As Zhuang Nai Nai is busy assessing them, Bai Yue suddenly speaks, “Auntie Shi’s birthday will be in a couple of days from now. I just want to ask you what Auntie like.”
Zhuang Nai Nai: ………………….!!
She must be hallucinating. What did Bai Yue just say? That so-called Auntie Shi should be Si Jing Yu’s mother-in-law. Not only is the mistress ruining someone else’s marriage, she is also asking the legal wife what gift she should give to the mother-in-law?
Everything is just weird.
The one asking is asking in an upright manner, while the one who is getting asked is….
The look in Si Jing Yu’s eyes change a little. She fists her hands that are placed under the table, though the expression in her face does not change. Her tone is icy and distant when she speaks, “I think you better direct that question to Shi Jin Yan.”
Bai Yue smiles, “Men can be inconsiderate when it comes to things like that. Speaking of Jin Yan, I would like to thank you for taking care of him for the past two years.”
When she sees the look that flashes on Si Jing Yu’s face, Bai Yue’s heart feels appeased in a twisted way, “I heard you and Auntie have a really good relationship with each other. I’m sure you know what she likes. You must know that Auntie has a little misunderstanding towards me. You really must help me figure out what she wants this time.”
When Si Jing Yu hears that, she turns even more rigid.
As for Zhuang Nai Nai, she is downright furious right now.
This Bai Yue is simply shameless!
Although she does not know what happened between them, Shi Jin Yan and Si Jing Yu are married. No matter what, Bai Yue is butting into their relationship and that makes her the third party.
Zhuang Nai Nai gets up angrily.
Before she gets to say anything, Bai Yue speaks first, “What? Are you going to try to protect your friend? Do you know what kind of a person this friend of yours is? Do you want to know what happened between us?” Bai Yue smirks at her. Then, the look on Bai Yue’s face promptly changes, “I used to consider her my own sister. Do you know what she did to me in return?” She gets up and looks at Si Jing Yu menacingly, “Would you like to tell her what you did to me, Si Jing Yu? Did you ever feel sorry for what you did?”
Just as Zhuang Nai Nai is about to sneer at her, Si Jing Yu grabs her arm and pulls her back. Si Jing Yu calmly turns to Bai Yue, “Shiny things.”
Bai Yue and Zhuang Nai Nai stares at her, stunned.
Si Jing Yu speaks on, “Mother, she….. She likes shiny things.”
A flash of disdain can be seen in Bai Yue’s eyes.
As expected of a nouveau riche who used to live in the countryside. It is natural for them to like shiny things like gold and silver.
But that look only lasts for a nanosecond. Bai Yue gathers her handbag and looks at Si Jing Yu, “Thank you.”
Then, she walks out of the meeting room.
Zhuang Nai Nai suppresses her anger as she watches Bai Yue leave. She looks at Si Jing Yu, wanting to say something, but ends up changing her mind at last minute.
She knows that Si Jing Yu has her own reason for doing things.
Those three people have their own story. Since she does not know what it is, she must not speak blindly.
Si Jing Yu pats Zhuang Nai Nai in the shoulder, “Alright. Let’s go.”
