Chapter 53: The Lu Corporation’s Eldest Miss

Shen Xi was confused and did not know what to make of her parents’ reaction.
They stubbornly clung to the shopping mall’s doors, refusing to take a step into the building.

Why were they not willing to enter? Could it be that her parents were so poor that they felt inferior and did not dare to enter the shopping mall?

Shen Xi, who did not understand what was going on, could only take a step back, “Alright, alright.
Don’t cling onto the doors like that.
People who see you like this might think I’m bullying you both.
I’ll do as you say.
We’ll enter in a year.”

Lu Shan could sense curious eyes all around her, causing discomfort.
It felt crass.
She shot Shen Yan a look, and the two immediately straightened.

Shen Xi stifled the urge to shake her head in helplessness.
Her parents were behaving like clowns… what was she going to do with them? Although she did not know why her parents were unwilling to enter the mall, she respected their decision and did not force them.

The small family of three rode home together on Shen Yan’s electric tricycle, cutting a homely image under the crescent moon.

The second-hand electric car shop at the village entrance modified her father’s tricycle.
Shen Xi had wanted to buy her father a new tricycle, but he refused, saying he had grown attached to the worn, patched-up bike they were now riding.
Since her father was so adamant about his bike, Shen Xi let the matter go.

Even though the tricycle was not in top form, it still had enough horsepower to ferry them home.
Soon, Shen Xi and her parents arrived home.

Little did Shen Xi know that her simple act of purchasing three air conditioners had caused ripples in the Lu Group’s upper management.

The salesperson stared blanky at the big ‘Warning’ word flashing on his computer, not knowing what had happened.
Even the manager at his side had no clue what was wrong.
Why would a large warning sign appear as soon as they had input the customer’s address into the system?

The manager had no choice but to report the matter to his superiors, hoping they would send someone to repair what he thought was a faulty system.
Otherwise, their latest order to deliver and install three air conditioners would not go through.

Elsewhere, a woman wearing a black business suit and black-rimmed glasses hurried into the Lu Group building in Beijing.

Gossip ran wild as office workers craned their necks toward Secretary Zhao, who was jogging in her black high heels, so different from her usual dignified and steady gait.
It was abnormal.
Had something serious happened to the company?

Zhao Hui pushed open the door to the chairman’s office, quickly composing herself before she greeted the most important person in the building.
“Chairman, the young master of the Shen family just bought three air conditioners at the Wanlu shopping mall today.”

When Lu De heard his secretary’s words, the deep wrinkles on his face smoothened, and his eyes shone as he looked at the Shen Corporation building opposite.
“Hah! It looks like I won this gamble.
Not only did Shen Yan enter a shopping mall belonging to the Lu Group, but he even bought three air conditioners.
The old man across must be fuming!”

18 years.
It had been 18 years since he heard from his daughter.
Who would have known she would be so heartless as to forget her old man in favour of some stinky brat of the Shen family? The mere thought caused rage to burn his bones.

Secretary Zhao frowned, hesitating as she spoke, “I’ve retrieved footage from the mall and gathered statements from our employees there.
According to the salesperson, the one who bought the air conditioners was a young woman, around 18 years old.
It was not the Young Master of the Shen family.
I think…”

Before Zhao Hui could finish her sentence, Lu De interrupted her, confusion evident in his voice.
“An 18-year-old girl?”

Lu De arrived at the only conclusion he could reach.
Slamming the table angrily, he growled, “Is Shen Yan cheating on my daughter? Is this woman his mistress? How dare he toy with my daughter’s feelings.
He’ll wish he were dead when I get my hands on him!” He immediately ordered, “Call my bodyguards over.
I want Shen Yan to celebrate Qingming Festival next year.”

Zhao Hui felt a headache coming.
Her boss was still as hot-headed as ever, going off like a firecracker at the slightest provocation.

“Chairman, please calm yourself.
There are other possibilities.
The girl might be…” Zhao Hui blocked Lu De’s way, earnestly appealing to his side of reason.

However, Lu De waved away her conjectures before she could lay them out for him.
He was so angry that everything boiled down to a point.
His precious daughter, the sweet little girl he had raised lovingly, was being trampled upon by that no-good youngster of the Shen family.
His anger… it was not something he could swallow.
He would avenge his daughter!
