Ye Wanwan was stuck in a daze. Madam Nie’s decision to adopt her as a foster daughter came too suddenly. She was completely caught off guard.
Before Ye Wanwan could say anything, “Worriless Nie” frowned at Madam Nie. “Mom… You’re the madam of the Nie family. It’s no small matter for you to adopt a foster daughter… Moreover, this is your first time meeting Miss Wanwan; you don’t know her well enough. How could you adopt her so easily…?”
“Mom, Sister Worriless is right. We should wait until Dad is back and discuss this matter before deciding…” Nie Linglong hastily interjected as well.
“What nonsense are you two saying?!” Nameless Nie glanced at his two sisters before turning to his mother and grinning. “Mom… I think Wanwan is rather nice. With our relationship, it’d be no problem at all for you to adopt her as your foster daughter.”
“But Dad isn’t back yet. Isn’t this too impulsive?” Nie Linglong looked at Worriless Nie as she spoke.
Nameless Nie pursed his lips. “Dad hasn’t come back for a long time. There’s an 80% chance he’s been seduced by some vixen on the outside….”
“Insolence! A mouthful of nonsense!” Madam Nie fiercely glared at Nameless Nie.
Ye Wanwan: “…” Talking about his father like this… Is Nameless Nie dim-witted…?
Madam Nie turned to Ye Wanwan and smiled. “Wanwan, what do you think?”
Ye Wanwan was about to speak when she was interrupted by Madam Nie. “It is a bit sudden, so how about you consider it for a few days first, Wanwan?”
“Alright.” Ye Wanwan nodded.
As Nie Linglong was about to say something, the Nie family’s steward entered the living room and respectfully said to Madam Nie, “Madam… The Shen family’s Eldest Young Master is visiting.”
“The Shen family’s Eldest Young Master?” Madam Nie looked pensive.
As one of the four great clans of the Independent State, the Shen family was loaded with money. There wasn’t a single group in the Independent State that could compare to them.
The Independent State revered martial arts, so all the patrician families and factions were immersed in martial arts.
However, the Shen family was an exception. They only prioritized business.
The entire Independent State, from restaurants to real estate and construction, was almost completely monopolized by the Shen family.
And the Eldest Young Master of the Shen family was the heir.
“God of Wealth is here?!” Nameless Nie became elated. “Hurry… hurry and invite him inside!”
The steward nodded and quickly left.
A moment later, a young man wearing cyan form-fitting clothes sauntered into the Nie residence’s living room.
“Hahaha, Old Pal Shen, long time no see.” Nameless Nie hastily walked forward to greet Eldest Young Master Shen as soon as he entered.
“Brother Nie, here, a greeting gift.” Eldest Young Master Shen took out a bar of gold and handed it to Nameless Nie.
“Old Pal Shen!” Nameless Nie looked displeased. “What are you doing?! What are we? We’re sworn brothers! Why are you giving me a gold bar for nothing? Aren’t you slapping my face?! Don’t do this next time!”
As Nameless Nie finished speaking, he hastily put away the gold bar.
“Brother Nie, I understand! I’ll give you a gold brick next time!” Eldest Young Master Shen quickly replied.
Ye Wanwan: “…” Where did this oddball come from…?
“Come, you’ve worked hard, Steward.” Eldest Young Master Shen took out a gold bar and handed it to the elderly steward.
“Thank you, Eldest Young Master Shen.” The elderly man nodded at the young man in thanks.
The elderly steward was already used to Eldest Young Master Shen giving him gold bars or cash every time he visited.
