Jiang Xianrou had definitely sowed discord between them.

It was not that simple for Jiang Xianrou to use their family as a gun!

On the other side, at the Jiang residence.

Jiang Xianrou returned home with a heavy heart.

It was rare for Tang Wanru to be at home during the day. She greeted her gently upon seeing her, “Xianrou, you’re back? Do you want some soup? Mother Wang made chicken soup. I’ll get someone to scoop a bowl of soup for you.”

Jiang Xianrou didn’t look too good. She pursed her lips and shook her head, then said weakly, “Mom, there’s no need. I don’t want to drink soup.”

Tang Wanru noticed that her complexion was not good and subconsciously frowned. “Xianrou, what’s wrong? Why do you look so pale?”

Jiang Xianrou looked away, not wanting her to discover her guilt. She hurriedly said, “No, nothing. I must have been too tired recently.”

Jiang Yao happened to come out of the study and heard her voice. A smile appeared on his handsome face and he said with concern, “You’re back? Didn’t you go to the Ninth Branch today? How was the assessment result?”

It would have been fine if he hadn’t mentioned this, but when he did, it undoubtedly added salt to Jiang Xianrou’s wound. Her originally pale face turned even paler. She pinched her palms and her lips moved, but she couldn’t answer.

Jiang Yao had thought that she would definitely pass this assessment.

He did not expect Jiang Xianrou to react like this.

His heart skipped a beat. “You failed to enter Master Cheng’s lab?”

Jiang Xianrou felt extremely embarrassed when she heard his surprised tone.

Tang Wanru was also shocked. She did not expect this to happen when she returned. She instinctively asked, “What’s going on? Didn’t you ask Young Master Ye and the others?”

Everyone knew that the Ninth Branch was Ye Wangchuan’s territory.

In her heart, Jiang Xianrou had always been a member of Ye Wangchuan’s small circle. There was no reason why she could not enter the Ninth Branch.

Jiang Xianrou’s expression was ugly. She pursed her lips and said in a low voice, “Someone is behind this…”

“Who is it?” Tang Wanru asked angrily.

She bit her lip and said nothing.

Tang Wanru had already thought of someone. “Are you talking about Qiao Nian?”

Jiang Xianrou still did not speak, her eyes filled with malice.

But in this case, her silence was tantamount to acquiescence.

Tang Wanru’s expression was cold, and she was furious. “What’s wrong with her? Does she have to go against you every time?!”

Jiang Xianrou’s heart was in a mess. She was still thinking about Zhu Yuanhao being taken away. Her heart was racing and she couldn’t feel at ease. Hearing her mother’s words, she only said calmly, “I don’t know what she wants to do, either. It’s useless to ask me.”

Without waiting for Tang Wanru to speak, she walked past the two of them and went upstairs.

“I’m tired. I’m going upstairs to rest.”

“…” Tang Wanru looked at her back and wanted to say something, but she forcefully endured it and did not stop her.

On the other hand, Jiang Yao was confused and could not digest the information for a long time.

He waited for Jiang Xianrou to go up before rubbing his forehead. He asked Tang Wanru with an irritated expression, “Mom, what does Xianrou’s inability to enter the Ninth Branch have to do with Qiao Nian? Does Qiao Nian know Young Master Ye and the others?”

Before Tang Wanru could answer him, he pressed his temples again, his eyes filled with confusion. “Didn’t Xianrou always play well with Young Master Ye and the others? It’s impossible for them to neglect Xianrou even if Nian Nian knows Young Master Ye.”

Therefore, he didn’t understand how Qiao Nian had the power to prevent Xianrou from entering the Ninth Branch!
