A Warm Wedding and A New Bride of Young Master Lu - Chapter 765
Chapter 765 Xiao Yunyun’s Family Background (1)
The following day, in Shen Yuechuan’s apartment.
After waking up, she found that she was sore all over.
Of course, it was not the kind of soreness caused by “bed exercise”.
Yesterday, after she and Shen Yuechuan both calmed down, they hugged each other in a strange and difficult position and slept together for the whole night. The soreness now was the sequela of her sleeping position.
Xiao Yunyun struggled to adjust her position with difficulty. Looking at Shen Yuechuan, who was in a deep sleep, she slightly and uncontrollably raised the corner of her mouth.
She was very grateful to Shen Yuechuan, and also she… loved him even more.
In such a chaotic situation yesterday, she had been ready to give herself to Shen Yuechuan, but he still didn’t take the last step.
In the final a.n.a.lysis, Shen Yuechuan was still reluctant to hurt her because he loved her.
Xiao Yunyun felt so sweet, as if her heart was covered with a layer of honey early in the morning.
She secretly kissed Shen Yuechuan’s face and then checked the time, only to find that it was almost nine o’clock. When she unlocked the screen lock of her mobile phone, a notice from Weibo suddenly popped up.
“Shen Yuechuan’s and Xiao Yunyun’s mother is holding a press conference, in the live broadcast (link).”
Xiao Yunyun once thought that she had an illusion. She rubbed her eyes hard and clicked on the link to the live broadcast. Sure enough, she saw Su Yunjin.
Su Yunjin was situated in the reception hall on the second floor of Lu Enterprise Media.
She sat seriously behind the podium and said word by word, “That’s all. Yuechuan and Yunyun are not related by blood. Their love is neither against any ethics nor laws. The summons of the court will soon be sent to the one who spread the news that my son and my adopted daughter were illegally in love with each other.”
The reporter off the stage raised his hand and asked, “Mrs. Su, this matter has been exposed for three days. Why didn’t you show up to clarify it until now?”
Su Yunjin straightened up and looked sharp and cold. “The two kids didn’t want me to worry about them, so they didn’t tell me about it. I just heard of it from their friends, so I came back from Australia yesterday afternoon.”
The reporter was about to ask more questions when Su Yunjin announced that the press conference was over. Then, she was out of the live camera under the escort of the security guards.
The live broadcast was over. Xiao Yunyun’s mobile phone screen darkened, and the screen got locked automatically.
Xiao Yunyun was in a daze. She felt as if she was also locked, unable to react in time.
Su Yunjin had already come back to City A, but why didn’t she come to find her and Shen Yuechuan?
Also, what did she mean by “my adopted daughter”?
She was not her daughter, and she was not related to Shen Yuechuan by blood, right?
Xiao Yunyun shivered all over as if she had just woken up from a dream. She replayed the whole process of Su Yunjin’s press conference with trembling hands.
The video clearly showed that Su Yunjin presented some adoption papers to all media, on which it was written clearly that she had been adopted by Su Yunjin and Xiao Guoshan when she was one and a half years old.
In other words, she was really not Su Yunjin’s and Xiao Guoshan’s biological daughter.
Next, it was Su Yunjin’s speech.
Su Yunjin harshly denied all the rumors on the Internet about the incestuous relationship between her and Shen Yuechuan.
She pointed out coldly. “Recently, all the attacks against my son and my adopted daughter on the Internet are a kind of malicious harm. I hope that the netizens who have been misled can delete your comments. But as for those who have lots of fans and are paid for spreading the rumors, it’s useless. As their mother, I will definitely sue you.”
Xiao Yunyun replayed the part of Su Yunjin’s presenting the adoption papers several times. She was finally sure that there was no blood relationship between her and Su Yunjin as well as Xiao Guoshan.
She put down her phone, with her tears falling down drop by drop.
It turned out that she was the real orphan, and also Shen Yuechuan was not her brother.
However, how could she have been an orphan? Why did Su Yunjin keep hiding it from her?
After she was 18 years old, she had the right to know her family background. Why didn’t Su Yunjin mention that she had been adopted?
Shen Yuechuan was woken up by the noise. As soon as he opened his eyes, he saw Xiao Yunyun crying in his arms.
He held Xiao Yunyun and wiped the tears from her face with the back of his hand. He frowned and asked softly, “What happened?”
Xiao Yunyun didn’t say anything but simply buried her face in Shen Yuechuan’s chest. Gradually, she couldn’t help crying out.
In the past three days, no matter how harsh the public opinion was, Xiao Yunyun had always been optimistic and never cried.
But at this moment, she burst into tears.
Shen Yuechuan held Xiao Yunyun even tighter and kept comforting her. “What’s going on? Tell me. I’ll handle it.”
“Mom is back.” Xiao Yunyun cried while saying intermittently, “But, she said that she was not my mom… Shen Yuechuan, I don’t know what happened…”
It was easy to misunderstand Xiao Yunyun’s words as Su Yunjin didn’t recognize her as her daughter.
However, if Su Yunjin really came to see Xiao Yunyun, there was no reason for Shen Yuechuan’s unawareness of it.
Shen Yuechuan suddenly thought of something. He took the phone and was overwhelmed by the reports.
Just after the press conference held by Su Yunjin ended, the official media, one after another, pointed out that Xiao Yunyun had been adopted by Su Yunjin and her husband. She was not related to Shen Yuechuan by blood, so strictly speaking, the relationship between Shen Yuechuan and Xiao Yunyun couldn’t be considered to be incestuous.
So, Xiao Yunyun meant that she was not Su Yunjin’s biological daughter.
“Xiao Yunyun was adopted by Su Yunjin?”
“Yunyun, don’t cry.” It took Shen Yuechuan a long time to react. He sat up with Xiao Yunyun in his arms. “Let’s ask what’s going on first.”
Xiao Yunyun looked at Shen Yuechuan with tears in her eyes, like a lost person staring at the spotlight.
Shen Yuechuan kissed Xiao Yunyun gently and said, “Don’t be afraid. No matter what’s going on, I will not leave you.”
He understood what Xiao Yunyun was feeling now.
When Su Yunjin told him that he was her son, he also felt that the entire world had changed. He even suspected that everything he had experienced since he was a child was just a long dream.
Xiao Yunyun should also have the same suspicion now.
In the past twenty years, she had always thought of herself as the biological daughter of Su Yunjin and Xiao Guoshan. However, in just a few seconds, she had become an adopted orphan.
Their lives seemed to have been exchanged.
With Shen Yuechuan’s comfort, Xiao Yunyun gradually calmed down. After washing up and changing her clothes, Su Yunjin called and asked them to go to Su Jian’an’s house.
“Let’s go together.” Shen Yuechuan held Xiao Yunyun’s hand tightly. “Don’t be afraid. No matter what happens next, I’ll be by your side.”
Xiao Yunyun nodded and didn’t seem to be scared anymore. She went to Dingya Villas with Shen Yuechuan.
Uncle Xu had been waiting at the door for a long time. As soon as the white Land Rover stopped, he went over and opened the door beside the pa.s.senger seat. Shen Yuechuan took the wheelchair from the trunk and put Xiao Yunyun on it.
“Yuechuan, Miss Xiao, just go in.” Uncle Xu said, “Mr. Su, Ms. Luo, and Mrs. Su have all arrived.”
Xiao Yunyun looked at him and asked him for help in a low voice, “Uncle Xu…”
“Don’t worry.” Uncle Xu saw through Xiao Yunyun’s mind at a glance and smiled. “They are all chatting and laughing inside.”
Xiao Yunyun let out a sigh of relief and looked back at Shen Yuechuan behind her. “Let’s go in.”
Shen Yuechuan pushed Xiao Yunyun into the house. Just as Uncle Xu said, everyone had arrived, but the atmosphere was surprisingly relaxing. Su Yunjin even was in a good mood and was playing with Xiyu and Xiangyi.
Su Jian’an had sharp eyes and found Shen Yuechuan and Xiao Yunyun first. She walked over with a smile and said, “Come in. Aunt has something to tell you.”
Shen Yuechuan nodded gently and pushed Xiao Yunyun toward the living room.
Xiao Yunyun couldn’t stop her eyes from turning red as soon as she saw Su Yunjin. She lowered her head and burst into tears. She apologized in a low voice, “Mom, I’m sorry.”
Su Yunjin walked over and stroked Xiao Yunyun’s right hand. She wore a look of worry and asked, “Does the wound still hurt?”
Xiao Yunyun shook her head. “Not anymore.”
Su Yunjin stood up, looked at Shen Yuechuan and Xiao Yunyun, and said, “You don’t need to apologize to me. On the contrary, I’m the one who should apologize. If I had confessed Yunyun’s family background earlier, you would have been together long ago. Also, you wouldn’t have had to experience what happened in the past three days. Now, I should tell you the truth.”
Xiao Yunyun looked at Su Yunjin in surprise, both looking forward to and fearing what she would say next.
She hoped that Su Yunjin could prove that she was not Shen Yuechuan’s sister so that they could be together with Shen Yuechuan openly.
However, she was afraid that everything she was familiar with would be changed.
Su Yunjin handed Xiao Yunyun some papers and said, “Yunyun, I’m sorry. Your father and I are just a nominal couple.”
“After Yuechuan’s father died accidentally, my brother wanted to use Yuechuan to threaten me and force me to return to China and have a business marriage with an old man. I had no choice. At the same time, your father happened to need a wife in name. So we reached an agreement that he would pay off my debt and take me out of Su Hongyuan’s sphere of influence to live in Australia, and that I had to be his wife in name.”
“Yunyun, for so many years, your father and I are just friends.”
Xiao Yunyun could understand Su Yunjin’s words, but in a trance, she felt that every word Su Yunjin had said was strange and distant.
In her impression, although Su Yunjin and Xiao Guoshan had lived together for decades, they had never quarreled with each other. They treated each other politely in their daily lives, and they even often said thanks to each other.
However, she had always heard from her cla.s.smates that their parents had quarreled again. From time to time, she could even hear the news of her cla.s.smate’s parents’ divorce.
At that time, she was secretly glad that her parents were getting along with each other. They didn’t even quarrel with each other, let alone divorce.
Now, she finally understood why Su Yunjin and Xiao Guoshan had never quarreled with each other. Because they were just friends and partners in their lives.
Even so, there was still one thing that Xiao Yunyun couldn’t understand.
“Since you and Dad are just a nominal couple, why did you adopt me? According to the law, at the age of 18, I have the right to know my family background. But why didn’t you tell me that I was adopted?”
Su Yunjin wanted to say something but stopped on second thought. After thinking about it for a long time, she finally decided to tell Xiao Yunyun her family background.
