The Most Loving Marriage In History: Master Mu’s Pampered Wife - Chapter 2084
Chapter 2084: Engaged (1)
The typhoon had passed. After a few days of torrential rain, the weather became better in the next few days. It was a rare cloudy day, and the water on the ground had dried up.
After reaching an agreement with Lan Xiu that day, Leng Xinran and Lan Xiu became closer. The two of them got along well and peacefully.
Lan Xiu went to Leng Xinran’s side more frequently. Leng Xinran had been resting at home for the past few days. After she recovered a little, she went back to class and returned to the Leng Group in her previous position, as Vice President of the Leng Group and temporarily taking over the company’s business.
Leng Mingyi was still in the hospital for observation. Leng Xinran would also visit him every few days, but the relationship between father and daughter was still very cold.
These days passed peacefully for a month. Leng Xinran had more or less grasped the situation of the Leng Group. Next, it should be the matter of the engagement. In the future, she would need Lan Xiu’s help. With her strength alone, it was not easy for her to control Ye Xiaolian. Leng Mingyi still had some feelings for this woman. Otherwise, he would not have let her be so presumptuous.
“Vice President Ran, President Lan Is Here!”
In the large and quiet office, Leng Xinran was giving orders to her subordinates when Secretary Xiao Yang suddenly knocked on the door and reminded her.
Leng Xinran then raised her gaze and glanced at Xiao Yang. She nodded and said, “Got it. Let him in.”
“You guys go back and finish the task book first. Hand it to me before 10 a.m. tomorrow.”
After instructing the subordinates in front of her, she waved her hand and signaled them to leave.
“Yes, Vice President Ran.”
The few of them responded and quietly left. Lan Xiu also walked in at this time. When the few of them saw him, their eyes lit up. After greeting him, they did not dare to say anything more—
This newly appointed Vice President Ran had a very strong aura. She was a cold person, but her skills were very powerful. She had just taken office not long ago and had already fired the two managers of the business department and the planning department. The people in the company were still quite afraid of her.
Lan Xiu also nodded back to the few of them in a gentle manner. Only then did he walk in. Secretary Xiao Yang also quietly closed the door.
“Why are you here?”
Leng Xinran looked at Lan Xiu in surprise. She also stood up and went over to pour him a glass of water. Lan Xiu then sat down in front of her desk.
“The date of the engagement will be set on the 8th of next month. What do you think?”
Lan Xiu took the water, took a sip, and looked up at her.
The 8th of next month?
Leng Xinran thought for a moment, then nodded and said simply, “Okay, I will arrange for someone to go over and arrange the engagement with you.”
Lan Xiu did not object. He thought for a moment and asked again, “You can ask for anything.”
“What can I ask for? I should be the one asking you. After all, I seem to have the upper hand in this marriage,” Leng Xinran replied.
Lan Xiu then gave her a deep look. “Since you put it that way, I don’t know what else to say. Then let’s follow the normal procedure. However, we’ve been together for so long, shouldn’t you take me to meet your mother?”
As soon as Lan Xiu said this, Leng Xinran’s eyes darkened.
Yes, they had been together for more than half a year, but Lan Xiu had never met her mother. He had known that her mother, Mo Shaolan, had been in poor health ever since her divorce with Leng Mingyi. A few years after the divorce, she had married to a university professor and had Leng Xinling with her. Later, that university professor had a heart attack and died suddenly. After that, Mo Shaolan had been on her own. It seemed that she had not heard any news about her over the years.
Even when Leng Mingyi wanted to know news about her, he did not get his way. After Leng Xinling’s sudden death, they rarely heard of Mo Shaolan. However, Lan Xiu knew that Leng Xinran must know about her mother.
In theory, he should still go meet her.
“It’s not convenient for her. You don’t have to meet her.”
After a long time, Leng Xinran lowered her eyes and replied indifferently.
Lan Xiu was stunned. He wanted to say something, but Leng Xinran’s phone on the table vibrated. Leng Xinran picked it up.
“Hello, is this Miss Leng? I’m Li Huali…”
An anxious female voice came from the other end.
“Yes, it’s me. What happened? Why is Director Li so flustered?”
Leng Xinran frowned subconsciously, and her eyes were quickly filled with unease.
“Miss Leng, please come over quickly. Your mother sudden fell ill. She has just recovered from a cold these few days, and she’s a little weak. Her condition is not good now. The doctor gave her a tranquilizer to calm her down a little. But now, it seems that she’s still not doing great. You’d better come over and comfort her. She will recognize you.”
Director Li sounded very anxious on the other end.
Leng Xinran’s expression changed. “Okay, I’ll be there right away.”
After that, she hung up the phone, grabbed the car keys with one hand, and got up.
“You wanted to see my mother, right? Let’s go over together.”
When they passed the office desk, Leng Xinran also glanced at Lan Xiu, her voice somewhat gloomy.
Lan Xiu paused for a moment and followed her.
He followed Leng Xinran into the car and drove straight to the suburbs.
After following Leng Xinran for a while, Lan Xiu finally understood why no one knew about Mo Shaolan’s news—
It was because Leng Xinran had placed her in a nursing home in a very quiet town in the countryside. It was nearly four hours away from City Z even with the fast lane.
It was very quiet here. It was a very peaceful and quiet town. The air was very good.
Leng Xinran parked her car at the entrance of the nursing home. She opened the door and got out of the car quickly. Lan Xiu followed behind her unhurriedly.
“Miss Leng, you’re finally here!”
Just as she approached the door, she saw a very amiable-looking middle-aged woman looking around anxiously from dozens of meters away. When she saw Leng Xinran, she immediately went up to greet her. Her face was full of anxiety and worry.
“How is she now?”
Leng Xinran did not slow down. She asked directly, went up the stairs, turned left, and walked forward.
“Her condition is a little better than before. Her reaction just now was very intense, and she even scratched a few volunteers. Her condition was much more stable before. I don’t know what happened to her today, but she suddenly became ill. She must have thought of something bad.”
Director Li followed behind and said. Lan Xiu did not say anything, but quietly stood behind her.
Leng Xinran frowned. She thought for a moment, and then she was startled. She stopped walking—
Right, was it not Xinling’s death anniversary soon?
“Yes, Miss Leng. She was very quiet before.”
