The Reincarnated Goddess is Fierce - Chapter 465 - Another One
Chapter 465: Another One
Qiao Yanjue’s face sank, his voice cold and hard.
“So according to you, I should starve?”
How dare she say that her son was human, and he was not. Did he deserve to die due to hunger?
Qiao Zhiqing was startled by his coldness, but quickly recovered. “It’s not that you can’t be allowed to eat, but Zhikun is now at the police station. You-”
“I’ve already been over there. He did commit a crime,” Qiao Yanjue interrupted her.
“Impossible!” Qiao Zhiqing shrieked, “There’s no way he could have done such a thing!”
“If you don’t believe me, you can come back and see for yourself.”
Sensing that he was about to hang up, Qiao Zhiqing got anxious.
“Qiao Yanjue! He’s your nephew!”
“If he wasn’t my nephew, do you think I would have gone over there?” Qiao Yanjue’s voice was even colder now.
Before, they were unwilling to admit their familial relationship, but now they were trying to make him feel guilty because they were family.
Qiao Zhiqing choked for a moment, but quickly perked up again. “Then why don’t you get him out?”
“He made a mistake, so how can I save him?” Qiao Yanjue asked rhetorically. “Do you think I have the power to do that?”
“Of course you do!” Qiao Zhiqing immediately replied.
“Sorry, I don’t.” Even if he did, he wouldn’t save him.
“Qiao Yanjue!” Qiao Zhiqing was going crazy.
“Qiao Zhiqing.” Qiao Yanjue interrupted her in a cold voice. “If you’re so anxious about your son, you might as well come back quickly. I’ve done everything I can. I can’t help with the rest. You can look for your elder brother and second brother, I’m sure they’ll be more than willing to help you.”
“Brother…” Qiao Zhiqing heard Qiao Yanjue’s ruthlessness and immediately softened her stance. “Brother, that’s your nephew. He’s still young, just help him out!”
“Twenty-two years old is still young?” Qiao Yanjue snorted. “Why do I remember you saying I was a grown-up when I was 12 years old? He’s 22 and still young?”
Qiao Zhiqing choked again and asked sheepishly. “You still remember what happened before?”
“Does it matter if I remember or not? I really can’t help,” he said lightly. “Okay, I’m hungry. I need to eat.”
The person on the other end was still talking when Qiao Yanjue hung up the phone.
Xia Xibei held her chopsticks, looking at Qiao Yanjue in worry.
“Are you okay?”
Qiao Yanjue showed a tired smile, facing her beautiful eyes. “Nothing, just a little tired.”
Xia Xibei nodded, she understood. It was his heart that was tired.
Although she didn’t hear what was said on the phone, she knew from Qiao Yanjue’s response that it wasn’t anything good.
“It’s okay. When we get back, I’ll give you a massage,” she said as she gave him a chunk of meat. “Eat more meat and you won’t be tired.”
Qiao Yanjue smiled, “OK.”
Seeing him eat, Xia Xibei let out a sigh of relief.
The fact that he could eat meant that there was nothing seriously wrong with him.
However, after eating and returning home, Qiao Yanjue’s phone rang once again.
Xia Xibei raised her eyebrows. Another one?
“How’s the matter with Zhikun?”
On the other end, Qiao Weiyue’s voice was authoritative.
“It’s still under investigation.”
“You didn’t get him out?” Qiao Weiyue asked in displeasure.
“How was I supposed to get him out?” Qiao Yanjue’s eyes were cold and impolite. “I’m not a cop, and this isn’t the imperial capital. How am I supposed to do that?”
“Couldn’t you have asked your friends to help? Haven’t you been there for a while now?”
Qiao Yanjue was exasperated by his righteousness, retorting, “Sorry, I don’t know anyone, and I can’t help much. It’s not like you don’t know that I’m too young for a big job, so how can I know any powerful friends?”
Qiao Weiyue was so upset by his retort that his face turned pale.
