Chapter 94: She Wants to Go Fishing
Ye Qingran returned to the Ye residence just as Lin Shu’er was about to leave.
“Qingran, why did you suddenly come back?” Lin Shu’er put down the bag in her hand and pulled Ye Qingran to sit on the sofa. “Why didn’t you inform me in advance? Mommy has an appointment, so I can only sit with you for a while.”
“An appointment with Dina?” Ye Qingran asked.
“That’s right, I’m from Jiang City, and she came all the way here, so I definitely have to act as a host and greet her properly.”
“Hasn’t she been here for a while already? She still needs you to entertain her? Could it be that you paid for all of her meals and expenses in Jiang City?”
“She has helped me so much, I definitely have to thank her properly.”
As Lin Shu’er spoke, she restrained her smile.
She said in a deep voice, “You are still young. There are some things that you don’t understand. On the surface, everyone looks the same, but that’s not always the case. Some people were born with good lives. Mother only wants to give you the best.”
Originally, her daughter should have been pampered and spoiled.
She should have been protected like a flower in the palm of her hand.
But at that time, in order to marry into the Ye family, she had to raise her daughter as a son.
For so many years, she felt extremely guilty.
But she didn’t know how to restore her daughter’s identity without being chased out of the Ye family.
She wanted to enter that circle and find the best man in Jiang City.
She hoped that in the future, when her daughter returned to her female identity, he wouldn’t care about her pretending to be a man.
And in the future, he could give her happiness.
Lin Shu’er said, “This is just the beginning. When mommy is more familiar with them, I will definitely bring you there often.”
Ye Qingran did not understand what Lin Shu’er meant.
Everyday, people would say that everyone is equal.
However, societal class was invisible.
It could not be seen or touched, but it was real.
She asked, “Tell me everything that happened after you met that Dina. Also, did you sign any contracts between the two of you? If so, show me all the contracts.”
Lin Shu’er looked at her in confusion. “Why?”
Ye Qingran did not tell her immediately. Instead, she asked, “Do you want to divorce Ye Jun?”
Lin Shu’er immediately shook her head. “Of course not.”
Ye Qingran said, “If you don’t want to, then you’d better pretend to be sick for the next month and try not to meet Dina.”
Lin Shu’er looked at Ye Qingran and realized that her daughter was standing with her back against the light, with a cold and serious countenance.
She had never seen such a side of her daughter in all these years.
It seemed like something big had happened, and her heart tightened.
She only hesitated for a moment before nodding. She led Ye Qingran upstairs and showed her the contract.
Ye Qingran took a look and found that there was nothing wrong with the fund contract.
She put the contract away.
She said to Lin Shu’Er, “You’ve already made an appointment for today’s meal, so you definitely have to show up. However, you have a goal in today’s meal. Apart from informing Dina you will donate a set of ruby jewelry for the charity auction, you need to advice Dina, that if she wants more customers to the auction, she should name a spokesperson for the fund. This person will be the one who donated the most items and also bid the most money during the auction. You also have to promise that you will support this spokesperson behind the scenes. Tell her that the position of the female lead in the upcoming movie you are planning will be given to this spokesperson.”
In this way, the foundation and the Ye family would have a deeper connection.
This was exactly what Dina wanted. Dina would definitely not refuse.
The more Lin Shu’er heard, the more confused she became.
She asked, “Why? Why am I planning to shoot a movie? If Dina asks me this, how am I going to answer her?”
Ye Qingran said, “Of course you’re planning to make a movie to support Second Brother. You have to tell Dina that the male lead has to be second brother.”
Lin Shu’er frowned. “Why should I support Second Brother? Qingran, you risked your life to save him last time, and now you’re planning to make a movie for him. When… did you become so close to him?”
“I can only tell you that I’m doing all this to save you. That Dina had a motive when she got close to you.” Ye Qingran looked at her. Her gaze was as calm as water, and there was a trace of seriousness in it.
Lin Shu’er was shocked. “A motive? No way. Dina is a very nice person. Moreover, I helped her before. Why would she treat me like this?”
Ye Qingran told Lin Shu’er all of her guesses.
She said, “Believe it or not, I don’t want to be Ye Jun’s son at all right now. But what about you? If Dina really lied to you, and you ended up harming the Ye family, don’t tell me you don’t want to be Ye Jun’s wife anymore?”
“You’re hurting mom’s heart. How could mom not believe you? This is just too shocking.” Lin Shu’er’s eyes were red as she spoke, and she felt like crying.
“No matter how shocked you are, if you feel that you can’t act like nothing happened in front of Dina, then you don’t have to go. Just call her.”
Lin Shu’er collected her emotions. “No, I want to go. I don’t know what you want to do, but I believe in you unconditionally and will support you.”
Her tone became calm and determined.
Only when she was facing Ye Jun, she was like an empty-headed sweetheart.
The rest of the time, Lin Shu’er was very shrewd and rational.
During dinner that night, Ye Qingran received a call from Lin Shu’er.
She told Ye Qingran that Dina had accepted her suggestion and that the charity auction was going to be huge. Other than the wealthy ladies, some celebrities would also be invited.
Ye Qingran curled her lips and smiled.
The bait had already been set.
No one knew who would take the bait.
Chu Yan was not the only one having dinner at home tonight. He Cizhou was also there.
He looked at Ye Qingran’s enigmatic smile and could not help but ask, “Little friend, I feel that your smile is sinister. Who are you scheming against?”
Ye Qingran looked at him innocently. “Scheming? No, I’m such a pure and innocent person. How could I scheme against people?”
Chu Yan suddenly picked up some food for He Cizhou.
He Cizhou was touched when he saw this. “Chu Yan, oh my god, after so many years, you finally have some humanity. You’re finally treating me good…”
Before he could finish his sentence, Chu Yan cut him off. “Eat your food! Even with so many dishes, you can’t shut your mouth!”
He Cizhou: “…”
He was enraged. “What the hell! I must have been blind to befriend you! What sin am I atoning for? Could time please turn back and remove him from my life.”
Chu Yan replied, “There’s no need for time to turn back, you can remove yourself now.”
Ye Qingran, who was seated beside him, could not help but laugh. “…”
He Cizhou felt sullen and looked at her snappily. “Little friend, you still dare to laugh?”
He revealed a sinister smile. “I can’t bully Chu Yan, but don’t think I can’t bully you.”
Chu Yan glanced at him. “Then why don’t you try.”
