Chapter 1764: Retired After Winning Merit, Honourable Although Defeated (35)
Lu Yan walked outside while the Qiao Family entertained the possible idea of having a traitor in their circle. Suddenly, she had an epiphany.
She dialed out a call, "Dad."

"Um, Qiao Fei is awake."
"How did you know?"
"How am I supposed to survive in this industry without knowing everything? I'd have been caught a hundred times over," Professor Lu said with great pride in his voice.
"Dad, I want to go back and visit Sis."
"I know you won't agree, but I'll be going undercover, and I won't disturb her. I also want to see my nieces."
"Undisturbed or not, you can't go. Don't you remember being chased by assassins as soon as you got off the plane last time?"
"I'll be careful this time."
"No means no, quit giving me trouble."
"Dad, don't hang up yet, I have something else to tell you."
"Then say it."
"Qin Chu＃ you know, my brother-in-law. His leg is wounded, and I think that's the reason he's been reluctant to go find Sis. Can you help him? Perhaps your medical skills can help him recover."
"I know about his injury, but there's nothing I can do. You should know that my medical skills are at best mediocre. I'm only good at the sciences, allowing me to conduct research on explosives and biological weapons, and that's the entire reason why people are onto me. You've also taken on my DNA, which made you into an explosives genius. Your sister, on the other hand, inherited your mother's talent in medicine. Qin Chu's leg wound is a rather complicated issue that is difficult to operate on. There's nothing I can do when he himself, a medical genius, can do nothing. Unless＃" Professor Lu intentionally paused for a moment.
"Unless what?" Lu Yan asked immediately.
"Unless it was your mother, perhaps she would be able to do something."
"But mom＃ she＃" Lu Yan paused.
"I still have unfinished business here, so I'll leave it at that. I'm warning you one more time that, before we finish with Ian, you're forbidden from going near your sister." Professor Lu then hung up.
"What the hell? I can't even go visit my biological sister and nieces? If word gets out, I'm going to be the laughing stock of everyone＃" Lu Yan slumped her shoulders.
"Ian, you psychopath, I'll find a way to blow you to pieces! UGH!" Annoyance tickled Lu Yan's heart, and for the first time, she began to think that Ian was actually a difficult enemy to deal with. They had been going at it for years now, and there had been several times where she almost died at his hands. How much longer will their cat and mouse game last?
- At the same time, at the Su Family Mansion -
Su Yu arrived at the house on time to take Huo Mian to Ni Yang's celebratory party.
He also brought several gowns for Huo Mian to choose from, but little did he know she was already prepared.
As he looked up, his gaze lingered. He rarely got to see Huo Mian dressed up so gracefully 每 She wore a cherry-red-colored long gown with the collar designed asymmetrically slanted, delicately revealing her right shoulder. Her outfit was a perfect combination of conservative and sexy. Paired with a pair of white heels, Huo Mian looked simple and graceful.
With time, Huo Mian's shoulder-length hair became long. She simply braided her hair into a half plate and propped a red daisy behind her left ear, just enough to tie the entire look together.
As Su Yu's gaze swept over Huo Mian's frame, bit by bit, his heart began racing.
Her beauty was never grand nor glorious, but nonetheless, still soul-stirring.
"I've prepared a couple of gowns for you, but I guess it was unnecessary," Su Yu chuckled.
"What do you think? I bought this set a while ago but never had the chance to wear it, so I had people retrieve it for me from South Hill Manor."
Su Yu didn't answer as his gaze on Huo Mian grew misty, and his heart continued to beat rapidly.
"Dr. Huo, you look ravishing tonight," Su Yu said slowly after a brief pause.
