Jian Xin’er fell to the ground in a sorry heap. As she gasped for air, she reminded one of a fish out of water. Her face was pale green in color and her eyes were filled with horror.
Jesus Christ… All this time she had taken Sheng Yize for one of those otherworldly idols, but from his demeanor just then, he was nothing but a devil!
A cold-blooded devil!
He might actually… think about killing her…
Jian Xin’er huddled under a table in fear at that thought.
Sheng Yize, on the other hand, clapped his hands clean and went back to An Xiaxia, the smile on his face gentle and indulgent. “What’s wrong?”
An Xiaxia seemed frightened by what he had done and needed a moment to collect her thoughts. She then bellowed at him, “Sheng Yize! Do you think you’re Batman or what?! A dog bit you and your reaction is to bite it back? Killing her sure would feel great, but it’ll make you a criminal! You, you… you idiot!”
She had summoned up all the courage she could find to tell Sheng Yize off. However, she was already shrinking back from him, fearing that she might become his next target with his foul mood at the moment.
Sheng Yize looked a little dejected at those words.
“I was impulsive… What do you think I should do now?”
Since An Xiaxia didn’t like that way of handling things, he would do what she wanted. He didn’t want her to worry.
An Xiaxia gave it some thought and frowned. “How about calling the police? They’ll decide what to do with her.”
“Of course.” Sheng Yize nodded and said, “I’ll get some fresh air outside.”
Sheng Yize walked out and took a deep breath. Qi Yanxi, who was standing the closest to An Xiaxia, pursed his lips and mocked him. “You old man. A little action and you can’t catch your breath…”
An Xiaxia picked up her phone and tapped “110.” However, before she could dial the number, Su Xiaomo cried out, “Xiaxia, Qi Yanxi, watch out!”
An Xiaxia looked up in a hurry and saw that Jian Xin’er, who had seemed so weak just then, was now like Popeye after eating his spinach! She had picked up a barbecue rack off an empty table and smashed it down on An Xiaxia!
The burning hatred in her eyes looked almost tangible!
Why was An Xiaxia able to win Sheng Yize’s heart?
Why was An Xiaxia able to get Sheng Yize to kick her out of Qixia?
She was supposed to have all the praise and attention. It was because of An Xiaxia that she had been deprived of all that!
She would never accept that fate! Not over her dead body!
Since she couldn’t have what she wanted, no one would!
The huge rack whooshed at An Xiaxia, smashing down on her.
Sheng Yize’s face was drained of all color. He hurried toward An Xiaxia, but couldn’t get there in time.
At that crucial moment, Qi Yanxi grabbed An Xiaxia and pulled her behind him. He then took the full impact of the rack.
The rack smashed on his back with a loud bang. He let out a muffled moan and swayed, almost losing his balance.
Both An Xiaxia and Su Xiaomo couldn’t help but cry out. Sheng Yize then strode over and asked with a frown, “Are you ok?”
Qi Yanxi gritted his teeth. “Screw you — you even have to count on me to save your girlfriend…”
An Xiaxia was flustered. “Qi Yanxi, are you alright? Let me check your injury…”
Qi Yanxi dodged before her hands reached him. He swung around with a murderous look in his eyes and sneered at Jian Xin’er. “Why, I see you’ve got some strength in you. Did you just hit me with that thing?”
Jian Xin’er was white as a sheet and huddled in a heap. Qi Yanxi closed in on her, looking very grim. “Damn it. Didn’t I tell you before? Hitting a woman isn’t off limits for me!”
