Chapter 09 Boyfriend
Why did the Lu family send invitations to Zhuang Jingchun?
Xu Xizhou suddenly remembered that a big event would happen soon, Lu Rong’s coming-of-age ceremony.
It was called the coming of age ceremony, but Lu Feng just wanted to find an opportunity to announce to the upper-class circle in Wancheng that Lu Rong was the true heir of the Lu family.
In his previous life, half a month before the coming of age ceremony, the Lu family invited someone to train Lu Rong on etiquette and conversation, and Lu Rong lived up to their expectations. He behaved decently at the coming of age ceremony, with a gentle smile and a handsome face. Naturally, he won the favor of many people.
As for him, the vicious supporting character, because he was unwilling to be ignored, he stayed in the corner and complained about how Lu Rong was only pretending. The result was that someone recorded it and handed it to Lu Feng. Lu Feng was already dissatisfied with him, and after hearing the recording, he was even more disappointed, so he stopped all his pocket money.
Lu Rong’s coming of age ceremony was the beginning of his breaking off the relationship with the Lu family.
Zhuang Jingchun realized the atmosphere had become strangely quiet, perhaps because he mentioned the Lu family.
He thought for a few seconds before saying, “The invitation says I can bring company. Do you want to go?”
Xu Xizhou shook his head, “Forget it, they probably wouldn’t be happy to see me, I don’t want to ruin the atmosphere.”
As soon as Xu Xizhou finished speaking, the loud ringtone of his mobile phone suddenly rang. His expression changed slightly when he saw the caller ID.
His once best friend, who would push him into the abyss, has returned to China.
Xu Xizhou went to the balcony to answer the phone.
“F*ck, Lao Xu, why didn’t you tell me earlier about such a big thing?! I just got back from Africa, and those projects are killing me. This poor place in Africa is really not suitable for people to stay in, damn it. Where are you now? Will you come to my place tonight?”
Wang Miao was going off like a firecracker until he realized that there was no sound from the other end.
“Lao Xu, what are you doing? Are you listening? Say something.”
Xu Xizhou took a deep breath in the chilly air. If he hadn’t been reborn, maybe he would trust Wang Miao as unreservedly as he did in his previous life, But listening to this familiar voice now, he only felt cold to the bone.
“Listen to me, we can’t let this small setback hinder us. I heard that you left the Lu family. Are you stupid? Didn’t you just let that Lu Rong succeed? My mother also received the Lu family’s invitation that said they’re holding a coming-of-age ceremony for Lu Rong this weekend. I was so angry that I almost wanted to tear up that invitation!
“But then I thought about it, isn’t this a good opportunity to meet that Lu Rong? He’s going to have a coming-of-age ceremony, right? I’ll go over and give him a ‘surprise’, let’s see if he dares to bully you!”
Xu Xizhou listened to his words expressionlessly. Wang Miao said so, but on the day of the coming of age ceremony, as though he was getting possessed by something, he fell in love at first sight with Lu Rong. Not to mention bullying Lu Rong, he didn’t even dare to say harsh words in front of him.
The events of the previous life passed through Xu Xizhou’s mind. He closed his eyes, and when he opened them again, there was a frost-like chill in his eyes.
Seeing him return from the balcony, Zhuang Jingchun asked subconsciously, “What’s the matter?”
“I changed my mind.” Xu Xizhou pulled the corners of his mouth, a touch of fearlessness and frivolity in his eyes.
“I’ll go to the Lu family’s coming of age ceremony.”
Two days later.
When Xu Xizhou came out of the club gate, the familiar black Bentley was waiting there.
He said hello to Housekeeper Chen and got into the car.
“Young Master will go directly from the company. Do you want to go there directly or …”
“Go somewhere first.”
Half an hour later, the black Bentley stopped in front of an antique mansion. Xu Xizhou got out of the car. Within two steps, a figure flew over and hugged him vigorously.
“This fellow, you finally come, I’ve been waiting for you for a long time.
The speaker was none other than Wang Miao. He’s a rarely seen androgynous, with a beautiful and somewhat feminine face. The Wang family and the Lu family were good friends, and they grew up in the same yard since they were young. Because he looked like a girl, Wang Miao was often bullied by many boys, and some even gave him disgusting nicknames. After Xu Xizhou found out, he beat up the boys who bullied him one by one without saying a word. No one has dared to provoke Wang Miao ever since.
The deep friendship between them was also established in this way.
A trace of struggle flashed across Xu Xizhou’s face, and he stretched out his hand to push him away.
Only then did Wang Miao realize that Xu Xizhou seemed somewhat different. He thought the boy got a psychological blow and was depressed, he subconsciously wanted to encourage him, but out of the corner of his eye, he suddenly caught a glimpse of the black Bentley behind him.
“This car… Who brought you here?”
He thought back to how Xu Xizhou had moved out of the Lu family, he shouldn’t have had the chance to ride in such a nice car.
Xu Xizhou didn’t want to tell him about Zhuang Jing, so he just replied perfunctorily.
“Damn it, when did you have a closer friend than me?” Wang Miao looked at him with some jealousy.
This familiar expression reminded Xu Xizhou of those times when they used to meet. Obviously, nothing had happened at this time, and it didn’t seem fair for him to treat Wang Miao so indifferently.
“You will see later.”
Xu Xizhou smiled and squeezed his shoulder lightly as usual.
“I’ll go first, I’ll come over again when I’m not busy.”
Wang Miao’s lips moved as though he wanted to say something, but Xu Xizhou just waved his hand and got into the car.
Seeing the thin figure in the rearview mirror getting farther and farther away, Xu Xizhou sighed softly.
The Lu’s house was brightly lit tonight, and the huge crystal chandeliers glowed dazzlingly above the spiral staircase. In front of the carved iron gate, well-dressed guests streamed in, and the melodious sound of the violin came from the hall.
Zhuang Jingchun was wearing a dark green corduroy suit today, which made his complexion look like porcelain, giving him the aristocratic temperament. His mixed-race facial features added a sense of mystery to him.
Xu Xizhou was wearing the same suit as him. He was handsome and upright, but compared to Zhuang Jingchun, he felt like children wearing adult clothes.
Seeing Xu Xizhou leaning against the car window and constantly adjusting his tie, Zhuang Jingchun finally couldn’t bear to see it any longer.
Xu Xizhou pouted and leaned his upper body toward Zhuang Jingchun. Zhuang Jingchun impatiently stretched out his hand to untie his tie and retied it for him.
“Did no one tell you how to wear a tie when you attended the team reception?”
“I don’t wear a tie most of the time, and no one tells me off.”
“At that time, you were still the young master of the Lu family, so naturally, no one dared to remind you.”
Xu Xizhou has to admit that Zhuang Jingchun was far more talented than others when it came to poking his sore spot.
The two got out of the car together. As soon as Xu Xizhou’s figure appeared, it caused a lot of discussion among the surrounding guests, and all kinds of shocked glances came over.
“Isn’t that the Lu family’s fake young master? What is he doing here?”
“My God, he is so cheeky. Didn’t he threaten to cut off relations with the Lu family? How could he still have the face to come here?”
“But who is the person next to him? Such a handsome mixed-race, how come I haven’t seen him before?
Xu Xizhou and Zhuang Jingchun walked into the hall without a change of expression amongst the whispering crowd.
Returning to the home he was once very familiar with as a guest, Xu Xizhou’s mood was very complicated.
It’s just that before he had time to sigh, a very surprised voice came from behind him.
“Xiao Zhou, why are you here?”
The person who spoke was Xu Mei. She was wearing a royal blue dress and a white shawl. She looked elegant and had a hint of surprise in her eyes.
Lu Feng was taking Lu Rong to receive guests on the other side. When he heard this voice, he also looked over. When he saw Xu Xizhou, he subconsciously stood in front of Lu Rong.
It’s natural for Lu Feng to misunderstand, after all, everyone standing in the hall thought that Xu Xizhou was here today to smash the venue.
After all, the young master who has been pampered and sheltered has suddenly become an orphan. Anyone’s mentality will be out of balance, their mentality might be distorted and they’d take revenge on society.
Xu Xizhou couldn’t help but want to laugh when he saw Lu Feng’s uneasy expression. He turned his head and whispered to the man.
“Say, what do you think I should say now to be more in line with their expectations of me as a vicious fake young master?”
“I suggest you don’t say anything.”
Zhuang Jingchun straightened his collar, took a step forward, and stretched out his hand to Lu Feng with a smile.
“Hello, Mr. Lu.”
With a mixed-race face and the same green eyes as his father, Lu Feng immediately reacted and said in surprise, “Mr. Zhuang, I didn’t expect you to come back to China, it’s great.”
He immediately pulled Lu Rong’s sleeve and couldn’t wait to say, “Xiao Rong, you should get acquainted with him. This is Mr. Zhuang, the future heir of the Zhuang Group. You are all the same age, so there should be a lot of topics—”
Zhuang Jingchun coughed softly twice, “Excuse me, Mr. Lu, there is another person I haven’t introduced.”
When Zhuang Jingchun’s clear green eyes swept over, Xu Xizhou’s heart tightened, this guy wouldn’t think…
He bit the bullet and walked over. His palms suddenly became hot, Zhuang Jingchun held his hand in front of everyone.
“This is my boyfriend, Xu Xizhou.”
