Xia Cheng’s expression changed, and he hurriedly waved his hand to signal the bodyguards to leave. Then, he whispered something to Xia Ji, who was beside him. After about half a minute, he said kindly, “Xi Xi, what are you talking about?! Would we harm you? It’s all a joke.
“Didn’t you say that President Gu wasn’t coming? It’s good if he comes. Let him come in and have a meal with his family to liven things up. Everyone wants to see your husband too!”
Qiao Xi smiled coldly. As expected, Xia Cheng was still afraid of Gu Zheng. Actually, she was not sure if Gu Zheng was here at all, but with his character, he would at least send Song Shiyu or Song Shijing to protect her.
“I only want my mother’s belongings. Give them to me immediately!” Qiao Xi’s tone suddenly became fierce.
Xia Cheng frowned. If Gu Zheng really came, they could not continue to force Qiao Xi to drink. Otherwise, she would definitely notice that the wine was poisoned. At that time, it would be troublesome if Gu Zheng barged in.
He could only suppress his anger for the time being. “Butler, bring Yunqiu’s belongings over.”
A few minutes later, the butler walked over with a tattered box. “Master, I found it.”
Qiao Xi opened the box. The things inside were very messy. There was a photo album and a sketchbook. They were probably the designs Xia Cheng had mentioned. She flipped open the photo album, and her expression instantly changed.
Her mother’s photo had been scratched by someone with a knife. Every cut was very forceful. The person even wrote the words ‘b*tch’ and ‘damn you’ on her mother’s face with a red pen. It was obvious that the person hated her mother.
Qiao Xi’s pupils suddenly constricted as she raised her eyes to look at Old Madam Xia. Her indifferent eyes were filled with ruthlessness, and her entire body emitted dense killing intent. Old Madam Xia looked at her gaze and was terrified to the point her entire body trembled. She took a few steps back in horror and said while trembling, “Why are you glaring at me? I didn’t do it.”
Qiao Xi stood up and slowly walked toward her, her icy-cold eyes staring fixedly at her.
Song Shiyu, who was outside the door, could not help but gulp. He had to admit that Young Madam was really scary when she was angry! No wonder even the president did not dare to provoke her.
Gu Zheng’s expression was similarly gloomy. He rarely saw Qiao Xi so angry. Since the Xia family had the guts to anger her, they had to bear the consequences.
At this moment, Old Madam Xia took a few steps back and bumped into the chair behind her. She could not retreat anymore and shouted in horror, “Qiao Xi! Go away! I already said that it has nothing to do with me!”
“I didn’t say a word just now, yet you’re busy explaining yourself. Is it because you’re guilty?” Qiao Xi spoke coldly like a messenger from hell, making one tremble with fear.
Old Madam Xia could not retort. She stood there trembling and looked at the others for help.
“Xi Xi, stop fooling around.” Xia Mengyan hurriedly went forward to stop her and advised softly, “Actually, when we got these designs and photo albums, they were already destroyed. We were afraid that you would be sad, so we didn’t tell you. I was also very sad, but I couldn’t salvage the things. I could only keep them and give them to you. How could you misunderstand us?”
Qiao Xi paid no attention to Xia Mengyan at all. Her eyes were still staring at Old Madam Xia as if she would tear her into pieces in the next second.
Old Madam Xia was so scared that she broke out in a cold sweat. She stammered as she retorted, “That’s right! What right do you have to malign me? These things were already destroyed when they were sent here. Xia Yunqiu must have done something wrong outside and offended someone. That’s why this happened after she died. She can only blame herself for this!
“Ah!” As soon as Old Madam Xia finished speaking, she suddenly screamed. Qiao Xi forcefully broke her wrist, and a cracking sound was heard. An intense bout of pain swept through her entire body.
Qiao Xi’s gaze was gloomy and cold. “I’ll ask again. Did you destroy my mother’s belongings?”
Xia Mengyan was also frightened by the angry Qiao Xi and hurriedly tried to persuade her. “Xi Xi, let go! This wasn’t Grandma’s doing at all. Even if you have doubts, you should wait until the matter is investigated clearly. How can you hurt your elders without distinguishing right from wrong?”
Qiao Xi could not be bothered with Xia Mengyan and looked at Old Madam Xia with a sharp gaze. Her entire body emitted strong killing intent. “I’ll give you another chance. Answer me!”
At this moment, Old Madam Xia had already forgotten the pain in her wrist. She looked into Qiao Xi’s eyes as intense fear spread from the bottom of her heart. From Qiao Xi’s red eyes, she seemed to have seen a fiery hell. She could even hear miserable cries.
