Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 51
Wenren Xiang had squatted at the prince estate for a few days without much success. When his underlings came to report to him today, he had thought he heard wrong.
Seeing her daughter now, Wenren Xiang felt as if generations had passed between them. Since when did he start to ignore this daughter, even treating her as a pawn for the power of the prime minister estate? It seems like it all happened after that Wenren Yunfei became popular. Damn it. He just knew that he wouldn’t have ignored such an outstanding second daughter if not for that Wenren Yunfei’s interference.
“XunMi, father knows that you are about to get married. These few years, it was father that had neglected you. Thus, father wanted to make it up to you this time. I hope you are willing to allow me this opportunity.” Wenren Xiang put a flattering smile. He personally thought that he hid his intentions well, not knowing that his scheming eyes were plainly visible.
XunMi answered firmly, “It seems that the Prime Minister is misunderstanding. Since the moment that my mother divorced, the prime minister estate and my family no longer had any relationship. There is nothing for the Prime Minister to make up for. You don’t need to lower yourself to curry my favor, we are just strangers.”
If Wenren Xiang was truly repentant, XunMi might give him that opportunity. But he clearly came with the ulterior motive of hoping to use her. XunMi wasn’t braindead, why would she allow herself to become his footstool to climb his way back up?
Wenren Xiang’s face flashed with anger before he promptly remembered that he couldn’t afford to be angry right now.
“XunMi, how could we be strangers. I am your father. My blood flows in your veins, that’s something you cannot change. I know it was I who mistreated your mother and you two siblings in the past. But I’ve already seen the error in my ways. That was never my intentions, it’s all that Wenren Yunfei and her mother that tricked me. I’ve kicked them out of the prime minister estate now. How about you three move back in?” The more he talked, the more shameless he became.
Just a minute ago he was begging for forgiveness, now he wanted them to move back. Where did he get the audacity?
Zongzheng Mufeng snorted, “If not because you are Belle’s biological father, I would have finished you long ago.” It was exactly this reason that he didn’t want this old thing appearing in front of Belle.
“An wang, how could you speak like this to the Prime Minister, I am your father in law! Or do you not want to marry XunMi and only want to incite disharmony between us father and daughter?” Wenren Xiang spit out in anger.
XunMi also became angry, “However An wang choses to behave is my business. You are just an irrelevant party. If Prime Minister insists on creating trouble for us, then I won’t hold back. From the moment you treated me as a exchangable object for power, you were no longer my father.” With those words, XunMi pulled Zongzheng Mufeng with her as she turned and left. In the end, speaking with a moron would only be a waste of her breath. There was only one way to deal with these kinds of people: ignore. She’ll allow him to go stir up a ruckus, as long as his mess didn’t touch her.
“Belle, why didn’t you let me put that old thing in his place?” Zongzheng Mufeng wasn’t satisfied.
XunMi shook her head, “At the very least, he was someone that gave me life. Just like he said, no matter what, his blood flows in my veins. I owe him for that. He abandoned me but that only cut the familial relationship between him and I.” She will help him out when his life is in danger as a way to completely cut off their relationship.
The ancient times were different than modern times. Wenren Xiang’s actions would at most make people think he was dumb.
But if she were to hit him while he was already down, than others would call her unfilial.
Zongzheng Mufeng wrapped his arm around her shoulder, his eyes filled with sympathy and doting for her.
Those that saw their interactions had reacted differently.
Xiao Jing’s reaction was tolerable: his admiration and infatuation grew deeper, but he could only work harder to repress his feelings. The reason he had been hurt last time was because there had been a traitor in his association. After he had finished taking care of things and came to repay his savior’s kindness, he discovered that she was about to get married. He also heard other news regarding his savior, the prime minister estate, and Wenren Yunfei.
As for the other onlookers, they came over after receiving news that Wenren Xiang was here. Wenren Yunfei had been especially miserable these days. She was obviously meant for happiness, yet she was frequently in pain. She was the heaven’s daughter so how could she suffer like this? Thus, she told her two men to bring her to find the Prime Minister.
She didn’t believe that, with her advanced knowledge, she wouldn’t find a way back into the prime minister estate. But now…her hands clenched the sleeves of her clothes as her fingers turned blue under her pressure.
Guan Shengqing and Nangong Muchen thought that had suffered a brutal strike. The woman that they had thought to be malicious was actually so kindhearted. She had obviously been used as a pawn by her father. Yet she simply separated from him and never thought of taking revenge. She even said such words! Between father and child, there was more familial bond. No, there was also bloodline and the life the father gives.
On the other hand, the kindhearted fairy in their hearts had only been cursing and planning revenge against the Prime Minister during this time. In the beginning, they hadn’t thought anything wrong with that. But now, they were a bit confused.
Nangong Muchen and Guan Shengqing didn’t know how things turned out like this. They had both originally been giants among men. One was the richest person in the city but lost everything because of FeiFei. The other was was the talented scholar with a bright future but was also ruined by FeiFei. If she really was kindhearted and wonderful, then there was no problem. But now they weren’t so sure.
Wenren Yunfei didn’t notice the two men’s thoughts at all. She was immersed in her hopes to retaliate against all those people. She fiercely watched the two people walking further away, her eyes gloomy and resentful.
Nangong Muchen and Guan Shengqing both noticed Wenren Yunfei’s mood, making their hearts turn cold. How did FeiFei become like this, or was this always FeiFei’s true face? Then were they playing out of the palms of her hand from the very start?
“FeiFei, you…” Guan Shengqing was in disbelief. Where had the FeiFei he knew gone? Wenren Yunfei didn’t hide the intensity in her eyes when she turned to Guan Shengqing. It could be that she had forgotten, or that she was too overtaken by her emotions.
Guan Shengqing backed up, “You aren’t my FeiFei. My FeiFei isn’t so malicious. I’m going to go find my FeiFei, my kindhearted wonderful FeiFei.” He turned and ran.
Nangong Muchen gave Wenren Yunfei a profound look before also turning and leaving. He needed to calm down. In this month, too much has happened. He needed to rethink everything.
