1608 Still Trying to Play Dumb
Qiao Nian said lazily, “Oh, what’s the truth behind it?”
Qi Yan was speechless.
When had she ever suffered such humiliation!
Qi Yan’s eyelids twitched.
However, she still understood the principle that one had to bow their head under the eaves.
She gritted her teeth and forced herself to force a smile. “Lanyin doesn’t know anything about Young Master Jiang.
“I was the one who arranged what happened with Young Master Jiang from the beginning to the end. I only used her account to transfer the money in the end.”
At that time, she had also considered Qi Lanyin’s age and the Qi family’s overseas influence. She thought that even if Qiao Nian found out about it, she wouldn’t be able to do anything to an overseas student like Lanyin.
Who knew that Qiao Nian would be so ruthless?
She could even find someone to take Qi Lanyin away from Country M.
Qi Yan was forced into a corner. She couldn’t care less about her face and said in a low voice, “I’ve already learned that I’m no longer a member of the royal family. I’ll also transfer all the money you asked me to prepare into your account according to your request… Miss Qiao, forgive me wherever possible. I’ve already paid the price. Can you be magnanimous and let the Qi family off?”
Qiao Nian glanced at her and smiled. “Qi Yan, did you forget something else?”
Qi Yan looked, not knowing what she was talking about.
Qiao Nian helped her recall. “You only admitted about my brother’s fall. Have you forgotten my car accident?”
Qi Yan’s expression suddenly changed, and her eyes flickered violently. She pretended to be surprised. “Miss Qiao was in a car accident before? Are you alright?”
Qiao Nian looked at her with a faint smile.
Those eyes seemed to see through her panic.
Qi Yan’s heart skipped a beat.
She forced herself to be calm and refused to admit it. “I’ve only been in Beijing for a short time. I’ve been staying in Continent O and don’t know much about domestic affairs. I’ve never heard that you were in a car accident…”
Qi Yan was still pretending. “Was this car accident a plot or…?”
Qiao Nian admired her a little. The corners of her lips curled up, her eyes mocking and cold. “A plot. What a coincidence. The results of my investigation traced back to your Qi family again.”
There was some silence.
Qi Yan’s scalp went numb and she couldn’t say a word.
She had miscalculated Qiao Nian’s accident. She had instructed that fool Madam Zhu to do it. In order to avenge her son, that fool was instigated to get someone to give Qiao Nian a scare. That fool had even taken the blame for her.
It led her to think that the car accident was over.
She hadn’t expected Qiao Nian to find out about it.
No matter how knowledgeable Qi Yan was and how calm she was, she didn’t know how to deal with the current situation. “This matter… i-is…”
She couldn’t come up with a reason after ‘is’.
“This matter is a misunderstanding.”
Qi Yan tried her best to calm herself down, but her fingernails were about to break. “You know about the incident in the illegal district… I-I definitely felt uncomfortable, but I didn’t expect Madam Zhu to be so bold.”
“Qi Yan, you didn’t expect me to escape so safely, right?”
Qiao Nian interrupted her. She was willing to come down to see Qi Yan because she wanted her to die knowing what she did wrong. This way, she wouldn’t have to look for connections all day long and find Jiang Xianrou and Jiang Zongnan or harass Jiang Li or even Old Master Jiang.
Otherwise, she wouldn’t have come down to meet Qi Yan.
Qiao Nian had always kept a straight face, but now, her eyes were filled with anger. “You didn’t expect me to escape, so you’re thinking of dealing with my brother. Qi Yan, what are you trying to do? Are you using my brother to warn me?”
