Chapter 1705 - It's Okay. I'm Blind.
Ye Tingyun thought that even a monster would not hurt its own children. No matter how vicious someone was, there was no way that he would kill his own wife and children—even if the child brought great chaos to the family.
But the human heart is unpredictable. Who knows?
"It has been hard on you," Ye Tingyun said. If he found her earlier, her days would have been better. Even if what had happened in the past made the Tang En Family disown her, he could stay by her side. He had the means to raise her up and to provide her with good education and proper care.
"It's not. That's why I'm so happy to see you," Emma said. "All the pain is in the past."
Ye Tingyun asked, "Where's your playmate?"
"Didn't you tell me that you had a best friend called Daisy? Was she burnt by the fire as well?" Ye Tingyun asked.
"She… escaped. We couldn't find her corpse. My caregiver has been looking for her, but I've never seen her since then." Emma lowered her head and hugged Ye Tingyun suddenly. Then, she cried miserably.
Ye Chu was bored of sitting there. She yawned. Ye Tingyun was not there, and she was bored of sitting alone. She was also pretending to be blind, so she was afraid that people would see through her. Ye Ling's eyes were too sharp. She was very focused, fearing that he would sense something. This was a very exhausting thing to do, but she had her reasons that could not be expressed.
Shen Qianshu noticed her tiredness and smiled. "What's wrong? Are you tired?"
Shen Qianshu called for Mi Er. "Ye Chu is a little tired. Go and ask around for Ye Tingyun's whereabouts."
Mi Er left. Ye Junchen attended the ball at MISS today. He came a little late. This was the first year that the European Ye Family and the Ye Family had cleared up their conflicts. It was also the first year that they supported him silently. He needed to present himself in the best way in front of the owners.
"Ah Ling, sister…" Ye Junchen smiled and greeted them. Ye Ling nodded coldly. Tong Hua waved back happily, asking for a red packet for auspicious reasons.
Shen Qianshu was used to Ye Ling's social skills. It was hopeless. He was like this to his family as well. She chatted with Ye Junchen happily, and Ye Junchen was sitting beside Ye Chu.
"She's Ye Chu, a friend of Tingyun."
"Hi, Miss Ye Chu." Ye Junchen greeted Ye Chu and looked at her face. He was startled for a moment. They made eye contact, but there was no expression in Ye Chu's eyes. She had acted the role of a blind person really well.
Shen Qianshu explained the issue about her eyes, and Ye Junchen regained his senses. He chatted with Shen Qianshu, but he could not help but look towards Ye Chu. Ye Ling noticed something as well.
He frowned and thought to himself. This is my younger brother's woman. Is he trying to get involved somehow?
Ye Ling coughed. "Don't have any other intentions."
"… " Ye Junchen was speechless.
Hold up, did you misunderstand something?
Tong Hua said without hesitation since he was a child, "Uncle, why do you keep looking at Miss Ye Chu? Second Uncle would be mad."
"D-D-Don't misunderstand me!" Ye Junchen looked really awkward. "I think that Miss Ye Chu looks rather familiar. It's like I've seen her somewhere before."
Shen Qianshu and Tong Hua exchanged a glance.
This is the scheme to start flirting.
The mother and son looked at him with the same expression. The only thing lacking was the sentence: "We all know of this scheme.".
Ye Junchen waved and said, "Miss Ye Chu, sorry for the disrespect.. Please don't take it to heart."
