Faced with Si Yi who had suddenly appeared, everyone was stunned while Yun Jian narrowed her eyes slightly. Qin Yirou and Dong Ruan paused in a stupor as they were not expecting to see Si Yi at all.
What shocked them the most, however, was the word “mother-in-law” from Si Yi. There was no doubt that it referred to Qin Yirou. Si Yi did not say “future mother-in-law”; this meant that he had acknowledged Yun Jian to be his, he no longer allowed the latter to back out of their relationship.
In comparison to Qin Yirou and Dong Ruan’s reaction, Yang Weiting, and others had never met Si Yi before. Yang Weiting, specifically, laughed mockingly when she managed to process that Qin Yirou was the mother-in-law Si Yi was saying. “Mother-in-law? Tsk tsk...”
When the woman laughed, Mo Sen had already turned to leave them. The woman was still looking at Qin Yirou in derision. “Qin Yirou, already a mother-in-law so soon? Hah, your daughter seems to be only in junior high.”
As she spoke, she took a contemptuous glance at Yun Jian before taking a glimpse at Si Yi who had just appeared only to catch the young man’s gorgeous face. Even when Yang Weiting was already middle-aged, she could not help gasping when she looked at Si Yi but she snapped out of it swiftly.
“I see. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. You dropped out of high school while your daughter found a man so soon. Planning to cling and clamber your way up to high society?” Yang Weiting made another jab at Qin Yirou.
Yang Weiting paused to think over it. Her husband was the manager of the largest plastic processing factory in Longmen City and was personally worth over millions of yuan in assets. She had attended numerous events and functions with her husband, having been to pretty much all the big and small networking events in Longmen City, but she had never seen Si Yi.
She was quick to decide and automatically assumed that Si Yi was just an arrogant young man. Who was he kidding? Was United Luenmei Shopping Center somewhere he could buy just because he wanted to?
Anyone with millions of yuan in assets was considered rich in Longmen City during this era. Combining all the assets of each shop in United Luenmei Shopping Center, however, it would be worth tens of millions if not 100 million Chinese yuan.
Even if Si Yi was a wealthy heir, would he be that affluent? Was this a joke?
After all, the value of money was higher back in this era compared to the current times. One yuan during then was perhaps 10 to 20 yuan now.
After Yang Weiting mocked Qin Yirou, she turned to look at Si Yi who was making his way to Yun Jian, and could not help reprimanding him, “Young man, you have quite the looks but all that came out from your mouth is nonsense. This is uncultured!”
She could not help bragging about herself after that. “Forget it. It’s useless telling you all about these. Those who aren’t born rich will never have the riches’ grace!”
As Yang Weiting rambled on, many more around her were offended. Even the group who had been with her just now was a little piqued because the majority of them had an average family background.
While the woman yapped, Si Yi had come to Yun Jian with his fair long hand stretched out to gently stroke the girl’s head right before everyone.
Qin Yirou was ruffled about Yang Weiting too, but she was too much of a softie and worried about escalating the matter. When Si Yi stood up for her just now, it added to Qin Yirou’s impression of the young man.
Since no one was bothered with her, Yang Weiting thought that she was making sense and continued her absurd speech. It was until she thought that Si Yi, Yun Jian, and others had all listened to what she said when Si Yi patted Yun Jian’s head without a glance at the woman, telling the girl softly, “You don’t have to listen to what the trash said. I’ll eliminate any trash that dreams about bullying you for you.”
