Big Shot’s Reincarnation Sweeps the World - Chapter 119
Sheng Yuxi was still looking at her with that complicated look. Without interrupting, he let Sheng Yue finish.
Only then did Sheng Yue realize that Third Brother was looking at her silently. She raised her eyebrows. “What’s the matter?”
“Yueyue, let me ask you something.”
“Have you ever spoken up for my sister when the rumors fly around? Even once?” Sheng Yuxi solemnly looked at Sheng Yue, and the time they spent together in the past came to mind.
Sheng Yue had always been sensible and considerate. Everyone said she was a good girl.
Sheng Yue was stunned then looked away. “What rumors?”
When Sheng Yuxi saw her pretending to act ignorant, his heart was like a leaking boat, sinking deeper and deeper. He patiently explained, “They say Yangyang is my dad’s illegitimate daughter.”
“Oh, that…” Sheng Yue turned and said firmly, “Of course I’ve spoken up for her. How could I just sit by and watch them slandering Yangyang and smearing the Sheng Family?”
“Really?” Sheng Yuxi lowered his head, stirred his latte, and said no more.
“Third Brother, don’t you believe me?” Sheng Yue was anxious. “I really have.”
“OK,” Sheng Yuxi grunted in response, pondering.
Lowering his head, Sheng Yuxi was thinking about what his friends at Yan City High School told him.
His friends said they were sorry. They failed to speak up against the rumors for him although they had tried. Because of Sheng Yue’s ambiguous remarks, no one believed them. Her words gave everyone the feeling that she was concealing the truth to preserve the Sheng Family’s dignity.
This was the Sheng Family’s business, so it was difficult for them to intervene too much.
Now that Sheng Yuxi had asked them about the rumors, they told him everything they knew. They said they felt really sorry for the victim of the rumor, Sheng Yang, and couldn’t understand why Sheng Yue had acted that way.
Sheng Yue was also from the Sheng Family. If she hadn’t said what she had, the rumors wouldn’t have been circulated to this degree.
When Sheng Yuxi heard that, he fell silent. He was pure-minded, but he wasn’t a fool.
It wasn’t only one friend who said this but all his friends at Yan City High School…
Suddenly, a hot liquid dripped on the back of his hand, disrupting his thoughts. Sheng Yuxi looked up only to see that Sheng Yue had stood up, her eyes red and her face covered with tears. He was frightened.
“Third Brother, I grew up with you. Don’t you know what kind of person I am? Why do you believe the rumors people say about me…” Her shoulders twitched in anger.
“Yes, you do. You’re too much! I’m too disappointed in you!” Sheng Yue grabbed her school bag and left without looking back.
“Hey… Yueyue!” Sheng Yuxi was at a loss.
That night, Sheng Yuxi had already put on his pajamas, but lying on the bed, he tossed and turned and couldn’t fall asleep.
He didn’t dare to tell his parents about this. What if his parents blamed Yueyue?
There was no solid evidence so he didn’t know whom to believe. In the end, he decided to turn to his second brother for help.
Second Brother was the most gentle one in the family. Even if he told Second Brother, he would keep this secret, so Sheng Yuxi knocked on his second elder brother’s door.
At this time, Sheng Hanjing was still reading. In addition to music, he was also studying for a degree in psychology because he liked to study human nature.
