Chapter 133: Framed
The artist called Recluse, Fu Chun, had yet to leave the art exhibition center.
After the meeting, he proceeded to the art exhibition.
The location of the painting in question should be in a remote corner, where works sent in by unknown painters were displayed.
Just as he walked over, he saw chaos in front of him. He frowned. “What happened?”
The staff hurriedly said, “There’s a customer who accidentally spilled ice cream and dirtied the painting inside.”
The art exhibition had limited s.p.a.ce. In this small area, there were four to five other inexpensive new pieces.
Fu Chun’s face darkened. “How can such a low-level mistake be made? Also, who is allowed to eat in an art exhibition?”
The staff had a dejected look on his face as he continued, “President Xu Fang has already lost her temper and fired the person who made the mistake. Fortunately, these paintings are not expensive. Otherwise, that person would really have made a huge mistake!”
However, Fu Chun had a headache. What was he supposed to do about the young lady now that the painting was dirtied?
“We’re planning to call the painters one by one and get them to bring another painting to the exhibition. That’s our apology.”
Fu Chun nodded.
Then I’ll wait for the painter of the painting to deliver another one before helping.
Xu Fang stood not far away and smiled at the situation.
Bin City was her territory, after all. It was easy for her to make things happen.
However, she really did not expect Recluse to come and look at the painting. Could it be that Fu Yuanxiu had told him? Fortunately, she was meticulous and had dirtied the painting beforehand.
That night, Ye Li did not go downstairs for dinner. Although Xue Xi was worried, even Song Wenman did not want her to worry, so she returned to her room to read.
Xue Xi tidied her bag. When she saw the medicine bottle Ji Silin had given her, she opened the bottle and was about to take one when she suddenly recalled Xiang Huai’s injured expression yesterday.
She paused for a moment and decided not to take her medicine. She twisted the bottle and placed it in her bag before heading downstairs.
Ye Li seemed to have recovered a little, but she was still depressed. When Xue Xi was leaving with her breakfast, Ye Li paused and said, “The painting that I had framed for you will be done this afternoon. It will be hung in your room when you come back tonight.”
Xue Xi’s eyes lit up. “Okay.”
In the provision store.
Xiang Huai sat behind the counter with the Buddhist scriptures in hand and listened to the person in front of him.
Jing Fei was wearing his favorite company uniform and was saying respectfully, “The Ji Silin you asked me to investigate has been well-behaved for the past few years and there has been no abnormalities…”
Just as Xiang Huai was about to say something, footsteps were heard from the door. Xue Xi, who was wearing her school uniform, walked in.
She seemed to not have expected that there was someone else in the room. She raised her misty eyes to take a look and was slightly surprised. “Little Pigeon? Why are you here?”
She then looked at Xiang Huai in understanding.
Xiang Huai must have done something to make the police come here, right?
Jing Fei received a warning look from his boss and immediately panicked. “Oh, I’m just checking the business license of this provision store.”
Look at how clever I am!
After saying that, he even started acting. He looked at Xiang Huai in all seriousness. “Let me see it.”
Xiang Huai, who was dressed in black, sat lazily and looked at him expressionlessly.
After staring at each other for about five seconds, Jing Fei finally recalled exactly where his boss’s business license came from. He must have a screw loose to have said something like that!

Faced with his boss’s cold gaze, Jing Fei bit the bullet and said, “Mhm. Since there’s no problem with the business license, I’ll leave now!”
The other party even called her and said in a domineering tone, “You must delete the Weibo post and apologize. Otherwise, we will pursue the reputation loss you have caused us.”
Qin Shuang was furious. “I didn’t do anything wrong. Why should I apologize?”
The other party sneered. “Then prove that you’re not wrong.”
Qin Shuang was really speechless. She subconsciously raised her voice. “Can you guys be more reasonable? How can I prove it?”
The other party was still cold-blooded and heartless. “We don’t know about that. Since you can’t prove that you were not faking it, the live-stream can only be blocked.”
Qin Shuang: “…F*ck! I’ll prove it to you!”
She cursed angrily.
Just as she was done scolding, a cold voice sounded behind her. “Prove what?”
The moment Qin Shuang turned around and saw Xue Xi, her eyes reddened. She choked, but she still said stubbornly, “Nothing.”
Xue Xi looked at her for a while, then replied with an “Oh” before entering the cla.s.sroom.
The chatterbox would speak up if she needed her help. If she did not want to say it, it was probably because she had her own pride.
Qin Shuang was distracted the whole day.
During the lesson, she received a call from the landlord. “It’s time to pay the rent. For three months, the total is 4500 yuan.”
Qin Shuang pursed her lips. “Can I hand portions over once a month?”
“No. If you can’t pay it whole, pack up and leave within the next two days.” The landlord hung up the call without any hesitation.
Qin Shuang frowned and looked at her bank card balance. There were only 2000 yuan left. Forget about professional training, she was almost out of money for food.
She took a deep breath and had to think of a solution.
Soon, it was time for school to end. Xue Xi walked past her and could not help but stop. After waiting for a while, she saw that Qin Shuang still did not intend to speak and could only go home.
When she entered the living room, she did not see Ye Li. She looked around, and Song Wenman said, “Xixi, the painting is done. It’s hanging in your room.”
