Her emotions did not change at all, as if she did not hear their conversation.

In fact, she would not have said such words if she had not heard the conversation.

The two of them looked at each other. Her attitude towards them was very strange. Even if she wasn’t angry, this shouldn’t be her reaction if she was a normal person who was ignored by her biological parents after leading a wandering life for many years before returning home.

She acted like she didn’t care about their attitude towards her.

Did she really not care? Or was she so innocent that she could not feel their dislike for her?

The two of them couldn’t figure it out.

However, no matter what the reason was, the fact that she could still talk to them with a smile on her face after hearing their conversation gave them an indescribable sense of strangeness.

However, this strange feeling was quickly ignored because the two of them agreed with what she said.

Indeed, the fact that Master Nine had personally sent her back to the Yan Family had probably alarmed many people. The Yan Family was also the number one family in North City. How could the families not pay attention to the fact that Master Nine had personally found the eldest daughter of the Yan Family?

After one night, most of the respectable families in North City would have already known that the eldest daughter of the Yan Family grew up in an orphanage. She was a country girl who quit school to work after graduating from junior high.

They were already disgraced.

At this thought, their expressions turned sullen again.

“Hmph! You’re proud instead of being ashamed!” Fu Ya didn’t want to find a teacher for Yan Jinyu. However, it was one thing if she didn’t want to, it was another thing if Yan Jinyu wasn’t willing.

From her point of view, Yan Jinyu telling them directly that there was no need for her to look for a teacher meant that she did not want to improve herself. She did not take her ignorance and experience as a disgrace and instead she took pride in it.

She disliked Yan Jinyu even more.

Yan Jinyu looked at her with a faint smile. “Mom, are you saying this now because you’ve forgotten who caused me to lead such a life all these years? If the person Mom and Dad saved back then was me, would I have suffered so?”

The two of them were in the wrong and hence they did not know how to respond to her.

Yan Qingyu finally spoke after a long while, “Since you have your memories from back then, you should know that the Yan Family couldn’t fork out that much ransom back then. We did let you down by saving Yun’er and not you, but as a member of the Yan Family, you should also bear some responsibility. It’s your duty to sacrifice yourself to protect the Yan Family at the moment of life and death.”

Yan Jinyu’s eyes darkened, and she changed her posture. She crossed her legs and supported her chin with one hand while her other hand tapped lightly on the table. She said rather nonchalantly, “In a moment of life and death? The Yan Family is the number one family in Northern City, but are we actually so weak? It’s just a shortage of funds, and it’s a matter of life and death?”

Yan Qingyu choked and he suddenly didn’t dare to meet her eyes for some reason.

He did not know if it was because he felt guilty or because her nonchalant attitude made him feel uneasy.

“A mere 100 million dollar ransom is not enough to make the Yan Family go bankrupt. Besides, with the Yan Family’s ability, how could you have not found someone to borrow a mere 100 million dollars? But back then, did Mom and Dad ever think of borrowing the money from someone?”

Seeing that the two of them remained quiet and avoided looking at her, Yan Jinyu chuckled again, “No, you didn’t. Or rather, you didn’t even think of borrowing from someone. After you saved Yun’er, you immediately called the police. You didn’t even consider whether the kidnappers would kill me because of this.”

“Father, Mother, do you want to know what the kidnappers did after you called the police back then and how I managed to escape from them? Speaking of which, if I didn’t escape back then, I’m afraid I would have died long ago. I wonder if it’s because I can’t bear to part with Father and Mother…” Her smile, coupled with the sound of her knocking on the table, was a little scary.

Fu Ya lost her grip on her fork and dropped it again. “Stop talking, I don’t want to hear it! I’m done eating, you guys eat!” With that said, she got up and left as if she was escaping.

She bumped into Yan Jinyun, who had just gotten up and came downstairs. “Mom, what’s wrong?”

Ever since she was young, Yan Jinyun had never seen her dignified mother lose her composure like this. Her gaze landed on Yan Jinyu, who was sitting at the dining table, and her eyes narrowed into slits.

Without even thinking, she knew that it must be related to Yan Jinyu!

It seemed like she was right not to underestimate Yan Jinyu anymore. Even her mother, who had always been very stable, had lost her composure.

Seeing that it was Yan Jinyun, Fu Ya’s pale and flustered expression eased up a little. It was only then that she realized that she was actually frightened by Yan Jinyu’s words!

She was shocked.

A little girl who was her biological daughter and not even eighteen years old, could actually scare her with just one sentence. Also, that girl’s gaze earlier was so frightening… However, it could also just be her imagination.

This girl was too weird!

Her heart was in turmoil, but she tried her best to keep a straight face. “It’s alright. Since you’re up, go have breakfast. I’ll go upstairs to get something… Oh right, don’t fight with her over the dining table. You’ll have to suffer for a while first. After you successfully marry into the Yin Family, we’ll teach her a lesson then.” However, she didn’t tell Yan Jinyun that she had told him not to provoke her because she felt that Yan Jinyu was a little strange.

Yan Jinyun only realized that Yan Jinyu was sitting in her seat when she heard that. She couldn’t help but be angry.

How dare you, Yan Jinyu. Not only did she steal the status of the eldest daughter of the Yan Family, she even dared to snatch her things! She only slowly suppressed her anger after she thought about Yan Qingyu’s instructions in the study room last night.

She would definitely settle these debts one by one after Yan Jinyu followed her lead!

“I know. Don’t worry, Mom. I’m not an impulsive person. On the other hand, Mom, don’t take her too seriously. At the end of the day, other than gaining Master Nine’s favor, she has no other strong points and no one to rely on.”

“Her greatest reliance is Master Nine’s favor,” Fu Ya said truthfully.

This was the truth. She had to admit it even if she didn’t want to.

Yan Jinyun was rendered speechless and she took a deep breath to suppress her anger, “Mom, don’t worry. What kind of person is Master Nine? Why would he really take a fancy to a country bumpkin like her who grew up without any education? I heard that it was because of Old Madam Yin’s last words that Master Nine spent so much effort to find her and bring her back. Old Madam Yin was very respected by Master Nine when she was still alive. Perhaps Master Nine wanted her to rest in peace so he fulfilled her last wish. He might not have really taken a fancy to Yan Jinyu.”

“Besides, if Master Nine really took a liking to her, he wouldn’t have sent her to the Yan Family the moment he found her and left her here.”

“You do have a point.”

Obviously, they had forgotten that Yan Jinyu had only returned last night. They had also forgotten Yin Jiujin’s abnormal behavior before he left the Yan family.

Or rather, they didn’t want to admit it, so they automatically ignored it.

“So we don’t have to worry too much. Even if Master Nine really likes her, so what? We all know what the Yin Family is? Would they let a country bumpkin like her into the family? After Old Madam Yin passed away, Master Nine’s mother was in charge of the Yin Family. She’s not someone who is easy to get along with.”

Fu Ya had thought of that too.

“You’re right. The person who has a relationship with your grandmother is Old Madam Yin, not the current wife of the head of the Yin Family. I heard that the current wife of the head of the Yin family already has a potential daughter-in-law that she likes. A country girl won’t be able to get any good reaction from her.” However, she forgot that if Yan Jinyu couldn’t get anything good from her, it would also be the same with Yan Jinyun.

However, even if Fu Ya had forgotten, Yan Jinyun hadn’t. The first lady of the Yin Family had always looked down on her. In her eyes, the Yan Family was just a small family.

Yan Jinyun’s expression turned a little grim as she thought about it. She didn’t want to discuss this matter anymore. “Alright, Mom. You can go upstairs. I’m going to have breakfast now.”
