Xia Cheng walked into the house, turned on the lights, and advised softly, “Xi Xi, actually, I cant bear for you to suffer either.
Its just that for the sake of the Xia family, I can only do this.
I promise you that as long as you obediently stay in the Xia family, Ill try my best to satisfy you in the future.”
Qiao Xi grunted coldly.
“You want to imprison me Then which room in the villa do you plan on putting me in”
Before Xia Cheng could answer, Old Madam Xia cursed, “Little b*tch! You still want to stay in the villa Are you worthy Ah Cheng, theres an old house in the suburbs.
Let her stay there and get a few people to watch her.
Its best if you lock her with chains to prevent her from escaping.”
Xia Cheng frowned.
He, too, felt that letting Qiao Xi stay in the villa would be a disaster.
It was better to send her to the suburbs, so he nodded and said, “Xi Xi, the air in the suburbs is good.
Go there and recuperate.
Ill send servants to take care of you.”
Qiao Xi sneered in her heart.
She really hated Xia Chengs hypocritical appearance.
He clearly wanted to treat her as a lab rat to test the medicine, yet he was still pretending in front of her.
At this moment, Xia Ji had already rushed back with a length of hemp rope in his hand.
He entered without saying anything and wanted to tie Qiao Xi up.
The next second…
With a loud bang, Xia Ji felt a sharp pain in his abdomen.
His body flew up and he crashed into the wall outside the door.
The scene in front of him stunned everyone in the Xia family.
Xia Ji could no longer care about the pain in his body.
He looked up anxiously, wanting to see who had kicked him.
When he saw the man in front of him, his body suddenly stiffened.
“Didnt Old Master Xia promise me that he would send Mrs.
Gu home Where are you sending her now” A low and cold voice sounded with strong killing intent.
The smiles on the faces of the Xia family members froze, and the blood in their bodies seemed to have frozen.
His voice was so calm, but it made them break out in a cold sweat and tremble uncontrollably.
Song Shijing retracted his foot coldly and retreated behind Gu Zheng while glancing at the Xia family coldly.
Gu Zheng Hadnt he left
Xia Cheng and Old Madam Xia were terrified and could not help but take a few steps back.
They had seen Gu Zhengs car leave with their own eyes.
Why did he suddenly appear in the guest room
Gu Zheng stood in front of Qiao Xi, his deep eyes filled with killing intent.
The corners of his mouth curled into a cold smile.
“I remember Old Master Xia saying that he was paying respects to my mother-in-law today.
Xi Xi was tired from crying, so she decided to rest in the Xia family for a moment.
Is this what you mean by paying respects”
Xia Chengs expression froze.
When he met Gu Zhengs cold eyes, he was so scared that his entire body trembled.
The muscles on his face trembled as he stammered, “President… President Gu, you… Youve misunderstood.
We were just joking with Xi Xi.
“The environment in the suburbs is good.
Yunqiu has also stayed there before.
There are many of her belongings there, so I… want Xi Xi to stay in the suburbs for a period of time.
Its good for her health.”
Gu Zheng raised an eyebrow with a faint smile.
“Is that so”
“Yes! Yes!” Xia Cheng nodded crazily as cold sweat trickled down his forehead.
Qiao Xi pounced into Gu Zhengs arms.
The man hugged the little woman in his arms a little tighter.
He asked in a mocking tone, “Then please explain why Mr.
Xia wanted to tie Xi Xi up with a rope.”
Xia Ji sat against the wall, not expecting Gu Zheng to mention him.
He was so scared that his legs were trembling.
Xia Cheng explained while trembling, “Uhh… Xia Ji just wanted to…”
“Everyone knows that I dote on Mrs.
Gu and cant bear to see her being bullied.
Old Master Xia, if you dont give me a reasonable explanation today, then I can only take revenge for Xi Xi.”
Xia Chengs expression instantly changed.
They had all heard of Gu Zhengs methods.
He would definitely not let Xia Ji off easily.
Most importantly, they had detoxified Qiao Xis poison, but they had yet to obtain Qiao Xis blood.
She was everyones antidote, so they could not just watch her leave.
Xia Cheng thought for a long time.
His eyes shifted as he gritted his teeth and said, “President Gu, listen to me.
Sumei wanted to send Xi Xi to the suburbs.
Xia Ji only did it according to his moms wishes.
He wasnt willing to do it at all.”
Old Madam Xias name was Ai Sumei.
Qiao Xi smiled.
Xia Cheng was still so selfish.
He could push everyone else under the bus for his own sake.
Between Ai Sumei and Xia Ji, he chose Xia Ji without hesitation.
Old Madam Xia was stunned as she looked at Xia Cheng in disbelief.
