Xia Ning stared at the tall man in front. His face was tense, just like his mood right now. She curled her lips. “It seems like you’ve heard.”
“Are you really Xiao Ke?” Lin Nan’s voice was somewhat shaking. He himself did not realize his awkwardness.
Xia Ning looked down and smiled slightly. “Right, I am.” She looked up at Lin Nan. “Uncle Lin, I’m Xiao Ke. Long time no see.”
She felt a sudden force on her shoulder and an overly excited voice followed. “Xiao Ke, where did you go back then? Why didn’t you come look for me?”
Xia Ning looked at Lin Nan and said bitterly, “Uncle Lin, sorry. So many things happened back then and I didn’t have the chance to say goodbye.”
“I went to the orphanage to look for you but they told me you had been adopted.” Lin Nan looked at Xia Ning. “I recently heard that your real name is Su Ke Xia Ning but it didn’t catch my attention. Now that I think about it, I don’t even know your last name. I’ve only heard your mother calling you Xiao Ke.” He let go of Xia Ning and was still immersed in a surreal feeling.
After 17 years, when he thought he’d never seen her again, she was right here by his side.
Xia Ning smiled. “I’ve always appreciated you taking care of my mum and me back then, Uncle Lin. My mum also told me before she passed away that I should repay you.”
“You knew who I am so why didn’t you tell me?” Lin Nan looked at Xia Ning in blame. “I’ve been trying to find you all this time.”
Xia Ning put on a bitter smile. “I didn’t know if you’d still remember me, Uncle Lin. I thought it would be better for us to just stay as friends.”
“Silly girl!” Lin Nan breathed slightly. “Good thing you are back. Don’t disappear like this anymore.”
Xia Ning nodded. “I know. I’d appreciate your guidance from now on, Uncle Lin.”
Lin Nan heard this and frowned slightly. “You called me Brother Lin before and now you are calling me Uncle Lin. Sounds like I’m at a disadvantage.”
Xia Ning chuckled, “I’d better still call you Brother Lin. As a matter of fact, you look very young, Uncle Lin.”
Lin Nan moved his eyebrows a little. He did not know she was Xiao Ke before, so he had romantic feelings for her. Now that he knew who she was, he suddenly had the feeling that he was being dirty before, longing for his little niece who was 12 years younger.
God knows, he had the same seniority as her mother.
“I’m so happy today. Let’s go. I’ll buy you food,” Lin Nan said excitedly. “Where do you want to eat? Your call.”
Xia Ning raised her eyebrows. “Fine. I won’t hold back.”
The two drove away directly.
In AS hotel, because the main people were all gone, the catering was canceled as well. Qiao Yu was ready to go back to his company.
Chen Hong was reporting his schedule on the side.
“Boss, you have a 2 pm meeting with President Xu at Haoyuan. A 3 pm reporting meeting with the management. A 4 pm meeting with Germany…”
“Brother Qiao, Brother Qiao…” A high-pitched female voice sounded. Two women came up and blocked Qiao Yu.
Qiao Yu stared at the two with a cold face.
“Brother Qiao, help Xinyi. Only you can help her, otherwise, the Jiang Group is going down,” Shen Weiwei said, completely forgetting that Qiao Yu did not really pay attention to her before.
Jiang Xinyi pressed her lips together and looked at Qiao Yu sadly. “Brother Qiao…” she said in a low voice.
Qiao Yu looked at the two and said without much emotion, “Go away.”
