Huo Shaoheng nodded lightly. “My culinary skills are not good, but I can still eat. However, if you are not used to my cooking, I can order for you.”
Lu Jin was not angry when he heard this. Instead, he happily said to Lu Yuan, “Boss Lu, look, the person you found for us doesn’t know how to cook either!”
“Although Mr. Peter learned it at the last minute, what right do you have to criticize a person like you who has been learning for so many years and can only cook rice and porridge with measuring cups?” Lu Yuan stood up with a sneer, “Besides, Mr. Peter is mainly responsible for your personal safety. Cooking is just a side effect.”
“Ha, why are you throwing a tantrum?” Lu Jin shrunk his neck and muttered, “I’m just saying. Anyway, if you have money, why are you afraid of not having food?”
“It’s good that you know.” Lu Yuan did not intend to talk to Lu Jin anymore..
Lu Jin did not know how to speak to begin with. Now that he had his women, he had nothing to worry about, which was why his words became more and more unpleasant.
Gu Nianzhi quickly tried to smooth things over. “President Lu, you must be careful when you go to the south personally… I’ve checked the history of the Qin orphanage. It’s almost a hundred years old. It’s deeply rooted in the south and has been standing for so many years, so it must have a foundation.”
Lu Yuan’s complexion was slightly better. He smiled and said, “That’s for sure, so I want to go personally. Otherwise, I won’t be at ease.”
Huo Shaoheng saw that Gu Nianzhi was worried and smiled. “President Lu is very capable. No matter how capable the Qin orphanage is, it’s still just a charity. How can it be as powerful as the mercenaries?”
Gu Nianzhi became even more worried when she heard that. She said worriedly, “It’s over. What if they have mercenaries? No, they definitely have mercenaries! President Lu, why don’t you stop going? I’ll go look for Young Master He…”
“Then why don’t I Go?” Huo Shaoheng stood up quietly. He didn’t want Gu Nianzhi to go look for He Zhichu again.
He Zhichu and He Chengjian might have a high position and power, but they had to follow the rules here. Every move they made was under the watchful eyes of countless people.
The Qin orphanage had been established for too long. It had always been a well-known brand in the south.
In the past twenty years, Qin Yaoguang and the Qin group of private hospitals had risen to fame throughout the country.
If they were not careful when dealing with an organization that relied on its reputation, they would be caught in the crossfire and immediately be denounced by the Chinese on the Internet.
Therefore, they were not as good as Huo Shaoheng and Lu Yuan. They could show off in private and cause trouble.
Lu Yuan patted Huo Shaoheng on the shoulder and asked him to sit down. He said with a half-smile, “Lian Po is old and can still eat.”
What he meant was that he was not old and could still fight in the martial arts world.
Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi both understood what he meant.
Lu Jin did not know whether he understood or not. He rolled his eyes. “You only know how to eat, and you don’t want to admit that you’re old.”
“Lu Jin is not old at all. Young girls nowadays only desire a man like Lu Jin. He’s a man of Uncle Quality, and he’s worth it.” Gu Nianzhi kept trying to smooth things over for Lu Jin, and she was also mentally tired.
Lu Yuan pointed at Lu Jin and said, “For Nianzhi’s sake, I won’t argue with you. Keep an eye on Nianzhi. She’s in danger, don’t give her a chance to act alone.”
“She’s my daughter, do I need you to tell me that?” Lu Jin was bragging, but he did not dare to look at Lu Yuan.
He realized that Lu Yuan seemed to have noticed his actions and had been monitoring him.
In the face of Lu Yuan’s all-pervasive surveillance methods, even Lu Jin’s high had to keep himself in control.
For example, he had once placed a small breathing detector in Lu Yuan’s bedroom. It could detect whether Lu Yuan was really sleeping, or whether he was faking it, or if he was not in the bedroom at all.
In the end, he was soon discovered by Lu Yuan and even took out the small solar panel from his breathing detector. How outrageous!
Lu Yuan stared at him meaningfully. “It’s good that you know. Now that she has returned to your side, if you still can’t take good care of her, you can just find a piece of tofu and kill yourself.”
At the moment, his serious mind had been triggered, so he said seriously, “Tofu can’t kill people. Its hardness is completely incomparable to the skull. Boss Lu, you’re actually saying this because you don’t want me to die, right?”? “Boss Lu still has me in his heart. Although your words are unpleasant, I appreciate your kindness.”
Lu Yuan remained silent.
Turned his gaze to Gu Nianzhi, he said, “I’ll send you a message back. Remember to receive it.”
“Okay, thank you, President Lu!” Gu Nianzhi was moved as she walked Lu Yuan to the elevator door.
Lu Yuan’s mood returned and he smiled at her. “Go back and look after your father. I want to see what he’s planning to do next…”
Gu Nianzhi immediately thought of the strange things Lu Jin had said recently. Her heart sank and she quickly asked, “Director Lu, you mean… ?”
“I mean it literally. Your father is a genius. A Genius’s brain is different from ours.” Lu Yuan sighed. “Nianzhi, you’re also a genius. You should be able to understand your father’s thoughts.”
With a bitter smile, Gu Nianzhi said, “President Lu, my so-called genius, compared to my father, is like a firefly competing with the Sun. They’re not even on the same level.”
“But you’re the most important thing in his heart, so as long as you pay more attention to him, he won’t be willing to leave you.” After Lu Yuan finished speaking, the elevator door slowly closed in front of him.
After Lu Yuan left, Huo Shaoheng stayed in Lu Yuan’s apartment.
Gu Nianzhi already knew that Lu Yuan was Huo Shaoheng’s uncle, Huo Guanyuan, so she didn’t think it was inappropriate.
It was just that Lu Jin still didn’t like Huo Shaoheng staying in Lu Yuan’s apartment. Sometimes, he would criticize Huo Shaoheng.
Huo Shaoheng was relatively busy himself. During the day, he was away from the apartment half the time, but he was definitely there at night. He had been there since the sun set.
Gu Nianzhi had no time to “mediate” the “conflict” between Huo Shaoheng and Lu Jin. She was fully focused on preparing for the trial on Monday.
On Sunday night, she went to bed early.
Huo Shaoheng came to her apartment and sat on the sofa in the living room, flipping through a few military and technology magazines.
Lu Jin walked in with his computer and sat on the sofa opposite Huo Shaoheng.
n a polite manner, Huo Shaoheng said, “Uncle Lu, I’m here. You can go back and rest.”
“I’m guarding against you!” Lu Jin blurted out.
Huo Shaoheng was speechless.
Lu Jin looked at him confidently. “This is my daughter’s apartment. What does it look like for a man and a woman to be in the same room together? I’m here, so people won’t gossip about me!”
He spoke as if he cared about other people’s “Gossip.”.
However, Huo Shaoheng knew that Lu Jin did not care about what other people said at all. Perhaps it was not that he did not care, but that he could not hear them at all. This was because he focused on his own scientific research so much that he had always ignored other people’s gossip.
But today, he used “gossip” as an excuse. He was very helpless.
The corners of Huo Shaoheng’s lips curled up. He lowered his head and continued to read the military and science magazines here. He had learned a lot of good things.
Gu Nianzhi had a good night’s sleep. She had no idea that in her living room, the two most important men in her life had “confronted” each other all night for the “ownership” of the sofa in her living room.
After washing up, she went to the living room, which was when she saw that Huo Shaoheng and Lu Jin were both there. Huo Shaoheng was still fine. He was in high spirits, no different from a good night’s sleep.
Lu Jin, on the other hand, was much more dispirited. His dark circles were frighteningly heavy, and his eyes were bloodshot. It was obvious that he hadn’t slept last night.
Gu Nianzhi quickly said, “Dad, go and sleep. I have to go to court today, so I can’t accompany you.”
“No, no, no. Even if I have to sleep, I have to go to court to sleep.” Lu Jin insisted, “I promise I won’t snore.”
Gu Nianzhi uttered nothing in return.
Huo Shaoheng said to her without batting an eyelid, “Let’s go together. I’ll take care of Uncle Lu. If uncle Lu falls asleep, i promise he won’t Snore in court.”
The corners of Gu Nianzhi’s eyes twitched uncontrollably and she said, “Okay then, you two take care of each other.”
Nevertheless, Gu Nianzhi’s slight nervousness disappeared just like that.
It wasn’t until she stepped into Court No. 1 and saw He Zhichu and He Chengjian sitting inside that she became nervous again.
“Hello, young master he and general He.” Gu Nianzhi greeted them.
“Yes, Nianzhi, it’s all up to you today.” He Chengjian nodded in satisfaction and turned to the people behind him. “Qingying, will your media release today’s court proceedings?”
“According to the law, we can broadcast it live, but not video or audio.”Xie Qingying walked out from behind He Chengjian and He Zhichu.
She was tall and voluptuous, but she didn’t look too tall standing next to He Zhichu.
“Cousin Nianzhi, you can do it!” Xie qingying reached out her hand.
Gu Nianzhi smiled and shook her hand. “Cousin Xie, I will.”
The two of them separated and walked to their respective seats.
Xie Qingying sat with He Zhichu and He Chengjian, and in the middle of them.
Huo Shaoheng led Lu Jin into the courtroom with a large group of people. They found a corner and sat down.
There were a lot of people here today. They were the members of the Qin private group’s legal team, the top management, the shareholders of the board of directors, the relatives and friends of the Qin family.
Gu Nianzhi’s eyes darted over and saw Wen Shouyi at the witness stand!
Without hesitation, she flipped through the file she had just received and realized that Qin Yaoguang’s lawyer had summoned Wen Shouyi as a character witness for Qin Yaoguang.
Gu Nianzhi raised an eyebrow and immediately adjusted her defense plan.
She said to the judge, “Your Honor, I also want to summon two people to appear in court.”
The Qin Corporation’s lawyer immediately objected, “The other party can not simply add people.”
“Then how can you add Miss Wen as a witness?” Gu Nianzhi was not so easily fooled.
“We applied an hour and a half before the court session.” The other party was obviously trying to take advantage of the legal loophole to avoid the issue.
Because according to the law here, to call a new witness, one had to apply at least an hour before the court session to give the other party some leeway.
It was apparent that Wen Shouyi had been taught by the same master.
Gu Nianzhi immediately looked at her watch and replied, “There’s still one hour, three minutes, and fifteen seconds before the trial starts. I’ve officially applied to the court to call Wen Dayou and Liang Meili, the two suspects.”
