Chapter 1529: A girl will doll herself up for a man who loves her

Ji Xiuran chuckled lightly. “I’ve never seen you dressed like this.”
Ye Wanwan purposefully glanced at Lord Asura before matter-of-factly saying, “Because a girl will doll herself up for a man who loves her!”
Ji Xiuran smiled but didn’t say anything.
As for a certain someone, the dead branch he accidentally stepped on just happened to turn into powder.
Ye Wanwan secretly peeked at the man who looked frosty and expressionless but the aura around him was clearly becoming stifling. As expected…
Her instincts were right. As long as Emperor Ji was present, a certain someone was more prone to exposing his flaws.
A moment later, the parade of people arrived at the entrance to the Shen residence.
Ye Wanwan’s lips twitched when she saw the expansive Shen residence, stretching farther than her eyes could see. Was this a residence…? This was a freaking palace, right?!
Ye Wanwan finally understood why that male host said she would get lost in the Shen residence… The sight of the Shen estate rendered her speechless.
In front of the Shen estate were two enormous dragon-shaped statues that stretched about 100 meters long and reached dozens of meters in height. They resembled real dragons, vivid and detailed.
As Ye Wanwan became engrossed in the two dragon statues, a portly middle-aged man with a prosperous look strolled out of the building and greeted Si Yehan and Ji Xiuran with a benevolent smile, “Hahaha, Emperor Ji, an honored guest. It’s truly been a long time. Thank you for attending the Shen family’s banquet today. Your presence brings light to my humble dwelling!”
“Heh, what are you saying, Uncle Shen. It’s my honor to be able to attend the Shen family’s banquet.” Ji Xiuran chuckled lightly.
“Haha, Emperor Ji is too kind.” Patriarch Shen laughed heartily and turned to Lord Asura. “Lord Asura, we haven’t seen each other for many years, so we must share a few extra drinks today. How about it?”
Si Yehan nodded at Patriarch Shen and said, “Uncle Shen is too polite. Since you’re the one asking, I’ll oblige, of course.”
In the Independent State, every faction, regardless of its size, had an economic connection with the Shen family, so even the Martial Arts Union would show some degree of respect to the Shen family.
Ye Wanwan couldn’t help but marvel at the portly middle-aged man. Patriarch Shen didn’t put on any airs and was truly friends with every faction. No wonder he controlled the economic lifeline of the Independent State and was able to expand his business into every corner of the Independent State…
“Haha, Emperor Ji, Lord Asura, quickly follow me. I’ve prepared a magnificent gift for the two of you.” After Patriarch Shen said that, he grabbed Lord Asura and Ji Xiuran’s hands with familiarity and led them into the Shen residence.
Ye Wanwan watched as Patriarch Shen left while holding Lord Asura’s hand with one hand and Ji Xiuran’s with the other hand. Why did this feel a bit… weird…
“Honorable lady, please show us your invitation,” a Shen family attendant said to Ye Wanwan with a smile.
Ye Wanwan immediately handed her invitation to the woman.
Before the woman could say anything, Eldest Young Master Shen suddenly walked to their spot, his eyes emitting light as he intently stared at Ye Wanwan and shook his head while clucking his tongue.
“Beautiful miss, we meet again… I’m truly happy to see you. If you didn’t come, my banquet would’ve been utterly meaningless…” Eldest Young Master Shen said to Ye Wanwan in an over-the-top manner.
“…” The break-up banquet you’re holding doesn’t have a freaking thing to do with whether I come or not, okay?!
“Here… Take this…” Eldest Young Master Shen took out a bank card from somewhere and handed it to Ye Wanwan.
“This…” Ye Wanwan was bewildered as she stared at the bank card stuffed into her hand.
