“Zhong Nuannuan, you had a chain of beads worth over 100 million, and instead of seeking benefits for the Zhong Family to let the Zhong Family develop better, you threatened to donate the chain of beads. You’re already such a backstabbing woman even before getting married, so what qualifies you to be a daughter of the Zhong Family? Why don’t you just die outside? Why did you come back? Why did you destroy my marriage? You wretch!”
Zhong Qianqian, who had lost both Aiden and Gu Mingzhe, was completely hysterical. Even though one of her hands was still being held by Zhong Nuannuan, hurting almost to the point of shattering, she still stretched out her other hand to try to slap Zhong Nuannuan in the face.
Unexpectedly, Zhong Nuannuan suddenly exerted a bit pressure, and the former staggered out with wide steps. Her ankle suddenly twisted, causing her body to collapse onto the mounted mahogany handrail behind her. Her face turned pale with pain.
“Zhong Qianqian, don’t forget our dad’s profession! Whether or not you believe it, if I were to accept that chain of beads today, negative news surrounding Dad would break out tomorrow. The military base strictly prohibits officials from collecting money through banquets, weddings, funerals and other events. If such a precious chain of beads is accepted, much less in the face of the military base’s commander-in-chief and chief of staff, do you think Dad would be able to pass this test?
“I’m also not a fool. Even if I’m not taking the Zhong Family into consideration, I can still cash out the money from the chain of beads for my own spending, so why did I decide to donate it? What more, donate it to the military base as an act of charity? Zhong Qianqian, both you and Mom are short-sighted, and our minds do not operate on the same wavelength. I don’t want to comment, but if you want to quarrel with me on this matter again, don’t blame me if I turn against you!”
“Did you hear that? You have no brains, and you still dare to have the impudence to blame Nuannuan. How did she end up with a mother like you?”
Zhong Qianqian almost went mad with anger when she saw that Zhong Kuijun did not get angry, but even looked touched. She sat on the ground and cried while kicking up a fuss. “Zhong Nuannuan, shut your silver tongue! When it comes to quarrelling, nobody in this house can go against you since you understand our thoughts best! Even if you were trying to gain credit by donating the chain of beads, why didn’t you tell Mom that Aiden was outside the window? If you told Mom, she wouldn’t have embarrassed herself like this unless she was crazy!”
Zhong Nuannuan was indifferent, after all, this family was dispensable to her. Especially Jiang Shuwan and Zhong Qianqian, as she had not taken revenge on them yet!
She shrugged. “Well, you’ll have to ask Mom why she was so impatient. When she pulled me inside, I hadn’t even managed to recover my composure when she started to scold me fiercely. Mom, you don’t usually speak quickly, so why did your speech pattern speed up so much when you scold people for causing trouble?”
Jiang Shuwan was taken aback!
“Zhong Qianqian, she’s still your mother’s daughter. Just tolerate her this time.”
Zhong Qianqian was shocked!
“Dad, I’m a little tired, I’m going upstairs first.”
“Sure, go ahead.”
Jiang Shuwan and Zhong Qianqian screamed for a very long time, but even so, Zhong Kuijun did not have the slightest intention to blame Zhong Nuannuan. Instead, he felt that of all the women in his house, only Zhong Nuannuan was presentable to the public.
As she watched Zhong Nuannuan’s figure dissapear, Zhong Qianqian fumed. She wanted to rush forward to hit her, but because her waist had hit the mahogany chair, she could not move, and she could only let out her voice and shout sharply at the figure disappearing around the corner upstairs. “Zhong Nuannuan, you wretch! I curse you to death!”
“Shut up! What kind of person curses their sister like this? With your character, even if Aiden didn’t kick you away now, you’d never have been able to get to the point of marriage with a noble person like him!”
In the huge living room, only Zhong Qianqian’s uncontrolled howling was heard.
