Silence descended in the large living room.Shen Mofei sat next to Song Anyi. The two stared at each other and smiled.Following that, Shen Mofei looked at Tang Ruochu and replied, "Sister-in-law, your worry is legitimate. However, I won't break up with Anyi.""Won't break up?"Tang Ruochu frowned slightly. Actually, there were still some pending matters between them that made their relationship more complicated than a promise to not break up.However, when she saw the determined gaze of Mofei, she swallowed her words of suspicion before glancing at them angrily. "All right, I know that you love each other."Song Anyi smiled shyly before complaining helplessly, "Aren't we talking about Xiaoxiao and Shengyao? Why is this suddenly about me?"Tang Ruochu couldn't help sniggering. "Right, why is it suddenly about you guys?"Afterward, she raised her brows at Shen Mofei. "Mofei, you have to take the blame for this. If not for your sudden appearance, I wouldn't have changed the topic
Lu Shengyao didn't reply to her. He immediately picked up the prawn that Mrs. Ying had put into his bowl and removed the shell before putting it in Ying Xiaoxiao's bowl. He then stared gently into her eyes as he said, "I'll remove the shells for you if you want to eat them."Even though she knew that he was merely acting, she fell in love with his gentle demeanor.This time, she decided to enjoy his gentle concern for her.Lowering her eyes to hide her emotions, she picked up the prawn and put it in her mouth, savoring its taste.Lu Shengyao stared at her with a pair of eyes as gentle as water.In the eyes of others, they were definitely deeply in love.Mrs. Ying used her elbow to nudge Mr. Ying beside her. The latter glared at her but she signaled for him to look at Xiaoxiao.Hence, he turned his head to look at Xiaoxiao and saw the expression of Lu Shengyao while he was looking at her.Mrs. Ying's voice rang beside his ears. "Look at how Shengyao looks at our daughter. He tru
At such a young age, he had to either be very capable or have strong background if he was the General Manager of Times Entertainment News.Mr. Ying examined him thoughtfully before shifting his gaze back to Ying Xiaoxiao, asking with a solemn expression, "Xiaoxiao, are you certain that he is the one?""I'm sure." Ying Xiaoxiao nodded heavily.Mr. Ying stared at her deeply. "I can allow the two of you to date, however..." he paused, "I have to monitor it and see if he truly loves you, or if he is merely someone that you brought back here to fool me."Ying Xiaoxiao and Lu Shengyao glanced at each other. Even though they were guilty, she still spoke with feigned confidence. "Dad, you can observe all you want. We can handle your observation."Mr. Ying looked at them before replying casually, "Let's eat. The dishes are getting cold."Such a sentence made Ying Xiaoxiao heave a long sigh of relief.Hence, Lu Shengyao's first meet-the-parents session concluded well....The night was
Tang Ruochu heard the mockery in his tone and therefore defended her best friend. "Xiaoxiao wasn't the one who acted fast. Uncle Ying wanted to see Shengyao, so..." She shrugged her shoulders. "You understand."Lu Shijin shook his head and laughed. "Shengyao hates interacting with seniors. He escaped from the dragon's pit just to enter the tiger's lair."Tang Ruochu was speechless."Is he implying that the Lu family is the dragon's pit and the Ying family is tiger's lair?"Lu Shijin looked ahead at the road in front as he smiled meaningfully. "I believe that it's not so easy for Shengyao to leave this time."In the Lu family, his big brother could prevent him from the oppression of the old man.But in the Ying family, Mr. Ying was not someone who could be easily fooled. Shengyao and Xiaoxiao's performance might not be so easy.Tang Ruochu raised her brows. She understood what he meant but... this could foster an ideal relationship....After eating, Lu Shengyao accompanied Mr.
Ying Xiaoxiao entered the study with a plate of fruit. When she saw that her father was still playing chess with Lu Shengyao, she put the plate of fruit on the study desk before walking to Lu Shengyao's side.Lu Shengyao turned to look at her. He smiled gently before moving his gaze back to the chessboard.Mr. Ying glanced at his daughter and asked casually, "Why are you not accompanying your mother?""She wanted to watch her drama and asked me to not bother her." Ying Xiaoxiao found it amusing that her mother had chased her upstairs, for she knew that her mother was worried that they wouldn't get along.However, it seemed like her mother was overthinking it.They were at peace during their game of chess, at least in her eyes.It was a difficult match, as the two fought each other head-on. The match only ended an hour later.This time, Mr. Ying lost.By three moves."Good game, Uncle." Lu Shengyao looked at Mr. Ying with humility. His eyes were gentle as he smiled politely.M
Mr. Ying stared at them silently before finally sighing. "Never mind, please return."...While walking out of the Ying manor, Lu Shengyao held Ying Xiaoxiao's hand as he turned around to look at that European-style manor. He complained half-jokingly, "This place will be one of the places that I will hate to visit again."Hearing his words, Ying Xiaoxiao turned around to look at her manor as well. Sadness appeared on her face as she shifted her gaze to his. "Do you really detest it here so much?"Lu Shengyao turned around and stared into her clear pupils, smiling gently and nodding honestly. "I truly don't want to visit here again."Then, he let go of her hand and walked directly to the car.As her grip became empty, her heart became empty as well. Bitterness filled her heart.The tip of her fingers curled up as she took a deep breath and raced toward him.When he was about to open the car door, she shouted, "Lu Shengyao."Lu Shengyao paused and turned around. A slender figure
Lu Shengyao walked out of the elevator to the door of his apartment. He was about to key in the password.At this point in time, the door opposite his opened. Accompanied by a shriek, a girl charged out with her head lowered, bumping into him accidentally.The girl lifted up her head when she felt that she had bumped into someone. When she saw his face, she exclaimed, "It's you!"That was the extraordinary circumstance that marked Lu Shengyao's virgin experience of killing a cockroach.He wrapped the dead cockroach in tissue before throwing it into the toilet bowl for it to be flushed away.Then, he walked out and saw the girl walking out of her kitchen with a bottle of water.Seeing him, the girl asked hastily, "So? Did you kill it?"Lu Shengyao nodded. "Yes, it's dead."The girl heaved a sigh of relief. "I am finally saved."She then passed the bottle of water over. "Here, sorry for the trouble."Lu Shengyao received the bottle of water and examined her mockingly. "Are you
Tang Ruo looked at her meaningfully. "That's hard to say.""Ha!" Ying Xiaoxiao snorted. "No way!"It wasn't that she lacked confidence, but Lu Shengyao's mind was too unpredictable, and she dared not keep her expectations too high."Don't judge too soon." Tang Ruochu smiled meaningfully.Ying Xiaoxiao sighed heavily. "Forget it. Let's not talk about it."The more they talked about it, the more depressing it got. She'd rather let go of it.Tang Ruochu smiled and said nothing else.Yin Xiaoxiao went on to eat her meal, then remembered something and looked up at her. "Remember to go shopping for a formal dress after work. The charity gala will be held in two days."Tang Ruochu smiled and said, "Sure, I'll remember.""And remember to call Anyi too," Ying Xiaoxiao added."I'll remember that too." Tang Ruochu shook her head and smiled again.'Love' was a famous wedding gown design studio that also designed all kinds of evening dresses.It was said that the owner was an elegant an
