Mother Lu was elated, but she didn’t show it on her face. She pretended to be unhappy and said, “Go have a look. I don’t want to see him.”
Mother Lu stole a few glances at Pan Mingyue when she went to the kitchen. She was really happy.
Lu Zhaoying wasn’t as useless as she thought.
Second Uncle left after seeing Pan Mingyue. He then said to Father Lu, “The competition is tough this time. We won’t have much chance with the Tong family. I’ll get more information from them about going to their place later.”
Father Lu thought for a while before answering, “I understand.”
Second Uncle looked at Father Lu. He wanted Lu Zhaoying and Mother Lu to help using their connections.
Lu Zhaoying was a close friend of Cheng Juan and Mother Lu was close to the lady from Continent M. They were the center and support of the Lu family.
No one dared to anger them.
Second Uncle was afraid of Lu Zhaoying as well. Hence, he didn’t dare to speak his mind. He didn’t stay for dinner as well and left after he was done with his business.
The chauffeur opened the doors for him as he looked back at the house. The chauffeur then said, “Sir, I saw Master Zhaoying bring a girl back just now. He even opened the doors for her. Could she…”
Second Uncle shook his head. He thought about Mother Lu’s reaction just now and replied, “I’m not sure. Let’s head to the Tong family first.”
Lu Zhaoying was a playboy in the past and had many girls before. The girl from just now wasn’t special and wasn’t his usual type, so Second Uncle thought that he would be bored of her after a while.
It was the first time Lu Zhaoying had brought someone home. Second Uncle thought that something was amiss, but he wasn’t sure of what exactly.
In the Lu family’s house.
Father Lu looked at the kitchen after Second Uncle left and then asked Mother Lu, “Didn’t you say that it was impossible for the both of them?”
Picking the flowers on the table, she answered. “Your son received some help.”
“Who helped him?” Father Lu asked in shock.
Mother Lu placed the flowers back into the vase and then said, “It’s a secret.”
Father Lu was speechless. He then asked, “What about the Tong family? They might cause trouble for Mingyue.
“He also brought her to the camp. A lot of people in the family aren’t happy about it. He was too rash, and she left a bad first impression.” Father Lu was worried as he tried to lower his voice. “If he truly cared about her, he wouldn’t have done this.”
“You should care more about your son. You have no idea what line of business Mingyue is in, right?” Mother Lu threw the flowers at him after what he said.
Father Lu had absolutely no idea. He didn’t even know what Lu Zhaoying was doing because it was classified information. They only knew that he was working in the first district.
The center of the Lu family was Lu Zhaoying. Everyone else in the family was too far from Lu Zhaoying’s circle, and they didn’t know much about the work he and Cheng Juan were doing. Not even Father Lu.
Lu Zhaoying didn’t like to tell people about his work as well. The only reason why Mother Lu knew was that she was in close contact with Pan Mingyue. Pan Mingyue told her everything.
By the time Pan Mingyue was done with dinner with the Lu family, it was already 10 pm.
Mother Lu didn’t want her to leave and asked her to stay in the guestroom.
It wasn’t the first time that Pan Mingyue stayed over in the Lu family.
There was a period when she was trying to avoid Lu Zhaoying and didn’t visit the Lu family. However, Mother Lu left the room closest to the corridor especially for her.
Even though Pan Mingyue’s memory wasn’t as good as Qin Ran’s, she could tell that the room was almost the same as the last time she visited.
It was pink, and there were even two flowers at the side of the window. She could even hear Mother Lu talking with Lu Zhaoying outside.
Pan Mingyue leaned against the window and looked at the scenery outside. She heard the conversation outside and smiled.
Her phone rang, and she saw it was Shi Liming.
“Team Leader Pan.” Shi Liming greeted. He was still at the school, and he had just finished helping He Chen with the people from Yi Chu. “Are you free at 9 am the day after tomorrow?”
“Yes, I am.” Pan Mingyue remembered that it was about some training matters and answered seriously.
“I’ll come to fetch you at the usual time?”
Pan Mingyue was still under investigation at the Inspection Institute, so she agreed. “Alright.”
The next day, Mother Lu brought her out for a shopping trip. She had invited Pan Mingyue to stay for another night, and Pan Mingyue couldn’t reject her offer.
After they were done shopping, she stayed for another night at the Lu family’s house.
Pan Mingyue slept very well in the Lu family because of the positive atmosphere there.
When she woke up, it was already 8 am.
She overheard some people talking in the living room as she was heading downstairs after washing up. Second Uncle was there, along with some of the managers. They were having a serious discussion while Lu Zhaoying was lazing at the dining table.
One of the managers was Tong Yan.
Second Uncle was surprised to see Pan Mingyue and stopped speaking.
The rest of them stopped talking as well after seeing her.
Tong Yan was especially shocked. She never thought that Pan Mingyue would be at the Lu family’s house!
“You’re up?” Lu Zhaoying looked up from his phone and walked towards her.
Pan Mingyue could tell that they were discussing something important and didn’t want to intrude. She greeted Father and Mother Lu, before getting some milk and bread and then rushing out.
Lu Zhaoying knew that she was going out for matters about the first district. He took his keys and said, “Let me send you there.”
“Erm, Zhaoying…” Second Uncle Lu was shocked at how fast Lu Zhaoying volunteered to help her.
Tong Yan left without saying a word.
The living room was silent for a while before Second Uncle Lu sighed. “Seems like he won’t be joining us. Let’s go without him, then. We won’t be able to enter if we’re late.”
He was really disappointed by him. He felt that Lu Zhaoying was really irresponsible for being more concerned with the girl.
