Liu Mei looked even more disdainful when she saw Qin Yirou. People her age usually did not like hanging out or traveling with older people in their forties or fifties because there would be a generation gap.
She was only more peeved after seeing Qin Yirou.
Although Qin Yirou was doing better financially now, she was used to wearing clothes she bought from the streets. These were what people usually called cheap stuff.
Liu Mei had called Qin Yirou and Yun Jian bumpkins because she assumed that they must not be rich from how regular they dressed; she even said it in front of her boyfriend’s mother, Mrs. Yang, without showing any tact. After that, she tucked some flyaway hair behind her ear to feign a cool western vibe.
Mrs. Yang did not expect her rebellious son to find an insolent girlfriend like this and was both disappointed and disgruntled. She berated him for getting a woman like Liu Mei directly, “Lin’er, Yirou is a good friend of mine. Make sure your girlfriend behaves or we do not welcome her!”
Mrs. Yang usually looked soft-spoken but she was, in fact, a tough woman. When Liu Mei criticized Qin Yirou and Yun Jian in front of her just now, it angered her and she lashed out directly.
Mrs. Yang was clear with what she meant. She was warning Liu Mei that the vacation was organized by her and Qin Yirou’s family. If Liu Mei despised them so much, she could get out of here herself.
Liu Mei was startled by what Mrs. Yang said. As if afraid that the latter would really oppose to her tagging along, her insolent expression took a change in a blink of eyes. As she looked at Mrs. Yang now, her thickly painted face showed a groveling expression. “Aunty, I’m always speaking my mind straightforwardly. Don’t mind me if I said anything that doesn’t sound nice!”
Despite what she said, Liu Mei rolled her eyes in her mind wondering if Yang Lin’s mother had gone crazy. Why would she be taking the side of Qin Yirou and family who were dressed like bumpkins and were surely poor people in just one glance?
Liu Mei had already forgotten that she had been poor herself. It was after having several rich boyfriends and keeping them happy that she now had branded stuff from head to toe.
Honestly, Yang Lin was basically Liu Mei’s sponsor. The latter had the mind to marry into the Yang Family, so she backed down and admitted her fault as soon as she heard what Mrs. Yang said.
“Hmph!” Mrs. Yang ignored Liu Mei and went over to help Qin Yirou with the backpack before leading the way to the bus stop.
There was a glint that flashed in Yun Jian’s eyes before she squinted slightly. Liu Mei was obviously hostile toward her but she did not know where that came from as she had never met Liu Mei.
Nonetheless, Yun Jian kept her usual principle. As long as Liu Mei did not provoke her or Qin Yirou, she would not do anything to her.
The city bus that the group was taking arrived at the east station shortly. As they got their tickets checked to board the bus, Mrs. Yang and others had gone up the bus while Yun Jian, Qin Yirou and Liu Mei were slower because they went to the washroom.
Liu Mei walked ahead with Qin Yirou behind her as both of them walked from the land to the staircase of the bus to board. Yun Jian was currently only making her way toward them from the washroom that was only about a dozen meter away from where the bus was stopped.
Just as Yun Jian came out of the washroom, she saw Qin Yirou taking a step up the staircase while Liu Mei who blocked the end of it suddenly flashed a sinister smile. Despite the distance, Yun Jian could see Liu Mei sneering at Qin Yirou soundlessly, “Hah, country bumpkin.”
Before she finished the words, Liu Mei stretched her leg to look like she had accidentally pushed Qin Yirou’s foot that was on the bus staircase. The push had shoved Qin Yirou off the last step of the bus staircase coincidentally.
Qin Yirou lost her balance on her back foot and fell backward from Liu Mei’s seemingly accidental push…
