Chapter 26: Face-Slapping the Adoptive Mother (3)
Ye Fan could already guess what Nie Weiru wanted to say. However, she also wanted to pay a visit to Nie Weiru, so she agreed.
“Anything else? I’m hanging up now,” Ye Fan said bluntly.
“No…” Before Nie Weiru could finish speaking, Ye Fan had already hung up.
Nie Weiru stared at her phone, stunned. Then, her anger rose up. When did Ye Fan get so brave as to hang up on her?
What’s more, she had just realized that she never called her mom.
Ye Fan hung up the call and left her phone to the side. She noticed that Dudu had been staring at her this whole time with his hand over his mouth.
Ye Fan pulled down Dudu’s small little hand and said, “Alright, Dudu can talk now.”
The little toddler pouted his lips and touched Ye Fan’s face. “Mommy is unhappy.” His tone was firm.
This surprised Ye Fan and she was just about to speak when Dudu’s face suddenly came close. He rubbed his nose on Ye Fan’s face, saying, “But baby won’t let mommy be unhappy.”
Ye Fan couldn’t help but laugh. She picked up Dudu, and while walking around her house, kissed him many times before stopping.
“Dudu really is mommy’s sweet little baby.”
At night, after passing Dudu to Nanny Li, Ye Fan headed out.
Ye Fan did not have the keys back home so she had to ring the doorbell when she arrived. There were several dishes on the dining table, but none of them were foods Ye Fan liked.
Seems like this was Nie Weiru’s way of jabbing back at her.
When Ye Fan arrived, the original Ye Fan’s sister, Ye Li, had also just returned from outside and they bumped into each other. Ye Li looked at her and reluctantly called out, “Sis.”
Ye Li noticed that Ye Fan wasn’t well-liked by Nie Weiru ever since she was young, so she followed in her mother’s footsteps and bullied her as well.
Once she got older, Nie Weiru secretly told her that Ye Fan wasn’t her sister at all, but she did not disclose too much and said only that.
Since then, Ye Li’s attitude towards Ye Fan got even worse. Clearly it was Ye Fan who provided for her and paid for her tuition, but Ye Li never felt grateful for it.
On the contrary, she felt that the money Ye Fan brought home was too little. She was a typical spoiled and ungrateful brat.
But Ye Li would only show this side of her at home. When she was outside, she appeared just like a sweet little child.
Ye Li took the initiative to greet her, but even though Ye Fan knew that she entered, she did not turn around to look at her and only hummed in response.
Ye Li frowned. Why was she like this now? She had always tried to curry her favor in the past.
Ye Li snorted and no longer paid attention to Ye Fan, instead focusing her attention on her phone after sitting down at the dinner table. She was looking through the relevant Weibo posts for Mr. Young and Popular Duan Qi, Tang Jin’s boyfriend.
Ye Li was a fan of Duan Qi’s, that’s why she hated Tang Jin.
When Nie Weiru came out from the kitchen, she saw that Ye Fan had arrived but was just sitting there, completely without any intentions of helping. Her face darkened.
Halfway through the meal, Nie Weiru thought about getting Ye Fan to hand over the money she earned. But as soon as she was just about to speak, Ye Fan noticed her intentions and spoke before her.
“Mom, I picked up a new role.”
Nie Weiru was impatient. “Alright, and? You better not forget to bring home the money.”
Ye Fan ignored her. “I’m in the same drama as Tang Jin. She’s the leading actress for the series.”
As soon as she heard that, Nie Weiru dropped her chopsticks on the table. A look of panic began surfacing in her eyes. “Why didn’t you mention this to me before?”
Ye Fan’s lips curled up into a smile. “I’m her big sister in the show, but she’s acting as a young miss while I’m the illegitimate daughter who’s thrown out onto the streets.”
Nie Weiru’s face paled. She wanted to speak, but she couldn’t get her words out.
