Chapter 88: Divorce Settlement
Seeing her son look gloomy, Li Xuehe asked in confusion, “What’s wrong, son? Didn’t you want to have the divorce a long time ago, but she refused? Let me handle it today, Mom will take care of it! Once you got divorced, marry Linlin as soon as possible. Don’t wait till her pregnancy shows…”
“Mom…” Huo Yunxi didn’t wait for Li Xuehe to finish and he shouted to stop her. His eyes flashed with a slight trace of panic. He glanced at Li Xiaoman’s cold face and then looked at his mom and said, “Mom, I’ll take care of it. Could you and Lin… Xia Lin give us some privacy?”
Hearing Huo Yunxi call her Xia Lin, Xia Lin clenched her fists stealthily and looked disappointed. “Yunxi…”
Huo Yunxi glanced at her, but he didn’t answer. Instead, he turned to Li Xiaoman and said in a less cruel tone, “We need to talk.”
Li Xiaoman glared at him and said, “There is nothing to talk about. I’ll sign the settlement.”
Then she reached out to get the divorce settlement from Huo Yunxi, but he wouldn’t let go of it.
Seeing that, Xia Lin clenched her hands. Her fingernails fell deep into her palm, but she was unaware of it. Her eyes filled with jealousy and hatred of Li Xiaoman.
Li Xuehe saw Huo Yunxi not giving Li Xiaoman the divorce settlement, and her face changed. She stared at her son in confusion. “Yunxi, what are you doing? Let go of it! Let her sign it!”
Huo Yunxi looked at Li Xuehe and said, “Mom, come out with me, I have something to tell you.” Then he dragged her out of Li Xiaoman’s room.
Seeing Huo Yunxi and his mother leaving, Xia Lin dumped her gentle and sweet look immediately. She glared at Li Xiaoman with disdain and said sarcastically, “Sister, although we didn’t find your secret lover, it doesn’t mean you don’t have one. I wouldn’t have guessed that my ‘always innocent’ sister would cheat. No wonder people always say never judge a book by its cover! Ah, I almost forgot that you already had an affair long ago. You are no longer pure and innocent. Don’t worry, I’ll make sure Yunxi divorces you as soon as possible so that you and your adulterer can be together.”
Xia Lin glared at Li Xiaoman with a sneer and turned around to leave. But she was tripped by the mess she and Li Xuehe created.
“Ah…” Xia Lin screamed as she fell onto the floor and grimaced in pain. Li Xiaoman stared at Xia Lin coldly. “The evils we bring on ourselves are the hardest to bear. You deserve it! F*ck off!”
“You…” Xia Lin stared at Li Xiaoman and said angrily, “Li Xiaoman, don’t be smug. Just wait, I’ll become the mistress of this house!”
Then she got up from the ground and rushed out.
Seeing her leave, Li Xiaoman stepped forward to close the door immediately and then searched the room thoroughly. However, there was still no sign of Long Sihao.
She sat down on the bed in worry, and she took out her phone. She wanted to call Long Sihao and ask where he was, but she didn’t know his number.
There were over 20 missed calls on her phone and they were all from last night. She frowned slightly. She had a feeling that these calls were from Long Sihao.
