Chapter 38 A Tramp
Ten minutes later, Li Qianluo realized what Si Jinheng meant.
In the villa.
"Sir, Madam, you are back home." Upon entering the villa, Li Qianluo felt something weird with the ambiance as well as the look on Mrs. Du.
Si Jinheng held her hand and went into the hall as if nothing had happened. On a European-style sofa there sat a woman, who looked like only in her thirties.
She was in a white suit with a pair of cropped loose trousers and peep-toe pumps in a similar color. Her black long hair was worn up, presenting an elegant and noble look.
But her newly-made semi permanent brown eyebrows wrinkled up and her lips wearing expensive scarlet lipstick compressed tightly, which revealed her terrible mood.
"Mother, this is my wife, Qianluo. Qianluo, say hello to mother." Si Jinheng held the hand of Li Qianluo tightly, as if making a vow.
"Mother, how do you do? I am Qianluo." Li Qianluo was a bit nervous, for the word "mother" felt a bit unfamiliar to her ever since her mother passed away.
"Do not call me mother!" Mu Ruoyan rolled her eyes at Li Qianluo disdainfully, "Heng, how can you bring this tramp home?"
A tramp?! Was she talking about her? Li Qianluo was confused about being referred to as a tramp. She looked at Si Jinheng innocently, who put on a long face.
"Mother, Li Qianluo is my wife. I hope you can show respect to her!" Li Qianluo looked at the man beside her, feeling touched. She was really grateful with what he said!
"I do not recognize her to be the daughter-in-law of the Si family! We already have a daughter-in-law, and it is not this tramp!" Mu Ruoyan was completely convinced that Li Qianluo had seduced her son. Otherwise, how could her son suddenly give up on Yawei, his fiancée who he had loved for over a decade!
"Mother, Qianluo bought you a gift." Si Jinheng turned a deaf ear to what she said and gave Li Qianluo a nudge, who then took out the earrings from the bag immediately.
"Mother, as this is the first time when we meet, I don't know what you like. So I buy you..." Without checking the gift from Li Qianluo, Mu Ruoyan slapped it right off her hand.
Looking at the discarded gift, Li Qianluo felt a bit distressed. She took a deep breath and was about to say something when Si Jinheng said in a cold tone: "You are unreasonable. Let's go upstairs!"
"Heng, how dare you say that to me for this tramp!" Mu Ruoyan was astonished.
Ignoring what Mu Ruoyan said, Si Jinheng grabbed Li Qianluo's hand and went upstairs without looking back. Upon reaching the room Li Qianluo lived in, she saw that all her things were thrown about outside the room in a mess.
... How much did this mother-in-law dislike her? Who was the daughter-in-law in her heart?
But, she should keep silent and let Si Jinheng solve it. "Mrs. Du." Si Jinheng summoned Mrs. Du upstairs at once, who was followed by Mu Ruoyan.
"Move my wife's stuff into my room." Without a glance at Mu Ruoyan, Si Jinheng pulled Li Qianluo into the room.
"Si Jinheng! How can you let this woman live in Weiwei's room and clean away all the things of Weiwei? You are totally a disappointment!" Mu Ruoyan called her son in his full name for the first time. It seemed that she was really mad.
Weiwei? That name reminded Li Qianluo of the name "Wei" on his Wechat contact list that day. Could it be the same one?
"I am even more disappointed in you!" Si Jinheng paused his pace and then entered the room without looking back.
"You! Mrs. Du, don't move these things. Just throw them away from this house!" Looking at the tightly closed door, Mu Ruoyan was in such a fury that her hands even trembled. If she could, she really wanted to throw away this woman, too!
He had always been an obedient son. But the idea of him marrying some woman without first informing his family was outrageous.
She had made investigations and knew that this woman was quite well-off before, but she had since then lost everything. How could such a poor woman deserve her son? This woman must be rather complicated. She would not let this woman stay in her family, not even for one more day!
Heng must be infatuated with her for the moment. Oh, no, she must call Weiwei and inform her to come to D city at once!
In the end, all the things of Li Qianluo were thrown away by Mu Ruoyan. Si Jinheng got changed in his room and went out for dinner with Li Qianluo. Then, they arrived at a mall, to renew all her stuff.
"Si Jinheng, I can move out first. There is no need to strain your relationship with your mother for me." After all, they did not get married for love, but only for what they needed. How could Si Jinheng be so silly as to fall out with his family for an unimportant woman?...
"Go and try on these clothes." Without paying attention to what she said, Si Jinheng promptly picked some clothes for her and pushed her into a fitting room.
All the clothes, shoes and underclothes that Li Qianluo had tried on were packed up. Si Jinheng sent for Yun Qi to send all the things back to his room in the villa.
Seeing several people shuttling in and out including Yun Qi and Mrs. Du, Mu Ruoyan simmered with rage. She grabbed a cosmetic set from Yun Qi's hand and was going to throw it out.
Yun Qi reminded: "Madam, boss has said that Li Qianluo was his lawful wife. These were bought with his money. He will buy new ones to make up for whatever you have thrown away!" Yun Qi passed on what Si Jinheng said, in a neither haughty nor humble way.
Upon hearing that, Mu Ruoyan, with glaring eyes, smiled suddenly. "OK, go ahead!"
Returning back to her room, Mu Ruoyan picked up her phone and made a call.
"Hello, Aunty!" The tender voice on the line made Mu Ruoyan feel much relieved.
"Weiwei, come to D city as quickly as possible! You silly girl. You even don't know that your fiancé has been taken away by another woman." Mo Yawei, who was removing her makeup in a dressing room, was shocked at what Mu Ruoyan said. The alarm in her heart went off immediately.
Last time, he replied via WeChat that it was not him. Could it be the same woman?
"What's going on, Aunty?" Mo Yawei waved her hand to send her assistant out.
"Weiwei, you silly girl. Heng...alas. He had married a tramp without informing us!" How was she supposed to spin his son's betrayal to his fiancée?
Married?! Mo Yawei stood up from the chair in a rush, with her exquisite makeup twisted at once. Did her fiancé who she had loved for over a decade marry another woman?
"Aunty...are you sure?" Mo Yawei checked again in a light voice, constraining her distress. She really wanted the aunty to say that it was only a joke. "Weiwei...If it were not for my father-in-law's investigation about Si Jinheng's recent life, none of us would know that." When her father-in-law's assistant exposed this, the whole family was thrown into a turmoil!
As the most important successor of the family, he shouldn't have made that big decision all by himself.
