Their expressions changed after Xi Xiaye spoke.
“What are you going to do about that woman spilling the drinks onto me, huh?”
That person who was addressed as Bro Jun certainly had no idea who Xi Xiaye was. A faint light flashed in his eyes when he saw Xi Xiaye’s beauty. He was entranced by her and totally missed the dagger glances from Huang Shanshan beside him as he let out a wicked laugh. “You seem to be a manager here, alright. What about that? We’ll forget about what happened if you accompany us for some drinks tonight, then I’ll let it go. How does that sound, pretty girl?”
With the man’s disgusting furtive glances, Xi Xiaye frowned and coughed slightly. However, her hoarse voice was extremely cold. “Accompany you? Are you worth my time? Where do you think this is? Some street stall?”
“I’m trying to give you a chance now. Do you know who I am?”
The man was pretty crude. He was about to grab Xi Xiaye when all of a sudden, the quiet Han Yifeng went over and held him back. His voice was as cold as ice as he glanced at Huang Shanshan. “Don’t hang out with people like him anymore. Don’t you think we’ve made enough trouble already?”
He glared at the man coldly before leaving.
“Clean this up and just send them out if people like them were to come here again. Imperial Sky doesn’t need people with low standards here. If they have any issues, send them to see me at Glory World! Cough… Cough!”
Xi Xiaye was really worked up. She started coughing profusely as her pale face turned red. The sharpness in her eyes made Sun Mei and the rest shudder, but before they could react, she turned around and left.
“Yes, Director Xi!”
It was the prime time at night, and she could hear the deafening music coming from the hall ahead as she walked through the corridor. Xi Xiaye looked for Xiao Yu and then left after she spoke to him. She felt even worse now after the incident, so she just wanted to go home and rest. Although she tried to call Mu Lingshi, it did not get through. In the end, she gave up and walked toward her car slowly.
She was surprised to see a hulking figure waiting for her by her car.
It had been some time since they met. She had once loved him so much, but her heart was calm even when he was right before her. When she saw him, there was but another person in her mind.
As Han Yifeng was about to say something, Xi Xiaye spoke first, “Long time no see.”
Her tone was calm and distant like she was just talking to a normal friend. That tone of voice made Han Yifeng felt insignificant, but he had no excuse to earn a cheerful greeting from her.
After some struggle, he clenched his fists and released them. He nodded and replied with a bitter smile, “Long time no see. How are you doing?”
“I’m okay. Thanks for asking,” she replied as she took out her car keys. She unlocked the car and was about to get inside.
“Wait, Xiaye!” Han Yifeng abruptly called out to her. He just looked at her slender figure in silence.
Xi Xiaye stopped as her back faced him, but she did not say anything.
“If… If we both try to go back to the past, would you…?”
“I don’t want to go back to the past, and I don’t like the words ‘if’.”
Before he could finish his sentence, Xi Xiaye interrupted him halfway and turned around. She looked at him grimly under the dim streetlights while her tone was cold. “I know a lot of things have happened recently, a lot of which you find unacceptable, but you’ll have to bear the consequences of your choices. You’re still pretty lucky, especially if you know how to seize the opportunity.”
Xi Xiaye took a deep breath after several coughs, then she opened the car door.
“The Xi Xiaye in the past doesn’t exist anymore. The current Xi Xiaye…” She left him a smile before heading into the car and starting the engine swiftly.
The black car soon disappeared among the array of cars far away until he could not see it anymore.
It took Han Yifeng a long time to drag his thoughts back to reality. When he turned around, he saw Xi Xinyi who was staring at him with her cold, sharp eyes.
Xi Xinyi had been busy supervising the film production lately. With the support of Qi Kai and the Han Corporation, she managed to get things to settle down. Her baby bump was getting larger by the day, and she would give birth in a few months’ time.
She was doing very well recently. She had spent a lot of effort getting Huang Ziyao on her good side and also worked towards getting closer to Elder Han whilst being considerate about the scandal and her body. Huang Ziyao had been visiting her more frequently at the villa. Furthermore, Xi Xinyi had voluntarily offered 3% of Yueying’s share as Huang Ziyao’s birthday present, leaving a very positive impression.
She was going to be the mother to Huang Ziyao’s grandchild in the future anyway, so what else could she do even if she was flawed?
As long as Han Yifeng was happy and her grandchild could be born safely, she would be satisfied.
However, Han Yifeng had turned into another person. He seemed depressed all the time and rarely went home. According to Secretary Wang, he bought another condominium unit and had been staying there.
“Trying to go back to the past? Han Yifeng, were you going to ask Xi Xiaye if the two of you could be together again if you could turn back time and start over?”
Xi Xinyi was obviously mocking him. “I told you before. It’s impossible! Did you see that? That’s the person who said she loved you before! The man she loves now is Master Mu from Glory World, the rich and powerful Master Mu! And you, Han Yifeng, mean nothing to her! Nothing! Do you understand now? Only I, only Xi Xinyi, will treat you the same as ever, and will love you forever!”
A cold smile spread on her beautiful face. “None of us can turn back time, Yifeng. Our child is coming soon. I’ve always loved you. You could’ve just let the past go and embrace our happiness together, yet you suddenly tell me that you don’t love me anymore. Don’t you find that ridiculous?”
