Return To The Past: I Won't Choose Humility This Time! - Chapter 73
Chapter 73 Scheming
“Son, why don’t you say hello to Pingping?”
Seeing that Jiang Ping was a little embarrassed, Qian Yun quickly came out to smooth things over for this child.
Then, she brought Jiang Ping to sit on the sofa next to Zhou Mo.
“Son, Pingping has just returned from studying abroad and is studying fashion design. She’s also good at drawing. I believe the two of you must have a lot of common topics, unlike someone who’s clearly not in the same circle but still wants to try to fit in.”
While praising Jiang Ping, Qian Yun also secretly scolded Yun Lian. Qian Yun’s scheming and shrewdness could be compared with Yun Lian’s.
“Mom, how can you talk like that?! Yun Lian and I also have a lot in common. Besides, Grandpa and Yun Xi are both here. Don’t talk nonsense.”
Zhou Mo quickly helped his goddess out of the situation. He was no longer the same as before. This time, he was afraid that his goddess would be wronged by his mother.
The housekeeper at home saw that everyone was here. She sensibly served a plate of fruits.
“Come, come, come. Pingping, eat some fruits,” Qian Yun said with a smile.
The more she looked at the daughter of the Jiang Group, the happier she became. It was as if she was looking at her future daughter-in-law.
“Son, Pingping likes to eat this melon the most. Hurry up and feed her a piece of it.”
Qian Yun made it clear to her son.
Zhou Mo helplessly put a piece of cut melon into Jiang Ping’s mouth.
“Mm, it tastes really good. Thank you, Brother Mo.”
Jiang Ping ate the melon. She nodded with a smile and praised in a sweet voice.
Yun Lian did not want to be outdone and called out Zhou Mo’s name in a low voice.
“Cough, cough.” Qian Yun pretended that her throat was uncomfortable and coughed twice.
Zhou Mo was a little uncomfortable under his mother’s resentful gaze, but he still wanted to go against his mother. This time, he decided to rebel to the end.

He did not pay attention to his mother. Instead, he used a toothpick to pick up a strawberry and fed Yun Lian. He even said with a grin, “Lianlian, this strawberry is delicious, right? I think it’s even sweeter than the melon.”
Zhou Mo obviously had a hidden meaning behind his words.
Yun Lian also opened her mouth proudly, enjoying the expensive fruit that she usually could not enjoy in the village.
Seeing this, Qian Yun cursed her son’s stupidity internally. ‘He really mistook a fisheye for a pearl!’
“Nowadays, some young ladies really don’t know shame. They take the initiative to ask to be fed. It’s really due to the upbringing of a small family. This kind of young lady isn’t elegant at all and will only be a laughing stock.”
Qian Yun could only vent her anger like that.
Of course, Yun Lian was not willing to be outdone, but on the surface, she still pretended to be greatly wronged. Her eyes were full of tears.
“Brother Mo, I didn’t want to snatch Sister Pingping’s strawberries. I didn’t do it on purpose. If Sister Pingping likes them, then I won’t eat them. I’ll give them all to her…”
Yun Lian’s eyes were sparkling with tears. She looked delicate and pitiful. Making herself look wronged made it seem like Qian Yun and Jiang Ping were bullying a little girl from the countryside.
“Lianlian, don’t cry. Let’s see who dares to say that you can’t eat this plate of strawberries today!”
Zhou Mo immediately comforted Yun Lian.
Jiang Ping suddenly felt speechless. When did she blame Yun Lian for stealing the strawberries that she wanted to eat?!
She thought that Yun Lian was simply a scoundrel who liked to complain first.
The young lady of the Jiang family had lived a life of luxury since she was young. She had never dealt with people like Yun Lian, and she did not know that to deal with such a person, she needed to return the favor.

“Why are you so unreasonable? When did I say that I wanted to snatch the strawberries on the plate from you?”
However, sometimes, it was good to go straight to the point when dealing with such a pretentious girl. When Yun Lian heard Jiang Ping’s words, tears streamed down her face as if she had been wronged. She kept leaning on Zhou Mo’s body. Seeing this, Zhou Mo quickly hugged Yun Lian and comforted her.
“Brother Mo, that’s not what I meant. I just thought that I’m a person who speaks lightly and doesn’t dare to offend anyone. That’s why I was sensitive and thought a little too much. I don’t mean to guess Sister Pingping’s thoughts.”
Yun Lian cried even more sadly as if she had been wronged. She looked mournful.
Old Master Zhou could not bear to watch any longer. He had not wanted to care about his children and grandchildren, but he hit the ground with his cane at this time.
