On the other end came Qiao Yanjue’s slightly tired voice, “I’ve been dealing with a bit of business these last few days, so I didn’t have time to call.”
When she heard the explanation and the fatigue behind his words, Xia Xibei’s resentment dissipated.
“Were you very busy?”
Qiao Yanjue didn’t deny it.
He has flown to several places in the past few days.
In addition to handling the investments at hand, he also made a trip back home.
He told his parents that he would handle his own affairs and there was no need for them to worry.
He did not reveal this to Xia Xibei, but with his firm attitude, his parents did not continue to press him.
After all, he wasn’t that old and wasn’t in a hurry.
“I thought you’d been too happy to miss home.” Xia Xibei’s tone was unconsciously a bit sour.
Qiao Yanjue chuckled, “I’ve indeed been too happy to miss home.”
His laughter seemed to carry an electric current, making Xia Xibei’s ear tickle a little.
She couldn’t help but switch the phone to her other ear, “What do you mean?”
“Capital City is my ‘home,’ but now, I don’t want to go back to Capital City.”
Xia Xibei froze for a moment before she finally understood the meaning of this statement. Her heart could not help but jump.
If Capital City was his “home,” then the place which made him so happy he forgot to go home, would be… G City?
This late at night, she couldn’t help but feel a bit flustered and hurriedly changed the subject, “So, are you done with work now?”
Qiao Yanjue was happy hearing her panic, “Yes, I’m done being busy. See, I called you immediately.”
Xia Xibei’s heartbeat went haywire again.
“I have a flight tomorrow,” Qiao Yanjue replied, “It was supposed to be tonight, but it was too rushed.”
“Don’t hurry so much, get some rest first!” Xia Xibei said immediately.
She could hear that Qiao Yanjue’s spirits weren’t too high, “You’ve been busy for so long, you should get some rest.”
Qiao Yanjue didn’t disagree, “I was just about to rest, but I saw news about you online.”
“Oh, you mean that.” Xia Xibei finally understood where Qiao Yanjue was coming from. “Everything is settled.”
“What is going on? How did this happen?”
Qiao Yanjue was a little irritated. He was so busy these days that he didn’t have time to pay attention to what was going on online.
Of course, he didn’t think that Xia Xibei would be making these things happen online.
“It’s nothing. Actually, I was just along for the ride.”
“Tang Luo dragged you into this?” Qiao Yanjue’s voice immediately went cold.
“That’s not true.” Xia Xibei denied it, “It’s true that things were caused by his side at first, but, after that, it was us working together.”
The whole thing was instigated by Zhang Yiqi, and Zhang Yiqi was close to Xia Qinghan, so they certainly would not let her go.
Xia Xibei and Tang Luo chose to take advantage of the scheme. So far, the results had been great.
Tang Luo’s reputation was restored, and Xia Xibei also increased her popularity a lot via Xia Qinghan.
At least now everyone knew that she was much better than Xia Qinghan.
As long as Xia Qinghan was upset, she was happy.
“You worked together?”
“Right.” Xia Xibei nodded and told the whole story. “So it all started because of Zhang Yiqi.”
“Zhang Yiqi? Why would she target Tang Luo?”
“Zhang Yiqi likes Mo Bonan, right?”
“How do you know she likes Mo Bonan?”
“I could tell!” Xia Xibei blurted.
“Then why can’t you see when someone likes you?” he demanded.
“Huh?” Xia Xibei was startled. “Who likes me?”
