The Legitimate Daughter Doesn’t Care! Chapter 110

Edited By Adrian

After Xu Xinduo had finished packing her things up into the suitcase, she sat down and took out a notebook to record the money that the Mu family had recently spent on her. After recording all the money, she thought that if possible, she would return it to them.


There was no need for any further involvement with them.


Just as she was thinking about leaving, someone knocked on the door suddenly.


She hesitated for a while, trying to pretend that she hadn’t heard. However, the person kept knocking on her door and then suddenly said, “Duoduo, it’s mother.”


Xu Xinduo hesitated for a while as she held the pen, but in the end she stood up and walked over to open the door.


Mother Mu came in holding a bowl of wonton and placed it on Xu Xinduo’s desk. When her eyes fell on the suitcase, her expression changed and she stopped moving.


Mother Mu said anxiously, “I made this myself. I didn’t know if you have had anything to eat tonight.”


Obviously, the one in front of her was her biological daughter, but this daughter was still too unfamiliar to her. Moreover, she had a guilty conscience and did not know how to face Xu Xinduo. So her voice had no confidence when she spoke.


Xu Xinduo replied: “I ate when I was at Tong Yan’s house.”


“Actually I came here to apologize to you.”


“It’s totally unnecessary. It was just a formality for you to take me back. You didn’t think that it was good for your children to live outside. We don’t have any mutual feelings at all. It must be really uncomfortable for you all to live with me. It’s the best choice for me to move out, leaving a family of four.”


Mother Mu shook her head vigorously. In her impatience, she directly took Xu Xinduo’s hand and explained everything very quickly: “No, I just… don’t know how to make it up to you. I really can’t sleep at night because I don’t know what to do. You are my biological daughter, how could I not want you?”


What Mother Mu said was not a lie, she was really uncomfortable. Xu Xinduo was very cold and indifferent so she didn’t know how to approach her and compensate her.


Coupled with her cowardly character, she didn’t dare to fight with Father Mu and things gradually became like this.


Seeing that things were getting worse and worse, and Xu Xinduo was about to leave the home, Mother Mu finally couldn’t sit still anymore.


Xu Xinduo didn’t want to argue anymore. She was a little tired of everything. She just pulled her hand back and continued to check whether there was anything she left behind.


Mother Mu could only continue to stand in the room and explain: “You don’t know anything. Your father and I aren’t on equal footing. I came from a humble background. My family just ran a wonton shop but your father insisted on marrying me. My family couldn’t support your father at all, which forced him to work desperately hard for all these years. I couldn’t even really help at all.”


Xu Xinduo did not answer, but continued to check her things.


Mother Mu came up behind her and continued: “In recent years, our family’s business has been getting worse and worse. Your father is under a lot of pressure, so he will become more irritable and easily loses his temper. He wants to maintain the Mu family’s family business and provide you all with a good life. Regarding your identity, we feel so helpless. The marriage contract with the Shen family must be maintained and the scandals of our family cannot be publicized…”


“I was transferred to the countryside. Is it a scandal?” Xu Xinduo stopped and asked.


“No, it was our bad management of people. We’re really sorry to have caused you so much harm.”


Xu Xinduo finally stopped, sat on the bed and took a breath without answering.

    Thanks for the update ❤️ mother mu is sad and it’s not good to be in a relationship like that viewing each other as unequal (´ . .̫ . `) I do wish she could gain more strength for herself and her children – including Mu Qingyao, who knows with some boundaries, guidelines and harsh truths she might stop being so braindead.

      i tbh hate it when ppl just take words at face value and dont look at other stuff, her mom is an extreme hypocrite.Its not that she is powerless but she acts powerless.There were multiple ways she could get closer to XX but she did nothing.Look at qingyi he came back from abroad a few days ago yet he is the closest to her in the family, also he searches for the lamest excuses to help and interact with her.

      And that utter b*llsh*t about being unequal in power? Just look at qingyao and qingyi , they aren’t even earning yet they can influence his decisions so much. Also she said it herself,he fell in love with her and married her not the other way around so she still has enough bargaining power. also the unequal say thing is her entire delusion ,she has not once even tried to do so.

      and the strength to protect her family? she has it already , see she could do the same thing she did to XX to her father but no she came to XX to defend her father as right and not to blame him.Does she honestly expect XX to accept she is wrong and shamelessly stay in the house?

      also FYI its said clearly Mu Qingyao grew up with them and has learnt from them,so the mom had ample time to correct her when this conflict wasn’t there and they were a happy family of 4,but she never bothered then and i doubt she will now

    It really irks me when parents cant stand up for their children. I don’t care how milquetoast your personality is normally, when it comes to your kids you have to force yourself out of your comfort zone for them.
    Thanks for the update.

      She couldn’t do anything? She could have raised their kids well, and taken part of their lives. The brother seemed to have turned up well, but what about the daughter that she raised? The one I’m wager is closer to her than the son. How did she turn up like that?
      Likewise, when a new daughter turned up you could have done SOMETHING. Like you know, talking. Interacting. Trying to get to know her. Even if that isn’t your forte she could have, you know, prepared a room for her and things she’d need, but no, she needed her brother to notice and but that water dispenser or something.

      Doing nothing actually is a perfect description. She did nothing. I don’t remember a single convo/interaction between them. But saying she couldn’t do a thing? That’s a blatant filthy lie. She just doesn’t actually care/chose to do a thing.
      She had to wait that much to have a single talk? After bags are done? After the last straw that broke the camel’s back?
      And that’s cause she saw the bag, had she not would she say anything? Or just leave the wantons a “don’t be harsh on your father”and leave?

      This whole talk is pointless. It’s just too little too late, doesn’t mean, and won’t change a thing. Mom will continue to do nothing, and dad and sister are douches/only think of themselves(or profit).
      I hope Xu Xinduo doesn’t go soft and give up on moving.

      No matter how little and how easy it is to do her bags. It’s not worth undoing only to have to do them again later (Plus the prolonged suffering)

      Mom is genuine? Wants to do something for her?
      Good, give her the new address and make an appointment to have tea.
      Lets see if mom actually means it/will put even a tiny bit of effort.

    thanks for chap
    …lol too little and too late,especially how she still tries to occupy the high moral ground and justify her dad’s actions before mc can even complain

    Oh please. She is an adult. There are many things she could have done but chosen not to do
