The sky gradually darkened, and the street lamps in the courtyard in front of them also lit up. The wall lamps in the corridor were a little dim, and the air was faintly filled with a layer of moisture.
In the Grand Lake Villa area, when Dongfang Liuyun walked through the hazy rain into the living room, the lights in the quiet living room were not turned on, and it was quite dark.
Was he not here?
Dongfang Liuyun frowned in confusion. She quickly reached out to turn on the lights on the side, and the house immediately lit up.
Dongfang Liuyun took the opportunity to look around the house. She only found that the house was very quiet. It seemed that no one was home?
After some thought, Dongfang Liuyun closed the door and walked to the stairs to call his name a few times. She waited for a long time, but she did not hear any response from above.
He must have gone out?
Dongfang Liuyun did not think too much. She took off her coat and walked to the kitchen.
An hour later, the meal was ready. The house was colder than before. Dongfang Liuyun prepared the food on the table, but Qi Lei was still nowhere to be seen. She went upstairs to look for him, but she could not find him, when she called his phone, she saw that it was on the desk in the study.
Dongfang Liuyun had no choice but to find a book from the bookshelf. She sat in front of the desk and flipped through it while waiting.
After an unknown period of time, the night was getting darker. Many of the lights in the villa area had fallen silent, and the world was getting quieter. Dongfang Liuyun eventually fell asleep on the table tiredly as she read.
When Qi Lei walked into the study, he saw her sleeping on the table.
He stood by the table and watched her for a long time. There was a hint of gentleness in his eyes. He thought about it and decided to carry her back to the bedroom. However, Dongfang Liuyun was a light sleeper. Qi Lei’s fingertips had just touched her shoulder when she was woken up.
She opened her blurry eyes and looked at Qi Lei for a moment before letting out a sigh of relief—
“Where did you go? You didn’t even take your phone!”
There was a hint of reproach and dissatisfaction in her tone.
“Let’s go out for a walk. The food on the dining table… haven’t you had your dinner yet?”
Qi Lei retracted his hands. He put one hand in his pocket leisurely while the other held the corner of the table and looked down at her sitting in the chair.
“I was waiting for you. What’s wrong? Something on your mind?”
Dongfang Liuyun quickly noticed the sadness in his eyes. She could also feel the solemnity gathering on his body.
“It’s nothing. On Mu Yuchen’s side, Elder Mu is gone. He’s just feeling a little heavy right now. Go down and heat up the dishes. Have a drink with me?”
As Qi Lei said this, he suddenly turned around and walked towards the door.
Dongfang Liuyun was stunned for a moment. Then, she closed the books in front of her and put them back on the bookshelf before following him out.
The husband and wife simply heated up the dishes before sitting down.
“When I went to see him a while ago, I knew that he wouldn’t be able to hold on for long. I didn’t expect this day to come so quickly. I was a little caught off guard.”
Dongfang Liuyun poured some wine and took a sip. Then, she frowned.
“The world is unpredictable. Elder Mu is a very good person. To suddenly leave like this, I can’t help but sigh. I’m sure Mu Yuchen isn’t feeling great either.” Qi Lei replied, then he took a sip of wine. “I hope that we can learn to cherish it more because of this.”
Qi Lei had already witnessed several deaths. Although he felt a little uncomfortable hearing such news, he could still maintain a bit of calmness in his heart. He had just received a call from Su Chen, so Su Chen was naturally very upset, Qi Lei could still hear a hint of lament in his voice, as if he was choking up.
Qi Lei consoled him for a while before he calmed down a little.
“So, you’re in a bad state too. It must be because of this, right?”
Dongfang Liuyun poured him some wine as she asked.
“I’m just a little disappointed.”
“Are you thinking of your mother?”
Dongfang Liuyun was such a sharp person. She immediately guessed what Qi Lei was thinking. When she asked that, Qi Lei immediately raised his gaze and looked at her silently.
However, Dongfang Liuyun did not look at him. She continued to lower his gaze and placed a few dishes in his bowl. Her tone was indifferent. “Your thoughts are written in your eyes. Moreover, you only act like this when you think about those things.”
“Missus Qi, you do have a pair of sharp eyes. I can’t hide my thoughts from you now?”
Qi Lei smiled and raised his glass to toast her. However, there was a hint of loneliness in his smile. As he looked at her, he felt an indescribable sense of loneliness.
“However, you shouldn’t be such a person. We should be the warriors who are charging forward. Other than reminiscing and drawing lessons from the past, there’s actually no use for it. Like me, I’ve never wanted to reminisce.”
Dongfang Liuyun said softly.
“Just now, Grandmother called me over and asked me about the company. I handed Dongfang Yu and his lover’s affairs over to Grandmother. I said, if Grandmother doesn’t want the Dongfang family to have a sex scandal, then I believe she should know what to do.”
When Dongfang Liuyun said this, Qi Lei was stunned and looked at Dongfang Liuyun in surprise!
Unexpectedly, this woman usually did not make a move, but on first move she would be so bold!
She caught on to Dongfang Yu’s Achilles’ heel. As long as those things were left in Dongfang Liuyun’s hands, Dongfang Yu did not seem like he could be the person in charge of the Dongfang Group, this was because the Dongfang Group could not accept such a person whose reputation had been destroyed becoming the person in charge of the Dongfang Group.
“You don’t have to look at me like that. In fact, the one who really got these things was Dongfang Ren’s people. I only snatched these things from her hands one step ahead. Dongfang Yi and Dongfang Yu even have to thank me. If I hadn’t given those things to Grandmother, once those photos were spread, the matter would have been irreparable. I want them to be respectful to me and behave themselves.”
As Dongfang Liuyun spoke, a smile appeared on her face. She casually drank up the wine in her glass. Her eyes were filled with a wise and cold light. Qi Lei saw it, suddenly, he felt as if he was embraced by the beautiful starlight.
“I admire your wisdom and intelligence, Missus. If you were in ancient times, you would definitely be a top-notch general. You have courage and wisdom, but it’s a pity that you were born in modern times.”
Qi Lei smiled faintly.
“If President Qi were to hire me with a high salary, I might as well give it a try and become your strategist.”
Dongfang Liuyun replied with a smile.
