Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Zhou Xing’s legal guardian would be her maternal grandmother. The things that were left to her would naturally be handed over to her maternal grandmother for safekeeping.
After she turned twenty, her maternal grandmother would have to return everything to their granddaughter and she would manage them on her own.
What a great turning point this was. Zhou Xing’s stepmother was laughing for only a few days. The appearance of this will made Zhou Xing’s stepmother’s face darken.
She always knew that her parents-in-law didn’t like her. Both of them were in their second marriage. When the two of them held a banquet, they didn’t spend a single cent on them. Even the red packet that they gave to her, their daughter-in-law, only contained five hundred yuan. Who were they trying to put to shame?!
She knew that her parents-in-law were quite wealthy. Her husband had a cradle-to-grave job and was paid a fixed salary. However, her father-in-law was a businessman who did quite a big business and earned a lot of money.
Although she obviously knew that her parents-in-law didn’t want to see her and were unwilling for her to be married into the Zhou family, after knowing that her treatment couldn’t be compared to her husband’s first wife at all and she was being looked down on by the Zhou family, Zhou Xing’s stepmother gritted her teeth and not only married into the Zhou family but also gave birth to a grandson for the Zhou family in the second year.
Zhou Xing’s stepmother was confident that since the Zhou family only had Zhou Xing as a granddaughter, she would be considered a great hero in the Zhou family for giving birth to a son, and her parents-in-law would treat her well. Who knew that her status and treatment in her parents-in-law’s hearts didn’t improve because of this grandson?
After taking a look at her son, carrying him, and giving two red packets to him, those two old people still regarded Zhou Xing as their precious and didn’t like to bother themselves with her son. She was just a money-losing daughter but her parents-in-law still brought her over so that they could eat and live together.
On the contrary, the precious son she gave birth to could only go to his grandparents’ house once a week to have a good meal.
Zhou Xing’s stepmother thought of how her son had asked her, “Mom, why is it that sister could live with grandpa and grandma but I can’t? Their house is big and beautiful. I’ve seen sister’s room as well. It’s bigger than mine and there are a lot of pretty dolls. Mom, I like robots and toy cars. Aren’t grandpa and grandma going to buy them for me? There’s a lot of delicious food at their house. I want to stay with them as well. I want to have good meals.”
Every time she thought of her son’s words, Zhou Xing’s stepmother hated Zhou Xing’s presence to death. She also hated her parents-in-law for being biased. They already had a grandson but were still treating a lousy granddaughter as their precious. How could there be such confused elders in this world?
Initially, when Zhou Xing’s stepmother heard that her parents-in-law got into a car accident and had passed away, she was still quite happy. The two mountains that were suppressing her all along were gone. Once they were dead, the big house that they lived in previously would definitely be theirs.
She could bring her daughter and son over and live there. She could finally let her son live in the house that was known as big and beautiful to him. After the money that the two of them left behind was in her hands, she was going to buy her son a house full of toys so that he could play with them and throw them away at will.
Who knew that the appearance of the will was like a bolt of lightning that stunned Zhou Xing’s stepmother and she couldn’t recover herself for a long time? This will made it clear that the Zhou family’s inheritance had nothing to do with her and her son at all. The two elders had made it clear that after their death, Zhou Xing’s maternal grandmother would become Zhou Xing’s caregiver and guardian. Even if her husband wanted to help Zhou Xing keep safe the Zhou family’s inheritance using his identity of her father, this reason was useless.
Her parents-in-law were dead. Before their death, they still kept such a hand, blocking all her escape routes. Father Zhou and Mother Zhou immediately became the two most hated people in Zhou Xing’s stepmother’s life.
Zhou Xing’s stepmother hated them to death, but Zhou Xing was happy. Aside from the fact that she had lost the two elders who doted on her, at least, there were no changes to her material lifestyle at all. The house she lived in was completely hers. The house that her father was living with her stepmother was broken and old and wasn’t as big as the one she was living in now.
Her grandpa and grandma were willing to leave that small house to her father. She had no opinions on that and wouldn’t snatch it from him.
She had already lived with her maternal grandmother for three years. In these three years, Zhou Xing was dissatisfied with everything except for her material lifestyle. After leading a life that was too comfortable and easy, she naturally started to let her thoughts wander.
Although the Zhou family didn’t have a lot of money, that child from the preceding marriage and her brother had parents by their side. However, even if she had a lot of money in her hands, she only had an old grandmother by her side. Upon thinking about this, Zhou Xing felt hatred. She didn’t understand why she was so special and that she didn’t have a parent to take care of her at all. She was more pitiful than children of single-parent families as she was considered the same as ‘kinless’.
Who had caused her all these pains? It was Qiao Nan!
Qiao Nan was her enemy. Could she just let this go? No, she wanted to take revenge!
When she thought of how she had been living for the past three years, Zhou Xing’s eyes were full of hatred. “At this time, I don’t know if I should thank my heartless father. If he didn’t listen to that vixen’s words, saw me as unpleasing to the eye, and kicked me out from their family register, grandpa and grandma wouldn’t have created a new one for me and I would still be known as the daughter of Zhou Zheng and Qiao Zijin. Now that I ‘have neither no kin nor relatives’, how would the Zhai family be able to find out about me?”
In Ping Cheng, she had no relatives or good friends. It wouldn’t be simple for the Zhai family to check on her. “I’m called Zhou Xing now, not Zhou Ying. My mother has been dead for ten years. Seeing how Qiao Nan is living so happily now, I bet she has long forgotten that she was the cause of my mother’s death. She probably doesn’t remember that there’s a young girl named Zhou Ying in this world, even if I’m her only niece.”
Qiao Nan was a murderer. She had knocked her mother down, causing her death. Why was it that she didn’t have to bear any legal responsibility and could lead a carefree and happy life while she, a pitiful victim who had lost her mother because of Qiao Nan, had an irresponsible father who had been completely charmed by a vixen and didn’t want his daughter after having a lover?
