Chapter 75 Then Kneel
“Cousin-in-law, what do you want me to do?” Cheng Liu did not wipe away the tears on her face. She suddenly raised her voice and said, “I know my mistake. Your slap already made me realize a long time ago. If Qianqian is still unwilling to forgive me, do you want… do you want to force me to kneel?”
The three of them knew how to put on an act. Unfortunately, Shen Hanxing did not fall for it. “Okay, then you can try kneeling.”
Cheng Liu immediately froze.
Ji Qian, who was behind Shen Hanxing, was overjoyed. She stuck her head out. Then she said excitedly, “If you want to kneel, then kneel. No one will stop you.” No one had expected such a reaction from them. Cheng Liu immediately found it hard to regret now. She felt that everyone’s mocking gazes were about to drown her.
No one was looking at Cheng Songyang. At this moment, his cold gaze landed on Cheng Liu, warning her. Things had already come to this point. If Shen Hanxing and Ji Qian were not satisfied with their mother and sister, they would only be more humiliated today and become the laughingstock of the upper-class circles.
Cheng Liu gritted her teeth. In her heart, she hated Ji Qian and Shen Hanxing more and more. She made up her mind and wanted to kneel.
“Let’s make this clear,” Ji Qian reminded her. “you’re the one who’s willingly kneeling. I didn’t force you, nor did I say I’ll forgive you if you kneel. Don’t force me to forgive you just because you knelt.”
Ji Qian was a prideful person. Instead of giving an annoying vibe when she said that, she looked straightforward and cute.
“That’s right. If apologizing is useful, then why do we need the law?” Shen Hanxing nodded in agreement. “Whether you forgive or not is entirely up to you. No one can force you to do anything you don’t want to do.” Cheng Liu didn’t know whether to kneel or not. She maintained her slightly bent knee posture, neither kneeling nor standing up. She was so angry that her entire body was trembling.
“Since you refuse to forgive, then forget it.” A hint of viciousness flashed across Cheng Songyang’s eyes.
Then, he sighed helplessly. “Cheng Liu was the one who made a mistake. An apology is to express the attitude of our Cheng family. I hope that you can see that Cheng Liu has changed a lot. She won’t make the same mistake again.”
“So you aren’t going to kneel?” A hint of disappointment flashed across Ji Qian’s face. She wanted to see Cheng Liu, who liked to pretend, kneel in front of her and apologize. She might even let someone take a photo of it. When she was in a bad mood, she would take a look, and perhaps her mood would instantly elevate.
“Forget it. If you’re not going to kneel, then don’t kneel.” Ji Qian waved her hand in boredom. “Sister-in-law, I’ll go find my friends if I am not needed here anymore.”
“Okay,” Shen Hanxing nodded. After Ji Qian left, she nodded slightly at the three Cheng family members as she said, “Auntie, if there’s nothing else, I’ll proceed with what I have been doing just now. There are other guests who I need to attend.”
With that, she turned around and walked into the crowd.
Cheng Songyang stared at her back, the corners of his lips slowly rising, revealing an excited yet determined smile. Not only did Shen Hanxing’s performance not make him angry. Instead, it made him feel the excitement of hunting. He felt his blood boiling as he planned on how he could make this fiery rose his.
He wanted to pull out the thorns on her body bit by bit and make her submit to him. He wanted to make her beg and cry under his body. Just thinking about that scene excited him.
Cheng Liu did not know what was in Cheng Songyang’s mind. She complained, “They are too much! I must make them pay the price! I must make them kneel in front of me and beg
She had never been wronged like this since she was young! “Xiao Liu, don’t worry. Mom and brother will avenge you,” Ji Mei’s felt sorry for her daughter as she hugged her in her arms and comforted her, “wait and see. They won’t be happy for long.”
After all, the status of the Ji family was there. There were not many guests that needed Shen Hanxing to entertain them. What was surprising was that the Zhuang siblings also came over with gifts.
Old Master Zhuang only had two sons. The eldest son and his wife had died in a car accident a few years ago, leaving only their children, Zhuang Yu and Zhuang Hengyu. Zhuang Hengyu’s dream was to become a doctor with superb medical skills. He was not interested in business. On the contrary, Zhuang Yu was rather talented in it.
“Mrs. Ji,” Zhuang Yu was not old and was lively. When she saw Shen Hanxing, she approached her enthusiastically and said, “long time no see.”
Shen Hanxing had a good impression of the Zhuang family. Zhuang Yu was young, but she was thorough in handling matters. She would be a powerful woman in eth future.
“Previously, grandfather’s attitude was rude when his beloved orchid was damaged. I hope Mrs. Ji doesn’t mind,” Zhuang Yu handed over a gift and explained with a smile, “now that grandfather has calmed down, he specially asked us, siblings, to come over and apologize. I hope Mrs. Ji and Miss Ji Qian can forgive us.”
