Young Madam Lu... His young madam—!!!
Hu Dong stuck a finger into his ears and dug into them. He must have heard wrong, right? He rushed after his boss and entered the drivers side of the car.
"Boss, are you really married now?!" Hu Dong asked as he started the car.
Lu Jingze nonchalantly leaned back into the car seat and hummed softly in response.
Hu Dong: "!!!"
"Boss! Don tell me this is real!" Hu Dong exclaimed, he was only managing to keep his eyes on the road at that moment due to his shock.
Lu Jingze knew what was going on in his assistants head, he tapped his fingers on his thigh and smirked. "Indeed, it is real" he drawled.
Hu Dong lost control of the car and it swerved dangerously into the middle of the road almost bumping into other cars. Some drivers stuck out their heads from their cars and yelled at Hu Dong furiously for driving so carelessly.
Hu Dong felt a chill run down his spine, he shivered and gulped before he quickly rolled the window up. He accelerated and drove quickly from the noisy folks. Hu Dong knew that one of the many things that triggered his boss bad temper.
Only after they had driven away did Lu Jingzes temper loosen. He closed his eyes and relaxed while his fingers drummed rhythmically on his thigh.
Hu Dong swallowed the questions that had risen to his throat and quietly drove homeward. He switched to a song to help his boss relax.
"Welcome back, young master" the old butler of the home stood at the entrance of the house and received Lu Jingze.
"Mm," Lu Jingze let out a deep accent and gave a small nod. Behind him, Hu Dong greeted the old butler heartily as he walked into the house with his boss. Butler Xu smiled and nodded at the assistant before turning to his master.
"Young Master, dinner is going to be served after you have freshened up and attended to your other matters" the butler reported.
Lu Jingze paused, he threw a look at the butler and shook his head, "no need to prepare dinner, for now, that will come later, and remember to prepare a few more light dishes. Sweet ones specifically, you can also include seafood"
The young man frowned lightly and pinched the bridge of his nose as he mentioned this. It was written in the information sent to him that the young missus of the Meng family liked sweet foods and seafood.
"Get the Kitchen to prepare everything meticulously and when the time is right, I will get you to serve the dishes" he concluded.
"Yes, master" the butler nodded. Since the master asked him to prepare a meal for two, he naturally thought that Hu Dong was staying back. Probably, the assistant had a lot to discuss with Lu Jingze that night, he supposed and did not ask any further questions. Only Hu Dong narrowed his eyes suspiciously but did not comment.
"Also, I need you to clean up the next room to mine, you have an hour to redecorate to fit a lady" Lu Jingze instructed the butler and turned to Hu Dong,
"And you, send a message to Clark, I need him to send a piece of each of his custom-made designs in an hour. There should be a dress for all kinds of female activities. Whether casual dresses or formal ones, night dresses should also be included. Do we have any shoemakers signed with the company? Deliver every kind of shoe females love to wear down here and get Xu Ling to make the pieces of jewelry. You only have an hour" Lu Jingze instructed and walked away as soon as he did.
Hu Dong and the butler stood rooted to the ground, the assistant had his jaw dropped while the butlers wrinkled old face was frozen. Butler Xu tilted his body slightly and fixed his gaze on Hu Dong.
"Dong, pinch me, is this old man in a dream?" the butler uttered.
"Butler Xu, you are fully awake!" Hu Dong voiced helplessly. What could he do, if he had not witnessed things change drastically with his master since a few hours ago, he would have also guessed he was in a dream where the inhuman gets a chance to become human!
"Then, did young master just instruct me to prepare a room beside his? And to redecorate it to fit a woman?" The Butler questioned hurriedly.
"Butler Xu, it is just like that!" The assistant answered and rubbed his forehead. He thought about his assignment and he pinched the space between his brows angrily. He was supposed to be having a good rest but for the sake of a stray woman... He did not even want to think about it!
"Dong, you tell me what is happening! Did you and Master not go out for business deals? How come he came back to prepare for the arrival of a woman?! Could it be that your business partner this time is a lady from the fashion world?" the butler questioned in exasperation.
"Old man Xu..." Hu Dong sighed, "Let me tell you, it is like this... Actually, boss is married. He got his marriage certificate today, I saw it with my own eyes" the assistant explained.
"What?! Young Master is married? How am I just finding out about this now?!" Butler Xu felt his head buzz with the information he received, his face reddened and he was in disbelief.
Hu Dong understood how the butler felt, he gave him a comforting pat on his back and sighed for the umpteenth time that day. "I understand how you feel, Butler Xu... it was indeed so sudden that boss had to marry that stray woman"
Hu Dong was actually not pleased with the idea of his boss marriage. It happened so quickly that he could not do anything about it. Even if he could do anything, his boss would always do whatever he wanted. He even suspected that the woman had bewitched his boss. His boss had practiced abstinence for so many years and now this woman who popped out of nowhere...
Hu Dong sighed again, he did not want to think about the matter anymore. He had plenty of chance to deal with the woman later, he thought.
"Butler Xu, I will get going now," Hu Dong said.
The butler was too stupefied to send him off, he merely nodded and waved. He thought about what the assistant said about the woman his master married, he said she was a stray woman however, the butler believed his masters choice more.
No one could tell, the woman might really be his young madam, no matter the circumstances around her marriage with his master, he must be very careful. Of course, he could tell from his masters actions that he cared about this lady.
As far as he could recall, no one had ever been allowed to use the closest room to his masters room. Everyone believed that the room was preserved for someone special. It looks like that person had arrived now...
