Old Madam Xia slammed the table. That little b*tch Qiao Xi had sent them to this remote place with just a few words. No matter what, she was an elder. So what if she had made a mistake? As a junior, she should be tolerant and magnanimous.
At this moment, Xia Yunlou walked in. Xia Mengyan hurriedly stood up and said aggrievedly, “Aunt, you’re here. I haven’t been eating or sleeping well these past few days. When can I go back?!”
Xia Yunlou was even angrier. She actually let Qiao Xi run back to Longwan Residential. It would not be easy to catch her again. She was already furious, but she did not expect her father to chase her to the old house in the suburbs to let her calm down for a while.
She replied with a gloomy expression, “Mengyan, if you can’t endure it, it’ll ruin your grand plan. The humiliation before you is only temporary. Sooner or later, we’ll make Qiao Xi regret everything she’s done!”
Xia Mengyan nodded, her eyes filled with resentment.
Suddenly, Xia Yunlou’s phone rang. When the call connected, a woman’s voice came from the other end. “Yunlou, why haven’t you come out to meet us recently?”
The woman who called was a noblewoman of high society. Xia Yunlou and she were just acquaintances. Occasionally, they would gather for afternoon tea. Actually, they only met for their own benefit. They had not seen each other for a long time. Now that this woman suddenly called, she must be up to no good.
Xia Yunlou frowned and said impatiently, “I’ve been very busy recently and don’t have time.”[email protected]@@@[email protected]@@@@=======
“I heard that your biological daughter has been found. Her name is Qiao Xi, right? How’s your relationship?”
When she heard the woman mention Qiao Xi, Xia Yunlou frowned. Before she could speak, the woman said sarcastically, “Your daughter is really famous now. She actually did such a thing. In my opinion, you should cut ties with her as soon as possible to avoid being implicated by her.”
Although Xia Yunlou did not like Qiao Xi, she had to admit that Qiao Xi was her daughter. Moreover, for the sake of Xia Yunqiu’s belongings and Gu Zheng’s power, the Xia family would absolutely not cut ties with Qiao Xi.
Xia Yunlou revealed an unhappy expression. Was this woman crazy? She clearly knew that her relationship with Qiao Xi was not good, yet she still said sarcastic words.
“Li City University is holding a calligraphy competition today. Your daughter stole the work of the calligraphy master, Mr. Yi Cang, to participate in the competition and was discovered. Now, half of Li City knows that your daughter cheated. The Xia family has also lost their reputation. Xia Yunlou, how did you give birth to such an immoral daughter?”
Xia Yunlou widened her eyes. Qiao Xi actually cheated in Li City University’s competition? Did she have no shame?
Hearing the woman’s ridicule, Xia Yunlou looked annoyed and hung up unhappily. Then, she clicked on the live-stream of Li City University’s official website. As soon as she joined the broadcast, she saw everyone discussing the scandal of Qiao Xi cheating.
Xia Yunlou’s face alternated between red and white. It burned, but at the same time, a trace of excitement surged in her heart.
If Qiao Xi cheated, they could threaten her to let them go and get her to sign Xia Yunqiu’s will. Wouldn’t that be killing two birds with one stone?
After a moment of silence, Xia Yunlou hurriedly picked up her phone and called Xia Cheng.
At Li City University’s art hall.
Qiao Xi was leaning against the chair and resting with an indifferent expression. Shang Jing, who was on the stage, said indignantly, “Teacher Qiao Xi, what else do you have to say about the matter of you cheating?!”
Under the gazes of everyone, Qiao Xi slowly opened her eyes. Her icy-cold gaze landed on Shang Jing as she casually said, “Mr. Shang, are you sure I stole Mr. Yi’s work?”
Shang Jing raised his head arrogantly. “Who else could it be?”
Qiao Xi slowly stood up and said word by word in front of everyone, “Everyone has witnessed Mr. Yi’s ability. By saying that my work was stolen from Mr. Yi, isn’t this equivalent to humiliating Mr. Yi?”
Yi Cang instantly choked, and he did not understand what Qiao Xi meant for a moment. Then, he heard Qiao Xi slowly say, “I really don’t know much about calligraphy. It’s just that no one from Class 3 was participating, so I signed up. It’s just a formality, so the work I submitted is only at the beginner’s level. I already despise it so much, yet you’re saying that it’s Mr. Yi’s work?”
Shang Jing was instantly stunned as he looked at Qiao Xi in disbelief.
Qiao Xi shook her head helplessly. “I look down on this work, but Mr. Shang insists that this is Mr. Yi Cang’s work. Aren’t you afraid that he’ll be angry if you humiliate him like this?”
