“There’s nothing for us to talk about,” Ji Shiting said coldly. “Move aside.”
“I remember that your father Ji Ziliang died a long time ago, right?” Xiao Ruilang said with a confident smile. “Weren’t you curious about the cause of his death?”
Ji Shiting said, “Get lost.”
“It looks like you too know that he died from unusual circumstances.” Xiao Ruilang chuckled. “But you definitely don’t know who the mastermind is.”
Ji Shiting pursed his lips.
He looked at Ye Shengge and adjusted her coat. “Let’s go the other way.”
Ye Shengge was stunned hearing this, so she nodded hurriedly.
“It’s not the person whom you think it is.” Xiao Ruilang chuckled. “I have evidence.”
Ye Shengge saw that the man’s pupils had contracted to the extreme, and his breathing became irregular.
She pursed her lips and said, “How about I wait for you downstairs?”
Ji Shiting was silent for a while, then he nodded and said, “Look for Qiao Yanze or Yu Shuhang.”
Ye Shengge nodded, and Xiao Ruilang moved aside and smiled, “Take care, sister-in-law.”
Ye Shengge ignored him and rushed downstairs to the banquet hall.
The banquet hall was currently at its peak of excitement and many people were dancing. However, Ye Shengge didn’t want to join in the fun.
Her mind was filled with what Xiao Ruilang had said. She hadn’t expected Ji Shiting’s father to have died from unusual circumstances. Was it because of Xu Shaoqing?
Was this the reason why he had been so cold to Xu Shaoqing all these years?
On the deck, Xiao Ruilang took out a cigarette box and handed a cigarette to Ji Shiting.
However, Ji Shiting didn’t take it. He asked coldly, “What do you know?”
“My old man has always admired you, and he takes good care of you in business.” Xiao Ruilang bit his cigarette and smiled. “Haven’t you thought about the reason behind it?”
Ji Shiting eyed him coldly and sneered.
“You know the kind of person my old man is. He’s cold to the bone. He doesn’t even care whether his son lives or dies. And now he just admires someone? Impossible.” Xiao Ruilang smiled. “He used to compare you to me, which made me hate you… I never understood it before, but I later realized that he did it on purpose.”
Ji Shiting raised an eyebrow and said, “Are you saying Xiao Cheng is behind this?”
“That’s right.” Xiao Ruilang chuckled. “He’s the one who killed Ji Ziliang, but he doesn’t have the ability to destroy the Ji family in one go. Besides, your grandpa isn’t someone to be trifled with. He can’t find a chance to attack, so he might as well be nice to you and let you lower your guard. At the same time, he’ll make me hate you. He’ll be more than happy if I have the ability to get rid of you. If not, I’ll be used as cannon fodder to quell the Ji family’s anger.”
“Interesting deduction.” Ji Shiting nodded. “But what about the motive? You said he got my father killed. Why?”
“Why?” Xiao Ruilang suddenly laughed out loud. “That’s a good question. Did you know that my birth mother was tortured to death by this old man? After she died, that old man started to torment me again. Why do you think he did it to us?”
