When Ji Tiancheng and Gao Ruxuan walked towards the lounge, they were seen by several passing staff.

They didn’t dare to stop the guests casually, but felt that something was inappropriate, so they went to the lobby to inform Ji Juechuan immediately.

The guests in the hall only saw Ji Juechuan frowning instantly, his eyes turned cold, and then he turned and left the hall.

Although the hearts of the guests were eager to gossip but no one dared to follow him, they could only whisper with the people around them.

They had all heard about Yan Yan’s past deeds, and even if they didn’t know, they all found out after receiving Ji Juechuan’s invitation to the engagement banquet.

Seeing Ji Juechuan’s expression now, they all speculated whether that young master Yan might have caused some trouble again.

With the mentality of watching a good show, they stretched their necks in the direction of Ji Juechuan’s departure, waiting for the engagement banquet to start with full expectation.

In the lounge, the heavy atmosphere was completely different from the hall.

Ji Juechuan stood in front of Yan Yan, and when he heard his suppressed cough, his eyes became colder and colder.

He remembered that Yan Yan was very sensitive to the smell of smoke. The last time he smelled a little smoke, it made Yan Yan change his face instantly and stay away from him.

Now Ji Tiancheng was not only smoking in front of Yan Yan, but also so close, one could imagine how uncomfortable Yan Yan must be.

He couldn’t control the violence in his heart.

Ji Juechuan was half a head taller than Ji Tiancheng, his eyes drooped slightly, and the coercion in his black eyes made Ji Tiancheng a little breathless.

After hearing the news, Lu Ji also rushed over. As soon as he reached the door of the lounge, he saw this scene.

Seeing the expression on Ji Juechuan’s face, he was startled, knowing that Ji Juechuan was really angry.

He hurried to the middle of the two, and looked at Ji Tiancheng: “Ji Ershao, smoking is not allowed here, I will take you to the smoking room.”

After speaking, he made a gesture of invitation to the door, wanting to take him away quickly.

Originally, he could go down the ladder given by Lu Ji, but when Ji Tiancheng saw an outsider coming, he felt that he would be being overwhelmed by Ji Juechuan if he left now.

He poked his neck, “Isn’t this the lounge? We want to rest here, can’t we?”

Lu Ji showed a standard smile, “If you want to rest, I can take you to the guest lounge.”

Ji Tiancheng had already seen that this was a lounge for the owner, but he still stared, “This is so spacious, can’t it accommodate the two of us?”

“Or is it because Mr. Ji can’t tolerate us?”

Yan Yan didn’t expect these two people to be so aggressive. He poked his head out from behind Ji Juechuan and took a look, thinking that he should just change places.

Anyway, there was still a bit of cigarette smell left in the lounge, and he didn’t feel comfortable staying there.

And if the matter became a big deal, it would not have a good impact on Ji Juechuan, after all, these two people were still members of the Ji family.

Unexpectedly, in the next second, Ji Juechuan said in a deep voice, “Lu Ji, call the security guard over.”

Ji Tiancheng’s face changed suddenly and his face was full of disbelief: “Ji Juechuan, our parents will come over later, you dare to drive us out?”

Ji Juechuan didn’t speak, just looked at him quietly with a pair of black eyes that seemed to be frozen with frost.

With just one glance, Ji Tiancheng understood what he meant.

If they didn’t leave here again, Ji Juechuan would really drive them out.

Gao Ruxuan’s legs went weak from that look, so she pulled La Ji Tiancheng’s arm, and smiled reluctantly at Lu Ji: “Please take us there.”

Although Ji Tiancheng was not reconciled, he still snorted and left with Lu Ji.

Before they went out, they heard a soft voice behind them, sounding coquettish or complaining.

“Husband, do I smell of cigarettes?”

Ji Tiancheng and the two froze for a moment and looked back.

The young man who had been alienated and polite in front of the two of them just now had thrown himself into Ji Juechuan’s arms, his eyelashes like crow’s feathers were raised, and his delicate eyebrows and eyes were full of grievances.

The frost in Ji Juechuan’s eyes melted instantly, and his voice was low, as if coaxing, “There is no smell of smoke, it is very fragrant.”

The two froze at the door.

They had never seen Ji Juechuan like this before, if they hadn’t seen this scene, they would have thought Ji Juechuan was a person without feelings.

Ji Tiancheng remembered what he said just now, saying that Ji Juechuan kept covering it up because he was afraid that others would know that he was engaged to a trash.

But now it seemed that Ji Juechuan was very happy with this engagement.

Lu Ji glanced into the lounge and reminded again: “The guest’s lounge is here, you two come with me.”

Hearing this sound, the two came back to their senses and followed him out of the lounge.

Although Ji Juechuan said that he didn’t smell of smoke, Yan Yan was still a little worried. He wrinkled his nose and smelled it on himself, and then grabbed Ji Juechuan’s clothes to smell it.

Ji Juechuan watched him sniff it amusedly, and only after he finished sniffing, did he ask, “Do you want to rest somewhere else?”

“No, I’ll go out with you.”

Yan Yan thought that people from the Yan family should also be here at this time, he couldn’t hide in the lounge all the time, and he should go out and say hello to the guests.

“Okay.” Ji Juechuan took his hand and left the lounge, walking towards the hall.

Halfway there, Ji Juechuan suddenly asked, “What did they tell you?”

Yan Yan didn’t expect him to ask this suddenly, so he thought for a while before telling him: “They asked if you mentioned them to me, and said…”

He paused for a moment before continuing: “Also, you may have forgotten that you are from the Ji family.”

Ji Juechuan didn’t react when he heard this sentence, and his face was still calm, “Well, they didn’t say anything about you, did they?”


Ji Juechuan came just in time, the two people said a few words, and Ji Juechuan arrived.

Hearing that he said no, Ji Juechuan’s face relaxed a little.

When the two walked to the hall, they saw many people standing at the entrance of the hall, as if they were greeting someone.

Ji Juechuan was taller than everyone in the hall. He took a closer look and told Yan Yan, “My dad is here.”

After finishing speaking, he felt that the hand holding Yan Yan was suddenly grasped tightly.

He turned his head and saw Yan Yan’s rosy lips were tightly pursed, and his eyes were staring at the front without blinking, as if he was very nervous.

“Don’t be nervous.”

Ji Juechuan held his hand in his palm and led him to the door of the hall.

Seeing them coming, the people gathered at the door automatically made way for them, and all eyes fell on them instantly.

Yan Yan saw a man and a woman standing at the door. The man looked very old, but his back was straight, his eyes were bright, and he had an air of calm and prestige.

Standing beside him was a younger woman with gentle eyebrows and a smile on her lips, which made people feel good.

Ji Juechuan nodded to the man first, “Dad.”

Then greeted the woman with the same polite tone, “Auntie.”

Yan Yan blinked nervously, and stood beside Ji Juechuan with a smile, “Hello, Uncle and Aunt.”

Ji Pengfu originally had a straight face and wanted to blame Ji Juechuan for holding the engagement banquet too suddenly, making others think that he didn’t care about the Yan family, but when he saw Yan Yan, his expression softened a lot in an instant.

He knew that his usual appearance was a bit bluffing, so he purposely calmed down again, in order not to scare this child who was as transparent as glass.

“Xiao Yan, I heard that you and Juechuan are already living together, is he treating you well?”

“He is very kind to me.” Seeing Ji Pengfu’s stern look just now, Yan Yan nodded quickly, not daring to answer slowly.

“That’s good. Juechuan is not sensible. The engagement banquet this time is too childish. Let him make it up for you after the wedding.” When Ji Pengfu said this, he glanced at Ji Juechuan next to him, as if telling him to listen.

It was the first time Yan Yan heard someone say that Ji Juechuan was ignorant, so he turned his head to look at Ji Juechuan, feeling a little strange.

There was no displeasure on Ji Juechuan’s face, he just nodded, “Got it.”

Only then was Ji Pengfu satisfied, and he looked at Yan Yan again.

He knew that Yan Yan was a child that the Yan family had just found recently, and he had heard some of those rumors, but seeing it with his own eyes today, he felt that this child was completely different from what he had imagined.

Just as he was about to say a few more words to Yan Yan, another guest came in from outside.

The guest was a close relative of Ji Pengfu. The two hadn’t seen each other for a long time, so they started chatting after saying hello.

Ji Pengfu talked to Ji Juechuan and Yan Yan, then chatted with the guest and left, leaving only the three of them standing in place.

Yan Yan saw that the relationship between Ji Juechuan and the woman was not very close, but it was not good to leave like this, so he smiled at the woman, “Auntie, let me take you to rest for a while.”

“Okay.” Ni Ningfu pursed her lips and smiled and followed them out of the hall.

Ji Juechuan didn’t speak, so Yan Yan had to find a topic by himself.

“Auntie, was the journey well today?”

Ni Ningfu still had a smile on her face, as she nodded, “Successful, this place is easy to find, and there were no cars on the road.”

Yan Yan felt that Ji Juechuan’s stepmother seemed easier to get along with than he imagined, and when he was about to say something, Ji Juechuan ripped off his hand.

“Do you know the way?”

He froze for a moment and looked around.

Just now when he came out of the lounge to the hall, Ji Juechuan took him there, and he didn’t remember the way, so he didn’t know where he was now.

Seeing his bewildered look, the corners of Ji Juechuan’s mouth curled up a little, “How dare you walk without knowing the way.”

Yan Yan bit his lip, a little unconvinced, but he really didn’t know where to go.

He could only hold Ji Juechuan’s hand, and raise his long eyelashes slightly, “Then you lead the way.”

It was obviously a sentence that was not convinced and had to be softened, but he said it as if he was coquettish.

Ji Juechuan felt his palms itch a little, so he wrapped his whole hand in his palms and led him to the other side.

Ni Ningfu looked at the interaction between the two with surprise in her eyes, but quickly regained her composure.

Yan Yan took Ji Juechuan’s hand and continued to talk with Ni Ningfu.

Halfway through the talk, he heard Ni Ningfu suddenly ask: “Have you decided where to hold the wedding yet?”

Yan Yan moved his fingers, his eyes flickered, and he shook his head: “Not yet.”

“I attended a friend’s wedding some time ago. They were held in a Japanese-style courtyard. Look.” Ni Ningfu took out her phone and showed him some photos.

The Japanese-style garden in the photo was full of cherry blossom trees. The wedding happened to be held when the cherry blossoms were in full bloom. The pink screen was like a fairyland.

Yan Yan looked at it for a while and felt a little moved.

But he quickly shook his head in his heart and woke up.

What wedding, it did not exist.

Seeing his bright eyes, Ni Ningfu smiled, “But it is said that the maple leaves in autumn are even more beautiful.”

In autumn, wasn’t it only two or three months?

Yan Yan blinked, “The cherry blossoms in spring are more beautiful.”

Hearing that he said it looked good, Ji Juechuan turned his head and glanced at it, and asked him, “Do you like it?”
