To Sheng Yize, that was a thunderbolt out of a clear sky.
He said in a grave tone, “Xiaxia…”
An Xiaxia cut him off. “That’s okay, you don’t have to explain anything.” She managed to keep her tone lighthearted. “I told you once: if you like someone else, just tell me. I won’t stalk you.”
She hung up after that.
The nude picture Song Qingchen had sent was still on her phone… An Yibei had called her to confirm her speculation…
Those two had really…
She knew Sheng Yize had gone to the Song family home, so she had found an excuse to have An Yibei pick him up. Having nothing better to do, Qi Yanxi had gone along with An Yibei.
If Song Qingchen was lying, it would be easily exposed.
However, An Yibei said that he saw Sheng Yize in bed with Song Qingchen, both without any clothes on.
An Xiaxia felt like a hole had been dug out of her chest, and as the blood gushed out, salt was sprinkled all over it.
Betrayal was the most unbearable agony in a relationship.
An Xiaxia huddled under her duvet and cried quietly. Only the slight shiver of the duvet revealed how sad she was.
The Song family.
Sheng Yize pursed his lips and gave a brief explanation to Mr. Song. He then left in a hurry in his Porsche.
Mr. Song was infuriated. Clenching his fists, he said, “Songsong… I will settle this account for you!”
“Daddy, Brother Ah Ze already likes someone else… What am I to him? I should just leave! He will never want to see me again!” Song Qingchen wiped her tears while Mr. Song said harshly, “How dare he! You’re not leaving until he gives me an explanation for this! If he keeps up this attitude, I’ll go pay the Sheng family a visit!”
“Thank you, daddy… Daddy, you’re the best…” There was now a gloating look in Song Qingchen’s eyes, which were red from all her weeping.
When Sheng Yize arrived, An Xiaxia’s bed was already empty.
The nurse told him that someone had gone through the discharge procedure for her and she had been signed out.
Sheng Yize looked exhausted when he nodded at that. He then tried to guess where An Xiaxia could have gone.
After much consideration, the most likely answer was: the An family home.
Her wound didn’t require hospitalization anymore, and Papa An used to be a surgeon himself, so he would be amply capable of taking care of her.
At that thought, he headed for the An family home right away.
The cafe on the first floor had the “closed” sign out. He pushed the door open and found An Yibei working on his laptop with a cup of coffee at the table.
Seeing him come in, An Yibei said coldly, “You’re not welcome here. Get out!”
“Where’s Xiaxia?” Sheng Yize asked.
All he had to do now was find An Xiaxia and explain everything.
“She doesn’t want to see you herself and I think you should respect her decision. It’s just puppy love. Why not just shake hands and part as friends?” An Yibei said mockingly. Sheng Yize’s face darkened. He strode away and was going to go upstairs.
An Yibei’s indifferent comment made him stop abruptly. “Xiaxia said, if you insist on seeing her, she would rather die.”
Sheng Yize withdrew his foot right away and clenched his fists.
He could live with Xiaxia hitting him or shouting at him, but he couldn’t risk her life.
What if Xiaxia really did something impulsively to hurt herself?
“Go back. And don’t come again. There’s no room for ex-boyfriends under this roof.” An Yibei’s tongue had never seemed this sharp. Sheng Yize took a deep breath, went up to him, and bowed. “Brother An, I don’t know how to explain this, but I’ve never done anything to hurt Xiaxia!”
