Chapter 728: Lose Everything
Translator: Lonelytree Editor: Millman97
"Initially, even though it has been proven that you're not my biological daughter, I still felt in some ways indebted to you. But today, you two have completely disappointed me! I didn't think you two would stoop to such a level to slander me and Xinghe! I've given you two so many chances, but you've squandered them all. I didn't realize the two of you have such despicable personalities, but I guess this is a good thing, because it has allowed me to see the real you. From today onwards, our Shen family will no longer have anything to do with you two. I will pretend that I've raised two dogs instead. From now on, you two are not allowed to use the Shen family name anymore!"
Elder Shen's announce proved his determination. Shen Ru and Tong Yan were stunned speechless. Their faces were as ugly as they could be. Their plan that day was to take revenge against Xinghe and Elder Shen. Everything was going their way, but they didn't foresee the possibility that Xinghe could be Elder Shen's biological granddaughter.
Now, their revenge plot had completely resolved and had enraged Elder Shen to such a point that he was going to completely cut all ties from them. At that point, Shen Ru and Tong Yan finally understood the meaning of fear.
Why were they so stupid? Coming after the Shen family would give them no benefits. Earlier, when the Shen family stayed away from them, they could still survive in City A using the Tong family's name. But now, Elder Shen had stated his intention to disown them in front of everyone, who else would dare to align themselves with them in the future?
The Shen family was the biggest family in City A after the Lin family had been taken down. Without the Shen family's backing, who dared to befriend them and earn the Shen family's ire?
Even the Tong family would probably start to isolate them!
Therefore, they had really taken the wrong step this time. Their life had completely been ruined.
Shen Ru suddenly cried out in fear, "Father, I'm sorry, I was wrong. Please forgive me, it is because I am unable to part from you that I did such things. Dad, please don't disown us, you cannot treat us this way…"
However, Elder Shen had already seen through her ploy. She had shown him who she really was. Elder Shen would never trust them again. From his perspective, all their begging had to be hiding an ulterior motive.
He even regretted showing them compassion earlier, because the way they repaid his compassion was to take revenge against him. Elder Shen was chilled to his core by their pretenses.
Therefore, no matter how hard Shen Ru begged or confessed, Elder Shen was unmoved. The only emotion he felt was disappointment.
Shen Ru noticed that the crowd that had sided with her earlier had slowly moved away from her corner and she cried with even greater despair. No one was willing to come to her aid. She finally realized how badly she had screwed up, but it was already too late.
Looking at her distraught mother, Tong Yan felt that chilling despair grab at her soul…
Right then, Elder Tong suddenly parsed through the crowd to give her a slap on her face and lectured her severely, "Look at this mess the two of you have created! From now on, you are not allowed to take one step out of the house or else the Tong family will disown the two of you as well!"
Tong Yan looked at her grandfather who would love her unconditionally with shuddering eyes. Am I going to lose everything?
Even their space in the Tong family had dwindled. After losing the Shen family's support, her and her mother's positions were no longer that precious.
