Xiao Hang nodded and said, “She is back. She has been back for a while. Originally, I was going to arrange for you to meet and make it clear. But I received a task temporarily, so I had to leave Quill City. Jingjing is very worried about my safety, waiting for my news all the time. She has no mood to do anything else and has been staying at home all the time. How about this, when I’m done with my work, I’ll call Jingjing and let’s have dinner together.”
“Okay. Captain Xiao, call me in advance. I’ll arrange it.”
“Okay, okay, okay… Mr. Cohen, don’t see me off. Please go back. Goodbye!”
Xiao Hang waved at Alex and Big Ken and stepped back to the car.
Big Ken didn’t turn his head to look at Alex, but said with a faint smile, “Young Master, aren’t you a little tangled?”
“Huh?” Alex was stunned. “Brother Big Ken, what do you mean?”
“It must be a woman! In the past, I was quite envious of you. There are so many beautiful women around you. Any one of them is at the goddess level. But now, I think it’s better to be simple. Like me, I don’t have much contact with the opposite sex, and I only like Wendy from beginning to end. I don’t have any emotional problems at all.”
“You’re talking about this… Brother Big Ken, it seems that you know me very well. I’m not a playboy. Like you, I always have only one person in my heart, Isla. As for other male friends, they are just friends. At most, they can become brother and sister. That’s all. This is my real idea. As for Xiao Jing, I guess she has figured it out.”
“What about Bai Ling?”
“Hiss… Bai Ling? From the beginning, I used her as my sister.”
“Young Master, I believe that you treat Bai Ling as your sister, but it’s hard to say whether she treats you as her brother or not.”
“Brother Big Ken, did you see something?”
“Not only did I see that Bai Ling is interested in you, but Wendy also told me about it in private. According to Wendy, Sister Bai Ling has been poisoned by you and is deeply fascinated by you. If you really don’t intend to develop her into something, I suggest you find an opportunity to make it clear to her. This matter is neither big nor small.”
“Phew… All right.”
Alex could not help but smile bitterly. He had never thought that he would encounter such a problem before.
But now was not the time to talk about this.
After a while, Alex returned to Gold Stone, went straight into Felix’s office, and asked directly, “Felix, I remember that you said last time you had something to tell me, but I had something urgent to do at that time. Now I finally have time. Tell me, what’s the matter?”
“Ahem, Mr. Cohen, what, I…” Felix scratched his head and said with a smile, “I may be a father!”
Alex suddenly stood up, reached out his hand and pounded on Felix’s chest. He said excitedly, ” Felix, you can do it. You started to nurture people without saying a word? No, Felix… I just saw Quinn as usual, and there was no sign of pregnancy. Don’t tell me that it was not Quinn who was pregnant.”
“How can that be?” Felix was anxious. “I’m such a pure person. How could I do that? A few days ago, I took Quinn to the hospital for an examination. It’s only been two months, and we can’t see it now. The doctor said that it will usually take four or five months to show her pregnancy.”
“I see. Then you have to find some time to get the certificate.”
“I want to discuss this with you. If we get married, Quinn and I will be delayed for a period of time. What about the company then? Quinn and I are thinking about getting our marriage certificate first. When we are a little free, we can hold the ceremony. There are still honeymoons, relatives, and so on. It will take a lot of time.”
“No, no, no. We can wait for anything else. We can’t delay the marriage, let alone that Quinn is pregnant. Felix, you and Quinn can discuss it and decide the date as soon as possible. I’ll arrange the company’s affairs. By the way, you can choose a date. Leave the rest to me!”
“Well… All right then. Brother Alex, in fact, I planned to hold a wedding on the same day when you are sure about your relationship. But Quinn got pregnant unexpectedly. I’m afraid I can’t wait for you.”
“You settle this first. To be honest, I haven’t seriously considered getting married yet…”
Although Alex had thought about marrying Isla many times, it was just a dream. Now that their relationship was settled, they were not prepared for it. However, under the influence of Felix, the marriage was finally on the agenda.
Of course, the first thing to do now was to find an opportunity to ask for Isla’s opinion.
After all, marriage was between two people…
After work, Alex invited Isla to a high-end couple’s restaurant. After having a romantic dinner, they went to watch a love movie together. After that, they returned to the villa area. Alex got out of the car and followed the plan. He said to Isla, “It’s not 10 o’clock yet. It’s quite early. Why don’t we walk together?”
Isla stared at Alex warily. “What are you going to do?”
“Just pretend to be familiar with the terrain. I’ve moved here for a while, and I haven’t turned around yet. By the way, I have good news for you.”
“Really? For the sake of the good news, I can give you half… 20 minutes.”
“Then let’s go. This way…”
Without further ado, Alex stretched out his right hand and pulled Isla to the sidewalk on the side of the road. At the same time, he put his left hand behind his back and sent an order to Big Ken, “There’s no need to follow us.” Today, he wanted to find out Isla’s information. He had finished his draft and had even designed the plot. But now, he was still a little nervous when he tried to practice it. Because according to the plan, the first thing he needed to do now was to hold hands with Isla after winning the opportunity to “be on a date” like this!
If Isla was unwilling to hold his hand, then there was no need to mention marriage at all.
Alex coughed twice and made a short self-circulation to calm down. She pretended to look down at the road and saw the position of Isla’s hand from the corner of her eyes. She pretended to accidentally touch it a few times, and then plucked up the courage to hold Isla’s hand tightly.
“Ah… what are you doing?”
Isla was so scared that she trembled all over. She instantly stopped and stared at Alex.
However, Isla just shook her hand a few times and gave up before getting rid of Alex.
After receiving the feedback, Alex felt relieved. He pretended to be calm and said, “Isla, there are no outsiders between us now. What’s wrong with holding hands? When we were having dinner and watching a movie, you also watched. There were so many couples holding hands, and… There were also people kissing in public!”
“They are a couple, and we are just friends. How can we be the same?”
“What do you mean? Your mother has agreed to our marriage, and she has even accepted the betrothal gifts. Besides, although we have not officially established a relationship, people with discerning eyes can see that we are a couple. Do you still think that we are just friends?”
“Don’t talk nonsense. I know you like me, haha…”
Alex laughed and encouraged himself. Not only did he not let go, but he also shook the hand of Isla.
Isla lowered her head and pondered for a moment. In the end, she compromised and let Alex hold her hand. She raised her other hand and stroked the hair beside her ear. In order to cover up the embarrassment, she quickly changed the topic. “Alex, where is the good news you just said?”
“Great news!” Alex replied, “Quinn is pregnant, and Felix is going to be a father!”
“Really? Why haven’t I heard of such a big wedding?”
“Felix and Quinn are not married yet, so they don’t have the nerve to talk about it everywhere. Felix talked to me today, and I urged them to get married. Maybe we can drink their wedding wine soon. Even if they get married, it will take some time. At that time, the company will have to work harder. By the way, let’s talk about a funny thing. Felix said that he wanted to wait for us to discuss it and hold a wedding ceremony on the same day. But he couldn’t control himself and let Quinn get pregnant…”
“Who wants to hold a ceremony with you? Did I promise to marry you?”
“Ahem… I’m just discussing it with you.”
It was already past eleven o’clock when Alex took Isla to walk around the villa area and turned to the door of Isla’s villa. It was time to say goodbye. Alex, who was reluctant to part with Isla, suddenly felt hot in his mind and pulled Isla into his arms. Just as he was about to kiss Isla to say goodbye, his cell phone suddenly rang.
Isla was a little confused by Alex’s sudden action, but she was awakened by the ringing of her mobile phone and quickly broke free.
Alex had no choice but to take out his mobile phone. When he saw that it was Felix calling, he couldn’t help but not scold her. He picked up the phone and said, “Hello, Felix, why are you still awake so late?”
Felix’s excited voice came from the other end of the phone. “No. Brother Alex, I just discussed it with Quinn and planned to go back to my hometown on Saturday, the day after tomorrow. Speaking of which, I’m very ashamed. I have been in love with Quinn for many years, and I have never visited her parents. In addition, I plan to take this opportunity to tell her parents about Quinn’s pregnancy.”
“This is a good thing. I support it!”
“I heard Quinn say that her father is very proud. If I go alone, it seems that I can’t support the situation. You should know that it is not a glorious thing to be pregnant in the countryside before marriage. If her parents vent their anger on me and don’t agree to our marriage, it will be troublesome. Brother Alex, can you send a few brothers to accompany me? You’d better lend me another car so that I can show my strength to her parents, haha.”
“I see… I’ll go with you and drive my car, and Brother Yuan’s car, too!”
“That’s great! Brother Alex, that’s a deal!”
“Don’t worry, can I let go of your pigeon? Go to bed early. You have to take good care of Quinn!”
Alex hung up the phone, winked at Isla who had not yet entered the room, and said, “Shall we continue?”
“Continue you big head ghost!” Isla rolled his eyes at Alex and said, “What’s wrong with Felix?”
“Yes. He’s going to accompany Quinn to his hometown in the countryside on Saturday. I’ll take a group of brothers to help him keep the scene in check.”
“What are you going to do?”
“If you can go, why can’t I? Is my Maserati leader lower than your Lamborghini? That’s settled!”
“Okay, okay, okay, let’s go!”
Alex thought about it. Too many things had happened recently, and everyone was very busy. Taking the opportunity to visit the future father-in-law of Felix, they took their brothers to the countryside to relax, and at the same time, they were instantly touched by the joy of Felix and Quinn, which was undoubtedly a good way to relieve the pressure.
It was Saturday. Before eight o’clock in the morning, Felix was ready. He took Quinn to Alex’s villa, then drove out alone and bought a lot of breakfast. In the following ten minutes, Isla, Felix, Ma Zhiyuan, Hunter, and Xiong Da arrived one after another.
Together with the leading role, Felix and Quinn, there were a total of eight people. It could be said that they had a large number of people and were very powerful.
Their car was even more overbearing.
One Lamborghini, one Maserati, and two Mercedes. The total price of the four cars exceeded 12 million!
After everyone finished eating breakfast, Felix got up first, looked around, and said loudly, “Brothers, this time, for my personal affairs, we have worked so hard. Here, I will first thank you on behalf of Quinn and me. After I come back, I will treat you to wine. It will take three hours to go to Quinn’s hometown, which is more than 200 kilometers away from the countryside. In order to save time, I will fill up all the cars with oil first, and then buy some red beef bread and so on. I will try to make sure that people on the road will not rest and catch up with lunch.”
Alex also stood up and said with a smile, “Felix, everyone here is on our side. Don’t be so polite. I see that everyone has almost finished eating. If everything is ready, let’s go now. Felix leads the way ahead, followed by Isla and I. Brother Yuan is in charge of the rear of the hall. By the way, Brother Big Ken, please arrange a walkie-talkie for each car to communicate on the way.”
After that, everyone took action.
At half past eight, four cars officially set off.
Since they were well prepared, there was no delay on the way. Before 12 o’clock, they arrived at Quinn’s hometown. With the support of Alex and other luxury cars, the marriage proposal of Felix was successfully completed. Even the pregnancy of Quinn before marriage was understood by the two elders.
That night, Felix found a stable in the village and arranged for his brothers to stay.
The next day, Quinn took everyone around the village and went home for lunch at noon. During the meal, as the leader of Felix and Quinn, Alex temporarily exchanged a corner with the matchmaker and communicated with the parents of Quinn in a friendly way, roughly arranging the marriage between Felix and Quinn. The reason why the formal decision was made was that the parents of Felix and Quinn had to meet.
There were many rules in the countryside. Even if it was just a formality, there should be a lot of procedures.
After the business was done, the purpose of relaxing had been achieved.
At three o’clock in the afternoon, Alex set off to return.
On the way, the people in a good mood, driven by Alex, joked through the walkie-talkie. Ma Zhiyuan’s voice suddenly became nervous. “Be careful, there is a black domestic off-road vehicle behind us, which is very suspicious. It may be coming for us. Be alert!”
Hearing this, Alex suddenly became nervous. Just as he wanted to ask what was going on, Felix’s voice came from the walkie-talkie. “Brothers, the road ahead seems to be blocked!”
“Stop the car! Stop the car inside!”
Hearing this, Alex suddenly had an ominous premonition and gave the order to stop the car without hesitation. The reason why he emphasized stopping the car from the inside was that this was a narrow mountain road. If there was an emergency, the car parked outside would take the risk of being knocked into the ravine. If he parked the car from the inside, he would at most be knocked over, and the danger would be lower.
When the car stopped, Alex and Big Ken immediately got out of the car. Sure enough, they found a domestic car parked horizontally on the road. The distance between the two sides was less than one meter, so it was impossible to bypass it. Then, the off-road vehicle behind them also stepped sideways and stopped on the road, blocking their retreat route.
Based on the current situation, one could easily guess that the other party came with ill intentions!
Alex quickly ran out of the Maserati’s driver’s seat and said nervously to Isla, “Lock up the doors and windows. No matter what happens later, don’t get off the car! Remember, don’t get off the car!”
