Zi Yi quickly ran to her computer room on the second story and connected to the signal of the two spherical balls. Her fingers rapidly tapped on the keyboard and very soon, a series of commands were sent out.
Around 15 minutes later, the situation on the other side finally calmed down.
At that moment, she received a message from Lu Jingye. “I’m safe.”
Zi Yi inexplicably released a sigh of relief.
She quickly typed a reply. “Bring those two spherical balls with you. You can use them if anything happens in the future.”
“Ok, rest early.”
Zi Yi knew Lu Jingye still had more important things on hand to do and did not continue texting him.
On the other side.
Mrs. Lu was sitting in the living room, thinking about Zi Yi. Just then, she saw Lu Jianlin coming down from the stairs in a hurry and walking towards the door. She hastily stood up and asked, “Jianlin, where are you going so late at night?”
“I have something to do. Don’t wait for me, and go to bed first.”
Lu Jianlin was about to leave, having said that, when his phone rang. After he answered the phone, he no longer continued to head out.
Mrs. Lu came to his side and asked, “What’s wrong?”
Lu Jianlin put away his phone and said, “Everything’s fine now.”
After which, both of them sat down on the sofa.
Mrs. Lu thought of Zi Yi and asked in a complicated mood, “Jianlin, what if Jingye suddenly falls in love with a girl, what would you do?”
Unexpectedly, Lu Jianlin frowned and said, “Jingye is very busy right now and he can’t possibly have time to like someone.”
Mrs. Lu: “…”
She suddenly didn’t feel like talking with the man who was sitting beside her.
However, she did not manage to restrain her anger. “I’m saying, what if. Can you not be so one-track-minded? In any case, as long as my daughter-in-law has a good personality I’m fine with it. If he truly falls in love, you’re not allowed to object.”
Lu Jianlin looked at her and repeated his previous words. “Jingye does not have time to fall in love with a girl right now.”
Mrs. Li angrily slapped him on his arm. “I’m saying, what if!”
Lu Jianlin: “…”
Why was his wife so cranky tonight?
Lu Jianlin fell silent for a moment before he said, “As long as you like her, I have no objections.”
Only then, was Mrs. Lu satisfied.
However, she thought of her second son and started to be worried again. “Say, do you think Yunxiao can make it back to his grandfather’s birthday? Where did you send him to? Why doesn’t he contact me even after such a long period of time?”
Lu Jianlin looked at his beloved wife’s worried expression and held her in his embrace. “Don’t worry about them. Yunxiao is very safe.”
However, Mrs. Lu still felt uneasy. “I’ve been feeling panicky during this period of time, as if something bad is about to happen.”
“You’re overthinking things,” Lu Jianlin said. “You’ve been worrying over their other halves every day and must have over-worried yourself. You should shift your attention somewhere else.”
Mrs. Lu also felt that she was over-worried. She then thought of Zi Yi and felt that she still had to continue observing her. As such, she threw her worries to the back of her mind and nodded.
After they chatted for a while more, Mrs. Lu felt sleepy and went to bed first.
At around 9 p.m, almost 10 p.m, Lu Jingye returned and was directly called into the study room.
Lu Jingye said to Lu Jianlin, “Father, I’ve picked up Elder Hu. However, he’s slightly injured and so I’ve arranged for him to recuperate.”
Lu Jianlin nodded. “It’s good that he’s alright.”
Immediately after, his expression became stern. “Have you found out who tried to take him away?”
“It’s the Dongfang family.”
