Yin Jinglin snorted. “Love? Since Old Master Xia didn’t like my grandmother to begin with, why did he ask to marry her back then? Was it for the Yin family’s power or—”
“Shut up! Shut up immediately! How did your Yin family educate your juniors? How dare you make things difficult for your elders on such an occasion? You’re really too much!” Old Madam Xia roared heart-wrenchingly, wishing she could stuff Yin Jinglin’s mouth.
In the past, perhaps some people knew that she was a mistress, but because of the Xia family, no one could spread the news. However, now that the reporters were doing live broadcasts, everyone would know that she was not the noble madam of the Xia family at all but an unpresentable mistress. She had worked hard for so many years to change her background and image. Now, it was all ruined by Qiao Xi and Yin Jinglin.
At this moment, Yin Lianxin slowly took a few steps forward. Her body was filled with pressure, and her aura was fully released. Wherever her gaze landed, everyone’s breathing stopped. Finally, her gaze landed on Xia Cheng and Old Madam Xia. She frowned in disgust as if looking at them would dirty her eyes. She said in a low voice, “The Yin family isn’t considered outstanding when it comes to educating the younger generation, but at least I can guarantee that every child in the Yin family has a good character. Meanwhile, the children raised by your Xia family are all scheming. Are you worthy of talking to me about education?”
Xia Mengyan clenched her fists tightly. She knew that Yin Lianxin was hinting at her. Before she could retort, the surroundings were already filled with everyone’s restless voices. “A mistress still has the cheek to talk to the first wife about educating the younger generation? Moreover, the Yin family is a century-old family. Old Madam Yin was carefully nurtured since she was young and later became the head of the Yin family. The two of them are simply worlds apart. She actually has the cheek to compare herself to Old Madam Yin?”
The anger in Old Madam Xia’s heart burned fiercely. Her eyes almost popped out. She was about to curse when she was pulled back by Xia Mengyan. Xia Mengyan was also forcefully suppressing her anger. Her nails dug into her palms, and the sharp pain reminded her to be rational.
Xia Mengyan calmed down for a long time before slowly looking up. Her eyes were filled with tears as she said pitifully, “Old Madam Yin, although the matter back then is over, we still owe you an apology. I apologize on behalf of Grandma, but today is Gu Corporation’s banquet. We can’t cause trouble here. It’ll affect President Gu as well. Let’s not quarrel anymore. We’ll talk after the banquet, alright?”
After that, she looked at Qiao Xi and advised earnestly, “Xi Xi, you’ve grown up. You can’t rely on the love of your elders to fool around anymore.”
Qiao Xi raised her eyebrows as if she did not expect Xia Mengyan to suddenly mention her, and a trace of surprise flashed through her eyes.
“Xi Xi, today is Gu Corporation’s big day. President Gu still has to do an interview later. You’ve already caused a scene for so long and affected the progress of the banquet. If you affect the interview again, President Gu will be unhappy.
“You’re already married now. As President Gu’s wife, you have to think about him. You can’t always do whatever you want for yourself. Aren’t you being a little selfish by doing this?”
Hearing Xia Mengyan’s persuasion, Qiao Xi dug her ears impatiently. How annoying! She was nagging like an old lady at the entrance of the village!
At this moment, the reporters bribed by the Xia family received Xia Mengyan’s gaze. They immediately stood up and berated loudly, “Mrs. Gu! You clearly know that today is an important day for Gu Corporation, yet you still brought so many people to cause trouble. Do you know how much impact this will have on Gu Corporation? Do you know how much loss there’ll be?”
“It’s been decades, yet you’re still talking about the past and making everyone feel awkward. The reporters don’t even have time to interview President Gu. As Mrs. Gu, you should put President Gu first. However, you only care about your own happiness and don’t care about President Gu’s reputation at all. You’re not worthy to be Mrs. Gu at all. Only a virtuous woman like Miss Xia is most suitable to be Mrs. Gu.”
Xia Mengyan lowered her eyes shyly. These reporters were very understanding. It seemed that their money was not spent in vain.
Yin Lianxin glanced at Xia Mengyan, her eyes filled with disgust. “Shameless!”
Xia Mengyan’s body trembled as if she had been greatly insulted. A tear fell from the corner of her eye. She was really pitiful!
The reporters hurriedly retorted, “Old Madam Yin, as an elder, how can you say that Miss Xia is shameless? A certain someone doesn’t have the ability, but she just insists on sitting in the position of Mrs. Gu. In my opinion, Miss Xia is the most suitable person for President Gu. If Mrs. Gu knows what’s good for her, she’d better abdicate her position and give up her position!”
