Chapter 28: No Such Thing as Coincidence

When Li Xiangrong heard this, her face darkened.

She lowered her head to look at Wei Keli.

This stinky rascal left Tan Mo alone last time and went to comfort Yuan Keqing again?

Tan Mo didn’t know what was wrong with her, but every time she saw Wei Keli, she wanted to set him up.

If she didn’t, she would feel uncomfortable.

She would rather do something to Wei Keli than feel uncomfortable.

Wei Keli didn’t notice it. He smiled and emphasized, “It’s nothing. I should take care of my sister. Mo Mo, thank you for not blaming me at all.”

Xu Mingzhen was secretly fuming with anger.

Fortunately, she had already given up on Wei Keli.

But seeing his reaction now, she couldn’t help being angry.

Mo Mo wasn’t angry because she was understanding and kind.

How could Wei Keli face Tan Mo and act as if nothing happened?

“Come and sit down.” Xu Mingzhen led them to the living room.

Not long after they sat down, the doorbell rang again.

Auntie Guo went to the door, but she came back shortly after. “Madam.”

Looking at Auntie Guo’s expression, Xu Mingzhen knew she had something important to say.

Xu Mingzhen was also curious as to why Aunt Guo didn’t open the door.

She didn’t know who was outside.

Xu Mingzhen walked to the door with Auntie Guo, only to see Aunt Guo pointing to the intercom and saying, “Mrs. Yuan and Keqing are here.”

Xu Mingzhen looked at the screen of the intercom. She was annoyed. “I didn’t call them.”

“It just so happens that they are here today. This…” Auntie Guo was aware of the family’s attitude towards Yuan Keqing.

She was okay with Xu Mingjing, but Yuan Keqing was unwelcome.

Besides, Li Xiangrong and Wei Keli were here today, but Xu Mingjing and Yuan Keqing didn’t inform them in advance that they were visiting.

Auntie Guo didn’t know whether or not to open the door.

Xu Mingzhen sneered, “They must have known that Wei Keli is coming today.” She shook her head. “No such thing as coincidence.”

Wei Keli must have informed Yuan Keqing that he would be here, so they came here on purpose.

Xu Mingzhen couldn’t even think of how Yuan Keqing could be so calculating at such a young age.

She was so young, yet she was already eyeing Wei Keli.

It’s a pity that Yuan Keqing’s intelligence wasn’t used for the right reasons.

Yuan Keqing hadn’t seen that Wei Keli wasn’t a reliable person.

Xu Mingzhen felt that Yuan Keqing was too young to think about marriage and children.

At most, she knew that Wei Keli was a member of the Wei family, so clinging to him had advantages.

But she clearly hadn’t considered what good she could bring upon Wei Keli.

Even if Wei Keli was really coaxed by Yuan Keqing, Li Xiangrong wasn’t foolish.

“Let them come in.” Xu Mingzhen’s voice was cold, and she was a little disappointed with her sister. They had just talked about Yuan Keqing crashing a party.

“Would it be alright?” Auntie Guo hesitated.

“They’re already at the door. It would be rude of us to not let them in.” Xu Mingzhen couldn’t help but sneer.

Since Yuan Keqing loved to take Tan Mo’s leftovers, then she would let her.

“Open the door,” Xu Mingzhen instructed.

Auntie Guo did what she was told.

Xu Mingjing came in with Yuan Keqing and glanced at the entrance. She noticed the guests’ shoes, a pair of ladies’ sandals and a pair of small sandals next to it.

Because the host’s shoes were all placed in the shoe cabinet, she could tell that there were visitors when they were led in the hallway.

Xu Mingjing smiled as if she hadn’t seen it. “I thought you weren’t at home just now, and I was planning to take Keqing away.”

Xu Mingzhen replied, “I was in the living room, and Auntie Guo was also preparing in the kitchen. That’s why it took her some time to get to the door.”

“But why did you suddenly come here today?” Xu Mingzhen asked, acting curious.

“Isn’t school starting soon? I brought Keqing over to see Mo Mo.” Xu Mingjing smiled.

“Come in,” Xu Mingzhen said.

Auntie Guo took out the slippers for the guests to put on.

Xu Mingjing led Yuan Keqing into the living room, and she saw Li Xiangrong and Wei Keli were there as well.

Xu Mingjing said embarrassedly, “Sister, I didn’t know you had guests.”

When Li Xiangrong saw Yuan Keqing, her mood soured, but could only feign politeness.

She wondered why Yuan Keqing was so clingy.

“I didn’t know your sister’s family was coming.” Li Xiangrong stood up. “How about I take Keli and go?”

“What are you talking about? We have already agreed that we would spend the day together.” Xu Mingzhen’s words implied that Xu Mingjing was crashing their bonding time.

Li Xiangrong’s visit was already agreed upon.

Xu Mingjing’s wasn’t. She just showed up without notice.

Feeling that Xu Mingzhen seemed to have changed, Xu Mingjing lowered her head uncomfortably.

She didn’t treat her like she used to.

Was it because of Yuan Zhengwen and Yuan Keqing?

“Sorry, I brought Keqing without giving notice. We’ll visit some other time.” Xu Mingjing pretended to take Yuan Keqing away.

Tan Mo really wanted to see if Xu Mingjing would actually leave if no one stopped her.

Based on Tan Mo’s assessment, her aunt was also a green tea, and her level was much higher than Qin Murong.

Xu Mingzhen was generous. Plus, she was also the older sister. It was possible that she didn’t notice it.

In her maternal family, she didn’t know how many grievances Xu Mingjing had suffered.

Tan Mo pouted. As an expert on green tea, she didn’t misjudge her.

“Since you’re here, stay. Why leave?” Xu Mingzhen pulled Xu Mingjing over. “Sit down.”

Xu Mingjing heaved a sigh of relief.

Her sister hadn’t changed.

Seeing that Xu Mingjing looked good, Xu Mingzhen asked, “How has your family been recently? Is everything going well? Is Zhengwen’s job going well?”

“Very good. Everything is going fine.” Xu Mingjing hesitated for a while, then continued, “Zhengwen kept in touch with some clients. They are on good terms. There is a lot of work to do. But…will my brother-in-law be upset? After all, they are Tanyue’s clients.”

“It’s nothing.” Xu Mingzhen knew long ago. Yuan Zhengwen’s small actions didn’t escape Tan Wenci’s eyes. However, what kind of clients could Yuan Zhengwen has remained in contact with from his job?

But that wasn’t important.

“It’s not in conflict with our business. Besides, if the other party has one more business to do, it’s a happy thing for everyone,” Xu Mingzhen said with a smile.

Xu Mingjing breathed a sigh of relief. “It’s fine if it doesn’t affect you.”

“If it affects us, will my uncle stop doing it?” Tan Mo chimed in.

“Huh?” Xu Mingjing didn’t know how to respond to this. She was silent for a while.

Tan Mo laughed. “I’m talking nonsense. Even if my uncle does that, you won’t agree with him. I’m sure.”

Tan Mo picked up her hot cocoa with a smile and blew a few breaths before taking a sip.

But Tan Mo’s words aroused something in Xu Mingzhen.

Xu Mingjing’s reaction just now wasn’t like what Tan Mo had said.

This planted apprehensions in her heart.

Where would Xu Mingjing stand?

“That’s right.” Seeing that Xu Mingzhen’s facial expression wasn’t pleasant, Xu Mingjing hurriedly changed the subject. “I brought Keqing over today after receiving Keqing’s notice of admission.”

“Oh?” Li Xiangrong glanced at Yuan Keqing.
