Chapter 792: Face-smacked By The Duke
With an identity like Zhong Nuannuan’s, how easy would it be to do business everywhere?
If Gu Mingzhe had followed his heart from the beginning, Nuannuan would have fallen in love with him at this point, would she not?
On one hand, Gu Mingzhe was busy regretting his decision as he came up with a thousand and one ways to woo Nuannuan so that she could fall in love with him when he divorced Zhong Qianqian.
Out of the blue, Zhong Qianqian, that stupid woman, was at it again.
Before Selina’s matter was resolved, she offended Duke Eton thoroughly again.
To be on Duke Eton’s good side, Gu Mingzhe shot up from his seat and roared in a righteous tone, “Qianqian, what are you doing?! Are you crazy?! Nuannuan is your younger sister. She treats you well enough. Why would you say such things? Sit down now!”
Zhong Qianqian’s envy was so great that she was about to lose her mind. After getting criticized by Duke Eton, she felt extremely embarrassed. Feeling everyone’s gaze on her, she felt like she could barely breathe. Yet, not only Gu Mingzhe refused to help her as her husband, but he was also shouting at her.
Zhong Qianqian was about to explode in anger when Duke Eton spoke even more forcefully.
“On my part, the reason I wouldn’t allow Sunny to reveal her identity and to create a fake one instead, I think... your parents should be well aware of why.”
Zhong Qianqian’s face turned pale at Duke Eton’s words.
Jiang Shuwan called Zhong Qianqian before to tell her not to launch any attacks on Zhong Nuannuan in public in case someone found out the secret before Zhong Nuannuan’s death.
Yet... Yet, she could not hold it in anymore!
When Duke Eton said that, did that mean he already knew her true identity?
After making sure that Zhong Qianqian was scared out of her wits, Eton finally continued, “How dare a mother lost her daughter when it could have totally been avoided? Do you think she fulfills her duty as a mother?”
When Zhong Qianqian heard that, color returned to her face.
So, that was what he was referring to!
Oh, she nearly died from the fright.
However, Eton could not stand to see his daughter being bullied by her annoying and vicious elder sister! His precious daughter wanted nothing but to return to the family that she had been missing for 14 years. Yet, when she returned home, all she received were endless ill-treatments.
Especially when he heard Selina say that Sunny had gone to jail for this two-faced snake, Eton burst into a fit of uncontrollable anger. He wanted to rush to Jiang District to murder the people responsible.
He had always been a hot-tempered person, and he was not afraid of staining his hands with blood.
If Selina had not mentioned that Sunny wanted to solve the problem herself, Duke Eton would have made his move long ago.
So, now that he had the chance, Eton insisted on creating trouble for this woman, even though he was aware that someone would get her out.
Thus, just as Zhong Qianqian heaved a sigh of relief, Eton spoke again.
“Our Sunny tolerated you so much, you can even say that she had been loyal to you and did her best. Yet, you did everything you could to defame our Sunny. You told everyone that our Sunny is a murderer, a slut, a country bumpkin from the farming district. You claimed that she has a horrible upbringing, vain, and materialistic. You also claimed that because she fell in love with your boyfriend, she killed the person who had a crush on her. Eventually, she took advantage of Chi Yang’s relationship to get out of jail, but she was essentially a murderer. Do you feel a single shred of guilt when you said those things?”
Zhong Qianqian always had a bad reputation that had only been mitigated when she married Gu Mingzhe. It was only recently that people started seeing her in a new light.
