Chapter 172: Xiao Yan and Su Meng’s Reunion
Xiao Yan glanced at Ning Shu coldly, then got into the car.
Ning Shu couldn’t be bothered to care and simply drove back to the little neighborhood. Xiao Yan’s first reaction upon entering the house was exactly the same as that of the Xiao family’s parents.
The old Xiao family couple were very moved and happy to see Xiao Yan, and immediately told him about all of the hateful things Ning Shu did. Xiao Yan’s eyes turned even colder as he glared at Ning Shu. When he heard that she had made his dad kneel, his eyes became filled with murderous intent.
Ning Shu just laughed coldly in response. Did he really think that all the women in the world loved him and that it was natural for them to tolerate him?
There was a gloomy air all around Xiao Yan as if he was a water dragon trapped onshore that had lost all hope. He locked himself in his room and refused to eat. No matter how Master and Madame Xiao tried to persuade him, he wouldn’t budge.
Ning Shu looked at the food in front of the door. Since he refused to eat, then so be it. So she dumped the food into the trash can.
Madame Xiao was so angered by Ning Shu’s actions that her breathing was affected, but she still didn’t dare to say anything. After all, the Xiao family was currently completely relying on Ning Shu’s money. If they angered her and she refused to give them money, they’d have to starve again.
There was one time that they had starved for an entire day. Madame Xiao had to drop her pride in the end and ask Ning Shu for money so that they could finally get something to eat.
That was why, every time, Madame Xiao and Master Xiao would look at Ning Shu with loath-filled gazes as if she was their tormentor, but wouldn’t dare to say anything.
When Madame Xiao saw Ning Shu throw away her son’s food though, she couldn’t stop herself from saying, “Su Ran, how could you be so cruel? How could you threw away his food? He hasn’t eaten even once since he got out!”
Ning Shu gave a cold humph. “Since he doesn’t want to eat, then he can just starve.”
“You…” Madame Xiao looked at Ning Shu. “You’ll face retribution.”
Ning Shu replied coldly, “Whether I’ll face retribution or not isn’t something that I’ll know about, but I know that you’ll soon face retribution.”
When Madame Xiao heard this, she trembled. However, since she still wanted to get money from Ning Shu, she could only stifle her anger.
In the end, Xiao Yan couldn’t take the hunger anymore and came out to eat. Ning Shu personally handed him food, but Xiao Yan responded by laughing coldly and saying disdainfully, “Su Ran, no matter how you try to curry favor with me, my opinion of you won’t change.”
Then he took the bowl from Ning Shu’s hands like he was doing her a favor before starting to eat. However, because he rushed too much in eating, he started choking. His current appearance, with his bald head… It was really quite wretched.
As Ning Shu watched, she smiled coldly. You should pray that you’ll still be able to stay well after eating this meal.
When Su Meng heard that Xiao Yan had gotten out, she came over with her two children. When she saw Xiao Yan, her lips trembled, then she threw herself into his arms. As she reached out to stroke Xiao Yan’s bald head, she said in a trembling voice, “You’ve suffered.”
Ning Shu was almost about to die from laughter. Why was this scene so damned comedic?
Li Xiuwen was standing not far away. His expression was very complicated as he watched the two hug. His facial color changed so much that Ning Shu couldn’t even find the adjectives to describe it.
The two children started crying as they held onto Xiao Yan, so Xiao Yan was busily coaxing all of them.
Xiao Yan said to Su Meng earnestly, “I’ll pull myself together. I have to, so that you and the children have someone to rely on.”
Tears streamed down Su Meng’s face as she covered her mouth and shook her head. Xiao Yan was flustered by her response. “I won’t let you and the children suffer, I promise.”
Su Meng still continued crying silently. Then she glanced towards Ning Shu with an agonized expression.
Xiao Yan noticed Su Meng’s glance and immediately turned to shout at Ning Shu. “You malicious woman, what did you do to Su Meng!?”
