in a low voice. “Impossible. I don’t believe it!”

“I don’t believe it either.” Jiang Baiwan rolled her eyes. “I can’t believe how someone with an IQ like yours brought down our Jiang family into bankruptcy. Chu Yunhan, when you came in today and I saw that green glow on your head, I feel pity for you. You can go and investigate what exactly happened yourself. I believe that although the Chu family isn’t as good as it used to be, finding it out wouldn’t be that difficult, right?”

Jiang Baiwan was mad. “Chu Yunhan, I’ve seen that your brain wasn’t working well before, but ever since you got together with Shui Lan’er, your brain has become even worse.” With that, Jiang Baiwan took out the mobile phone she had been carrying with her and started playing a recording.

The secret recording vividly captured the conversation between them the last time Shui Lan’er and Chu Yanhan came to Jiang Baiwan’s door.

Chu Yunhan’s expression instantly changed. He narrowed his eyes and glared at Jiang Baiwan, fists clenched tightly, but he didn’t dare say anything more.

Jiang Baiwan stopped the recording as soon as she saw it was done. She looked at Chu Yunhan while holding the phone. “Don’t think of any crooked ideas. This has been in my hands for such a long time and I’m not afraid to let you know today. If you dare show up here again, I’ll hand over this recording to Ji Chen.”

Ji Chen had been staying behind Jiang Baiwan obediently but was suddenly called out. He was stunned for a moment, and then nodded. “Mm.”

Chu Yunhan stood up. He stared at Jiang Baiwan for a while and then looked at the recording in her hand. Jiang Baiwan saw that he still seemed to be unsure, then gave him another dose of strong medicine. “When we were in that room, do you know how Shui Lan’er calls Gu Dongcheng?”

Chu Yunhan looked at her, unable to utter a single word.

Jiang Baiwan smiled maliciously. “I heard Shui Lan’er calling Gu Dongcheng Big Brother.”

Upon hearing this, Chu Yunhan’s body jolted. He gritted his teeth and opened his mouth to say something, but ended up walking away without saying a word.

Jiang Baiwan watched Chu Yunhan leave and only then did she heave a sigh of relief. Ji Chen supported her timely and said with a smile, “……Pretty good.”

“What did he want to accomplish?” Jiang Baiwan was puzzled. “Why come here at this time? Is there something wrong with his head?”

Ji Chen smoothly took the phone from Jiang Baiwan’s hand and pressed a few times on the screen. “No, although he’s usually a bit stupid, but at this time…… he’s here not only to question you, but more so to question me.”

With that said, Ji Chen sent a copy of the recording to his mobile phone. “Well done. Give me this recording. I’ll keep it for use.”

It took a brief moment for Jiang Baiwan’s head to turn over the matter. “He…… thought you’re the one behind it?”

“Otherwise?” Ji Chen snorted, revealing a sneer that he wouldn’t normally show. “The head of the Chu family isn’t a fool but have a fool son.”

Jiang Baiwan felt the same way. “I want to know how Shui Lan’er plans to explain this big brother issue to Chu Yunhan.”

———


On the way back, Chu Yunhan’s mind was in chaos. He didn’t know what he was doing. He had rushed to the Ji family’s house early in the morning as if his head wasn’t clear. Not only did he not get to ask anything, he was also humiliated by that woman named Jiang Baiwan.

No, was that really considered humiliating?

There was a vague thought in Chu Yunhan’s heart, but the emergence of it made him feel cold all over his body. He didn’t dare think deeply and could only force himself to focus all his attention on driving.

It’s just that Jiang Baiwan’s words were like a curse that kept haunting him—— Big Brother? Lan’er calls Gu Dongcheng Big Brother?

Why’s that? What was it that he didn’t know?

Chu Yunhan rushed back home. Shui Lan’er was sleeping inside the bedroom. She had expended too much energy and hadn’t eaten anything, leaving her body without any strength.

The moment Chu Yunhan closed the door when he got home, the loud sound awakened Shui Lan’er. She sat up in a daze, but before she had time to speak after seeing Chu Yunhan, he spoke first, “What is your relationship with Gu Dongcheng?”

Shui Lan’ers body felt like it had fallen into any icy cellar. She unconsciously gripped the blanket in her hand and looked at Chu Yunhan with a forced smile. “Yunhan…… W-what are you talking about?”

Chu Yunhan saw Shui Lan’ers reaction. What else does he need to know? His eyes were red and his lips were almost torn from biting it too hard. “You…… really know him? Big Brother?”

Shui Lan’er burst into tears. “Yunhan, I didn’t lie to you…… I-t’s just…… It’s just that I didn’t think it’s that important, so there’s no need to tell you.”

Chu Yunhan used to feel that she’s pitiful and cute whenever he saw Shui Lan’ers weeping appearance, but looking at her now like this, Chu Yunhan inexplicably felt a bit unfamiliar with her.

She really knew Gu Dongcheng?

Chu Yunhan took a deep breath and said in a low voice, “Lan’er, tell me the truth. What…… exactly happened yesterday?”

Shui Lan’er saw that it was impossible to hide this time. She lowered her head and nervously said, “The other day, Jiang Zhishu told me that he wanted to help me reconcile with Xiao Wan. As a result, Big Bro— Gu Dongcheng learned about it and said that he also wanted to make peace with Xiao Wan and the others, asking for my help.”

What happened next was the same as what Chu Yunhan and the others saw, except that the medicine took effect after Shui Lan’er arrived in the room and she wasn’t clear about anything after that.

It sounded like Jiang Baiwan and Ji Chen really had nothing to do with it, and Jiang Baiwan was more of an innocent victim.

Chu Yunhan sat on the side with his head downcast. He stared blankly at the ground and finally let out a miserable laugh. “……So that’s how it is.”

In the eyes of Jiang Baiwan and the others, did he look like a joke?

———


Although Chu Yunhan’s arrival sent a few ripples to their morning, Jiang Baiwan was so relieved when he left that she even happily decided to personally cook, intending to make something for Ji Chen.

Although Ji Chen had also tasted Jiang Baiwan’s average cooking skills, he still couldn’t help but tremble when he thought of the tasteless bowl of Malatang from before……

Jiang Baiwan took one look at him and knew what he was thinking. She rolled her eyes grumpily. “Don’t think that I cook for everyone. You’re the first person to eat the food I made.”

Ji Chen looked at her with a smile. “Then I’m so honored.”

With that said, Ji Chen walked up to Jiang Baiwan and took the kitchen knife from her hand. “Why don’t I do it for you today?”

Jiang Baiwan was taken aback, but before she could react, even her position was taken by Ji Chen. Seeing him skillfully chopping vegetables, she couldn’t help but marvel. “You’re…… amazing ah.”

Ji Chen was so happy that he got a little carried away. “I also learned from others. Before, Wei—”

No, he couldn’t say it.

Ji Chen quickly closed his mouth, however, Jiang Baiwan had already noticed something wrong.

“Wei?” Jiang Baiwan looked at him strangely. “What Wei?”

Ji Chen shrugged his shoulders. “Before, in order[1]wèi le to eat a fulfilling meal, I’ve studied on my own.”

Jiang Baiwan’s intuition told her it wasn’t this, but there was nothing she could do and could only put the doubts in the back of her mind for the time being. She stood at the door of the kitchen and watched Ji Chen cook. While the atmosphere was warm and peaceful, Jiang Baiwan’s cell phone suddenly rang.

Jiang Baiwan picked up the phone and saw that it was Jiang Zhishu. She frowned subconsciously before picking up. “Hello? What is it?”

“Hello? Sis.” Jiang Zhishu’s voice sounded a little anxious on the other end of the phone. “Did you get the news?”

“Mom and Dad are back in the country.”
