Chapter 34: The Real and Fake Yun Xi
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Yun Xi stood outside the iron gates as she watched Liang Xiuqin slowly walk out of the house. It felt like it had only been yesterday when her face had been ruined by sulfuric acid.
In this lifetime, Yun Xi watched her own mother, who was even eviler than Snow White’s stepmother. As her grin grew wider, her eyes became even darker.
Since Yun Xi was 17 now, Liang Xiuqin was much younger than she had been the year Yun Xi had “died.” She was full of the pride and smugness that came with being an official’s wife.
She had been pampered and had lived in luxury for so many years, so she was naturally no comparison to a countryside woman like Chen Lixue.
This sought-after “rich wife” was actually a countryside woman herself.
No wonder Chen Lixue still longed for Yun Yuanfeng, despite having been married to Liang Weimin for so many years.
If it hadn’t been for Liang Xiuqin’s incredible means during Yun Xi’s previous lifetime, Chen Lixue would’ve really climbed over a wall to get to him!
After all, Chen Lixue had always believed that Liang Xiuqin had been the one who’d robbed her of a luxurious life as a wealthy wife.
Yun Xi could still recall what had happened when her grandfather had invited Chen Lixue to attend her adult ceremony all those years ago. This had been out of respect for Chen Lixue having raised Yun Xi.
During the banquet, Yun Xi hadn’t understood Chen Lixue’s gaze toward Yun Yuanfeng all those years ago, but even now, she still had to pretend she didn’t understand.
She had to leave this fishing line in hopes of getting a big catch.
Liang Xiuqin hadn’t seen Yun Xi for over ten years, so she didn’t know what she’d grown up to look like. However, Liang Xinyi was completely aware.
Liang Xinyi looked like she had seen a ghost when she saw Yun Xi standing unscathed at the door. She was frightened that she squeezed Liang Xiuqin’s arm tightly.
Liang Xiuqin was shocked by her reaction!
She instantly understood that the person standing outside was none other than the star of death she loathed to see more than anyone else!
Her hand slowly tightened around Liang Xinyi’s again and again, her body trembling uncontrollably as she looked at Yun Xi with a somewhat cruel expression.
Everything was just about to improve, and her beautiful plan hadn’t even begun, yet this star of death already came knocking on her door!
She was truly a star of death, who simply wouldn’t let Liang Xiuqin live happily!
Liang Xiuqin inhaled deeply several times as she repeatedly reminded herself to calm down. After a long time, she finally composed her head.
“Don’t be scared! I won’t allow her to enter this household!”
Liang Xiuqin patted the back of Liang Xinyi’s hand, and like they shared the same enemy, they instantly formed an alliance.
Yun Xi spied Liang Xiuqin’s protective action toward Liang Xinyi, and her mind instantly understood. Her pink lips curled into a sarcastic arc.
Liang Xiuqin’s reaction already gave her the answer. It looked like she had no plan to show her any mercy in the future.
The timing had been perfect since everyone was heading off to work.
Yun Xi looked around at all the neighbors around her and began to smile subtly.
She turned around and began shouting at Liang Xiuqin inside the courtyard, “Mom! I’m Yun Xi! I’m back!”
Using such a loud voice, it was like she wanted nothing more but to allow everyone in the villa complex hear her!
Liang Xiuqin’s heart dropped instantly.
With a darkened expression, she quickly marched to the entrance and glared coldly at Yun Xi through the iron gates. There wasn’t a trace of warmth on her elegant face.
Instead, there was growing disdain and disgust.
There was even hatred that couldn’t be contained, and this was hatred that seeped out from her bones!
“Wretched girl, where did you crawl out from? Who are you? Don’t come shouting at our door! Who let you in here? Hurry up and scram!”
“Mom! I’m Yun Xi! I’m back!” Yun Xi continued to politely smile at her.
Though her heart felt bitter, she had already suffered enough in her previous lifetime. She only felt indifferent and ruthless in this current lifetime.
“What do you mean, Yun Xi?! This is my real daughter, Yun Xi. I don’t know you!”
“Mom! You’ve made a mistake! That’s my cousin, Liang Xinyi. She’s Uncle’s daughter, and she was the one who pushed me down a cliff so she could replace me and come home. She’s fake! I’m the real Yun Xi!”
“What do you mean, fake?! I don’t understand what you’re talking about! How could I even mistake my own daughter for someone else?! You’re just some wretched girl who crawled out of God-knows-where. Did you even check the place before coming here to swindle us?! This is the villa complex; you can’t do as you please here!”
