The Little Brat’s Sweet And Sassy - Chapter 421
Suddenly, the door behind her was pushed open again.
Ye Ci came in with a backpack.
She had been busy with visa applications for studying abroad recently and was quite busy. That was why she had come home at this time today.
When she saw Ning Li, she frowned and a deep sense of disgust flashed in her eyes.
Lately, she had almost no communication with Ning Li. However, this did not mean that the feud between them was over.
She would always find a chance to get everything back.
Not willing to stay around Ning Li anymore, Ye Ci raised her foot and walked upstairs.
However, just as she had taken a step, the sound of a door slamming came from the master bedroom on the first floor.
Ye Ci was shocked and immediately looked over, only to see Ye Ming walking out with a sullen face.
Seeing him like this, Ye Ci’s heart subconsciously trembled.
Could it be that there was something wrong again?
However, she had clearly not done anything recently…
Ye Ming’s footsteps paused. He glanced at Ye Ci and coldly said, “I have something to do at the company. I won’t be coming home tonight.”
After saying that, he left, taking large strides without any hesitation.
Su Yuan rushed out of the room. Her exquisite makeup had long been smeared with tears.
However, Ye Ming did not pay any attention to her. He picked his coat up, slammed the door, and left.
Everything had happened too quickly. By the time Ye Ci had come back to her senses, Ye Ming had already gone.
Only Su Yuan was left slumped on the sofa, crying even harder.
Ye Ci felt a sense of unease in her heart. She walked quickly to Su Yuan’s side.
“Mom? What happened? Did you and Dad quarrel?”
As far as she remembered, Su Yuan almost never quarreled with her father. Although there had been times when they had quarreled, Su Yuan had always been gentle and careful. She had always been able to coax Ye Ming.
Basically, within a few days, the two of them would always be back to normal.
This was the first time she had seen Su Yuan get so angry at Ye Ming and quarrel like this.
Su Yuan covered her face and cried until her shoulders trembled slightly.
It seemed that she was really very sad.
Seeing this, Ye Ci also became anxious.
Ye Ming had not gotten angry with her, so it should not have been her problem.
However, since the two of them were in such a state, it was obvious that something big had happened.
Could it be that the company–
She helped Su Yuan wipe her tears with a tissue as she soothingly stroked her back.
“Mom, what’s going on? Dad just said that he was going back to the company. Is it that–”
Su Yuan seemed to become greatly agitated when she heard this. She raised her voice and cried, “He must have gone out to look for that vixen!”
Ye Ci was momentarily stunned before she suddenly understood what had happened.
Her father had cheated on her mother.
In an instant, she actually heaved a sigh of relief in her heart.
As long as it was not something at home or the company, everything else was not a big problem.
However, she did not dare to show such emotions in front of Su Yuan.
She stopped moving.
“Mom, did someone say something to you? Dad has always been so good to you, how could he do such a thing?”
“I saw it with my own eyes!”
Su Yuan cried even harder,
“His mistress sent the photo to my phone! How could it still be fake!?”
Ye Ci froze.
Since Su Yuan said so, then… It could not be fake.
Su Yuan’s eyes were red and swollen, and she was almost out of breath from crying.
Sad, angry, and sullen!
Ye Ci finally understood why the two of them had had such a huge conflict.
She suddenly thought of something. “Oh by the way, where’s Lil Cheng?”
There had been such a huge commotion in the house, yet she had not seen Ye Cheng.
Su Yuan said in a hoarse voice, “I sent him to your cousin’s place.”
She had received the photos in the afternoon. She had then sent Ye Cheng away and called Ye Ming.
The two of them had been arguing for more than an hour.
Ye Ci was silent for a long time. Then, she held Su Yuan’s hand and said, “Mom, this is Dad’s fault. However, he has always loved you very much. This time, he must have acted on impulse. Please calm down first. What if your health suffers? For the sake of your relationship of so many years long, please give dad a chance, okay?”
“Lil Cheng and I need you very much.”
What she meant was to imply that Su Yuan should forget about this matter and let it go.
Ye Ci was actually very open-minded about such things.
A rich man had the capital.
With her father, who knew how many young ladies were waiting to pounce on him and become his mistress?
In wealthy families, this kind of thing was very common.
Generally speaking, as long as any outsiders knew something and did not cause trouble in the home, many people would turn a blind eye.
Just because of a mistress, Su Yuan had become so angry, and she even made such a big fuss with Ye Ming…
“Otherwise, wouldn’t you be pushing Daddy out?”
However, after hearing her words, Su Yuan’s emotions became even more agitated.
“Lil Ci, you still don’t know what’s happening. How am I the one who wants to push him? It’s him who doesn’t want us, mother and son!”
She was so angry that her entire body trembled, and her tears flowed even more fiercely.
“His mistress is already seven months pregnant!”
Ye Ci’s mind buzzed.
“She’s only 19 this year! She’s only in her second year of college! Your father said that the child in her stomach is a son. So, no matter what, he has to keep the child!”
When Su Yuan mentioned this, she was furious again.
If not for this matter, would she have caused such a ruckus?
It was not that she had not known that Ye Ming had always been looking for women outside and cheated on her.
All these years, she had always pretended not to know about such things.
It was not that she did not feel bad, but she knew very well that she could not control Ye Ming.
Whether it was for novelty or excitement, a person like Ye Ming faced too many temptations. Could she control him for a day or two? Could she control him for ten or twenty years?
Therefore, she had long advised herself to be more open-minded and allowed Ye Ming to do whatever he wanted outside. As long as Madam Ye’s position was still hers, nothing else mattered.
All this time, Ye Ming had given her sufficient respect and he had rarely let those women cause trouble with her.
They had just muddled along like this, maintaining the superficial harmony and love of a wealthy family’s marriage.
However, this time was different. Ye Ming had actually gotten the girl pregnant! And, he had even said that he would keep the child!
How could Su Yuan not be angry?
Originally, the Ye family had only had two children. One was Ye Ci, and the other was Ye Cheng.
Ye Ci was the child of Ye Ming and his ex-wife, and she was also a daughter.
Ye Cheng was the only boy in the Ye family, and the entire Ye family company would belong to him in the future.
However, if another illegitimate child came along…
The other party was clearly here to split the family fortune!
Su Yuan had been swallowing her anger for so many years. Who would have known that in the end, Ye Ming would do such a thing to her!
At first, when she had seen those intimate photos, she had thought that as long as Ye Ming kicked the girl out, they would be able to continue on as before.
Who knew that Ye Ming would say that the girl was already pregnant? Moreover, she was already in her seventh month, and the fetus was already a fully formed human!
Since it was a son, how could he bear to hurt it?
Su Yuan’s argument with him had been fruitless, and only then had she erupted.
As she spoke, Su Yuan’s tears flowed out again, and she cried incessantly.
Ye Ci’s face had gone pale.
“Then, then what should we do now?”
