Chapter 39: Sever Ties!
Shen Qianhui looked at her white-haired mother in front of her. After having spent 48 years together, she, an orphan who lacked kinship, had always valued the Shen Family.
However, she knew that it was time to cut things off clearly.
This was because if they didn’t do that, Matriarch Shen might directly go to the Chu Family to ask for cooperation. At that time, Matriarch Chu might make things difficult for Jingjing.
Seeing that Shen Qianhui did not speak for a long time, Madam Shen said patiently, “Qianhui, I’m not asking much from you. Either you help me settle the contract with Z Corporation or get the Chu Family to cooperate with us. If you’re too embarrassed to ask, I’ll go and talk to them…”
Her reply was as expected.
Shen Qianhui suddenly smiled.
“Qianhui, have you thought it through? If only you have done this earlier. We’re mother and daughter. Why do we have to be so distant? Regardless if it was Z Corporation or the Chu Family, the cooperation we want is not worth mentioning…”
Shen Qianhui interrupted her. “It’s true that these clothes were bought for me by the Shen Family…”
After saying that, she suddenly put both hands behind her back, pulled down the zipper, and then tugged off her clothes.
Matriarch Shen was slightly stunned. “W-What are you doing?”
She saw Shen Qianhui stretching out her slender arm and throwing the cheongsam in front of her.
“You can have it back.”
“I’ll pack all the clothes at home for you to take away later.”
“As for that one million dollars, I’ll think of a way to gather and return them to you…”
“Mother, with that, we don’t owe each other anything anymore, right?”
Matriarch Shen looked at her in a daze.
At this moment, Shen Qianhui’s expression was still gentle, but her eyes were filled with great disappointment and coldness. Matriarch Shen’s hands and feet felt chilly
She raised Shen Qianhui and understood her character.
Shen Qianhui looked gentle and amiable, and she was also polite and easy to talk to. However, that was actually just how she conducted herself. If she was really someone who was easily bullied by others, how could the Shen Family’s business prosper in her hands?
It was just that Shen Qianhui yearned for kinship, so she was especially tolerant of the Shen Family. It didn’t matter what Matriarch Shen had done to Shen Qianhui.
However, once such a woman made up her mind, it couldn’t be changed easily.
Matriarch Shen panicked. “Qianhui, Mother was just joking with you. Why did you take it seriously?”
She quickly bent over, picked up the clothing, and handed it to her. “Although you’re at home, how can you be doing this? It’s fine if it’s just Jing Zhen, but isn’t there a child around too? Hurry up and put it on!”
Shen Qianhui didn’t move but just looked at her quietly.
The smile on Matriarch Shen’s face slowly froze and then disappeared. In the end, Matriarch Shen threw the clothing on the ground in exasperation. “Shen Qianhui, I think you’re muddle-headed! You really want to sever ties with me?”
Shen Qianhui lowered her head. At this moment, she was wearing a white inner slip dress with straps. Her exposed shoulders were exceptionally thin. Even though she was already 48 years old, her body was as slender as a young girl’s.
However, her tone was firm. “Yes.”
Her daughter, Shen Ruojing, was her bottom line.
It was true that Shen Qianhui could not bear to part with Matriarch Shen. She admitted that she had an abnormal attachment to Matriarch Shen, but for the sake of her daughter, Shen Qianhui had to abandon Matriarch Shen.
“Excellent, excellent, this is really excellent!”
Matriarch Shen was overwhelmed with fury and exasperation. She stomped her feet and pointed at her. “But do you think that giving me these is enough? Don’t forget, it was me who raised you from a baby to this age!”
Jing Zhen took off his shirt and draped it over Shen Qianhui’s shoulders even if it meant he had to expose the upper half of his body. Although Shen Qianhui’s slip dress was enough to maintain her dignity, she seemed to have gained confidence the moment she put on his shirt.
That was right, even if she stripped everything that she had in the past, she still had her husband and daughter!
Jing Zhen might have looked thin and weak like a typical gigolo when he was dressed, but after taking off his clothes, the muscles on his body were obvious. He took a step forward, scaring Matriarch Shen so much that she took two steps back.
Jing Zhen sneered. “What else do you want?”

Matriarch Shen sneered. “If you want to completely sever ties with the Shen Family… fine! Then convert these mental losses into money to compensate me! I want cooperation with either the Z Corporation or Chu Corporation. You can pick one of the two.”
Jing Zhen’s peach blossom eyes flashed with a fierce look. “…Old woman, you really dare to ask for an exorbitant price.”
However, Matriarch Shen only looked at Shen Qianhui.
Shen Qianhui smiled bitterly. She suddenly rushed into the kitchen and walked out with a kitchen knife.
Jing Zhen gasped. “Honey, what are you doing? Don’t take things too hard and kill the old woman!”
Matriarch Shen was not afraid at first, but when Jing Zhen said this, she turned pale from shock. “Qianhui, w-what are you thinking of doing?”
Shen Qianhui looked at her and said in a trembling but firm voice, “I heard that each person has a total of ten bowls of blood in their bodies. I still have to keep this body to take care of the children and accompany my husband, so I can’t return it to you. Then I’ll return ten bowls of blood to you!”
With that, she raised the knife and slashed it at her wrist.
She moved quickly and without hesitation!
Jing Zhen’s expression changed drastically. He rushed over and grabbed her wrist, his face filled with disbelief and helpless indulgence. “You… Why are you so foolish?!”
Shen Qianhui’s tears fell.
Matriarch Shen’s expression was very cold. “Why? You can’t bear to continue anymore? Humans only have ten bowls of blood. If you want to return them to me, then do it all in one day!”
Jing Zhen frowned slightly. Just as he was about to speak, Shen Ruojing’s cold voice rang out. “This isn’t how the scores should be settled.”
Shen Ruojing slowly entered and stood between Matriarch Shen and her mother. She said slowly, “You raised her until she was 18 years old. When she went to university, she had to take care of her own living expenses and tuition fees. Back then, the Shen Family’s company was worth a few million dollars. It was only after she took over that the company expanded to have over 100 million in assets. If we were to take this into consideration, shouldn’t you guys return the Shen Corporation to my mother?”
Matriarch Shen was enraged. “Bullsh*t! The Shen Family…”
Before she could finish the rest of her sentence, Shen Ruojing suddenly raised her leg to hook the dining chair at the side and placed it down in front of her. The dining chair was made from solid wood and was very heavy. When it landed, it made a very loud sound.
Shen Ruojing then sat down on the chair. “Do you not agree? Then you can talk about it slowly.”
Matriarch Shen might dare to be unreasonable when facing Shen Qianhui. However, in the face of this fiend, how could Matriarch Shen dare to say anything?
“My mother is kind and doesn’t want to argue with you, so we won’t ask for the hundreds of millions that the Shen Family owes us.” Shen Ruojing waved her hand and narrowed her eyes. “Why are you still not leaving? Is it because you’re thinking of… discussing things further?”
Matriarch Shen was so angry that she glared at them before turning around furiously to leave. Before she left, she said, “Shen Qianhui, this isn’t over!”
After she left, Shen Ruojing stood up and moved the chair back. She then patted Jing Zhen’s shoulder and gestured at Shen Qianhui with her lips. “Father, I’ll leave things to you.”
Jing Zhen made an “okay” gesture with his hand.
Shen Ruojing walked upstairs and heard Jing Zhen comforting Shen Qianhui in a soft voice…
After lunch, Shen Ruojing brought Chu Yu out to look for Ye Lu.
She was planning to drive a car when she saw Chu Yu staring at her motorbike, his face filled with excitement. “Mommy, can we ride this?”
Shen Ruojing walked over and threw Chu Tianye’s helmet to him.
Chu Yu looked at the helmet and didn’t say anything.
Shen Ruojing noticed it and curled her lips, saying, “This is Little Ye’s. You can use it first. When we come back, I’ll bring you to buy a new one.”
Only then was Chu Yu satisfied and he nodded vigorously. “Alright, Mommy!”
Shen Ruojing got on the motorbike and kicked back the kickstand. After that, Chu Yu climbed up clumsily and wrapped his arms around her waist tightly. With a vroom, the motorbike drove off.
They soon arrived at Ye Lu’s clinic.
After Shen Ruojing was done parking, Ye Lu had her assistant bring Chu Yu to play while she led Shen Ruojing to the examination room. She sighed. “Baby, I’ve never asked you this, but what was going on exactly with that explosion back then?”
