Chapter 10 - I Inherited Billions

I kicked him really hard.

He was not at all prepared for it.

That was why I had kicked him right on the target.

“Ow… Ow, that hurts!”

Lorne grabbed his balls in pain as he howled on the ground.

Lacey had gone to hide behind my back during this.

After enduring the torturing pain, Lorne staggered up from the ground and looked at me viciously. “You little bastard. How dare you attack me? You’re dead, you’re definitely dead!”

I was not afraid of his threat. I laughed and said, “Are you asking for another kick?”


Fear appeared on Lorne’s face. He was finally frightened enough to simply say, “Just you wait. We’re not done yet.”

He scurried away after threatening me.

Lacey finally appeared from behind my back after Lorne left. “Thank you for tonight, Freddie. If it wasn’t for you, I would’ve been in big trouble.”

It could have been because I had just saved her.

She was now speaking to me very gently, and her eyes were shining.

However, I was still as cold to her as before. “Hoho, stop being so full of yourself. I didn’t kick him because of you.”

“It wasn’t because of me?”

“We came out of the motel together, so anyone who isn’t blind could’ve guessed what happened between us. I don’t want anyone to think I can’t even protect my own woman.”

“So that’s it? You really aren’t interested in me?” A disappointed look flashed across Lacey’s eyes.

I caught her look of disappointment and laughed. “Alright, that’s enough for today. Stop being so dramatic, and hurry up and leave. I didn’t feel a thing when you took off all your clothes in front of me, so I sure won’t feel anything more now that you have clothes on.”

“Fine.” She looked quite dejected.

I was not bothered at all and quickly left.

I gave Vincent a call after leaving Lacey.

I got him to handle the situation with Lorne.

A ruffian like him would never let a matter like being beaten up go, which was why I had to take care of him before he created any trouble.

I headed for my rented home outside of school in a great mood after I hung up the call.

Even though only two days had passed, I was already nicely adjusting to my new status.

It was a great feeling to hide behind the scenes and keep my accomplishments and status a secret.

I was deep in thought when a Volkswagen Golf slowly came to a stop next to me.

A pretty face popped out from the car. “Hi, Mister. How do I get to Shoal Apartments?”

Shoal Apartments?

She was staying in the same place as I was?

I paused for a moment before pointing her in the right direction. “Follow this road and drive for about half a mile. Turn left after that, and then right. Drive for another half mile after turning right and you’ll find the place. It’s pretty easy to spot.”

I thought I had explained pretty well.

However, it was apparent that this girl was bad with directions. There was a blank look on her face as she listened to me. “Mister, could you be clearer? I didn’t catch any of that.”

“Urm… Don’t you have some map app on your phone?”

“It died.”

“Well…” I hesitated, wondering how much clearer I could make the directions for her.

She asked sweetly, “Mister, where are you headed to?”

“I’m heading to Shoal Apartments too.”

“What a coincidence. You should get into my car. I’ll give you a lift.” She happily waved me in.

Me? Get into the car?

I was a little taken aback by her words.

To date, besides Vincent, no one had ever said such a thing to me.

Many of my classmates drove, but they had always thought of me as a poor loser and would never allow me into their cars.

“Thank you.”

I thanked her and got into the passenger seat.

It was then that I got the opportunity to see this girl in her entirety.

She was pretty gorgeous, especially her side profile, which could capture the heart of any man in an instant.

She was wearing a simple white T-shirt on her upper body, while her lower body donned a blue checkered skirt. I could tell from her apparel that she was a student.

What surprised me was her breasts. They were extremely voluptuous.

The size of her buxom bosom was astounding!

The front seat of the Volkswagen Golf was quite spacey, but with her in the driver’s seat, her breasts pushed against the steering wheel, making it seem like she was leaning against it as she drove.

I was stunned. Those were definitely F cups.

I sat at the side, quietly looking her up and down.

She suddenly turned to me with a reminder. “Mister, remember to put on your seat belt.”

“Got it.”

I quietly put on my seatbelt and waited for her to start the engine.

However, she did nothing after waiting for quite a while. I could hear her mumbling, “Turn on the signal, after that, look at the rearview mirror… Then turn the steering wheel and step on the accelerator… That doesn’t sound right. I think I should check the rearview mirror first…”

A driving newbie?

I broke out in a cold sweat when I heard her mumbling. I regretted getting into her car.

This was not a shortcut home. This was a shortcut to heaven!

I looked at her and asked nervously, “Miss, do you know how to drive a car?”

“Don’t worry, I just got my license last week.” She smiled sweetly at me.

I grew even more scared when I heard this.

It was lucky that she was not a fast driver. She drove less than twenty miles per hour the whole way there.

Nothing dangerous happened on the road.

We were about to reach Shoal Apartments when I was finally able to relax.

However, an accident happened right then.

Our car was waiting for the traffic light at the junction to turn green to continue the journey.

It was at that moment an old man crossing the road suddenly lunged at the car. He yelled and slowly fell to the ground.

The girl was shocked when she saw this. “Did I… Did I hit someone?”

“Let’s get down to take a look!”

The girl and I both immediately got out of the car.

“Sir, are you alright?”

The girl approached him with concern. She wanted to help the man who had been knocked down up.

However, the old man waved her away. “Don’t touch me. My leg must have been broken by your car.”

“But I didn’t crash into you!”

“That’s bullshit. Could my leg have broken on its own?” The old man pointed at his ‘bloody’ right leg angrily.

The girl was stunned to see his pants covered in fresh blood. “Did I really crash into you?”

She was a newbie driver who was being cornered into a terrible situation. It would be impossible for her to keep calm.

“Can’t you see that you definitely crashed into me?”

“What should we do now? Do you want me to take you to the hospital?” the girl asked worriedly.

“Forget about the hospital. I understand that you’re both students and this isn’t an easy situation for you. How about this… Why don’t you just compensate me with some money?”

“Is that alright? How much do you want?” The girl looked slightly more relaxed when she heard that all he wanted was money.

“I won’t ask for much. Twenty thousand should do it.”

“Twenty thousand? Why don’t you just go rob a bank?!” The girl’s expression changed.

At this point, I understood what was going on.

This old man was faking a traffic accident!

As for the fresh blood all over his pants, it was probably food dye.

After figuring things out, I quickly walked between them and said to the girl, “You should get back into the car. I’ll pay up.”

“You’re paying?”

The girl looked surprised. “How could I let you do that?”

“It’s fine. I’ll handle this.”


Even though the girl was hesitant about it, she listened to me in the end.

I slowly crouched on the ground after she left. I touched the old man’s leg and said, “So, it’s broken and you can’t walk?”

“That’s for sure. Can’t you see the blood everywhere?” the old man said.

“Fine. I’ll give you the money, but it won’t be two thousand…”

The old man thought I was negotiating and shook his head vigorously. “That won’t do. I’ll need a hundred days to recover from any broken bone or fracture. Just look at how hurt I am. It can’t be less than two thousand.”

“You’re mistaken. What I meant was that I should be giving you more,” I laughed and said.

“What?” The old man was stunned.

It was clear that this was the first time after a long time of faking accidents that someone wanted to give him more than he asked for.

“Think about it. You’ve been seriously hurt, and there might be a chance you’ll be disabled, which is why two thousand is definitely not enough.”

“That’s right, you’re absolutely right.” The old man nodded furiously.

“Once someone is disabled, they’ll lead the rest of their lives in misery. Every day is torture.”

“You’re completely right. So, how much will you be giving me?”

“There’s no need to be so anxious. What I’m trying to say is that since you’re already in pain, why not let me give you a million, and we’ll get this over? You’ll get your money’s worth.”

“What do you mean?” The old man was puzzled.

I did not bother to explain. I gave him a sly smile and turned to get into the car.

“I’m done with the negotiations,” I said to the girl.

“How did you go about it?”

“There’s no need for you to worry about that. Just reverse your car and drive straight over him.”

“Huh? Drive over him?” The girl was confused, wondering what exactly was going on.

I explained when I saw her quizzical expression. “He’s a conman who fakes traffic accidents. All you need is to pretend to drive straight at him. I promise you, he’ll run faster than anyone else out of here.”

“Are you sure?”

“Trust me.” I gave her an unwavering look.

“Alright. I’ll do it.”

She followed my instructions and reversed her car. After that, she stepped on the accelerator and drove straight toward the old man.
