Chapter 112: It Was Her Who Won the Prize

There was a smug look in Xia Qinghan’s eyes at the mention of Xia Xibei.

“She hasn’t signed the contract yet.” She concealed her smugness very quickly, however. “I told you guys before, you can only sign the contract after gaining your parent’s approval. There’s been no response from her up till now.”

Liu Zhijing chortled, “Parent’s approval? Then she might as well forget about it!”

There was no way Xia Xibei’s parents would approve of it, let alone give her their signature.

“But that doesn’t make a big difference. Once she turns 18, she can make her own decisions,” Xia Qinghan said.

“Haha,” Tao Yueying sneered, “She’ll be far behind you by the time she turns 18. She won’t be able to catch up to you even if she rides a horse!”

“Don’t say that, I think she’s pretty capable,” Xia Qinghan said.

“That’s an overstatement!” Tao Yueying was very contemptuous. “You started learning all sorts of skills and talents when you were young. How could she even compare to you? Moreover, you’ll join the company a half year ahead of her, which is enough to make her lag behind you even more!”

Xia Qinghan found her words very pleasant to the ear.

Still, she replied humbly, “It’s hard to say.”

“What’s so hard to say?” Liu Zhijing snorted. “Don’t worry, I guarantee that she will be no match for you!”

When she saw the grim, callous look in Liu Zhijing’s eyes, Xia Qinghan lowered her head to conceal her delight.

There was an unsurpassable distance between her and Xia Xibei. There was no way Xia Xibei could ever catch up to her!

So what if she did a little better than her in the exams?

Once she became a celebrity, Xia Xibei would never be able to keep pace with her.

Even if Xia Xibei did join the company afterwards, it would be useless. Ss Bai Meixue had told her, the company wasn’t a place to fool around at!

That night, Liu Zhijing spoke up in feigned casualty while her family was having dinner.

“Mom, have you heard about the winner at the new hypermarket on Dongfeng Street who won two special prizes?”

“Of course I have!”

Liu Zhijing’s mother, Tian Meiyun, nodded right away, her eyes lighting up.

“Who doesn’t know about it!”

It was two special prizes that she had won!

“I heard that it was the same person who won the prizes!” her father, Liu Jiayang, chimed in.

It was a major piece of news!

“She’s so lucky, isn’t she!” Tian Meiyun said enviously. “How I wish we could have hit the jackpot!”

“I even heard that the person didn’t want the cars, but had it converted to cash instead.” Liu Jiayang seemed to know even more than Tian Meiyun did.

“It still makes people envious, whether it was converted to cash or not…” Tian Meiyun mused.

“Do you know who won the prizes?” Liu Zhijing asked.

“I heard that it was a high school girl,” Tian Meiyun replied.

“In fact, we know that person.”

“Huh?” Tian Meiyun and Liu Jiayang were both taken aback. “We do?”

“Yes, we do,” Liu Zhijing nodded.

“It can’t be someone next door, can it?” The two of them exchanged glances.

If it was their neighbor who had won the prizes, it would have roused a great deal of hubbub by now.

“No,” Liu Zhijing shook her head, “It’s Xia Xibei, my uncle-in-law’s daughter.”

“What?!” The two of them were deeply shocked. “You aren’t mistaken, are you?”

They didn’t have much of an impression of Xia Xibei. All that they remembered about her was having met her once when Xia Shahai got married the last time, but they hadn’t had any interaction with her since then.

If Liu Zhijing hadn’t brought the topic up, they wouldn’t even have thought of her!

“Of course not!” Liu Zhijing exclaimed, looking firm and steadfast. “My friend’s father is the manager of that hypermarket, and it was him who converted the cars into cash for Xia Xibei! She earned over 400 thousand yuan from the two cars!”

“Over 400 thousand?!” the two of them gasped.
