Chapter 1193: Playing Dumb
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Yun Yuanfeng had intended to be subtle about his intentions, but the straightforwardness exhibited by Yun Xi had unexpectedly caught him off guard and left his planned speech useless.
He did not need to beat around the bush.
He could just tell Yun Xi what he wanted to say.
“I just wanted to know about what kind of relationship you two have.
Im sure that you know that the Jiang family has a lot of power and connections in Jingdus political world.
Your mother offended him, and I had to bear the brunt of that from my supervisors.
You see, Second Master Jiang as the head of the family has the power to command it to do as he wants.”
Yun Xi nodded.
“I know, but I thought the Jiang family wasnt troubling you any longer If that problem has been settled, why do you want to risk offending them again”
“Thats not what I mean.
I meant that if we could have a good relationship with them, or if you are friends with the Second Master, it will be easier for you to find a good job when you graduate.”
Yun Xi decided that her best course of action was to play dumb and take advantage of the situation.
She shrugged her shoulders.
“Im in medical school.
If my grades are good, the school will recommend me to the military hospital, and I wont need to search for work.
I mean the best hospital is the military hospital.
Other hospitals would be okay too, but I doubt my professors would want me to waste my talents there.”
She realized that she sounded overconfident, but Yun Xi knew that her professors had long ago sent a recommendation letter to the military hospital about her.
It might be only her first year in the university, but the professors of her faculty had nothing but praises and recommendations for her.
Professor Xu of the medical faculty was a genius like no other, and he had recommended Yun Xi.
This was like a golden ticket for her.
Yun Yuanfeng really didnt understand the dynamics of medical school.
Yun Xis explanation had made it impossible for Yun Yuanfeng to continue with what he wanted to say, and suddenly he was at a loss for words.
His face darkened.
No matter how hard he thought, Yun Xis comments had made such sense, and he couldnt find an opening to continue.
Liang Xiuqin, who had been quietly listening to the father-daughter exchange, decided to interject rudely, “Dont you get what your father is trying to say Youre only in your first year.
Who is thinking about your future We dont have the time to worry about you.
Your dad wants you to know that the Jiang family is huge in the world of politics.
If you have a good relationship with the head of the Jiang family, you can help your dad.
Do you want your dad to be a director his entire life You are his daughter, so you have to help him.
What was the point of raising you if you dont help your dad”
“Silence!” The thoughtless words pouring out of Liang Xiuqins mouth were hard to hear even for him.
Yun Yuanfeng turned to Liang Xiuqin and gave her a hard look.
All she knew how to do was to bring him more trouble.
They were speaking to their daughter.
Who did Liang Xiuqin perceive her to be
They were her parents, and this was not what a parent should say to a child.
More important, they were asking her for her assistance at the present moment.
The reason might seem proper in their minds, but they should not state this so directly.
Liang Xiuqin had completely disregarded her mother-daughter relationship.
By putting it in the way that Liang Xiuqin did, it was stating plainly that Yun Xi was simply a tool to exchange for personal gains in their eyes.
Fools will remain fools.
Liang Xiuqin had no idea how to persuade others at all.
“Dont listen to your mothers nonsense, Yun Xi…”
Yun Xi was used to the sharp tongue of Liang Xiuqin.
She had anticipated exactly what they wanted, and in fact she had become bored with the predictability of the situation.
Yun Xi knew how to deal with Liang Xiuqin after years of practice, and she was unbothered by her.
“I understood what Mother meant.
So, Father, you want to climb, right”
Yun Xi gave them a cold smile as she looked up at them.
She took a drink of the hot milk tea nonchalantly.
She wondered if Auntie had added a bit more sugar to the tea because it was extra sweet today.
She knew her father better than anyone else..
He was not the only one who knew how to threaten another.
