Li Yinian’s pupils constricted.
That’s right, this was indeed her plan. She wanted to get rid of Li Changdong and send him to prison once and for all. Therefore, she intended to guide Li Changdong on this path. If he was really imprisoned, her mother would have no choice but to listen to her arrangements.
No matter how much she owed Li Changdong, she had already repaid it completely when she left the Li family. At least, she had repaid it in her heart.
He hadn’t disturbed her life much in the past few years, but since he refused to let go, Li Yinian didn’t intend to be polite.
“What if I say it’s not?”
“Then everything will go smoothly for him. With me as his backer, he won’t come looking for trouble with you again,” Qiao Yanze said without hesitation.
Li Yinian bit her lip and said, “Let’s send him to jail.”
Qiao Yanze suddenly smiled.
“Are you trying to say that I’m a heartless woman again?” She smirked.
“No, I’m glad.” Qiao Yanze smiled. “I’m worried that you’ll be soft-hearted. He’s your father. Logically speaking, I should respect him, but I hope a father who can sell you to an old man like Xiao Cheng goes to hell.”
Li Yinian looked down and pulled her hand back. Qiao Yanze was caught off guard and couldn’t help laughing at himself.
“Is there anything else I can do for you?”
“No. It’s enough as long as you remember your promise.” Li Yinian turned to the front of the car. “Drive. It’s not appropriate to park here. Just send me to Tianyi.”
She then gave him the address.
Qiao Yanze’s breathing was heavy and slow. He stared at her for a long time before looking away and replying softly, “Okay.”
Shang Tianyi had made a lot of money in the past few years, so he bought a duplex house in a high-end building. It was incomparable to a mansion like the Ji family and the Qiao family, but it was still a good main residence.
Shang Tianyi was still alone. He had been so busy over the past few years that he had not been in a relationship at all. His needs in certain aspects were basically resolved by one night. Sometimes, when Li Yinian found it inconvenient to return to the Jade Spring Palace, she would temporarily stay at his house.
Qiao Yanze drove the car to the door and helped her carry her luggage to the door.
Li Yinian found the keys to the house from a flower bed. She turned around and was about to open the door when she realized that Qiao Yanze was standing not far away. His dark gaze was fixed on her.
He seemed to have looked at her like this several times today. The deep pain made Li Yinian’s palms ache, and she almost broke down again.
She bit her lip.
To be honest, she still preferred this man’s fearless and unrestrained appearance. When he was overwhelmed by negative emotions, he always seemed overly cold and unreasonable. Those peach blossom eyes that had once tempted her had also restrained all the light in them, pulling at her nerves and all her emotions.
She walked over but didn’t look at him. “You can go back now.”
“There’s a problem.” The man suddenly grabbed her wrist and said in a low and hoarse voice, “No matter what your answer is, it won’t change our relationship. I’ll still keep my promise.”
“What?” She took out her keys and prepared to open the door.
“Do you still have me in your heart?”
