In the past, he might have participated, but now that he knew Nora Bai was cheating, he didn't want to get involved anymore. After all, Allen Chen didn't have any money, and it was her business if Nora Bai was willing to give it.
He would avoid it if he could.
Watching Allen Chen leave the room, a smile appeared on her mother-in-law's face. She lowered her head and talked to her daughter.
In the restroom, Allen Chen lit a cigarette and smoked by the window. Every time he thought about Nora Bai being with someone else last night, he felt a strong urge to take that woman into the restroom and teach her a lesson.
At this moment, Allen Chen suddenly heard the conversation in the room. He threw away the cigarette and leaned towards the door.
"Nora, when are you going to divorce this loser?" Although his mother-in-law's voice was very low, because the house was small and the restroom door was right next to the bedroom, Allen Chen could hear it clearly.
"Has he discovered your affair with Carl Li? I'm telling you, don't mention divorce until you've transferred the family assets."
"Carl Li has money and power. Even if you become his mistress, it's a hundred times better than staying with this loser. Don't be foolish."
Hearing this, Allen Chen clenched his fists. He couldn't believe that, after returning with Nora Bai, he had been exposed as a cuckold, and besides, he was a fool.
It seemed like everyone knew except for him.
He wanted to burst out and give this family a piece of his mind.
However, Allen Chen's rationality prevailed over his impulse. He narrowed his eyes, gritted his teeth, and vowed to make them all pay for their actions.
"By the way, you haven't been sleeping with that useless guy lately, have you? Let me tell you, guard your last line of defense. If you end up with an illegitimate child, no one will want you, you silly girl." Just when his mother-in-law was speaking nonstop, Allen Chen suddenly opened the door.
The mother and daughter, who had been whispering immediately fell silent and looked nervously at Allen Chen nervously.
"Mom, I think buying a house for Hank is a big deal, and as his sister and brother-in-law, we should help." Allen Chen sat back down and continued, "Nora still has some money, even though it's not enough for the down payment. We'll figure out the rest."
Neither of them expected Allen Chen to agree so readily and offer to cover the down payment.
"Allen Chen, what are you doing?" Although Nora Bai had a tendency to support her family, she didn't want to use all her savings for them.
"Honey, I don't mind helping Hank buy a house. He's your brother and my brother too."
"Don't you still have 100,000 dollars in your secret savings? Just take it out first."
"When did I have so much secret savings?" Nora Bai had no idea what Allen Chen was talking about. She looked at Allen Chen in surprise and asked, "What are you talking about?"
But while the two were talking, his mother-in-law's attitude changed completely. She smiled and nodded in agreement, "Look, I said Allen Chen would definitely agree."
"Back then, I didn't misjudge you. Both of you are coming over for dinner tonight."
The change in his mother-in-law's attitude made Allen Chen feel disgusted, but in order to take revenge on this family, he did not show any signs of it.
However, Nora Bai, who was sitting on the side, had an unpleasant expression on her face. She had her secret savings, which she had scrimped and saved for, and she couldn't understand how Allen Chen knew about it.
"Mom, I have something to do tonight, so I won't be coming for dinner." Nora Bai suddenly got up, looked at Allen Chen with sharp eyes, and said, "Don't you have something to do as well? Why don't you leave?"
After saying that, she picked up her bag on the sofa and rushed out of the house without looking back.
Once the two of them left the apartment building, Nora Bai stopped and shouted, "Why did you agree?"
"Isn't that your brother?" Allen Chen replied with a cold smile. Instead of stopping, he walked briskly and said, "Now there's an heir in the Bai family. You should contribute as an aunt. Isn't that normal?"
"But even if I use my secret savings, how are we going to get the rest of the money?" Nora Bai was nearly going crazy. She couldn't understand what Allen Chen meant.
Seeing her furious, Allen Chen smiled and said, "You'll have to figure out the rest of the money yourself. You know I'm not making much money right now, and I can't help much."
She hadn't expected that Allen Chen, who had opposed her giving money to her family, was suddenly so generous today. She couldn't say anything and felt extremely uncomfortable, like a cat on hot bricks.
Nora Bai stood in place, her emotions not calming down for a long time. When Allen Chen walked away, she turned and got into her car.
Today's revenge was just the first step. If Hank Bai's wife was carrying the Bai family's child, Allen Chen definitely wouldn't participate, but now things were different.
Moreover, that 100,000 dollars was not his own; why wouldn't he take advantage of it?
More importantly, Nora Bai would definitely have to ask her lover, Carl Li, for the rest of the down payment. When that happened, Allen Chen would have evidence.
"Hey, Fred, do you have time to grab a drink this afternoon?"
Allen Chen walked aimlessly on the street and suddenly thought of Fred, a colleague at the company whose wife worked at a bank. He took out his phone and dialed his number.
"Brother Allen, I'm at work! Aren't you afraid that devil woman will find out if we skip work?" Fred put down the documents he was working on, answered the call, and walked out of the office.
The two of them are both unpopular in the company and have similar personalities, so they have a particularly good relationship.
Whether there was something to do or not, they would go out for a drink together.
"Just tell her that you need to run the business. If anything happens, I'll take care of it for you. I'll send you the address." Allen Chen didn't waste time and hung up after saying that, sending his location directly.
He passed through the streets and found a small barbecue restaurant on the corner. Now that Allen Chen was holding the video, he didn't worry at all about his career. What made him furious was Nora Bai's affair.
Fred soon arrived on his electric scooter, parked it, and walked over.
"Brother Allen, you are really awesome today. You made that devil woman blush in front of so many people, but she didn't do anything to you." Fred said while taking a sip of beer and asked, "Have you taken care of that devil woman? Tell me about it."
Allen Chen smiled and said nothing, raised his glass and the two bottomed up.
"Fred, we have been friends for so many years, and I won't hide it from you." Allen Chen gently put the glass down and continued, "My wife may have cheated on me."
Hearing what he said, Fred's eyes widened and he asked, "Brother Allen, you have to investigate this kind of thing clearly before talking about it. You can't make blind guesses."
"I don't think my sister-in-law is like that. If you were talking about that devil woman, Ava Liu, I'd believe it."
Seeing Fred's sincere expression, Allen Chen felt like a thorn was piercing his heart. He didn't want to believe that his wife was really having an affair, but the evidence was right in front of him, and he had no choice but to believe it.
"I just want you to do me a favor and help me clear things up."
Logically speaking, Allen Chen shouldn't be discussing such matters with anyone, especially since he had been cuckolded, which wasn't something to be proud of. However, investigating it himself would be impossible, as he couldn't get close to Carl Li.
That's why he needed Fred’s help.
"You mean, ask my wife to investigate at the bank?" Fred seemed to understand what Allen Chen was getting at and asked.
