    Zuo Shangchen's heartless words caused Su Lin to stumble backward in disbelief. She bit her lips and could not stop the tears from rolling down her face. At that moment, she could clearly feel the piercing pain in her heart.

    Why is he treating me this way despite my devotion to him? He even fiercely trampled my heart to the ground!

    How could Su Lin, who has always been full of pride, endure this?

    Just as Su Lin's entire body began to tremble, a cold and grim voice rang out from behind her. That voice was devoid of any emotion as it asked, "What's going on here? Lin'er, what are you doing here?"

    The Regional King walked in from outside the bedroom door. His cold gaze swept across the teary-eyed Su Lin's face before looking towards Gu Ruoyun and Zuo Shangchen.

    Before Su Lin could speak, Zuo Shangchen laughed icily. "Regional King, your Eldest Lady does not welcome Xiao Yun'er's presence in your home. Since that's the case, I'm taking Xiao Yun'er with me and leaving this place. We won't disturb you anymore."

    He then turned to look at Gu Ruoyun and smiled as he said, "Xiao Yun'er, let's go. I had brought you here to help you, not to give you any grief. Otherwise, if that fellow Gu Shengxiao ever find out that I had not taken good care of you, I'm afraid that he'll fly into a terrible rage."

    If someone like Gu Shengxiao, who had always been wrapped around his little sister's finger, were to find out that Gu Ruoyun had suffered grief, how could he accept it? Gu Ruoyun was his weak spot, no one could touch her!

    Gu Ruoyun nodded gently. She had come to the Regional King's Mansion for the competition and to ask the Regional King to help find Qianbei Ye's whereabouts. There was no need for her to willingly endure insult and humiliation in silence!

    "Sir Zuo, wait!" When the Regional King realized that Zuo Shangchen was about to take Gu Ruoyun away, his entire expression changed greatly as he hurriedly rushed to block their way.

    He then turned around, raised his hand and slapped Su Lin fiercely right across her face.

    The entire room returned to silence after the sound of the slap.

    Su Lin stroked her face as she stared at the Regional King with a dazed look. Her wide eyes were filled with disbelief.

    Her father had treasured her deeply since she was very young. Forget about hitting her, he could not even bear to touch her at all!

    Now, he has actually hit her because of this woman, Gu Ruoyun!

    Su Lin clenched her fists tightly as she sent a glare filled with poisonous daggers at Gu Ruoyun. Her gaze was filled completely with hatred.

    It's all because of this woman!

    Brother Chen had treated me this way since she had appeared. It's also because of her that my father has hit me for the first time!

    "Apologize!"

    The Regional King glared at Su Lin frostily as he tried his best to conceal his agonized heart with a cold aura. "Apologize to Lady Gu immediately!"

    "Father!" Su Lin slowly turned her gaze to the Regional King as she pointed at Gu Ruoyun. "You want me to apologize to this woman? What wrong have I committed to cause you to treat me this way? I was clearly the victim here. It's fine if Brother Chen does not help me but even you are treating me this way! What has this seductive fox done to you? Why have you become mystified as well? Have you forgotten all about my late mother?"

    The Regional King turned away. He did not have the courage to look into Su Lin's eyes which were full of hatred. He took a deep breath and forced the reluctance in his heart out before he spoke again, "An unruly and willful daughter like you does not belong in the Regional King's Mansion! Apologize to Lady Gu immediately. As our guest, she should have been treated with respect yet you had treated her rudely. If you don't apologize, you will be stripped of your position as the Regional King's Mansion's Eldest Lady!"
