Chapter 1534: Making His Att.i.tude Clear
Having prepared himself for the worst, when Daddy Bai heard Winston’s answer he merely sighed deeply.
The Chinese were more or less conservative. But since her daughter had already done this, Daddy Bai could only try to accept this… son-in-law. That was if he was sincere.
Daddy Bai stared straight ahead and asked, “What business do you do?”
Bai Qingqing’s heart skipped a beat, and she immediately answered on his behalf, “He does buying and selling.”
Daddy Bai shot a cold sideways glance at her and then looked towards Winston.
Winston said, “I’m in the import and export business. Forgive me for not being able to disclose the details.”
Bai Qingqing exhaled, feeling very satisfied with his reply.
Daddy Bai didn’t ask further, either. He sized up Winston’s attire and said, “My daughter said that you two are dating with the aim of marrying eventually. I want to know your thoughts.”
Winston’s breathing tightened. He glanced at Bai Qingqing again and said agitatedly, “So long as she’s willing, I’m prepared to get married at any time.”
A tad surprised, Daddy Bai rapped his fingers on the steering wheel. “Honestly speaking, I don’t believe your words. You and my daughter are from two different worlds. She’s merely a high school student, whereas you’re already a working person. How am I to believe that you’re sincere towards her, and not just toying with her feelings?”
Bai Qingqing thought:
Truth, Daddy. Winston and I are indeed from two different worlds.
Winston pursed his lips helplessly and said, “I can give you all my money. Please consent to let me be with Qingqing.”
Daddy Bai paused, suddenly feeling that this triad boss was subservient in front of him.
He believed in the other party’s abilities, that it wouldn’t be difficult for him to get his hands on any kind of girl if he so desired. Even if he was particularly mesmerized with his daughter, he needn’t be so subservient.
From the looks of it, he did seem serious. Moreover, it did appear that he would marry no one other than Qingqing.
Daddy Bai’s heart softened momentarily, and he smiled politely and said, “Why would you do that? I’m not a father who sells his daughter. If you’re really sincere, just give the money to Qingqing.”
Winston instantly retrieved a wallet from his pocket and was about to hand it to Bai Qingqing, before something suddenly occurred to him. He took out his phone and made a call.
“Bring me the money in my safety deposit box. The address is…” As he spoke, Winston looked at Daddy Bai and asked, “Where are we heading?”
Shocked, Daddy Bai said dazedly, “Going home.”
Hence, Winston read the address of Bai Qingqing’s home with great familiarity.
Daddy Bai: “…”
However, the person on the other end seemed to disagree strongly. Winston’s countenance darkened and he said sternly. “Immediately. You know my temper.”
With that, he hung up the call and resumed a calm expression.
Only then did Bai Qingqing react. She pounded a fist on his shoulder. “What are you doing? I don’t want money, either. Quickly call back and ask that person not to come over.”
Winston patted the back of his mate’s hand and, for the first time, didn’t heed her words.
Daddy Bai didn’t object to it and merely calmly observed his reaction.
The moment they got home, Winston’s number one underling Lanky pressed the Bai residence’s doorbell with a black travel bag on his back.
Winston opened the door and, after taking the travel bag, prepared to close the door.
Lanky hurriedly spoke up before he did so. “Brother Tiger, this money is used for buying supplies. If you use it now, what are we using to pay for the next batch of goods?”
“No hurry. We can talk about it later.” Winston closed the door and placed the bag on the dining table.
Bai Qingqing ran over and opened the bag. Inside she saw stacks after stacks of red notes. Every stack contained ten thousand yuan. One could roughly see that the bag contained hundreds of thousands of yuan.
Bai Qingqing was shocked. To think Winston had earned so much money outside. After the shock pa.s.sed, she rolled her eyes at him.
Nowadays, who carried money this way? Had he any idea it made him look like a country b.u.mpkin?
