Meng Xintong felt anger rising from within her as she stared at the palm print on Zhou Pingyu’s face. She looked closer at it and asked him, “How are you? Does it hurt a lot? This is all my fault—”
“Don’t worry. I’m alright. I’m glad it didn’t hit you.” Zhou Pingyu looked at Meng Xintong and shook his head. The only thing that made his heart ache was that she actually lived her life in such conditions. No matter what, he was going to take her away from the Meng family.
Meng Xintong turned back to Master Meng and raised her voice. “Father, since I was young, no matter how you scolded, beat, or neglected me, I’ve never complained. Even when I’ve grown up, you’ve never seen me as your daughter. I’m just an item for sale, always assessing me to see how much value I have. I’ve always endured, and I was always lonely. Finally, I met Pingyu, and only he cared and doted on me, but you hit him. Who are you to hit him? What right do you have to do such a thing?”
Meng Xintong took a deep breath before continuing angrily, “You must think that because I’m your biological daughter, you have all the right to abuse me. You are just a snob who bullies others with your power.”
“You bastard, trash. Get lost.”
Meng Xintong held back her tears and laughed loudly. “Okay, then I will get lost. In the future, you better not beg me to come back to the Meng family.”
After Meng Xintong left with Zhou Pingyu, Master Meng slumped on the sofa. Without understanding why, something felt wrong in his heart when he saw his eldest daughter leaving the Meng family.
Master Meng didn’t know that his actions today would cause him to regret deeply in the future. When the truth was exposed in the future, and he knew that he only had one daughter, it was already too late.
A mocking glint flashed across Su Lenghan’s eyes. So, this was the Meng family. He had finally seen it all today. No matter how Master Meng tried to suck up to him, Su Lenghan remained aloof.
After leaving the Meng family, Meng Xintong went to Zhou Pingyu’s apartment.
Zhou Pingyu held Meng Xintong’s hand as he thought for a moment. Finally, he said, “Xintong, don’t return to the Meng family anymore. I’ll work hard to earn money for you, and you will want for nothing.”
Meng Xintong used ice cubes to treat Zhou Pingyu’s face and replied, “You’re really an idiot. As long as we’re together, everything else doesn’t matter. The only thing I’m worried about is the Meng family’s men of sacrifice. I need to get them, even if it’s just a few. If not, they would become a threat to us.”
The two of them stayed out temporarily. Meng Xintong took out the information about Chen Pei as she was planning to release it to the reporters in a few days.
Xie Limo met with Zhou Pingyu.
Zhou Pingyu looked at Young Master Xie who he admired and looked up to, and excitement filled his heart. He talked to him with respect.
Xie Limo chatted with Zhou Pingyu. He observed him for a while before saying his motive—he wanted to help him enter the political scene of Zi Bei City.
Zhou Pingyu was stunned, and the words didn’t immediately register.
“You’re worried that because the good and the bad mingled in Zi Bei City, it would be hard to manage?”
Zhou Pingyu quickly shook his head. “That’s not it, Young Master Xie. I just didn’t expect you to help me and give me this chance. I’m not afraid of the mingling in Zi Bei City. I can endure difficult situations.” He had always wanted to work hard by relying on himself to provide a stable life for Meng Xintong.
Xie Limo laughed lightly as his slender fingers tapped on the table. He said slowly, “I won’t hide it from you. I’m doing this for my wife because she wants to enter the entertainment industry. Since Zi Bei City holds the best market, I want you to enter its political scene. I will help you, but everything will still depend on yourself. I believe you will accept this plan since we both have that person in our hearts, right?”
