Trafford's Trading Club - Chapter 20
“I’m going on a spontaneous trip and will be back soon. Don’t worry about me.”
Ren Ziling received such a message while she was busy looking over the manuscripts. She was stunned for a second, then banged the table and stood up angrily, “Damn brat, there you go again! You think you’re all grown up, eh?”
Ren Ziling called him at once.
“Sorry, the number you have dialed is currently unavailable…”
Finally, Ren Ziling could not help but sit down. During her many years in the industry, she had learned how to control her temper well. ‘F*ck’ could be said to be her limit.
As for Luo Qiu, he was busy looking for his seat after being guided by the air stewardess, with You Ye by his side.
You Ye was wearing sun protective clothing, instead of her usual maid outfit, together with a light green cardigan, and white casual jeans with silver flat shoes..
It made her give off a different feeling.
Though he didn’t say that he’d go to You Ye’s room to check, her wardrobe should be fairly full.
As he was accompanied by a female companion, the air-hostess revealed acted more passionately towards them. However, the difference in treatment between the passengers of different seating areas was quite apparent.
The auction was going to be held in another city—outside the province.
It was outside of Luo Qiu’s teleportation range, so he had to go there by vehicle— For a round trip within one day and having enough time to rest, after learning the economic position of the club along with the fastest speed of Zhong Luochen’s return, Luo Qiu chose to directly travel by air.
The preparation was assigned to You Ye, because she should have done a lot of similar stuff for social activities in the past.
Anyway, Luo Qiu didn’t worry about anything before he sat on the seat of the first-class cabin.
Someone was calling Luo Qiu just as he was about to close his eyes and have a good rest.
It was his acquaintance—Zhang Qingrui, the manager of Gu Yue Zhai.
Zhang Qingrui was alone, holding her handbag, cellphone, and the boarding pass. She looked at him, frowned, and asked, “Are you going to the auction?”
He wasn’t surprised at her question. Because they just met at Gu Yue Zhai yesterday, so she would obviously connect the two events.
Luo Qiu nodded.
Zhang Qingrui maintained her polite attitude. “Is this… your partner?”
“You Ye…” Luo Qiu nodded and introduced her. Then added, “She will be with me for a long time.”
“She’s so beautiful.” Zhang Qingrui smiled slightly.
Females tended to compare themselves with others of the same gender, no matter if it was a strong thought or not, intentional or spontaneous. Nevertheless, she was shocked and jealous of the lady that had all the advantages of both eastern and western females.
Like roses on a high mountain, this special feeling had Zhang Qingrui throw more attention to her. However, after hearing Luo Qiu’s eccentric reply, Zhang Qingrui laughed, “Then I won’t bother you two. Anyway, what about following me to the auction site? It’ll save you a lot of trouble, because I’m with the sponsor.”
She didn’t even consider if Luo Qiu was going to buy something—after all, there were always more spectators than buyers in an auction. Most went there just to join in the fun. Moreover, due to the classmate relations, Zhang Qingrui did not hope to give him an arrogant impression.
Luo Qiu thought for a second, “Alright.”
Zhang Qingrui went back to her seat.
You Ye whispered to Luo Qiu near his ear, “Master, this lady’s soul is so beautiful.”
Luo Qiu gave a start, but said nothing—You Ye was hinting that he should make her a member of the club.
However, Luo Qiu didn’t have any plans to do so. He didn’t want a person, who knew both Ren Ziling and him, to join the club, as that would put him in a difficult position if he were to ever meet Zhang Qingrui with his identity as the boss.
“We can talk about it later.”
Luo Qiu then closed his eyes.
Their intimate behaviour was captured by the air stewardess—in the meantime, she was amazed by the dreamy beautiful girl, both of them had their own thoughts.
She was jealous of You Ye’s beauty. Zhang Qingrui, on the other hand, felt odd that someone would have a crush on Luo Qiu, who was always cold to others.
He must be her true love. And some women with fantasies of love affairs blessed them in heart.
They had no conversation during the flight. After the airplane landed, Luo Qiu and You Ye followed Zhang Qingrui to the auction site.
The car at the opposite side had stopped, followed by the other car left from this side just now.
They went to different places at the same time.
At the same time, in the Zhong’s family villa in the capital city.
“Cheng Yun, get ready and wait for me here.” Zhong Luochen ordered him, then hurried into the villa.
Cheng Yun didn’t dare disobey him, taking out his cellphone and dispatching employees, while monitoring the villa—which he still wasn’t eligible to enter.
Zhong Luochen came back to check on his grandfather who was in critical condition.
Cheng Yun’s destiny was closely tied to the next leader of the Zhong family. Although his descendants were all charismatic, the seriously ill old leader hadn’t made a will to designate which one of them will be the successor. So Cheng Yun was afraid of the potential war that would break out after the current leader left.
He was just confused why Zhong Luochen had commanded him to reserve all seats in the first-class cabins for a round trip.
Just then, another car rushed into the villa. Cheng Yun knew another child of the Zhong family came back.
By this time, all of Zhong Luochen’s rivals and the rest of the important family members had gathered together.
“Is the sky going to change?”
(Note | Is the sky going to change: Changes due to the change in leading powerful figures.)
Cheng Yun raised his head and looked at the sky, before swearing, “F*ck, this damn haze!”
