Chapter 272: Be Magnanimous
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
When Yun Xi got home, there was a group of people waiting for her in the living room.
They looked over as she walked in.
It looked like there had been bad news.
She had just finished eating supper and felt a little sleepy, but she realized that she now had to wake up and deal with this group of relatives who were staring at her as she walked in.
After changing her shoes and walking over, Yun Xi glanced at Yun Yuanfeng, who had stood up and walked toward her.
“Hi Dad, Im back.
Whats going on”
“Yun Xi, did you go to the Chen familys house today Did you see the eldest heir of the Chen family”
Yun Xi froze.
She realized that when Mu Feichis butler had called her home and spoken to the housekeeper, hed said that she was going to the Chen familys house.
The oldest man in the Chen family was Chen Ziliang, Chen Yichens father.
He was an extraordinary figure in Jingdu.
Since her dad had asked her this as soon as hed opened his mouth, she guessed that something must have happened.
“No, but old Madame Chen asked me to go over for lunch tomorrow.
I should be able to see them tomorrow if nothing intervenes.”
Yun Xi glanced at Liang Xiuqin and Yun Ziling, who were also looking at her, then she frowned and looked at her father.
“Dad, since you seem so nervous, perhaps theyve caused trouble again”
As soon as she heard this, Liang Xiuqin stood up before Yun Yuanfeng could even speak.
“Watch your mouth, whos caused trouble Who do you think you are You have to be involved with everything that happens.
Since you take yourself so seriously, then please bear some of the responsibility.”
Yun Xi turned her head to look at her mother, then plastered a fake smile on her face.
Her self-assured and nonchalant countenance made Liang Xiuqin feel a little frustrated.
She knew the ruthless ways of this wretched girl, so she was fearful of her bringing trouble again.
Yun Xi actually wanted to say that if her mother was willing to make way, she would be really happy to be in charge.
It was just that she wasnt that impatient now, since the Yun family would belong to her sooner or later.
“Shut up!” Yun Yuanfeng yelled at Liang Xiuqin impatiently.
Besides the fact that she never helped, she also kept dragging him down.
She was useless.
“Yun Xi, its like this.
Dad wants to be promoted soon…”
Yun Xi nodded.
Everyone knew that if it wasnt for her fathers pending promotion, her mother wouldnt be acting so restrained.
“We suddenly got news from our higher-ups that there was going to be an internal investigation on all the products.
Its sort of an evaluation, but you know that… Our company has benefited from a lot of shady income.
Dad had to rely on shady income sources to feed the family.
However, if they start investigating the company, it is going to be detrimental to my promotion, so…”
Yun Xi understood exactly what was going on.
Her father had probably earned a lot of money during the past few years, and much of it had probably been dirty money from shady business dealings.
If the powers that be found out about his shady business dealings, besides the fact that he would have no hope of any promotion, he might even lose his job altogether.
If that time came, their entire family would end up in the gutter.
Yun Xi was going to college soon, and she was already self-reliant.
However, her mother and Yun Ziling wouldnt fare so well.
This was indeed a thorny issue.
If she talked to Mr.
Chen directly, her motive would be too obvious, and she might end up exposing her dad.
As for what she should do, she still had to think about it.
“So, Dad, you want me to ask Mr.
Chen to go easy on you”
Presumably thinking that she would definitely help, Yun Yuanfeng nodded and gazed at her expectantly.
“Why should Mr.
Chen help us His eldest heirs lifesaving favor has been paid back multiple times, and the Chen family doesnt owe us anything.
Whether or not they would help aside, if I recklessly mention this to him, it could backfire.
Chen wont have noticed any misdeeds, but when I mention something, perhaps he will start investigating.
Are you sure you want me to go ask him”
Yun Yuanfeng thought about it for a while.
He hadnt considered this yet.
They hadnt yet suspected him of anything, so if he went to them himself, it might backfire and expose him.
Liang Xiuqin sneered when she heard Yun Xi try to shirk the task.
“If you dont want to help, just say so.
Its not like youre the only option we have.”
