Shi Fengyue’s words gave the Jiang family reassurance.
In the office, Shi Fengyue was conducting a more detailed consultation with Jiang Zhuo. Jiang Chen was with him. The corners of Yang Si’s mouth twitched upwards again and again in joy. After the tension passed, she finally felt thirsty. She whispered to Jiang Chen and then quietly left the office.

After drinking a glass of water in one breath, Yang Si couldn’t hide the joy on her face. She walked around clutching the bag in her hand, and after wandering for a while, she finally couldn’t help laughing out loud. After she ran to the restroom to wash her face, looking at the no longer gloomy face in the mirror, the corners of her lips raised.
The bad days of this family have finally come to an end.
When Jiang Zhuo got better and their son got into a good university, everything would be fine at home.
Yang Si smiled, but her eyes couldn’t help turning red. She covered her mouth and squeezed her eyes, crying and laughing at the same time.
The past few months have been a never ending despair and hardship she had never felt before, but she did not dare to shed even a tear. Her husband was in the most pain and sadness, and her child was at a sensitive and vulnerable age. If even she could not support the family, then the family would really collapse.
But she was also afraid. She was afraid that her husband would fall into depression, and would lose himself in the depths of his depression in the future, immersed in the shadow of being unable to stand up. She was afraid that her child would be affected by things at home, be distracted at such an important moment, and that he would fail in the college entrance examination a year later. She was also afraid that she wouldn’t be able to bear this heavy burden herself, and this family would really collapsed just like this.
She kept gritting her teeth and prepared for the worst, but when seeing hope in a sea of despair, how could she not be ecstatic?
Yang Si quietly went to the secluded small hospital garden alone. She sat on the bench, crying and laughing while covering her mouth, just wanting to vent all her suppressed emotions during this time.
After crying it out, she fell silent again.
Her husband’s legs could be saved, and so it was certain that he would undergo the surgery.
But after the car accident, most of the family’s savings had been spent. Now all the savings in the family added up to only 30,000 yuan. Although she didn’t know the specific cost of the operation, Yang Si also knew that the family’s money was far from enough to support her husband’s surgery expenses. Moreover, her child’s schooling and food needed money, so how could there be no savings left at home.
The top priority was to get a sum of money that could cover Jiang Zhuo’s surgery costs as soon as possible. It was just that, towards such a large amount of money, how was it possible to so easily be raised.
Yang Si thought about the people who could lend money to them, and finally found that they could only borrow at most 30,000 yuan, which was already the limit that their friends could support. Most of the households at this time were not that wealthy and those who could take out tens of thousands of yuan were already quite well-off.
In fact, before father Jiang was injured, the Jiang family’s conditions were also considered to be well-off. At this time, a deposit of more than 200,000 yuan in the bank was considered a very well-off family. Because of this, every time the Yang family came to mooch money from them, although Jiang Zhuo was irritated, he never really raged about it. He was angry not because of the money, but because of the way the Yang family treated Yang Si as an ATM yet never felt bad for her and treated her better.
Yang Si knew all of this and it was precisely because she knew that she developed the idea of severing ties with her natal family members, but before they had time to do anything, Jiang Zhuo had an accident, and the Yang family changed their face and threw stones at them while they were down.
Now Jiang Zhuo was in urgent need of treatment expenses. If the Yang family could repay the money owed to them, it would solve the urgent need of the Jiang family, but was it possible that the Yang family would pay it back?
Thinking of what happened last time she went to the Yang family with Jiang Chen, Yang Si gritted her teeth. Although she had cut off relations with her parents and younger brother, she had to get the money back!
If there was no hope for Jiang Zhuo’s legs, then the money would not be needed, but now that there was a chance of recovery, she had to seize it no matter what. But how to get the Yang family to repay the money, she still needed to think about it some more.
Thinking this, Yang Si couldn’t help but smile, no matter how difficult the family was, as long as there was hope, she believed that their family could overcome the difficulties and shoulder on.
When Jiang Chen found Yang Si, he happened to see her smiling face with reddened eyes.
Yang Si quickly wiped her eyes before turning to look at Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen sat down beside her with a smile, and said softly, “I know you are happy, and so am I.”
“Yeah.” Yang Si smiled relaxedly: “Your Dad’s leg can be cured, Mom is so happy.”
“Mom, were you just thinking about Dad’s surgery fee and follow-up treatment costs?”
Jiang Chen turned his head to look at her, his clear eyes see straight through her, and Yang Si, who wanted to find an excuse to hide it, opened her mouth but couldn’t speak, and finally could only nod her head.
But she still didn’t want the child to worry about it. She smiled and said, “Mom was indeed thinking about this, but you don’t have to worry, Mom already has a solution.”
“What solution?” Jiang Chen had been direct with his parents since he was a child, and he would tell them anything, and the same was true at this time: “Mom, do you want to sell the house or go to the Yang family to ask for the money back?”
Yang Si was stunned, she didn’t expect Jiang Chen to guess what she was thinking.
Yang Si was very clear about how unlikely it was to get money from the Yang family, but Jiang Zhuo’s legs couldn’t wait. If she really couldn’t get it, selling the family’s house was the fastest way to get money, but…..in that case, Jiang Chen would have a lot of trouble going to school.
That was the point she had been hesitating about.
Jiang Chen naturally knew what Yang Si was thinking, and even knew what she was hesitating about.
In the first life, under the unremitting search of the Jiang family, a doctor finally agreed to perform Jiang Zhuo’s operation, but he also bluntly said that he could not guarantee that Jiang Zhuo could stand up, and the success rate was very low. At that time, it had been more than a year since Jiang Zhuo’s car accident, and the family’s savings had long since dwindled to nothing. Naturally, the Yang family would not fork over any money, but for this slim hope, after Yang Si and Jiang Chen discussed it over, they decided to choose the surgery.
At that time, Jiang Chen naturally agreed to the treatment. How could the family’s house and his studies be more important than his father’s legs? After the house was sold, there could be a new one, and if his studies were delayed, he could repeat his studies. Whereas Jiang Zhuo’s chance at standing up was just this once.
However, Jiang Zhuo had already given up hope at that time. He didn’t want his family to sell the house or be in debt because of him. He even quarreled with Yang Si about it. In the end, the house was still sold, and then Jiang Zhuo was coaxed and persuaded to be sent to the operating room.
That operation was unsuccessful.
The failure of the operation and the lack of a fixed place to live became the last straw that broke the camel’s back. Jiang Zhuo felt that he was a drag on his family and committed suicide on a quiet night.
Jiang Chen still remembered that that time was truly the most despairing period for the family, his father’s funeral, his mother’s crying, the Yang family’s ridicule, and the college entrance examination that was about to come in just over a month……That time when the house was sold was the fuse that caused the Jiang family to really fall into desperate straits.
Even if the family’s situation in this life had not reached that point in the first life, and Jiang Chen firmly believed that Shi Fengyue could cure Jiang Zhuo’s legs, he had never thought of selling the house for money, not only because in the first life it became the biggest regret and pain of the Jiang family, but also because he never thought about letting the Yang family live freely and wantonly with the money they owed the Jiang family.
Whether it was to buy real estate or speculate in stocks to make money or to design software to make money, it would take a certain amount of time, and Jiang Zhuo’s legs couldn’t wait. So since the beginning, Jiang Chen only thought about getting the money back from the Yang family. When he co-founded a company with Huo Bo and Shen Xu, although he didn’t manage the company’s daily affairs, he also learned a lot of things by their side that ordinary people might not have access to, such as pursuing debts.
It was just that Yang Si must agree to that method, and only she could come forward, so Jiang Chen couldn’t act rashly before he understood Yang Si’s thoughts.
Now, Jiang Chen looked at Yang Si’s expression and felt that the time might have finally come.
“Mom.” Jiang Chen looked at her and said seriously: “I know you may want to sell the house, but have you ever thought, if the house is sold, where will our family live? What about going to school in the future? What will Dad think? He absolutely will not want us to have no place to live because of him. Before the operation, we need to maintain a good physical and mental state. If Dad knows, could he still undergo the operation in his best state?”
Jiang Chen picked out all of Yang Si’s concerns, word by word, and pressed those concerns towards her, causing her to instantly shrink back from the idea of selling the house, becoming more apprehensive about the idea.
“But…..if we don’t sell the house, what about your father’s treatment costs?”
Yang Si didn’t intend to let Jiang Chen know the family’s economic situation and cause him to be worried about it, but facing Jiang Chen at this time, she unknowingly expressed her concerns and worries.
“If I say that I have a way to get back the money the Yang family owes us, but it may cause you and the Yang family to not even be left with a single trace of affection, will you still be willing?”
Yang Si was taken aback, her eyes widened in disbelief, and she nodded almost without hesitation: “We and the Yang family have long since had a falling out, they have no affection for me at all, if the money can be get back for your father’s treatment, what do I still care about that nonexistent trace of affection?”
Jiang Chen smiled, he nodded, and said, “I remember that the several large sums of money that Yang Tianci borrowed from our family at the beginning were all with IOUs, do you still have those IOUs?”
Yang Si directly ignored Jiang Chen’s direct referral to Yang Tianci’s name, nodded and said, “In the drawer where the important documents are kept at home.”
“That’s good.” Jiang Chen’s brows and eyes curved, revealing a mouthful of small white teeth, the little dimple on one side deepened a little more, and that handsome face showed the liveliness of a youth: “My plan is this…..”
Yang Si heard what Jiang Chen whispered in her ear, her eyes widened, and then asked in a low voice, “Is this really possible? This won’t break the law, right?”
“Of course it won’t break the law.” Jiang Chen sat up straight, his expression returned to his usual modesty and calmness: “The transfer of creditor’s rights is legal, but we may need to give up part of it to the debt collectors.”
“Of course.” Yang Si agreed immediately: “As long as we can get back enough for your father’s surgery, the extra money can even be given to the debt collectors.”
After she finished speaking, she was a little worried: “It won’t get us involved in any trouble, right? Those people…..”
“Don’t worry, Mom, I will find an official debt collection agency.”
You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )
The methods used by official debt collection agencies were naturally legal and reasonable, but they were also well versed in the way of stepping on the edge of the line, which could not only make the debtors miserable, but also make them have nowhere to complain, and could only pay back the money obediently. But as for these things, it was not what Yang Si, who had already transferred the creditor’s right, needed to know.
Among the flowers of spring, the young man had a bright smile, a gentle and elegant demeanor, and appeared the most upright and honest that one could be.
