Forensic Doctor, Moe Wife - chapter 529
“Thank her for me. And don’t tell your grandfather.” Aunt Lin told Lin Mu’an.
Lin Mu’an chuckled and replied, “I’m not living in the Lin Mansion so I won’t get the chance to meet that old man. So don’t you worry.”
Aunt Lin wanted to say more, but Lin Mu’an left through the door and disappeared from her view right after he finished his words. So, she did not ask him to stay.
She thought that Lu Qianqian would use this in exchange for her support. But unexpectedly, Lu Qianqian did not seem to have this in her mind.
Of course, she was unsure if Lu Qianqian was actually trying to play another trick.
In the private room, Mu Qiqi and Lu Qianqian were having their lunch together. Seeing his fiancée, Lin Mu’an sat down beside her naturally like a loyal dog.
“Where’s your aunt?”
“I let her go home on her own. Otherwise, she would think too much and think that you are scheming.” Lin Mu’an stroked Lu Qianqian’s head. “How do you know my aunt?”
“I saw your family photo.” Lu Qianqian rolled her eyes. “This is the difference between a man and a woman. A woman will care about the whole family of the man she loves.”
“Are you saying that I treat your mother badly?”
Mu Qiqi cleared her throat. “Can you flirt only when you are home?”
The couple exchanged glances and turned to Mu Qiqi. “You are already a famous person in Jianchuan. I must meet you more often before you graduate. Otherwise, once you start working, I might not even have the chance to get your autograph.”
“You are right somehow,” Mu Qiqi answered.
“So, are you really working with all kinds of horrible corpses every day? Aren’t you scared?”
Mu Qiqi was eating dessert when she raised her eyes to look at Lu Qianqian. “It depends. Sometimes it’s a decomposed body, or a rotted corpse, or one with worms all over…”
Lu Qianqian got goosebumps when she heard it. “Please don’t continue.”
“These are still acceptable to me. It was only the last case that I got so scared until I fell ill.”
Lu Qianqian covered her ears with her hands. “Stop talking or I will lose my appetite.”
“Being my friend, you have to get used to it. After all, my hands…”
Lu Qianqian looked at Mu Qiqi’s hands and was reminded of the scene Mu Qiqi was using a scalpel.
“Xiao Qi, stop teasing her already. I bet she won’t be able to sleep tonight.” Lin Mu’an interrupted. “It’s your birthday the day after tomorrow. What’s your plan?”
Mu Qiqi glanced at Lin Mu’an and answered. “Getting married abroad.”
“Are you in such a hurry to get married?”
“Of course,” said Mu Qiqi casually. She would not tell them that it was her man who was in a hurry.
“I shall congratulate you then.”
Lu Qianqian was finally able to divert her attention from Mu Qiqi’s hands to her face. “Actually, I really envy you. No, I mean Sheng Xiao. He loves you dearly. And you have no problem with your in-laws. Besides, your whole family pampers you. Although you live with a rich family which sometimes can be very restricting, you can still be your own self.”
“Don’t you have an ideal husband who vows to be with you for the rest of his life, too?” Mu Qiqi did not think she actually envied her one bit.
Everyone had his or her own fate and choices after all.
After lunch, Mu Qiqi received a call from her man. She had to accompany him to work in Zhongteng. And Lin Mu’an planned to send Lu Qianqian back to her company.
But just as Lu Qianqian entered the lobby of her company, her third uncle grabbed her arm.
“Qianqian, you must help me, or I will surely die.”
“What are you talking about?” Lu Qianqian shook off his hands and let the secretary bring him to a seat.
“Can you… lend me thirty million dollars?”
Lu Qianqian was shocked. Although she had mentally prepared herself, she was still taken aback by the amount that rolled off his tongue.
“Why do you need thirty million dollars?”
“Don’t ask me why. I just want to know. Are you willing to lend me the money?” The uncle looked very restless and messy, as if he did not go home last night.
“Thirty million is not a small amount. Besides, I have just become the chairperson of Lu Holdings. How do you expect me to get you the money in such a short time?” Lu Qianqian asked in return.
“Qianqian, if you don’t lend me the money, my hand will be chopped off. You won’t want me to live like a dead person, right?”
“Is it gambling debt?” Lu Qianqian made a guess.
Third Uncle Lu took a deep breath and nodded weakly. “Yes.”
“I don’t expect that you will be able to pay me back the money. I can give you the thirty million dollars, but you have to give me your shares as a pledge,” said Lu Qianqian seriously. “A gambler will keep making the same mistake after there is a first time. I don’t want you to make me your money tree. You can’t always get money from me. If you agree, I will get the money ready for you. Otherwise, you can only get another person to help you. Anyway, I still remember clearly what you and the other uncles did to me when my father passed away.”
“I am not the one who put snakes in your room.”
“That does not matter anymore,” said Lu Qianqian. “So, do you agree or not?”
Her uncle bit his lips and got up from the sofa. “You are taking advantage of me. I will not fall into your trap. I didn’t expect you to become so arrogant after becoming the chairperson. Just you wait. I would rather sell my shares to other people.”
“Does this mean that you don’t want the thirty million already?” Lu Qianqian asked coldly.
“No!” Having said that, her uncle rushed to the door. Perhaps he was looking for the next person who might help him.
Lu Qianqian sighed and said to the secretary, “Follow him. Call the police immediately if anything happens.”
Although she was not close to these uncles, they were still her father’s brothers. It was not right for her to ignore them totally. But she could not let them control her right from the start. If it happened this time, the other uncles might imitate him and do the same. Then, how could she manage Lu Holdings anymore?
Of course, Lu Qianqian was still very much aware that these few uncles were not kind people.
She must be prepared to deal with these people for the long term.
Sometimes, she felt tired. But because of them, she reminded herself all the time that she had to be very careful and serious since she was sitting in that position.
Going back to her office, Lu Qianqian contemplated on her office chair. Later, she called for her secretary. “Get me the best wedding gift. It’s for my best friend.”
“Is there anything she needs?”
“Forget it. I think I might as well choose it myself. You can just help me to get it.”
Qiqi lacked nothing. She just needed her blessings.
How could a secretary prepare something that showed her sincere blessings to her friend? Although she was very busy, she still took her best friend’s interest to heart.
