Chapter 172 Remember to Pay Me Back
After getting out of the Headquarters, Shen Yan asked the public relations manager to deal with the reporters, and let Liu Sijie block the entrance of the old woman's community. Then he went with Xia Yu to the home of the old woman's daughter.
"When did you find her daughter?" When they were walking out of the hospital, Shen Yan had told her that he was still looking for her. And he had already found her in such a short while, he was pretty efficient.
"When we were in the meeting, after this incident, Little Qiang would probably be depressed for a few more days." Shen Yan said as he drove.
"What's wrong?" Shen Qiang was already very gloomy, could there be something even more depressing than this? Xia Yu was startled.
"The old woman he's been taking care of was a habitual thief when she was young. Her daughter invited her to live together when she became old, hoping to be able to look after her. However, her old habits never changed, not only didn't her daughter's persuasion work, but her daughter also discovered that she was teaching her grandson how to steal. They had a fight, and her daughter forced her to stop stealing. She couldn't stand being controlled and moved out to live on her own."When the people of Shen Yan found the old woman's daughter, she almost fainted on the spot.
She had also seen the news on the television and on the internet. She also felt that her mother was in trouble and was looking for her mother everywhere. However, she couldn't reach her mother on the phone, and she didn't know where she was.
"No wonder that day when we asked the woman in the supermarket, she would say that." Xia Yu was also somewhat emotional, but the cooperation of the old woman's daughter saved them a lot of trouble, "It's naturally good that her daughter is willing to persuade her."
"Our people have already communicated with her daughter. They are preparing to call the old woman through media first, hoping that she can come back by herself. If things don't go well, we will have to get the police involved." There were a few benefits in having her relatives call her through media. They could persuade her back, and they could also let the citizens know that she was being used by others.
In that way, the matter of the old people being discriminated against would become revenge against Tengfei. The old granny was only a chess piece being used by others, and the sympathy of the citizens would lean to Tengfei.
"Good idea, in this way, we can restore the customer's confidence in us in the shortest time possible." Xia Yu nodded her head repeatedly.
When they arrived at the home of the old woman's daughter, the reporters were already interviewing her daughter. In front of the camera, her daughter's tears were pouring down as she called to her mother, "Mom, where have you been these past few days? We were all worried about you. Little Jun cried a lot, trying to find his grandma, he even fell down and broke his head."
Little Jun also rushed over to his mother's side, "Grandma, I missed you so much, come back. To find you, Daddy hasn't worked for a few days. If he doesn't work, Little Jun doesn't have tuition fees. "
When the reporter, who was interviewing the old woman, saw the news, he immediately showed it to her. "Grandma, look, is this your family?"
Seeing her daughter and grandson in front of the camera, the old woman became excited, "Little Jun, my good grandson, it's not that grandma doesn't want to come back, but your parents don't like grandma, why would I come back?"
Little Jun cried and said, "Grandma, my mom just doesn't want you to continue stealing. It's not that she doesn't like you, you know? Ever since you left, my mother has cried so much, and she even dreamed of you. "
The old woman also began to cry, "Really? My good grandson, is that true? "
Little Jun wiped his tears and continued, "Grandma, I am not lying. My mom really misses you so much. And the teacher also taught us that stealing is shameful, we have to rely on hard work to earn money, so stop stealing things, okay? "
The old woman was already sobbing. "Little Jun, I don't want to either, it's just that I can't change the old habits. But, for my good grandson, I'll definitely change!"
Little Jun's immediately smiled. He turned around to his mother happily and said, "Mom, Grandma said she won't steal things anymore. Can we take Grandma back to live with us?"
The old woman's daughter repeatedly nodded, wiping her tears as she said, "Mom, where are you now, I will come over with Little Jun to pick you up."
Raising her head and looking around, the old woman was stunned for a while before she said, "I don't know where I am either."
"Then how did you get there?" The old woman's daughter was getting anxious.
"I was walking in the street when a few young people came and asked me if I wanted to do a profitable business. I followed them when I heard that I could earn money, but in the end, they locked me up and told me to say what they told me. I want to go home, they don't …"
At this point, a man's voice came on the other side of the phone, "Damn old thing, what nonsense are you spouting …"
After that, the old woman's signal disappeared.
"Mom …" The old woman's daughter called a few times, but there was no reply. She quickly stood up and rushed out. As she ran, she took out her cell phone to call the police.
"Mom, I am going with you!" Little Jun ran out after her.
The reporters also followed up on the news.
It's a live report, and soon, even the board members in the meeting room of the Shen's had seen it. One of the board members took out his phone and waved it around in front of everyone, "The matter of Tengfei discriminating against the elderly has new progress. That old woman has been placed under house arrest, and her daughter has already called the police."
"Is that true? They are going too far." When the other board members heard this, they all took out their phones.
That's definitely true. The police had already tracked to a community according to the video chat of the old woman and her daughter and grandson just now.
Police? The first Madame's face suddenly turned ugly. She sneaked a peek at Shen Mo and saw that he was also looking at his phone.
That group of idiots, how could they let the old woman contact her family? No, they had to move immediately.
The first Madame stood up and walked out.
"Where are you going?" Old Madame had been paying attention to First Madame for a long time, so when she saw that she was about to leave, she coldly asked.
First Madame was shocked, probably because she was afraid, she blinked her eyes, "I need to go to the bathroom!"
Old Madame did not ask anymore. The first Madame rushed into the bathroom and took out her phone to make a call.
Unfortunately, nobody answered the call. She tried to call again, but there was still no response. First Madame was so anxious that she almost smashed her phone.
Actually, she couldn't blame those people. When they saw that something was wrong, they quickly drove away from the reporters and prepared to move the grandma to a secluded place and let her go. In this way, nobody would find out.
Probably because they were in too much of a hurry to see the road, they hit a car entering the community. The people holding the old woman hostage had a guilty conscience, and they didn't dare to tangle with the owner of the car too much. So they voluntarily gave in and wanted just to pay the owner and end it. However, the owner of the vehicle became rude and unreasonable, he insisted that the car was newly bought and wouldn't let them go.
The people who kidnapped the old woman weren't idiots. His car was in such a bad condition that he could even just scrap it, how could he say it's newly bought.
If it was in a normal situation, they would have already dragged the owner of the car over and beat him up. However, they were in a hurry today, so they gave him a few more money so that he could let them go.
Yet the owner of the car was still unsatisfied, he even started to curse them. This time, the group of people that held the old woman hostage was lit up with anger. They got out of the car and were about to beat him up.
The owner of the car was, after all, a resident of the community, so this group of people was quickly surrounded by the residents of the community.
The security guards of the residential complex immediately called the police when they saw that something had gone wrong.
When this group of people found out that something terrible was going to happen, they hurriedly ran away. It was unknown if their luck was too bad or what, but it was as if the police was waiting at the entrance. As soon as they broke out of the encirclement, the police arrived at their side.
"Comrade Police, these people tricked me and locked me up. They didn't let me go home, so they even threatened me. I want to go home, I want to see my grandson." As soon as the grandma saw the police, she fell to her knees.
The police quickly helped the old woman up, turned around and said to the group, "You're quite daring, you want to run after hitting somebody's car, and you even dared to illegally imprison an old woman, bring them back!"
After everything was reported by the reporters, the First Madame loosened her grip, and the phone dropped onto the ground.
Shen Qiang had also seen this scene at the hospital, and he really hadn't thought that it would turn out like this. Knowing that Xia Yu had come over to bring food to him, he asked with suspicion, "Is that old woman really a habitual thief?"
When the woman in the supermarket said it the other day, he didn't believe her and almost fell out with her. Thinking about it, Shen Qiang felt embarrassed.
"Didn't you see the news already? The old woman has admitted it herself, why are you asking me? " Xia Yu took out all the food and placed them in front of him.
That was true. Why would he have any doubt if the old woman had admitted it herself?
Shen Qiang raised his head and looked at Xia Yu. He scratched his head and said apologetically: "Sis, there's something I need to tell you, but don't blame me."
"What is it?" Xia Yu had already prepared the food for him.
"It was just a period ago, every time the old woman came to collect trash, the money in my wallet would always be short by a few hundred. I thought you took the money because Second Brother deducted your salary for your debt, and you didn't have enough money left." Saying that Shen Qiang secretly raised his head to look at Xia Yu, wanting to see her reaction.
Xia Yu pointed at her own nose, "Little Qiang, so you've been suspecting that I have been stealing your money all along?"
Shen Qiang smiled apologetically, "Sis, I swear, I never thought that way. It's just for emergency use, just for emergency use, hey hey!"
Hey hey the hell, Xia Yu grabbed his pillow and hit him twice, then sat down at the side.
"Sis, how about we eat together?"Xia Yu had brought so much, he wouldn't be able to finish it all by himself.
Xia Yu's eyes stared straight at a particular place, her lazy voice continued: "Don't mess with me, I don't even have the strength to roll my eyes right now."
She was indeed exhausted dealing with the matter of the old woman these days. Shen Qiang said. "Alright, our beautiful and kind Sister Xia has worked too hard, I've set up all the dishes for you. If you are too tired to use the chopsticks by yourself, I'll feed you."
Xia Yu could not help but laugh. Her body trembled as if she was a fish that had been fished ashore for a while, unable to even move.
Shen Qiang took the food to her nose and let her smell them again and again. Xia Yu sat up suddenly and looked for her chopsticks immediately: "No way, I'm going to starve to death."
Seeing her like that, Shen Qiang couldn't help but sigh, "It's all my fault, affecting all of you."
Xia Yu picked up some noodles with her chopsticks and threw another skinned fried prawn into her mouth, and her mouth was full to the brim. After she swallowed the food, she casually replied, "It's good that you have realized this. Remember to pay me back in the future, got it?"
