Fierce Ex-wife: President, Please Be Careful - Chapter 780 - Girlfriend (2)
Upon hearing this, Yao Qingtao’s footsteps suddenly stopped. The hand holding the basin began to tremble slightly. She turned to look at that person and probed, “What do you mean by this?”
“If I said that your sister’s death was not an accident at all, and that I also know who the murderer of your sister was, would you want to avenge your sister?”
A muffled bang sounded in the room. The basin in Yao Qingtao’s hand smashed to the ground. The water in the basin rushed out of the basin and covered a large area of the floor. The owner of the home could not care less about this.
“My sister’s death… was not an accident? Someone killed her… how… how is it possible?”
The girl’s low voice echoed in the dark room. There was a trace of disbelief and an extremely grievous hesitation in her voice. It was as if she had been severely injured, but was unable to retaliate. She could only silently lick her wounds with her tail between her legs. It was heartbreaking.
Time flew by quickly. In the blink of an eye, the Zhao family’s anniversary celebration arrived as promised. The entire Zhao family was also bustling with excitement.
The anniversary celebration happened to be on a Friday afternoon, and the atmosphere of the anniversary celebration became even more lively because of the upcoming weekend.
In addition to the entire company’s employees, the entire anniversary celebration would also invite some of the company’s long-term partners, which also included associates from Duan Yarong, Zhao Shunrong, and Zhao Youlin’s connections.
The most unusual thing about the Zhao group’s anniversary celebration was that these partners would normally be invited by the company’s directors, department chiefs, and even the company’s higher-ups.
This was the time to flaunt one’s connections. If the person invited on the anniversary had a high status, it would add some points to the invitee. This was especially true for people like Zhao Youlin and Zhao Youming, who were already highly regarded as the future successors of the company.

Zhao Youming had invited a well-known real estate tycoon from Shalnork who had a long-term relationship with the Zhao Corporation.
In fact, with Zhao Youming’s current status, it would be difficult to invite this person, but it was different with the support of the company’s directors.
Zhao Yifei had been ousted from the company. The directors who had supported Zhao Yifei and made him equal to Zhao Youlin were now in an awkward position. When it came to the company’s internal strife… standing in the wrong position was undoubtedly fatal.
Previously, the one-track-minded support for Zhao Yifei had already cut off many people’s paths. Most of them had a bad relationship with Zhao Youlin. Now that Zhao Yifei had left without a sound… it was obviously too late for them to regret switching to Zhao Youlin’s side. Their only choice was to support Zhao Youming, who was also on the opposite side of Zhao Youlin.
Therefore, Zhao Yifei’s departure allowed Zhao Youming to take advantage of the situation, but he was wise enough to not count on it as his only ship.
Because Zhao Youlin was pregnant, she didn’t deal with the guests at the front. Instead, she sat alone in the corner and looked at the crowd surrounding Zhao Youming. A mocking smile appeared on her lips.
Zhao Youming chatted with the group for a while and instinctively felt that something was missing. He turned his head and immediately spotted Zhao Youlin in the corner.
Zhao Youlin was getting bored as she watched Zhao Youming greet the group of people beside him. Suddenly, he turned around and walked over to her.
Zhao Youlin steeled her face and instantly sat up straight, waiting for Zhao Youming to come over.
“Cousin, why are you here alone? Where’s President Mu? Why didn’t he come with you today?”
Zhao Youlin heard the silent dagger in Zhao Youming’s words and said with a smile, “He has something to attend to today, so he couldn’t come.”
Zhao Youming’s eyes flashed. He had expected Zhao Youlin to definitely ask Mu Tingfeng and Han Yichen to support her today. He knew that Han Yichen would come, but Mu Tingfeng’s absence had come as a huge surprise. Was this woman so confident in herself, or did she think that Han Yichen alone was invincible?
Although Zhao Youlin didn’t know what Zhao Youming was thinking, she could tell from his expression that this guy was probably plotting something again!
She was not bothered to explain herself. She just silently watched Zhao Youming’s wild thoughts and her expression changed unpredictably.
Zhao Youming pondered for a moment, he opened his mouth to probe again, “It’s a pity that President Mu isn’t free to come with cousin today. But cousin, today is the 35th anniversary, and you didn’t ask President Mu to come with you. Isn’t it a little too boring to just sit in the corner and be idle?”
Zhao Youlin picked up the cup on the table and took a sip. She said with a faint smile, “When did I say that I came alone today?”
Zhao Youming’s eyes flashed with a hint of understanding. He knew that Zhao Youlin would have plans of her own. Since Mu Tingfeng was not around, she must have other plans.
Unlike Zhao Youming, who was only the department chief, as the general manager, Zhao Youlin was allowed to invite two people, just like the directors and Zhao Shunrong.
Zhao Youming had thought that these two people were definitely Han Yichen and Mu Tingfeng. Now that Mu Tingfeng could not come, then…
“Then, one of your guests, could it be… Cousin Yichen?”
Zhao Youming called him “cousin Yichen” without any shame at all. Zhao Youlin glanced at Han Yichen, who was standing beside Zhao Shunrong not far away. He had his usual stoicism painted on his face, talking curtly with a few middle-aged men. She said plainly, “Big Brother wasn’t invited by me. It was dad and mom who invited him. And there’s no need to invite him. As the first-in-line successor of the Zhao family, it’s a given that he would be here today.”
Zhao Youming’s expression froze slightly, but he quickly recovered and continued to probe. “Then the person that cousin invited…”
“Who did I invite? You seem awfully curious.” Zhao Youlin slightly raised her eyes and stared at Zhao Youming with a faint smile.
“I’m just worried that my cousin will be a little lonely today.”
Zhao Youlin remained noncommittal. “It’s fine if I tell you, but it would ruin the surprise. They’re just some familiar friends.”
Zhao Youlin nodded. Seeing that Zhao Youming was still planning to ask more questions, the corners of her lips curled up and she cleverly changed the topic. “But let’s not talk about me. Let’s talk about you instead.”
Zhao Youming was stunned. “Talk about me? What about? Didn’t you see the person I invited just now? It’s that…”
“I’m not talking about that.” Zhao Youming had pointed at the real estate tycoon not far away and wanted to show off and provoke her. However, before he could finish, Zhao Youlin had already interrupted him.
Zhao Youlin looked at Zhao Youming’s slightly smug face and said pointedly, “What I want to say is, doesn’t Chief Zhao plan to have a girlfriend?”
