Han Feng's yell startled Han Jie. She immediately looked to where her father was standing and found that his face was red with anger while looking at her.
His hand was on the wall like he was depending on it for support, while the other was on his chest.
"Father! What's wrong? Are you alright?!" Han Jie runs toward him with worry. Her father was well dressed as usual and behind him were his bodyguards. He was wearing his usual pair of dress shoes and a tuxedo, Han Jie noted to herself.
"You are going to be the death of me!" Han Feng hissed as he calmed himself down. He was feeling better as his daughter looked beautiful just like her mother. "Why do you need to color your hair?!" He added through clenched teeth as he tried to think of anything positive.
"Woooh! Not bad!" Han Jun commented behind Han Feng when he saw Han Jie's appearance. He was wearing formal attire and seemed to be joining the dinner as well. "Isn't this convenient? I hope I have a double too." He added jokingly.
"Hmph! Don't talk to me! Be thankful Snout is not here!" Han Jie snapped immediately at Han Jun who just whistled with both hands in the air.
Han Jie then looked at her father, "This is not the worse-"
"There is anything that could be worse than this?!" Han Feng cut her off, appalled.
His breathing was more relaxed now, and he was able to stand up properly without any support as his tall frame looked down on his daughter, waiting for her to drop another bomb.
Ignoring this, "Father! I was supposed to say that if the future husband could not accept Mei Mei like this alone, what do you think will happen to my sister at her worst?" Han Jie declared with arms crossed over her chest.
Han Jie was proud of herself for thinking this earlier. In truth, she had prepared something worse for later but no need to mention that to her father.
Then she added, sounding stubborn, "I agreed to pretend to be my sister for tonight. However, I also want to test the man and make sure that he will take care of my sister!"
"Do you not trust me that I will choose the best husbands for both of you?" Han Fen asked amusingly. He silently agreed to her daughter but he was also a good judge of character. After all, a man like that who would personally deal with him before properly courting his daughter was some he prefered as a son-in-law.
Han Jie chuckled nervously. "Why did that sound like you already have a candidate husband for me?" Han Jie asked suspiciously as she followed her father towards the living room.
"Good evening, Master Han," Bai Min said bowing when he saw Han Feng. "Thank you for allowing me to stay here."
Han Feng waved his hand to Bai Min like Han Jie did not just ask him something , "Good evening Dr. Bai I hope all is well."
"Father! I was asking you something!" Han Jie reminded while discreetly giving a glare at Bai Min who hid his chuckle. She was standing behind her father like a brat asking for attention.
"The house will be fixed tomorrow, sir. I won't bother you guys by then…" Bai Min said respectfully.
In reality, it was Han Jie who was insisting him to stay and he did not need to after all. If he could afford to pay for expensive cleaning, then getting a hotel room of his own to avoid drama was easy. It was nerve-wracking to deal with Han Jie later if he refused to cooperate.
She was like a friend who would get jealous and complain about not being invited to a party. Then if a friend considerately replied, 'I know you are busy, so I did not bother you.' Han Jie would surely respond like this, 'You should invite me first so I can say no!'
"Doctor Bai, I hope that you did not hear anything tonight regarding our family affairs. You are our guest and personal doctor for the night, understood?" Han Feng said seriously from the sofa he was sitting. He was looking straight at Bai Min who could only nod in agreement.
"Good. Please watch out for any emergency. I don't want to have another accident as my daughter tends to have air inside her head." Han Feng commented as if his daughter was not there.
This made the others laugh. Han Jie felt like she was being bullied at that moment.
"Father! Don't ignore me!" She yelled.
Han Feng released a deep breath, "We will talk about that later. Wear your shoes so we can leave. The dinner will start in 30 minutes. The guests will not wait." Han Feng said as he stood up and walked first to go out of the room.
