“Oh, a diplomat.” Old Master Lu nodded in satisfaction. “Her family background is pretty good, so I expect that they had brought their children up well!”
Lu Yinan snorted upon hearing this remark. “Mm, not too bad, good at spewing profanities.”
Old Master Lu looked up and yelled at him, “Shut up!”
It dumbfounded Xuxu.
She deliberated before smiling at Old Master Lu and explained, “Grandfather Lu, it’s better for the two to talk over it. No point getting all worked up here. If they can’t come to an agreement, then nothing will work out. Why don’t you let Lu Yinan meet up with Zhou Shuang first? Let them sit down and talk it over calmly, okay?”
Her words made sense and Old Master Lu nodded in agreement. “Alright, then let the girl know that as long as she’s willing, she’ll marry into the Lu family in an impressive wedding.”
It dumbfounded Xuxu.
They were already at the era in which one could freely choose to marry, okay?
No more arranged marriages, alright?!
“Xuxu, please let the lady know that she has nothing to fear because Lu Yinan has no say in this,” said Old Master Lu with a pat on her shoulder. He then walked Xuxu to the door.
He looked pleasant, a far cry from his earlier imposing demeanor.
Xuxu gave a silly smile. “Okay, okay, I got it.”
Just how desperate was this Old Master yearning for grandchildren of his own?
“Now, the eldest already had children, the second one will get married soon, and Third Yan is next. Next time, when Third Yan has children—”
Grandmother used to be like this too.
Xuxu’s expression fell at the thought of Wang Daqin. She spun around and ran after Yan Rusheng and Lu Yinan.
When they got into the car, the old master was still standing at the door, looking at them with anticipation.
Suddenly, Xuxu thought of playing as a matchmaker to bring Lu Yinan and Zhou Shuang together—in an attempt to complete the old man’s wish of having great grandchildren.
She had thought of it mainly because when grandmother left without a word it had left her with many regrets.
However, this thought merely flashed across her mind.
She inwardly laughed. Marriage was not as simple as getting a matchmaker to bring two people together.
What was more important were the feelings of both parties—whether both of them could get along or not.
Yan Rusheng started the car engine. Lu Yinan sat at the front passenger seat while Xuxu and Su Yue sat behind.
When the car drove to an intersection, Xuxu looked at Lu Yinan and asked, “Lu Yinan, what did you say to Zhou Shuang when you saw her this afternoon? What have you done to upset her that she had to turn off her cellphone?”
Lu Yinan answered in an annoyed tone. “What has this got to do with me?”
Xuxu saw Lu Yinan’s attitude and her voice turned cold. “For your information, she had no intention to keep the baby.”
If it wasn’t because the ultrasound revealed that she was expecting triplets, she would have signed the papers that day for a procedure.
Lu Yinan sneered. “Ha, if she had no intention to keep the baby, then why did she make this matter known to everyone?”
“Lu Yinan, you’ve gone too far.” Xuxu’s face fell. She snapped, “Do you really think Zhou Shuang was plotting to marry into the Lu family? Although her family is less well-to-do than yours, she still has enough to spend even if she doesn’t work for the rest of her life. Would she need to scheme against you? You think you’re so good-looking?”
Lu Yinan felt crossed when he heard those words. He flew into a rage out of humiliation and turned back to glare at Wen Xuxu. “Wen Xuxu!”
Before Yan Rusheng had the chance to speak, Xuxu coldly snorted. “What I said was true. Even if you don’t want the baby, you shouldn’t have spoken to her so harshly. You’re a man, don’t you think you should bear the responsibility as well?”
