Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 601
Chapter 601: Beautiful Victory
To everyone, Xuan Island was a mysterious and desirable place. People who came from Xuan Island were either rich or noble, not to mention the Luo family, an exceedingly powerful family.
Such a large family that had hundreds of years of history actually sent someone to celebrate Qiao Xi’s birthday?
Someone reacted and asked in fear, “May I know who from the Luo family is here?”
If the Luo family had only sent a butler or servant, it would not be a big deal. After all, the master of the Luo family was not the one making an appearance.
In the next second, the butler broke out in cold sweat and said, “It’s… It’s the young master of the Luo family from Xuan Island, Luo Qing.”
Everyone’s heart skipped a beat. They stood up at the same time and rushed out as if they were possessed.
Without even saying goodbye, the banquet hall that was originally filled with guests instantly became cold and quiet.
The appearance of the Xue, Shen, and Qin families was already beyond everyone’s expectations. Now, even the mysterious young master of the Luo family from Xuan Island had come. They would be crazy if they still stayed in Xu Anran’s banquet hall.
Wen Xi was too embarrassed to leave, but her parents dragged her to Qiao Xi’s banquet hall.
Although they were relatives of the Xu family, in the face of absolute power, they had no choice but to yield. Furthermore, if they went over there, they might have a chance to interact with those families. If they were to get on good terms with just one person there, it would bring great benefits to the entire family.
How could the Xu family compare to those families?
Xu Anran stood where she was like a stone statue. Her face was hideous, and her eyes were filled with hatred. Her hypocritical mask gradually shattered.
Xu Anyi was stunned for a few seconds before he hurried over to comfort her. “Anran, it’s okay. Even though they’ve left, there’s still us. I won’t leave you.”
Xia Yunlou gnashed her teeth in anger, resenting Qiao Xi for not giving Anran face and ruining her birthday party.
Xu Zhi stood on the spot, his body trembling as if he was struck by lightning.
How could Qiao Xi possibly know so many great figures?
In that case, she had agreed to compete with Anran, not because of the shares but because she knew that she would not lose and would win beautifully.
When he regained his senses, Xu Zhi’s face was gloomy. His body became limp, and he almost fell to the floor.
That was right! Qiao Xi knew that she could win, yet she still wanted 30% of the shares!
“Dad, Mom, since… there’s no one else in the banquet hall, why don’t we go celebrate Sister’s birthday together? Let’s not be separated on an occasion like this.”
Xu Anran hesitated for a long time before she opened her mouth aggrievedly. Her magnanimous and forgiving look made people’s hearts ache.
“I know it’s my sister’s birthday today. I’m the one who took over her birthday and identity. If we don’t celebrate my sister’s birthday, she’ll definitely blame me and think that I’m the one who didn’t let you two join her—”
“How can you be blamed for this?!” Xia Yunlou interrupted her. She was burning with rage. “It’s clearly Qiao Xi who stole your guests, yet she still has the cheek to blame you? How can she be so shameless?!”
Xu Anran said with tears in her eyes, “Mom, I know you love me and are unwilling to announce that I’m your adopted daughter. But my sister has already spread the news. Now that everyone knows about it, how can I still have any reason to hog you all?
“Don’t blame her for this. She… She just wants to join this family. After all… she’s your biological daughter.”
After saying this, Xia Yunlou was even more furious. “How could she do this?! I don’t have such a selfish daughter!”
Xu Anran teared up and said, “Mom, I’ve never thought of snatching my sister away from you. I just want to stay by your side and be your daughter. Am I really wrong? I don’t want others to misunderstand me, so let’s go to my sister’s birthday together.”
Xia Yunlou still felt a little awkward in her heart, but after thinking carefully about Xu Anran’s words, she felt that they made sense. If they didn’t attend Qiao Xi’s birthday banquet, outsiders would think that the Xu family was targeting her.
After all, Qiao Xi knew so many big shots. If people knew that the Xu family treated their own daughter harshly, it wouldn’t be good for them.
Xia Yunlou was silent for a while before she finally said helplessly, “Alright. Since you’ve said so, I’ll listen to you. Xi Xi is so willful, but you’re so sensible. You’re truly my good daughter.”
