Yan Yan thought Ji Juechuan wasn’t listening to their chat, but he didn’t expect him to notice what he said and ask him if he liked it.
He froze for a moment, fearing that Ji Juechuan would arrange it for him immediately, so he quickly shook his head: “I don’t really like it either.”
Ji Juechuan turned his head back again, as if he was only interested in what he just said.
Ni Ningfu bent her lips and smiled, “It’s better to decide as soon as possible, otherwise your uncle will blame Juechuan for not paying attention.”
Although Yan Yan didn’t want to continue this topic, he could only nod along with her words, “We will decide as soon as possible.”
After finishing speaking, he felt that Ji Juechuan seemed to look at him again.
Fortunately, the lounge arrived soon, and Yan Yan said a few words to Ni Ningfu in the lounge, and then left the lounge with Ji Juechuan.
“Why do you seem to be relieved.” Ji Juechuan said lightly.
Yan Yan felt a little guilty, so he could only look down at the floor, “This is the first time I met my aunt, and you didn’t talk to my aunt, so I was a bit nervous.”
After he finished speaking, Ji Juechuan didn’t reply.
Yan Yan glanced at him secretly, saw that there was no expression on his face, and suddenly remembered that the relationship between Ji Juechuan and his stepmother seemed not to be very good.
He immediately regretted what he had just said and whispered: “I’m sorry”.
“It’s okay.” Ji Juechuan didn’t look at him, “My relationship with her is not as bad as you think.”
Yan Yan blinked in confusion, “But I don’t think you ever talked to her.”
At the beginning, seeing the atmosphere between Ni Ningfu and Ji Juechuan, he imagined a big scene, but looking at Ni Ningfu’s gentle temperament, he couldn’t imagine something like that happening between them.
But Yan Yan didn’t intend to ask Ji Juechuan, after all, it was a family matter, and he didn’t think Ji Juechuan would tell him these things.
Unexpectedly, Ji Juechuan paused and explained to him: “I had conflicts with her when I was young, and I didn’t go home often when I grew up, so I don’t know her very well, thus I didn’t have much to say.”
Hearing his explanation, Yan Yan froze for a moment, then nodded, “That’s it.”
Ji Juechuan took his hand and returned to the hall.
There was still more than an hour before the engagement banquet started, and the guests were almost here. As soon as Ji Juechuan and Yan Yan appeared in the hall, everyone’s eyes fell on them.
Yan Yan looked around but did not see Mrs. Yan and the others.
He was a little worried, and wanted to make a call to ask Mrs. Yan, but when he touched his pocket, he remembered that he had left his phone on the sofa in the lounge.
The guests had been paying attention to the two of them, and now seeing Yan Yan looking around, they immediately had many guesses.
They heard many versions of the rumors, but all of them said that Yan Yan liked to cause trouble and was disliked by the Yan family.
Just now when they saw Yan Yan obediently following Ji Juechuan and greeting Mr. Ji, they thought those rumors were wrong, but now seeing that the engagement banquet was about to start and Yan family members were not present, they started believing those rumors again.
They didn’t know why Ji Juechuan chose this person whom even the Yan family didn’t want.
Was it just because of that outstanding face?
“I heard that Yan Yueluo will come today, is it true?” Several young people whispered in a corner, and one of them asked his companion with bright eyes.
“Tch, what are you thinking.” One of the better-looking young men gave him a disdainful look, “Yan Yueluo is currently preparing for a concert abroad, how could he come here?”
“That’s right, I don’t think anyone from Yan family is here, let alone Yan Yueluo.”
“By the way, Xiao Qing, aren’t you also in the circle? Is there a way to get tickets for Yan Yueluo’s concert?”
As soon as this was mentioned, several young people surrounded the better-looking young man, chattering about the experience of not getting a ticket despite their connections.
The young person who was singled out felt triumphant and played tricks.
Although he couldn’t get tickets, he enjoyed the feeling of being noticed, bypassing the topic of tickets, he talked about his time with Yan Yueluo on the same stage.
Over there, Yan Yan didn’t touch his phone, so he looked anxiously at the door.
Ji Juechuan squeezed his hand reassuringly. Just as he was about to call Mrs. Yan, there was movement at the entrance of the hall.
Yan Yan heard a few small exclamations, and when he turned his head, he saw Yan Yueluo walking towards them, followed by a man in black, who seemed to be a bodyguard.
His eyes lit up and he called out “Brother”.
Yan Yueluo nodded slightly, “I just arrived in City A this morning, so I’m late.”
He had no makeup on his face, and his eyes were slightly black and blue, but his face was still handsome and compelling, attracting many people to secretly look at him.
Yan Yan quickly shook his head, “It’s okay, the engagement banquet hasn’t started yet.”
Yan Yueluo gave a soft “um”, he remembered the discussion he had just heard when he came in, and his eyes glanced around coldly.
“Mom was a little motion sick on the road. The car stopped for a while and should be here soon.” Yan Yueluo said, “She said she called you, but you didn’t answer.”
“I don’t have my phone with me.” Yan Yan apologized a little, “Then I’ll pick her up at the door, and I’ll take her to rest later.”
After finishing speaking, Yan Yan noticed that many people were looking at them.
Although the guests who came were all from the two families, Yan Yan was still worried that it would affect Yan Yueluo, so he asked him in a low voice if he wanted to go to the lounge first, and then come out after the engagement banquet started.
The young people in those corners were cautiously approaching Yan Yueluo’s position now. They pushed the young man who claimed to have shared the stage with Yan Yueluo and wanted him to say a few words to Yan Yueluo.
Sensing someone approaching, Yan Yueluo turned his head and glanced at them, then he nodded, “Let’s go to the lounge first.”
He didn’t give those young people a look, he just turned around and left with the bodyguards behind him.
Several young people watched his back go away, and pushed the man in the middle in disappointment, “Xiao Qing, didn’t you say that you were on the same stage with Yan Yueluo? Why didn’t he say hello to you?”
Xiao Qing blushed, “Maybe he forgot.”
The young people walked away disappointed and went to find their mothers.
Yan Yan went back to the lounge to get his mobile phone, called Mrs. Yan back, and then went to pick up Mrs. Yan at the door.
Ji Juechuan didn’t say anything but went to the door with him.
They didn’t wait long when they saw Mrs. Yan and a man walking in.
It was the first time that Yan Yan saw the original owner’s father after his transmigration, but he quickly came to his senses and greeted the two of them.
Compared with him, Ji Juechuan was much calmer when he met his parents.
After greeting Father and Mother Yan, he took the initiative to care for Mrs. Yan, and then led them into the hall himself.
Yan Yan took a few more glances at Ji Juechuan.
Why did it feel like Ji Juechuan cared more about his parents than his own?
After Yan Yueluo and Yan parents arrived, no one talked about the fact that Yan Yan was not taken seriously in the Yan family.
The guests in the hall chatted happily and the atmosphere was pleasant, and soon it was time for the engagement ceremony to begin.
As the master of ceremonies announced, the guests also took their seats, waiting with great anticipation for the protagonists to enter.
Although he had watched the process of the engagement ceremony countless times, Yan Yan couldn’t help but get nervous when he heard the master of ceremonies’ voice.
He secretly glanced at the guests in the hall and became even more nervous.
All these people came to attend the engagement banquet between him and Ji Juechuan.
He and Ji Juechuan were actually going to get engaged.
Even though he knew in his heart that this was just an engagement banquet for others to see, he still couldn’t help his heart beating faster and his palms sweating.
He saw that Ji Juechuan’s expression was still as calm as usual, but he didn’t know why he was holding his hand tighter and tighter, as if he was afraid that he would run away.
Sensing his nervousness, Ji Juechuan moved his hand and took out a candy out of nowhere.
Yan Yan looked at the beautifully packaged candy in his palm and shook his head.
“It will take about an hour before we can eat.”
Hearing this sentence, Yan Yan hesitated for a moment, but still took the candy, peeled off the candy wrapper and put it in his mouth.
After eating the sugar, he seemed less nervous.
It just so happened that the warm-up session of the master of ceremonies was over, and it was time for them to enter the venue.
Accompanied by the melodious music and the emcee’s voice, Ji Juechuan took Yan Yan’s hand and walked in front of everyone.
Yan Yan had memorized the process of the engagement ceremony by heart, and with the emcee’s lines, even though the process was a bit cumbersome, it was still very smooth.
Except when Ji Juechuan put the ring on him, he was in a trance for a moment.
The hand that Ji Juechuan put the ring on felt a little hot, even his skin felt hot, but the ring was cold and hard to the touch, which was extraordinarily clear.
He raised his eyes to look at Ji Juechuan and found that Ji Juechuan was also staring at him.
He didn’t know if it was the effect of the lighting, but he saw that there seemed to be light in those black eyes.
Yan Yan remembered that Ji Juechuan said a few days ago that he wanted to put on a show at the engagement banquet, and immediately admired Ji Juechuan’s acting skills.
Not to be outdone, he looked at Ji Juechuan affectionately for a while before looking away.
The pair of beautiful people under the light were eye-catching, whether it was from the Yan family or the Ji family, when they saw the two standing together, they couldn’t help sighing that they were a good match.
When the ceremony was about to end, Yan Yan suddenly remembered that at home a few days ago, Ji Juechuan said that he wanted to practice kissing so that he could show others at the engagement banquet.
But now half of the engagement banquet was over, and Ji Juechuan hadn’t kissed him yet.
Did he want to wait until the banquet started to kiss again?
He was surprised, but he didn’t ask Ji Juechuan.
After the engagement process was successfully concluded, the banquet officially began.
Ji Juechuan led Yan Yan off the stage, went to toast with the elders at the tables in front, and said some polite words.
After waiting for the next few tables, the tables were filled with people of the same age.
Sitting at a table were Ji Juechuan’s cousins, who had been sent to serve as soldiers for a few years by their family and were incompatible with the temperament of the other people in the hall.
It hadn’t been long since the banquet started, and most of the wine on the table had already been drunk.
Seeing Ji Juechuan and Yan Yan coming over, they first congratulated Ji Juechuan, and then they began to speak without restraint.
“You haven’t received the certificate yet? Ji Juechuan, with such a beautiful wife, aren’t you afraid of him running away?”
Hearing his frivolous tone, Yan Yan glanced at Ji Juechuan subconsciously, but saw his thin lips were pursed, as he looked sideways at him.
