Chapter 911: Mrs. Gu Is Here
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Seeing Xia Mengyan cry sadly, the surrounding people were furious. Mrs. Gu treated her elders and relatives like this just because she was married to President Gu. It was simply unreasonable.
When Xia Mengyan saw everyone’s indignant expressions, the corners of her mouth curled up slightly. Then, she pretended to be nervous and said, “Everyone, don’t misunderstand. Xi Xi has just become the president and is very busy every day. It’s not her intention to avoid Grandpa.”
However, the more she explained while trembling with fear, the more people felt that Qiao Xi looked down on them. Perhaps she even used her power to bully them. Under all this pressure, Qiao Xi might have to obediently hand over the shares of Qingfeng Entertainment.
Xia Mengyan stared fixedly at Qiao Xi. If she was unwilling to apologize, then she would be labeled as unfilial. The handover would probably not go smoothly either. Moreover, the internet would definitely be filled with curses. At that time, both entertainment companies would be boycotted. She wanted to see if Qiao Xi could hold on to her position as the president!
Unexpectedly, as soon as she finished speaking, Xia Mengyan heard a soft and choked voice. “Miss Xia, are you and Old Master Xia here to see me?”
Qiao Xi’s eyes were slightly red, and her voice trembled slightly. “Is this true? I thought you would never come to see me.”
Xia Mengyan was instantly stunned. Why was Qiao Xi crying? What was she trying to do?
Qiao Xi sneered in her heart, and her eyes were filled with disdain and disgust. When she heard that the two of them had come to Gu Corporation, she knew that there was definitely nothing good going on. Now that Qingfeng Entertainment and Heavenly Voice Entertainment had merged, the impact was huge. The Xia family would definitely get jealous. They wanted to stand on the moral high ground and force her to hand over Qingfeng Entertainment’s shares. However, with Xia Mengyan’s acting skills, was she worthy of pretending to be an innocent lady? Her skills were still lacking!
Qiao Xi lowered her head and squeezed out a few drops of tears. She choked and said, “Miss Xia, I thought that all of you had forgotten about me a long time ago. I sent you a lot of messages before, but they all went unanswered. I thought that you didn’t want to see me, so when I heard that my grandfather and cousin were here, I thought that scammers were pretending to be my family members. I never expected to really see you here!”
The receptionist quickly echoed, “That’s right. President Gu also thought that they were scammers, so he said that he wouldn’t see them. That’s because it’s impossible for Young Madam’s grandfather to come looking for her. Young Madam has never met or contacted her grandfather. She wouldn’t have expected her family to suddenly come over today.”
At this moment, everyone started to panic. “In that case, Young Madam and her grandfather have never met. Moreover, she has sent messages to her family but they didn’t respond. That’s why she didn’t believe that her grandfather was here to see her.”
“If Young Madam’s grandfather isn’t close to her, why did he suddenly show up today? If I were Young Madam, I wouldn’t believe it either!”
The corners of Xia Mengyan’s mouth twitched slightly. How did Qiao Xi instantly turn the situation around with just a few words? Her face was gloomy, and the man beside her hurriedly stood up to defend the injustice. “Mrs. Gu, are you truly happy that your grandfather and cousin are here to see you? In that case, why are you calling your grandfather ‘Old Master Xia’ and your cousin ‘Miss Xia’? If you really treat them as family, you wouldn’t be so distant.”
Everyone could not help but nod. They felt that Mrs. Gu’s way of addressing her family members was very strange. Xia Mengyan instantly heaved a sigh of relief. She admitted that Qiao Xi was a little smart, but she had made a mistake.
Qiao Xi lowered her head and was silent for a moment. Suddenly, she raised her eyes and looked at Xia Cheng and Xia Mengyan with tears in her eyes. “I’ve been wandering outside since I was young. I wanted to contact the Xia family, but I never got a response. Speaking of which, this is the first time I’ve met Old Master Xia. It’s normal for us to be unfamiliar with each other. Moreover… a long time ago, Old Master Xia asked Miss Xia to remind me that I’m just a wild girl. I’m not worthy to be a member of the Xia family, nor am I worthy to call him ‘Grandpa’. So before Old Master Xia agrees, I don’t dare to change how I address him so casually. I… Boo-hoo…”
After she finished speaking, Qiao Xi looked at the man from Jiye Corporation. Her eyes were red, and her voice was delicate. “Sir, I’m just respecting their wishes. That’s why I didn’t change the way I address them. You won’t blame me for this, right?”
Everyone’s hearts ached when they saw Mrs. Gu cry silently. They also heard that she had been wandering outside since she was young and the Xia family had never looked for her. They sympathized with her even more.
Xia Mengyan’s face was pale as she hurriedly stopped her. “Xi Xi, how can you say that? Grandpa clearly—”
“Miss Xia, Old Master Xia, I haven’t seen you in so many years. Could it be that you suddenly came here today for Qingfeng Entertainment?” Qiao Xi interrupted her with a trace of grievance in her tone as she looked at them in confusion.
