Nian Xiaomu was struck dumb when she heard him mention her name!
Young Master, she is just a nurse. Do not think too highly of her.
I can't do it!
"Yuehan, are you kidding me? Ah, Nian Xiaomu dares to compare herself with Meimei with that status of hers. I am afraid that she hasn't even had the chance to touch a piano in her life, eh?" Cheng Xiulu seemed to have heard some sort of joke and snickered out loud.
Her overly exaggerated face was filled with sarcasm.
Yu Yuehan was about to say something when Nian Xiaomu clutched his arm hurriedly.
She did not care much about statuses at this point in time.
She twisted her head and looked at him with a smile that was uglier than a frown. At a volume where only the two of them could hear, she gritted her teeth and said, "Young Master, don't act recklessly. Someone will die!"
The one who would be killed was neither Cheng Xiulu nor Cheng Caimei, but Nian Xiaomu!
If she embarrassed him, he would strangle her to death!
When the thought of this ending flashed past Nian Xiaomu's mind, she trembled from head to foot and clutched his arm with even greater force.
Just as she was thinking hard about how to escape this calamity, she saw Yu Yuehan's grave and stern face move closer to her ear all of a sudden. He opened his mouth slowly and said, "Weren't you the one who said that I was useless and unable to deal with someone like Cheng Caimei? I will give you the opportunity to do so now. If you are so good at it, you do it."
If she could emerge as the winner, apart from Cheng Caimei, he would also present Cheng Xiulu to her in turn.
Not only could Nian Xiaomu vent anger on behalf of Xiao Liuliu, she could also vent her own anger.
Nian Xiaomu: "...!"
She finally understood now; this man was not only cold and elegant, but he was also someone two-faced who held grudges!
She had only spoken sarcastically to him, yet he wanted to send her to the guillotine!
Nian Xiaomu stared at him with bulging eyes. Before she had a chance to speak, she saw the man beside her staring at Cheng Xiulu with raised eyebrows.
"So, have you agreed to it?"
"..." Cheng Xiulu was stunned by the question, and a streak of hesitation flashed across her face.
She believed from the bottom of her heart that a nurse like Nian Xiaomu could not possibly play any fine music and that the reason Yu Yuehan was full of bravado was because he could chase Meimei out like this as a matter of course.
However, she became very uncertain when she saw his look of confidence.
Just in case, she couldn't possibly take the chance of accompanying Cheng Caimei and being chased out of the Yu Family as well.
"Auntie, I agree to the competition." Cheng Caimei had ended her performance and walked up behind Cheng Xiulu in front of everyone's praise.
She had agreed on behalf of Cheng Xiulu without hesitation when she overheard their conversation.
"Auntie, have you forgotten that I won an international award for my piano skills? Nian Xiaomu is merely a nurse. What does she have that can compete with me?"
"Besides, she has embarrassed you multiple times. Doesn't Auntie want to show her what you are made of?" Cheng Caimei lowered her voice and whispered into Cheng Xiulu's ears.
When she heard this, Cheng Xiulu dispelled her last bit of apprehension.
Anyone with eyes could recognize her niece's splendid performance.
She did not believe that a nurse would play better than a professional pianist.
When they emerged as the winners later, not only could Meimei stay and avert being chased out, she could also shame Nian Xiaomu mercilessly!
Plus, she would let Nian Xiaomu know the difference between a pheasant and a phoenix!
"Okay, Auntie will listen to you. We shall compete with them!" Cheng Xiulu raised her head, smiled complacently, and looked at Nian Xiaomu, who was at the other side of the table.
It was as if she was very confident in her success.
Yu Yuehan raised up his wine cup and swirled the red wine. The dark red color of the alcohol reflected treacherous rays under the light.
He sipped a mouthful calmly. Shifting his gaze away from Cheng Xiulu, he turned to look at Nian Xiaomu, who was stiff all over.
"If you win, your salary will be doubled."
