Her mother-in-law wanted to meet her so what should she do?
She knew that Ji Shiting didn’t have a good relationship with Xu Shaoqing, but she was Ji Shiting’s mother after all. Besides, Ji Shiting had probably misunderstood her all these years.
Ye Shengge couldn’t help feeling a bit soft-hearted. Thus, even though she knew that Xu Shaoqing was probably doing this for Ling Yutong and Little Zheng, she still nodded and agreed.
Xu Shaoqing was very happy, and he immediately gave her the address. “I’ll wait for you at the mall opposite T.S. Building. Come to the tearoom on the second floor directly after you arrive.”
“Okay, see you later.” Ye Shengge smiled and hung up the phone.
She put on some makeup, changed her clothes and left.
The driver dropped her off at her destination, and Ye Shengge soon found the teahouse Xu Shaoqing had mentioned.
She opened the door and saw Xu Shaoqing kneeling there. She was brewing tea with her hair tied up. She looked up and smiled at Ye Shengge. “You’re here? Sit down.”
Ye Shengge sat down across from her and said, “Auntie, are you asking about Ms. Ling and Little Zheng?”
Xu Shaoqing put down the teapot and smiled, “No, I think I know more about them than you do.”
Ye Shengge raised her eyebrows.
“Shiting is here too.” Xu Shaoqing smiled. “He’s in the room next door with Ling Yutong.”
Ye Shengge’s heart sank.
“Yutong is different to Shiting after all.” Xu Shaoqing smiled bitterly. “When Shiting’s father died, I couldn’t manage him and it was Yutong who walked him out of that dark time. That’s the reason why Shiting has been cold to everyone all these years except for Ling Yutong. This was also why they got together and became engaged.”
“Oh, but they broke up later.” Ye Shengge blinked and looked at her calmly.
“That’s because Shiting misunderstood her.” Xu Shaoqing put a cup of tea in front of her. “It was a huge misunderstanding, so Shiting never mentioned Yutong’s name again.”
Ye Shengge clenched her fists and said, “Why are you telling me this?”
“The Ji family looks great, but it’s facing a lot of danger.” Xu Shaoqing changed the topic. “All the responsibility is on Ji Shiting alone. You’re his wife, so you know how hard it is for him. Besides, Yang City is facing a reshuffle. Xiao Ruilang is ambitious, and I think you know how he treats Shiting.”
Ye Shengge gazed at her silently.
“Mr. Jun is a neutral power, and he’s very important.” Xu Shaoqing finally got to the point. “Ling Yutong is Mr. Jun’s daughter in name, and she has a child with Shiting.”
Ye Shengge decided to stop feeling sorry for Xu Shaoqing. She suddenly felt lucky that Ji Shiting didn’t have a good relationship with his birth mother, otherwise she would’ve been in trouble.
“Oh, so you want me to leave Shiting and fulfill Ling Yutong’s wish?” Ye Shengge smiled. “Sorry, but that doesn’t matter to me. Shiting has the final say in our relationship.”
Ye Shengge said all these casually. It was the truth after all. She had given up the chance to ask for a divorce when they first got married.
Xu Shaoqing gazed at her in silence for a bit before saying, “I just said that Shiting and Yutong separated because of a misunderstanding. Yutong is explaining the misunderstanding to him now. There won’t be any obstacles between them once this misunderstanding is cleared up.”
She then added with a smile. “Other than you.”
