Qiao Yanjue soon discovered the person who did it after an investigation.
In fact, there was no need for him to investigate much; the other party revealed themselves.
The Land King project in D City was one of the Qiao Group’s priorities. As early as a few months ago, Qiao Yanjue had began to work on it.
Even when he was in G City before, he did not slack off.
After he seemed to be getting better and better after working hard for several months, someone naturally got anxious.
This person was his elder brother, Qiao Weiyue.
In fact, long before that, Qiao Weiyue had plotted against Qiao Yanjue.
When Qiao Yanjue first met Xia Xibei, he was being attacked by Qiao Weiyue’s people.
Now, as the Land King project was about to be successful, Qiao Weiyue was of course even more anxious, always looking for ways to intervene.
However, Qiao Yanjue was not easy to mess with and did not give him the opportunity to interfere.
It was just that Qiao Yanjue didn’t even think that Qiao Weiyue would cooperate with Li Weiyun!
These two people had nothing to do with each other before!
Only after careful investigation did Qiao Yanjue discover the exact reason- Qiao Weiyue might have been fooled!
“Fooled?” Xia Xibei looked puzzled. “What do you mean?”
Qiao Yanjue sneered, “He probably thought that it was just a poison.”
Xia Xibei had said before that it was not too difficult to put the Love Spell on someone, they just had to ingest the insect eggs.
Before the compulsion insect hatched, its eggs were very small, colorless, and tasteless. Like a powder, it easily dissolved in water without attracting attention.
Qiao Weiyue had thought that it was a drug that would affect a person’s mind, and after eating it, it would have a dramatic effect on one’s intellectual and mental state.
If Qiao Yanjue’s thoughts were confused after taking this poison, he naturally couldn’t handle the Land King project, and it would have to be handed over.
Moreover, this project was halfway done, so if Qiao Yanjue could not afford to continue, he could take all the credit!
By then, he would have gotten the Land King project, and his position in the Qiao Group would be secure.
But how could he have known that this was not a poison, but a compulsion?!
And it was a compulsion that would affect both sides!
What’s more, he could not imagine that Qiao Yanjue would not be affected, but Li Weiyun would be controlled and actually take the initiative to give him the information.
Now, not only did Qiao Yanjue not lose, he even succeeded!
If Qiao Weiyue hadn’t sneered at Qiao Yanjue before, Qiao Yanjue wouldn’t necessarily have suspected him.
After Qiao Yanjue found out he was under a spell earlier, he started to look around just in time to find out that something was wrong with Qiao Weiyue.
When he won the project, Qiao Weiyue’s reaction became even more intense.
“He even scolded his wife, saying she had lied to him.”
Speaking of which, Qiao Yanjue couldn’t help but snicker.
“This has something to do with his wife?”
Xia Xibei was a little surprised, but it made sense.
Qiao Weiyue’s wife, Wan Yunfei, was definitely his match made in heaven; they were both snakes.
“Right,” Qiao Yanjue hummed. “Wan Yunfei and Li Weiyun also had dealings, so it’s only natural that they would work together.”
After all, they didn’t live far from each other and were in the same circle, so it was normal to have interactions.
He just didn’t know how Li Weiyun had actually fooled Wan Yunfei, and how Wan Yunfei told Qiao Weiyue.
If it wasn’t for Xia Xibei, Qiao Yanjue would have really fallen into the pit they created for him!
Xia Xibei smiled coldly, then asked, “Then what are you going to do?”
“Naturally, it’s an eye for an eye.” Qiao Yanjue curled his lips… “It seems that I was too nice before.”
