Since Xiao Cheng was dead, Li Yinian had the freedom to be with anyone. How could Xiao Cheng be cheated on?
“Yanze,” Ji Shiting said.
Qiao Yanze seemed to have just noticed the two of them. He nodded at Ji Shiting but didn’t say anything.
Xiao Ruilang looked at Ye Shengge and smiled.
His eyes were calm, but the meaning behind them was unreadable.
“So it’s Brother Shiting and sister-in-law,” he said lazily.
Ji Shiting shot him a cold glance and looked at Li Yinian. “Ms. Li, Shengge said she hasn’t seen you in a long time and has a lot to talk to you about. Why don’t you head back with her first?”
Li Yinian was stunned, and she glanced at Ye Shengge.
“That’s right.” Ye Shengge smiled. “Come here. We haven’t seen each other in a long time.”
Li Yinian hesitated for a bit, nodded and walked toward her.
Xiao Ruilang’s subordinates hesitated, but didn’t stop it since Xiao Ruilang didn’t say anything. Most importantly, they knew it was useless to stop Ji Shiting’s bodyguards.
“Thank you,” Li Yinian said as she walked closer.
Ye Shengge grabbed her wrist and smiled at her.
“What do you mean, Brother Shiting?” Xiao Ruilang said as Li Yinian walked over. “I know my stepmother had a relationship with Fourth Young Master Qiao, but I didn’t know she had one with you.”
Ye Shengge rolled her eyes.
Fortunately, neither Ji Shiting nor Qiao Yanze were affected by that sentence.
“As far as I know, Li Yinian has given up the right to inherit as a widow. Are you going to give up half of the inheritance by asking her to return to the Xiao family with you?” Qiao Yanze sneered after seeing that Li Yinian was safe.
“Seems like you’ve done a good job investigating.” Xiao Ruilang chuckled. “Are you worried about her situation?”
“Cut the crap.” Qiao Yanze frowned. “Either you don’t harass her anymore, or you give her back the inheritance rights. Xiao Ruilang, choose for yourself.”
Xiao Ruilang lit up another cigarette and said, “But I want this stepmother, but I don’t want to give her the inheritance.”
Qiao Yanze looked angrier.
“Young Master Xiao.” Ji Shiting looked at him and said disdainfully. “Xiao Cheng built the foundation of the Xiao family, but whether you can defend it depends on your ability.”
Xiao Ruilang’s eyes shrank upon hearing how Ji Shiting addressed him.
However, Ji Shiting was probably the only one who couldn’t flare up even if she called him that.
“Besides, something happened on the cruise on the day of Li Yinian and Xiao Cheng’s wedding.” Ji Shiting looked at him and curled his lips. “Perhaps I should encourage Mr Jun to investigate.”
This was a blatant threat.
The cruise ship was still in the middle of being salvaged. But once it was fished up, it might be discovered that someone had tampered with it. It wouldn’t be impossible to attack Xiao Ruilang then.
Xiao Ruilang’s lazy expression finally disappeared. He stood up straight, and after a while, he suddenly smiled and looked at Ye Shengge. “It looks like you’re on good terms with Mr. Jun, Brother Shiting. Did you ask sister-in-law to meet Mr. Jun in private?”
