Qiao Yanjue couldn’t help but frown. The reason he dealt with this matter so quickly was partly because of Xia Xibei.
She was a young woman living in such a terrible place; it would be great if she could change housing.
Too bad that he hadn’t thought of this latest development.
He knew that Xia Xibei had a bad relationship with her parents, and he didn’t take them into consideration.
But he had also forgotten that she was not an adult yet and could not handle many things on her own.
While he was embarrassed, Qiao Yanjue’s secretary came back with several bags in his hands, all of which seemed quite heavy.
Xia Xibei glanced at the bags. They were from the two stores she had shopped at earlier.
But this was too much!
Qiao Yanjue coughed slightly, took all the bags, and put them on the table in front of Xia Xibei.
“These are all for you.”
Xia Xibei looked over them, stunned.
Song Jiaren had given her five pieces of clothing before, but there were at least 50 items here!
Did Qiao Yanjue’s secretary buy out the entire store?
“If this isn’t enough, I’ll have people get more for you.”
Qiao Yanjue’s lavish words made Xia Xibei’s mouth twitch.
She flipped through the price tags and marveled at the figure stated.
He was definitely a rich person—for him, buying these many clothes was like buying some scallions.
Both of these stores were light luxury brands. The cheapest pieces of clothing were in the four figures, while the most expensive ones were in the five figures.
All in all, he had spent more than 100 thousand yuan!
Xia Xibei frowned, “I don’t need so much.”
She only kept two bags, pushing away the rest. “You can return these.”
“You don’t like them?” Qiao Yanjue glanced at the bags.
“I do, but I don’t need them.”
“Since you like them, keep them. I owe you anyway,” Qiao Yanjue argued, pushing the clothing back towards her again.
“You don’t owe me this much.”
Xia Xibei felt that her skin was not thick enough to accept such an extravagant purchase.
“Didn’t you save me again? This is a thank you gift,” Qiao Yanjue insisted.
“A thank you gift?” Xia Xibei was speechless. If she had a choice, she really wouldn’t have “saved” him.
Besides, even if she hadn’t made a move, he still would have been fine.
“Yes,” Qiao Yanjue nodded, “My life is pretty valuable.”
Xia Xibei was speechless.
Before she could speak, Qiao Yanjue changed the subject. “It’s late. I’ll take you back.”
It was past ten o’clock, and by the time she got home, it would be at least eleven o’clock.
“No, I can go back by myself,” Xia Xibei refused.
“I’ll take you back.”
Qiao Yanjue made a decision on his own, asking someone to prepare a car.
Inadvertently, his attitude was a bit tough, showing his usual uncompromising temperament.
Xia Xibei’s face suddenly sank. What she hated most was others treating her with such a strong attitude.
“No, I can go by myself. Please don’t be bothered!” Her tone was firm and her gaze turned cool.
Qiao Yanjue’s heart jumped, his face changing slightly.
Although he hadn’t spent much time with Xia Xibei, after dealing with her several times, he mostly understood her character now.
Unlike other girls, who were gentle and cute, her character was very tough.
If he had a tough attitude too, it would definitely be as tragic as Mars hitting the earth.
Thinking back to the conversations they had earlier… They were lessons to him!
Qiao Yanjue took a deep breath, his strong tone immediately softening.
“You have helped me so much today, I just want to thank you by taking you back. You won’t even give me this opportunity?”
