Chapter 274: Xiang Huai’s Little Idol Has Fallen (8)
Xue Sheng frowned. “This is my daughter. Do you dare to slap her?”
Seeing his fierce look, Xue Gui shrank his neck. He recalled that after he had schemed against Xue Xi last time, this brother had rushed home and nearly beat him to death. Now that he thought about it, the spot where his thigh was. .h.i.t was still hurting.
He coughed. “I was just casually saying it. I’ll teach her if it were my own daughter…”
Xue Sheng then turned to look at Xue Xi. “Xixi, what happened?”
Xue Xi finally had the chance to speak. “I think there’s a problem.”
Xue Sheng also felt that there was a problem!
Just as he was frowning in deep thought, Old Master Xue turned to look at Xue Xi. “What’s the problem? Xue Xi, make way for Mr. Steve first.”
Xue Xi shook her head. “No.”
Old Master Xue frowned.
At the banquet.
Ye Li, who had long realized that Xue Sheng, Xue Gui, and Old Master Xue were not around, followed them out. Meanwhile, Liu Yiqiu, who’d been listening attentively, would not ignore them. Hence, she hurriedly found Old Lady Xue and brought her over.
Inside the Xue family’s old mansion, everyone was feeling at home.
However, in the parking lot, the atmosphere was tense.
The moment Xue Xi said no, Old Lady Xue’s sharp voice sounded. “Who are you talking to? How dare you say no? I think you’re asking for a beating!”
After saying that, she turned to look at Xue Sheng and pointed at him as she scolded, “You unfilial son. Are you indulging your daughter and making her go against your father’s orders?! Old man, I’ve long said that this child is rebellious and is not on the same side as our Xue family. Look, she was taken away the moment she was born, making her have nothing in common with us! Such a person should be made to live outside. Why should we bring her back? She is a jinx. After she returned, our family started to get into trouble. Our elder son even separated from us! It’s all her fault!”
The person-in-charge had already left the hall. Even if the guests were not paying attention, they would have noticed it. Hence, some people were already paying attention to this side.
Old Lady Xue spoke very loudly. Ye Li was instantly afraid that the guests would hear and Xue Xi’s reputation would be ruined. She hurriedly said, “Mom, how can you say that about Xixi?”
Before she could finish speaking, Liu Yiqiu said aggressively, “Sister-in-law, our mother is talking. How can you interrupt? In our family, we’re taught not to interrupt when an elder is speaking. Junior can’t just do it. It’s really not good for you to do this.”
Ye Li: “?”
She was really furious. She felt that coming to the old mansion to attend the old patriarch’s banquet was a mistake!
This was too much!
Even if Xue Xi had really done something wrong, as an elder, she actually did not know how to help cover up under such circ.u.mstances. She even seemed to be afraid that others would not know about it…
Ye Li’s face turned red from anger.
Seeing that Liu Yiqiu had blocked Ye Li’s mouth, Old Lady Xue instantly became smug. Just as she was about to speak again, she heard Xue Sheng say, “Xixi is my daughter! What did she do wrong? As her father, it is I who should go back to teach her a lesson. Mom, we’re already separated!”
Old Lady Xue widened her eyes. “Even if we’re separated, I’m still her grandmother! I also have the right to teach her a lesson!”
Xue Sheng sighed. “Mom, don’t force me!”
Just as Old Lady Xue was about to say something, the old patriarch shouted, “Shut up!”
If she continued, her eldest son would really become her enemy!

Everyone instantly shut their mouths.
“Big Brother, because of your son-in-law, everyone in the company is in a panic. Everyone can’t focus on their work anymore. They’re all afraid that Qian Xin will make the company go bankrupt!”
Seeing that he was getting out of hand, Xue Sheng said, “Shut up!”
After he took over the company, he had almost suppressed his younger brother and the old patriarch. However, the news that Qian Xin was coming was deliberately spread in the company by Xue Gui to create panic.
The directors could only use this as an excuse to ask him to step down from his position as chairman and let Xue Gui take over temporarily. In order to prove himself, he had made a military pledge and said that he would lead the company to a new situation!
Even Qian Xin could not interfere with the overseas market!
Xue Xi and Xiang Huai, who were standing at the side, understood what Xue Gui meant.
Xiang Huai raised an eyebrow in surprise. He did not expect that he would actually bring so much trouble to his father-in-law.
On the other hand, Xue Xi felt warm inside.
It turned out that this father had always been like a small mountain, blocking all the uneasiness and panic for her and bearing it alone.
If it were not for Xue Gui, she would not have known that Xue Sheng had been under so much pressure recently.
Xue Gui continued, “Brother, what’s wrong? Can’t you even say these words? When you made the military pledge, the old people in the company were all there. If you don’t let me say it today, I’ll still have to say it on the board tomorrow!”
Xue Sheng had made a military pledge and had nothing to say about this business.
He felt a little tired and slowly said, “Okay, I’ll give up the chairman…”
Before he could finish speaking, Xue Xi’s cold voice suddenly said, “Wait.”
