“Then Huixian and I will leave first,” Du Luo said.
Su Huixian smiled and said, “Su Bei is leaving too. Let’s go out together?”
Su Bei agreed and went out with them. It was a little cold outside, so Du Luo took off his coat and wrapped it around Su Huixian’s shoulders.
Su Huixian turned her head to Su Bei and smiled. It was a kind of smile that was full of pride, showing off, and other complicated emotions.
A high-end Rolls-Royce stopped in front of them. The driver then went out of the car and opened the door for Du Luo and Su Huixian.
Du Luo supported Su Huixian to get into the car. But before she could get in, she stopped and turned to Su Bei. She then said with a smile, “Su Bei, come home when you have time. We all miss you.”
Su Bei just smiled but did not say anything.
The Su family’s mansion was no longer her home. Especially that her father’s disappointment and distrust towards her had already reached their peak that day she left.
Su Bei’s hatred towards Su Huixian and her stepmother showed on her face. She knew that they had hidden evil intentions. Outsiders could only see the surface.
What was more, her father had already chosen Su Huixian over her.
So for her, there was no reason to go home and please her father.
Su Bei was about to hail a taxi when a waiter rushed over to her and whispered, “Miss Su, a gentleman named Lu Heting is inviting you to his room upstairs.”
Lu Heting wanted to see her?
Did he finally remember what happened five years ago?
It was inevitable for other people to have some ambiguous conjectures when they saw her meeting a man in a hotel. But at this moment, she couldn’t think of any other places appropriate for their meeting.
Su Bei entered Hao Jue Hotel again. She took the elevator and pressed the button of the floor where Lu Heting’s room was.
When she arrived at the door, she took a deep breath before knocking on the door.
“Come in,” said a man inside in a cold and clear voice.
She pushed the door open and walked in. Lu Heting was sitting on the sofa, looking more indifferent and alienated than before.
In a short time, it seemed that he had gotten much colder.
Su Bei looked at him secretly from the corner of her eyes. Thinking that Da Bao would also look like him when he grew up, she felt happy. After all, her son had such a handsome father.
“Mr. Lu… Mr. Lu, do you remember me now?” she asked politely.
“No,” Lu Heting answered coldly.
Su Bei was rendered speechless upon hearing his single-word answer. But then, she put on a bright smile and asked, “Then, can we know each other now?”
“That sounds good,” he replied plainly.
She still smiled. “I really thought that Mr. Lu would never see me again.”
Actually, Lu Heting really had such a plan.
After all, she just disappeared five years ago, and he didn’t even know why. Time passed by in a flash. Now, she came back.
Who did she think he was? A disposable man that she used and then just discarded?
However, after seeing the gift she gave him, he changed his mind.
“Mr. Lu, please forgive me if I sound intrusive. But, may I ask you a question?” Su Bei said straightforwardly.
Lu Heting squinted at her. “You’ve already made intrusions more than once tonight. So, what’s the harm in making another one?”
Su Bei pursed her lips and asked, “Mr. Lu, have you signed the divorce agreement that year?”
Lu Heting’s Adam’s apple churned up and down violently.
Su Bei’s question was so lethal that it hit the bottom of his heart hard. He almost knocked over the coffee cup on the table.
The last time he behaved like this was when he received the divorce agreement.
