Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Qiao Xi ignored Xia Cheng and lowered her head to look at the disheveled Butler Liu. She chuckled and said, “Butler Liu, who gave you the illusion that I’m easy to bully?”
Butler Liu was in so much pain that he could not say anything. He could only whimper and glare at her fiercely. This was the Xia family’s residence. How could she dare to attack him? Moreover, she would go to jail if she deliberately hurt someone. She would not want to get into a lawsuit, right?!
A miserable scream sounded along with the sound of bones breaking. Qiao Xi withdrew her foot as if she had stepped on disgusting trash.
She lowered her eyes to look at Butler Liu, who had collapsed on the floor. She slowly bent down and whispered in his ear, “Don’t think that just because you’re taking the blame for Old Madam Xia and Xia Yunlou that this matter is over. I’ll deal with you first. Then, I’ll slowly deal with the two of them!
“Even if I hurt you, no one in the Xia family will stand up to help you! You destroyed my mother’s belongings. As her daughter, I’m disheartened over it. It’s not a big deal if I accidentally step on you, right? Moreover, I can tell that your injuries are very light. You don’t have to trouble the police with such a small matter, right?”
“You…” Butler Liu gritted his teeth, his gaze gradually filling with fear.
Qiao Xi smiled coldly. “You can indeed get a sum of compensation from me after calling the police, but as the butler, you destroyed Eldest Miss’ belongings. Who will dare to hire you in the future? You can only rely on the compensation you received and retire.”
Butler Liu’s entire body trembled violently. At this moment, he realized that Qiao Xi was the one who was the most difficult to deal with.
Qiao Xi stood up and looked at the things in the box. Those things had all been destroyed by others and could no longer be repaired.
Xia Cheng’s expression was gloomy. Now that the inheritance had been handed to Qiao Xi and she had beaten up the butler, it was time for her to drink that glass of wine. Hence, he advised gently, “Xi Xi, Butler Liu was the one who destroyed Yunqiu’s inheritance. I’ll chase him out of the Xia family. I absolutely won’t allow such a person to continue staying in the Xia family.”
Originally, Qiao Xi thought that no matter what, her mother was Xia Cheng’s daughter. He would not just watch as her belongings were destroyed. After hearing Xia Cheng’s words, she was sure that Xia Cheng must have known about this long ago.
Qiao Xi did not say anything and directly raised the wine glass to her lips. She drank it in one gulp in front of everyone. Everyone was instantly excited. Qiao Xi had been poisoned, so how could they be afraid that she would not obediently listen to them?
Xia Cheng gestured for the servants to send Butler Liu to the hospital, then looked at Qiao Xi affectionately. “Xi Xi, I owe you and your mother. Actually, I missed you very much. Your mother has passed away, so you have to be filial in her place. You should stay in the Xia family’s residence to accompany me for a few more days.”
Qiao Xi put down the empty wine glass and was slightly troubled. “But I promised Ah Zheng that I would go home. He’s still waiting for me outside!”
Xia Cheng’s expression changed as he continued gently, “It’s still early. After eating with us, go upstairs and rest, okay?”
Everyone knew that this poison would make Qiao Xi faint. If she was still safe and sound after half an hour, it meant that she was not poisoned. However, how was this possible? They had seen Qiao Xi drink that glass of wine with their own eyes.
As for Gu Zheng, Xia Cheng had other ways to deal with him.
Qiao Xi looked at Xia Cheng’s scheming gaze and smiled lightly. “Alright! I’ll go upstairs now.”
Xia Cheng did not expect that Qiao Xi, who was still furious just now, would be so obedient at this moment. Things were going even smoother than he had expected. After that, everyone sat down to eat. Everyone at the dining table had ulterior motives. Xia Cheng could not help but size up Qiao Xi. She was still in a very normal state.
“Mengyan, I think Xi Xi is tired. Bring her upstairs to rest.”
Everyone from the Xia family raised their eyes to look at Qiao Xi. Their proud gazes were no longer concealed. At this moment, she was already a lamb waiting to be slaughtered.
Qiao Xi nodded, stood up, and followed Xia Mengyan upstairs. Xia Mengyan brought her to the guest room. Qiao Xi entered and smiled. “Miss Xia, why are you guys in such a rush to keep me in the Xia family?”
Xia Mengyan’s expression changed as she hurriedly explained, “Xi Xi, you’re thinking too much. Grandpa thinks that you’re too tired, so he asked you to go upstairs and rest for a while. Don’t misunderstand us.”
“I know that the Xia family has already blocked the signal. I can’t contact anyone, but don’t forget that if I can’t walk out of the Xia family safe and sound in half an hour, Gu Zheng will rush in with his men.”
