Xiang Haotian’s heart skipped a beat when he heard that.
The smile on his face couldn’t be maintained any longer.
He hurriedly apologized, “I know that you might not believe me, but I really didn’t know about this matter… this time, when I came to look for you, she only said that she hadn’t seen you for a long time and wanted to see you. If I knew that she had this idea, I definitely would have stopped that girl…”
Chu Yan didn’t say anything. He just stood up and prepared to leave.
It was obvious that he didn’t believe his words.
He didn’t want to continue listening to his nonsense.
Xiang Haotian was a little anxious.
He immediately shouted, “Chu Yan, my sister is demure, gentle, and sensible. More importantly, she really likes you…”
“Then that means I have to marry her?”
Chu Yan interrupted him and looked at Xiang Haotian indifferently, but with an extremely dangerous coldness.
Xiang Haotian met his eyes and was shocked. “…”
“Do you think that if it weren’t for the accident just now, your plan tonight would have succeeded?” Chu Yan spoke again with a hint of mockery in his tone.
He sneered. “You should thank him for making today’s matter come to a successful end.”
Cold sweat broke out on Xiang Haotian’s forehead.
He quietly watched Chu Yan leave the private room. His body went limp and he fell back on the sofa.
The matter of the cooperation was ruined, and even their relationship was ruined.
If Chu Yan doesn’t help him, he wouldn’t be able to compete with his big brother for the management rights of the Xiang Corporation.
He had originally thought that if Chu Yan could become his brother-in-law..
But now, everything had been messed up.
The bathroom door was pushed open and Xiang Qingtian came out.
After throwing up, she looked extremely tired. Her pale face looked as if a layer of skin had just peeled off.
When she saw that only Xiang Haotian was left in the private room, she bit her lip hard. “Brother, what do we do now? If Chu Yan doesn’t stand by us, then the control of the company will definitely fall into big brother’s hands.”
Xiang Haotian’s face darkened as he scolded angrily, “Who asked you to come up with such a despicable move?”
Xiang Qingtian felt wronged after being criticized. This plan wasn’t solely her own idea. She liked Chu Yan and wanted to marry Chu Yan, so she came up with this plan to kill two birds with one stone.
However, when she told Xiang Haotian at that time, he didn’t object.
In the end, it was all that Ye Qingran’s fault.
If it weren’t for him, she would have been with Chu Yan by now!
“It’s all that kid’s fault. If it weren’t for him, our plan tonight would have succeeded. We definitely can’t let that kid have a good time. He actually wanted to spy on me.” Xiang Qingtian was full of contempt for Ye Qingran.
She thought about how he kept trying to please her, but in the end, he made her drink that glass of drugged wine.
She felt a sense of disgust from being violated.
She wanted to take revenge on Ye Qingran. She wanted to vent all the grievances she had suffered tonight on Ye Qingran.
Xiang Haotian berated, “You didn’t hear what Chu Yan said just now.”
She had been vomiting all this while. Later on, she vaguely heard Chu Yan say that they should thank Ye Qingran for bringing the matter to a successful end.
Xiang Qingtian’s heart sank. She guessed, “Chu Yan said that on purpose to protect that kid.”
“What else could it be? Why did he suddenly say that? Besides, we’re in trouble now. Even if we hate that kid, we can’t touch him,” Xiang Haotian said.
Xiang Qingtian was still indignant.
Ye Qingran’s beautiful face appeared in her mind. No matter how she looked at it, she felt that he looked like a sissy.
“Brother, Chu Yan was never like this in the past. He actually said that specifically to warn us not to target Ye Qingran. Could it be that the rumors are true? Chu Yan really likes men. He and that kid…”
“How is that possible?” Xiang Haotian cut her off.
He and Chu Yan had been classmates for three years. He clearly understood that Chu Yan’s indifference wasn’t just towards women alone.
It was directed at everyone.
“He spoke up because that kid sabotaged us because of him. In return, of course he has to protect that kid. I’m warning you, our current situation is very bad. You must not provoke that kid again. If Chu Yan finds out, then we will really lose to Big Brother.” Xiang Haotian frowned. “As for that brat, if you really feel that you can’t take it lying down, you can just come back and deal with him once the matter is settled!”
Xiang Qingtian didn’t say anything this time.
The refreshing feeling that she felt after vomiting quickly disappeared. She said uncomfortably, “Brother, it’s too late now. Even if I vomited, it was too late. Hurry up and let’s go to the hospital.”
While Ye Qingran and He Cizhou were waiting for Chu Yan outside, Ye Qingran sent Liu Renwei a message saying that she back first.
After a while, Chu Yan came out and the three of them left the Dragon Palace together.
He Cizhou didn’t go with Chu Yan. He asked a designated driver to send him back.
Chu Yan didn’t drink much and drove himself.
Ye Qingran got in the car and realized that it wasn’t the same car as before. She asked casually, “Hey, you changed cars.”
Chu Yan replied, “That day’s car was He Cizhou’s car.”
Ye Qingran smiled. “It was his, I see…”
At that time, she was wondering why Chu Yan liked Jiang Ling’s songs.
It wasn’t that Jiang Ling’s songs weren’t nice to listen to, but it really didn’t match the aura he gave off.
Chu Yan drove all the way forward.
The car was very quiet. Chu Yan was expressionless, but he gave off a cold aura.
Ye Qingran could feel that Chu Yan’s attitude towards her seemed to have changed.
Chu Yan had discovered something…
When they were about to reach their place, Chu Yan suddenly parked the car under a tree by the roadside. He turned around and looked at Ye Qingran. “How did you know that there was a drug in the wine?”
Ye Qingran’s almond-shaped eyes widened as she looked at him in disbelief.
She suppressed her voice and said in shock, “No way! There really was a drug in that cup of wine? I’m actually so amazing that I hit the nail on the head with just a casual sentence.”
The person across from her ignored her.
His deep eyes were calm and emotionless, making it impossible for anyone to see any emotions.
It seemed that it was possible to play dumb in front of He Cizhou and get away with it.
However, it was completely impossible in front of Chu Yan.
Ye Qingran smiled and raised her eyebrows. “If I said that, would you believe me?”
Chu Yan asked her back, “What do you think?”
Ye Qingran shook her head. “I don’t know. He Cizhou said that I was too reckless. Fortunately, you were there. Otherwise, I would have gotten myself into trouble. So, I didn’t save you, but brought you trouble instead?”
He Cizhou thanked her.
But hoping that she wouldn’t get involved in Chu Yan’s matter so as not to harm herself, he also advised her earnestly.
He didn’t say it out loud.
But she could grasp it.
This made Ye Qingran curious about Chu Yan’s identity and who this man was.
Why would it bring her danger if she interfered in his affairs?
At the same time, she immediately thought of herself, as the only heir of the Ye family, no matter how well the family protected her, she had experienced many dangers since she was young.
She had faced life and death several times.
