Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
For the sake of her reputation, Xia Mengyan would do anything. However, was this really useful?
Qiao Xi entered the live-stream. Xia Mengyan was wearing a very simple white dress, and her makeup was very pure. She smiled gently. She did not go straight to the point but played a piano piece for everyone. She sat on the chair, and her hair fell slightly as she played, giving others a feeling of peace.
Xia Mengyan was the daughter of the Xia family. She had a noble identity and was a famous perfumer. Even if she was not a celebrity, she had many fans.
After she finished playing a song, she established a perfect image in everyone’s hearts. Then, she got to the main topic and slowly said, “Regarding what has happened online recently, I’ll seriously explain it to everyone. Xia Tong and Gu Shan are indeed my cousins, but Xia Tong is a cousin from the Xia branch family while Gu Shan is my biological aunt’s daughter.”
After a pause, Xia Mengyan said helplessly, “Xi Xi doesn’t often return to the Xia family, and Xia Tong doesn’t keep in contact with us, so the two of them don’t know each other. I didn’t expect Xia Tong to use the Xia family’s power to suppress Xi Xi.
“After I found out about this, I immediately went to Xia Tong’s comment section to persuade her. At that time, I just wanted to protect Xi Xi. I was very angry that Xia Tong had wronged Xi Xi. I didn’t think too much about it and directly commented. I was also insulted by some fans, but even so, I didn’t regret it. Fortunately, the person those fans were scolding was me. If they knew that the person Xia Tong was talking about was Xi Xi, they would definitely have run to Xi Xi’s account and insulted her.
“The misunderstanding between me and Xi Xi has been resolved. We have a good relationship!”
Qiao Xi smiled. If she were a netizen, she would definitely be deceived by Xia Mengyan’s appearance.
At this moment, the netizens in the live-stream felt even sorrier for Xia Mengyan. The netizens’ impression of her increased. She would rather suffer insults to protect her younger cousin. Why would someone who doted on her younger cousin snatch her younger cousin’s fiance? What had happened before must have been a misunderstanding.
Xia Tong’s outcome was very tragic. She quickly announced her withdrawal from the entertainment industry and issued an apology.
Xia Mengyan reposted the apology statement and added: [Tong Tong, I’m very happy that you realized your mistake. Don’t blame me for exposing you previously. I’m doing this for your own good. No matter which one of you made a mistake, I’ll point it out. Only then will you improve.]
After that, Xia Tong publicly apologized to Qiao Xi. This way, Xia Mengyan would become a hero again. As for why Xia Tong apologized, it did not matter if it was because of the production team’s reprimand or the pressure from the Shen family and Gu Zheng.
At this moment, everyone agreed that Xia Tong did not want to apologize at first. It was only when Xia Mengyan came forward to persuade her that she realized her mistake and chose to apologize.
When the live broadcast was about to end, Xia Mengyan said with a smile, “Everyone, I still have something to do, so I’ll go offline first. Tomorrow is the family banquet. Everyone in the Xia family has to gather at the old residence, so I have to go back and help Grandpa and Grandma prepare.”
When they heard this, the fans asked curiously: [If everyone from the Xia family goes back, will Qiao Xi go too?]
Xia Mengyan nodded and said, “Of course. If there’s nothing important going on, everyone in the Xia family will go back.”
[Speaking of which, it’s all thanks to Mengyan that Xia Tong was able to apologize. Qiao Xi will probably thank Mengyan in person when she goes back tomorrow!]
After the live broadcast ended, Qiao Xi threw her phone on the sofa and sneered. It turned out that Xia Mengyan wanted to use public opinion to make her return to the Xia family!
The news that the Xia family was holding a family banquet spread throughout high society. Everyone was very curious about whether Qiao Xi would return. After all, the grudge between the Yin and Xia families back then was no secret.
Many curious people sent Qiao Xi WeChat messages. [Have you seen Xia Mengyan’s live broadcast? Will you go to the Xia family’s house?]
Gu Zheng said casually, “We can go, but not this time.”
As soon as he finished speaking, a trace of coldness flashed past his eyes. He suddenly tightened his grip on the cup, and his fingers turned slightly white. His voice was extremely cold. “The Xia family must have spent so much effort to lure you there to obtain greater benefits from you.”
“Could it be my blood?” Qiao Xi was slightly surprised. Previously, her eldest brother had reminded her that Meng Fan had spread the news that her blood could cure all poisons. The Xia family had also been looking for the descendant of the divine physician. It was very likely that the Xia family had set up a trap to lure her to the Xia family for her blood.
