“No… Don’t… I – I’ve done nothing…” Jian Xin’er’s futile excuses were a complete joke to the others.
Qi Yanxi grabbed her by her collar and said mercilessly, “You made a mistake and you’ll have to pay for it! I’m in such a good mood today that I’m going to teach you a lesson myself!”
Jian Xin’er struggled violently. “You’ll never get rid of me. I’ll haunt An Xiaxia forever…” She sounded as if she was conjuring the vilest curse with all the malice she could muster.
Qi Yanxi was even more enraged by this. He gave her a few kicks without holding back and picked up a chair out of habit, ready to smash it onto her head. Just then, he heard the faint sound of someone drawing in a breath, and somehow, he stopped what he was doing.
He could tell that it was An Xiaxia.
Qi Yanxi had never deemed himself a good person. However, with An Xiaxia watching, he found it impossible to smash the chair down.
Because he didn’t want her to see his savage side.
He grimaced and cursed under his breath. Tossing the chair away, he grabbed Jian Xin’er by her hair and dragged her all the way to the door.
He walked past An Xiaxia, who was already dumbfounded, and snorted. “Stop gawking. Call the police.”
“Oh…” An Xiaxia came back to herself and called the police right away.
The police arrived soon enough and took Jian Xin’er away. The incident was deemed a civil dispute, which would put her in detention for at least fifteen days.
After all the wicked things she had done, she deserved the punishment.
Once Jian Xin’er was taken care of, An Xiaxia asked Sheng Yize, “How did you two get here?”
Sheng Yize explained briefly. An Xiaxia had sent a message saying that she was having dinner here. Seeing that she still hadn’t returned after such a long time, Sheng Yize and Qi Yanxi came out to look for her.
Never did they expect to run into something like this.
Had it not been for their timely arrival, who knew what would have happened to An Xiaxia and Su Xiaomo…
Sheng Yize clutched her hand at the thought of that and commanded in a low voice, “An Xiaxia, from now on, you can’t run off like this; stay where I can see you!”
An Xiaxia said dispiritedly, “All right…”
Only then did Sheng Yize nod in satisfaction.
Su Xiaomo went back home first, while Sheng Yize and Qi Yanxi walked An Xiaxia back home together.
Qi Yanxi kept up his careless manner the whole time. When An Xiaxia asked about his injury, he only waved her off as if it was nothing.
However, as soon as they reached the An family home, his legs gave way and he fell to the ground with a thump.
“Qi Yanxi!” Everyone panicked at this. Papa An wiped his hands clean and came over to examine his wounds.
Scratches covered his back. The skin was grazed in a few places and dark red blood was oozing out. They almost couldn’t bear to look at his back and had no idea how he had managed to endure the pain.
Papa An frowned. “Xiaxia, go get my medkit. I’ll dress his wounds first.”
“Sure!” An Xiaxia was equally shocked and trotted off to get the medkit.
Just then, a couple walked into the shop.
“I’m sorry, but we’re closed for the moment.” Papa An helped Qi Yanxi to a chair and smiled apologetically at the couple.
“Heh…” The finely dressed woman snickered and complained to the middle-aged man in a suit beside her. “See? What did I tell you? Yanxi is so reckless…”
“Huh?” Papa An was baffled. Qi Yanxi then said impatiently, “What are you doing here?”
“You bastard!” The man thumped his walking stick on the floor and fumed. “Do you even know that I’m your dad?”
