Professor Xi is A Woman? - Chapter 3
The young bride who looked confused was none other than Alina Xi, (Xi Ying Yue). The long-forgotten heiress of the Xi Corporation.
She was rumored to be a fake princess as she had a tendency to disappear for years without anyone knowing where she would be.
She was dead to most of the relatives yet like a grim reaper she came back to take their horrid souls away.
But with her naive disposition, it would be hard to say whether she was going to be a grim reaper or not.
Alina’s hatred was equal to her love. She would give everything to the people she loved but she would also destroy everything that she hated.
She was well known for her ruthlessness and indifference towards strangers, while her love for her family could reach the stars, even though they never reciprocated her affections.
She always believed her family would never harm her.
The reason they suddenly remembered her was because of her big fat, meaty bank balance as well as the two elders’ will.
Amongst the three grandchildren, two were biological, and she obtained 1/4 of the company shares as well as the state buildings.
The youngest daughter who was more intelligent than her and shared the same blood didn’t even get as much as 25% of the company shares.
Nobody understood how this ignorant lass received such a large portion of the shares. Even though she couldn’t be compared to her brother in intelligence, she managed to obtain 2nd highest share in the company while her brother was given 50%.
Giving half of the company shares to Allen Xi was understandable since he was closer to the two elders, and the only male heir. Moreover, the young man earned his place as well as the deep respect from the others, unlike Alina.
Even though the elders pampered her, indulging her with 25% of the company shares, it was still very perplexing.
Hence many people eyed her wealth.
They believed she was too dumb and didn’t understand the value of money. And they were correct, she didn’t understand the value of money. Alina found money to be worthless.
Since young, she was spoilt rotten by her grandparents while being ignored by her parents. Her grandparents were the light that guided her on the road.
The sudden demise of her grandparents struck her hard as she suddenly lost her lights. She was a strong girl, but the unexpected accident left her lost. She was just like a little piglet ready to be butchered.
How would she go on without her grandparents?
Even her parents couldn’t take their eyes off her wealth. Unlike the adopted son, she was their daughter and hence easy to manipulate.
So, they decided for her to get married as soon as possible. With the right timing and situation, they forced her to sign the papers. Moreover, their future son-in-law was in this together with them.
The situation seemed to be at their advantage since elder Xi engaged Alina to one of the children of the Li’s. And what was more terrific, the man they chose was actually the childhood sweetheart their younger daughter and he loved her dearly.
Together, they could manipulate Alina and exploit her from the inside. There was no better strategy than to have the husband she was going to marry to take part in their scheme.
Their younger daughter was their pride and she was even able to secure Jamie Li to take part in their plans. Alina could not even be compared to their baby girl’s toenail.
Jamie Li was from the branch family of the Li household, one of the most prominent families in the country of Zor.
The two children’s marriage was decided by the elders. It was indeed a happy occasion.
Unfortunately, Jamie was in love with her sister Carolina and not her. But at this moment, he was intrigued by this clueless girl.
She was heading to her doom and yet she looked so innocent and naive. Looking at this clueless lamb, a new feeling rose up from his heart. He suddenly felt very protective of her and wanted to shield her from the world. But when he thought about his future and the power he would soon gain, he steeled his heart and killed off the new feeling. She was a very important tool in his plan, and he cannot afford to be softhearted at this moment.
He needed to be with Carolina.
Everyone around him was just chess pieces and that included his soon to be wife.
She was just a tool for him to use and throw away once she became useless.
When the groom, Jamie, asked Alina if she was alright, she looked at him dazedly and then turned to look around. She looked utterly confused, like a lamb in the wolf’s den. Ready to be slaughtered.
Alina turned her head around and looked at her surroundings. She was baffled by the situation she was in. She didn’t know what was going on and why she was holding that man’s hand.
What was this place? Wasn’t she dead? Hell wasn’t meant to be so decorative, and why was she so close to this man?
