In the silent stairwell, Huo Ru sat against the wall on the stairs. She looked melancholic, and tears glistened in her eyes, but she stubbornly refused to let them flow.
They had been together for so many years. Although they did not love each other deeply, they had some feelings for each other.
What she thought of as affection was worthless to others. It was even a burden.
The ringtone of her phone was sharp and piercing. It was once her favorite song, but today it sounded like noise.
With trembling hands, she took out the phone from her bag and answered it.
“Dad, what’s the matter?”
Huo Ci’s angry voice was a little weightless under the distortion of the receiver. He said coldly, “You still have the cheek to ask me what happened?! Look at what you’ve done! Aren’t you slapping our family’s face by calling off the marriage at this time?”
“Dad, you don’t know what Zhou Dong and Huo Yun did?” Huo Ru couldn’t help but defend herself.
“There’s no need to explain. How can you think of suspecting that your sister and brother-in-law are having an affair? I think you’re crazy! Fortunately, not only is Xiaoyun willing to forgive you, she’s also willing to marry Zhou Dong in your place. Otherwise, where would I put my face today?”
“Dad!” Huo Ru couldn’t help but raise her voice.
“I’m the one calling you Dad! Since you don’t want to marry Zhou Dong, you don’t have to take your shares. What a disgrace. I’ve already arranged your marriage with the third son of the Yun family. Get married as soon as possible and don’t let our family become a joke.”
“Who are you talking about?” Huo Ru’s head was buzzing. She did not expect her father to arrange another marriage for her so quickly.
“Who else could it be? Of course, there’s only one Yun family. It just so happens that they came to propose marriage for their third son. Their family helped me before, and I agreed on one condition. This time, we’re even. I was going to say that I’ve wronged Yunyun and married her. It just so happens that your reputation is ruined this time, so it’s decided. Don’t cause me trouble anymore, be more sensible like Yunyun.” After saying that, Huo Ci hung up the phone, not giving Huo Ru any room to refute or talk back.
Of course, Huo Ru knew who the Yun family he was talking about was, it was the legendary huge family hidden in the dark. It was said that they were extremely rich and controlled the lifeline of this city and even the country.

Although it sounded like a glorious family, it was also complicated internally. There were constant factions fighting, big and small. The third son of the Yun family she was going to marry was even more ruthless, he was a big dictator who was going to be hung on a street lamp. That was fine, but he was disabled. She did not know when he would be gone.
No one knew what he looked like, and no one knew his name. Everyone usually called him Third Master Yun.
Huo Ru put down the phone indifferently. She finally understood why Zhou Dong, who could have broken up with her directly, had set up such a trap with Huo Yun. It was because this was the only way to ensure that he would be engaged to Huo Yun and let him throw this issue to her.
Her father’s heart had always been biased and could not be counted on, and her stepmother was even more so. She was probably whispering to her father now.
The more they wanted her to marry over, the more she would not let these people have their way.
The Yun family was powerful. If she refused directly, she would undoubtedly be courting death. Unless… she could find herself a marriage partner today.
No matter how powerful they were, they could not force her to get a divorce. Besides, the Yun family might not like a divorced woman.
However, who would be willing to marry a woman they had just met?
“I told you, I want to divorce him. I always say that he can’t do it. How long has he been going back and forth to the hospital?! He just can’t do it in that aspect. I can’t be a widow, right?!”
The angry voice of a woman sounded from the stairwell below. She was on the phone.

“Endure? What’s there to endure? You might as well kill me if you’re with him forever. If you have a problem, don’t get married and harm girls! What did I do wrong? I’m going to become a divorced woman who’s still a virgin?”
Huo Ru raised her eyebrows. Someone who was in a hurry to get married in the hospital was naturally a man who wanted to prove himself.
A crazy idea formed in her mind. Time was tight, and there was no time to come up with any more plans. She had to get her marriage certificate before the Civil Affairs Bureau closed today.
She stood up, picked up the mirror, and studied her face. It was okay, not too bad.
They walked to the door of the men’s department examination room, there was a row of people sitting outside. Huo Ru’s gaze swept between them. Suddenly, she locked onto someone.
