Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Qiao Xi had long known that the Xia family still had her mother’s belongings, but she did not know what they were. She did not expect that there would actually be some designs.
Qiao Corporation relied on fashion design to make a fortune, but she had never heard that her mother knew how to design as well. Moreover, her mother stopped interacting with the Xia family when she was young. Why would the Xia family have her old designs?
“Old Master Xia, you’re indeed very smart. You’re using my mother’s belongings to force me to go back.” Qiao Xi’s eyes narrowed slightly, and her voice gradually turned cold.
Xia Cheng smiled proudly. “How can I force you? You’re a child of the Xia family. Of course, we all hope that you can come back. Come quickly. Everyone is waiting for you!”
“Alright.” Qiao Xi’s eyes were filled with coldness as she hung up.
On the other hand, the smile on Xia Cheng’s face suddenly vanished, and his gaze gradually became vicious. “Bastard! When she arrives at the Xia family, I’ll see how arrogant she can be.”
Xia Mengyan pretended to be worried. “Grandpa, are we really going to let Xi Xi drink that? But—”
“Mengyan!” Xia Yunlou immediately tried to persuade her. “You’re just too kind. Since Qiao Xi can’t be used by us, then let her be poisoned like us. At that time, for the sake of protecting her life, she’ll definitely look for the antidote. That way, we’ll be able to detoxify the poison in our bodies as well.
“You’re the future heir of the Xia family. You have to be ruthless when you have to be. She’s just an outsider. Can she compare to the lives of our entire Xia family?”
Xia Mengyan nodded, a sinister look in her eyes.
At this moment, Xia Ji’s wife subconsciously looked up at Xia Yunlou. Didn’t they say that Qiao Xi was Xia Yunlou’s biological daughter? Why was she so vicious as to harm her own daughter?
Seeing Madam Xia staring at her, Xia Yunlou glared and asked coldly, “Why are you looking at me?”
Seeing this, Xia Ji did not protect his wife but reprimanded her. “If it weren’t for the fact that you’re Mengyan’s mother, do you think you would have the right to attend the family banquet? Since I asked you to come, you’d better be obedient and not say anything you shouldn’t. Otherwise, you’ll suffer! Hurry up and apologize to Yunlou!”
Madam Xia lowered her head and bit her lip without saying anything.
Xia Yunlou’s face was filled with disdain. “Forget it, I don’t want to bicker with her either. Look at her useless appearance. I feel annoyed just looking at her. If she hadn’t given birth to Mengyan, she would have been chased out long ago.”
Madam Xia’s expression turned even uglier. She crossed her fingers and looked uneasy.
Xia Mengyan, who was at the side, saw her mother being berated but did not say anything. There was not a trace of heartache in her eyes as if she was just a stranger.
At this moment, Qiao Xi had already left Longwan Residential and was driving to the Xia family’s villa.
Song Shiyu shouted anxiously, “President! Did you hear that? Those bastards from the Xia family are threatening Young Madam. Are you sure you want Young Madam to deal with those people alone? They must be up to no good! Hurry up and protect Young Madam! If you don’t want to go, let me go. With me around, they definitely won’t dare to bully Young Madam!”
Gu Zheng and Song Shijing looked up at the same time and glanced at him meaningfully. It seemed that only a fool like Song Shiyu did not understand that no one could threaten Qiao Xi. She was going because she wanted to. Moreover, it was only because Xia Cheng had agreed to return Xia Yunqiu’s belongings that she was willing to go. Since she knew that the Xia family had ill intentions, it meant that she had already come up with a countermeasure to ensure her safe return.
Song Shijing’s first impression of Qiao Xi was that she was a weak woman. Later on, he realized that Young Madam’s methods were on par with the president’s. She would never be afraid of the Xia family! Moreover, she was not a weakling who needed protection. Song Shiyu would only cause trouble if he went.
After a moment of silence, Gu Zheng smiled. “How can I feel at ease letting my cute and kind Mrs. Gu go alone? I’ll go myself.”
Song Shiyu and Song Shijing looked at each other in disdain. Ever since the appearance of Young Madam, the president had changed. He was showing off his love all the time.
At eight in the evening.
Qiao Xi had just arrived at the Xia family’s residence. The banquet was supposed to start at seven, and everyone had already been sitting in their seats for an hour. At this moment, all of their expressions were gloomy. Xia Yunlou was even more furious, and the cup in her hand was almost crushed.
Qiao Xi walked in and waved at everyone with a smile. “Everyone’s here! Why aren’t you eating yet?”
