â€œYouâ€™re saying that youâ€™re Zhenxiuâ€™s cousin? The same Zhenxiu
that lives under our roof?â€ Yang Chen asked doubtfully.
Park Jonghyun smiled bitterly. â€œYeah, Iâ€™m very certain. Although I
have to admit that I had no way of confirming until two days ago when I
received a report. This definitely isnâ€™t a mistake, especially after we
tried so hard to search for years. Xu Zhenxiu is indeed my pitiful lost
Yang Chen raised his head and had a look at Zhenxiuâ€™s room.
Although the curtains were closed, Yang Chen knew that Zhenxiu was
peeping outside as an incredibly small gap was revealed. She was looking
at him talking to Park Jonghyun.
Yang Chen sighed and said, â€œI feel that this needs to be discussed in
its entirety. Letâ€™s get inside.â€
Park Jonghyun quickly agreed and looked extremely grateful when he
followed Yang Chen inside the house.
The huge bunch of bodyguards didnâ€™t move the slightest at their
positions which shocked Yang Chen a little. It sure seemed like
Zhenxiuâ€™s mother had an unusual family background. Employing bodyguards
wasnâ€™t exactly as cheap as hiring maids.
Both Wang Ma and Guo Xuehua were inside the house. They seemed to have
felt relieved upon seeing Yang Chen. They served some tea before going
into the kitchen. Evidently, they were letting Yang Chen take care of
Park Jonghyun only brought the assistant-like bodyguard inside. He sat on
the sofa in the living hall before he started explaining the general
situation from the beginning to end.
According to Park Jonghyun, Zhenxiuâ€™s mother, named Park Jiyi, was the
eldest daughter of Park Jonghyunâ€™s grandfather. Back then, she got
married with a Chinese man, and had lost contact with her family after
running away from home.
Although he was aware that Park Jiyi had a daughter all this time, the
old man had never been bothered about her due to anger until two years
ago when his body conditions started worsening. He had hoped to meet this
granddaughter of his given birth by his favorite daughter.
As a result, being the only grandson, Park Jonghyun started the search
for his cousin sister. Using the enormous resources of the clan, he had
spent more than two years before finally locating Zhenxiu.
â€œChina is such a huge country but your family still managed to track
Zhenxiu. It sure looks like you have quite the influence in society,â€
Yang Chen said.
Park Jonghyun seemed to have gotten a little proud. Smiling, he said,
â€œYeah. I wonder if Mr Yang has heard of Starmoon Group before. Itâ€™s a
business empire built by our Park clan.â€
â€œStarmoon Group? After you its director Park Jonghyun?â€
The voice of a lady suddenly appeared at the entrance. Yang Chen and Park
Jonghyun both turned to look there, only to find Lin Ruoxi who had just
arrived at home.
After Lin Ruoxi finished speaking, she carried her handbag and sat beside
Yang Chen on the sofa, ignoring Park Jonghyunâ€™s gaze. She continued,
â€œThen Zhenxiuâ€™s grandfather must be the founder of Starmoon
Groupâ€”President Park Juan.â€
Yang Chen wasnâ€™t surprised that Lin Ruoxi came home. Since Wang Ma
informed him, it was only natural if she did so to Lin Ruoxi as well.
However, Park Jonghyun appeared to be shocked by Lin Ruoxiâ€™s
appearance. He only recovered awareness after a while. Smiling awkwardly,
he said, â€œYeah, my grandfather is indeed Park Juan. You must be Boss
Lin from Yu Lei International. Your reputation precedes you. Itâ€™s my
honor to meet you.â€
Yang Chen, on the other hand, was completely unaware of Starmoon Group.
He turned to Lin Ruoxi and asked out of curiosity, â€œWife, is the
â€کStarmoonâ€™ something or somebody very famous?â€
Lin Ruoxi frowned slightly. She wasnâ€™t used to being called â€کWifeâ€™
in front of outsiders, but she fortunately didnâ€™t know how to feel shy.
Helplessly, she explained, â€œStarmoon Group is one of the largest
chaebols in Korea. President Park is a legendary businessman from Korea.
Starmoon has significant market shares in both the automotive and
electronics industries. At the same time, they do real estate, tourism,
and various retail chains. Mr Park Juan has been shortlisted as one of
the top ten wealthiest people in Asia for over a decade. Itâ€™s estimated
that Starmoon Group is worth more than 100 billion US Dollars. Itâ€™s
seriously an impressive family business.â€
Yang Chen whistled when he realized that Zhenxiuâ€™s grandfather was a
really rich man. Although he didnâ€™t care about money very much, he more
or less had a grasp on just how much 100 billion worth of assets was.
At least, although Lin Ruoxi had so much money that it was difficult for
anyone to finish spending in a few lifetimes, she was still far away from
â€œBoss Lin is indeed a business star. Although Starmoon has yielded good
results, since my grandfather has always maintained a low profile, itâ€™s
not very famous internationally. I didnâ€™t think Boss Lin would be this
familiar with the company. Iâ€™m really impressed,â€ Park Jonghyun
â€œYouâ€™re really amazing as well. You managed to become Starmoon
Groupâ€™s director in your early twenties. It proves that youâ€™re a
qualified inheritor,â€ Lin Ruoxi said.
â€œNo, no, no,â€ Park Jonghyun said while shaking his hands hurriedly.
â€œIâ€™m just helping Grandpa temporarily. I donâ€™t plan to inherit
Starmoon Group. The reason Iâ€™m so anxious about looking for Sister
Zhenxiu is because it is our familyâ€™s wish that she returns to Korea
and inherit the group from Grandpa.â€
This time, Lin Ruoxi who had a calm personality was a little surprised.
Frowning, she said, â€œZhenxiu is barely eighteen this year. Do you guys
think she can successfully take over hundreds of billions of assets from
Starmoon in Korea?â€
â€œI totally understand Boss Linâ€™s concern, but all of us in the clan
will be of her assistance. Letting Auntâ€™s daughter inherit Starmoon
Group is Grandpaâ€™s long-cherished wish which we intend to see
through,â€ Park Jonghyun said before standing up and sincerely bowing
down. â€œI hope you two could help persuade Zhenxiu to return to Korea
with me. Weâ€™ll definitely make up for the suffering she has been
Yang Chen opened his mouth a little in shock when he saw Park
Jonghyunâ€™s eyes turn slightly red. He didnâ€™t know what to say.
Lin Ruoxi got quiet as well. Although she felt that everything was overly
abrupt, it appeared to be true at the same time.
When the three were in silence, a sound could be heard from the stairs.
The three turned their heads to have a look, only to find Zhenxiu with
swollen eyes as a result of crying.
â€œCousin, Iâ€™m really your relative. Please come back to Korea with
me,â€ Park Jonghyun said after walking forward to her, holding high
Zhenxiuâ€™s hair was a little messy. Years of hardship had exhausted the
naivety on her face. Her elegant face revealed some mature resolution.
The tears on her face have washed off whatever immaturity that had been
â€œI wonâ€™t go with you. Donâ€™t waste your time. If it wasnâ€™t for you
evil people, my mother wouldnâ€™t have been forced to escape to China. If
it wasnâ€™t for your lack of compassion, my fatherâ€™s business
wouldnâ€™t have gone bankrupt, and he wouldnâ€™t have to abandon usâ€¦
while my mother wouldnâ€™t have died because she had lacked the funding
for treatmentâ€¦ and Iâ€¦ I wouldnâ€™t have had to go through life the
way I haveâ€¦â€ Zhenxiu spoke as she whimpered. â€œIf your conscience
still exists, please go back and never return to disturb my life again.
Iâ€™m living a great life here. Brother Yang and Sister Ruoxi are my
relatives, you guysâ€¦ are unrelated to me.â€
Park Jonghyun wanted to speak again, but was stopped by Lin Ruoxi.
â€œYou donâ€™t need to say anything,â€ Lin Ruoxi said after walking
forward. Hugging Zhenxiu, she said coldly, â€œYou guys will never know
what kind of a life Zhenxiu has lived in the orphanage. Iâ€™ll be sure to
treat her with care. Please leave, sheâ€™s not willing to see you guys.â€
â€œBoss Lin, butâ€¦â€ Park Jonghyun wanted to speak while anxiety filled
Lin Ruoxi ignored him and said to Yang Chen, â€œYang Chen, are you a
piece of wood?â€
Yang Chen scratched his head. Her order was obvious. She wanted him to
send Park Jonghyun off.
â€œErmâ€¦ Brother Park, thereâ€™s nothing else I can do. Itâ€™s better if
you can leave now. This matter isnâ€™t as simple as you think. She
canâ€™t just leave with you just because you want her to, can she? I
believe you can tell that my wife treats Zhenxiu a lot better than she
does to me. If I were you, Iâ€™d heed her suggestion,â€ Yang Chen
murmured as he sent Park Jonghyun outside.
Park Jonghyun was nervous, but he failed to speak a word, especially when
he was faced with Lin Ruoxiâ€™s freezing-cold gaze.
After Yang Chen came outside with him and closed the door, Park Jonghyun
let out a long and painful sigh. â€œMr Yang, Grandpa is still waiting for
me to send Cousin back to Korea. How am I supposed to report back this
â€œReport it like it is. President canâ€™t just blame you for it, can he?
He doesnâ€™t expect you to tie the kid Zhenxiu up and send her back after
all,â€ Yang Chen said and giggled.
Park Jonghyun shook his head. The furrowed brows on his face had
displayed his worry.
â€œI too knew that this wouldnâ€™t go so well. Zhenxiu has gone through
too much after all. Butâ€¦ we certainly hope to bring her back,â€ Park
Jonghyun said before raising his head. Solemnly, he continued, â€œMr
Yang, although Iâ€™ve failed to convince her today, I will return one
day. I hope that Mr and Mrs Yang can help me persuade her. Starmoon is
her real home after all.â€
Yang Chen promised, â€œAlright, alright. No problem. Iâ€™ll definitely
help you.â€ Damn, I canâ€™t even deal with my own wife. Where do I find
time to persuade your cousin? he thought.
Park Jonghyun looked extremely thankful. He then left the courtyard with
his assistant after bidding farewell.
Yang Chen almost felt relieved, but he suddenly noticed a purple Maserati
speeding towards his house. Screech! It braked violently and stopped
outside, right beside the three cars parked there.
Yang Chen was wondering who the heck that was. Unexpectedly, it was one
of his â€کclose friendsâ€™â€”the Korean celebrity Yoo Yeonhee.
Yoo Yeonhee wore a pair of huge sunglasses which covered most of her
fair-skinned face while her hair was let loose. She had no makeup on,
probably because she was in a rush.
â€œJonghyun! Itâ€™s really you!â€
Yoo Yeonhee seemed to have failed to notice Yang Chenâ€™s existence. When
Park Jonghyun almost entered the car, she cried out joyfully before
removing her sunglasses and running over, just like an overjoyed little
On the other hand, Park Jonghyun wasnâ€™t very pleased to have heard Yoo
Yeonheeâ€™s voice. The distress on his face soon turned to annoyance. He
said, â€œHow many times have I told you to not look for me?â€
Park Jonghyunâ€™s cold tone was the complete opposite of how he had
spoken to Yang Chen and Lin Ruoxi earlier.
Yoo Yeonhee appeared to have been stunned as if struck by lightning. As
soon as she arrived in front of Park Jonghyun, she stood still stiffly
while her beautiful large eyes soon turned watery, displaying a pitiful
lookâ€¦ The show in front made Yang Chen who was going to return to the
house stop moving. His interest was aroused. It was obvious that Park
Jonghyun had something to do with Yoo Yeonhee. When Yang Chen thought
about it, it actually made sense for a man from a wealthy clan to get
together with a superstar. In ancient times, the guy would be the prince
while the lady would be the showgirl. The show they were putting up was
no different from the movie clichأ© in upper-class families!
