Xia Sha guessed that Meng Ran would report everything to Ling Guang just as Xia Xiang tell her mischievousness to Pang Ze Tian. And probably Xia Qi Feng later on.
But watching two grey women with red and blue bikini perspectively crying while brushing the pool was worth it. Every time Xia Xiang threw a fit at the servant, none of them would say a word but replied-
"I'm sorry, miss. Miss Xia Sha ordered that no one can help you clean the mess."
Then Xia Xiang would throw a dirty glare towards Xia Sha's balcony direction. Xia Sha hides behind the curtains for the first ten minutes, then finally stepped up and replied Xia Xiang's glare with a smug face.
She deliberately leaned on the balcony and took a picture of them.
"Make sure it's clean! My pool is expensive. Even if you two sold all of your branded goods, you still could not afford it," Xia Sha yelled from the balcony..
Meng Ran felt very much wrong. She hasn't stopped crying since she almost drowned. Now that she had to brush a pool of 25 meters long while watching her grey skin, she started to feel depressed.
Xia Xiang felt so stressed out as she needs to clean the pool and heard Meng Ran's cried at the same time.
"Ah! Don't worry about your skin. It will go after one week!" Xia Sha laughed from the balcony. She enjoys the fun entertainment show until her phone rang.
Ling Guang calling.
Xia Sha's expression turned cold in a split second. She put on a fake smile and answered the call.
"Hello dear," she talked in her usual voice. Trying to surpassed her urges to puke upon hearing his voice.
"Xia Sha, where are you? Why didn't you come to the office?" Xia Sha was stunned and almost fooled. If she hadn't known the truth, she would have felt touched by Ling Guang's fake concerns.
"I'm sick," Xia Sha made an excuse, her sight falling on Meng Ran's body in a red bikini.
"What happened to you? Are you okay? Have you seen the doctor? That can't do. I will pick you up, and we will go to the hospital now," Ling Guang sounded worried and in distress.
Xia Sha lowered her head, her lips turning into a mocking smile.
"Okay, then I'll wait for you at my house," Xia Sha replied in a low tone.
'I'll let you see what I can do to save your new lover', she thought.
After several wishy-washy chats, Ling Guang ended the call claiming that he will immediately go to fetch her. Xia Sha looked at the clock on the wall.
'Just right in the time', she thought. Father Xia would come home soon. She once again looked at Xia Xiang and Meng Ran.
"Stop brushing! I'm not content with your works. I'm afraid that the pool will be dirtier if you keep brushing like that."
Xia Xiang and Meng Ran took a long time to wash their body clean, but the grey color stubbornly stuck on their fair skin. Meng Ran wanted to kill Xia Sha when she saw her reflection in the mirror.
Biting her lips hard, she swore that she would have revenge on her. However, right when she stepped out from the door, she was greeted by Xia Xiang's worried grey face.
"Meng Ran! Quick! Brother Ling Guang is downstairs!" Meng Ran turned into stone after listening to the information from Xia Xiang.
She looked at her grey skin, and suddenly her eyes were filled with water once again.
Just right, she could complain to Ling Guang. Ling Guang would bring justice to her. Moreover, now that Xia Sha has known their unspoken relationship, there was no reason for her to hide anymore.
Without thinking any further, she stepped out of the room to find Ling Guang sitting proudly in the living room. Her eyes lighted up when she sees Ling Guang. She is so happy that she did not notice other people in the living room.
"Brother Ling Guang!" she called out for help rushing from the stairs to the living room. Ling Guang looked at her and got surprised when he saw her grey skin.
He frowned and wanted to ask what happened to her, but when he felt the cold gaze from Xia Sha, he held his tongue.
Ling Guang asked nothing, even acted as a stranger towards Meng Ran. Tears started to well up in her eyes. She about to say something when Xia Qi Feng's stern gaze met her eyes. Meng Ran gets dumbfounded for a moment. She lowered her gaze when Pang Ze Tian give her a hint.
Meng Ran felt even more wronged by Xia Sha. But she knew she could not do anything when Xia Qi Feng is sitting like a big boss on the couch while Pang Ze Tian sat obediently beside him.
Xia Xiang, who was catching her up, stopped her step when she realized that father Xia had come back from work. She started her fake drama play and weakly walked to the couch near Xia Qi Feng.
Xia Qi Feng was clueless about Xia Xiang, but Pang Ze Tian was her biological mother. She got worried when she saw her appearance.
"Xiang Xiang, what happened to your skin?" She sounded panicky as she walked to approach Xia Xiang.
Xia Qi Feng only realized his daughter had pulled another teenager prank when Pang Ze Tian pointed it out loudly. He looked at Xia Sha with a stern look, prepared to scold her.
"You are a grown-up. Stop playing those teenage pranks!" Xia Qi Feng's frowned at Xia Sha. But his scolding does not affect Xia Sha even a bit. She grinned at her father and looked at Pang Ze Tian.
"Aunty, your daughter, and her friend were sunbathing. I thought they wanted to get healthy tanned skin, and as a loving sister I am, I decided to help them." She looked at Pang Ze Tian mockingly.
"Ah, father, do you remember Meng Ran? She is Xia Xiang's best friend. She is also the secretary of Ling Guang," She dropped a clue for Xia Qi Feng and smiled.
Ling Guang, who was silently lowering his head, received a sharp glance from father Xia and sweat started to form on his body. Damn it! Don't tell me Xia Qi Feng has known about Meng Ran.
Xia Qi Feng said nothing but turned his sharp glance towards Meng Ran instead. He was looking at her as if examining a good. He furrowed his eyebrows, looking at Meng Rang then at his daughter.
Xia Sha, who received such a look from her father chuckled. He must be comparing her to Meng Ran. Xia Sha guessed it right.
Father Xia was complaining that Xia Sha was better in any aspect than that grey girl. Ling Guang is blind!
