Old Master Jiang loudly chuckled. “You playful lass. You are still trying to find excuses for your absence?”
“I don’t dare to.” Xuxu knew that she was speaking to an elder, so she only teased him appropriately.
Old Master Jiang pointed at her reprovingly with a rather doting expression, just like how a grandfather would look at his granddaughter. Then he turned his attention towards Jiang Qinglian. “Qinglian, when did you come back? Is Weiye back with you?”
Jiang Qinglian replied with a slight bow. “I came back two days ago. He is a little busy, so I came back alone.”
As the conversation went on, Jiang Zhuoheng and Hu Xiaoxiao had their eyes fixed on Wen Xuxu. However, both their motives were vastly different.
“So many people are present tonight. I suppose it’s an official meet-up between the two families.”
The usually reticent Young Master Yan at such gatherings suddenly spoke as he surveyed the entire Jiang family. Then his eyes finally landed on Jiang Zhuoheng and Hu Xiaoxiao with a smile.
( Boxno vel. co m ) At the same time, he casually stretched his hand and wound it around Xuxu’s waist.
Jiang Zhuoheng’s mother smiled. She remarked, “Third Yan, you’re absolutely right.”
She seemed rather eager to boast and flaunt.
She wasn’t feeling too kind towards Xuxu, too. Just some time ago, Ah Heng and Third Yan had come to blows because of her.
Yan Rusheng’s smile deepened when he heard Jiang Zhuoheng’s mother. He glanced at Hu Xiaoxiao and said, “Miss Hu and our dear Young Master Jiang are really a match made in heaven. They look so compatible together.”
Hu Xiaoxiao wasn’t stupid, and she knew that Yan Rusheng had purposely lavished praises on them. She pretended to be bashful and smiled. “Xuxu and you is the real match made in heaven.”
“That is…” Yan Rusheng wanted to say ‘right’ but someone had interrupted him.
Old Master Jiang suddenly sneered. “Hmph!”
Yan Rusheng was quite annoyed at being interrupted, so he glanced at the old man with a puzzled expression.
Old Master Jiang continued, “Xuxu being paired with you is barely satisfactory.”
Yan Rusheng pursed his lips…
He tightened his grip on Xuxu’s waist as though he was trying to say, ‘You can carry on feeling unfair or upset, no matter how you feel, Xuxu is still part of my Yan family.’
Xuxu couldn’t wait to strangle this childish fellow as she gnashed her teeth in anger.
A huge group of them stood near the restaurant’s entrance and not only did it cause an obstruction, but they were also attracting unwanted attention. Xuxu glanced at Grandfather Jiang and whispered, “It’s very windy outside, Grandfather you should go back early.”
“Mmm.” Old Master Jiang strode towards the entrance but after a few steps, he said, “Remember to play chess with me when you’re free.”
If this was in the olden days, then Old Master Jiang would be the emperor’s father. Everyone flocked closely behind him as soon as he took a step forward.
“Sure.” Xuxu smiled and readily agreed.
After the Jiang family left, Yan Rusheng lowered his head and inched towards Xuxu’s ear. He gnashed his teeth as he tried to suppress his anger. “So you were looking at Jiang Zhuoheng just now, and that’s why you were in a daze, right?”
Without a doubt.
Xuxu didn’t understand what Yan Rusheng was referring to. She felt confused as she glanced at him. “What?”
She then recalled the incident before dinner, and she gave Yan Rusheng an exasperated look.
Once they got in the car and had shut the door, Jiang Qinglian was a bit hesitant as she said, “Third Yan, send me to the airport.”
Xuxu frowned. “It’s so late, why are you going to the airport?”
Jiang Qinglian grabbed Xuxu’s hand and placed her hand on hers. She smiled gently. “I didn’t say goodbye to you in the morning, and I felt bad and sorry. Now that all is well after we had dinner together, I want to go back to Runan.”
