Transmigrated into the Cannon Fodder's Daughter - Chapter 63.2
After signing the IOU, Su Lanqing quickly transferred over her money. Not wanting to cause any further problems, Ren Shaotang quickly transferred the money to Li Xiao.
Li Xiao transferred the money to her cousin, Xu Xufeng, and took out the truth talisman and glued an invisibility talisman on it. After stimulating the invisibility talisman using spiritual power, the invisibility talisman hid along with the truth talisman. The invisibility effect was usable once a day.
Li Xiao applauded her cleverness and handed the talisman to Zhang Yan, who would stick it on Ren Shaotang when she instructed.
Li Xiao opened the Douhu Live Streaming app. Over the past few days, she figured out Ren Shaotang’s ID on Douhu Live Streaming. His ID was “The Actor, Ren Shaotang.” He never scheduled any time to go live, so everything was spontaneous. Today, there had already been two live streams.
After making all the preparations, she entered the restaurant Ren Shaotang had reserved a spot at.
She walked into the restaurant, and the waiter led her to the table.
When Li Xiao pushed open the door of the restaurant cubicle, Ren Shaotang was already there. He was wearing traditional Chinese clothes today and looked quite suave and dashing.
Li Xiao sat in front of him and said, “Hurry and say what you intended to. Don’t waste my time.”
Ren Shaotang’s eyebrows furrowed. Li Xiao’s attitude made him very unhappy. He was her elder, so he should be treated respectfully.
Ren Shaotang sighed and said, “I admit. I was a bit prejudiced against you before, so I had you kicked out of that show after you entered.”
Ren Shaotang admitted this first in order to dispel Li Xiao’s suspicions.
Li Xiao glanced at her phone, and sure enough, he hadn’t started live streaming yet. Ren Shaotang obviously wouldn’t put himself at a disadvantage by admitting that.
Li Xiao smiled. “Well, since you’re done apologizing, I’ll be on my way now.”
She stood up, acting as though she didn’t want to talk to him anymore.
“Wait,” Ren Shaotang called out to her. “I have something I want to ask you.”
Li Xiao sat down once more and pulled out a piece of paper. “Here, sign an IOU. My time is very precious after all.”
Ren Shaotang gritted his teeth and signed the IOU, making him now owe here 10 million.
“Let’s drink some tea first.” After signing the IOU, he made a cup of tea. Having received relevant education since childhood, he was very skilled at the art of making tea.
At the same time, the restaurant cubicle started playing music, and the lyrics sounded like they were in Sanskrit, but at the same time, it didn’t seem like it was Sanskrit. The music was the type that would make one drowsy, hang their heads, and fall asleep.
Li Xiao raised an eyebrow. She wasn’t unfamiliar with this music. She had come across an evil lineage that was good at using music as their weapon, and this tune had a hypnotic effect. But it didn’t work on someone like Li Xiao, who had high awareness and strong spiritual power. It seemed that Ren Shaotang had really come prepared.
It seemed that the tea had been drugged as well.
Li Xiao picked up the teacup and drank the liquid under the watchful eyes of Ren Shaotang. However, under the cover of her hand, the tea did not enter her mouth.
She lowered her gaze and put on a dazed expression.
When Ren Shaotang saw this, he nearly leaped for joy. He had thought he would have to spend more time talking, but he didn’t expect things to go this smoothly. At first, he hadn’t intended to use this tactic, but Qianfei had said that Li Xiao was a wicked and scheming person who would easily piece together the clues if he didn’t take drastic steps. Ren Shaotang couldn’t wait to turn on his live stream.
Ren Shaotang looked at Li Xiao and said sullenly, “Jiayin has been missing for some time. You know about that, right?”
Li Xiao cooperated and replied. “Of course I know. She was arrested right in front of us for supposedly being involved in a murder, so she has to make a statement.”
From the corner of her eyes, Li Xiao saw that Ren Shaotang had started his live stream, and fans had immediately started watching and commenting.
【Shaotang is live! There’s no intro! So Sudden! Fortunately, I’m always on the lookout for him.】
【Huh, where is Shaotang? Is that Li Xiao?”】
【Arrested? Murder? Zhan Jiayin? Did I hear this right?】
【WTF!!!! Zhan Jiayin was arrested??? No wonder we haven’t seen her in forever!】
Immediately after opening the live stream, the comments exploded. Li Xiao watched the view count steadily soar with a satisfied glint in her eyes.
Ren Shaotang’s voice held a mix of anger and sadness. “Did you slander her? I mean, why else would she suddenly be arrested? She can’t even harm an ant.”
Li Xiao lightly laughed, and upon hearing her, Ren Shaotang got an ominous feeling.
“Shouldn’t you know the reason why she was arrested the best? Haven’t you read the police statement. For his own evil goal, Zeng Lunian mercilessly slaughtered innocent people. And Zhan Jiayin protected him, even when he had been arrested. Why shouldn’t she be arrested?”
“I’m not like Li Qianfei. I don’t enjoy slandering other people.
“I believe in the authorities. They won’t arrest innocent people, and Zhan Jiayin isn’t innocent. Speaking of which, Zhan Jiayin can’t even distinguish between right and wrong. Had she not saved Zeng Lunian, maybe all those innocent people would still be alive.”
Li Xiao gently tapped the table. This was her and Zhang Yan’s signal.
Zhang Yan promptly attached the talisman to Ren Shaotang’s back.
Ren Shaotang was so emotional he didn’t notice something was wrong.
“Jiayin was tricked by Zeng Lunian. She is too kindhearted and wasn’t able to watch her best friend end up like that.”
Li Xiao coldly said, “If she was so kindhearted, why would she be haunted by the people who died at the hands of Zeng Lunian? Zeng Lunain did everything for her. Her kindness is stained with the blood of innocent people. Zhan Jiayin surely knew what Zeng Lunian was doing, and yet, she still helped him hide it.”
“The only who helped Zeng Lunian get a fake ID was me. It wasn’t Zhan Jiayin,” Ren Shaotang blurted.
Li Xiao froze. This could be considered evidence, right? She had only wanted Ren Shaotang to admit his relationship with Zhan Jiayin. She never thought he would expose himself, but it seemed this turn of events was for the better.
“You must truly love Zhan Jiayin to not give up even after she got married. Did you plan on spending your whole life beside her, guarding her like some sort of knight? My father is truly being cuckolded.”
“Zhan Jiayin and I have a pure relationship. Don’t force your dirty ideas onto us. I only want to keep her safe. I wouldn’t do anything against her will,” Ren Shaotang angrily said.
Li Xiao felt that pure no longer had the same meaning that it did before.
Li Xiao nodded. “I understand. As long as you two don’t sleep together, your relationship will be pure. I guess my father doesn’t need an apology.”
After the words left her mouth, Ren Shaotang felt horrible. As soon as the topic of Zhan Jiayin came up, he couldn’t calm down. He had carelessly said things he didn’t mean. Only then did he remember he was still live streaming. He had wanted Li Xiao to admit she had slandered Jiayin, but it seemed things had turned against him.
His eyes fell on the cup in front of him. Had he just accidentally confessed?
Cold sweat dripped down his forehead, and he went to turn off the livestream.
However, it was already too late. The comments under the live stream had already exploded.
