Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Seeing Xia Mengyan cry bitterly, everyone pitied her. Qiao Xi was still unwilling to admit it because of her identity as Mrs. Gu. She wanted Miss Xia to swallow her anger.
What right did Qiao Xi have to be so arrogant? She was the one who did something wrong and even used her identity as Mrs. Gu to suppress the victims. She was really immoral and heartless!
“Miss Xia, stop crying. Your makeup is all ruined. You weren’t good-looking to begin with, so you’re even uglier now.”
Qiao Xi’s teasing voice sounded. Xia Mengyan hurriedly wiped her tears and picked up the mirror to look at her makeup. She was afraid that Gu Zheng would think that she was in a sorry state. Her eyes were red in the mirror, but her makeup was not messy. Instead, she just looked pitiful. Only then did Xia Mengyan realize that she had been teased.
However, before Xia Mengyan could speak, Qiao Xi said casually, “Miss Xia, you said that you don’t want to ruin our marriage, but your Xia family released the news of your engagement to Gu Zheng. Why? Do you still want to be a b*tch?”
Xia Mengyan’s face was fierce. The anger in her heart burned fiercely, and she could not help but retort, “Xi Xi, what right do you have to say that about me? I’m the one who’s supposed to be engaged to Ah Zheng. I’m the victim! I’ve never thought of being a mistress!”
The corners of Qiao Xi’s mouth curled into a cold smile as she slowly walked in front of her and whispered in her ear, “Xia Mengyan, it’s a pity that you’re not an actress. I almost believed you.”
Xia Mengyan raised her eyes and met Qiao Xi’s indifferent eyes. Her heart suddenly skipped a beat. Why was Qiao Xi still so calm at a time like this?
Xia Ji also noticed that something was wrong and wanted to stop Qiao Xi from speaking, but Qiao Xi had already said, “Miss Xia, you say that you don’t want to be a mistress, but you’re forcing Gu Zheng to be the third party for the sake of achieving your goal. Isn’t this too inhumane?! You care about your reputation, but don’t you care about Gu Zheng’s life or death?”
The entire venue was silent. Everyone widened their eyes and looked at Qiao Xi in disbelief. What exactly did she say? Gu Zheng was a third party?
Someone said angrily, “What nonsense are you talking about?! You did something wrong, yet you’re still slandering others! What’s the use?!”
The other person was calm. “Stop arguing. Let’s hear what President Gu has to say first.”
Everyone looked at Gu Zheng and heard him say casually, “I did have a fiancee previously, but I’ve never said that my fiancee was Miss Xia.”
The moment that was said, everyone gasped. He actually did not admit that Xia Mengyan was his fiancee?
Xia Mengyan’s face was pale and filled with sorrow. “Ah Zheng, you can’t deny our marriage just because you like Xi Xi. Moreover, the Lu family has already admitted it.”
“Miss Xia, let me remind you that the Lu family doesn’t represent me. Also, don’t call me Ah Zheng. I’m not familiar with you. Moreover, you clearly have a fiance, but you’re still shameless enough to want to marry me. Do you actually think you’re beautiful enough to be acting like this? Have you ever considered how your fiance will feel when you do this?”
Everyone was dumbfounded as if they had been struck by lightning. The atmosphere was silent for a few seconds before the scene exploded.
“Did I hear wrongly? President Gu said that Miss Xia has another fiance? How is that possible?”
“The Xia and Lu families have already admitted to this marriage. How could they be lying? Even if the Xia family might be lying, the Lu family is the family of President Gu’s grandfather. They have no reason to lie!”
“Moreover, this matter has caused an uproar. If Miss Xia really has a fiance, why hasn’t he appeared?”
Xia Mengyan’s body gradually stiffened. Her lips were pale, and her eyes were filled with horror. She was at a loss. “Ah Zheng… President Gu, what are you talking about? I don’t understand.”
In the past, the Xia family was also worried that this engagement would be found out by others. However, the Xia family was a big family in Luo City, after all. It was not difficult for them to hide this matter. Moreover, it had been many years since then. Who would know that secret?
However, at this moment, Xia Cheng’s body suddenly softened. His body trembled violently, but he still gritted his teeth and retorted, “President Gu, even if you don’t want to admit the engagement, you shouldn’t slander Mengyan’s reputation like this.”
Old Madam Xia looked at the Yin family with deep hatred in her heart. She was now the madam of the Xia family, but Yin Jinglin was still looking at her with a mocking gaze as if she was a mistress.
One day, she would let Mengyan marry Gu Zheng in Qiao Xi’s place and have the Xia family completely suppress the Yin family. Yin Lianxin would never be able to raise her head again.
