Stealing Your Heart Chapter 86

“Sorry, I was held up.” Lin Xinyan explained to her.

“Stay in touch.” Yu Doudou made a hand gesture for talking over the phone to Lin Xinyan and said, “You can also call me if you need a lift.”

Perhaps due to the common enemy, their relationship unknowingly became closer.

Lin Xinyan nodded her head.

“Fine. I’ll leave you to it. I’ve to get going.” Yu Doudou waved his hand and drove away.

He would have no income if he stopped driving.

“Ms. Lin, who is he?” Qin Ya asked out of curiosity.

How did she make a friend so easily by just taking a cab?

As Lin Xinyan didn’t want to talk about it, she just said calmly, “Why are you so anxious? Who wants to meet me?”

Qin Ya patted herself on her head and said, “I’ve almost forgotten the most important thing.” Lin Xinyan pulled Lin Xinyan and continued, “I’ve invited her to wait in the office since it is the least messy place.”

The office was Lin Xinyan’s, and she cleaned it up earlier on.

If not, there would be no other places for them to stay.

Lin Xinyan was curious to know who wanted to meet her.

“Who is that? A man or a woman?” Apart from He Ruize, she had no friend in the country.

“It’s a woman who calls herself Madam Zong. She’s rather beautiful and elegant.” Qin Ya peeked at Lin Xinyan to see her expression.

Her ex-husband is Zong Jinghao.

Is this Madam Zong her ex-mother-in-law?

Lin Xinyan frowned and thought to herself. Madam Zong?

There was no weeding nor ceremony when Zong Jinghao and her got married. She had not even seen any of Zong Jinghao’s family members.

Madam Zong? But based on what she knew, Madam Zong passed away a long time ago. Would she be… Lin Xinyan seemed to know who she was.

Aunt Yu said before that Zong Jinghao’s father remarried not long after his mother passed away.

Therefore, she could call herself Madam Zong.

But what does she want from her?

Lin Xinyan had lots of doubts.

“She’s inside. Call me if you need anything.” Qin Ya brought Lin Xinyan to the door of the office but didn’t intend to enter the office.

Lin Xinyan nodded. She opened the door only after Qin Ya left.

The office was tidied up with an office desk, a couch and a coffee table. The floor was swept too. The entire office looked rather empty and not even drinks could be served.

An elegantly dressed woman was standing in front of the sliding windows. Although Lin Xinyan couldn’t see her face, she had long hair with a bun and apparently kept her body in good shape.

As she turned around after hearing some noise, she saw Lin Xinyan standing near the door and asked, “Are you Lin Xinyan?”

Lin Xinyan could see her face clearly as soon as she turned around. She certainly withstood the test of time as she was still outstandingly beautiful.

She clasped her hand gently above her waist. She was wearing an Omega watch on her wrist, a plaid dress and a pair of black high heels and carrying a black shoulder bag on her right arm.

She might have dressed plainly as she was not wearing any superfluous jewelry, yet radiating her natural refinement.

“Yes, I am.” Lin Xinyan walked into the room and asked, “Is there anything I can do for you? I don’t really know you.”

Yuxiu smiled softly and said, “We should have already met when you’re married into the Zong family, yet…” Because the relationship between Zong Jinghao and them was not good, he didn’t bring Lin Xinyan back to meet them.

After registering their marriage, Zong Qifeng did make a call to Zong Jinghao and asked him to bring Lin Xinyan to meet them, yet Zong Jinghao declined their invitation.

The divorce that happened afterwards was also decided merely by Zong Jinghao. They only received the news when everything was done and dusted.

Lin Xinyan gave her a knowing smile and replied, “I know.”

Since the marriage with Zong Jinghao was merely a trade, it was nothing unusual that he didn’t introduce her to his family.

“Please have a seat.” Lin Xinyan gestured Yuxiu to sit down.

Yuxiu nodded lightly and sat on the couch.

Sitting in front of her, Lin Xinyan was silently waiting for her to open her mouth.

Since she wanted to see her, she must have something important to tell her.

Yuxiu sized up Lin Xinyan and thought that she was very young and beautiful. She finally said, “I heard that you’re 18 when you’re married to Jinghao.”

Lin Xinyan nodded and replied, “Correct.”

They fell silent for two seconds.

“Do you know that Jinghao was supposed to be engaged to someone else?” Yuxiu asked.

She was gazing at Lin Xinyan as she spoke.

She wanted to see the change of her facial expression.

Lin Xinyan answered honestly, “Yes, I do.”

“And he broke off the engagement afterwards. Do you know that too?”

“I do.” Lin Xinyan lowered her eyes and pondered over the reason that she wanted to meet her.

Judging from what she said, it could be related to Zong Jinghao.

“Well, do you also know the reason that he broke off the engagement?”

Lin Xinyan didn’t know the reason behind it.

She looked up at Yuxiu and replied, “I don’t know.”

She pointed at the office and said, “As you can see, I’ve just come back from overseas. I’m not really sure about the things that happened here, particularly due to the fact that we were divorced.”

Although it wasn’t stated in black and white, Lin Xinyan had always believed that they were divorced.

She remembered what Zong Jinghao said at that time. Let’s get a divorce.

Once he said that, their marriage was over.

Yuxiu surprisingly said, “You don’t know that?” She obviously couldn’t believe that Lin Xinyan wasn’t aware of it, and continued to ask, “Don’t you know that he broke off the engagement because of you?”

Lin Xinyan was now surprised instead.

He broke off the engagement because of her?

Isn’t it nonsense?

“I think there might be some misunderstanding. As you are aware, how could it happen because of me as we were divorced for many years?”

Yuxiu shook her head and was confident that there was no misunderstanding about it. Based on Mr. Feng’s investigation, Zong Jinghao broke his engagement with He Ruilin when he saw her in Country A

He might have really fallen for her after they were married. Hence, when Zong Jinghao saw her and felt that his love for her rekindled, he subsequently broke the engagement with He Ruilin.

“You must have heard of the Zong and He families, which are the prominent families in B City. If the two families can come together due to the marriage, it will indeed be a strong union of two families. This will be beneficial for both the He and Zong families.” She looked at Lin Xinyan and said with a soft voice, “Before he went overseas and met you, he was willing to marry Ms. He. Since they knew each other for so long, both of the families valued the marriage very much.”

“So, are you trying to persuade me to leave Zong Jinghao?” Lin Xinyan wanted to laugh it off and said, “I think you’ve misunderstood something. We had never been together. “

They had never been in a real relationship.

It appears that she got the wrong person.

Yuxiu slightly frowned as she said, “Both of you hadn’t been together?”

Lin Xinyan nodded and said confidently, “No.”

“To break off the engagement, he… hurt himself. I didn’t witness it but heard it from Mr. Zong. He grabbed a fruit knife and plunged it into his chest… so that he could break off the engagement.”

“What?” Lin Xinyan stood up suddenly.

How did he get the wound on his chest?

He harmed himself? Was he insane?

Yuxiu was observing Lin Xinyan’s reaction and believed that she really wasn’t aware of it.

“Why would he do that?” Lin Xinyan couldn’t get it.

“His engagement to Ms. He was in the news. As there was a close business relationship between the two families, he certainly had to bear certain responsibilities if he was the one who broke the engagement. Also, since Ms. He saved him by accident in the past and worked for him for a long time, he would feel guilty towards her as ending the engagement would bring about huge impact on her.” Therefore, when He Ruilin said she wanted him dead, he really complied and did it to himself.

He might hope that by doing so, he wouldn’t be indebted to her.

Yuxiu heaved a sigh and said, “I heard that as Ms. He loved Jinghao deeply, she went to pieces when she got the news that their engagement was going to end.”
