Shen Wenna sat down carefully, shocked that Qi Lei knew her surname. “How do you know that my surname is Shen?”
Qi Lei smiled as he sat down beside her. He glanced at the quiet and elegant Shen Wenna, recognizing Xi Xiaye’s shadow on her. He chuckled a little. “I saw what happened just now. Xiaye and I are good friends. She even saved me last time. I’ve been looking for a chance to thank her, but I never found it, and fortunately, today I bumped into you, Aunty Shen!”
Shen Wenna was caught off-guard. She tilted her head slightly and asked in a surprised tone, “Are you Xiaye’s friend?”
Qi Lei nodded. “We’re friends. I’m Qi Lei. Aunty Shen, just call me by my name.”
“Qi Lei?” Shen Wenna repeated it quietly. “Thank you for today.” That woman might have kept on annoying her if he had not interfered.
“It’s alright. Did you hurt yourself anywhere just now?”
Of course, Qi Lei knew about Shen Wenna. It was plastered all over the newspapers. However, there had not been any new updates these past two days, so it was obvious who was behind it.
Mu Yuchen must have locked the news down. He heard that the Yue family had been making a lot of noise about this. It was pretty unclear how things were going right now.
“I’m okay. I’m not hurt.” Shen Wenna shot him a thankful smile.
Qi Lei opened the paper in his hand. It was documented proof of an injury, a light concussion, missing teeth… He was then reminded about Yue Lingsi’s swollen face and her words just now. It only meant one thing — Xi Xiaye had beaten her up!
What a fearsome woman! Yue Lingsi probably suffered quite a painful beating, and it must have been all because of Shen Wenna.
Qi Lei averted his gaze and looked at Shen Wenna beside him. As he was putting the stuff in his hand away, Xi Xiaye’s cold voice came from the front, “Why are you here?”
Qi Lei looked up and saw Xi Xiaye with a bottle of water in one hand, her phone in the other. She threw him a cold stare.
Qi Lei put on a cheerful smile and called out to her, “Xiaye!”
Xi Xiaye glanced at Qi Lei distantly while she opened the bottle of water and handed it to Shen Wenna without giving Qi Lei any reaction. “Mother, have some water.”
Shen Wenna took it carefully as she put on a smile. “Xiaye, so Mr. Qi is your friend. We have to thank him for just now, he was really helpful.”
“Thank him for what?”
Xi Xiaye felt that something was amiss. She turned over and glared at Qi Lei with her eyes in slits. Her tone was unfriendly. “What did you do to my mother?”
Qi Lei shrugged innocently as he put on a hurt expression. “I didn’t do anything. I’m the good guy here. You can ask Aunty Shen what happened!”
“You’ve misunderstood him, Xiaye. Yue Lingsi came over just now and Mr. Qi here helped me out,” explained Shen Wenna quickly when she felt the atmosphere was not right.
“What is she doing here? Did she not have enough yesterday?” Xi Xiaye’s body strained when she heard the name Yue Lingsi. Immediately, she emitted a cold aura around her.
“I’m alright. Don’t worry. Mr. Qi made her go away.”
Shen Wenna smiled and extended her hand towards Xi Xiaye who sat beside her. Meanwhile, Qi Lei stood aside.
“See, I told you I’m the good guy here. Why do you always have such bias towards me? I went to Glory World several times to look for you. I wanted to thank you for saving me last time, but you weren’t in the office all the time. Where have you been?”
Qi Lei put his hands into his pocket and looked at Xi Xiaye from above.
“I didn’t expect CEO Qi to be such a thankful person. It’s no big deal. You helped my mother today, so we’re even now.” Xi Xiaye relaxed a little when she heard Shen Wenna’s explanation. Even her tone softened as well.
“Even? I’m afraid not. You might need to thank me instead. Take a look at these. If these reach the editors, you’re going to get in trouble.”
Qi Lei handed the proof of injury he had just received from Yue Lingsi.
Xi XIaye glanced at it and laughed coldly. “It’s just a small trick. Did I really beat her up just because she said so? Who witnessed it? Can’t I say she’s an evil stepmother trying to force me to give her the shares in my hands? She tried to harm me when I said no. It could’ve just been in self-defense.”
“You do have some serious quibbling skills. I heard Xi Xinyi just took over Yueying and that Glory World has gone through a lot of changes recently. She was thinking of some ways to pressure you. Don’t you want to know what is she going to do?” Qi Lei gave Xi Xiaye a meaningful glance.
“I’m waiting for her! Tell her what I said.”
“Don’t say that, Xiaye. I’m not one of them. I might be on your side!” Qi Lei was trying to be ambiguous with his words, and Xi Xiaye was exhausted simply listening to him.
She looked at him coldly for some time before saying, “On my side? I remember that Qi Kai is her pillar of support in Yueying. Don’t tell me this wasn’t your idea.”
“It’s really not my idea. I’m just executing whatever my council of presidents is saying. It’s not something that I can decide on alone. I can even not help her for you. Do you think I’d help a woman like her genuinely?” Qi Lei chuckled since he never really liked Xi Xinyi anyway. What a stupid woman! She thought she was really something when she was just a pretty little thing. She tried to do some little tricks in front of him, yet Qi Lei hated women like her the most!
“I sound like a big shot now.” Xi Xiaye laughed as she left the piece of paper on the long bench. “But I don’t need your help.”
“Mother, it’s getting late now. Let’s go back.” Xi Xiaye then stood up.
