When Nian Xiaomu got out of the car, Matriarch Yu, who had been waiting in the living room, ran out to greet them.
“Come here, Xiao Mumu. Come and see the dates that Grandma picked for you!”
“…” At the thought of the three dates that Yu Yuehan had mentioned, Nian Xiaomu’s lips quivered nervously.
Grandma’s idea of democracy was a mere three day range.
This meant that within 10 days, she would become formally engaged to Yu Yuehan.
It was so soon that she could barely react.
Although she wanted to ask if they could slow down with the preparations, Nian Xiaomu found herself choking back her words when she saw how happy Matriarch Yu looked, so she tugged at Yu Yuehan’s shirt to ask for his help.
Yu Yuehan walked forward, took a glance at Matriarch Yu’s almanac, and said, “We will follow Grandma’s instructions.”
Nian Xiaomu: “…!!”
“Since Grandma gave you a chance to pick a date, but neither of you has a preference, then I will decide on next week. This date is good for getting engaged. The key point is that it’s the earliest date!” Matriarch Yu chortled gleefully and turned around to start giving instructions to the butler.
“We need to plan the ceremony now and inform all the elders in the Yu Family… Yes, everyone must be informed. Of course my grandson’s engagement ceremony will be as grand as possible. Xiao Mumu will become the lady of the Yu household in the future…”
It had been a long while since the Yu Family villa organized a joyous occasion.
Once the engagement date was fixed, the entire villa became bustling with noise and excitement.
In contrast, Nian Xiaomu appeared to idle leisurely in Yu Yuehan’s study, keeping him company as he worked.
She silently sat at her laptop, analyzing the movements of the stock charts.
As she recorded down the statistics, she silently calculated how much investment she would have to make every year in order to save enough money to make Yu Yuehan her kept man.
“What are you muttering about?” Yu Yuehan put away his documents and turned toward her.
Deep in thought, Nian Xiaomu heard his voice and instinctively answered, “I’m figuring out how I can let you live off me as soon as possible…”
As soon as her words left her mouth, Nian Xiaomu snapped back to her senses and turned back to face Yu Yuehan. By then, he was already in a daze and staring at her with his dark and soulful eyes that were filled with a strange light.
It was as if he could not believe his own ears.
Frightened out of her wits, Nian Xiaomu quickly grabbed her laptop and ducked to the back as she exclaimed, “Well, everyone should set goals for themselves, and I have one too… Just casually thinking… Only casually thinking…”
Nian Xiaomu turned around and got ready to escape from the study.
Just as she reached the door, a knock sounded. After that, the assistant walked in quickly. A look of alarm filled his face when he saw Nian Xiaomu. Then, he stepped past her and walked straight to Yu Yuehan.
“Master Han, bad news!”
The assistant placed his cell phone in front of Yu Yuehan as he swiped the screen.
[The fiancée of the Yu Corporation is the jinx who caused her parents’ death!]
The latest news headline flashed glaringly at his eyes!
In detail, the report described Nian Xiaomu’s family background as well as the cause of her parents’ deaths.
There was even a grotesque photograph of the aftermath of the fire attached at the end!
From the time the article was published, the comments on the article increased at an exponential rate.
In the short span of an hour, there were already thousands of comments…
“What’s wrong? Is it something to do with me?” Nian Xiaomu subconsciously stepped forward when she noticed that the expression on the assistant’s face looked strange.
She looked over and caught the headline of the news article that was displayed on the assistant’s phone.
Bam! As her hand lost its grip on the laptop, her computer fell to the floor with a loud thud.
