Chapter 252: I Will Protect Xiao Xiang!
Xue Xi and Ye Li paused in their footsteps.
Ye Li frowned and glanced at Xue Xi, only to see a hint of impatience on her face.
It was not only Xue Xi; Ye Li also felt annoyed.
In the past, when her daughter was missing and she was distracted, the old lady would often speak behind her back sarcastically. She would pretend that she did not hear anything, and Xue Sheng did not know either. Just like that, eighteen years pa.s.sed by with her being muddle-headed. When Xue Xi returned, the old lady started to become worse.
She first ostracized her and Xixi, then forced them all to split up.
It was good that they split up. She finally did not have to look at Old Lady Xue’s face anymore, but Xue Sheng was held back by the company’s matters. He had been so busy recently that he could not be seen.
As the CEO of the company, it was normal for Xue Sheng to be a little busy.
After everything was done and the project was settled, why was Old Lady Xue making trouble again?
In the past, Ye Li had swallowed her anger because she did not have any financial income and could not speak at home. But now… Thinking of the balance in her bank card, she straightened her back and walked into the room first.
In the living room, Old Lady Xue was sitting there with her eyelids drooping.
When Ye Li entered, Old Lady Xue saw her and stopped talking. She snorted.
After all, Old Lady Xue was Xue Sheng’s mother, so Ye Li could not say anything. She only said to Xue Xi, “Xixi, it’s been a long day. Go upstairs and rest first.”
Xue Xi nodded and pushed the two luggage forward.
Xue Sheng hurriedly walked over. “I’ll help you carry it.”
There were no elevators in the villa, and there were two suitcases. Xue Sheng felt that Xue Xi could not carry them up. He took the luggage from Xue Xi’s hands and was about to exert force when he suddenly realized—
The suitcases were heavy and did not move.
Xue Sheng: “?”
Why did it seem so easy for Xixi to carry them just now?
As he thought this, Xue Xi picked up the luggage and went upstairs. “Dad, there’s no need.”
Xue Sheng: “…”
Old Lady Xue pouted. “You really don’t know how to be polite. You didn’t even greet anyone who came.”
Xue Xi ignored her. Just as she said this, Xue Xi had already arrived upstairs and entered her room. She slammed the door shut.
Old Lady Xue frowned and the wrinkles on her face appeared. “Look at her. What kind of att.i.tude is this?”
Xue Sheng ignored him.
Ye Li changed the topic. “Mom, you came at the right time. I bought a gift for you and Dad. We’ll bring it back later.”
She had left her house and went to the capital for a few days. Xue Xi’s maternal grandparents were also still staying at home. Hence, when Ye Li returned, she bought everyone a present.
However, just as the gift box was pa.s.sed to Old Lady Xue, she grabbed it and sneered sarcastically, “My son is as busy as a dog in the company. He’s working hard to earn money, but you’re having it good. Did you go to the capital to play? And you’re spending so much money? Isn’t spending my son’s money especially rude?”
Ye Li frowned when she heard this.
Xue Sheng also said, “Mom, Ye Li is my wife and what’s mine is hers. There is no difference between us!”
Old Lady Xue snorted. “Xue Sheng, I’m doing this for your own good…”
“For his own good, you call him a dog?”

Suddenly, Xue Xi’s maternal grandmother, Song Wenman, spoke. Ever since Old Lady Xue arrived, she had been in their room with Ye Lai.
Xiang Huai replied, “Mhm, I guess so.”
Xue Xi: “Then you’re busy. I won’t disturb you anymore.”
She called him to ask if he had arrived. After all, Little Flame did not like Xiang Huai. What if the two of them quarreled in the car after she alighted?
Hearing that he had arrived, everything was fine.
Xue Xi hung up and took out her exercise book, intending to make up for this period of time. As she was playing eSports, she did not continue to do her homework.
However, just as she picked up the pen, she recalled the situation downstairs.
In the past, she did not care about how Old Lady Xue, Ye Li, and Xue Sheng quarreled.
At the thought of Ye Li and Xue Sheng, Xue Xi stood up and opened the door to go downstairs.
Just as she arrived downstairs, she heard Old Lady Xue say earnestly, “It’s not that I want to say this, but other than having a better-looking face, what other merits does this gigolo have? Some time ago, Lu Chao came, and now it’s Qian Xin. I don’t know what’s wrong with Bin City, but these big shots keep on coming. However, this Qian Xin is clearly more formidable than Lu Chao. Son, if you don’t want to give the chairman position to Xue Gui, then find another son-in-law! Anyway, there are many good-looking people around.
“Now, if your daughter really likes him and can’t let him go, she can just find someone else to play the part of a proper fiance. Also, isn’t that grandson of the Gao family pretty good?”
Although Xue Sheng was already sick of Old Lady Xue, she was still his mother. Since she had said this, Xue Sheng could only patiently explain to her, “Mom, you don’t have to worry about this matter anymore. I’ve interacted with Xiao Xiang before. He’s a very good person and has a promising future. I don’t know Qian Xin’s motive for coming here yet, so you don’t have to worry too much.
Xue Sheng straightened his back. “I, Xue Sheng, have a clear conscience and am not afraid of this Qian Xin! If he really comes looking for trouble with Xiao Xiang, I’m not afraid! This is Bin City! It’s not the capital!”
After saying this, he heard footsteps. He turned around and saw that his daughter, who was engrossed in her studies, had actually gone downstairs. Thinking that Xue Xi was worried about Xiang Huai, he said, “Xixi, don’t worry. Your father is not easy to mess with either. I will protect Xiao Xiang well!”
Xue Xi: “…”
