Read The Amazing Son in Law by Lord Leaf Chapter 1059 – Laying on the ground weakly, William stared at the taxi driver who walked towards him with his fearsome look. His arrogant expression when he threatened the driver had long diminished.
He grimaced in despair and pleaded, “Boss, I just went bankrupt, I am penniless and I have a lot of debts! And I was beaten up too! Please, I really have no money to pay you, please let me go!”
The driver growled furiously, “Do you think you’re the only one with a debt?! Do you think I would still drive a taxi if I were rich? Do you think that forty-five dollars is easy money? It can fill my stomach for two days, for f**k’s sake! Hurry up and pay me!”
William wailed in desperation, “Boss, I really have no money nor any valuables on me. Please have mercy and let me go!”
“Argh, drop the act! I’ll call the police if you don’t pay up!”
William struggled to get on his knees and cried, “Boss, I really don’t have any money even if you want to k**l me right now! Please, I beg you, please let me go! Is it not enough that I’m bowing to you? Please see me as your son who bows his head to you during Christmas! Like my father, you still have to give me a present, don’t you?”
The driver trembled with anger, shocking to see such a shameless person. “You…why are you so shameless? Do you have no parents? What will your parents feel if they know you bow your head to a stranger like a servant just for forty-five dollars?”
William sobbed, “Frankly, I’ve been an orphan since I was a child. I grew up in an orphanage. After years of hard work, I managed to save a hundred and twenty thousand dollars, but I was cheated by my friend from the orphanage. That b*****d had not only defrauded my savings but he had also lured me to take a five hundred thousand dollar loan from various online money lender platforms. I’m at a d**d end now…”
The driver was very shocked since William seemed to be genuinely sad. “What the heck? Why are there such unlucky people in a prosperous era like this?”
He shook his head, feeling sorry for William, and deciding not to force him anymore. “Alright, kid, since you are so pitiful, I’ll let you slip this time! Consider yourself lucky to have a free ride today.”
William kowtowed again and said gratefully, “Thank you, you’re such an angel, you’re my reincarnated father!”
Then, he raised his head and pleaded, “Anyway, since you’ve already given me a free ride, could you give me fifty dollars, please? I need some money for lunch.”
The taxi driver rolled his eyes in great dismay. He kicked him away and cursed, “G*d d**n it! Are you f*****g serious? How could you say such a shameless thing? The audacity! It’s no wonder they say ‘chickens have come home to roost’!”
He walked back to his taxi, started the car, and left.
William struggled to get up from the floor. He muttered to himself while patting the dust off his body, “Well, despite the misfortune shenanigans, I ultimately saved forty-five dollars!”
William’s mood was uplifted slightly after taking advantage of the taxi driver.
He limped to his girlfriend’s house, thinking that the first thing he must do when he saw his girlfriend was to throw himself into her embrace and cry.
His girlfriend lived in a shantytown in the city, which was an illegal housing area in a dire and dilapidated condition.
Despite its dire conditions, William saw it as a gold mine. It was because the government was managing the town’s reconstruction and was demolishing the illegal housing area. The residents of the demolished house would be given a house as compensation and sometimes, they would even be given two to three houses at a time.
This was also why he was eager to marry his girlfriend soon. He hoped that he could be their live-in son-in-law and share some of the profits after the demolition.
