Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 805
Chapter 805: Xi Xi, Long Time No See
A while ago, the news of the real and fake daughter had spread throughout the city. Everyone had heard about it. If Mrs. Gu was really Xia Yunlou’s daughter, then Xia Mengyan and Mrs. Gu could be considered cousins.
Everyone subconsciously looked at Xia Mengyan, and Qiao Xi also noticed the young woman in the crowd.
Xia Mengyan smiled and went forward to greet her. “Xi Xi, long time no see.”
Qiao Xi raised her eyes to glance at the woman in front of her. She did not expect to meet Sally so soon. She really did not want to see this woman!
Previously, when she was overseas, she did not get along with Sally. Now that they had met in the country, she heard that Sally’s surname was Xia. What was her relationship with Xia Yunlou?
Xia Mengyan smiled and said, “You don’t know yet, right? I’m the daughter of the Xia family. Xia Yunlou is my aunt, so I’m your cousin.”
Qiao Xi nodded, her expression unchanged.
Xia Mengyan smiled gently. “Xi Xi, I thought that we could get along well from before. I didn’t expect you to be my cousin. Are you also here for the perfume exchange today? Are you also a perfumer?”
The entire venue was silent as their gazes shifted between the two of them.
Apart from perfumers, there were also representatives from various companies who came to participate in the perfume exchange. However, Qiao Xi did not have a position in Gu Corporation. She did not have the qualifications to represent Gu Corporation, so who was she?
Xia Mengyan caught hold of Qiao Xi’s weakness and deliberately exposed her scars in public. “Xi Xi, ever since Aunt got a divorce, she’s been crying all day. She’s about to go blind from crying. I don’t know what happened between the two of you, but she’s your mother, after all. What hatred can there be between mother and child? I hope you can make a trip back to the Xia family with me to see Aunt—”
“Miss Xia, you already said that you don’t know what happened. What right do you have to say these words in front of Xi Xi?” Gu Zheng interrupted Xia Mengyan. His voice was indifferent, but it made one feel a chill.
Xia Mengyan’s body trembled, and her face turned pale.
On the other hand, Lu Yan’s assistant brought the young masters of the Lu family in. When he saw Xia Mengyan’s aggrieved expression, he was instantly unhappy. Moreover, the Lu family and Gu Zheng were not on good terms to begin with. At this moment, he said arrogantly, “Mrs. Gu, this is the perfume exchange conference. Unrelated people can’t participate. Are you going to leave now, or should we get someone to send you out?”
Gu Zheng’s entire body emitted killing intent, but Qiao Xi asked with a smile, “Are you chasing me away?”
“If you’re sensible, you’d better leave yourself. It’ll be embarrassing if you’re chased out. We’re not targeting you. This is the rule of the perfume exchange.” The Lu family was proud.
Qiao Xi walked to the sofa in the resting area and sat down. She lazily leaned to the side and asked gently, “Then why is Miss Xia here?”
When the Lu family heard this, they immediately laughed.
Xia Mengyan hurriedly explained, “Xi Xi, have you forgotten? I’m the internationally renowned perfumer, Sally. I’m also the chief perfumer invited by the Lu family.”
With that, Xia Mengyan looked at Gu Zheng and said gently, “President Gu, long time no see. I didn’t expect your wife to be Xi Xi. We can be considered to be related to each other now.”
Everyone present knew that Xia Mengyan was the chief perfumer invited by the Lu family. However, Mrs. Gu even asked such a stupid question in public. She was really embarrassing President Gu!
Qiao Xi’s eyes were clear as she said slowly, “So, you’re participating in the exchange while representing the Lu family?”
Xia Mengyan was just about to nod when Qiao Xi chuckled. “Then why can’t I participate while representing Gu Corporation?”
If it were any other time, it would be understandable for Mrs. Gu to attend banquets while representing Gu Corporation. However, the requirements for the perfume exchange meeting were strict. Only the higher-ups of the company were qualified to attend. However, Mrs. Gu clearly did not meet these two requirements.
Gu Zheng stood beside Qiao Xi with a calm expression.
Song Shijing explained loudly, “Miss Xia isn’t the only one in this world who can participate in the production of perfumes. Our young madam is the designer of Gu Corporation’s new perfume packaging. Of course, she has the right to attend the perfume exchange.”
The entire venue was in an uproar. Obviously, everyone did not believe that Qiao Xi could design packaging.
Xia Mengyan lowered her eyes aggrievedly. “I’m sorry, I’ve offended you. I just didn’t expect Gu Corporation to let Mrs. Gu handle their packaging design.”
“Miss Xia, you knew Young Madam before this, so you should know her identity. How could you ask such a silly question?”
Song Shijing looked disdainful. “Our young madam is the internationally renowned designer Gu Shan. Don’t you know that, Miss Xia?”
