The last time Luo Qiu returned to his hometown was due to Grandma Xiaochun’s critical illness. In the end, Grandma Xiaochun passed away without regret. Luo Qiu also knew something about his origin from Grandma Xiaochun.
His father – Luo Qi, was not blood-related to his grandfather but an adopted child.
Luo Qiu didn’t know whether his father had told anyone about him before death. He wasn’t even sure whether his father knew about his origin. But, this wouldn’t hinder his curiosity about his origin.
The people who adopted Luo Qi back then had now passed away. There were no clues left. Luo Qiu wanted to pursue the truth, but in the end, he could only rely on the altar’s magical intelligence-gathering capabilities.
The altar at the bottom of the club naturally did not let him down. It finally locked on the position of the person related to Luo Qi with blood. The location was in the South American continent – the country where the club descended to.
This wasn’t just a journey to find roots.
Still, Luo Qiu already recognized Village Luo as his root and his late father’s root very early on.
Unfortunately, the late father – Luo Qi, had never said anything about his life experience to his son Luo Qiu, which seemingly he had already decided in his heart.
With Luo Qiu’s emotions growing more indifferent, there was only one person in the world who still could touch his heartstrings. For the other blood relatives of the same clan, he did not see much kinship in it.
In his view, the formation of family affection was the accumulation of time.
The homeless people who wander on the streets did not know each other and had no blood relations. However, they had lived together for a long time, and it felt like a family. Why was it so?
Luo Qiu wanted to find out the truth. Why was his father, Luo Qi, abandoned? Was it due to the result of the circumstances?
The altar should be able to give Luo Qiu the answer in this regard.
But as a son, Luo Qiu still decided to find out this answer himself. In some matters, it was more of an obligation as a son rather than stubbornness.
Only when Luo Qiu could feel this sense of obligation did he feel the residual part of humanity remain in him.
You Ye naturally knew the purpose of the boss coming here. The maid did not have any hesitation and would support all the boss’ decisions. But once the club opened, it meant they were open for business.
In that case, neither she nor Luo Qiu, the boss, could control whether there would be walk-in business or not.
Although they could delay the Black Soul Messenger in handing over the investor card, the duo had no way to prevent or stop those lost customers from spontaneously walking into the club. It would meddle with the future.
As a club owner, Luo Qiu had the authority to suspend business, but he couldn’t suspend it indefinitely. There was a time limit in this authorization.
In this respect, it was similar to how employees had fixed annual leave each year, which could be redeemed at will within a year. Suspension of business was similar to a kind of holiday for the boss himself.
Luo Qiu didn’t want to exhaust the business suspension time limit to find the truth. So, after he decided on the new club address, the business resumed immediately.
It felt like a scam when the time of this relocation was counted within the business suspension time limit.
Altar once again said that it wasn’t easygoing.
But if the club itself was here, it could be moved around at will in this city and a large area nearby. Hence, it became much more convenient.
Who was willing to intentionally suspend business?
When all the items were appropriately arranged in the lobby, a storm suddenly came outside during the evening. For this seaport city, this was not a novelty. Moreover, it was summertime. The heat seemed to have subsided due to the rain.
Boss Luo opened the door and took a look. The buildings in this place were packed. With dark clouds in the sky and heavy rain pouring on the ground, it seemed like a gloomy place.
“It seems better to leave the shop tomorrow.” Luo Qiu looked back at You Ye.
Boss Luo didn’t like to travel on rainy days, even if the rain wouldn’t affect him in any way.
You Ye nodded when she heard the boss’s comment. Then, she began to fiddle with the old turntable in the corner and the vinyl disc in the cabinet. Vinyl discs required regular maintenance. Otherwise, it would be easy to wear and tear. Consequently, the sound quality would plummet.
“Master, do you want to put on some music?” You Ye took out an album.
Luo Qiu smiled, sat on a rocking chair by the window. He took out a local travel guide and read it.
The maid knew that this was the master’s signal to have her pick one. So she scanned the vinyl disc envelopes one by one and finally picked one out – jazz.
The singer was: Djavan.
The soft music sounded, and the exotic male voice made the rainy day seem less irritable. Luo Qiu thought for a while and said, “Let’s get some red wine and some cheese.”
When the maid was about to walk into the kitchen, the bell in the club lobby suddenly rang. Almost at the moment the bell rang, a figure in a sorry state rushed into the lobby.
She was drenched. On such a hot day, she exuded a sense of chill.
The boss put down the travel brochure that he read for a few pages. The maid stopped her actions and looked at the embarrassed intruder at the same time.
The intruder was panting anxiously. As soon as she came in, she quickly closed the door. Then, she leaned her body on the door and promptly assessed the club’s lobby.
It was a girl with a drenched body and long brown wavy hair. She was about eighteen years old. She was a caucasian, a more common race in this country. She should originate from Portuguese ancestry since the ethnic integration in this country.
She looked out anxiously as if worried about something approaching. Luo Qiu looked outside through the glass of the shop window. He saw several men with flashlights on the dark street, searching for something in the rain.
They found nothing, so they cursed while continuing the search.
But the wet girl found out strangely that the men outside didn’t seem to notice that she hid in this shop… This is pretty strange.
But no matter what, she did escape the danger. So, she looked at the only man and woman. After being slightly surprised, she showed a relaxed smile, blinked her eyes, and said, “Can you let me sit in this place for a while? Don’t worry. I will pay.”
