However, Leng Shaoting only answered lightly and turned around walking into the house.
This wasn’t the first time that Leng Shaoting had ignored Shen Zhilin like that. Shen Zhilin felt sad but didn’t mind, because she was already used to it. In order to ally her embarrassment, Shen Zhilin turned to Leng Shaoxun. “Shaoxun, Happy New Year!”
“Happy New Year to you too,” Leng Shaoxun replied politely. He wasn’t as cold as Leng Shaoting after all.
When it was time for the meal, everyone went back to the front hall. In the hall, Leng Shaojia and Leng Shaoming also came downstairs to join them.
“Happy New Year, Uncle Shen and Aunt Shen!” they said.
“Happy New Year to you!” Shen Yanfeng and Chen Qiuyin replied with pleasure. Shen Yanfeng even complimented, “I haven’t seen you in a long time, and Shaoxun has grown much taller and handsome now! Shaoxi is also prettier!”
Although those were simply courtesies, Leng Shaoxun and Leng Shaoxi still thanked them, “Thank you, Uncle Shen.”
“Oh, where is Shaoting?” Master Leng asked.
“He’s changing in his room,” Leng Shaoxun replied.
Before long, Leng Shaoting came back outside. The moment he appeared, Shen Yanfeng couldn’t move her eyes off him. Even Shen Yanfeng and Chen Qiuyin appreciated Leng Shaoting very much. It would be wonderful if their daughter could marry Leng Shaoting
“Shaoting is a really outstanding young man. He became a major general at such a young age. No matter whose daughter marries him, she will be super lucky!” Shen Yanfeng complimented. However, once he complimented Leng Shaoting like that, it seemed like Leng Shaoming wasn’t good enough to be outstanding. Although Leng Shaoming was quite excellent among his peers, he was hardly comparable to Leng Shaoting. Therefore, Leng Shaoming’s family was displeased, but they couldn’t retort because it was the truth.
“By the way, Shaoting, do you have a girlfriend?” Shen Yanfeng asked Leng Shaoting.
“Yes,” Leng Shaoting answered with alacrity. Leng Shaoting understood what was on the Shen family’s mind, so he decided to not keep it a secret anymore to make them give up on the idea. However, Leng Shaoting’s simple answer caused a sensation among the people around the table. Everyone except for Master Leng rounded their eyes in shock.
“What? Seriously?” Leng Shaoxun couldn’t believe his ears.
“Yes,” Leng Shaoting said. Thinking of Gu Ning, Leng Shaoting looked gentle and his expression was full of love, which amazed the rest of the Leng family because none of them had ever seen him like that.
After the great shock, the Shen family were all disappointed, but they weren’t in despair yet. As long as Leng Shaoting was unmarried, Shen Zhilin still had hope. And since Leng Shaoting had a girlfriend, he wasn’t gay!
Shen Yanfeng pretended to gossip. “Ha-ha, I had no idea that Shaoting already had a girlfriend, who is the girl?”
“Someone I love,” Leng Shaoting said. He didn’t mention his girlfriend’s background at all. In other words, he didn’t care about family background, as long as he loved her.

Hearing that Leng Shaoting’s girlfriend wasn’t from a powerful family, the rest of the people in the Leng family were relieved, because there wouldn’t be another force of support behind Leng Shaoting, but what they didn’t know was that Leng Shaoting’s girlfriend was quite a promising businesswoman, and she would be more powerful and influential than any of the other richest families in the capital in the near future.
Master Leng laughed and echoed, “We never care about family background. As long as Shaoting is happy, I’ll support him!”
The Shen family weren’t dumb and dropped the topic at once.
The dishes were placed on the table soon, so they moved to the dining hall. Shen Zhilin, on the other hand, lost her appetite when she heard that Leng Shaoting already had a girlfriend. After the meal, Leng Shaoting left right away. Shen Zhilin felt sad, but she couldn’t do anything. If she continued flirting with Leng Shaoting after she knew that he had a girlfriend, it would be her fault.
At that time in City F, Wu Lianqin was arrested by the police at his home after the New Year’s Eve. And his dirty secrets were soon exposed, which shocked citizens in City F.
Because of the New Year festival, Wu Lianqin was arrested a day later than was planned. However, once the festival was celebrated, he was immediately arrested. Wu Lianqin was sentenced to at least 10 years in prison.
Since Wu Lianqin was thrown into jail, Gu Ning wouldn’t bother Tianhua Real Estate, because it didn’t belong to Wu Lianqin after all.
Gu Ning also heard other news today. An Yi told them in their WeChat group that the couple who had stolen his family’s money was also caught by the police, but the money had already been spent so it was impossible to get it back. Gu Ning had deep sympathy for An Guangyao. Luckily, An Guangyao’s life was getting better ever since he started working for Gu Ning
In the afternoon, Jiang Zhongyu and Master Xu came to visit Master Leng.
“Where is Shaoting?” Jiang Zhongyu asked. He knew that Leng Shaoting came back for the New Year festival, but he never saw him.
“He’s gone,” Master Leng said.
“What? It’s still the Spring Festival now, and Jinchen is still home!” Master Xu was surprised.
“He’s in a hurry to meet his girlfriend,” Master Leng replied. Although Leng Shaoting didn’t stay to keep him company, Master Leng thought that it was more important for his grandson to get married.
“Ha-ha, it seems that his girlfriend is more important than his grandpa!” Jiang Zhongyu joked.
Master Leng rolled his eyes. “I’m happy to see that he cares about his girlfriend. At least I don’t need to worry about his marriage anymore.”
“Ha-ha, you’re right,” Master Xu and Jiang Zhongyu agreed and laughed.
“Speaking of Shaoting’s girlfriend, she is our family’s life-saver!” Jiang Zhongyu said.
“Life-saver? What do you mean?” Hearing that, both Master Leng and Master Xu were confused, so was everyone else around them.
“You don’t know about it?” Jiang Zhongyu was surprised. He had thought that Master Leng already knew.
“What happened, Grandpa Jiang? Why is Shaoting’s girlfriend your family’s life-saver?” Leng Shaoxun asked with burning curiosity.
