The Legitimate Daughter Doesn’t Care! - Chapter 406
After Xu Xinduo and Tong Yan looked at each other, his eyes softened instantly as he continued, “The fairy-like beauty in the pastel pink dress is my girlfriend and she is also turning 18 today. Oh… My cheap brother-in-law is apparently also celebrating his birthday today. So, I would like to take the opportunity to wish both of them a happy birthday.”
After Tong Yan waited for the blessings and applause to cease, he added, “When we get engaged, I will invite you again to participate in the ceremony.”
This sentence was obviously said as a joke, but it was very worth-mentioning. It indicated that when he became engaged, he would still keep ties with everyone who were present in this hall. As soon as Tong Yan said that, a crowd of people fervently clapped their hands and his good friends all cheered good-naturedly.
After Tong Yan finished speaking his mind, he officially recited the lines that he had memorised and prepared for.
This birthday celebration was a somewhat commercial event as there were partners of the Tong family’s industry everywhere. As a child of said family, Tong Yan naturally had to bear and deal with the pressure.
All he could do was use this occasion to do something that made him happy.
He was now at his happiest when he was able to announce to the world that Xu XInduo was his girlfriend. Also, he was ecstatic to let everyone know that his girlfriend was drop dead gorgeous.
Xu Xinduo listened to Tong Yan’s speech with a smile before she took out her mobile phone silently and sent a message to Brother Zhang.
Xu Xinduo: [Brother Zhang, I’m sorry. He announced that I am in a relationship publicly.]
Brother Zhang: [???]
Brother Zhang: [How did it make it public?]
Xu Xinduo: [He mentioned that I was his girlfriend at his birthday banquet.]
Brother Zhang: [Oh, that’s fine.]
Xu Xinduo: [There were many people present, as well as media reporters.]
Then, she also posted a small video of the scene.
Brother Zhang: [My reply to you just now was based on your boyfriend’s character, but anyways, I will think of a way. I will have a voice conference with the manager on the artist’s side later.]
It was time for the opening dance.
Xu Xinduo walked down from the second floor and as the bright lights casted a warm glow, it made the girl shine even more.
Tong Yan walked over and stretched out his hand to take hers. Then, he led her to the middle of the dance floor.
The combination of a handsome man and a beautiful woman— to have such a couple stand together, it was truly a sight for sore eyes.
The two danced gracefully to the music as they cooperated seamlessly and tacitly.
The girl didn’t seem to have an ounce of anxiety or fright. Her movements were natural and graceful throughout the entire dance.
Even if some people thought that Xu Xinduo was not suited to be the daughter-in-law of the Tong family, they had to admit that she had an absolutely confident temperament.
After the dance, Tong Yan took Xu Xinduo’s hand and walked towards Yin Hua and Tong Yukai. He whispered to her, “I will be busy until late today, so you and your mother can go home in a while. I think your mother doesn’t look very comfortable here. At any rate, I’ll try to see you by 12am.”
“No, you have a good rest.”
“No, I have to celebrate your birthday.”
“Does this not count?”
“You’re celebrating my birthday now, but I’m participating in a business event. Every fibre of my being is protesting against this.”
When Yin Hua saw Xu Xinduo, she said affectionately, “Duoduo is so beautiful today, don’t you think?”
Tong Yukai glanced at Xu Xinduo after being asked about his opinion and then replied, “It’s alright.”
Tong Yan hurriedly said, “You’re beautiful! You look super beautiful.”
Xu Xinduo was super satisfied with Tong Yan’s support.
