1209 Father

 From what Li Xueying had done, it could be seen that Li Xueying was a person who knew how to repay kindness and valued relationships. Such a person placed a lot of importance on the relationships between people. However, a person who valued loyalty and relationships would often be the most hurt if they encountered an ungrateful person.

Her words might be nothing to a tough man.

However, to Li Xueying, it was equivalent to shattering all her beautiful memories. All her final delusions of hope was gone.

It wasn't only Li Xueying. Fangzheng also attempted to put him in her shoes. If Wang Yougui and company were to end up like this one day, how sad would he be? Thinking of that outcome, Fangzheng looked at Li Xueying with pity.

"Alright, stop thinking about it. Your parents are here," said Fangzheng.

Li Xueying nodded and sighed before following Fangzheng into the house.

Li Xueying's parents had naturally heard her loud quarrel with the villagers outside. The two of them opened the door and walked out, their elderly faces immediately beaming when they saw her.

Li Xueying went forward and smiled. "Dad, Mom."

"Xueying, you are back." Li Xueying's mother held Li Xueying's hand with a benevolent look.

Li Xueying's father, Li Haisheng, did not seem to be eloquent. He smiled in a silly manner and said, "I'll go buy two pounds of meat. Heh heh..."

With that said, Li Haisheng left.

"I'll help."

Then, Fangzheng left with Li Haisheng.

Li Haisheng was indeed a man of few words. He was at a loss for words when facing Fangzheng. After holding it in for a long while, he said, "What do you like to eat?"

Fangzheng smiled. "I eat anything. Mr. Li, don't bother about me."

Li Haisheng nodded and fell silent.

When they arrived at the grocery store, before Li Haisheng could enter, he heard someone shouting inside. "That bitch, Li Xueying, is outrageous! She actually got my father to pay her back! She's filthy rich, so why must my father pay her back? She's so heartless."

"That's right. My mom has also said that she's too crazy! Isn't she just an actress who sells her ass? Why is she putting on an act in front of us? Once she leaves the village, she's nothing but a glorified prostitute!"

Upon hearing this, Li Haisheng's face instantly turned ashen. He clenched his fists, his teeth cracking.

Fangzheng could sense the anger of this honest man beside him...

"That's right. Just that bit of money has made her lose her mind. I think we should write letters to some news agency or something and say something about Li Xueying," someone suggested.

When Li Haisheng heard this, there was a trace of worry and fear on his face. He took a deep breath, quelled his anger, pushed open the door, and entered.

Upon seeing Li Haisheng come, the people who were discussing how to deal with Li Xueying immediately fell silent. After all, they knew that it was not good to speak behind someone's back. Even more so when it was in front of them.

Fangzheng scanned the room and immediately saw the balding man, Jiang Zaisheng. There was also a man who resembled Grandpa Chen. He was probably his son.

Li Haisheng bought two pounds of pork, but he was in no hurry to leave. He sat there motionless.

With Li Haisheng sitting there, it was naturally difficult for everyone to discuss Li Xueying's fault. All they could do was change the topic.

"Haisheng, I heard your Xueying is back. How many days is she planning on staying?" someone asked.

Li Haisheng said, "I don't know. Probably a few days."

"Haisheng, I heard that your family is moving. Do you know about this?" someone asked.

Li Haisheng shook his head and said, "I'm not going to move. I have the final say, not anyone else. I've never thought of moving."

The other party was stunned for a moment before smiling. "That's what your daughter said."

Li Haisheng frowned and said, "I'm not moving!"

Everyone heaved a sigh of relief when they heard that. Clearly, no one wished for Li Haisheng's family to move out. If they moved, the village would lose the golden goose. It would be a huge loss.

Since Li Haisheng was not leaving, Grandpa Chen's son came over and said, "Haisheng, your daughter is very capable. She has only just returned and she's already teaching my father a lesson. Are you not going to do something about this?"

Li Haisheng shot a glance at him and said, "Mm."

Grandpa Chen's son said, "It's good that you are going to do something. How can one speak to their elders like that? She just kept talking about money. It's too hurtful. Sigh, my dad was so angry that he fell sick when he went back. We still have to spend money on his health later. Haisheng, you'll be paying for this, right?"

Li Haisheng continued, "Mm."

"Haisheng, I'm taking that as a promise. I'll go to your place later to get the money," Grandpa Chen's son said.

When the others saw this, they went forward to complain to Li Haisheng and tried to get some money from him in different ways.

Fangzheng remained silent as he sat by the side. He used A Golden Millet Dream to minimize his presence. Everyone subconsciously ignored his existence.

Li Haisheng sat there for a long time. They dispersed when everyone's mouth was dry from all the speaking with nothing left to say.

Only then did Li Haisheng get up and head back.

Along the way, Li Haisheng said to Fangzheng, "Don't tell Xueying. It's tiring enough for her outside. She shouldn't need to vex herself over things when she's back."

Fangzheng frowned. "Mr. Li, these people borrowed a total of six thousand yuan from you. If you don't tell Ms. Li, this money..."

Li Haisheng shook his head and said, "There's no need to tell her. I'll think of a way."

"Mr. Li, there's actually no need for you to lend them the money."

Li Haisheng didn't say a word.

Fangzheng said, "Are you using money to shut their mouths? You chose not to leave because you wanted to watch them and not let them speak ill of Ms. Li?"

Li Haisheng sighed and said, "Don't make wild guesses. Let's go."

Fangzheng let out a long sigh when he saw Li Haisheng's hunched back. Although he did not have much contact with him, Fangzheng could sense that the man was carrying a huge mountain on his back. Furthermore, the mountain was growing heavier and heavier. And what motivated him to continue forward was...

"Dad, why did you take so long to buy the meat? Mom has been waiting anxiously. She told me to look for you." Li Xueying happened to walk out of the house. When she saw Li Haisheng, she said with a tone that sounded accusatory, but was more filled with worry.

Upon seeing Li Xueying, a happy smile immediately appeared on Li Haisheng's face as his body subconsciously straightened. It was as though all the pressure on him vanished once he saw his precious daughter...

Li Xueying's house wasn't luxurious. In Li Xueying's words, the house remained identical to the time she left it. She had thought of renovating the house or rebuilding it into a villa, but her parents forbade it. For this, both parties had fought over it several times, but Li Xueying eventually compromised.

The food was very sumptuous. There were free-range chicken, free-range duck, and some farm vegetables.

Before the dishes were served, Li Haisheng had already invited Fangzheng to sit down.
