Xuxu went to get their luggage.
“Your uncle insisted on getting them here?”
Jiang Qinglian’s voice trembled as she spoke. It was as though she had been suppressing her emotions with Xuxu’s presence earlier on.
Xuxu stopped at where she was.
Yan Rusheng answered, “Regarding this matter, I will definitely seek your opinion.”
He was sincere and earnest.
Overwhelmed, Jiang Qinglian suddenly grabbed Yan Rusheng’s arm. She seemed to be pleading with him. “Xiaosheng, I don’t wish to see them.”
She knew that if Yan Weiye were to fetch them back, he wouldn’t bring them to C City. Instead, he would arrange for them to stay in the Capital City and to enter Flourish & Prosper.
Therefore, Yan Weiye would still need Yan Rusheng to agree.
“Alright, I understand.” Yan Rusheng promptly nodded and gave her a reassuring smile. “No matter what First Uncle’s request is, I will stand on your side.”
“Xiaosheng, thank you.” Instead of feeling relieved or happy, Jiang Qinglian frowned when she heard Yan Rusheng’s promise. She bowed her head and sighed heavily. “But if that’s the case, your uncle might go over to them instead.”
She didn’t want her husband to leave her.
By then, Xuxu thought that women are really foolish.
First Aunt still couldn’t bear to leave First Uncle despite knowing the truth.
She thought to herself, “If First Uncle were to return to her right now, First Aunt would definitely reconcile with him regardless of his affair or his illegitimate children.”
But even if she was this forgiving and even… so submissive, the man didn’t even budge.
She had seen so many rich men in her life. Regardless of their age, it seemed that only Aunt Mu Li and Second Uncle seemed to be the only couple that had remained steadfast to each other.
“Yan Rusheng, will you make the same mistake someday?” If one day he would find out that a woman had his child before, and that she couldn’t give birth to a child in the future.
What would he do?
She used to understand him very well, but now that she wasn’t a mere onlooker, she couldn’t be certain anymore.
“I’ve already said that I’m on your side.” Yan Rusheng still insisted in an unyielding tone.
To Jiang Qinglian, that reassurance from him was paramount. Although they weren’t fighting over the family fortune, it doesn’t mean that they don’t care at all.
Furthermore, the people who will share the inheritance with them were her husband’s mistress and her children. She had already snatched her husband away, was she intending to take away the family fortune and property as well? She couldn’t take it lying down.
Jiang Qinglian fell silent for a moment before speaking once more. “Are they doing well?”
Yan Rusheng quipped, “Their finances are stable.”
Jiang Qinglian wore a rather mocking smile. “Why shouldn’t they be? Your uncle flies there so often and it has been some time since I’ve last seen him.”
A woman like her was considered a complete failure.
Yan Rusheng didn’t know how to console someone, and he was usually a reticent man. Today he had spoken so much to reassure Jiang Qinglian, and it somehow had substantially consoled her.
He said, “Rest early, tomorrow I’ll ask Xuxu to tour you around tomorrow.”
He stood up and walked towards the door.
Xuxu heard his footsteps, and she walked inside. She glanced at Jiang Qinglian.
Jiang Qinglian stood up and smiled weakly. “I’ll go up and rest now. Both of you should turn in early too.”
She turned around and left.
Xuxu tiptoed to whisper in Yan Rusheng’s ear. She warned him and reproached, “Yan Rusheng, you’ve promised to stand on First Aunt’s side. Don’t you dare waver.”
