To My Dear Mr. Huo - Chapter 692 - Wanwan, I Missed You So Much
Chapter 692: Wanwan, I Missed You So Much
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Get the Zhan family? Zhan Haoze thought this person was hilarious.
Since when did he ever want to get the Zhan family? Whether it was money or status, he preferred to earn it with his own hands.
He didn’t want anything from the Zhan family at all. In his heart, there was only one outcome in the future, and that was to destroy the Zhan family with his own hands.
He was already doing this now, and it was only a matter of time before he reached the final step.
This was something that even Zhan Haoze had to admit. It wasn’t unreasonable for Zhan Kun to be ruthless and ruthless in his actions. Just look at the power and momentum that the Zhan family had developed in his hands over the years.
But so what? He wasn’t afraid at all.
“You came here just to say this nonsense?”
Uncle Chi choked. Thinking of his purpose of coming here.., he wanted to flare up, but he had no choice but to calm his heart down. “Haoze. The Zhan family is a big business. I think you’ve seen the abilities of the other descendants of the third generation during this period of time. Since that’s the case, why don’t you take a step back? Your purpose is just to get the Zhan family. “Now, I’ll go and persuade the old master to give you the Zhan family. You should also stop your actions, how about that?”
Uncle Chi felt that this was very good. He had followed Zhan Kun for many years, so he had a clear understanding of Zhan Kun’s temper and personality.
Now that Zhan Kun was already so sick, if it wasn’t for the fact that he couldn’t see the Zhan family collapse in his hands for the past month or so, Zhan Kun would have been completely done for.
Uncle Chi had been holding on to the Zhan family’s death warrant for nearly two months, but he hadn’t sent it out. It wasn’t because he was soft-hearted or for other reasons. After weighing the pros and cons, he realized that letting Zhan Haoze take over the Zhan family was the best outcome.
Although he knew that this was the best outcome, he had always been unwavering by Zhan Kun’s side all these years.
His standpoint was the same as Zhan Kun’s. Such a big surprise was a great gift to Zhan Haoze.
Unfortunately, he didn’t know much about Zhan Haoze. He thought that Zhan Haoze was like Zhan Yi and the others. But he didn’t know that in Zhan Haoze’s heart, nothing could compare to his determination to destroy the Zhan family.
Zhan Haoze narrowed his eyes and looked at Uncle Chi’s face.
“Give the Zhan family to me?”
“Are you sure?”
“Of course.” Uncle Chi still had a trace of smugness in his heart. “Isn’t that your goal?”
Zhan Haoze’s lips pursed into a straight line. He looked straight at Uncle Chi with a cold gaze. He didn’t speak either. That gaze was enough to make people unable to stand it.
Uncle Chi suddenly realized that something was wrong. No matter what, he was an old man who had been by Zhan Kun’s side for a long time. How could he be shocked by the gaze of a junior?
But in that instant just now, he actually felt a chill on his back.
Zhan Haoze didn’t speak. Uncle Chi swallowed his saliva and tried his best to steady his voice. “For such a good thing, you should know what to do, right?”
Zhan Haoze, who was sitting on the sofa, finally changed his position. He snapped his fingers. Soon, someone came in.
“Throw him out.”
These simple words made uncle Chi’s eyes widen. He couldn’t believe that he, who had been proud in front of Zhan Kun for half of his life, was dismissed like that.
“Zhan Haoze, do you know what you are doing?” The moment Uncle Chi’s arm was lifted, Uncle Chi’s expression changed.
Before Uncle Chi was dragged away, Zhan Haoze finally stood up. His eyes filled with malice as he looked at Uncle Chi, he slowly walked in front of Uncle Chi.
“I’ve always known what I’m doing, but it’s you guys who don’t know.”
“I don’t care about the Zhan family. All I want is to destroy him.”
Looking at Uncle Chi’s shocked eyes, he coldly curled his lips. “After all, someone has to die for what happened back then. Don’t you think so?”
Uncle Chi was truly shocked this time. He stared at Zhan Haoze with wide eyes. He couldn’t believe that Zhan Haoze actually knew about what happened back then.
“What nonsense are you talking about? What happened back then?”
He wanted to play dumb, but Zhan Haoze didn’t have the patience to play along. He waved his hand and said, “Throw him out.”
Uncle Chi, who had been by Zhan Kun’s side for half his life, was thrown out just like that.
Zhan Haoze sat back on the sofa. At this moment, Tang Hua entered the room. He bent down and said, “Boss, Zhan Yi asked someone to deliver a message saying that he wants to see you.”
Zhan Haoze narrowed his eyes and thought of some of Zhan Yi’s recent actions.
He still had some ability, but compared to his determination, it was nothing.
“I won’t see him.” Zhan Haoze stood up. “Prepare the plane to fly to Lin City. Let sixth brother and seventh brother keep a close eye on the rest of the matters here.”
“Yes.” Tang Hua looked at Zhan Haoze’s expression, and had a rare intention to joke with him. “You want to see sister-in-law?”
It had been two months since Zhan Haoze last returned to Lin City.
Zhan Haoze glared at Tang Hua. He didn’t deny it, but his footsteps were a few steps faster.
Shi Mengwan’s days in the past two months had been very smooth. After the French competition, the studio had recruited two new people.
The new people’s abilities weren’t bad. After trying them out for more than two months, she found that they were all promising. Their design concept and ideas were also very compatible with hers.
The studio’s business was booming. She began to get into work and get more busy.
Zhan Haoze hadn’t come to look for her since that day. She had dreamed of that man, that he had secretly made her house keys again and came to see her.
But when she woke up, she found that it was a dream. After she woke up, she even smelled Zhan Haoze’s scent in the room. This made her suspect that she was hallucinating.
Fortunately, she hadn’t dreamed of Zhan Haoze since that day. This made her feel relaxed, but at the same time, she also felt a little disappointed.
It was impossible to forget. It was impossible to forget for the rest of her life.
Whether it was the first time they met when she was 12 years old, or everything after their reunion, to Shi Mengwan, those were memories that were engraved in the depths of her heart and couldn’t be forgotten.
She was still thinking that perhaps she needed more time to force herself to forget everything.
However, before she could give herself time to calm down, Mother Shi could no longer sit still.
Ever since she met Zhan Haoze last time, Mother Shi had been worried. She had thought that Shi Mengwan was a child who knew her limits, but she never expected that she would get involved with someone who had a fiancée.
This wasn’t something Mother Shi could tolerate. After thinking about it, she felt that she cared too little about Shi Mengwan.
Therefore, after she returned home, she thought about it carefully and felt that she still had to let Shi Mengwan go on a blind date.
The people she met outside were unreliable. However, a blind date was different. The people she met on a blind date were, first of all, someone who knew the ins and outs of the situation. Second of all, as a mother, she could help to keep an eye on things. What could be more suitable and ideal than this?
After thinking things through, Shi Mengwan’s mother took Shi Mengwan’s matters more seriously. The unlucky one was Shi Mengwan.
Her mother arranged blind dates every two to three days. As for the blind dates, most of them were from the town.
Apart from the ones from town, there were also some distant relatives who were far away and had no connection with her. When they heard that Shi Mengwan’s mother wanted to find someone to go on a blind date with Shi Mengwan, they introduced them to her.
They were from the town, the county, and Lin City.
Shi Mengwan was annoyed, but she couldn’t refuse. As soon as she refused, Shi Mengwan would ask, “Are you still unable to forget that Zhan guy?”
As soon as these words were thrown out, in order to prove that she had already forgotten that “Zhan guy,” Shi Mengwan had gone on many blind dates during this period of time.
That afternoon, she was just about to call Xiao Ji to order takeout when her phone rang. It was Mother Shi again.
Without exception, it was about a blind date again. First, it was about the man’s conditions, and then it was about how good they were.
Of course, all of the blind dates were, without exception, able to accept being married into the family. They were willing to be a son-in-law, and the child she gave birth to would be surnamed Shi.
Sometimes, Shi Mengwan couldn’t help but marvel at it. Where did her mother find so many people who were willing to agree to her family’s conditions?
Or was it that men nowadays were already settling for second best? It was said that the ratio of men and women was out of whack. In two years, there would be at least 30 million bachelors.
Shi Mengwan didn’t believe it before, but now that she thought about it, it could really be true.
After all, if it wasn’t for the fact that so many men couldn’t get a wife, how could they casually agree to such conditions?
She sighed in her heart and finally hung up the phone. However, it wasn’t long before her phone rang again.
Shi Mengwan was already feeling weak. “Hello, Mom.”
Afraid that Mother Shi would miss her for a long time, she spoke first, “I got it. Don’t remind me anymore. Tonight at seven o’clock, Starlight Cafe. Don’t worry, since I promised you, naturally I will go.”
On the other side of the phone, Mother Shi’s familiar voice didn’t sound.
“Is Mengwan going on a blind date?”
Shi Mengwan was stunned for a moment, then she realized that she actually picked up the call without looking at the caller ID.
“It’s me.” Wan Xianyang’s mischievous voice sounded. “Mengwan, you didn’t consider me as a blind date candidate. That really makes me sad.”
“Wan Xianyang.” Shi Mengwan really had no way to answer him. “You –”
“Just cancel your blind date tonight. With me around, what blind date?”
“How can I cancel it? That was arranged by my mother.”
“Do you have Auntie’s number? Do you need me to call her personally to explain?”
“Wan Xianyang, stop fooling around.” How would Shi Mengwan dare to let him contact Mother Shi? It wouldn’t be good if there was some misunderstanding.
“I’m not fooling around. I’m serious.”
“Wan Xianyang.” Shi Mengwan had a headache. “Don’t come and cause trouble. I’ll settle it myself.”
With the excuse that she was going to eat, Shi Mengwan dismissed Wan Xianyang away. After hanging up the phone, Shi Mengwan was in a daze for a long time.
The person she liked didn’t like her.
The person she didn’t like liked her. It really was..
Shi Mengwan thought about it and decided not to take this matter to heart. Right now, she had received another order, and the other party had specifically asked her to design it.
Hence, she got busy again. When it was time to get off work, Shi Mengwan, who was unwilling to give up, decided to go to Starlight Cafe after dragging it out in the office.
Xiao Ji, Xiao Qiu, and the others were still at work. When they saw the resigned expression on Shi Mengwan’s face, they were amused.
It was the secret of the entire studio that Shi Mengwan was forced to go on a blind date. After all, Mother Shi had specially come to the studio before she left the last time.
First of all, she wanted to see her daughter’s working environment and thank these people for taking care of her. Second of all, she wanted to see if there were any suitable candidates for her daughter.
After that, from time to time, she would call to arrange a blind date. Since Shi Mengwan didn’t pick up the phone, naturally someone would pick it up for her. With that, the entire studio knew.
Their expressions of wanting to watch a good show provoked Shi Mengwan. She gritted her teeth and glared at those people. “If you guys laugh again, there won’t be any bonus for this month.”
Xiao Ji and the others didn’t dare to laugh anymore. Shi Mengwan finally felt that her stifled breath had calmed down quite a bit. However, she still had to head to Starlight Cafe.
It was said that the location of this blind date was arranged by the blind date. It was quite close to Shi Mengwan’s studio.
Even if Shi Mengwan was unwilling, she had to admit it. The person that Mother Shi arranged was quite reliable. It was rare to encounter the kind of weirdness that people mentioned on the internet.
That was true. After Mother Shi met Zhan Haoze, she started to panic. Although there were a lot of men, they all wanted to know their ancestors.
Under such circumstances, the blind dates that appeared in front of Shi Mengwan were really acceptable.
After entering the door, Shi Mengwan’s gaze instinctively searched for this 18th or 19th blind date of hers.
Before she came, Shi Mengwan’s mother had already sent the photo to her phone. She hadn’t had the time to look at it, so she took out her phone to take a look.
The man wearing glasses looked refined and gentle, but he wasn’t her type. Now that he was here, she had no choice but to meet him.
After looking around and not finding her blind date, Shi Mengwan picked a seat and sat down. She picked up her phone and scrolled through Weibo.
Today, there was one hot topic, which was asking about the ‘weirdest blind date you’ve ever met’. Shi Mengwan casually glanced at it and looked at the various weirdos on it, then she felt much more approving of Mother Shi’s tastes.
Truthfully, if it wasn’t for the fact that she couldn’t forget Zhan Haoze, out of all the blind dates that Shi Mengwan had picked, it wouldn’t have been too bad if she just randomly picked one to get married.
However, today’s date didn’t appear for a long time. Shi Mengwan looked at the time. It was already ten minutes past seven, and the blind date hadn’t arrived yet. This was something that had never happened before.
Did something happen on the way?
Shi Mengwan didn’t want to think like this, but she still had to make a phone call.
However, before she could get through the call, someone had already sat down across from her.
“Mengwan.” Wan Xianyang was holding a large bouquet of roses in his hand. At this moment, when he saw Shi Mengwan’s astonished face, his smile was indescribably bright.
“Long time no see.”
Shi Mengwan wasn’t in a hurry to pick up the flowers that Wan Xianyang handed over. She didn’t get through the call and was still thinking about continuing —
“If you want to call your blind date surnamed Chen, you don’t have to call him.”
Wan Xianyang reminded her “kindly”, “I’ve already talked to him just now. After he heard that I’m your boyfriend, hevery generously wished us happiness.”
Shi Mengwan didn’t know what expression she was going to put on. Looking at Wan Xianyang, she sighed in her heart. “Wan Xianyang, actually, you don’t have to do this. I can handle it.”
Wan Xianyang frowned. “Do you think that I’m trying to help you get rid of your blind date?”
“Of course not.” Wan Xianyang stood up a little angrily and quickly sat down again. He placed the bouquet of flowers to the side and looked at Shi Mengwan’s face very seriously. “I’m serious. Since you want to go on a blind date, why don’t you consider me? Am I worse than those blind dates?”
The bespectacled man was a joke. He didn’t even really do anything besides wave his fists, yet that man backed down. How could such a man be worthy of Wanwan?
“That’s not what I meant.”
“Then what do you mean?” Wan Xianyang originally didn’t plan to meet Shi Mengwan this time. After all, he could only stay in Lin City for two days and he still had a lot of things to do.
However, he originally wanted to make a phone call in front of Shi Mengwan to make his presence known. He didn’t expect to hear that she wanted to go on a blind date with i8ith.
“We’re not suitable.”
“What’s not suitable?” Wan Xianyang didn’t understand. “You’re talking about family background. My family isn’t that kind of snobby family. Our Wan family also has a precedent of having a marriage alliance with a small family. I’m talking about feelings. I’m completely sincere towards you. Aren’t I better than those blind dates that you’ve only met a few times? Besides, even if you think that you won’t have any social life when you marry into Rong City and you’re unwilling, don’t you still have a sister-in-law? I grew up with Huo Jinyao. If you really get together with me, won’t you be able to be with sister-in-law as well? I really can’t think of how I’m inferior to those blind dates of yours.”
Ever since they met, Wan Xianyang had always been gentle and polite. He was humorous and didn’t hide his utilitarian nature as a businessman.
However, Shi Mengwan had never seen Wan Xianyang like this, when he said a whole bunch of words in one breath, before.
She shifted her gaze slightly and looked at the bouquet of red roses. “Because you will never be able to fulfill my conditions.”
“What do you mean?” Wan Xianyang didn’t quite understand. On one hand, Shi Mengwan really wanted him to give up, but on the other hand, she also very seriously proposed her conditions.
“My mother and father only gave birth to two daughters, me and my sister. And I promised my parents that if I want to get married in the future, I will look for a son-in-law.”
“A son-in-law?” Wan Xianyang’s expression was a little baffled. “What do you mean?”
“That is, our family requires a son-in-law to marry into the family. The child born will have my surname.”
Shi Mengwan’s words were especially firm. This time, Wan Xianyang was in no hurry to speak.
He sat on the chair, as if he didn’t expect Shi Mengwan to say something like this. “You, are you joking with me?”
“No.” Shi Mengwan shook her head. “I’m serious.”
Seeing that Wan Xianyang still hadn’t reacted, she said softly, “Wan Xianyang, don’t waste your time on me. I know your identity very well. So, I know that your family won’t let you be my family’s son-in-law, let alone let your child have my surname. Since you know that it’s impossible, why are you so infatuated with me?”
Shi Mengwan had never asked about Wan Xianyang’s family background, but there were some things that she didn’t need to ask to know.
Huo Jinyao’s childhood friend had an impressive family background. His own antique shop was practically making a fortune every day. He had a distinguished family background and had good looks.
How could such a man agree to marry into the family?
Shi Mengwan said nothing more and stood up while Wan Xianyang was in a daze. When she said she was going to the bathroom, she was actually giving Wan Xianyang time to process her words.
She believed that Wan Xianyang understood and would probably leave soon.
She went into the bathroom and washed her face to calm herself down.
No matter what, today’s blind date was avoided. After all, with Wan Xianyang around, she didn’t need to send off the previous blind date.
However, she was happy too early and before the water on her face could dry, Mother Shi called.
“What’s wrong with you? Are you with that Zhan guy again? Why did I hear that you didn’t go on a proper blind date and instead got someone to chase that guy away?”
“Mom, it’s nothing.”
“If it’s not that Zhan guy, then who is it? Wanwan, don’t tell me you don’t want to go on a blind date, so you randomly found a man to brush me off?”
“I’m not, Mom.”
Shi Mengwan felt that there were times when she really couldn’t communicate with Mother Shi.
While she was still thinking about how to explain herself, she kept walking towards the other side. She was walking a little too fast and didn’t notice that there was someone in front of her.
The moment her body collided with someone, the phone in her palm almost flew out.
At the same time that the phone left her palm, Shi Mengwan wanted to grab it, but the person was one step faster than her. He caught the phone and placed it in her hand.
Shi Mengwan stood there and reflexively grabbed it, but she couldn’t care less about what mother Shi said. She just stared at the person in front of her in a daze.
The two of them hadn’t seen each other for almost two months. The man in front of her was still tall and big, but his expression was tired. He had also lost a lot of weight. When he looked at her now, his face was filled with mirth and gentleness.
Shi Mengwan was shocked by his expression and even forgot that Mother Shi was still talking on the other end of the phone.
It wasn’t until Shi Mengwan shouted again that she casually said something and hung up the phone.
As soon as she hung up the phone, her body was pulled into the arms of the man in front of her. He hugged her a little harder, but he restrained himself from hurting her.
He rubbed his chin against the top of her hair, and caused Shi Mengwan’s body to stiffen. She didn’t expect Zhan Haoze to appear in front of her again.
“Wanwan.” She heard his voice. “I miss you so much.”
His voice was gentle and without a hint of hostility. His hug simply revealed his emotions.
For a moment, Shi Mengwan was unable to move. She thought that it was probably because she had been suppressing herself too much for the past two months that she was hallucinating.
Otherwise, why would she see Zhan Haoze in broad daylight?
Not only did she see Zhan Haoze, but she also saw such a gentle side to Zhan Haoze.
She wanted to speak, and her lips moved, but she didn’t know what to say. Zhan Haoze tightened his arms slightly and bringing her closer to him, he hugged her waist with great force.
“Wanwan, I missed you so much.”
He said it again. The weather in Lin city was getting colder, but it wasn’t cold yet. The man was wearing a shirt and wasn’t wearing a tie. The warmth of his chest burned her face.
She couldn’t help but raise her head to look at him. He was also looking at her. The moment their eyes met, he lowered his head and kissed her lips.
At that moment, Shi Mengwan felt as if there were fireworks bursting in the sky.
She had worked hard for the past two months to forget Zhan Haoze’s determination. At this moment, everything was thrown to the back of her mind!
