"You..." Ye Mu Fan was exasperated.
"Alright, alright, it's not easy for our family to be together like this today, so stop fighting!" Liang Wan Jun saw the two siblings had started fighting again and quickly tried to intervene.
Ye Mu Fan suppressed the fiery rage within him and continued drinking his wine non-stop.
At this moment, the banquet was halfway through.
Ye Yiyi took the microphone and stood on stage entertaining the guests and offered birthday wishes, naturally and unconstrained, exuding a grandeur and gracefulness.
As Ye Shao An, his wife and the old madam were unable to rush back due to the snow, this entire grand banquet was managed solely by Ye Yiyi from beginning till the end. Everything was clean and orderly, so the main guest was extremely grateful.
Every guest had their eyes on Ye Yiyi was full of praise for her. "She's indeed worthy of being the elders' favorite granddaughter in the entire Ye family--she already had the demeanour of someone in-charge of the house; if someone could marry a good wife like her, he truly has good fortune!"
"Don't think about it, she's already been snatched up by the Gu family! Didn't you see how the two of them were inseparable tonight?"
"The two of them are truly an ideal couple; a pair made in heaven!"
"Tsk, I'm just afraid someone won't stop pestering him..."
With that said, all the guests turned towards a certain figure seated at the corner.
"Actually, based on looks, Ye Wanwan's a cut above her!"
"Also, she got into Imperial Media University with such high scores and even has friendly relations with Old Mei..."
Everyone knew that saying "a cut above" was actually tactful--it wasn't even an exaggeration to say that Ye Wanwan's appearance today stunned everybody, not to mention her various surprising performances today.
However, everyone knew that no matter how beautiful Ye Wanwan was and how outstanding she was, why did it matter?
With Ye Shao Ting in this current situation, Ye Wanwan could never compare to Ye Yiyi. Even if she continued pestering Gu Yue Ze, they were both in different worlds.
Everyone lamented over this. When Ye Yiyi was done with her speech, Gu Yue Ze suddenly walked towards the stage.
Ye Yiyi glanced at the man. A tinge of hesitation appeared in her eyes.
Gu Yue Ze held Ye Yiyi's hand. His eyes filled with tenderness as he spoke gently, "Yiyi, I know you care about your cousin's feelings but please accept this as I'm begging you; please think of yourself and think of me too! I want everyone to know, the whole world to know... that you're mine..."
Ye Yiyi listened to Gu Yue Ze's words and was very moved. In the end, she nodded.
Everyone saw how Gu Yue Ze suddenly rushed to the stage. Their eyes instinctively turned to Gu Yue Ze with a hunger for juicy gossip and curiosity, unsure of what Gu Yue Ze was planning to do.
Only Ye Wanwan, who was in the corner, knew that tonight, not only was Gu Yue Ze announcing the annulment of their engagement, he was also making it publicly known that he and Ye Yiyi would be engaged--crushing their entire family's hopes to the ground.
Just because of this incident, she made a huge din in her previous life and completely embarrassed her parents.
In this life... history seemed to repeat itself...
"Everyone, I'm very sorry, I'll need to take up a little of your time!" Gu Yue Ze held the microphone and spoke suddenly.
Everyone's eyes were on the tall and handsome man on stage, waiting for him to continue.
Ye Wanwan raised her head, drank the last mouthful of tea in her cup and stood up.
Ye Mu Fan saw Ye Wanwan stand up and immediately tensed up as instinctively grabbed her hand. "Ye Wanwan, what are you trying to do?"
Ye Wanwan's cherry lips curled up slightly as she calmly removed her hand from Ye Mu Fan's grasp. "None of your business."
