Chapter 17 Ye Huai
Wang Xueqing immediately grabbed Su Nian’er, her usual peaceful expression changing to give the other a sharp look. Su Nian’er’s heart was shocked and she immediately became speechless and tightly shut up, no longer making any noises.
Wang Xueqing’s face then returned to normal. She apologized to the strange man again and then picked up her things, turned around and left without even the slightest pause.
Almost as if nothing had happened at all.
Unfortunately, Ye Huai was extremely sharp-eared. He perceived the moods that transmitted between the two and heard everything the long-haired girl had said.
However, the amount of information was really too much. The unrestrained and accomplished Ye family’s third young master at this moment was a little shocked.
What do you mean “this is the father of that beautiful child?”
What was this trying to imply? Ye family’s third young master, who had entanglements and complications with women from birth, was frozen. You don’t want to be such a scammer, do you? If what she said was taken literally, wouldn’t that mean that he had accidentally become a father?
He was shocked! Completely shocked! For the first time in his life, the peerless Ye family’s third young master now understood what it felt to be shocked. This piece of new information was going to toss him to death.
No, no, Ye Huai quickly calmed down, it was not a matter of carelessness, it needed to be clarified! It was related to his good life in the future. If the old man knew that he had a grandson, he would have to thoroughly say goodbye to all the lovers in his life. Letting him keep the same woman all day long, it would be better to die!
Although Wang Xueqing’s face was neutral, her heart was stormy. The delicate eyebrow, eyes, nose bridge and mouth were all too similar. If someone says there was no blood relationship, who would believe it?
But Xiao Yuanzhe was Yuan Xi’s son. How could he be so similar to another man? Wang Xueqing pondered for a day, thinking about good and bad things. At last, she even thought of Yuan Xi’s potential abduction of other people’s children.
However, she had always been thoughtful. Yuan Xi had never mentioned anything about Xiao Yuanzhe’s mother so they don’t know what the situation was, but it probably was not a very good thing. The relationship between their family and Yuan Xi was good so naturally they would not harm him. Wang Xueqing regretted it and she blamed herself for being too careless.
She really liked Xiao Yuanzhe. Her mobile phone was full of adorable photos of the little guy. She was accidentally seen by Su Nian ‘er. Su Nian ‘er couldn’t help but ask some questions. Xiao Yuanzhe was liked by people. Wang Xueqing was delighted that she couldn’t help but talk a little more. She talked about how lovely and beautiful the child was.
This time she actually encountered an enlarged version of Xiao Yuanzhe, but really…
Wang Xueqing was upset but she didn’t panic. Instead, she immediately went to Su Nian’er and told her not to talk about it. She made up a story about the attack of a scumbag man who cried ghosts and gods.
Su Nian’er’s character was a silly elder sister type. Otherwise, she would not have said it so quickly. When she heard Wang Xueqing saying that, she also regretted her big mouth but swore that she would never let out any details. She could not let the slag man look into it or the consequences would be unimaginable! But how could he be so handsome… Ah, it’s really a waste of beauty…
Wang Xueqing went home and told Wang Qingnian what happened and she also told him what she had done. Wang Qingnian was very relieved by his daughter’s actions. Although she has been thinking by herself, she was very capable of making appropriate decisions on major issues. In case of an accident, it would be reasonable that she couldn’t react at first but she didn’t reveal any more words afterwards.
Wang Xueqing asked Wang Qingnian, “Do you want to tell Yuan Xi about this?”
Wang Qingnian thought for a moment and said, “I’ll tell your Uncle Yuan tomorrow to let them know.”
Wang Xueqing nodded.
In the evening, Wang Xueqing looked at the photos and images of Xiao Yuanzhe on her mobile phone. She hesitated and did not want to delete them. However, she could not put them on her mobile phone so she moved it into a hidden storage device and saved them.
Wang Xueqing was indeed a thoughtful girl and was also safe in her actions. It’s reasonable to say that her actions were already in place. Unfortunately, she didn’t understand the origin of who the opposite party was.
Ye Huai recalled Wang Xueqing’s last look and knew it would not be easy to start with the girl, but there were more tricks in the dark than in the bright.
It didn’t take long for him to get the photos and images carefully hidden by Wang Xueqing, successfully intercepting the message sent by Wang Qingnian to Yuan Yucheng [HP] and reading the full text.
When he saw the pictures, he was completely shocked.
If this child was not of the Ye family, he would not bother his father, and break his own leg!
This face, wasn’t it too similar!
His eldest brother was only fond of men and would definitely not be able to have a child while Ye Huai himself was a notorious philanderer. It was very obvious how the child came out.
Ye Huai’s regret was that he always met with ghosts after walking through the night. He had always been careful and cautious. How could he have planted it?
He stared at the pictures and images. The child inside looked about two or three months old. He was a fair and cute little baby.
For two or three months, he carefully recalled his love affairs. Xiao Hong, Xiao Hua, Xiao Min, Xiao Li, Xiao Jie, Xiao Cai… going over all of them, just who was it!
Damn, this was really a big play. Ye Huai couldn’t sit still. He immediately booked a ticket to the Blue Star for tomorrow. He wanted to see the child, his mother and who it was!
Before he left, he hurriedly went to find his eldest brother. His eldest brother was a real workaholic. He didn’t even have to think about where he was at that time. He was at headquarters.
Pushing through the door and rushing in, his eldest brother asked him without looking up, “What’s wrong again?”
This matter was still uncertain and he didn’t dare to say it out loud, so he just daringly said, “I’m going to travel far away.”
Ye Heng stopped his work, looked at him, and asked, “Where are you going?”
Ye Huai did not dare to say his destination so he only said vaguely, “Brother, don’t ask. I have something, something important, it’s something important, not for fun.”
What he said was vague and his eyes dodged. Ye Heng was interested in seeing him like that. “Why? Is this an admission that you used to go out to play? “
Ye Huai was used to being arrogant outside, but he was only afraid of his father, his mother, and his brother. At that moment, he was even more haunted. Finally, he lowered his charming head and softly said, “I, I… will work hard in the second half of the year and will not go anywhere!”
It was really hard for the Ye third young master to spit such words out of his mouth.
Ye Heng had a lot of things to do on hand and had no time to amuse him. Ye Huai had long been an adult. Although he was a bit bohemian on the surface and informal, he still had his own ideas on business. Ye Heng didn’t worry about him very much, and just left it and said, “Come back early, don’t delay on Dad’s birthday.”
Ye Huai nodded and left.
Yuan Xi knew nothing about what happened on the remote Beijing star. He was busy preparing for the harvest.
Under normal circumstances, wheat would mature 3 to 5 days earlier than rice. This interval was convenient for harvesting crops as it would not cause delay and would minimize mistakes.
However, Yuan Xi was in some trouble this time. He just caught up with the maturity of the white crystal. In this way, he would inevitably be in a hurry.
Wheat harvesting could be fully mechanized but it also needed to be watched carefully, especially since this was the first time he had harvested wheat since taking over. Naturally, he should pay more attention to it to avoid any mistakes.
On the white crystal’s side, it was the most labour-intensive, if he was even a little careless, the loss would be even greater.
Fortunately, Yuan Yucheng was there. Yuan Xi discussed with Yuan Yucheng and finally set Yuan Yucheng to look at the harvest of the white crystal. But Yuan Xi hired more people this time and resolutely refused to let Yuan Yucheng go to the fields. Yuan Yucheng couldn’t move Yuan Xi’s opinion and so could only acquiesce..
Yuan Xi took care of the wheat. Zhao Zhao rushed to help and was slapped back by Yuan Xi. Zhao Zhao’s family was also harvesting. He was not busying at home and ran here to help him instead.
Although Zhao Zhao’s father didn’t expect him to help either, if he could go home and even help a little, he as a father would be happy. Yuan Xi promised to teach Zhao Zhao a few tricks after the harvest so the boy went home to work.
Cai Wen, a former neighbour of Yuan Xi’s family who lived on the Blue Star together with them, learned that Yuan Xi’s family had bought a farm, so he took the initiative and asked to come to work. He was smart and hardworking, but he was a little younger. However, his family had a lot of expenses. He came to Qinghe Farm to work as a temporary worker during the holiday. It was also a good thing for him to earn some extra money.
Yuan Xi naturally wouldn’t refuse, and because Cai Wen was anxious about Yuan Yucheng’s car accident before, he had always been grateful in his heart, so he always pointed out Cai Wen intentionally or unintentionally. Cai Wen wanted to learn from him and Yuan Xi taught him how to do things easily.
Yuan Xi has taken care of a batch of white crystal stones before, but the accumulated proficiency of the planting technique was too slow. When he first harvested the white crystal, he gained 30 proficiency points. The second time, it was only 10, which was really pitiful.
This time, if he switched to harvesting wheat, he might get more proficiency. However, this time it was all mechanical harvesting. It was also a matter of whether the proficiency would be accumulated…
However, there was no other way to do it either. As the crops mature, it would not wait for anyone. In the end, the wheat harvest would be delayed and the rice harvest would also be delayed, in a series. It would be too uneconomical to move back the harvest this year.
The rented machinery was commonly used and the three long-term workers were used to it. They were very skilled. Yuan Xi didn’t go to the fields and just looked. The machinery was far more advanced than the harvester he saw in his last life. It was a complete one-stop service, clean and fast.
As long as one walked over, not only was the wheat well harvested, not even the stems of the wheat would stick out. All one had to do was wait to fertilize and plant again, which was very convenient.
Yuan Xi thought to himself, thinking that when he has money, he would definitely buy a whole set of equipment by himself.
Because it was mechanical harvesting, the wheat took only one morning to finish. Then everyone was busy planting in the afternoon and everything was all done in a day.
Yuan Xi was also delighted to find that although he did not go to the fields, his proficiency increased by 30 points. Was it possible that mechanization and employment of workers could also gain proficiency?
This was a pleasant surprise.
The next day, everyone started to prepare to harvest the rice. It was also mechanized and it was a neat, simple and quick process.
After that, Yuan Xi went to the place where the white crystals were to collect the last part of the harvest and was busy until it was dark. The crops were completely harvested.
Looking at the heavy wheat, snow-white rice, and full-sized white crystal, Yuan Xi was very satisfied, though tired.
After shipment, the planting area would be free and need not be maintained all the time.
Yuan Yucheng and Yuan Xi were busy those days. Now that they were free, Yuan Xi suggested that the family go out for a day or two.
This was Blue Star. He hasn’t seen its beautiful scenery yet.
Lin Suyun and Yuan Yucheng naturally agreed and although Xiao Yuanzhe wasn’t able to speak yet, he was already five months old, so it should be fine to take him out to play.
So, the next day Yuan Xi went to the farm to explain, and the family began to pack.
But before they even got a chance to leave, they were found.
