    Chapter 1: Got a cheap wife!

    “Get married? I don’t even know what her horoscope is…”

    Xiao Zheng stood in the crowds, regrettably staring at the tall Bright Pearl tower under the blazing sun.

    What kind of century are we in? A guy still needs to be responsible for a one night stand? And be forced into marriage?

    July in Bright Pearl City was hot and humid. Xiao Zheng became sweaty all over after transferring to and from only two buses. His crumpled shirt tightly wrapped around his body like cling wrap making him extremely uncomfortable.

    Xiao Zheng’s throat had also become as dry as smoke and he hastily twisted off the lid of his mineral water, scarfing down half of it in one go. He pulled out a few newspapers soaked in his sweat, and after carefully checking for any job advertisements in the recruitment section, he sprinkled water over them. Then he crouched on his haunches, rubbing and polishing the footprints off his shoes that had resulted from the crowded buses.

    Bright Pearl Tower was also called the Empire State building. It had a hundred and eight levels and was a well-known center where all the elites in Bright Pearl City gathered. Residents here were proud to be working there and many businesses would rent a few levels in the tower just to show off their financial strength. It was Xiao Zheng’s first time going into the tower so he tried hard to maintain his appearance since he didn’t want any of those superior business elites to look down on him.

    “Eh, who are you?” shouted a middle-aged man in a security guard uniform as soon as Xiao Zheng arrived at the door, pushing him out, “This is not somewhere you can rest. Please leave immediately!”

    He looked at Xiao Zheng with disdain and his words rang out a note of contempt. He waved at Xiao Zheng impatiently as if he was chasing flies away. It seemed like there were people before Xiao Zheng who tried to sneak into the building for its air conditioners.

    “Resting?” Xiao Zheng fiercely glared at the stranger as he retaliated, “Have you got eyes? Do I look like someone with no shame?”

    The security guard mockingly said to him, “Then what are you doing here? Going to work? Discussing business? Acquiring a company?” He had seen many guys fishing in troubled waters before, but he had never encountered a guy this ridiculously shameless. He couldn’t help but say a few more words of ridicule.

    “I have an appointment,” Xiao Zheng replied as he pulled on his collar, trying to look as professional and successful as he could.

    “Oh, someone like you would have an appointment here? Tell me then, who do you have an appointment with?” The security guard continued sneering at him without showing any respect, “How about I call Lin Hua Yin and Shen Man Jun to come downstairs to have a drink and talk about life with you. Also, maybe you guys could even talk about the economy?”

    The security guard was referring to the two most powerful women in the Empire State building. One had a personality as cold as ice; no one could approach her easily. The other one was passionate like fire; crazily wild and charming. They satisfied every male worker in the building for their desire for women. People even fantasized about them on different days of the week.

    Xiao Zheng tilted his head, looking confused after hearing what the security guard had said.

    Would the girl who harassed me to death be one of them?

    Honestly speaking, Xiao Zheng was so hungover that his heart almost stopped beating. He didn’t even remember what the girl looked like after that night. The lights in the pub were so dim and blurry, it was almost impossible to see anything clearly.

    But it was this silly and confusing night which became Xiao Zheng’s first night out after returning back from overseas. He also ran into some sort of ethical trouble that he couldn’t escape from. He felt so wronged.

    “What the heck are you thinking!?” The security guard lowered his eyes at him in anger, as if he was the person in the right, in front of Xiao Zheng, “Get out of here now! Otherwise, I will be using force!” He struck a pose, ready to pull out the rubber stick that was hanging on his waist.

    “What is going on here?” A young woman in a silver OL suit showed up and interrupted their argument. Her footsteps were steady and swift. From just hearing them, one could tell how proud and mentally strong this woman was.

    The OL lady looked down on the both of them in contempt. Her face was ivory and clean as white jade. The lips under the bridge of her straight and delicate nose were as red as fire. Her firm and perky breasts were so erect, it looked like they were about to split her shirt open.

    “Sister Hong!” The security guard nodded and bowed towards her as he explained, “This guy was found lying and is now arguing with me about sneaking into the building. I’ll try to get him to go out now!”

    However, Sister Hong was as cold as ice. She didn’t say anything as she glanced over Xiao Zheng unemotionally.

    The person in front of her seemed unkempt and dispirited as if he hadn’t been sleeping properly for days. Both of his eyes were red and strained. His face looked so sickly and pale. He was wearing a cheap white digital watch around his wrist – a place where a man showed off their refined taste in fashion. He looked like a tired-looking broken-down man. Overall, his appearance seemed rather disappointing and did not suit his current surroundings of the Empire State building where elites gathered.

    “Are you Xiao Zheng?” Sister Hong cautiously asked.

    “Yes, I am,” Xiao Zheng drew back his attention from Sister Hong’s breasts and answered politely, “May I know your name, lady?”

    Was she the one I spent that night with?

    Her body was sexy and her face was good looking. Although it wasn’t up to the sexiness Xiao Zheng had imagined before, she was still pretty enough to brag about to others. Also, he didn’t need to worry about receiving too much attention from others.

    Yes. She seems like a decent partner.
    Xiao Zheng tried to convince himself to get over the difference in what he expected.

    “You don’t need to know, follow me,” Sister Hong turned around disappointingly and walked towards the lift in the center of the building. She seemed to have lost her patience, as her tone became cold as ice, making everyone in the vicinity freeze over.

    “Did you see it?”

    Xiao Zheng lit up a cigarette as he looked condescendingly and arrogantly at the security guard and said, “This is the person I had an appointment with. Pack up your stuff, you will get a heavy notice of dismissal tomorrow.” The security guard looked stoned. His world view, values of worth and philosophy on life had been ruined.

    Ding Dong~

    The lift stopped on the 88th floor, Sister Hong stepped out as if she didn’t want to spend another second more with Xiao Zheng in the lift.

    Xiao Zheng tucked his hands in his pockets and followed behind. He tried starting small talk with her to avoid the awkward silence, “Is this where you work? The place looks good. Can you earn about a hundred thousand dollars a month?”

    “I get paid yearly,” Sister Hong didn’t turn her head around but her hurried and messy steps revealed how reluctant she was in reciprocating.

    “How much yearly?” Seeing that she replied back, Xiao Zheng tried to sound casual even though he had been having trouble finding a job for a while, “At least 500 thousand right? The market is now shrinking, making it harder to find a job. It must be hard for a young girl like you to find a job without being discriminated by others.”

    “Two million,” Sister Hong answered coldly.

    “Two million?!” Xiao Zheng’s body shook in surprise.
    Sister Hong didn’t even need to turn around to guess how complex Xiao Zheng’s face looked. She found this a bit satisfying as if she had already taken a revenge on him.

    How dare you look down on women when you yourself look so unkempt?! What a ridiculously funny male chauvinist you are!

    While Sister Hong felt wonderful, a series of questions were immediately thrown at her from the back in anger and hate, “How dare you let me pay rent myself if you are already that rich! How could you do something like that? How are we going to live, if you are already stingy like this? I am so disappointed in you!”

    Sister Hong was so shocked at hearing what he just said that she almost fell over on the ground.

    Paying rent? Living together?

    Sister Hong felt so humiliated, and hopeless at the fact that her CEO who everyone respected and adored was about to end up being together with a weird man like him.

    “First of all, I would never like you even if I was blind,” Sister Hong turned around slowly, death glaring him as she spoke, “Secondly, the person you are going to meet is not me. It is our boss.”

    Chapter 2 - Contract Marriage!

    Xiao Zheng’s face looked stunned and surprised. But what came after was even more interesting. His complex expression disappeared just before Sister Hong had time to scorn him again. With a “Pa” sound, he lit up his cigarette, looking thankful as he spoke: “As I said before, I drank a little bit too much that night. I thought that I must have been so thirsty that I compromised and had sex with you. Luckily, it was just a false alarm.”

    Xiao Zheng pushed the door open and walked in before Sister Hong had time to respond. He turned around and left her a request, “Coffee without sugar, please. Thank you!” Xiao Zheng remembered that the sign on the door was labelled ‘Executive Office’, which meant that the person waiting in the room must have been Sister Hong’s big boss, the rich female millionaire… A high class and rich lady would have switched partners like how they switched their underwear, she was probably a bride for someone new every night! Why would she stick with me after sleeping together for only a night? Could it be that I happened to sell out my superior morals and soul at some point?

    The office was very big. On the left-hand side, there was a pile of big and solid bookshelves made of wood, on it were many well-known books and limited editions. Some were unique as the only one in the whole world. On the right, there was a small guest meeting area. The couch and the coffee table were arranged in an angle that created a very hostile atmosphere. There was neither an ashtray nor any magazines, and no bottles of water could be found. Adding the fact that the mat looked newer than those in other places of the office, Xiao Zheng concluded that this office owner had never greeted any guests before.

    In the meantime, on the only couch in the guest area, a cold looking but stunningly beautiful lady in uniform sat still. Her snowy, white beautiful face seemed to have ‘Keep Out’ written all over, and her pair of beautiful eyes were so hostile, everyone would have stayed thousands of miles away from her. Maybe it was because of her presence that even in such a spacious office, the temperature had still dropped so suddenly, contrasting with the hot temperature outside, like ice and fire.

    Xiao Zheng noticed a middle-aged guy around his 40s sitting next to this beautiful woman. His suit was well-ironed and his leather shoes were bright and shiny. Although he seemed very gentle, his face still displayed anxiousness and insecurities. Apparently, being in the same room with this ice queen was indeed very torturous for him, especially as he was standing next to her.


    The woman spoke coldly just before Xiao Zheng had walked into the guest area. Her tone sounded harsh and unquestionable with a sense of authority. Even the middle- aged guy by her side bowed at her immediately and then straightened his back up like a soldier, looking rather funny.

    On the other hand, Xiao Zheng steadily walked towards the woman and sat down directly opposite to her, looking very casual and calm. Between them was a metal coffee table less than 1 metre long, short enough to allow him to closely stare at the beautiful view in front of him.

    The woman was extraordinary beautiful.

    Her face seemed delicately crafted to perfection and was as soft and white as egg whites. Her red lips were plump and smooth like flower petals. Two lines of clean and white teeth were shinily bright at him. However, she looked icily arrogant and superior – even glancing at her would make most men feel self-conscious and very inferior about themselves.

    But Xiao Zheng automatically turned oblivious to her sharp and imposing manner. He eagerly examined her with care and then expressed a look of thankfulness. He sat upright and still, saying, “I finally found the reason why I went wild under the influence of alcohol that night. If I could turn back time, I guess I would have still gotten a room with you without any regrets, even if it was at an expensive hotel.”

    Her glass-like eyes suddenly turned from looking ice-cold to furious, as if she was about to spit fire over Xiao Zheng and burn him into ashes. However, the middle-aged guy who seemed to have been informed held so much respect and sympathy towards Xiao Zheng over the words he had said. Isn’t it better to offend anyone else other than the top ranked, successful career woman of the Empire State Building? The newest rich woman in the Bright Pearl province? Who doesn’t know that this new chairperson of the Xin-ao Group is known for her hatred of men! On the contrary, you seemed to have plucked up some courage and took advantage of this ice queen while she was drunk. My little brother, do you know how many strokes the Chinese symbol 死 (Si= death) has? (implying that Xiao Zheng was naively brave and was seeking for his own death).

    Lin Hua Yin felt her chest burning like fire and she almost mentally collapsed. It was through her strong willpower that had prevented any mental breakdowns. She clenched her teeth and said, “Lawyer Deng, give him all documents and the contract.”

    “Yes, Boss,” Lawyer Deng nodded without much confidence and pulled out the documents and contract from his case file that he had prepared the night before.

    “What documents?” Xiao Zheng tapped the ash off his cigarette swiftly and the ash flew everywhere on the carpet.

    This rude and impudent act had gotten on her nerves as she was extremely fastidious, but again, she forced herself to calm down. The fact that her cold and elegant face had a slight blush clearly showed that she was already on the edge of collapsing.

    “These are the personal details about our boss and your marriage contract,” Lawyer Deng explained patiently, “Considering that your situation is a bit special, this the contract does not follow the process of the civil administration office, but it still has legal effects within the contract period. Any party who breaches the terms of contract will have to bear the relevant legal responsibilities and burden of compensation.”

    Xiao Zheng nodded carelessly, expressing his understanding. He then grabbed the personal documents about this ice queen. Opening it, he started to speak, “Since I tackled such a difficult job by accepting your bossy requests, I will keep the promise for sure. There is no need to provide me all your personal details right? To be honest, I wouldn’t mind if you were a swindler or fraud because your face is still beautiful.”

    Despite saying that, he looked down at her personal details and continued, “Hua Yin Lin, Female… so you are Hua Yin Lin,” Xiao Zheng slightly curled up his lips and continued reading the details out loud, “27 years old…. Are you already 27? Surprisingly 2 years older than me. Yes. You graduated from Harvard and have an MBA degree. You must be a female scholar then. Chief executive officer of the Xin-ao Group. Hey, your family must be very rich if you could become CEO at the age of 27. You must have got this position by the back door, right?”

    Xiao Zheng criticised harshly at this new rich woman in the Bright Pearl City as he read over her personal details. His petty actions reflected his retaliation to the rich. Lin Hua Yin’s face flickered like a light, turning white and green in response to Xiao Zheng’s comments and clenched her fists tightly. She was still restraining herself even though it looked like that she was going to run out of breath anytime soon. She had to restrain herself because Xiao Zheng hadn’t to sign the contract and her marriage contract could not be officially valid yet.

    “Cough.” Lawyer Deng sensed that her anger was rising so he cleared his voice and began to speak, “Mr Xiao, please read over the marriage agreement. If there is no problem, it will become valid once you sign it.”

    “Yes, I would not want to waste everyone’s precious time,” Xiao Zheng grabbed the marriage agreement and looked over it dismissively before he proposed any objections, “I can accept most of the terms and agreements but, I think one of them requires more consideration.”

    Lawyer Deng’s eyes flickered, trying to guess what kind of drama this young lad was going to come out with. He asked hesitantly, “Xiao Sir, which one do you think is inappropriate?” Xiao Zheng took a suck at his cigarette and continued in an earnest manner, “Number 9, during the negotiation period, although both parties have husband and wife titles respectively, no duty as a married couple needs to be fulfilled. I think this one is a bit cruel.”

    “What kind of problems does this one have?” Lawyer Deng curled his lips, feeling that something might have gone terribly wrong.

    “Lawyer Deng, you are experienced in this area, thus, I believe you will understand my needs.” Xiao Zheng looked serious as he spoke, “For a young and active guy like me, occasionally, we call out someone for a drink, bragging and boasting about stuff as well as telling some dirty jokes. When our emotions are high, we need to find a way to quench my thirst for sex right? But now you have the nerve to ask me to accept the contract, using moral principles to restrict my behaviour while at the same time prohibiting me from any sexual acts as a married couple… Isn’t it clear that you are trying to make me burst?”

    “Pa!” Lin Hua Yin could not stand it anymore. She quickly pulled out the cutting knife. Her body, trembling, as she pointed the knife at Xiao Zheng and roared like an angry female lion, “If you dare to say anything more ridiculous, I will kill both of us right now!”
