Chapter 2269: I Didn’t Expect You to be a Mistress (10)
Shen Mingxi wasn't pleased either. "Young Master Wei, why attack a woman? It'll only make you seem petty."
"But you're not petty, are you? Burning your bridges and casting aside your wife to be with your mistress?" Wei Liao shot back.
After staring at Wei Liao for a good ten seconds, Shen Mingxi finally said something with extreme calmness. "My relationship with your sister isn't what it seems from the outside. You should really ask her what she's done at the Shen Family after we got married… That's all I want to say now. I'm here to congratulate Young Master Su and his employee's marriage. I'm not here to cause trouble…" Then, he turned around and walked into the ballroom with Huo Yanyan.
Wei Liao was so mad that his face became as pale as a sheet of paper.
"Honey, are you alright?" Jiang Xiaowei had never seen her husband like this. She was heartbroken and wanted to help Wei Liao, but Shen Mingxi was Su Yu's friend and here for a wedding. If she were to use her machine-gun of a mouth to attack Shen Mingxi and Huo Yanyan, everyone would feel awkward and it would ruin the wedding. Therefore, she chose to stay silent.
"I'm fine, Honey." Wei Liao's gaze immediately became tender when it landed on Jiang Xiaowei.
"Dad, don't be mad…" Wei Yunchu reached out and stroked Wei Liao's face.
"Yu, I'm going to go back to work, there's stuff at the office I have to deal with. Xiaowei can take care of the rest," Wei Liao suggested, and Su Yu, knowing what was going on in his friend's head, immediately agreed.
He patted Wei Liao on the shoulder. "Mhm, let's go out for a drink later."
"Xiaowei, have fun with Yunchu. I'll pick you guys up later."
"Sure, drive safe." Jiang Xiaowei knew her husband had to leave right away, so she decided to let him be.
"Tell Huo Mian and Qin Chu that I had to go, okay?" Then, Wei Liao turned around to leave.
"Wei Liao really lost his cool today," Gao Ran commented.
"No matter how calm a person seems, he'll always lose his cool when it comes to family. Although my sister-in-law is arrogant and domineering and even I don't like her, my husband's always been on her side since, after all, they're siblings. I know how he must feel, do you guys know what Wei Ying did when she first got divorced?" Jiang Xiaowei replied, biting her lips.
"I heard about it, she cut her wrist and took sleeping pills, right? I heard she even jumped off from a second-floor balcony." Tang Chuan was always the group's encyclopedia of gossip. He knew everything about everyone.
Jiang Xiaowei nodded.
"Damn, she did all those things? Your sister-in-law is no easy character," Zhu Lingling said, dumbfounded.
"She's had a silver spoon in her mouth ever since she was born, and her family gave her everything she ever wanted. Being cast away by Shen Mingxi really took a toll on her… She was acting like a crazy person and everyone in her family was heartbroken for her… My in-laws are exhausted by her behavior, and my husband is constantly worried as well," Jiang Xiaowei said with a sigh.
After Shen Mingxi and Huo Yanyan went into the ballroom, the former saw some business acquaintances and went up to say hi, while Huo Yanyan got herself some desserts and sat down to enjoy them.
After greeting a bunch of guests, Huo Mian saw Huo Yanyan sitting alone, so she walked up to her with a serious expression on her face. "Yanyan…"
Upon hearing her own name, Huo Yanyan immediately looked up to see Huo Mian, and she put down the plate in her hand. She seemed to know what Huo Mian was here to talk to her about.
"I really can't believe you became his mistress…" Huo Mian said, genuinely disappointed by Huo Yanyan's choices.
