“Ay, sure!” Qin Yirou agreed to Yun Jian’s offer right away when she snapped out of her trance.
Other than Dong Ruan, her best friend for life, Qin Yirou truly was not reluctant to part with any of her so-called high school friends. Needless to say, it was not because she had an altruistic heart for not fighting back when she was usually bullied; a big part of the reason was because she was scared of escalating the matter.
To Qin Yirou, being meek and timid was her most obvious weakness. That was not to say Qin Yirou did not hate anyone. She was only human. She would resent or be annoyed with someone under normal circumstances as well. However, someone like her would not say it out loud; she would only keep what she thought in the bottom of her heart.
Now that Yun Jian was successful and doing well, it was the biggest pride and contentment to Qin Yirou.
“A-Yi, let’s go.” Qin Yirou agreed with Yun Jian and turned to call for Si Yi, apparently seeing him as her son-in-law now.
Dating at a young age was not the best, but for Qin Yirou, if her Xiao Jian and Xiao Yi found each other compatible, she would not oppose it. On the contrary, she would give them all her support. After all, Qin Yirou was someone who got married and pregnant early too, although that was not a young love—she had never loved when she got married to Yun Gang.
Nonetheless, that was not to say she had never harbored hopes toward Yun Gang back then. Since what happened after that, however, all the fantasies and dreams became nothing to Qin Yirou.
Fortunately, she was able to meet Officer Ge in her remaining years.
Once she thought about Ge Junjian’s patience and their shared interest and compatibility, Qin Yirou looked forward to their future.
“Mn, let’s go,” Si Yi replied Qin Yirou. With a smile, he stretched his hand to grab Yun Jian’s and made his way to the bridal shop named Geli Bridal Boutique.
Mo Sen turned to follow while Qin Yirou and Dong Ruan were set to enter the shop as well when a sonorous male voice sounded, “Hold on!”
Qin Yirou and Dong Ruan were the first to halt their steps when they heard the voice. Yun Jian tugged Si Yi’s hand to twirl back around when she noticed that Qin Yirou did not keep up with them only to see Shen Zhong who insulted Qin Yirou together with Yang Weiting just now stopping Qin Yirou and Dong Ruan.
“Qin Yirou, Dong Ruan, I was wrong just now. I’ve accidentally accused you. I hope you can forgive me!” Shen Zhong apologized suddenly.
Then, he brought up what everyone had planned to leave and forget once again. “I thought that you both didn’t want to get associated with us. That’s why I said what I said. I know now that you’re here to buy a wedding dress, right? Haha, I’ve put the wrong blame on you! I hope you can forgive me!”
Shen Zhong’s eyes flitted about as he spoke. There was no doubt a reason for him to back down and give in currently. It had been some time since he had lost his job. Now that he had offended the mother of New Cruise’s director, he thought that he should bow down to Qin Yirou and Dong Ruan.
Qin Yirou was a softie and they were high school friends. It should not be too much of a challenge to have Qin Yirou ask her daughter to get him a job in New Cruise, right? Regardless, Shen Zhong’s decision to pander to Yun Jian meant that he was ready to fall out with Yang Weiting.
As expected, Yang Weiting was not relenting even after she knew that Yun Jian was New Cruise’s director. At Shen Zhong’s betraying shift of support, she shouted at him right away, “Shen Zhong, what’s the meaning of this? Haven’t you agreed that...”
Yang Weiting clammed up immediately when she got to the end.
