In the Rose Garden in the Qiao Family’s villa.
Qiao Weimin just reached home when he received Aunt Chen’s call. He irritably pulled off his tie and handed it to Shen Qiongzhi, saying, “Wait. Aunt Chen is calling me.”
Shen Qiongzhi asked in surprise, “Why is she calling you?”
“I don’t know.”
The Qiao Family’s arrogance seemed to be engraved on their bones. Shen Qiongzhi frowned and said unhappily, “Does she want to borrow money from you? I heard that her family is living miserably now. Her husband is suffering from a strange disease and hasn’t recovered after a year in the hospital…”
After all, Aunt Chen was related to his mother-in-law. Aunt Chen’s mother and her mother-in-law were cousins. One married a small local boss, while the other married a poor man.
Afterward, He Yujuan followed her husband to develop the city. Aunt Chen’s family stayed in the house. After she gave birth, her family needed help.
He Yujuan didn’t want to help out with the children and got her niece to help.
She was Aunt Chen.
From the beginning, Aunt Chen helped her out a lot. However, she realized that Aunt Chen was treating Qiao Nian better than Qiao Chen. She was buying Qiao Nian candy behind her back and brought Qiao Nian to her house to play. As a result, she found a reason to dismiss her out of anger.
After all, Qiao Nian wasn’t her biological daughter, and Qiao Chen was her precious son.
Qiao Weimin picked up the phone and said, “She has never asked to borrow money from Mom. It doesn’t make sense if she wants to borrow money now. No matter what, let me pick up the call first.”
Shen Qiongzhi helped him to keep his clothes and said, “If she wants to borrow money, don’t lend her too much. Ten or twenty thousand should be enough. Given their family situation, it’s unlikely you will get the money back. Our family is not a charity, and there are many poor relatives around. Once you agree, they will all come and borrow from you….”
After all, Aunt Chen was a relative of their family. Shen Qiongzhi’s words made him frustrated, even though he agreed with her.
Ten or twenty thousand was doable and could be considered as charity.
He picked up the call and held the phone to his ear.
After two minutes, he hung up the call with a gloomy expression.
He said to Shen Qiongzhi, “Hurry and give me my clothes.”
Shen Qiongzhi was dumbfounded and asked, “What’s the matter? You just came back. Why are you heading out again?”
Qiao Weimin’s expression was ugly, and he said ruthlessly, “Qiao Nian fought with someone on the streets and was taken away by the police. Aunt Chen called me to go to the police station to bail her out!”
Qiao Weimin was almost out of breath as he spoke.
After all, she was adopted.
Although Qiao Nian wasn’t biologically related to the family, she grew up in their house. As the saying goes, like father like son, like mother like daughter. She should have developed some manners even if she only stayed in their house!
She ended up in the police station after only a few days out of the house!
He really shouldn’t allow her to continue studying in Rao City.
He even had to clean up her mess.
Hearing that it was about Qiao Nian, Shen Qiongzhi was unhappy and gave him his clothes unwillingly. “Shouldn’t she look for her biological parents and grandfather? Why did she call you?”
Qiao Weimin was furious. “I don’t know. They’re not familiar with the area and will not be able to bail her out. Our project with Cheng Feng Corporation is almost finalized. Even though Qiao Nian is not one of us, she has stayed in our family. If this matter gets out, we will be implicated as well.”
Shen Qiongzhi was disgusted. “She was just like what Mom said, we can’t get rid of her!”
Qiao Weimin took the clothes from her and said irritably, “Let me go over and take a look.”
