Pampered to Heaven by A Rich Husband - 1.1
What is it like to wake up into a rich family? Probably, it is… something that the poor can’t imagine.
—By Cheng Youran
“Is she still planning to continue the hunger strike?”
The man sat on the long table, his cuffs rolled up to the sleeves of his shirt, revealing his strong arms. A hint of mockery appeared on his incredibly handsome face, “Sometimes I really don’t know what’s in her mind.”
The maid who waited on the side bowed her head and defended, “Sir, Madam might be feeling unwell. I’ll go and call her again.”
She hurriedly went upstairs.
Speaking of the madam of this family, there was only one word to describe her – miserable! She was originally a third-rate actor in the entertainment industry, who could easily be stepped on by anyone. After getting married into a wealthy family, she was finally able to breathe, but she always compared herself to others, often making herself angry.
The maid shook her head regretfully, went upstairs, and knocked on the door of the room, “Madam, may I come in?”
Cheng Youran opened her eyes and found herself lying on a silk bed. The room was luxurious and had the size of a living room.
There was a private swimming pool beside the floor-to-ceiling window. The clear and crystalline water of the pool gave off a gleaming reflection whenever sunshine illuminated on it.
“Madam, it’s me.”
The maid came in with a look of concern and said, “Once the Master heard that you are having a hunger strike, he immediately came back. It shows that he still has feelings for you in his heart. How about you come down and eat together with him? ”
Looking at the maid’s face, Cheng Youran’s mind was suddenly filled with many memories that did not belong to her. It turned out that she had transmigrated into a world based on a rich and sweet pampering kind of novel and became a hard-working female cannon fodder to set off the heroine.
The female protagonist Gu Yao was born in a poor family like her. They were classmates since childhood. Both of them were mixed in the entertainment industry and married into rich families one after the other. They were often compared to each other.
There was a saying called “South Lu, North Li”, referring to the two top giants in China, the Lu family, and the Li family, both of which started in real estate with deep roots in the south and north respectively.
Not only did Gu Yao become the Film Empress at a young age, but the male protagonist also had a deep affection for her. After marrying into Li’s family, the husband and wife were affectionate, and no one in the entertainment circle could stop themselves from envying her.
However, Cheng Youran was a person who had nothing except beauty. After having managed to get married into the Lu family desperately, her parents-in-law didn’t like her, and it was considered good enough that her husband didn’t hate her. However, there was Gu Yao as a comparison. Within a few years of marrying into a wealthy family, Cheng Youran changed from a lively and bright person to a taciturn person.
Many reporters had taken pictures of her with laughter in front of others while shedding tears behind them. Whenever her name was mentioned, others would say “miserable”.
“Okay, I’ll go downstairs to eat right away.”
She couldn’t eat without going downstairs. Her stomach was grumbling with hunger, and her legs trembled when she got out of bed.
Let’s just take a recent example, Gu Yao and her birthday was on the same day. The male lead gave Gu Yao an 18 million cruise ship while her husband Lu Zixiao, a workaholic, had simply forgotten about her birthday. He was busy going to UK to purchase a carbon fiber company. However, he was caught by the media saying that he went to UK to date his lover. The original owner was so upset that she went on a hunger strike.
And that’s when she transmigrated.
—It’s the day when Lu Zixiao proposed for a divorce.
She sighed. Is there anything worse than getting divorced just after entering a rich family?
She walked downstairs with the support of handrails at the stairs. She couldn’t help from clicking her tongue. The floors of the stairs were all made of marble, and the pictures hanging on the wall were probably the original Picasso’s artworks. The air here just screamed money.
“Do you think a hunger strike can threaten me?” At the long dining table, the man slowly sliced a piece of Wagyu beef, “Cheng Youran, if I really want to cheat, do you think you can stop it?”
Cheng Youran turned towards the man. The man had a graceful bearing and an especially handsome appearance even with raised eyebrows, and slight wrinkles at the outer corner of his eyes not only did not reduce his appearance value, but they also added the charm of a mature man.
Seeing his face, Cheng Youran knew why gossip magazines were keen to fabricate media gossip about him. It was because who would ever believe that there were no other women around him with his appearance? Even the original owner did not believe it.
He is her husband Lu Zixiao.
—The biggest villain in the original book.
“Unfortunately, I don’t like being threatened.” The man waved, and the secretary next to him immediately handed over a document, “Sign it.”
Cheng Youran walked over, took a piece of apple pie with one hand, and took over the documents with the other. It was a thick divorce agreement. She looked at the thousands of clauses. Her eyes went blank, and her head also felt like it increased in size.
Suddenly she saw a string of numbers and counted them at random. One, ten, hundred, thousand, million…billion, one billion, she looked up in disbelief!
“Madam, it is useless trying to argue.” The secretary raised his glasses, “Based on the agreement you signed before marriage, it stated that you would only get 1.5 billion yuan when divorced.”
Can only be given …… 1.5 billion yuan.
Cheng Youran couldn’t hear the words popping out of the secretary’s mouth anymore, her mind was full of 1.5 billion!
In the face of 1.5 billion, do other things matter? Do I still need to listen?
Other things are insignificant! No need to listen!
Gao Qiao glanced at Cheng Youran with sympathy. It was normal, she wanted to go on a hunger strike to win sympathy and gain President Lu’s heart, but she didn’t expect that President Lu would not eat this trick at all. The result that was waiting for her was a divorce agreement.
Lu Zixiao was still sipping borscht with his expressionless face. He’d had enough of Cheng Youran. She might be depressed, but what does it have to do with him? He had allowed her to be Mrs. Lu for five years.
“Sign! Sign! Sign! Necessary to sign!”
Cheng Youran suppressed her excitement, and she asked the secretary, “Where’s the pen? Quickly give it to me.”
Did he hear that right?!
