The hatred in Lu Shu’s eyes was almost tangible. Lu Xiangtian could not ignore it, even if he wanted to. His eyes darkened. He said in a low voice, “That’s enough. This matter ends here. Ms. Zhao is different from the other women you dealt with previously. Also, she’s still holding your mother’s necklace. Let’s also not forget who she is. She’s the Eldest Lady of the Zhao family and the Young Madam of the Mu family. Do you think that the Zhao family and the Mu family will let you off if they find out what happened to her?”

“Then we’ll never let them find out!” Lu Shu’s eyes were bloodshot. She did not buy Lu Xiangtian’s excuse at all. How could the Zhao family and the Mu family be as powerful as the Lu Family? To put it bluntly, Lu Xiangtian simply did not want to fight for her. He was also bewitched by that b*tch and stood on her side to oppose him.

She was clearly his daughter, and she was the person closest to him in name. Why… why did everyone stand by that woman’s side?! Just like that b*tch from before. Just an insignificant policewoman, but there were so many people who liked her. Why?!

“Enough.” Lu Xiangtian was getting tired of Lu Shu’s persistent pestering. He shouted loudly and stared at Lu Shu with his sharp eyes. There was a sense of oppression within them.

Even though Lu Shu was unwilling, she didn’t dare to say anything when she saw him like this. She snorted coldly and turned her back.

After all, she was the precious daughter that he had gone through so much trouble to find. Lu Xiangtian did not want to push her too hard, so he sighed. He softened his tone slightly. “Alright, this matter ends here. You should be more careful with Li Yan. Since he’s already married to you, he should keep a little distance from other women. You can interfere, but don’t interfere too much. If you mention it to him properly, he might listen to you.”

Lu Xiangtian’s face suddenly darkened when he said this. He said faintly, “In the end, this was also your own choice. If you had listened to my words and thought about politics back then…”

Lu Shu’s expression changed again when she heard Lu Xiangtian’s words. She said hurriedly, “Father, I know I was wrong. I’ll handle this matter carefully.”

Since Lu Shu had already relented, Lu Xiangtian naturally did not continue. He nodded and said, “Alright, it’s best if you can figure it out on your own. It’s getting late. Do you want to stay and have lunch with me?”

Lu Shu’s expression froze, and she said awkwardly, “Forget it. Before I came here, the cook was already preparing something. Also, I have something urgent that I want to take care of. I’ll accompany you to have lunch next time.”

Lu Xiangtian nodded and did not continue to keep her there. “Alright, be careful on your way.”

“Okay, then dad, I’ll be leaving first.” Lu Shu said goodbye to Lu Xiangtian one last time before turning around and walking out. She was afraid that Lu Xiangtian would think of something else, or say something that would make her lose control of her emotions.

“The Miss…” the old butler escorted Lu Xiangtian as he watched Lu Shu leave. He could not help but speak when Lu Shu’s figure completely disappeared from their sight.

“The child is just too stubborn when it comes to relationships.” Lu Xiangtian sighed. He had witnessed Lu Shu’s almost perverted possessiveness towards Li Yan all these years. If Lu Shu had not insisted on marrying Li Yan all those years ago… he definitely would not have approved of Li Yan.

But why did it have to be his daughter taking the initiative? One of them was willing to be beaten up, and the other was willing to suffer. If he, an old man, interfered, it would attract the resentment of others, so he had no choice but to suppress the dissatisfaction in his heart, he could only watch helplessly as his daughter, whom he had finally found, married a son-in-law who seemed to have no prospects and could even be considered his natural enemy.

Lu Xiangtian knew that Li Yan did not like Lu Shu, and their marriage was not as clean as he had imagined. However, as long as his daughter liked Lu Shu, he had nothing to say. Therefore, he had always turned a blind eye to the matters between the two of them over the years. As long as no one was killed, he would not bother or care about it.

However, this time, Lu Shu had indeed gone a little overboard.

The butler could naturally hear the helplessness in Lu Xiangtian’s words. He smiled and sighed. “Did she not take after you, sir? You only cared about the lady of the house in your entire life. Even now, the lady only has eyes for him. That’s why she feels that way. She fears that he would leave her.”

“It’s a pity that Li Yan is also unromantic. Shu’er has treated him so well, but he doesn’t know how to cherish her at all. What a blockhead!”

The butler heard Lu Xiangtian’s disgruntled complaints and knew that he was feeling sorry for his precious daughter. The corners of his lips curled up slightly. He took the moment to remind him. “You’ve had the talk with her, so, those people…”

Lu Xiangtian’s expression turned cold. His narrowed eyes suddenly shot out a trace of murderous intent. “Get someone to take care of them. If they don’t keep their mouths shut, even if we send them back by Shu’er’s side, it will only bring trouble to her. Also, take care of the ones left at the station. Don’t let Li Yan have the chance to get anything out of them that will implicate Shu’er.”

The butler nodded. Then, as if he had thought of something, he could not help but say, “There are two more matters.”

“What is it?”

“You seem to be very interested in that Ms. Zhao recently. Our men tell me that the Young Master seems to be getting quite close to that Ms. Zhao recently. I wonder if…” The butler did not finish his sentence, Lu Xiangtian already understood what he wanted to express.

“Get someone to keep an eye on him.”

“Just… keep an eye on him?”

Lu Xiangtian turned to look at the butler. “Just keep an eye on him. You don’t have to worry about anything else. I’d like to see what kind of trouble he can stir up.”

“Yes, I understand.” The butler lowered his head and did not continue to dwell on this issue.

“What about the other matter?”

The butler heard Lu Xiangtian’s question and subconsciously raised his head to glance at Lu Xiangtian. He paused and said, “There’s another matter… it’s about the Miss’ background.”

Lu Xiangtian’s eyes flashed, and his expression instantly turned cold. “Shu’er’s background?”

“Yes, my men reported that someone seemed to be investigating her background, but they found it out in time and didn’t leak it out. I also heard that he has met with an accident and is now in the hospital.”

“Just an accident?” It would be too much of a coincidence if it was an accident. They had just noticed that the person was investigating Lu Shu, and then the person had met with an accident and was sent to the hospital. No matter how they looked at it, it did not seem right.

“Was it our people who did it?”

The butler shook his head. “I sent someone to investigate. It was indeed not an accident. As for the person who did it, it seemed to be… the eldest young master.”

Lu Xiangtian raised his eyebrows in surprise.
