Lan Xiaoyun was never a person who would willingly endure any sort of humiliation. That can be seen from how eager she would fight to the death with Bai Zhi (Bai Yan's half-sister) from way before.
Yet at the Dong family, she can withstand the grievance for so many year….
"Wahhh!" Throwing herself into Bai Yan's arm, the young girl could no longer hold back her tears of pain: "Cousin, how can there be such a shameless person in this world? She knew all along she's not a granddaughter of our Dong House yet she would have the audacity to continue attacking my mother! And if anyone is to owe her anything, it should only be Dong Rou Qin (cowardly man). My mother suffered so much, all for what? All for nothing!"
Patting the girl on the back in a soothing motion, Bai Yan can only silently comfort her poor cousin there. She understands, Lan Xiaoyun was truly weeping with all her might due to the grievances she's been building up over the years.
"This is so unfair! Why is it that Xiaoyun gets to jump into Sister-in-law's arm when she's sad?"
Still munching on his sweet little snacks, Bai Xiachen was the one to answer the demon princess's question: "Auntie, you can also jump into my mother's arm when Baddie Father picks on you."
Despite that kind remark, the girl had to think hard to reason the plausibility of that happening: "I think… she would directly kick me out instead."
"….." Oh good, so Auntie is at least smart enough to know Mother would kick her out.
"Milord," it was then at this moment a guard from the Dong House rushed into the room. Kneeling there to make his report, the newcomer appears frantic in his words: "Old Lord Lan has come and he's demanding your presence right. He also brought along a large number of soldiers with him, all geared to the teeth at our doorstep!"
Old Lord Lan?
Dong Tian Ling (Old Lord Dong) was actually taken aback there for a second: "In-laws is here? Then I will return right away. Miss Bai Yan, would you mind if I take Fu Bao Yun and the others back with me first? I want to deal with them in front of your grandfather's face as apology!"
In agreement with that idea, Bai Yan casts a mild look towards the old grandpa to give her approval: "Very well, since my grandpa is here then let's do just that. But remember, none of them are free to go!"
Gripped with despair, Fu Bao Yun's first instinct was to turn to her secret lover Qi Jia for help. Sadly for this foolish woman, instead of getting the comforting nod she's hoping for, the bastard was pretending like she didn't exist!
"Miss Bai Yan, I admit I did have an affair with Fu Bao Yun before, but that was when I was young. Which man wouldn't make a mistake in their youth? Even if this woman did commit a sin, it should have nothing to do with me."
Now that's what you call a devastating blow. In the abhorrent woman's heart, this man whom she holds so dear was her last string of hope. To be shirked away like its nothing, how can she possibly remain unfazed?
"Cousin, do you know what you are saying? You clearly said that the person whom you love the most is me in this life, and that you are only trying to lure Bai Yan because of our children…."
"You shut up!" Running cold sweat across his body due to her words, the heartless man roars out without remorse: "When did I ever say I want to lure anyone?! I've long advised you on multiple occasions to be nicer to your husband, yet you never listen. Now that you've committed a crime so heinous that you cannot avoid, you want to drag me down too?"
Then as if that wasn't enough, this heartless man didn't forget to shoot a direct kick at the foolish woman: "How can I possibly collude with a vicious woman like you? If it wasn't for the mistake I made as a youngster, you think I would even bother speaking with you?"
That kick definitely hurt, but it can never compare to the pain she's experiencing right now from those cruel words. Spurting out blood from the endless hatred eroding her heart, Fu Bao Yun truly had nothing left at this point in her life. Not her royal status, not her family, nothing….
Meanwhile on the side, Dong Mu Xue (horrible daughter) was already scared out of her wits. She just can't fathom why her biological father would turn tail so quickly and become such a cruel and heartless person, especially after all those kind words he said mere minutes ago.
