C16 A Move She Has Used

As soon as they had gone home, Lyi Jiaming asked them the long-awaited question. "How was school today?"

Lyi Yueyi bowed her head. "Dad, the curriculum's slightly more advanced than my previous school," she whispered. "I couldn't keep up. I tried asking Xi, but..."

She glanced over at Lyi Chuxi before shaking her head.

"Xi must've been preoccupied and ignored me the whole time. Please don't blame her...I—I understand."

He pursed his lips.

"Xi, what's going on?" He glanced over at her. "Yueyi has just arrived, and you're already focused on something else? What matter's more important than your younger sister?"

The aggrieved expression on Lyi Yueyi's face appeared to be more intense, but her eyes flashed with unspoken pride.

Ha! Now, she's finally getting scolded!

Lyi Chuxi quickly bowed her head.


She choked out.

Although Lyi Jiaming knew that she wasn't his biological daughter, he was still the one who raised her for the last nineteen years.

Seeing her in such a forlorn state, his face softened and his heart twinged.

"What's wrong?"

"The entire school knows I'm not your biological daughter," she stuttered. "They kept pointing at me and saying some unpleasant words. I was...I didn't know what to do—that's why I wasn't able to teach her. I didn't mean to—I'm...I'm sorry, Dad."

Lyi Yueyi's heart skipped a beat when she heard her father's panicked words.

"Yueyi was the one who spilled it," she murmured, sniffling. "I know she didn't do it on purpose. Perhaps she didn't notice that there were a lot of people at the time she said it, so I had no choice but to admit it. I'm sure she didn't mean it—please don't blame her!"

Although Lyi Chuxi emphasized that he shouldn't blame her, she was already pointing a finger directly at her!

Lyi Yueyi gritted her teeth.

This was clearly a move that she had often used.

Lyi Jiaming turned to look over at her.

"Yueyi, what's wrong with you? Do you know that your classmates are made up of heiresses and heirs of different families from the Imperial Capital? Arre you trying to humiliate us?"

Although Lyi Yueyi was his biological daughter, they hadn't previously bonded in the last nineteen years, and their relationship hadn't fully developed.

Besides, she was also not as important as the reputation of their family.

The matter of Lyi Chuxi not assisting her had been thrown to the back of his mind.

"Dad," she stuttered. "I..."
