“… Don’t think that just because you’re married now, you’re no longer a member of the Shen family. Think about your sister when you’re out there. Why are you so close to the Ji family?” Her father, Shen Yong, babbled
non-stop. His tone was filled with unconcealable anger. “You and your sister are the ones who are related by blood. It’s fine if you don’t help your sister become Maestro Lin Ran’s student, but how can you push that
girl from the Ji family to become his student?!”
After the banquet that day, Shen Sisi came back crying. She said that she wasn’t chosen by Maestro Lin Ran because of Shen Hanxing. Shen Hanxing was the one who pushed out that timid younger sister of the Ji
family, Ji Ning. If Ji Ning hadn’t been there, Shen Sisi would have been the first candidate to become Maestro Lin Ran’s student.
Shen Yong was furious when he heard this. Thus, he called Shen Hanxing to lecture her that just because she married into the Ji family does not mean she has truly become part of the Ji family.
“You will always be a member of the Shen family. If something happens to you, we would be the only ones to help you. If you don’t build a good relationship with your sister now and something happens to you in the
future, do you think your sister will care about you? The relationship between sisters is reciprocal!” Shen Yong reprimanded her in anger.
“Now, quickly tell that girl of the Ji family to inform Maestro Lin Ran that she wants to stop learning from him. Make her tell him that she is not worthy to be his student. Then, you can recommend your sister to
Maestro Lin Ran.”
Shen Hanxing really could not understand. How could Shen Yong have the cheek to make this call? In the beginning, Shen Sisi was unwilling to marry Ji Yan. Thus, he tried every means to trick Shen Hanxing to return
to the country and marry Ji Yan instead. The father-daughter relationship between them had long been broken.
Shen Hanxing was both angry and amused. “I’m sorry to interrupt you, but I did not know that I have to build a good relationship with Shen Sisi? I’m Mrs. Ji now, and I’m supported by the Ji family. As long as I can coax
the members of the Ji family, there’s nothing that I can’t get. Why would I need the help of your insignificant Shen family?”
Shen Yong was stunned for a moment as if he didn’t expect Shen Hanxing to react like this. After a long while, he said, “Shen Hanxing, are you crazy? Did you forget your surname is Shen? How can you be so selfish?!”
“Ha, you still know that my surname is Shen? Then why didn’t you think of my surname when you conspired to marry me into the Ji family?” Shen Hanxing could not help but laugh. “I have long broken off with the Shen
family. You have no right to scold me, and I have no obligation to take care of a child born from a mistress.”
Her tone was especially sarcastic.
Shen Yong’s voice suddenly became sharp. “Shen Hanxing, don’t go too far. Don’t forget how you married into the Ji family! If not for me, would you be living the life you have now?”
“Don’t worry, I will never forget your kindness to me in this lifetime!” Shen Hanxing emphasized the word ‘kindness’. She continued, “I will never forget who gave me my identity as a slum dweller, and I will never forget
how my mother died. Shen Yong, I will call you ‘Father’ one last time. I also want to remind you properly that I am now Mrs. Ji, and the Ji family has my back. I am no longer a daughter who is unable to resist your
control. If you continue to speak rudely, I don’t mind letting you experience the benefits of the Ji family having my back.”
The strength of the Shen family and the Ji family were worlds apart. If the Ji family fought with the Shen family, the Shen family would have no way of defending themselves.
Shen Yong was so angry that he directly hung up the phone.
Shen Sisi looked at Shen Yong with a face full of anticipation. She hoped that he could convince Shen Hanxing to give up and let her be Maestro Lin Ran’s student. When she saw Shen Yong hanging up the phone, she
couldn’t help to ask, “Daddy, how is it? Did Shen Hanxing agree?”
“Huh, agree? She doesn’t know her place after marrying into the Ji family!” Shen Yong sneered.
Hearing this, Shen Sisi knew that it was hopeless. She pursed her lips and lowered her head. She said, “It’s alright. It’s not your fault, Daddy. Sister she… perhaps people forget their roots when they have power. It’s just
that I’m quite worried about sister. The Ji family isn’t that easy to get along with. She won’t be able to rely on the Ji family. We are the only ones who would be truly good to her.”
When Shen Yong heard that Shen Sisi was so considerate of Shen Hanxing, he was even more satisfied with his obedient and sensible daughter. He patted Shen Sisi’s head and said, “Don’t worry, Daddy will definitely
help you snatch this spot. No matter how rebellious Shen Hanxing is, it won’t change the fact that she is my daughter!”
On the other side, Shen Hanxing had just hung up the phone when she saw Ji Yan, who was sitting on the sofa reading documents, looking up at her. He asked, “Are you in a bad mood, my wife?”
The other brothers and sisters sitting on the other side of the sofa also raised their heads and looked over, their eyes filled with concern..
