I Was Born In The Underworld - Chapter 23
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
That was the nickname of Zhao Yaya’s boyfriend.
They were getting married soon, and of course … this is just a promise from Lai San.
They were just like those melodramas, where they acted like good girls love bad boys.
Lai San is the well-known local ruffian in the neighborhood.
When Zhao Yaya had just graduated and joined the society, she was deceived by his sweet talk and became his girlfriend.
At first, Zhao Yaya thought San Lai was an imposing guy.
He was always with a gang of friends, with just a phone call, there comes a dozen of people when there is a fight.
But later on, Zhao Yaya realized that Lai San was a parasite.
He did not have a job, and only fooling around with his gang of friends every day, bullying those honest people by collecting protection fees from them to make a living.
Lai San had no income.
The only thing he owned was the house left by his parents, who died of anger.
Therefore, Lai San was in one of the few holdout units of the apartment left behind, who wanted to extort more compensation from the government, where the ruffians are good at this.
However, Lai San did not have much money and have not received the demolition fund, so he can only borrow money from people around him and promised to return to them, once he received the demolition fund.
He owned a lot of money, and no one wanted to lend him anymore.
Lai San got flustered and exasperated and became worst. He took Zhao Yaya’s hard earn money whenever he had no money. If she dared to have any complaint, she would be beaten.
Zhao Yaya wanted to break up with San Lai.
But every time she mentioned it, Lai San would beat her until black and blue.
The bruises all over Zhao Yaya’s body were all caused by Lai San.
There was once he even broke her arm and was admitted to the hospital with a plaster cast.
After that, Lai San made it clear, as if Zhao Yaya dared to mention breaking up with him again, he would beat her to death; if she dared to report to the police or anything else, he would kill her entire family!!
That sounded absurd.
But, among those grassroots, those muddle-headed ruffians had similar kinds of stories.
“You went out to find something to eat, yet you only ended up with these two packets of snacks back, they were far from enough for me.”
In the twinkling of an eye, Lai San had eaten up a packet of the beef jerky, and opened the other packet, and began to eat up.
He did not plan to leave any bit for Zhao Yaya.
The dark disaster, the end of the world had come.
Lai San did not dare to be out, because he knew there were those ferocious, terrifying, and weird-looking monsters outside.
He beat Zhao Yaya and forced her to go out to scavenge for food. But he was not satisfied with the food she found and showed his anger.
Zhao Yaya could not control herself anymore.
“Waa … Waa … Waa …”
She felt aggrieved and squatted at the corner and burst into tears.
Lai San’s eyebrow raised, and he walked to the side of Zhao Yaya and gave her a big slap on her face.
“Cry, Cry, Cry.”
“What the hell are you crying? Feeling aggrieved?”
“Just two packets of beef jerky, what so precious about that? I didn’t say to let you eat.”
As if Lai San showed his mercy, and threw that packet of almost-finished beef jerky to the side of Zhao Yaya’s feet, which seemed to have been his gift to her.”
Zhao Yaya held back her tears and did not dare to make a sound after being slapped.
She picked up the beef jerky on the ground and took out a piece of it, then put it into her mouth with her trembling hand, as it tasted sour, sweet, bitter, and spicy.
How terrified was the world beyond that front door?
Lai San did not dare to go out of his house but forced her to go outside instead.
How terrifying was the unknown world, full of monsters outside?
She held back her grievance.
She held back her fear.
She walked out of the door, trembling, carefully seeking amid feeling loss. How cruel it was to a girl.
It was fortunate that she met Gu Fan.
She tried her very best and completely drained, and she let go of her dignity.
She finally won these two packets of beef jerky, which had been Zhao Yaya’s limit, where she almost traded her life for it.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
But they were squandered by Lai San.
Zhao Yaya ate the last few pieces of the beef jerky in the packet, as they tasted so bitter.
“Tell me, how did you get this beef jerky?”
“Go and get something to eat again later.”
Lai San said casually as if the beef jerky was just there and could be taken to eat freely.
Go and get some more?
It was easy to be said, but in fact, the price has to pay was far beyond what an ordinary person would have imagined.
Zhao Yaya shook her head: “No more, that man wouldn’t give any food for today anymore. He asked me to hide upstairs and not to come out.”
After hearing this, Lai San was startled and his expression became vicious.
“Oh, it’s someone else who gave it to you.”
“No wonder you have been out for such a long time. Did you guys did something fishy??”
Lai San walked to Zhao Yaya, and grabbed hold of her throat, and asked her forcefully.
Zhao Yaya coughed in pain and shook her hands: “No, we didn’t do anything, I was just helping him moving things …”
Lai San slapped Zhao Yaya’s face.
“How could someone be so kind-hearted to give you food by just moving things?”
“Bitch, I knew you are dishonest, you are so unworthy, where you helped him to work for such long hours, and yet you were only given with two packets of beef jerky??”
Lai San said fiercely.
He was surrounded by such a world, where he used such perspective to perceive others.
Zhao Yaya had been away for almost the whole morning but had also been given food. However, in the eyes of Lai San, Zhao Yaya must be filthy, it was useless even if she tried to explain.
Zhao Yaya clutching her face and tears gushing down from her eyes.
“I didn’t, I didn’t …”
She can only explain powerlessly, but the fact was, it did not matter anymore.
Lai San’s eyes showed.
He had a plan in mind, and more vicious eyes were gradually revealed.
“I can’t just leave it like that, after what he did to my woman.”
“You go down and call him up. I have to give him a black eye.”
Lai San forced Zhao Yaya to call Gu Fan up!!
Zhao Yaya was shocked to call that indifferent man up, who knows what would happen.
That lunatic who could kill monsters.
“No, No, No.”
“I can’t call him up, he is not an ordinary guy.” Zhao Yaya
Lai San said fiercely: “He is not an ordinary guy??”
“I’m not an ordinary person too. Who am I afraid of in this area??”
“You go and call him up, while I get my weapon ready. We are going to have him to give everything he’s hiding out.”
Lai San had finally revealed his main intention.
Zhao Yaya was in complete despair, and Lai San had never cared about whether she was being insulted in the first place.
He only thought about wanting more to eat.
He was only trying to cheat Gu Fan up, then blackmailed him and ripped all his food.
This man … did not even care for himself.
Zhao Yaya was full of despair and was deeply disappointed with Lai San.
“I called you to go, you go.”
“Don’t you give me all sorts of nonsense?”
“Heh, don’t worry. I will share you some, once I get hold of his things.”
Lai San took out his weapon from the bottom of the bed. It was a sharp knife, which he usually used to threaten people in fights.
“Why are you still dazing here?”
“Got fooled by that guy?”
“Get out of here and get him to me. Don’t you tell me, you got in love with him after what had happened to both of you.”
Lai San placed the edge of the sharp knife against Zhao Yaya’s face, his swearing got even stronger, he had used to oppressively bullying Zhao Yaya all year long.
No matter how much bullying, Zhao Yaya would not go against him.
Zhao Yaya was being aggrieved and insulted.
After a long hesitation, she finally opened the door and went downstairs.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
