Hao Dui didn’t expect Lu Zhaoying to get so many men at once.
He had a deep impression of Pan Mingyue and knew how special she was to Qin Ran. However, he never expected Lu Zhaoying to invite Giant Crocodile over at this moment.
Unlike other people, Giant Crocodile didn’t easily intervene in general affairs. When he did, it involved several forces and too many interests. The international forces were balanced with one another, and if anyone was to randomly be involved, the balance would be offset. Hence, his arrival had really surprised Hao Dui.
After all, Giant Crocodile had no direct relationship with Pan Mingyue.
Thinking about it again, he also knew the rumors about Pan Mingyue and 129. Chang Ning seemed to have approached Pan Mingyue, but 129 had always been mysterious, so he wasn’t sure if Pan Mingyue had really joined.
Judging by the reaction and speed of Giant Crocodile today, he was convinced of the authenticity of this rumor. Otherwise, Giant Crocodile wouldn’t have come in person.
After Hao Dui finished speaking, Yi Chu’s man was shocked and stared straight at him. “129? What do you mean?”
Instead of answering, Hao Dui moved closer to the men from the Underground Alliance.
If Pan Mingyue was really part of 129, then Yi Chu had really sought their own death this time. He Chen would take care of the remaining business, so Hao Dui had no need to worry.
He still kept in touch with those from the Underground Alliance, the particularly fierce force in Continent M. After establishing a good relationship with them, Hao Dui would find it much easier to deal with international cases.
His whole body relaxed.
But the others weren’t so relaxed.
Feng Loucheng looked directly at Madam Feng.
Madam Feng took a step backward, knowing what he wanted to say. “I… I was in a rush…”
Feng Loucheng continued staring at her. After he arrived in Beijing, he had secretly gathered the Inspection Institute for Qin Ran and the others. The current situation of the Inspection Institute was largely due to his efforts, so he hadn’t paid attention to Madam Feng and Feng Ci’s affairs. He just glanced at her and said, “No need to explain, I’ll check it myself.”
Without the slightest emotion, he withdrew his gaze and walked towards Hao Dui.
After he left, Ruan Hao retracted his gaze and glanced in the direction of Yi Chu’s man. Then, he glanced at the technician still holding his computer.
“Are you Miss Pan’s friend? Let me ask you a question.” The technician was very polite to Ruan Hao.
Lin Jinxuan retracted his thoughts and listened as Ruan Hao said, “Yes. I lived in Uncle Feng’s house before Mingyue.”
“Oh, Miss Pan is from 129, right?” The technician looked around, then covered his left hand over his mouth and whispered, “Otherwise, Mr. Lou wouldn’t have come just now. Forget it, don’t hide it from me. I already know this is confidential, I won’t talk nonsense. I’ll leave.”
He went to find Hao Dui.
Leaving behind Ruan Hao and Feng Ci, standing under the streetlamp.
Feng Ci’s head was lowered, so Ruan Hao couldn’t see his expression clearly. He just coughed and patted him on the shoulder. “Brother, you heard it yourself. I don’t believe you haven’t heard of what kind of place 129 is. We really don’t deserve her, you should give up.”
Having walked over depressed, Madam Feng heard Ruan Hao’s sentence and her mind buzzed again. “Ruan Hao, what did you say?”
“It’s in the black street. There are many rumors on the Internet. If you judge it seriously, even the four major families aren’t comparable,” said Ruan Hao seriously as he scratched his head. “Auntie, I think Pan Mingyue probably feels like her circle is too different from Feng Ci’s. But she used to have such a good relationship with Brother Feng Ci. How did they become like this…”
Madam Feng wasn’t listening to him anymore.
If she had been a little hesitant to find Pan Mingyue when the butler had told her earlier, her head was simply spinning now.
How had they become like this? The corner of Madam Feng’s mouth quivered, and she remembered warning Pan Mingyue more than once, telling her not to make a move on Feng Ci, all because she had taken a fancy to Li Shuangning.
Feng Loucheng had been rising in status slowly, but Madam Feng knew that the foundation of the Feng family was still too shallow, so an alliance by marriage was the best choice.
But she never expected that the orphan Pan Mingyue was too different from what she had originally imagined. Compared to her, Li Shuangning wasn’t worth a mention.
It wasn’t an exaggeration to say that she had contributed to Pan Mingyue and Feng Ci’s split.
Suddenly, Madam Feng spat out a mouthful of blood and fainted as soon as she closed her eyes.
“It’s settled.” Giant Crocodile opened the car door and turned on his Bluetooth headset. He called Qin Ran and said, “Brother, I found Xie Jiu’s men.”
Qin Ran nodded. “He told me.”
“I didn’t get up from bed in vain.” Giant Crocodile stretched lazily. “I happened to see Song Luting. I’ll go to your laboratory tomorrow.”
“Sister Ran already told me. Hey, can you stop that research of yours?” Qin Ran leaned on a pillow and raised an eyebrow.
Giant Crocodile said faintly, “Forget that you’re not helping me, but can’t I even find Song Luting by myself?”
Qin Ran pressed her temples. “Don’t scare him.”
She called Song Luting after hanging up with Giant Crocodile.
Lu Zhaoying drove back to the Lu family’s house after sending Song Luting to the laboratory.
The Lu family was unaware of the movement in Beijing. When Mother Lu heard the sound of the car driving into the yard, she stopped talking to the others and threw the flowers in her hand aside. “We didn’t prepare your share today, a single dog isn’t worthy of eating… Oh, Mingyue, you’re here. Quick, bring four dishes out. Mingyue, let me take a look at you, you’ve grown so thin.”
Mother Lu’s temperament and eyes were like Qin Ran’s, and Pan Mingyue had a natural affection for her.
After looking at Pan Mingyue up and down, Mother Lu gently turned to Lu Zhaoying. “Didn’t you just learn how to cook a dish the other day? Why don’t you go to the kitchen?”
Lu Zhaoying was chased to the kitchen by her.
He was speechless. He hadn’t learned it well.
Pan Mingyue looked at him in surprise, remembering how Lu Zhaoying had only been tasked to wash the dishes back in the school doctor’s office.
“This is?” When Mother Lu was speaking, the middle-aged man in the hall talking to Father Lu stood up and looked at her in surprise.
“Second Uncle, this is Mingyue.” Mother Lu put her hands on Pan Mingyue’s shoulders and introduced her. “Mingyue, this is his second uncle.”
Pan Mingyue politely greeted Father Lu and Second Uncle.
Father Lu was also very kind to her. After greeting her, he continued discussing with Second Uncle, “About the quota…”
Seeing that Pan Mingyue was still there, Second Uncle interrupted his next words. “You’re all busy, we’ll talk about this next time.”
He silently glanced at Pan Mingyue, interrupting Father Lu in time so that she wouldn’t hear it.
Pan Mingyue knew this matter wasn’t too convenient for her to hear, and she had no wishes to eavesdrop either. She turned to Mother Lu and whispered, “I’ll go to the kitchen to take a look.”
