Chapter 54: Blood for Blood
Update 7 days ago
Although Xiao Rou might use Xiao Sa and Xiao Jing to achieve her aims, and even take revenge on her biological family with the influence of her foster family, she would never do anything to hurt them. This was her intuition.
Hearing them hurriedly defending Xiao Rou, He Wanzhou shook his head with a smile, saying, "I can never figure out what you artists are thinking."
He Wanning and He Wanyi exchanged looks in the rearview mirror and shrugged.
As soon as Tang Xi got on the car, she began to doze off. Xiao Sa, looking at her sleepy face, couldn't help asking, "Weren't you in good spirits just now? Why are you dozing off the moment you got on the car?"
Tang Xi shook her head. "I've been sleepy for a long time, but I was holding on hard. I'm still growing, and I really need sleep."
Tang Xi had discovered a problem; every time her experience points increased, she would be tired and sleepy over a period of time. The last time she had this kind of experience, she thought it was because she drank some wine, but today she didn't drink yet still felt sleepy. It seemed that she had to ask 008 about this tomorrow.
Sleepily thinking of this, Tang Xi fell asleep. When she woke up, it was already the next morning. She got up, washed herself and went downstairs only to find her brothers were already working out in the garden. Tang Xi cheerfully ran out. When she saw Xiao Yao was also there, her eyes lit up and she asked him, "Yao, are you busy today?"
Staring at the face that suddenly appeared in front of him, Xiao Yao paused, then nodded, reached out his hand to rub at Tang Xi's hair and said in a deep voice, "I'm going to the capital this afternoon, and I'll be back in a few days."
Tang Xi curled her lip and Xiao Yao immediately asked, "What's up?"
Tang Xi said, "I'm wondering if you can teach me self-defense. Jing and Sa both said you are a Kung Fu master. Can you teach me that?"
Seeing their sister run straight to Xiao Yao and curry favor with him without greeting them, Xiao Jing and Xiao Sa was quite upset. Then hearing that she wanted Yao to teach her self-defense, they immediately protested, "Rourou, we are also good at Kung Fu! You, as a girl, just need to learn some self-defense. Why do you make it so complicated?"
Tang Xi raised her eyebrows, while Xiao Yao gave them a dark look. Xiao Sa and Xiao Jing immediately shut up and shrugged. "We didn't say anything."
Xiao Yao ignored them and said with a smile to Tang Xi, "Your body is not yet ready for learning Kung Fu. Do some running when you get up in the morning and then practice your aerobics. When your physical condition is better, I'll be your coach."
Tang Xi's eyes lit up. "Really?"
Xiao Yao nodded. "So while I'm in the capital for the next few days, you can work out at home. When I come back, I'll teach you some Kung Fu if you can meet the physical standard."
Xiao Hongli came jogging over and asked them, "What are you talking about?"
"Dad, your oldest son is going to turn your youngest daughter into a tough girl!" Xiao Jing immediately complained. "Isn't it too cruel for him to change such a tender and cute girl into a violent tough girl?"
Xiao Hongli's eyes lit up and he looked at Tang Xi, asking, "Is Rourou going to learn boxing?"
Tang Xi chuckled and jumped to hold Xiao Hongli's arm. "Dad, I want to learn self-defense. Do you think it's okay?"
"Absolutely okay!" Xiao Hongli's eyes grew darker and brighter. "If anyone dares to covet my daughter, I will send him to Spain with my fists. If you learn self-defense, then I won't need to worry about your safety when I go to work every day."
Tang Xi: "?????? Dad, your idea is really unusual!"
In fact, what Xiao Hongli wanted more was for his elder brother to regretfully come beg Xiao Rou to return, and then get punched in the face by his daughter.
He felt so excited just thinking of it!
Hearing their dad's words, Xiao Sa and Xiao Jing suddenly thought their dad talked a great deal of sense. No one knew how beautiful their sister would become. Even now, there were already so many people eyeing her. If she became more beautiful in the future, there would be many men drooling over her! It would be better to have Yao, a Kung Fu master, to train her. Anyone who dared to hit on their sister would have to beat her first!
Oh, the thought of it alone had made them excited!
Having no idea what her two brothers were thinking of, Tang Xi was glad that she would be able to gradually increase her Martial Points. Just now, when she was washing herself, she had asked 008 why she would feel tired every time her experience points were increased, and 008 told her that was because her Physical and Martial Points were too low! So among all the experience points, she had to improve the two first.
Only with good Physical and Martial Points could she develop in other aspects!
Tang Xi began to practice her aerobics. Half an hour later, Yang Jingxian came out and called them to have breakfast. After breakfast, Xiao Yao said, "I'm free this morning. Let me send Rourou to school."
Tang Xi was okay with it. The other two brothers wanted to object, but dared not. Xiao Hongli was as busy as ever, and Yang Jingxian wanted to go to the Yang Family, so in the end, no one objected to it.
On the way, Tang Xi asked Xiao Yao where he had been yesterday. Xiao Yao casually answered with the name of a place, and Tang Xi didn't ask any more. She knew it wouldn't be good for her if she knew too much about Xiao Yao's job. Xiao Yao asked her, "How did you feel on the first day of school?"
"Not bad." Tang Xi smiled. "And last night I went to your friend's party with Sa and Jing, and they were all friendly to me."
Xiao Yao nodded. "Have they come to know of what happened to you?"
Tang Xi nodded, and Xiao Yao said, "You don't need to let everyone know about your affairs. You are the biological daughter of our family."
Warmth welled up within her. She knew Xiao Yao was worried that people might treat her differently. "Yao, I'm not so fragile, and it's a good thing because everyone will be watching me so that I won't do anything to hurt you."
"Rourou!" Xiao Yao glanced at Tang Xi and said with great seriousness, "We know you won't do that. You don't need to be under anybody's watch!"
Tang Xi smiled and said softly, "Yao, thank you! But I want to do it—let more people know that Xiao Rou is the genuine daughter of the Xiao Family. I'm not weak and I won't allow anyone to bully me. In fact, what I'll do is to tell them that whatever I'll do to Xiao Jinning, she deserves it."
Tang Xi looked ahead of her and said, "I also told them that I was almost killed by Xiao Jinning. It's a debt of blood. I want Xiao Jinning to pay me back with her blood."
