Chapter 316: Could It Be That She Was Sober Back Then?

Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations


Back at the Mountain Villa, Xia Ning and the others got off the car. The only person in the car was Qian Feng now.


Xia Ning took a card out of her bag and gave it to him. “Take this card and report to that place. You can park my car anywhere.”


Qian Feng took the card and took a look at Xia Ning. He nodded. “Thanks a lot.” After his words, he drove away at once.


Zheng Ziming looked at the leaving car. “Asteria, what are you doing?”


“Don’t you want to know how I got out of the life and death moment? It was all thanks to that card just now.” Xia Ning finished talking and walked back to the house.


Zheng Ziming ran after her immediately. “So are you planning to develop Qian Feng?”


“I’m just giving him a chance. Whether he can succeed or not depends on himself.” Xia Ning took out her phone and turned it on.


Zheng Ziming stared at Xia Ning’s calm face and said, “Someone like Qian Feng might bite you in the end.”


Xia Ning stopped her steps and looked to Zheng Ziming. She said with a smile, “You are wrong on this. Those who’ve lost their money and social status once would be very cautious if they get them back. Because they know better than anyone else the pain of losing everything. He’s a smart guy and should not make silly mistakes. Moreover, it’s just one Qian Feng. If I can give him an opportunity, I can also take it away from him.”


Zheng Ziming nodded. She was right. It was just one Qian Feng. He thought of something suddenly and looked at Xia Ning. “So Qian Feng hates Qiao Yu a lot. It can’t be that you are planning to use Qian Feng to target Qiao Yu?”


Xia Ning’s hand on the phone paused for a second. She then walked straight ahead.


Suddenly not too far away, a familiar sound of a car was heard. Xia Ning turned back and there was blinding car light shining from that direction.


“Must be Qiao Yu. What is he doing here? Does he think he hasn’t done enough to Asteria?” Zheng Ziming said furiously. He was about to walk out but Wen Yue on the side held him back and shook her head at him. She pointed to Xia Ning with her eyes.


Zheng Ziming looked over and saw Xia Ning’s cold face. He suddenly realized something and said with a smile, “Asteria, you must be tired. Let’s go back and rest.”


Xia Ning nodded and walked inside.


Wen Yue glared at Zheng Ziming for a second. He was really rubbing his nose in it.


Zheng Ziming touched his nose. It was just a brief moment of losing control, okay?


Outside the wall of the villa, Qiao Yu and Gao Yang were sitting in the car.


“Brother, if you care about Xia Ning so much, why don’t you tell her?” Gao Yang looked at Qiao Yu next to him with confusion.


Qiao Yu stared at the front and did not speak.


“To be honest, this Xia Ning is really heartless. You’ve done so much but she’s still not moved at all!” Gao Yang said angrily. “What does she want?”


Qiao Yu’s thoughts cleared up. After a long while, he said, “It’s not enough.”


“What?” Gao Yang stared at him, baffled.


Qiao Yu said calmly, “Nothing. Go home. Oh right, where’s Mu Zichen?”


“Mu Zichen, err…” Gao Yang’s expression turned a bit unimpressed. “He’s always been boasting about being good at drinking but he went down after just a bit. I have to always remember this and make fun of him forever.”


Qiao Yu thought of something and asked, “Did Xia Ning drink a lot as well?”


Gao Yang nodded. “Yeah, I never thought she was that good at drinking. Two and a half bottles of Whiskey. That was something for a girl.”


Qiao Yu’s hands on the wheel tightened. In his head, he remembered a certain night a few years ago, when he was holding the drunk her…


Could it be that she was sober back then?
