Chapter 20: What Are Your Thoughts About Qi Yu and Bo Yunli?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When Su Ye noticed that Rong Ruo did not seem to have heard her well, she decided to explain it patiently. “Everyone has to continue marching down a path to a brighter future. Who exactly would remember the matter of being deceived when young because of a lapse in judgment?”
Her statement might have sounded casual, but if anyone pondered over it, they would notice a lot of underlying meanings in it. Su Ye was mocking Qi Yu for being far beneath Bo Yunli and telling them that Qi Yu had deceived her.
Su Ye looked down on the schemes between rich women, but she was the real master when it came to hiding sharp blades in one’s words.
Her grandniece was humiliated in front of others in the past, so now, Su Ye was going to rebuild her dignity.
Xu Huanying sided with her, which was unusual. When she looked at Rong Ruo, she said earnestly, “Little Ruo, Ye Ye is already engaged to Yunli. Don’t mention Qi Yu in the future. If others heard your words, they would misunderstand. Ye Ye doesn’t want to be involved with him in any manner.”
Su Ye’s words put Rong Ruo on the spot, and Xu Huanying made things even harder for her, causing Rong Ruo and Hu Xiuli to want to dig a hole and crawl into it.
She ended up mocking herself with those words, even though they were originally intended to mock Su Ye. Qi Yu was Rong Ruo’s legitimate boyfriend, but when they put it in such a manner, it was as if Rong Ruo had picked up something Su Ye did not care for.
Su Ye did not want to have anything to do with Qi Yu, while Rong Ruo treated him like treasure.
Rong Ruo grabbed the hem of her dress and clenched her fists. ‘You’re already engaged? Did you actually think that we don’t know that Bo Yunli came over the day before yesterday to cancel the engagement? I’m not putting it on the table right now just because the time isn’t right.’
After taking a few breaths, she spoke again in her harmless, warm tone. “Aunt Xu, Ye Ye, I’m sorry. It’s my fault. I was too careless with my words. How could my boyfriend compare to Big Brother Yunli? I shouldn’t have mentioned him.”
‘She really knows how to make concessions in order to advance.’
When Hu Xiuli saw that the former lady’s expression was becoming worse, she quickly added, “Seriously, Little Ruo, how did I teach you at home? Don’t run your mouth off.”
Su Ye quietly watched them act.
After Hu Xiuli added more fuel to the fire, Liu Guifang could no longer hold it in. “Xiuli, enough. Little Ruo is already very well-mannered. What’s wrong with Qi Yu? He is much better than Yunli. He has just started learning how to invest, but he has already earned more than two million RMB. He definitely has a bright future ahead of him.”
She then turned her sharp glare to Xu Huanying. “Huanying, listen to yourself. What was that just now? It’s no wonder why Su Ye ended up like this. Don’t go thinking that everyone wants to steal your son-in-law. The important thing is to help Su Ye marry him soon.”
With the former lady putting pressure on her, no matter how angry Xu Huanying was, she could only look at Hu Xiuli askance.
The atmosphere became frozen stiff. Despite that, the mother and daughter from the Rong family sat around for a little while longer before leaving.
Liu Guifang was so angry that she went straight upstairs. They had been having a nice gathering, but Su Ye made it end early. The Rong family also had to leave unhappily.
While Hu Xiuli was walking out, she grumbled, “Little Ruo, are you certain of what you heard that day at the Su family’s entrance? Su Ye looks really confident. It doesn’t feel like the engagement is cancelled.”
“I heard it clearly,” Rong Ruo whispered. “Aunt Xu wants to use Master Bo as a cover to stall for time, but I won’t let them have their way.”
“What do you want to do?”
“It’ll be Master Bo’s 70th birthday in a few days, right?”
Hu Xiuli came to an understanding. “You can’t say this yourself…”
Rong Ruo already had plans. “Don’t worry, Mom. Why do you think I’m bringing Qi Yu along? Besides, Big Brother Yunli has held Su Ye in contempt for a long time, but now, he suddenly came to cancel the engagement. Su Ye must have done something indecent. If that’s really the case, then she’s done for. Mom, go and ask around for me…”
“Alright, I will.” When Hu Xiuli saw that her daughter cared so much about Yunli’s engagement, she looked at her seriously and changed the topic.. “There’s something I’ve been meaning to ask you. What do you think about Qi Yu and Bo Yunli?”
