Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 810
Lu Yan was about to chase after her when he was stopped by someone. That person frowned. “Young Master Lu, Mrs. Gu entered a private lounge. It’s not convenient for you to enter. Moreover, Mrs. Gu won’t bicker with the Lu family. Don’t make things difficult for her anymore.”
He stopped in his tracks and looked at Qiao Xi’s back view with narrowed eyes. He never expected that Qiao Xi was the famous designer, Gu Shan. She would probably use her trump card this time.
Now that Gu Corporation no longer had an ace perfumer, the perfumes they produced would definitely not be as good as Sally’s. They could only work on the packaging. However, no matter how beautiful the packaging was, it was useless if the smell was bad. The customers would not pay for it.
On the other hand, Xia Mengyan was hiding in a corner with vicious eyes. Qiao Xi had Gu Zheng as her backer and was really not easy to deal with. If she returned to the Xia family one day, she would be even more unable to deal with.
Xia Mengyan rolled her eyes, picked up a pen and paper, wrote a note, and placed it on the coffee table in the lounge.
Not long after, the person in charge of Lu Corporation’s perfume department staggered to the lounge area. He reeked of alcohol. As soon as he sat down, he realized that there was a note on the coffee table. He was dumbfounded when he saw the signature.
Qiao Xi? Wasn’t she Gu Zheng’s weak wife?
The person in charge looked at the note and revealed a wretched smile. He did not expect Mrs. Gu to be so bold as to leave a note for him in the resting area. Was she not afraid of being discovered?
On the other hand, Xia Mengyan was chatting with a few young ladies when she bumped into Tang Lingyun from the Tang family. Everyone gathered together to talk bad about Qiao Xi.
Xia Mengyan said calmly, “Mrs. Gu is a little willful, but it’s just a misunderstanding between her and Tang Ruge. Lingyun, you have to know that if President Gu refuses to forgive the Tang family, the consequences will be very serious.”
Tang Lingyun was exasperated. “It’s all Qiao Xi’s fault! My sister wanted to help her out of goodwill, but she was played back by her. Now that she’s being mocked by the entire high society, she hasn’t dared to go out for many days!”
Xia Mengyan’s voice was gentle, but every word she said intensified the conflict. “Mrs. Gu doesn’t just have Gu Zheng as her backer. She’s also my cousin and has the Yin family protecting her. If you offend her, your Tang family will be in trouble. Your marriage might even be affected.”
Tang Lingyun was even angrier when she heard this. She wished for nothing more than to tear Qiao Xi into pieces and feed her to the dogs. Tang Lingyun was already stupid to begin with, so after being provoked by Xia Mengyan, she instantly lost her mind.
She slammed the wine glass on the table and shouted at Xia Mengyan, “You’re Qiao Xi’s cousin, so you’re not a good person either! So what if someone is protecting you? If you offend me, you won’t have a good ending!”
With that, Tang Lingyun left angrily.
Xia Mengyan was not angry. Instead, she smiled. When she looked up again, her eyes were filled with worry. “The Tang family is a scholarly family, after all. I really can’t bear to see the Tang family get implicated. Unexpectedly, Miss Tang doesn’t appreciate my goodwill. Forget it. Just pretend I never said anything!”
On the other hand, Tang Lingyun rushed to the lounge, raised the glass on the table, and smashed it at Qiao Xi. The people outside were all stunned by this sudden change.
Qiao Xi reacted quickly and dodged this attack, but the corner of her white dress was still stained with wine.
Tang Lingyun roared angrily. “Qiao Xi! Don’t even think about threatening me. I’m not afraid of you!”
Qiao Xi was speechless: “…” Was this person crazy?
Ever since the art exhibition, Qiao Xi thought that the Tang family would definitely calm down for a period of time. She would naturally not look for trouble with the Tang family as well. Unexpectedly, Tang Lingyun suddenly barged into her lounge today and smashed a glass at her.
Qiao Xi looked at the fragments all over the floor and felt displeased. A wave of killing intent appeared in her eyes, but because there were many people present, she could only maintain a smile. “Please excuse me for a moment. I’ll go change.”
Everyone could not help but sigh at how weak Mrs. Gu was. Tang Lingyun was already bullying her so badly, but Mrs. Gu did not lose her temper.
After Qiao Xi left, she wanted to find an empty lounge to change. After walking around, only Room 109 was available.
She stood at the door and thought for a moment. She remembered that Room 108 was empty previously. Why was there suddenly someone here? No one would come at this time, right?
She had a feeling that this lounge was deliberately left for her. As for the purpose, she was not sure.
After hesitating for a moment, Qiao Xi pushed the door open and entered. She took out a dagger from her bag to protect herself, then hid behind the door and quietly waited. Not long after, the door opened again.
