Chapter 2268: I Didn’t Expect You to be a Mistress (9)
As soon as Tang Chuan uttered these words, everyone's gazes shot towards the door, where they saw Shen Mingxi walk in with Huo Yanyan.
He was wearing a black fitted suit, while she was wearing an orange cocktail dress with a splash of makeup on.
Huo Mian had to admit that Huo Yanyan was really pretty when she was all dolled up, but she felt distant from the woman standing in front of her.
They hadn't seen each other since the kidnapping, and it actually felt like it had been years.
"Why are they here?" Jiang Xiaowei was surprised. Ever since Shen Mingxi and Wei Ying divorced, the two families' relationship had broken down as well. Wei Liao and Shen Mingxi's friendship was basically over, and a lot of the times, Su Yu felt caught in the middle.
"Young Master Shen here is good friends with Young Master Su, and Ni Yang is the star of Imperial Star. So of course he's here," Tang Chuan interrupted.
As the host and hostess of the wedding, Qin Chu and Huo Mian walked up to them as a courtesy. After saying hi to Shen Mingxi, Huo Mian looked at Huo Yanyan with a complicated expression on her face.
"Yanyan, it's been a while."
"It has. Where are Pudding and Little Bean?" Huo Yanyan asked with a smile.
"They're the flower girls for today's wedding and are getting ready in the back. Where's Tiantian?" Huo Mian asked back.
"Tiantian didn't come, she had piano lessons." Huo Yanyan seemed as confident as could be. Huo Mian could tell that Shen Mingxi must have treated her well.
Huo Yanyan's arm was casually and intimately linked with Shen Mingxi's – their relationship was obvious.
After a polite exchange, Huo Mian invited them in, and Shen Mingxi walked inside with Huo Yanyan.
They greeted Su Yu and the others, but Wei Liao's expression was sour from the very start. He was usually capable of keeping his cool, but this time, he couldn't take it any longer.
"Young Master Shen, you got divorced, what, two weeks ago, and you already have a new girlfriend?" Wei Liao snorted.
Upon hearing this, Jiang Xiaowei looked at her husband with surprise; she didn't expect to hear something like this from him.
Shen Mingxi's expression fell as he looked Wei Liao in the eye. "The length of my divorce isn't important, and I'm not flaunting my new relationship. Yanyan is my girlfriend, isn't it normal for me to take her out? Don't think too much into it, Young Master Wei."
"But your actions are equivalent to slapping the Wei Family in the face, how can I not think too much into it? Ying loved you from the bottom of her heart. If you didn't like her, you didn't have to marry her and then break her heart… what are your intentions behind bring a girlfriend to an event like this? Are you declaring war against our family?"
"Wei Liao, don't be like that…" Tang Chuan tried to calm Wei Liao down, but the latter shook his head with a grim expression on his face. "This is between our families, stay out of it…"
His remarks immediately shut both Tang Chuan and Su Yu up. The latter was well aware of Wei Liao's temper, so he decided not to cut in.
Zhu Lingling whispered in Jiang Xiaowei's ear, "I've never seen your husband angry…"
"Me neither, it's freaky…" Jiang Xiaowei and Wei Liao had been married for years, and their son, Wei Yunchu, was four years old. However, she had never seen her husband so mad; Wei Liao's anger towards Shen Mingxi was evident.
"Young Master Wei, please don't be like this. It takes two people to make a relationship work. Mingxi and your sister weren't meant to be together, so why try to make them work…" Huo Yanyan refuted.
"Shut up, you nasty little mistress… you brought shame onto the Huo Family," Wei Liao spat at Huo Yanyan scornfully.
As soon as Huo Yanyan heard the word 'mistress', her expression changed drastically. After all, it wasn't a nice word to hear.
