Yun Jian smiled back looking at Dai Qingqing’s sincere face.
“Hello, I’m Yun Jian,” she replied as she shook hands with Dai Qingqing.
“Heh heh.” Dai Qingqing chuckled after she retracted her hand wearing a bright smile. She seemed like a guileless young girl.
Yun Jian knew that the young mother just now would not have relented if Dai Qingqing had not stepped out in time to claim that she was her friend. To be fair, she had helped her.
“Right, how did you manage to offend her just now?” The handshake signified their acquaintance, so Dai Qingqing asked Yun Jian with a smile.
The latter recounted what happened just now briefly and Dai Qingqing fumed for her. “She’s always been self-centered like that. It’s been a long time since I began to dislike her.”
As she spoke, she deflated. “But I’m only an illegitimate daughter. If grandpa didn’t acknowledge my birth, I’d have been chased out of the door by now.”
Dai Qingqing’s affability kept Yun Jian listening to her unknowingly.
Zhang Zhifan and Duan Lei had already proceeded to the front desk to declare themselves and collected keys to three rooms.
Since Dai Qingqing was also staying in this hotel and was already quite familiar with the place, she led the trio upstairs. As they walked, she continued telling Yun Jian about herself.
Dai Qingqing was Cai Wenhui’s younger sister but they had different mothers. Dai Qingqing’s mother was the mistress of Cai Wenhuio’s father; in that case, Dai Qingqing was truly the despicable daughter out of wedlock.
“After giving birth to me, my mom passed away when I was ten. Grandpa insisted on taking me home despite the family’s protest and had even registered one-third of the company’s asset inheritance under my name. That’s why the Cai Family loathe me but they dare not lay a finger on me,” Dai Qingqing told Yun Jian.
Although they had just gotten to know each other, Dai Qingqing’s instinct told her that Yun Jian was a friend worth making.
The father of Cai Wenhui and Dai Qingqing had a total of three daughters. His eldest daughter, Cai Wenhui, was currently married to the president of Longwen Group; his second daughter, Cai Wenling, was now married to the boss of Panthers Pack. Dai Qingqing followed her mother’s surname as she was, after all, an illegitimate child.
The current director of their father’s company was their grandfather and the reason Cai Wenhui dared not harm Dai Qingqing was because their grandfather had given inheritance, which was the company’s share, to the latter.
Their grandfather had only the three of them as granddaughters, so the company would be passed to them sooner or later.
It was complicated but Yun Jian listened to Dai Qingqing until she was done.
Fate was a funny thing. Some people had just gotten to know each other, barely considered friends, but they felt comfortable like they had been friends for years.
To Yun Jian, Dai Qingqing was one of those people and perhaps the only one.
In the end, Dai Qingqing stayed in Yun Jian’s room to chat with her. Since Yun Jian had nothing to do either, she kept the conversation going.
When noon came, Dai Qingqing volunteered to take Yun Jian and the men to a neighboring restaurant for boxed lunches.
“Yun Jian, let me take you to the largest ice-skating rink in Hang City after lunch! It’s filled with people there. I need to play host and take you there no matter what you came all the way from Longmen City!” Dai Qingqing offered as she ate.
