After Getting Married, I Became The Wife Of The Nation's CEO - Chapter 31
Chapter 31 Deceiving Huo Ci
As soon as Huo Ci said this, Huo Ru knew that she had achieved her goal.
But she still looked surprised and touched by her father’s concern. “Really? Daddy?”
“It’s true, Ru Ru. Daddy doesn’t want to force you like this either, it’s just that we really can’t account for the Yun family.” Huo Ru sighed.
“It’s okay, Dad. I can understand you. I don’t care about the Huo family, but if this is your wish, I will agree.”
Huo Ci looked at the trusting smile on Huo Ru’s face and felt a little guilty.
“Wait a while. I’ll go draw up a contract. Sign it and Daddy will give you some shares and a house.”
Huo Ru’s heart sank. She had completely lost her trust in Huo Ci, but even under such touching circumstances, he didn’t forget to protect his interests. This man didn’t like anything, he only cared about himself.
“Okay, Daddy. I have another small request,” Huo Ru said timidly. “If there’s anything, tell Daddy.”
“Can you remove the people watching me? I feel very uncomfortable.” Although Huo Ru clearly believed most of it, the remaining suspicion stopped him from withdrawing the guards. “These people aren’t here solely to guard. They’re protecting you, you know?”
“Then can we remove those men? I don’t like being watched by them.” Huo Ru did the next best thing. As expected, Huo Ci agreed.
Huo Ru hid the coldness in her eyes, this would at most reduce the difficulty of guarding her along the way. However, it was still a problem for her to escape from the house as the maid had been following her closely. With her understanding of Huo Ci, there must be someone guarding the door. She wouldn’t have time to run out.
Then, there was only one candidate.
“Daddy, can you call Xiao Yun over? I want to talk to her. I’ve been too insensible these past few years and I’ve let her down, I want to apologize to her in person.” Huo Ru was really like a prodigal child who had returned and couldn’t wait to apologize to everyone who she had let down.

Huo Ci was stunned for a moment before he immediately smiled. “Alright, alright. It’s best if there’s no estrangement between you two sisters. How can there be overnight hatred between a family?”
Jiang Li must have warned Huo Yun not to provoke her, but if her father had personally informed her, it would be different. Huo Yun would definitely come, how could she refuse? This was the best opportunity to ridicule Huo Ru.
The eldest daughter of the Huo family, who had always been high and mighty, was now locked up in a small house like a drowning dog. How pitiful was that?
“Sister, what do you want to talk to me about?” Huo Yun had been warned by her mother not to go near the bedroom to avoid getting into trouble, but her father had personally come to tell her that her sister was looking for her. This made her heart race. Her father’s attitude had changed too quickly, and she was worried.
“My good sister, of course it’s something important.” Huo Ru didn’t pretend to be polite anymore. Anyway, Huo Yun wouldn’t believe it. Her words were useless other than disgusting her.
“Just say it. If you don’t, I’ll leave.” Huo Yun knew that something was wrong from Huo Ru’s attitude. She turned around and wanted to leave.
However, Huo Ru threw down a big enough bait. “Don’t you want to know about the woman Zhou Dong has beside you?”
“What?!” Huo Yun’s eyes widened, but she still felt that it was a trap. “Don’t lie to me here. I won’t believe a word you say.”

“What was he doing last Monday night?” Huo Ru was not lying. When she found out about Zhou Dong and Huo Yun, she asked someone to investigate. She did not expect to find such a pleasant surprise.
Huo Yun’s eyes were burning with anger. She waved her hand and gestured for the maid, who had been cowering in the room, to leave.
“You better be telling the truth, or I’ll make you regret it.”
“Of course, my good sister. Why would I lie to you?” Huo Ru took a few steps forward, and Huo Yun stepped back in disgust.
“Do you know why I hate you? You’ve always had this arrogant look on your face. Now you’re the prisoner, stop putting on airs in front of me.” “Oh? I thought you hated me because you were the child of a mistress. Are you happy picking up things that I don’t want? When you slept with Zhou Dong in the middle of the night, would you think of me too?” Huo Ru wanted to get as close to Huo Yun as possible and stall her.
