After struggling to pay attention and stay awake in her classes, Yu Rou managed to endure until lunchtime.
"Sister Rou, did something happen to you? I noticed that you were dozing off during class. This is unprecedented…" Xia Jingyi asked her after they sat down for lunch.
"It's a long story…" Yu Rou sighed.
"If you don't want to say it…"
"No, I'll tell you, since you're somewhat related now." Yu Rou said, and she proceeded to explain to them what had happened yesterday and how her mother forbade her from seeing Yuan.
"What?!" Xia Jingyi almost choked on her drink after listening to Yu Rou, and she slammed the desk in anger.
"How can she do that to you and your brother— her own children?! I have never seen such despicable people before! Ah… I'm sorry for yelling at your parents, Sister Rou, but I just can't remain calm after hearing what they did…" Xia Jingyi said.
"Don't worry about it, Xia Jingyi. I also feel that what my parents did is unforgivable! However, there's nothing I can do, and it's not like I could just leave the family. If I was even half as talented as Brother Tian, perhaps I would have some saying in the family, but alas, that's not the case." Yu Rou sighed.
While it's true that Yuan could support both of them if he begins real-world trading, there are things in this world that cannot be solved even with money. Furthermore, she doesn't intend on letting Yuan take care of her forever. If anything, it should be the other way around— she should be taking care of him! However, she can't do that if she leaves the family, and the biggest problem is that she's still a minor, whilst Yuan is considered an adult.
"What are you going to do now, Sister Rou?" Xia Jingyi asked her a moment later.
"I honestly don't know, but we can only continue with our plans and see how it goes. If things don't work out, we will think of something else." Yu Rou said.
"If you need anything, just let me know, Sister Rou! I'll do my best to support you and your brother!" Xia Jingyi said.
"Thank you, Jingyi." Yu Rou said to her with a sweet smile.
"What should I do, Young Lady? If the Masters find out that I'm helping the Young Master, there's a good chance they'll also force me to stop." Meixiu suddenly said.
"You'll continue taking care of Brother Tian since there's nobody else we can trust right now. I'll try my best to keep your business a secret. If my parents find out… Once again, we'll think of something." Yu Rou said to her.
"I understand, Young Lady." Meixiu nodded.
Meanwhile, Yuan continued to cultivate in his room, reaching 3rd level Spirit Warrior an hour before Meixiu returned.
"Young Master… I mean, Yuan, I have something news regarding the Young Lady." Meixiu said in a solemn voice.
"Hm? Did something happen to Yu Rou?" Yuan asked in a worried voice.
After taking a deep breath, Meixiu explained to him the situation, how he's officially disowned and kicked out of the Yu Family and how they forbade Yu Rou from seeing him anymore.
"Yu Rou can't see me anymore…?" Yuan mumbled in a dazed voice.
After taking longer than necessary to understand the meaning behind such words, mostly because he was shocked, Yuan gritted his teeth in anger.
"I don't care if they take away all of my possessions and money. I don't even care if they kick me out of the family. However, to think they'd stoop as low as this…! They're clearly using Yu Rou to purposefully piss me off!"
Yuan subconsciously tightened his hands to make a fist at this moment despite not feeling them, and his fingers trembled a bit, moving more than usual.
Due to her attentiveness, Meixiu did not miss this slight movement and nearly cried out loud of shock after seeing it.
'I… I wasn't imagining things just now, right? Yuan… his fingers… it moved!' Meixiu cried inwardly, unsure how much of what she just witnessed was real or just her imagination.
However, after rubbing her eyes and looking again, she couldn't see Yuan's fingers moving anymore.
'Perhaps it really was just my imagination?' she wondered.
"I swear... if they made Yu Rou cry just to get back at me!" Yuan said, experiencing an indescribable feeling of rage in his heart that felt similar to heartburn.
Dub! Dub! Dub!
Yuan could feel his heart racing, unaware of the flame in his heart that was expanding larger and fiercer.
Feeling a subtle but suffocating atmosphere suddenly appear in the room, Meixiu spoke in a nervous voice, "I… I am going to prepare dinner now."
And she quickly escaped the room, immediately feeling better after leaving Yuan's room.
'What was the feeling just now?' Meixiu wondered to herself as she wiped the cold sweats off her forehead.
Meanwhile, Yuan tried his best to calm down, but alas, it was much more difficult than he'd expected.
'I thought only the cultivation world would have such unreasonable people, but it appears that such people exist in this world as well, and they even used to be my own parents!' Yuan sighed inwardly after realizing this fact.
Unfortunately, unlike Cultivation Online where he has many powerful supporters, he could only rely on Yu Rou and a few other people in this world. Furthermore, his movements are extremely limited, making it impossible for him to do anything about this situation.
'If only I could move! If only I am not so useless in this world!' Yuan gritted his teeth in frustration.
'The only thing I can do right now is to improve my cultivation!'
With this thought in mind, Yuan began cultivating again despite the unpleasant feeling in his heart that is desperation mixed with passion.
A few moments later, a gentle breeze appeared in the room as Yuan's cultivation speed suddenly increased even more, but alas, he was too focused to notice this change.
