Chapter 46 – Within One’s Remit
After Duan Shu Tong left, Xi Duan and Cen Ning walked directly into the hospital, completely ignoring Li Xiao.
Li Xiao was embarrassed and couldn’t help clenching his fists. His eyes almost bled red with blood. If these two people had not swindled and abducted Ruo Wei, he would not have done what he did, and Ruo Wei would not have gotten hurt.
Fortunately, Ruo Wei was fine; otherwise he would not forgive them!
“President Xi,” Li Xiao suddenly took a step forward, blocking the entrance to Pei Ruo Wei’s ward. “This is a matter between her and me. It has nothing to do with you.”
Cen Ning, who was watching, thought to himself: It didn’t matter if this situation did not concern President Xi before, because now it has become his concern. Since he promised Young Master Duan, the boss definitely would not break his promise.

Xi Duan finally turned his gaze to Li Xiao. He was a few centimeters taller than Li Xiao. His glacial expression gave the impression that he was looking disdainfully at Li Xiao out of the corner of his eye. It was like a warning look.
“Openly breaking the law and committing a crime, this matter really has nothing to do with me.”
“You!” Li Xiao panted roughly, “Xi Duan, Ruo Wei is pregnant, with my child, I will marry her, you and Duan Shu Tong stop meddling in our business!”
The sound of high-heeled shoes approached from far away, and a beautiful woman came up to Li Xiao. His eyes widened in surprise. The woman raised her hand and slapped him across the face!
“Li Xiao, you really amaze me.” Lin Man Man’s voice was quaking and filled with suffocating anger. After slapping Li Xiao, she wanted to rush into the ward.
Experiencing betrayal by her fiancé, she could not calm down. She really wanted to see what the woman who bewitched the Li family’s heir looked like.
With swelling and painful cheeks, Li Xiao cut a sorry figure. He raised his head, unable to restrain his anger: “Lin Man Man! What are you doing?!” He didn’t forget to block her entrance into the ward even as he shouted at her.
Lin Man Man was so angry that her face twisted into a smile instead: “You’ve dishonored me so much. This slap of mine is considered quite light.”
She was the honorable daughter of the Lin family. When has she ever suffered such grievances? Li Xiao really stepped over the line!
Li Xiao wanted to refute, but then he saw a team of medical staff approaching them. The leader of the group adopted a respectful expression upon laying eyes on Xi Duan.

“President Xi, we came to arrange a new hospital ward for Miss Pei.”
Xi Duan nodded lightly, “Thank you, Director Han.”
Director Han waved his hand hurriedly and said with a smile: “I do not deserve your thanks, President Xi.” Then he directed the doctors and nurses into the ward.
Li Xiao felt that something was wrong, and stretched out his arm to stop him. “What is the meaning of this? Why are you changing wards? Director Han, the dean and I had an agreement…”
Director Han interrupted him with a smile, “Miss Pei’s current situation requires a peaceful place to recuperate. And this place is indeed quite noisy.”
After he finished speaking, he forcefully broke through Li Xiao’s blockade and led the medical staff into the ward to wheel the unconscious Pei Ruo Wei out of the room.
Li Xiao didn’t understand what was going on. He was worried that if he tried to fight them over this he would hurt Pei Ruo Wei again, so he could only watch Pei Ruo Wei leave his sight.
Wasn’t the Li family investing in this hospital? Why did the dean suddenly change his mind?
He couldn’t help looking at Xi Duan.
Xi Duan didn’t want to waste his breath on Li Xiao at all. Pei Ruo Wei has now been transferred to a special ward, and Li Xiao would not be able to get in without his permission.
He no longer needed to stay here and waste his time, so he turned and left.
“President Xi!” Lin Man Man suddenly called out to him. There was a bit of hesitance on her peach-like face. “Do you like her too?”
She didn’t even know Pei Ruo Wei’s name. Just now, she only got a quick glimpse of the other woman. Her complexion was wan, and she looked so dreary and colorless. What was the appeal? Even someone like Xi Duan had to work hard for her.
Xi Duan turned his head to look at her. His gaze was as calm as always. And he looked way too serious for no reason at all. “No. I was simply entrusted with her care.”

‘Tch.” Li Xiao sneered and said sarcastically, “Don’t think that I don’t know you gave her flowers before!”
Xi Duan sighed secretly after hearing those words. He really regretted what he did before, and now he couldn’t wash himself clean of this.
Cen Ning glanced at his boss’s expression, and he couldn’t help the jolt that went through his body. He actually saw a regretful expression on President Xi’s face!
This was an event worthy of celebration!
Xi Duan did not explain any more, and left the hospital without bidding farewell or excusing himself.
Liu Zhi Fei had yet to return from driving Duan Shu Tong home, but there were more than one chauffeur in the Xi family. When he got out of the hospital, there was already a car waiting for him.
As soon as Xi Duan got in the car and was about to send a message to Duan Shu Tong, he received a call from the housekeeper.
“Sir, you are busy with work, and I didn’t want to disturb you, but knowing that you have returned to Yan City, I think I should tell you something.”
“What is it?”
If Uncle Sun was looking for him it could only be something related to his nephew, Xi Yu.
Uncle Sun said: “The Young Master got into a fight with someone today, and he was injured a little bit. He is in Renguang Hospital. Do you want to go see him?”
Xi Duan pinched the center of his eyebrows, “Exactly which consulting room is he in?”
After getting the detailed information, he hung up, got out of the car and went into the hospital again.
