Chapter 624: Better Force Her to Come Clean
Translator: Lonelytree Editor: Millman97
Elder Xi might have held a high position in the past, but he chose to distance himself from City A and his influence naturally had dropped. That was how the world turned; no matter how high your glory, the moment you distance yourself from the center of it all, you would be forgotten at the fringes.
The Tong family and Shen family, on the other hand, had stayed in City A. Their grandchildren had grown up and taken root in City A, so their influence had only gotten bigger from before.
In other words, the Xi family was no longer a worthy rival. In fact, the Xi family had declined in their eyes. Therefore, with both the Shen family and Tong family there, the Xi family would have to yield.
Unless the Xi family didn't care about having no political future or wished to continue their decline, they would know what to do.
Madam President saw through Shen Ru's thoughts easily.
Noticing Shen Ru's smug smile, she reminded her, "Don't take this too lightly. No matter what, you should sincerely go and apologize tomorrow because it will depend on your sincerity whether they choose to put this behind them or not."
Her advice fell on deaf ears, Shen Ru nodded non-committedly. "Sis, don't worry, I know what to do."
Regardless, she had a hundred percent confidence she could bend the Xi family to her will. She started to get cocky.
Madam President still kindly tried to prompt her. "By the way, have you found out who was the person who influenced Little Yan to come after Xinghe?"
Shen Ru frowned in confusion. "There is no such individual. Little Yan swore on her life that it was out of her own volition that she decided to teach that woman a lesson because she couldn't stand that woman's face."
"Murdering someone is teaching them a lesson" Madam President finally lost her patience. "You'd better force her to come clean soon or this will definitely happen again."
"Alright, I understand." Shen Ru nodded obediently. Madam President hoped she had managed to tease out the conscience within her sister.
After Shen Ru left, Madam President went to the bed chamber to check on her husband. His physical condition had been deteriorating.
Even though Lu Qi had tried his best to maintain his condition, but he couldn't stop the illness from exacerbating.
However, the president maintained his optimistic attitude, death no longer pressured him as much as before.
When Madam President walked in, he was still working. Leaning against the bedrest, he was reading through some documents.
Madam President complained slightly when she saw this. "Why are you still up working? You should be resting."
The president replied with a booming laugh. "I wish I could, but I can't rest easily when I know there's work needed to be done. Making me rest is only going to make me feel incredibly uncomfortable."
"That's not an excuse," Madam President said before turning to the secretary. "Take the documents away. Next time, you must follow the doctor's orders and not let the president work more than six hours per day."
The secretary standing beside the bed nodded. "Yes, Madam."
Then he moved to take away the document. The president wanted to stop him, but when he saw the serious expression on his wife's face, he stopped himself.
"How's everything with Tong Yan?" Since he couldn't busy himself with his work, then the president decided to change the subject. Madam President sat down beside him and told him everything in a helpless tone.
"Hopefully, the Xi family will not pursue this to the end, but if they do, no one will be able to cover for Little Yan." Madam President sighed.
President nodded slightly. "She deserves the punishment since she did commit something illegal."
"I know, but" Madam President didn't finish her sentence but sighed instead. However, the president understood her implicitly.
The president finished her thought.
"But, the Shen family and Tong family will not allow that to happen, right?"
