Everyone nodded in agreement. If the Feng family were so easily taken down, they wouldn't have risen to the status they held that day.
"Regardless, this is now an all-out war between us and them, the Feng family! From now on, be careful around anyone from the Feng family and try your best to collect evidence against them!" Grandfather Xi announced.
Everyone but Xinghe nodded. However, even so, she would not forgive the Feng family. The fact that she was tortured by Saohuang when she was Xia Meng aside, he was coming after the Xi family now and there were people she cared about in the Xi family
Hence, she would not let him off the hook so easily. After the brief discussion, everyone dispersed. Jiangnian left in a hurry to check on his son, Munan. Xinghe also planned to leave, it had been too long since she last spent time with her uncle and Xia Zhi.
"Come, I'll drive you home," Mubai offered considerately. Of course, he wanted her to stay but it was true that she hadn't been home for a long time and he respected her wishes.
Xinghe didn't reject and follow him to his car. Mubai took the opportunity to pass Xia Meng's energy crystal to her. Along the way, Xinghe kept studying it.
"That thing is really a power source of some sort?" Mubai glanced at it and asked.
"No clue but I would love to find out," Xinghe answered.
"Use the lab then, I will have someone keep a room open especially for you."
Xinghe thought about it before nodding. "Thank you."
The Xi family's lab was the best in country. If she was going to get any results, it would be there.
"But you have to be careful to not let Saohuang knows that you have such a thing," Mubai reminded with obvious concern. Even without his reminder, Xinghe knew what to do. Even though Mubai believed in her carefulness and capability, he couldn't help but worry.
"Why don't you move in with me?" he suddenly suggested. "We are going to work against Feng family so who knows what kind of danger might be coming your way. Stay with me so at least I can keep you safe."
Xinghe shook her head. "That won't be necessary, I'll be fine."
"I will reconsider if such a need arises."
Mubai smiled. "Okay."
He was glad because at least she didn't completely reject him. For some reason, he found himself unable to resist her demands. He probably would kill himself if she ever asked him to
His car quickly arrived at Purple Jade Villa.
When Xinghe was getting out of the car, Mubai pulled on her arm. "You worked very hard last night so go and rest well. Don't trouble yourself with anything just yet."
Xinghe nodded. "I know."
Mubai's eyes shook and eventually pulled her in for a hug before letting her go reluctantly. "Alright, take care. Give me a call if you need anything."
Xinghe nodded slightly before getting down. She walked to the front door and knocked.
The one who opened the door was Chengwu. He was almost in tears when he saw Xinghe. "Xinghe, why did you return so suddenly without telling uncle first? I would have prepared something to welcome you. How are you feeling? How's your body? Have you recovered?"
Chengwu fussed over her so much that Xinghe was at a loss as to how to respond. She could hear the engine of Mubai's car still idling so she pulled Chengwu and said, "Uncle, let's go in first."
"Okay!" Chengwu finally spotted Mubai. He nodded at him awkwardly in way of a greeting.
