The crowd turned their heads around, only to be greeted by the sight of the old butler dashing into the house in a hurry from outside. There was an inexplicable fear on his haggard face.
The Su family, who understood very well how the old butler handled things, got worked up. The former master’s face darkened. He shouted loudly, “What happened to make you so nervous?? Take a look at yourself!”
After the former master yelled at him, the old butler realized he had lost his composure. However, it was the person waiting at the main entrance who refused to leave no matter what he said that had caused him to lose his cool!
“Master Su, there is a person outside.”
Right after the old butler spoke, the former master raised one of his eyebrows and snorted, “A person is outside our house? Isn’t he just a human? Look at yourself, why are you so terrified?”
“He said his surname is Ye, and he came to… propose a marriage.”
“What?!” The old butler’s words caught everyone by surprise.
“His surname is Ye? Mr. Butler, is the person called Ye Yan? What did he look like? How old is he?”
The old butler had seen Ye Yan once from afar when he was standing behind Su Jifeng that night. Despite the fact that he could not see Ye Yan clearly due to the darkness and the distance, he remembered his physique.
As such, the moment the old butler saw Ye Yan, he immediately recognized him as the man who had come to Ms. Su’s room late at night and had been personally sent out by Ms. Su. The old butler had more or less speculated on the nature of this man’s relationship with Ms. Su and the child inside her womb.
As such, the old butler was taken aback when he learned the reason for Ye Yan’s visit. This was also the reason why he had unusually lost his composure in contrast to his usual stoicism and politeness.
When he heard the crowd’s question, he dared not hide it from them and quickly told them what he had heard from Ye Yan.
“That’s right. The man looks like he is in his twenties. Besides, he said he’s called Ye Yan, and he specifically came here to propose a marriage. He also…” The old butler subconsciously looked at Su He before he continued, “He also said he wanted to marry Ms. Su.”
“My foot! Does he really think that he can simply marry my younger sister?! Get that arsehole out… Ouch!”
Before Su Jifeng finished speaking, he was slapped hard and he wrapped his hands around his head as he cried out.
“Why did you curse again, huh? You rascal, did you only learn the bad from your father and not the good?! Are you turning a dear ear to my words?!”
“Mother, there’s a lot of people around here! At the very least, you should give me some honor…”
Before Su Jifeng finished speaking, his mother had already glared at him and he was rendered speechless. He then timidly stood at the side.
“When you speak of the devil, he appears.” The former master swept his gaze across Zhao Youlin and the rest of her gang as he said in a thought-provoking manner.
Jiang Wenfang creased her eyebrows as she looked at her dumbfounded daughter. For a moment, she did not know how to decide on this. “Father, we…”
The former master of the family saw his granddaughter’s reaction. Upon hearing his daughter-in-law’s question, he said calmly, “The person purposefully came down here to propose marriage. It’s unreasonable for so many people to stop him out there. Go over to him and lead him in. Let us take a look at the young man who caused my granddaughter to become pregnant and then had the audacity to propose on our doorstep!”
The latter sentence was spoken to the old butler. The old butler received his instruction and quickly ran outside.
Su He was struck dumb as soon as she heard that Ye Yan came to propose marriage. She was still caught in a quandary.
While the crowd was gathering their attention on Ye Yan, Zhao Youlin seized the opportunity and pulled Mu Tingfeng to the side. She whispered to him, “Isn’t it all too coincidental for Ye Yan to propose a marriage at this moment when the former master and the rest of his group are gathered around today?”
Mu Tingfeng cast a profound glance at Zhao Youlin before he said profoundly, “Perhaps, it’s not a coincidence at all.”
“Not a coincidence?” Zhao Youlin cocked one of her eyebrows.
They had received the news about the return of the former master of the family, Jiang Wenfang and Su Liqiang from Su Jifeng. With the former master’s current identity, they were unlikely to make a public announcement about his return.
As such, not many people were aware of their return. Also, there were very few people who knew about the incident and Ye Yan’s presence.
As they thought about this, Zhao Youlin inadvertently cast a glance at Su Jifeng. When she noticed the obvious hint of anger on his face, she immediately came to a conclusion and ruled out the possibility of him tipping off the news.
If it was not Su Jifeng, who else could the person be?
Zhao Youlin was deep in thought as she stroked her chin. She abruptly recalled something. Her pupils shrank, and she quickly turned around and looked at Mu Tingfeng.
“Did you…” If she remembered correctly, when they received Su Jifeng’s call and were about to rush over to the Su family, Mu Tingfeng had made a call before he got into the car.
At that time, he had been far away from her, so she could not hear his conversation with the person on the other end of the line. Now, as she thought of this, Mu Tingfeng could have been…
Mu Tingfeng did not respond to her. However, the ripples of water in his eyes had already betrayed him.
Zhao Youlin was enraged. This guy used to say that he did not approve of Su He and Ye Yan. In private, however, he had secretly conspired with Ye Yan and even leaked the news to him! She had been completely wrong about him! Darn this stoic-looking man!
No matter how unhappy Zhao Youlin was, she had to admit that Ye Yan had come at the right time. Furthermore, his reason for coming was unusual. In fact, his reason was unusually… shameless.
The Su family’s opinion of Ye Yan was neither too positive nor too negative. As a result, Ye Yan’s shamelessness may give the impression that he was a responsible man. After all, Ye Yan was the only one who had the audacity to come over and propose marriage after getting the Su family’s young lady pregnant!
The old butler did not let the crowd wait for long. In just a while, the crowd saw the old butler and a young man approaching them from afar.
Knowing that the young man behind the old butler was the main culprit who got their daughter (granddaughter) to become pregnant, the elders critically sized up the approaching young man in unison.
Ye Yan was dressed in a pure white Armani custom-made suit today. His suit was well-tailored, with smooth lines that gave him the appearance of not being too striking but luxurious. In fact, Ye Yan’s best qualities were brought out by the suit.
With Ye Yan’s harmless appearance and his freshly cut short hair, he appeared to be the so-called successful young man with a lack of experience but appeared to be more vital and energetic. He could easily attract those who have an overabundance of maternal love.
On top of that, Ye Yan held a large bouquet of roses in his hand. He wore a solemn expression.. Even if the old butler had not briefed the crowd, the crowd could guess his intention for the day.
