Other than the most important person in her life, she wasn't bothered by their words or actions towards her.
Ming Ansheng used to say that she was acting all high and mighty. But the truth was, she chose to adopt a light hearted perspective of his comments and didn't allow them to affect her.
Even now as she was standing before Bright Vision's patriarch, her attitude was still cool and collected, showing no traces of humility or arrogance.
"Come over here and take a seat." Ming Zhongsheng pointed to the seat beside him and beckoned Xuxu.
His voice carried a hint of exhaustion.
Xuxu could sense an extreme weariness in him as he spoke.
She sized him up as she walked towards him. There weren't any dramatic news about the Ming family lately.
So, what's the matter with this old man? His sudden visit was so grand yet mysterious.
"Chairman Ming, may I know the purpose of your visit?" Xuxu asked Ming Zhongsheng bluntly. She was worried about her grandfather who was alone at the shop yet curious at the same time and didn't want to be kept on tenterhooks.
She smiled graciously and her tone was gentle and courteous.
Ming Zhongsheng frowned and looked displeased. "Stupid lass, given your wisdom, can't you guess the purpose of my visit today?
There was a sudden change in Ming Zhongsheng's emotions, yet Xuxu still looked calm. She shook her head and spoke with tranquility in her voice, "I really don't know. If I had known, I wouldn't have asked."
"I came to look for you because of Wen Xinyi." At the mention of Wen Xinyi, Ming Zhongsheng's voice softened and sounded a little meek.
When he looked at Xuxu, there were no more traces of his icily arrogance and contempt in his eyes. "I know that Xinyi went overboard this time and she don't deserve to be pardoned. On account that she's still young, I plead with you and Third Yan to be magnanimous and let her off."
Upon hearing this, Xuxu was even more bewildered. "Chairman Ming, I don't understand what you are talking about. What happened to Wen Xinyi?"
"You..." Ming Zhongsheng paused in astonishment. He narrowed his eyes and looked at Xuxu doubtfully. "Don't you know?"
How was it possible? It was such a serious matter. How could she not know?
Hmph. Ansheng was right. This stupid lass is full pretense.
He humbled himself to go and look for her, yet she took advantage of the situation and feigned ignorance, making a fool out of him.
"I really don't know what you are talking about." Xuxu sounded sincere and looked serious. "Please come straight to the point. I'm worried about my grandfather who is injured and alone at home."
Ming Zhongsheng narrowed his turbid looking eyes and stared suspiciously at Xuxu.
She didn't seem to be lying.
"You really don't know?" Without waiting for Xuxu to respond, he continued, "Xinyi feigned the car accident and knocked down Third Yan's grandmother by mistake. How can you not know about this?"
He still couldn't believe it.
Wild thoughts blasted through Xuxu's mind and the look on her face changed. She was stunned and stared blankly at Ming Zhongsheng's wrinkled face
There was a lump in her throat and she couldn't find her voice.
Ming Zhongsheng was alarmed at Xuxu's reaction.
She didn't know! This stupid lass really has no idea of the entire matter. How could this be possible?
