Chapter 191: What He Feared Most Was About to Happen
Qiao Mianmian was slightly stunned but quickly said, “No, no, it’s fine!”
She knew her place.
They were all good friends for over a decade, some even over two decades.
Although she was indeed married to Mo Yesi, this was her first time meeting them.
She was no more than a stranger to them, actually.
“I’ll see you next time, then.”
Shen Rou turned and left.
Gong Zeli followed behind her.
He hadn’t even said goodbye.
Qiao Mianmian felt even more pressured now…
When she turned to look at Mo Yesi, she found that he seemed to be losing his cool.
Shen Rou and Gong Zeli were already at the door.
“Hold it there.”
Mo Yesi suddenly said coldly and strictly, “Fourth Gong, if you don’t wish to come in the future, then don’t. Also, have you even greeted your Sis-in-law since you saw her just now? She’s my wife, that makes her your sister-in-law.
“If you don’t wish to acknowledge her as your Sis-in-law, then you can forget about calling me Second Bro as well.
“I won’t have a brother like you.”
Mo Yesi’s words made the atmosphere tenser and colder than ever.
For a moment, nobody said a thing.
It was so silent, it seemed like everyone vanished.
Gong Zeli was already at the door.
He had his back towards them, but they could see him clench his fist.
Yan Shaoqing was cursing in his heart, his brows furrowed.
Damn it, what he feared most was about to happen.
He knew that Gong Zeli’s attitude today would definitely set Second Bro off.
Even if he was doing this to protect Shen Rou, it was too much.
Didn’t he know what Second Bro was like?
He was definitely going to defend his girl!
Just this meal alone was enough for Yan Shaoqing to understand the sort of value Mo Yesi held Qiao Mianmian to.
That was the sort of care and concern a man had for a woman.
How could he tolerate others’ disrespect for a girl he valued this much?
He wouldn’t take it lying down, even if it was his close buddy!
“Second Bro, Fourth Bro is just…” Yan Shaoqing wanted to mediate the situation.
But Mo Yesi quickly shut him off with his cold voice. “It’s none of your business, you’d best keep quiet.”
Yan Shaoqing was speechless.
He turned around, saw Mo Yesi’s expressionless look, and felt a chill down his spine. He dared not say more.
Second Bro was known for his bad temper.
But he actually seldom lost his cool.
However, the few times he did was enough to leave a lasting impression.
If he really was angry, Yan Shaoqing wouldn’t dare provoke him further.
Seeing Gong Zeli’s tense back view, Yan Shaoqing could only pray for him. He prayed that there was room for this situation to improve.
Otherwise… things would turn really ugly.
Mo Yesi’s sudden change in tone shocked Qiao Mianmian.
She was completely caught off-guard.
She had no idea that he would do this.
Actually, she was alright with Gong Zeli not liking her or greeting her at all.
They were Mo Yesi’s friends, not hers.
It wasn’t unusual that they didn’t like her.
And she could tell that Gong Zeli and Shen Rou shared a close relationship. It was possible that his coldness towards her had something to do with Shen Rou.
“Mo Yesi, it’s fine, I…” Qiao Mianmian wanted to say it didn’t matter to her.
She felt that there was no need for Mo Yesi to strain his relationship with his close buddies because of her.
