The Substitute Madam Amazes the World Once More - Chapter 504 - The Mysterious Army
Upon hearing Mo Zhu’s agreement, Chen Man was so happy that she could not close her mouth. She laughed loudly and held the girl’s hand. She then nagged for a long time for Mo Zhu to rest well and take care of her body before leaving.
After sending Chen Man off, she knew that Huo Xuan must be in the study at this time. She stood up and quickly walked two steps to knock on the study door.
Upon hearing the knock on the door, Huo Xuan called out indifferently.
Mo Zhu pushed the door open and walked in. She looked up at Huo Xuan, who was sitting by the desk, and said, “Auntie came to look for me just now.”
Seeing that the person who came was Mo Zhu, Huo Xuan looked at her gently and replied, “Yes, she came to look for you? What did she say?”
Mo Zhu lowered her eyes unnaturally and sat down on the chair by the table. Her fingers knocked on the table casually and she said, “She wants us to register our marriage and hold a wedding after I graduate.”
Upon hearing this, Huo Xuan nodded in understanding. His disapproving subordinate continued to sign documents. “You’re already in your twenties after graduating from university. At that time, these troublesome matters must have been more or less resolved. It’s suitable for us to register our marriage.”
When Mo Zhu heard this, she pursed her lips and said coldly, “Auntie means that we’ll register our marriage after I graduate from high school in two days…”
“What?” Just as the girl finished speaking, Huo Xuan looked up in surprise. He put down his pen and rubbed his palms slightly. “You agreed?”
Mo Zhu nodded. “It’s not a big deal. Of course I agreed.”

Seeing Huo Xuan’s troubled expression, Mo Zhu knocked on the table again and asked in a low voice, “Why? You don’t want to marry me? That’s good. You can reject Auntie and I won’t have to be the bad guy.”
Upon hearing Mo Zhu’s words, Huo Xuan knew that she had misunderstood him. He quickly stood up from the table and walked two steps to the girl’s side. He held Mo Zhu’s hand and comforted her softly, “It’s not that I’m unwilling, it’s just that we’ve just gotten engaged. My mother’s request was raised a little too quickly. I’m wondering if something happened.”
Following Huo Xuan’s actions, Mo Zhu pulled the man’s hand and lowered her eyes to touch the patterns on Huo Xuan’s palm. She explained lightly, “We’ll deal with whatever comes our way. If anything happens to the Huo family, we’ll be the first to know. Don’t worry, Auntie said that the reason why I have such thoughts is because the old master is worried about you.”
Upon hearing this, Huo Xuan relaxed his brows and heaved a long sigh of relief. “After Grandpa was poisoned the last time, his body is indeed getting worse by the day. He wants me to take over the Huo family for me while he’s still healthy.”
After pausing for a few seconds and seriously considering it for a while, Huo Xuan nodded. He looked at Mo Zhu gently and said, “Since you’ve already agreed to this, let’s do as my mother says. However, I’m sorry I did not give you what you deserve. The engagement is so rushed. I owe you a proposal ceremony for the marriage.”
After saying this, Mo Zhu was about to say something when Huo Xuan’s phone suddenly vibrated.
She looked up at the caller ID and saw that it was a call from Xu Huan. Afraid that he had something urgent to inform Huo Xuan, Mo Zhu smiled and signaled the man to pick up the call with her eyes.
Frowning slightly, Huo Xuan raised his hand and picked up the call.
Just as the call was picked up, Xu Huan’s anxious voice came from the other end. “Brother Huo, something’s wrong, something’s wrong!”
Seeing that Xu Huan only knew how to talk nonsense and didn’t get to the main point, Huo Xuan frowned coldly and shouted, “Get to the point!”
After pausing for a few seconds, Xu Huan coughed twice and added, “Brother Huo, that mysterious person and a mysterious army have appeared again!”
