His sister said with a blush, “Look for me the next time you’re free, alright? I’ll bring you around . We’ve still got many places to visit!”
“I think we can forget that . Look at how jealous brother-in-law was; I’m afraid we won’t have a chance to enjoy our time together like this again . ”
“Don’t bother about him!” She was flustered .
After keeping quiet for a while, Gong Jie slowly revealed his thoughts . “He’s clearly a royalty—born with a silver spoon in his mouth—and must have enjoyed plenty of attention . ”
He had observed the man closely at dinner . His sister’s husband was a blue blood, for even the way he ate revealed his peerage .
The Gongs and the Mus were different .
His family owned a conglomerate, which was in control of a vast territory; it was a world-class entity .
As for his brother-in-law’s family, it had stood tall and proud for many decades . Their resounding reputation had gone for half a century and could not be matched by any other!
Even a dynasty would change every hundred years or so . Thus, it was still a feat for a family to persist beyond a century .
He could imagine the man being a proud aristocrat, who always got what he wanted . He was concerned that his sister would be bullied .
Still, he had no say in the affairs of her heart .
The young man broke into a smile, hooked his arms around her nape, and kissed her lightly on the glabella . “Sis, give me a call right away if brother-in-law ever bullies you . ”
His sister was stunned for a moment before chuckling . “Alright . Don’t you worry about me . ”
“How can I feel at ease when it comes to my one and only sister?!”
She gave him a look of resignation . The woman had mixed emotions about her brother’s protectiveness, though she was happy to hear him express his concern, too . In the end, she just urged, “It’s getting late; you’d better hurry home . Remember to take an early rest!”
“Alright, sis . Goodnight . ”
He got in his car and drove off .
The woman stood and watched the departing car before she turned to walk back in the house .
The Mercedes-Benz left Xiangti Walk and sped on the main road for some time before it came to a halt at a desolate spot .
Gong Jie alighted from the car, taking out his cigarette box for a puff . After he lit it up, wisps of smoke slowly rose in the air . The light flickered in the dark .
Before long, a jeep appeared close behind and stopped at the side as well . After the engine died down, there was no movement from it for a long time .
Holding the cigarette between his lips, he slowly walked over to the jeep with hands in his pockets . Once he reached the vehicle, he lifted his slender foot to hit the side of it viciously . It was a strong kick and made a dent to the door .
“Get off now!” he ordered coldly . The door opened and out came a few well-trained bodyguards who lined themselves in a row .
He sized them up expressionlessly before questioning frigidly, “Who sent you?”
There was no sound from them .
His eyes glinted dangerously . He then continued with a loud snort . “You guys have been following me since morning, haven’t you?”
“Second master, we are under the grand master’s order to follow you for your safety . That’s his command! We are here to protect you!”
The man merely sniggered in response .
