Su Lenghan mocked at himself. Who would’ve thought that the Su family would end up like this?
Before, his peers looked up to him, and his motivation was off the charts. He wanted to take the Su family to a greater height, so he spared no effort to secure a promising future for his family.
This was the reason why he treated the Yun family badly back then.
That time, the Yun family was reduced to bankruptcy, and Yun Bixue still treated him well and trusted him. He was struggling inside—what he wanted to do and what he needed to do were at odds with each other.
When Tian Jing City’s An Yexuan used his family’s power to announce that anyone who helped the Yun family would face the An family’s ire, he had to turn a blind eye towards Yun Bixue’s call for help. He didn’t want to take the risk and go against the An family.
He had taken everything into account for his family, but in the end, it was all for nothing. His decisions made him regret deeply. If he were to be given a chance to go back in time, he would throw everything away to protect Yun Bixue even at the expense of the Su family.
But there were no ifs in this world nor was there any medicine for regrets.
Su Lenghan was always lost in his thoughts, and sometimes, his heart felt empty.
Even as he continued to call people, no one was willing to help the Su family. The citizens in Ning An City understood that the Su family’s situation would only worsen, and that they couldn’t see any benefit from helping them. Furthermore, it was also known that the Su family did something wrong to Miss Yun.
Now that they were trying to suck up to Young Master Xie and Yun Bixue, they naturally wouldn’t help the Su family.
Su Lenghan felt colder than ever. He walked to the window and looked down from the building. This was the Su family’s foundation, built from his efforts. No matter what, he couldn’t bear to give up on it.
When he looked at his phone again and scrolled through his contacts, he saw the name ‘Yun Bixue.’ His finger paused, staring hard at this name, as his heart trembled and ached.
He raised his head to suppress these emotions. He really wanted to make the call, but he was afraid to hear a cold voice rejecting him from the other end. After mulling over it, he wrote a short text to her, but he couldn’t bring himself to press the send button.
After pausing for a while, the text was automatically saved in the draft folder.
Later, at noon, all departments reported a state of emergency—the organization needed to either lay off some employees or raise funds. Su Lenghan took a deep breath and finally pressed the send button.
After sending the text, he kept checking his phone, anxiously waiting for her reply. All of a sudden, he remembered those times when he received Yun Bixue’s texts. Even if he had seen them, he would only reply after he was done with whatever he was doing that time. Was this how she felt in the past?
He really wanted to apologize, but he knew that it was too late. Any word of apology now was already worthless.
Meanwhile, Yun Bixue was supervising the management of Snow Cloud Group. It was the middle of the month, so the human resource department was more relaxed. She took this opportunity to chat with Wang Man from time to time.
In one of their chats, Wang Man told her about what Li Xu said.
Yun Bixue was stunned. “Li Xu said that there’s another woman behind Xu Miaodan? And the reason why she wanted to spy on me was to report to that woman?”
“That’s right, but Li Xu doesn’t know who she is. Whenever Xu Miaodan calls that person, she would stay away from Li Xu. Also, Li Xu gave a new piece of information—that woman remained hidden and didn’t show her face. She said she was unwell and unable to do things.”
Yun Bixue was speechless. The only person she could think of was Chu Fei’er. It was something she would do if she were still alive.
