His words struck a chord in Fu Man’s heart.
They were a family. She really wanted to let those things remain in the past and never bring it up again.
Lu Mian shrugged her shoulders with indifference and continued to focus on playing the game on her cell phone. Her tone was filled with a slight absurdity. “You take care. Ha.”
Lu Xingtang was deflated. He shook his head, gloomily threw his hands and left.
Lu Xinnuan secretly blamed Lu Mian before she hurriedly chased after them.
Fu Man rushed over after they were far away. She snatched her phone away sternly.
“Lu Mian, how can you speak to your elders like that? Have you forgotten all the lessons on mannerism that I taught you when you were young? You hold the cell phone all day long. Is it going to get you into the top ten ranking of your grade? Will your cell phone get you first place in a drawing competition? Can it help you get ahead in life?”
Her voice was hoarse at the end. “Can’t you learn to be more like Nuannuan…”
Lu Mian’s hands were empty, but she maintained her original posture.
After Fu Man was done with her scolding, Lu Mian finally raised her eyelids lazily. Her clear and exquisite large eyes were filled with an evil and cold smile, the carelessness that came after numbness.
“In your eyes, I naturally can’t compare to her in every way. I thought you guys would be different when I came back. The truth is, you never expected me to return.”
Her faint smile and cynical tone pierced Fu Man’s heart like a knife.
“Mianmian, it’s not like that…”
While Fu Man was in a state of shock, Lu Mian had already taken her cell phone and went out.
The middle-aged woman watched her back as she left, grasping her heart as if something precious was getting further away from her…
Su family mansion.
As the representative of Wu City’s big families, today’s small and private banquet was a reception for Old Mr. Su.
Old Mr. Su, Su Qinghe, had an important status in Wu City. This time, he had returned from recuperating abroad. Those who wished to suck up to the Su family naturally thought this was an important event and came to pay their respects.
However, this old man always lived a simple and reclusive life. Even those close to the Su family found it hard to see him. If it wasn’t for everyone’s strong request, there wouldn’t be this banquet.
When they didn’t meet the main host, everyone began to turn their focus on the 19 years old, Su Jue.
It was also a legendary story to say the least.
The young Su Jue had a keen business sense. Two days ago, he bought a stock at 2 yuan and sold it for 112 yuan in the stock market, earning back 11 million yuan with just 200,000 yuan.
This insight was more sophisticated than many top financial analysts, and even comparable to the legendary Mr. Ye Qiao in the stock industry.
Everyone in the business industry was instantly shocked and praised him. They even said he would become someone great in the future.
The current master of the Su family was Su Sheng who was also Su Jue’s father. He seized the opportunity and introduced his son among friends to accumulate connections.
Soon, Lu Xingtang appeared with his wife and Lu Xinnuan. Su Sheng welcomed them warmly.
Their families had been friends for a long time. They would usually get together every now and then to keep in touch in a much more casual atmosphere and praised their own children during their conversations.
Lu Xinnuan would smile in accompaniment, but her eyes secretly sized up the banquet hall, looking for Old Mr. Su and Su Jue.
There were also a lot of astonished eyes checking her out as they secretly guessed that this Ms. Lu had an 80% chance as the predetermined candidate to be Su family’s daughter-in-law.
Lu Xinnuan was reserved, smiling and quiet.
Until Su Sheng opened his mouth.
“Nuannuan, Su Jue is in the back garden looking for his grandfather. You’re holding a painting with you. Quickly, go to the back garden then!”
Lu Xinnuan looked at her uncle and aunt.
Both adults nodded with approval; only then did Lu Xinnuan leave.
“Nuannuan is a good child. She has grown up and is carrying herself so well now. Brother Lu, we’ll be able to become a family once my old man gives his approval!”
“Ha ha ha. It would be great if Old Mr. Su approves. However, she is my only niece by blood. There’s no rush. Ha ha ha…” Lu Xingtang spoke diplomatically and left Lu Mian out of the picture totally.
At this point, Su Sheng suddenly thought of something. He spoke softly, “Brother Lu, I heard that your eldest niece has returned?”
“Yes, she’s back.”
Lu Xingtang and Fei Jinlan didn’t elaborate further, a huge change in their attitude.
“It’s good that she’s back. Our Old Master has been asking about her. Why didn’t you bring her along today?”
“She’s not feeling well.”
