Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 595
“Control yourself. Don’t kill them,” Shen Yu warned.
Luo Qing nodded and watched as Shen Yu turned around and left. He leaped onto the roof opposite to observe the movements in the villa, then hid his tracks.
His eyes were cold and filled with killing intent.
If Shen Yu hadn’t stopped him, he would have killed these scumbags, but he had to endure it for Little Six.
Luo Qing flicked his wrist, and a slender silver needle was now in between his fingertips. His eyes narrowed, and before anyone could notice, he suddenly flicked it out.
“Ah! It hurts! What is it?” Xu Anyi’s painful cry came from inside the house.
On the other hand, Qiao Xi picked up Xu Zhi’s call. Her expression was cold. Gu Yao, who was beside her, sensed that the atmosphere was not right. He was so scared that he did not dare to make a sound. Gu Lele also lay on the ground obediently.
After a while, she sighed helplessly. “What do you mean, Mr. Xu?”
Xu Zhi was a little nervous. “Xi Xi, this—”
“You want to hold birthday parties for me and Xu Anran on the same day, but the parties will be divided into two venues. You want to see which of us can bring more benefits to the Xu family, right? Mr. Xu, you know very well that I’ve never attended a banquet before. I don’t have as many connections as Xu Anran. I’ll definitely lose this match! Do you want me to lose my dignity?”
Xu Zhi quickly explained, “Xi Xi, don’t think that way. I just want to celebrate your birthday for you. How could I want to embarrass you? It’s just that there’ll be too many guests, so we have to separate the parties.”
“Mr. Xu, do you think I’m a three-year-old child? There’s no point in beating about the bush. There are some things that are better said openly. You and Xia Yunlou just want to let the Yin family know that Xu Anran is the most suitable person to be the eldest daughter of the Xu family as she has more connections than me.”
Qiao Xi said lightly, “You don’t want the Gu family to get involved, and you want me to rely on my own connections for this event. But Mr. Xu, you know very well that I’m already at a disadvantage when compared to Xu Anran. Even so, you want me to attend this birthday banquet willingly. Don’t you have anything to say about this?”
Xu Zhi’s heart trembled. “What do you want?”
“Didn’t Gu Zheng say that as long as Xu Anran transfers the 30% of shares to me, he won’t hold a grudge against the Xu family? Did you forget what had happened yesterday so quickly?”
Qiao Xi sneered. “That’s the only way I’ll agree to attend the banquet. Otherwise, why would I go even though I know I’ll embarrass myself? I’m not a fool! It’s fine if you’re not willing to let Xu Anran suffer. Then just transfer her shares to me.”
Xu Zhi was in a difficult position.
To be fair, he liked Xu Anran more. After all, she was his daughter who had lived by his side for 20 years. She was smart, capable, beautiful, and generous. She was indeed qualified to be the eldest daughter of the Xu family.
Qiao Xi, on the other hand, was too mediocre. She didn’t look like someone who knew how to manage a company. If she managed the company, the Xu family would be finished. Hence, Anran and Anyi had to manage the company.
But… if they didn’t agree to Qiao Xi’s conditions, then the Yin family and Gu Zheng wouldn’t stop just like this.
He would agree to give her 30% of the shares first, but he wouldn’t let her manage the company. He could make this compromise.
Xu Zhi took a deep breath. “Okay! I agree, but you have to promise me that you’ll attend my birthday party.”
Qiao Xi smiled meaningfully. “Okay! I’ll be there on time. Don’t be late, Mr. and Mrs. Xu.”
After hanging up the phone, Gu Yao immediately scolded, “Does the Xu family really think that there’s no one else in the Gu family? They want a daughter like you who has been living outside to compete with Xu Anran? They want to use this to determine who’s the most qualified to be the eldest daughter of the Xu family? No one else can think of such a despicable way.”
Qiao Xi pursed her lips and remained silent.
Everyone could tell that the Xu family was biased toward Xu Anran. However, it didn’t matter to her. She didn’t care about that bit of pitiful kinship either. She had obtained 30% of the shares. It was still unknown who would lose their dignity in the end!
Gu Yao was indignant. “I’ll call people now!”
Qiao Xi waved her hand. “Don’t.”
“Why? Xu Anran and Xia Yunlou must have already contacted a lot of people. Although Xu Anyi is useless, he has a lot of friends. They’ll definitely attend Xu Anran’s birthday party.”
