I Help The Richest Man Spend Money To Prevent Disasters - Chapter 257
Edited By Adrian
After Ye Zhi finished speaking, she turned her head aside and did not speak again.
Nie Jiqing, who was still watching Ye Zhi, asked subconsciously, “Where’s Miss Ye’s family?”
Ye Zhi turned to look at Nie Jiqing.
Nie Jiqing suddenly realized she had asked a somewhat abrupt question.
She laughed nervously, “You carry yourself very well, Miss Ye. I’m just curious as to what kind of family could raise such a good person like you.”
Ye Zhi was silent.
After a long while, Ye Zhi breathed, “My family is gone.”
The adoptive parents of her original body had died, and her biological mother was right next to her, but she did not recognize herself and even took someone else as her daughter.
Nie Jiqing’s heart sank. She opened her mouth to speak, but the words were caught in her throat, making her feel extremely uncomfortable.
Nie Jiqing took a deep breath, “Sorry.”
After that, neither of them spoke again.
Somehow, the sorrow that lingered in Nie Jiqing’s heart struck again, and her heartfelt extraordinarily heavy.
The car stopped and they got out of the car.
Ye Zhi looked up at the Sheng Mansion in front of her with complicated emotions. It was the first time she came to Sheng Mansion but as an outsider.
(T/L: Last time she visited Sheng Man’s personal house.)
Nie Jiqing noticed that Ye Zhi was lost in her thoughts for a while. She probed with concern, “Miss Ye, what’s wrong?”
Ye Zhi shook her head.
Seeing Nie Jiqing walking in with Ye Zhi, Maid Zhao came forward to greet them, “Madam.”
Nie Jiqing instructed directly, “Send the Young Lady down.”
After a while, Sheng Man came downstairs, and hatred surfaced in her eyes when she saw Ye Zhi. As her mind was racing with the thoughts she had to apologize to Ye Zhi today, she barely slept the night.
She never knew that she hated Ye Zhi so much.
Nie Jiqing, who doted on her, had uncharacteristically insisted that she apologize. Of course, she was unwilling to do so, but she was not the Sheng family’s biological daughter of the Sheng family so she had to compromise to win Nie Jiqing’s favour.
Nie Jiqing motioned to Ye Zhi to follow her, and they stopped in front of Sheng Man.
Nie Jiqing looked at Sheng Man and spoke coldly. Her crisp voice was clearly filled with a faint oppressive aura.
“Sheng Man, apologize to Miss Ye.”
The area fell silent at Nie Jiqing’s words.
Nie Jiqing waited for Sheng Man’s apology, Ye Zhi remained indifferent, while Sheng Man bit her lip firmly, anger surging in her heart.
Nie Jiqing had already brought Ye Zhi home, could she not even wait for a moment?
Sheng Man had to apologize to Ye Zhi. She forced herself to accept this reality last night, but she refused to open her mouth when Ye Zhi was now standing before her.
Sheng Man looked at Nie Jiqing, putting out her last, desperate efforts; her tone was very aggrieved when she pleaded, “Mom, I know I was wrong, but Ye Zhi is just an outsider…”
She faintly hoped that Nie Jiqing could save her some embarrassment in front of Ye Zhi.
Ye Zhi had expected this from Sheng Man.
She looked at Nie Jiqing calmly and addressed her quietly, “Mrs. Sheng, since your daughter didn’t mean to apologize, then I will leave…”
Ye Zhi turned around, pretending to leave.
Nie Jiqing stopped her immediately, “Miss Ye, please stay.”
With a smile hidden in Ye Zhi’s eyes, she slowly turned around.
Nie Jiqing looked at Sheng Man, completely indifferent to Sheng Man’s flattering and submission, and said coldly, “What did you promise me yesterday?”
