“Qianqian, how did you get hurt? How did you get a concussion out of nowhere?”
Zhong Qianqian’s face darkened. “It’s all Zhong Nuannuan’s fault! When she was released from prison that day, Chi Yang had come to our house. Aunty Zhao and my mom were busying themselves while she was at one side acting like a little miss. So, my mom asked me to bring a glass of water for Chi Yang. In the end, Zhong Nuannuan said that I was seducing Chi Yang. When I retorted, she fought with me.
My dad protects her a lot because she had a hard life. When she made a fuss at that time, my dad had scolded me. You know that I don’t like to fight. A lady shouldn’t be doing things like this. But she had kept scolding me and I felt wronged. While being blinded by sadness, I slammed my head into the wall.”
Xue Miqi’s eyes were about to roll out of her skull. Her voice raised a few octaves. “You slammed your head against the wall?”
“Shh, lower your voice. It’s embarrassing.”
Xue Miqi lowered her voice and asked hurriedly, “Qianqian, why are you so stupid? You actually slammed your head against the wall?”
If Xue Miqi had been handed the life of the eldest daughter of an affluent family, she would not be willing to die so easily.
Zhong Qianqian’s eyes darkened and said, “I was fuming. I was thinking that since they weren’t going to believe me, then I should just die to prove my innocence. You know that my parents had always spoiled me before this, but the minute Zhong Nuannuan came back to this family, we started to have arguments and fights. She’s only been back for half a year and I already feel so stressed. She does not even feel an ounce of shame or remorse after snatching away my boyfriend. Now, she’s slandering me”
When she said this, Zhong Qianqian’s voice was choked up with emotions.
Xue Miqi comforted her immediately. “Don’t cry. Don’t be sad. It’s going to be okay. It’s going to be okay eventually.”
When she thought about Zhong Nuannuan’s delicate and beautiful face, Xue Miqi got angry.
“Zhong Nuannuan is so evil. She’s such a b*tch! I’ve never seen such a b*tchy person before! Chi Yang too! How can he abandon you just because he had lost his chastity to her when she was the one who had drugged him? What year is it now? He does not need to be responsible for whoever he had slept with. Zhong Nuannuan’s such a sl*t. Who knows how many men she had slept with before Chi Yang?”
“Miqi, don’t say this in front of other people. You know that my dad and Chi Yang are soldiers. Soldiers have rules and regulations that they need to follow. My dad is spoiling her now. Since Chi Yang had already slept with her once before, he’s now pampering her as well. If they hear you talking bad about Zhong Nuannuan, they would never forgive you.” Zhong Qianqian was pretending to be concerned about Xue Miqi like a good friend.
“Don’t worry, I’m not stupid. I’m just voicing out against the injustice.”
Zhong Qianqian smiled. “It wasn’t my choice to be her sister. I guess I’m just unlucky.”
“Do you want to just let this be?” Xue Miqi’s eyes went wide. She could not believe this.
“Yeah. Do you want me to go and make a fuss?”
Xue Miqi was about to advise Zhong Qianqian to snatch Chi Yang back. Just then, Zhong Qianqian’s phone rang.
When she looked at the caller ID, Zhong Qianqian beamed with joy. She pressed the accept button and said in an extremely gentle voice, “Aiden, are you here already?”
“I’m changing. After I’m done, I’ll leave the house.”
While listening to Aiden’s gentle voice from the other end of the phone, Zhong Qianqian’s lips curved into a smile. Her gaze turned flirtatious. Even a passerby could tell that she was on the phone with her boyfriend after just one look.
