Tian Cuifang wiped away her tears and looked at her husband, “What should we do now?”
Seeing that so much money was gone, Li Datou’s heart still hurt. Hearing this, he said viciously, “You’re asking me, how do I know, it’s you, a useless bitch, who can’t do anything.”
Tian Cuifang was scolded by her husband, but she didn’t dare to talk back, she just wiped her tears silently.
Seeing this, Li Datou said harshly, “You only know how to cry all day long. You have lost my luck by crying. It’s bad luck.”
Li Datou beat her again. During this time, because he was going to the capital to find his daughter, he no longer beat her.
When Shen Xitong walked out of the hotel, the look in her eyes became more and more cold. She thought that the couple had never seen the world, and one hundred thousand yuan would be enough to settle the matter, but they didn’t want it, did they want more?
She never thought that they really wanted to make up for her, if that was the case, then they wouldn’t be them.
Looking back at the hotel behind her, Shen Xitong’s eyes became colder, she took out her mobile phone, and dialled a number while going out.
Three days passed in a flash. Early in the morning, Shen Qian received a call from a friend in the hospital, saying that the results of the paternity test had come out. After listening to the final results, Shen Qian remained silent for a long time, and then said in a low voice “Thank you” and hung up the phone.
“Junyu, are you going to work today?” Seeing Shen Junyu downstairs, Shen Qian asked gently.
Shen Junyu shook his head, this weekend, he was resting.
“It’s just right, the paternity test result came out today, can you help me get it?”
“Okay.” Shen Junyu stood up, took the car keys and went out. On the way back, he stopped by to bring the Li family couple back to the Shen family home.
Shen Xitong knew that the results would come out today. She hadn’t been out of the house for the past three days, and she didn’t go to see the Li family couple again. She just stayed at home obediently, occasionally playing the piano, or learning flower arrangement from Chu Yunrong. She showed the appearance of a daughter that didn’t seem to care about the results of the paternity test at all.
Seeing Shen Junyu going out, she knew that there should be a result, her eyes sank, and she walked to the living room, “Dad.”
Shen Qian held a newspaper in his hand, when he saw Shen Xitong, he smiled gently, and pointed to his side “Xitong, don’t stand.”
Shen Xitong sat down beside Shen Qian. Although she didn’t say anything, she looked at Shen Qian from the corner of her eyes from time to time. Seeing his calm appearance, she couldn’t tell anything. There was no emotion at all, but there was some uneasiness in her heart.
“Tongtong, help mom get a pair of scissors.” Chu Yunrong called out from outside the door, and Shen Xitong responded, “Okay, coming right away.” She glanced at Shen Qian again, “Then, dad, I’ll go find mom first.”
Shen Qian smiled and nodded, “Go, your mother is probably tossing those flowers again.”
Before Shen Xitong left, she took another look at Shen Qian’s calm face, pursed her lips, and walked out.
When the Li family couple stepped into Shen family house for the second time, they were still stunned by the luxury of the scenery in front of them. Compared with the first time when they were cautious and afraid, they were much more courageous this time, and they had been looking around since they came in. Looking at this house, the more they looked at it, the more greedy their eyes became.
This house had been redecorated by Shen Junyu in the past two years, and a lot of furniture was custom-made from abroad, so the price was naturally high.
Although Li Datou and his wife didn’t recognize the brands of these furniture, they could tell that the family was rich.
“Well, Mr. Shen, is the paternity test result already out?” Li Datou rubbed his hands and asked cautiously.
Shen Qian smiled gently, “Don’t worry, let’s wait until everyone arrives.”
Shen Xitong looked sideways, everyone was here, who were they waiting for? Grandpa, mother, and eldest brother were all here already.
At this moment, Shen Qinglan walked in, Shen Xitong’s eyes sank, and she gave Shen Qinglan a hard look. Was this a joke for everyone to see? It was just a pity, she was afraid it was still a bit difficult to see her become a joke today.
Shen Qinglan was indeed here to watch the show, which was originally directed by her. If she didn’t watch it, wouldn’t she be wasting so much of her time and energy?
She sat down next to old man Shen, and asked about old man Shen’s physical condition as usual, old man Shen smiled and patted her hand, “Grandpa is in good health, don’t worry.”
Shen Qinglan smiled and stopped talking.
“Since everyone is here, I’ll announce the paternity test results here.” Shen Qian picked up the paternity test report that Shen Junyu brought back from the hospital, Shen Xitong looked at the report, a look full of unknown meaning flashed in her eyes, and the corners of her mouth curled slightly, with a calm face.
“After identification, Xitong and you do have a parent-child relationship. In other words, she is indeed your daughter.” Shen Qian said calmly.
Shen Xitong’s originally calm expression instantly cracked, and she looked at Shen Qian in disbelief, to be precise, at the report in his hand, as if she wanted to stare a hole out of it.
The faces of the Li family couple were beaming with ecstasy and excitement, especially Tian Cuifang, looking at Shen Xitong, she was so excited that she was crying, “I knew it, I knew you were our daughter.”
“No, it’s impossible, this report is fake, it must be fake.” Shen Xitong screamed, completely out of composure, she had replaced the identification sample a long time ago, how could the identification result be true. Her complexion changed, and she pointed at Shen Qinglan, “It’s you, isn’t it you? You want to drive me out of the Shen family, so you forged this report.”
As soon as the words came out, the expressions of everyone present except the Li family changed, even Chu Yunrong looked at Shen Xitong with reproach.
Shen Qinglan’s expression was still cold, with no signs of happiness or anger, and she didn’t even say a word, but just glanced at her indifferently. She really did the exchange of samples, but she just exchanged the real samples back.
However, Shen Xitong saw Shen Qinglan’s contempt for her from this look, and instantly realized what kind of stupid thing she did just now in a hurry.
“Grandpa, Dad, Mom, I didn’t mean that, I just…” Shen Xitong wanted to explain, but seeing the expressionless faces of the Shen family, she felt powerless for a while.
“Okay, there is no need to doubt the authenticity of this report. It is true. Since your biological parents have found you and they want you to go back, you can think about it carefully.” Mr. Shen said with a straight face.
Shen Xitong’s eyes widened, “Grandpa, are you going to drive me out of the Shen family?” As she spoke, tears rolled down her face.
Seeing Shen Xitong crying sadly, Chu Yunrong felt soft in her heart. She knew that this child was very attached to this family, but she always felt insecure and sensitive.
She wanted to speak, but facing Shen Qinglan’s cold face, remembering Shen Xitong’s accusation against her just now, she couldn’t say anything, so she kept silent, lowered her head, and didn’t look at Shen Xitong.
Shen Xitong originally thought that Chu Yunrong would at least persuade on her behalf, but she didn’t see her move for a long time, and her heart became colder. After all, she wasn’t her own child, so she could give up on her when she wanted to.
“Grandpa, I don’t want to leave this family. You and my parents raised me and gave me a good living environment and education. I haven’t had time to repay you. I don’t want to leave you.” Shen Xitong cried bitterly when her reason returned.
“Xitong, your grandfather didn’t want you to leave the Shen family.” Shen Qian said, “After all, they are your biological parents, and now that they have found you, it’s up to you whether you want to go back with them or stay in the Shen family. We will respect your choice.”
Shen Xitong breathed a sigh of relief when she heard this, but she cried even harder, looking at Shen Qian with tears in her eyes, “Dad, I want to stay here, I want to stay with you and mom, don’t drive me away, okay?”
“Sanya, we are your real parents. It took us so long to find you. Why don’t you want to go back with us?”
Tian Cuifang was in a hurry. If Shen Xitong didn’t go with them, where would their good life come from.
“You didn’t want me back then, so why are you looking for me now? It’s to see that my life is getting better, so you want money?” Shen Xitong looked at the Li family couple with resentment, and her tone was resentful.
Tian Cuifang also cried, “There was really nothing I could do back then. If I didn’t send you to the orphanage, you would have starved to death. You were born by me, so I was willing to bear it. Later, when the conditions at home improved, we went to look for you, but you were no longer there. For so many years, I haven’t had a good night’s sleep, and I thought about you every day, and your father always complains that I am too cruel as a mother.”
Li Datou cooperated and made a sad expression.
Shen Qinglan looked at it coldly, without saying a word, tsk…tsk…, it’s a pity that this couple didn’t become actors, and Shen Junyu also watched the drama with great interest. To be honest, he didn’t have any feelings for Shen Xitong at all. It didn’t matter to him, but it was good to be able to watch the show.
Looking at Shen Qinglan, there was a softness in his eyes. This was the sister he wanted to love and protect.
“Okay, don’t cry.” Mr. Shen said, and the living room fell silent instantly, “This matter is already clear, Xitong, since you chose to stay in Shen family house, then we won’t say anything, but they are your biological parents, even if they abandoned you back then, they gave birth to you after all, now that you have found them, you can walk around with them when you have time.”
Shen Xitong was full of reluctance, but she still answered yes. When Li Datou and his wife heard the words, they were very happy, and they looked at Mr. Shen with gratitude.
“Lanlan, grandpa is tired, help him up to rest.” Mr. Shen said.
Shen Qinglan stood up and helped the old man upstairs.
Shen Junyu was ordered to send the Li family couple back to the hotel. Chu Yunrong also found an excuse to go upstairs to rest. Her husband had already said that she was not allowed to take care of this matter, so she just avoided it.
“Father.” Only Shen Xitong and Shen Qian were left in the living room, and Shen Xitong called out in a low voice with some uneasiness in her heart.
Shen Qian smiled gently, “What’s the matter?” The smile on his face was no different from his usual, and Shen Xitong couldn’t tell what he was thinking, but she always felt that Shen Qian should know something.
Shen Xitong wanted to laugh, but she couldn’t, so she twitched the corners of her mouth, “It’s nothing, Dad, if there’s nothing else, I’ll go up first. Mom just said that she felt a little uncomfortable, so I’ll go up and see her.”
Shen Qian nodded with a smile, “Go, if your mother is really unwell, remember to ask the doctor to come and see her.”
“Okay.” Shen Xitong nodded, got up and went upstairs.
