Chapter 1664: What if I am not done speaking?
“How could I be satisfied?” Qu Xiujie looked around in vexation. “Tell me how I should be satisfied? Is this room the maids’ quarter for your family? It shouldn’t be because your family is the richest in the capital, so how can your dwelling look so shabby?”
He complained. Alas, before he could tease Ji Ziming further, the latter took him a notch down.
“If you’re unsatisfied, there’s still time for you to head downhill.”
The young chap’s lips curled. Back when he was at the hospital, this old fellow tried to take advantage of Pei Ge. Even if he permitted it, he would not let him off easily.
There just happened to be an opportunity now.
Though he wanted to voice his dissatisfaction more, when he saw the couple’s apathy, he stopped speaking and looked at them.
“Are you done speaking?”
When Ji Ziming did not hear his reply after a while, an evil smile formed on his lips. The shine of his eyes made the latter feel terrified.
“I’m done, but what if I’m not?”
It was as though Qu Xiujie had resigned to fate. His shoulders slouched as he shrugged. “Young man, you’ll regret doing this to me next time.”
“Oh? I haven’t regretted any of my actions yet.”
Ruthlessness flashed across his eyes and his smile looked especially dangerous.
“Heh… It’s just because you haven’t encountered a situation that would make you regret.”
Qu Xiujie sighed internally. Back when he was in the Qu family, he was a young master who spent his time in leisure, but now that he was here with Ji Ziming, he had been reduced to a lowly foot soldier.
He was truly as the saying said, ‘If the tiger goes down to level land, it will be insulted by dogs’.
“Even if I do come across a situation like that, I will have ways to settle it.”
Ji Ziming only wanted to know if Qu Xiujie really had a path of retreat for himself. He wanted to make sure that he knew everything. However, it seemed that this fella had gotten hold of a more important piece of information he did not have.
He would not fight in a war he was not ready for, but this time, he could only give it a try.
“Since you two are here, sit down and listen to a story.”
Qu Xiujie adjusted his sitting posture on the bed—a picture of a senior who was about to lecture his juniors.
There was an ominous feeling in Ji Ziming’s heart. Could the story be about Pei Ge’s background which he had been trying to find?
“That’s right. I believe your wife will be very interested.”
Qu Xiujie was no longer his flamboyant self as he looked at the woman next to the man.
“Why don’t Mr. Qu go ahead and speak? Let’s see if I will truly be very interested in it. I’m all ears.”
Pei Ge did not mind what Qu Xiujie would talk about. This guy appeared to have many ideas contrary to his looks.
“Sure. Young Master Ji, are you going to sit down and listen, too?”
Eyeing the man who was standing beside the woman, he was sure that, after his story, the one bound to receive a shock would be him and not her.
“Sure. I’ll listen to your story.”
Ji Ziming smiled nicely; in actual fact, he did not care what story Qu Xiujie was going to tell, for in his heart, he could sense that this fellow was up to no good.
Qu Xiujie talked about how his mother was deeply hurt by the presence of a mistress in the family. She disappeared from their family with his sister, leaving him there.
From then on, he had not seen her again. Instead, their family became Old Master Qu and Old Lady Qu’s playground. While he, a son born by the original wife, became a useless chess piece.
He really hated his mother for not leaving with him, too. His life was unhappy in the family as he was marginalized by Old Lady Qu and made little of by his father. Thus, he started rebelling by befriending street thugs, which gave his father a big headache and made his stepmom unhappy.
It went on for so long that he thought he would spend his entire life like this until he met a woman during a traffic accident. That woman resembled his mother completely and even her eyes were the same as his.
That was when Qu Xiujie realized that his life was not just this. Other than his father, he still had other family. However, he must go look for this family himself, and it was as though life had specially arranged it for him.
Within a blink of an eye, he ran back from the edge of a cliff.
“You’re referring to my wife, weren’t you?”
Ji Ziming interrupted his reminiscing. He had once suspected it too, but because he had no evidence, he could not draw a firm conclusion.
“How could it be me?”
Pei Ge refused to believe it. She hated the Qu family to the core, especially Qu Jingwan and that elderly woman.
“That’s right. Young Master Ji is really smart.”
He laughed wholeheartedly as he looked at the man with the gentle eyes of a senior looking at a junior.
“After that, I found out that my mother was forced to leave our family. Besides that old hag, there’s another person, but I haven’t found that one yet. Even my father might not know that that person exists.”
“Since you have no idea either, how are you so sure that it’s done by Old Lady Qu?”
Ji Ziming knew that, for Qu Xiujie to say something like this, he must have gotten hold of the truth. Perhaps, this was the road of retreat that he kept for himself.
“For a woman to rise through the ranks, other than kicking the wife out through vicious schemes, she needed something to be able to stay in my family and live the life of a madam.”
Qu Xiujie was sure that, back then, in order to marry his father, that woman aborted her son. Precisely because of that, his father treasured her more. Even if she committed a mistake, he would not punish her because she aborted a child for him.
“Back then, her schemes were deep. Have you perhaps learned the truth?”
Ji Ziming’s voice was aloof, but he sounded serious unlike his joking tone before.
“That incident happened a long time ago, so I didn’t manage to find out anything. I only learned of where my mother had gone to after leaving the family. As for that old hag, I only got some piece of information stating that my mother supported her studies, but I have no solid evidence regarding that.”
