Nan Family

The two of them kept their distance.

Even though they were polite on the surface, they were inquiring about each other inside their heart. For Nan Hua, Long Qian Xing was just a stranger she met for the first time.

There was no interaction between him and the fake Nan Hua that was found by the Nan Family so fa based on the memory she digested. It didn't erase the possibility that some of the memory was missing, but Nan Hua knew that the possibility was low.

The car slowly stopped.

Nan Hua looked at the mansion that looked both familiar and unfamiliar. Familiar because this was the house where the former Nan Hua stayed for the past few months. Unfamiliar because this was the first time she actually came here.

"This is the Nan Family," Long Qian Xing reminded carefully.

"Thank you, Young Master Long. I'll be going now." Nan Hua nodded politely and get out of the car unhurriedly.

Watching the girl's movement, Long Qian Xing's eyes showed a thoughtful expression. He beckoned for Tian Lou to drive when he saw her entering the gate.

There was no need to stay here any longer.

"Young Master Long, are you not planning on telling her about your engagement?" Tian Lou asked carefully.

"What engagement? It's nothing more than our grandparents thinking of matching us together when we were young." Long Qian Xing glanced at Tian Lou. "She shouldn't remember things that happened when she's not even 2 years old."

Tian Lou was speechless but couldn't refute that.

Both the Long Family and Nan Family have good relationship on the surface, but few knew that they actually wanted to match their younger generation together.

Unfortunately, Nan Hua went missing when she was 4 to 5 years old.

They were all unfamiliar with each other and thus, the so called engagement talk couldn't go on. Anyway, in this era where their lifespan was extremely long, there was no need to hurry about this kind of matter.

"Drive."

"Yes… Wait, when did I become your driver?"

"You volunteer yourself when you lose that bet."

Tian Lou: "…" he can't refute that.

Tian Lou could only sadly drive Long Qian Xing back to Long Family Residence.

While the car drove away, Nan Hua walked on the steps and then stopped in front of the luxurious door. Just from looking at it, she knew that these were all expensive materials that was not easy to find.

The Nan Family was indeed very influential.

Slowly, Nan Hua pushed the door open and entered. The living room was decorated in warm color and looked warm and nice. However, Nan Hua knew from the memory that after Nan Hua returned, she had never been accepted.

From suspicion to disappointment, these were the attitudes of the people who were supposed to be her closest family member.

"What are you doing here?" a woman's voice could be heard.

Nan Hua raised her head and saw a middle aged woman dressed in suit stood in front of her. The woman had a sharp expression and strong aura as if telling others that no one was allowed to mess around with her.

Her black hair and countenance was quite different from Nan Hua, but if one paid close attention, they would be able to see some similarities. It was just that these similarities were very faint.

"Mrs. Nan," Nan Hua called out softly, her stance was low and looked weak.

Mrs. Nan frowned when she looked at this daughter of hers. Ever since Nan Hua was brought home after several weeks of verification and identification, she had never felt close to this kind of daughter.

She was so weak and unsightly.

"Why are you not staying in the hospital obediently and insist on running home? Are you thinking it's not enough for you to mess around and fail your exams but want to mess around with your health? Do you think it's not difficult enough for us when you continue to make troubles?"

Nan Hua listened obediently with her head lowered, but only she knew that the words from Mrs. Nan entered her right ear and flew out of her left ear.

"You're now part of Nan Family, so stop lowering your head like a coward. If you can't even make sure that you are suitable to be part of Nan Family, don't think that I'll allow you to get out of here with that kind of attitude. If you don't want to stay in the hospital, go to your room and don't make trouble!"
