Once the hair clip was wrapped, Lu Mian took it and casually shoved the black card into her pants pocket.
She wandered out of the mall with a sloppy air.
Xinhua Bookstore was opposite the mall.
She paused, crossed the road slowly, and walked in.
Lu Mian liked to read all kinds of books for leisure. Every time she passed by a bookstore, she would always go in and take a look regardless if it was a big bookstore or a small magazine house.
However, she was also very picky when it came to books. She would search one by one and it would be hard to find a novel that she liked.
She left empty-handed again.
Fu Man and Lu Xinnuan left the mall at the same time, carrying a few shopping bags in their hands as they stood next to the car.
Fu Man felt apologetic when she saw that Lu Mian had returned. “Mianmian, I’ll bring you out again next time. It’s more urgent for your sister because she has to go to the Su family tomorrow…”
Lu Mian smiled. “No need.”
She got into the back seat automatically and sat frivolously, covering the hair clip box with her body. It blocked Lu Xinnuan’s prying eyes from the box.
Since it was a weekend the next day, Lu Xinnuan changed into a small dress early. By noon, she had applied light makeup.
“Nuannuan, get ready quickly. Your uncle and aunt will be here soon…”
The second family was taking Lu Xinnuan to the Su family’s private banquet today. It was also a reception party for Old Mr. Su.
As they were talking, they could hear the footsteps of Lu Xingtang and Fei Jinlan coming from the living room.
Lu Xingtang was well-maintained and handsome at the age of forty-eight. Although he had been immersed in the business industry for years, he still maintained a good physique and appearance.
Fei Jinlan came from a famous family too. She carried herself with elegance and dignity. One could tell with one glance that she was a noble mistress of a great family.
Fu Man was slightly reserved.
On the other hand, Lu Xinnuan was relaxed. She ran down the stairs, calling sweetly, “Uncle, Aunt!”
She lifted her brand-new white, chiffon dress shyly. “How do I look? I won’t embarrass our family!”
“Silly girl! What are you talking about? You’re already in the top ten ranking at your age. You’ve given our family name a big boost! Apart from your brother, who else in the four great families of Su, Ye, Fei, and Bai can compare to you?”
Fei Jinlan also truly loved Lu Xinnuan. She only had one son so she treated her niece like her daughter. On top of that, Lu Xinnuan knew when and how to speak, and behaved obediently. They were more than willing to treat her like a daughter from a wealthy family and felt optimistic about her future.
“Xinnuan’s work just won first prize!” Fu Man said as she proudly showed them her daughter’s painting.
Lu Xinnuan smiled as she took it.
“Xinnuan is really excellent!”
The few of them exchanged pleasantries. Fei Jinlan smiled, turned around, and suddenly saw someone sitting at the corner of the sofa.
The girl’s posture was casual. She wore a loose, pure white t-shirt and light blue loose jeans.
She was focused on playing with her cell phone. The smile on her face seemed to be mocking them as they spoke, but at the same time, she didn’t seem to be interested in the slightest.
The cell phone screen quickly switched between colored images. Every time the game started, a page with a well-designed ‘SF’ logo would appear.
Fei Jinlan eyed her with reproach. The girl had appeared so quietly that she scared her.
Fei Jinlan maintained her gentle disposition because of her upbringing and said, “Mianmian, stay at home and rest well!”
Her attitude was neutral, but compared to how she had been treating Lu Xinnuan, it was a vast difference.
Lu Xingtang also noticed her. Acting like an elder, he also expressed his concerns.
“Since you’re back, you should be good and learn to be more like your sister. The family will support you if you wish to study. Otherwise, I will arrange a position for you to work in the company.”
“Anyway, Mianmian, what happened is in the past. We’re a family. Let’s not bring it up anymore!”
