1697 Brother-in-Law Has Money
Huo Yao tutted without checking her phone. She simply said casually, “I thought about it. I can still squeeze in some time today. Let’s go.”
“Uh huh.” Min Yu nodded. He was already accustomed to Huo Yao’s personality. He took her hand and walked out. “There happens to be a fair going on tonight. If we go after dinner, we will make it just in time.”
“Okay.” Huo Yao had no objection.
The two of them walked holding hands. Their silhouettes were long as their coats fluttered in the air, looking very cool.
Shangguan Yun looked at them from behind in a daze. For some reason, he had a feeling that he had fallen for some ploy.
He scratched his head and hurriedly followed behind them.
The three of them left the airport and went straight to a posh restaurant.
Since they had already made a reservation, they were shown to a private room upstairs the moment they arrived at the restaurant.
Min Yu’s phone rang. He said a few words to Huo Yao and stepped outside to answer the phone.
Huo Yao glanced at Min Yu, took off her coat, and hung it on the clothes rack. She reached her hand out to take the exquisite menu sitting on top of the sideboard.
One of the menus was in Chinese and the other was in English.
She handed the Chinese menu to Shangguan Yun and picked up the English menu for herself. “Just order whatever you want. Your brother-in-law can afford it.”
Shangguan Yun did not know what to say in return.
He certainly did call him brother-in-law. However, why did it sound so awkward coming from Huo Yao’s mouth?
Shangguan Yun flipped through the menu without paying attention to the dishes mentioned. He bumped Huo Yao using his elbow and asked softly. “What does the old man do for a living anyway?”
“Old man?” Huo Yao raised her brow looking sideways at the young lad beside her.
Shangguan Yun cleared his throat looking uneasy. “I meant Brother-in-Law.”
“Isn’t he taking you to get your gun once we’re done eating? You’ll find out soon enough, right?” Huo Yao veered her eyes lazily and continued looking at the menu.
She paused briefly and looked at Shangguan Yun again. “Why are you suddenly interested in guns again?”
Shangguan Yun acknowledged softly and continued. “Now that you mention it, didn’t you promise to get me a gun previously?”
Huo Yao veered her eyes and replied with a straight face. “You must have heard wrongly.”
Shangguan Yun laughed in a sarcastic tone.
Huo Yao went speechless.
She genuinely did not want a brother like him.
Before long Min Yu returned after using the phone. He saw Huo Yao and Shangguan Yun playing with their mobiles casually. He raised his brow before sitting beside Huo Yao.
“Are you done ordering?”
Huo Yao nodded nonchalantly.
Min Yu placed his hand on Huo Yao’s seat backrest and played with her stray hair casually. “The guy who kidnapped your senior brothers didn’t die.”
Huo Yao raised her head. However, she seemed completely unsurprised. “I get it. He won’t die easily.”
Min Yu detected the tone in her voice and looked at her deeply. “Who is he anyways? Yang Yi could not find him at all.”
Huo Yao leaned into the seat backrest and did not hold back. “I don’t know what fake names he uses, but he’s from the Mirage Base.”
She genuinely did not know the other aliases Shangguan Hou usually used, but he definitely had more than one identity.
Huo Yao paused and added. “His real name is Shangguan Hou.”
Shangguan Yun had been listening with his ears pricked up. The moment she finished her sentence, he raised his head to look at her. Something changed in his expression. “Who did you just say he was?”
