    Chapter 168: Marriage is a Conspiracy

    “What’s a pity?” Cheng Rui asked instinctively.

    “It’s a pity that your destiny is not favourable. Forcibly trying to control the world, you’ll end up in a miserable state. If you want to survive, you can only become a man’s appendage. This is the only way you can become rich and prosperous and enjoy a lifetime. Otherwise…” Tian Ji Zi said.

    “Who… who are you?!”

    Facing the ferocious expression on Tian Ji Zi’s face, Cheng Rui felt as if everything inside her was being seen through. She couldn’t help but feel alarmed.

    “This is Divination Master Tian Ji Zi. He calculates everything without omission. He never jokes. I suggest you listen to him,” Su Lang said in a slightly stern tone.

    Cheng Rui’s eyes flickered with curiosity.

    According to what Tian Ji Zi said, she could only become a man’s appendage in order to enjoy a good life.

    Then, who was this man?

    Him?

    Perhaps, there was no one else but him.

    He truly was her nemesis.

    In her more than twenty years of life, she had never been troubled by romantic relationships, but after meeting him, she couldn’t help but worry about him frequently.

    “It seems I don’t have any other choice.” Cheng Rui recalled what Wang Haoran had said and immediately accepted Su Lang’s suggestion.

    “It seems you would be a good subordinate,” Su Lang couldn’t help but praise her.

    He thought that the man who would willingly become Cheng Rui’s appendage was himself.

    “What do you need me to do?”

    Cheng Rui was very clever, so she naturally understood that these two men didn’t come here just to frighten her; they had something for her to do.

    “I need 2 billion in cash,” Su Lang boldly stated.

    “Is this some kind of protection fee?” Cheng Rui exclaimed in shock.

    “You can think of it that way, but this is definitely worth it. Ma Hongsheng is currently incapacitated. With just you, a woman, you won’t be able to protect these assets. But I can help you and guarantee that no one will dare to target you or your assets.” Su Lang spoke from a superior position.

    “Ma Hongsheng does indeed have many assets, that’s true. But 2 billion in cash all at once requires some time.”

    “I’ll give you five days. Also, I need a sum of money urgently, right now.”

    Cheng Rui couldn’t help but feel irritated. This guy in front of her was practically a robber!

    However, she still remembered Wang Haoran’s instructions and didn’t confront them. Instead, she handed over a card.

    “This is my subsidiary card with a credit limit of 200 million, the PIN is six 6s.”

    “Woman, you’re obedient. I’m quite satisfied with you.”

    Su Lang directly took the card, arrogantly praised her, and then left with Tian Ji Zi in a grand manner.

    “What kind of nonsense…”

    After Su Lang and Tian Ji Zi left, Cheng Rui’s expression became gloomy. She recorded the conversation with her phone.

    Then, she called Wang Haoran.

    [“As you suspected, that man with a mysterious identity who contacted Ma Hongsheng came to me. He demanded 2 billion and even extorted a subsidiary card with a 200 million credit limit from me.”]

    [“Did you record the process of the extortion?”]

    [“I can handle things. Do you still doubt that?”]

    [“Very well,”] 

    Wang Haoran smiled and then asked with doubt, 

    [“You said he brought a man with a hideous face. What kind of person is that?”]

    [“He said his name is Divination Master Tian Ji Zi.”]

    [“A fortuneteller?”]

    [“Yes, he seems to be able to see through people’s hearts. He even calculated for me, and it seems… it was quite accurate.”]

    Wang Haoran’s mind stirred. He couldn’t help but think of the fortuneteller Yang Jingwan had mentioned.

    [“During this time, he might need your help in many ways. Use this opportunity to gather more information. If there’s anything special, remember to let me know.”]

    [“Understood.”]

    [In the evening] 

    A preoccupied Yang Jingwan returned home from work.

    Li Manli was engrossed in watching a soap opera.

    “Mom, there’s something I want to ask you.”

    Seeing that Su Lang hadn’t returned yet, Yang Jingwan took the chance to speak to Li Manli.

    “What is it?”

    “It’s about that fortuneteller you found a year ago. How skilled was he?”

    “He was incredibly skilled. He was quite famous in Qingling at the time. Many people who consulted him made a fortune. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have gone to him for advice. Don’t think we’re fools, okay?”

    “Where is this fortuneteller now?”

    “After you married Su Lang, we went to find him. But suddenly, he disappeared from Qingling. He probably went somewhere else. Such skilled people are elusive. It’s not easy to find them.”

    “He disappeared right after I got married…?” Yang Jingwan’s suspicion grew.

    She immediately called Wang Haoran and informed him of her conversation with Li Manli.

    [“I told you, your marriage with Su Lang is definitely not a coincidence,”] Wang Haoran affirmed.

    [“But that fortuneteller is a skilled person, while Su Lang is just a waste. All he does is brag. Why would the fortuneteller listen to him?”] Yang Jingwan was puzzled and didn’t get answers.

    [“Have you ever thought that Su Lang’s bragging might actually be true?”] Wang Haoran guided her thoughts.

    [“This… How could that be possible?”] Yang Jingwan found it hard to believe.

    “Wife, wife?” Just then, Su Lang’s voice came from outside.

    “I’m watching TV. Why are you yelling?” Li Manli complained.

    “Wife, I brought the dresses back. Can we continue with the wedding?” Su Lang pointed at the clothes he brought and said with a smile.

    “Who knows if what you brought back is genuine?” Yang Jingwan snorted and then opened the clothes to check.

    She quickly realized that this was indeed the fishtail wedding dress she had seen in the bridal shop yesterday. The diamonds and golden threads were all authentic, not imitations.

    “These two dresses are worth 1.98 million. Where did you get so much money? And who are you?” Yang Jingwan looked at Su Lang in disbelief.

    “By the time of the wedding, you’ll naturally find out,” Su Lang revealed a mysterious smile.

    He intended to accomplish another miraculous transformation, from a useless and worthless son-in-law to an invincible God of War, during the wedding, making Yang Jingwan irreversibly fall in love with him.

    For now, he didn’t want to reveal too much.
