After a long, sleepless night, Tao Yueying was in a very haggard state.
When she saw Xia Xibei, the look on her face changed theatrically, her eyes filling with hatred.
If Xia Xibei hadn’t made such a mess, her father wouldn’t be in this predicament right now!
Having thought of that, she fought the urge to dash forward and give Xia Xibei a hard slap.
However, they were surrounded by students at the moment. No matter how furious she was, she had to hold it in.
She didn’t move, but Xia Xibei came up to her rather unexpectedly.
“You didn’t have a good sleep last night?” She asked with a smile, as if she was close with Tao Yueying. “Oh, right, Manager Tao is your father, isn’t he? What a coincidence!”
“Stop playing the fool!” Tao Yueying grinded her teeth in anger, her eyes filled with resentment, “It’s all your fault!”
“My fault?” Xia Xibei appeared shocked and perplexed. “What do you mean? How have I done you wrong?”
Looking at her innocent look, Xia Xibei’s inner hatred grew.
“It was you who talked nonsense in front of GM Li!”
“How strange, what nonsense would I have talked about?” Xia Xibei blinked, seeming confused. “What I said yesterday were true! How about you tell me, which did I say that was nonsense? Didn’t you slander me for stealing your bracelet? Or have I wronged you?”
Looking at Xia Xibei’s kind, naive face, Tao Yueying felt that her hands were about to lose control, fighting the desire to slap her.
“You know deep down if it was nonsense or not!” She spat through gritted teeth.
“I’m clear about it. I did not say any nonsense!” Xia Xibei sounded bold and righteous, “I only spoke the truth!”
Song Jiaren’s voice came through from the distance, then she appeared before her in a heartbeat.
“Tao Yueying? What do you want?”
Song Jiaren stood in front of Xia Xibei right away, her eyes shooting daggers at Tao Yueying.
“What now? Have you not had enough lessons? Are you trying to make trouble again?”
Tao Yueying went weak instantly at the sight of Song Jiaren’s enormous figure.
“Who- Who’s trying to make trouble now! I just wanted to talk things out with Xia Xibei!”
“Talk about what?” Song Jiaren snorted. “We have nothing to talk about with you!”
Xia Xibei patted Song Jiaren on her back and took a few steps forward. “I can see that you’re really mad and anxious. Things must be very troublesome for you right now, right? Hmm… Let me guess.”
She glanced Tao Yueying up and down, and the smile on her lips deepened.
“I think your father must be in trouble, right? And… It’s caused by the conversation we had yesterday.”
“Glad that you know!” Tao Yueying spit out with rage.
“But I’m just curious… Your father could buy you such expensive things when he’s just an ordinary manager, so where did all this extra money come from?”
Tao Yueying paled instantly upon hearing what Xia Xibei said. “What- What nonsense are you talking about?!”
“Is it nonsense?” Xia Xibei looked to Song Jiaren. “Do you think what I said was wrong?”
Song Jiaren laughed, “Of course you’re right! Who would believe that there’s nothing fishy about a manager having so much money?”
Song Jiaren was quite a bright girl, after all. As she thought of the sum of money that Tao Pengqing took out previously, and Tao Yueying’s outfits and expenses, she became curious about where all the money had come from.
“Things that can give your dad a headache must be related to those finances, right?”
Tao Yueying became even paler at Xia Xibei’s words.
“Oops! If my guess is right, it seems like your dad might have to go to jail!” She snapped her fingers and put on a worried look. “Aiyo, in that case, you’ll have no more money to spend!”
Tao Yueying was shocked and angry.
“It’s better to ask someone for help, rather than standing around and chatting with me!” Xia Xibei shrugged, and gave her a conscientious suggestion, “You’re close with Xia Qinghan, aren’t you? You can find her!”
