Chapter 360: Why didn’t you think about me
He came back sprinting all the way, his footsteps entering the door were rapid, and his quiet eyes giving away traces of panic.
When he came to the living room, he first combed the room and finally turned towards Fang Chixia.
Fang Chixia was still lost in thought, pondering on a better way to explain to him.
When his figure came out of the blue, she froze and her eyes fell silently on his face.
After a brief exchange, she couldn’t tell if it was only her illusion, but there seemed to be worry written all over his face.
Fang Chixia has no idea why he suddenly came back, but she intuitively thought of the hundreds of millions she has just squandered.
She stared at him silently. Since she couldn’t come up with a better way to explain, she simply chose to confess: “I used the card you gave me.”
She came clean cautiously.
She was afraid of causing the same redundant misunderstanding.
Luo Yibei has always thought that she was in trouble since she didn’t pick up his call. He even conjured up a variety of possible situations while driving back speedily.
He looked at her sharply and coldly questioned: “Why didn’t you answer your phone?”
It took a moment for Fang Chixia to respond, she glanced at her cell phone not far away, and explained, “I didn’t hear it.”
Her answered fluttered light as feather, playing the understatement without stirring great waves.
It made Luo Yibei feel like he was punching cotton, and the anger that accumulated all the way back was stung by her back to his chest.
“What’s going on?” Instead of pursuing the phone call, he pulled the subject back on track.
His tone only remained cold with no hints of anger.
This surprised Fang Chixia, who pictured him sharply scorning her and her purpose in marrying him, after she has withdrawn such a huge sum of money.
But it appears that Luo Yibei wasn’t going to prosecute her.
Fang Chixia explained with some timidity: “The Fang Family is in trouble. Dad is ill and needs money to pull through the crisis.”
Fang Chixia has no affection for the other members of the Fang Family. But it was Fang Mingcheng who brought her to their home at that time, on principle, she couldn’t completely disregard his grace.
This money would be regarded as compensation to his family.
“Why didn’t you come straight to me?” Luo Yibei swept her face still stone-cold.
Fang Chixia was stunned and wanted to clarify, but reminded of the phone call picked up by Su Ran last night, she swallowed it back.
“I’ll find a way to return the money to you.” She averted her gaze and looked away.
“Your ring design can offset these hundreds of millions.” Luo Yibei said with no care.
His retort struck Fang Chixia dumb.
Was he going to give her the proceeds of the ring auction?
Fang Chixia was overwhelmed, but it allayed her discomfort.
Those hundreds of millions were earned by her own efforts so she can use them more comfortably, much better than owing him so much.
At least, the worry for owing him a favor has now been scrapped.
“Why didn’t you think of finding me?” Luo Yibei pressed again.
He was stuck on this issue and seemed he won’t be done with it until he gets the answer he wants.
“I didn’t want to bother you so late.” Fang Chixia sidestepped without mentioning Su Ran answering his phone, and went out with Tuantuan.
