Song Yishi took a look at it and smiled. “Mrs. Qin, I think someone is slandering Huo Mian on purpose. I don’t think she’s like that. If she was, Qin Chu would’ve seen through her a long time ago. Oh, and…you shouldn’t say bad things about Huo Mian in front of the media. After all, she’s your daughter-in-law, and we should never air our dirty laundry in front of others… You should think about your family, Mrs. Qin… You’re so nice, but people might take advantage of your impulsivity.”
“See? Yishi has a very good point. I told you not to say anything, but you wouldn’t listen and kept saying nonsense to those reporters. That’s why our son is mad,” Qin Yumin immediately began blaming his wife upon hearing what Song Yishi said.
“I was telling the truth, alright? I’m not wrong about her.” Mrs. Qin rolled her eyes at her husband.
“Mrs. Qin, there’s nothing wrong with the truth, but we have to be considerate of the bigger picture. We shouldn’t make Qin Chu’s life harder than it already is. He’s already so busy at work, so we shouldn’t make him come home to all this. I’m worried about him.”
“Yishi, you’re a great girl, and you always have Qin Chu on your mind, unlike that selfish, coldblooded wife of his. My son treats her and her family like royalty, but so what? In the end, she’s still constantly seducing other men. Anyways, I don’t and will never like her.”
To suck up to Song Yishi, Mrs. Qin kept saying bad things about Huo Mian.
However, Song Yishi was smart enough to know that she should never talk smack about Huo Mian in front of other people.
Rather, she defended Huo Mian. This way, others would see her as the most empathetic woman alive.
Even Qin Chu had no idea what she was trying to do. That was why she was so brilliant.
Huo Mian originally wanted to go to the pedestrian street on her day off.
Huo Mian was delighted to hear the finance department say that the 13 shops under her name were doing well.
She recalled these storefronts out of anger, but brought them back to life…
That street was now one of the city’s busiest commercial areas, and business was surprisingly good.
However, due to all the rumors flying around, she couldn’t leave the manor.
There were so many media outlets and paparazzi following her; if she was photographed eating noodles, they would probably make it seem like she was secretly meeting her lover or something.
Therefore, she decided to take out a style magazine, do some reading, water some flowers, and drink some tea.
To her surprise, however, Jiang Xiaowei came.
She drove herself here in that low-profile Lexus.
After security told Huo Mian that Jiang Xiaowei was here, she immediately let the latter in.
Then, she ran out to greet that domineering pregnant woman.
“Why are you here? You didn’t tell me beforehand.” Huo Mian looked at Jiang Xiaowei in pleasant surprise.
“I was bored at home, so I decided to come to see you.”
Then, they went upstairs to the rooftop. The maid brought them some fruit, scented tea, macarons, and tiramisu.
Jiang Xiaowei sat on a rocking chair, looked at the scenery in front of her, and exclaimed, “Your mansion is awesome… 400 million is completely worth it, I would pay up to 800 million to wake up to this every day. It’s like heaven on earth.”
“If you like it, you should ask Wei Liao to build you one. The Wei Family has plenty of money.” Huo Mian laughed.
“Never mind, he doesn’t have the time. My child will probably be going off to school by the time construction finishes.”
“Hahaha…” Huo Mian always enjoyed talking to Jiang Xiaowei.
She didn’t have a filter, and her domineering and cute personality was very compatible with Huo Mian’s.
Jiang Xiaowei scrolled through Weibo and asked unintentionally, “Have you been on Weibo recently? News about you completely blew up. You were pushed to Weibo’s ‘hot topics’ list and have been there for 24 hours.”
“Haha… I’m that popular?” Huo Mian believed that as of right now, she was probably more popular than some of the celebrities under GK.
The hot topics list was updated every 10 minutes. How much attention was being paid to her if she had been on there for 24 hours straight?
“The person slandering you is interesting… They want public opinion to push you off the cliff… or maybe they want Qin Chu to lose trust in you, what do you think?”
Then, Jiang Xiaowei logged onto her other Weibo account, ‘B*tch-Conqueror’.
