The Crippled Boss Loves Me - Chapter 739
739 Sounds Unlucky
Su Ling’s family of three was indeed sitting next door, but the expressions on their faces were not very friendly. On the surface, this coffee shop seemed to have a good sense of privacy. There was a screen between the seats, so one couldn’t see who was at the next table. However, it was not soundproof, and conversation could be heard. Speaking at an average volume might not attract any attention, but if one raised their voice, the people next door could hear them clearly. However, the Su family didn’t have time to pay attention to the volume of their conversation because they were angry.
“Su Ling, how can you say that about your father and me? Is that what you think of us?” Mrs. Su looked at Su Ling in disbelief, and her eyes turned red. “you’re mommy and daddy’s only daughter. Everything we do is for you.”
“Since you are doing this for me, why can’t you consider your daughter?” After she got pregnant, Su Ling’s mood fluctuated a lot. Su Ling, who had just smashed her cup, was the first to cry. She held her stomach and choked as she spoke, “why don’t you think about it? I have only married into the Lu family for a few days. What will my in-laws think of me if my family doesn’t help me with such a small favor? They would think we are stingy and heartless. Will I still have a good life in the future?”
Lu Shaoyang had finally stopped going out to drink these few days and became more patient with her when he stayed home. The project now tied up all the liquid funds of the Lu Corporation, and the bank refused to approve the loan. When the Lu family was short of money, as the daughter-in-law of the Lu family, wasn’t it normal for her to ask her family for help?
“You always say that the Su family organization will be mine in the end. We are now a family with the Lu family. Now that the Lu family is short of money, yet you are not willing to help…” Su Ling was still self-righteous and said unhappily, “if our family refused to help them, can we even call ourselves as a part of their family? How will I hold my head up high in the Lu family in the future? How can I face Brother Shaoyang like this?”
Bang! “Are you sure that is a small favor? How could I have raised you to be so innocent!” President Su couldn’t take it anymore. He slammed the table angrily as he said, “Do you know how much that project will cost? Emptying the Lu Corporation and our Su Corporation might not even be enough to make it through! You’ve only been married to Lu Shaoyang for a short time, and you are already giving him your family’s property?” A project that could allow the Lu Corporation to take a big step forward and become one of the top companies in S City would not require a small investment. Previously, when the news of the marriage between the Lu family and the Su family was released, the shares of both families soared, and the situation was great. Under such circumstances, the success rate of applying for a loan from the bank was higher, and the loan was also more generous. Even so, the Lu Corporation was still short on money. Moreover, the Lu family’s shares had fallen greatly, affecting their reputation in the business industry, and the bank had lost trust in them. They could not get any loans at all!
“I am just borrowing some money to keep things going. How is that giving my family’s property to Brother Shaoyang? Dad, you’re too mean,” Su Ling still didn’t realize her mistake. She pouted and said unhappily, “in your heart, is money more important than your daughter’s future? It’s not like they are not returning the money. When the project is completed, won’t our family get the money back from them?”
“You only care about the profits after the project is completed. Why don’t you think about what would happen if the project goes wrong?” Seeing the innocent smile on Su Ling’s face, President Su gritted his teeth in anger. “Have you ever thought about what would happen if the Su family emptied our money on the project and the money was still insufficient? Who else can you borrow money from if the bank doesn’t approve loans? Are our two families going to suffer hunger together after we go bankrupt?” In this world, how could there be a project that was 100% profitable? Every project had its risks. The greater the return, the greater the risk. Su Ling only saw the beauty of success in that investment. Why didn’t she think that if there were any unexpected issues, both companies could go bankrupt? Return the money? By then, if all the money was invested in the project, how would Lu Guo pay back the money to the Su family?
“Dad, why do you always say such disheartening words? It sounds so unlucky!” Su Ling didn’t listen to her father’s advice and still stubbornly convinced them. She frowned and said, “dad, you’re too conservative. That’s why your business isn’t as big as the Lu Corporations. Why can’t you think of the good side? Wouldn’t it benefit our family if the Lu family succeeded in their business? If he did not really treat me as his family member, he would not have asked me for help even if he was in trouble.” Thinking of last night, Lu Shaoyang was unprecedentedly gentle. He held her hand to discuss and draw their future blueprint. He had thought of a future with her in it. Su Ling could not help but blush.
