“… Then, did you also ask sister-in-law to meet Mr. Jun in private?”
Everyone heard Xiao Ruilang’s flirtatious voice.
Ye Shengge held her breath. At the same time, she felt Ji Shiting tighten his grip on her hand.
Fortunately, Ji Shiting didn’t lose his composure. He looked at Xiao Ruilang and sneered, “Unfortunately, Xiao Cheng’s family business ended up in the hands of someone like you.”
Xiao Ruilang took a puff and chuckled, “But it’s true that sister-in-law met Mr. Jun in private.”
“Did you misunderstand something, Young Master Xiao?” Ye Shengge smiled. “You’re talking about Mr. Jun visiting Little Zheng on the set last time. Little Zheng is Mr. Jun’s grandson, and he happens to be acting with me on the same set. It’s just a visit, and everyone on the set was there, yet you made it sound so terrible. I feel sorry for Mr. Xiao.”
The couple cooperated well, which dispelled the doubts of the onlookers.
Xiao Ruilang’s eyes narrowed. He bit his cigarette and stared at Ye Shengge.
Although Ye Shengge was nervous, she still glared at him.
Xiao Ruilang’s eyes dimmed slightly.
Ji Shiting suddenly stepped forward and stopped Ye Shengge from making eye contact with Xiao Ruiliang.
“Young Master Xiao,” the man said sarcastically. “You should mind your own business.”
“Shiting,” Qiao Yanze suddenly said. “Take sister-in-law and Ms. Li away first. Leave this to me.”
He turned towards Ji Shiting as he said that.
Ji Shiting nodded and said to Ye Shengge, “Let’s go.”
Ye Shengge suddenly felt guilty seeing the man’s indifferent expression and unfathomable eyes. She wanted to explain herself, but she held it in because of the circumstances.
“Okay,” she mumbled, grabbed Li Yinian’s wrist and walked in front with her.
After a few steps, she heard muffled voices behind her. Ye Shengge even suspected that Qiao Yanze and Xiao Ruilang were fighting…
Li Yinian seemed to have the same suspicions. She frowned, but that was all.
“Why are you here, Ms. Li?” Ye Shengge couldn’t help asking.
“I work here,” she explained. “I need living expenses.”
Ye Shengge was shocked. “Why?”
“I’ve given up Xiao Cheng’s inheritance rights and cut off all ties with the Li family,” Li Yinian said as she smiled innocently. “I don’t have any source of income yet, so I can only work.”
Ye Shengge was at a loss for words.
She had given up her identity and wealth, but she didn’t look regretful at all.
“What about Fourth Young Master Qiao? He hasn’t forgotten you yet,” Ye Shengge couldn’t help asking.
“It’s all in the past. I don’t have the habit of turning back.” She smiled. “I thank you and Mr. Ji for today.”
Ye Shengge waved her hands and said, “You’re welcome. Do you have a place to go? Why don’t you come with me…”
“I’ll head back with Shengge first. Help yourself.” Ji Shiting interrupted Ye Shengge and nodded at Li Yinian.
