It was a sunny summer, the sky is clear as crystal that it gives some peaceful and calm feeling to the person who is watching it.
In the Zhou Mansion, it has an opposite situation to how calm the sky is. It was lively, the servants were literally running around the house, as they cleaned every space and inch of the house, making sure not a speck of dust must be seen or touched.
For today, is a very important day for the Zhou Family. They will now introduce their one and only daughter, Lihua, to her soon-to-be husband. The young man's family will arrive in the evening.
The Zhou family, who will host the said small party, still have the whole morning and afternoon to prepare for a small party that will only be attended by the two families.
"I'm so excited to meet our son-in-law." Mrs. Zhou exclaimed as she personally arranged the flowers. "It has been so long since we saw that child. I bet he has grown into a fine young man now" she added as she took a glance at her husband who on the other hand was reading a morning newspaper.
He asked his wife earlier if he could also help her but the madam only scolded him to get his hands-off from her flowers.
"Since that incident happened we never saw him come to our place, Lihua also doesn't remember him." the Zhou patriarch said in a sad voice as he placed the newspaper on the table.
"Eight years have already passed yet those two were still stuck with him. I, too, miss him so much but we can't do anything about what happened. As long as the two of us are still breathing, all we can do is to try our best to know who their kidnappers are." He added.
''Though, I have an idea who they are, still I need to confirm their identity because they might be the same men who caused him-'' His wife immediately shut him off and pinched his side, "Ay yah you old man stop making the lively room gloomy. Let's just talk about our future grandchildren." Mrs. Zhou suggested.
"Well, I bet, my grandchildren will have our looks." The Zhou Patriarch stated and the madam immediately agreed.
The atmosphere became lively again as the two elders continued chatting happily in the living room, they were talking about their grandchildren even though the bride and the groom still haven't met each other.
On the other hand, their daughter, Lihua was planning on escaping this so-called arranged marriage which is somehow a tradition for some elite families. She wanted to break and go against that tradition because she believes that she must only marry the man she loves.
"Should I tell my parents that I have found a boyfriend?" She questioned herself when she remembered that her parents have told her that once she didn't find herself a boyfriend at the age of nineteen, they would introduce her fiance when the perfect time comes and that perfect time is today. Lihua has been listing all the possible reasons she could think of just to break the marriage alliance.
While she was thinking about what to do just to break the marriage alliance and the Zhou Elders were busy arranging the small party.
The soon-to-be groom's family house was in chaos because the young man was nowhere to be found.
"How could your son do this to us? He already knew that today is the day where he would meet her again as his fiance." the young man's father angrily said.
The young man's mother is also angry and at the same time worried. They didn't know where to find their son who was just hiding in one of his private houses.
At the young man's Private House
Laying on the sofa bed is the young Li Wei who escaped from meeting his fiance. He placed his two big hands on his face and sighed.
"I think I don't have the guts to face her yet." He murmured to himself.
He actually knew who his soon-to-be wife was. He was actually delighted by the fact that the girl he loves will be his fiance but at the same time he is afraid to meet her. Afraid that once he would see her, he would lose all his control of his emotions in front of her.
Even though they haven't met each other again, he had already lost his mind , applying to be a professor in the university where she is studying.
He knew that it is a big no-no for a teacher to have a relationship with one of his students. But he wants to take the risk in order for him to protect her, to fill all the years they missed when he was away and not on her side when she was suffering. He wanted to be part of her life once again.
He would do anything to protect her if their relationship would be discovered.
Because once they are found out, maybe just maybe some people will understand but there will still be some people who are really close-minded and they prefer judging people without understanding the situation properly.
The other thing why he didn't want to meet her yet is that he wanted to give some freedom for the young lady while they still haven't met each other in person.
While thinking about the situation, he felt his head and eyes aching. So he decided to close his eyes and just take a nap. He was also tired and exhausted from a four hours drive from his parent's house to his private place.
The Jian Family immediately apologized to the Zhou couple as soon as they arrived at the Mansion. Before they left their house, they had been contacting their son but his phone couldn't be reached.
"We are very sorry, our son went missing this morning. I should have tied him to his bed if I had known that he would do this to us." Madam Jian told the Zhou Matriarch
"It is okay, we understand him. Maybe he just needed some time to think about this marriage." Mrs. Zhou said as she tapped Mrs. Jian's shoulder.
"There is still plenty of time for both our children to meet each other," Mr. Zhou uttered.
"Let us just eat some dinner, we have prepared so many dishes." Mrs. Zhou guided the Jian Couple to the kitchen.
Lihua was really happy about what she had heard from Mrs. Jian. She was really grateful and thankful for what the man did. She didn't want to meet him yet. She still has so many things to do and achieve before engaging herself in married life.
She should enjoy herself for being free because while she was planning her "How to break the Marriage Alliance" she realized that she really couldn't break it because it was a marriage alliance done by her Grandpa and the young man's Grandma.
Even though she is doted by her Grandpa she still knew that her Grandpa's mind wouldn't change once she would bring this topic to him. As long as her Grandpa lives no one could defy his orders because he is still the main patriarch of the Zhou Household.
The weather was calm, like an ocean before the storm and the sky was painted all blue with a touch of white like cotton candy clouds, it was a calming sight to see and the fresh wind was blowing gently. While Li Wei was discussing, he was also stealing small glances at the young lady who is writing and doodling on her journal, he slowly approached her table. Lihua was busy flipping and looking at the pages of her journal. She had used many of the pages in her journal already."The days had passed by so fast and today is already Friday." she thought and sighed. She then started scribbling and writing in her journal. This is one of her past times when she is bored or when she has nothing to do. She would do some sket

It was a cold Saturday morning since it rained last night. Lihua is busy preparing her gift for Jingfei when her father entered her room and told her that today is the day that she will meet her fiance because the last time they arranged the small party for both families, the young man didn't came."What? I cannot meet him today! Nobody told me that we will meet them today. And besides, I already made plans for today, you know father that it's Jingfei birthday today." Lihua uttered as she continued preparing her gift."Your mother did inform you last night!" Lihua's father uttered calmly. Lihua did remembered that her mother went in but she cannot remember what she said since she was so busy thinking about the confession."But father, I cannot meet him today. You know it's Jingfei's birthday today. I need to attend her birthday party." Lihua reasoned out because she is still not yet ready to meet his soon-to-be husband because she knew when the time they would m
As soon as the Jian family arrived at their own house, Mr. Jian looks at his son, Li Wei with a questioning look."Care to explain why you entered as a professor at the University where Lihua is studying?" Mr. Jian calmly asked.He is not angry at what his son had done because he knew that his son had loved that little child for so long. It was probably love at first sight on his son's part. That young lady now was just a little princess when he last saw her."I just wanted to see your future daughter-in-law every day that's why I applied there'' Li Wei explained to his father.''And to also see if there is someone pursuing or courting her and I was so surprised when I saw that there were so many students who admire her, even the girls look up to her.'' Li Wei's face became grim when he remembered the scene he saw for seven days straight. She received so many confession and love letters.''You do really love her.'' His father commented.<
"Brother don't go... don't leave me please, please stay awake. Open your eyes, don't you dare close them." the small body of a little girl was shaking her brother's arms, begging him to stay awake. Her hands were covered in blood, not hers but from the boy laying on the ground. Trying his best to stay awake for his dear little sister."Ba..by girl. You must... you must stay alive and please te....tell Mom and Dad that I....I love them so much. I love all of you." the guy said as he coughed and blood came pouring from his mouth."No! No! You... you cannot leave us, leave me, big brother. You promised me that we will be together always." the little girl's voice cracked as she tried to surpass her tears.Seeing his little sister, trying to be strong pained him so much, it's more painful than the wounds he got."I love you Lili." He smiled at his sister one last time before slowly closing his eyes.The little girl just cried while shaking her big
As soon as Jingfei and Lihua were done eating, Jingfei called the waiter and asked for the reciept, and paid the bills.''I'm so full, they really serve delicious food. I'll give their site 5 stars again later.'' Jingfei said while rubbing her flat tummy.The two went out without Lihua knowing that Jiayi is just sitting on the table next to theirs."Jingfei give me the car key, I'll drive the car." Lihua extended her hand to get the car key from Jingfei.Jingfei's eyes widened when she heard what Lihua said. ''No.. no no I'll drive. I will not definitely let you drive the car Huahua.'' Jingfei hurriedly went inside the driver's seat. She didn't want Lihua to drive because instead of going to her house they might end up going to the hospital.She knew how reckless her best friend is when it comes to driving a car. During their second year in college they almost got into an accident when Lihua tried to escpae to see the movie she wanted to watc
The sun beams and shines brightly as it reflects at the glass window, fresh and cold wind gently blew Lihua's curtains.Lihua opened her eyes as the cold wind gently brushed her face, she got up slowly still closing her eyes.Slowly opening her eyes, she blinked for a couple of times, adjusting her eyesight. She then stared at the woman reflected on the mirror. Staring at her reflection is the first thing she do whenever she wakes up.''Bed hair'' she brush her hair using her fingers.Lihua stood up, she stretched a little and tidied yp her own beddings. Even though she came from a wealthy family. Her mother still taught and told her that she should tidy up her own bed and she should not always rely on the servants.The Zhou Household is not like the other prestigious family that would brag their wealth and power to everyone.The long lineage of the Zhou Family once came from a very humble family before they acquired all their we
