Yu Yuehan stopped in his tracks and turned his head back.
Nian Xiaomu stood still at the original place and did not follow behind.
Cheng Xiulu stood before her and lectured with an air of arrogance. Nian Xiaomu knitted her eyebrows; it seemed like she had something to say, but when she looked at the guests around her, she restrained herself.
Cheng Xiulu wasn't someone who knew when to stop.
She was insufferably arrogant when she saw that Nian Xiaomu did not dare to utter a word.
She wanted to take this chance to establish her authority by lecturing Nian Xiaomu so that everyone was aware of her status in the Yu Family.
Just when she wanted to speak, she heard a deep and low voice say, "Why are you still not coming in?"
"Young Aunt is lecturing this insensible servant. I am coming right away!" Cheng Xiulu heard his voice and was delighted that Yu Yuehan actually greeted her in front of so many people.
She suddenly felt proud!
She couldn't be bothered with Nian Xiaomu, who was just a lowly nurse. Grinning from ear to ear, she turned around and prepared to head forward.
She had just walked two steps forward when she realized that Yu Yuehan's gaze was not on her, but on... Nian Xiaomu who was behind her!
Before she could wonder whether she was the one who had bad hearing, she heard Yu Yuehan's voice again.
"Nian Xiaomu, why are you still standing there?"
Nian Xiaomu: "..."
It had never crossed her mind that someone like Yu Yuehan, who cherished his words just like he treasured gold, would call her out in front of so many people.
She finally moved her mouth after staring blankly for a few seconds.
She wanted to say something, but realized that she did not know what to say.
She lowered her head and walked to him.
"Yuehan, she has no right..." Just as Cheng Xiulu wanted to speak, Yu Yuehan cast her an icy cold glance with a look of warning inked under his eyes.
She could only watch as Yu Yuehan handed Xiao Liuliu, who was in his arms, over to Nian Xiaomu.
It was only now that she realized that although both Xiao Liuliu and Nian Xiaomu were not wearing the exact same skirt, they were of the same color series.
At a glance, they looked like outfits for both a mother and a daughter!
Many others also realized what Cheng Xiulu had discovered.
In an instant, the way they looked at Nian Xiaomu changed from stunned looks to questioning looks...
They witnessed as Xiao Liuliu reached out her arms, hooked onto Nian Xiaomu's neck, and leaned against her chest intimately.
The people nearby sucked in their breaths.
The way they looked at Nian Xiaomu became fervent!
Everyone knew that this daughter of Yu Yuehan's, who appeared out of nowhere, was his favorite.
At every event that both father and daughter attended over these past two years, Yu Yuehan would personally be the one who carried her and did not entrust her to anyone else.
But now, there was actually a lady who was capable of taking the child from his arms...
"Follow me." Yu Yuehan lowered his eyelids and looked at her before opening his mouth lightly.
With one of his hands tucked in the pocket of his pants, he strolled into the ballroom.
With so many eyes on her, Nian Xiaomu wanted to leave right from the start. However, when she heard him, she carried Xiao Liuliu and followed him in without demur.
In the luxurious ballroom.
There were bright lights wherever the people were; from the champagne tower at the entrance to the crystal chandelier in the middle of the ballroom.
Numerous waiters weaved in and out of the crowd, striving to provide the best service for the guests.
Yu Yuehan became the focus of everyone the moment he appeared.
All the chairpersons, partner companies of the Yu Corporation, and families who had friendly relations with the Yu Family... went up to him with their wine glasses to talk to him the moment they saw him.
Nian Xiaomu shifted to the side hurriedly with Xiao Liuliu in her arms.
Xiao Liuliu became excited at the sight of so many people.
Nian Xiaomu placed her down so that she could roam around by herself, but followed closely behind with every step she took.
"Xiao Liuliu, don't run so fast or else you might fall..."
Right after Nian Xiaomu said this reminder, Xiao Liuliu staggered and bumped right into the people in front of her.
"Where did this feral child come from? Absolutely no manners!"
