Chapter 694: Hit Chu Lui
He was doing his best to learn and to draw. He wanted to grow up as fast as possible so that he could earn enough money to leave the welfare home and take care of his sister.
Guo’er took out a sweet from her pocket and placed it in Lin Qing’s hand.
“Mei Mei gives this to you, Brother.”
“Okay.” Lin Qing smiled, but he secretly placed the sweet back into his own pocket to save it for his sister later.
Xia Ruoxin held Rainy’s hand. Whenever it reached this time, she would always feel a pang in her heart.
Rainy raised her head and leaned her small body against her mother.
“Mommy, will you leave Rainy?”
“Why would I?” Xia Ruoxin squatted down and pinched Rainy’s face while smiling. “Mommy will never leave Rainy.”
Rainy extended her hand and hugged her mother’s neck, burying her face into her mother’s embrace.
Just that there were too many tragedies and departures in life. One would never know which day one would leave, forever.
There was no meeting forever… but goodbye forever.
“I asked you to leave Brother Lui. Do you hear me? Are you deaf?”
Xia Yixuan opened the door and barged in like a lunatic. Her mouth did not stop yapping the moment she came in.Read more chapter on vipnovel.com
Xia Ruoxin held a cup in her hand and looked lightly at the Xia Yixuan who kept going on and on. She did not know that the Xia Yixuan, who had always been on a high pedestal, would end up like a lunatic one day because of her.
Why must she leave?
She liked her job; that was all.
“Xia Ruoxin, you are too shameless.” After Xia Yixuan saw that Xia Ruoxin did not reply, she cursed and scolded her with even more cruel words. “You are promiscuous. Only God knows how many guys you have slept with. Now, you still dare to stay beside Brother Lui? If I were you, I would have committed suicide a long time ago.”
Sure… Xia Ruoxin caressed the side of her cup gently. She was not angry or frustrated; she was calm. It was not the first time she had heard such scolding. It was not because she was used to it, but it was because she would not end her life due to things that she had never done.
She stood up, walked past Xia Yixuan, and did not give a single response. No matter how ugly the words got, she took them as nothing.
“Xia Ruoxin, I’ll beat you to death, you whore.” Xia Yixuan had already lost her senses. After scolding for so long, it was as if her punch landed on marshmallows. Other people could vent their anger by scolding, but when she did it, it was just putting herself in a difficult position.
Without thinking, she just flung her hand out.
It was as if the air had stopped for two seconds.
It was as if time had also stopped for two seconds.
Xia Yixuan’s hand was still in mid-air, and she did not retract it.
“Lui… Brother Lui…”
She could not believe her eyes, and her mouth was agape. At that time, Xia Ruoxin’s hand was still on the doorknob. She had opened the door, and Chu Lui came in right at that time. With a freak combination of factors, Xia Yixuan’s hand landed accidentally on his face.
Chu Lui’s face was never hit before, especially by a woman.
At this point, only ‘petrifying’ could describe his face. His entire face was as dark as thunder as if he had taken in poison; his distinct facial features were even creepier than before.
Suddenly, his lips that were pressed tightly together opened.
“Xia Yixuan!” He spat out every single word as cold as ice.
“You better. Get out. NOW!”
He said every single word slowly and lightly, but it still made Xia Yixuan shudder before running out of the room as if her life depended on it. She knew it was not a good thing to hit Chu Lui’s face. She was not clueless about Chu Lui’s personality as she had witnessed a woman being thrown into the water by Chu Lui before she could even move, for just having the intention to slap his face.
It was not that because Chu Lui did not hit women, he wouldn’t send them to their death. Even though it was a civilized society, it was not impossible to silently take away someone’s life. It was just that no one had angered him till he had to kill somebody.
Dragons had reverse scales, and so did humans.
Xia Ruoxin kept her lips tightly shut and could not even say a single word of apology.
She turned around and walked into the elevator. Her complicated gaze was reflected in the elevator glass.
She leaned back and felt a rush of coldness from her back.
Once Xia Mingzheng heard the door, he hurriedly stood up and opened the door. Lately, he was quite pleased as the daughter that had always caused him headaches had calmed down and stopped giving him trouble.
Currently, he was still very worried about that daughter of his. If she could give him one day of peace, he would have to thank the gods and would not age as fast.
The door opened, and the person standing outside stunned him. He could not react in time.
“Ah Lui, you’re here.” He smiled awkwardly.
He could be counted as his son-in-law. If there were not so many accidents, Chu Lui was still his son-in-law. The two families were pretty close in the past; when Yixuan was not around, the Chu family would still come over during festivals to appease the old man who lost his daughter. Now that Yixuan had come back, he had not returned anymore.
Sometimes, he would think that it would be good if Yixuan were dead. That way, the two families would still be close, he would not be in such a dilemma, and Yijun would not be crazy up till now.
“Hello, Uncle Xia.” Chu Lui greeted him simply without much enthusiasm.
Only then did Xia Mingzheng recover his senses and hurriedly point towards the couch at the side. “Come, come, sit.” He hurried the helper to serve tea. However, when the tea was placed on the table, Chu Lui did not even touch it.
“Ah Lui, what are you doing?” Xia Mingzheng did not understand why on earth Chu Lui came over. Even though the two families had not fallen over on the surface, he knew that it was just because of the past few decades of relations.
If Yixuan was not so stubborn at the start, so many things would not have happened. Hence, when Xia Mingzheng was in front of his old friend, he was always guilty. What he did not know was that some things, they would have never predicted.
From Chu Lui marrying Xia Ruoxin, he stood at the side and watched coldly, until he married Li Manni and caused her to poison Chu Lui in secret. If there was one person who had to be responsible for all of it—if Xia Mingzheng was not the first, he would be the second.
