Chapter 1351: Ye Lan’s BirthdayTranslator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Ye Wangchuan walked up to Qiao Nian and placed one of the plates in front of her. As if he had heard their conversation, he said naturally, “I’ll send you there.”
Qiao Nian looked at the plate in front of her. The sandwich had just been made. It looked pretty good.
She picked up her sandwich and took a bite. It tasted just like it looked, and it was very good indeed. She went to sleep at three in the morning, and most of the frustration of not having had a good night’s sleep was gone. Her brows relaxed, and she wasn’t as cold as before. Her shoulders relaxed. “Yes,” she said lazily.
Seeing her yawn and the corners of her eyes turned slightly red, Ye Wangchuan knew that she had stayed up late last night.
Seeing that she was eating seriously with her head lowered, he put the glass of milk closer to her, then said gently, “Eat slowly and drink some milk to moisten your throat.”
Qiao Nian was speechless.
Her eyes narrowed for a moment as she stared at the glass of milk someone had pushed in front of her. She frowned and pursed her lips. Reluctantly, she picked it up and took a small sip.
Seeing that drinking milk was as difficult as going to the battlefield, Ye Wangchuan couldn’t help but laugh. He dragged out the chair and sat down at her side. Then, he said as if he had remembered something, “Auntie will treat you to lunch. Are you coming?”
“Today at noon?”
Qiao Nian took a sip of milk and realized that he hadn’t added sugar to it. The milk wasn’t as sweet as she had imagined, so she didn’t resist.
She listened to him idly as she ate her breakfast.
Ye Wangchuan was already used to her indifferent personality when she was half-asleep. He reached out and carefully tucked her hanging hair behind her ear before retracting his cold fingertips. He said unhurriedly, “Yes, it’s her birthday today. She doesn’t want to make a big deal out of it, so she booked a private room in the Imperial Mansion for a family meal. She asked if you’re free.”
A lot of people were going. Other than the direct descendants of the Ye family, some other people were also going. These people were more or less related to the Ye family.
Ye Lan had long treated Qiao Nian as part of the family. All the branches of the Ye family would be there. She definitely wanted Qiao Nian to come so that she could show off her niece-in-law.
However, Ye Wangchuan knew Qiao Nian’s personality. She didn’t like to join in the fun. The place would be crowded, so he was afraid that Qiao Nian wasn’t used to such occasions.
Hence, he didn’t agree immediately when Ye Lan told him to bring Qiao Nian along at noon.
He still had to ask her opinion and see if she was willing to go.
Qiao Nian stopped eating. She rested her chin on her hand, seemingly considering whether she should go.
Ye Wangchuan did not rush her. He completely respected her opinion and made things clear to her. “Although Aunt’s birthday is not grand this year, many people will be going. Many people that you might not have seen before will be attending. It’s not just Chen Chen and the old man. Some other people are also going.”
Qin Si immediately raised his hand and said, “Sister Qiao, I want to go too.”
He interrupted with a smile, “Go~ At least we know each other. At most, you can play with me and I’ll protect you. Master Wang will also be there. What are you afraid of?”
Qiao Nian smacked her lips. She wanted to say that she was afraid that they would be around.
However, on second thought, it was Ye Lan’s birthday today and she was invited. She asked after hesitating for a moment, “What time is it?”
“Twelve.” Afraid that she wasn’t paying attention before, Ye Wangchuan repeated, “At the Imperial Mansion.”
“Okay.” Qiao Nian nodded. She was quite straightforward. “I’ll be there at twelve sharp.”
