“You were injured just now, and you still have to be so busy…” Chu mo said, feeling a little guilty.
Ye Jiu smiled awkwardly. “That’s not really an injury… I was just playing around…”
The two of them hugged each other quietly for a moment before Chu Mo left Ye Jiu’s room.
In the next two days, Ye Jiu repeated the routine of familiarising herself with the matters of the cocktail party and chatting with Old Madam Chu.
Occasionally, Xie Ying would bring some things that Chu Mo sent over for her to choose from.
She only picked one or two things that she liked, and the rest were returned to him.
What puzzled Ye Jiu these two days was Lin Ying…
Lin Ying was too quiet, which made Ye Jiu feel uneasy.
The night before the cocktail party, Chu Mo came to Ye Jiu’s room…
“The banquet is tomorrow…” Chu mo said and gently put his arm around Ye Jiu’s shoulder.
Ye Jiu responded with a “yea”, and the expression on her face darkened slightly.
“You don’t have to worry too much.”Chu Mo looked at Ye Jiu’s expression and thought that she was still nervous, so he tried to comfort her.
Chu Mo’s voice sounded worried..
Ye Jiu raised her head and smiled at him. “With you here, I won’t worry!”
Ye Jiu shook her head to shake off her uneasiness.
Early in the morning on the day of the banquet, a few servants came to Ye Jiu’s room and tidied up all her things that needed to be prepared for the banquet.
Other than the dress and accessories that entered with her into the banquet hall, the rest of her items needed to be brought along in the car.
Ye Jiu watched as the servants tidied up her things, and the uneasiness in her heart came back again.
Only when Chu Mo came to pick Ye Jiu up and set off together did Ye Jiu relax a little.
Along the way, Ye Jiu had been sitting quietly.
Chu Mo thought she was nervous, so he held her hand tightly.
The two of them got off the car and walked into the hotel lobby under the flashing lights.
The Chu family’s anniversary party had always been held in their own hotel.
Therefore, a large number of reporters had already been waiting at the entrance of the Chu hotel.
The two of them walked into the lounge arranged by the hotel.
Chu Mo quietly waited for Ye Jiu to get dressed.
There were many female guests attending the banquet, so as the host of the banquet, Ye Jiu naturally had to maintain a perfect posture at all times.
“Aiya! What… What’s going on?” A maid suddenly exclaimed.
Chu Mo heard it and walked forward to take a look.
“How did this tear?” The maid grabbed the shoulder strap of Ye Jiu’s pink gown.
The thin shoulder strap actually torn at the seam.
The tear was on her back, but Ye Jiu could not see it at all.
Chu Mo frowned and looked at the tear. It was not caused just now…
It meant that someone destroyed the dress when Ye Jiu was changing in the morning!
“Go and get another one!” Chu Mo ordered sternly.
The maid immediately ran to get another dress.
However, when the gown was opened, everyone gasped.
They saw that the blue gown was torn into pieces from the chest down.
This could not be remedied!
Chu Mo’s eyes darkened.
He turned around and ordered Xie Ying, “Go get the spare gown!”
“But…” Xie Ying hesitated for a moment. Under Chu Mo’s gaze, she still went to get the gown.
Chu Mo stared at the two gowns with a pair of dark eyes.
Ye Jiu grabbed a servant and said, “Can you help me call Chu Yu?”
The servant quickly responded and turned around to run out.
Just as she ran out of the room, she bumped into someone.
The person scolded sharply, “What are you panicking for? Don’t you have eyes?”
The servant looked at her and quickly took two steps back. “Miss Lin!”
“What happened?” Lin Ying narrowed her eyes and looked at the servant.
“Miss Ye’s dress… is destroyed!” The servant answered honestly.
“Destroyed?” Lin Ying raised her eyebrows slightly. “How can it be destroyed?”
“I’ll go and take a look!” Lin Ying said and ignored the servant. She pushed the door open and walked into Ye Jiu’s lounge.
In the lounge, Ye Jiu had just changed out of her pink dress.
Because the shoulder strap was torn, there were tears on the seam of her back.
Chu Mo sat on the sofa coldly.
Lin Ying walked forward and asked, “Chu Mo, what happened?”
Chu Mo ignored her, but Ye Jiu answered, “My dress is destroyed!”
“How can this be?” Lin Ying asked with a puzzled face, “Where’s the other dress?”
Ye Jiu raised his eyebrows and said leisurely, “It’s also destroyed…”
“Ah! What should we do then?” Lin Ying said anxiously, “The banquet is about to begin!”
“How about this…” Lin Ying looked at Chu Mo and said expectantly, “Why don’t I go with Chu Mo first…”
Chu Mo raised his hand and said, “Wait!”
Lin Ying was stunned for a moment and then said discontentedly, “The Chu family’s anniversary banquet is so important for Ye Jiu…”
Chu Mo did not even look at Lin Ying, and his expression became even gloomier.
Lin Ying was about to say something when a voice behind her suddenly said, “Excuse me!”
Lin Ying did not react in time. She was pushed lightly by the force behind her, and she staggered a step forward.
Xie Ying rushed to the lounge with a spare gown…
