Qi Yanxi showed up with his grim face like a devil.
Jian Xin’er scrambled to her feet and was shivering so much that she forgot to cry out in pain.
“Young– Young Master Qi…” Jian Xin’er stammered. Qi Yanxi sneered. “And who do you think you are? Is Jian Enterprise doing so well that you can stick your nose into my family’s affairs now?”
Jian Xin’er’s face turned pale as she tried to explain, “But Mu Li is just a low-born bitch! Don’t you know her family…”
Qi Yanxi kicked over the desks of the first row and stared at Jian Xin’er arrogantly. “Why is a big-mouthed bitch like you still in Qixia at all?”
Jian Xin’er shuddered. It was Qixia they were talking about here… Even as a daughter of the Jian family, she still had had to pull a lot of strings to get in.
“She’s my friend. From now on, I don’t want to hear anyone saying anything unkind about her, or there will be consequences!” After those words, Qi Yanxi darted a look at Mu Li, then strode to his seat with his long legs.
An Xiaxia and Su Xiaomo went to help Mu Li up right away. Su Xiaomo asked attentively, “Do you need to go to the infirmary?”
Mu Li shook her head, “No, thanks…”
She glanced at the teenager who had stood up for her and felt more tears rush to her eyes.
Frightened by Qi Yanxi, the class all returned to their seats and got ready for the early morning reading session.
An Xiaxia was chatting quietly with Su Xiaomo sitting in front of her. “Who on earth is Qi Yanxi?”
Before Su Xiaomo could answer, she looked startled and pointed behind An Xiaxia.
Confused, An Xiaxia turned around and saw Qi Yanxi sitting down beside her with his school bag.
An Xiaxia was baffled. “This seat is taken!”
“He’s not here today, is he?” Qi Yanxi smiled smugly. “By the way, I haven’t introduced myself, have I? I’m Qi Yanxi, the heir to the Qi Group.”
Among the various business tycoons in Yu City, the Gu, Sheng, Qi, and Ye groups were the biggest four.
The Qi Group was known for its great wealth, running businesses from real estate, finance, and department stores, to schools and hospitals.
An Xiaxia drew in her breath. “As in that Qi Group with many many houses… and many many properties…”
“Why, so you do know my family very well.” Qi Yanxi raised an eyebrow. “That’s correct. And this school is also ours. Hm… Qixia, Qixia. So that’s my family name with your given name. Tsk, it seems we were meant to know each other.”
The corner of An Xiaxia’s mouth twitched and she pretended to go back to her reading while trying very hard to digest the fact that Qi Yanxi was not some upstart as she had thought…
Qi Yanxi whistled and put his head on his palm, and stared at An Xiaxia unblinkingly.
When An Xiaxia blocked his sight with a book, he drew the book away. An Xiaxia then tried to sit somewhere else, at which he said unhurriedly, “Do that and I can’t promise what will happen.” An Xiaxia immediately sat down without a fight.
Su Xiaomo couldn’t take it anymore and came at him, waving her fists. “Don’t you dare bully my Dummy Xia! I know how to get physical!”
Qi Yanxi grabbed her wrist and twisted her arm behind her back, and Su Xiaomo surrendered right away.
“Have mercy, my hero. Do whatever you want with this Dummy Xia.” Su Xiaomo immediately put on an obsequious smile.
An Xiaxia watched this in despair; friendship nowadays was so fragile!
Qi Yanxi smiled roguishly. “Dummy Xia? That’s a nice one. But from now on, I’m the only one who can call her that!”
