Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When the news of Lan Xiu and Leng Xinran’s marriage spread, Dongfang Liuyun was not surprised.
At this moment, Dongfang Liuyun was flipping through documents in front of Qi Lei’s office desk. When Yang Sheng came over to tell them about this matter, the couple’s reaction was also very calm.
Dongfang Liuyun did not think this ending was strange. Moreover, she had long thought that the two of them should have gotten to where they were today.
“Looks like I can give away the gifts that I’ve prepared.”
Dongfang Liuyun had a faint smile on her face as she slowly closed the documents in her hands. She reached out to open a drawer at the side and took out a document bag.
It was Dongfang Liuyun’s firm shares of the Lan Group. She had already planned to hand over the entire Lan Group to Lan Xiu because now, she should.
Hearing this, Qi Lei, who was flipping through a magazine on the sofa, also looked up at her. “As a wedding gift?”
“Yes, I’ve thought of this from the start.”
Dongfang Liuyun sighed softly. “It’s not easy for Lan Xiu to get to this stage. After Lan Qi left, he was all alone, and I…”
“It’s naturally a good thing that he found a suitable person. This way, you don’t have to worry about him so much. Don’t you realize that apart from me, you care about everyone else very much too?”
Qi Lei was naturally a little displeased at this moment.
“You’re almost an old man now, so why are you still fussing about all this? Alright, I don’t have time to play with you. Give Lan Xiu a call. We’ll go to his house tonight as guests.”
Dongfang Liuyun closed the document and put it back as she said.
Qi Lei gave her a sidelong glance.
“Should I go alone then?”
Dongfang Liuyun immediately frowned and looked at him with displeasure in his eyes.
Qi Lei coughed lightly and replied, “Of course not. Bring the children too, right?”
“The children are with Mother. What are you worried about? Hurry up and make the call.”
Only then did Qi Lei pick up the phone…
Because they had agreed to the party that night, Lan Xiu and Leng Xinran got off work earlier than usual. When the couple returned home, they started preparing dinner. When Qi Lei and Dongfang Liuyun came over, the couple was preparing dinner in the kitchen.
When Dongfang Liuyun saw this, she went over to help and let Lan Xiu and Qi Lei talk on their own.
Lan Xiu smiled and went out as well. Instantly, there were only two women in the kitchen preparing dinner.
In the living room, Qi Lei was sitting on the sofa. He was drinking tea and watching TV. When he saw Lan Xiu come over, he politely nodded and greeted him.
“I didn’t expect you guys to come. I could have prepared more if you had informed earlier.”
Lan Xiu reached out and took the tea Qi Lei handed over. He took a sip and said.
“Didn’t Liuyun say that we’re all our people? Don’t tell me you want to give her face?” Qi Lei smiled and replied.
“That’s not what I meant. It’s great that you guys can come over. Liuyun hasn’t come over for a long time.”
Lan Xiu smiled.
“You’re a married man now, and she’s a married woman. Do you think it’s really as comfortable as before? Even if there’s nothing on my side, don’t forget your new wife.”
Qi Lei gave him a sideways glance that was not a smile. He knew that after Lan Xiu got married, he inexplicably felt a little relaxed, as if a hidden danger had finally been solved.
Lan Xiu also stared at him. Naturally, he could catch Qi Lei’s gaze. He smiled. “Still unhappy with me?”
“What do you think?” Qi Lei asked back.
“I thought you were very open-minded. Didn’t I make things clear with Liuyun?”
“I know. It’s better for you to find someone like that and get married like this. It makes me feel more at ease.”
Qi Lei gave him a half-smile.
Lan Xiu could not help but cast him a sidelong glance. He could not help but lower his voice. “Why do I feel like your heart is like a needle’s eye? It’s so small.”
Qi Lei was not angry when he heard that. Instead, he rolled his eyes at him as if it was a matter of course. “It’s easy to lose sight of a woman if I wasn’t small-minded. I don’t believe that if it were you, you would be able to sit still all the time.”
“I’ve always been rational when it comes to problems.”
Lan Xiu had a look of disdain that said, “I’m definitely not the same type of narrow-minded person as you.”
Qi Lei did not care about him. He still leisurely sipped his tea and said calmly, “It’s Liuyun’s wish for you to have a good home. She’s very happy to see that you and Leng Xinran have succeeded.”
“I know. I originally planned to bring Xinran back to Tanshan Villa later and tell everyone about this. I didn’t expect you guys to be so well-informed.”
Lan Xiu smiled helplessly. “But since that’s the case, I’ll bring Xinran back this weekend. Don’t worry, treat Liuyun well, I’ll play the role of a brother. Of course, Xinran will be your sister-in-law.”
Now, there was only relief and blessings in Lan Xiu’s eyes.
Qi Lei did not say anything as he listened. He only looked at Lan Xiu meaningfully.
“Don’t look at me like that. It gives me goosebumps.”
Lan Xiu gave him a sideways glance and turned his head away.
At this moment, Qi Lei laughed softly.
“Do you really want to be a eolder brother?”
“I should have always taken on this identity in the first place.”
That was how Lan Xiu responded.
Qi Lei raised his handsome eyebrows. Then, he picked up his tea and glanced at Lan Xiu. Lan Xiu happily picked up his cup as well.
At this moment, the two men finally knew that they could truly become friends.
“Oh right, I heard that your father-in-law, Leng Mingyi, isn’t doing too well?”
Qi Lei had always been well-informed, so he naturally knew about this.
“He’s stabilized a little during this period of time. He’s already found a suitable kidney source and is currently preparing for surgery.”
“The success rate of this type of surgery isn’t very low. It’ll be fine, I hope he can get through this.” Qi Lei consoled him.
“Thank you,” said Lan Xiu.
Dinner was quickly prepared. After a meal, the few of them used it harmoniously.
After the meal, Leng Xinran went to clean up the dishes.
At this moment, Dongfang Liuyun handed the prepared documents to Lan Xiu.
Lan Xiu, who was on the sofa, was a little puzzled.
“Right now, you are the only one in charge of the Lan Group. Moreover, I have the Dongfang Group in my hands. I don’t think I have the mind to care too much about it. Therefore, this Lan Group should be handed over to you. I have already signed the share certificate. It now completely belongs to you.”
As soon as Dongfang Liuyun finished, Lan Xiu was startled for a moment and his brows were tightly furrowed.
“Don’t reject it, Lan Xiu. Just think of it as when I was in a difficult situation and you helped me with your heart. I know that this is the best outcome for the company. Lan Qi would also have wanted me to do this. Therefore, you must sign this document.”
