Chapter 1343: Saying Sister Nian Is Not Suitable
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Yuan Qing was anxious to persuade Old Master Jiang. She said in a low voice, “Brother, don’t be foolish at this time! I don’t agree with what you said about the heir. Qiao Nian grew up in Rao City and was raised by someone else. How long has she been in Beijing? What does she know at her age? She only knows how to study… How can she inherit the Jiang family? Even if you don’t like Xianrou, there’s still Jiang Yao. Jiang Yao entered Tian Chen in his early twenties. His future is limitless. Isn’t he more suitable than Qiao Nian?”
Old Master Jiang was expressionless. His expression did not change because of her words, but his tone was firm. “What I have decided will not change.”
“But!” Yuan Qing was restless and looked a little anxious.
She was anxious.
She had been currying favor with the Jiang family’s second branch for more than ten years.
This was so that in a hundred years, Jiang Zongnan’s family could take care of her descendants on account of their ‘sensible’ elder.
Old Master Jiang suddenly said that the heir of the Jiang family was Qiao Nian, shattering all her beautiful dreams.
She had not forgotten how she had jumped up and down to protect the second branch when they were splitting the assets.
That time, she could say that she had offended the eldest branch completely.
In the past, she didn’t care about this matter. If she offended him, so be it. Jiang Zongjin was just a poor teacher, and Qiao Nian was just a student. She wasn’t afraid that they would hate her in the future as long as she clung to the second branch.
Old Master Jiang suddenly said that the Jiang family would be handed over to Qiao Nian in the future. This was undoubtedly a blow to Yuan Qing, who had always relied on the Jiang family’s protection to survive in Beijing.
How could she not be anxious? She was even more anxious than the second branch of the family. She was so anxious that it was as if there were nails on her stool. She didn’t know whether to sit.
Therefore, even though Old Master Jiang had already said that he wouldn’t change his mind, Yuan Qing still braced herself and stammered. “But Qiao Nian isn’t suitable! She’s still studying and doesn’t have much ability. How can she lead the Jiang family’s future development? She can’t even manage herself well.”
“Aunt, please have some self-respect!” Jiang Zongjin had already recovered from his initial shock. His expression suddenly darkened when he heard Yuan Qing say “Qiao Nian isn’t suitable”. His eyes were cold and domineering as he berated in a low voice, “I’m in charge of my daughter. It’s not up to Aunt to interfere.”
Yuan Qing couldn’t maintain her composure. She tightened her grip and her face turned red. She said sarcastically, “I’m your elder. How can you speak to me like that? Are all of you so disrespectful to your elders now?”
“That’s enough. You can’t be considered an official elder.” Old Master Jiang glanced at her indifferently with an obvious warning in his eyes. “I didn’t call you here to teach me how to do things. Just sit there and listen. You don’t have to express your opinion. Go back to your house if you don’t want to hear it.”
Yuan Qing was embarrassed by his straightforward words. She couldn’t say a word for a moment. She sat there awkwardly and did not dare to make a sound.
“These two matters are settled.” After announcing the two matters, Old Master Jiang looked tired. There was a layer of green under his eyelids, and he did not look well.
He waved his hand and said to the Jiang family members, “You guys can go back first.”
Tang Wanru and the others did not look too good, especially Jiang Yao and Jiang Xianrou. Their expressions were extremely ugly.
