Chapter 196: Return to the Shen Family
It’s been a few days and Shen Xiaoru’s wounds still haven’t completely gone away. She looks pale and sallow.
And unlike that arrogance from that day at the restaurant, seeing Muyan today, she immediately reveals an expression that looks like she’s about to cry, “Muyan-sister, older sister wasn’t good a few days ago, it was really just too unexpected and older sister was very pleasantly surprised that you’re still alive, that’s the reason why I got a little carried away. Can you forgive this older sister?”
Muyan unenthusiastically looks at her, then throws out the word, “No.”
Shen Xiaoru chokes.
Her face twists for a moment, and it’s quite a while before she could calm herself down. Her eyes become more tearful and distressed as she says: “Little sister Muyan, I know you’re still blaming this older sister but after all is said and done, we’re still one family. Daddy and older brother have continued to think about you all these years. If they know that you’re still alive, they would surely feel very happy! Muyan-sister, you should hurry and return to the Shen family with me!”
Hearing the words “Daddy and older brother”, Muyan looks distracted for an instant.
She spared this Shen Xiaoru’s dog life,
Precisely because she wants to know the situation of her brother and adoptive father.
And she still wants to know what her good foster mother had done in the past.
In her past life, because of the death of her unborn child, she hated the Su family, hated her foster mother, and thus, she also hated her foster father and brother.
Her adoptive father had still treated her kindly, so she didn’t exact vengeance. But since then, she didn’t hear or inquire about them, and they were estranged.
However, just three years later, she received news of her foster father’s death, then after another year, even her brother was unexpectedly killed during his travels.
It was a long time afterwards that Muyan also learned that her adoptive father and brother were looking for her.
In that previous life, what happened in the Shen family?
Shen Xiaoru sees Muyan’s apathetic appearance, and she can’t help but gnash her teeth.
She finally shows her biggest weapon, “Jun Muyan, you should know, father is seriously ill right now. In the end, you were still raised by the Shen family for so many years, shouldn’t you return to the Shen family and take a look at father, and offer your filial piety?”
“Father is seriously ill?” Muyan’s expression is indifferent, coldly looking at the other.
Shen Xiaoru is really afraid of that Muyan from a few days ago, and she suddenly shivers from head to toe.
But she soon adjusts her expression, and wipes the tears from her eyes: “Yes, father has been sick for a long time, don’t you want to go back and take a look? Jun Muyan, although father doesn’t have any blood relationship with you, he still raised you for so many years, you can’t be so cold-blooded and heartless!”
Muyan slowly relaxes. She leans back into her chair, and drawls: “Alright, I’ll go back with you.”
“You really agree to go back to the the Shen family with me?!” Shen Xiaoru excitedly jumps out from her chair.
“After three days, wait for me at the gates of Xia’an.”
Obtaining an affirmative reply from Muyan, Shen Xiaoru excitedly leaves.
As soon as she walks out of the Drugstore, the excitement on her face is replaced by bitter resentment and elation.
Hahaha… Jun Muyan, so what if you’re now beautiful and can do alchemy*?
I, Shen Xiaoru, can still run circles around you and deceive you.
Wait until you return to the Shen family with me, hehe… what’s waiting for you is a fate more miserable than hell!
Jun Muyan, your good days are over.
My hatred and humiliation a few days ago, I will return them back to you a thousand times!
Three days later, a carriage quietly parks in front of Junji Drugstore.
Ru Yan, Old Tao, Chen Qingfeng, and the Ink Camp are all respectfully standing in front of that carriage.
“Miss, after a few days, once we’ve finished dealing with the matters of the drugstore, we will catch up with you to Tianyuan City. During this period, only Yan Haotian and Haitang will be by your’s and the little gongzi’s side. Please take care!”
T/N: *It’s possible that Shen Xiaoru doesn’t know that making draughts is still not alchemy.
