Only then did everyone react. No wonder the master suddenly went back on his word even though he had released news that he was taking on an apprentice. It turned out that it was Qiao Xi who was trying to drive a wedge between them.
Fortunately, Xia Yunlou was not biased toward her daughter and explained the truth. Otherwise, they would really think that Miss Xia had offended Mr. Fang and that was why he was unwilling to take her as his apprentice.
Qiao Xi was too much. Even if she was jealous of Miss Xia, she could not ruin her future! After all, Miss Xia was her cousin!
Everyone’s eyes were filled with mockery and disdain.
Xia Yunlou felt even angrier and ashamed. She had never given birth to this daughter of hers, but there was no use for regrets. She could only grit her teeth and admit that this embarrassing person was her daughter.
When she thought of this, she roared even more angrily. “Qiao Xi! Why are you still standing there like a fool?! Quickly explain things to Mr. Fang! Then apologize to Mengyan!”
The private room fell silent as everyone’s gazes landed on Qiao Xi, waiting for her answer. She raised her eyebrows and chuckled. “What’s there to say?”
“You bastard! What do you mean? If it weren’t for you, Mengyan’s apprenticeship banquet wouldn’t have become like this!” Sumei could not suppress the anger in her heart and shouted at the top of her voice, “Immediately apologize to Mengyan!”
At this moment, Fang Shiyun was not only angry but also heartbroken.
So these were Senior’s relatives!
Previously, when he heard that his senior had found her long-lost relatives, he was very happy for her. However, it seemed that it was better if she hadn’t found such relatives. He was sad to see this.
Xia Yunlou pointed at Qiao Xi and shouted, “Qiao Xi, let me tell you. If you don’t explain yourself, I’ll cut off all ties with you. You’ll never be my daughter again!”
“Will such a great thing really happen?” Qiao Xi crossed her arms, and there was a trace of ridicule in her eyes. Then, she said helplessly, “Fang Shiyun doesn’t want to take Xia Mengyan as his apprentice because Xia Mengyan doesn’t have the ability. What does it have to do with me?”
The private room instantly fell silent.
Everyone looked at her in disbelief. She actually said that Xia Mengyan did not have the ability?
Xia Mengyan’s eyes instantly turned red when she heard that. She looked at her with an aggrieved expression, but a trace of viciousness flashed past her eyes.
Old Madam Xia slammed the table, her eyes bulging. “Nonsense! You’re the one who doesn’t have the ability, yet you’re talking about our Mengyan! You’re just jealous that Mengyan can acknowledge Mr. Fang as her master, you b*tch! You’ve ruined her future. I won’t let you off!”
“Shut up!” A man’s angry roar echoed throughout the private room. Everyone was stunned.
After listening for so long, Fang Shiyun finally understood. The usually gentle person could not help but stop Old Madam Xia loudly. Then, he said with a serious expression, “Let me tell everyone now that I came to Yingyun Hall today to see my senior, not to take on an apprentice. I’ve never promised the Xia family that I would take on an apprentice. Miss Xia, if you don’t have the ability, don’t even think about becoming my apprentice. You’re even blaming all of this on others. If you have the time, why don’t you think about how to improve yourself?!”
As soon as she finished speaking, the entire venue fell silent. Everyone stopped breathing.
Could it be that all of this was really unrelated to Qiao Xi?
Fang Shiyun’s expression darkened. “There are so many people who want to acknowledge me as their master, and I roughly have an impression of all of them. However, I’ve never seen Miss Xia before, much less heard her name. For your laughable vanity, you held an apprenticeship banquet and invited me over. You stood on the moral high ground to force me to submit. Do you think I’ll agree just like that?
“If I gave in to you, I wouldn’t be worthy of being in this industry. Now that the matter has been exposed, you’re blaming others. In short, you won’t admit your mistake and it’s all someone else’s fault, right?”
Fang Shiyun’s words were a slap to the face of everyone in the Xia family. From the beginning to the end, it was the Xia family’s one-sided wish to hold an apprenticeship banquet. They even wanted to force him to take Xia Mengyan as his apprentice. However, he was not someone to be trifled with. He would never yield, nor would he let the Xia family’s plan succeed.
Everyone suddenly remembered that Fang Shiyun had come to Yingyun Hall to see his senior. She was the last apprentice Liang Pingchuan had mentioned. She was extremely talented and kept a low profile. She loved calligraphy. Even though everyone praised her, she was still humble and chose to focus on improving her standard.
Such people had no interest in benefits. They were true artists.
