The Little Princess’s Married-in Boyfriend (2)
It seemed to be the bashfulness of a mature man, inadvertently stirring up other people’s hearts.
Bai Weiwei was astonished. This expression, this stoic and natural and seductive performance–all the dramatiques had to give way.
If not for the system’s notification.
She’d have believed that this Xu Menggui had truly fallen in love with her at first sight.
【Ding, the male lead’s favorability is -25.】
-25, behaving like a favorability of 95.
Bai Weiwei immediately raised her spirits.
Dramatic and exaggerated, two gleaming eyes.
“Weiwei, which one do you like?” A middle-aged man beside her asked.
Bai Weiwei turned her head and saw Bai Qingshui, the father of this body’s original host.
The hair at his temples was a bit gray, but he still had a handsome countenance. He had crows feet at the corners of his eyes, but he carried a mature man’s charm.
He dotingly watched her.
Her identity this time was the only daughter of the patriarch of the Bai family, N City’s wealthiest and most powerful family.
Flattered and worshipped by thousands of people, the object of adoration wherever she went.
When the little princess came of age, Bai Qingshui began to look for a son-in-law who could be part of the Bai family3.
For fear that Bai Weiwei would be wronged, he selected young men who were motivated and handsome, and whose family background was inferior to the Bai family.
The three men who came this time.
Were already the sixth batch.
Once one married Bai Weiwei, he would be the Bai Corporation’s future successor.
Who wouldn’t come running4?
Bai Qingshui had only one request, and that was for his daughter to like him.
The one who Bai Weiwei liked could be the son-in-law.
For men, it was a great shame to become part of the wife’s family.
But becoming the son-in-law of the Bai family was like winning the lottery.
Bai Qingshui made it clear that he wanted to train the successor. He couldn’t bear to let Bai Weiwei suffer, so he would place his focus on the son-in-law.
In order to prevent the outflow of the family property, he also set rigid inheritance conditions for the son-in-law.
So each of them did their utmost to please Bai Weiwei.
Xu Menggui was one of the men who applied for the position of son-in-law.
The data showed that Xu Menggui came to destroy the Bai family.
Xu Menggui was the illegitimate son of the Xu family.
His mother, Han Ling, liked Bai Qingshui very much when she was young, but Bai Qingshui only loved Bai Weiwei’s mother.
Han Ling was unresigned, so she became the Xu family head’s mistress and gave birth to Xu Menggui.
Because she was a mistress, she had some authority, and she used some of this authority to approach Bai Qingshui.
Bai Qingshui was loyal, and he was disgusted with Han Ling.
He even drove Han Ling out of a Bai family banquet in front of everybody.
Han Ling’s love became hatred. She used her authority to obtain information about one of the Bai family’s big businesses and leaked it to others.
Causing the business to fail.
She even planned to hit Bai Qingshui with her car, dying together with him.
As Bai Weiwei read the data up to here, she only felt that Han Ling was simply the model vicious woman ah.
Until how old did she chase after a man?
Couldn’t she be nicer to herself?
In the end, Han Ling didn’t succeed. Instead, she crashed to her death.
This completely infuriated Bai Qingshui, who at the time had been together with Bai Weiwei’s pregnant mother.
If Han Ling had succeeded, the one to die would not only have been him, but also his wife and child.
Enraged, he went all out to suppress the Xu family.
The Xu family paid a huge price to calm Bai Qingshui’s anger.
And after this huge blow, the Xu family was devastated. They became a third-rate family, as well as the target of everyone’s ridicule.
And the Xu family vented their stifling, unbearable anger on Xu Menggui.
Who let this be the work of his vicious mother?
Han Ling died, and someone had to stand in to atone.
And so Xu Menggui became the target of bullying. From youth until now, men and women, young and old, all of them abused him and oppressed him.
He did not erupt from the silence.
But he became abnormal.

2: 小公举 – a cutesy way of saying “princess”.↩
3: 入赘 – to go and live with one’s wife’s family, in effect becoming a part of her family (an “adopted son-in-law,” so to speak). I believe the tradition is for the wife to live with her husband’s family, so this would be highly uncommon, even looked down on.↩
4: 趋之若鹜 – to rush like ducks; the mob scrabbles madly for something unattainable.↩
