Chapter 1: Chapter 1 - The Beginning

In one of the suburban area of Huadong, one of the luxurious villa, the Xiao family's villa is brightly lit in the evening.

Tonight is the birthday banquet of the seventy years old Madam Xiao, the current owner of the Xiao family.

Many grandchildren, granddaughter, and one of the grandsons-in-law came bearing gifts for Madam Xiao.

"Grandma, I heard that you love tea very much. This is a century old Pu'er tea brick. It is worth about $500,000. I bought this as a birthday gift for you!"

"Grandma, I also heard that you believe and devoted to Buddha. This jade Buddha is carved from Hetian jade. Its worth about $700,000! I bought this as a gift for you too!"

Madam Xiao looked at the various gifts and laughed happily, making the whole family happy. As the old says, "as long as the elder are happy, everyone will be happy in the family."

However right at this moment, Madam Xiao's eldest grandson-in-law, Ma Wen, suddenly said: "Grandma, can you lend me a million? Aunt Li Na from the orphanage has been diagnosed with uremia and needs a lot of money for treatment."

As soon as he speaks, the entire Xiao family was stunned.

Everyone looked at Ma Wen with disdained eyes.

This live-in son-in-law is too brave right? Madam Xiao was celebrating her birthday today, not only did he not prepare any gifts, yet he even dared to open his mouth and ask Madam Xiao to borrow one million?

Three years ago, no one knows where did the surviving Old Master Xiao found Ma Wen from. He insisted on marrying his eldest granddaughter Xiao Yu Ying to him. At that time, Ma Wen was penniless. Exactly a pauper to the boot, and it is still the same as now.

After the two got married, the Old Master passed away shortly after. Since then, the Xiao family has been deliberately trying to drive him away.

It is just that Ma Wen is nonchalant about it, and does not care about other people's insults. So he has always been a live-in son-in-law in the Xiao family to present.

Still, it is entirely useless to ask Madam Xiao to borrow money today.

The Aunt Li Na from the orphanage where he was taken in and saved had uremia. She required dialysis and kidney transplantation which required at least one million. He really has no other option but bite the bullet and ask Madam Xiao for the money.

He felt that since today is the Madam Xiao's birthday, she may be kind enough and willing to help him while she is happy.

Unexpectedly, the Madam Xiao who was still laughing for moment ago, immediately her face darken and sullen the moment she heard Ma Wen request.

She threw the teacup in her hand to the ground and shouted angrily at him: "You bastard! Are.. Are you here to celebrate my birthday or to borrow money?!"

Ma Wen's wife, Yu Ying, hurried forward and explained to the Madam Xiao: "Grandma, Ma Wen is unmindful. Please don't be angry."

With that said, as she was about to pull Ma Wen aside.

At this time, Yu Ying's cousin, Li Jun, sneered and said, "Sister! Look at what kind of rubbish you married to. Look at Fei Qun and me. Although we were just engaged and yet to married, even so Fei Qun gave grandma a Hetian Jade Buddha. It is fine that for your husband did not bring any gifts. Yet he still have the face to ask grandma to borrow money!"

"That's right! Brother Ma Wen, we are both grandsons-in-law of the Xiao family. You, as the eldest grandson-in-law, really are a failure!"

The man who spoke was Li Jun's fiancé, Fei Qun, the young master of a large local family, the Wang Family

Although Fei Qun was about to marry Li Jun, in his mind, Li Jun's appearance was a thousand miles away from Ma Wen's wife Yu Ying in comparison.

Yu Ying was a well-known goddess in Huadong, but seeing the goddess marrying this worthless man and a pauper to boot, Fei Qun was obviously very agitated.

"This kind of garbage, it's best to get him out of our Xiao family as soon as possible!"

"Yes! The Xiao family's face has been completely lost by this guy!"

"I think it is fake that he wanted to borrowed money. He is definitely trying to swindle some money during the birthday feast of Madam Xiao!"

Ma Wen couldn't help clenching his fists when he saw that the entire Xiao family was targeting and insulting him.

Had it not been for the medical expenses of his savior, he would have turned around and left this place of fake extravaganza and pomp where everyone just trying to flatter Madam Xiao so that when she passed away in the future, they will get some of her asset.

However, thinking of his father's teachings to him since he was a child, "Kindness of dripping water, the retribution of the spring, will never ignore friends", he tried to suppress the humiliation in his heart, and said to the Madam Xiao: "Grandma, saving a life is better than building a seven-level Buddha Pagoda. Please be merciful!"

Someone snorted coldly and cursed: "You surnamed Ye! Don't you dare to give grandma ecstasy here! If you want to have someone to help you, you can go out from here and find a way by yourself! Don't let your grandma pay to help you save some people. Who are you to do so?"

It was Li Jun's brother, Li Bo.

The brother and sisters have always been dissatisfied with Yu Ying, who is superior to them in all aspects. So they like to seize at every opportunity to mock Ma Wen the most.

Yu Ying on the side looked a little embarrassed and said, "Grandma, Ma Wen lost his father when he was eight years old. Aunt Li Na from the orphanage brought him up. He wanted to repay his gratitude because of a grateful heart. Please help him."

Old Madam Xiao said with a dark and sullen face: "Let me help him? Okay, unless you divorce him and then marry Mr. Jiang. If you do, I will immediately give him one million!"

The Madam Xiao was talking about Bao, who had been pursuing Yu Ying. The Jiang family was an upper-class family in Huadong, much more powerful than the Xiao family, and the Madam Xiao always wanted to curry favor with them.

At this time, the housekeeper ran in and said loudly: "Mr. Jiang sent someone with a birthday gift! A carved jade amulet from Laokeng which worth three million!"

Madam Xiao was overjoyed and blurted out: "Quickly bring it to me and let me have a look!"

The butler immediately handed over an emerald green jade amulet. Everyone present let out a breath of surprise.

This jade amulet is emerald green, crystal clear, without a trace of impurities, and looks like a first-class genuine product.

Fei Qun, who had gifted the Hetian Jade Buddha, saw this jade amulet. His face turned a little bit awkward. Unexpectedly, that Bao who has nothing to do with the Xiao family, would gift such an expensive amulet so generously!

Madam Xiao happily played with jade amulets and said merrily: "Oh, Mr. Jiang is really kind! Only if he could be my grandson-in-law, I would really wake up in my dreams!"

After that, she looked up at Yu Ying: "How about my condition, would you like to consider it?"

Yu Ying shook her head: "Grandma, I will not divorce Ma Wen."

Madam Xiao's expression instantly turned dark, and she angrily cursed: "Don't give me your opinion! You must divorce with this rubbish! Let this rubbish get out of my face! My birthday banquet, he is not allowed to participate!"

Ma Wen was completely disappointed, and he is embarrassed to stay in the Xiao family at this time, so he said to Yu Ying, "Yu Ying, I will go to the hospital to see Aunt Li Na."

Yu Ying hurriedly said, "Then I will go with you."

Madam Xiao cursed at this moment: "If you leave too, I won't have you as granddaughter in the future! You take your father and mother and get out of Xiao's house with this rubbish!"

Yu Ying looked startled, and she didn't expect the Madam Xiao to say such harsh words.

Ma Wen said hurriedly: "You just stay here. Don't worry about me."

With that said, before Yu Ying recovered, he turned around and walked out.

Li Bo laughed behind him, "Oh my good brother-in-law, you left with a hungry stomach. Will you go to the streets to beg for dinner? In that case, won't our Xiao family's face will be lost all of it by you? Here, I still have it. For a coin, you can at least buy a steamed bun to eat!"

Li Bo said, took out a coin and threw it at Ma Wen's feet.

The entire Xiao family burst into laughter.

Ma Wen gritted his teeth and left the Xiao family without looking back.

When he rushed to the hospital, Ma Wen immediately went to the payment office, wanted to discuss with the hospital for payment option. And to inform them that if the medical expenses can be delayed for another two days.

However, when he asked the nurse, he was suddenly told that Aunt Li Na had been sent to the best Hospital in Huabei overnight.

Ma Wen was shocked, and hurriedly asked her: "How much does it cost? I'll find a way!"

The other party said: "A total of three million is needed. One million has been paid, and there is still a remaining of two million. It will need to be paid in a week."

"Who paid this million?"

The other party shook her head: "I don't know either."

Ma Wen was surprised and wanted to figure it out. When he turned his head, a man in a black suit with gray hair, about fifty years old, was standing behind him.

With eyes facing each other, the man bowed to him and said, "Young master, you have suffered for so many years!"

Ma Wen frowned, as if his temperament had changed, and asked coldly: "Are you Da Ren?"

The other party said in surprise: "Young Master! You still remember me!"

Ma Wen's expression froze, and he murmured: "Of course I remember! I remember each and every one of you! Back then, you forced my parents to take me out of Huabei and escape all the way here. During this time, my parents died unexpectedly. I have also became an orphan, so why are you looking for me now?!"

Da Ren said very painfully: "Young Master, when your father passed away, Old Master Ye was also extremely sad. He has been looking for you for so many years. Now that we had found you, he wants you to go back to him with me."

Ma Wen said coldly: "You can go, I will never see him in my life."

Da Ren said, "Young Master… Do you still blame Old Master Ye?"

"Of course." Ma Wen said word by word: "I will never forgive him in my life!"

"Hey…" Da Ren sighed and said: "Before I came, Master Ye said you might not forgive him."

"That means he has self-knowledge!"

Da Ren said: "Old Master Ye knows that you have suffered over the years, he wants to compensate you a little. If you don't want to go back, he will buy the largest company in Huadong and give it to you. In addition, he has asked me to give you this card. The password is your birthday."

With that, Da Ren handed over a Citibank premium card.

"Young Master. There are only five of this cards in the entire country."

Ma Wen shook his head and said, "Take it away, I don't want it."

Da Ren said: "Young Master. For your savior, you still have a shortfall of 2 million in medical expenses. If you fail to pay, her life may be in danger."

Ma Wen frowned: "You deliberately set me up?"

Da Ren hurriedly said, "I don't dare to! If you accept this card, it will be enough to pay the money."

Ma Wen asked, "How much money is in this card?"

"Old Master Ye said, this card is for you as a little pocket money. Not much, just a total of 10 billion."
