Ye Qianqian gazed at him with red eyes and asked, “You really don’t believe it?”

“I don’t. We’re now in the era of science. What us is there in believing all this gibberish?” Shen Zhilie placed his hand on her shoulders in consolation.

No one knew if Uncle Blind Man could understand what Shen Zhilie was saying, but just as Shen Zhilie uttered these words, Uncle Blind Man laughed and said, “I didn’t say anything at all.”

Ye Qianqian had almost been on the brink of a breakdown, but when she heard his laughter, she suddenly recovered her composure. Looking at Uncle Blind Man, Ye Qianqian asked, “Uncle…”

Uncle Blind Man’s reply was still the same word. “Fate.”

Ye Qianqian grew even more uncertain. But regardless of what she asked and how she rephrased her question, Uncle Blind Man refused to say anything else.

The woman at the side couldn’t bear to continue watching, and said, “If he were willing to give you an answer, he would have already done so. He likely has his reason for not saying anything. Young lady, please don’t press him any further.”

Although Ye Qianqian was unsatisfied with the outcome, she had no choice but to leave it as it was. In actual fact, she had just been seeking some reassurance.

When Ye Qianqian and Shen Zhilie left Uncle Blind Man’s place and returned home, Ye Zhenhua was already done preparing lunch. Upon seeing them return, he brought out the last dish to the dining table and said, “Tongtong came just now.”

Ye Qianqian was stunned.

“Why did she come?” Shen Zhilie asked in return.

“To look for Qianqian.” Ye Zhenhua turned to Ye Qianqian and said, “I told her that I’d let you know, and if you were free after lunch, you’d drop by her shop.”

It was currently the New Year period, and many people had returned to their hometowns. Fang Tongtong’s shop enjoyed very brisk business during this period, and naturally, she wouldn’t be able to leave the shop.

Ye Qianqian nodded her head in understanding and replied, “All right. Got it.”

Shen Zhilie headed into the kitchen to wash his hands and brought the bowls and utensils out. He glanced at Ye Qianqian and asked, “You’re really going?”

“Yeah, I’m going. I’ll go on my own. You can stay here,” Ye Qianqian said to Shen Zhilie.

But Shen Zhilie frowned and replied, “No way. Didn’t her incident happen on the way from your house to hers? I’ll go with you later.”

Ye Qianqian was at a loss for how to convince him otherwise. “It’s fine,” she insisted. “I’ll go by the main road. There are plenty of people around. There’s nothing to worry about.”

“No.” Shen Zhilie remained adamant. “I’ll go with you.”

“All right.” Ye Qianqian couldn’t change his mind and added, “I just think that if we go together, it’ll make things really awkward.”

“What’s there to be awkward about?” Shen Zhilie suddenly remembered something as he asked this. “Oh, yeah. We’re getting married.”

“I wasn’t referring to that…”

“When you broke up with me, I gave Fang Tongtong a call,” Shen Zhilie said as he scooped the rice into everyone’s bowls and finally sat down.

Ye Qianqian blinked her eyes and felt a little uneasy. What did he mean when he said ‘when you broke up with me?’” she thought.

If she hadn’t received the wrong impression and thought he was cheating on her with Fang Tongtong, that never would have happened!

But she decided to let it slide and instead asked, “And what happened after that?”

“After that, I said some horrible things. If I were to go, it would probably get a little awkward.” Shen Zhilie picked up his chopsticks and placed some food into Ye Qianqian’s bowl. “Eat up,” he said.

Ye Qianqian stared at the food in her bowl and asked suspiciously, “What did you say?”

Given Shen Zhilie’s personality, how bad could it have been?

Shen Zhilie looked a little embarrassed. He cleared his throat and replied, “I told her that when you and I got married in the future, I wouldn’t send her an invitation, and she wouldn’t be allowed to attend.”
