Everyone thought that Yu Manxi would definitely be emotional again, but they didn’t expect her to say:
“T’ve never thought of returning to the He residence.”
Astone raised thousands of waves. There was a brief silence below the stage before discussions broke out like a tidal wave.
He Maozhen was gathering his emotions and trying his best to squeeze out his tears. He finally managed to squeeze out a few drops of tears, but his face turned pale from her words.
‘The He family members each had their own thoughts about her coming back. But she had rejected them in public and slapped them in the face. Even the distant relatives of the He family sitting below the stage felt their faces ache.
“Isn’t this too direct? She doesn’t even want five percent of the shares?”
“If she didn’t want to come back, she should have explained it earlier. The He family put in so much effort, but in the end, their faces are swollen.”
“I knew it was impossible for her to go back smoothly. You didn’t see the video on the day of the charity banquet. The He family really didn’t treat her as a human. They beat her up so badly. My mom was beside me at the time, and she almost cried watching it.”
“But if they fall out in public like this, they’ll definitely be enemies in the future. She’s completely blocked her path back.”
“Maybe she’s really never thought of going back. It’s not her whom the He family likes.”
He Maozhen gripped the microphone, his fingers trembling. “Manman, there are so many people. Don’t joke with Dad like this.”
He smiled bitterly, but his heart was pounding.
“Do you think I’m joking with you?” Yu Manxi, standing beside him, looked at the obese man in front of her.
“Manman, I know the He family let you down in the past. We’ll make it up to you… I know you’re very agitated now…”
“Tm very calm. If you didn’t hear me clearly, I can repeat it.”
She was wearing a long black gown with high heels of more than ten centimeters. She was tall and looked down at He Maozhen from above.
She was like a queen who didn’t put the He family in her eyes at all.
“Tll never return to the He family in this lifetime.”
She enunciated every word clearly, for fear that others wouldn’t hear her.
“Manman!”” He Maozhen gritted his teeth and reached out to snatch the microphone in her hand. “I know you’re going home, and you’re very agitated and emotionally unstable, but you can’t say nonsense either.
“Everyone is here for you today. You can’t do this.”
If Yu Manxi continued to cause trouble like this, it would probably be difficult to clean up the mess.
Before his hand could touch Yu Manxi, Fu Sinian raised his hand and grabbed his wrist.
Fu Sinian’s hands used to draw bows and nock arrows. His arm strength was very strong, and with just a little bit of force, He Maozhen cried out.
“Mr. He, there are so many people watching. Do you want to lay a hand on my wife?”
His voice was hoarse and deep. Coupled with He Maozhen’s scream, it made many people below the stage feel their scalps tingle. This banquet had just started, but it was already a martial arts show?
“..” He Maozhen had never been pinched like this before. It was so painful that his scalp went numb, and he couldn’t utter a word for a moment.
“Eu Sinian, what are you doing?!” When Old Madam He saw that her son was being grasped, she immediately rushed over, but she was frightened by Fu Sinian’s cold gaze.
“Yu Manxi, if you don’t want to come back, just say so. What’s the point of doing this?” Zou Li was also anxious when she saw her husband being captured.
He Shiqing was smarter. She immediately got someone to cut off Yu Manxi’s microphone before going to stop the fight. “Mr. Fu, calm down. Let’s talk nicely.”
Only He Xi was standing at the side. This had nothing to do with her, and she was still thinking about Qiao Xiyan.
Just as the people backstage were about to cut the audio equipment, they saw a burly man in black standing beside them. They were instantly scared out of their wits.
“Even if I made a move, I didn’t start it. Mr. He, take care of yourself.” Fu Sinian let go of his wrist.
He Maozhen gasped. His wrist was turning pale from being pinched. At this moment, he suddenly let go. Blood surged, and his wrist was red and swollen. He couldn’t use any strength at all.
“Maozhen, are you alright?” Old Madam He was anxious. “Fu Sinian, don’t go overboard! This is the He family’s place. It’s not the place for an outsider like you to behave atrociously.”
Before Fu Sinian could speak, Yu Manxi stood in front of him. “Didn’t you say just now that we’re all family? Now that you’re saying that my husband is an outsider, it seems like I’m not one of you in your hearts either.”
When Old Madam He saw her son being bullied, she was naturally anxious and spoke without thinking. How could she have known that Yu Manxi would catch her mistake and embarrass her?
“Manman, if you don’t want to come back, just say it directly. We’ve been preparing for so long to welcome you. You’re too much…” Zou Li supported her husband.
“Tm too much?” Yu Manxi sneered. “T’ll tell everyone today who went overboard.
“Iwas sent to the countryside when I was born, but you said to the outside world that I was already dead. How could you curse your daughter like that? I heard that you even built a grave for me? And you even went to worship and clean it every year?”
Since the He family was putting on an act, they had to put on the complete show. The child had died young, and they had even prepared a small coffin.
“Lwas in the countryside for so many years, but did anyone in your family visit me? If the matter hadn’t been exposed, even if I had died outside, you probably wouldn’t have known either, right?
“You’re my mother. You give birth to me without raising me. When you brought me back, you didn’t give me any warmth. Now, you’re accusing me of being too much?
“When you cried and complained about my death in front of others, pretending to be pitiful and miserable, have you ever thought about what kind of life I had in the countryside?”
Back then, the He family gave birth to a dead child and even hyped it up for a long time.
They had truly gained the sympathy of many people.
Zou Li’s face instantly darkened.
“Big Sister, we’re all family. Dad and Mom had their difficulties for doing it back then.” He Shiqing came out to mediate.
“Their difficulty is that I’m not a boy. Because of my exposure, someone lost his job and was criticized. I am the He family’s jinx,” Yu Manxi said bluntly.
“Big Sister, it’s really not like that.
“Dad and Mom love you a lot. It’s just that they haven’t interacted with you and don’t know how to get along with you.
“Look at how much they’ve prepared for you to come back. Even your bedroom was personally decorated by Mom.”
Song Fengwan was originally eating a plate of cold wooden ears with her head lowered. When she heard her speak, she immediately put down her chopsticks.
“Why aren’t you eating anymore?” Qiao Xiyan tilted his head to look at her.
Today’s meal was destined to be unsmooth. Song Fengwan had just said, “If I don’t eat now, I won’t be able to eat later.”
“Tm disgusted, nauseated.” Song Fengwan took a sip of water. “She’s not the one who was abandoned. She’s standing there and blabbering without having experienced the pain. Why is she making her presence known now? She’s pretending to be a saint.”
He Shiqing was standing there mediating, seemingly wanting to be the peacemaker.
“Big Sister… you said it yourself. As long as you have what I have and we publicly admit that you’re a member of the He family, you’ll come back. Now that Dad has even given you the shares, what else do you want?”
After speaking for a long time, He Shiqing finally slandered Yu Manxi.
It was as if she was selfish, greedy, and insatiable.
“[ think she’s just playing with us. Stop talking nonsense with her.” Old Madam He snorted coldly. “Someone like her won’t be satisfied no matter how much you give her.”
“She’s not like that. Actually…”
“Shut up!” Yu Manxi suddenly said, pointing at He Shiqing.
He Shiqing didn’t expect that Yu Manxi would suddenly speak harshly against her, and her heart skipped a beat. “Big Sister…”
“I told you to shut up!”
He Shiqing bit her lip, feeling a little aggrieved.
“Yu Manxi, Shiqing is speaking up for you out of kindness. What’s with your attitude?!” Zou Li was anxious.
“She’s the least qualified to speak. Should I be grateful and thank you just because you gave me my identity and money?
“He Shiqing, while I was busy farming in the countryside, you lived in a big house and played the piano and danced. When I was thirteen years old, I was illiterate, but you could speak a foreign language fluently. Do you think everything can be compensated?
“Did you become stupid from being spoiled?! I’m just a wild girl. I don’t have the heart of a saint like you!”
Yu Manxi spoke with certainty, making He Shiqing’s face pale with anxiety. She didn’t expect her words to be so sharp.
It wasn’t a tactful insinuation, and instead, the sharpness directly pierced her chest.
“She’s right. She’s not the one who was abandoned. She even asked her what else she wanted. How interesting.”
“I didn’t think there was anything wrong with He Shiqing before. Why do I feel that she’s a bitch today?”
“She’s a sanctimonious bitch. I never liked her before. She’s too pretentious.”
He Shiqing was so anxious that her eyes turned red. Her impression of Yu Manxi was still from a few years ago. She used to be taciturn and didn’t say anything even after being beaten, and she was stubborn.
From the looks of it now, it wasn’t that she had a stubborn temper but that she was full of thorns.
He Maozhen recovered from the pain.
“If you really don’t want to come back, just say it. Do you have to humiliate us in public?”
He Maozhen knew that tonight’s matter wouldn’t end well. Instead of being suppressed by her, it was better to take the initiative to attack.
“You called me and invited me home for dinner. Just because I agreed to go back doesn’t mean I want to go back to the He family.” Yu Manxi’s expression was calm.
Compared to the He family’s indignance and arrogance, she was scarily calm.
“But without my consent, you announced to the public that you were going to hold a filiation banquet. You even used the Fu family to make such a big deal out of it.
“It’s not that I want to humiliate you in public but that you delivered yourselves to my doorstep!”
Old Madam He reached out to cover her chest and almost fainted.
He Maozhen was even more exasperated. “Nonsense!”
“Lhave a recording of every call I’ve had with you. Do you need me to play it for everyone to hear? Did I reply clearly that I was returning to the He family? Or were you overthinking things?”
“Recordings?” He Maozhen was so angry that his face and neck turned red.
“It’s to prevent people from stabbing me!”
He Maozhen sneered.
“When you were overseas all these years, our family spent a lot of money on you.
“If not for us, could you have come back like this?
“Because of this, you can stand here and challenge me with your back straight. I can tell now that you’re an ingrate.”
Yu Manxi reached out to Fu Sinian. He took out a bank card from his pocket and handed it to her.
“When I was overseas, I didn’t use a single cent of the money you transferred to me every month.
“During the time I lived in the He residence, I didn’t get a single new piece of clothes. The clothes I wore were all leftovers from He Shiqing. Even so, I still included the money for you.
“Including the meals and accommodation at your house, as well as the airfare to go overseas, I added a total of one hundred thousand yuan. It’s enough for all the expenses you gave me back then.
“Take the rest as interest.
“Take this money and get lost as far as you can. I’ll publish it in the newspapers tomorrow and sever all ties with the He family! We’ll have nothing to do with each other from now on!”
Yu Manxi finished speaking in one breath and flung the bank card at He Maozhen’s face.
The nerves on his face twitched unnaturally, and the blood drained from his face.
Directly throwing money at his face was even more embarrassing than slapping his face.
“Yu Manxi, you bastard!” Zou Li rushed over and raised her hand to hit her.
Just as Fu Sinian was about to protect her, Yu Manxi went forward and received the slap.
Zou Li exerted all her strength, and her wrist throbbed slightly. She didn’t expect her to take the initiative to meet the slap. Their eyes met, and the distance between them was short.
She had never looked at Yu Manxi so closely before. She suddenly remembered what she had said at the beginning of her pregnancy.
“.. Baby, you have to be good and don’t kick Mommy.
“T’ve prepared a lot of new clothes for you. Everyone is looking forward to your arrival.”
“Mommy will definitely give you the best love in the world.”
She had always felt that Yu Manxi didn’t look like anyone in the He family. Now that she was close to her, she realized that her eyes and eyebrows resembled her late mother’s.
Yu Manxi didn’t know what she was thinking at this moment and said quietly,
“You gave birth to me, so I’m willing to suffer anything from you this time. If you still want to hit me, I won’t retaliate even if you beat me to death. Take it as me repaying you for ten months of pregnancy.
“After you finish beating me and scolding me, this relationship
