Rejecting the Big Shot - Chapter 3.2
The Yi family had been the family with the highest social status when they were still in Q City. Now in B City, they were quickly gaining momentum and the usher would naturally recognize the face of the Yi family’s only son.
He hurried forward, but the car window still didn’t roll down. This was when the usher noticed the sleeping figure in the passenger seat. Most of his face was covered by the sleeping mask, only revealing his pretty pointed chin.
“Quickly, invite the VIP in!”
The usher had no intention to knock on the window and annoy Young Master Yi. He immediately got the security to give way and let the car through.
“Eh? Why this car……” The security guards were puzzled.
Guests all had to walk on the long red carpets that were lined from the main gate to the front door of the mansion. The guests that had arrived in cars earlier had all disembarked in front of the red carpet and walked in on foot, their cars parked in the large car park near the front gate.
But this Maybach was allowed to be driven in. The usher didn’t even bother to explain to the driver that the car should be stopped, and directly invited him in.
As a result, the security guards could only look on helplessly.
Under the lights placed on both sides of the gorgeous red carpet which was currently being crushed under wheels, the silver and black Maybach made its way in.
The usher was busy using his communication device to relay information about the arrival of the Young Master from the Yi family to his colleagues in the mansion and ignored the security guards, not giving them any explanations.
This made the puzzlement of the security guards deepen.
The arrival of this Young Master Yi could cause so much excitement?
They were wholly unaware that in the banquet hall inside the mansion, Young Master Yi’s arrival caused a bigger commotion when compared to their end.
“Someone from the Yi family is here? This is a real VIP……”
“This is so rare!”
This news spread through the brightly lit banquet hall. Originally, the elegant guests who were conversing with each other in soft voices had started to raise their voices in surprise, causing the music-filled banquet hall to start to sound noisy.
Bai Song was also in the banquet hall and naturally heard everything clearly.
In order to attend this banquet, Bai Song naturally skipped the night revision class and left school early. His parents had just brought him around and introduced him to quite a number of guests.
However, the high social status of tonight’s guests, especially those in the VIP room, had pre-determined their attitudes and they were lukewarm in their response to Bai Song’s parents.
After all, the Bai family’s riches actually came from the current head of the family, Bai Gelei, and Bai Song’s family were just relatives.
But Bai Song knew that this was a rare chance to meet so many important people. No matter, he was still a member of the Bai family.
Unlike the imposter who had been chased out.
Bai Song smiled coldly once his thoughts turned to Bo Xiyun.
Snippets of conversations around him mentioned Young Master Yi repeatedly. Bai Song knew that the Bai Enterprise was considered a leader in Q City, thus tonight’s invited guests were frontrunners in their own industries.
And even these people who were already considered elites were in awe of the Yi family.
Quite a number of people attending this banquet had received help from the Yi family in some form or another.
Praises sounded out within these conversations as they talked about Young Master Yi.
“It should be the Yi family’s son who is here, the one who just enrolled in T University last year?”
“Right, good in studies and mature, it will be hard to predict how far he can go in the future!”
“Young Master Yi resembles Mr. Yi, both are very handsome……”
Bai Song was waiting for this opportunity.
He took the chance to raise his voice, talking to the people around him. “Young Master Yi is such an excellent young man, yet someone tried to overreach himself and get his attention, what a joke.”
Surrounding Bai Song was his usual lackeys and they immediately coordinated with him after hearing his words.
“Who are you talking about, perhaps it’s that imposter?”
“Of course, it’s him,” Bai Song laughed, “Everyone knows Young Master Yi has placed all his concentration on his studies and hates being involved in gossip and scandal, Bo Xiyun still went on to disturb him, I can feel it must be annoying for Young Master Yi.”
They continued their topic, each picking up from the others’ sentences without controlling their volume. Very quickly, they started to get attention from the people around them as their topic included Young Master Yi.
And thus, everyone now knew of this incident—
The imposter that was just chased out of the Bai family was so delusional that he tried to pursue Young Master Yi.
Bai Song’s mood lifted further as eyes congregated on him.
He knew that these guests would not blindly believe what they had just heard, but he only wanted to let them be aware of this rumor to let them have a faint impression.
Things would only truly get exciting when the incident in school that evening was made known to all.
Lost in his thoughts, a cold smile surfaced on Bai Song’s face.
Bo Xiyun will be subjected to utter scorn and humiliation.
Right, why was there no news from school?
Bai Song checked his mobile phone but there were no unread messages.
It would be rude to use his mobile phone as the banquet was still ongoing, so he decided to wait before contacting the other person.
Bai Song and his lackeys continued their topic, fleshing out their conversation with news of how Bo Xiyun’s secret infatuation was discovered and how he tried to meet Young Master Yi, until others in the banquet started repeating their words.
The hall finally quietened down when the head of the Bai family appeared.
Bai Gelei had made an appearance.
Bai Gelei was a tall man with strides that seemed to bring the wind. His expensive three-piece hid some of his bold imposing manners while giving him a little aristocratic air.
Guests started greeting him when he entered the hall. Bai Gelei nodded his head in response with a calm demeanor as an authoritative aura surrounded him.
His secretary came over and Bai Gelei asked,” Young Master Yi is here?”
The secretary nodded, “He is preparing to stop his car at the entrance and will be here in a minute or two.”
Hearing this, the banquet guests finally confirmed that Young Master Yi was there.
They were all amazed.
“Is he here specially to congratulate the Bai family on finding their son?”
“Young Master Yi hasn’t been back in Q City for some time, at least half a year?”
“Being able to successfully invite someone from the Yi family, must be because it is Mr. Bai!”
Bai Gelei’s expression was stern and he didn’t express his thoughts.
But anyone could see he was satisfied with this praise.
“Inform Xiao Xiu,” Bai Gelei turned to his secretary. “Let him prepare and make an appearance quickly, do not let Young Master Yi wait.”
“Yes, I will inform him now.” The secretary concurred.
After giving his instructions, Bai Gelei turned and walked towards the main door.
This banquet hall was the second-story living room in a duplex mansion, the main doors of the mansion were also the doors to the banquet hall.
Seeing this, the guests followed Bai Gelei towards the door.
They didn’t wait too long to see the highly anticipated Young Master Yi.
A “click” sound rang out and the carved wooden doors were slowly pushed open. An usher walked right in front, bringing with him the tall and straight slender figure behind.
The surrounding guests raised their heads in that direction and saw the young man holding a wide umbrella himself without any help from the usher. Under the umbrella, his handsome features were cool, his indifferent eyes deep and cold.
He seemed to have brought the cold and rainy winter night in when he walked into the hall.
But what shocked everyone the most was the figure beside Yi Zhongshen.
Under the eyes of the crowd—
Young Master Yi personally held the umbrella and sheltered someone in the hall.
