Ke Wanqing, inside the car, couldn’t help but look back at Mo Qianren on the marble steps, her brow furrowing.
Odd – he was clearly an illegitimate child and a teacher. Why had the people from the capital so respectful towards him?
Ke Wanqing never suspected that the profile she had received from Grandpa Ke could be wrong, because in her eyes the Ke Family of the north and the Huo Family of the south were the best in the country.
If not his background, it must be his outstanding abilities? Perhaps he had done something huge in the capital.
Ke Wanqing wasn’t too curious about him anyways. No matter how excellent his skills were, she could not allow Mu Rulan to be with him.
She wasn’t just looking for a man with ability, but one with a good background and riches.
Ke Wanqing withdrew her gaze and looked at her daughter, asking seriously, “Are you familiar with that Mr. Mo?”
Mu Rulan responded with a smile. “We’re not too bad.”
“Hmmph. It’s not that you like him, right?” She continued to speak without waiting for a response, “You must know that I won’t agree with you becoming too close with him. I’ve shown you his profile. Don’t tell me you want to get with an illegitimate child with a sharp mind but no money?
“And building him up from nothing isn’t even an option. Do you know how difficult it is to start a business from the ground up? Even if he succeeds, if someone goes against him then all the fruits of his labor can collapse at any time! I will absolutely not allow this. Put it out of your mind.”
“If you say it like that, it just makes me more curious about Mr. Mo,” Mu Rulan said, unafraid of Ke Wanqing’s cold face.
Even Ke Wanqing is afraid of you ya, Mr. Mo. It looks like you’re truly a strong person ya. You don’t wear any branded clothing or expensive watches, but still manage to give off a feeling of superiority.
And because of this superiority, Ke Wanqing only feared she would fall in love with him, huh.
When Ke Wanqing heard the words come out of her daughter’s mouth, her brows came together immediately, and she spoke angrily, “You dare!”
Mu Rulan smiled softly. “I’m kidding.” Translated by The Novelst
“Hmmph! You better be!” Ke Wanqing had a bellyful of flame. She turned away and didn’t bother with her daughter any longer.
The Zhou Family.
When Hua Fang received news that Mayor Zhou had attempted to frame Mu Rulan and failed, and that he was now jailed, her face turned gray.
Why was it like this? It couldn’t be!
Wasn’t his friend’s son a master psychologist? And they had already coached him over and over. What had gone wrong?
But their misfortunes had just begun. The news began to spread and Hua Fang’s company was directly affected. She could already see the downturn in their future…
They wouldn’t be able to escape moral condemnation by the public.
When Zhou Sulun heard of the matter, his expression twisted. What did this mean, that their family was truly going to fall as he had expected? He was no longer the mayor’s son, nor was he a noble son at all.
Liu Mian was throwing a small party at her new house. She invited only those she was close to, so the party was not very formal.
“Mian Mian, where’s the handsome guy you told us about last time?” A woman looked curiously at the surroundings. Mn, there were several handsome guys here, but she didn’t see anyone eye-catching.
Hearing this, Liu Mian smiled. “Ah, you’re talking about him. I’ve hidden him away. I don’t want him to be seen by other women. I’m afraid he might be stolen away.”
“You’re kidding, right?” The woman looked doubtfully at her. “I don’t believe there’s a man out there that can make even our Mian Mian run round in circles.”
Liu Mian blushed slightly like she had already claimed Mo Qianren.
“Mian Mian, you’re being too stingy. We’re too curious, why not ask him to come over? As long as you’re here I’m sure no one can catch his eye. It’s not like we can eat him up.”
“That’s right, that’s right. Ask him to come over, let us have a look!”
Liu Mian couldn’t stand the chatter and had no choice but to compromise. She took out her phone and said, “I can try, but he’s very busy.”
“How can that be? Mian Mian, use your charm and bring him over!”
“That’s right. Our Mian Main is here, how dare he not come? Ask him to be careful or we’ll steal her away from him!”
“Call him, call him…”
Liu Mian dialed the number, her index finger on her mouth to tell her friends to keep quiet. But someone said softly, “Put him on speaker. If he’s so handsome his voice must be nice too!”
“That’s right, that’s right.”
Liu Mian seemed to have forgotten that she and Mo Qianren weren’t really that close, so she really put him on speaker.
“Hello?” Translated by The Novelst
The women were getting excited and began to imagine the man’s looks.
Looking at their shocked expressions, Liu Mian was satisfied. Look, that was how good her man was, just his voice could outclass all other men.
“Qianren, it’s my birthday today. Do you have time to come over?” Liu Mian’s voice was soft with seductive charm.
Mo Qianren sat in front of the windows of his study. Hearing that voice, he couldn’t help but pull away from the phone a little. Was this Miss Forensics sick? Her voice was quite nasally and the tails of her words were being dragged out. Disgusting.
And calling him Qianren? He didn’t remember that they were so close they called each other by name.
But perhaps he could tolerate it a little since it was her birthday.
