Everyone looked at her strangely. She nearly bit off a silver tooth and mustered up her courage to say, “Mr. Lu, I am Lu Yafeng. My father is the mayor of Imperial Capital. You attended the banquet my family held last year.”
“So it’s Mayor Lu’s daughter. The status is indeed quite high.”
Lu Zhanbei gave a half compliment, raised his eyebrows, and looked at Lin Wanwan. His usually calm tone revealed a rare lack of restraint.
“However, regardless how ordinary her identity is, since she is my female companion, you’re also not qualified to comment on her.”
Although this was an arrogant statement, nobody dared to refute it.
After all, this was the truth.
Lu Yafeng’s face turned white and her body started to sway. She looked as if she was going to faint anytime.
Lin Wanwan bent her head down. She could not bear to look at her expression.
Lu Zhanbei’s words were too vicious. Was it really ok to treat his admirers like that?
The entire room was silent. Lu Yafeng could not stand the looks of ridicule from everyone. She covered her face and stumbled out of the room. Even after she was far away, her low sobs could still be heard.
”Cough!” Lin Wanwan gave an awkward cough, breaking the strange silence.
Lu Zhanbei looked at her coldly and asked, “Have you forgotten that you can’t drink alcohol?”
Could not drink alcohol? Why?
Lin Wanwan did not know that drinking alcohol would trigger her drug addiction. She was worried that she would lose control after drinking, and thus, obediently nodded.
“I won’t drink next time. Ah the house is a bit stuffy. I’ll go out for a walk. Call me when you’re ready to leave.”
Lin Wanwan simply could not stand the way everyone was looking at her, and she left the main hall as if on the run.
Lin Wanwan heaved a sigh of relief when she breathed the fresh air outside.
The way those people looked at her was like watching a disaster unfold. Maybe they even thought that Lu Zhanbei liked her.
It was indeed true that Lu Zhanbei treated her well, but he definitely had no other intentions. This was also one of the reasons why she was at ease hanging out with him.
She was unworthy to seek connections with such a big shot like him.
Lin Wanwan found a swing with a flower stand behind the fountain. As she sat down, she heard footsteps behind her.
“Lin Wanwan!” Lin Qinghao walked out from the shadows. His face, which could still be considered handsome, had a clear look of anger.
Lin Wanwan was stunned for a while. “Oh, Father. You’re here too.”
Lin Qinghao was angered by her cold attitude. “Let me ask you, what relationship do you have with that Mr. Lu?”
“That’s none of your business.”
Lin Qinghao flew into a rage and his voice rose by an octave. “I am your father! Lin Wanwan, I warn you. Regardless of the background of that Mr. Lu, I will never allow my daughter to do things that can’t be seen in public. Cut all ties with him immediately!”
Lin Wanwan was very irritated by the tone he was using, giving her orders. Her face suddenly sank. “Father? Are you fit to be Lin Wanwan’s father?”
Thinking about that little girl who had disappeared, Lin Wanwan’s heart tightened. She got up and stepped closer to Lin Qinghao.
“When she I was harmed by Tao Xinyue, where were you? When I was viciously beaten up by Tao Xinyue and lived my life in hell every day, where were you? When I was maligned by Tao Xinyue, where were you again!”
Every word she said was forceful and filled with pain.
Lin Qinghao actually did not dare to look at her directly in the eyes, and the guilt diluted the anger in his heart.
He tried to explain, “Tao Xinyue is already arrested and sentenced to ten years in jail. I have also applied for a divorce. Wanwan, I know that I have neglected you in the past and that resulted in you suffering so many grievances. From today onwards, I’ll make it up to you!”
