“I can’t stay long in Rao City, and I still have some things to say to Nian Nian.” Ye Lan evidently couldn’t bear to see Qiao Nian go. But seeing that Qiao Nian was really tired, she didn’t insist. She sighed and said, “It’s alright, I’ll have to find another day to chat with her.”
With that, her eyes lit up, as if she’d just thought of something. She took her cell phone out of her bag and excitedly said to Qiao Nian, “Nian Nian, what’s your cell phone number? Let’s exchange contacts. When you feel better, we can go out for tea.”
Ye Wangchuan recalled how she’d so eagerly tried to introduce other guys to Qiao Nian just now and felt a little cautious about her question now. He stopped Ye Lan. “She’s still a student and won’t have time to pick up your call. If you’re looking for her, you can just call me. I’ll relay the message.”
Ye Lan was rather unhappy to be stopped by him again. She pouted and eyed him suspiciously. “I’m asking Nian Nian out, why do I have to call you? Nian Nian isn’t your girlfriend anyway, aren’t you bothering too much? Why didn’t I realize how much of a busybody you were?”
She said with emphasis, “Men who’re too much of a busybody can’t find a partner.”
She furrowed her brows and looked skeptically at this handsome man. “You look good yourself and you’re capable. You have your own house and car as well, how have you not found a partner yet? None of the girls I matchmade you with have been successful. Could there really be something wrong with your character?”
Gu San gave her a thumbs-up in his heart.
The vein in Ye Wangchuan’s temple throbbed, and he could barely suppress it.
He glanced at the girl beside him and saw that she hadn’t really heard what was going on. His emotions were a little complicated now. Ye Wangchuan pursed his lips, aligned his deep gaze with Ye Lan’s line of sight, and said meaningfully, “Little Aunt, marriage is for a lifetime. I just want to be with someone I’m sure of. Everyone else is just a waste of time.”
Ye Lan was fuming mad. She scanned him from head to toe and then said, “Well, show me what a waste of time is at least.”
Ye Wangchuan was speechless.
Gu San almost burst out laughing.
Madam was too amazing!
After rebutting her nephew, Ye Lan wasn’t in the mood to talk about finding him a partner anymore. She turned around and focused her attention on Qiao Nian once again, saying warmly, “Nian Nian, let’s exchange contacts, it’ll be more convenient in the future. Thank you so much for helping Chen Chen out. If you won’t accept my token of appreciation, then at least leave me your number so you can look for me anytime when you need help. No matter what you need, I’ll do my best to fulfill your request.”
It was the promise of the Ye family’s Madam. This was worth more than gold!
Just how many people in Beijing dreamt of having such a promise?
But Ye Lan already made such a huge promise the first time she met this girl.
Qiao Nian didn’t know how big of a deal Ye Lan’s promise was. But seeing how sincere she looked, and on the account that she was Ye Qichen’s grandmother, she knitted her brows slightly while taking out her cell phone.
A string of numbers was recited in that soft but slightly hoarse voice. It was unique and melodious to hear.
Ye Lan immediately took her number down and gave Qiao Nian a call right away.
Qiao Nian’s cell phone rang in her hand.
Ye Lan hung up and said with a smile, “This is my personal cell phone, I bring it with me everywhere I go. Call me whenever.”
Ye Wangchuan’s eyes deepened as he squinted. He had been holding onto Qiao Nian’s hand this whole time. Now, he asked his aunt, “Are you done asking? If you are, I’ll take her away.”
Ye Lan held her back for a bit to exchange their WeChat contacts before letting her leave. “Go on, I’ll be with Chen Chen.”
