187 Then She May Be Near Death

Qiao Qiao came back to her senses and looked up. She didn’t know if it was her imagination, but at this moment, she actually felt that Qiao Jingmo looked very gentle.

Sure enough, she had seen a ghost.

The next second, Qiao Jingmo reminded her coldly, “Come here and greet Grandpa.”

Qiao Qiao was unconvinced by Qiao Jingmo’s appearance. But what could she do?

She couldn’t beat him.

She could retort but didn’t dare to.

She could only obediently go over and greet the old man who appeared on the screen. “Grandpa.”

Old Master Qiao looked at his granddaughter, whom he had not seen for three years, and his smile was as bright as a child’s. “Little Guigui.”

Qiao Qiao looked at the old man. “How has Grandpa been?”

Mom said that Grandpa was in good health and would have no problem living to a hundred years old, but why did he look so haggard on the curtain?

Old Master Qiao was filled with relief. “Very good. I had a good life. I just miss my Guigui.”

Qiao Qiao pressed her lips together. “I miss Grandpa too.”

With that, she glanced at the calm Qiao Jingmo beside her. Qiao Jingmo sensed her gaze and looked over. Their eyes met. Qiao Qiao looked away as if she’d been caught.

When Old Master Qiao saw this scene, he shouted, “Jingmo.”

Qiao Jingmo replied, “Yes.”

Old Master Qiao said, “Take good care of Guigui in the capital.”

Qiao Jingmo nodded. “Yes.”

Qiao Qiao pursed her lips. “Who needs him to take care of me? Didn’t I survive alone for the past three years?”

What a joke. Qiao Jingmo taking care of her? She didn’t even know how she died. Now, they were still in harmony in front of her grandfather. When the video was uploaded, he might give her a cold look.

Old Master Qiao reminded Qiao Qiao, “Guigui, you have to listen to Jingmo. Grandpa will wait for you to come back.”

Qiao Qiao agreed obediently. “Okay.”

Old Master Qiao said, “Grandpa misses you.”

Qiao Qiao felt a lump in her throat. “I miss Grandpa too.”

As soon as the video ended, Qiao Qiao took a while to calm down. After calming down, she asked Qiao Jingmo, “When can I leave?”

Qiao Jingmo said coldly, “You’ll stay here for the time being.”

Qiao Qiao’s eyes widened. “Live here with you?”

Qiao Jingmo’s lips curled up. “Who do you want to be with?”

Qiao Qiao asked, “Then you came to the capital to take me back to Xingzhou, right?”

Qiao Jingmo said, “So you know.”

Qiao Qiao turned sideways and frowned. “But I didn’t say I was going back to Xingzhou.” Not only had she not said anything about returning to Xingzhou, but she had also not thought about returning to Xingzhou. It was good to live here. She liked her life now.

Qiao Jingmo raised his hand and grabbed Qiao Qiao’s shoulder, turning her around. “Can’t you tell that Grandpa misses you?”

Qiao Qiao pursed her lips and said nothing. How could she not tell? When the old man saw her in the video just now, his eyes turned red.

Qiao Jingmo let go of her shoulder. “I have something to discuss in the capital. I’ll stay for five days. Come back to Xingzhou with me in five days.”

Qiao Qiao did not refute Qiao Jingmo’s decision. Except, she tried to fight for it. “Can I go back to my own place for the next five days?”

She wasn’t going to live with this demon. What if he couldn’t sleep one night and thought about what she had done back then and wanted to kill her? At that time, she might visit Hell when she sleeps.

However, Qiao Jingmo did not agree. “No, you have to be under my nose.”

Qiao Qiao was annoyed. “Then why didn’t you chain me to your belt!!” Qiao Jingmo smiled and did not reply. Qiao Qiao’s pretty face was ugly. “I don’t care. I have human rights and freedoms anyway. You can’t stare at me for the rest of my life!”

The words ‘rest of my life’ made Qiao Jingmo’s eyes flash, then disappear so quickly that no one could notice the fluctuation in his eyes. His dark eyes looked at Qiao Qiao and he said calmly, “What would you do if I really stared at you for the rest of your life?”

Without thinking, Qiao Qiao spat out, “I’ll die!”

Qiao Jingmo raised his eyebrows. “Is it that serious?”

Qiao Qiao said firmly, “Yes!”

Qiao Jingmo said, “Then you might not be far from death.”

Qiao Qiao choked. She didn’t dare to refute. If she had a handkerchief in her hand, she would have bitten it hard and cursed Qiao Jingmo thousands of times in her heart.

That night.

The official announcement of the short video apologized to Li Xiwu in person.

It was probably because of the negligence of the backstage personnel that the account was hacked. Because the other party was too professional, the officials could not give a very detailed explanation, but they sincerely admitted all their mistakes.

They also promised that this would never happen again.

[Mother Dragon’s influence is indeed huge. The officials of the short video are really afraid of offending Mother Dragon.]

[If Mother Dragon is calculative, she will definitely change the platform. When the time comes, it will be too late for the officials to cry.]

[Did everyone see that? After Mother Dragon’s identity was confirmed, Mother-in-Law Joy’s official fan base increased by 500,000 overnight.]

[This is great. After confirming her identity, no one will dare to smear Li Xiwu again.]

[The rain has finally passed.]

Qiao Qiao was very relieved to read the comments. She thought that she had finally settled this matter. As she watched, Li Xiwu suddenly called her. The smile on Qiao Qiao’s lips froze. She looked up and bumped into Qiao Jingmo, who was looking at her.

Qiao Qiao slowly got up and wanted to go to the terrace to answer the phone. Qiao Jingmo said calmly, “Is there anything I can’t hear?”

Qiao Qiao straightened her back. “Are you sure you can listen to racy words?”

Qiao Jingmo: “…”

In the blink of an eye, Qiao Qiao was on the patio of the suite.

Li Xiwu’s voice came from the other end. “Qiao’er.”

Qiao Qiao wanted to speak in a cheerful tone so that Li Xiwu wouldn’t notice anything, but she couldn’t stop herself. “Bae…”

Li Xiwu had been worried that something would happen to Qiao Qiao. Hearing Qiao Qiao’s low tone, her heart sank. “Where are you?”

Qiao Qiao said, “By Qiao Jingmo’s side.”

Li Xiwu’s entire heart rose. “Did he lock you up?”

Qiao Qiao didn’t want Li Xiwu to worry too much. “No, he’s just here to take me back to Xingzhou. Grandpa misses me.”

Li Xiwu was very meticulous and guessed a little. “He should have imprisoned your freedom now, right?”

Qiao Qiao: “…”

Li Xiwu said, “Send me your location.”

Qiao Qiao had mixed feelings. “Don’t worry, I’m really fine. This time, Grandpa asked Qiao Jingmo to pick me up and bring me back to Xingzhou. Grandpa hasn’t seen me yet, so he won’t do anything to me.”

Li Xiwu immediately understood that Qiao Qiao wouldn’t tell her. However, Li Xiwu had also seriously analyzed that Qiao Jingmo didn’t hurt Qiao Qiao much. If Qiao Jingmo really couldn’t tolerate Qiao Qiao’s existence, he would have attacked her when she left home back then.

Why wait until three years later to take Qiao Qiao home? Unless Qiao Jingmo had never thought of doing anything to Qiao Qiao. It was just that Qiao Qiao was too guilty, so she would always imagine that Qiao Jingmo wanted to take revenge on her.

Changing the subject, she mentioned, “About the clarification matter…”
