Chapter 213: Bruised Her Ego
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Yun Ziling glanced at the box her second aunt was carrying.
When she saw the Shengjing Garden logo on it, her eyes immediately gleamed with greed.
“Breakfast pastries from Shengjing Garden.
Second aunt, did you buy those for me”
Yun Ziling was taking advantage of this time while Yun Xi was checking her second uncles pulse.
She walked right up to her second aunt and reached out to grab the box from her hands.
“What are you doing This is not for you.”
As Yao Ying saw Yun Ziling reach out to take the box from her hand, she turned around and promptly put the box in her other hand.
Yun Zilings hand froze in midair, and, when she realized that the box of pastries was not for her, she immediately grew embarrassed and angry.
Liang Xiuqin had just come out of the kitchen.
Shed seen Yun Ziling try to grab the box from Yao Yings hand and Yao Ying refuse to give it to her.
This bruised Liang Xiuqins ego.
Yao Ying had a distinguished family background.
Even though she was married to the sickly second son, her familys inheritance remained in her hands.
The two of them were about the same age, but Yao Ying was rich, had a son, maintained the old mans affections, and lived in a luxury mansion bought for her by her third child.
She was simply a winner who had everything shed ever wanted in life.
And what about Liang Xiuqin She had nothing at all.
She came from no distinguished family, had no son, and lived in a house in a villa complex with her husbands father.
Besides the fact that her son had been killed by Yun Xi, that scourge, even the wealthy socialites no longer visited her spa anymore.
With her thoughts on that wretched girl, Yun Xi, ruining her glory and chances at wealth, Liang Xiuqin couldnt contain her resentment.
Yao Ying glanced at Yun Zilings exasperated expression and sneered, “This is the breakfast that I sent someone to line up at Shengjing Garden early in the morning to buy for Yun Xi.
If you want to eat some of their pastries, go buy them for yourself.”
Everyone in Jingdu knew how hard it was to buy breakfast from Shengjing Garden, a century-old brand.
Besides the high prices, being able to buy anything was already tremendous lucky.
There was always a long line to buy starting at six oclock in the morning, the amount available was limited every day, and everything was sold out by nine oclock.
It was extremely difficult to buy even one thing.
Liang Xiuqin had always been irked by Yao Yings snobby, elitist attitude, so she was unwilling to swallow her pride at Yao Yings stuck-up attitude toward Yun Ziling.
“Whats so great about that anyway Isnt it just breakfast As if we dont have any breakfast at home”
Yun Ziling clenched her fists resentfully.
Yesterday it was those imported snacks, and today it was Shengjing Gardens breakfast.
Why did all the good things happen to Yun Xi, that hillbilly
Yun Ziling had only eaten Shengjing Gardens breakfast once.
It was expensive as well as difficult to buy.
That wretched girl Yun Xi had been in the countryside for many years, so what right did she have to eat such delicious food
“Mom! Its not like you dont know that I love Shengjing Gardens breakfast pastries…”
Yao Ying snorted, then mercilessly added salt to the wound.
“Since its not yet nine oclock, perhaps you can still have your mother take you out to buy it and squeeze in line.
This is for Yun Xi.”
“Fine! Who cares about your lame stuff.”
Liang Xiuqin couldnt stomach being looked down on by Yao Ying.
Snorting coldly, she gave Yao Ying a vicious glare, then grabbed her bag to go out with Yun Ziling.
It just so happened that at that time, the old man was coming back from the yard.
From their faces, he knew that there had been drama again.
“What is all the fuss about Arent any of you eating breakfast”
Yun Ziling glanced at the old man, and she realized that they wouldnt be able to buy the pastries now even if they rushed over there.
However, she was determined to give that wretched Yun Xi a hard time.
Walking up to her grandfather, Yun Ziling complained to the old man with an aggrieved expression, “Grandpa, my second aunt is biased toward Yun Xi.
She only bought breakfast for Yun Xi and wont let me touch it.
I am also her niece, and were all family.
Why do we have to divide things up this way”
As for what Yun Ziling was trying to do, Yao Ying could tell exactly what she was up to, so she spoke up immediately.
“Dad, Yun Xi has cured Ming Fengs disease.
You see, he doesnt cough anymore, and his health is getting much better.
This is all thanks to Yun Xi.
Are we being partial by buying her favorite breakfast pastries to thank her This is a thank you gift for Yun Xi.
Yun Ziling, how can you be so greedy as to snatch away other peoples thank you gifts If you could have cured your second uncles disease, I would have given you a thank you gift as well.”
