Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
As Xia Mengyan spoke, tears suddenly fell from her eyes. She was extremely sad. On the surface, she was a gentle and kind cousin. Even though her cousin had done something wrong, she would not complain in the slightest. However, in her heart, she was constantly looking forward to Qiao Xi making a fool of herself and being hated by others. At that time, everyone would say that Qiao Xi was vulgar and not worthy of Gu Zheng at all. Only she, Xia Mengyan, was the most suitable person to be Mrs. Gu!
There were many women who liked Gu Zheng, and Qiao Xi had also seen many two-faced b*tches. She had to admit that Xia Mengyan’s acting was not bad. At the very least, she had deceived many guests, but she was still far inferior to her.
Qiao Xi abruptly raised her eyes and looked at Xia Mengyan with a sharp gaze. After a few seconds of silence, she suddenly asked, “Miss Xia, what major are you studying at university?”
Xia Mengyan did not understand why Qiao Xi suddenly asked this and replied with slight confusion, “Me? Finance and incense-making. What’s wrong?”
Qiao Xi had a mocking expression as she said with a smile, “I think you’re more suitable for acting. You’ll definitely be able to be an actress!”
At first, Xia Mengyan did not understand what Qiao Xi meant. She hesitated for a moment and was instantly stunned. Her gaze that was initially gentle suddenly burst with viciousness.
Qiao Xi! What right did she have to be so arrogant? How could she mock her like this in front of everyone?
“Xi Xi, I know you hate me, but I’m doing this all for you…” Xia Mengyan’s voice trembled as she suddenly choked. Tears welled up in her eyes as she looked aggrieved.
Qiao Xi looked at her with a faint smile and sneered. “Miss Xia, you keep saying that you’re doing this for me, but I’ll tell you very clearly that I never reprimanded the waiter from the beginning till the end, nor did I say I would punish him.
Everyone thought for a moment. It was true that they did not seem to have heard Qiao Xi say anything to the waiter.
“I’ve never criticized anyone, but the waiter and Miss Xia seem to have agreed to put on a show. You’re both accusing me of being unreasonable and committing crimes. But in fact, I’m a victim here.”
Only then did everyone realize that it was the waiter who rushed over and almost bumped into Mrs. Gu, causing President Gu’s clothes to be wet. The two of them did not criticize or punish him, but the waiter suddenly cried and started begging for mercy in horror. Speaking of which, his wine had spilled on President Gu. Even if he was begging for mercy, he should be begging President Gu! Why did he keep mentioning Mrs. Gu?
Moreover, after Xia Mengyan entered, she did not ask for the reason and just felt that Mrs. Gu was pushing that waiter to a dead end. She kept saying that it was for Mrs. Gu’s own good and accused her cousin without distinguishing between right and wrong. What was she up to?
Xia Mengyan lowered her head and shed tears aggrievedly. “Xi Xi, I’m sorry. When I entered, I saw him begging you for mercy. I thought that you wanted to punish him, so I pleaded on his behalf.”
Qiao Xi chuckled and looked up. “Song Shijing.”
Song Shijing understood what she meant immediately and said respectfully to Gu Zheng and Qiao Xi, “President, Young Madam, please wait a moment. I’ll go and find out who this waiter has been in contact with before this. I want to know who instructed him to frame Young Madam.”
Hearing this, Xia Mengyan shuddered. “Xi Xi, I was just a little anxious, so I said something wrong. But this waiter didn’t do it on purpose. What are you asking Song Shijing to investigate? Why are you making things worse? Don’t affect the banquet.”
“Didn’t do it on purpose?” Qiao Xi suddenly laughed out loud, causing her appearance to seem even more stunning.
She threw Gu Zheng’s suit to the floor, her voice filled with cold killing intent. “Then open your eyes wide and see if it’s intentional.”
Everyone took a closer look and instantly gasped. They were so scared that they took a few steps back. This suit had already been corroded by the wine. If the glass of wine had spilled on Mrs. Gu’s face just now, the consequences would have been unimaginable!
Ye Qingyuan quickly arrived with the first aid kit. He first helped Gu Zheng check his body, then checked his clothes that were covered in alcohol. “The alcohol is poisonous. This poison is highly corrosive. If it’s inhaled through the nose or mouth, it’ll immediately corrode the mucous membrane and the person will eventually suffocate.”
Everyone’s faces were filled with horror as they hurriedly covered their mouths and noses. They did not expect that someone would poison them at the banquet. Was this waiter’s target Mrs. Gu? If President Gu had not protected her, wouldn’t Mrs. Gu be either dead or injured?
At the thought of this, everyone looked at Xia Mengyan at the same time. “When she first entered, she accused Mrs. Gu of making things difficult for the waiter. Now that Mrs. Gu wants to investigate this matter thoroughly, she thinks that Mrs. Gu is blowing things up and it’ll affect the banquet. Who is she to say such things?”
