The Atypical Young Lady Has Returned - Chapter 377
After coming out of Feng Xiangxiang’s courtyard, Yan Jinyu and Xi Fengling went out as usual.
Feng Qin followed them.
Feng Qin drove.
In the car, Feng Qin asked, “Where are we going?” Now that she had almost calmed down, she still felt a little unreal when she saw Xi Fengling sitting in the front passenger seat.
“Beauty Yu and I aren’t familiar with Cloud City. Since you’re the guide, the rest of the journey will be decided by you. We don’t have any special requests. We just have to eat and play.”
Feng Qin looked at her and then at Yan Jinyu, who was sitting in the back seat.
If they were really just going to eat and play, she naturally knew where to go. After all, she had done her homework after agreeing to be their guide.
She was just worried that they had something else to do.
After leaving her mother’s courtyard, she saw that her sister seemed to have called someone before she drove out. She thought that they had some other plan.
In reality, Xi Fengling had only called Min Rufeng to tell him about the progress of acknowledging her family.
“Alright, let’s go to a nearby scenic spot first. We’ll find a place to eat at noon and then go shopping at the snack street in the afternoon. There’s a very famous snack street in Cloud City. In the next few days, our arrangements will be to shop at a scenic spot every day. In the afternoon, we’ll either shop or find a place to sit down and eat. This way, the schedule isn’t tight and it’ll be easy to play. What do you think?”
“Sounds good. Let’s do as you plan,” Xi Fengling said.
Xi Fengling was the same as Yan Jinyu. She wasn’t particular about these things. Since she was out, it was fine as long as she had food and fun.
However, she wasn’t as carefree as Yan Jinyu.
Yan Jinyu didn’t say anything along the way. She acted as if she could do whatever they wanted. She sat quietly in the back seat and played with her phone.
Yan Jinyu was indeed playing with her phone.
She wasn’t playing games or watching television. Instead, she was texting Yin Jiujin.
They did not talk about anything major. They were just talking about some small matters.
For example, she asked Yin Jiujin if he was busy today and if he had eaten breakfast on time before going to the company. She even said something about what happened in the Feng Family.
Of course, there might be something wrong with the Feng Family. She didn’t mention that she and Xi Fengling had already gone to investigate last night.
Since Yin Jiujin didn’t want her to know that he had followed her, she would pretend not to know.
It felt good to have someone silently protecting her while she rushed forward.
On this day, other than Feng Qin being recognized and taken a few photos by a few tourists, nothing special happened.
With food and fun, the day ended.
They only returned to the Feng Family after eating dinner outside, so they didn’t meet the Feng Family people. Even if they met occasionally, they only greeted them simply and didn’t interact much.
This continued for a few days.
On the afternoon of the fifth day, they drove back to the Feng Family after playing for the entire day. They parked the car and returned to Feng Qin’s residence, but they saw someone in her courtyard.
A person waiting there.
After parking the car, the three of them walked over.
Hence, she saw the person standing in the courtyard as soon as she walked in.
The person turned back and the three of them saw his face.
His face was undoubtedly exquisite with a warm smile.
He was wearing black trousers and a white shirt. He was wearing a navy blue tie and a pair of shiny leather shoes. He was holding a gift bag.
Although he was dressed like this, it did not hide his extraordinary temperament at all. He looked like an elegant young master.
Yan Jinyu had seen this person before.
She had met him on the plane when she returned from the capital with Yin Jiujin not long ago.
He was quite skilled and they even resolved an issue together.
Yan Jinyu remembered that his name was Feng Xu.
Feng Qin was first surprised to see him, then she was excited. “Cousin Xu, when did you come back?”
Xi Fengling was vigilant when she saw him.
The sun was about to set, but this person still appeared here. Even if he wasn’t from the Feng Family, he must be related to the Feng Family.
She was afraid that he would harm Feng Qin.
However, this did not affect her from observing him carefully. As she observed, she sighed inwardly. This person’s temperament was really similar to Feng Yun’s.
However, Feng Yun’s otherworldly aura was even stronger than his.
Seeing Feng Qin’s reaction, she finally lowered her guard against this person.
Feng Hua’s son, Feng Xu?
It seemed like he didn’t have any ill intentions, and Feng Qin seemed to treat him differently from the others in the Feng Family.
They were sizing Feng Xu up, and Feng Xu was sizing them up too.
His gaze swept past the two of them and he answered Feng Qin’s words with a warm smile, “I’ve been back for a few days. I’ve been here twice before, but I didn’t meet you because you’ve been leaving early and returning late these few days. You have friends with you, and it’s not good for me to disturb you at night, so I could only come earlier and wait here.”
“Then, why didn’t Cousin Xu call me? I would have made time to visit you if I knew you came back. You didn’t have to specially come here to wait.”
“Cousin Xu must have waited for a long time?”
“I didn’t wait long. I just came.” He handed her the gift bag in his hand. “This is a gift I got for you while I went somewhere else to lecture.”
Feng Xu was young, but he had a lot of experience.
The professors of the Imperial Capital University were often invited to lecture at the major universities.
Feng Qin took it. “Thank you.”
“Oh right, Cousin Xu, let me introduce you. These two are my friends. This is Yan Jinyu, and this is Xi Fengling.” She paused slightly when she introduced Xi Fengling.
Feng Xu smiled and nodded at Yan Jinyu, “Eldest Miss Yan.”
Yan Jinyu smiled too. “So you’re the eldest son of the Feng Family.”
However, Feng Xu frowned slightly. “Eldest Miss Yan, you must be joking. I’m not the eldest son of the Feng Family. I have a cousin above me. I’m the second eldest son in the Feng Family’s third generation.”
Yan Jinyu smiled. “I see. Second Young Master Feng, excuse me.”
“I can’t blame you since you don’t know.”
“You know each other!” Feng Qin exclaimed in surprise.
“We met once,” Feng Xu said.
Then, he looked at Xi Fengling. His gaze obviously stayed on Xi Fengling’s face for a few seconds before he retracted it calmly. “Miss Xi.”
“Second Young Master Feng,” Xi Fengling greeted him equally politely.
However, her gaze shifted between Yan Jinyu and Feng Xu.
Others might not know, but how could she not know?
Beauty Yu had clearly called him “the eldest son of the Feng Family” on purpose.
Why on purpose?
Naturally, it was to test Feng Xu.
The Feng Family knew that Feng Yun existed, but Feng Xu was the first person who had emphasized that the eldest grandson of the Feng Family was someone else when he was talking to someone he wasn’t familiar with.
No wonder Feng Qin treated him differently from others. It seemed like he usually treated Feng Qin well too.
This was just an appearance.
From the looks of it, this person was indeed not bad.
She hoped it wasn’t just an appearance.
“Don’t stand here. Come in and sit.” Feng Qin entered the passcode and opened the door.
Seeing the shabby living room, Feng Xu stopped in his tracks, “Qin’er, why didn’t you add something here?”
However, Feng Qin said indifferently, “I don’t live here often. I’m out all year round and I only come back once a year. It’s a waste to buy too many things.”
That was true, but this was her home after all. The living room was even simpler than the furnishings in the hotel lobby.
She clearly didn’t treat this place as her home.
Seeing his silence, Feng Qin knew what he was thinking.
“Cousin Xu, don’t think too much. I brought friends back this time, or else, I usually stay with my mother every time I come back. I don’t come here often.”
Her cousin didn’t know where she lived, and he wouldn’t really ask her mother even if she said that.
Actually, she would keep her mother company every time she returned to the Feng Family, but she never stayed over there.
She didn’t want to disturb her mother’s peace and also because her grandparents didn’t want her to stay with her mother for long. They were afraid that they would plot something.
The reason why she brought Jinyu and her sister over this time was because of Jinyu’s intimidation. That was why the two servants didn’t dare to approach them. In the past, when she went over alone and sat with her mother to eat, the servants would always stand by their side.
Hence, there was a reason why she was still worried when Jinyu said that no one would hear their conversation.
“Cousin Xu, sit first. I’ll get you guys a glass of water.”
There was only water in the living room.
Even the water dispenser was only moved in these two days.
The three of them sat down on the sofa one after another and Feng Qin went to get some water. Feng Xu’s gaze paused on Xi Fengling’s face for a second before she looked away.
He asked Yan Jinyu, “Eldest Miss Yan, why are you here in Cloud City?”
“Graduation trip.” Yan Jinyu smiled faintly.
It was unknown if Feng Xu believed her or not, but he still smiled and nodded without saying anything.
He looked at Xi Fengling. “I’ve lived in the capital for many years and have heard of Boss Xi’s famous name. I didn’t expect to meet you at my own home for the first time.”
This was to say that he knew Xi Fengling’s identity.
Xi Fengling flipped her hair. It was her usual charming posture. “It’s not a good reputation. It’s kind for Second Young Master Feng to give me face. You even described it as ‘famous’.”
“Boss Xi, you must be joking.”
“I realized that Boss Xi looks a little similar to my aunt and cousin. Boss Xi also has the word ‘Feng’ in her name. It’s really fate.”
Feng Qin, who had brought the water over, was shocked and almost knocked over the glasses of water.
However, Xi Fengling was very calm. Her smile remained unchanged and she was still seductive. “You only realized it now, Second Young Master Feng? I thought you could tell at first glance.”
“When I first saw Little Feng Qin in the capital, I felt that we looked very similar. Because of this, I even investigated if Little Feng Qin was my long-lost sister.”
However, she did not mention the results of the investigation.
“It’s precisely because we look alike that I became good friends with Little Feng Qin at first sight. This time, I accompanied Beauty Yu to Cloud City to stay in the Feng Family. I realized that I look more like Little Feng Qin’s mother. I even suspect that I’m a member of the Feng Family.”
“Old Madam Feng, who is also Second Young Master Feng’s grandmother, probably felt that I should be a member of the Feng Family and even suggested acknowledging me as her god granddaughter. However, I didn’t agree immediately and am still considering it.”
Her words successfully diverted Feng Xu’s attention.
His gaze was gentle but sharp. “My grandmother wants to acknowledge Boss Xi as her god granddaughter?”
Seeing his huge reaction, Xi Fengling’s eyes twitched slightly. “Yes, but I haven’t agreed yet.”
In the blink of an eye, Feng Xu’s emotions had been restrained. “Then, please consider it carefully, Boss Xi. With Boss Xi’s influence in the capital, the Feng Family will only rely on Boss Xi. The Feng Family really can’t help Boss Xi much.”
“I also heard that Boss Xi’s boyfriend is the Second Young Master of the Min Family. If you really acknowledged this relationship, the Feng Family would have gained a huge advantage.”
