Chapter 284: Is He Interested Just for Now?

Mrs. Li must have come so early in the morning for a reason.

However, she had been chatting with Ye Li, but when Xue Xi went downstairs, she stared at her and seemed to be hesitating to speak.

Xue Xi waited for her to speak, but Mrs. Li did not say anything. She could not figure out what the other party was thinking, so she, who had always been aloof, left with her breakfast.

However, when she reached the door, for some unknown reason, she turned around and realized that Mrs. Li was not in good spirits. It was as though she had encountered some trouble.

Xue Xi had not intended to meddle in other people’s business, but then she thought about how Mrs. Li was one of the only two people her mother could get along with, and how Mrs. Li did not kick her while she was down when others were scolding her family. Mrs. Li even spoke up for her at Mrs. Xia’s banquet.

As these thoughts flashed across her mind, Xue Xi did not know what she was thinking. By the time she reacted, she was already in front of Mrs. Li. She simply walked as she pleased and asked, “Mrs. Li, do you have something to tell me?”

Mrs. Li did not expect the young lady to be so sensitive. As the wife of a wealthy family, she had long since learned to suppress her thoughts. At least, she did not show she was feeling embarra.s.sed earlier.

While she was feeling surprised, she sighed at Xue Xi’s exquisite heart.

However, she had already decided not to create trouble for Xue Xi, so she said, “I’m really fine.”

After saying that, she looked at Ye Li and said, “Mhm, what company does your family intend to start? If you need help, just tell me!”

Ye Li nodded. “We haven’t decided what we want to do. After all, what happened yesterday happened too suddenly. We still have to think about it. If I need your help, I will definitely speak up.”

Mrs. Li nodded and stood up to leave.

Seeing that she did not speak, Xue Xi did not ask further. Just as Mrs. Li was about to leave—

Xiao Fang walked in. “Madam, Old Master and Old Madam have brought the second branch’s husband and wife.”

The moment she said this, Old Lady Xue’s voice sounded. “When did I ever need to be reported when coming to my son’s house?”

She entered in displeasure and sat down on the sofa, acting like an elder.

Old Master Xue also frowned.

Xue Gui kept his head lowered and followed beside Old Master Xue.

The moment Liu Yiqiu entered, her eyes were fixed on Xue Xi as though she was a money tree. Her intentions were undisguised, as though she would not leave without taking a layer of gold.

Xue Xi felt uncomfortable being stared at and frowned.

Mrs. Li said very tactfully, “Then I’ll leave first.”

“Okay.”

Ye Li looked at Old Lady Xue. “Mom, I’ll send Mrs. Li out first.”

Just as the two of them were about to leave, Liu Yiqiu’s eyes darted around. She immediately walked to Xue Xi and pretended to be concerned. “Xixi, is Mrs. Li here to ask you to beg Mr. Xiang for her?”

Xue Xi: “?”

After calming down, she realized that Mr. Xiang was referring to Xiang Huai.

In the past, when these people mentioned him, they called him pretty boy or gigolo. She was still a little unaccustomed to him suddenly being addressed seriously.

She frowned. Before she could speak, Ye Li had already said, “No.”

Mrs. Li’s expression was also a little ugly.

Liu Yiqiu thought that they were lying. After all, the Li family’s matter had been spread throughout Bin City recently. The Li family had been asking for help everywhere.

Liu Yiqiu immediately said, “Xixi, Sister-in-law, don’t hide it from me. If it’s not about the Li family, why would Mrs. Li come so early in the morning?”

In order to please Ye Li, she said in an exaggerated manner, “I’m doing this for your own good. Xixi, you must not stand up for the Li family. You just found out Mr. Xiang’s ident.i.ty, right? It’s not good to go look for him to do things!”

Xue Xi suddenly understood and frowned.

Seeing her like this, Mrs. Li thought that she was in a difficult position. Hence, she said, “It’s fine if you can’t ask. Really, I actually don’t want to trouble you anymore.”

Xue Xi shook her head. “No.”

She was just thinking that this was just a business deal. She could just ask for help. Why were these people so conflicted?

She did not realize how humbled these people felt when they found out about Xiang Huai’s ident.i.ty.

She picked up her phone and was about to make a call when Liu Yiqiu rushed over and stopped her. “Xixi, you can’t call this number!”

Xue Xi: “?”

Liu Yiqiu frowned. “Look, if we start to create trouble for Mr. Xiang the moment we found out about his ident.i.ty, he would be unhappy! What if he scolds you or breaks up with you?”

Upstairs, after Xue Sheng heard that Old Master Xue’s family had arrived, he headed downstairs in time to hear Liu Yiqiu’s words. He immediately said, “If they break up then they break up! Our Xixi is just dating him. She doesn’t have to be with him!”

“What are you saying?” The old lady patted the armrest of the sofa and reprimanded loudly, “Do you really think that your daughter is so hard to come by? Mr. Xiang is only interested in her for the time being. If she dares to make any requests, she will probably anger Mr. Xiang!”

Just as she said this, she suddenly heard a voice coming from the phone. “Little kid?”

This voice…

Everyone at the banquet yesterday had heard it!

Everyone fell silent and looked at Xue Xi in disbelief.

Xue Xi had ignored all of them and picked up her phone to call Xiang Huai.

Mrs. Li’s heart skipped a beat. She thought that if Mr. Xiang got angry later, she would take the blame on herself and say that she had pleaded with Xue Xi to make the call. She could not let the young lady suffer!
