MY BROTHER IN-LAW TURN HUSBAND, VOLUME 6 - Season 12 Episode 73
The next day, Jiang Yuyan arrived at the office. Lu Lijun didn’t return home, and all along, she was worried that he would overwork and fall sick. Given how much he had to work on the project, Jiang Yuyan knew he wouldn’t even have time to breathe.
Xiao Min was ready to tell her the schedule for the day; she asked, “Is Lu Lijun in office?”
“Yes, boss. He had already started working.”
“Did he have breakfast?” Jiang Yuyan asked.
“Not sure, but I will ask,” Xiao Min informed.
“Do it right away, then,” she instructed.
It was nothing surprising for Xiao Min. His boss’s care for Lu Lijun knew no bounds. When she could sacrifice the gift from Lu Qiang, then this much was nothing.
Xiao Min left and went to Lu Lijun’s office, “Good morning, Fourth young master.”
“Morning,” Lu Lijun replied, still busy with work.
Just then, Noah entered the office carrying breakfast for Lu Lijun and saw Xiao Min, to whom he bowed.
“Food for my boss,” Noah said as he kept it on Lu Lijun’s table.
“You can have it,” Lu Lijun said as he was not in the mood to eat.
“You can keep working; I don’t mind feeding you,” Noah countered.
Xiao Min looked at Noah, “Make sure he eats.”
Noah nodded, and Lu Lijun spoke, “Tell your boss I had breakfast.” Lu Lijun already guessed why Xiao Min was there.
“I don’t lie to my boss,” Xiao Min countered.
Lu Lijun picked up a glass of juice and had a sip, “Now, you don’t need to lie.”
Xiao Min left and went to his boss.
Jiang Yuyan looked at him questioningly, and Xiao Min answered, “He had a sip of juice.”
Jiang Yuyan sighed, “Send him to me and get something here to eat.”
Xiao Min nodded and left to go to Lu Lijun again after he ordered the food.
“Fourth young master, President Lu has asked for you,” Xiao Min informed.
Lu Lijun nodded, and Xiao Min left.
Noah gave his friend a surprising look, “Is this all to get your wife’s attention?”
“I don’t believe in messing with my work for such things. I have other ways to get her attention,” said Lu Lijun as he stood up to leave.
“But you are leaving your work to go to her.”
“When the wife calls, nothing is more important than her,” Lu Lijun replied and left to go out.
“Such a twisted mind,” Noah said only to hear his friend, “Less than yours.”
Lu Lijun went to Jiang Yuyan’s office. Knocking on the door, he entered the office. Jiang Yuyan looked at him. Though he had set his hair and must have washed his face, he looked tired. He wore the same clothes from the previous day. She was sure he didn’t sleep at all.
“Go inside and get fresh. You can wear your brother’s clothes,” she instructed.
Lu Lijun obediently went to the lounge. It surprised her to see he didn’t say or do anything annoying.
‘How come he became so obedient? Is it real, or am I dreaming?’ Jiang Yuyan thought, but she got the answer. Whenever he was tired, he acted like this. It seems like the day would go peacefully for her.
Jiang Yuyan continued her work. Xiao Min brought breakfast for Lu Lijun, and she instructed him to take it to the lounge.
When Xiao Min returned, she asked, “Is he ready?”
“Breakfast?” she asked.
“I informed, but it didn’t seem like he wanted to eat.”
“You can leave,” she instructed and stood up, “Does he want to fall sick or what?” she mumbled worriedly and went to the lounge.
Jiang Yuyan knocked on the door and entered the lounge where Lu Lijun was fixing his tie while standing in front of the mirror and saw her entering the room through the mirror.
She looked at him as their sights met through the mirror, “Your breakfast is there.”
“I had juice,” he replied and turned, intending to leave.
‘What happened to him suddenly. Why is he acting cold?’ Did something happen?’ she thought and ordered, “You are not allowed to leave unless you eat. Come here.”
Not arguing, Lu Lijun went to the breakfast table where Jiang Yuyan uncovered the food for him. “Finish it all.”
Calm-looking Lu Lijun obediently sat and ate everything while Jiang Yuyan sat in another chair to keep an eye on him if he eats or not.
Once Lu Lijun finished eating, she passed him water, and he had it too. His behavior was surprising for her. He had not said a single word to her on his own since he came and only followed her instructions.
Once he finished and stood up, she said, “Wait!”
Lu Lijun stopped and looked at her, His eyes neutral devoid of any emotion that it was impossible to predict what was in his mind.
“What happened? Is there something that’s bothering you?” she asked, but he just continued to look at her without answering her.
Not getting an answer, she asked, “Are you not feeling well?” and raised her hand to touch his forehead. “You seem to have a fever.” She looked worried. “We need to call the doctor before it gets bad,” she picked up her cell phone that she had placed on the breakfast table to call for the doctor as she mumbled, “What’s the need of working too much….”
Lu Lijun held her hand and took her cell phone away before she could call the doctor and finally spoke. “I am fine.”
Jiang Yuyan was adamant about caring for him. “But you need to get medicines and….”
He pulled her towards him and held her closer as he glared at her, “You seem to not understand what I need at the moment and why I am like this.”
Getting out of the shock of the sudden pull, she stared into his eyes. That pair of intense-looking eyes had something in them she could clearly understand now.
