But My Hubby Dotes on Me - Chapter 39
Everyone in the conference room stared at Lu Weixi, and the room instantly fell into silence.
Lu Weixi was a little surprised. What was Qin Zhiyou doing here, looking for her? He had never been to her unit, nor had he ever looked for her in public. She turned and looked outside the window. Qin Zhiyou’s car was parked right next to the road. “What color clothes is he wearing?”
Then that has to be Secretary Wang. Lu Weixi felt more reassured. “Help me entertain them,” she instructed Xiao Chen.
After a moment, Xiao Chen entered with a hair clip, looking a little strange. After all, this was a rather private item. In the tv drama ‘Fortress Besieged’, the servants discovered an affair using a hair clip.
Lu Weixi was rather calm and received it openly. “My car broke down last night, and I hitched a ride here this morning. I probably left it behind then.”
Turning to look at the road, Secretary Wang seemed to have said something after he boarded the car. The car sped away as if it were avoiding something dirty here.
Lu Weixi paid no attention to it. She had a site to check on in the afternoon after handing out work. It was a house in an old estate, and an old couple lived there. They had immigrated overseas for decades, but were looking to refurbish the house and settle down back home now that they were old.
There was an osmanthus plant in the yard. Even though it was not the season yet, she could imagine how pretty the yard would be in August when they were blooming.
Xiao Qian and Xiao Chen chatted with the old couple as they examined the house, and for some reason, their thoughts drifted to the topics of first love. The granny smiled and said that she met the grandpa under an osmanthus tree back then. Therefore when they bought the house, they insisted on planting an osmanthus tree in the yard.
Xiao Chen looked envious, and she turned to ask Lu Weixi. “Lu Weixi, have you ever had a love at first sight?”
Lu Weixi looked up as the osmanthus tree. Maybe not love at first sight, but definitely stunned at first sight.
And it was not her first love or ex-boyfriend. It was Qin Zhiyou.
It was when she was eighteen.
Xue Feifei, that woman and her had gotten into N University together. The school of architecture in N University was known for having good-looking guys, and Qin Zhisu from Yan City’s Qin family was said to be the best of the best. After settling down in their dormitory, the few of them from the interior design discipline intended to go look at cute boys from the civil engineering school next door.
But the senior who gave them directions said something to them. “The school beau of N University is not Qin Zhisu but is actually his cousin, Qin Zhiyou. It’s just that he’s a little…” She said mysteriously as she shook her head. “He should be at the cafe near the university’s eastern entrance at this time. The most good-looking guy that’s surrounded by girls is him.”
This Young Miss Bai was a girl of action, so the trio headed straight for the eastern door. However, the trio did not find anything after walking through the cafe thrice. Just as they were disappointed, they smelled osmanthus.
They followed the smell to a quiet garden, where they could hear the words “drunk” and “that night” from afar. Realizing that it was some type of gossip, Lu Weixi immediately ran over.
They saw a guy and a girl underneath the osmanthus tree from afar. The man, who was leaning against the tree, turned when he heard the rustling and turned towards the direction of the three girls.
