TWQQF ch 241 - An Unexpected Discovery; Chasing Away The Best (10)

If it wasn’t what had happened last night, perhaps Mrs. Cheng would send someone to fetch her daughter to entertain their relatives. But she wasn’t going to disturb her daughter’s rest just to chitchat with them.

Mrs. Cheng did has her own bottom line after all!

Even though Luo Yujie wasn’t happy about it, she dare not show her discontent. She still remember clearly what had happened last night, how could she still be her arrogant self in front of the Cheng’s? She was even a little more frightful and kissing up to her sister Mrs. Cheng.

After waiting what seemed like forever to the Tian’s, Cheng Xiao Xiao finally showed up.

She came over to see her parents and didn’t expect the living room was full of guests. Cheng Xiao Xiao frowned lightly, ignored their looks, and curtsied toward her parents, “Mom, dad, what’s the matter?”

“Xiao Xiao, sit, sit. Join us for lunch!” nodded Cheng Biyuan.


After taking her seat, Cheng Xiao Xiao swept across the Tian’s with her glance and asked, “What do you want to talk about?”

“Nothing, Xiao Xiao. We just want to come and see how was your rest!”

Fawning on Cheng Xiao Xiao, Luo Yujie said with a smile, “Xiao Xiao ah, you youngsters shouldn’t stay home all the time. You should go out more. Your cousins are going to take a trip to the town today. Xiao Xiao, you should go with them!”

“Are you making arrangements for me?” Cheng Xiao Xiao looked at her sternly, a shred of anger could be detected in her voice.

Did that woman really just tell her to accompany her sons?

“Ugh, no…”

Startled by Cheng Xiao Xiao’s look, Luo Yujie’s face turned red and white, but she said defiantly, “Xiao Xiao, how could you say that? We are family. What’s wrong with hanging out together? I only have your best interest in mind!”

“Family?” A shred of sarcasm flashed through Cheng Xiao Xiao’s eyes and she rejected her directly, “I don’t have time. I can arrange my own agenda. They can go wherever they want to. We will send our men to take them, I am not a servant!”

Her bluntness brought darkened look on the Tian’s. Especially Tian Fusheng, one could already detect anger on his face. He never expected Cheng Xiao Xiao to be so unyielding. After all, he did rush to back up and help out the Cheng’s the previous night.

That was exactly why the Tian’s had talked about how to collect this favor and build relationship with Cheng Xiao Xiao. After all, they have learned in the last few days that Cheng Xiao Xiao’s authority almost rivaled that of Cheng Biyuan at the Cheng’s.

She made all the calls around the house!

Having this knowledge, the family had shifted their attention to Cheng Xiao Xiao. Even though they knew it wasn’t going to be an easy feat, Luo Yujie believe that the Cheng’s owed them a favor after last night.

And that was why they waited the entire time for Cheng Xiao Xiao to show up.

She did show up finally, but her mannerism was not what the Tian’s had expected. It was exactly the same as it was a few days ago – that she had no respect for them at all.

“Xiao Xiao, how could you say that, what….”

Before Luo Yujie could finish what she was saying, Mrs. Cheng stood up abruptly, looked straight at her older sister and said, “Yujie jie1, Xiao Xiao was up all night last night, can’t you just let her rest for a few days? Jiang’er and Feng’er wanted to take a trip, I will send Danhuang and Tianshan to accompany them. Xiao Xiao is not going anywhere today, she needs to rest!”

Seeing her mother got upset for the first time ever, Cheng Xiao Xiao was genuinely startled. She has always been a total pushover. She’d rather take the shorter end of the stick than to confront anyone.
