Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
“Xia Cheng, you just said that Xi Xi is the third party? Do you dare to repeat it in front of me?”
Old Madam Yin was the head of the Yin family. She had a domineering and arrogant aura. Even a simple question like that could make everyone break out in a cold sweat. Xia Cheng could not withstand her sharp aura and could only lower his head without saying anything.
“What did Xi Xi do wrong? The engagement between Yunqiu and Eldest Miss Lu was naturally for her daughter. How could it be for the granddaughter of a mistress?”
The moment that was said, it was like a thunderclap exploded in everyone’s ears. The granddaughter of a mistress? The mistress Yin Lianxin was talking about was Old Madam Xia?
Xia Cheng’s face was livid. After a few seconds of silence, he gritted his teeth and said, “Yin Lianxin, watch your words!”
As soon as he finished speaking, Qiao Xi suddenly sneered and crossed her arms. Her gaze was cold and filled with disdain. “Old Master Xia, are you angry from embarrassment? Isn’t that the truth?”
Yin Jinglin mocked, “In Grandpa’s heart, there’s only Old Madam Xia and our cousin, Xia Mengyan. The children and grandchildren of the first wife are not important to him at all.”
Everyone was dumbfounded. They did not expect to hear such shocking news. After all, the marriage between the Yin and Xia families happened decades ago. Moreover, ever since Yin Lianxin and Xia Cheng divorced, the two of them had never contacted each other again. Hence, only a small number of people knew that the two of them had once been husband and wife.
Yin Jinglin did not want to save Xia Cheng any dignity either. He said helplessly, “Old Madam Xia, back then, you ruined Grandpa and Grandma’s marriage and became a mistress. Our Yin family didn’t bicker with you over this, but how could you have the cheek to ask Xi Xi to call you ‘Grandma’? Cousin Xi Xi is very close to Grandma Xia, so she naturally can’t call you ‘Grandma’.
“Don’t be in a rush to retort. Back then, my grandmother married the entire Xia family. Everyone in Shengdu knows that she’s the legitimate mistress of the Xia family, but your son is even older than Aunt Yunqiu. Doesn’t that explain everything?”
The son of Old Madam Xia and Xia Cheng was older than Xia Yunqiu, which meant that Xia Cheng had an affair and secretly had an illegitimate child with Old Madam Xia. It was enough to confirm Old Madam Xia’s identity as a mistress.
Old Madam Xia did not expect the most unbearable thing in the past to be exposed. She was instantly embarrassed and wanted to dig a hole to crawl into. She wished she could escape from the banquet hall immediately. Her body could not help but tremble as she fell onto the chair beside her.
Everyone looked at all of this in disbelief. It turned out that Old Madam Xia was a mistress! In other words, Xia Mengyan’s father was an illegitimate child? Xia Mengyan’s image as a perfect daughter was instantly shattered.
Decades ago, the Xia family was still a run-down family. As the daughter of the Yin family, Yin Lianxin could be said to be extremely glorious. When the two of them got married, Xia Cheng married into the Yin family. As a result, he obtained many benefits from the Yin family. However, after he took advantage of the situation, he cheated. If it were not for the Yin family’s funds and connections, how could the Xia family be at its peak now?
Xia Cheng was ungrateful. Not only did he cheat on Yin Lianxin, but he even forced his granddaughter to call the mistress ‘Grandma’. Wasn’t this making things difficult for her?
Yin Lianxin walked forward and grabbed Qiao Xi’s hand. Her cold gaze landed on Old Madam Xia as a trace of disdain seeped out of her nose. “Are you worthy of scolding my granddaughter? You’re just a mistress. Who gave you the guts? Xia Cheng?”
Old Madam Xia lowered her head and broke out in a cold sweat. Faced with Yin Lianxin’s question, she did not dare to say a word.
Yin Jinglin quickly echoed, “Some people are just so shameless. Back then, she seduced a man to climb up the social ladder. Now, she’s coveting Aunt Yunqiu’s assets and even wants to bully my cousin. Her skin is thicker than city walls!”
Xia Mengyan looked at Old Madam Xia, who was trembling all over. Tears trickled down her face as she choked. “Cousin, how can you say that about Grandma? That’s all in the past. Now…”
“She has the cheek to do it, but I can’t call her out on it? Besides, she’s not my grandmother. Do I have the obligation to respect her?” Yin Jinglin chuckled, his eyes filled with coldness.
“Moreover, it seems that Old Madam Xia scolded Xi Xi first, so I merely counterattacked. She’s just an immoral mistress. How dare she scold the daughter of the Yin family? How laughable!”
Old Madam Xia’s legs went weak, and her expression was ferocious. If the reporters were not around, she would definitely not have swallowed her anger!
Xia Mengyan hurriedly calmed Old Madam Xia down, then said with a sad expression, “Cousin, what exactly do you want?! Do you want to force my grandmother to her death?”
