Song Ci smiled. Pang Xiaohui really knew how to twist words around.
After Song Peihan saw that Lu Gan was disabled, she did not want to marry him. At the same time, she did not want to offend the Lu family. Hence, Song Ci was supposed to be her replacement.
When “Song Ci” found out about this matter, she wanted to strike first and gain the upper hand. Thus, she immediately looked for Lu Gan and humiliated him so he would reject her. She did not want the Song family’s plan to succeed.
Anyway, Song Ci already had a plan in mind. Otherwise, she would not have let this woman in.
Song Ci calmly drank a mouthful of water and said, “Aunty, you’re right. The Lu family is great. Thus, my little sister should be prioritized in this matter. After all, she is more outstanding than me. She can sing and dance, so she’s more suitable to marry into the Lu family.”
Pang Xiaohui quickly said, “You’re the elder sister. How can your little sister get married before you? Moreover, your father, Peihan, and I have already given our blessings. You can get married without any worries!”
“I’m an actress… Lu Gan is also crippled, so…”
Song Ci looked hesitant.
Pang Xiaohui rolled her eyes and thought to herself, ‘You really think that you’re an actress?’
Nonetheless, she smiled and said, “What does that have to do with anything? You’re an actress, but are you as wealthy as the Lu family? Your father and I have already decided on this matter. The Lu family has also agreed. You just need to marry Lu Gan and get your marriage certificate.”
Song Ci listened to Pang Xiaohui’s persuasion and the subtle threat in her sentences. She smiled and said, “I don’t care about you and my father’s decision. It’s my marriage. If I refuse, what can you do? What can the Lu family do?”
Upon hearing this, Pang Xiaohui’s expression finally changed. She refused to waste any more time on Song Ci.
“You’re not willing? You have to take care of a child and so does Lu Gan. The two of you are fated to be together. There’s no reason to refute! Furthermore, your father agreed to let you return to the Song family if you married Lu Gan. Isn’t that what you always wanted?”
“I think you remembered wrongly because of your dementia!”
Song Ci could no longer pretend either. She said slowly, “You don’t have to talk so much. I actually know about the original agreement between Song Peihan and the Lu family. You don’t want Song Peihan to suffer because Lu Gan is disabled now. Simultaneously, you dared not offend the Lu family. That’s why you want me to marry him, right?”
“What are you saying?”
Pang Xiaohui clenched her broken bracelet. She looked at Song Ci as if she was a poisonous snake. Since when did Song Ci become so smart? She used to be very gullible.
“Give me 50 million dollars. I’ll marry Lu Gan right away.”
“In your dreams!”
Pang Xiaohui refused and stood up. She wanted to tear this little b*tch apart.
“You want me to give you money when you’re marrying into such a rich family?”
Song Ci spread her hands innocently.
“Then let Song Peihan marry him!”
Pang Xiaohui gritted her teeth as she stared at Song Ci. The latter was really different. However, she would do anything for her daughter. Only a piece of trash like Song Ci deserved a cripple.
“50 million dollars. Go and tell Lu Gan tomorrow that you insist on marrying him. This has nothing to do with Peihan!”
“Deal!” said Song Ci as she stretched out her hand. She added, “I’ll meet up with Lu Gan once I receive the money. My brother is still here, so I won’t be able to escape or anything of that sort.”
Pang Xiaohui wrote a check and threw it at Song Ci. She glared at her fiercely and said, “You better keep your word. Remember, even your mother is no match for me, much less you!”
Song Ci took the check and raised her eyes slightly.
Pang Xiaohui snorted and left.
Song Yujin also slowly closed the door. When he heard the woman talk about his mother, he could not help but clenched his fist.
The next morning, Song Ci sent Song Yujin to school. Then, she packed up and was prepared to see Lu Gan. She had not forgotten about meeting Lu Gan’s parents today.
Lu Gan arrived earlier than expected.
He pulled up in a limited-edition Rolls-Royce. The man was certainly richer than most people.
Song Ci did not waste any time. She opened the door and sat in the back seat.
Lu Gan looked at her from head to toe. Song Ci’s long hair was tied up. She was wearing a neat and elegant cream-colored long dress. Her eyebrows were perfect and she was smiling faintly. It was as if spring had come and the flowers were blooming.
“How do I look? I won’t embarrass you, right?”
Song Ci asked after she noticed that Lu Gan was gazing at her.
Lu Gan smiled and took out a necklace.
“This is for you. A gift from your fiancé, I’ll help you put it on.”
Song Ci did not refuse and she leaned closer. This caused her face to turn red. Supposedly, as an actress, she was just acting. Yet, why was she blushing?
