Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The smell of alcohol in the room was so strong that Liu Yiqiu covered her nose and stood at the door, refusing to enter. Seeing his drunken state, Xue Sheng said angrily, “b.a.s.t.a.r.d, do you think I want to bother myself with you? If not for Dad, I would not have come back today!”
Xue Gui waved his hand in a tipsy manner. “Then get lost. Who wants you to come back?! I’ll state it for the record today. It doesn’t matter that I’m going to be soaring into the sky soon. Even if I was poor enough to have to beg for food, I won’t go back and ask for a single cent from you! Similarly, you can forget about taking advantage of my money!”
After saying that, he lay down again.
Xue Sheng turned around and walked out. When he reached the door, he saw the old master standing outside with the nanny supporting him. His expression was very bad.
Xue Sheng sighed. “Dad, you heard it too. This matter is not for me to manage. I’ll go home now.”
The old patriarch wanted to say something, but he opened his mouth and could not utter a word.
After Xue Sheng left without looking back, the old patriarch entered and hit Xue Gui with his walking stick!
Feeling the pain, Xue Gui jumped down from the bed. “Dad, what are you doing?”
Without another word, Old Master Xue continued to hit him. “I told you to sleep, but I never told you to say those words to your brother! Don’t you know that Lu Chao is a liar and that you have been cheated?!”
As Xue Gui heard the first half of the sentence, he was still jumping around. However, when he heard the latter half of the sentence, he was stunned while half-asleep. “What did you say?”
The Xue family’s old mansion was in chaos. Liu Yiqiu and Xue Yao hugged each other and cried while Xue Gui stood rooted to the ground in a daze for a long time. In the end, he and Liu Yiqiu ran to the Liu family’s house to ask what happened.
But alas, the Liu family suffered even worse. The Liu family had invested 120 million yuan and reversed the interest of 10 million yuan. Therefore, they had lost a total of 110 million yuan! The entire family kept crying in the living room, having gone bankrupt overnight!
When Liu Yiqiu and Xue Gui saw them, they suddenly felt fortunate that the time given to them to decide had been too tight. The property and company shares that they had just received had yet to be replaced with additional investments…
The atmosphere in the Xue family’s old mansion was bleak. When Xue Sheng returned to his new home, he saw Ye Li sitting in the dining room and speaking softly to her daughter.
Outside, there were tens of thousands of lights and a cold wind was blowing. Under the gentle lights of the dining room, the two most important women in his life sat, giving off a peaceful feeling.
Xue Sheng suddenly smiled and put down his dissatisfaction. He walked over with a smile. “What do you want to eat tonight?”
The three of them had dinner and went upstairs together.
Xue Sheng was just about to return to the bedroom to shower when Xue Xi stopped him. “Dad.”
He stopped and turned around to see Xue Xi handing him a tie. “This is for you.”
Xue Sheng’s eyes lit up. Even someone who was usually calm could not suppress the smile on his lips at this moment. He happily took the tie. “Xixi has grown up!”
After entering the bedroom, he went to take a shower and did not change out of his pajamas. Instead, he put on his formal attire. When Ye Li entered, he was standing in front of the mirror and showing off. “Look, my daughter gave it as a gift to me! Did you receive one?”
Ye Li smiled. “I didn’t.”
Xue Sheng held back his smile. “Well, that’s fine. Once Xixi receives her prize money, I’m sure she will buy something for you.”
One weekend, he suddenly realized that Ye Li and Xue Xi were wearing mother-daughter outfits. One was a purple mid-styled dress while the other was a purple cheongsam. Xue Sheng could not help but feel jealous. “Didn’t you say that you didn’t receive one?”

Ye Li’s smile widened. “Yes. I didn’t receive a tie.”
Xue Sheng shot Xue Xi a guilty look. Seeing that she was memorizing English words again, he sneakily replied: “Don’t you want to know what a kept woman looks like?”
Ye Li: “Take a picture, or I’ll expose you!”
Xue Sheng smiled. “Yes, Madam!”
They soon arrived at the provision store.
Xue Xi alighted and waved at Xue Sheng. “Dad, I’ll leave first.”
Xue Sheng nodded.
When Xue Xi entered the provision store, he peered in through the entrance to see what his daughter was doing inside.
Unfortunately, the entrance of the provision store was blocked by a curtain and he could not see anything.
The anxious Daddy Xue had coughed as he casually sent Xue Xi out of the car. But having secretly hidden her English vocabulary book, he now alighted.
Hmm… Let’s see, his daughter’s vocabulary book was left in the car. He’s just giving it to her and happened to glance at the pretty boy who had made his daughter dizzy. Would that be too much?
In the provision store.
Xiang Huai, who did not know that his father-in-law was about to enter, slowly stood up at this moment. His eyelids were slightly drooping, and he looked a little listless. His face was also paler than before, and it was so white that it seemed as though he had not slept well last night.
The moment Xue Sheng entered, he saw three people sitting at the dining table.
His daughter and one of the men in black had their backs facing him. At this moment, the man in black kicked the other man’s chair and shouted, “Lu Chao…”
