She went to the supermarket and planned on making a hot pot for dinner. She never would have expected that she would receive a call from the housing agent, asking her to dinner.
Luo Qing Chen thought that it would be a raise in the rent or that another tenant wanted to move in, but she never would have imagined that she would tell her something that she never would have thought of.
“Miss Luo, I’m very sorry to invite you to dinner on such short notice.” The agent was a woman in her early thirties. They had met several times and she looked professional every time.
Luo Qing Chen didn’t care since she was living alone now, so if someone wanted to invite her to dinner, she didn’t mind.
“It doesn’t matter, I live alone.” Luo Qing Chen took care of some lamb meat as she said, “Did you invite me for a reason today? I was planning on giving you the rent for the next three months tomorrow.”
“No, no, no.” The agent shook her head before saying with a smile, “Miss Luo, you’re mistaken. I’m not here for rent……”
Luo Qing Chen knitted her brows as she revealed a confused look.
The agent quickly took out a stack of documents from her bag and put it on the table, “This is the deed and the information on the owner, the landlord asked me to take care of this three months ago.”
“Three months ago……” Luo Qing Chen was surprised. Her fingers couldn’t help trembling as she forgot to pick up the piece of lamb meat that she had been cooking.
“Yes.” The agent nodded politely, “Because miss Luo didn’t come herself, there were many things that became complicated. We had to take care of many things before finally sorting it out this afternoon.”
She opened the blue folder and the most striking thing was the three words: He Jin Nian.
“You……You meant that he bought the house?” Luo Qing Chen took a deep breath. She drank some water before calming herself down.
“It isn’t that……” The agent shook her head, “Mister He Jin Nian was already the owner of the house.”
Luo Qing Chen suddenly remembered the past.
It was no wonder she was able to get such a high end house for such a good price.
It was no wonder she could rent the house for so long without a tenant on the first floor.
It was no wonder He Jin Nian seemed so comfortable when he came to her house.
It turned out that the house belonged to him in the first place!
This news really shocked her. He had hid it for such a long time.
“Mister landlord never found another tenant for miss Luo because he thought that it would be inconvenient for you. He wanted to rent the whole place to you, but since the price was too low, he was afraid that you would be suspicious.”
There was a strange sadness in her heart, but with the extra things the agent said, it spread all over her heart.
“Do you know where he went?” Luo Qing Chen knew that it was impossible that she would know, but she still had some hope in her heart as she asked this.
“Aiyo, how could I know this!” The agent shook her head with an awkward smile, “But when we were looking for this information, we accidentally heard a few of his phone calls and he didn’t seem good. If I didn’t hear wrong, it seemed like he was talking about his parents’ funeral……"
