When Nie Jiqing arrived in the kitchen, her sight immediately landed on the chef and asked, “Did the young lady ask you to make chicken soup for her today?”
The chef remembered Sheng Man’s instruction and said without any hesitation: “Madam, the chicken is made by the young lady. I didn’t interfere.”
Upon saying that, the chef glanced at Nie Jiqing, observing her reaction. To his surprise, there didn’t seem to be a trace of emotion on her face. She did not seem touched nor surprised even though he said that the chicken soup was made by Sheng Man.
The chef was stunned.
A few seconds later, Nie Jiqing asked again, her tone remaining unchanged: “I’ll ask you again, is the chicken soup really made by the young lady?”
Nie Jiqing’s voice was not so heavy, but when the chef heard it, his heart trembled.
The chef was baffled. Why was madam’s attitude toward Sheng Man so different? In the past, no matter what the young lady did, madam would always be very happy.
The chef no longer thought about it. At this moment, he was only anxious that he might lose his job, thus he didn’t hesitate to abandon Sheng Man’s instruction and immediately told Nie Jiqing the truth: “I made the chicken soup.”
Nie Jiqing was not surprised anymore when she heard it. She looked at the chef and said: “You don’t need to tell the young lady about my visit.”
Although the chef didn’t understand what happened between Nie Jiqing and Sheng Man, he didn’t dare think too much about it anymore and just simply nodded.
When Nie Jiqing returned home, she pondered for a while and sent someone to investigate the recent activities of Sheng Lian and Sheng Bang. Recently, Sheng Man had been relentlessly flattering her for no reason. Something must have happened.
Nie Jiqing waited at home for the man’s reply.
In the evening, Nie Jiqing received a reply from that person. The man reported: “Sheng Bang went to gambling again recently and owes a lot of debt…”
After hanging up the phone, Nie Jiqing’s expression became colder and colder.
In the past few years, the Sheng family had greatly helped Sheng Bang pay off his gambling debts because of Sheng Man. However, Sheng Bang had become more and more arrogant with time and owed a lot of money.
Nie Jiqing sneered. The Sheng family had given them too many things over the years so they had started to take it for granted.
What if one day, the big tree called the Sheng family no longer sheltered them?
A hint of coldness flashed in Nie Jiqing’s eyes.
Gu Ren was sitting in his room when he opened the gift box. There was a watch lying quietly inside.
Seeing the watch, Gu Ren raised his eyebrows. He naturally knew what it meant to give someone a watch. Even Ye Zhi wouldn’t have thought much when she bought the watch. However, he still liked this gift a lot.
Gu Ren carefully put the watch back into the box and then carefully put it on the cabinet by the bed. As long as he tilted his head slightly, he would catch a glimpse of the watch.
Gu Ren lay on the bed with his one hand under his head. In the silence, Ye Zhi’s confession seemed to resound in his ears again.
“I like you too.”
At that moment, Gu Ren clearly saw Ye Zhi’s red ears and clearly felt her chaotic emotions.
She also liked him. Just as this thought passed his mind, Gu Ren couldn’t restrain his smile.
Gu Ren was going to attend an event the next day. Before he left home, he put on the watch that Ye Zhi gave him. When Gu Ren arrived at the venue, he stood on the stage, tall and straight.
