Tang Yajing looked indifferently at her uncle sitting diagonally opposite her. This smart person has probably said goodbye to the position of the head of the family for the rest of his life. He has no money and no power. How could he fight with Old Master? She blew at her nails leisurely and suddenly saw the old man turn his gaze in her direction. She instinctively nudged the person beside her.
Her second sister was in the midst of playing mahjong when she was suddenly pulled back to reality for some reason. Just as she was about to voice her displeasure, she met the old master’s sinister gaze. Before she could react, she had goosebumps. Oh my! Have I been discovered?
She smiled stiffly and pinched Tang Rongrong with her right hand. Tang Rongrong revealed the same expression as her just now. Before she could speak, she was shocked by the glare from the old master.
She smiled awkwardly and scratched the back of her head, feeling conflicted. Did Old Master see us slacking off? He won’t punish us later, right? She didn’t want to be grounded like her third sister. Yesterday, she had already discussed with her mahjong friends that she would go over to play mahjong after the meeting ended. If she was stopped, wouldn’t her source of happiness be gone?
Not far away, the old master’s anger grew. Why did his family have three useless daughters? Each one of them was more useless than the other! Fortunately, he still had two caring daughters. As expected, handing the Tang family over to No. 5 was the right choice. After that, he would let the eldest daughter be in charge of assisting him.
Thinking of this, he said with an ugly expression, "Then this matter has been decided. However, because No. 3 has not made any contributions to the family this year, this one yuan will not be distributed to her. No. 3, do you have any objections? If you do, you can say it while the elders are here. Otherwise, we will move on to the next segment."
Anyone with a discerning eye could tell that his attitude was perfunctory. After all, they were all well aware of this. Not only did No. 3 not contribute anything, but she also let the family down. It was obvious that the old master did not want to dirty his hands with even one yuan! In other words… No. 3 had become the only person in the family who did not receive any reward!
As a member of the main family, she was in such a miserable state.
Just as they were waiting for her to say something, the other party did not react for a long time. Tang Yajing knew right away that her third sister was distracted. A trace of disdain flashed across her eyes. Isn’t this to confirm to the others that the rumors outside are true? She is extremely stupid! She is embarrassing us!
"Third Sister, Old Master is asking you a question."

Tang Wenyi seemed to have woken up from a dream. She looked in the direction of the voice and said in confusion, "Huh?"
This was great. Everyone knew that she was not paying attention just now!
They all had their own thoughts about her and started talking in an affected manner.
"I don’t know if Third Miss has a big heart or if she has courage. She’s actually so absent-minded on such a serious occasion. Is it because she hasn’t been back for long that you still miss your life in Shanghai? This is the first time I’ve seen someone who likes to live a hard life!"
"What you said makes sense. I guess she might even like that freeloader! I heard that she had deep feelings for that man. Back then, she even ignored everyone’s objections and married off to Shanghai! In my opinion, such a disobedient daughter should just be left to fend for herself in Shanghai. Old Master is still too soft-hearted!"
"Why are the rumors I heard different from yours? My friend told me that Third Miss has been interacting with the next head of the Yang family quite frequently since she returned. It’s said that they’re very close. If that’s true, then I’m curious. What exactly does this young Master Yang like about Third Miss? She doesn’t have any brains. Could it be her appearance?"
"Appearance? One cannot count on it. Isn’t he afraid that Third Miss will ruin the Yang family? Hahahaha!"
Tang Wanxi and Tang Rongrong were on par with each other when it came to being distracted. They even secretly played mahjong under the table.
Fortunately, they had advance warning from the old master. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have been able to escape this time. However, Tang Wenyi had only herself to blame for being completely immersed in her own world. She didn’t take the time to pay attention to what was going on at all. In addition, no one was willing to alert her, so she became everyone’s target of derision again.
Tang Yajing lowered her eyes to hide the coldness and disdain in her heart. She thought to herself, How can such a person compete with me? Isn’t that a dream?
At the side, her cousin, Lin Jinxu, covered the corners of her mouth with her fan and said gloatingly, "It seems that everyone knows your nature. Old Master is clearly so capable, but why didn’t you learn anything? We don’t expect you to be very powerful, but you have to be serious, right? With so many elders present, you dare to think of something else?"
"Could it be that you think you’ve contributed more than everyone here this year? I won’t say anything, but Fifth Cousin didn’t say anything, so how can you think so? The Tang family has always been a place where the strong prey on the weak. Be it the elders or the juniors who have just come into contact with family matters, they have contributed more than you. How can you be so shameless?"
"It’s fine if you’re not keen to learn, but you’re so distracted. You’re really hopeless!"
These spiteful words made Tang Wenyi’s eyes turn red. They’re just slightly better than me. Is there a need to put on such a high and mighty attitude? As long as I want to do something, won’t it be easy for me to succeed? There have only been some accidents previously, that’s all!
She could not say these words even if she wanted to, because the others were staring at her with sharp gazes, as if they would attack her in the next second and tear her into pieces! She silently clenched her fists. Her face turned green and white, and her limbs went cold. She felt as if she had fallen into an icehouse. Unknowingly, cold sweat drenched her back.
The old master tapped the ground with his walking stick and said in a sinister tone, "No. 3 is like this. Please forgive her. I don’t want anyone to talk about what happened today. No matter what, she’s a member of the Tang family now! The main family!"
As soon as he said this, those people fell silent and agreed to this matter in silence.
However, there were also some people who felt that it was good to be the head of the family. No matter how many embarrassing things they did, they would have the backing of the old master. If it were anyone else, they would have been expelled from the family long ago, right? Thinking of this, they could not help but envy Tang Wenyi’s luck even more.
It seemed that reincarnation required skills!
"No. 3, let me ask you again. Do you have any objections to not having your year-end bonus this year?"
