Chapter 1 - Don’t Count Your Chickens Before They Hatch!

In the ward, even though Qin Yu was lying still, pretending to be weak, she could still feel the vicious gaze of her foster mom, Qu Li.

This wicked woman had been looking forward to Qin Yu's death for a long time.

If it hadn't been for Qin Yu's quick wit and luck, she would have already been crushed to death by the wheels of the car.

She had only been able to see the eyes of the driver as she lay on the road, but she knew without a doubt that it was Qu Li.

Qin Yu couldn't do anything but sigh in her heart. She had to find a way to leave the Shi family.

As the saying goes, once a thief, always a thief. Everytime Qin Yu was abused by her villainous foster mom, she had always hoped that it would be the last time.

However, Qu Li never failed to look for more ways to torture and conspire against her. Everything she did would be reprimanded, and her actions were limited under Qu Li's strict surveillance...

Suddenly, the door flung open with a bang.

"Mom, is she dead?" a gentle but cold voice could be heard asking in exasperation.

It was her sister, Shi Xiao, who was not related to her by blood.

Qu Li whispered unhappily, "Xiaoxiao, what's wrong? Why did you lose your composure?"

Shi Xiao cooled herself and adjusted her voice to sound soft and sweet. "Mom, this little b*tch can't die!"

Qu Li lowered her voice before saying mechanically, "If she doesn't die, we won't be able to obtain the inheritance left by her dead parents, and we won't have the money to save your father's company! Do you want to be forced by your father to marry the blind eldest grandson of the Ning family? This is for the sake of your future!"

Shi Xiao quickly stepped forward and clung onto Qu Li's arm lovingly. 

"Mom, I knew you loved me the most! Please don't be angry.

"Listen. I heard that the Ning family gave us 100 million yuan as dowry, and they also offered to collaborate with dad in three company projects. It's enough for us to bounce back!" 

Qu Li frowned at Shi Xiao's words. "That deal was in exchange for your future. I would rather leave the company to rot than to send you down a path which you will regret for the rest of your life!"

Shi Xiao felt touched by her mother's affection. In the end, it was her mother who loved her the most, not her father!

She pulled Qu Li toward the sofa in front of the hospital room and sat down. 

"Mother, listen to me. I've thought of a better way.

"I have a plan. I'm sure we will be able to get the Ning family's dowry as well as this slut's property. I won't even need to marry that crippled man! Hmph!" 

Qu Li studied her daughter carefully, her eyes full of doubt.

"Xiaoxiao, what's your idea? Tell me. Is there really a way we can get out of this?"

Shi Xiao looked up at her mother and nodded quickly.

"Mother, we can send this little b*tch to the Ning family instead! All they asked for was our family's young miss, they didn't specify who exactly, right? 

"There just happens to be two of us in the family. We've gone out of our way to raise Qin Yu for so many years, she should repay us. We should make her contribute to our Shi family!"

Qu Li was shocked and quickly shook her head in disagreement. "That's nonsense! How could we do that? Putting aside the matter of your father's agreement, it hadn't been easy for him to build a relationship with the Ning family. We can't afford to make fools out of them, otherwise, who knows what they will do to your father's firm?"

However, Shi Xiao was confident and did not sway following her mother's concern. 

"Mom, I've already done my research. The Ning family just wants a daughter-in-law who's soft-tempered and obedient to take care of their elder grandson since he's blind. 

"They only chose our family because of our weakened power due to Dad's failing business, so we could be easily manipulated.

"We'll publicize their engagement, so that the Ning family will not be able to go back on their word. 

"When Qin Yu gets married, she'll be able to have access to her family's inheritance, and we can coax that b*tch to hand over the dowry to you for safekeeping. Isn't this method better compared to yours that involves bloodshed?"

Shi Xiao pointed at Qin Yu, who was lying motionless on the bed.

Qu Li could not help but be moved by her daughter's attentiveness.

Shi Xiao saw her reaction and continued to convince her, "Mother, the most crucial thing right now is for you to get father to agree to Qin Yu and Ning Chen's marriage. Father always protects and treats her better than me, his own actual biological daughter."

When those words left her mouth, her realization of that reality slowly started to set in, and Qu Li genuinely puckered her lips in sadness.

With this key issue in mind, she patted her daughter's hand and reassured her.

"Don't worry. I'll do it. If he dares to object, I'll threaten him with our lives. I don't believe that he'll give up the future of the Shi family for a fool."

Shi Xiao smiled sweetly. "Mother always has the best ideas, unlike father!"

Flattery would get you everywhere. 

Qu Li reached out her hand and tucked a lock of her daughter's hair behind her ear affectionately. 

"Xiaoxiao, you have to get the eldest young master of the official family to fall in love with you. In order for our family business to grow, you must have a strong political background.

"Even a prestigious family like the Ning family will have to humble themselves before the official family to be on good terms with them. If you're able to become their young lady, your father would never dare to disobey you in the future. 

"Do you understand?"

After digesting her mother's advice, Shi Xiao replied briskly, "Don't worry Mom, I got it!"

Qu Li stood up from the couch and glared at the patient lying weakly on the bed. 

"Let's look for a doctor to do their best to treat her. We have to make this slut marry into the Ning family, she can't die on us!"

The door of the ward was shut, and the person on the bed slowly opened her eyes.

Her pair of black eyes twinkled like stars under the reflection of the light; there wasn't the slightest bit of foolishness in them. A faint smile grew on her face, her lips glistening with a natural gloss. 

Don't count your chickens before they hatch!
