Xia Mengyan quickly said warmly, “Hello, Mr. Song. Please accompany Mr. Su to the lounge first. I’ll send someone to get all of you later.”
Song Shiyu smiled meaningfully. “Miss Xia, you’re really understanding, huh? But have you always been so gentle and virtuous?”
Xia Mengyan smiled in embarrassment. She did not understand the meaning behind Song Shiyu’s words and thought that he was praising her. She felt even prouder.
“Mr. Song, I’m not gentle or virtuous. It’s just that everyone here is my family and friend. Even if there’s a misunderstanding between us, I won’t hold it against you,” Xia Mengyan said, pretending to be magnanimous.
Qiao Xi raised her eyebrows. Xia Mengyan really knew how to flatter herself. She meant that the Yin family had done something wrong, but she would not take issue with it and would even generously forgive the Yin family. She was indeed from the Xia family for saying such dignified words.
The corners of Xia Mengyan’s mouth curled into a proud smile. Although she did not know who invited Su Dongjun, she knew very well that she was far better than Qiao Xi in terms of interpersonal relationships. Even though Qiao Xi had married Gu Zheng, it had not even been a year. She did not like to attend all kinds of banquets, nor did she interact with noble families. The number of people she knew in high society could be counted on one hand. How could she know Su Dongjun?
As for Yin Jinglin, although the Yin family was powerful, he had been eyeing Su Dongjun’s dishes for a long time but never managed to invite the top chef over. Now that Su Dongjun was here for her, it was a slap to the Yin family’s face. What right did the Yin family have to continue staying here?
In the past, the Yin family only had their current status because of the foundation of their ancestors. The Xia family started from scratch, so they naturally could not compare to them. However, they would go up against them one day!
Xia Mengyan curled her lips and said respectfully, “Mr. Song, please go to the lounge with Mr. Su…”
“That’s not necessary.” Song Shiyu waved his hand and refused. He smiled meaningfully. “Mr. Su is here to cook. He’s been entrusted with the task, so he won’t be resting. Miss Xia, you’re helping the fifth young master of the Yin family with his birthday banquet and even welcomed the top chef on his behalf. You’re really magnanimous!”
Song Shiyu’s casual words stirred up a storm in everyone’s hearts.
The backyard was silent for a few seconds. Xia Mengyan seemed to have stopped breathing as she looked at Song Shiyu in disbelief. Xia Cheng and the Xia family were also stunned, their eyes filled with shock.
Su Dongjun’s apprentice said that they were here to congratulate the fifth young master of the Yin family?
The smile on Xia Mengyan’s face froze. It was as if she had been struck by lightning. Her legs went weak, and her body swayed.
No! Impossible! Chef Su’s apprentice must have made a mistake. How could they be here for Yin Jinglin?
Song Shiyu glanced at the Xia family indifferently, then walked in front of Yin Jinglin and asked patiently, “Young Master Yin, what kind of dishes do you like? Please tell me. Mr. Su will cook for you today!”
As soon as he finished speaking, Su Dongjun took a few steps forward and said indifferently, “Young Master Yin, feel free to instruct me.”
Xia Mengyan felt her heart being squeezed tightly, and it even stopped beating. Her face was ferocious, and she could not control her emotions at all.
Yin Jinglin? The chef was actually here for him?
Then why did the chef and his apprentices not retort when she went forward just now?
Song Shiyu looked at Xia Mengyan’s fierce gaze and asked in surprise and confusion, “Miss Xia, why do you look so pale? Don’t tell me you thought Mr. Su was here to cook for you? That’ll be too awkward.”
The entire venue was silent. The chefs behind Su Dongjun also looked at Xia Mengyan with mocking gazes.
Xia Mengyan lowered her head and felt that she was surrounded by mocking gazes. They were all laughing at her for overestimating herself. Mr. Su was clearly here for Yin Jinglin, but she shamelessly thought he was here for her.
However, it was clearly that apprentice who deliberately led her to mistakenly think that Mr. Su was here for her!
Xia Mengyan only felt her chest tighten, and the air around her became thin. She wanted to explain, but she could not say a word.
After a long time, Xia Cheng cleared his throat and said, “Mr. Song, didn’t you say that Mr. Su came for my granddaughter? I only have Mengyan as my granddaughter. It’s not strange that Mengyan misunderstood. If you hadn’t said something wrong, Mengyan wouldn’t have thought that way.”
