Tang Xinyue got more incensed by the second. "Tang Xinya, you..."
Mrs. Tang was about to continue, but she felt a glare coming from behind her. With a chill through her spine, she turned her head slowly to see.
"L- Li Xia?" Mrs. Tang swallowed her words.
"Mrs. Tang, I suggest you be more lenient towards my wife." Li Xia said coldly, without a hint of warmth in his eyes.
"Yes..." She didn't know why, but the authoritative presence he exuded made her agree.
"Xia, respect your elders!" Qin Huiying was very dissatisfied with her son. She was thoroughly convinced that Fan Lingxin was a good actor but a bad wife.
"Mum, I know what I'm doing."
Suddenly, Tang Xinyue rushed toward him.
A hand grabbed his ear. "Ouch!"
Tang Xinyue dragged Li Xia away from the living room, leaving the situation unbearably awkward.
"Lingxin, come here~" Tang Xinyue's sweet voice sounded out from the other room, prompting Fan Lingxin to stand up and walk there.
Inside the room, Li Xia creased his eyebrows. What is Tang Xinyue doing? She still isn't letting go of my ear? "What do you wa-"
"Be patient." Tang Xinyue interrupted him.
Fan Lingxin opened the door meekly. Her tears did not detract from her beauty in any way. In fact, they accentuated it.
Tang Xinyue looked at Fan Lingxin weirdly.
What a crybaby!
"Li Xia, explain yourself." Tang Xinyue demanded as she let go of the man's ear.
"Me, explain myself?" Li Xia did not know what Tang Xinyue was pertaining to.
"Yes, you. Why did you give her a pendant to give to your mother?" Tang Xinyue's heated gaze almost burned Li Xia's skin.
Li Xia wasn't scared nor intimidated at all. Instead, he was curious. This Tang Xinyue... She wasn't this strong willed before. What could possibly have happened to her last night?
Fan Lingxin raised her head and rubbed her eyes. "Sister Xinyue, it wasn't Li Xia's fault..."
Tang Xinyue knew that she was being unreasonable, but she just couldn't comprehend why he had given Fan Lingxin the pendant.
Did that simple confession of mine change his opinion drastically?
Is his image of me so fragile? So easily changed?
She waited for an answer from him.
After a minute, neither redirected their stares.
Fan Lingxin looked back and forth toward her best friend and her husband. She panicked, not knowing what to do.
Ten minutes passed, and neither relented.
Both sides were silent, the atmosphere in the room becoming weird.
Tang Xinyue's anger that fueled her courage dispersed.
"Um, what's happening?" Fan Lingxin finally worked up the courage to ask.
Meanwhile, Li Xia examined Tang Xinyue. Her face was the same, her body was the same, the only thing different about her was her current personality and temperament.
He always knew that this childhood friend of his was a scheming woman.
However, the past night, she blabbered a bunch of nonsense, then confessed that she was the one who drugged him. It simply did not make sense to him.
By then, he made the decision to switch the gift that she bought for Fan Lingxin to give to bait her out.
Her actions after that were incomprehensible.
