New Chapter: Luoyang Brocade Ch. 8 Part 1
Chapter 8, Part 1: Lu Qian
Lu Hong stood on the same spot for a long time.
A familiar voice interrupted his thoughts, “Big Brother!”
Lu Hong returned to his senses, smiled and shouted, “Second Brother.”
The young boy stood in front of him was about eleven or twelve years old. He had pale skin and delicate eyes and brows. He was Lu Family’s second young master, Lu Qian.
Lu Qian was born immaturely less than eight months, and he was sickly and weak since young. He had to consume lots of expensive supplements and medicinal soups in order to grow up safely. His body wasn’t as good as those same age young boy, he wasn’t very tall as well, only up to Lu Hong’s chest.
Lu Hong’s relationship with his stepmother was quite cold, but he was very caring and loving towards his younger brother. Their relationship were quite profound.
“I didn’t see you when I finished my lunch.” Lu Qian complained with dissatisfaction, “I had to look for you everywhere. Why are you standing here alone?”
Lu Hong subconsciously did not want to mention about his encounter with Ling Jing Shu and casually said, “Peony usually blooms in April but Ling Residence’s Peony Garden planted a complex-colored peony which blooms in March. I am alone and bored, so I come here for a walk and take a look.”
He was afraid that Lu Qian couldn’t stop asking. He pointed to the peony not far away and said, “Look, this is Luoyang Brocade. One branch have different colors of flowers, the branches and leaves are different as well!”
Lu Qian followed Lu Hong’s eyes and looked over.
The huge flowers were hidden among the green leaves and branches, they were so beautiful.
“It indeed is very beautiful.” Lu Qian smiled and said, “Heard from grandmother that this is planted by Cousin Shu. Cousin Shu is really skilled, but it’s a pity that she is recuperating, I still have not seen her.”
“Cousin Shu was here not long ago!”
Lu Hong blurted out.
Lu Qian’s eyes flashed with a glimmer of light and his voice was a little bit strange, “Big Brother, you have seen Cousin Shu?”
Lu Hong didn’t pay attention to Lu Qian’s strangeness. He nodded and said, “Yes, I met her. When I came to the Peony Garden, she happened to be here too.”
The stunning first sight was deeply imprinted in his heart. Probably in this life time, he would not forget about it.
Regrettably, for some unknown reason, Ling Jing Shu’s first impression of him did not seem so good. In fact, it was very bad.
There must be some misunderstanding that he did not know of. They next time they meet, he would ask her why and resolve the misunderstanding.
Lu Hong’s thoughts floated and floated. It took a moment for him to return to his senses.
After he returned to his senses, he met with Lu Qian’s eyes, “Big Brother, what are you thinking about? Are you thinking about Cousin Shu?”
Lu Hong coughed with some guilty conscience, “No such thing, you don’t talk nonsense.”
Lu Qian blinked and suddenly smiled, “Big Brother, is Cousin Shu very beautiful? Is she gentle?”
Lu Hong suppressed the ripple in his heart and nodded, “Yes, she is really very beautiful.” She was pretty but she wasn’t gentle at all. Her eyes were cold and could freeze people.
Lu Qian continued to ask, “What did you say to her?”
Lu Hong was about to answer when he suddenly felt that something was wrong. He couldn’t help but laugh, “Why are you asking so many questions? We just met for the first time, we just exchanged name and greeted each other. We didn’t say anything at all.”
Of course the part where he was rejected was not mentioned.
There was a trace of unnaturalness in Lu Qian’s smile, “Nothing, I just ask casually.” Soon the topic was diverted, “Lunch break is almost over. Let’s go back to Ling Residence’s home school! If not we will be late.”
Lu Hong smiled and responded. Before he left the place, he subconsciously looked at the blooming Luoyang Brocade.
Lu Qian kept Lu Hong’s delicate move in his eyes. His eyes had a trace of gloom that was not matching with his age.
