1551 Sister Qiao, We Won’t Go In
“Tsk.” Qiao Nian clicked her tongue impatiently as she looked at Jiang Xianrou in frustration. “Jiang Xianrou, aren’t you tired of pretending all day? I’m tired for you even if you aren’t.”
Jiang Xianrou’s face instantly collapsed. If not for the fact that she was pinching her fingernails tightly, she would have broken down on the spot and could not continue pretending.
Even if she barely managed to keep her composure, she was still angered by Qiao Nian’s words. At the very least, she no longer had the courage to continue disgusting others.
Jiang Yao walked over and called out the girl’s name. “Qiao Nian, why didn’t you tell me you were coming?”
He actually didn’t mean anything else, but his words sounded like ostracization.
They automatically excluded Qiao Nian from the Jiang family.
Qin Si frowned.
Ye Wangchuan’s eyes darkened and turned cold.
Qiao Nian’s expression was indifferent, as if she didn’t feel anything else. “I’m here to look for someone.”
Jiang Yao frowned. Then, he relaxed his brows and asked her as gently as possible, “Who are you looking for?”
“Qi Yan.” Qiao Nian was concise and didn’t hide anything from him.
The moment Qi Yan’s name was mentioned, Jiang Xianrou had the biggest reaction. She immediately looked over vigilantly. She opened her mouth and was about to refuse.
After a short silence, Jiang Yao said to the girl before she could speak, “I’ll bring you in.”
Qiao Nian raised her eyebrows and pressed down on her cap.
She wanted to say refuse since she would definitely settle scores with Qi Yan today. It didn’t matter if Jiang Yao brought her in or not. It wouldn’t affect her decision.
“I know which table she’s sitting at. I’ll take you there so you don’t have to find her yourself.”
Jiang Yao added, “There are quite a lot of people inside. You’ll only waste your time searching them one by one.”
Qiao Nian swallowed her words and glanced at him with her bright eyes. Her long eyelashes hid her emotions. She pursed her lips and didn’t say anything else.
Seeing that she agreed, Jiang Yao heaved a sigh of relief and his brows relaxed. Without further ado, he turned and led the way.
Qiao Nian stuffed a hand into her pocket and pushed her cap down, silently following behind him.
Seeing that she was about to go in, Qin Si glanced at Jiang Xianrou, whose face was turning pale. At this moment, he said lazily, “Sister Qiao, go in. We’ll wait for you outside.”
Jiang Xianrou’s mind was buzzing non-stop. She didn’t understand why Jiang Yao’s attitude towards Qiao Nian had suddenly changed so much.
Before she could figure it out, she heard that Qin Si and the others were not going in. Her expression changed.
“Young Master Qin, aren’t you going in?”
Qin Si had no intention of going in. He glanced at her casually and said, “We’re just here to accompany Sister Qiao, not to eat. Why would we go in?”
Zhang Yang looked down and immediately added, “Then, I won’t go in either.”
Gu San didn’t say anything. He just stood there motionless like a wooden stake, making it obvious that he was not going in.
Jiang Xianrou looked around and placed all her hopes on the remaining two people.
After the previous incident, Bo Jingxing had long known about Qiao Nian’s relationship with Ye Wangchuan. As a smart person, he had already made up his mind.
He avoided Jiang Xianrou’s pleading gaze and looked at the man standing beside him. He said gently, “Wangchuan, accompany Sister Qiao in. We and the others will wait for you here.”
… Bo Jingxing wasn’t going in, either!
Nodding, Ye Wangchuan walked past her and followed Qiao Nian in.
Jiang Xianrou’s blood surged as if she had been slapped, and her ears buzzed.
She had even promised the Wei family that Qin Si and the others would come.
In the end… they were indeed here, but not to attend her welcoming banquet.
They refused to enter.
What could be more humiliating, more clearly delineated?
Jiang Xianrou’s chest heaved up and down. Her nails dug deep into her flesh, and her vision darkened. At this moment, she wished that Qin Si and the others wouldn’t have come. It was better than them coming with Qiao Nian.
