Ye Jiu returned to her room and waited for a long time, but she did not hear any news of Chu Mo’s return.
She went to ask the butler and Nanny Li, but they only said that the Young Master would be home very late today.
However, the attitude of the two of them seemed strange, as if they wanted to say something but hesitated.
Ye Jiu thought about it and decided to call Chu Mo to ask.
However, when she picked up her phone, she realised that she did not have Chu Mo’s number in her phone.
Chu Mo had saved her number before, but she felt annoyed at that time and deleted it.
She did not expect that she would be the one who felt awkward when she wanted to call Chu Mo.
She hurriedly asked the butler for Chu Mo’s phone number. Under the butler’s surprised gaze, Ye Jiu returned to her room.
When the call was connected, Xie Ying’s voice came through. “Miss Ye, the President is busy right now…”
“Okay, I’ll call him back later.” Ye Jiu tactfully hung up the phone.
Xie Ying put the phone back on the desk in front of Chu Mo.
Xie Xin stood at the side and could not help but mutter, “You’ve been waiting for Miss Ye’s call for so long, but now you’re not picking up.”
Chu Mo ignored him and leaned against the back of his chair. His eyes did not leave his phone.
Ye Jiu put down the phone and felt extremely bored.
She had never expected Chu Mo to pick up her call, but she had never felt as disappointed as she was now.
She sighed and walked to the kitchen. She wanted to ask Nanny Li what she wanted to say to her just now.
Just as she walked into the kitchen, she heard a woman’s voice from inside. “If you ask me, Miss Ye won’t be staying in our Chu family for long.”
“What do you mean?” Another slightly light voice followed.
“Didn’t you see? The Young Master clearly came back this afternoon, but he turned around and left when he saw Miss Ye!” The woman’s voice from before came again.
Ye Jiu frowned and was even more confused.
She looked out and saw that two servants were working for Nanny Li. One of them was called Xiao Yao, and the other seemed to be…
“Zi Xi, don’t spout nonsense. I heard that Young Master even had dinner with Miss Ye yesterday!” Xiao Yao immediately caught up with the gossip.
“That was all because of that woman!” Zi Xi said disdainfully. “You have to know that our Young Master could have any woman he wants!”
“I don’t know what bewitched him earlier!” The more Zi Xi said, the angrier she got.
She looked as if Chu Mo had provoked something unclean.
“Fortunately, Young Master has finally woken up!” Zi Xi placed the plate she had wiped dry into the cupboard.
Xiao Yao put down the plate in her hands and watched as Zi Xi reached out to touch a set of cutlery that belonged exclusively to Chu Mo.
Xiao Yao raised her eyebrows and looked at Z Xii. “I see that you look very happy!”
“Of course!” Zi Xi did not try to hide her happiness.
Xiao Yao looked at Zi Xi in surprise. “You’re not like Xiao Ling…”
“I’m not like her!” Zi Xi scoffed. It was obvious that she looked down on Xiao Ling. “I’m not as stupid as her!”
“Right, right, right! You’re the smartest!” Xiao Yao could not help but tease. “Young Master likes you the most!”
“You’re annoying!” Zi Xi blushed and turned around to play with Xiao Yao.
While the two of them were playing, Xiao Yao saw Ye Jiu standing at the kitchen door.
“Miss… Miss Ye!” Xiao Yao immediately stood still and looked very reserved.
Zi Xi also paused, but she was not as respectful as Xiao Yao. “Standing outside and eavesdropping on others…”
“Seriously…” Zi Xi did not finish her sentence, but it was obvious that it was not something good.
Xiao Yao quickly pulled Zi Xi back, afraid that she would continue.
Ye Jiu did not flare up, but she looked at Zi Xi from head to toe.
She did have some impression of this Zi Xi in her previous life.
Every time she saw her, it seemed to be when she was with Chu Mo.
And Zi Xi seemed to have a smile on her face every time. She seemed to be very gentle.
But turns out she was actually like this.
She acted that way for Chu Mo?
Ye Jiu could not help but feel jealous.
In her previous life, the man that she tried so hard to push away was actually so popular?
The more she thought about it, the more she felt that she had to have a good talk with Chu Mo.
“You guys continue to be busy…” Ye Jiu pretended that she did not hear their conversation and asked instead, “Where’s Nanny Li?”
Xiao Yao quickly pointed out Nanny Li’s whereabouts to Ye Jiu.
After watching Ye Jiu leave, Xiao Yao suddenly patted her own chest a few times.
She was caught talking bad about others and was caught on the spot. It was really embarrassing!
However, Zi Xi’s gaze never left Ye Jiu’s back. There was a hint of hostility in her eyes.
