Transmigrated into the Cannon Fodder’s Daughter - Chapter 40.1
Li Qianfei thought they would be able to immediately recognize each other and that Quan Yisen would believe her as long as she gave a few details. But who would have thought Quan Yisen would react like this?
Why was he avoiding her? Why did he think she was a jinx?
Li Qianfei’s tears fell.
“Did Li Xiao say something to you?” she sobbed on the floor. “I know my sister never liked me because of who I am. Even if she insults me, I can still understand her.”
Quan Yisen said without hesitation, “She didn’t mention you in front of me.” Things weren’t adding up.
Li Qianfei stopped crying. Although Quan Yisen’s reaction was different than what she had expected, it didn’t prevent her from rehearsing according to her script.
“We were in danger. I put on your clothes and cut my hair short. Before we parted, I said to you, ‘Don’t be afraid, I’m the Goddess of Luck. Everything will be fine.’ And you promised me you’d come back for me.”
Quan Yisen was no longer calm and collected. His face showed visible pain. Was the angel he remembered really Li Xiao? Or was it this scheming woman?
“Back then, I even bit you on the arm.” Li Qianfei’s tone was reminiscent. “Although it was dangerous, I wasn’t afraid because I believed you would come back.”
Quan Yisen’s expression was grim. “Stop talking.”
Why would she shatter his jewel-like memories?
As Li Qianfei raised her head and caught sight of his distorted features, she couldn’t help but cringe. No matter how good-looking Quan Yisen’s face was, it couldn’t withstand such a hideous expression. However, it showed that Quan Yisen was furious to the extreme.
Li Qianfei continued to add fuel to the fire. “You gave me the necklace, but my sister stole it away. Usually, I let her have whatever she wants. But I didn’t want to give her this necklace. It represents my most precious memories.”
Her expression was mixed with sorrow and stubbornness. “I don’t want to see her impersonate me to get close to you.”
She continued to blabber on, but Quan Yisen gave no reaction. When she looked up, their gazes interlocked. His eyes suppressed a deeper emotion, and to her surprise, Quan Yisen had calmed down.
“You said Li Xiao stole the necklace?”
Li Qianfei hesitated before saying, “I don’t know if it was her, but I always safeguarded it very well. One day, it just disappeared, and I saw her wearing the necklace. It’s also possible that I saw incorrectly. Maybe someone else took it and gave it to her.”
Although never directly stated, her words implied that Li Xiao had stolen the necklace.
Unfortunately, she hadn’t known that Quan Yisen hated her so much, to the point where he would unconsciously nitpick on every word and action of hers.
In Quan Yisen’s eyes, Li Qianfei was the definition of hypocrisy. Her statements were clearly the opposite of reality. According to Li Qianfei, Li Xiao had sinister intentions and stole the necklace to impersonate Li Qianfei.
But he knew very well that Li Xiao never wanted anything of the sort. Instead, she even rejected his advance. If she wanted to steal the necklace, why would she have auctioned it off and used the money to donate to charity?
He gazed at Li Qianfei and headed back to the building without hesitation. He needed to sort out this mess and find the truth.
Li Qianfei watched his retreating figure with astonishment.
Did Quan Yisen believe her? Did he want to take revenge on Li Xiao?
His reaction wasn’t what Li Qianfei had expected.
She sat for a moment before shivering from the night air. She stood and dried her tears. Taking out her cell phone, she called her father’s number and sobbed. “Dad, I don’t feel good.”
Quan Yisen drowned his sorrows in liquor. He had always had good self-control, but today, the shock was too much, making him use alcohol to numb the pain.
How could the scheming Li Qianfei and the brave, kind angel from his childhood be the same person?
In the past, he had imagined their reunion countless times. But once he substituted Li Qianfei for his angel, his stomach started to churn, making him sick to his stomach.
“Boss, what are we going to do with all the flowers?” His assistant came forward to ask for instructions.
At the mention of the flowers, Quan Yisen went into a trance. He had previously dug up the original flowers on campus because he wanted to confess to Li Xiao. After speaking with the school, he had replaced them with the various roses he had carefully purchased.
But now, his love was dead.
“Burn them all,” Quan Yisen snapped.
“Ok.” The assistant quickly retreated.
Quan Yisen, stuck in a trance, caught a whiff of the faint aroma of mixed flowers and grasses. The smell made him unbelievably drowsy.
Drowsiness surged throughout his body. Quan Yisen’s head leaned forward before colliding with the table, rendering him unconscious.
