Linda Xia quietly finished her dinner.

After she put down her chopsticks, Johnson Xia coughed.


"Father," interrupted Linda, after she wiped her lips clean in a rather graceful fashion. "Am I to go with Young Master Mu even though today is my first day at home?"

"As you know, Linda, thing is..." Knowing he was in the wrong, Johnson explained to Linda with patience.

"Can I delay my departure for a day or two?" Linda looked up with eyes teeming with tears that resembled a rippling pond under an apricot tree.

Lisa snorted at her pitiful look.

"Don't you understand that the time of Young Master Mu is precious? Shame on you for putting on airs when he is already kind enough to make the journey here."

Looking at the disdain on Lisa's face, Linda gave Charles who were sitting next to her a grieving look. However, the grievance on her look only incurred a snort from Charles. "Quite an actress," thought he.

The clear disgust on Charles's look didn't escape the eyes of Linda who was pretending to be vulnerable.

Precious time?

Yeah, as if the time spent in the night club could be that precious!

The resemblance of the looks on both Lisa and Charles was uncanny. Linda thought that those two really belonged together. Let those two get married lest they went about wrecking other people's lives.

"Don't you know how many people would kill to marry Young Master Mu?"

What do I care?

Linda was about to retort, but after seeing the ingratiating and horny face of Lisa, she changed her mind.

"I know. Aren't you one of them?"

"Linda Xia!" The look on Lisa's face turned sour after her otherwise well-hidden secret being exposed in public.

"There indeed is no shortage of women like you who are racking their brains to marry Young Master Mu." Linda looked at Lisa with a sincere look. Seeing the restraining look on Lisa's face turn deep red, she then added in a devil-may-care tone. " How about you marry the Young Master Mu? "

The otherwise infuriated look on Lisa's face suddenly turned into a hearty smile when Lisa heard this remark.

May Shen was quick to spot the smile on Lisa'a face. That silly girl. How could she smile in here? She then kicked Lisa'a shoe hard under the table.

Lisa felt a strong kick and immediately dropped her smile. What remained of the smile got mixed up with anger and for a while her face was twisted.

Charles Mu watched what was going on on this table with cold eyes and found Linda's unyielding spirit quite challenging.

Nonetheless, he still had to find out what this girl was up to.

The way she played this hard-to-get trick spoke volumes about her sophisticated character.

"The marriage was arranged by elder members of both families, so there shall be no delay on this matter. " Charles Mu squinted at Linda like an old fox.

"But I just got here, and..." Brimming with tears, Linda continued to look at Johnson with misty eyes.

Johnson Xia had become restless. Although Lisa's words could sound a bit harsh, but nonetheless straightforward and true. Now, even Charles had spoken on this matter. Why is it so hard for this daughter to come around?

With this thought, a dash of impatience flashed through Johnson's mind and he frowned.

"Linda," said Johnson with a touch of exasperation in his tone, "You can not say no on this matter."

Upon hearing this, Linda kept her head down, her shoulders quivering, and Johnson's frown grew deeper. Seeing what happened, May Shen hurried to weigh in on the situation

"Lady Linda just got back. It is only natural that she is reluctant to leave."

"This astray girl was bent on returning home. Although she helped father get the contract, the whole thing still stinks of cons

piracy. I don't believe for a second that there is no ulterior motive behind her action," casually reminded Lisa.

This ongoing choir undermined Linda's image in the eyes of Johnson.

Charles Mu watched on the sideline with his lips slightly raised as those four put on this wonderful act.

He had a glimpse of the sobbing Linda and rather surprisingly, he grew an odd appetite to see her retaliation.

Even a feeble rabbit like her will bite when cornered.

As expected, Linda looked up at the gloomy face of Johnson and then at the mocking faces of May Shen and Lisa Xia with red eyes and shivering lips.

"But, tomorrow is the the death anniversary of my mother..."


It is as if a pebble was thrown into a tranquil lake, causing rings of ripples.

For a moment, the room was dead quiet. Not a word was heard except for Linda's muffled sobbing sound.

But there was no denying that this remark had stirred up a huge ripple effect for everyone.

Johnson had been hit the hardest. The long-lost daughter had just gotten home and he was already being this harsh and heartless as to push her out, no, more like sell her out at the death anniversary of his late ex-wife.

Beside, even then he was still being this aggressive and totally forgot the fact that tomorrow was the death anniversary of her mother.

No matter what had happened back then, the deceased shall be honored. Johnson now was engulfed in such an intense guilt that when he looked at Linda, all the words were caught up on the throat.

Linda knew her strategy had worked by the look at Johnson Xia, whose face was twitching, so she lowered her head while wiping her tears.

Upon hearing this, the look on the face of May Shen suddenly changed. The living would not stand a chance competing with the deceased, let alone the daughter of that bitch, who was as shrewd as a snake.

Lisa had no knowledge of any of these things. But she knew that her father would probably go soft when he heard about the death anniversary of Linda's mother and put off Linda's departure to the Mu clan.

Wasn't this a disguised blessing for her too?

With this thought, Lisa decided to side with Linda.

"Since it is her mother's death anniversary, I guess a day's delay won't hurt."

Johnson followed Lisa's words by saying, "Indeed we have a death anniversary to arrange. I am to blame for rushing this matter. May I ask Young Master Mu to wait a little longer?"

Charles nodded and fixed his gaze on Linda.

Ever since he ran into this girl, he had been constantly changing the way he thought about her.

"In this case, I guess a few more days won't be the end of the world."

Johnson felt relieved to hear Charles saying that, and Linda, who had been wiping out tears with her head down the whole time, gave a little smile with the tips of her lips slightly raised.

Charles Mu left the table after the dinner. Feeling guilty, Johnson sent a lot of stuff in compensation for her losses all those years.

It was not until midnight that Linda stopped her crying, and Johnson also went back to rest with tears still hanging on his face.

Linda quietly opened the window after Johnson left. She tip-toed along the windowsill and down to the outside of the kitchen.

Where there are women, there are gossips and cat fights.

As a firm believer of this principle, Linda crept into the corner of the kitchen back wall.

The kitchen on the back was where one could find most of the women in the Xia clan. Those elder women as well as young maids were all into gossips.

Sure enough, Linda had hardly crouched down in the corner of the wall when She heard the lively discussion inside.

"I dare say that Lady Lisa wants to marry Charles Mu."
