Chapter 1: Past Events(1) [Part 2]
She quietly listened to her fiancé, or rather, ex-fiancé talking about his affair. After he finished speaking, she gently nodded and spoke in a soft, breezy tone, “I understand but no matter what you say, you can’t deny that DongFang Yu is a morally corrupt woman who became the third person in someone’s relationship. And no matter how deep your feelings are for her, you can’t deny your betrayal. Xiao Yun, you damaged both the Yang and Xiao family’s reputation and interests just for one woman. I disdain a man like you. If it were upto me, I would not have sat here to meet and talk with you but directly called my lawyer to handle the formalities of dissolving the engagement. But there is the Yang family behind me. Now, please spill the amount you plan to spend for your beloved woman. Hehe, don’t tell me that you just want to tell me your pitiful love story and gather the sympathy of the audience in front of the camera to apologize and settle this. Do you?”
In such relaxed tone, she exposed Xiao Yun’s true intention for the live broadcast and forced the other party into silence with a few words. The Yang QiQi she saw back then was so bright and dazzling that she felt ashamed.
Yang QiQi was similar to a gorgeous and proud Queen no matter when or where. DongFang Yu had long realized the gap between herself and the noble Miss Yang. Even she herself felt that Xiao Yun’s choice to abandon Yang QiQi for herself was in fact, incredible.
Faced with Yang QiQi’s counterattack, Xiao Yun knew that he would be unable to achieve the best results for himself. But he deserved to be the President of T-Unlimited Trading Company, the one who had always gotten rid of the roots of a problem by only bearing the minimum losses.
DongFang Yu heard ruefully as Xiao Yun expressed his intention to transfer a subsidiary company and some of his potential business projects under the Yang family’s name. She stared at Yang QiQi in fear as she felt that she might open her mouth again to grab the opportunity and ask for more compensation. However this was obviously the idea of only DongFang Yu, a former-common citizen.
“I don’t think I suffered any losses from the cancellation of our engagement. But,” Yang QiQi smiled indifferently, “the compensation should be given to the Yang family. Therefore, the representative of our family will choose a day to negotiate these specific compensation matters with you. I took a leave of five hours only, so I need to hurry back to the camp. I will take my leave first, President Xiao.” Yang QiQi nodded her head slightly and got up to leave.
As he watched his ex-fiancée saying goodbye without any affection like a total stranger, a queer emotion arose in Xiao Yun’s heart. He felt a little suffocated and empty somewhere in his chest and suddenly blurted out, “QiQi, will we still be friends in the future?”
When she heard Xiao Yun say this, DongFang Yu’s heart sank. Maybe Xiao Yun didn’t identify his feelings, but she knew that Xiao Yun didn’t feel nothing for Yang QiQi. Maybe, its because they knew each other from childhood and their marriage was arranged by both families, he felt restrained and depressed. And as a result, he developed a rebellious mentality.
Coincidentally, he encountered DongFang Yu whose fragility juxtaposed Yang QiQi’s perfection exactly at that particular period of time. Her dependence on him greatly satisfied Xiao Yun’s desire to protect as a man. Unlike Yang QiQi’s self-reliance, he strongly felt needed by DongFang Yu’s constant dependence on him. He had always regarded this satisfaction as ‘love’, but what will happen once he realizes his true feelings? As long as he was given enough time, he will wake up from his stupor sooner or later, won’t he?
DongFang Yu’s eyes widened. She clenched her fists and cried out in her mind, ‘Xiao Yun is MINE! I will never allow him to leave me!’
Yang QiQi was stunned. She turned to look at the man in front of her, who was telling how affectionate he was with another woman until a moment ago, with a strange look. At this time, there was a strong emotion akin to attachment in his eyes.
Xiao Yun was also taken aback by the words he blurted out. A faint red flush rose on his face, and he immediately added: “After all, the Xiao family and the Yang family are acquaintances. Even if we can’t become a couple, we can also be friends.”
Yang QiQi just smiled without any words. Her white teeth and red lips complemented each other very well and paired with the extremely delicate face, she almost blinded the eyes of the reporters present. Xiao Yun was also surprised. When the crowd was in a daze, she walked away. Her curvaceous figure was upright which successfully portrayed her strict upbringing and military career.
