Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 785
Qiao Xi instantly swallowed the words in her mouth. She looked at Gu Zheng in disbelief. What was Gu Zheng thinking just now? Could it be that in Gu Zheng’s heart, she was really weak?
After marrying Gu Zheng, she had always liked to pretend to be weak, but she also knew her limits. She knew that she could not deceive Gu Zheng with this little trick, but she never expected that Gu Zheng would really think that she was weak!
This world was too crazy!
Gu Zheng’s voice was cold. “Miss Tang.”
Tang Ruge smiled gently. She had been raised as a socialite since she was young. How could Qiao Xi compare to her? She believed that Gu Zheng would see her good side sooner or later. Thinking of this, she smiled generously. “President Gu.”
Gu Zheng said casually, “Miss Tang, do you like poking your nose into other people’s business?”
Tang Ruge’s expression changed as she forced a bitter smile. “No…”
“Miss Tang, you seem to have forgotten that you and your master, Qi Zhong, were publicly humiliated yesterday,” Gu Zheng said casually, but his eyes were filled with mockery.
“Qi Zhong has already paid the price for his ignorance. Miss Tang, are you still going to follow his path? I hope you can understand that you’re standing here safe and sound not because you’re lucky but because Xi Xi isn’t willing to bicker with you.”
Qiao Xi raised her head and smiled confidently. “Miss Tang, my husband has already made himself very clear. I hope you can open your eyes to see the truth. Don’t keep asking for trouble!”
Tang Ruge’s face was pale as she bit her lip. Of course, she could hear the threat in Gu Zheng’s words.
However, what right did Gu Zheng have to be so biased toward Qiao Xi? He did not know that Qiao Xi’s paintings were all plagiarized! What right did such a woman have to be the mistress of the Gu family? What right did she have to stand by Gu Zheng’s side and be protected by him?
Gu Zheng just did not know the truth and thought that Qiao Xi was a talented and knowledgeable woman, so he protected her. If he found out the truth, he would definitely hate Qiao Xi.
“Xi Xi, let’s go.” Gu Zheng held Qiao Xi’s hand and helped her out of the car.
The two of them were just about to leave when Qiao Xi suddenly stopped in her tracks. She turned around and smiled lightly. “I heard that many people from the Tang family came yesterday and lost their dignity in front of so many relatives and friends. Miss Tang, you’re still so calm. How admirable!”
Tang Ruge clenched her fists tightly, and her eyes were filled with resentment. She wished for nothing more than to skin Qiao Xi alive. Why was Qiao Xi so lucky? Not only did she have the rich and powerful Gu Zheng as her backer, but even the Yin family doted on her very much. Perhaps one day, that powerful family would treat her as their beloved daughter.
However, she, Tang Ruge, was the top socialite in the capital. She was the first to know Gu Zheng. She should have married Gu Zheng and enjoyed supreme power. What right did Qiao Xi have to easily snatch everything away from her?
However, Qiao Xi’s reputation would be ruined soon. She had plagiarized Han Yin’s work. Even if she had Gu Zheng as her backer, she would not be able to avoid such a scandal. The International Oil Painting Organization would absolutely not let Qiao Xi off easily.
Tang Ruge smiled proudly, then made a call. “Mom, I’m here. Are you and Brother Jin Yan here? I heard that Brother Jin Yan likes Han Yin’s work very much. Han Yin’s work will be shown in this art exhibition. He’ll definitely be happy to see it.”
After hanging up, Tang Ruge entered the exhibition hall.
After she left, a young man and woman walked out. Mu Ling frowned. “What is this woman doing? Isn’t Jin Yan the young master of the Jin family? Why did she invite him over for no reason?”
Mu Ling was furious and complained to her brother, Mu Ming, “They were the ones who tampered with Dad and Mom’s car accident back then. Now, they’ve snatched what originally belonged to us siblings. Tang Ruge is even using her identity as the eldest daughter of the Tang family to befriend the daughters and young masters of noble families. She’s really shameless!”
At the mention of their parents’ car accident, Mu Ming’s eyes narrowed. Back then, after he and his sister were chased out of the house, the two of them lived on the streets. They did not have enough to eat and had no other clothes to warm them. It was not easy for them to survive and become top hackers. However, they were just hackers and did not have any actual power. It was indeed too difficult to take down the Tang family.
Moreover, when the siblings were chased out of the Tang family, no one stood up for them. They were left to fend for themselves. Perhaps their parents’ car accident was jointly plotted by the entire Tang family. In everyone’s eyes, the siblings were nothing to be afraid of.
