Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Xia Cheng knew clearly in his heart that even if Gu Zheng liked Mengyan and was not in the mood to care about Qiao Xi, there was still the Yin family. Yin Lianxin would definitely come looking for Qiao Xi.
At this moment, his expression was gloomy. He recalled the years when he was with Yin Lianxin. When he married into the Yin family, he had to listen to the Yin family’s arrangements for everything. Although the Xia family was prosperous, he did not feel grateful to the Yin family. He only felt resentment. Due to the Yin family’s power, he would not go against them if they came to ask for Qiao Xi. He had to find an excuse to deal with them.
Old Madam Xia’s eyes were filled with resentment as she said, “There are many reasons. Why don’t we say that Qiao Xi is already dead? Let’s set a fire and say that Qiao Xi was burned to death. That way, we can use the excuse that she was already burned to ashes. We’ll just give some ashes to them.”
Xia Cheng nodded. “This idea is feasible, but we can’t act rashly now. We have to wait until President Gu really falls for Mengyan and completely forgets about Qiao Xi. Only then will President Gu not blame us.”
Old Madam Xia was very confident in her granddaughter. Mengyan had been educated since she was young and learned the four arts. She had a gentle and generous character. Many rich young masters came to ask for her hand in marriage, but they were all refused. She believed that it would not be long before Mengyan could firmly grasp Gu Zheng’s heart.
If Gu Zheng liked Qiao Xi’s character, they would get Mengyan to imitate Qiao Xi’s every move, just like how she imitated Yin Lianxin back then. Even if she was a substitute, she would still be a successful one. After all, she had already become the old madam of the Xia family.
Qiao Xi slowly stood up and leisurely leaned against the door to listen to their conversation.
Old Madam Xia said proudly, “Mengyan will marry Gu Zheng sooner or later. At that time, when we spread the news that Qiao Xi was burned to death and she completely falls into our hands, she’ll still be at our mercy!”
Xia Cheng’s expression changed. Actually, he married Yin Lianxin not only for the sake of the Yin family’s power but because he really liked Yin Lianxin. However, marrying into the Yin family was a humiliation to him, so he chose a woman who looked very similar to Yin Lianxin. However, he felt that the woman in front of him was a little unfamiliar now.
At this moment, Old Madam Xia did not notice Xia Cheng’s displeasure and continued to say arrogantly, “Yin Lianxin has always suppressed me. Now that her granddaughter has fallen into my hands, I must vent all my resentment from all these years on her!”
As soon as she finished speaking, the door of the guest room was suddenly pushed open from the inside. Everyone was shocked and hurriedly took a few steps back.

“What do you want to do to me, Old Madam Xia? Tell me in detail.” A cold female voice came from inside the house, scaring Old Madam Xia so much that her body suddenly froze. Her already ferocious face became even more terrifying, like an old witch in a movie.
Qiao Xi crossed her arms and appeared in front of everyone. She raised her eyebrows and asked, “You said you want to vent all your resentment on me? Tsk tsk, you’re too heartless!”
Old Madam Xia did not expect that Qiao Xi had already woken up, nor did she expect that she would actually hear their conversation. As she looked at Qiao Xi’s arrogant expression, she thought of Yin Lianxin. As long as Yin Lianxin appeared, she would be the third party who would be despised by everyone. She would never be able to raise her head in front of Yin Lianxin, and the resentment in her heart surged like a tide.
“Yes! I want you to suffer! I want to torture you! So what? Do you think you can still escape from the Xia family?” Old Madam Xia looked at her with resentment.
“Oh.” Qiao Xi had an indifferent expression as she turned around and returned to the guest room. She leisurely leaned against the sofa with her legs crossed and looked at Xia Cheng indifferently.
Xia Cheng recovered from his shock, and his eyes were filled with a look of pleasant surprise. Not only was Qiao Xi awake, but the lights in the room were not switched on. She actually did not lose her eyesight. This meant that the medicine had taken effect. In other words, Qiao Xi’s blood had become their antidote.

Xia Ji immediately reacted and hurriedly ran downstairs. He instructed everyone to guard the Xia family’s villa and not let anyone enter. They had to watch Qiao Xi closely.
At this moment, Qiao Xi’s eyes were still indifferent without the slightest fear. Since the Xia family dared to set up a trap to harm her, she would absolutely make the Xia family pay the price.
Now, Xia Cheng should be sure that his entire family could be saved. How disappointed would he be to realize that all of this was just his imagination?
Old Madam Xia could not take it anymore and shouted with a ferocious expression, “Tie this little b*tch up! Don’t let her escape!”
Xia Cheng was still relatively calm. He instructed, “Yunlou, tell Mengyan to get ready. Drive Mengyan to Longwan Residential later.”
