Zhong Qianqian was in the process of lifting Xue Miqi up when she suddenly heard Aiden’s voice. She was shocked, and her mind went blank, causing her hands to let go——
Xue Miqi’s breasts landed on the stone-made stereo once again.
“Aiden… What did you say?” Zhong Qianqian asked in disbelief.
Aiden unleashed his Oscar-worthy acting skills and looked at Zhong Qianqian with a disappointed expression, seemingly hesitant to speak.
However, Zhong Qianqian was anxious. She had just abandoned Gu Mingzhe, but a split second later, Aiden had turned around and said that he did not want her anymore. How could this happen?
“Aiden, what’s wrong?”
Looking at Aiden’s disappointed gaze, Zhong Qianqian was extremely flustered.
She had just given Gu Mingzhe a smack in the face earlier, and in the next moment, she had lost her opportunity with Aiden.
If this became a reality, then her reputation as the top socialite in Jiang District would soon become the top joke in Jiang District.
“Aiden, you were still pursuing Qianqian earlier, so why are you suddenly saying that Qianqian is not suitable for you?” Zhong Kuijun also grew anxious.
After all, if not for their good luck, it would be almost impossible to come across a rich husband like him.
“Uncle…” Aiden struggled for a while, and only spoke after he had fully taken in the anxious expressions on Zhong Qianqian and Zhong Kuijun’s faces. “You should ask Auntie about the details. Goodbye.”
As they saw Aiden leave without any hesitation, Zhong Kuijun and Zhong Qianqian’s faces instantly dropped.
Zhong Qianqian absolutely could not believe that the person who had ruined her relationship with Aiden this time had turned out to be her own mother!
Shortly after, Zhong Nuannuan came out, with Jiang Shuwan also hurriedly rushing out after her with a dazed look.
“Where’s Aiden? Where’s Aiden? Qianqian, have you seen Aiden?”
Jiang Shuwan’s words immediately made Zhong Qianqian burst into angry tears. “Mom, what exactly did you tell Aiden just now? Why was Aiden still fine when he went to use the washroom, only to return to tell me that I wasn’t suitable for him before leaving?”
“What?” Jiang Shuwan’s legs gave out. She quickly grabbed Zhong Qianqian’s hands to stabilize her body, and her eyes became vacant.
“Nuannuan, what exactly happened earlier? Aiden and Qianqian were still fine a while ago.”
Zhong Nuannuan glanced at the onlooking crowd, and asked, “Dad, do you really want me to tell you in front of so many guests?”
Only then did Zhong Kuijun notice that almost everyone was looking toward them at that moment.
Steadying his heart that was burning with anger, Zhong Kuijun could only greet the guests with a smile, and act like nothing was wrong.
Meanwhile, Xue Miqi had crashed into the chest and was still crying, but nobody dared to go forward and help her. After all, Chi Yang was not far away from her, and the cold aura that he emanated ensured that nobody dared to get to close to him.
“Uncle, I have to leave now with the commander-in-chief and chief of staff.”
“What? You’re all leaving so early?” Zhong Kuijun was startled.
He thought that for Chi Yang’s sake, the commander-in-chief and chief of staff could stay a little longer. After all, he had not had the time to get close to the commander-in-chief yet. This banquet was his hard-fought opportunity, but Gu Mingzhe and Aiden had ruined it.
Upon hearing of the leader’s departure, Zhong Kuijun felt a little unwell.
“I have a meeting with the commander-in-chief and chief of staff in the afternoon.”
“Oh, that… Sure, then all of you go slowly.”
After saying that, Zhong Kuijun quickly hurried to Leng Jinpeng and apologized profusely. “Commander-in-chief, chief of staff, I’m really embarrassed. I’ve been too busy today, and I haven’t had the time to greet you…”
“Commander Zhong, you don’t have to be like this. Hasn’t Nuannuan been greeting us on your behalf all this while?”
Qu Mingyi also chimed in. “Kuijun, you really have a good daughter. Commander-in-chief really likes this junior a lot!”
