Chapter 118 — Engagement Banquet
Early in the morning, Ye Fan, under the escort of many people, went to the Bai residence to give the betrothal gifts.
Bai Shiyuan hid the betrothal gifts and did not open it for anyone to see. He only took out ten gold cards saying they were good things, each one containing 100 million yuan. So the news that Ye Fan had offered a bride price of one billion spread, and a group of people praised Ye Fan’s generosity.
Xiao Chi walked into the house and asked, “It’s very lively outside, aren’t you going out?”
Bai Shiyuan waved his hand and said angrily, “No, I’m not going out!”
“What’s the matter?”
Bai Shiyuan took out two golden turtles from the box, “Ye Fan sent them here! He actually sent two of them, I don’t know what this stinky boy is thinking.”
The corners of Xiao Chi’s mouth twitched and he said, “This should be pure gold, a good thing! Ye Fan is willing to give it, you can just keep it.”
If someone else did this, Xiao Chi would have responded differently, but it was from Ye Fan! Since it was Ye Fan’s work, Xiao Chi didn’t find it strange at all. On the contrary, if Ye Fan didn’t send some strange things, Xiao Chi would feel strange.
Bai Shiyuan rolled his eyes and said, “Ye Fan, this stinky boy, if he doesn’t make me angry, he will not be happy!”
“A thousand year old kingfisher, a ten thousand year old turtle, he’s wishing you a long life,” Xiao Chi said.
“What wishing me a long life! What do you know? This tortoise proves that he is the golden tortoise son-in-law!” Bai Shiyuan said angrily.
Xiao Chi: “…”
When Bai Yunjin came back and said that Ye Fan intended to send the turtle, he thought that Bai Yunjin was joking, but he didn’t expect it to be true. Yunjin was also really… he didn’t even give a word of advise.
Ye Fan took the wine glass and walked with Bai Yunxi, “Your grandfather is really strange. He didn’t even want to show the betrothal gifts. Besides the card, I also gave many other things.”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
“If grandpa doesn’t want to show it to people, then don’t show it,” Bai Yunxi said.
“But, in addition to the cards, I also sent some other things, he should show it off!” Ye Fan said.
Bai Yunxi rolled his eyes and said angrily, “My grandfather likes to be low-key, he doesn’t like to show off.”
Ye Fan said in surprise: “I didn’t see it! The old man is quite restrained…”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
The engagement banquet of Bai Yunxi and Ye Fan was very lively. Many dignitaries in Beijing attended the engagement banquet, and Xu Yuanqing and Tang Yuxuan also attended the engagement banquet.
This engagement banquet allowed Ye Fan to fulfill his ultimate dream in life, to receive gifts with soft hands.
The engagement of Bai Yunxi was abuzz in the upper-class world. Although many people didn’t know what Mr. Bai was thinking, marrying Bai Yunxi to Ye Fan, but they still expressed their blessings.
Ye Fan walked among the guests proudly, and many people who saw Ye Fan came up to toast, and Ye Fan did not refuse anyone who came.
Xiao Chi looked at Ye Fan, frowned, and said, “Yunxi, do you want to stop him? This guy Ye Fan has been drinking a lot!”
Thinking of Ye Fan’s drunkenness, Xiao Chi couldn’t help but have some lingering fears.
Bai Yunxi frowned and said, “No, let him go, it’s rare.” Bai Yunxi looked at the tranquility amulet hidden in his sleeve, and secretly said: If this guy Ye Fan becomes drunk after a while, he will post this on Ye Fan’s forehead. He just doesn’t know if this talisman can restrain Ye Fan.
Ye Fan was surrounded by a bunch of people, and a bunch of people were eager to toast with Ye Fan. Ye Fan’s eyes were bright, and he drank a dozen bottles of Maotai, but he still didn’t look drunk at all.
“Young Master Ye, your alcohol tolerance is really good!”
Ye Fan was embraced by the crowd, and he was instantly full of pride.
Ye Fan staggered around in the middle of the hall.
“Young Master Ye, you have a good alcohol tolerance!”
Ye Fan drank a bit too much and saw things blurry. It took a while to recognize Chen Kelan, “Oh, it’s Officer Chen! Officer Chen, how about we have a toast?”
Chen Kelan rolled her eyes and said, “Young Master Ye, I received a report a few days ago that a car suddenly disappeared on the highway. What do you think is going on?”
“It drove too fast and disappeared. It must be 100% overspeeding. Points should be deducted! Deduct it, deduct it! Anyway, it must have exceeded 12 points. It is necessary to retake the test. Let Cai Zhenjun do it. Let him take the test, anyway, he has nothing to do all day, so just find something to do for him,” Ye Fan walked away from Chen Kelan.
Chen Kelan: “…”
Chen Kelan looked at Ye Fan’s back and rolled her eyes speechlessly.
“Big brother!” Chen Yan suddenly appeared beside Chen Kelan, startling Chen Kelan.
Chen Yan glanced at the direction Ye Fan left, and said, “Don’t provoke him.”
Chen Kelan pouted and said, “Got it.”
Chen Yan looked at Ye Fan’s direction and frowned. The West King and the Gu Master who slaughtered a lot of people died in Ye Fan’s hands one after another. The above has raised Ye Fan’s file to SSS level, which belongs to the highest level, a Top Secret.
Because of Ye Fan’s rapid rise, the above finally decided to admit Ye Fan into the national special team, but Ye Fan didn’t seem to want it.
“Brother, who is that strangely dressed man over there? Why are so many people surrounding him?” Chen Kelan asked in confusion.
“That’s Daoist Master Xu, a Daoist master,” Chen Yan said solemnly.
Chen Kelan said suspiciously, “A daoist master, is it true?”
Chen Yan nodded and said, “It’s true. The former Vice-Chairman Wang was able to keep his life because of him.”
Chen Kelan said in surprise: “Is it so amazing?”
Wu Sihan became another focus of the banquet. Everyone in the banquet knew about the relationship between Wu Sihan and Ye Fan, and there were many people who were trying to establish a relationship.
Wu Sihan had never seen such a scene, every person who came up to deal with him was a person Wu Sihan needed to look up to, so Wu Sihan was instantly a bit overwhelmed.
“This guy Ye Fan can really drink!” Chen Kelan said.
Chen Yan nodded and said, “Isn’t it!”
After the engagement party, things were back on track.

Inside the office.
Ye Fan grasped Bai Yunxi’s wrist and pondered.
Bai Yunxi looked at Ye Fan and said, “How is it?”
“There should be more than ten days before the accident, that’s good. You should hand over the work to your elder brother and stay with me in the villa,” Ye Fan said.
Bai Yunxi shook his head and said, “Isn’t there still more than ten days? What’s the hurry? Let’s talk about it when the time comes.”
Ye Fan looked at Bai Yunxi and said angrily, “Why do you care so little about your body?”
“An inch of time is worth an inch of gold. I follow you all day long to stay in the haunted villa to waste time, it is not good ah!” Bai Yunxi said.
Ye Fan said displeased, “But we just got engaged, it’s not good for you to leave me in the cold!”
Bai Yunxi smiled and asked in a kind manner, “Then let me ask you. Are you hungry? Do you want something to eat?”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “I’m hungry! Do you want to go back and cook for me?”
“How can I have time to cook for you? I’ll order you a takeaway,” Bai Yunxi said coldly.
Ye Fan: “…”
Bai Yunjin walked into Bai Yunxi’s office, Bai Yunxi raised his head, and said somewhat unexpectedly, “Why is Big Brother here?”
“I’m here to give you something. The ten gold cards here are the betrothal gifts from Ye Fan, you should keep them and spend them,” Bai Yunjin said sincerely.
Bai Yunxi was not polite, and took it directly.
Although the price of the betrothal gifts is getting higher and higher, oftentimes, the betrothal gifts are just a gimmick, just to go through the formality, and the elders who receive the gifts will all give it back to the juniors.
“That 10 billion was requested by you?” Bai Yunjin asked.
Bai Yunxi shook his head and said, “No, I don’t know what he thinks either. He thinks that I like rich people and thinks that as long as there are 10 billion yuan, I will marry him.” However, at that time, he was too lazy to explain it to Ye Fan, so he acquiesced.
“Ye Fan isn’t here?” Bai Yunjin asked.
Bai Yunxi shook his head and said, “No, Daoist Master Xu just called and asked him to go to see the medicinal materials, and he went to see the medicinal materials.”
“That’s a good thing!” Bai Yun said sincerely.
Xu Yuanqing’s medical skills are very famous in the upper-class circles of Beijing.
It is rare for Xu Yuanqing to reappear, so many people want to meet him. Before Ye Fan and Bai Yunxi’s engagement, Bai Yunjin saw that Daoist Master Xu had received a lot of business cards. Many of those powerful old men and old ladies will keep some medicinal materials at the bottom of the box. Medicinal materials are usually kept tightly, so they are not easily seen, and when they meet an expert, they are willing to take them out.
“You live in that haunted house with Ye Fan now?” Bai Yunjin asked.
Bai Yunxi nodded and said, “Yes.” Now that he was engaged, Bai Yunxi didn’t hesitate and moved directly to Ye Fan’s villa.
“Would you like to change your residence? After all, that house is not auspicious!” Bai Yun said sincerely.
Bai Yunxi shook his head and said, “It’s alright, the location of the house is good, and it’s close to the company. If it wasn’t haunted, even 50 million wouldn’t be able to buy it. With Ye Fan there, the ghost would run away.” More importantly, Ye Fan specially arranged a room in that villa to deal with his illness.
Bai Yunjin nodded and said, “Indeed. I heard Ye Fan say that your big calamity is coming, otherwise, I think you should leave the company’s affairs alone and stay with Ye Fan, so that, in case of an attack, Ye Fan can take care of you ah!”
Bai Yunxi raised his head and looked directly at Bai Yunjin.
Bai Yunjin was stared at by Bai Yunxi’s sharp eyes, and he was a little cowardly. Bai Yunjin sighed in his heart. Although he is the eldest brother, he has no prestige in front of his younger brother and younger sister.
“This, Yunxi, look! In fact, with Ye Fan’s ability, he can’t starve you!”
Bai Yunxi looked at the gold cards in his hand and said, “It’s not bad, but I can’t rely on him for everything!”
People outside who don’t know the inside story feel that Ye Fan’s marriage with him is a high climb. Only he knows in his heart that he is the weaker party in this marriage. Without Ye Fan, his grandfather would have had an accident long ago. Without Ye Fan, he would not be able to survive now. What Ye Fan gave to the Bai family is not measurable by money, and it is his luck to meet Ye Fan.
Bai Yunjin looked at Bai Yunxi’s face and did not continue to persuade.
Bai Yunjin looked at the Qi Gathering Turtle in the room and said, “This guy, Ye Fan, has a soft spot for turtles! The betrothal gift he brought over included two golden turtles, which made grandpa very angry.”
Bai Yunxi smiled and said, “Ye Fan’s preferences are always different…”
