The Legitimate Daughter Doesn’t Care! - Chapter 10
Mu Qingyao disagreed and became even more aggrieved, “Why should I be the one tolerating? Why should I be wronged? Our family of four used to be fine all the time, so why did this happen suddenly… “
Father Mu also felt apologetic.
They were a perfect family, but now, their family was descending into chaos.
He couldn’t ignore the blatant blood relation with his actual daughter, but he couldn’t bear to abandon the child that he had a hand in raising for almost 20 years either, forcing him into a dilemma.
In their eyes, Mu Qingyao was innocent as she didn’t know anything; the truly detestable one was her greedy nanny who desired fame and fortune!
When Mu Qingyao found out that she was not their real daughter, she always tried to look cute and well-behaved— it was not all that easy. Therefore, in her eyes, Xu Xinduo who had just come to the house seemed to be very rude.
Xu Xinduo didn’t care about the pain of this father-daughter duo. She went into the kitchen alone and poured herself a glass of water.
Father Mu looked at Xu Xinduo and said, “Xinduo, apologize to your sister.”
Xu Xinduo took a sip of water and then said, “I’m sorry.”
Mu Qingyao pointed at Xu Xinduo and continued to scold her, “Dad, look at her; it doesn’t seem like she is sincere about admitting her mistake.”
Father Mu looked at Xu Xinduo and said, “Xinduo, you need to get along with your sister. She’s your family from now on, do you understand?”
“Got it,” Xu Xinduo said while putting down empty glass.
She washed the cup. When she exited the kitchen, she heard Father Mu comforting Mu Qingyao,”She comes from the countryside so her character and temperament are incomparable to yours. Please forgive her, okay?”
“Both of us are your daughters, but why should I be wronged?”
“Well, you are a sensible child. Don’t bother to argue with her, okay? It’ll only make you feel worse.”
Seeing Xu Xinduo come out, Father Mu said to her, “Xu Xinduo, since you are the daughter of our Mu family, you will have everything Yaoyao has. We will let you learn the piano and dance— both will improve your temperament.”
“Oh, okay,” Xu Xinduo responded.
“There is also a cram school nearby that I have already registered for you to attend. Yaoyao and Xiaoyi are also in the class. The courses consist of public school academic textbooks, so you can give them a try. Just in case you regret one day, you would be able to change back to the local study format. “
After a while, seeing that Father Mu had nothing else to say, she returned to her room and took out her books to start reading.
Recently, she was fascinated by a novel. It had not been translated into Chinese yet, so she read it directly in English. After a while, her mobile phone rang— it was Tong Yan.
After Xu Xinduo answered, she heard Tong Yan’s voice, laced with a tinge of laziness, “I’m so annoyed-“
Xu Xinduo was still reading her book. So, she asked casually, “What’s the matter?”
“My tattoo was demanded to be covered with a concealer.”
“Then cover it.”
“But it will make me upset.”
“Then don’t cover it.”
“If I do that, they will not let me play.”
“Then… just chop off your neck.”
Tong Yan didn’t bother about this matter anymore and asked her, “I really don’t understand you; how can you accept the status of being an adopted daughter?”
“It’s all for grandma.”
Xu Xinduo had never met her so-called ‘parents’ since childhood. She knew that she had a maternal grandmother but the maternal grandmother never went to visit her either.
Hence, she was brought up single handedly by Grandma Xu.
After living together for so many years, their relationship became very close. Grandma Xu was a very kind grandmother, eternally recognised by Xu Xinduo as a beloved family member.
