Qiao Xi heaved a sigh of relief. In that case, using blood to detoxify the poison was the right thing to do. However, she kept feeling slightly uneasy. She felt that Gu Zheng’s eyes had not fully recovered and only looked normal on the surface.
She frowned and was about to put down her phone when a thread popped up on the screen: [Willing to offer a doctor a lot of money! Looking for the descendant of the divine physician!]
Everyone commented: [The Xia family posted it. They’re offering 30 million! They’re really rich!]
Someone immediately replied: [30 million is nothing to the descendant of the divine physician. I remember that the descendant is a 20-year-old girl with a very unique personality. If she’s unwilling to save someone, it’s useless no matter how much money you offer her. Hence, she definitely doesn’t lack money. The Xia family has been looking for the divine physician for so long, but the girl has never appeared on their doorstep. I reckon they’ll be in trouble this time.]
Qiao Xi’s eyes were deep. Was it that Xia family? So Xia Cheng had been looking for the descendant of the divine physician? What a coincidence!
Her eyes were filled with a cold smile as she ignored the Xia family’s news. Suddenly, her phone rang. She opened it and saw that her private message inbox was about to explode. She was greeted with curses and accusations.
[Don’t you have any shame?! How dare you snatch someone else’s engagement, you b*tch?!]
[Your cousin is kind-hearted and doesn’t want to bicker with you, but you don’t feel guilty at all. You even kept finding trouble with your cousin? Do you have a conscience?]
Qiao Xi frowned in confusion and clicked on the relevant article. She instantly understood. This morning, Sally released a statement. As an internationally renowned perfumer, Sally’s account had always been the center of attention. Coupled with the fact that she came from a large family and had won many international awards, she had gained a large number of fans.
Sally uploaded a video of her playing the zither. Many sharp-eyed netizens immediately recognized that Sally was in Li City. Immediately, the number of comments increased.
[Is Miss Sally in Li City? I think I saw Li City’s ancient castle.]
[That’s right! It’s an ancient castle. I didn’t expect Miss Sally to live near the ancient castle! Every inch of land there is expensive! But I remember that Sally is from Luo City! Why did she go to Li City?]
After the fans asked the question, Xia Mengyan unexpectedly replied: [I signed a contract with Lu Corporation, so I came to Li City to work. My cousin is also in Li City, and my grandparents are also here for a while.]
Hearing Xia Mengyan’s reply, everyone could not help but be puzzled. [Miss Sally has a cousin? Why haven’t I heard of her?]
Everyone continued to ask the same question. Everyone was very curious about who Sally’s cousin was. Then, Xia Mengyan agreed to start a live broadcast in the afternoon to answer everyone’s doubts. Hence, reporters from various platforms rushed to the Xia family’s villa, wanting to get first-hand news.
However, the live broadcast that was supposed to start at two o’clock did not start for a long time. As the protagonist, Xia Mengyan, did not appear, the reporters could not help but enter to look for her. Unexpectedly, as soon as they entered, they heard the family’s conversation. “Grandpa, now that Cousin has already married President Gu, it’s meaningless to discuss whose marriage it’s supposed to be. I can’t ruin their marriage.”
The sounds of Xia Mengyan and Old Master Xia arguing came from upstairs. The old master shouted with a trembling voice, “Mengyan! You’re still so weak even after all these years. I told you a long time ago that you’d be bullied like this. Now, look, your fiance has been snatched away! The two of you are my granddaughters. I should be impartial, but she’s too much! If I don’t help you, you’ll be bullied to death by her!”
Then, Old Madam Xia tried to persuade him. “Old Master, don’t blame Mengyan. She doesn’t want to give up this engagement either. It’s just that that person has already married President Gu. What else can Mengyan do? She’s very sad too!”
Xia Cheng sighed helplessly. “I’ve never blamed Mengyan. I just feel sorry for her! As the granddaughter of the Xia family, it’s not difficult for that girl to get a good marriage partner. She could have married anyone, but she just had to snatch her cousin’s fiance! Back then, this marriage was indeed not publicized. Only the Gu and Xia families knew about it. The Gu family didn’t even take it to heart. If President Gu was willing to abide by the agreement, the person who married him should have been you!”
Xia Mengyan lowered her head, and her eyes were red. She choked and said, “Grandpa, I didn’t want this to happen either! But she’s my cousin! Moreover, President Gu doesn’t even know that the person he was supposed to be engaged to is me. Now that what’s done is done, I can only accept it!”
