Chapter 42: Intellectual Disability

Feng Xiao watched Su Hua’s back with some helplessness.

While others started companies and businesses aiming to make money, his wife seemed to be heading in the opposite direction—towards losing money.

However, recently, Su Hua had been keeping things from him, and he could sense it.

As long as she didn’t leave him, he would support whatever she did.

Su Hua arrived at the agreed-upon location, a private room. Looking at the middle-aged man across from her, she was somewhat surprised.

The man before her was probably in his forties, with a stern look and an aura of authority. When he saw Su Hua, a hint of disappointment flashed in his eyes involuntarily.

“Are you Miss Qin?” he asked.

Su Hua nodded. “Sir, please introduce yourself.”

Feng Zixing frowned disapprovingly; the girl in front of him was quite impolite.

“I heard you were inquiring about that piece of jade, Miss Qin. Frankly, with your attitude, it’s difficult for me to agree to sell the jade to you.”

“I’m not interested in buying now,” the man in front of her, who bore a resemblance to Feng Xiao, had Su Hua already figured out. If she wasn’t mistaken, he was either Feng Xiao’s father or a close relative.

Feng Zixing looked at Su Hua with a domineering presence and said, “Miss Qin, what do you mean by this? Are you playing games with me?”

“Mr. Feng,” Su Hua called out.

“Originally, I had a favor to ask, but after meeting you, I realized that you also have a favor to ask of someone.”

“You do know my son, don’t you?” Feng Zixing stood up excitedly and said, “Tell me quickly, where is he?”

Su Hua leisurely leaned back in her chair, displaying elegance. She picked up the coffee in front of her and took a sip, seemingly completely ignoring the impatient Feng Zixing.

She had mentioned before that whether Feng Xiao acknowledged him was his business.

“Mr. Feng, now you’re the one seeking help. Please, try to be more polite.”

“You just want money, right? I’ve seen many girls like you. Name your price.” Feng Zixing sat down, regaining his earlier authoritative demeanor.

EXM? Are you negotiating money with a squandering system? This can’t be tolerated! Host, refute him!” De’er cried out in the system space.

(T/N:exm, an Internet buzzword, is the abbreviation of “excuse me.”)

Su Hua paid no attention to De’er, extending a finger and saying, “One hundred million.”

“You’re asking for an exorbitant amount.”

Su Hua’s words confirmed to Feng Zixing that this girl indeed had ulterior motives. “One million.”

Su Hua looked at him disdainfully and said, “So, in your heart, information about your son is only worth one million.”

“Even if you don’t say, I can investigate it myself.”

She had already lost when she met him. He could easily investigate things around her to find information about his son.

One million was just to avoid unnecessary trouble.

“It seems our negotiations end here today.” Su Hua took out a hundred yuan and placed it on the table. “I’ll treat you to coffee.”

After Su Hua left, Feng Zixing immediately sent someone to investigate her. Simultaneously, Su Hua’s first action after leaving was to investigate Feng Zixing.

Soon, Feng Zixing’s information appeared before Su Hua, and Su Hua’s information also appeared on Feng Zixing’s desk.

Feng Zixing, from the Feng family, one of the four major families in the capital, had power and influence. Feng Zixing was the next head of the family. The current Mrs. Feng was not Feng Xiao’s biological mother. Feng Xiao’s accidental disappearance was also deliberate and orchestrated by this stepmother, who abandoned Feng Xiao for the family’s wealth.

The reason was, naturally, for the family fortune.

As for other information about the ancestors of the Feng family for eighteen generations, Su Hua ignored it directly.

Feng Zixing’s search for his son was probably not driven by some supposed family affection but because the son born to Mrs. Feng was intellectually disabled—not an insult, but an actual intellectual disability.

Intellectual disability, also known as mental retardation, or a “fool,”
