Glancing at Enoch, who was still sleeping in bed, Xia Ning headed out with her phone in her hand.
She went out to the balcony of the living room and dialed the number. But this time, she was the one who couldn’t get through. The person on the other end wouldn’t pick up.
Xia Ning looked at her phone with a frown, then raised an eyebrow. Was he trying to set her off?
She waited in silence for a while, then dialed the number again.
This time, the call was soon picked up.
“Su Jingcheng, what the hell do you want?!” Xia Ning growled.
“Ke, today is New Year’s Eve!”
Xia Ning raised an eyebrow. “So what? Don’t you people have your own arrangements already?”
“You’re the eldest daughter of the Su family and you’re absent. Do you know how this will make other people think?”
“Isn’t that what you want? Stop pretending that you actually care about me.” Xia Ning snorted. “You know perfectly well what you want.”
“I see that you’re having a great time over there!” Su Jingcheng lowered his voice to a whisper. “Grandpa was very unhappy that you didn’t come back.”
“Since when was he ever happy with me?” Xia Ning said sarcastically. “You, on the other hand, have always been his perfect, obedient heir!”
Su Jingcheng fell silent for a while on the other end, then said, “Ke, you have less than a year.”
“I don’t need you to remind me.”
“Do you like that man that much?”
“That’s my own business!” said Xia Ning coldly.
“Ke, have you forgotten about our agreement? Although you still have a year, I don’t want you to be around that man anymore. Leave him now! Otherwise, I can’t promise what we’ll do. Don’t blame me when that happens!”
Xia Ning flared up at those words. “What else do you know apart from threatening me?! Let me tell you this. When the day comes when I gain control over everything, you’re the first one I’m going to kill! That promise will never expire!”
“I’m looking forward to that day, but before that, I need to remind you. I let you had things your way once, but it doesn’t mean that you can keep doing it. I won’t do anything to you, but that doesn’t extend to other people.”
“Then you have my sincere gratitude!” Xia Ning smirked. “You make it sound as if he’s so easy to handle.”
“Shengshi Group is indeed a giant, and it’ll be difficult to shake its foundation, but who told you that I was going to target his career?” Su Jingcheng almost sounded cruel over the phone. “You’re with him only because you have a child together. If…”
“Su Jingcheng, shut up!” Xia Ning looked frightened for a split second. Gritting her teeth, she said coldly. “You’re not touching my son!”
“I see that you have completely lost your mind,” said Su Jingcheng mildly. “You know what I’m capable of, which is more than enough to handle a baby, your child.”
“Argh…” Xia Ning growled. Scratching her head, she looked ahead with widened eyes. “Touch him and I’ll kill you! I promise!”
“And I believe that,” said Su Jingcheng quietly. “But I’ll still do it.”
“What the hell do you want?!” Xia Ning slowly couched down and leaned against the railing. She said between gritted teeth. “You’re not going to stop until I’m dead, are you?”
“Ke, I’m not the one who hurt you. I think you’ve forgotten about that.” Su Jingcheng said calmly. “You have a month. Don’t disappoint me!” After that, he hung up!
