Chapter 120: Pretend to Be a Pig to Prey on a Tiger
Back home, Yun Xi stood at the brightly lit gate and took deep breaths as she calmed herself down.
Shed won the battle, and this was the happiest she had ever been in both of her lifetimes.
There was still a good show awaiting her inside the house, but she couldnt appear too obviously smug.
Only by stealthily pretending to be a pig while preying on a tiger could she be as deadly.
Sure enough, as soon as she stepped into the living room, she felt the grave vibe.
Grandpa and her father were sitting on the sofa.
Liang Xiuqin, Yun Ziling, and Liang Xinyi were standing off to the side.
All three of them had sulky expressions.
As she approached, Yun Xi could see a red five-fingered mark on her mothers face and that her eyes were red.
When her mother saw Yun Xi returning, her eyes fired daggers at her, as if she wished she could tear her into pieces.
“Grandpa, Dad, Im back!”
Standing in front of the sofa, Yun Xi held herself in a calm and composed manner, as if she hadnt been bothered at all by what had happened at the auction.
When the old man saw Yun Xi coming home, he sighed happily.
Compared to the brainless Yun Ziling, Yun Xi had really helped the Yun family maintain their dignity.
He felt completely relieved that his decision to let her come back home seemed to have been the right decision.
“Yun Xi, Dad knows what has happened tonight.
Your mother and your sister have done such a shameful thing.
Over at Mrs.
“I dont know what Mrs.
After such an enormous scandal happened, it appeared as if we had basically ruined her auction.
In the presence of so many rich and famous people, the Chen family has suffered a terrible humiliation.
I dared not ask whether she planned on making the Yun family pay her reparations.
However, she told me I should come over to the Chen familys house to chat with her the next time Im free.”
Upon hearing this, Yun Yuanfengs eyes lit up, and a smile finally appeared on his gloomy face.
As he looked at Yun Xi, there was unrestrained glee and relief in his eyes.
Chen likes you, so you should go back to visit them.
However, dont be too intrusive.
Be docile and dont embarrass the Yun family.”
Yun Xi secretly felt a sardonic glee inside, but she nodded obediently.
“Dad, I understand!”
Her father hadnt even asked her about whether she was aggrieved by what had happened at the auction today, but instead was only thinking about his own future.
“If you please the old lady and she likes you, she might let what happened today be forgotten.
No matter what, youve saved their eldest son, so the Chen family wouldnt…”
Yun Xi couldnt help interrupting him.
She reminded him patiently, “Dad, the Chen family has already paid off the debt they owed us for saving their eldest son.
Have you forgotten”
“I didnt forget.
Its just that now your mother and your sister have caused such a big farce.
Now everyone knows that I, Yun Yuanfeng, dont know how to discipline my family.
People will make fun of me wherever I go, so where will my dignity be The old lady likes you.
You should get closer to her and beg for leniency when appropriate…”
Yun Xi tugged at the corner of her mouth as her eyes grew colder.
“What happened today happened because my mother has always been biased toward Yun Ziling.
She tried to frame me for Yun Zilings theft.
The old lady cares about me.
Even though I didnt fuss over their trying to make me a scapegoat, now you want me to go beg the old lady for leniency for them Shes seen the ups and downs in life, so what would she think if I did that If I went to beg for leniency, then she would see me as a complete idiot.
I would be letting her down.
Do you think the old lady would still be affectionate toward me then, or do you think she would call me an idiot, which I would deserve If I really did go over there to beg for mercy, the old lady probably wouldnt even let me into the Chen familys front door.”
Her mother and Yun Ziling had dug their own graves.
She wasnt going to debase herself.
After being rebuked by her like this, Yun Yuanfengs face became even gloomier.
In the end, this was all Liang Xiuqin and Yun Zilings fault.
The thought of being dragged down by Liang Xiuqin and Yun Ziling, after hed finally succeeded in getting into a position to get a promotion, and the realization that he would probably miss his chance again made his blood boil with indignation.
“Youre all so useless!”
Infuriated, Yun Yuanfeng smashed his glass of water onto the floor.
