Granting You A Dreamlike Life - 51
Xu Ruian acquiesced in Xu Xingcheng’s robbing of people when Duan Tianying was an actor, and it was a good thing to accept her as a concubine to stabilize his son’s mind. He never expected that she would be the daughter of Lin Daoshan and Xia Anni who had been missing for many years.
In this way, it is indispensable to visit the door personally to apologize. Xu Rui’an found an excuse to go to the Lin Mansion. Sitting in the meeting room with Lin Daoshan, Xu Ruian poured tea for him himself.
“Xu Bu is a busy person, why is Yaxing so pleased to ask me for tea today?”
“Brother Lin is serious. The Lin family and the Xu family are family friends. Isn’t it normal for us to recount the past in every way?”
“That’s right. The Xu family, the Lin family and the Hong family have been friends for many years, but they are not as good as before in their walks and interactions, which is a shame.”
“After all, the tragedy of the second wife was due to an unrelated person, and now Miss Lin has also found it. It is a good opportunity for the Lin family and the Hong family to let go of their suspicions. After all, Shanghai’s three families still need a tight alliance to maintain. The current stable situation. By the way. I forgot to congratulate Brother Lin for finding his daughter.”
Lin Daoshan knew that he came for Ruomeng. If you didn’t arrive in time this time, maybe the daughter who was finally found would be lost again. Thinking about it is something to be afraid of.
“I believe that Young Master Xu didn’t do it intentionally. You and I had such a time wherever the love came. But now that Young Master Xu has a marriage contract with Miss Hong Jia. You still need to be more careful in your words and deeds in the future. The dream is still a girl who has not been out of the cabinet, and reputation is the most important.”
This is not light, Xu Rui’an smiled. “From now on, I will take care of my rebellious son.”
“Speaking of the Hong family, Minister Xu, I heard that the Hong Gang has been severely suppressed by the Qing Gang recently. Is that true?”
Xu Rui’an shook his head, seemingly very distressed. “Yes, this youth gang has recently occupied a lot of territory, which has brought a great threat to the Hong gang. I heard that there is Japanese support behind it. The Japanese want to support their forces in Shanghai, and the Hong gang’s foundation is too deep. Don’t help it, the rising stars of the Youth Gang will have a better grasp.
“As the saying goes, the extremes of things must be reversed, and the extremes of prosperity must decline. This is the law of the development of everything in the world. I think that the current gang has internal and external troubles and is very dangerous. It may not always be the first place in the Shanghai gang. Unless they turn to Japan. People surrender, but the thing I don’t look down on is the traitor and lackey.”
“This… really hard to tell.”
Lin Daoshan took a sip of tea and smiled: “That’s why the Hong family is in such a hurry to get married with the Xu family. They don’t even dare to say anything about the big issue of the Xu family’s marriage.”
Xu Ruian smiled wryly, thoughtfully.
“Brother Lin is pretty good. So, in my opinion, if Zhong Jing and my family Yuanyuan can get married as soon as possible, it will be a good story. It is better to wait for Mi Zhu to return from the training camp and the two marriages will be held together. Let’s do it. A century wedding in Shanghai.”
When Lin Daoshan saw Xu Rui’an thinking of going with him, he offered to propose early marriage between Lin Qikai and Xu Xingyuan, and his brows were immediately delighted. Seeing that the situation is getting chaotic day by day, no amount of money can be as hard as the gun in Xu’s hand. On this point of marriage, he and Hong Zhengbao have similar thoughts.
Lin Daoshan in turn poured tea to Xu Rui’an respectfully, both of them were smiling, but each had their own concerns.
When Hong Lan rushed into his father’s study, Hong Zhengbao was explaining things to two uncommon subordinates. Seeing Hong Lan coming in, Hong Zhengbao frowned and waved his hand to let them go down.
“Father, didn’t you really hate bringing things from the gang to the house before? How do I feel that our family has been going in and out of many people recently?”
“Recently, there are a lot of things in the help, some headaches, special circumstances in special times.”
Hong Lan is not a three-year-old, and she sees all the changes these days. “Nothing big happened to the help, right?”
Hong Zhengbao took her daughter to her side and patted the back of her hand to soothe her: “It’s okay, everything has your father! My daughter of Hong Zhengbao, just need to be a bride happily, and don’t worry about other things.”
When this matter was mentioned, Hong Lan remembered his intention. “Father, if you want me to be happy, please agree to let me and Xu Xingcheng break the marriage contract!”
Hong Zhengbao frowned: “Why are you here again?”
Before, she agreed to go home because Brother Fusheng told her that Xu Xingcheng would take Tianying out of Shanghai, but she didn’t know why the two eventually failed. Xu Er also agreed to the marriage with her.
“Father! Xu Xingcheng obviously has a girl he likes! He even snatched someone from someone’s wedding to elope!”
Hong Zhengbao pretended to be surprised. “What’s this?”
“It’s true! We all of the Hong Clan kids know it. Dad, their Xu family hasn’t moved at all right now, and 80% of them are wrong!”
“Then Xu Xingcheng has gone?”
“That’s not true, it didn’t work.” Hong Lan curled his lips. To be honest, she still admired Xu Er’s courage in this matter, and went straight to the wedding banquet of others. However, I didn’t expect that Duan Tianying’s master would be killed by accident, which put the three of them in a dilemma.
Hong Zhengbao pretended to be relaxed: “If you don’t make it, then it’s okay. The young man is impulsive, and in the end he always wants to get back on track. No matter how hard he is from his background, he can’t do without the Xu family.”
“Why is it okay? Dad, it’s about reputation! Before I got married, he was going to grab other girls with a big fanfare. What status will I have in the Xu family in the future? I want to break the marriage contract with him!”
Hong Lan’s words have never been thought of by Hong Zhengbao, but at the moment, the Hong Gang is facing the enemy. He can only pretend to be deaf and dumb about Xu Xingcheng’s love affairs, and endures to ask for an umbrella for his daughter. “Lan Lan, who is not a sage? Xu Xingcheng’s failure to make it means that he has reined in the precipice and has realized his mistakes. Our Hong family is not forgiving at this time. If we have to dissolve the marriage contract, that is to make a thorough peace. The Xu family’s face is torn, there is no need for this!”
“That is the happiness of my life!”
“Yes, just for your happiness, let’s not hold on to Xu Xingcheng’s pigtail. Let’s be generous this time, Xu Xingcheng will always be shorter in front of you from now on. If you marry into Xu’s family, You won’t suffer any more! As your father, I always hope you have a good home and won’t hurt you.”
“Do you have to marry?”
“You have to marry! Dad has nothing in his life not to promise you. Only this thing, you have to promise me! No discussion.”
Hong Lan left in despair. Hong Zhengbao sighed and knocked on the hidden box behind the wall.
The wall turned over and Luo Fusheng walked out of it. “Foster father.”
“You heard it all. This kid has never given up on you.”
“it is my fault.”
Hong Zhengbao sighed. “Last time in order to complete the assassination mission, you told me that I agreed with Xu Xingcheng and Duan Tianying’s plan to leave Shanghai. By coincidence, they still did not succeed. Now Lan Lan and Xu Er’s marriage is imperative, so you Stop dealing with it anymore.”
“In addition, the Red Pill Society and the British have never given up on the death of Feng Dayong. You can think about whether there is any handle left. Our Hong Gang has been suppressed by the Qing Gang recently. If this continues, the situation is precarious. If you have something to do with it. If you are caught by someone who makes mistakes, Hong Bang may not be able to protect you.”
“Foster father rest assured, I have a plan. If there is one day, I will automatically leave the Hong Gang and will never drag the Hong Gang.”
“You kid always knows in my heart, I’m very relieved. But it’s the girl… She used to be an actor, for you to break through the sky is a plaything. But now she is the daughter of the Lin family. Don’t forget your father, How did my best brother die? How did her mother die? Is there mountains and seas between you, and it’s no harm to you to pick it up early.”
“Yes.” Luo Fusheng gritted his teeth silently, thinking about it a long time ago. Even if there is no such country hatred and family feud between them, at the level of danger he is doing now, how can he bear to pull her into the water.
In the Hilton Clubhouse, Hong Lan drank foreign wine, and Lin Qikai stopped her. “Lan Lan! Stop drinking, I have never seen you drink so much before.”
“Brother Lin, don’t stop me. I can only use wine to soothe my sorrows. You can also drink with me.
We are not drunk or return! “
“I want to borrow wine to pour my sorrows. Isn’t it okay with you at MGM? At least you are drunk there and there is a place to rest. I will send you back to MGM.”
Hong Lan shook his hand away. “Migaomei? I don’t want to go back. Luo Fusheng is there, I don’t want him to see me like this. Do you know? I see him now, my heart is like a knife cutting. It doesn’t matter if he didn’t like me before, I can like it wantonly He. But when I marry Xu Er, I don’t even have the qualifications to like.”
Hong Lan said that she would drink the wine in the glass, but Lin Qikai took her glass and drank it by herself, a little angry that she abused herself like this.
“You don’t want Luo Fusheng to see it, then do you think I won’t feel bad when I see you like this?!”
Hong Lan was taken aback, as if she could hear the ambiguity in these words, but she chose to pretend to be a fool. She smiled bitterly, and everyone in front of her relationship was a coward.
“I know Big Brother Lin has loved me since I was a child. Of these three brothers, you are the best, Big Brother Lin. I really don’t know who to pour out my distress to, so I can only find you. My father wants me to marry. To Xu Xingcheng, announce the marriage without my consent. I don’t like Xu Xingcheng, I like Luo Fusheng, but Luo Fusheng doesn’t like me.”
Hong Lan laughed at himself. Smiled and stopped again.
“But I also know that Big Brother Lin will always take care of the overall situation, and everything he says is not leaking. Why can’t I take care of the overall situation like you?”
“In my heart, you are the best girl in this world.”
Hong Lan smirked awkwardly. “Thank you Brother Lin for comforting me.”
“Lan Lan, since the overall situation is set, we can’t change anything. Don’t worry about it anymore, okay?”
“You say! Why doesn’t Luo Fusheng like me? Why doesn’t Luo Fusheng like me? I am a majestic Hong Bang lady who has loved him for so many years! I don’t want to be right, I just love the heroic spirit in him. I let him My dad organized a masquerade party, just to muster the courage to confess to her. Who knew it was blocked by the assassin. Later on the set, I did not hesitate to give Xu Xingcheng the opportunity to audition to Tianying, just to get them Determine the relationship so that Brother Floating can give up and pay more attention to me. But for good luck, I finally confessed to Brother Fusheng, but my father messed up the mandarin ducks, forcing me to get engaged with Xu Xingcheng, and let Tian Ying and Xu Xingcheng break Now that Tianying’s adoptive father is dead, Luo Fusheng doesn’t say anything, but I can see that he is full of heart and caring about your sister. She now recognizes her ancestor and returns to her clan, and she might still marry Brother Fu. You say , I silently did so much for Luo Fusheng, sacrificed so much, why God would be so unfair to me?”
Like pouring beans from a bamboo tube, Hong Lan counted the silly things he had done to pursue love. At the end of the count, I realized that I seemed to have been making wedding dresses for others. This may really be fate.
If there is one person in the world who understands Hong Lan’s feelings best, it is Lin Qikai. “Lan Lan, sometimes, silently liking someone is so painful, and there may not be any rewards.”
“Now every time I look in the mirror, I hate why I am like this. I have never hated myself like I do now. Perhaps it is my arrogant and domineering evil deeds that make Luo Fusheng hate me. Hey, Both are self-inflicted. Neither Luo Fusheng nor Xu Xingcheng are the people I was destined for, Brother Zhong Jing, do you think I am very pitiful?”
Hong Lan leaned on Lin Qikai’s shoulders. Lin Qikai didn’t push Hong Lan away, but let her cry, feeling mixed and moved. “It’s not pitiful, a good girl like you, Hong Lan, there will always be someone who belongs to you. God is fair. Maybe someone loves you silently just like you love floating life.”
“Hehe… There is no fool like me in the world, stop teasing me, Brother Lin, you, just continue to drink bars with me.”
Lin Qikai was cruel and decided to indulge Hong Lan to indulge himself once. Hong Lan continued to drink cup by cup, and the two talked and laughed, but both laughed with tears.
