Lu Ji wiped the cold sweat from his forehead and frowned in embarrassment.
Although he didn’t know why Yan Yan suddenly asked him such a question, but no matter how you think about it, it was not a good omen.
And since Yan Yan didn’t ask until Ji Juechuan went upstairs, then he must have kept this matter from Ji Juechuan.
The more he thought about it, the more he frowned, and for a moment he didn’t know whether he should answer or not.
“Assistant Lu, what’s wrong?”
Yan Yan asked worriedly seeing his embarrassed expression.
“It’s okay.” Lu Ji put away his embarrassed expression and smiled at him, “It’s hard to find cities with low housing prices, let me think about it.”
He quickly thought about how to deal with Yan Yan’s problem.
If this matter was really hidden from Ji Juechuan, then as Ji Juechuan’s subordinate, he shouldn’t help Yan Yan hide it.
But he couldn’t do such a thing as directly complaining to Ji Juechuan.
Lu Ji’s eyebrows were all tucked together. He knew that he shouldn’t have stayed for lunch just now. Who would have thought that he would face such a problem after just grabbing lunch.
After thinking for a while, he finally made a decision.
First answer Yan Yan’s question to gain Yan Yan’s trust, and then ask him why he wanted to find a livable city far away from City A.
Lu Ji stretched his eyebrows, as if he had just thought of it, “I remember that City J is not bad. It’s a small city, quite far from City A, and the house prices are not expensive.”
Yan Yan wrote down Lu Ji’s words, and gently nodding his head, a smile appeared on his face, “Thank you Assistant Lu.”
“Why did Young Master Yan ask this suddenly?” Lu Ji pretended to ask casually.
“It’s because I have a friend who wants to move, so I asked about it for him.”
Although Yan Yan’s expression was flawless, Lu Ji could still see that he was “making friends out of nothing”, and his heart skipped a beat.
It seemed that this was really bad.
“Speaking of which, I have a cousin from City J, and his house in City J is about to be sold, should I introduce it to your friend?”
Lu Ji was glad that he really had a cousin from City J, and his cousin also really had a house ready to sell.
If Yan Yan really wanted to buy a house in City J, at least he could know the exact location and ensure Yan Yan’s safety.
Yan Yan had some surprise in his eyes, as he nodded and said, “Okay.”
Although Lu Ji was under Ji Juechuan, he was not worried that Ji Juechuan would get to know his address in City J.
The reason why he was looking for a city far away from City A was because in the book, after Ji Juechuan gave the Cannon Fodder a huge sum of money, he asked the Cannon Fodder to stay far away from City A and not appear in front of his eyes.
After he got a huge sum of money, as long as he left City A immediately, Ji Juechuan would not come to trouble him, so even if he knew his address in City J, it would not have any effect.
Lu Ji sighed inwardly, feeling a little sorry for Yan Yan’s trust, but reason still made him take out his phone and give Yan Yan his cousin’s WeChat ID.
Before Yan Yan could add WeChat, footsteps from upstairs sounded suddenly.
Looking up, Ji Juechuan was standing on the stairs, frowning at Lu Ji, “Why haven’t you left yet?”
Just as Lu Ji wanted to say that he was leaving now, his sleeve was pulled lightly.
Turning his head, Yan Yan blinked at him slowly, “Assistant Lu, shall I walk you out?”
Lu Ji swallowed, looked up the stairs, and saw that Ji Juechuan’s face had turned dark.
How come this scene seemed like something he had seen on TV.
He shook off the messy thoughts in his head, and with a formulaic smile on his face, “I won’t bother Master Yan.”
After finishing speaking, he shook his head slightly, indicating that he would not tell what he just asked.
Only then did Yan Yan feel relieved and let go of his sleeves.
Although he wasn’t afraid to let Ji Juechuan know where he lived in City J in the future, it was too suspicious for him to start looking for a house so early, let alone to someone as keen as Ji Juechuan.
He couldn’t let Ji Juechuan know that he had planned to get the huge sum of money and leave from the beginning.
“Yan Yan, what were you talking about just now?”
Ji Juechuan had already walked in front of him, his expression a bit ugly.
It was not that he didn’t see the small movements between them, and he always felt that there was something between the two of them which they were hiding from him.
“I didn’t say anything.” Yan Yan blinked slightly.
His crow-feather-like eyelashes were long and slender, and his eyes were light and clear, and when he blinked at people, he gave out the feeling of innocence.
Ji Juechuan narrowed his eyes, “Didn’t say anything, why had he not left till now then?”
Yan Yan bit his lower lip, as if he was a little bit embarrassed, he hesitated for a while before saying: “I’ll say, but you can’t be angry.”
“Not angry. Ji Juechuan nodded and led him to sit down on the sofa.
“I asked Assistant Lu, if you get close to others in the company, and asked him if you had been with other people before.”
Yan Yan lowered his eyes and pinched his fingers, as if he knew that he had done something wrong, his long eyelashes covered the thoughts in his eyes.
Assistant Lu did tell him these things just now, but he didn’t ask them.
But if Ji Juechuan thought he was the one who asked the question, he might think he was making trouble for no reason and would hate him even more.
Ji Juechuan paused, “What did he say?”
“Assistant Lu told the truth.”
Yan Yan didn’t tell him directly what Lu Ji said but went around in a small circle.
If other men with bad conduct faced this sentence, they would have already started to feel guilty, but Ji Juechuan was so frank that he even curled his lips when he heard this.
He didn’t have any dissatisfaction with Yan Yan’s sudden check-up this time, on the contrary, he still had an imperceptible joy in his heart, thinking that Yan Yan asked Lu Ji these questions because he cared about him.
Yan Yan saw that Ji Juechuan was not only not angry, but also raised the corners of his lips, and seemed to be in a good mood.
He felt a little strange, did Ji Juechuan not care about such trivial matters at all?
“Want me to watch TV with you?”
Ji Juechuan just wanted to come downstairs to get a glass of water, but now he had no mood to go back to the study. Forget it.
“Yeah.” Yan Yan rolled his eyes and stood up, “I’m going to wash some fruit.”
“Let me go.” Ji Juechuan pulled him back.
He still remembered that when Yan Yan came to the house for the first time, he washed the fruits for him, but he couldn’t peel or cut them into pieces.
Although he also didn’t do these things by himself but he was still better than Yan Yan.
Ji Juechuan went to the refrigerator to get the fruit, then went to the kitchen to carefully peel and cut the fruit into pieces and put them on fruit plates in various colors.
When he returned to the living room, Yan Yan had already started watching TV.
He put the few dishes on the coffee table, and pushed the coffee table closer so that Yan Yan could reach it with his hand.
“Thank you, husband.” Yan Yan’s eyes lit up, he picked up a small plastic fork, forked a piece of fruit, and put it in his mouth.
Seeing Ji Juechuan sit down, he forked another piece of fruit and brought it to Ji Juechuan’s mouth.
Ji Juechuan looked at the little fork, and an idea popped up in his mind inexplicably.
This was the fork that Yan Yan used.
After this idea came up, he didn’t feel disgusted or rejecting in his heart.
He lowered his head slightly, ate the fruit Yan Yan sent over, and his eyes fell on Yan Yan’s lips unconsciously.
Those two lips looked very soft, and because they had just eaten fruit, they were still moist and crystal clear, like juicy jelly.
Ji Juechuan felt a little itchy in his heart, accompanied by some inexplicable impulses.
The phone in his pocket rang suddenly, interrupting his thoughts. He frowned and took out the phone.
It was a message from Lu Ji.
Could it be that Lu Ji wanted to tip him off now because Yan Yan checked on him just now?
Ji Juechuan snorted softly in his heart, he was not afraid of the slanting shadow, even if Yan Yan went to his company to check on him, he had nothing to be afraid of, not to mention that Yan Yan had already confessed to him just now, so there was no need for Lu Ji to inform him.
Even though he thought so, he opened the message, read it for a while, and gradually frowned.
Lu Ji: [Mr. Ji, the green vegetables at noon today were delicious, and so was the bitter gourd. It’s green, and tastes really good]
What the hell?
He sent a question mark over.
Over there, after Lu Ji went back, he thought about it left and right, and always felt that Yan Yan’s matter was not simple.
At first, he thought that Yan Yan bought a house in J City because he was unhappy with Ji Juechuan and wanted to move there.
But when he came back, he thought again, Ji Juechuan didn’t come to the company much recently, he just stayed at home with Yan Yan, and the two of them didn’t seem to be in conflict today.
Besides, Yan Yan’s family members were all in City A, even if he wanted to move away, he shouldn’t pick a city far away from City A.
After much deliberation, he had a flash of inspiration.
Could it be that the “friend” Yan Yan was talking about who was going to move was real, but his relationship with Yan Yan was more than just a friend, so Yan Yan had to find a place far away from City A to hide that friend.
Wasn’t that just raising people outside?
This conjecture scared Lu Ji enough, so he quickly took out his mobile phone and wanted to tell Ji Juechuan, but then remembered that he promised Yan Yan not to tell this matter.
After thinking about it, he had no choice but to send a vague message to Ji Juechuan, hoping that he would feel his good intentions.
Unexpectedly, Ji Juechuan didn’t receive his hint at all, and directly answered him with a question mark.
Lu Ji sighed and entered word by word with a bitter face.
[Master Yan seems to be planning to raise someone outside]
He struggled for a long time, condemned himself in his heart, and then pressed send.
Based on his understanding of Ji Juechuan, if he didn’t cut off the signs before the incident happened, and Ji Juechuan himself discovered it later, the consequences would definitely be more serious than now.
Before things happened and Yan Yan hadn’t bought a house yet, maybe he could save it.
Ji Juechuan’s cell phone in his pocket rang again, impatiently, he frowned and opened the message.
Seeing the message from Lu Ji, he stared at it first, and then laughed in his heart.
Yan Yan was raising someone outside?
What would he use to support, his three-digit balance?
He reread the inexplicable message from Lu Ji, moved his fingers, and typed a few words on the screen.
[Did you drink too much?]
Just as he was about to press send, he heard Yan Yan’s cell phone ring next to him.
Perhaps influenced by the message just now, he subconsciously glanced to the side, and with this glance, he saw the chat box between Yan Yan and others.
The avatar on the opposite side looked very young, and he had sent Yan Yan an emoji, which looked very energetic.
Ji Juechuan paused, with a dark face, he deleted the words he just typed, and typed a few more words through gritted teeth.
[Who is it?]
