"It's fine," said Chi Yang to Zhong Kuijun. Chi Yang would be happy as long as he could hold her hand.
Nevertheless, he understood everything he needed to about the family dynamic now. As long as his wife was not willing, no one in this family could bully her anymore.
Jiang Shuwan looked at Zhong Qianqian with pain in her eyes. In the end, she did not entertain her and proceeded to go into the room with Zhong Nuannuan.
When Aunty Zhao saw this, she hurried over and helped the wounded Zhong Qianqian upstairs to change her clothes.
"Nuannuan, please don't blame your mother. Because of your history, your mom has always thought that she owes something to Qianqian's mom. Plus, you were kidnapped by human traffickers when you were three. Qianqian has been living with your mother and taking on your role for all this time. That's why I dote on Qianqian more than you. Even though you're back now, I can't adjust my mentality to adapt to how it is now in such a short amount of time. There are times when even I would subconsciously feel that my treatment toward you is unfair.
9But you have to believe me. You are my daughter. How could I not love you? So please don't say those things to hurt mom and dad, okay?"
1"Mom, I've wrongly put the blame on you. It's only because of how you'll always side with big sis whenever something bad happens. You force me to let her win all the time, so that's why I felt like you considered big sis to be your daughter more than me. That's why I said those words. Mom, I'm sorry. Please don't be mad at me."
Jiang Shuwan was sweating in fear after hearing Zhong Nuannuan's words. She quickly gave her a benevolent smile. She looked at the staircase and after making sure Zhong Qianqian was not coming down, she said, "Nuannuan, for me, Qianqian is the outsider."
Jiang Shuwan answered her matter-of-factly. Zhong Kuijun was standing at one side looking at them with a smile on his face.
Chi Yang's eyes darkened when he saw that Zhong Nuannuan and Jiang Shuwan looked kind of similar.
5Zhong Kuijun changed the subject and said, "Right, Nuannuan. We left at the same time. What did you do during the trip? Why did you arrive so late? Did something happen during your trip?"
"Something minor happened."
Zhong Kuijun nodded. When he was about to say something out of concern, Zhong Qianqian skipped down the stairs and pretended like nothing ever happened.
"Who said it's something minor? Dad, I saw that Big Brother Chi Yang even changed his car. Some soldiers of his dropped them off here in a Jeep."
Zhong Kuijun was alarmed. He looked at Chi Yang. "What happened? Was it serious?"
"No, it's nothing serious. I wasn't paying attention to the road, so I ran into a tree."
"Ah? Ran into a tree? Big Brother Chi Yang, how can you be so careless. Let me tell you, you have to be careful when driving. Sometimes when you're daydreaming, you'll bla bla bla…"
Zhong Qianqian ignored Zhong Nuannuan completely and was talking only to Chi Yang. It can't be certain if she had realized that Chi Yang was not paying any attention to her.
Zhong Nuannuan did not understand how someone's face could be this thick. In a world where people would throw hands when there is a disagreement, Zhong Qianqian would be killed off right from the start.
3Jiang Shuwan poked her head out from the kitchen and called out to Zhong Nuannuan, "Nuannuan, go wash your hands. You have to wash your hands properly after getting out of the detention center so that you'll wash away the bad luck."
1Zhong Nuannuan glanced at her hand that was being held tight by Chi Yang. She felt helpless.
Chi Yang's internal struggles could be seen in his eyes. In the end, he had no choice but to let go of her hand.
Noticing Chi Yang's resentment, Zhong Nuannuan's heart softened. "Why don't we wash our hands together?"
