It was not until they got back to the car that Old Master Yi finally whispered, “Call Yi Yang. Get him back here.”
“Dad, this thing…”
“I said, call Yi Yang back here!”
Helplessly, Mrs. Yi called Yi Yang and asked him to come home.
Yi Yang, who received the call from Mrs. Yi, did not know what had happened. He only knew that his grandfather told him to come home so there must be something urgent.
He quickly hurried and as soon as he entered the door, he sensed that something was wrong. The atmosphere at home was clearly off.
Butler Chen told him that the Old Master was waiting for him upstairs in the study and gave him a wink, warning him to be careful.
Yi Yang silently walked upstairs, all the while wondering why Old Master Yi was looking for him.
When he arrived at the study, his mother and grandfather were both sitting on the sofa with serious expressions. When they saw him come through the door they put the paternity test result in front of Yi Yang.
Old Master Yi tightly gripped his cane and looked at Yi Yang sternly. “Take a look. Then explain to me what this is all about.”
Old Master Yi had always disliked the proclivities of rich men.
When he was young, he often saw young men who misbehaved using their families money, they would spend a lot of money and irresponsibly play with women. He had seen with his own eyes that none of them came to a good end.
Either their family would become middling in quality, or it would decline until it reached a dead end. if a family wanted to rise and continue exceeding, their men could not behave this way.
That was why, from the time they were small, Old Master Yi was very strict with both Yi Yang and Yi Yang’s father.
Yi Yang glanced at the paternity test his grandfather handed to him. His eyes were fixed on the four bright red words ‘Father-son relationship confirmed’.
“Today, when I was accompanying your grandfather to the hospital for a checkup, we happened to meet a child named Tong Tong. He said that he was taken by his mother to the hospital for a paternity test. After that, we met the child’s mother. It was Xu Weiyin. She said the baby was yours. She said she spent a night with you four years ago. This paternity test was also taken from her.”
Yi Yang put down the paternity test results. When he spoke his tone was as indifferent as ever, you could not hear any ups or downs. “Was it really a coincidence?”
“What do you mean?”
“In such a big hospital, how could there be such a coincidence that the child came and found you?”
“What are you saying?”
Yi Yang explained: “Mom, this paternity test is fake. Xu Weiyin planned the whole thing.”
Mrs. Yi and Old Master Yi exchanged looks. “How do you know it’s fake?”
“At Old Master Jiang’s banquet, Xu Weiyin showed me this same paternity test. I’ve already confirmed that it was fake. Also, at the banquet, she plotted to push Xinyi into the swimming pool. Xu Weiyin is a vicious woman, she’s not a good person.”
“She pushed Xinyi into the pool? You mean during that banquet for Jiang Cheng?”
Old Master Yi slammed the table and said angrily, “That woman is simply abhorrent! You really did the right thing, she deserved to be banned!”
“But why did she make this up?”
“Maybe she thought that you and grandfather were anxious to have grandchildren so she could use this paternity test to make you and grandfather…”
“Forget it,” Old Master Yi had come to a judgment about who was right and who was wrong here from Yi Yang’s unflinching demeanor. He knew in his heart what kind of person his own grandson was. “No matter whether these paternity test results are real or fake, Xinyi must not know.”
“Yes,” Mrs. Yi said hurriedly, “You mustn’t let Xinyi know about this. That child seems strong but she’s really very delicate. If she finds out, she may not know what to think.”
Old Master Yi frowned and sighed deeply. “Then this matter is settled. No one should let Xinyi know. Yi Yang, I know you are busy with your work so just let us solve this matter, you don’t have to worry about it.”
Mrs. Yi agreed quickly, “Yes, you don’t have to worry about this at all. I’ve seen a lot of girls like Xu Weiyin over the years. Your mother here will help you solve it.”
Hearing what his two elders were saying, Yi Yang nodded and agreed.
They did not delay the matter too long because Old Master Yi did not want to drag things out and potentially allow any problems to form, so the very next day he took some of Yi Yang’s blood to a reliable hospital.
Xu Weiyin and her son were also brought along.
It was not really appropriate for the child to be present at this kind of scene so after the nurse drew his blood, she took the child to another room to rest.
“Then, Old Master…”
“Now that I’ve heard about this matter, I will determine the truth. Since you say that this child belongs to Yi Yang, I will have them do another paternity test under my nose today.”
Xu Weiyin knew that this was the critical moment. She was not afraid of the paternity test, as long as Old Master Yi was willing to give her child some status in the Yi Family after he got the results.
“And what if Tong Tong is really your great-grandson? Will you let him into the Yi household?”
Old Master Yi glanced at her. “Before I’m dead, only my grandson’s wife, Xu Xinyi, can enter a great-grandson into the Yi family. I will only recognize Xinyi’s children. Of course, if the test result shows that he is really Yi Yang’s child then I will not mistreat you. The Yi family has many properties outside, so you two can choose any place you like to live. “
The implication being that no matter whether the child was Yi Yang’s or not, an illegitimate child could never enter the Yi family. At most he will find a house for her to raise him in outside.
Xu Weiyin turned pale and her hands began to tremble.
She had heard that this white-haired old man was patient and kind when it came to children. So why would he let a child of the Yi family be raised outside?
And not let him into the house at all?
“Old Master, if it’s because of me, I can assure you that as long as you let Tong Tong enter the Yi household, I can stop contacting Tong Tong in the future.”
Mrs. Yi smiled from the side. “I’ve often heard that when husband and wife divorce, the woman will want their children even if they have to give up on the family possessions. How many women out there cry and scheme in order to win custody of their children? But why is that when it comes to Miss Xu, she would rather sever ties with her son and send him to the Yi family to raise? What’s more, it comes after Miss Xu had the heart to raise him on her own for three or four years.”
Xu Weiyin bit her lower lip.
It was as if a piece of meat was being carved from her body, so how could she have the heart to sever the relationship with her son and let her child become a stranger from this day forward?
But Old Master Yi seemed so strict that she felt she could only use this last bargaining chip in an attempt to soften Old Master Yi’s stone heart.
“I really don’t have the heart to do it but that child has always been asking where his father was ever since he was old enough to think of the question. In his kindergarten, he was often bullied by the other children, they would call him a wild boy without a father. Every time I went to pick him up…” Xu Weiyin fell silent and seemed to be sorting out her mood. After a moment, she took a deep breath and said, “Anyway, I can’t let his childhood be ruined because of me, so I must find his father for him.”
“So it was like this,” Mrs. Yi said with a smile that didn’t reach the bottom of her eyes. “I was wrong to blame Miss Xu.”
Xu Weiyin choked up and spoke no further.
Only after a long time did she father herself enough to look at Old Master Yi and say, “Old Master, I really want Tong Tong to have a family. I don’t care about anything else as long as Tong Tong is happy. If this is because of Mrs. Yi, I can ask her myself, and I can also explain to her that this was all because of an inadvertent mistake after being drunk. I can accept any request she puts forward!”
The Old Master slowly closed his eyes and then opened them after gathering his thoughts. “Miss Xu, let me make it clear that this matter has nothing to do with Xinyi. You shouldn’t blame her for everything. Besides, I’m the one who won’t let the child enter the Yi family so why do you want to beg her?”
“Alright, after you’ve said so much, I understand. But if you want to have Tong Tong enter the Yi household you’ll have to wait for the results of the test first. Before that, I hope you can be quiet and not disturb others.”
After Xu Weiyin was interrupted her face turned blue and white but due to Old Master Yi’s dignity, she had to just shut up and wait for the results of the paternity test.
Generally speaking paternity test results needed 7-10 working days to come out, but because Old Master Yi was here in person and told the hospital that he wanted the results within three hours the staff were working very urgently.
During the next three hours, none of the people sitting in the lounge spoke any further.
Almost three hours later on the dot the results of the paternity test were delivered to Old Master Yi.
Xu Weiyin didn’t have any trace of panic on her face.
She had done the paternity test twice already, so she had no doubt Tong Tong was Yi Yang’s child. There could be no mistake.
Old Master Yi looked at the paternity test result, it was stamped with ‘No biological relationship’ in big scarlet letters. Then he looked up and showed it to Xu Weiyin.
“Miss Xu, I don’t know why you showed me that fake paternity test yesterday, but now I think you should be convinced that he is not Yi Yang’s child, right?”
The three red words ‘No biological relationship’ were like three sharp blades that firmly pierced Xu Weiyin’s heart.
She shook her head in disbelief. “No way! This is absolutely impossible! I have done two different paternity tests and both of them showed that Yi Yang was the father. How is it possible that as soon as I come to this hospital, the child isn’t Yi Yang’s?”
Mrs. Yi smiled and said, “Miss Xu, we also want to ask you the same question, why were the test results from the two hospitals different? But it doesn’t matter. We kept the paternity test from the other hospital so if we call the police, I think the police will be able to find out which one is real and which one is fake.”
Xu Weiyin didn’t listen to what the Yi elders were saying at all. All she could see was the paternity test in Old Master Yi’s hand and the three bright red words.
No biological relationship.
“No way! The child is Yi Yang’s, Tong Tong is Yi Yang’s child! That night, when I woke up the next day, I was in Yi Yang’s room. I asked the waiter from the hotel and they told me that Yi Yang was staying in that room.” She shook her head slowly. “No, this isn’t right. The child is Yi Yang’s. This paternity test is fake!”
Xu Weiyin looked at Old Master Yi and her eyes turned red. “You must be lying to me! You don’t want the child to enter the Yi household, so you made the doctors create a fake paternity test to deceive me!”
“Well, since you think my paternity test is fake, we can solve this,” Old Master Yi looked at Mrs. Yi and ordered, “Call the police.”
Mrs. Yi nodded and asked her assistant to call the police.
Soon the police arrived.
After explaining what had happened, Old Master Yi asked the police to do a fair paternity test.
The police agreed and took Yi Yang’s blood sample and Xu Weiyin’s son’s blood sample back to the police station.
“Miss Xu, I hope you will be satisfied with the result the police station gives us.”
Xu Weiyin had regained her calm. She said, “Of course. I trust the police.”
“Good, then let’s wait for the results of the police examination.”
That night, Xu Weiyin stayed up all night, and those three bright red words seemed to scroll on a loop in her mind.
No biological relationship.
After leaving the hospital, she tried to call Jiang Huai to ask him what was going on.
But ever since the last time when she screwed things up at the Jiang family villa, Jiang Huai had not contacted her again and now he was not even answering her calls.
At that moment, Xu Weiyin seemed to understand something.
That man who she had thought was clinging to her, who she thought was playing with her in the palm of her hand, had actually just been playing with her all along.
Now that he was tired and didn’t want to play anymore and felt that she was of no further use, he decided to kick her away.
The sincerity you gave was the sincerity you received, that was what she had once thought about Jiang Huai, who she mistakenly thought loved her.
That was right.
It was true that to move another person’s heart your own heart had to move.
Since her heart never moved, how could she have gotten Jiang Huai’s heart?
Since she had always thought she was infallible maybe she deserved to be played with.
The following evening, the police station’s test report came out, and in the presence of many people, the results of the paternity test report were released.
“Old Master Yi, the results of the paternity test show that your son Yi Yang and the son of Miss Xu Weiyin do not have a father-son relationship.”
Old Master Yi nodded and thanked the officer.
“But Miss Xu said that she did two paternity tests before that showed that my son and Miss Xu’s son had a father-son relationship. I have reason to believe that this is not an accident. I hope the police can help me look into this matter.”
“We will investigate as soon as possible.”
Mrs. Yi helped Old Master Yi to his feet.
Xu Weiyin sat there alone with the paternity test result.
“Miss Xu, since you have nothing to do with Yi Yang, please don’t appear in front of Yi Yang and Xinyi in the future, otherwise, it won’t end at just being banned!”
Tl note : huh I didn’t see that coming. Seems Xu Weiyin genuinely didn’t know. Now I feel kind of bad for her honestly. Seems like the real scum bag at the bottom of all this is Jiang Huai. Also, will the cops really just run a paternity test for you if you ask them to? Why have I never heard of that haha
