1701 Worried That There’ll Be Another Person Managing You?
The two of them arrived at the Lu family’s mansion together. Su Bei and Lu Heting had just walked in when a man who looked like a security guard rushed out. He lowered the brim of his hat.
“Stop right there!” Lu Heting stopped the man.
Only then did the man raise his hat a little higher. “Mr. Lu, Su Bei.”
Huo Zhong’s face was revealed.
He had spent the entire afternoon looking for an opportunity to escape. He didn’t expect to meet Lu Heting and Su Bei here.
“What are you doing?” Su Bei asked.
Huo Zhong looked depressed and said obediently, “I came here to see Lu Weijian. What if he doesn’t go back to manage the company and I’m left to manage it by myself?”
“You climbed over the wall?” Seeing that the security guard’s uniform did not fit him, Su Bei knew that he did not wear it when he went in. She did not know where he found the uniform after that.
“Over there, look over there!” A few security guards rushed over. “Don’t let anyone get away.”
When they saw Lu Heting, everyone walked over in unison and said, “Mr. Lu.”
“Why are you panicking?” Lu Heting asked calmly.
“A thief came out of nowhere and entered the mansion. We’re worried that something will happen, so we’re chasing after him. Mr. Lu, we’ll go find him now.”
“Over there.” Lu Heting raised his chin.
Those people did not dare to ask what was going on with Huo Zhong, who was standing beside Lu Heting. They turned around and ran to where Lu Heting pointed.
Huo Zhong smiled. “Then I’ll leave first!”
Soon, he disappeared from their sight.
In the Lu family’s mansion…
Lu Heting and Su Bei met Lu Yaolan and greeted each other.
As they were not familiar with each other, there was not much to talk about.
Even Lu Weijian just looked down and picked up some food.
Old Madam Lu and Old Madam Lu chatted happily with Lu Yaolan. As they were grateful for the Fu family’s help this time, they kept bringing them up.
The Fu family’s voices filled the entire dining table.
Lu Heting was a little impatient and finished eating quickly. Lu Weijian quickly said, “Grandpa, Grandma, Uncle, Aunt, take your time. I have something to ask my brother and sister-in-law.”
Since he had spoken, no one had any objections. The three of them quickly left the table.
Lu Weijian pulled open his collar as he walked to the balcony. It was too stuffy and uncomfortable.
“Sigh, when I heard that my mother was back today, I thought it was Mom.” Lu Weijian sighed.
Obviously, he did not expect much from Lu Yaolan.
Even though they were related by blood, he still felt embarrassed when he saw Lu Yaolan’s expectant gaze.
Lu Weijian took out a cigarette and bit it in his mouth. Lu Heting frowned. “You smoke. I’ll sit next to Su Bei for a while.”
“No, I’m not smoking it anymore.” Lu Weijian hurriedly put away his cigarette.
Feeling depressed, he didn’t light his cigarette. He bit his lip and pulled it repeatedly.
Lu Heting didn’t leave. He said, “What’s wrong? You don’t want another person to show you concern and care?”
“Not really.” Lu Weijian scratched his head. “I just think it’s quite sudden. I haven’t thought of how to accept it yet.”
He looked at Su Bei and asked, “Sister Bei Bei, was it difficult for you to accept your parents back then?”
Su Bei thought about it carefully. “It was alright. Maybe my situation was a little different from yours. After all, I was stolen. But your mother has her own situation to consider.”
Lu Yaolan was the one who took the initiative to abandon her child and go overseas.
Of course, their situations were different. Lu Yaolan’s mental state at that time rendered her unable to raise her child healthily. She wouldn’t have gotten better even if she stayed with the Lu family.
Su Bei could not make assumptions.
Lu Weijian was deep in thought.
After Lu Heting and Su Bei left, the Fu family prepared to leave as well.
It was obvious that Lu Yaolan was grateful and dependent on their family because of this matter.
“Have you been doing well outside all these years?” Old Madam Lu finally had a chance to say something to her.
“I’ve been to many places and done many things. Mom, I’ve really let you down all these years.” Lu Yaolan was filled with guilt.
Old Madam Lu said gently, “It’s not your fault. Back then, we were all very worried about your mental state. You were also a strong-headed person and insisted on not letting us interfere. Fortunately, you’re finally back now.”
“Rest early,” Old Master Lu said with heartache. “Your eyes are a little heavy.”
Lu Yaolan’s room was still there. Every day, someone would clean it up.
She was about to return to her room when she saw Lu Weijian. She stopped in her tracks and smiled. “Weijian.”
“yeah?” Lu Weijian nodded.
He wanted to say something, but he didn’t.
Lu Yaolan was the same. She had a stomach full of words, but she didn’t know where to start.
Time passed very slowly, but Lu Weijian was already a grown-up.
“Rest well first. We’ll talk later,” Lu Yaolan said gently.
“Okay,” Lu Weijian said gloomily.
Old Master Lu did not lock him up, but he also told the security guards not to let him out.
Lu Weijian was in a bad mood.
The next day, Lu Yaolan heard that Lu Weijian was managing the Huo family’s business.
Her face darkened.
Seeing her expression, Old Master Lu knew that she was dissatisfied. He said, “Tell me, how can we let Weijian do such a thing? The Huo family’s life and death have nothing to do with us! Why should our Lu family interfere in their matters?”
Lu Yaolan added, “I don’t agree with it either. If there was still hope for the Huo family, I wouldn’t have left the Huo family years ago.”
“Then talk to Weijian when you’re free. Anyway, I don’t plan to let him manage the Huo family’s affairs.”
Lu Yaolan nodded in agreement.
Hearing this from the stairs, Lu Weijian turned around and returned to his room.
Well, now there was one more person to manage him.
Because Lu Yaolan had returned, Old Master Lu arranged for the entire family to eat together on a weekend.
Even Han Qingwan was informed and rushed back from the temple.
Naturally, Da Bao and Gun Gun also came.
Old Master Lu seemed to be a few years younger. He was hale and hearty, and his voice was loud.
Han Qingwan was actually not familiar with Lu Yaolan. After she married Lu Yaode, she was busy managing the company and raising Lu Heting. She never interacted much with Lu Yaolan.
Another 20 years had passed. In terms of friendship, they were indeed not close.
However, the reunion meal was still very enjoyable.
Lu Yaolan could tell that although her parents still doted on her, they did not love her as much as they did back then.
On the other hand, Lu Heting and Lu Weijian were both outstanding. The two elders loved them very much.
Da Bao was smart, while Gun Gun was lively and cute. The two elders doted on them too.
