The Legitimate Daughter Doesn’t Care! - Chapter 15
Shen Zhuhang was visibly disgusted. He tapped his fingers on the table and commented irritably, “I have definitely rejected her. Yet, she continues to play pretend and clings to me all day. I don’t know if she has read too many novels to the point where she thinks acting stupid could actually attract someone’s attention, but I just feel disgusted, okay?”
Zhen Longtao, another boy in the classroom, couldn’t help but praise him, “Brother Zhuhang is so awesome. It makes my heart feel giddy to know that even a beautiful girl like her is going after you.”
The moment Xu Xinduo entered the room, his eyes had widened, after all.
Shen Zhuhang immediately retorted, “It’s very annoying, alright?”
Shao Qinghe, who was reading a book, suddenly said, “But how did she come to know of this cram school?”
Shao Qinghe had always been a gentle young man. When he spoke, his tone was adequate and he made it a point to speak softly.
Mu Qingyao said in a low voice, “Dad helped her sign up.”
Shao Qinghe nodded and then said, “So it was your father who signed her up for these classes. She didn’t take the initiative, then?”
Mu Qingyao didn’t answer.
Shao Qinghe turned around and looked at Mu Qingyao for a while as she finally acquiesced. Then, he said to Shen Zhuhang, “In that case, you don’t need to worry; she didn’t come here for you.”
When Shen Zhuhang heard this, he felt a little embarrassed but he still said, “I came to this cram school just to accompany Yaoyao. Since she has taken the International Class, what is she doing here?”
Shao Qinghe thought Shen Zhuhang was right so he asked Mu Qingyao, “What did your father think when he signed her up?”
Mu Qingyao didn’t want to answer with the truth because it would embarrass Shen Zhuhang. She was now anxious to make everyone hate Xu Xinduo. Hence, she could only answer euphemistically.
“She always fights with me. She wants whatever I have.”
In fact, Mu Qingyao’s thinking process was very simple. She felt that Xu Xinduo’s arrival was a kind of threat which made her felt uneasy. What she was most afraid of was the possibility that Xu Xinduo would snatch Shen Zhuhang away from her. She liked Shen Zhuhang very much and he was also good to her, so she wouldn’t give him up. Thus, she tried to make Shen Zhuhang hate Xu Xinduo.
The more Xu Xinduo was hated, the safer she was.
What’s more was the fact that she didn’t want to be defeated by Xu Xinduo and wanted to prove herself urgently. She wanted to let her parents know that she was better than Xu Xinduo through numerous times of careful plotting and scheming. The children who grew up in a powerful family were incomparable to those who grew up in a village like Xu Xinduo.
Isn’t it better to just raise me alone?
It was all about uneasiness and resentment. Everything came from the anxiety and anger in her heart.
Lu Renjia couldn’t help but ask, “What qualifications does she have to fight for him? She’s just an adopted daughter and it’s only been how many days since she arrived at your home? I don’t think she’s that much of a fool.”
Zhen Longtao also asked, “Is she so eager to find a boyfriend? As long as he has money, she will definitely pursue him?”
Lu Renjia then said, “Of course, she is just an adopted daughter, after all. However, how can she do such things without any shame? You can give a stash of money to this kind of girl and they can literally do anything for it— how undignified.”
Lou Xu looked at them and couldn’t help frowning as she felt very disgusted.
She didn’t know the specifics but she just felt that Xu Xinduo was beautiful and left a pretty good impression on her.
She had been peeping at Xu Xinduo all the time, so she was more than aware that Xu Xinduo didn’t pay attention to Shen Zhuhang during the entire duration of the class.
How could Shen Zhuhang say those words?
They are so shameless.
