Xing Jiuan lowered her gaze and said, “I was talking nonsense. Senior Brother, don’t think too much about it.”
“Then can you tell me why you’re unhappy?”
“I’m not unhappy. Senior Brother, don’t overthink this.” Xing Jiuan didn’t know how to lie to people she was close to. When she spoke, she didn’t dare to look at Mu Qing.
In the end, Mu Qing did not continue to probe her.
It was probably because this child had grown up. She had her own sentiments now that she didn’t want to tell her guardian.
As her guardian, he didn’t seem to have any other choice. He couldn’t force her to talk!
When they returned, Xing Jiuan said that she had already eaten dinner and wanted to head back to rest. Mu Qing did not request anything else.
“Boss, why do I feel that Jiuan is a little off?” Lu Mingxi asked as he leaned over.
Mu Qing remained silent as he looked at Xing Jiuan’s tightly shut door.
Xing Jiuan still did not dare to. In the car, when she sped around the highway, she felt like she had returned to the past and was back to being the brash and arrogant Xing Jiuan. However, when she got out of the car and saw Mu Qing, she became timid again.
After returning to her room, she did not do anything. She felt especially tired and went to bed after washing up.
“President, the Third Miss of the Huo family is here.” The receptionist had called, and Lu Zhichen’s personal assistant relayed this message to him.
Lu Zhichen’s expression turned cold. “I will not meet her.”
His personal assistant looked at his unhappy expression and acknowledged his decision.
The Third Miss of the Huo family, Huo Chulan, was pretty, elegant, and charming. She was truly the daughter of a wealthy family.
However, this young lady was too presumptuous when it came to pursuing her love interest.
For some reason, the Huo family was very indulgent toward her.
However, every member in this generation of the Huo family had the word “Jin” in their names. She was the only exception.
But it didn’t seem right to say that she wasn’t favored either.
The Huo family was very protective of this lady.
However, it was still somewhat strange to others.
The Huo family was a prestigious family that had been around for hundreds of years. It was one of the top families in the capital.
Aristocratic families had strict family rules.
Huo Chulan’s behavior was bad in the eyes of some families who valued rules highly.
However, Huo Chulan could still do whatever she wanted.
But, if one thought about how the Second Master of the Huo family had become an international superstar, there didn’t seem to be anything wrong with the way she acted either.
Perhaps the Huo family had become more open-minded.
The Huo family didn’t see the need to control the marriages of the juniors of the family. As long as the other party had a clean background and hadn’t done anything bad, they would basically agree to the match.
In the eyes of many, the Huo family was a very united family, which was rare to come by.
Huo Chulan was waiting downstairs. She was wearing a champagne-colored dress, and her long hair flowed gently behind her. She had exquisite makeup on her face, and her smile was just right and elegant.
“May I ask, did Mr. Lu agree to meet with me?”
“I’m sorry, Miss Huo. The President is busy and doesn’t have time to speak with you. Please go back.”
Huo Chulan smiled. “It’s okay, I was the one who forced it on him. Since he doesn’t want to see me, I’ll head off.”
It was rather heartbreaking to see her like this.
The young woman at the front desk had just started working recently. When she saw this gentle lady suddenly looking very sad, she felt awkward and bad for her.
After Huo Chulan left, the personal assistant went back.
“Sir, this is the arrangement for tomorrow.” 𝑓𝔯e𝚎𝒘𝗲𝚋𝒏oѵ𝒆𝒍. c𝗼m
“Postpone them,” Lu Zhichen said calmly.
“Sir, this… There’s a very important meeting tomorrow…”
“Push them back.”
The personal assistant’s face was full of tears. He had no choice but to agree to it, for the sake of his year-end bonus.
