Ning Meng Yao tilted her head as she pondered for a moment. It didn’t look like she would be getting herself into a fix or come off for the worse by agreeing. And it wasn’t like he was saying he wanted to get married right away. In that case, it should be alright.
Satisfied with her response, Qiao Tian Chang dropped the question and changed the topic of conversation to how he had been living all this while as well as the plan he had together with Ning Meng Yao in the future.
For example, his decision to not go back and instead settle down permanently at White Mountain Village. Also, in the next year, he intended to build a house next to her home so that it would be possible to merge the two houses together in the future.
It was until late at night when the two finally left the tea house after the people on the floor below gradually dispersed.
Qiao Tian Chang did not follow Ning Meng Yao back but instead went to an inn to rest right after telling her that he’d travel back with her group the following morning.
By the time Ning Meng Yao returned, Yang Le Le was already back. Yang Le Le was not worried about Ning Meng Yao arriving back so late in the night and only grinned at her.
“You’re back late.” Looking at Ning Meng Yao, she smiled widely. It was time to go beyond payback.
“You’re sure one to talk, you guys actually deserted me.” Ning Meng Yao replied as she feigned an angry look and narrowed her eyes at Yang Le Le.
Yang Le Le grinned as she awkwardly rubbed her nose, “Don’t be angry, I was wrong.”
Ning Meng Yao glanced at Yang Le Le, “I don’t have time to be upset with you, I’m tired, so I’m going to go wash up and then go to sleep.”
“I’ll go as well.” Yang Le Le followed along and returned to her own room.
As expected, Qiao Tian Chang came over first thing in the morning. Qing Xuan opened the door for Qiao Tian Chang and kept a watchful eye on him.
Ning Meng Yao was a bit embarrassed when she saw that he had come over. “Big Brother Qiao, you came.”
“En, let’s return back together in a bit.”
Yang Le Le first looked at Ning Meng Yao, and then at Qiao Tian Yang. With that same look of understanding in both their eyes, Yang Le Le could tell that something had definitely happened between the two of them.
Looking at Ning Meng Tao, her eyes seemed to say: “You better ‘fess up.’”
Ning Meng Yao lowered her head and pretended not to see Yang Le Le’s inquisitive gaze. Instead, she started talking with Qiao Tian Chang about the workshop.
After being ignored and left out for a while, Yang Le Le finally had had enough and said accusingly to the two people in front of her, “Hey, you two, don’t forget I’m right here, alive and well.”
Ning Meng Yao and Qiao Tian Chang smiled at each other. Ning Meng Yao was the first to break the gaze and replied to Yang Le Le, “Alright, eat up. We’ll head back once we’ve finished eating.”
“Got it.” Yang Le Le dropped the subject as she lowered her head and obediently started eating.
After the meal, everyone packed up and got ready to leave. As they were leaving, they encountered Yang Cui.
Yang Cui’s face was pale, it was obvious that she hadn’t been doing very well these days.
When Yang Cui noticed them, her line of vision immediately fell on Qiao Tian Chang and the words of warning that her brother and sister-in-law told her came to mind.
It wasn’t that Yang Cui didn’t understand the words they told her, it’s just that she wasn’t willing to take them to heart.
She had been acquainted with Qiao Tian Chang for a while, and the time she knew him was not shorter than Ning Meng Yao. So why was it that Qiao Tian Chang would not take notice of her and instead only paid attention to that sl*t.
No matter the why and how, she couldn’t bear it.
It’s just that she couldn’t do anything about it right now. If she were to stir up trouble in the town, not only would her older brother and his wife not let her get away with it, but her second brother wouldn’t spare her either.
She didn’t want her family to be disgusted with her at this time, but as she watched those two walking together side by side, how could it not pain her to look at?
With a blurred vision, Yang Cui watched Qiao Tian Chang leave together with Ning Meng Yao. Finally, Yang Cui turned around and left too.
Yang Cui had to endure for now, but one day, she would definitely make Ning Meng Yao kneel before her and beg for mercy.
When Yang Cui returned to her older brother’s shop, her countenance was unpleasant. Yang Shu looked at his sister and frowned slightly, “What happened? Didn’t you say you were going out for a bit?”
Yang Shu thought to himself: Although you may look like nothing’s wrong on the surface, I can tell something’s weighing in your heart. You say you’re fine, yet what were you doing crying and wailing all morning? Hey, we still had a business to run. With this going on, what will happen when all the customers get scared away?
“Older brother, I’m going to go take a rest first.” Without looking at her brother’s expression, she knew what he was thinking so she lowered her head and headed towards the back.
After Yang Cui left, Madame Sun came out from the back frowning and looking displeased as she said, “It’s not good for sister-in-law to be like this.”
