“Sorry, I don’t know you, so I’m afraid I can’t answer your questions.” Ye Shengge forced a smile. “Can you let us leave?”
The man placed his hand on the car window and smiled at her.
Ye Shengge then realized that the man had light brown eyes, making him look gentler and more harmless when he smiled.
His appearance was so deceiving that Ye Shengge couldn’t help being on guard.
“You’re lying.” The man chuckled. “Your expression tells me that you don’t just know me but you also have some understanding of me. Besides, your pupils are dilated and your heart is beating fast… You’re afraid of me. Why?”
He couldn’t have sounded gentler.
Ye Shengge broke out in cold sweat.
“You’re mistaken, sir.” Her smile stiffened. “I don’t know what your motive is, so it’s natural for me to be afraid.”
“No.” The man looked at her, and the smile in his eyes deepened. “On the contrary. You’re afraid because you know what I want.”
Ye Shengge opened her mouth, took a deep breath, and said, “Okay, I admit that I’ve seen you before, Young Master Xiao. I’m one of the lead actors of ‘Xue Ning’, and I was there when you picked Mu Xiaoya up. I schemed against Mu Xiaoya today, and I reckon you’re going to get payback for her, which is why I’m afraid.”
Naturally, Xiao Ruilang knew everything that had happened on the set, and he also knew that Ye Shengge had framed Mu Xiaoya. This had been the reason he had personally come over to stop her.
“I can’t thank you enough for exposing her lies so why would I bother you?” He smiled once more and his voice became gentler. “Since Mu Xiaoya isn’t Summer Wood, where’s the real Summer Wood, huh? That’s the real reason I’m here today.”
“I don’t know,” Ye Shengge answered calmly. “I only know that Mu Xiaoya isn’t Summer Wood, but I don’t know who the real Summer Wood is.”
“You only know that Mu Xiaoya isn’t Summer Wood,” Xiao Ruilang repeated with a chuckle.
“That’s right. I used to be Mu Xiaoya’s agent. I know very well whether she’s Summer Wood or not,” Ye Shengge explained. “However, I don’t know where the real Summer Wood is.”
The man stared at her for a few seconds, then he knocked on the window and smiled, “Then, be an obedient girl and hand it over.”
“What?” Ye Shengge was dazed.
“The videos.” Xiao Ruilang said matter-of-factly. “Since you won’t tell me who the real Summer Wood is, I can only continue to treat Mu Xiaoya as Summer Wood and I can’t let you post this video.”
Ye Shengge was rendered speechless.
…This man was indeed unpredictable.
She couldn’t figure out how much this man knew, so she forced a smile and said, “Young Master Xiao, Mu Xiaoya is an impostor. Are you actually willing to let an impostor stay by your side?”
“No.” He blinked at her. “But I have no better alternative. After all, I can’t find the real Summer Wood.”
Ye Shengge was dumbfounded. The hard disk in her hand felt like it was burning.
She had finally found a chance to expose Mu Xiaoya’s true colors. Was she going to let her get away with it again?
However, she couldn’t tell that man that she was Summer Wood. If not, she might not be able to return to Qianfan Villa.
