Chapter 412 - Nangong Family
Translator: Mr Voltaire
Hearing that Nangong Xiong wanted to take Nangong Shuyue away, all of the Chai family's people weren't too happy and called out, "Now that Nangong Shuyue has married into the Chai family, she belongs to the Chai family. Since she has caused such a thing, she has to bear the consequences. Also, don't think that the Chai family, a family with a nation's Legacy, will be afraid of a small family like yours."
Nangong Xiong originally wanted to make trouble. However, the Nangong family's leaders had told him not to incite discord between the Nangong family and the Chai family, and it would be enough to bring Nangong Shuyue home. As such, he ignored those words from before.
However, now, he couldn't endure it anymore and coldly laughed as he replied, "Is the Chai family still a family with a nation's Legacy? Wasn't it just destroyed by Great Qin? I'll be taking my big sis home today no matter what. As for the Chai family, the Nangong family doesn't fear you at all!"
When the Chai family's people heard Nangong Xiong's words, they felt enraged, and just as they wanted to say something, one of the Chai family's leaders yelled, "Enough!"
This family leader's position was quite high, and his voice was incredibly powerful. He caused the raucous scene to quieten down as everyone looked at him.
The family leader stepped out and said, "Let him take Nangong Shuyue! However, she can never return to the Chai family again. I'll represent Shaohui's branch in cutting her off; from now on, she is no longer someone of the Chai family!"
It was evidently not possible to kill Nangong Shuyue because she was the eldest daughter of the Nangong family. She was quite valued by the Nangong family, which was quite powerful as well.
If they killed Nangong Shuyue, they would definitely incur the wrath of the Nangong family. The Chai family was already in dangerous straits because Later Zhou had just been destroyed. Right now, they couldn't afford to offend the Nangong family and make another powerful enemy.
This time, they came to take Nangong Shuyue away. The young Chai Shaohui was unable to control his faction, and with Nangong Shuyue, they would be able to control the faction.
Nangong Xiong didn't like the way this family leader spoke, but it achieved his goal. After Nangong Shuyue's husband died, the Nangong family had been trying to convince Nangong Shuyue to return to the Nangong family instead of remaining at the Chai family. However, because of Chai Shaohui, Nangong Shuyue was determined to stay in the Chai family.
She was incredibly stubborn, and because no one could convince her, the Nangong family could only give in in the end.
"Big sis, let's go back now." Nangong Xiong felt quite angry - of course, this wasn't towards Nangong Shuyue but towards the entire Chai family.
Everything had happened as she had expected, and Nangong Shuyue calmly looked at everyone. She was unaffected by any of their words and said, "Little brother, I won't be going back, nor will the Chai family's people chase me away."
Hearing these words, Nangong Xiong looked at Nangong Shuyue angrily and said, "Big sis! Do you still not see? They said that they wanted to cut you off and chase you out of the Chai family!"
The Chai family's people also looked quite confused - could it be that Nangong Shuyue was stupid? They had made everything so clear, so how could she have not understood?
Facing everyone's gazes, Nangong Shuyue remained calm as she continued, "Because I'm Great Qin's Legatee's woman now!"
"Hahaha…" A young man started to loudly laugh as he said, "So you found Shaohui find a step-dad? You looked pretty loyal and dependable, but…"
Before the young man could finish his words, a loud slap sounded out, knocking him to the ground. Half of his face became incredibly red and swollen as a trace of blood flowed out of his mouth.
The young man was quite shocked by this slap and looked over, and he found that it was actually the family leader of his branch who had slapped him.
"Enough, we'll leave matters here. Nangong Shuyue still belongs to the Chai family, and Shaohui is still the Chai family's young master. You may all leave!"
This family leader didn't speak very loudly, but everyone was clear as to what was happening. This was because no one else was speaking and the scene was incredibly quiet - everyone had been shocked by Nangong Shuyue's words.
Nangong Shuyue had become Great Qin's Legatee's woman - this was an incredibly big matter because there was now a direct relationship between her and Great Qin's Legatee.
After hearing the family leader's words, everyone started dispersing, and the family leaders of the various branches all smiled as they started to apologize to Nangong Shuyue.
This was all because of Great Qin's Legatee - if Nangong Shuyue had become Great Qin's Legatee's woman, the Chai family would receive massive benefits. This was especially since Later Zhou had submitted to Great Qin; if they had this extra relationship, things would go extremely well for them.
Nangong Xiong's expression became quite serious, and he asked in disbelief, "Big sis, is this true?"
Hearing this, Nangong Shuyue nodded seriously. At first, she hadn't wanted to reveal this because it wasn't something honorable. After all, she was a woman with a child, and even though her husband had died quite early on, suddenly having someone else would result in people talking about her behind her back.
Seeing Nangong Shuyue nod, Nangong Xiong immediately took out his phone and made a call. This matter was quite big, and he had to tell the rest of the Nangong family.
The call quickly connected, and Nangong Xiong explained the situation. The person on the other side went silent for a few seconds before asking Nangong Xiong to return and not do anything to disrupt Nangong Shuyue.
It was clear that their family took this matter quite seriously.
Nangong Xiong looked at his big sister and sighed. He wasn't very comfortable with his big sister becoming someone else's woman, especially Great Qin's Legatee's woman.
Nangong Xiong was quite against this because he knew that his big sister was sacrificing her body. It was impossible for there to be any feelings between her and Great Qin's Legatee; he was worried that she would be thrown away by Great Qin's Legatee after he was bored of her.
With what Great Qin's Legatee had done so far, as well as the Chaos Imperial Star descent, this meant that Great Qin's Legatee was fated to not be a good person. Even though his big sister becoming Great Qin's Legatee's woman seemed to be a glorious matter, it was possible that her life wouldn't be any good.
However, despite knowing this, Nangong Xiong couldn't oppose it because it was something that both the Chai family and Nangong family wanted. As such, he could only sigh and take the people he brought away.
The other family leaders all smiled and courteously chatted with Nangong Shuyue. After hearing some information from her, they happily left.
Now, this matter was finally over. From the beginning, Nangong Shuyue's expression hadn't changed at all because she had already expected this. This was one of the reasons why she had given herself to Zhao Fu.
Zhao Fu's appearance appeared in her mind - becoming his woman had indeed been something quite glorious, and everyone had to treat her with respect now. This was how mighty his power was.
Soon, this news reached Chai Shaohui. Even though he felt a bit angry, he understood that his mother had done this for him, so he was unable to truly feel angry.
