Chapter 131: Dogfight
Ye Mengxi’s eyes were completely glued on Aiden, and she stared directly at him until his figure was blocked out by the other guests. Only then did she recover her composure and prepare to move forward to talk to Aiden.
As a result, another male guest stepped on her shoe, and she was in so much pain that she released an earth-shattering scream.
Ye Mengxi’s scream attracted Aiden’s attention, and everyone cast dissatisfied glances at him as he looked toward her.
Ye Mengxi’s toes were almost broken from the trampling, and her face was pale.
“Are you alright? Does it hurt?”
The intense look in Aiden’s deep eyes produced an aphrodisiac-like effect on Ye Mengxi, and her pale face instantly flushed red. Under Aiden’s gaze, she could not even manage to speak clearly.
“No… I… I’m fine…”
After confirming that his own charm was not the issue, Aiden then ignored this vicious former school beauty that had always given his boss small shoes to wear during her schooling days. In front of her, he asked Jiang Shuwan, “Auntie, where is Qianqian?”
“She’s inside…” She was just about to answer that Qianqian was together with Gu Mingzhe when she suddenly came back to her senses.
Oh my goodness!
Gu Mingzhe was pursuing her family’s Qianqian, and now here was Aiden!
This was simply…
“Qianqian is inside taking care of the guests, Auntie will help you call her over right away. Kuijun, take Aiden to eat something first, he must be hungry since he arrived so late.”
“Sure.” Zhong Kuijun immediately nodded, cooperating with his wife’s requests.
“Qianqian is inside talking to her boyfriend, and she might not be able to come outside for a while. Shall I take you to eat something instead?”
A bad feeling instantly arose from Zhong Kuijun’s stomach. Ye Mengxi had just sold Zhong Qianqian out!
“Mengxi, what are you saying? Since when does Qianqian have a boyfriend? Don’t talk nonsense!”
“Huh? Isn’t Qianqian’s boyfriend the young master of the rich Gu family from Emperor District? I saw that she treasured Master Gu to the point that she wasn’t even willing to introduce him to our Mengxi.”
“You…!” Zhong Kuijun fumed , but it was not appropriate for him to vent it on the spot. His heart was filled with hatred, and he immediately decided to place the Ye family on his blacklist.
“Aiden, you said you wanted to look for Zhong Qianqian as soon as you arrived. Do you mind if Auntie asks you boldly about what your relationship is with her?”
When she saw no reply from Aiden, Lin Xin continued. “Aiden, Auntie is not measuring another’s corn by her own bushel. When Master Gu from Emperor District arrived a moment ago, Zhong Qianqian was so happy… Don’t be fooled.”
On the other end, Jiang Shuwan was just preparing to look for Qianqian when she saw Zhong Qianqian walking toward her with Gu Mingzhe by her side. Jiang Shuwan whispered briefly into Zhong Qianqian’s ears, and Zhong Qianqian hurried over immediately, just in time to hear Lin Xin’s slander.
Zhong Qianqian was furious, but she was too embarrassed to start a catfight in front of all the guests. Thus, she could only glare at Jiang Shuwan, and blame her mother for making such a cheap friend.
“Aiden, this is our family’s Lil Xi, you’ve spoken to her earlier. I’m not trying to boast, but our Xixi would never hook up with men outside. The upbringing of our Ye family has always been very strict, and our daughters are good girls that behave with etiquette. She’s also the campus belle in Zhong Qianqian’s school!”
Jiang Shuwan and Zhong Qianqian were extremely pissed off by Lin Xin, and they were just about to lash out at at her for her shamelessness when Aiden spoke.
“This lady, I think you’ve misunderstood. I’m not in a relationship with Qianqian.”
That one sentence made Zhong Qianqian and Jiang Shuwan’s face turn pale. Meanwhile, Ye Mengxi’s face went absurdly red.
