Chapter 336 - Attentive
Let him go?
Xu Yini and her parents were completely stunned. They almost suspected that they had heard wrongly.
When Old Master Lu had first heard the news, he had clearly been so angry. He had even been on the phone for such a long time. So, why was he now suddenly saying to ‘let him go’?
Wasn’t this change in attitude a little too fast and too extreme?
Moreover, the person was a man!
Was Old Master Lu actually… willing to accept it?
Xu Yini muttered, “But… Grandpa Lu, that person… that person and Huaiyu, they aren’t very suitable, right?”
After all, the Lu family was an aristocratic family with meritorious deeds. How could they not care about such things?
Old Master Lu unhurriedly sipped his tea before turning to look at Xu Yini. He sighed inwardly, feeling a little disappointed.
Of course, he could see clearly what she was thinking.
In the past, his only impression of this child was that she was smart and beautiful. Although she was a little willful, she was, after all, the only daughter of the Xu family. It was understandable for her to be spoiled.
However, too much willfulness led to selfishness.
Putting aside the fact that she had gotten drunk and touched Huaiyu’s book without permission, she had not come here today to apologize sincerely. It was clear that she had not completely given up and still wanted to probe further.
For this reason, she had even dragged her parents along.
Old Master Lu was not impressed with her small trick at all.
In the past, everyone had thought that Lu Huaiyu was not interested in anyone. It was not unusual for her to pursue him. In fact, she had been considered quite courageous.
However, even now that the news had spread and everyone believed that Lu Huaiyu’s heart belonged to someone else, she had still come.
This matter had caused a commotion, yet Lu Huaiyu had just let it go without any intention to clarify anything at all.
Wasn’t this a way to confirm to everyone that he liked the person in the hand-drawn picture?
Yet, Xu Yili still refused to give up and wanted to keep going.
Old Master Lu’s expression became a little lighter, and he said, “There’s no such thing as being suitable or not suitable. All that matters is that it is who Huaiyu likes.”
As soon as he said this, his attitude towards the matter was clearly stated.
The living room went dead silent.
Xu Yini had thought up many excuses before, but right now, Old Master Lu’s words had completely blocked her.
“As you all know, Huaiyu has always had his own ideas since he was young. He’s also a prideful person. Whether he does something or not, is his choice. It’s all up to his likes and dislikes. Even I can’t control him, not to mention his parents.
Old Master Lu put down his teacup and spoke in a moderate tone.
“He has never been interested in anyone before. Now that he finally has someone that he cares about, I have no reason to stop him.”
At this point, there was no other reason to continue.
Xu Yini’s face had become mottled, and she was dazed for a long time.
She knew that Old Master Lu loved Lu Huaiyu, but she had not expected that…
Xu Rufeng glanced at her and apologized again.
Old Master Lu waved his hand, indicating that he did not care.
There was no reason for Xu Rufeng and his family to stay any longer, so they quickly got up and left.
Seeing that they had driven off, Old Master Lu returned to the living room. He stood there in deep thought for a while, then could not help himself from cursing as he laughed out loud.
“This brat has finally done something smart.”
The rumors that were spreading could just be ignored.
Anyway, he still had his granddaughter-in-law, so he could not be bothered with anything else!
Xu Yini sat in the back seat of the car and looked out of the window in a daze.
Before coming here, she had thought of many possibilities, but she had not expected that it would end up like this.
Old Master Lu’s words kept echoing in her ears.
‘Let him be.’
‘He has never liked anyone before. Now that he finally has someone in mind, there’s no reason for me to stop him.’
What he meant was that he did not care whether Lu Huaiyu liked men or women, as long as Lu Huaiyu liked the person.
He would rather indulge Lu Huaiyu than consider other people.
For example… her.
Even though they were of equal status and even though everyone thought they were a good match.
Even though she was infatuated with Lu Huaiyu and had worked hard to pursue him for so many years.
In Old Master Lu’s eyes, she was still worthless.
She could not help but tear up, and her tears started to fall silently.
Hao Yun, who was sitting in the passenger seat, felt sorry for her daughter when she saw how sad she was.
“Yiyi, you and Huaiyu are not fated to be together. Let’s just forget it!”
Lu Huaiyu was indeed an outstanding person. If not, she would not have allowed Xu Yini to chase after him all these years.
It would have been great if they could have married into the Lu family.
However, that was not an option now.
Everyone in the Capital knew that Lu Huaiyu liked men, and it was not just a casual attraction.
Under such circumstances, if Xu Yini continued to pursue him, she would undoubtedly become a joke in the entire Capital.
Xu Yini did not say anything, but her expression showed that she was clearly still unwilling to let go.
Xu Rufeng said in a deep voice, “Your mother is right. In the future, you should try your best to reduce contact with him. There are so many young prospects in the Capital, why must you hang yourself on this tree?”
Xu Yini bit her lip and refused when she heard this.
“I can’t do it.”
Xu Rufeng’s expression became even more unpleasant.
“You can’t do it? Why can’t you do it? You threw a book at him, and how did he treat you? Today, you went to apologize, yet Old Master Lu just said what he said. Things have already come to this point. Don’t you want to give up yet?!
“You are the daughter of the Xu family. You could have any other man! Is Lu Huaiyu really the only one?!”
Xu Yini’s tears fell even more fiercely.
Hao Yun glared at Xu Rufeng.
“Yini is extremely sad right now. Why are you being so mean to her?!”
She had liked Lu Huaiyu for such a long time. How could she give up just like that?
Besides, there was indeed only one Lu Huaiyu in the entire Capital.
Xu Rufeng was still angry.
“You like him, but he doesn’t like you. What’s the use of that!?”
The Lu family was even willing to accept Lu Huaiyu being with a man, without mentioning Xu Yini at all. What did this mean? Was it not clear?
If it not for the support of the Xu family, Xu Yini would have been completely banned by Lu Huaiyu!
How many people were laughing at her in secret? Didn’t she know it?
Xu Yini did not want to talk anymore. She bit her lips tightly.
Of course, she knew all of this.
However, even if she knew it, it was not that easy to do.
Hao Yun sighed and said, “Yini, it just so happens that you don’t have a lot of travel arrangements during this period of time. Why don’t you go abroad with mom to relax?”
Xu Yini closed her eyes and leaned against the back of the seat.
This meant a rejection.
Hao Yun wanted to say something else, but she hesitated. In the end, she did not say anything at all.
The first day of the Chinese New Year was supposed to be extremely lively and joyful.
However, this was not what the Ye family in Yunzhou was experiencing.
Ever since Su Yuan and her childrens’ return yesterday, the atmosphere in the entire villa had been very depressing.
Originally, Su Yuan had wanted to wait for the father and daughter to finish talking before she would talk to them separately.
However, they had talked for a long time in the study. Then while they were having the Chinese New Year’s Eve dinner, Ye Ming and Ye Ci did not speak.
Su Yuan had not found the right opportunity.
The situation continued until the morning.
At the dining table, Ye Ming suddenly noticed the four sets of bowls and chopsticks and asked, “Where’s Ning Li?”
