Shi Yan immediately turned frigid upon hearing those words. As a mature woman who had once joined all sorts of occasions alongside Han Ying, she had heard of many similar instances—both explicit and implicit—and naturally knew what Chen Shao was thinking.
“Who are your parents?” Shi Yan asked sternly.
There was a rather large disparity between Chen Shao’s family in Yan City and top-tier prominent families as well as the Three Major Families, so hearing Shi Yan question him this way made Chen Shao tense up. He quickly remembered where he was now; no ordinary folk could ever show up here. This pretty lady could be from a prominent family.
Unclear of who he was dealing with, Chen Shao dared not go overboard with his words. Instead, he asked in return, “And who are you?”
Shi Yan may have already left the Han family, but she figured that a little name-dropping could possibly help get her out of her current predicament. “I’m Shi Yan from the Han family.”
