Miracle Pill Maker Bullies the Boss - Chapter 552: Such A Poser!
Chapter 552: Such A Poser!
Huo Tingrui’s phone rang. He pulled it out to see that it was their father calling, so he cautiously stepped to the side in his pink slippers before he answered the call.
Huo Yao suddenly sighed as she looked at her stupid second older brother. She turned to look at Min Yu powerlessly. “Sorry about this.”
Min Yu cleared his throat and said thoughtfully, “Your brother actually means well.”
“It is kind of you to speak on his behalf.” Huo Yao glanced at him.
She raised her head to look around and asked casually. “Where’s your grandfather?”
“I sent him home,” said Min Yu calmly.
Huo Yao nodded in relief.
“Old Mr. Pei called me a couple of days ago and told me about a patient you helped to treat.” Min Yu’s eyes looked cool and seemed to be chatting casually.
Huo Yao turned to lean on the couch armrest with coolness in her eyes. “Well, I didn’t do it for nothing.”
Min Yu raised his brows thinking about the money-grubber she was. A few seconds later, he added. “Old Mr. Pei has organized a lunch especially for you. Flower Haven at 12:00 pm tomorrow. Will you go?”
Huo Yao frowned slightly. Just as she was about to speak, Huo Tingrui came back after finishing the call only to see his little sister sitting so close to Min Yu. He promptly looked angry and walked over.
Huo Tingrui reached his hand out to pull his little sister to the side and stood in front of her warily. “It’s getting late. It’s time for us to go.”
Huo Yao touched her forehead and stopped talking.
Min Yu stood up straight. He did not carry on asking Huo Yao about lunch. Instead, he nodded politely to Huo Tingrui. “Okay.”
The moment Huo Tingrui saw Min Yu acting in a gentlemanly manner, he scoffed in his heart at the poser he was!
“Don’t bother walking us out.” Huo Tingrui raised his hand and turned his head. “Let’s go, Yao.”
He took Huo Yao’s hand and dragged her out of the villa without even giving them a chance to say goodbye.
After they left, Zhuo Yun promptly stopped pretending to sweep the floor. He picked up the mop and walked over. “Your second older brother-in-law is a tough nut to crack.”
Min Yu was thinking about the look on Huo Yao’s face when he mentioned Old Mr. Pei’s lunch invite. He could not help narrowing his eyes when he heard what Zhuo Yun said. “What do you mean by second older brother-in-law?”
Zhuo Yun coughed. “I meant Miss Huo’s second older brother.”
Min Yu glanced at Zhuo Yun calmly without responding. Instead, he said, “Go find out who Old Mr. Pei got her to treat.”
Zhuo Yun was surprised to hear this request. He said nothing when he caught sight of the serious look on his boss’s face and swiftly acknowledged before he went to investigate.
The moment they left the villa door, Huo Tingrui put on the airs of an older brother and started to educate her. “I’m telling you. From now on, you should steer clear of him. I have a bad feeling about him.”
He felt furious thinking about the way Min Yu acted vulnerable as soon as she showed up. Worse, his little sister even wore matching couple’s slippers with him. He was undoubtedly up to no good.
His little sister was only 18!
Huo Yao glanced at him in silence before she walked home.
Huo Tingrui touched his nose. Every time his little sister looked at him that way, he inexplicably got scared. Despite all the things he wanted to say, he did not dare to utter another word.
Instead, his eyes landed on the books in Huo Yao’s arms.
