Wang Man placed the stack of documents on the table before replying happily, “Okay.” After fixing her clothes, she followed Yun Bixue out.
Yun Bixue chose a classy restaurant to treat Wang Man. All throughout their meal, her bodyguards were watching and protecting her from a safe distance.
When the restaurant’s manager recognized Yun Bixue, he immediately came over to welcome her in a respectful manner and promptly brought them to a private room.
A diner who was at the side complained, “Wow? They said all the private rooms are reserved! How come there’s a room available now? What’s with this huge difference in treatment?”
The lady at the side replied, “That’s enough. Didn’t you see who it was? She’s the first lady of this city. If you were in that manager’s shoes, you would’ve done the same, wouldn’t you?”
The man rubbed his chin. “Yeah, you have a point there. Alright, just give us a table.”
“Okay, please follow me,” said the restaurant’s host to the two diners.
When Yun Bixue and Wang Man entered the private room, they ordered the signature dishes of that restaurant. After taking their orders, the manager immediately rushed to the kitchen to get the head chef to prepare their food before the other customers.
The moment the manager left the kitchen, the head chef complained stuffily, “Who’s the big shot that the manager is welcoming today? It’s the first time I’ve seen him running around like this.”
“Who knows? We just have to do our job well.”
Later, when Yun Bixue and Wang Man were done with their lunch, they coincidentally saw Meng Xinyan and the man Yun Bixue saw at the supermarket the other time. A waiter was leading them to a private room as well.
When Wang Man noticed that Yun Bixue paused in her steps and appeared distracted, she followed the latter’s gaze and whispered, “Elder Sister Yun, isn’t that an employee from Su Family Organization? I’ve met her before when we cooperated with them.”
Yun Bixue carefully considered Wang Man’s words before revealing an enlightened expression. No wonder he was familiar—he was an employee of Su Family Organization. “Why is he here with Meng Xinyan?”
Wang Man replied, “The two of them might be colluding together. I wonder if Young Master Su is aware of this?”
Yun Bixue thought about it for a moment before turning to leave. Xie Limo was right. She should not worry about other people’s affairs!
When she returned to the office, Xie Jiu called her regarding Li Qiuyan. She has been interrogated and tortured thoroughly, and would be executed tonight, so he was asking for her opinion.
“I don’t have much opinion, but I want to see her later in the afternoon.”
When Xie Jiu remained silent for a while, Yun Bixue asked, “What’s wrong? I can’t talk to her?”
“No, that’s not it. I’m afraid that it’s a little unsuitable for Young Madam to see her current state.”
Although Xie Jiu phrased it nicely, Yun Bixue understood that Li Qiuyan probably had all her looks destroyed. However, she wouldn’t feel any sympathy for her. Anyone who tried to kill her was an enemy. They didn’t need any pity from her.
When she finally saw Li Qiuyan in the holding cell, Yun Bixue almost puked. As a means of avenging for her, she knew that Xie Jiu treated Li Qiuyan as though she was Chu Fei’er.
Xie Jiu spoke up respectfully from the side. “Young Madam, she’s a tough one. Since she refused to reveal any information, we had no choice but to use physical torture…”
Yun Bixue waved her hands flippantly. Calming her emotions, she moved closer to Li Qiuyan and lowered her head. “Li Qiuyan, can you still recognize me?”
Li Qiuyan’s body was suspended, and she looked venomously at Yun Bixue before she croaked out in a hoarse voice, “You’re the person who harmed Fei’er.”
Yun Bixue hugged her stomach as she laughed. She strolled languidly around the cell while saying, “Li Qiuyan, you’re here giving up your life for Chu Fei’er, but I’m here to tell you that she’s still alive. Unfortunately, you can’t see her since you will be executed tonight. Also, you love Chu Fei’er so much, but do you know your place in her heart?”
