Last night, Qi Xiangyuan saw Xia Xibei’s strength.
If Xia Xibei had grown up in the Qi family, then she would be the most favorable contender for the head of the family.
After all, a woman could also be the head of the Qi family.
However, Xia Xibei did not grow up in the Qi family.
She didn’t grow up in the Qi family, so she didn’t have the same resources nor the same relationships with people.
Therefore, even if Xia Xibei was talented, once she returned to the Qi family, if others tripped her up, she may not be able to fight back.
However, if she worked with Qi Xiangyuan, it would be much easier.
Qi Xiangyuan had the same idea as Qi Zhiqiang.
As long as they firmly controlled Xia Xibei, they would have more certainty and confidence in winning.
In this case, the best way to keep Xia Xibei under control was to introduce her to a man.
Women were all emotional, and as long as they had feelings for a man, they would not leave.
Therefore, Qi Xiangyuan chose his best friend, who was his cousin.
Although the Gu family’s development over the years was not great, the family still had a solid foundation.
When the time came and Xia Xibei married into the Gu family, she would be the bridge benefitting both sides.
Qi Zhiqiang and Qi Xiangyuan, with their outstanding daughter and sister in Xia Xibei, could gain the favor of the family patriarch and have more resources.
With the full support of the Gu family, they would be able to compete with Qi Zhi’an.
By then, Qi Zhiqiang could be the head of the family!
As for the Gu family, they would also be able to get Qi Zhiqiang’s backing.
It would be a win-win for everyone.
As for Xia Xibei, she wouldn’t lose out either!
Gu Yinglei’s family background and conditions were very good.
If he announced to the public that he wanted to get married, there would be many girls chasing after him.
Every time he appeared, there were always a bunch of girls clamoring over him.
With Xia Xibei’s status as an illegitimate daughter, being able to be with Gu Yinglei would be a godsend!
Xia Xibei was just a starlet with no background.
Sure, she was glamorous and everyone knew of her, but if you really compared the wealth, how could she compare with their family?
So, Xia Xibei was like Cinderella!
They thought that if she knew about this opportunity, she would be very happy.
To their surprise, even after their good planning, in the end, Xia Xibei didn’t take the bait!
Flowers were sent, but she didn’t show up.
They invited her over, but she refused.
Gu Yinglei was a little upset. However, it also aroused more interest in him.
If Xia Xibei was easily obtained, he wouldn’t have been interested.
It needed to be more challenging.
“All right, you will have more chances later!” Qi Xiangyuan patted Gu Yinglei’s shoulder, comforting him. “I promise to create more opportunities for you! All right?”
“You have to remember that!”
Gu Yinglei held up his glass and nodded at him.
“Don’t worry, we’ll help you out with ideas!”
The other man from before also raised his eyebrows at them.
“Right. Hey you!”
Gu Yinglei immediately became interested and sat down next to the man. “Han Xiang, what’s that trick of your family again. Can anyone use it?”
“Well…” Han Xiang smiled, and after a beat, he nodded. “As long as the other party takes the drug, naturally there is no problem!”
These words excited both Gu Yinglei and Qi Xiangyuan.
“Really? What is the drug?”
“I have it,” Han Xiang continued to smile smugly. “However, it can’t be given to you.”
“You brat! Aren’t we good brothers? Give it!”
