Meanwhile in a huge mansion in another part of the city, a man stood by the window, watching the distant waves as he listened to the reports presented by the men who stood in front of him.
That man was the current Head of the Hidden Gu family. The colossus who had ruled the entire T city for generations and who's name alone struck fear into the hearts of many countries across the world.
Xanfeng Gu, the current Head of the Gu family and elder brother to Max, was known in the hacker world as Fade. he was the only one in the world who could operate using the Gu family's insignia. However at that moment, he looked nothing like the stern family head, instead he had the demeanor of a father looking out for his young daughter.
"You mean to tell me that she agreed to marrying the brat from the Feng family?" He spoke up, his dipleasure showing.
"Yes master" one of men responded.
Xanfeng Gu sighed,
Lu Xinya watched the man, her expression neutral. She'd seen plenty like him, arrogant and annoying old men who thought they were better than everyone, and refused to consider the opinions of young people, especially younger people such as herself. Lu Xinya was about to question him when she realized she didn't even know his name. Not wanting to be overly harsh, she asked sweetly, "What do you call yourself again?" The man blanched, at the end, he was still a company executive, yet she had calmly disrespected him, but despite the anger burning through him he could do nothing. Years of being overly cautious had thought him to do anything he wasn't sure of and so he would swallow that day's humiliation. But he would mark today, the humiliation was one he would return a hundred folds.over the moment he got the chance to. A moment Lu Xinya would never give anyone. " My name is Song Fang" " Okay, Mr Song, I have a question on these proposal
Mu Feng gritted his teeth. He really didn't know what had possessed him to call that annoying girl. He would have kept his sanity by simply staying on his own but no, he'd allowed the snippets of conversation he'd overheard this morning get to him. He sighed. She was obviously fine, at least she still had the strength to scold him. With those thoughts he focused back in his work. But focusing on his work was easier said than done. His mind kept returning to what he'd heard this morning. His mom had implied that Lu Xinya was having issues with her work and other related issues and from what he'd heard it sounded like her dad didn't care about her so he'd wanted to ask her if she needed any help from him but she'd snubbed him completely. 'Damn, he must be a fool to attempt helping that annoying girl'He tried to focus his attention back on his work.But, his mother's words were still hunting his memory.
Mu Feng dropped the pen in his hand and picked up his phone. He sent a text to Lu Xinya asking if she was free and if she could accompany him to a charity event.He didn't want to call because he didn't know if she was busy or if she had gone for the meeting she told him she had.After waiting for a few minutes and there was no reply he turned his attention to the documents in front of him. He'd call her later, he decided.Meanwhile, a certain person was sitting in the boardroom with the majority of the board members and the department heads.Projects after projects were discussed and conclusions where reached for most of the projects when someone mentioned the fact that Xinya had been asked to go through old files and check if anything had been missed.Xinya stared at the middle aged man who suddenly called her out. It didn't take extraordinary intelligence to tell that the man had been quite intentional about his act.She

The hall was rowdy as the guests danced. Xinya walked in, watching the crowd was quite fun as there were different characters to be seen. The arrogant young men who felt the world was theirs, the elderly men who had spent their lives in servitude being yes men. There were the young women caked in make-up who were seeking their next catch, the elderly women scouring the grounds for their potential sons and daughters- in-law not to mention the celebrities who felt like they were on top of the world because they had found themselves in a gathering of the cream of the crop. They swished around in their in season gowns and competed with who had the most sought after jewelry and who glittered the most. Maybe it was this glitter that made them similar to the noveau rich and quite different from the true daughters of nobility.She smiled, this
