C229 The Doubt of the Emperor(2)
"Yes, Your Majesty. He arrived yesterday and is currently living in Prince Xu's residence! "
Upon hearing this, Emperor Wenjing frowned. His eyes were flickering, making it hard for one to understand his emotions. After a long time, he said in a low voice, "Forget it, what should come will always come. Since he chose this path, it should be his turn to continue."
Up until now, no one could say for sure what had happened back then. There are people who are known for their fame, people who are interested, and some who are loyal. This kind of complicated intersection had already changed the trajectory of everyone's fate. Now, it was time to end it. Moreover, he knew very well that his son looked elegant and peerless. He was not tainted by dust, but in fact, he was carrying his own destiny. He had already painstakingly planned for so many years, and would never give up.
On the other side, Lan Xuehan brought Lan Muhua and the others back to the manor. After asking Uncle Lau, she said that Dongfang Jin had not returned yet. Lan Xuehan looked at the sky and realized that Dongfang Jin had been busy recently.
After she followed Lan Muhua back to their courtyard, she looked at her parents with a hesitant expression. Lan Muhua's eyes were deep. He could see her hesitation at first glance, and there was a trace of understanding in his eyes.
He asked with a smile, "What is it? Do you have something to ask me?"
Lan Xuehan had a smile that was exposed and said with a smile, "My father is wise. My daughter indeed has something to ask!"
"You still want to play this kind of riddles with your parents?" Lan Muhua could not help but laugh as he shook his head. "Tell me, what is it?"
Speaking of proper business, Lan Xuehan's expression turned serious. "Dad, actually I just want to know what kind of relationship you have with the Heavenly Lan family?"
When these words came out, Lau Mianyue, who was smiling and looking at the two of them, changed her expression. Her beautiful face had a pale expression, and her eyes contained some fear towards the past.
Lan Muhua saw his beloved wife like this and immediately pulled her into his arms. He patted her back and said softly, "Yue Er, it's nothing. Don't think about that anymore. Don't worry, I'm by your side. I've always been there."
Lan Xuehan did not expect this kind of result. Seeing her mother's appearance, waves of guilt surfaced in her heart. However, it seemed like her parents really had something to do with the Lan family. Furthermore, their relationship was not shallow.
With light steps, she pulled Lau Mianyue's soft and boneless hand. With a guilty expression, she said, "I'm sorry, mother. Don't even think about it. I didn't know that these words would give you such a big reaction. If you don't like it... I won't ask anymore."
Lau Mianyue felt the comfort and warmth from her husband and daughter and eased her expression. Looking at her precious daughter's guilt, she softly said, "It's fine. Han, don't worry. It was mother who reacted a little too much. Some things had been sealed for a long time. Suddenly she remembered that it still carried some of the resentment and fear from back then."
Lan Muhua looked at Lan Xuehan's questioning eyes and his expression turned serious. He promised Jin that he would not tell her about these things first. After all, they were about to become husband and wife. This kind of thing was something that the two of them had to face together. He told Jin everything, and at that time, she would discuss it with him. That would be the best.
"Han, you are going to get married soon. I will tell you about this after your wedding. You saw it too. Your mother was sad when she mentioned the past. So, I'll tell you after a while. Is that alright?"
This matter was related to the family that she loved the most, so why wouldn't Lan Xuehan agree? Heaven and earth are big, her parents are the biggest.
"Okay, dad, I am just asking about this. If you really don't want to talk about it, your daughter won't force it. In my heart, as long as you and Mom can be happy, that's good enough!"
Looking at the sensible Lan Xuehan in front of him, Lan Muhua's eyes carried a sense of relief. He nodded, "Your filial piety, father and mother know. Don't worry, there are some things that you should know. Father and Mother will definitely not hide from you. It's just that I don't want to affect your mood for your wedding right now. You also don't want Jin to look forward to his married bride. It's a bride with a worried face, right? "The rest of the words seem to be trying to mediate the atmosphere.
Lan Xuehan's mind was clear. She looked at her mother and immediately replied, "Okay, Dad, I understand. I only said this because I remembered it today. Since that's the case, then don't take it to heart with Mother!"
The words were said to Lan Muhua, but his eyes were looking at Lau Mianyue. How could the intelligent her not know her daughter's thoughts? She forced herself to suppress her negative emotions. She smiled and said, "Alright, don't worry about me. Your father and I won't be accompanying you for dinner tonight. You can go back first. Your father will accompany me here. Don't feel guilty. This is my own problem. It has nothing to do with you!"
Lan Xuehan looked at Lan Muhua. Seeing him nod his head, she could only say, "Alright then. Mother, I will go back first!"
After saying that, she went out. She left Lau Mianyue and Lan Muhua behind and saw her walk out of the door. Lau Mianyue's hidden emotions finally completely erupted. She hurriedly turned around and held Lan Muhua's hand, raising her tearful eyes to look at him.
Her gentle voice carried traces of fear in her memories. "Muhua, Han still asked us. Could it be that all of this is going to be revealed again? I don't ask for anything else. I hope that our family can be happy and happy. But why is the heavens so cruel, not even willing to satisfy this small request of mine? "
