The Legitimate Daughter Doesn’t Care! - Chapter 7
Her skin was fair as if it was sculpted from the highest quality white tallow jade. If it weren’t for the small marks that clung onto her face when she slept, her appearance would have been absolutely perfect.
This kind of young beauty suited life in front of the screen. With just a smile at the camera, she could attract a bunch of fans and make them crazy for her.
(T/N: Life in front of the screen refers to people who appear on the media a lot. Though commonly referred to actors, entertainers, idols, artists etc could be considered as well)
Her presence in school was definitely an existence that could not be ignored.
She was so beautiful to the point where she was almost glowing.
But… in the end, she was nothing but a country bumpkin.
Shen Zhuhang looked down upon her identity as an adopted daughter.
He pretended to be calm and said, “Are you Xu Xinduo?”
“Get down to business,” Tong Yan’s eyes looked down at Shen Zhuhang’s hands on the table. He wanted to get angry, but he reminded himself that this was Xu Xinduo’s body. Hence, he couldn’t get angry.
Otherwise, my Great Aunt will get angry again.
(T/N: Like how Tong Yan is called ‘Brother Yan’ by the class out of fear and intimidation, he addresses MC as ‘Great Aunt’ out of respect— slightly in a joking manner between friends though)
“I advise you to shove those ridiculous thoughts out of your head and stop daydreaming,” Shen Zhuhang chuckled and said coldly.
“What thoughts?” Tong Yan asked curiously.
“Indeed, I have a marriage contract with the Mu family but the marriage contract is with a genuine lady like Yaoyao— not some adoptive daughter like you. Seriously… are you really an adoptive daughter? Or…” Shen Zhuhang laughed evilly.
As the Mu family abruptly accepted an adopted daughter who resembled the Mu family’s adults, it was rumored that Xu Xinduo was the daughter of the husband’s mistress.
Matters like that were better to be kept under the table, after all.
“Mm,” Tong Yan looked at Shen Zhuhang, wondering what this boy was going to do.
Shen Zhuhang was a classmate of his and the relationship between them was mostly okay.
Rather, Shen Zhuhang was one of his extra lackeys and he normally wouldn’t bother to care about him either. Who would have thought that there was such an attitude hidden behind the mask of a flattering persona.
Shen Zhuhang mocked her sarcastically once more, “Oh? Didn’t you transfer to the International Class Four for me? Let me tell you something— give up on your delusions because I’m not interested in a country bumpkin like you. You better maintain your distance from me; otherwise, I can make sure that you’ll never be able to fit in with the class.”
Tong Yan suddenly froze.
What the hell?
Xu Xinduo transferred to this class for Shen Zhuhang?
Seeing Xu Xinduo’s dumbfounded expression, Shen Zhuhang had a moment of satisfaction.
Sure enough, this bumpkin is stunned, right?
If you had known of such an outcome beforehand, you wouldn’t have those unrealistic delusions.
Then he saw ‘Xu Xinduo’ laughing uncontrollably all of a sudden. She pointed her finger at him and asked, “You’re nuts, aren’t you? Were you always this dramatic?”
“What did you just say?”
“I was wondering what you were talking about! You’re saying that I like you? Should I be saying that I like the way you’re so stupid, or I like the way that you cower in fear when a fight occurs?”
Shen Zhuhang’s expression changed instantly.
How did she know? Did Mu Qingyao tell her about it?
Tong Yan continued to lower his volume as he said, “Take care of your image,”
His tone of voice was laced with a warning.
Shen Zhuhang became angry. He thought of a rebuttal and started to retort, “You… What sort of nonsense are you talking about? Utterly shameless! You’re befitting of a low status, after all. With such despicable words like yours, I will never fancy a product like you so just give up!”
Tong Yan was a little angry.
He wondered if he could get angry.
Then, his mobile phone vibrated. He glanced at the screen: It’s over. Shall we switch back?
He typed back: Fine, I was just about to hit someone.
Seeing that Xu Xinduo was ignoring him, Shen Zhuhang knocked on the table with his hand and said again, “I’m talking to you!”
Xu Xinduo, who had just returned to her body, looked up at Shen Zhuhang. She found him familiar but she forgot who he was. Hence, she asked, “Hello, who are you again?”
