Chapter 290: Engagement
Qiao Yanze stared at Li Yinian and his eyes shrank.
He couldnt even hear his partner talking to him.
The ceremony was extremely simple.
It only took three minutes, but for Qiao Yanze, those were the most torturous three minutes he had ever experienced.
Yu Shuhang walked to him and patted his shoulder.
“Are you okay”
Qiao Yanze forced himself to look away.
His face was pale, but his eyes had a startling look.
“Im fine.” He smiled, raised his glass and finished it.
“Oh right, wheres Shiting” Yu Shuhang looked around.
Yu Shuhang wasnt in the banquet hall just now, and Qiao Yanze had been distracted, so they hadnt noticed Ji Shiting and Ye Shengge arguing.
“Here.” Ji Shiting appeared beside them with a glass in hand.
“Ill go say hi to Xiao Cheng.”
He walked forward, and Xie Siqi followed behind him.
She bit her lips and grabbed his arm again.
Yu Shuhang glanced at Qiao Yanze and said, “Why do I feel that… Shitings emotions seem a little off too”
“Oh really” Qiao Yanze answered.
Yu Shuhang clicked his tongue and said, “Youre hopeless.”
Ji Shiting and Xie Siqi walked forward and gave Xiao Cheng their blessings.
Xiao Ruilang stood behind Xiao Cheng and smiled.
Although Xiao Cheng was already old, he had taken good care of himself well.
At least he wasnt senile.
He chuckled and said, “Its rare that youre willing to give me face.”
He then picked up a glass of wine.
“You must be kidding.” Ji Shiting clinked glasses with him and smiled.
“How can I not be part of your big day”
Xiao Cheng laughed heartily.
The bride Li Yinian didnt seem upset at all.
She seemed to be immersed in happiness.
Her smile was perfect, and she would glance at her newlywed husband from time to time.
Qiao Yanze paid attention to Li Yinians expression because of his friend, but he could only sympathize with her.
After chatting for a bit, Xie Siqi sent Xiao Cheng a blessing on behalf of Xies family.
Li Yinian thanked her as the mistress of the house, and the four of them raised their glasses again.
As the bride and grooms junior, Xiao Ruilang could only be a silent filial son, but he didnt seem to mind being ignored.
He kept smiling, and no one knew what was on his mind.
“By the way, Old Master Xiao.” Ji Shiting took a sip of wine and smiled.
“I remember that the Xiao family and Xie family have an engagement, right Siqi is my eldest sister now.
My mother asked me to ask you to talk about your son and Ms.
Xie Siqi and Xiao Ruilangs eyes narrowed.
“Engagement” He chuckled.
“Why didnt I know about that”
The engagement arrangement with the Xie family.” Xiao Cheng nodded.
“Its been more than twenty years, and the Xie family hasnt mentioned it.
I imagined that the Xie family didnt mean it, so I didnt mention it.”
Xie Siqis eyes gleamed, “Old Master Xiao, Im here today to…”
“I think Ms.
Xie and your son are a match made in heaven.” Ji Shiting smiled and interrupted her.
“However, you cant expect the woman to take the initiative regarding the marriage.
What Xie family means is that if you dont have any opinions about the engagement arrangement, I hope you can come to Xies house to propose the marriage.”
