Chapter 126: Qualification
Huo Tian raised her delicate little fist and waved it in front of Si Huan to express her opinion.
Si Yuan understood her intentions and felt slightly relieved. It was good that he was not thrown out of the banquet in public. At least his face was saved.
However, he was still unconvinced and could not help but let out a yawn. “Heh, you’re raising your soft little fist. What do you want to do to me, to tickle me?”
Huo Tian did not get angry at Si Yuan’s provocation. Instead, she smiled at him with her teeth bared.
She faced Si Huan again and asked with her eyes if she could act according to her thoughts.
Si Huan was conflicted. In the end, he said helplessly, “You still remember the criminal law book I gave you, right? Take it easy. It’s not easy to clean up a mess in front of everyone.”
“Don’t worry.” Huo Tian smiled sweetly, but the words she said made people’s hearts turn cold. “I saw a piece of news two days ago. A girl who studied medicine stabbed her cheating boyfriend eight times. In the end, she was only assessed to suffer from light injuries I’ve already checked. It’s not easy to get into trouble if one were to beat up another person’s ribs.”
Two security guards had Si Yuan locked. He looked at Huo Tian, who was closing in on him, and panic welled up in his heart. She was clearly just a little girl who had not fully developed, but why were her words so scary?
Si Yuan wanted to run, but he couldn’t. After a while, Huo Tian stood in front of him. She raised her soft and powerless little fist and hit Si Yuan’s ribs hard.
Si Yuan only felt an intense pain in his ribs. At this moment, he could not even let out a cry of pain. The veins on his forehead had even popped out.
If it were not for the two security guards holding his arms, Si Yuan would probably have slid to his knees.
“Little Yuan? Little Yuan, what’s wrong?” A woman’s voice rang anxiously.
Following that, a well-dressed middle-aged woman rushed out of the banquet hall. She was Si Yuan’s mother and also Si Huan’s distant grandmother. According to the seniority from the side of the family of Si Yuan’s father, she was respectfully called Seventh Madam.
This Seventh Madam’s heart ached as she checked on Si Yuan, who was in so much pain that he could not speak. However, in front of everyone, she could not remove Si Yuan’s clothes and could only feel anxious.
In a moment of desperation, she wanted to seek justice for her son.
She glared at Si Huan and questioned him with a trembling voice, “Si Huan, I know you’ve never liked us people from the branch families, but Si Yuan is your uncle after all. Why are you dissatisfied with us that you have to give him such a big embarrassment at such an occasion?!”
Huo Tian waved her hand at this pitiful, middle-aged lady. “Hello, auntie. The person who hit your son is here. Even if you want an explanation, you’ve gone to the wrong person!”
Seventh Madam felt like vomiting blood. It wasn’t as if she didn’t have eyes. Of course, she saw that the person who had hit Si Yuan was this little girl beside Si Huan, but what strength could this little girl have? Her son’s painful expression was definitely just an act. Wasn’t his motive to pressure Si Huan? What was she supposed to say to this little girl who came out of nowhere? Would she be able to get shares for the Si Corporation’s energy and shipping companies?
She glared at Huo Tian. “You’re just a plaything next to Si Huan. What right do you have to talk to me like that?”
Huo Tian was someone who must shoot if there was something for her to lash out at. “Can’t I talk to you as long as I have a mouth? One need to get a qualification certificate for that? Then you can be the world’s richest person just by selling the certificates, right?”
“You…” Seventh Madam was so angry that her face turned pale. She snorted.” Do you think you can strut around in front of us who are from the branch families just because you’ve managed to make Si Huan happy with your glib tongue? Si Huan, if you don’t give us an explanation today, we and the other people from the branch families won’t let the matter rest! ”
“Oh, I wonder what bargaining chips do Seventh Grandaunt have that can allow you to make things difficult for me?” Si Huan’s lips curled up coldly.
“To you guys, Huo Tian is an ordinary girl without any family background. However, even if she is just here in the capacity of my dance partner, it makes her someone you can’t offend. Seventh Grandaunt, since you like to discuss qualifications, I’ll tell you clearly that you and your son are not qualified to point fingers at me or pick on my dance partner. As long as I want to, you guys won’t have the right to step into this place…”
He raised his hand and waved his finger slightly. A security guard who was on standby and ready to receive orders at any time understood what he meant and went forward to grab Si Yuan and Seventh Madam’s arms, forcefully dragging them towards the door.
“Little Huan, hey, what are you doing…” A short and slightly plump middle-aged man ran over hurriedly. He looked like he was in a difficult position and pleaded, “Little Huan, calm down. Don’t hold it against your seventh grandaunt and little uncle. If you were to chase them out, the reporters outside are going to make groundless accusations again. After the banquet ends, Little Granduncle will personally teach them a lesson. Little Huan, can you give Little Granduncle some face…”
Huo Tian raised her hand and interrupted, “Little Granduncle, like your wife, you’ve failed to figure out what’s the important point here. The one they had offended is me, so it’s more useful for you to beg me.”
