Chapter 790: Wei Ling and the Others Are Stopped Outside
Despite saying that, he subconsciously tugged at his collar again to maintain his best appearance.
Ye Lan saw that he couldn’t help but tidy up his clothes and smiled. She did not expose him.
She followed his words and said, “Yes, yes, yes. Don’t be nervous. I’m nervous, okay?”
“Speaking of which, I haven’t seen Nian Nian in a long time. I really miss her.”
Old Master Ye glanced at her and did not say anything.
It had been a long time since she last saw her, but what about him? He had never seen her before at all. This was the first time they were meeting! Speaking of which, it was all his unfilial grandson’s fault!
Old Master Ye recalled. “By the way, have you booked a place to eat?”
Ye Lan placed her hands on his shoulders and said in amusement and anger, “How could I not? Don’t worry, I’ve booked the entire venue for you.”
“Where are we eating?”
Ye Lan’s gaze was gentle as she smiled and said, “The Imperial Mansion. Wangchuan said that Nian Nian was afraid that you wouldn’t be used to eating heavy-flavored dishes, so he specially chose the Imperial Mansion. The dishes there are light-flavored and more suitable for people your age.”
“At my age, I can eat anything. There’s no need for her to make things my preference…” Although he said that, he couldn’t help but smile. It was obvious that he was happy inside and was only pretending to argue.
At the Imperial Mansion.
At this moment, Qiao Chen was following behind Wei Ling as they walked in.
She had returned to Beijing half a month ago. After staying in Beijing for a few days, she followed Steven overseas to participate in a competition.
She had just returned the day before yesterday and had even brought back the gold award from the competition.
Before long, Wei Ling would spread this news to the domestic media to help her build momentum.
When she returned this time, her aura had improved a lot. She had also seen a lot of the world with Steven and was much more mature.
Wei Ling invited many friends in the circle to dinner this time, and she also wanted to introduce her to the people in the upper circles.
Qiao Chen knew very well, but she was not as happy as she was in the past.
Even if she was happy, she kept her eyes closed and did not show so much emotion.
“President Wei, this… It might be inconvenient today. Someone booked the entire place.”
Qiao Chen was in a daze as she thought about something. When she came back to her senses, she heard the manager and the others talking to Wei Ling. She looked up in surprise, her eyes filled with shock.
Booked the entire venue?
Who had the ability to book the entire Imperial Mansion?
‘The Imperial Mansion wasn’t an ordinary place. Usually, it was difficult to book a room, let alone the whole place.
This was not something that money could do.
Many people in Beijing did not lack money. Furthermore, everyone knew that the boss behind the Imperial Mansion had a deep background. Who could book the entire place?
Wei Ling had the same reaction. She was stunned for a moment. “You said someone booked the entire place? Who is it?”
“Well…” The manager glanced at her and was polite, but he did not say a word. “It’s not convenient for us to disclose this.”
‘There was always someone stronger in Beijing.
Even if Wei Ling was unhappy, she couldn’t say anything. Compromising, she said, “We’re already here. You can’t let us leave empty-handed. How about this? We don’t want a private room anymore. Can you arrange a seat in the hall for us?”
Elder Wei had been saved from the gates of hell. With him around, the Wei family’s status in Beijing remained the same.
She did not expect the manager to reject her.
“Tm sorry. The Imperial Mansion has been booked for the entire day. Not even the hall is available. President Wei, why don’t you come another day?”
