I’m 8 Million Poor
I’m 8 Million Poor Chapter 69

Shui Lan’er and Chu Yunhan had been sitting relatively far from Ji Chen. The rest of the Gu family weren’t all idiots. They naturally knew about the little quarrel between Chu Yunhan and Jiang Baiwan, plus the previous conversation between Shui Lan’er and Jiang Baiwan was heard by some people. The members of the Gu family simply separated Shui Lan’er and Chu Yunhan away—— To offend Haochen Group, the Chu family probably wouldn’t have any good results.

Although Shui Lan’er was sitting far away, she was always paying attention to Jiang Baiwan. She first saw Jiang Baiwan talking and laughing happily with another man, then went dancing with said man, but Ji Chen, the president of Haochen Group, had no change of expression on his face and seemed to be calm. Shui Lan’ers eyes widened in surprise—— What was Ji Chen thinking? Why could he tolerate Jiang Baiwan doing this? Shouldn’t love be exclusive?

However, Ji Chen was still not as angry as she had imagined. When Jiang Baiwan sat back beside Ji Chen, the two even smiled at each other, obviously looking happy. Shui Lan’er could hardly believe her eyes. This was beyond her comprehension. Why wasn’t Ji Chen restraining Jiang Baiwan’s behavior?

When she saw Jiang Baiwan carrying something and walking towards her, Shui Lan’er scrambled to turn her head and hide her face—— No, Jiang Baiwan must not find out that she was spying on her.

But Jiang Baiwan got closer and closer to her. Soon, she walked up to Shui Lan’er and sat down, placing the soup in her hand on the table. “I have something I want to talk to you about.”

Shui Lan’er was flattered. She secretly glanced at Jiang Baiwan then hurriedly withdrew her eyes. Thinking of her purpose today, Shui Lan’er wanted to have a few more words with Jiang Baiwan, but she was afraid of Jiang Baiwan’s previous actions.

Chu Yunhan had just left to make toast and he hadn’t returned yet, so now only Jiang Baiwan and Shui Lan’er were at the table. Looking at Shui Lan’ers appearance, Jiang Baiwan couldn’t help but sigh. “What are you afraid of? Will I eat you?”

Shui Lan’ers lips trembled as she asked in a small voice, “What do you want to talk about?”

“It’s nothing particularly important, it’s just that……” Jiang Baiwan paused. “I’ve thought it over carefully. I don’t want to be so stiff with you all the time.”

Shui Lan’er couldn’t believe her ears. She jerked her head up to look at Jiang Baiwan with a trace of surprise in her eyes. “Really? Xiao Wan, what you said is true? You’re not lying to me?”

In haste, Shui Lan’er even grabbed Jiang Baiwan’s wrist. Jiang Baiwan retreated slightly, but Shui Lan’ers hand was so strong in her excitement that Jiang Baiwan couldn’t break free from the white lotus for a while.

She smiled awkwardly and scratched her face. “I may not have a good temper, but when have I ever told a lie?”

Shui Lan’er was moved with tears in her eyes. “Really? This…… this is really great, Xiao Wan. I really want to be friends with you again, but you never gave me a chance before. Today you finally did and I swear, from today onwards we are the best of friends. I will definitely help you with anything you need!”

Jiang Baiwan felt even more embarrassed because Shui Lan’ers voice had raised quite a bit, causing everyone around to look over at them. Gritting her teeth, Jiang Baiwan quickly held Shui Lan’ers hand. Just as she was about to open her mouth to say something, a young man’s voice came next to her, “Huh? Sister Lan’er? Sis? What are you two doing?”

Jiang Zhishu seemed to have just discovered Shui Lan’er and Jiang Baiwan, looking at them both with surprise on his face. “You also came to this banquet? I thought I was mistaken.”

Speaking, Jiang Zhishu pulled up a chair and sat down opposite the two. “Sis, you and Sister Lan’er are still so close. I knew you two would definitely make up.”

Jiang Baiwan felt that her expression might have frozen on her face as she stared at Jiang Zhishu, unable to imagine how this cheap brother of hers could appear there.

As if he could tell what Jiang Baiwan was wondering about, Jiang Zhishu smiled shyly at her. “Sister Jiying brought me here. She said that I seemed to be too bored inside the house alone, so she took me out to have fun. I’ve never been to this place before. Sister, today you looked really beautiful as you stood beside Brother-in-law.”

Ji Ying brought him here? Jiang Baiwan subconsciously searched for Ji Ying inside the venue, only to see her surrounded by a bunch of handsome guys, holding a glass of champagne and clearly looking like she was enjoying herself.

Jiang Baiwan: “……”

Speaking of Jiang Baiwan and Ji Chen’s matter, Shui Lan’er, a friend fresh out of the oven, thought of the scene she saw when she was watching Jiang Baiwan just now. She quickly grabbed Jiang Baiwan’s hand and said to her with a serious expression, “Xiao Wan, who was that man you were dancing with just now? Why does it seem like I’ve never seen him before?”

Jiang Baiwan didn’t know why the topic suddenly turned to Luo Xiao, but she just went along with it. “He’s a friend I met recently. What’s the matter?”

“Xiao Wan, you should not get too close to him.” Shui Lan’er said in earnest. “I see that President Ji treats you very well, and as his girlfriend, you have to be loyal to Ji Chen.”

Jiang Baiwan wanted to open Shui Lan’ers brain to see what was inside——From what standpoint was she able to say these words?

Shui Lan’er suddenly became wise at this time. Her eyes were extremely serious as she held Jiang Baiwan’s hand. “Ji Chen is such a good boyfriend, Xiao Wan, you should cherish him.”

Jiang Baiwan felt that Shui Lan’er was particularly like the auntie in the house next door right now. Just as she wanted to say something, she saw Jiang Zhishu quickly switched the soup in front of her with Shui Lan’ers. Because Shui Lan’er was focused on talking to Jiang Baiwan with her back turned to Jiang Zhishu, she didn’t see his movements at all. Jiang Zhishu did all this swiftly and steadily, changing the place of the two bowls of soup almost in the blink of an eye.

Jiang Baiwan’s heart suddenly trembled.

Jiang Zhishu, on the other hand, looked at his sister and showed his movements in a grand manner while blinking at her. The way he blinked was very mischievous, looking a bit shy, except that Jiang Zhishu no longer felt like the innocent and cute lad he was before in Jiang Baiwan’s mind.

I’m the one who’s innocent and cute the entire time!

Immediately, there was an added bitterness into Jiang Baiwan’s heart.

Shui Lan’er finished speaking at this time. She looked at Jiang Baiwan with a smile and inwardly thanked Jiang Zhishu—— Jiang Zhishu was right, Xiao Wan had really come to forgive her today!

Next…… just bring Xiao Wan into the room, so she and Xiao Wan can have a good talk.

Shui Lan’er smiled delicately, her eyes shining brightly. “Xiao Wan, I—”

“Huh? Sister.” Jiang Zhishu interrupted Shui Lan’er in a timely manner. “I think Brother-in-law is looking for you.”

Jiang Baiwan looked back and realized that Ji Chen wasn’t actually looking for her, but when she heard Jiang Zhishu’s words, Jiang Baiwan felt like it was a rare blessing. She let out an “Ah”, and pretended to wave at the distance. “I’ll be right there.”

Then, Jiang Baiwan said to Shui Lan’er, “Ji Chen is looking for me. I’ll go there for a while and come back later.”

Shui Lan’er watched Jiang Baiwan leave. She sighed quietly, “Xiao Wan is so in demand.”

“Sister Lan’er, you’re not bad either.” Jiang Zhishu smiled. “It’s just that my sister is a little busy because she has to accompany Brother-in-law today. Forget it, let’s eat something.”

Shui Lan’er nodded unsuspectingly before grabbing the spoon on the side and eating a few spoonfuls of soup in front of her.

Jiang Zhishu sat there and watched Shui Lan’er until he was sure that the soup was inside her stomach. Only then did Jiang Zhishu breathe a faint sigh of relief.

“Then Sister Lan’er, I’ll go first too.” Jiang Zhishu spoke to Shui Lan’er. “Sister Ji is looking for me.”

Shui Lan’er didn’t think much of it. She just nodded to Jiang Zhishu and exchanged a glance with him. Shui Lan’er was filled with gratitude that words couldn’t fully convey her feeling.

Jiang Zhishu gently shook the goose bumps on his body and walked to Ji Ying’s side. Seeing him return, Ji Ying dismissed the men surrounding her with a few words. She placed an arm around Jiang Zhishu’s neck and asked in a whisper, “How is it?”

Jiang Zhishu played dumb. “What?”

“Don’t think I don’t know.” Ji Ying rolled her eyes slightly. “What have you been plotting behind the scenes these days? So secretive?”

Jiang Zhishu smiled shyly and his fair face turned red. “I…… I haven’t done anything, but nothing can really be hidden from your eyes, Sister Ji.”

Ji Ying snorted coldly and pushed Jiang Zhishu away. “Stinky guy, still pretending with me, aren’t you? Forget it, if you don’t want to say it, then don’t. Anyway, after the banquet is over, I’ll know exactly what it is.”

Jiang Zhishu smiled silently.

Jiang Baiwan sat back beside Ji Chen, feeling that this evening was really turbulent. Something seemed to have gone off the rails somewhere she couldn’t see and was running wildly in a bizzare direction like a deranged dog with no way to turned back. She fanned herself with her hands. Her heart was pounding. “Ji Chen, why do I feel a bit hot?”

“Hmm?” Ji Chen tilted his head to look at her. “Hot? Actually, I’m also a little hot.”

Jiang Baiwan looked at Ji Chen, only to hear him whisper in her ear, “Those two hot packs are really too warm.”

Jiang Baiwan: “……”

I’m not talking about that!
