Chapter 1253: Sister Nian Didn’t Answer His CallTranslator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Yuan Qing glared at them. Thinking that her family would have to curry favor with Jiang Zongnan’s family in the future, she rolled his eyes and planned to continue speaking ill of Qiao Nian.
Before she could finish, Jiang Li, who was sitting opposite her, threw his chopsticks on the table and interrupted her. “I’m done. I have a new song to record tonight, so I won’t accompany you.”
He pulled out a chair and stood up. Without even looking at his aunt, he said to the other relatives, “Uncles, please enjoy. I’ll leave first.”
“Jiang Li, are you full?”!!
“Yes, you didn’t eat much. Why don’t you eat some more? It’s just a meal. It won’t delay your work.”
The other relatives tried to persuade him.
Jiang Li smiled casually and then said firmly, “No, I’m really busy. I’ll leave first. Uncles, please enjoy.”
He turned and walked away.
He did not speak to Tang Wanru and Jiang Xianrou and left without looking back.
In the blink of an eye, the door of the private room closed.
Aunt’s expression was awkward. Her neck was stiff, and her face turned green, white, and a little hot.
She wanted to scold Jiang Li for not giving her face as an elder.
She was clearly the most senior person at this table. Jiang Li had greeted everyone before he left, but he had missed her twice in a row. Anyone with a discerning eye could tell that he was targeting her and making her, an elder, embarrassed.
However, Jiang Li was from the second branch of the family. She was still hoping that Jiang Zongnan would arrange a job for her grandson after he graduated.
She wanted to flare up a few times, but she forcefully endured it. Jiang Li had been gone for a long time before she squeezed out a strange expression. “Hehe, Jiang Li is quite close to his cousin. No wonder. I only said a few words and didn’t mean to scold her. He didn’t even eat and left just like that.”
What she meant was self-evident.
Didn’t she mean that Jiang Li was in cahoots with Qiao Nian!
Tang Wanru was so angry that she lost her grip on her chopsticks. She had no appetite to eat, to begin with, and now, she had lost her appetite because of Yuan Qing’s words. Her face was ashen as she silently wiped her mouth and said coldly, “I’m full.”
Jiang Yao did not go far after he came out. He left the private room and walked through the corridor. He found a quiet corner and frowned slightly. After some thought, he took out his phone and called Qiao Nian.
The first call went unanswered.
He didn’t give up and called her a second time.
The second call kept ringing, but no one answered.
Jiang Yao’s handsome face was a little embarrassed, but when he thought of Jiang Li’s words, the dissatisfaction that had just gathered in his chest instantly dissipated.
He held back and called a third time.
This time, it rang only once before a female voice was heard.
“Hello, Qiao…” Jiang Yao said impatiently. He had yet to finish calling her name when the rest of his words became stuck in his throat.
“I’m sorry, the number you’ve dialed is switched off.” The cold, mechanical female voice came from the other end of the phone as if a slap had been delivered to his face.
Jiang Yao had been the most outstanding person in the Jiang family since he was young.
After becoming an adult, he successfully entered Tian Chen Company to work in the world’s most cutting-edge technology research and development. This job sounded like he was working for someone, but the place he entered was Tian Chen!
