“Come to my place tomorrow,” Helian Qingyu said. “I’ll prepare a feast for both of you.”
“Thank you. I’ll contact you later,” Huo Yunshen said and was about to leave.
He was really grateful to both Helian Wei and Helian Qinyu. There was no way he could have gotten Xu Xiyan back without their help, and a huge thanks was needed.
“General, do you still remember our promise?” Lan Ling’er stopped Helian Qingyu who was about to leave.
Helian Qingyu did remember that he had promised to bring her to his parents if the rescue was successful.
It was all an act to get Lan Ling’er to help them. In truth, Helian Qingyu had no feelings towards her.
But they still needed to go back to Lstan to rescue Jing Ruyue, and they needed Lan Ling’er’s help for that.
“Of course!” Helian Qingyu said. “Have a little patience, I’ll talk to my parents, and we’ll choose a suitable date.”
“Why not tomorrow? You’re having a party there, right? Let me join you.”
Lan Ling’er was eager to meet Helian Qingyu’s parents and confirm their relationship.
“Tomorrow is fine, I guess…”
As long as Alice remained in Lstan as Xu Xiyan, Helian Qingyu knew that he had to act as if he liked Lan Ling’er.
“But I hope you can keep everything that happened today a secret,” Helian Qingyu reminded. “We don’t need another person in the loop.”
Only a handful of them knew of the event that had happened that day, and most would definitely keep their mouths shut, except for Lan Ling’er.
“Don’t you worry about that,” Lan Ling’er assured him. “I will be dead too if my brother finds out.”
“Good. I’ll send someone to pick you up tomorrow.”
After he sent Lan Ling’er back, she instantly announced to the media that she was in a relationship with Helian Qingyu.
Li Ruochu was sitting in the mansion, staring at the news as a bitter smile appeared on her face.
[The General’s Secret Girlfriend!] was the headline of the day.
So, it was Lan Ling’er… The nation’s goddess… Li Ruochu smiled wryly in her head. Then, what am I? A mistress?
Tears fogged up her eyes as she told herself that she should never have held any hopes to begin with.
She thought that if she was just expendable to him, then she should be the one leaving.
After she made her decision, she wiped her tears away and began to pack her stuff.
As soon as Huo Yunshen entered the Yunjing Manor, he picked Xu Xiyan up and put her softly on the couch.
Xu Xiyan took off her mask, and they stared at each other before they began to hug and kiss.
They had no idea whose tears began to fall first, but when they tasted the salty tears, the bitterness spread throughout their bodies.
If Huo Yunshen had been any later to arrive and save Xu Xiyan, they would’ve been separated forever.
