Chapter 167 - She learned that Tong Jiaxin was hurt when she got home.

Mother Xiao thought that she had nailed it in the head.
She harrumphed and said, “I’ve already found out that Chengping had given you money.
You only want to be with Chengping because of our wealth.
I’ve seen many shallow girls like you!
“Matching status is the most important thing in a marriage.
You and Chengping are not of equal status.
As such, neither I nor his father would support the two of you being together!”
Mother Xiao’s haughty air disgusted Tong Xuelu.
But would she get upset over that
That being said.
A classic take-this-money-and-leave-my-son scene didn’t happen every day.
She must make good use of it.
She had been a green tea for years in her previous life, and her only regret was that nobody had ever thrown money at her.
She never thought she would run into this golden opportunity like this!
That thought made her excited!
I’m ready for you.
Please smash money at my face viciously!
Seeing that Tong Xuelu’s face was red all over, Mother Xiao was more complacent.
“As long as you are willing to leave Chengping, I can set you up in the future.
They might not measure up to my Chengping, but it will still beat you trying to find a husband on your own!”
That’s it That’s it!
She was not even offering money for her to leave her son No way!
Tong Xuelu took a deep breath and began her performance.
“Aunty Ning, have you heard of this poem before I will only leave you when mountains are flat and heaven and earth touch each other.
And that’s exactly how I feel right now.”
Having said Qiong Yao’s classic line out loud, Tong Xuelu almost disgusted herself.
She was good.
Thought Mother Xiao in her mind.
“You will never be able to marry into the family without Chengping’s dad and my approval!”
Tong Xuelu clutched her heart and said through her watery eyes, “Everything comes secondary to love.
Besides, Chengping had said to me that he will run off and sever his relationship with you if you don’t agree to it.”
Mother Xiao gritted her teeth and stared at Tong Xuelu viciously.
Chengping would never say such things!”
“Do I need to tell Aunty Xiao whether Chengping will or will not say such a thing”
Mother Xiao knew exactly the answer to that, which was why she looked the way she did and was here to talk to Tong Xuelu.
Xiao Chengping had always been a stubborn one ever since he was a child.
Once he had made up his mind, not even 10 cows could pull him back.
Mother Xiao took a few deep breaths before she was able to calm herself down.
“Alright, go ahead and name your price.
What would it take for you to leave CHengping”
Here we go! Here we go!
Here comes the classic line!
Tong Xuelu suppressed the urge of her lips curving up.
Frowning, she shook her head and said, “Aunty Ning, I can’t!”
Mother Xiao stared at her.
She could almost shoot out fire from her eyes.
After a long while, she lowered her head and pulled out an envelope from her purse.
Tossing it in front of Tong Xuelu, she said, “There’s 1,000 yuan in there.
It’s yours as long as you promise to leave Chengping.”
A thousand yuan!
Tong Xuelu was very tempted.
Had someone offered her money before she had transmigrated, she would have immediately left the dawg in the blink of an eye.
But she couldn’t do that right now.
If she dared to take the money, Mother Xiao just might turn her to the police.
She couldn’t leave open ends like that.
Pushing the envelope back, she said, hurt, “Aunty Ning, you are insulting me now.
Am I the kind of money-grubbing person” Yes, I really am.
Mother Xiao pinched her lips shut.
“What is it that you want then Let me tell you, there is no way you are going to become a part of the Xiao family!”
Tong Xuelu looked very hurt.
“Aunty Ning, you will not accept me no matter what I do”
Mother Xiao nodded.
Give it up already.”
Tong Xuelu covered up her face and sobbed for a long while before she said with her eyes reddened, “Okay, I get it.
If that’s the case, I can leave, but I am going to need you to do something for me.”
