Madam Xiao couldn’t help but shout.
Hearing the praise from the crowd towards the girl.
Madam Xiao felt unhappy.
It was enough that this girl had taken the place of her daughter.
But now she was even being praised by others.
What would happen when her daughter returned to the Xiao family?
No. This could not be tolerated.
Just as Madam Xiao was feeling flustered and exasperated, Xiao Ying’s face suddenly revealed a trace of fear.
She said carefully, “Mommy, I’m sorry. I was just too happy. I didn’t expect you to get angry. I won’t say any more.”
Xiao Ying’s expression was pitiful, and everyone was looking at Madam Xiao strangely.
Why did Xiao Ying seem to be afraid of her mother?
The upper-classes were the most gossipy people around.
Some of those who didn’t get along with Madam Xiao had already started to wag their chins.
Xiao Lingbo noticed that the situation was going awry and hurriedly said, “Madam, it’s Ying’er’s first time on stage. I know you are nervous, but look, didn’t she perform very well?”
Madam Xiao finally reacted.
Noticing the looks around her, her expression changed and she felt embarrassed.
She revealed a small smile to Xiao Ying. “Ying’er, Mommy just didn’t expect you to perform so well.”
Xiao Ying did not respond. She continued to don a pitiful expression.
She knew what these people were like.
If they were given a lead, all kinds of rumors would be flying around by tomorrow.
Xiao Ying lowered her head and sneered.
Wasn’t Madam Xiao used to using this method to deal with her in her previous life?
She made herself look like a loving mother, while Xiao Ying got slandered as a naughty and rebellious daughter.
“Just enjoy yourself for the rest of your life,” thought Xiao Ying bitterly.
Xiao Lingbo quickly tried to smooth things over.
Trying to maintain an air of civility, everyone laughed it off.
But only they themselves knew what they were thinking.
Madam Xiao had been amongst upper-class society for so many years and naturally knew what rumors would be going around tomorrow.
This knowledge angered her.
But now, she could only swallow this bitter medicine.
Her hatred for Xiao Ying grew even more intense.
Xiao Ying melted into the crowd with a smile on her face.
She was polite and sweet.
Everyone was teasing her.
Suddenly, Xiao Ying sensed someone staring at her from upstairs.
She felt her hair stand on end.
However, by the time she looked up, the line of sight was already gone.
Xiao Ying shook her head and did not take it to heart.
She scanned her surroundings.
Indeed, the Xiao couple had disappeared.
The couple had left their ten-year-old girl alone with a group of strangers.
What doting parents. 𝑖𝐧𝓷𝓇𝙚𝙖d. c𝚘𝐦
In her previous life, they had disappeared at this time.
However, at that time, Xiao Ying was being pointed at by others and had no chance to find them.
Xiao Ying suddenly wanted to see what they were doing.
He actually let go of the chance to defame her.
After all, their mission today had not been completed.
Xiao Ying rolled her eyes and smiled sweetly at everyone.
“Friends, do you guys want to take a look at this hotel? There’s a treasure here!”
Xiao Ying raised her voice and reeled in their curiosity .
“You, Xiao girl, what treasure?”
A young man asked curiously.
Everyone was waiting for Xiao Ying’s answer.
“Uncle, you’re breaking the rules. You have to find it yourself.”
Xiao Ying replied with a straight face. However, she didn’t know that her serious expression made people want to laugh.
“Little girl, I’m your brother.”
As the young man spoke, everyone smiled kindly.
After attending many boring banquets, Xiao Ying’s declaration incited their curiosity, so they all agreed to look.
They cooperated and followed Xiao Ying to see what she was up to.
She led the group of people around the hotel.
Xiao Ying was looking for her parents, but she could not find them.
She sensed herself being watched again.
She looked back warily, but the feeling disappeared again.
Just as she was feeling puzzled, she heard someone behind her urging her.
“Little girl, where is the treasure?”
“Yeah. Don’t tell me you forgot where it is.”
Everyone’s tones were growing irritated.
They had only been willing to cooperate because they thought this girl was interesting.
Now that they were tired of walking, if Xiao Ying did not reveal the answer, their patience would run out.
