Kiss Me Goodnight, Mrs. CEO! - Chapter 677
She looked at the clock on the wall and realized that it was already five o’clock.
“You’re leaving early again?” She stood up and watched him walk to the desk to pick up his coat before walking out of the office with her in his arms. He smirked and said charmingly, “I’m the boss.”
The night was dark, and the depressing secret room was eerily quiet.
A tall figure stood in the dim light, while another stood in the shadows. Both their faces obscured by casted shadows.
“Why wasn’t the medicine you found not effective at all? I saw her today, and there wasn’t the slightest hint of abnormality!”
The figure standing in the shadows was an old man.
“That’s impossible. As long as she ate it and smelled the carnation in their yard every day, it’s impossible for there to be no abnormality!” the man said affirmatively.
Under the light, the tall figure finally tilted her head, revealing Li Chengcheng’s refined face.
However, at this moment, there was a hint of ruthlessness and coldness on it.
She looked at the man in front of her. “But there was nothing unusual about her. You said that the medicine would cause her to have hallucinations and nightmares, to be mentally deranged. But when I saw her today at Di Zun and she couldn’t be any better!”
“Xi’er, don’t be so anxious. After all, the medicine is slow—”
“How can I not be anxious?!” Li Chengcheng couldn’t help but shout out, “Do you know how much effort I put in to plan all this? I was about to succeed last time, but I didn’t expect that b*tch Xiao Cui to go back on her word at the last minute. She made my efforts fall short and almost exposed my identity! If I hadn’t been able to persuade Qiu Yun to be my scapegoat, I would have been dismembered a hundred times by Shi Yuting!”
Li Chengcheng could not help but feel a lingering fear when she thought of the previous incident. Fortunately, she had been prepared and did not let Shi Yuting find out about it.
However, after going to Di Zun today, he seemed to have begun to suspect her. Otherwise, he would not have suddenly asked about Li Chengcheng’s injury in the cruise accident.
“Xi’er, don’t panic. As long as you can think of a way to make her eat another pill, the medicinal effect will immediately spread to every cell in her body. When that time comes, even if a god comes, he will not be able to save her.”
Hearing this, Li Chengcheng finally calmed down. She raised her gaze and looked at the old man in front of her. “Are you sure?”
“Of course. Don’t tell me you don’t believe Grandfather’s words?”
Tengtang Xi was stunned.
That day, if Grandfather’s men hadn’t rushed to the sea in time, she would have drowned long ago.
It seemed that the heavens were on her side as she even encountered a cruise ship that suddenly exploded, allowing her to change her name and become the young miss of the Li family.
Since the heavens did not allow her to die and gave her a chance to ‘be reborn’, she would definitely kill Zuo Weiyi this time!
“However, ever since that incident was exposed, Shi Yuting has become even more cautious towards her. He has bodyguards with him almost 24/7. I’m afraid it will be very difficult for me to poison her again.”
“Then let’s use another method to poison her.” For the sake of his granddaughter, Tengtang Li had already thrown caution to the wind.
In the past, he was still a little wary of Zuo Yi.
However, ever since he had been removed from his position, he no longer had to fear Zuo Yi. Without his identity as a member of Parliament, he felt relaxed and no longer had to worry about anything.
Upon hearing this, Tengtang Xi turned her eyes. “Another method of poisoning?”
