He’s As Dazzling As The Stars - chapter 59
She had just placed her hand on the doorknob when the door was suddenly opened with a key from outside.
When she saw who it was, she was momentarily stunned.
The other party was stunned as well.
At the next instant, after she realized that she was not hallucinating, Xia Xingkong came back to her senses and screamed. “Xia Xingchen, why are you here?!”
“…” Xia Xingchen’s throat was dry. Even if she wanted to explain, she could not say anything now.
She wanted to leave but Xia Xingkong was so angry that her face turned white. She raised her hand with a domineering presence and with a ‘Bam’, a slap landed harshly on Xia Xingchen’s face.
She wanted to dodge it.
But she was too ill and thus suffered the slap. Xia Xingchen’s face was swollen red from the slap and the finger marks were very obvious.
With that slap, she became even more sluggish and confused.
“Xingkong, what are you doing?” When Xu Yan walked out, he saw that scene.
His brow twitched, and he lovingly scooped Xia Xingchen in his arms.
“Let me see, is it painful?”
Xia Xingchen struggled and wanted to move away from his embrace, but he did not let go and merely stared at Xia Xingkong in disappointment. “Xingkong, Xingchen is your elder sister. How could you hit her?”
“Brother Xu Yan, why are you shielding her? Can’t you see that she has bad intentions towards you?”
Xu Yan gave a bitter smile. He wished that she had bad intentions towards him.
He was the one who had bad intentions…
“Wait for me outside. I want to have a good chat with you.” Xu Yan pulled the door open and had a clear command. After that, without her permission, he carried a dizzy Xia Xingchen and walked inside.
“Xu Yan, I won’t allow you to leave! Stand there!” Xia Xingkong followed him. The vengeance on her face was burning vigorously.
An ill person and two other clear-headed people did not notice that a person had captured that scene from outside the house.
“We found her,” Leng Fei cautiously said when he reached the President’s Manor.
“Where is she?” Bai Yeqing stood up from the study table.
“…See for yourself.” Leng Fei dared not to say and only passed his phone with the photo over. “This was sent by our subordinates.”
Once Bai Yeqing saw the photograph, the chilly and scary look on his face seemed as though he could bore a hole through the phone screen.
His long fingers were tightly clenched.
In the study room, the atmosphere turned cold in an instant and the oppressive ambiance made Leng Fei dare not to breathe.
In the photograph… Miss Xia lay in Xu Yan’s embrace just like a cute little girl. Both of them were very intimate and were no different than that of a normal couple.
“Then… do we still need to bring Miss Xia back immediately?” After a long time, Leng Fei trembled and asked as he was not clear of the President’s thoughts.
“Why should we bring her back? Isn’t she very well?” His voice could not get any colder as he threw the phone back to Leng Fei. “Go back and sleep. You don’t have to care about her anymore!”
“…” Leng Fei caught his phone and left the study room in bewilderment.
Could it be that Mr. President could really not care about Miss Xia?
But as expected, before he could even walk out of the President’s Manor, a phone call had stopped him.
At the base level of the condominium.
Xia Xingkong held her tears and stared at Xu Yan in disbelief. “What did you say? Say it one more time!”
“Sorry. Let’s cancel our engagement…”
“For Xia Xingchen? Brother Xu Yan, I don’t want to do it! If you are angry with me because of that slap, I will apologize to you. I really didn’t know she was sick.” Xia Xingchen tugged Xu Yan’s arm as though she was grabbing the last wisp of grass.
Xu Yan pulled her hand away. “Sorry, Xingkong. Actually, my words have nothing to do with today. I wanted to tell you this earlier but I could not find the right timing.”
“Brother Xu Yan, you can’t treat me like this…”
Xia Xingkong pleaded. She wanted to continue but a few streaks of strong blinding light shone from outside the neighborhood.
The two of them instinctively looked towards that direction yet the light was so blinding that they could not open their eyes.
A few luxurious cars slowly drove in and stopped.
Many black-suited men alighted from the row of cars and one opened the passenger door of a luxury car. Bai Yeqing wore a full grey outfit and alighted.
In the remoteness of the night, the cool wind blew through the hem of his clothes. He stood at a height of 188 cm and looked down on the two of them. With just one look, his aura had oppressed them.
Xu Yan was shocked. No, more accurately, he was astonished.
Bai Yeqing glanced at him and his expressionless look made one feel very oppressed.
“Is she here?” He turned back and asked Leng Fei in a deep voice.
Leng Fei nodded his head. “Yes, she is in Mr. Xu’s house.”
Bai Yeqing moved his heavy gaze towards Xu Yan. After one glance, he walked towards the lift in heavy footsteps.
Xu Yan slowly came back to his senses from his astonishment, and he told Xia Xingkong, “I’m going upstairs to take a look.”
With that, he followed the people in front of him and hurriedly got in the lift.
Xia Xingkong was left alone as she looked at the scene with jealousy. First, the President. Next, Xu Yan. What charm does Xia Xingchen, a woman who had a child, has?
Bai Yeqing walked to the entrance with heavy footsteps. Before Xu Yan could take the key and open the door, the door was already pulled open from inside.
The person inside the house was so weak that she may faint at any moment.
He glanced at her and his expression had no warmth at all.
Xia Xingcen froze. She did not expect that he would appear in front of her.
The emotions that she had in her heart were only there for a short few seconds.
When she thought of her current situation, she quickly covered her mouth and nose tightly before instinctively closing the door with her other hand.
Bai Yeqing stared at her with cold eyes, and he coldly said, “Try and close it if you dare!”
His presence had stunned her that even the hand that Xia Xingchen placed on the door did not move. She only looked up at him with her eyes that had already turned red. That scene looked as though he was a fierce tiger while she was the little white rabbit that the tiger has yet to eat.
“Come out.” Bai Yeqing’s tone was not polite and was instead commanding.
Xia Xingchen’s legs went wobbly as she slowly walked out.
His long arm pulled her towards him. She had no strength at all and her whole body bumped into his stone-hard chest like a sack bag, and it somehow made her feel dizzy.
Bai Yeqing’s palm touched her forehead, and he was shocked by how warm it was. With a deep voice, he ordered Leng Fei, “Notify Doctor Fu to wait at President’s Manor with his medical team!”
“Yes,” Leng Fei immediately replied to him.
“Don’t stay too close to me…” Xia Xingchen feared that she might pass the virus on to him and tried her best to pry his hand away. But since her fever was too high, her slender fingers broke out in warm sweat.
Bai Yeqing scrunched his face up and did not let go of her waist while his other hand kept her stray hair away. The clear swollen red fingermark on her face suddenly appeared in his sight.
