C11 How Do You Know Her?
"Lyi Chuxi is not the member of the Lyi Family! I can't believe it."
"Please, do you really believe it?"
"You've seen it, haven't you? I mean, the Lyi family picked someone up from the countryside, and besides, Lyi Chuxi didn't deny it. God, I can't believe that the high and mighty daughter of the Lyi family was actually a fake!"
Their gloating voices echoed across the campus.
Ji Qingzhan frowned slightly as he shifted his gaze to the student who had her head lowered.
Originally, he wasn't interested in these types of things.
However, when he caught glimpse of a familiar face, he changed his mind and decided to see what it was all about.
"Qingzhan, when have you been interested in these types of things?"
Sheng Zhengyuan finally came over and curiously stuck his head up to see what was going on.
"Who is that girl?"
He asked casually.
He didn't expect Ji Qingzhan to look over and know the answer. The man was famous for not getting along with any type of woman. In fact, there were even rumors that he liked men.
Suddenly, his friend replied,
"She's the daughter of the Lyi Family, Lyi Chuxi."
His eyebrows raised in interest. "How do you know her?"
"I've seen her in the banquet once." He shrugged. "I just remembered her, that's all."
Sheng Zhengyuan rolled his eyes. "Please, when have you ever recognized people just by their faces alone?"
He remembered that there had once been a daughter of an unknown family who confessed to Ji Qingzhan. Instead of simply refusing her, the man gave her a look over and asked her who she was. The girl's surprised and devasted expression was forever imprinted in his mind!
How could he have known her?
"I remember that the real daughter of the Lyi Family was taken and exchanged by Lyi Jiaming's ex-lover. While they had brought back their real daughter, I didn't expect that they would publicize the matter."
While others may not know of this issue, the Sheng and Ji Families were extremely well-connected to know everything about everyone.
As long as they were interested in the matter, no news could be hidden from them.
The young woman stood quietly on the sidelines while the other woman struggled to explain,
"No, Xi is also the biological daughter of my parents. I just let it slip. I didn't mean..."
She appeared quite flushed, not knowing what to do.
However, the smugness in the girl's eyes didn't escape Sheng Zhengyuan's gaze.
He pursed his lips. "It appears that the true daughter is beginning to show off her true colors. Lyi Chuxi appears innocent in this matter, but now that the secret has been revealed...I don't think she'll be able to handle the public's reception."
He shook his head in sympathy.
Lyi Chuxi was still quite young.
How could he handle this much chaos?
Ji Qingzhan was too busy observing the crowd when he suddenly smiled.
He tilted his head.
Sheng Zhengyuan froze, looking up at him.
