Chapter 1897: All I Want is Revenge (8)
"It wasn't him. He's been ignoring Mo Xue'er the entire time."
"Oh? Then who bailed her out? That's strange＃" Huo Mian was slightly surprised.
"I'm surprised too, it was Elder Xiang＃"
"Elder Xiang＃" Huo Mian widened her eyes and looked at Jiang Xiaowei in disbelief.
"Please don't look at me like that, Mian. I'm not kidding, I'm 100% serious."
"If I remember correctly, the chairman of the Xiang Corporation is in his seventies＃" Huo Mian was shocked.
"It's him indeed. An informer from the bureau said that he's well acquainted with Mo Xue'er. Rumors say that he's her sugar daddy, but I'm not sure if it's true or fake. Mo Xue'er did attend Mr. Xiang's birthday party last year and it was on the news as well, but nobody had the guts to make a scene under the influence of the Xiang Family. It seems like Huo Siqian really broke Mo Xue'er's heart this time and that's why she went to the old man for shelter＃"
"If that's true, it'd be such a pity. I always thought Mo Xue'er was a smart girl and didn't expect her to be involved with the Xiang Family. As far as I know, the Xiang Family has a mobster background, so things are probably more complicated than they seem."
"I also heard that they started as mobsters and slowly transitioned to legal businesses. From the outside, people in their family seem like ordinary businessmen who are well-connected with the higher-ups at the Municipal Bureau. I don't understand either, but who cares? Anyhow, the Wei Family never deals with the Xiang Family. My father-in-law doesn't seem to like them very much. When he occasionally mentions them at the dinner table, his words are usually derogatory. I don't know much about the complicated relationships and grudges of these rich families. Whatever, let's eat and talk about something else."
Jiang Xiaowei picked up a huge piece of meat and put it on Huo Mian's plate.
"Okay." Huo Mian nodded.
Suddenly, Huo Mian thought of something and looked up at Jiang Xiaowei. "Xiaowei, are you close to Wei Ying?"
"Kind of＃ she's my sister-in-law after all＃ but Wei Ying is super high-maintenance and indeed has Princess Syndrome. I'm not sure if I'm right about her though. Fortunately, we don't live under the same roof so we get along just fine."
"How has she been ever since she married into the Shen Family?" Huo Mian asked in a soft tone.
"Hmm, how should I describe her situation? I guess she's doing okay. The guy from the Shen Family is an introvert. He doesn't like talking and seemed to be tepid towards Wei Ying, but Wei Ying was willing to marry him. Moreover, my father-in-law and the Shen Family also supported the marriage, so truth be told, no one has been paying much attention to how happy the couple is. All they care about is whether the marriage is going to last," Jiang Xiaowei analyzed calmly.
"Okay." Huo Mian nodded again.
"What's wrong? Did something happen, Mian?"
Jiang Xiaowei was extremely smart and knew that Huo Mian wouldn't ask a question like that without a reason.
Huo Mian was very close to Xiaowei and didn't want to hide anything from her. Therefore, she briefly told Xiaowei about her encounter with Huo Yanyan.
Jiang Xiaowei sighed at the end. "If it's true, then Wei Ying sure is immature. Men have their own ways of handling things, and women shouldn't mess around. Her immaturity has turned her into an unreasonable shrew. In contrast, Huo Yanyan has turned into a considerate young woman."
"Young Master Shen doesn't seem like a rolling stone and Huo Yanyan probably doesn't think she's that charming either. Who knows what will come out of their relationship. Anyhow, your sister-in-law probably has a lot to say about me at the moment. After all, I helped Huo Yanyan out, and she knows you and I are good friends. If she nags you about this＃," Huo Mian paused deliberately and looked at Jiang Xiaowei; she knew the latter understood what she wanted to say.
