After listening to Zhou Pingyu’s words, Meng Xintong finally calmed down. Indeed, there seemed to be something fishy about this. She tried to recall the photo that was published together with the news. They seemed to be out in broad daylight, not to mention that the public could easily see them. If the child was really illegitimate, would Young Master Xie bring her out and allow themselves to be captured?
Now that she had considered this possibility, Meng Xintong thought that she must have been confused. The news could be fake, but what about the photo?
Perhaps it was because she respected and trusted Young Master Xie and felt that he was a wonderful man deep down. Therefore, when she saw the news, she was utterly shocked and felt angry and indignant for her close friend and benefactor.
“You’re right, Pingyu. I might have acted too rashly. But still, I’m very worried about Yun Bixue. She’s still unconscious.”
“Since the news is fake, you can give Young Master Xie a call. Tell him that Yun Bixue had fainted and is in the hospital now. He will definitely come. I can assure you that the child on the news is definitely not Young Master Xie’s. This is the astuteness that a political figure needed to have. In the future, you will take charge of the Meng family, so you have to train yourself. Don’t just believe what you see. You have to trust your gut feeling.”
Now that she felt more comfortable, Meng Xintong stuck her tongue out. “I understand.”
“You should go to bed now. Sleep well, alright?”
That night, in the Xie family’s villa, Xie Liu, Xie Qi, and Xie Ba stood in front of Young Master Xie. The entire house was filled with a thick and forbidding atmosphere, and the three subordinates’ foreheads had begun to sweat.
At that moment, Young Master Xie unleashed all of his prowess. They couldn’t handle such immense pressure, and they didn’t even dare to wipe away the beads of sweat on their foreheads.
The icy expression on Xie Limo’s face was overwhelming. He was brimming with killing intent as he held a gun in his hands.
Xie Limo fired two shots at the wall. Even though there was a silencer on the gun, the whole room still trembled with the impact.
Xie Liu shivered deep down, his lips trembling. He didn’t dare to say a single word.
As a matter of fact, Xie Limo didn’t get off from work earlier than usual. As soon as he returned home, he prepared dinner and waited for Yun Bixue to come home. However, after a long time, Yun Bixue didn’t return, and Xie Limo grew anxious.
He called her, but she wasn’t answering at all. He then sent his subordinates to search for her, but there were no signs of her even after half an hour.
Xie Limo’s heart almost stopped beating. He still felt lingering fear as he recalled the fire and explosion that happened before. On top of that, Xie Liu had even come back with a disturbing update—the news had reported that he had an illegitimate child. His expression immediately turned cold.
After hearing this news, the fact that Young Madam couldn’t be contacted now made sense. Young Master Xie was so furious, and it felt like the entire ground would tremble from his fury.
Young Master Xie didn’t say a single word, but the three subordinates felt that even the sky was being ripped apart. They didn’t even dare to breathe loudly as they remained standing throughout this.
They were also waiting for news that Young Madam had been located.
Xie Limo had a crazed, killing impulse now. He didn’t dare to imagine what he would do if something were to happen to Yun Bixue again. He had been too soft and easy on the things that happened in Ning An City.
When he thought about this, a murderous glint flashed across his eyes. Dark waves crashed all over them, and they looked like they could devour the entire city.
Seething with rage, he slammed the newspaper on the table. “So, this is the headline today? Very well. It seems like I, Young Master Xie, have been too soft.”
Hearing Xie Limo’s words, Xie Liu’s heart trembled nonstop. He could already imagine how much the media companies in Ning An City would suffer. He might eradicate all the companies who reported this news. Having worked alongside Young Master Xie for so many years, he had no doubt that Young Master Xie was capable of doing such a thing.
