She was at her sixes and sevens as she sat next to the old man.
He looked at her and asked, “I heard from Yinan that your parents are in Country M?”
Zhou Shuang nodded. “Mm.”
She was feeling nervous that she kept her head bowed as she fiddled with her fingers.
“I’ve found out that your mother will come back for a meeting next week.” Old Master got right to the point and didn’t beat around the bush. “Please also inform your father to come back together so we can meet up with Yinan’s parents.”
It dumbfounded Xuxu.
It seemed that the old master came well prepared. It was beyond her imagination.
He actually knew Zhou Shuang’s mother’s schedule.
A parents’ meeting? Her mother was coming to the country for a meeting? Why wasn’t she aware?
Zhou Shuang didn’t know how to react. Her eyes widened as she stuttered, “No—It’s not. I—”
As she was trying to piece the words to string a proper sentence, the old master smiled and interrupted her. “I know, you don’t really like Yinan.”
Zhou Shuang looked down and whispered under her breath, “It’s more than just dislike. I hate him to the core.”
“Ahem, ahem.” Xuxu cleared her throat as a reminder to her.
In front of someone’s grandfather, she should at least have some restraints.
“It’s all right.” Old Master Lu continued speaking to Zhou Shuang with a benign face. “His mother had indeed spoiled that chap. But I think when he has children and becomes a dad, he will definitely be more sensible. So can you give him a little more time?”
Old Master Lu’s good nature caused the straightforward Zhou Shuang to feel torn. She knitted her eyebrows and was at a loss. “But this—this—it’s not possible between us.”
After that, she lowered her head and pouted, behaving like a child in front of the old master.
“Little lass, Yinan has many shortcomings.” The old master maintained his good nature. “However, he also has many good qualities. But as you only have his shortcomings in mind at the moment, naturally, you won’t be able to see his good points. You should slowly observe him.”
“You’ve definitely not known Yinan enough. Why don’t you move to our place to stay for a period of time to get to know him better?”
It dumbfounded Xuxu.
Nowadays, old folks are omnipotent. They will first serve you a bowl of Chicken Soup for the Soul and then abduct you.
She felt like laughing when she saw that helpless look on Zhou Shuang’s face.
She was usually carefree and casual, and she shoots her mouth off. But coming face-to-face with this old master, she seemed terrified.
Zhou Shuang looked to Xuxu for help.
Xuxu pressed her lips together and pretended not to see. She stood up and informed the old master, “Grandfather Lu, I’m making a move first. My parents are still waiting for me at the hospital.”
The old master nodded. “Then you better go. I’ll get my driver to send you there.”
Xuxu waved her hand and declined, “No, no, no. I can take a taxi. It’s very convenient.”
After that, she grabbed her bag and turned around to leave without taking a second look at Zhou Shuang.
She didn’t want to get herself involved in dealing with the emperor’s father. She believed that since the old master had already stepped forth personally, he wouldn’t let Zhou Shuang be shortchanged.
Lu Yinan wouldn’t be able to bully Zhou Shuang.
Zhou Shuang looked at Xuxu anxiously from behind. “Xuxu.”
Xuxu didn’t turn back and merely waved at her with her back facing her. “I’m leaving first. My parents will visit Bai Jing’s father, so I got to go now.”
She walked to the door, changed back into her shoes and stepped out.
Once she stepped out, she stood at the same spot and laughed before leaving.
Xuxu had already informed Mu Li to wait for her at the hospital entrance. She caught sight of Mu Li and Yan Weihong the moment she got off the taxi.
