Unable to Divorce After Signing the Marriage Contract - Chapter 16.2
Listen to Only Me (2) – unedited
Once the engagement ended, Wu Xin didn’t relax. Instead, she continuously communicated with Lu Nan’s team and was busy contacting people in Hong Kong to collect information on the Lu’s.
Once the Lu Family’s information was pretty much rounded up, she called Lin Yu He to go back home.
Lin Yu He had already heard Wu Xin’s lecture multiple times before the engagement. Now that she called for him again, he wasn’t so willing to go.
However, weddings and engagements are on different levels. The former was grander, and they even had to hold the wedding ceremony in Hong Kong. At that time, the Lu’s will also be there so Wu Xin was persistent in the phone call.
“You must come once, to memorize all the information on the Lu’s.”
Lin Yu He was urged numerous times, and help as he was, he still went in the end.
The Lin’s and the Wu’s were both based outside of Yan City, so neither Wu Xin nor Lin’s father live in the city. However, for the sake of this marriage, the two of them intentionally moved to the city and had been living here for the time being.
Lin’s father didn’t own a residence in Yan City, so the one Lin Yu He was heading towards was the Wu’s property in the city.
He never came to this place before, and even depended on GPS to get here. Once he got past the doors, the furnishings in the place were unfamiliar to him.
Wu Xin was arranging the files in the study, so the one who opened the door for Lin Yu He was a maid. The maid led Lin Yu He to take a seat on the couch and poured a glass of water for him.
Lin Yu He thanked her and casually checked out the place with his eyes.
The land in Yan City was very expensive, and this house was around 150 meters square. This is already considerable wealth.
Although they were just living here temporarily, the house was fully furnished. The interior design was also customized. The lighting in this place was just nice, and it was spacious enough too. The living room was connected to two bedrooms on one side and the other side was a study room, with a dance studio Wu Xiao Han used to practice dance beside it. At a glance, the house was warm, harmonious, and spacious.
And it simply didn’t have a place for Lin Yu He.
Wu Xin walked out from the study, and whilst she was passing by the main door, there was a sound of keys dangling behind it.
She directly went over and opened the door.
The sound of the main door opening was quite loud, Lin Yu He could hear it too. He lifted his head and caught a glimpse of his father coming inside.
Lin’s father was smiling as he chatted with Wu Xin, “I’ve only just taken out the keys and the door was already opened. Did work end early today?”
He didn’t see Lin Yu He who was sitting on the sofa and continued talking to Wu Xin. While chatting, he even leaned forward and kissed Wu Xin on her cheek.
Lin Yu He was silent as he watched them.
This act was something Lin Yu He was more than familiar with. Once upon a time in the past, his father would also be smiling and kiss his mother’s cheek whenever he came back from work. This act was undoubtedly full of love and gentleness.
It was the same way he now kissed Wu Xin.
Lin Yu He knew from a long time ago.
So it seems that love can be carbon copied and given to another person without reservation.
If love cannot last for a long time, then it can be continued with someone else.
Wu Xin helped Lin’s father take off his coat and hung it on the coat hanger while he took off his shoes and walked further into the house. It was only then that he spotted Lin Yu He in the living room.
“Xiao He is back?” Lin’s father was very happy to see him, “Have you eaten yet? Do you want me to make you something to eat?”
Lin Yu He smiled and said, “I’ve already eaten, Dad.”
“You’ve eaten? So early?” Lin’s father was a bit disappointed, yet he didn’t want to give up just like that, “Then how about eating some more as supper?”
Lin’s father sighed, “Why didn’t you tell me earlier that you’re coming over? I haven’t cooked for a long time either. Since you’re here, I can take the chance to cook, and let’s eat together.”
Wu Xin didn’t usually cook, and it was the maid who did. Once in a while, Lin’s father would cook instead.
Lin Yu He shook his head and said, “I’m already full, Dad. Maybe next time.”
“Alright, if you’re already full then don’t force it, it’s not good for the stomach. Next time it is.” Lin’s father had a regretful expression, and continued after giving it some thought, “How about this weekend? Our family is free too.”
Lin Yu He didn’t agree nor reject him, he only answered with, “If it’s the weekend, I’ll have to check with the professor. If there’s nothing then I’ll come over.”
“Hm, okay.” Lin’s father was smiling, “I’ll wait to cook up a feast for you.”
While they were talking, Wu Xin had already placed all the files neatly on the coffee table in front of Lin Yu He.
After the father and son duo finished their talk, she told Lin Yu He, “Alright, let’s talk about the Lu Family now.”
“The wedding is next month, which is very soon. Since it’ll be in Hong Kong, there will be a lot more people than during the engagement ceremony. The Lu’s will most definitely be there so you must memorize their profile information, you can’t make a single mistake there.” Wu Xin stated.
The first thing she emphasized was still the rules, “The Lu’s are very particular about order and rules. These are very important in the elite society that the Lu’s are part of.”
Lin Yu He had some understanding during this period – these famous clans from Hong Kong were no different from modern society. There were plenty of news outlets and tabloids reporting about them, including paparazzi that stole shots of them and exposed information about them that wasn’t even morally acceptable.
When this news was spread to the mainland, not many here could understand it. Rather, it felt as if they were watching a historical setting drama with its main plotline as competition between big families and clans.
