“Let’s have dinner first. I’m hungry.” Ye Shengge didn’t want to keep up with the conversation.
She hadn’t come prepared, so she could fall into that couple’s trap.
“You promised you’d support Siyuan to go to college overseas!” Li Wenqin yelled.
Ye Shengge had make a promise like that before because she had expected them to give back her inheritance.
However, it was pretty obvious that they didn’t want to give her inheritance back, so Ye Shengge wouldn’t admit it.
“Really?” Ye Shengge smiled. “I forgot about it.”
“Damn you!” Li Wenqin suddenly stood up.
“Mom!” Ye Siyan interrupted. “I don’t want to go overseas! Can you just let her have a peaceful dinner?”
Li Wenqin hadn’t expected her own daughter to argue against her. She glared at her daughter in anger.
“That’s right. Let Shengge have a peaceful dinner,” Ye Wenhua said.
Ye Shengge had almost lost all of her appetite. She had a few bites, then she prepared to leave.
“Wait a sec, cousin.” Ye Siyan smiled and said. “You haven’t been back for a long time. Don’t you want to check your bedroom?”
Ye Shengge was a bit surprised as she didn’t know what Ye Siyuan was planning.
“Come with me.” Ye Siyan dragged her upstairs.
She even helped her hang her bag on the rack.
This was the first time Ye Shengge had seen her being so polite, which was ironic.
Obviously, she was trying to ask for help. Ye Shengge didn’t want to ask, so she walked to the desk where she saw the books and toys she had used before.
And then, she turned around and saw Ye Siyan bringing a teacup with a big smile on her face, “Drink some water, cousin.”
Ye Shengge didn’t take it.
Although Ye Siyan was only eighteen years old, she was always cunning.
Ye Siyan saw Ye Shengge not say anything, so she had to confess.
“I don’t want to study anymore, cousin. I want to be a star,” she said in a low voice. “Can your company sign me?”
Ye Shengge frowned as she hadn’t expected the girl to be so ambitious.
“No. You’re not going to be famous,” Ye Shengge said without sugarcoating it.
“Why?” Ye Siyan was triggered. “I’m young and beautiful. Why not?”
“You don’t have any talent in acting, and your emotional intelligence is low. As for your look, well, it’s just mediocre in the entertainment world. Besides, your appearance won’t look good on the screen.” Ye Shengge looked at Ye Siyan. “Just study hard.”
Ye Siyan couldn’t have been more pissed, “Nonsense!”
“I only said that because I’m your cousin and care about you.” Ye Shengge said with a smile as she walked to the rack to get her bag.
Ye Siyuan glared at her as Ye Shengge walked away.
After a while, she dialed a number.
“You told me last night that you’d ask your brother to sign me if I can get evidence of Ye Shengge cheating on your brother, right? Is the deal still on?”
“Okay, just wait and see.” Ye Siyuan said smugly, then she hung up and followed Ye Shengge.
Ye Shengge went straight to Taoran House after leaving Ye’s family and opened a room.
It was still early, so Ye Shengge took out the script and started to rehearse. Xu Xiangjie called her at five in the afternoon telling her that he would arrive soon.
Ye Shengge told him the room number and took a pill from her bag.
She would take a pill every time she had a social occasion as she wanted to stay sober as long as she could.
However, the pill tasted a bit weird this time.
Had it gone bad?
She immediately put that thought away upon seeing Xue Xiangjie walking toward her.
