Rebirth to a Military Marriage: Good Morning Chief
577 Shi Qing Had No Hopes
As a parent, knowing that his son was injured and yet he did not rest but gave a call to someone else's daughter to reassure her that he was alright, one would definitely not feel happy about it.
People like Zhai Yaohui would surely be angry and jealous.
"What! Injured? Is it really not serious? You mustn't lie to me. No, I have to see for myself!" Miao Jing jumped to conclusions from insignificant evidence. As soon as she knew that her son was injured, even though it was not serious, she had to see it herself to be assured.
"Alright." Zhai Yaohui gave Miao Jing a strong pull. "He has taken the medicine and there are people waiting on him. Rest assured. It is really a minor injury. He will probably heal much quicker than his previous injuries. There is no need for you to visit him. He has someone to look after him. Today, Qiao Nan took a ride with Shi Qing and returned to the camp. She specially brought a chicken for your son and taught the chef to cook shredded chicken porridge. If you are there, do you know all this?"
Miao Jing's parents were farmers. She was able to cook simple meals, but she did not know how to prepare difficult dishes.
When Miao Jing was young, they would only get to eat chicken during festivals. It would be too wasteful to use the chicken to prepare shredded chicken porridge.
Therefore, shredded chicken porridge was Miao Jing's Achilles heels.
"I may not know but I can learn! As long as Zhai Sheng likes to eat it, I will learn how to make it. I will definitely learn. In the future, I will also learn to cook whatever dishes that Hua Hua likes." She did not take good care of her children when they were young. She must make up for it now!
"They are not by your side. I am the only one by your side now. You should prepare the dishes that I love!" Zhai Yaohui was upset. His father had someone to take care of him in the countryside. They were a family of four. Miao Jing knew to take care of her children, but why was it that she did not care for him?
"Even if you prepare dishes that they like, they are not able to have them. It will be a waste of food. It's more realistic to cook what I love."
"Zhai Sheng is already back in the army. I can get someone to send the food to him!" Miao Jing was not convinced.
Ever since she had sorted out her thoughts, Miao Jing found joy in bickering with Zhai Yaohui. It was as if she had been too easygoing for the past twenty years. She had to show him that she had a temper as well.
Zhai Yaohui snorted. "It's summer now. Are you sure by the time the food that you prepare is sent to the army, Zhai Sheng will not have the runs when he eats them?"
"Then, I will wait until he is back at home to prepare the dishes for him." Miao Jing was rendered speechless. "But then again, Nan Nan is indeed a good child. She specially prepared the chicken for Zhai Sheng. I have long said that Nan Nan is a good girl."
"Good, of course, she is good!" She was so good that your son had eyes only for her. If she was not good enough, would your son have taken a fancy to her?
"It's rare for you to say something pleasing to the ears." Miao Jing felt happy and there was a smile on her face. It was equally rare for her to smile at Zhai Yaohui. But her expression changed instantaneously. "Let me warn you. I know that the Qiu family must have known that Zhai Sheng is injured. Since Zhai Sheng is injured, he should rest. He does not like Qiu Chenxi, and he doesn't like to deal with the people from the Qiu family. If you dare to allow them to disturb Zhai Sheng, I will not let you off!"
Miao Jing directed her anger at Zhai Yaohui at the mention of the Qiu family. She warned him to watch his behavior.
"That was already ages ago. Aren't you tired of bringing it up time and again?"
"I don't care if it has been ages ago. I am afraid that someone will forget about it without my reminder." Could he easily let go of the feelings that he had for his old lover?
Miao Jing had her Achilles heel and so did Zhai Yaohui. Zhai Yaohui was defenseless at the mention of the Qiu family.
Zhai Yaohui massaged his temples. "Alright, must you harp on this? Okay, say no more, will that do?"
Miao Jing snorted and pulled a long face. There was a look of hurt in her eyes. If Zhai Yaohui really did not care about Qi Minlan, why would he have such a big reaction at the mention of her? To put it bluntly, the woman who Zhai Yaohui was most concerned about was still Qi Minlan.
No wonder Qi Minlan was so smug. She had reasons to be happy.
Even though she was married to Zhai Yaohui, his heart belonged to Qi Minlan.
Miao Jing felt that theirs was a hopeless marriage.
Miao Jing felt hopeless, but Qi Minlan was in a worse state than her!
"Are you saying that the people in the camp drove you out? And your uncle didn't help you?" Qi Minlan ground her teeth in fury and hurled the cup that she had with her.
How could this be!
It was fine in the past.
Brother Zhai had said that Chenxi was a well-behaved child and she was a good match for Zhai Sheng. They were childhood sweethearts and their relationship was built on a strong foundation. It would be good if they could marry each other.
She was all ready to be the relative of Chief Zhai, yet someone threw a wrench in the works and the people from the Zhai family changed their attitude completely.
Because of her, she knew that Miao Jing, that vixen, would never truly like Chenxi. But how could Brother Zhai change overnight? It was just like what happened back then. One minute, she was Brother Zhai's girlfriend, and the next minute, Miao Jing turned out to be the one that he was going to marry!
People used to say that women were capricious, but men were the ones who were fickle-minded!
"Help me?" Qiu Chenxi sneered. "Do you know who the first person who pulled me away was? It was Shi Qing! Didn't she leave with Qiao Nan yesterday? Why was she back at the camp today? That's it! It must be because Shi Qing hasn't gotten over Brother Zhai and as she knows that Brother Zhai and I are having some problems, she intends to avail herself of the opportunity to come in between us. Since she pulled me away, she must have the same intention as me. She wants to stay by Brother Zhai's side while he is injured and take care of him. She is downright shameless and despicable!"
"Don't be angry. You can rest assured that Shi Qing can never marry Zhai Sheng." Qi Minlan took a deep breath, trying to calm herself down.
"Why, why are you so certain?" Qiu Chenxi refused to believe her words. Since Shi Qing had liked Brother Zhai for so many years, now was a good opportunity for Shi Qing to come in between them. How could Shi Qing give up at this time?
"Don't forget. Zhai Sheng has a girlfriend that he likes but can't go public. Besides, the most important thing is that your grandpa will never agree to the marriage between Shi Qing and Zhai Sheng. Shi Qing is the only child of the Shi family and your uncle is very obstinate. He refused to have a second child with your auntie. Your grandpa's thinking is outdated. He has already planned to take in a husband for Shi Qing. She can never marry into another family. I heard that your grandpa is already on the lookout for possible candidates for Shi Qing. Besides, given the Zhai family's status, even if Zhai Sheng breaks up with the vixen, do you think he will marry into the Shi family? That being said, it is impossible between Shi Qing and Zhai Sheng. You don't have to worry about her."
"Mom, are you sure?" Qiu Chenxi's eyes lit up. There was a look of joy on her face.
