Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 1010
Chapter 1010: Could This Be Love?
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Li Xing’er stopped in her tracks.
Had she heard wrongly? Was that voice coming from Qiao Xi? Was she acting cute? She had beaten Butler Liu up until his face was swollen, yet she still had the cheek to say that she was afraid?
President Gu was such a smart person. He must have seen through her a long time ago. One could not deceive this man just by crying a little.
Then, Li Xing’er heard Gu Zheng’s gentle voice. “Don’t be afraid. Be good, I’m here to save you.”
Li Xing’er instantly felt uncomfortable. She looked up at Gu Yao. The two of them were equally shocked and puzzled. Could this be love?
Butler Liu was similarly shocked. He glared fiercely at Qiao Xi. How did this woman have the cheek to say such things? She was clearly so vicious when she hit him just now, yet she was still acting cute toward Gu Zheng now.
“Butler Liu, our young madam is kind-hearted. She only wanted you to compensate her for her mother’s destroyed belongings. I didn’t expect you to try to hurt the weak young madam and scare her. You have to pay the price for this.”
She was kind-hearted? She was weak? Were these people blind? He was the one who was hurt!
Butler Liu was about to retort when he suddenly realized that he could not speak. He looked up abruptly and met Song Shijing’s smiling eyes. His voice was filled with mockery and mockery. “Don’t be afraid. Even if you can’t speak now, you can breathe!”
Qiao Xi curled up in Gu Zheng’s embrace with a pitiful appearance of being shocked.
The next second, Song Shijing said word by word, “Butler Liu, I’m sorry to tell you that you’ve been poisoned. You must be very curious about who poisoned you, right?”
Butler Liu tried to speak, but he could not make a single sound. Only waves of painful sobs came from his throat. His heart trembled as he abruptly looked at Qiao Xi. She still had that pitiful and weak appearance, but her eyes carried a trace of a cold smile.
Song Shijing smiled. “You’re not too stupid. Our young madam did poison you.”
Qiao Xi smiled lightly at Butler Liu, but this smile caused his scalp to go numb as though he was watching a horror movie.

It was actually Qiao Xi who poisoned him! When did she poison him? Why didn’t he notice at all?
“Why don’t I tell you another secret? Actually, the antidote Xia Cheng got from the Medical Association was developed by our young madam.” Song Shijing’s voice was very soft, but it scared Butler Liu so much that he fell from the sofa.
All of them had been deceived by Qiao Xi’s weak appearance. Qiao Xi had long known about Old Master Xia’s plan. She deliberately did not expose him and even played along with everyone. Everything was within her expectations.
“Butler Liu, you should understand how stupid it is to attack Young Madam now, right?” After Song Shijing finished speaking, the corners of Qiao Xi’s mouth twitched.
Her weak image could not be maintained anymore! Now, everyone knew that she had beaten Butler Liu up.
Butler Liu stared fixedly at Qiao Xi, his eyes filled with horror and resentment. From the beginning until the end, Qiao Xi had not fallen for the Xia family’s trap. She had willingly drunk that glass of wine and taken that pill, giving Xia Cheng hope and teasing everyone in the Xia family.
Song Shijing said with a smile, “Butler Liu, you can’t tell anyone this secret. If you do, you’ll be in trouble. Moreover, even if you tell others, no one will believe that the weak Mrs. Gu had beaten you up.
“The Xia family pushed you out to take the blame and never planned on saving you. Since Xia Cheng is so heartless, why don’t you collaborate with us and write down everything you know?”
Hope reignited in Butler Liu’s eyes. Then, he heard Song Shijing ask, “Who’s Xia Yunlou? Where’s the real Xia Yunlou? And why did they destroy Madam Xia Yunqiu’s belongings?”

Song Shijing was interrogating Butler Liu while Gu Zheng sat on the sofa with his eyes closed. Qiao Xi leaned against him weakly and glanced at him guiltily.
She stared at the man for a long time. She thought that he was probably tired and had already fallen asleep, so she wanted to run away. After all, she had yet to investigate the Medical Association. Those people were still waiting for her!
Qiao Xi had just stood up and carefully walked toward the door.
“Mrs. Gu.” The man’s cold and smiling voice sounded, and her body suddenly froze.
At this moment, Gu Zheng’s eyes were clear without a trace of sleepiness. As he looked at Qiao Xi, who was tiptoeing, he thought he was looking at a little rabbit that wanted to escape. His voice was low and hoarse. “Mrs. Gu, shouldn’t you explain why you’re in Blue Dream Pavilion? This is a place to drink and have fun. What are you doing here?”
