Chapter 391: Being Kind to the Enemy Was Being Cruel to Oneself
The screams and the sounds of the beating that was going on in the living room stopped.
Yun Xi looked at her father and her mother blankly.
After having been severely beaten by Yun Yuanfeng, Liang Xiuqin collapsed to the ground, weeping.
None of her three daughters sympathized with her.
Yun Xi was pleased to see that.
Yun Ziling was selfish and only cared about herself, and Yun Chuhan seemed even gleeful to see her mother suffer.
Standing by the sofa, Yun Xi looked at her pitiful mother with cold eyes, and she felt nothing but indifference..
It wasnt that she had no conscience, but that her conscience toward her mother had been completely destroyed.
In her last life, her mother had treated her so poorly, and their relationship had been dissolved by a glass of sulfuric acid.
Was she being cruel If she hadnt become this cruel, then she would have been the one lying on the ground now covered with bruises, or even worse.
Being kind to the enemy was being cruel to oneself.
There had never been much love in this family.
Yun Yuanfeng had a massive headache, and even beating Liang Xiuqin hadnt relieved his anger.
He had no idea what was going to happen to him in the future.
Liang Xiuqin was a burden to him now.
But he couldnt get a divorce at the moment.
A divorce would be detrimental to his image, especially if he wanted to be promoted.
If bad rumors started circulating about how a mistress had caused his divorce, there would be a lot of gossip.
Especially now when everybody loathed men who played around on their wives, personal ethics had become a standard of assessment.
And now, right before his promotion had been finalized, Liang Xiuqin had caused such huge trouble for him.
In the living room, Yun Xi watched her second aunt use sweet talk to try and persuade her grandpa to move outside the villa complex.
The old man couldnt bear to leave, so he was in a bad mood.
He sat on the sofa sulking and didnt speak.
He looked as if he had gotten a few years older.
Yun Xi felt a little guilty.
This was all because she had set up her mother.
Everyone else had only gotten dragged into the mess.
After hesitating for a while, she turned to look at Yun Yuanfeng, who was smoking fiercely.
Now that her goal had been achieved, she decided to put forward her conditions.
“Dad, Ive heard Madame Chen say that she and our grandfather are old friends.
I will try to ask the Old Madame for help.
Perhaps for the sake of Old Madame Chen, Madame Feng will let us stay in the villa complex.
Grandpa is getting old, and if he cant get good rest after moving, it wont be good for his health.”
When Yun Yuanfeng heard that there was some hope, he suddenly raised his head and looked at Yun Xi eagerly.
“Then the Su family…”
Yun Xis lips twitched.
She knew that to her father, family wasnt important.
His career was more important.
When there was hope, the first thing that came to his mind wasnt how to make their family comfortable, but rather his own future.
“Im afraid it wont be so easy to handle the Su family.
You know, the four prominent clans have been in Jingdu for so many years, and they have always minded their own business.
I am afraid that the Chen family wont intervene with the Su family for us.”
How could Yun Yuanfeng not understand this It was exactly because he knew this that hed wanted to kill Liang Xiuqin, the idiot.
“Yun Xi, are you sure you can convince Madame Chen”
Her second aunt looked at her with worry.
She felt distressed and helpless.
Obviously, Yun Xi was the most wronged one of all, but, in the end, it was she who had to clean up the mess made by her mother.
She had never seen such a mistreated daughter.
“I will try my best.” Yun Xi looked at her grandpa and made her own request.
“Grandpa, my mother has made such a big mistake, so Im afraid that she can no longer be in charge of this family.
Otherwise, if something like this happens again, our whole family will suffer unknown consequences.”
The old man looked at his only useful granddaughter and sighed slightly.
“Yun Xi is right.
From now on, main control over this family will be handed over to my second daughter-in-law.
You will be responsible for the finances this year.”
When Liang Xiuqin heard that the old man was about to revoke her authority in the family, she struggled to get up.
Even in her wounded state, she managed to give Yun Xi a vicious glare.
“Dad, I know I was wrong.
I wont make any mistakes ever again.
I will take good care of this family.”
