Chapter One :Chapter 1

"Hi! Mrs. Lu. I'm with your husband at room No. 1308, Hilton Ganareim."

Su Wan looked down at the photo. A man and a woman, in bathrobes, on a king-sized bed.

Even an idiot could tell what happened between them.

This was not the first time she received such photo, but the eighty-sixth times. Every time, same man, different women who wanted to stole her title of "Mrs. Lu".

She was staring at the photo for a long while, and then pressed the save button. Su Wan would save those photos in a special document, and named the photos by number.

This one was "NO. 67".

Su Wan pursed her lips and her fingers, which were holding the phone. The knuckles gradually turned pale.

It had been three whole years since they got married. The women staying by his side had never been stopped.

There was a shiver that ran through her body as she sat in the living room, making her feel as though she were in an ice cave.

"Madam, what should we do with this invitation?" the maid asked worriedly.

Su Wan lowered her head and looked at the invitation letter on the table. Her face looked a little worse than before.

This was a banquet held by a business partner of the Lu family. The names of her and Lu Xiuyan were clearly written on it, and the secretary was specially sent over to invite them. It was very earnest.

She couldn't ignore it.

Su Wan rubbed her temples irritably, picked up her phone again, and dialled the number that she hadn't contacted for a long time.

The other person quickly answered, and the man's indifferent and low voice came from the microphone. "Who is it?"

"It's me."

Su Wan clenched her hands. She did not believe that Lu Xiuyan would not know that this number belonged to her.

He had just found a chance to humiliate her!

Sure enough, Lu Xiuyan gave a meaningful "oh" and said, "Mrs. Lu suddenly came to me. Could it be that something happened to your Su family?"

"No."

Su Wan held her temper and ignored his sarcasm. She said, "Mr. Li will hold a banquet this week. The invitation has been sent over. I want to attend it with you."

"Is that so?" Lu Xiuyan's smile deepened. "But I don't have the time."

"..." Su Wan bit her lips lightly. Although she had already guessed that Lu Xiuyan would not attend any banquet with her, her heart could not help but throb when she heard his indifferent attitude.

As if he could sense her embarrassment from her silence, Lu Xiuyan said sarcastically, "I still have something to do, so I don't have time to waste with you here."

As soon as he finished speaking, there was a beep from the other end of the line.

Lu Xiuyan hung up the phone. He couldn't even be bothered to listen to her say another word.

Su Wan leaned weakly on the sofa and covered her sore eyes with her warm palm.

Although this marriage was arranged by her parents, she thought that one day, Lu Xiuyan would accept her.

Unexpectedly, she had been waiting for his disgust and endless humiliation!

It had been three years. She didn't know if she could still hold on...

Su Wan suppressed the pain in her heart, got up, and left the quiet and depressing hall.

......

Soon, it was the weekend.

Su Wan arrived at the designated hotel on time according to the time on the invitation.

Perhaps it was still early when she got out of the car, and there were not many people in the lobby.

She stepped on high heels to greet him. Her blue dress was swaying at her ankles, revealing her long snow-white legs. Her long black hair, which had been over her shoulders, was coiled into a bun. A few strands of her hair hung on her slender neck, which was very attractive.

As soon as she arrived at the banquet hall, many men took the initiative to come over and say hello, but they were rejected by Su Wan one by one.

"Mrs. Lu, you're here." The vice president of the Li Group, who was entertaining guests, saw her at a glance and greeted her with a smile. "Mrs. Lu, you're so early. Huh? Where is Mr. Lu?"

"He won't come because he has something to do. He asked me to greet Mr. Li." Su Wan smiled gracefully and had already thought of an excuse in her heart.

Anyway, Lu Xiuyan didn't have time today. She only needed to come up with a suitable excuse.

"I see. It doesn't matter. I can understand. Mr. Li..."

The vice president chuckled. Suddenly, his expression changed and he looked behind Su Wan in surprise.

She didn't know what she was thinking about, but the vice president smiled awkwardly. "This... perhaps Mr. Lu temporarily has time again."

"I'm sorry, what?"

Su Wan did not understand his hint. She followed his line of sight with suspicion and immediately saw the movement at the entrance of the banquet hall.

The smile on her face disappeared as soon as she saw it!

A man in a pure black high-end suit walked over leisurely, and next to him was a woman with enchanting makeup.

That was exactly the "NO. 87" lady in the photo! Li Li'er!

Li Li'er held Lu Xiuyan's hand intimately and looked up shyly as she chatted with him. They were as close as a couple in love.

Su Wan clutched the bag in her hand and looked coldly at the man who suddenly appeared.

Almost in an instant, she was sure that he did it on purpose!

The strength of Su Wan's grip on the bag became more and more intense. The scene was simply a humiliation to her!

The excuse she had just said to the vice president was still lingering in her ears. The people around her didn't know whether it was because they saw that she didn't look well and were so embarrassed that they didn't dare to speak.

The surrounding atmosphere suddenly froze!

When Li Li'er saw her, her red lips curled into a smug smile. She then leaned over to Lu Xiuyan and deliberately asked, "Oh my, Mrs. Lu, you're here today too?"

Su Wan ignored this extra woman. She glared at Lu Xiuyan, gritted her teeth, and asked, "Didn't you say you didn't have time today?"

"Have I ever said that?"

Lu Xiuyan raised his eyebrows with a playful smile in his eyes. Just as he was about to say a few more words, he saw Su Wan's gradually turning pale.

He didn't know why, but he suddenly felt a burst of pain in his heart. The sneer that he was about to say was stopped.

But soon, the smile on his face was still the same, but there was more interest in his eyes.

He really didn't intend to attend today's banquet, but Li Li'er seemed to have heard the news from the crew. She was so noisy that she wanted to come over and make friends with celebrities.

He naturally knew what this woman was thinking, but when he thought that Su Wan would also attend the banquet tonight, he inexplicably agreed.

Now that he saw Su Wan's angry look, his smile deepened. He really wanted to know if the eldest daughter of the Su family could still maintain her usual elegance in such a situation.

"Maybe you heard me wrong. I've never told you that I'm busy," Lu Xiuyan said as he put his arm around Li Li'er's waist and sized her up with a faint smile.

The banquet was about to begin, and there were more and more people in the hall.

More or less, they all heard Lu Xiuyan's words and were pointing at her.

Su Wan's face darkened. She had not expected such a thing to happen.

At this moment, a familiar figure suddenly came from the crowd. Before Su Wan could see it clearly, the person walked over with a smile. His gentle eyes immediately attracted her attention.

"Xiuyan, Su Wan, why are you here so early?"

The man was Lu Xiuyan's younger brother, Lu Qifeng. He reached out to grab Su Wan's wrist, and beamed, "I thought you guys wouldn't come."

Lu Qifeng invited Su Wan politely while putting his hand on Lu Xiuyan's back. He laughed all the way and shook off Li Li'er without leaving a trace.

Su Wan whispered to Lu Qifeng, "Qifeng, when did you come here?"

Lu Qifeng arrived just in time to help her solve this awkward situation.

"I just arrived."

Lu Qifeng glanced at Su Wan's side and saw Li Li'er pretending to approach Lu Xiuyan. He didn't know what she was talking about, and she reached out her hand to Lu Xiuyan.

Because of this action, Li Li'er leaned to the side and looked as if she was about to get into Lu Xiuyan's arms. It was very ambiguous.

Lu Qifeng frowned and asked in a low voice, "Sister-in-law, are you okay? The woman beside my brother—"

Perhaps it was because he didn't want Lu Xiuyan to hear him, Lu Qifeng lowered his head and leaned over. His voice was very low.

Su Wan could only get close to him to hear his words clearly. Their heads were almost touching.

"Forget it." Lu Qifeng looked at Lu Xiuyan's face and sighed. He stopped talking about that woman and said, "Sister-in-law, I actually have one more thing to tell you when I come here this time."

"What is it?"

"That's..." Lu Qifeng's eyes flickered for a moment, and he said hesitantly, "I heard my father mention today that if you still can't get pregnant with my brother within a few months, he will withdraw the funds from Su Enterprises."
