She pondered whether to go back or knock out these men altogether.
Lu Jingye seemed to detect her dilemma and said to the man beside him, “Go on. I will go over in a minute.”
“Young Master Lu.” The man wanted to speak, but Lu Jingye glanced at him and he stopped.
The man nodded and left.
Lu Jingye walked up to the corner of the wall and asked her, “You must be here for He Fei’s matchmaking banquet, right?”
Even though it was a question, he sounded certain.
After all, He Fei’s father had called him to bring He Fei back.
He did not know about the banquet when he sent He Fei back, but he learned of Madam He’s intentions after he chatted with He Fei’s father.
Zi Yi looked at the man beneath her and frowned. “So what if I am?”
“Since you are a guest, what are you doing here?”
The two of them looked at each other for some time before Zi Yi said, “You can either pretend you didn’t see me or go and tell on me.”
If he chose to tell on her, she would knock him out.
Lu Jingye looked at the young woman standing on the wall who was clearly threatening him. An imperceptible smile appeared on his face.
Despite her young age, she was involved in things like playing truant, car racing, and climbing walls.
He was contemplating whether he ought to act nosey one more time.
A commotion suddenly came from behind Zi Yi. Yang Shiya had clearly brought men over to look for Zi Yi.
Zi Yi jumped without hesitation.
Lu Jingye saw the young woman suddenly jump and instinctively went to catch her.
The scent of an unknown man wafted over Zi Yi and left her in a daze.
She raised her head to see the gorgeous man looking at her with his head lowered. Just as she was about to speak, she could hear voices coming from behind the wall.
“I clearly saw Miss Zi enter the inner quarters.”
A voice was clearly chiming in, “Miss Zi is way too eager. Even though nothing has been set in stone yet, she went into the inner quarters. I wonder what she is trying to do.”
“Madam, please watch your words!” It was Zi Xu trying to sound patient.
The lady replied in a sharp tone, “Mr Zi, are you saying Miss Yang is lying?”
Madam He’s displeased voice rang out over theirs. “Enough. We just need to check if she is here or not.”
He Fei’s angry voice was heard as well. “What do you mean by this? Why would she trespass into the inner quarters?”
Lu Jingye put Zi Yi down.
He looked at her and asked, “Why were you in their inner quarters?”
Zi Yi raised her eyes to look at him and did not answer him directly. Instead, she asked rhetorically, “Would you believe it if I said that someone tricked me?”
Lu Jingye looked at her lovely eyes and asked, “What do you want to do now?”
Zi Yi smiled. “You ought to know where the main entrance is, right?”
Both of them spoke cryptically without directly answering each other.
