Chapter 142: Have an affair
When Yang Chen got out of the elevator in the ground floor, there were quite a number of people standing in the hall, they surrounded the resting area meant for clients. The security of Yu Lei International maintained order, whilst they seemed to be in the midst of an argument with someone, but for unknown reasons, security did not take action.
When Yang Chen walked to edge of the crowd, a number of people noticed him. After spending over a month in the company, many people in the company recognized Yang Chen. They had expectant gazes as they looked at him, some men even gave him a thumbs up, as if they were praising him for something, there were also people who looked at him with disdain.
As the crowd paved the way for him, Yang Chen easily walked to the resting area with leather sofas, and saw the situation.
In the resting area near the window, two men and one woman sat on a sofa. Several Yu Lei security guards stood opposite them not knowing what to do, alongside the person in-charge of the front desk who wore a black-white uniform.
Of the two men, one was Yu Hui who was seen on Friday night, while the other man was a man in an old fashioned gray suit, he looked to be approximately thirty. This man wore a pair of black eyeglasses, he had a stern face that was filled with anger, he looked gloomy and ashen while also proud.
As for the woman, it was Zhao Hongyan who hadn’t come to the office this morning. On this day, Zhao Hongyan looked to be in bad shape, she had no makeup. Her hair was messy, and there were tear stains on her face that had yet to dry. She sat beside the gray-clothed man while nervously holding onto her thighs, without the slightest movement.
The sharp-eyed Yu Hui was the first among them to notice the incoming Yang Chen, with a trace of pride and cruelty in his eyes he pointed at Yang Chen and said, “Ge, look, this is the man who was with Sister-in-law!!”
Zhao Hongyan raised her head, she saw that Yang Chen had actually come, her eyes were filled with panic, but she bit her lips, afraid to speak.
“You were looking for me?” Yang Chen glanced at the loud Yu Hui, but still turned to ask the gloomy looking Yu Guang.
Yu Guang stood up, he noticed the disdain in Yang Chen’s gaze, and said with a deep voice, “You’re the one who helped this slut bully my little brother?”
“Slut? Little brother?” Yang Chen asked back with a smile, “Who are you referring to?”
Yu Guang angrily shouted, “Don’t feign ignorance! Little Hui has told me what happened that night a long time ago! You and this slut ran over to the bar, and had a tryst in the car park. This was exposed by my little brother, and you two joined up to chase him away! Did you think that a disgustingly filthy garbage of society like you could deceive me!?”
The employees of Yu Lei International in the surroundings revealed expressions of having understood something, they became more and more excited, and began murmuring amongst themselves.
Yang Chen sighed, “You trust your little brother that much? That may not be the truth.”
“Are you saying that I can’t trust my own brother, and should trust a degenerate like you?!” Yu Guang loudly shouted, “Let me tell you this! Today, you have to give me an account!”
Yang Chen found this rather absurd, he asked, “Account what to you?”
“I want you to admit in front of everybody that you have an adulterous relationship with my wife! You’re a third party! You have done lower than low things with this slut!” Yu Guang said with an austere expression.
Yang Chen couldn’t help but laugh, “Is there something wrong with your brain? Leaving aside the fact that I didn’t do anything shameful, you want to call your wife a slut, and force another man to admit to adultery in public. Are you trying to ruin your family’s reputation, torment me, or do you enjoy being treated as a moron?”
Yu Guang’s face was flushed, he said with hatred, “You dare scold me! I’m an educated and refined man, I won’t argue with someone of your level! However, I would still have you pair of adulterous man and woman to expose your deeds in broad daylight, in the way which makes society right!”
“Are you a professor or a government official?” Yang Chen suddenly asked.
“What do you mean?” Yu Guang creased his brows.
“If you’re a professor, then I understand, that is a profession that likes to spout bullshit. If you’re a government official, then I understand as well, because they like to spout lies with their eyes wide open.” Yang Chen said with a smile.
“I am an editor! Guang Hua Daily’s and Righteous Magazine’s chief editor! For an unrefined man like you, you definitely have no idea the heights of the thoughts a person like me has! Let me tell you this as well, you have no qualifications to discuss professors and government officials, they are the elites of society, you’re just a person who calls grapes sour just because you can’t eat them, garbage that I’ve seen numerous times!”
Yang Chen scratched his head, then asked the nervous front desk manager, “Is that newspaper and magazine very famous? Why haven’t I heard of it before?”
That pretty manager was about to cry, she bumped into such a horrid matter this early in the morning, and had no way of continuing the front desk’s normal operation. With a forced smile, she replied, “They are publications with political content, and are the most influential within Zhong Hai.”
Yang Chen nodded, then said with an embarrassed smile, “I truly have no idea, I only read magazines and newspaper that have beauties in them. However, I finally understand why you speak so much nonsense.”
“Vulgar!” Yu Guang said with a righteous tone, “Only an uneducated man like you would do those filthy things with this slut, I advise you to admit your deeds in front of everybody here, otherwise, we will meet in court!”
“You want to meet in court about what?” Yang Chen sneered and said, “Meet the judge and sentence your wife to me, or do I have to sentence my wife to you? You must be dreaming, with the way you are, even the female pig I raise at home might not want you.”
“You……” Yu Guang was evidently no expert at arguing at such a pace, he angrily stamped his foot down, then turned around to haul up Zhao Hongyan who was seated with a hurt expression. He pointed at Zhao Hongyan’s nose and scolded, “Slut! Hurry and say it to everyone here! Bring out the truth!”
Zhao Hongyan felt wronged as tears filled her eyes and she asked, “What do you want me to say?”
“You’re still trying to adamantly deny it? Say that you have a shameful and filthy relationship with this wild man, so that I can divorce you justly and honorably!” Yu Guang haughtily said.
“Ah Guang… I’ve said this many times, Yang Chen and I are innocent. Don’t be like this, what happened isn’t like what you think……” Zhao Hongyan implored, “Can we go back? I will slowly explain to you, I really didn’t do anything to let you down, will you please believe me?”
“Shut up! Little Hui saw it with his own eyes, you came up with many ways to lie to me and have fun in a bar, these are all evidences! You still dare deny!?” Yu Guang glared at her, “You finally know how shameful you are? You don’t dare to spout it out now!?”
“Ah Guang! You’ve already lost enough face today, our Yu Family can’t handle this loss of face, let’s leave!”
Zhao Hongyan stretched out her arm to pull Yu Guang’s hand, but her grip forcefully thrown off by Yu Guang, causing her to lose balance and fall onto the ground!
Yu Guang grimly smiled and said, “You still dare claim to be a part of my Yu Family? Our Yu Family only has open and righteous people, how can there be a slut like you who commits adultery with vulgar men!? Today, I want to expose the shameless vixen you are in front of your company’s people, so as to avoid others from receiving harm from you after I divorce you!”
Zhao Hongyan’s expression was dead. In the instance where she was swung to the ground by Yu Guang, other than the pain in her knee, her heart also felt like it had shattered. She sat on the cold, hard ground in a daze, and her tears began flowing without her knowing.
On the other hand, Yu Hui who had been watching the show had a nefariously pleased smile, as if Zhao Hongyan’s current appearance made him feel comfort and pleasure.
Yang Chen squinted his eyes, walked up, bent down, and wanted to help Zhao Hongyan up.
Yu Guang whose humiliation turned into anger saw this, and immediately shouted, “Can everybody see this!? This is the ironclad evidence! This adulterous couple finally showed their true colors, and they still refuse to admit it!”
At this time, numerous employees of Yu Lei International felt that Zhao Hongyan was incredibly pitiful. Majority of them were women after all, who looked at matters with empathy and a big heart. This so-called chief editor of a major publishing house seemed to have an extreme and eccentric personality, everybody couldn’t be bothered about him anymore.
“Get up, it’s not worth it for you to be sitting on the ground for him, and he’s not worthy of your tears.” Yang Chen ignored Yu Guang’s hooting, he spoke softly to Zhao Hongyan.
Zhao Hongyan raised her head, it was the first time she appeared in front of Yang Chen without any makeup, her tear-stained face had less sexiness than before, but contained more purity.
Exchanging gazes with Yang Chen, from that pair of bright eyes, Zhao Hongyan finally saw something that was dignified, earnest, yet warm……
“Thank you.” Zhao Hongyan pulled on Yang Chen’s hand and stood up while wiping away her tears.
Yu Guang sneered repeatedly, “Good, good, good, a good silly couple, I knew from the very beginning that you’re a fickle vixen, and shouldn’t have married you! Luckily, it still isn’t too late, I will divorce you after this!”
It was at this point that an observing employee couldn’t help but say, “Mister, don’t you know that according to law, a divorce requires bilateral agreement? This isn’t the olden times where a husband can just write a letter of divorce to get rid of his wife, we’re now in a lawful society, alright?”
“That’s exactly right, who hasn’t made mistakes? As a person, you’re being too harsh, and have made such a ruckus.” Several ladies began to show support for Zhao Hongyan.
Yu Guang arrogantly swept a glance at them and said, “What do you people know!? When a woman who marries into our Yu Family makes a mistake, she has to get lost! Whether she wishes to or not, she has to leave!”
“That’s right, Ge, these people are just employees who have no intelligence, how can they compare with our family?” Yu Hui fanned the flames.
Yu Guang looked at his little brother with satisfaction, “Little Hui, it’s all thanks to you for being quick-witted this time, otherwise, who knows how much longer I will be cheated by this woman? That would be truly be letting down the ancestors of my Yu Family.”
“I’m not sure what this so-called Yu Family is, but I don’t think it’s something that’s worthy of me finding out.” Yang Chen shook his head and said.
“Our Yu Family isn’t a thing!” Yu Guang solemnly corrected him.
Yang Chen smiled, “That’s up to you, if you say it isn’t a thing, fine. However, I have to tell you something, I indeed have an affair with your wife.”
When these words were spoken, it wasn’t just Yu Guang who was stunned, all of the employees who were speaking up for Zhao Hongyan were also stunned. Yu Hui who knew the truth revealed a doubtful expression, while the most shocked was Zhao Hongyan herself!
“Yang… Yang Chen, you… what nonsense are you spouting!” Surprised, Zhao Hongyan’s cheeks blushed as she pulled on Yang Chen’s sleeve.
Without waiting for Zhao Hongyan to say anything more, Yang Chen suddenly stretched out his arm, pulled Zhao Hongyan’s soft body into his embrace, and skillfully held onto the woman’s hips with one arm. They were as close as they could be!
