Chapter 32: Family is My Bottom Line, Who Destroyed it Will Die…

Lin Xiyu was in a very complicated mood, she had doubts about Lu Junting before. She suspected that he was really using her as Lin Xiqian said, and because of her doubts she was more or less dissatisfied in her heart. Her attitude towards him was obviously cold this time.

But now, he bought the letter from her father and gave it to her. It was probably the reason why he brought her to the auction, and she almost missed the auction because of her discontent with him.

This kind of complicated emotion was brought home, and the time was already very late when they returned, Little baby was also sleeping at this time. Lin Xiyu returned to the room, seeing the sleepy Little baby on the bed. This time Little Baby slept with her, so the nanny would naturally put him in her room.

Lin Xiyu kissed his face, then walked to the table, turned on the lamp to the darkest, and only then she carefully opened the letter.

“My dear Xixi, you are half a year old today. I held you on my lap and cut the cake for you. You were so happy, and couldn’t stop smiling. Your eyes seemed to be filled with stars. And now, I sit under a star-filled sky to write this letter that I will give to you in the future.”

Lin Xiyu looked up at the night sky. Today’s night sky was cloudless, the stars were high in the sky, and her father wrote this letter the same night.

At this moment, there was her child lying on her bed, and when her father looked at her half-year-old, was he as gentle as she was looking at her Little Baby?

It was such a coincidence that a few years ago, on a starry night, her father wrote this letter to her, and years later, her child was as old as she was then, and also on a starry night, she sat at her table and read this letter written to her by her father.

The night was still the same night, and the stars were twinkling as they were years ago, but they were separated by so long a time and space, blending the memories of two generations.

The two pages full of his father’s joy of becoming a father and his love for his young daughter were written. He said that she was the heart he held in the palm of his hand and wanted to take care all the time. He said that before she was born, he was a naive little boy in his heart, but after she was born, he grew up overnight and knew the weight of the word responsibility.

The letter was also full of longing for the future, writing that if she married in the future, he would happily send her to the groom during the day, but at night he would hide alone in the room and cry. 

He said that if she had a child in the future, he would hold the child on his lap and teach his grandchild to write one stroke at a time just as he had taught her to write.

There were many, many of them, and every word was a love that couldn’t be dissolved. Lin Xiyu repeated it several times, and tears moistened her eyes again and again.

In the middle of the night, she put away the letter paper neatly, and then kissed the paper, carefully walked out of the room, and pushed open Lu Junting’s door.

Lu Junting’s room was still lit, it was so late but he hadn’t slept yet. He was sitting on the bed, reading at the moment.

“It’s so late, why haven’t you slept?”

Lu Junting put the book down, “You didn’t sleep either? Why did you come to my room?”

Lin Xiyu walked to the side of the bed and sat down. At this time, her heart was overflowing, she was silent for a while and said, “Brother Junting, thank you.”

She really thanked him from the bottom of her heart.

Lu Junting moved a little to her side, his fingers gently pinched her chin to lift her face, and asked her, “Are you crying?”

“En.” Lin Xiyu was a little embarrassed, “Looking at my dad’s letter, I miss him.”

Lu Junting let go of his hand and said, “Since you are here, let’s sleep here. Come up.”

He pulled the quilt away and signaled to her. Lin Xiyu was very cooperative, obediently lay down in the bed, and Lu Junting helped her cover the quilt.

Lin Xiyu was really grateful for Lu Junting, so she said to him with a solemn face, “Is there anything brother Junting needs me to do? If I can do it, I can help you.”

“There’s nothing you need to do, just know to run home when it rains in the future.”



Lin Xiyu looked at him with a puzzled expression, and Lu Junting raised his eyebrows slightly, “Don’t understand?”

Lu Junting laid down beside her and said, “Your parents are gone, you still have me and Chengmao. You just need to know that you still have home.”

Home? Lu Junting and Little Baby gave her home. This kind of feeling was so weird, she and Lu Junting became family, but technically, he and Little Baby were really her family.

At this moment, Lin Xiyu chose to believe Lu Junting. She believed that he was not using her, and he was not as hateful as Lin Xiqian said. If he really used her as a tool, how would he still take the trouble to pay attention to his father’s letter to her, and how would he spend money to buy it to please her?

Even if Lu Junting did not like her, he also wanted to live a good life with her for the sake of the child. In this case, then why did she think so much?

What was love? Marriage did not necessarily need love, two people could get along and could also live a good life right?

Lin Xiyu moved to his side, leaned his head into his arms and said, “Okay, I promise you. When it rains, I know to run home.”

She took the initiative to arch into his arms, undoubtedly pleasing Lu Junting. Lu Junting did not speak, but she heard him laugh softly above her head.

The next morning, Lin XIyu first fed her Little Baby, and when she went downstairs with her Little Baby, she saw Lu Junting sitting on the sofa in the living room, and a bunch of documents were placed on the coffee table in front of him. Seeing her, Lu Junting waved to her and said, “Come and sign all these.”

Lin Xiyu gave Little Baby to the nanny, walked over with a puzzled look and asked, “What are these?”

Lu Junting said, “These are my private property, including more than ten properties, several hotels, several playgrounds and several entertainment venues, you sign on them, and in the future half of these will be yours.”


These should all be his pre-marital property. So, was he going to give her half of his pre-marital property?

She didn’t move for a long time, Lu Junting asked, “What’s wrong?”

“Why give me this?”

Lu Junting took it for granted, “You are my wife, you deserve it.”


“I should have let you sign it a long time ago, but I was too busy some time ago, plus you were in labor. These materials were troublesome to organize, so it took so long.” Lu Junting handed her the pen, “Come and sign.”

Lin Xiyu felt that she had no contribution to Lu, and she didn’t have the confidence to sign at all.

“Didn’t you say that you want to live a good life?” Lu Junting said again.

She did say that she wanted to live a good life, but he really didn’t need to give her these things, which were all his pre-marital property. Looking at the densely packed documents on the coffee table, Lin Xiyu felt a little flustered.

Lu Junting directly grabbed her wrist and pulled her to sit next to him, and shoved the pen into her hand, “Since you want to live a good life, then sign all of these, and I can feel at ease if you sign these.”

Lin Xiyu did not quite understand what she had to do with him being at peace when she signed this, but she was also in a mess looking at this pile of documents now, and she didn’t have the heart to think so much at all.

Later, Lin Xiyu was confused and really signed and pressed her handprint. Lu Junting asked his assistant to sort out the documents, and said to her, “Will you take my car to work later?”

Lin Xiyu was still a little confused, and nodded vaguely when he heard, “Okay.”

After getting into the car, Lin Xiyu only felt that her brain was still dizzy. She reacted after realizing it, so she was not a rich woman with dozens of properties, plus several playgrounds and hotels?

Lin Xiyu moved stiffly and wanted to see Lu Junting. Lu Junting met her gaze and asked, “What’s wrong?”

Lin Xiyu turned her head silently again, and suddenly became a rich woman… It was incredible.

Not long after Lin Xiyu arrived at the club, a text message entered her mobile phone. She picked up her mobile phone to take a look, it was sent by Lin Xiqian.

Lin Xiqian: “What did you think?”

Lin Xiyu thought for a while and sent him a reply: “I won’t divorce Lu Junting.”

Lin Xiqian’a call came immediately, and he asked, “What’s going on? Did Lu Junting do something to you?”

“He didn’t do anything to me. Those two things are not necessarily what he did, whether the contraceptive pill is true or false is not certain, even if it is fake, it’s not necessarily Lu Junting to replace it, it’s possible that the store is selling a counterfeit. He is also very nice to me during my marriage to him, and he doesn’t use me as a tool as you said.”

Lin Xiqian was silent for a long time, and he suddenly sneered and said, “I have to say that Lu Junting is really capable. He easily reversed your opinion of him.”

Lin Xiyu said, “It’s not as serious as you think, you don’t have to think so badly of him. I know better than you of what kind of attitude he has towards me.”

“Okay, since you have already thought about it, then I respect your choice, but if you need any help in the future, you can come to me. You always remember that no matter what happens, I’m your brother.”

Lin Xiyu felt that Lin Xiqian probably really cared about her. She nodded and said, “Okay, I know.”

Lin Xiqian had just come out of surgery when a little nurse came running to him, “Dr. LIn, someone is looking for you.”

“Is it a patient?”

“No, he said that he’s a friend of yours, and I asked him to wait in your office.”

The man heard the sound of his voice as he stood, looked sideways, greeting him especially politely, “Hello, Dr. Hinton.”

The special doctor’s office was a separate, ten-square-meter office, enough to accommodate two people. However, Lu Junting’s ‘don’t enter’ aura was too strong. He stood upright there, far away, but also forced him to breathe hard.

Lin Xiqian put the file bag in his hand on the desk. He knew that in the face of this dangerous man, he had to be vigilant at all times. He didn’t want to go around with him, so he asked him directly, “What did you come to me for?”

“You are Xixi’s step brother, and I, as his husband, have the obligation to come and see you on her behalf.”

Lin Xiqian let out a sneer and said, “Okay, you don’t have to pretend with me, just say it bluntly. Why do you want to find me?”

“Actually, I should ask you this.”

Lin Xiqian looked at Lu Junting. His expression was as usual, but the bottom of his dark eyes could not be seen. Such a gaze, could not help but give people a feeling—— this person was unfathomable.

“What do you mean?” Lin Xiqian asked him.

“You suddenly approached my wife, what exactly are you trying to do?”

“Lin Xiyu’s parents have saved my life, and I feel the kindness of the elders and I want to take care of her, it’s as simple as that.”

“Take care of her? Do you want to take care of her or do you want to take advantage of her?”

Lin Xiqian smiled mockingly and said, “When it come to use her, who can compare to you, Mr. Lu?”

Lin Xiqian was wearing a white coat, his hands were naturally placed in the white coat, and there was a mobile phone in his pocket. He opened the mobile phone and opened the record application, then pressed the record button.

Lu Junting asked with an incomprehensible expression, “I don’t understand what you mean.”

He didn’t know if Lu Junting really didn’t understand or deliberately pretended not to understand. Lin Xiqian said directly, “You pretended to buy birth control pills for Xixi, but deliberately replaced the pills, pretending to take her to do abortion with good intentions, but you have long colluded with the doctor to trick her into not being able to have an abortion. Don’t you think it’s very bastard to bully a little girl who is not deeply involved in the world? I would like to ask you why you are playing such a trick on a little girl? Want to use her to have a child for you, because she looks like your first love? Do you want to treat her as a stand-in?”

Lu Junting’s expression did not change, his tone was still calm as a wave, “Speak with evidence, do you have evidence to prove that I did this? If not, you slander me, so, Mr. Hinton is not afraid that I will sue you for slander?”

Lin Xiqian: “...”

This person was really watertight, only last time he played tricks on him in front of Lin Xiyu. At that time he did not also deliberately let him know that he was provoking him? At this moment, he pretended in front of him, he had to say that this scheming bastard was really good at hiding himself, and there was no flaw left at all.

Lu Junting continued, “You said that I use her, but you can’t come up with definitive evidence. You said that you want to take care of her, but you sow discord everywhere and destroy my relationship with her. She has no father and mother, my child and I are her only relatives. You don’t want her family to live in harmony, but do things to destroy her family. As the saying goes, it’s better to tear down ten temples than to break a marriage. You destroy the happiness of other families, are you not afraid of the wrath of God?”

“Am I sowing discord?” Lin Xiqian smiled dryly, “I’m afraid, the one who is sowing discord at every turn is Mr. Lu, right? When we had dinner together that day, didn’t Mr. Lu deliberately provoked me and wanted to provoke my relationship with Lin Xiyu?”

Lu Junting suddenly looked at him deeply. Lin Xiqian clenched his mobile phone subconsciously, somehow, by his gaze, making his heart tremble violently. THere was a fierceness hidden under his eyes, as if it could penetrate all the way to the bottom of his heart. 

Being looked at by him like this, he even began to wonder if Lu Junting knew that he was recording quietly?

Lu Junting was silent for a while and then said, “If you are frank, why are you afraid that I will sow discord. In other words, if you really think that I’m sowing discord, why do you have such a big reaction that day?”

His frank expression of a thief catched a thief really made people angry. His answer was perfunctory, but he still turned him back.

Lin Xiqian knew that there was probably no need to record this conversation. This person knew too well how to hide, so he would not leave the handle to others so easily.

“Are you here only to tell me this?” Lin Xiqian asked him directly.

“These are just some of them.”

“Oh? There’s another? No need to beat around the bush, just say it.”

“I care about my family.”

Lin Xiqian glanced at him, what did it have to do with him if Lu Junting cared about his family? He was too lazy to reason with him, waiting for him to continue.

“My wife is very important to me, and I also attach great importance to my child.” He stepped forward slowly, walked to his side and stopped, but his tone suddenly turned cold, “Family is my bottom line, whoever destroys it will die.”

The cold warning words, he deliberately put weight on each word, like a heavy hammer that struck heavily in his heart.

But then his toned returned to normal, and he said politely, “As Xixi’s husband, you are his step brother, and I wish Mr. Hinton all the best on her behalf.”

Lu Junting didn’t do anything more, and he left after saying that.

Lin Xiqian took out his mobile phone. He originally wanted to record Lu Junting’s words and took them to Lin Xiyu, who knew this man was so good at hiding and always watertight.

Lin Xiqian rubbed his brows. Lu Junting came over today to warn him, the threatening words were in his ears. Lin Xiqian was very clear that this person was not easy to deal with. Lin Xiyu fell on his hands, it was simply undoubtedly a sheep into the mouth of the tiger, and it was not easy to snatch the meat from his mouth.

Lin Xiyu planned to buy a gift for Lu Junting, he gave her gifts several times, and she had not returned them. It just so happened that her salary this month was paid, and Lin Xiyu was not in a hurry to go home after work. Now that Little Baby could drink milk powder, she didn’t have to go back to breastfeeding in a hurry after work.

Lin Xiyu went to the mall for a walk, and finally picked a belt for Lu Junting, which was cost-effective. She spent more than 10,000 yuan, which was the best she could afford.

After eating at night, Lu Junting went to the study, and Lin Xiyu went to him with the purchased gift. Lu Junting looked at a beautiful box she handed over and asked, “What is this?”

“A gift for you.”

This made Lu Junting interested, this little girl actually bought a gift for him?

“What is it?” He asked.

“You can open it and see.”

Lu Junting took the box and opened it, there was a belt lying inside. The design was simple, but it was also to his taste. It seemed that she had done some research before buying a gift, and specially learned about his preferences. He was very satisfied that she had this heart.

“I don’t know what you liked, so I just bought this.”

The first time she gave him a gift, she was embarrassed. She was afraid that he would not like it and she was somewhat apprehensive.

“Why do you suddenly want to give me a gift?”

“You helped me take my father’s letter, this is a thank you gift.”

Lu Junting said, “I’m your husband, taking a thing of what you like and sending you is what I should do, you don’t have to be so polite.”

Lin Xiyu also said, “Then… I’m also your wife ah, and you don’t have to be polite when I give you a gift.”

Hearing the phrase ‘I’m your wife’, Lu Junting’s expression softened significantly. Yes, this girl could clearly recognize her identity.

Lu Juntin nodded and said, “Since that’s the case, then I’m not polite.”

Lin Xiyu hurriedly said, “Of course, of course, don’t be polite.”

Lu Junting got up from the desk and walked to her. He unbuckled the belt on his body, stretched out his long arms cleanly. The action was dashing, looking at it actually made her feel handsome.

Pulling out his belt, he said to her again, “Help me put it on?”

Lin Xiyu took out the belt and squatted in front of him, helping to put the belt on his pants waist buckle, but Lin Xiyu was inexperienced, when the button on the back waist, how to toss it was not good, wrapped around the back, the front was crooker. She had to hold the belt buckle in one hand, and wrapped the other hand around his back, almost encircling his entire waist.

At first, she didn’t feel anything, but she inadvertently raised her head, just looked at Lu Junting’s eyes, she instantly realized that this position seemed a little unsightly. Fortunately, the button behind was finally set, Lin Xiyu hurriedly lowered her head to help him buckle the button, but this was the first time Lin Xiyu got a man’s belt, she buckled it wrong, tossed for a while, and her palms were starting to sweat.

At this moment, she was squatting in front of Lu Junting, a pair of hands tossed on his waist. From Lu Junting’s point of view, this posture was really a little delicate, but she also had to frown her beautiful brows, looking at him with a misty eye, with an expression full of grievance, “How to buckle this? I can’t buckle it.”

Lu Junting felt that his throat was tight, and even his breathing couldn’t help but slow down. He pulled her arm and pulled her up directly, saying, “No need to buckle it, anyway, it will be unbuckled in a while.”

Lin Xiyu automatically understood his sentence that he would unbuckle it in a while as taking off his pants before going to sleep. It wasn’t until she raised her head to meet his gaze at her that she felt his eyes were not quite right. It was fiery, with a burst of fire rising outwar, as if to burn on her body.

“Brother Junting?”

Squatting in front of him and tossing for a while, a layer of sweat appeared on her forehead, like dew-soaked petals, delicate and savory.

Lu Junting unconsciously stretched out his thumb and rubbed the sweat on her forehead with his fingertips, moist and warm, and unconsciously used his fingers to rub it.

Lin Xiyu also touched her forehead, only to find that she was sweating, and she said embarrassedly, “I’ll wipe it.”

But before she could turn around, the man suddenly grabbed the back of her head, and he was hooked by her and pulled forward. The next moment his lips were pressed against her.

Her breath was instantly plundered by him, and what climbed up in an instant was not only the temperature of her checks, but also her pounding heart.

However, it was not the first time he kissed her. Lin Xiyu quickly came to her senses, closed her eyes, put her hands on his neck, and responded awkwardly. He led her to his wide desk, gently hugged her to the table, and released her lips. Lin Xiyu gasped, her cheeks were crimson, and the pair of her eyes were flushed.

“After a while, don’t whine, be natural for a bit, if you want to scream, just scream, okay?”

He suddenly spoke to her in a raspy voice, lowered and very softly. He spoke in such a voice, very confusing, as if coaxing people.

Lin Xiyu didn’t quite understand the meaning of his words, and she glared at him in confusion and asked, “What do you want me to scream?”

“After a moment, do… things at the time.”


Lin Xiyu understood what he meant, her hot face felt hot again several degrees. She seemed angry and glared at him strangely, but she did not know that her eyes full of waves were not deterrent at all, but seductive.

Annoyed, she snapped at him, “I won’t scream.”

Lu Junting continued to coax her, “Just be natural, don’t suppress it, don’t deliberately hold it in.”

Where did she hold it? And how could he say such shameful words to her in such a tone like a negotiation?

“I won’t scream, I can’t, I don’t want to…”

The little girl was so angry, she was shy and angry. Seeing this, Lu Junting agreed without waiting for her to finish her words, “Okay, okay, no screaming.”
