I Started As A Novel Villain - Chapter 191
Wei Lao was full of energy and vitality as he entered the hall. He was dressed in a red Tang suit and moved towards the audience with the help of a young man.
The younger man supporting Wei Lao to walk wasn’t very attractive. His demeanor, on the other hand, was remarkable. Wei Dongqing, the oldest sibling, is a second-generation Wei family spouse.
Wei Luo sat straight, his eyes arched like a joyful moon crescent, and he nodded in greeting, supported by the three generations of the Wei family.
He had been at the top for a very long time. Although he appeared to be happy, there is a hidden meaning behind his grin that is intriguing to watch.
When they saw Senior Wei approaching, all of the visitors stood up. They didn’t dare to make a mistake in front of the banquet’s birthday star.
Immediately afterwards, the guests took their respective turns to congratulate Wei Lao and give him a present.
The first person in line was the younger nephew of the Wei family, then soon came Mu Zijin’s turn.
“Senior Wei, I’m here to wish you a happy birthday. My father is currently busy and dealing with health complications, therefore he asked me to present you with this gift. I wish you the best of success, and may you have a long and healthy life.”
Mu Zijin took a step forward, holding Ye Fei’s hand, and said.
Wei Luo smiled when he saw her, then looked at her hand, which was being held by Ye Fei, and responded, “Oh, Little Zijin, you’ve grown up. If I remember right, this is Ye Fei standing next to you? It’s unfortunate that my Wei family does not have such a blessing.”
He sighed for a while, knowing that Wei Lao had heard about Ye Fei.
However, the individual in question was unaware of this, causing Ye Fei’s heart to race.
Based on the narrative of the original novel, Ye Fei also understood that Wei Lao had purposefully brought Mu Zijin and Wei Dongqing together, but the two of them didn’t want to be in a relationship.
The plot wasn’t about affluent second-generation officials fighting for beautiful women; it was only that Mu Zijin didn’t like Wei Dongqing, and Wei Dongqing didn’t like her since his heart was already taken by someone else.
Senior Wei smiled slightly and opened her gorgeous cherry lips, saying, “Thank you for praising my boyfriend.”
She then gripped Ye Fei’s hand even tighter.
Mu Ziyu took the initiative to utter this sentence on such a prominent occasion, and it was enough to demonstrate her true character and willingness to treat Ye Fei with genuine care.
This was also the final sentence needed to cement Mu Zijin and Ye Fei’s romantic relationship.
There was a slight commotion all around as the words spread.
Chen Luo, Lei Haoran, Lei Ming, and many others all glanced at Ye Fei, their expressions complex.
These people were envious of Ye Fei’s good fortune.
But it was his ability to gain Mu Zijin’s favor that had astonished the crowd!
Furthermore, they disclosed their relationship in front of the entire circle of Yanjing’s numerous affluent families on such a big and important event.
Ye Fei immediately recognized Mu Zijin’s intentions from this.
He clutched her soft, delicate hand as he sensed the jealousy and envy in the eyes of the men around him. When he gazed at Mu Zijin, the corners of his mouth curved up and he couldn’t help but feel warmth enveloping his heart.
Wei Luo tilted his head slightly and locked his gaze on Ye Fei for a moment before saying, “You both are a golden man and a jade girl, you young people are full of vigor, such a fantastic love pair.”
As they stood in front of him, Wei Luo naturally wouldn’t embarrass the juniors, since in his eyes, Ye Fei is a very good successor and a well-behaved gentleman.
Of course, he was aware of Chen Luo and Ye Fei’s relationship, and while his position should have been more biased due to the favor he owed Chen Luo’s master, this didn’t stop him from appreciating Ye Fei.
They sat back in their seats after Ye Fei and Mu Zijin went to meet him and give their gift.
At this time, the eyes of the people around who were looking at Ye Fei couldn’t help but change slightly, and Chen Luo, who was seated, clenched his fists tightly.
Mu Zijin’s relationship with Ye Fei meant that he was now backed by the Mu family, making the already firmly rooted Ye family even more difficult to deal with.
Furthermore, the group of wealthy individuals and families that Chen Luo had wooed now had to decide if they had the personnel to deal with Ye Fei and whether it was the right move to form an alliance with Chen Luo.
These family businesses are all highly cunning, and they are all masters at bullying and instilling fear in lower-status companies.
But for now, the opening ceremony of the birthday banquet has been completed.
It was soon time to offer the guest food.
The format dishes on the table are not extravagant, nor do they have a variety of delicacies, but each plate was split healthily and made with fresh organic ingredients.
Wei Lao stepped up and raised his cup once the attendees were served, signaling that he wished to toast and drink with everyone else at the same moment.
When they saw his gesture, about a hundred others at the scene raised their glasses in unison. They were getting ready to drink and rejoice together.
Wei Lao sipped a little glass of wine while placing his lips on the cup and was going to speak, but he couldn’t!
The guests merely witnessed Wei Lao’s face grow pale as he gripped his chest before falling down and hitting the floor.
All of this happened in an instant, and the attendees all gasped in astonishment when they witnessed it.
Simultaneously, Ye Fei, who was gently swirling the wine in his cup, grinned heartily and quietly whispered, “My chance has arrived.”
He had been anticipating this moment.
Wei Lao suffered an accident during his birthday banquet, based on the original novel, he became ill and fainted, but thanks to the attending doctor who was following Wei Luo, he was saved, but not long after, they took him to the hospital, and it was precisely because of this that Chen Luo came forward proclaiming that he would be able to cure Senior Wei’s illness, which he did successfully, gaining the support of the Wei family.
Chen Luo was able to make the Wei family owe him a big favor and earned their entire support as a result of this, and when Chen Luo dealt with the Ye family, the Wei’s were vital to his plan.
But now, Ye Fei certainly wouldn’t let Chen Luo succeed!
He would grasp this important opportunity, which would otherwise benefit the protagonist Chen Luo, and seize it for himself.
It is precisely because of this that Ye Fei raised his medical skills to the level of a master.
With his current mastered medical skills, coupled with the help of the book he found, at this moment, Ye Fei’s skills were equivalent to Chen Luo’s Master.
Senior Wei’s skin was dreadfully pale, and Ye Fei watched him collapse with large beads of sweat, his brows clenched, his lips were dry, and his pupils were white.
Even a novice could understand that the circumstance in which Wei Luo found himself is extremely risky.
Wei Dongqing, who was standing next to him, screamed urgently, “”Come on, grab Dr. Xie!”
“Yes, Sir!,” said a housekeeper as she rushed out the door.
In these kinds of circumstances, he has a private doctor who looks after him at home and is also a well-known doctor in Yanjing, whose surname is Xie.
“It’s better to let me see him. Wei Lao’s condition cannot be delayed.” Chen Luo suddenly got up from his seat, and he also realized that this was a great opportunity.
Thinking of this, Chen Luo was immediately excited, and he behaved very politely while also scanning Wei Luo as if he was immediately trying to deduce the issue he was going through.
Seeing Chen Luo standing up and looking at his father, Wei Dongqing seemed to have grasped his life-saving straw.
Chen Luo is a disciple of a miracle doctor, which everyone is aware of.
