Qiao An gritted her teeth angrily and spat out a few words. “You can’t tell right from wrong, black from white. People like you don’t deserve true love.”
Huo Xiaoran trembled violently because of this vicious curse. His heart felt like it had been cut open by Qiao An. His empty heart that couldn’t keep his true love was exposed in front of others, making Huo Xiaoran feel so embarrassed.
Was someone like him really not worthy of true love?
Qiao An turned around and strode away.
Huo Xiaoran’s handsome face was pale. He waved at Lu Mo and his daughter weakly. “Get out.”
Her tone was very soft, like a feather brushing past one’s skin, but it inexplicably made the mother and daughter feel cold.
“Xiaoran, isn’t she just an employee? It’s fine if she leaves. With the reputation of the Angel Group, why would you worry about not being able to hire someone better than her? Don’t worry, leave your assistant to me. I’ll find you a prettier and gentler employee later.”
Lu Mo’s mother always regarded herself as Huo Xiaoran’s mother-in-law. Huo Xiaoran and Lu Mo’s marriage was clearly not set in stone, but she always said that she was Huo Xiaoran’s mother-in-law.
As time passed, the people of the Angel Group became very respectful of her.
However, Huo Xiaoran was very disgusted by her self-proclamation. His originally cold tone suddenly had a hint of impatience. “You don’t have to worry about me.”
Lu Mo glared at her mother, afraid that Mrs. Lu would continue to annoy Huo Xiaoran. Lu Mo pulled Mrs. Lu out and said considerately, “Senior, go ahead with your work. We’ll go back first.”
After leaving the CEO’s office, Lu Mo couldn’t wait to reprimand her mother. “Aiya, Mom, you went overboard today. Senior is unhappy.”
Mrs. Lu said proudly, “Although he’s unhappy, we have kept Chen Sisi away from him. This way, your threat will be eliminated.”
Lu Mo and her mother held hands and left happily.
After Qiao An resigned, Huo Xiaoran felt uneasy all day.
He did not understand what was wrong with him. It was just firing an employee. Even if he might have made her suffer, he did not punish her. He even asked the HR department to compensate her for three months’ salary. He did not mistreat her.
Why did he feel extremely ashamed?
Probably to soothe his guilt, he decided to fulfill his promise and compensate Qiao An for the royalties.
He called Secretary Dong and instructed him, “Go and check Chen Sisi’s royalties at Hai Yue. Report it to me as soon as possible.”
Secretary Dong did not understand why Huo Xiaoran suddenly issued such a mission that was completely unrelated to the corporation’s interests.
However, he believed that the CEO was wise to make any decision. He agreed respectfully, “Yes, CEO. I’ll check immediately.”
Huo Xiaoran gave Secretary Dong Chen Sisi’s name and ID number before hanging up and waiting for Secretary Dong’s reply.
Not long after, Secretary Dong called him back. He said in confusion, “CEO, I entered Chen Sisi’s ID number into the background, but it showed that there was no such person.”
Huo Xiaoran widened his eyes in shock.
“So she… signed on with a fake ID?”
Secretary Dong added, “Or perhaps, she used a fake identity card when she applied for the position of the Angel Group.”
Huo Xiaoran’s heart inexplicably rippled.
Secretary Dong said, “CEO, you’re right. There’s indeed something wrong with Chen Sisi getting close to you. Fortunately, you fired her.”
Huo Xiaoran did not feel relieved like Secretary Dong. Instead, he felt very disappointed, as if he had missed something.
He was stunned for a moment before he came back to his senses. He picked up a fountain pen and forcefully scratched two words on the white A4 paper: Qiao An.
“Qiao An, is that you?”
After Qiao An left the Angel Group, she wasn’t in a hurry to go home. Instead, she turned around and went to another pharmaceutical company.
“Qiao An, you’re here?” When Dr. Jason saw his old friend, he put down his work happily and paced to Qiao An’s side.
“Jason, let’s talk in private,” Qiao An said.
Jason led Qiao An into his office and poured her a cup of hot water.
“Qiao An, drink some water.”
However, Qiao An took out an USB drive from his bag and threw it to Jason.
‘I think you need this.’
A fleeting cunning flashed in Jason’s eyes, then he smiled brightly. “What is this?”
Qiao An said, “The latest drug formula of the Angel Group. I think that with it, you can defeat Li Kang Group and dampen the spirit of the Angel Group. It can comfort your father’s soul in heaven.”
However, Jason frowned with a dark expression. “Qiao An, if Huo Xiaoran finds out about this, he won’t let you off.”
Qiao An said fearlessly, “He owes me that.”
Three years ago, Huo Xiaoran had schemed and almost took Qiao An’s life. Originally, Qiao An’s life was given by Huo Xiaoran, so Qiao An had nothing to be upset about.
However, Qiao An still had two children in her womb. He had almost caused the death of two children, so Qiao An couldn’t let him off.
And Jason had risked his life to save them back then. Qiao An was someone who knew how to repay kindness. She had to repay Jason.
Coincidentally, Jason’s father had been forced by Li Kang Corporation to commit suicide. Qiao An’s honor had been destroyed by Li Zecheng and his mother. Therefore, Qiao An was willing to be tied to Jason because they had a common enemy.
Jason took the USB drive and eagerly turned on the computer. When he saw the unsold drug formulas of Angel Group, his eyes revealed an imperceptible greed.
“Qiao An, with this information, our company can turn the tables. Thank you so much.”
He said a lot of grateful things, but Qiao An just laughed it off.
Finally she stood and said goodbye to Jason.
“Alright, I should go. It won’t be long before Huo Xiaoran wants me. I have to find a place to hide for a while.”
Jason said, “So how do I contact you?”
“I’ll contact you.”
A week later.
Secretary Dong ran into the CEO’s office anxiously. Huo Xiaoran looked straight at him. “You have to be calm when something happens. How many times do I have to tell you?”
Secretary Dong said, “We can’t stay calm about this. CEO, our pharmaceutical company’s formula has been leaked.”
Huo Xiaoran’s eyes were dark. “Who leaked it?”
“Your classmate, Jason, has the formula. And we found out that Chen Sisi went to Jason’s company the day she was fired.”
Huo Xiaoran’s hand that was holding the fountain pen suddenly trembled, and the fountain pen drew a tattered mark on the paper.
His troubled thoughts finally settled. Chen Sisi was definitely not Qiao An.
Qiao An wouldn’t be so heartless to him?
“Find her,” he ordered through gritted teeth.
