Cheng Weiwan didn’t wait for Cheng Weiguo to finish and interrupted. “According to what you said, he’s willing to marry me, so should I kneel and thank his whole family for him being willing to marry me?”
“In your eyes, just how worthless is your daughter? Do you think you’re going to be happy as long as anyone’s willing to marry your daughter?”
“Let me tell you – I won’t marry! Hanhan and I are living pretty well. I don’t need to marry someone and even if I’m going to get married, I don’t need to get married to someone like that. If you want a marriage, you go marry him because I won’t get marr-”
Before Cheng Weiwan could say the word “married,” Cheng Weiguo, who was furious from her back talk, suddenly raised his hand and slapped her hard on the face.
The driver suddenly hit the brakes at the loud sound of the slap and stopped the car in the middle of the road.
The previously-noisy car from all the screaming instantly fell silent.
After a while, Cheng Weiwan then raised her hand to cover the part of her face that just got slapped.
Tears gathered in her eyes, but she stared right at Cheng Weiguo, unwilling to let them fall.
Her fingertips upon her skin hurt a little and it repeatedly reminded her that her own biological father really did just slap her…
Having been so sad over never receiving love from her father since she was little, Cheng Weiwan fully imploded.
All this time, the things she’d never had the chance to say, or maybe,the things she didn’t want to say to get Cheng Weiguo’s love, were all rushing to her mouth.
When she spoke again, she sounded a lot calmer in contrast to her earlier agitated state. However, every single word struck blood.
“Did I say something wrong for you to hit me? I’ve said nothing wrong. Why do I have to marry him? What benefits can he give you? What good can he give me?”
“Now you remember you have a daughter you can use, but what about before? Why didn’t you think of me then?”
“You’ve never done your duty as a father for a single day. Now, what right do you have to ask me to listen to you?”
“I used to fantasize about you, but I later realized that I was being foolish. Why would a father who was never even willing to glance at me be worthy of my fantasies?”
“In your eyes, you only see yourself, your career, your reputation, and your future. Aside from this, you have nothing in your eyes. In front of everyone, you pretend to be a kind father, but in reality? You constructed the image of a loving person. Aren’t you afraid your image will collapse one day?”
“The word ‘image’ sounds decent, but in other words, it’s your ‘facade’…”
“A disgrace! How could I have given birth to someone so disgraceful?!” Cheng Weiguo’s face flushed as he pointed at Cheng Weiwan like he still wanted to yell at her about something. However, he thought for a long time but couldn’t come up with the words. In the end, he settled for pointing at the door next to Cheng Weiwan and said, “Get out! Get out right now!”
Cheng Weiwan didn’t care where the car stopped, nor how dangerous it was to get out on the highway. She didn’t hesitate for a moment as she pushed the car door open and got out.
The second she opened the car door, she heard the ear-splitting roar of Cheng Weiguo’s voice, “Get out of the car!”
The second she found her feet, the car instantly sped off.
Cheng Weiwan stood on the highway for a while before she walked down the long street towards the highway exit.
