Xia Ji shuddered and hurriedly rushed over to stop her. “Turn it off!”
“The Xia family has always said that Xia Mengyan’s fiance is Ah Zheng. I’m curious about who’s the groom on this marriage contract.”
The screen suddenly enlarged, and an old marriage contract appeared in front of everyone. The date was 20 years ago, and the two parties’ names were clearly written on the marriage contract.
Xia Cheng’s beard trembled slightly. At this moment, he had already lost his mind and rushed to the stage. “Turn it off! This is fake! Qiao Xi! You’re framing us!”
No matter what, Xia Cheng had lived for decades and had seen all kinds of things. He had long since stopped showing his emotions on his face. However, at this moment, he was shouting crazily without caring about his image. The more agitated he was, the more curious everyone was about the secret behind this marriage contract.
Old Madam Xia, who had collapsed on the chair, heard Xia Cheng’s roar and instantly stood up. At this moment, the Xia family was trying their best to cover the marriage contract, but the big screen was too high. Their efforts were useless. Everyone could still see it clearly.
Xia Cheng’s signature was clearly shown on the marriage contract, and on the other side, there was Xiao Lu’s signature.
Everyone was confused. Who was this person? Shouldn’t the signature for the groom be Miss Lu Qingyun’s signature? Previously, the Xia family said that this engagement was arranged by Xia Yunqiu and Lu Qingyun.
This marriage contract was extremely formal and made of gorgeous materials. It was enough to show that the Xia family valued this marriage contract very much. Xia Mengyan was engaged not long after she was born. It seemed that the two families were very close, but…
“Have you heard of this name?”
Qiao Xi raised her eyebrows and said, “Does everyone think it’s very strange? Ah Zheng’s surname is Gu, and his mother’s surname is Lu. Why would someone with the surname Xiao appear on the marriage contract?”
Xia Ji’s face was livid. He was about to retort when Qiao Xi spoke first, “Mr. Xia, we spent money to hire the hacker named Mo Yuan to investigate this. If you doubt the authenticity of the marriage contract, we can meet in court. At that time, we’ll ask Mr. Mo Yuan to testify for us.”
Xia Ji was instantly speechless. Who would dare to question the hacker, Mo Yuan?
“The marriage contract was personally signed by you, Mr. Xia Ji. If you’re unconvinced, you can look for a professional to check the handwriting. Mr. Xia, do you have any questions?”
Looking at Qiao Xi’s smiling appearance, the members of the Xia family were fuming with anger. Xia Mengyan was still immersed in her joy just now. She originally thought that Qiao Xi would not be able to endure the curses of everyone and would have no choice but to give up her position as Mrs. Gu. However, the marriage contract from 20 years ago was actually exposed now.
At this moment, someone suddenly shouted, “Xiao Lu?
“I remember that there was indeed a Xiao family in Luo City in the past, but they went bankrupt a few years ago. After that, the head of the Xiao family left Luo City with his family. Could it be that the Xiao family in the marriage contract is them?”
“That’s indeed possible! This marriage contract was set 20 years ago, so Miss Xia has always said that she has a fiance. A few years ago, the Xiao family went bankrupt, so the Xia family didn’t acknowledge this marriage. However, the two families didn’t cancel the marriage contract, so the Xia family just pretended that Xia Mengyan and President Gu were engaged.”
Everyone looked at the Xia family with doubt. Their expressions were extremely ugly. Xia Cheng explained helplessly, “No! You’ve misunderstood. President Gu, this is just an old marriage contract. It might’ve been forged. Even if you really get someone to appraise it, with your current power and wealth, you can definitely skew things so that the results would work in your favor.”
Qiao Xi had a helpless expression. The Xia family was really stubborn. They were actually still quibbling at a time like this. However, the truth was right in front of them, so quibbling was useless.
She snorted. “Old Master Xia, you’re really eloquent. You’re right. The marriage contract might be fake, but…”
With that, she looked at Xia Mengyan coldly, then at Xia Cheng meaningfully. She snapped her fingers again. The big screen flashed, and a gorgeous living room appeared. A few people were sitting around the table.
Everyone took a closer look. Two of the people on the screen were Xia Cheng and Old Madam Xia.
Qiao Xi lazily leaned against the chair, and her tone suddenly became icy-cold. “You can say that the marriage contract is fake, but the video can’t be faked!”
Xia Cheng looked at the scene on the big screen in a daze. He felt as if he had fallen into an ice cave. He suddenly thought of the past that had been sealed for many years. This matter could not be leaked!
Old Madam Xia’s face was pale as she shouted in a panic, “Xia Cheng! Quick… Quick, stop them!”
However, Qiao Xi paid no attention to them at all. With a light wave of her hand, many bodyguards rushed over to stop the Xia family.
