When Xia Yunlou heard this, she could not help but roar, “You still have the cheek to say that?! It’s all because of you! What did I tell you during the day? The banquet starts at seven, but you only rushed over at eight. Aren’t you embarrassed to have so many elders wait for you on an empty stomach?”
Qiao Xi glanced at her and said casually, “I’m not the one who wants to come. Aren’t you the one who invited me? If you’re unwilling to wait for an hour, then it just shows that you’re not sincere!”
Xia Yunlou was angered to the point her face flushed red. She could lose ten years of her life by talking to Qiao Xi.
At this moment, Song Shiyu, who was hiding outside the door, heard this and could not help but sigh in his heart. Young Madam was still so calm when facing this group of covetous people from the Xia family. There seemed to be no need for them to protect her anymore.
Gu Zheng was smiling meaningfully at the side. When Qiao Xi entered, they had already arrived at the entrance of the Xia family’s villa, but they were not in a rush to enter. Instead, they stood at the door and listened to the sounds coming from the corner of the wall.
Qiao Xi’s appearance caused everyone present to be dissatisfied. Xia Mengyan immediately stood up and patiently reminded her, “Xi Xi, you’re a junior. Why aren’t you greeting the elders when you see them?”
Xia Yunlou roared, “Rude wild girl! How embarrassing!”
“Since you think I’m embarrassing, I’d better go! In any case, I didn’t want to come in the first place. My husband is going to bring me out for a feast when I get home!” As she spoke, Qiao Xi walked out the door.
Xia Cheng was instantly anxious. He glared at Xia Yunlou and hurriedly said kindly, “Xi Xi! Don’t be angry! Your mother is a little impatient, but she’s doing this for your own good. Don’t bicker with her and quickly take a seat!”
“Since Old Master Xia said so, then I’ll reluctantly stay,” Qiao Xi said with a smile as she walked straight to the empty seat and sat down.
At this moment, everyone’s gazes were on her like a pack of hungry wolves. Xia Yunlou calmed down and said in a gentler tone, “Xi Xi, didn’t President Gu come with you?”
Qiao Xi replied without the slightest hesitation, “This is the Xia family’s banquet. Why would he come here? Moreover, he’s very busy and doesn’t have time to attend such a boring banquet.”

Xia Yunlou instantly choked. Every word Qiao Xi said could anger her to the point her blood pressure rose. However, since Gu Zheng was not here, they could rest assured and deal with Qiao Xi.
“Xi Xi, during the matter of the marriage contract previously, why didn’t you speak up for Mengyan? She was scolded by netizens for so many days and felt terrible. Can you bear to see your cousin suffer?” Xia Yunlou criticized.
At this moment, a servant went forward and poured a cup of tea for Qiao Xi. Qiao Xi was caught off guard and picked up the teacup to finish it in one gulp. Everyone revealed sinister smiles when they saw her drink the tea.
Old Madam Xia also reprimanded, “Yes! Mengyan is your sister, but you watched her suffer. You’re too heartless!”
Qiao Xi was angered to the point of laughing. It seemed that the Xia family had spent a lot of money to settle this matter, so they wanted her to pay for it.
“Oh!” Qiao Xi replied indifferently.
Seeing that Qiao Xi was so arrogant, Old Madam Xia felt as though her attacks were ineffective. She could not take it anymore and continued, “It’s just a small misunderstanding between you cousins. Why did you have to make things worse? President Gu is young and promising. It’s understandable that Mengyan likes him. It’s normal for an outstanding man like President Gu to have a few women by his side. He can’t possibly spend the rest of his life with you alone. Since there’ll be women fighting for your favor sooner or later, why don’t you give this opportunity to Mengyan? Good things shouldn’t be left to outsiders!”

Qiao Xi replied without raising her head, “Tsk tsk, Old Madam Xia, you’re surely worthy of being a mistress. You make ruining someone else’s marriage sound so refreshing and refined. Your Xia family’s education philosophy is really destructive!”
Being a mistress was a stain on Old Madam Xia’s life. These words were like a slap to her face in public, making her unable to raise her head.
“Although Gu Zheng and I didn’t hold a wedding, we got our marriage certificate a long time ago. We’re legally married. Xia Mengyan fell for a married man and even faked the marriage contract in a vain attempt to use me to climb up the social ladder. As the first wife, do I have to cooperate with all of you? Do you still have any shame?”
As soon as these words were spoken, the huge villa fell silent. Everyone’s faces were ashen, and they only felt their cheeks burn with pain. They all berated angrily, “Qiao Xi!”
Xia Cheng was still relatively calm, but he was unable to conceal the flames of rage in his eyes. He glared fiercely at Qiao Xi. “Shut up!”
