Chapter 350: Could it be Si Ye Han?
Translator: eunimon_ Editor: Caron_
In the banquet hall, it was completely silent as everyone's eyes immediately shifted from Ye Yiyi and Gu Yue Ze to Ye Wanwan.
Everyone initially thought that Ye Yiyi was the one who invited Mei Jing Zhou to celebrate Ye Hong Wei's birthday but just now, great master Mei Jing Zhou said his presence had nothing to do with Ye Yiyi.
Following what Mei Jing Zhou said, the smiles on Ye Yiyi and Gu Yue Ze's faces instantly froze.
"What great master Mei meant was... you were invited by Ye Wanwan?"
"Of course," Mei Jing Zhou said matter-of-factly.
"..." Gu Yue Ze choked.
Although Ye Wanwan looked calm and expressionless on the surface, deep down, she was in complete turmoil.
What's going on?
Why did Mei Jing Zhou say he knows me and that he's here at grandfather's birthday because of my request?
I'm afraid nobody in all of Imperial City can invite Mei Jing Zhou; how was I able to invite this great god?
Ye Wanwan didn't understand until a name randomly flashed in her head.
Si Ye Han?!
If he was behind this, getting this great master to come would be a piece of cake.
But... how could that be...
It was already an enormous favor for him to not prohibit her from going to the birthday banquet, so why would he go to such lengths to present such a great gift to her grandfather?
How could Mei Jing Zhou be here not because of Gu Yue Ze's dad's invitation but instead, because of me?
Gu Yue Ze was obviously in disbelief and wanted to continue probing, but he saw that Mei Jing Zhou's attitude was very clear and if he kept asking, he'd only make a fool out of himself.
Thus, he could only put on a calm and composed face and say, "Whatever brought you here, we're glad you were able to make it today."
Ye Yiyi also chimed in earnestly, "That's right, as long as grandpa's happy! I really didn't expect that Ye Wanwan would know someone like great master Mei Jing Zhou..."
At this moment, the entire hall was filled with exclamations of surprise.
"Seems like we were all wrong--this granddaughter from the Ye family, who was said to be useless and incompetent, is actually a lady with hidden talents!"
"Exactly! She's actually friends with someone like Mei Jing Zhou despite their age gap! Which person from the younger generation in Imperial City could accomplish that?"
"Even if Ye Shao Ting is down and out now, as the saying goes, a tiger father would never beget a dog daughter!"
At this moment, Ye Hong Wei viewed Ye Wanwan in a different light once again.
Could it be that this granddaughter, whom he had completely given up on, had really been enlightened and straightened out her thinking...?
After Ye Wanwan modestly chatted a bit with grandpa and everyone else, she found a chance to speak to Mei Jing Zhou alone.
"Mr. Mei, do you really know me?" Ye Wanwan looked at him with an inquisitive gaze.
Although he didn't seem to have any ill-intentions, this whole situation was fishy, so she still wanted to clear things up.
Mei Jing Zhou said earnestly, "Of course, Ms. Wanwan. Why do you ask?"
Seeing that Mei Jing Zhou was steadfast in his convictions, Ye Wanwan grew even more suspicious as she mumbled, "How could that be? Why don't I recall meeting you..."
"I'm afraid you've forgotten, little friend!" Mei Jing Zhou didn't change his expression and looked a little disappointed even.
The corners of Ye Wanwan's lips twitched, "I'm still very young..."
"What do you mean?" Mei Jing Zhou was confused.
Ye Wanwan smiled slightly. "What I meant was that it's not possible for me to get dementia at such a young age. I think I really don't know you, Mr. Mei!"
Mei Jing Zhou coughed lightly.
Ye Wanwan didn't want to beat around the bush, so she asked directly, "Mr. Mei, did Si Ye Han send you here?"
