Xia Mengyan hurriedly went forward to comfort her. “Grandma, you have to take care of your health! We were invited to the banquet today. President Gu won’t let the Yin family make things difficult for us. Moreover, that’s all in the past. Why is Old Madam Yin still clinging to it? Isn’t she too petty?”
Xia Cheng’s expression changed slightly. Lianxin must still be unable to let go of her past grudges. They had already been divorced for decades, but she was still alone and had not remarried. Perhaps it was because of their past relationship. Now, for the sake of his granddaughter’s happiness and the Xia family’s future, he could only stand opposite Lianxin.
Speaking of which, Qiao Xi, that child, could not be considered a member of the Yin family at all. She did not grow up in the Yin family either. He did not understand why Lianxin doted on Qiao Xi so much. What was so good about her? Even the Qiao family was unwilling to acknowledge her identity. She was just a wild girl that no one wanted. How was she worthy of the noble Gu Zheng?
Gu Zheng was the president of Gu Corporation. His wife should be as sensible and generous as Mengyan, not like Qiao Xi, who would only embarrass him. It would not be long before Gu Zheng got tired of her.
Xia Mengyan reminded them gently, “Grandpa, Grandma, the banquet is about to start. Let’s all go in. I also want to hear what President Gu has to say. No matter what, Qingfeng Entertainment belongs to the Xia family, and the marriage contract is also mine. Xi Xi can’t deny it at all.”
The few of them nodded and entered the banquet hall together.
At this moment, a familiar voice came from behind. Xia Mengyan turned around and saw a tall man walking toward her. The man said warmly, “I’m Sun Chuan! We were classmates!”
Sun Chuan? Xia Mengyan pondered for a few seconds before realizing that Sun Chuan had liked her since she was in university. She did not expect to meet an old friend on such an occasion.
Xia Mengyan suddenly thought of a good idea. Her eyes turned red as she lowered her head aggrievedly. “I’m sorry. I’ve been in a daze and didn’t manage to recognize you. Please don’t mind me.”
Seeing her pitiful look, Sun Chuan hurriedly asked, “What happened?”
Xia Mengyan bit her lip and said awkwardly, “Actually, it’s not a big deal. I just had a conflict with my cousin. She’s already ignoring me now. Our matter has spread online. I really don’t know how to explain it to her.”
Sun Chuan knew that she was unwilling to say it, so he hurriedly took out his phone to look at the recent news. He finally understood why Xia Mengyan was so sad and in a daze.
He shouted indignantly, “When I pursued you in university, you said that you were already engaged, but I didn’t expect your fiance to be President Gu! How could Mrs. Gu snatch your engagement? She’s too much!”
Xia Mengyan wiped her tears and smiled bitterly. “It’s all in the past. It can only mean that President Gu and I are not fated. You can’t blame my cousin for this. Don’t be angry.”
Sun Chuan could not accept that the woman he liked was being bullied. He immediately patted his chest and promised, “Mengyan, don’t be sad. I’ll help you teach Mrs. Gu a lesson and make her pay the price!
“You’ve been engaged to President Gu for so many years. What right does she have to interfere?”
Xia Mengyan pretended to be worried. She quickly advised Sun Chuan not to be rash, but Sun Chuan did not listen at all. He swore to seek justice for her.
She pretended to pull Sun Chuan, but she stood where she was as she watched him leave angrily. Then, the corners of her mouth curled into a proud smile.
Hah! Stupid man.
In the banquet hall.
Gu Zheng held Qiao Xi’s hand and entered the venue. Suddenly, a waiter who was walking in a hurry arrived with a few glasses of wine in his hand. He walked to Qiao Xi’s side and slipped. The wine in the glass instantly spilled out. Fortunately, Gu Zheng reacted quickly and protected her in his arms, but Gu Zheng’s suit was drenched in wine.
Seeing that he had splashed Gu Zheng, the waiter immediately apologized in fear. “President Gu, I’m sorry. I… I didn’t do it on purpose.”
Gu Zheng ignored her and looked at Qiao Xi who was in his arms. “Were you scared?”
Qiao Xi shook her head, and her gloomy gaze landed on the waiter. She was wearing a long white dress today. If the glass of wine from earlier had splashed on her, she would definitely be in an extremely sorry state and would definitely be mocked.
Song Shijing quickly brought over a clean suit jacket. Gu Zheng took it but was not in a rush to change. Instead, he pulled Qiao Xi into his arms and comforted her carefully. She leaned into Gu Zheng’s arms, her body enveloped by his warm breath.
