But My Hubby Dotes on Me - Chapter 40
The man had thin lips, a pair of alluring eyes that widened slightly when he saw her. Flowers from the tree drifted to the ground as the wind blew. When his jet black eyes met hers, they were eye-catching and dazzling, much like the falling petals of a cherry blossom tree.
A sound came from Lu Weixi’s heart as time seemed to freeze, music started playing and the flowers were in full bloom.
But in the next second, the man looked at the woman right in front of him with a smile. “We’re all adults. It was all consensual. I won’t go out with you, so just give up.”
At that, the castle that Lu Weixi had built up in her heart collapsed.
No matter how good-looking, one would be slapped for saying something like this. He did not appear to be surprised at all. Before he left, palm print in tow, he turned and looked in the trio’s direction with a smile that only widened.
Lu Weixi was not sure if she was hallucinating, but she felt that the look he gave her before he left had a deeper meaning to it.
The next time they met, she was already Qin Zhisu’s girlfriend that he had brought home, and she had to call him “big brother”.
Lu Weixi retracted her gaze as she shook her head. “If love at first sight were that common, it wouldn’t be as coveted. I’m envious of grandma and grandpa’s relationship. A simple relationship is hard to come by in such a complicated world.”
Xiao Chen looked at her confusedly. “Lu Gong, have you been hurt before? Why do you sound so jaded?”
Lu Weixi patted the latter’s head. “Go and do your work. If we’re talking about breakups, I’m the one doing the dumping, got it?” she said with raised eyebrows as she laughed.
“Oh.” Xiao Chen touched her head. After this house, they still had to check on the piping, walls and floor for the next one. When things got busy, Lu Weixi would roll up her sleeves and put her hair up to drive things forward. Life was not a bed of roses. It was about making ends meet, and it could be messy.
Actually, her relationship with Qin Zhiyou now was quite good. One worked, while the other paid, and she could focus on herself. Without getting feelings involved, she would never get hurt.
At the same time in Han Hai Corporation.
When Qin Zhiyou came out of the conference room, his face was dark. He walked in front, with Secretary Wang in tow. Behind him were the company’s management, the board of directors, and his uncle and aunt.
His expression was not any better after he entered his office. Just as Secretary Wang closed the door, he saw Qin Zhiyou pick up a glass full of water and throw it at the wall.
Crash! The cup shattered as the water and glass fragments flew everywhere.
Yes, he won at the board meeting again, to the point that his uncle and auntie had nothing to say. But what his uncle said at the end cut him deeply.
‘Fighting for power and playing with women. You’re no different from your dead dad.’
Clenching his fists, he was unrelenting even when the fingernails cut into his palm. After a while, he took a deep breath, picked up his coat and walked out.
“CEO Qin, where are we going? Home?” Secretary Wang asked as he followed after him.
