The Shen family was not aware that there visit today has got them a big disaster waiting inside.
Shen Rui was smiling ear to ear for her dream was once again achievable and could be seen within the range.
Now that the country bitch has left her future husband she was all ready to forget about her. After all, she has never liked her as Zhen Xiu was someone that came between her dreams and family.
She stole her sister and even dared to covet her dream man.
She could not control her anger whenever she thought about all these things.
"Daughter, control your smile." Shen Feng warned his daughter.
As the marriage was not set in stone yet so they should not think about it before it actually is established.
He was a businessman and knew about these things beforehand. People shouldn't be overconfident while going for their dreams.
As this could very well lead to a big problem if they were not successful. He doesn't want to see their efforts go in waste. It was better to be cautious than being overconfident.
Shen Rui pouted bashfully. This was the only time when she behaves like a little girl that blushed and smiled because of her crush.
"Father!" Her sweet voice chimed in disagreement. " Don't be like that. I will keep myself in check."
Shen Feng ruffled her hair as his excitement was also about to leak out from his calm posture. His daughter was not the only one that was overexcited because of the prospect of getting married inside Lujia. In his heart, he was quietly considering his image and that's why he was able to stand there unhesitatingly and focused.
"Okay! Okay! We should go inside."
"But...the head butler has not arrived yet. He should be here to take us in."
Shen Feng frowned at his daughter's words.
How could she behave like this? She could not understand that the butler was intentionally misbehaving with them by not inviting them over. It was over half an hour that they were standing outside the house like some beggars.
It was a low move by him but Shen Feng knew that this butler had a special place in Lujia. So offending him would not do them any good. For now, they would show there weak self and after his daughter becomes the head lady of Lujia then he could deal with that old man however he wanted so for now, he would tolerate these insulting moment.
"He must be busy. We should get going in and it's not like we don't know the area."
Shen Rui was not satisfied with her father's idea. Just before, he was telling her to be modest and not show the overconfidence in her behavior but now he was making the same mistake as he advised her not to do.
What was the meaning of the teaching then if you can't properly follow your own advice?
"Be patient!" She told him and gazed towards the Lu mansion and its surrounding. One day it would belong to her and she wouldn't have to wait here for going inside this territory.
Everything was within her reach.
Inside the hall, the tension was even more strong as compared to before as Lu Qiqi asked the old butler to call her friends inside from the Shen Family. As she has to maintain her facade in front of Shen Rui, she could not outright stop them from coming inside.
"No need to invite them over." Lu Jian interrupted her in between as she sat down on the sofa comfortably.
It was a sight that pained Lu Ming as everything was getting more clearer through her actions. She was giving priority to an outsider as if he and his son were nothing for her.
Was he wrong in this past years treating her like an independent woman?
It looks like the way he gave her priority and allowed her to do anything she wanted had made her heartless and entitled to feel that everything revolved around her. Now outsiders were more important than her own family.
It was his fault for not looking after his son and carefully pleasing his wife all these years in hopes of getting her acceptance.
Her hate for him was so deep that she could do anything for him to feel low. What kind of woman was she that she could even not care about her son?
His father was right that he was not is a suitable candidate for becoming the next patriarch. He was too kind and open towards others that they tend to ignore his existence.
He failed his marriage and made his son an unfeeling man. It was his mistake to trust her blindly that she would at least care about her son, her blood and flesh. Their son was no different than a robot.
He should thank his daughter-in-law as her presence has made his son more human and approachable.
"Lu Jian!" Lu Ming quietly called his son. "Don't forget your manners. We should welcome our guest."
"Father! You don't know about them. They are pests and not guests that are coming in our home." Lu Jian protested.
Zhen Xiu snickered at the rhyme. Her husband was really eloquent. She was satisfied with him.
"Jian father is right."
As a dutiful daughter in law, she ought to understand her father in law's wishes and reacted according to it. It will make a good impression, as well as her position, will level up in his heart.
True to her thinking Lu Ming approved her decision and was even sure about this good daughter in law. His father's choice was absolutely precious.
There was no doubt in it.
Lu Jian was not satisfied with their understanding and wanted to make things clear to his wife that being lenient will only make people harm you.
He was already trying so hard to get back at her perpetrators but she was underestimating their cunningness and disgusting methods.
She was giving them a chance to harm her again.
"No, buts and ifs!" Zhen Xiu pulled him at the side.
She needed to put some brain in his mind for her to start the revenge.
"Calm yourself! It's not good for health. Besides, you are also troubling your father. We should see why they are here before deciding how to deal with them."
Lu Jian wanted to disagree with his wife but after giving it a thought about her idea he was disheartened but concurred finally.
