“Steward Han, when did you start enjoying teasing me, ah?” Qilu teases him back with a playful tone. Hearing that, the old housekeeper’s heart quivers. [The elderly can’t afford to get hurt… .]
The housekeeper takes a deep breath, and calms down his poor, old heart. He looks at Han Qilu’s eyes. Ah, despite young master’s cold demeanor, he knows the young man hopes his soulmate is here at the airport. Maybe he will immediately give up the important meeting in the United States. But would giving up the meeting be okay? Whatever. Having a harmonious marriage between the young couple is what’s important.~[=.=]
“Young master, didn’t you wish for the young mistress to see you at the airport?” Steward Han asks humbly as their eyes meet.
All of a sudden, the steward feels a spring (youthful) feeling in the wind.=.=
“Steward Han, if you want to retire in old age, naturally, I won’t stop you.” He lets out a noise between a snort and a hum. The housekeeper immediately closes his mouth. A drop of sweat forms on his forehead. If someone else watches the young master grow up, wouldn’t one be scared to paralysis, right?
“Young master, the aircraft is ready for boarding.” The bodyguard approaches Han Qilu and immediately lowers his gaze before whispering. “Young master, you see… .”
Han Qilu peers at the private jet before unconsciously scanning the airport. The women caught staring would squeal and pretend to be shy.
But Han Qilu doesn’t give them the time of the day. His glance barely registers them in his eyesight. He can’t seem to find the person he’s looking for… .
There’s a smile in the housekeeper’s eyes, silently thinking that if the young master boards the plane and finds out that the young mistress he’s looking for is in the wrong airport, the young master might not find the urge to kill himself, but he’ll jump out of a plane to find her… .
Wrong! After he jumps, wouldn’t he be broken to pieces? There won’t be any poems to recite about: smashed to pieces, mixed in the mud, and not be beautiful upon leaving the world… .
The housekeeper shudders at the morbid thought. He looks at Han Qilu, who seems to look unperturbed. He already looks bored as he boards the plane with people following him. One of them is carrying his luggage.
Steward Han panics. He quickly says, “Master! Wait!”
Just when they are about to step into the cabin, they hear an excitable steward Han. It’s like he’s trying to say something, but he stands there in place, frozen. Han Qilu turns around. His eyes are without emotion. “What’s wrong?”
Han Qilu stands on the gangway, looking back at the housekeeper. The butler can’t read the young master’s face. However, he feels the man is at a point of his life where his volatile temperament soon cannot be ignored.
Frowning, steward Han stops himself before saying, “Do you remember the chauffeur who’s supposed to drive the young mistress to Stein College? Chen?”
