Ye Chen and Yun Ruoxi’s wedding were to be held in City A’s grandest
five-star restaurant. The lineup was magnificent, and invited guests
included politicians, magnates, and megastars. Any big shot who was
slightly related to either the Ye or the Yun families was invited!
The massive parking lot outside the hotel became a makeshift luxury car
exposition. The guests were dressed in bright colors. The gentlemen were
polite and suave, and the ladies exuded sexiness with their stylish
It became a special catwalk.
The flashlights incessantly flashed on.
This wedding banquet was scarcely unheard of among upper society. The
affluence of both the Ye and the Yun families allowed it to be extremely
The bright lights, red carpet, elegant music, and luxurious decorations
of the hall dazzled many. One could easily feel the pomp and extravagance
in the atmosphere.
The roses which lined the well-decorated hall added an ambiance of
The visitors who came to congratulate them carried a gamut of thoughts:
mockery, indifference, well-wishes, catharsis, and happiness. In spite of
their feelings, they all smiled as they blessed them.
Both the Ye and the Yun families engaged the most authoritative media
outlets to cover this extravagant engagement banquet.
The bride-to-be walked amongst the guests with happiness on her face as
she received their blessings. With a hand on her abdomen, she hinted at
how worthy her pregnancy was.
Although her posturing was slightly artificial, it seemed even funnier
when somebody of her stature did it.
However, many were much more forgiving toward the two who were eventually
to become one. Apart from a small minority who could not let it slide,
everyone else mingled and had fun.
It was always a show.
And that was how the tycoons did it. Putting up a show during the
wedding, another one during the pregnancy, and another one during labor…
Everything, like in fairy tales, was so perfect. The prince and princess
were about to live a happy life.
However, as time slowly passed, the groom-to-be was not seen. Somebody
from the Ye family had said that Third Young Master Ye had some urgent
business to see to and could be late. Nobody was panicking.
Apart from Third Young Master Ye’s philandering ways, he was also an
infamous workaholic. Nothing seemed strange.
Besides the media’s frantic coverage of their engagement, nobody would
have suspected that Ye Chen could not be bothered about the wedding
banquet. The banquet was merely wishful thinking of both the Ye and the
As time slowly passed, the bride-to-be was starting to put up a forced
smile as she looked at the entrance in a daze. She was eventually helped
into the lounge by her two aunts.
The guests started to realize something was amiss and murmured among
themselves under the elegant music. Oh, what the irony!
In the lounge, Yun Ruoxi cried buckets of tears. As though she had been
wronged once too many, she buried herself in Madam Yun’s embrace with a
face of sadness. Despite her incessant crying messing up her makeup, she
was still as beautiful as ever.
A pure woman in a gown crying made members of the Yun family as upset.
Old Master Yun was enraged and asked Old Master Ye, “Where’s Ye
“I have already sent somebody to find him!” Old Master Ye replied
deeply as he stoically endured the rage and insults from the Yun family.
This was indeed an incident due to a lack of thoroughness in his planning.
“Sent somebody to find him?” Old Master Yun asked with a raised
voice. With his beloved daughter insulted, his face was bright red and
rage burned in his eyes. “Didn’t you say Ye Chen would turn up?
Didn’t you tell him? Where is Ruoxi’s dignity given this mess now?”
As Yun Ruoxi heard this, she cried even harder as tears streamed down her
“Ye Chen, he…” Ruoxi said chokingly as she closed her eyes. “He
said he knew last night. Why did he not turn up?”
Old Master Ye frowned. He seemed to have overlooked the blind spot in Ye
Chen’s reply. He had told Ye Chen that the wedding banquet with Yun
Ruoxi was on today. Despite the implicit threat, Ye Chen coldly
He did not consent, and neither did he confirm his attendance. After
informing him of the banquet, he said he knew. He only knew!
And Old Master Ye thought he had compromised!
As Chen De pushed open the door and entered, Old Master Ye asked, “Have
you found Ye Chen?”
Chen Ye shook his head and told Old Master Ye. “I’ve searched
everywhere but I could not find Third Young Master Ye!”
“The hospital?” Old Master Ye asked in a deep voice. Yun Ruoxi looked
at them with eyes wide open as she awaited Chen De’s reply in fear.
Chen De looked across the people present and replied honestly, “Third
Young Master Ye helped Miss Cheng with her discharge procedures today.
Somebody saw the three of them leave the hospital together. Nobody knows
where they were heading to!”
“Scoundrel!” Old Master Yun trembled in anger as he smashed his hand
on the dressing table mirror. Everyone was shocked as the mirror cracked
and glass was scattered all around the place. “Ye Chen is taking it too
“Have you searched Cheng Anya’s place?” Old Master Ye asked Chen De.
Chen De nodded and then shook his head. Old Master Ye’s face was ashen
and a shred of viciousness glinted past his sharp gaze. His veins were
throbbing as he grabbed his crutch tightly. Ye Chen’s actions showed
his utter contempt for both the Ye and the Yun families!
Not only his no-show at the wedding banquet made Yun Ruoxi awkward, but
it also made the Ye and the Yun families even more so. With the frantic
media coverage, the press conference they had would become a joke.
“Send somebody to find him! He must be found!”
As Chen De left, Old Master Yun looked at Old Master Ye. “Old Master
Ye, how could you do this to me? Ye Chen had an affair with his female
subordinate and they both have such an old child. How dare you hide that
from me? And look at what he has done to my darling daughter! Is he
trying to be irresponsible? The whole town knows that Yun Ruoxi is
bearing his son and is about to marry into the Ye family. How could Yun
Ruoxi live with him walking away from it all? Is he trying to drive my
daughter to her death? Since we are past him already having a son, what
more does he want?”
He had lost his voice come the end of his diatribe.
Old Master Ye remained unfazed. He was past him having a son? Why was he
past that, or rather, why was he not after the wealth and power of the Ye
family? If it was all for Ye Chen to slog his guts out for him, that was
put through in a very nice way.
Although the Yun and the Ye families were wealthy, the Yun family was a
distant second from the Ye family in terms of wealth and influence!
Yang Zekun walked out of the courtyard and called Old Master Yang and
briefly described the situation at the banquet to Old Master Yang. The
gentle man smiled with a slight mockery and said, “I’m sure Third
Young Master Ye will not show up!”
He did not understand why his grandfather wanted him to attend this
wedding banquet. What was an extremely dull affair suddenly became much
Third Young Master Ye was one to always have his way and whose arrogance
could not be tempered. He did not expect him to ditch Yun Ruoxi and
disappear without a trace. He thought about how saucy the headlines
tomorrow would be!
Yun Ruoxi went from heaven to hell, and Third Young Master Ye went from
master of love to an irresponsible douche.
City A had been really happening in recent times!
“As expected, this kid would not agree to the marriage!” Old Master
Ye smiled lightly. Yang Zekun was taken aback at Old Master Yang’s
sniggering in a moment of schadenfreude. “Let’s see how Old Master Ye
cleans up the mess. Zekun, come back!”
“Yes, grandfather!” Yang Zekun smiled as he hung up the phone. Had he
known that Third Young Master Ye was together with Cheng Anya, he would
not have been so happy!
It was all doom and gloom at the wedding banquet, whilst warmth and
laughter at a seaside mansion.
Two extreme emotions in the same country.
One’s family joy, another two families’ misery!
