Chapter 257: The First Present
Translator: Lonelytree Editor: Millman97
"If that's the case what are you doing here‽ You should know we Chu's don't welcome this b*tch!"
"We're here to give Tianxin some presents." This time it was Xinghe who answered.
The tone of her voice was calm but there was great pressure behind it.
Mrs. Chu frowned. "Presents? What presents?"
Xinghe ordered with a cold smirk, "Men, bring Chu Tianxin her first present!"
Immediately, two bodyguards came in carrying a stretcher.
There was something on it but it was concealed under a white cloth.
The arrival of this mysterious object chilled the air around them. It radiated an insidious aura…
Tianxin's instinct told her this couldn't be anything good.
The stretcher was laid down on the floor between the two parties and the bodyguards retreated silently.
Xinghe fixed her gaze on Tianxin as she ordered, "Go on, peel it back. I've prepared long and hard for this incredible present."
"Xia Xinghe, what are you playing at‽" Tianxin turned on her, "I'm not in the mood to play games with you! State your goal clearly or get out of my house!"
"Why waste time listening to her goal? All of you, get out! We don't welcome you here!" Mrs. Chu berated them with dissatisfaction.
Xinghe laughed. "Why so hasty? I told you I'm here to give you presents. Trust me, you'll regret it if you don't open the gift."
"Fine, I'll see what kind of tricks you can pull under here!" Mr. Chu pulled away the white cloth with a swipe of his feet.
And thus, the gift was revealed –
Mrs. Chu screamed in fear and even Tianxin took several steps back, their faces paled.
Mr. Chu glared at the supposed 'present', his eyes burning with fury.
"Someone, go call the cops!" His voice was even shaking from anger.
This 'present' Xinghe gave them was simply too hair-raisingly creepy.
It was the bodies of two wolfhounds…
To be precise, the broken bodies of two wolfhounds that obviously didn't die in peace.
The two dogs' deaths were unspeakably horrifying. Mrs. Chu would have dropped to the floor if not for Tianxin's shaking body holding her up.
However, Tianxin had another thing to fear.
She finally realized why Xinghe was there.
She is looking for revenge!
But how did she know I'm the culprit? My identity was even hidden from the two kidnappers!
"Mr. Chu, are you sure you want to call the cops?" Xinghe's clear voice cut through her thoughts. "The moment the police arrive is the moment you lose your freedom."
"What do you mean by that?" Mr. Chu narrowed his eyes at her with shock.
For some reason, he felt unease swept over him.
He knew this woman before him was no fool and had come prepared.
"You'll know soon enough," Xinghe turned back to Tianxin, "So what do you think? Do you like your present?"
"Xia Xinghe, what exactly are you aiming for? Why are you purposely using this to scare me?" Tianxin's eyes were filled with tears, she looked to Mubai pleadingly, "Mubai, I didn't do anything wrong, so why are you siding with this woman to bully me like this?"
Ever since they'd arrived, Mubai's eyes had been glazed with iciness.
He didn't even look at them this way during the lunch when the engagement was broken off.
But now, there was not even the tiniest bit of warmth in his eyes.
Faced with Tianxin's pleading, his facial muscle didn't even twitch. She was dead in his eyes the moment Tianxin flinched when she opened the door and saw Xinghe. This was indeed the culprit as Xinghe had said. 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2018 So Far
