Chapter 19: 019 Unbreakable Relationship
Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
Xia Jin did not know if she had some sort of unbreakable relationship with Huo Jue. She would see him every time in her most pathetic state.
She took the initiative to quit her job back then, and now, she had ended up in this state. She made a fool of herself at the mall last time. This time, she got beaten by a woman. She did not know if Huo Jue was mocking her in his heart.
However, Xia Jin’s endurance was decent. Thus, she quickly regained her composure and even patted Qin Xuan’s hand to comfort her.
“Rourou, what are you doing?!” The casual-suited man tugged at the woman. His expression did not look too good, but he could not bear to blame his wife in public, so he only chided her loudly twice.
“Miss Fang, why did you hit my friend for no reason? Do you think that you can do whatever you want in this bar?” Seeing Xia Jin being beaten up, Qin Xuan was also infuriated.
Fang Rou raised her eyebrows in surprise and sized Qin Xuan up. “You’re the bar owner, Qin Xuan? You f*cking seduced my husband! Shouldn’t I hit you?”
When she heard the woman’s name was Fang Rou, Xia Jin instantly felt that she sounded familiar.
It took her a long time to remember that this woman was Huo Jue’s cousin. No wonder Huo Jue was also present today.
The man in casual clothes should be Fang Rou’s husband–Cheng Wei.
Cheng Wei was the legitimate son of the Cheng family and was going to inherit the Cheng Corporation in the future. Xia Jin naturally could not afford to offend such a person.
Although she was inexplicably drenched in red wine and beaten up, Xia Jin knew that she could not afford to offend any of these people in front of her. A dark light flashed in her eyes, and she quietly put the stone sculpture back.
If she hadn’t come from a humble background, she wouldn’t have been humiliated like this.
Seeing that Fang Rou’s petulant temper was about to cause her to turn her anger on Qin Xuan, Cheng Wei explained to her hurriedly.
It turned out that Fang Rou noticed that her husband came to this bar often, and heard that the lady boss of this bar was beautiful and charming, so she subconsciously thought that Cheng Wei had been seduced by Qin Xuan. She rushed over to stir up trouble as she could not stand it anymore.
“Rourou, I’m here to accompany Gu Xiao. Qin Xuan is Gu Xiao’s girlfriend. What are you thinking? All right, my wife, don’t be angry anymore. It’s all my fault for not being able to explain it to you clearly.” Cheng Wei finished explaining and coaxed Fang Rou for quite some time, very dotingly.
Fang Rou snorted through her nose, and her face showed a bit of grievance. It was as if she was not the one who had hit Xia Jin, but the victim.
Then, Fang Rou snuggled into Cheng Wei’s arms, and the two of them looked at each other lovingly.
No one seemed to have thought of Xia Jin, and almost treated her as if she did not exist.
Qin Xuan tried to suppress the anger in her heart, but seeing Xia Jin’s head drenched in red wine, she could not calm down.
“Mr. Cheng, Miss Fang. Why should my friend bear the consequences of the misunderstanding between the two of you? She was beaten up for no reason. Don’t tell me you guys think this matter will just be forgotten?”
Cheng Wei froze, and then he looked at Xia Jin.
The woman in front of him was very beautiful, but she was in an extremely sorry state.
He vaguely felt that this woman looked somewhat familiar…
“You’re Huo Jue’s secretary?” Cheng Wei remembered and looked at Xia Jin with some surprise, and then at Duke Huo.
The corners of Huo Jue’s lips curled up coldly. “She resigned and has nothing to do with me now.”
Hearing Huo Jue’s words, Fang Rou immediately heaved a sigh of relief.
If Xia Jin was still Huo Jue’s secretary, then this matter wouldn’t be easy to resolve. Since she had hit one of Huo Jue’s people, the situation would naturally be more serious.
However, since Xia Jin had already resigned, then it didn’t matter if she had hit the wrong person.
“Who asked her to be in your office? I don’t know her, so if I hit the wrong person, then so be it.” Fang Rou rolled her eyes impatiently as if Xia Jin deserved this matter.
Qin Xuan was furious. Just as she was about to speak up to seek justice for Xia Jin, Xia Jin pulled her hand back.
“It’s okay, forget it.”
Even if she continued to pursue this matter, she would not gain anything out of it. Instead, Cheng Wei and Fang Rou would hold a grudge against her.
Qin Xuan gritted her teeth and finally held back her anger. She squeezed out a smile. “How about this? Today is my treat. Let’s go to the private lounge and talk.”
The group of people left Qin Xuan’s office, but Xia Jin did not move. She did not want to interact with these people and was ready to head back soon.
As Huo Jue was leaving, he turned to look at her. A hint of mockery was hanging in his eyes.
Although Xia Jin had been with him for five years and got mistakenly beaten up by someone today, Huo Jue had no intention of helping her at all. He even cut ties with her.
Even though she already knew that Huo Jue would never help her, Xia Jin still felt a sense of misery in her heart. She glanced at Huo Jue calmly and averted her gaze.
Qin Xuan held Xia Jin’s hand somewhat apologetically and said, “I’ll go deal with them.. Why don’t you go to my room and change your clothes?”
