as a tomato. She turned his head and did not dare to look at Li Xiaoran.
Li Xiaoran stuffed his hands into the pockets of his white coat. With his languid temperament and excellent looks, he exuded an aura that was superior to all the men in the Li family.
“Li Zecheng waited for you outside for seven days and seven nights. If youre willing to see him, Ill call him in.”
Qiao Ans hands gripped the sheets so tightly that the color drained from her ruddy fingernails.
Li Xiaoran saw her reaction and his eyes darkened. “Ill help you get rid of him.”
Qiao Ans thoughts calmed in a flash.
“Call him in,” she said.
Li Xiaoran frowned and turned to walk out the door.
“Zecheng, come in.”
As soon as Li Xiaoran finished speaking, Li Zecheng barged in.
He came to the bed and looked at Qiao An, who was as thin as a skeleton. Only his eyes were like stars in the night, bright and flickering. Li Zecheng was clearly put off by Qiao Ans ugly appearance.
In the end, he mustered his courage and grabbed Qiao Ans hand. He complained helplessly, “Anan, why did you jump off the building? I didnt say I wouldnt save you. I only saved Wei Xin first. You know that Wei Xin is weaker than you. Youve always been strong and brave. Thats why I chose to save her first. Sigh, you women are so petty.”
Qiao Ans cold hand pulled weakly from Li Zechengs palm.
Li Zecheng was stunned. “Anan, are you still blaming me? Did you misunderstand my relationship with Wei Xin? Theres really nothing between us! You also know that the Wei family and the Li family are business partners. Her father has always been very supportive of me. Im grateful for Uncle Weis support, so I treat Wei Xin as my biological sister and take care of her. Thats all.”
Jo Ann closed her eyes as tears filled them.
Li Zecheng clearly did not love her, but he had to pretend to be a loyal husband. It was obvious that he was trying to protect his image. His behavior disgusted her.
“Divorce,” Qiao An said softly.
She knew that Li Zecheng had stayed in the marriage because many of his assets had grown rapidly after he married her. They belonged to the common property of the marriage. If they divorced and she wanted to take half of his assets, Li Zechengs strength would be halved. This was a fatal blow to him.
“Divorce?” Li Zecheng seemed to have been stung by a wasp and became fearful.
He couldnt divorce Qiao An. Even if he didnt love her, he couldnt leave her.
Speaking of which, it was strange. After he and Qiao An got married, his life seemed to have become a breeze. The old man also treated him differently and even wanted to hand over the Li familys assets to him.
If Qiao An divorced him now, the old man would definitely retract his will.
“Anan, we cant get a divorce. Youre in a difficult time now. If I leave you at this time, will I still be human? I know that I didnt save you in time and that made you upset. Dont worry, Ill definitely treat you well in the future and let you see my sincerity. If I still cant move you after a year, then I agree to the divorce.”
Li Zecheng thought that Qiao An was still innocent and easy to coax. As long as he coaxed her and acted pitiful, Qiao An would be obedient to him.
Qiao An smiled.
Li Zechengs calculations were very quick. A year later, he would already have established himself in the Li family. Naturally, he would be able to kick out his wife by then.
“My mind is made up.”
