Rebirth to a Military Marriage: Good Morning Chief
322 I Was the Veteran
If he had known that Zhai Sheng would be here today, he would have never come.
"Wang Yang, are you interested in having a chat with me?" Zhai Sheng put down the cup of tea and looked at Wang Yang.
If Zhai Sheng was the embodiment of righteousness, Wang Yang would be the villain with a guilty conscience. Villains were most fearful of righteous soldiers like Zhai Sheng. At the very least, when Wang Yang was with Zhai Sheng, he could not help but feel guilty as if he had been up to no good.
"No, I am here to look for my brother!" Wang Yang immediately rejected when he heard that Zhai Sheng wanted to have a chat with him. "Brother, don't you like the army very much? Don't you have anything to ask Brother Zhai? Brother Zhai is very familiar with how it's like in the army. He knows as much as your dad."
That was right. Zhu Baoguo had no interest in studying. Initially, Grandpa and his uncle planned to send Zhu Baoguo to the army after he went to high school and was old enough for the army.
A soldier with no culture, no knowledge, and no education background would not have a promising future in the army. In the end, he would only be treated as someone who had brawns but no brains, and would be treated as cannon fodder.
Perhaps, if he tackled his problem from this area, he would be able to achieve his goal.
"Do you think it is appropriate if I ask someone else instead of my father?" Zhu Baoguo gave Wang Yang a fake smile.
His relationship with his father might be distant and they might not get along well with each other, but it was all in the past. Compared with Zhai Sheng who was an outsider, he was definitely closer to his father. If he had any questions, it would be more convenient for him to ask his father.
Zhu Baoguo refused to admit that he did not want to ask Zhai Sheng because he had an unexplainable feeling of being threatened and this awkwardness when he was around Zhai Sheng.
"Aren't you going to say anything?" The three men were engaged in their own conversation. Qiao Zijin tried several times to cut in and join them in their chat but was unsuccessful. She had planned to make use of this opportunity to get closer to the three of them so that Zhu Baoguo and Zhai Sheng would grow to favor her more than Qiao Nan.
Qiao Zijin was anxious that she had no other way to join in the conversation. She gave Qiao Nan a slight push, hoping that she would help her.
Qiao Nan moved slightly to the side and gave Qiao Zijin a disdainful look.
Since Qiao Zijin could not realize that she was no longer the Qiao Nan who would be submissive to her and accede to all her requests, she could not be bothered with Qiao Zijin.
She knew that if she helped Qiao Zijin strike up a conversation with Brother Zhai and Zhu Baoguo, Qiao Zijin would push her to the side once the three of them mingled well. Qiao Zijin might have a plan in mind, but she was not so foolish to be used and deceived by her.
"Sister, do you and Wang Yang have anything else to say? If not, perhaps you would like to make a move first?" Qiao Zijin and Wang Yang had already wasted one hour of their time. If they continued to stay at the house, there was no way that she and Zhu Baoguo could finish their homework.
"I do. Both of us have to go to school and we don't have time for each other. Moreover, Dad moved to this place for you. Look, in the past two months, there weren't many chances for both of us to see each other and have a good chat. Don't you miss me? It's rare that we have a chance to catch up with each other, so we must make use of this chance to clear any misunderstanding. Nan Nan, do you really not miss me at all? Do you know that I miss you dearly? Let's have a good chat. Should we chat in your room?" Qiao Zijin walked forward and grabbed Qiao Nan's hand, wanting to take a look at Qiao Nan's room.
Wang Yang grinned. Qiao Zijin had done well. She had not forgotten that before coming here, he had asked her to separate Zhu Baoguo and Qiao Nan.
However, with Zhai Sheng around, even if Qiao Nan was not by Zhu Baoguo's side, it would not be easy to rile up Zhu Baoguo.
He would have to find another time when Zhai Sheng was not at the quad to do that.
"No." Qiao Nan turned and slipped out of Qiao Zijin's grip. Qiao Nan was quick like a loach. Qiao Zijin could not catch hold of her. "I have nothing to hide from the rest, so just go ahead and say whatever you want. I don't mind."
"I'm sure it's nothing inappropriate."
"Do you mean it?" Qiao Zijin took a deep breath. No wonder her mother always chided Qiao Nan as a wretched girl. She was really shameless. "You've started having the menses for quite some time already. Is it painful? Are the days accurate? As a girl, you have to pay more attention to this aspect. Mom told me that if one does not take good care of oneself, it may be difficult for one to have children in the future."
As soon as Qiao Zijin said these words, everyone, including herself, flushed red in embarrassment.
Especially her last sentence that mentioned about Qiao Nan getting married and having children.
But this was what annoyed Qiao Nan the most. What did she mean by not taking good care of herself and that she might not be able to have children? Was she concerned about Qiao Nan or cursing Qiao Nan?
Qiao Nan took a deep breath and brushed at her bangs. "Thank you for your concern, but I am very healthy. Most importantly, I do not have the problem of dysmenorrhea. Speaking of which, Sister, you really have to pay more attention. I heard that having a cold uterus will result in dysmenorrhea. The cold uterus is considered an illness, and you have to cure it. Otherwise, one can't give birth to children as well."
Everyone felt awkward at the topic, especially when Qiao Nan brought up the specialized term 'cold uterus'. Qiao Zijin's face turned bright red as if she were a metallic pot that was about to explode from boiling water.
The five of them who were present knew what Qiao Nan was referring to.
Not only the boys but also Qiao Zijin, who was a girl, was reminded of the picture that she saw in the biology book. She knew which female organs Qiao Nan was referring to and how sensitive this topic was.
Qiao Zijin was so embarrassed that she was about to let off steam.
As the second youngest person among the five people present, Qiao Nan was proud that her words had such a big impact. She flung her ponytail. How dared Qiao Zijin start this topic. Qiao Zijin had no idea that she was the 'veteran' among the five of them.
Qiao Zijin was not the only one who knew how to talk about sensitive topics out of nowhere.
The five of them sat awkwardly in total silence.
In the end, Zhai Sheng shot a meaningful look at Qiao Nan and broke the silence. "Nan Nan, you seem to know a lot." Since Nan Nan had an interest in this kind of topic, could it be that she liked children very much?
If this was the case, then he could have a few more kids with Nan Nan in the future.
However, on second thought, the country's national planning policy promoted raising healthier and better-educated children. Although they could not have more children, they could make up for it through other means.
