Chapter 547: Is The Guy Living Next-Door Your Tuition Teacher?
Lu Ziming looked excited as he contemplated the scene in his heart. He could not wait for his birthday to come.
Despite He Xiaoman’s curiosity about why her son wanted to invite her foster daughter for his birthday party, she said, “I will ask her about it when I see her.”
Lu Ziming nodded. He decided to find the time to visit No.1 Middle School next week.
After all, Huo Yao had a bad temper, so she probably would not come to the Lu residence.
Lu Ziming went back to his room.
Only He Xiaoman and her husband remained in the living room. Her husband broke his silence and looked at He Xiaoman strangely. “I thought you didn’t like her.”
She had reacted very strangely when their son asked to invite their foster daughter to his birthday party.
He Xiaoman had not told her husband about the Huo family since she was still unsure of the situation. She merely coughed before she narrowed her eyes and said, “It’s not that I don’t like her entirely. After all, she has lived with us for over ten years, so I have feelings for her more or less.”
Although he had a feeling He Xiaoman was withholding something from him, he did not probe any further. Instead of spending his energy thinking about someone unrelated to him, he would rather focus on the bid.
Meanwhile, at the Huo residence.
Song Ning happened to finish making dinner when Huo Yao got home, so Song Ning told her to wash her hands and join them.
Huo Yao noticed her second older brother’s briefcase around when she put down her bag. She could not help raising her brow. Had he finally dared to come home?
Huo Yao went to the dining room after washing her hands to see her parents already sitting at the dining table. She pulled out a chair and sat down. “Where’s Brother Tingrui? Isn’t he already home?”
Huo Jinyan instinctively looked annoyed when she brought up Huo Tingrui.
Song Ning took a piece of pork ribs and gave it to her daughter before she replied unhurriedly. “Oh him? He went next door to say hi.”
Huo Yao went speechless. “…”
“How long has he been gone?” Huo Yao held her chopsticks as she asked softly.
“Not too long. About a few minutes before you got back,” replied Song Ning. She paused before she added. “But he said that it’s your tuition teacher living next door.”
The moment Song Ning finished her sentence, Huo Jinyan raised his head in shock. “Huh? Your tuition teacher?”
Huo Yao pressed her forehead.
Well done. Her stupid second older brother had gotten her into trouble again.
Huo Jinyan’s eyes landed on Huo Yao. “Is your tuition teacher living next door?”
Huo Yao forced a smile. At this point in time, what else could she say? She nodded. “… Yes.”
Huo Jinyan instantly placed his chopsticks on the table. “Why didn’t Tingrui tell me about something as important as this? He is really asking for it.”
He stood up as he spoke.
Huo Yao’s temples throbbed, and she had an ominous feeling about this. “Dad, what do you want to do?”
“I want to go next door.” Huo Jinyan pulled out the chair.
Huo Yao just knew it.
Huo Yao put down her chopsticks and looked at her father somewhat seriously. “Quit messing around.”
Huo Jinyan instinctively stopped moving. “I kept telling you that I wanted to see your tuition teacher.”
“He’s not free.” Huo Yao pointed at the chair and gestured for her father to sit down. She tried to explain gently. “… He doesn’t like having visitors.”
Huo Jinyan sat down obediently before he looked at his daughter in a quizzical manner. He certainly did not buy that.
