Imperial Commander: His Pretty Wife Is Spoiled Rotten - Chapter 685 - Act of Desperation
Chapter 685: Act of Desperation
Yun Yuanfeng, however, always felt as if he owed Chen Lixue something. If she were driven out of the Yun family this way, she might impulsively expose their relationship, and that would be no good for anyone.
Therefore, hoping to use Yun Xi to delay things, Yun Yuanfeng said he wanted to wait and talk to Yun Xi as an excuse.
But he hadn’t expected Liang Xiuqin to fire back in such a way. He didn’t give up, though, and took out his phone to call Yun Xi.
Yun Xi was out shopping with Yao Ying when she received the call. Yun Yuanfeng calling to ask her opinion was something she’d never expected.
“Yun Xi, what is your opinion on this matter regarding your cousin? Where is your second aunt? She is in charge now, so we have to ask her how to deal with this matter also.”
In order to shed the responsibility, Yun Yuanfeng was using Yao Ying as a shield.
“Dad, my second aunt said that it isn’t her place to intervene in this matter. After all, she isn’t her relative, but our relative instead. You have to make your own decision.”
After thinking about it, Yun Xi thought that since Yun Yuanfeng had actually asked her advice, she couldn’t turn a blind eye to him.
“Dad, my aunt raised me for so many years, so she at least deserves credit for her efforts. This incident was Liang Xinyi’s mistake. It’s pitiful that her reputation will have been ruined for the rest of her life. I think you should let them stay. After all, they are helpless in Jingdu.”
“But if the Han family…” Yun Yuanfeng was now worried that the Han family would find fault with the Yun family, and would even hinder his future career because of this matter.
How could Yun Xi not guess what her father was thinking? She chuckled to herself. “The Han family wishes to conceal the scandal completely. It is very inconvenient that the family has had such a scandal at the critical time of the Weiya Banquet. They would only wish that Liang Xinyi would keep her mouth shut tightly and not cause any trouble. If they dare to try to embarrass us, who knows what we would do as an act of desperation? At that time, they definitely wouldn’t be any better off. After all, regarding this kind of matter, girls are the ones who suffer more, don’t you think?”
Yun Yuanfeng did think so, and nodded hurriedly. “It makes sense, it makes sense! Why didn’t I think of it?”
“So, Dad, you don’t have to worry too much. You should just keep carrying on as usual, but this kind of thing can’t happen again, and our family can’t be without rules. Also, you have to ask my aunt if she wants to go back to the country to accompany my uncle for New Year’s, otherwise the tickets will all be sold out soon.”
When this matter was mentioned, Yun Xi deliberately emphasized the word uncle to remind her dad, but it didn’t matter to her whether or not Yun Yuanfeng listened.
He had already taken the steps on the road to his demise anyway, and how he continued to travel on that road depended on what he chooses.
After hanging up the phone, Yun Xi walked over to her second aunt, picked up a pair of Chinese knots, and put them in her bag.
Yao Ying had taken a look at the caller ID and asked, “Your dad was looking for you to make decisions about your aunt, right?”
Yun Xi nodded.
“Yun Xi, can you bear to let your aunt stay and add to the trouble?”
“Why wouldn’t I be able to bear it? My mother is the one who can’t bear it anymore. I’m happy to watch them tear each other apart. After they’re finished, my life will be much easier.”
Yao Ying thought for a while and decided that it was indeed true.
In the Yun family’s home, after Yun Yuanfeng had hung up the phone, he turned and looked at Chen Lixue, who was looking at him eagerly. “Yun Xi said that since you raised her for more than ten years, you at least deserve credit for your efforts. You have no other place to stay in Jingdu, so you can stay at our family’s house for the time being. However, after today, we have to set rules. If such a thing happens again, even if Yun Xi intercedes for you, this matter won’t be brushed off. Understand?”
“Yuanfeng, you’ll just let them go like this? What if the Han family comes here? Think about your career, you can’t be dragged down by them.”
“That’s enough, just consider this matter settled. The Han family won’t dare to do anything to us.” Yun Yuanfeng waved his hand to stop Liang Xiuqin from continuing.
With a smug look, Chen Lixue looked at Liang Xiuqin, who was full of anger. This time, she had won again!
