Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 808
“Old Master Lu.” Qiao Xi slowly raised her eyes. “Don’t be angry yet. If you want to find fault with us, you have to think of a more appropriate excuse. Isn’t it too far-fetched to say that we’re shameless? Take your time to think about it. You still have a lot of time. The exchange will take an hour!”
This eccentric attitude angered Old Master Lu so much that his beard trembled. He roared, “I’m Ah Zheng’s grandfather!”
“So?” Qiao Xi blinked and had an innocent expression. “Old Master Lu, you’re old and your memory isn’t good, but I’m still young. Of course, I remember! You can’t possibly think that everyone’s brains are useless just because you’re not smart, right?”
Old Master Lu was so angry that he almost vomited blood. His wrist trembled as he pointed at her. “Qiao Xi! Remember this, I’m Ah Zheng’s grandfather. Our Lu family will never accept you! How can an ignorant and incompetent piece of trash like you be worthy of Ah Zheng’s noble identity? If you’re sensible, divorce him as soon as possible so that you won’t be abandoned in the future!”
Old Master Lu’s eyes darkened. Qiao Xi was Old Madam Yin’s granddaughter and the eldest daughter of the Yin family. If the Yin family’s power was used by Gu Zheng, it would be even harder for them to defeat Gu Zheng in the future.
It would be good if Qiao Xi could marry Ah Yan, but if she was unwilling, the Lu family would absolutely not allow her to live in harmony with Gu Zheng!
Qiao Xi’s expression remained indifferent when she heard the old master’s words. “I’m not worthy of Gu Zheng?”
Old Master Lu snorted. “It’s good that you know. Divorce Gu Zheng immediately!”
“How am I not worthy of him? I’m the internationally renowned designer Gu Shan and also the famous oil painter Han Yin. Now that Qiao Corporation is also my business, my net worth is about to surpass the Lu family’s. If I’m an ignorant and incompetent piece of trash, then what’s Lu Yan?
“Someone who’s a famous designer and oil painter is an ignorant and incompetent piece of trash in your eyes, huh? Even if I have a company with good prospects, it’s still not worth mentioning in your eyes. What kind of person is qualified in the eyes of the Lu family, then? Is it only someone like Lu Yan who relies on his family to support him and always loses money when doing business? Someone like him who hasn’t improved after so many years and is on the verge of bankruptcy? Is that sort of person deserving of praise by you?”
Qiao Xi smiled as she looked at him. “Actually, Lu Yan isn’t completely useless. At the very least, he could coax the Lu and Gu families to help him. It’s also a skill to rely on your elders! It seems that I can’t call him trash in the future!”
“Qiao… Xi!” Old Master Lu gritted his teeth and shouted. He was so angry that he was panting. He had lived for most of his life, but he was actually angered to the point of speechlessness by a 20-year-old girl!
“Hey! Old Master, you have to take care of your health! Also, let me remind you that I have medical skills. It’s not that easy to extort me. If this is discovered by others, your Lu family will be the one losing face!”
Qiao Xi crossed her arms and said arrogantly, “Don’t even think about finding someone to deal with me. Although I look weak, those who go against me all end up in a miserable state. If you have the time, why don’t you help Lu Yan manage the company? Otherwise, you won’t even know how you went bankrupt!”
“Qiao Xi!” Old Master Lu’s angry roar echoed in the corridor. His eyes almost popped out. “Listen carefully. No matter what, Gu Zheng is my grandson. If you anger me, I can make him bear the reputation of being unfilial with just one sentence!
“Apologize immediately, or I’ll make you two pay the price!”
Qiao Xi was silent. She knew that Gu Zheng did not care about his reputation, but she could not ignore this problem. After all, rumors were scary. She could not let the Lu family seize the bad reputation of being unfilial to threaten Gu Zheng.
After thinking for a moment, Qiao Xi’s eyes suddenly lit up. She had almost forgotten that she knew hypnosis!
Old Master Lu looked at her sinister smile and felt his entire body go cold. He retreated in horror. “Qiao Xi, you… What are you doing?”
“Old Master Lu.” Qiao Xi abruptly raised her eyes.
The moment he met her eyes, Old Master Lu’s body suddenly stiffened. His eyes were empty and bloodshot. He lowered his head like a puppet.
Qiao Xi leaned closer and ordered in a low voice by his ear, then took a few steps back.
Not long after, she heard Old Master Lu roar angrily, “Qiao Xi! I’m warning you to withdraw from this competition immediately. I won’t allow anyone to stand in Ah Yan’s way! I’m Gu Zheng’s grandfather. He has to listen to everything I say. Otherwise, he’s unfilial! If he goes against the Lu family, I’ll absolutely not let him off!”
