“Why did she get a hooligan as her boyfriend? Is she love-crazed?”
“What a pity. It’s a waste of her talent.”
Someone even whispered, “The Xue family doesn’t have a son. Could it be that they are planning to find someone to marry into their family?”
For most people born to a wealthy family, marriage was the final home. Marriage and benefits were inseparable. Hence, they could not understand why Xue Xi would have a hooligan for a boyfriend.
Someone even kindly advised Ye Li, “Madam Xue, I’m a more straightforward person and I’m doing this for your own good. The child is still young. Is she being bewitched? You can’t let her do whatever she wants!”
Faced with this kind reminder, Ye Li maintained her polite smile.
However, she defended Xue Xi. “Our family has no intention of forcing Xixi to get married. After all, we have a lot of things to make up to her for, and I also believe that she knows what she wants.”
At first, Ye Li did not agree with this relationship, but Xue Xi was too engrossed in her studies and could not extricate herself from it. Ye Li could not imagine her daughter dating.
What if I screw this up and my daughter doesn’t ever get married?
The other party stopped speaking after hearing her words.
Given everyone else’s upbringing, they would not continue to mock her in front of her face. Only Xu Fang and Liu Yiqiu were relentless.
Xu Fang pouted. “Ye Li, you’re spoiling the child too much.”
Liu Yiqiu smiled and said, “Sister-in-law always feels like she owes her. In my opinion, it’s very important to have a proper family. Otherwise, we won’t have a common language in the future.”
Xu Fang pouted. “That reminds me. Didn’t Xue Xi grow up in an orphanage? She probably has something in common with such a boyfriend!”
Ye Li was furious. “What do you mean?”
Just as Xu Fang was about to speak, Xue Xi, who had been staring at the phone, suddenly put down the phone. She shook Ye Li’s arm. “Mom, don’t be angry anymore.”
Ye Li was stunned.
Xu Fang also smiled. “I was just saying it casually. Look at your mother’s manners. It’s not even as good as your daughter’s!”
Xue Xi turned to look at her with misty eyes. Xu Fang paused when she saw this.
After two seconds, Xue Xi slowly said, “After being bitten by a dog, one can’t possibly be angry with the dog, right? It doesn’t know human etiquette.”
Xu Fang: “?”
Just as she was about to flare up, she heard Xue Xi say slowly, “I didn’t mean anything by that. Don’t tell me that someone is acting up on their own?”
Xu Fang: “!!!”
She was at a loss for words. How could she swallow her anger without saying anything?
Just then, the servant from the Gao family walked over. “Mrs. Li, Mr. Lu is already here and is talking to Sir upstairs. Mr. Gao wants Ms. Li to go upstairs to meet him.”
Xu Fang, who had been rendered speechless by Xue Xi’s words, raised her chin and smiled. “Alright, I’ll bring Xinyan upstairs now.”
She stood up and tidied her clothes before turning to look at Ye Li. Her words were getting more and more vicious. “d.a.m.n, your daughter is outstanding. If she didn’t have a boyfriend, Elder Gao would definitely introduce her to him. What a pity. I heard that Mr. Lu is a talented person and has a mild temper. Some hooligans don’t even deserve to carry his shoes!”
With that, she left arrogantly.

After Xu Fang left, the rest gathered together and sighed in envy at Xu Fang and Li Xinyan’s back. “It’s a pity that my daughter is not as outstanding as Li Xinyan.”
Helpless, Xue Xi could only put down her phone and walk over.
Qin Shuang, who was wearing a red dress today, brought her to the other balcony.
There were two sofas and some snacks on the coffee table. Although they were isolated from the living room, they could still see it in its entirety.
The members of the Roaring Flame Society were all sitting there. Flame Number One was holding a suit while Gao Yanchen was playing with his phone, looking distracted.
Qin Shuang asked, “Sister Xi, where’s your boyfriend?”
Xue Xi paused. “Mhm?”
Qin Shuang said, “Brother Chen gave him an invitation, but we haven’t seen him. This is the suit Brother Chen prepared for him. We’ll have him change into it when he comes, lest he embarra.s.ses you. Can you take a look?”
Xue Xi was stunned again. Xiang Huai is coming?
While she was in a daze, Flame Number One opened his mouth and said, “Brother Chen, although this is also a Jenia suit, didn’t you say that you wanted to buy their store’s treasure in order to save Sister Xi’s face?”
Jania was a luxury suit brand. In a branch store in Bin City, there was a suit made by a top designer as the treasure of the store. It was usually not taken out.
Gao Yanchen’s almond-shaped eyes were filled with displeasure. “They said that they were bought by someone later.”
Qin Shuang’s gossipy heart was instantly ignited. “Who is it?”
Gao Yanchen thought for a moment and said affirmatively, “It should be Lu Chao.”
Tonight was Elder Gao’s birthday party. Everyone in Bin City would give him face and leave the best suit for him. Since it was s.n.a.t.c.hed away, it must be by the distinguished guest, Lu Chao.
Qin Shuang asked curiously, “Brother Chen, since we have nothing to do now, why don’t you bring us upstairs to meet that Lu Chao?”
