Chapter 12: It Was Me, All According to Plan
Huo Yunxi heard her question. He looked at her coldly and said after half a second of hesitation, “Yes.”
Li Xiaoman heard his answer, and her face turned pale instantly. She felt hysteric and wanted to scream.
She clenched her fists, looked at him coldly, and asked in fury, “Why? Why did you do that to me?”
“Why?” Huo Yunxi looked at her coldly. “What are you talking about? How dare you ask me why? If you didn’t hold onto the position of Mrs. Huo, Xia Lin wouldn’t have to feel so much pain. I don’t know what you did to my grandfather so that he forced me to marry you, but in my heart, you are not my wife. In my eyes, only Xia Lin is my wife. Only she deserves me.”
“I forced you?” Li Xiaoman laughed coldly at him. “Huo Yunxi, it was you who proposed to me; why did you say I forced you? Haha… you’re right, I don’t deserve you, as I said, there is a difference between animals and humans. How can I be a wife to a beast?”
“You…” Huo Yunxi looked at her with a livid face. He clenched his fists so tight that the knuckles started making popping sounds.
Li Xiaoman looked at his clenched fists, saying angrily, “What? Did I say something wrong? Huo Yunxi, you set me up like that. Do you even have a heart?”
Huo Yunxi yelled angrily, “You asked for it. You deserve this!”
After what he did to her, he still thought it was all her fault. Li Xiaoman felt that her heart was flooded with hatred.
“Huo Yunxi, you a-----e!” she screamed. Li Xiaoman looked at Huo Yunxi coldly, raised her hand, and slapped him.
Pa! It was loud and clear, and Huo Yunxi’s head turned with the force of the slap.
He was stunned since he had never thought that Li Xiaoman would hit him.
He felt the burning pain on his cheek and his eyes turned red; he looked at Li Xiaoman disbelievingly and yelled angrily, “How dared you hit me?”
As soon as he said it, he took a big step forward and strangled her neck with his hands.
Li Xiaoman felt like she was suffocating. She frowned and looked at him with her angry eyes that were full of hatred. She yelled, “You dared set me up, trap me, and ruin me, so why wouldn’t I dare hit you? Not only that, I’ll give you what you want. You set me up and tried to ruin me so that you can have a divorce? Fine, I’ll do it; we’ll divorce!” Cough… cough…
He released her, feeling stunned a little after hearing the word “divorce”, as if he had never expected to hear this word from her.
Then, he looked at her contemptuously, mockingly saying, “Li Xiaoman, you don’t deserve a divorce. Do you think I’ll let you have half of my family’s fortune after the divorce? In your dreams! You will never get a single penny from the Huo Family. After all, that’s all you want. You married me for my money!”
Li Xiaoman looked at him painfully with tears in her eyes. “Is that what you think of me? I married you just for the money?”
She knew people thought she was a gold digger, but she never believed that Huo Yunxi also saw her in that way.
At the party last night, she had tried to protect him and the reputation of the Huo Family, but in the end…
It was complete irony, to the extreme.
Huo Yunxi stared at her and asked coldly, “Isn’t that your plan? Li Xiaoman, I’ll kick you out of the Huo Family without giving you a single penny. Not only that, I’ll ruin your reputation, let people know what an unfaithful wife you are, and I’ll show my grandfather what kind of girl he forced me to marry.”
He turned around and walked upstairs.
