“Aiden, are you joking? Why would Auntie think that you’re stupid? What I mean to say is that our Nuannuan is stupid. After all, she came from the farming district and has never seen the rest of the world before, which is why she’d carry out such a scandalous act. However, you can rest assured as our Qianqian grew up under the strictest aristocratic education provided, that she’d never carry out an act like this.”
Aiden fumed with anger. He could not figure out why their wise and powerful big boss would rather stay in a broken family and be wronged than return to her kingly throne. He replied in a deep voice,
“You can exaggerate as much as you want, but you seem to have forgotten that Nuannuan had already handed the item to me right from the start, and that the person who will be attending the auction and handling the follow-up process will be myself. Nuannuan is just contributing her name to this arrangement. After all, the item belongs to her.”
Jiang Shuwan was speechless.
“Mrs Zhong, I’m very disappointed in you. I don’t think that a mother like you would have been able to raise good offspring. Goodbye.”
Jiang Shuwan was aghast!
Jiang Shuwan’s legs suddenly gave out, and she fell to the ground as she watched Aiden leave her view.
When she saw Zhong Nuannuan, she let out a shrill roar, completely forgetting that she had just written a 3000-word long deep reflective essay earlier that morning.
“What are you looking at? This is all because of you, you money-losing wretch! If Aiden leaves Qianqian because of this, you You should stop staying with the Zhong Family too!”
Oh my, she felt so scared!
Zhong Nuannuan was extremely wronged. “Mom, it was your loud voice that attracted Aiden and drove him off in anger. What does this have to do with me? I’m going to ask Dad to judge this!”
Now that the drama had ended, Zhong Nuannuan was too lazy to care for Jiang Shuwan any longer, and she turned to leave.
“Qianqian Qianqian Aiden, wait!”
As she thought that her own faults had costed her daughter a diamond-studded rich husband, Jiang Shuwan waited for the strength in her legs to return, then quickly rushed out, floundering and groveling.
On the other hand, after Zhong Qianqian saw Chi Yang left alone after Zhong Nuannuan was summoned by her mother, Zhong Qianqian cast a glance at Xue Miqi, who was standing nearby. When Xue Miqi got the message, she immediately straightened out her expensive but unfitting gown, then walked toward Zhong Qianqian on her 12cm-tall heels.
“Chi Yang, allow me to introduce someone to you. This is Nuannuan’s classmate, Xue Miqi.”
The moment he heard the two words “Nuannuan”, Chi Yang’s originally fierce expression softened a little, and he instinctively glanced at Zhong Qianqian and Xue Miqi, who were standing behind him.
Xue Miqi had been vaguely observing Chi Yang throughout the entire banquet, so she knew what Chi Yang’s usual expression looked like when facing strangers.
At this moment, when Xue Miqi saw that his expression toward her was much softer, her frenzied heart almost jumped out of her throat.
“Brother Chi Yang, I’d admired soldiers since I was young, and ever since I heard of your heroic deeds from Qianqian, I adored you even more. Brother Chi Yang, I respect you!”
At that moment, Chi Yang’s expression completely darkened.
Nuannuan’s classmate? This girl and Zhong Qianqian were both birds of a feather.
She dared to call him Brother Chi Yang…
This was Nuannuan’s unique way to address him!
Xue Miqi held her red wine glass and strolled toward Chi Yang gracefully, and before Chi Yang’s guards managed to stick a leg out to trip her, she stumbled on her own two feet and fell towards Chi Yang with a scream.
As she saw the red wine about to spill on Chi Yang, and her body about to crash into his, Xue Miqi’s eyes flashed a hint of excitement that she struggled to contain.
