Chapter 353 They’re Reunited (1)
When it came to Jingyan Ye’s wedding day, Yiyao Duan was still sleeping in the morning. She opened her eyes only after being awakened by a succession of cell phones.
She reached at her side to look for her phone. Seeing the name on it, she was a little surprised, “Hello, Jinyi?”
“You’re not up yet, are you?” Jinyi’s voice was a bit anxious.
“Yes. It’s the weekend, the shop is not busy.” Yiyao looked at the time again. It was only six o’clock.
“You get up first. I’ll be right over.” Then he hung up the phone without waiting for Yiyao to reply.
Yiyao stared at the phone for a few minutes before coming to herself, and then she immediately sat up from the bed. She was afraid that when Jinyi come to her home, he would see her sitting on the bed with messy hair. So she hurriedly dressed, washed her face, and combed her hair. It took her a total of ten minutes to do all this.
Soon the doorbell rang and Yiyao got dressed and went out to answer the door. Seeing Jinyi in a suit, she wondered why he was dressed so formally. It wasn’t like he was going to give a lesson, much less go out and have fun.
“Why are you dressed so formally?” asked she.
Jinyi was also surprised by her dressing, “Is that what you’re going to wear?”
“Yeah, am I wearing something weird?”
Yiyao took a look at her clothes, white t-shirt and jeans.
Seeing Jinyi still staring at her, Yiyao became apprehensive. “Could there be something wrong with my clothes?”
Seeing him in a formal dress, she couldn’t help but bewildered. The clothes she was wearing didn’t match him, but she was dressed normally.
“You wouldn’t have forgotten what day it is, would you?” asked Jinyi.
“Is today a special day? It’s not like I’m getting married today.” Yiyao said. Then she suddenly remembered something. “Isn’t there a wedding today?”
“You finally remembered.” Jinyi sighed, “I remember that I did tell you about it last night.”
Yiyao thought for a moment. Last night, Jinyi took her to dinner. She met Jingyan Ye and his girlfriend on the way, causing her to be distracted during the meal. Jinyi should have told her about it right then, but she didn’t listen carefully.
“You better change into an evening gown. Then I’ll go with you to do your hair later.”
Yiyao scratched her head and stood there without moving. She had been in the army before. Now although she retired from the army, but she had been adhering to the style of the army. She rarely wore a skirt, let alone an evening dress.
“You don’t have an evening gown?” Jinyi asked. Then Yiyao nodded awkwardly.
Jinyi looked at the watch in her hand. “It’s only 6:30. We should still have time to get prepared.”
“Prepare for what?” asked Yiyao. While she was confused, Jinyi already took her hand and walked downstairs.
“Come with me to buy clothes.” Jinyi said. Then he led Yiyao all the way to his car.
In the car, Jinyi took out her cell phone and made a call, “Hey, Yu. Prepare an evening dress for me, the size ……”
He frowned at Yiyao, then continued, “Forget it, I’ll go to your store first.”
Yiyao in the passenger seat was a little embarrassed when she saw the expression on his face as he looked at her figure.” Is my figure so terrible?”
They quickly arrived near the mall. All the stores were still not open at this hour.
Yiyao looked at Jinyi, and asked, “You mean we go inside here?”
Jinyi nodded, “Well, we ……”
Then he suddenly saw someone waving to them, “Here.”
Yiyao followed his gaze. The person was dressed in a trendy outfit, and his hat was all characterized by graffiti.
Yu Cheng jogged over from the doorway. He rubbed his eyes, took a look at Yiyao, and then said, “Why do you ask me to prepare the dress so early? I haven’t even woken up yet.”
“There’s not much time. Hurry up and get her an evening dress that fits her.”
“Let’s go in first.” Yu walked in the front, and Jinyi and Yiyao followed him inside.
The elevator stopped at the eighteenth floor. Yiyao was surprised by what she saw when she walked out of the elevator. Various kinds of dresses were hanging all over the room.
“You can pick it yourself. These are all my latest designs.” Yu sat on the sofa by the window.
Jinyi walked around the store and frowned, “Is this all?”
“What do you mean? Why do you ask in that tone? These are the results of my work day and night. I wouldn’t even sell them even if others begged me, let alone give them away.” said Yu.
“This time I’m going to buy your clothes, so….” Jinyi said. His face was expressionless, but Yu was upset.
“What do you mean you buy it? In your eyes, I am the kind of person who hides the good ones for money?” Yu interrupted.
“You know I don’t mean that.” Jinyi explained.
Yu turned away from looking at him, “Take your time to find it yourself. If you find one that suits her, take it away. Otherwise I can’t do anything about it.”
Jinyi wanted to say something, but was stopped by Yiyao, “Just pick one. I’m not the bride. Any dress is good for me. Besides, all the clothes here are beautiful.”
Yu glanced at Jinyi, “We’re friend for years, but you don’t recognize my ability in your mind.”
Jinyin didn’t know how to explain to him, so he stopped talking and concentrated on finding clothes. When he came to a compartment, he gently pushed it open.
He turned on the light and found inside a white evening gown with a back design that would show most of the woman’s skin. Then he took it out to Yiyao.
“Try this on.”
Yiyao just took it, blushing, “it is a little slutty.”
“Evening dresses are all like this.” Jinyi said.
Yiyao was doubtful, “But I just looked at other dresses that are not as slutty as this one.”
Their conversation caught Yu’s attention. He turned his head to see which one they were holding, and was shocked.
He stood up from the sofa and took the dress, “Where did you find it?”
Jinyi asked back, “Didn’t you say I could pick any dress in there?”
“I mean the clothes in here.” Yu pointed to the room and said, “I didn’t ask you to go there.”
“What’s the difference?”
“Of course it’s different. This dress is to be taken to the fashion show.” Yu said angrily,
“After she wears it, you can also take it to the show.” Jinyi said suspiciously.
“If she wears it out and gets photographed by the media, then the dress loses its meaning.” Yu explained.
“But I just think this dress is suitable for Yiyao.” Jinyi paused for a moment, and then continued, “Maybe you don’t even like the other clothes you designed.”
“What do you mean by that?” Yu was angry.
“There’s no other meaning. I just meant it literally.”
As a well-known designer, he had never been so belittled before.
“You can keep this dress. But if you want to go to a fashion show with this, it’s not enough.”
Jinyi turned around and continued to choose the dress, but Yu was not calm.
“What’s wrong?” asked Jinyi.
“Well, she can have the dress.”
Jinyi turned around and looked at him suspiciously, “Really?”
Yu nodded firmly. “I will definitely design a piece that you will not find fault with.”
Jinyi didn’t pay attention to his words and nodded, handing the dress to Yiyao. “Try it on.”
Chapter 353 They’re Reunited (2)
Yiyao Duan took the clothes and went into the fitting room. Jinyi Bai, on the other hand, sat in Yu Cheng’s seat and waited patiently.
“This dress is designed according to the proportions of a supermodel’s body. I don’t think she can wear the dress as it should be.” Yu leaned on the sofa and said with his hands on his chest.
Jinyi just sat quietly on the sofa staring at the fitting room, silent.
Ten minutes later, Jinyi got up, walked to the fitting room, and gently asked, “Yiyao, have you changed yet?”
“Yeah, I’ve changed, but ……” Yiyao stammered. Then she walked out of the fitting room wearing a white evening dress.
The shoes on her feet were the high heels from the fitting room. Although the shoes were big in size, it did not affect the overall effect with the dress.
Yu looked at her with surprise, “Is she still the bumpkin just now?”
Hearing his words, Yiyao almost fell down. “So I’ve been unfashionable in his eyes.” She thought.
She turned her head towards Jinyi. Seeing him staring at her, she shyly bowed her head.
“Yiyao, you are so beautiful.” Jinyi exclaimed. The dress set her great physical shape off to advantage.
Jinyi stared at her for a long time, and then suddenly saw the shoes on her feet. He frowned and said to Yu, “Do you have other shoes here?”
Yu gave him a cold stare, and then walked into the inner room. Not long after, he came out with a pair of shoes in his hand.
“Try this pair.”
Yiyao didn’t say anything more and took the shoes. Seeing the eight-centimeter high heels, she was startled. She thought that her feet should hurt when she wore such high shoes, but after she put on these shoes, she found it surprisingly comfortable.
Jinyi looked at her carefully, and then nodded his head in satisfaction, “We should go to do your hair next.”
Yiyao thought it was too troublesome, but she still obediently followed behind Jinyi. This time they didn’t go to a private stylist, they just went down two floors and into a hair salon.
“Sir, can we help you with anything?” They had just stepped through the door when someone greeted them.
The hair stylist brought two cups of coffee and placed a booklet in front of them.
Jinyi carefully looked at the pictures and chose hairstyle for Yiyao.
Yiyao sat opposite him, with nothing to do. She wanted to drink water, but a cup of bitter coffee in front of her.
Jinyi looked up at Yiyao from time to time while reading. When he turned to the last few pages, he stopped and pointed to a picture above and said to the hair stylist, “Just give her a haircut according to this.”
“Yes, sir.” The hairstylist made a mark on it and then led Yiyao inside. She was placed in a dressing room with mirrors all around.
Half an hour later, she was simply amazed when she saw her well-done hairstyle. Her hair was still dotted with light green flowers in between. She had never combed her hair so meticulously before.
Walking out of the room, Jinyi looked up from his book. Seeing her slowly walking towards him, he was surprised to have a momentary trance.
“How do I look?” Yiyao asked apprehensively.
“Very pretty!” said Jinyi. He was not good at saying sweet words, but he said this with all his heart. She was really pretty like this.
Yiyao pulled her dress. “This is too dressy. After all, we are just guests.”
“No, tonight you are also the main character.” Jinyi said. He reached in his suit pocket to hold a box with a ring in it.
“What?” Yiyao was puzzled. Jinyi didn’t explain. He stretched out his hand and took her hand, and then the two of them walked out of the hair salon.
In the wedding hotel, the guests have almost arrived. Jingyan Ye was preparing the wedding site. Everything was going on in an orderly manner.
He rubbed his temples and looked out the window. He didn’t know why he was a little distracted today.
“Could it be that something is going to go wrong at the wedding today?” he murmured.
“No, it won’t!” He shook his head. Unless he was the one to cancel the wedding, the wedding would definitely go ahead as planned.
Outside the door drove into a white car. Jingyan felt that it looked somewhat familiar. Seeing the car door open, he was about to take a closer look at the person getting out of the car when he got a tap on his shoulder.
“Brother, you’re here.” Yuqi Mu patted his shoulder. “Everyone is looking for you.”
Downstairs, Jinyi was the first to get out of the car and stood by the car waiting for Yiyao to get out.
Yiyao held his hand. Looking at the guests coming and going, her heart was beating fast. She had never been as flustered as she was at this moment.
“Do we have to go in?” Yiyao stopped walking and asked. The more she took a step, the more apprehensive she became, but she didn’t know why.
“Yeah, how can we attend their wedding if we don’t go in?”
Jinyi seemed to sense her uneasiness and asked her gently, “What’s wrong? Are you uncomfortable?”
Yiyao shook her head and took a deep breath at the door, “I’m fine. Let’s go in!”
Meanwhile, Jingyan and Yuqi came down from the elevator.
“Now we should go pick up the bride. I think she’s probably about to arrive at the gate.” Yuqi said excitedly.
As Jingyan hurriedly came down from the elevator, he seemed to see a familiar person. He frowned slightly. When he looked over again, he didn’t find anyone he recognized
“What’s wrong?” Yuqi asked. Seeing him stop, he couldn’t help but be a little curious. Following his gaze, he saw Yiyao. However, Jingyan had already stepped away
“What are you looking at?” Jingyan saw that he didn’t follow halfway and stopped to wait for him.
Yuqi hurriedly took a step to block his gaze and stammered, “Nothing …… time is running out.”
Speaking of time, Jingyan was also a bit anxious, so he hurried forward.
Yuqi followed him. He had never expected that Yiyao would appear here.
Now he didn’t know what to do. His only thought was that he couldn’t let JingYan see her again; otherwise he would definitely call off his wedding immediately.
All along the way Yuqi stammered. Jingyan was distracted and was even more annoyed by him.
“What do you want to say?” asked Jingyan.
“I ……” he stammered, and then asked, “What would you do? I mean if Yiyao came back?”
Jingyan, expressionless, coldly returned, “There is no such possibility. She can never come back.”
Yuqi was shivered by his gaze, lowered his head and stopped talking.
The wedding car finally returned to the hotel. Jingyan stepped down from the headmost car and stood there with his hand outstretched waiting for the bride.
Ziying Duan held his hand and walked down from the car with her head bowed, calling out lowly, “Jingyan.”
Jingyan pursed his lips without speaking, then took her waist and walked together to the hotel. Chuxue Ye followed behind them as a bridesmaid, holding the hem of her dress behind Ziying.
At this moment, Yiyao was chatting happily with Jinyi. Suddenly the lights went out, she unconsciously pulled Jinyi’s wrist.
“It’s probably the bride and groom coming.”
Soon the stage lit up with a light. Yiyao also did not pay much attention to the people on the stage. By the faint light, she found the cheesecake.
Jinyi saw that she couldn’t reach the cake, so he took it over to her.
Yiyao nodded her head in thanks. She actually didn’t like sweets either, but attending a wedding was just too boring. She really didn’t know how to pass the time.
As she was eating, she suddenly saw the groom, and then she almost fell to the ground. Fortunately Jinyi beside her helped her in time.
“Your shoes are too high? Let’s find a place to sit down.” Jinyi said.
Yiyao didn’t make any response and looked at the groom on stage again for a long time. She didn’t think she would come to Jingyan’s wedding.
“Yiyao, what’s wrong?”
Jinyi saw her staring at the groom and kept asking, “Yiyao? Are you okay?”
Yiyao didn’t respond. She only kept watching Jingyan walk away from her step by step. She wanted to reach out her hand to touch him, but found that she could not reach him at all.
On the stage, Jingyan seemed to hear someone calling “Yiyao”. He couldn’t help but frown, and then looked towards the crowd.
In the dim light, he saw her, and she was looking at him. For a moment, Jingyan suddenly stopped in his tracks.
The romantic music in the hall came to a screeching halt, and all the people were talking about what had happened. Ziying, who was beside Jingyan, also tugged his wrist uneasily.
“Jingyan, what’s wrong?”
