At 5 o’clock in the afternoon, Luo Xiu took back all his personal belongings that had been “withheld” from the smiling butler Lin Yi.
Lin Yi asked with concern: “Are you going back today?”
Luo Xiu: “Yes. Please asking Butler Lin to greet grandpa.”
Lin Yi was startled: “Aren’t you going to say goodbye to the old man yourself?”
Lin Yi blinked, and his smile became a little hesitant.
He had been with Mr. Luo for too long, and he had personally seen how Luo Xiu had been the gentle and respectful young master in the Luo family for more than 20 years. The details of etiquette were always in place, and there was nothing like “disrespectful” behavior, in the past only the young master would do it.
Could it be that this time the old man directly having someone forcefully bring him back, confiscating all his belongings and locking him in the room for half a week, really annoyed the coldest person ever?
Luo Xiu had already walked out, put on his watch slowly with his eyes downcast, and adjusted the strap. After hearing no response, he stopped and turned slightly sideways.
Those gentle brown eyes stared at the Butler for a few seconds, and Luo Xiu smiled faintly.
“I’m not like Luo Zhan, I don’t do such boring things as being angry.”
The Butler heaved a sigh of relief, and smiled back: “Then what are you?”
“Besides, Grandpa and I didn’t have the basis of a family relationship for me to be angry.”
The Butler had just let out a sigh of relief.
After a long while, the butler carefully said, “Actually, the old man is very concerned about you, but you have been sensible since childhood, and the young master has a bad temper, so it is inevitable that elders will be more…” Halfway through speaking, he stood on the patterned embroidered carpet in the corridor.
The man who had lowered his hand to adjust his watch, lowered his eyes and smiled silently.
Lin Yi couldn’t go on talking all of a sudden.
The human heart was like this, not a machine, there was always a bias between the scales, even if you don’t want to admit it, the bias would always exist.
What’s more, about Luo Xiu and Luo Zhan, not only the old man, but also people from the same clan and blood of the Luo family, and even outsiders who casually gossiped about them, probably knew about it.
He was just deceiving himself.
“Butler Lin, don’t worry.” Luo Xiu seemed to be able to see through his thoughts, and walked forward with a gentle tone, “Grandpa asked me to come back and think about my mistakes behind closed doors. I have given him an explanation for these three days. As for not saying goodbye…”
The Butler looked up.
Just to see Luo Xiu smile: “Grandpa’s personality is similar to Luo Zhan’s. He wants to care about it. It’s fine if I don’t go, but then he can’t help but talk about it.”
The butler understood what he meant and smiled helplessly: “Then you won’t even say just a few perfunctory words?”
Luo Xiu lowered his eyes with a smile, but he didn’t say yes or no.
Knowing that this meant polite refusal, the butler hesitated and asked, “Just because of that Miss Gu?”
Luo Xiu’s eyelids moved, but he didn’t answer. When he raised his eyes again, he asked a question abruptly, but his smile was gentle: “Butler Lin must think, why did I never refuse or resist before, and just stayed the docile and obedient young master of the Luo family?”
The butler smiled wryly: “Perhaps you thought those people and things don’t matter.”
Luo Xiu inserted a folded piece of paper into the pocket of the butler’s suit jacket, and then he patted it gently, “But now there is.”
The butler seemed to be choked by something invisible.
After the figure disappeared into the corridor and from his vision, he came back to his senses, took out the piece of paper in his pocket, and unfolded it.
Facing the printed lines above and the signature below in silence for a few seconds, the butler smiled wryly and shook his head.
“The more ‘obedient’ you are, the more fatal you will be.”
The driver who was notified in advance went to Luo Xiu’s private garage to drive a car to Luo’s house to pick him up.
When Luo Xiu went downstairs, the other party seemed to have been waiting for a while, “Mr. Luo.”
“It’s hard work for you to make a trip at this time.”
“No, no, Mr. Luo is being too polite, it’s my job.”
Luo Xiu sat in the car, picked up the tablet to deal with the signed company documents, and said to the driver who had started the car, “Wait for ten minutes.”
“Okay.” The driver responded immediately, without daring to ask the reason.
The second hand moved four and a half times on the dial, and the man in the rearview mirror put down his tablet and took off the thin flat glasses on his tall nose, then he leaned back on the chair pillow to rest, as if a little tired.
The driver’s eyes drifted a few times, as if he was looking for something to say.
“Just say it if you have something to say.”
The driver was startled by the sudden voice in the back row, but when he turned around, he found that the man wasn’t looking at him, and didn’t even open his closed eyes.
Driver: This is haunted, yes.
The driver could only hesitate and say: “I went to your garage today to pick up the car, and I saw a second-hand low-cost, cough, cheap car. That car seem doesn’t to be yours?”
The driver said with lingering fear, especially since that small broken car was parked loudly in front of a row of low-key luxury cars, the shocking level of visual conflict was like a donkey standing in front of a row of hard-earned BMWs.
The driver was still in shock because he remembered this too weird scene, but then he heard a nonchalant response from the back row.
Luo Xiu: “It’s mine.”
The driver was shocked: “?”
Luo Xiu: “I bought it not long ago, and I use it for transportation recently.”
The driver: “???”
Before the driver could finish thinking about the serious proposition of “what’s wrong with the minds of rich people”, the front window was knocked gently by someone.
Luo Xiu lowered his hand, and the window beside him lowered.
The person outside the car immediately came to this side, bowed and said, “Master.”
The person standing outside the car was none other than the person in charge of the security team who “invited” Luo Xiu back to Luo’s house from downstairs of Gu Nian’s house the day before yesterday.
“It’s been hard work for you these two days.” Luo Xiu raised his eyes and looked out of the car.
“It’s our duty to take care of the young master’s affairs.”
“Has she been at home these two days?”
“Yes, Miss Gu has never been to other places except to buy vegetables in the supermarket, but…”
Luo Xiu paused and with a blank expression on his face as he asked, his eyes looking slightly cold: “But what?”
The person outside the car said: “I just received a call. Miss Gu came back from outside this evening and met a male friend downstairs. My people can’t go too close, but the two of them seemed to have been entangled for a long time during the conversation, and Ms. Gu was not very happy.”
“…” There was a dead silence in the car for a few seconds, then there was a low-pitched chuckle, as if an invisible barrier had been knocked open in the air.
Gu Nian felt that something was obviously wrong when she was approaching the door of her apartment building. She was originally a highly sensitive character, the kind who would feel suspicious when walking alone at night even if nothing happened.
And in the past two days, she always felt that as soon as she stepped out of the building, no matter where she went, she seemed to have a creepy feeling of being stared at by a pair of eyes.
But every time she turned around directly or observed from the corner of her eye, she found nothing.
Until just now, after walking past the black car, she heard a very light “click” unlocking sound of the driver’s door a few meters away.
Out of the corner of her eye, she could even see someone getting out of the car behind her, barely making a sound.
Gu Nian was vigilant, the phone was slowly pulled to the bag in front of her and lit up, and she pressed the three numbers 1, 1, 0 carefully.
The footsteps behind her were obviously approaching, and Gu Nian turned around suddenly—
The phone was about to drop on the 110 dial key.
Then she suddenly stopped.
Gu Nian frowned and looked at the man who stopped a meter or two in front of her.
The prince of Dingke Media, Zheng Haolei.
Zheng Haolei also saw the screen of the phone she had raised. He stopped and sneered: “I’ve been waiting for you here for more than half an hour, and you’re going to call the police to repay me?”
It was not some unknown stranger, so Gu Nian took a breath, but did not let go of her vigilance.
She looked at Zheng Haolei coldly: “I don’t seem to have made an appointment with Mr. Zheng—You did a private investigation and appeared outside the other party’s house without notification or agreement. This is not called waiting, but harassment.”
Zheng Haolei smiled instead of getting angry: “This is called harassment? Do you still like the flowers I gave you?”
“Threw them away. I have no habit of taking things from strangers.”
“Strangers?” Zheng Haolei laughed, “We have known each other for so long, Ms. Gu just forgot if she said to forget? You really are heartless.”
Gu Nian didn’t want to get entangled with this lunatic at all. Two years ago, she had to get her wrist broken and lose her good future before running away from this lunatic. Unexpectedly, two years later, this lunatic made a comeback when she just showed a little sign of getting on the right track.
Gu Nian clenched her hands slightly angrily when she thought of the situation she was forced into.
“Mr. Zheng, we have different goals and ideas, and I have nothing to say to you. Our team couldn’t complete the script because of our own business. Qin Yuanyuan should have sent an email to inform your company—— Other than that, there is no public or private dispute between us, I hope you will stop this entanglement.”
After Gu Nian finished speaking, she gestured to Zheng Haolei with her mobile phone: “If you come here again, I will call the police immediately. Dingke Media is a big company in the circle, and your public relations department should not want to see the news that their general manager was brought into the bureau in the middle of the night, right?”
Zheng Haolei stood there without saying a word, his deep eyes full of hidden emotions made Gu Nian feel uneasy.
She didn’t know whether it was right or wrong for her to do this. After all, lunatics were lunatics, how could normal people figure out their thoughts.
Fortunately, when Gu Nian was so tense that her shoulders had become sore, Zheng Haolei’s eyes suddenly relaxed when he looked at her.
He smiled at her, raised his hands slightly, and slowly backed away jokingly: “Don’t worry. I’ve seen how cruel you are to yourself. I won’t act rashly this time.”
Gu Nian pursed her lips tightly and said nothing.
“I just heard that you’re back, so I couldn’t help but take a look at you. I should leave after looking—see you tomorrow.”
After finishing speaking, the man actually got into the car without looking back, slammed the door and left.
Gu Nian came back to her senses, she let go of her held breath suddenly, and turned around quickly, Gu Nian quickly stepped into the building, almost running into the elevator at a trot.
When she closed the door and leaned against the wall, she still felt her heart beating like a drum.
Qin Yuanyuan and Jiang Xiaoqing’s three-month course in the screenwriting training class had not yet ended, and she was the only one at home.
Gu Nian sat alone in the empty living room, startled for a long time, when suddenly she heard a knock on the door.
Gu Nian froze, and suddenly looked up like a frightened bird.
At this time, a vague and gentle voice came from outside the door.
“It’s me, Luo Xiu.”
