Chapter 2263: I Didn’t Expect You to be a Mistress (4)
The sisters had deep feelings for each other.
Ever since Huo Mian learned about Lu Yan, she deeply cared about and missed her.
She even wished that Lu Yan could live an ordinary life where they could be like normal sisters and do things like shopping and going out to eat together.
"Sis, as long as I'm still alive, I will protect you. I am strong and I will use all of my power to protect those I love, and that's you and Dad. The twins too… I won't let anyone hurt you guys…" Lu Yan said to herself.
"Yan, have you ever thought about retiring from your current job? You can't be a mercenary forever…" Huo Mian asked softly.
Lu Yan blinked, thought for a bit, and then said, "Sis, I don't like this world but I am in it already. There are things I cannot control and many of the things I can't control are things I don't enjoy. The outcomes of things are always out of my expectations… I'm tired. I have money, great subordinates, and some great friends… Also, that Psycho Qiao is completely into me… As long as Ian's not dead though, I will not be able to get out of this world. He has chased after me and Dad for so many years now and he's still unwilling to give up… Maybe all of this won't end unless Dad and I are dead…"
"It's Chinese New Year now. Don't say such unlucky things…" Huo Mian stopped Lu Yan.
"You just don't need to worry. Ian's death will end all of this too. When we do that, let's go find Mom. Then, our family will be reunited and we can be with each other forever. Sis, let me tell you this: I have saved up a lot of dollars, gold, and antiques. This fortune will last me for many lifetimes. I also have a private island in the South Pacific ocean. It's spring there all year round. It's actually my headquarters. I'll take you there in the future and we can live a peaceful life."
"Okay…" Huo Mian nodded.
Lu Yan described her dream and paradise to Huo Mian but Huo Mian knew that reality was much crueler and rougher.
One Ian could crush all of her dreams and everything she had…
Huo Mian did not know much about Ian, the Nalo Brothers, the other terrorists groups, or Huo Siqian's relationships with these people.
However, one day, she knew she would have to face them rather than let Yan and her father face them while she hid behind them in the safety they fought so hard to get her.
It was midnight and the hotel had started to serve the dumplings.
According to northern customs, they would put a coin in a dumpling.
In every family, they would see who was the luckiest person to get this dumpling with the coin.
It was something that both adults and children would look forward to.
It had been many years since Qiao Fei and Lu Yan had experienced such customs and ate such traditional dumplings.
Little Bean ate four consecutively and was now full. However, since she had not eaten the one that had the coin, she continued to eat.
Pudding was in a good mood so she just ate three and stopped eating. She then sent a WeChat message to Su Yu to wish him a happy Chinese New Year.
Just then, Huo Mian suddenly felt that she bite into something…
She frowned, spat out the gold coin, and put it on the table.
"Ugh… Mommy got it again…" Little Bean pouted, very unconvinced.
"What do you mean again? Does your mommy get it every year?" Lu Yan lightly pinched Little Bean's face and asked with a smile.
