“Someone even asked me for money after that.” Huo Ting continued, “If Xu Bei said it, I would not believe her. However, the people that came to find me said the same thing as Xu Bei. He even had evidence in hand. Xia Lian, if it wasn’t for me, you would be in prison now.”
Huo Ting saw the astonishment and hatred in Xia Lian’s eyes.
Huo Ting said, “I always felt that you were a smart but pure girl. How could you do such a thing?”
In Huo Ting’s heart, he could do such things but the person he liked couldn’t. The person he liked couldn’t be a vicious person.
If he knew that Xia Lian was this kind of person from the start, he would not have started any relationship with her.
When he thought of how Xia Lian stayed by his side so purely and innocently but did such things behind his back, Huo Ting couldn’t help but feel disgusted.
Xia Lian grabbed Huo Ting’s hand in a fl.u.s.ter. “Listen to me, I was forced. Xu Bei and Lu Zhuo wanted to kill me. I had no choice…”
“Xia Lian, for old times’ sake, don’t come and look for me again.” Huo Ting pulled his hand back and spoke in a cold tone.
“Huo Ting… you… you can’t do this to me.”
“Get out of the car.”
“Huo Ting, didn’t you say that you like me? How can you do this to me? You can’t…”
Xia Lian was chased out of the car by Huo Ting. She stood in the middle of the deserted road. There were tears on her face. She stared into the distance in a daze.
Huo Ting wasn’t extreme in severing ties with her. He even gave her money and an agent. Xia Lian knew that Huo Ting was determined to cut ties with her so after being depressed, she went to contact the agent actively.
The entertainment industry now was totally different from the entertainment industry one year ago.
Xia Lian couldn’t get used to it at the start when she just went back.
The agent didn’t have many resources on hand so Xia Lian returned to being an extra again. Xia Lian’s face couldn’t do many expressions so those supporting roles that had dialogues weren’t given to her, either.
“Hey, that’s Lu Zhuo. He is actually filming a drama beside us. I can actually be so close to him! I feel so happy!”
“You only found out now? I found out yesterday. Ancient & Modern Entertainment specially invested in this drama because of Lu Zhuo.”
“That Boss Xu is together with Lu Zhuo now?”
“Should be… together? Ancient & Modern Entertainment blacklisted many artists for Lu Zhuo. If they are not together, would they do that for him?”
Xia Lian heard the other extras discussing enviously and her expression got darker.
Since the neighboring production crew had Lu Zhuo in it, it caused them to slow down their filming too.
When Xia Lian finished filming, the neighboring production crew was still filming. She took the chance when the props crew was moving the props to sneak in.
She looked around inside for a while, but didn’t see Lu Zhuo.
“What are you looking at?”
Someone suddenly appeared beside Xia Lian. She got a shock and twisted her head around instantly. Lu Zhuo was leaning against the props and looking at her without any expression on his face.
Xia Lian felt as though she was back in that room. Lu Zhuo had looked at her with the same expression and… wanted to kill her.
She remembered that her looks were different now so she changed her voice. “Nothing.”
Lu Zhuo raised his foot and walked toward her. Xia Lian felt an oppressive aura bearing down on her. It was really scary. The air in her lungs was all pushed out in an instant. There seemed to be a pair of invisible hands strangling her, causing her to lose her ability to breathe.
“Mister Lu, Boss Xu’s car is here.”

Someone called him from outside.
In the huge explosion, she was lucky to be alive, but this person didn’t die, either. He even looked the same as before.
Xia Lian reined in her emotions and asked cautiously, “What do you want?”
“Repay what you owe. Do you not know this rule?”
“500 thousand. I will give it to you tomorrow,” Xia Lian said immediately.
“500 thousand?” The man’s face suddenly darkened. “You are looking down on me.”
“We agreed on this price last time. Don’t try to rob me now.”
“Three million. I will give Miss Xia one day. Tomorrow at this same place, if you are not here, you might have to pay a visit to the police station.”
That time, Xia Lian ran away quickly overseas. However, he was not so lucky. He was found out by that woman and she came to beat him up violently alongside some of her men. He had lost one of his legs in the explosion so it was a miracle that he managed to survive.
He couldn’t do anything to that woman, but he met Xia Lian today. He was really lucky.
Even two million was too cheap for Xia Lian.
The man finished speaking and got up to leave.
Xia Lian noticed that he was limping and the aura around him was not as oppressive as in the past. He was like a tiger whose fangs were plucked.
Huo Ting gave her quite a lot of money, but she spent most of it on a house since she was not living with the Xia family now. If she gave him three million, she would not have much money left on her.
However, if she didn’t give him the money, he might report her.
It was against the law to hire someone to kidnap another person.
Also, that explosion had a casualty too.
