Chapter 145: Means of Retaliation (3)
In the photo, Xing Yichen was wearing the same clothes as the ones he left his villa in. He was standing in front of Qiao Moyu’s door, and the timeline showed that he waited there for 20 minutes, even though the other party did not open the door!
Qiao Ruohuan threw the newspaper on the table, her normal gentle aura dispersing: “Brother Yichen, didn’t you say that you were going to meet a customer yesterday? Is Qiao Moyu your customer? Ha, how came I didn’t know that you suddenly had business dealings with her?!”
Xing Yichen saw the screenshot this morning and knew that he had been played by Ye Peicheng. Just as he was feeling vexed about the matter, he received a call from his father asking if he had been fighting with the Qiao Family at this critical juncture, causing him to be unhappy.
At this moment, hearing Qiao Ruohuan’s biting sarcasm, his eyes cooled: “Where I go is not a matter that you have the power to interfere with!”
When had Xing Yichen ever said such fierce words to Qiao Ruohuan? Her face changed, and her chest surged with anger: “Did you become attracted to that cheap face? Ha, in the past, didn’t you say that if she stripped in front of you, you would not be willing to look at her? Finally. she stopped caring for you, and now you think she’s great? Waiting at someone’s door like that, even I feel ashamed!”
After Xing Yichen heard her words, his eyes turned turbulent. His entire person seemed to be an active volcano on the verge of exploding. Every sentence that Qiao Ruohuan spoke rubbed at his wounds, reminding him of what he saw yesterday. Reminding him of Ye Peicheng and Qiao Moyu kissing, and of Qiao Moyu nestled in Ye Peichen’s arms.
That originally should have been his position, yet it was taken away by another man!
“Qiao Ruohuan, my patience is limited. Go scram!” Xing Yichen hadn’t even revealed the case of Qiao Ruohuan’s trickery and replacement action yet, since his old man had told him over the phone to retain reason.
Although the Xing Group is much richer than the Qiao’s, the cooperation would still provide them with many benefits. The Qiao’s have patented some of the best technology out there, so the Xing Group’s best choice is still them.
Not only that, the early stages of the cooperation have already started. If they rush to terminate it, then the Xing Group’s stock would fall sharply.
His hands were tightly fisted together. Because of that, he was able to restrain himself from making any irrational movements.
However, in the past, Xing Yichen really had spoiled Qiao Ruohuan a lot. Once she heard him say “scram”, she jumped to her feet. “Xing Yichen, are you going to act like this toward me? At that time I was only 13 years old, yet I risked my life to save you from that fire. Are you going to act like this toward your life-saving benefactor?”
If she didn’t bring up that incident, then it would have been just fine. However, once she brought that up, the entire aura around Xing Yichen changed.
The large villa was scarily quiet. Xing Yichen’s eyes were filled with hate as he walked step by step to Qiao Ruohuan.
Qiao Ruohuan was scared by his aura, and couldn’t help retreating.
“Qiao Ruohuan, before you turned 14 years old, you had never even left your village. How would you be able to save me?” Xing Yichen’s voice was very light, but it was like ice stabbing into Qiao Ruohuan’s heart.
She faced his cold gaze, and her heart trembled: “Oh, haven’t I said so before? When I was 13 years old, I had followed a craftsman out of the village. It’s just that he isn’t there anymore, so there are no witnesses. If you don’t me, then I can’t do anything about it either!”
“Really?” Xing Yichen raised Qiao Ruohuan’s chin: “Ruohuan, sometimes I really have to admire you acting ability! I plan to raise you up to become a Film Empress, what do you think?”
Qiao Ruohuan felt that Xing Yichen was much more scarier than before, and that she could not decipher the true meaning of his words.
Qiao Ruohuan moved her lips. With a probing tone, she asked: “Brother Yichen, what do you mean?”
“Nothing.” Xing Yichen stared at Qiao Ruohuan and put on a smile that wasn’t quite a smile: “I just want to ask you, if one person steals the happiness of another, what should be done in return?”
