Transmigrated into the Cannon Fodder’s Daughter - Chapter 38.1
Quan Yisen stared at the paper so fiercely that his eyes could’ve easily burned a hole through it.
The Fide Auction House would not have soiled its brand by putting up a fraudulent artifact, which meant that the necklace could only be the real thing. Of course, Quan Yisen couldn’t let the necklace fall into someone else’s hands.
With a cold face, Quan Yisen ordered, “Book me the fastest flight. I’m going to buy the necklace personally.”
Frantic thoughts churned through his mind.
What would motivate Li Xiao to sell the necklace? Was she forced to? Did someone steal it? Was it Li Qianfei?
All sorts of conspiracy theories floated throughout his head. The more he thought about it, the angrier he became.
He decided to ask Li Xiao about it after school started. If she were unhappy in that house, then he would protect her and make her smile brilliantly like the smile that had etched itself into his memories.
Li Qianfei sneezed.
Li Qianfei had applied to Azure University, the best college in S City, and ranked sixth in the country, even higher than Li Xiao’s alma mater. After she was admitted, netizens showered her with compliments for her beauty and intellect. She was supposed to be different than the stupid Li Xiao. Azure University was located near Nanjiang University, which was Li Xiao’s school. This was the reason Li Qianfei applied here. As long as Li Qianfei was close to Li Xiao, Li Xiao would never be able to outshine her.
At least…that was how it was supposed to go. How had everything turned out so horribly?!
Li Qianfei’s expression twisted.
In the past, Li Qianfei loved going to school and bathing in everyone’s envious and admiring gazes. However, now, she felt like a dog that had fallen into a pond. Everyone shouted at her wherever she went. She couldn’t endure their spiteful gazes and didn’t want to stand under the sun for the new student military training activities. So before Li Qianfei enrolled, she paid off a doctor to write her a certificate to avoid the first year of military training.
The sun was scorching hot right now. What if she tanned? If she did, she wouldn’t be able to appear in front of Quan Yisen.
As she thought of him, Li Qianfei’s twisted expression morphed into a radiant smile.
As Li Qianfei had hoped, Quan Yisen had come to China. She had also heard that he deliberately told the media he was looking for her. He had even become an exchange student at Nanjiang University.
Everything was going according to plan. Knowing Li Xiao, she would definitely try to impersonate Quan Yisen’s savior because she had the necklace.
Even if Li Xiao managed to impersonate Li Qianfei for a little while, she couldn’t imitate her for a lifetime. When everything would be revealed, Li Xiao would be humiliated by the angry Quan Yisen and end up miserable—just like she had in Li Qianfei’s dream.
As she recalled the dream, Li Qianfei’s smile faded, and a hint of fear flashed through her eyes.
When she was seven, Li Qianfei had a dream. In the dream, Li Qianfei learned that Li Xiao had saved Quan Yisen as a child. Hence, Li Qianfei stole Li Xiao’s necklace, ran to Quan Yisen, and told him she was his savior.
At first, Li Qianfei managed to convince him. But it didn’t last long. Shortly after, he discovered the truth and met Li Xiao.
In Li Qianfei’s dream, Quan Yisen treated her coldly. As revenge, he ruined her reputation, making her unable to find a job. The poverty that ensued had led her to become the mistress of a rich man and eventually drove her to jump off a building.
The dream was terrifyingly vivid. When Li Qianfei was eight, she met Quan Yisen before Li Xiao. After being kidnapped with him, she became his savior. The circumstances had made her believe in her prophetic dreams. Li Qianfei had successfully rewritten her own destiny!
Li Qianfei fell for Quan Yisen at first sight. If it wasn’t for Li Xiao, Quan Yisen wouldn’t have treated Li Qianfei so coldly in her dream. He was too kind and considerate to do that.
Now, Li Qianfei was the one who had saved Quan Yisen—not Li Xiao. If Li Xiao tried to impersonate her, then she’d feel the heart-numbing pain Li Qianfei had tasted in her dreams.
Li Qianfei knew Li Xiao wouldn’t refuse the temptation. Who could resist Quan Yisen?
When Li Qianfei became Mrs. Quan, everyone who hurt her would have to crawl on their feet.
When she thought about meeting with Quan Yisen again, her fair cheeks flushed.
