Chapter 9.4 – Children Are Debt
Xue Zi Xuan understood Xue Rui’s nature. He only valued the family property, power, and status. His wife and children all had to stand off to the side.
In the last life, in order to curry favor with Xue Yan, Xue Rui abandoned Xue Jing Yi. In this life, for the sake of the seat under his buttocks, he could give up on Xue Jing Yi once again.
Xue Zi Xuan knew. Xue Rui’s choice would not change.
Sure enough, Xue Rui remained silent for a long time, and finally said, “Zi Xuan, you grew up. Dad didn’t expect you to grow up so well. You are the pride of Dad.” Pretending to sigh, he waved his hand, “All right, you go back. Dad is tired and wants to stay here alone for a bit. The Xue family is yours sooner or later. No need to worry*.”
[*T/N: The word used here is 急 ji, which means “urgent, pressing, worried, or anxious,” so the last sentence can also be translated as “No need to be in such a hurry (to oust me from my seat).” But of course, Xue Rui is trying to make it sound like he is still in control, so I went with “No need to worry,” as if XR is the one trying to reassure XZX.]
Xue Zi Xuan nodded with an expressionless face. Then he pushed the door open and left.
Xiao Zhou, who was standing outside by the door, greeted him immediately and hesitantly said, “Young Master, do I still need to send…” The rest of the words were forcefully swallowed back, because the young man’s gaze was way too sharp and sinister, as if he wanted to hack Xiao Zhou into itty-bitty pieces.

Xiao Zhou was cowardly, he nodded slightly, and then he escaped at flying speed.
When he closed the door, Xue Zi Xuan carelessly added, “There is one more thing I forgot to mention. Fu Bo and Xiao Wang know too much. It is best for Father to deal with it cleanly.”
He was a person who was able to contend with Xue Yan for a lifetime and not be completely beat down and suppressed. To handle these odds and ends, it was not necessary to do the job himself. Whoever tried to poke their head out, he’d just make them deal with the aftermath.
Xue Rui waved his hand and said that he knew. He lit up a cigarette and took a huge drag of the cancer stick. His eyes were filled with shadowed ruthlessness as he calculated.
He could not touch his son and Huang Yi, but he could still deal with a couple of small timers. If Fu Bo was faithful, then he could let him go, but Xiao Wang’s greed was too heavy, he could not leave this trouble alone.
Xue Zi Xuan finished dealing with Father Xue and turned to deal with Mother Xue. He went to Xue Jing Yi’s bedroom and found that she was not there.
“Brother, have you come to see me? Quickly, come over and sit down.” Xue Jing Yi patted her bedside, her expression one of joyous excitement. As long as her brother was willing to come see her, she could immediately fling Fu Bo to the furthest reaches of her mind.
Xue Zi Xuan pretended not to hear, turned a blind eye on her, and closed the door with his backhand. Then he went to Xue Li Dan Ni’s bedroom.
Xue Jing Yi’s bright smile slowly twisted, and finally froze into bitter resentment.

When Xue Li Dan Ni finished visiting her daughter, she heard her husband and son arguing in the study, so she went down to find the little mongrel to settle the score. She went straight in without knocking on the door, and she was shocked when she saw the guest room that was changed beyond recognition.
The originally empty room now had two huge bookshelves full of mechanical books. The 1.5-meter single bed was replaced with a 2-meter double bed. A high low dual-use desk was placed next to the window. There were two laptops place on it, one closed and one opened.
At that moment, the little bastard that turned the Xue family upside down was staring attentively at the screen, and his fingers pitter-pattered rapidly on the keyboard.
This was a room full of life. It looked warm and comfortable, but it made Xue Li Dan Ni’s heart continually tighten. She walked to the bathroom door and glanced inside quickly. Sure enough, all the items inside were in pairs: couple water cups, couple towels, couple slippers, and couple toothbrushes… Anything that could be in a pair was in a pair.
She choked on her next breath. Her complexion became paler and paler, and her expression twisted in malevolence.
Zhou Yun Sheng knew that Xue Li Dan Ni had come in, but he didn’t want to bother with the other party. He now had absolutely no need to act with the Xue family.
Anyway, Xue Jing Yi’s body was still weak, and they had to let him eat well and drink well in the meanwhile. By the time Xue Jing Yi’s body recovered enough and was ready for surgery, he would probably be rid of the system by then.
What? You’re asking what if he doesn’t break away from the system in time? Silly. Then he would just irritate Xue Jing Yi again and continue to have her lie down. Was it not easy to pinch a sick seedling?
If Xue Li Dan Ni knew the real thoughts of the teenager, then it was estimated that she would blow up. Of course, she was close to exploding right now. She walked over to the desk, just as she was about to open her mouth to berate him angrily, her son came in.

“Mother, Father has something to say to you.” Xue Zi Xuan walked in slowly.
“If there is anything to say then say it tomorrow!” Xue Li Dan Ni’s expression was livid.
“It’s a matter of life and death for the Xue family.” Xue Zi Xuan opened the door and made a gesture of ostracism.
Xue Li Dan Ni hesitated, looked at the little bastard, looked at her son, and then turned to leave. “I will come settle the score with you later!”
However, there was no so-called “later.”
Xue Li Dan Ni entered the study, and soon after she exited with her face pale. Her footsteps were heavy, as if she had lost her soul. Was this man really the son she gave birth to after carrying him in her belly for ten months? How could he be so cruel? How could he be so ruthless!
