Chapter 563: Was There Some Mistake In The Investigation?

He Xiaoman’s face was cut by the corners of the pages of the proposal. Despite the pain, she did not dare to make a peep and swallowed her pain.

The private room door was open and the service staff was standing at the door, ready to send the food in when they witnessed the scene. They promptly halted in their steps and were hesitant about entering.

Things looked extremely awkward.

He Xiaoman was a proud woman. The moment the wait staff saw what happened, it felt as though she was caught naked.

She might have to tolerate her husband’s temper, but she certainly did not have to do the same towards outsiders. “Who said you could come in? Don’t you know how to knock before entering?”

She had forgotten about pressing the service bell a few minutes ago and asking for food to be sent in.

The wait staff was well-trained, and had seen a fair share of patrons like her. They calmly walked out of the room without saying a word.

After Lin Shuwen left Lu Hongwen’s private room, he headed to the bathroom before going back to Old Mr. Pei’s private room.

He barely spent ten minutes with Lu Hongwen, so no one took notice when he went back to the private room.

However, he had a strange look on his face. After he sat down next to Fang Chen, Fang Chen looked at him sideways and asked him softly. “What happened?”

Lin Shuwen was still thinking about the disgusting encounter he had with Huo Yao’s foster parents. Despite his effort to compose himself, he could not stay quiet, so he replied to Fang Chen. “I have just seen Miss Huo’s foster parents.”

He had deliberately kept his voice down so that the conversation was only audible to Fang Chen.

Fang Chen looked surprised. He did not know about the meeting. “Did something happen?”

Lin Shuwen sighed deeply and said, “I don’t know what to say! Miss Huo certainly doesn’t resemble her foster parents.”

Judging by her poise, she did not seem like she was brought up by the Lu family.

Was there some mistake in the investigation?

Lin Shuwen furtively raised his head to glance at Huo Yao sitting across from him as he contemplated over the matter. He recalled her warning and promptly suppressed his urge to enquire.

Fang Chen glanced at Lin Shuwen. It must be really bad if even his secretary was reacting this way.

Fang Chen cleared his throat and did not probe. Instead, he said calmly, “Fine. Have your lunch. We can talk later.”

Lin Shuwen acknowledged him before he veered his eyes.

Huo Yao raised her eyes and glanced in Lin Shuwen’s direction before she quickly looked away and continued to eat.

The service staff came in with some exquisitely arranged fruit platters when they were almost done eating. These happened to be rare high-end fruit.

After removing the empty dishes on the lazy susan, two waiters placed the fruit on the table. They casually rotated the fruit in front of Huo Yao before they left.

Before they left, they even glanced at Huo Yao.

Huo Yao raised her head to look at them when she detected their looks, but she merely caught a glance of them turning to leave.

From the moment they started serving the food, it felt like déjà vu, but she was unable to recall when she had encountered a similar situation previously.

Min Yu noticed her wrapped in thought as he gave her some fruit. So, he asked her casually. “What’s on your mind?”

Huo Yao snapped out of her thoughts and shook her head. “Nothing.”

Min Yu did not go on probing and went on to pour himself a cup of tea.

Fang Chen stood up and walked over in Min Yu’s direction.

Min Yu glanced at him with his cool eyes as he considered whether to make conversation with Fang Chen or not.
