The Yun Familys Greed
Translator: Mr Voltaire
Perhaps no one else would think too much when he or she heard what SuEr said. After all, it was possible that she was still feeling sensitive about what happened to Ling Tian City. However, Ling Chen was unable to disregard this. Even as he walked to the Administrative District, he was still thinking about what SuEr had said, and he thought of all sorts of possibilities however, the Forgotten God Representative had definitely been affected by the Soulstealing Curse, and the Forgotten Emperor definitely wouldnt dare to attack again even if he was 10 times as brave. Even if he did go mad and attack Ling Tian City, he wouldnt be able to be much of a threat. Whats more, Ling Chen had the Underworld supporting him, so even the Dragon Clan and Moon God Clan would have to think about it seriously before attacking.
At that moment, Ling Chen saw 3 middle-aged men walking towards him. The 3 of them evidently were not battle profession players, and they had very low levels. However, they were dressed in expensive clothing and jewelry, and they didnt have a single piece of battle equipment on them. The 3 of them walked side by side, and their faces were raised, not even bothering to look at Ling Chen. It seemed like they were quite used to being proud and arrogant. Seeing the direction in which they were walking, Ling Chen slightly frowned, slowed down, and watched them as they stopped in front of the Administrative Districts Main Tower.
Apologies, this is where the leaders of the city do important business, so if you do not have an appointment, please do not enter.
This was the centre of Ling Tian Citys Administrative District, the core of Ling Tian City. Yun Meng Xin, Li Xiao Xue, and others who were working on the development of the city were in here, and those who were standing guard naturally were not ordinary players but 2 young Celestial grade Fairies.
Although these 3 middle-aged men had come over quite suddenly, the Fairies still courteously warned them not to come closer. However, the middle-aged man on the right angrily yelled, Get out of the way and let us in!
The 2 Fairies simultaneously frowned, but they continued to speak in a polite tone, Without an appointment or the Ladys permission, no one is allowed to enter here. Apologies
I dont want to repeat myself. The middle-aged man who had spoken became quite angry. From the look of it, he was used to being higher than everyone else, and he put no one in his eyes. These 2 Fairies looked almost the same as humans, so they were taken to be 2 player guards. As such, let alone speaking courteously, they didnt even put these Fairies in their eyes at all. Immediately get out of the way and take us to see the Lady of the city not everyone can be stopped by you! Do you know who I am? The Lady of your city is my niece! This is her Third Uncle, and this is her father! If you waste our time, well make you regret it!
In the distance, Ling Chen still hadnt left, and his eyes started to narrow. At that moment, Xiao Qi happened to walk by. Just as she was about to call out to him, Ling Chen hurriedly waved her over and made a signal not to speak. Xiao Qi stared for a moment before looking over, and her face fell as her cheeks puffed out angrily. Hmph! Its big sister Meng Xins father and 2 uncles. They actually came here to see her. Im sure theyre not here for anything good.
Ai! Dont say such things, these 2 little brothers evidently dont know who they are. After all, theyre just diligently doing their job, The middle-aged man in the middle spoke, speaking somewhat pleasantly to the 2 Fairy guards. 2 little brothers, I am Lady Yuns father, and I have urgent business with her. Please take us to see her immediately.
As Ling Tian City developed, Lady Yun Meng Xins name was also known across all the lands. Adding on her breathtaking beauty, she became world-famous. When Fey called her the most famous woman in the world, she was not exaggerating at all. Her identity as Chinas Yun family financial groups heiress was also made known, causing the Yun family financial group to also greatly benefit. Although Ling Tian City had only been established for 2 months, the benefits that the Yun family financial group had received due to being associated with Yun Meng Xin were not small at all. As Yun Meng Xins relatives, especially close relatives, they felt that their status had been lifted up as well.
As Yun Meng Xins father, Yun Zheng Fan was incredibly pleased, and he started to look down on even the Li family, who he had only been able to look up at before so what if the Li family was powerful in the past? The Yun family has the most powerful daughter in the world, and the Li familys daughter is my daughters subordinate!
Now, the way everyone looked at him was completely different. Because of the massive influence that Ling Tian City had within the virtual world, countless rich and powerful people, including those whose statuses were far above his, tried to curry favour with him so that they could establish themselves within Ling Tian City. This made Yun Zheng Fan feel giddy with joy, and he felt that he didnt have to put anyone in his eyes.
Facing these 2 player guards, they revealed their identities, expecting to scare these guards senseless. They fully expected the guards to start acting humble and immediately take them to see Yun Meng Xin, but the 2 Fairies only calmly glanced at them. The 3 middle-aged mens arrogance angered even them, and standing guard was their job no matter who it was that approached. One of the Fairies expressionlessly said, I dont care who you are. If you dont have an appointment or the Ladys permission, please immediately leave this place. If you dont leave, well be required to force you out.
You! Yun Zheng Fans expression froze, and his face became a pig-livered colour. He never would have thought that 2 mere guards would dare to treat him this way given his status. This felt even worse than being looked down on by those who had higher status than him, and he was instantly infuriated. I tried to be polite, but you 2 refused. Didnt you hear who your elder is? Immediately piss off! If you continue being so blind, your elder will make you disappear from here with a single sentence! Scram!
Beside him, the other 2 men were furious, and they started to loudly curse at the Fairies. If this was the real world, they would have immediately called for their people to beat them up. At this moment, a gentle and cold voice sounded out, Whats going on?
Just those 3 words alone were able to calm down the entire situation. As the voice sounded out, Yun Meng Xin slowly walked out, wearing a plain white dress, looking completely otherworldly.
Lady Yun. Seeing that Yun Meng Xin had personally come out, the 2 Fairy guards stepped to one side and slightly bowed as they greeted her. Yun Zheng Fan glared at the 2 Fairies and coldly harrumphed before smiling and rushing up to Yun Meng Xin with the other 2 men. Ah, Meng Xin, so you really were here. Your second Uncle, your third Uncle, and I have come to see you.
Meng Xin, youve become even prettier after not seeing you for months. You truly have the airs of the Lady of a city.
No less than expected from the daughter of the Yun family. As elders, we cant help but rejoice.
Facing their big smiles, Yun Meng Xin was instead quite calm. Welcome to Ling Tian City. I have many things to do, so if you have any business, please state it. If you dont, feel free to take a look around the city.
Yun Zheng Fans expression did not change. Evidently, he was used to Yun Meng Xins attitude towards him. He chuckled before replying, Of course we have business with you. He then looked to both sides as he said, There are too many people here; lets talk inside.
No need, we can talk here, Yun Meng Xin replied expressionlessly.
Yun Zheng Fans face stiffened, but he immediately regained his composure as he nodded and said, Very well. Its actually the same thing that I talked to you about last time Ling Tian City is becoming larger and larger, and managing this place must be getting harder and harder. As a girl, the burden on you is simply too great, so how could I, as your father, not worry about you? Youre my daughter, and one of the successors of the Yun family. The Yun family has the responsibility to bear part of the burden for Ling Tian City
He stopped speaking, and Ling Chen, who had been silently watching, raised his eyebrows and gave coldly smiled. The Yun familys greed was evident with Ling Tian City developing like this, anyone would feel envious. With Yun Meng Xin as the Lady of Ling Tian City, how could they just sit by? Evidently, they wanted control over Ling Tian City as well.
Beside Ling Chen, Xiao Qi angrily stamped her feet, and she said in a low and furious voice, So its this again! Before, they treated her so poorly, but now that shes the Lady of the city, theyve started acting like this. Before, they continuously harassed big sister Meng Xin, forcing her to move. She even changed her phone number, and now theyve come to find her in the city theyre simply too shameless!
Yun Meng Xin had not returned to the Yun family this entire time. After becoming famous overnight, Ling Chen did not worry about her safety because Gui Ya was personally protecting her. Now that Yun Meng Xin had secretly moved to Xiao Qis residence, with the Battle Alliance protecting her, she was completely safe.
Thats right, thats right; youre the Yun familys daughter, so your city is naturally the Yun familys city. Our family should be doing everything we can to help you. Even though I, your Second Uncle, am not very familiar with the virtual world, your cousin Yun Lan is quite familiar with it. Adding on our finances, well be able to make Ling Tian City even more prosperous.
Haha, Third Uncle helping his niece is right and proper. Thats right, I heard that the newly expanded region doesnt have anyone managing it yet. How about allowing Third Uncle to manage it? Dont you know your Third Uncles abilities?
Hearing their words, rage was written all over the 2 Fairies faces, and they looked at Yun Meng Xin worriedly. Both of them could tell that these 3 men were Lady Yuns relatives, but their words and actions completely disgusted them. These sorts of people managing Ling Tian City was something that they could not accept.
Yun Meng Xin listened to them until they finished speaking without any changes in her eyes. Evidently, she already knew why they had come. She calmly looked over at them as she said softly, I understand. I have many things to do, so forgive me for being unable to entertain you. If theres nothing else, please return.
Ai, ai Meng Xin! Yun Zheng Fan hurriedly walked up and said hurriedly, I know youre busy, but but at least tell us whether its a yes or a no so that we can make preparations.
Yun Meng Xin looked at him and said, Ill repeat myself again: Ling Tian City doesnt just belong to me; it has many owners, and Im simply managing it. What youre asking for isnt something that I can decide by myself.
But, but youre the Lady of the city. If you cant decide, who can? Were doing this for you! Yun Zheng Fan said.
Thank you for your kindness, but Im unable to make a decision on what youve proposed. Yun Meng Xin didnt bother explaining her words and turned to leave.
Yun Zheng Fans face twisted, but he did not have the guts to fly into a fit of rage in front of Yun Meng Xin. He lightly breathed in and said sorrowfully, Meng Xin, make sure you think about this. I know I owe you too much, but in the end, Im your father, and youre the Yun familys daughter. Putting all else aside, it was the Yun family that brought you up, and now that youve become so reputable, it should be time that you repaid the Yun family.
Yun Meng Xin remained silent.
Xiao Qi was so angry that her face became completely red. Despicable! Theyre too despicable! They know that big sister Meng Xin has a soft heart, and theyre starting to attack her emotions! Why dont they think about how they treated big sister Meng Xin back then? They completely disregarded her wishes and happiness, and used her as a tool for the family. In the end, she wasnt even willing to return home, so they forbade anyone, including Yun Feng, from helping her theyre simply toooooo shameless!
Dont worry, Meng Xin will know what to do, Ling Chen replied as he smiled.
Ai. Yun Zheng Fan gave another long sigh as he continued to speak, Meng Xin, I dont want to force you, but please think about what I, and your Second Uncle and Third Uncle, have said. Theres also something else tomorrow is your grandpas 70th birthday banquet, and you havent come home in a long time. This time, as the Yun familys daughter, you absolutely must come back and stay for a while. After all, thats your home Ive even prepared your room for you.
Alright, Yun Meng Xin replied as she returned to the Administrative Districts Main Tower.
The 3 men looked at each other and shook their heads before leaving unhappily.
Theyve finally left. Ill go and comfort big sister Meng Xin. She must be feeling terrible right now. After the Yun familys 3 men left, Xiao Qi quickly ran into the Administrative Districts Main Tower.
Ling Chen stood there and frowned as he thought for a while. He picked up his communication device and said in a low voice, Gui Ya, if nothing out of the ordinary happens, Yun Meng Xin will be attending her grandfathers 70th birthday banquet tomorrow. Keep her safe; its best to bring a few people.
