The Legitimate Daughter Doesn’t Care! - Chapter 159
Edited By Adrian
Mu Qingyao did not expect that Father Mu would suddenly ask this question. She shook her head and replied, “I don’t know.”
“Shen Zhuhang called me earlier, saying that he was going to break up with you. He also told me everything that has happened. I had to talk to him in the car for over half an hour before I could calm him down by saying that I would teach you a lesson.”
Mu Qingyao opened her eyes wide in panic and looked at him anxiously. She replied: “It’s not… he is exaggerating things!”
“He is angry, because you hugged some other boy, isn’t he?”
“He went to the cinema alone with a girl from our class before…”
Before she could finish, Father Mu directly flipped over the small table in front of him. The table crashed hard on the floor along with the things on it, making a loud noise. There was even a vase of flowers on the table. Mu Qingyao liked to have the fragrance of flowers in her room so she used to buy flowers often. She had built up this habit a long time ago.
So when the table was knocked over, the vase broke, and water and vase fragments spread all over the floor.
Mu Qingyao trembled in fright and immediately hugged Mother Mu. Mother Mu was equally shocked, but she still subconsciously comforted Mu Qingyao.
“You still don’t understand what your role in this family is?” Father Mu said in a low voice, like a suppressed beast. “Your role is to connect the Mu family with the Shen family by marriage. Otherwise, there is no need for us to go through so much trouble just to keep Xu Xinduo’s identity hidden. All of this was done because of your marriage contract!”
Father Mu’s drastic change in attitude completely shocked the pair of them.
Mu Qingyao was so scared that she continued to cry and did not dare to speak.
Father Mu continued: “Why haven’t you figured out your role until now? You are still thinking of making things even more messier! You should be firmly grasping at Shen Zhuhang right now. He is your only life-saving straw. Otherwise, why should I let you stay in my house?”
“Am I not your daughter?” Mu Qingyao asked chokingly.
“Yes! You are! You have enjoyed the benefits of being a Mu family’s daughter for 17 years. Moreover, you even have a fiancé like Shen Zhuhang, who has such a good family background. You are treated much better than my actual biological daughter. What’s wrong with you marrying him? With your true Identity, it would not be certain whether you would have enough money to eat or not. You are worried about domestic violence? You deserve to be beaten for going around flirting. Do you really consider a slap domestic violence? Do you consider yourself that precious? Really? Do you really think of yourself as a legitimate daughter?!”
Mu Qingyao had never seen this ferocious side of her father. She was trembling with fear and her heart felt like it was being stabbed with a knife.
She once thought that the Mu Parents had been thinking about their 17-year relationship. She was raised by them. They must have deep affection for her so they couldn’t bear to part with her.
But at this moment, she realized that in the eyes of Father Mu, she was just a tool to bind the Shen family with the Mu family through marriage.
After she married Shen Zhuhang, it didn’t matter whether she was happy or not, whether she would be beaten or not, whether she would be cheated on or not, it was fine as long as she was with Shen Zhuhang.
She was still the daughter of the Mu family because of this.
If there was no engagement, maybe she would have been thrown out a long time ago…
