I Help The Richest Man Spend Money To Prevent Disasters - Chapter 258
Edited By Adrian
Nie Jiqing looked at Sheng Man, completely indifferent to Sheng Man’s flattering and submission, and said coldly, “What did you promise me yesterday?”
Sheng Man was stunned.
Nie Jiqing continued, “The Sheng family values honesty above all. You promised me, but now you’re going back on your words. I never taught you to be someone who breaks your promises.”
She did not want to be lenient towards Sheng Man’s behaviour to consume her patience again and again. Sheng Man’s face sunk deeper as she listened to the reprimands.
Nie Jiqing did not stop, “Sheng Man, you disappoint me too much. I don’t want to repeat myself.”
She finished with a blood-chilling tone, “Sheng Man, apologize to Miss Ye immediately!”
Sheng Man was bombarded with accusations and reprimands.
She was left speechless. She heard Nie Jiqing say the exact same thing yesterday – she had disappointed her too much.
But she heard even more clearly when Nie Jiqing mentioned the “Sheng family”. These two words resounded like thunder in her head.
Regardless of what Nie Jiqing meant, Sheng Man believed that Nie Jiqing was reminding her that she was just the adopted daughter of the Sheng family and depended on them.
She was afraid that if she did not apologize, she would really disappoint Nie Jiqing.
Sheng Man finally surrendered. She knew that Nie Jiqing was really not going to show her any affection in front of Ye Zhi.
Sheng Man finally looked at Ye Zhi. Her usual proud face was now deathly pale.
She clenched her fists tightly, digging her nails deep into her palm as if her humiliation would be slightly lighter by doing so.
Sheng Man spat out her apology as if every word had exhausted all of her energy.
“Ye Zhi, I deliberately tricked you into thinking you were the spokesperson. I was wrong about this. Now, I solemnly apologize to you.”
After saying this, Sheng Man glanced at Nie Jiqing, whose expression was still very cold, obviously still waiting for Sheng Man’s next sentence.
She not only had to apologize to Ye Zhi but also had to ask for her forgiveness.
Laughing bitterly, she asked softly, “Can you forgive me?”
She, who has always been invincible, finally lowered her head to Ye Zhi.
Even though this would only be between the three of them, she was unwilling to and she felt completely humiliated and disgraced.
A trace of emotion struck Ye Zhi’s heart. Sheng Man had occupied her identity for so long – this was just the beginning.
Ye Zhi’s lips opened slightly, and uttered a word coldly, “Yeah.”
Sheng Man could not bear being in their presence. She found an excuse to go back to her room. Before she went upstairs, she glanced at Nie Jiqing and Ye Zhi.
When Nie Jiqing was talking to Ye Zhi, her face was very gentle. The two of them had different faces, but they had very similar auras.
It seemed that Ye Zhi and Nie Jiqing were in the same team. What about her? She was more like the outsider, an adopted daughter who never fit into the Sheng family.
And her adoptive mother was siding with an outsider just now, criticizing herself mercilessly.
Sheng Man’s face was as white as a sheet. She walked up the stairs step by step, grumbling silently. She was clearly standing in the Sheng family’s house, but she felt that she was separated from the Sheng family by a mile.
After completing his work for the day, Gu Ren went to the mall. He personally picked out a Cartier bracelet as a gift for Ye Zhi.
He had always given out stuff to her, but this gift was different.
