Huo Yao instantly looked outraged when she heard the lies shooting out of the old man’s mouth.
Why did she bother to help him in the first place?
She had not yet succeeded in earning that $500 000 for the advertisement, but here she was, on her way to giving some money away to a scammer.
“We are on the campus, so there is CCTV surveillance. It’s pointless for you to try and swindle me!” said Huo Yao as she gritted her teeth.
The old man opened his eyes before muttering. “Oh, I’m so giddy… I feel awful… How can you shirk responsibility after pushing me?”
Huo Yao was flabbergasted.
Although there were very few students walking around the campus at this hour, some of them had witnessed this scene.
When they saw Huo Yao helping a rather old man who was claiming to be unwell, they did not dare to get involved.
But a student pulled out his phone and called an ambulance.
Huo Yao was capable of wresting free from his hold, but she did not want to forcibly pull her hand away, lest she actually hurt him. Hence, Huo Yao became a victim of blackmail without warning as the old man dragged her along in the ambulance, when it arrived.
Even while he was getting examined, the old man kept holding onto her.
He held onto her out of fear that she would take off.
Inside the hospital ward after the examination.
Huo Yao expressionlessly looked at the old man sitting on the bed. The corner of her shirt remained in his grasp.
“I want some fruit. Go and get me some,” demanded the old man.
“I don’t have any money, so don’t even think about it!” Huo Yao sounded cold.
“How can you act so arrogantly after you hurt me? You have no respect for the elderly,” sneered the old man as he picked on her.
“Excuse me, but I haven’t met a con man as shameless as you, either,” retorted Huo Yao.
A look of guilt flashed in his eyes. However, he continued ranting unreasonably. “I don’t care. Since you hurt me, you have to take care of me.”
He paused before he added. “Or else, I will create a scene at your school every day.”
“Whatever!” Huo Yao shrugged nonchalantly before she stood up and yanked the corner of her shirt from the old man’s hand, effortlessly.
The old man sat up straight and pursed his lips. He looked at Huo Yao with injured eyes. “Are you trying to run away?”
Huo Yao glanced at him before she replied expressionlessly. “Uh huh.”
After straightening her shirt, she continued. “I sent you to the hospital out of goodwill. Don’t presume that you can extract any sort of compensation out of me.”
Huo Yao pulled out her phone and tapped on the keypad. She clung to the final remnants of her patience and said, “Give me your family member’s number.”
The old man suddenly went quiet. He quickly lay down on the bed and pulled the blanket over before he turned his back towards Huo Yao.
“Go. Just leave me to fend for myself,” said the old man in a stifled and particularly pitiful tone.
Huo Yao pressed her forehead. In the past, she would have dumped the old man eons ago, considering her temper. Then, why was she still letting him blackmail her?
Huo Yao raised her hand to check her watch before she glanced at him and said, “Rest well. I have to get back to class.”
She turned to head out of the hospital ward.
The door clicked shut before long.
Was she gone?
The old man opened his eyes immediately. After some time, he failed to hear any sound outside the door. He swiftly pulled off the blanket and sat up nimbly.
If Huo Yao were around, she would have caught sight of the old man looking rather strong and fit for his age.
