In the innermost seat in the coffee shop, Xia Ning walked over and saw the woman on the couch. She was stirring a cup of coffee with her head down. She looked well maintained as if she was only in her forties. Her movements were very elegant and gentle.
Was this Qiao Yu’s mother?
She could have said no to Qiao Yu’s mother’s invite. After all, she had nothing to do with Qiao Yu anymore. It was not her obligation to hear from a stranger. But, maybe she still felt discontent.
Gao Wanhua noticed someone walking over. She looked up and saw Xia Ning at once.
She frowned a little. Even though she had seen this person on TV and in person, she had to admit that she was beautiful, young and brave. She looked very bright.
Gao Wanhua stood up and nodded to Xia Ning. “Miss Xia!”
Xia Ning took off her sunglasses and smiled at her slightly. “Nice to meet you, Madam Qiao.”
Her smile was very light as if the person in front of her had nothing to do with her. It was indeed like that. They had nothing to do with each other.
“Please sit!” Gao Wanhua raised her hand and made a gesture.
Xia Ning nodded and sat across her. She ordered a coffee.
Neither of the two spoke. They were drinking their own coffee and the air was a bit stuffy.
Gao Wanhua put down her cup and looked at the young girl across her. “This seems to be my first time meeting you, Miss Xia,” she said.
Xia Ning smiled slightly. “Madam Qiao, you are right. This is indeed our first time.”
Gao Wanhua nodded. “In fact, I’ve been very curious about what Enoch’s mother is like.”
Xia Ning moved her lips. “So are you disappointed now, Madam?”
Gao Wanhua darted a look at Xia Ning. “To be honest, I am very.”
“Really?” Xia Ning smiled. There was no sign of anger on her face at all, as if it was not her who Gao Wanhua was talking about.
Gao Wanhua saw Xia Ning’s careless attitude and frowned a little. “Miss Xia you should know why I came for you today.”
Xia Ning smiled slightly. “I really don’t know. After all, why would someone like Madam Qiao want to see a nameless actress like me?”
Gao Wanhua frowned even more and said calmly, “I did not know you married Yu at all.” If it was not for his son to explain Enoch’s identity to her that day, she would probably be misunderstanding this forever.
“Why would you know this kind of tiny matter, Madam Qiao?” Xia Ning smiled slightly and there was no other emotion on her face.
Gao Wanhua stared at Xia Ning and said in a low voice, “Had I known earlier, I would never let him marry you.”
“Isn’t it the same now? We’re divorced. As you wish!”
Gao Wanhua’s hand on the coffee cup stopped. She looked at the girl in the front. Her undisturbed attitude was really surprising. Her instinct was telling her this was not a simple woman.
Well, how could a woman who made her cold son care be a simple one?
The two fell into a brief silence again.
Xia Ning took the coffee cup and sipped some coffee. She looked around at the people moving around in the shop and said suddenly, “In fact, I was not surprised to see you at all.”
Gao Wanhua looked up at Xia Ning and did not talk. Obviously, she wanted to hear more.
Xia Ning curled her lips and looked at Gao Wanhua. “You probably don’t know, but I’ve imagined so many times about meeting you.” As a daughter-in-law.
