Rebirth to a Military Marriage: Good Morning Chief
779 Would Not Relen
\"Ah?\" This time, it was the young nurse's turn to be dumbstruck. She suddenly laughed. \"I say, the two daughters from your family are both quite strange. It's fine that the younger daughter couldn't visit you at the hospital because she had to take the college entrance examination. Isn't your elder daughter studying in college? The funny thing is… when your elder daughter came to the hospital to enquire about your condition, she actually said that she's your neighbor's daughter and even addressed you as her auntie. Your family's situation is so complicated. Did you pass this elder daughter for adoption?\"
Otherwise, which daughter would address her own mother as auntie?
Wasn't that amusing?
After dumping these words that were as powerful as a bomb, the young nurse pushed the trolley and left after changing the drip for Ding Jiayi.
She left behind Ding Jiayi, who was filled with anxiety and seemingly struck by lightning, and Qiao Dongliang, who became even more silent as fumes of anger seemed to be building up in him.
After some time, Ding Jiayi then gave an unnatural smile. \"Maybe, maybe it's a misunderstanding, or maybe they have mistaken someone's identity.\" If the nurse was really referring to Zijin… If Zijin were to find out that she had met with a car accident, she would certainly feel very worried. How could she pass the medicine to someone else, asking them to bring it to her, and did not even leave her any messages? No, this was certainly not the case.
\"Since she was a child, Zijin has a good temper and a glib tongue. Would she address me as auntie in front of outsiders? What a joke. That nurse was talking nonsense. But she shouldn't do so about such things. She's too unethical.\"
Qiao Dongliang sneered. \"Really? I find it strange. If that young lady was not Qiao Zijin, then why would others say that she's our other elder daughter? This happened in such a short time. When Qiao Zijin appeared, coincidentally, it was around the time Nan Nan left.\"
\"Do you mean to say that when Zijin pretended to be my neighbor's child and addressed me as auntie, she coincidentally met Qiao Nan and was exposed by the latter? Impossible. It's absolutely impossible! Zijin is such a good child. Could she address me as her auntie? I don't believe this. I definitely won't believe this!\" Ding Jiayi frowned badly and refused to admit the truth.
Qiao Dongliang snorted softly. His eyes were full of disdain and mockery. \"What's the hurry? The nurse who came earlier has such a deep impression of this matter. If Zijin comes again next time, do you think she will be able to identify whether Zijin is the young lady that she was referring to today?\"
That was self-denial.
\"I don't believe this. Anyway, I won't believe this. I, I'm tired.\" Ding Jiayi covered herself with a blanket. She just wanted to cover her head and sleep to avoid the look in Qiao Dongliang's eyes and his interrogations.
She had been hospitalized for three days. Ding Jiayi was, in fact, happy that the first person that she saw when she opened her eyes was Qiao Dongliang.
It was just that when she gradually regained her consciousness, she had not fulfilled her wish to see Qiao Zijin, the second person that she wanted to see. Ding Jiayi thus felt uneasy at heart. She then tried to find various excuses for Qiao Zijin in front of Qiao Dongliang.
It was all excuses when she said that Qiao Zijin went traveling with her classmates.
Ding Jiayi was well aware that Qiao Zijin had returned to Ping Cheng as soon as the summer vacation started.
If Qiao Zijin had not returned to Ping Cheng and told her that the economy was bad, that she had to continue her studies but the money at home was really insufficient…
She also said that she happened to know someone who needed to buy a house. That person was willing to pay a high price to buy over their small courtyard in the quad. With this sum of money, the mother-daughter pair could have a more generous lifestyle for a longer period in the future.
After they finished spending the money, it was almost time for Qiao Zijin to graduate from school then. She could then work to earn money and support Ding Jiayi and herself.
Without these words of Qiao Zijin, Ding Jiayi would not have returned to Ping Cheng and passed by Ping Cheng High School.
In the absence of this premise, Ding Jiayi would not have met with a car accident.
At the moment she was knocked down by a car, Ding Jiayi really believed that she was going to die.
When she still had a little sense of consciousness, Ding Jiayi could feel that the ribs in her tummy were broken. Her chest felt so painful that she could not say a word. Once she opened her mouth, she vomited immediately instead of saying a word.
Until that moment, Ding Jiayi still did not blame Qiao Zijin for the car accident.
If Qiao Zijin really came to the hospital today, did not visit her, and even told others that she was her neighbor's daughter, Ding Jiayi felt consistent quavers in her heart. She really could not accept such an outcome.
Regardless of the excuses she made for Qiao Zijin, Ding Jiayi could not accept that the daughter she loved most did not come and visit her for the entire three days when she was fighting for her life. Then, when her daughter appeared, she claimed that she was not her daughter.
How could this be possible?
That young nurse must have been talking nonsense. She was weaving lies without a basis.
Right, that must be the case.
Didn't Old Qiao say that Qiao Nan, that wretched girl, had just left during that time?
Perhaps that wretched girl gave money to and bribed the nurse to deliberately tell such a lie to sow discord between Zijin and her.
It was fine that that wretched girl was mean. She did not expect the nurse in this hospital to be as unethical and did such a mean and shameless thing!
After a round of self-consolation, Ding Jiayi's anger eased a little and she gradually fell asleep.
Qiao Dongliang, who had been by Ding Jiayi's side and watching Ding Jiayi sleep with her head covered despite the hot weather, laughed mockingly before he turned and continued to sleep.
As expected by Qiao Dongliang, when Ding Jiayi woke up the next day, she had a body full of rashes due to the fact that she had covered herself for the entire night.
It was the summer period. The wards in the hospital only had fans. Unfortunately, Ding Jiayi was severely injured and had many bandages on her body. Especially for the first few days, they could not even wipe away her sweat. She could thus only endure the suffering.
Ding Jiayi had been covering herself last night and perspiring nonstop. It would be strange if she did not break out in rashes.
At the sight of Ding Jiayi, who was full of rashes on her face and head, Qiao Dongliang stared coldly by the side. He was not willing to bother much about her. She allowed Ding Jiayi to wail and complain that the rashes were itchy and painful. Qiao Dongliang refused to respond to Ding Jiayi or even console her.
Hearing Ding Jiayi wail, the nurse who was changing medication for Ding Jiayi also frowned. \"Can you stop shouting?\" If this continued, Ding Jiayi might hurt her own throat. \"Ask your loved one to prepare some Florida water and rashes powder. When your injuries and skin are better, they will be of some use.\"
Covering one's head to sleep during summertime and thus broke out in rashes—this was the first time the nurse heard such a joke. She had really widened her horizons.
Hearing what the nurse said, Ding Jiayi, who was wailing from time to time, cast glances at Qiao Dongliang. If Qiao Dongliang did not respond, she would wail louder. She had the intention to torture Qiao Dongliang into a reaction and agree to buy these items and take care of her.
However, this time, Qiao Dongliang seemed to have made up his mind firmly. He refused to soften his heart for Ding Jiayi at all.
