Chapter 39: Get Out of the Jiang Family!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Yes, Sister. As the eldest daughter of our family, you should know that Father was the one who earned the money for the food, clothes, and accommodation that you have now. Where did the money come from? Our company, isn’t it? You used the family’s money, so isn’t it your duty to do something for the family now?” Yuexi said. “Father also gave you his sub card to use freely.”
Jiang Xun looked at Yuexi mockingly. “If you’re talking about spending the family’s money, haven’t you spent much more than me? For 11 years, I’ve never had the opportunity to spend much money in the countryside, but that’s definitely not the case for you. Since you’re so thoughtful, why don’t you think of a way to approach Qin Mufeng!”
“I…If I had a way, I would definitely go,” Yuexi said aggrievedly. “But I don’t know him! I’m definitely not as close to him as you are, Sister.”
“Look at your sister! Can’t you learn from her?!” Chengye was extremely depressed. Why couldn’t Yuexi have been the one to be close to Qin Mufeng instead of this troublemaker?!
“No!” Jiang Xun said defiantly.
Chengye stood up abruptly and stared at Jiang Xun with warning eyes. “I raised you and gave you a sub-card for you to swipe at will. You won’t even do such a small thing?”
“You enjoy the comfortable life our company has brought to you at home, so you have to contribute to the family. Otherwise, how can you enjoy this?” Chengye said coldly.
“What contribution did Yuexi make to the family? She’s enjoyed her life a lot more than I have. I’ve been in the countryside for 11 years, but I didn’t enjoy any benefits from my family.” Jiang Xun sneered. “Double standards, much?”
“Yuexi is different,” Chengye said without thinking.
“How can you compare with Yuexi?” Nianzhen sneered. How could Chengye compare his relationship with Jiang Xun to his father-daughter relationship with Yuexi?
Chengye gritted his teeth and asked in a stern voice, “I’ll ask you one last time. Are you going to look for Qin Mufeng?”
“No!” Jiang Xun snapped. “How many times do I have to say it? I’m not going! If your business with Qin Mufeng doesn’t work out, it’s because you don’t have the ability to begin with, so don’t blame me!” Jiang Xun rolled her eyes. “Why don’t you reflect on yourself?”
Chengye’s eyes widened in anger at her words. His fingers that were pointing at Jiang Xun were trembling with anger. “If you don’t go, then get out of the Jiang Family!”
“Ha!” Jiang Xun laughed mockingly. She didn’t care about Chengye’s threat at all. It wasn’t the first time he had threatened her like this. When had she ever been afraid?
“Don’t think that I’m just saying this.” Chengye’s face was filled with coldness. His jaw tightened for a few seconds before he spoke again. “This time, if you don’t agree to my request, get lost! Leave this house. I won’t give you a single cent for your college tuition and living expenses!”
Jiang Xun didn’t have any source of income. Without his money, she couldn’t live outside at all.
Previously, he had been worried that Jiang Xun would embarrass him if she started spreading rumors outside, but it didn’t mean that he would always be threatened in the same way.
He wanted to let her know that without his support, she wouldn’t be able to survive outside!
In the end, she would come crawling back in a sorry state and obediently listen to him. And when that happened, she wouldn’t be able to threaten him by leaving home in the future.
“Ha!” Jiang Xun sneered and went straight upstairs to her room.
Chengye sneered. He knew that Jiang Xun wouldn’t leave. Was she so frightened by his words that she ran back to her room to hide?
Nianzhen heard the sound of Jiang Xun’s bedroom door closing upstairs, then said in a low voice, “Jiang Xun is not close to us, so she’s not willing to do something for our family. If it were Yuexi, we wouldn’t have to tell her; she’d have done something on her own initiative.”
“How can she be compared to Yuexi?” Chengye said the same thing as Nianzhen.
At the same time, Jiang Xun returned to her bedroom and quickly changed into the same clothes she’d worn the day she came here.
She took out her school bag from the cabinet, which was also from Wenping High School, and simply packed the things she had brought on the first day.
She didn’t have many things to begin with. When she came to the capital, her school bag had been mostly filled with books. Now that she wasn’t bringing them along, her bag was relatively flat.
Jiang Xun carried her schoolbag with her and took the sub card that Chengye had given her and went downstairs to the living room.
She slapped the card on the coffee table. “I’ll return this to you.”
With her bag in hand, she walked to the google.
“Jiang Xun!” Jixuan could not care less about his image and immediately chased her to the door to stop her. “Are you really going to leave?”
“Of course.” She nodded. “Goodbye.”
Jiang Xun left quickly, leaving without looking back.
Jixuan was dumbfounded. Looking at the closed door behind Jiang Xun, he opened his mouth and turned around to call out, “Dad, are you really going to let her leave just like that?”
Chengye’s expression was ugly. He didn’t expect her to leave just like that.
She left in the middle of the night without even waiting for the sun to rise and had even returned his sub card to him on her own initiative.
“Let her go.” Since Chengye had already said all that, he couldn’t take his words back now, or his image would be ruined. “Besides, she doesn’t have any money, so she’ll come crawling back soon. She won’t be able to last more than a few days outside.”
Nianzhen didn’t want Chengye to be soft-hearted, so she agreed. “Yeah, how can it be so easy to live alone outside?”
“Accommodation, meals, and transportation are the most basic needs. However, Jiang Xun has no source of income, so it’ll be hard for her to deal with even those,” Nianzhen said. “Letting her go out and experience the harsh realities of life will also be good for her. She’ll realize just how much our family has given her. She usually stays at home, spends her money on food and clothes, and swipes the secondary card you gave her without thinking much. Now that she’s going out alone, she should know how difficult it is. It’ll also stop her from constantly threatening you with leaving home in the future.”
Nianzhen’s words really hit the nail on the head.
“You’re right.” Chengye nodded. At the thought of Jiang Xun, his temper flared up again. “I’ve been giving her too much leniency.”
However, Jiang Xun’s digital wallet had some money in it. It was a reward given by the police for her actions in the capital, but she hadn’t had an opportunity to use it, so she’d kept the money stored there.
It was only 2,000 yuan in total, so it couldn’t cover her tuition fees and living expenses for too long.
But she could still afford room and board for the next few days.
Jiang Xun searched for a suitable place on her phone as she walked on the road.
The room prices for hotels in the capital were high, so she could only stay in a chain of budget hotels costing 400 to 500 yuan a night. The accommodation conditions were very ordinary, and not necessarily clean.
