Chapter: 2569

Ning Yuan sat in the front passenger seat, her slender fingers gripping the seatbelt tightly. Every few seconds, she would glance at the man with the cold expression.

She could feel that Yu Guan’s last words had made him unhappy.

With his ability, it was easy for him to investigate her family’s situation.

But he had never checked on her.

This was his respect for people’s privacy as a prince.

Ning Yuan was very grateful to him for this.

No one was willing to expose their embarrassment to others, especially to the person they cared about and liked.

Ye Yu noticed Ning Yuan’s gaze and glanced at her. "Is there anything you want to say to me?"

Ning Yuan pursed her red lips tightly. "I’m not ready to be honest with you, but I promise that it’s not about other men in my heart. It’s about my family."

"I hope you can continue to respect me. I will confess to you when I’m ready."

Ye Yu looked at the woman who looked sad and careful. He freed one hand from the steering wheel and held her slender hand, saying in a low voice, "Okay."

Hearing his words, Ning Yuan heaved a sigh of relief.

His calloused fingers rubbed lightly on her hand and his eyes on her darkened. "What else did Yu Guan do to you?"

Ning Yuan smirked. "I’ve always been a magnanimous person. Do you remember when I took your motorboat once, you didn’t cherish me at all and threw me into the sea?"

At the mention of this, the man did not look guilty at all. He snorted with a dark expression. "You’re wearing so little and sitting behind a man. Do you think every man is a saint?"

Ning Yuan was stunned for a few seconds before she understood what he meant.

"You… had feelings for me then?" Perhaps his words pleased her, she could not help but laugh. The smile on her bright face was even more dazzling, and even her eyes could not help but smile.

Ye Yu’s expression darkened. "You’re thinking too much."

"Hmph, you clearly meant that just now." Ning Yuan blinked at him. "Do you remember the first time we met? I was performing on stage and accidentally fell on you."

Ye Yu snorted, his eyes clearly questioning her if she did it on purpose.

After the car drove for a distance, Ye Yu’s phone vibrated and connected to the bluetooth in the car. When he answered the call, Ning Yuan could hear it.

"Second Brother, your Brother Chi suddenly called me today and asked me to arrange a meeting tonight. Did something happen for him to suddenly come?"

The Brother Chi Feng Chen was talking about was Ye Yanfeng and Shangguan Wan’s eldest son, Ye Chi.

She had lived with her parents at Yukou Border since she was young and was now the leader of Yukou Border.

Usually, he would only return to the royal family when there was an important banquet or reporting work in the palace.

When Ye Yu was training in the training camp, he had gone to Yukou Border for a period of time and was not unfamiliar with Brother Ye Chi.

However, it was a little strange that he did not contact Brother and him this time and went to find Feng Chen.

"Second Brother, did you hear me? Can you come over tonight? I feel a little scared, as if I’ve done something wrong to Prince Chi!"

"Oh right, you can bring your family."

After hanging up, Ye Yu glanced at Ning Yuan.

Ning Yuan immediately shook her head. "I’m not going. If you’re in a hurry, drop me by the roadside and I’ll take a taxi back."

Ye Yu pursed his lips tightly and said nothing. He turned the steering wheel and stopped the car by the roadside.

Ning Yuan pushed open the door, wanting to get out.

But she could not push him away.

Ning Yuan looked at the man in confusion. "You locked the car."

Ye Yu habitually took a cigarette and put it to his lips, but seemed to have thought of something and took it out.

He looked at the woman beside him with a dark expression. "Why? You don’t want to integrate into my circle?"

To be honest, she really did not want to integrate into his circle and felt that she was incompatible with his friends.

Now that she was pregnant before marriage, in the eyes of others, she was a vixen who wanted to climb up the ranks.

Ning Yuan lowered her thick and long feathers and said softly, "I’m afraid of embarrassing you."

The moment she finished speaking, the man reached out his long arm and pulled her into his arms.

He patted the top of her head. "Silly woman."

Ning Yuan looked up from his shoulder and looked at his well-defined side profile. "Do you really want me to go?"

"What’s the point of being at home alone?"

Ning Yuan smiled. "Alright, but I have to go back and change and put on makeup first."

"It’s not an official banquet venue, there’s no need."

Without waiting for Ning Yuan to say anything, the man put on his seatbelt again and started the engine and left.

Feng Chen arranged for the gathering to be at the clubhouse. When Ning Yuan was led in by Ye Yu, there were already many people sitting in the room.

Ning Yuan glanced inside. The men were all dressed formally and the women present were all dressed up.

She was the only one who looked out of place in a loose white knitted shirt and black pants.

She pinched Ye Yu’s palm.

She was about to say something when the washroom door was opened.

"Second Brother, you’re here?" Hearing Ye Ze’s voice, Ning Yuan secretly retracted her hand from Ye Yu’s large palm.

Why was there Ye Ze in the gathering? Was he not going abroad to work?

When Ye Ze came out, his eyes widened in surprise when he found that not only was Ye Yu here, but also Ning Yuan.

"Young Master Feng, are you giving me a surprise?" Ye Ze went forward and opened his arms, wanting to give Ning Yuan a big hug. Before he could touch her, he was separated by a slender and cold hand.

Seeing the man pushing him, Ye Ze frowned. "Second Brother, what are you doing? I haven’t seen Ning Yuan for a long time. Why are you pushing me?"

Feng Chen was still worried about Ye Chi looking for him later. When he saw the scene at the door, he hurried over and pulled Ye Ze away.

"This is your second brother’s woman. What surprise did I give you?"

"What?" Ye Ze looked like he had been struck by lightning. He looked at Ye Yu and then at Ning Yuan. "You’re having an affair?"

Ning Yuan furrowed her eyebrows. "Young Master Ze, did you forget that I told you before that the person I like has the word ‘Ye’ in his name? He’s your second brother!"

Hearing this, Ye Ze was confused.

Some images that he did not understand before suddenly flashed past his mind. Now, he understood everything.

It was no wonder he went to Country X to look for Ning Yuan. Second Brother was furious when he saw him and was suddenly transferred abroad to work. It turned out that he had become Second Brother’s love rival!

"You actually hid it from me for so long. It’s so infuriating!"

"What’s too infuriating?" A noble voice with a smile sounded from the door.
