Rebirth to a Military Marriage: Good Morning Chief
791 Not Too Positive
Shi Qing quickly came to her senses about the identity of the caller. "Why did you…" Call only after such a long time? It had been five days since the incident.
Given the time, Shi Qing had doubted countless times if this man loved or had ever loved Qiao Nan, and whether he had given up on Qiao Nan.
Zhu Baoguo sounded melancholic as he said, "I took the college entrance examination in a different school from you all. In order not to feel nervous and to focus on the examination, I didn't watch the news or read the newspapers during those three days. On the afternoon of the seventh, I left for my dad's camp immediately…"
He hoped that he could become stronger as soon as possible so that he would have the ability to protect Xiao Qiao.
Unexpectedly, the more he cared about something, the more easily he made mistakes.
He wished to have the strength and power to prove to Xiao Qiao that he was not only a mature man but also someone who knew his own feelings. In addition, he was someone capable of giving her happiness.
Who would have known that each time Xiao Qiao met with difficulty or encountered serious trouble, he was never by her side to protect her and not let her suffer any harm.
Even Zhu Baoguo could not figure out why the reality was always against his wishes.
"No wonder…" It was no wonder that Zhu Baoguo had not responded for so many days since the incident. He did not even appear at all and only phoned her now. "What are your thoughts now? I've already told you that Qiao Nan is in a romantic relationship long ago, right? Qiao Nan's boyfriend is great. Whenever Qiao Nan needs help, he will always appear by her side. Given your situation now, how are you going to compete with him?"
Zhu Baoguo was not as good looking as Brother Zhai. His status was also lower than that of Brother Zhai. Even in terms of protecting and caring for Qiao Nan, Zhu Baoguo was not qualified to compete with Brother Zhai.
Sigh. From her perspective, Zhu Baoguo should just give up.
Qiao Nan was a good person. Precisely because Qiao Nan was good, she deserved a better man who could treat her well.
Zhu Baoguo was too young and green and could not achieve this.
"How do you know that I won't be his match before I even try? Unless Xiao Qiao is married to that man, I still have a chance!" Zhu Baoguo was stubborn and unwilling to give up.
Shi Qing turned away such that she had her back facing Zhai Sheng. "As you wish. This is your problem and it's up to you. I'm telling you this because we are deskmates after all. I won't interfere in what you want to do."
"Alright. I have a guest in my house and it's not convenient for me to chat too much with you. I'll hang up first."
"Wait, I wish to know how Xiao Qiao is doing now. I called the house of the Qiao family but no one picked up the phone. Is Xiao Qiao alright?" During the day of the college entrance examination, there was a huge traffic jam. Moreover, her mother was also hospitalized due to a car accident that happened in front of Ping Cheng High School.
At the thought of this matter alone, Zhu Baoguo felt that it must have been a truly miserable and tough day for Qiao Nan.
"How should I say this? Someone wants to deal with Qiao Nan, so Qiao Nan has been staying at my house recently. She's preparing lunch for her parents in the kitchen now. After Qiao Nan's mother is hospitalized, Qiao Zijin ran away after appearing once. Uncle Qiao has been taking care of Qiao Nan's mother all this while. You should understand."
"I know…" Qiao Zijin. So, it was Qiao Zijin and Ding Jiayi again!
"Okay, I'm hanging up." If she did not do so soon, she would become dead first because of Brother Zhai.
After hanging up the phone, Shi Qing felt extremely guilty. She looked at Zhai Sheng, who was glancing coldly at her, and simply laughed continuously in a silly manner. She laughed until her face and mouth turned stiff.
Fortunately, Qiao Nan brought out the rice and dishes at this moment. "Quick. Have them while they are hot. I've already packed my parents' shares. After we finish our meal, Brother Zhai will send me to the hospital. Shi Qing, you can have a day off today."
"That's good. It's so hot today. I really don't feel like going out." The weather was hot enough. She would die from heatstroke if she remained a light bulb.
The three of them were quick in having their meals and finished in five minutes.
"Alright. Both of you, go ahead. I'll clean up the things on the table," Shi Qing said graciously.
"Right, I forgot to tell you that I have prepared one more lunch box. It's in the kitchen. Take it and send it to your dad." Who said that Shi Qing would have nothing to do if she did not send Qiao Nan to the hospital? It was a day off for her in that sense but it was only right for her to send meals to Director Shi. "Recently, your dad has been very tied up because of the incident that happened during the college entrance examination. He's definitely not going to take his meals on time. It's good that it's summer vacation now. You have more time to keep a watch on your dad."
"That's right. I'm going out then," Shi Qing replied. It was seldom that she had spare time. Of course, she had to care more about her biological father and 'conveniently' inquire about the progress of his investigation on Qiao Nan's matter.
After agreeing on the arrangements, Qiao Nan and Shi Qing went on their 'separate ways' and sent the meals to their respective fathers.
"You're delivering the meals again?" The young nurse in the hospital was already familiar with Qiao Nan. At the sight of Qiao Nan, she recalled the latter's objective of coming to the hospital. "Actually, you don't need to worry. Your mom is starving now and her temper is not as bad as before. She will finish the porridge that you send. Do you wish to deliver them yourself today?"
It should be a form of happiness to watch her biological mother finish drinking the porridge that she had painstakingly prepared, no?
Qiao Nan did not know whether to laugh or cry. She was very grateful to the young nurse for her kindness. However, she really had no use for it. "My mom's health is not good. I'm afraid she will get angry when she sees me. She's willing to eat my porridge, but it doesn't mean that she's willing to see me. When her health is better, I'll visit her again."
She did not wish to receive an unreasonable scolding from her mother.
"That's fine too. I'll send them to her for you. Pass them to me. I believe this is yours?" The young nurse returned the lunch box that Qiao Dongliang had sent down to Qiao Nan. "You are so well prepared. There are two lunch boxes?"
"Yes." Qiao Nan did not explain further. These two lunch boxes were purchased when her father was hospitalized due to a car accident two years ago.
At the thought that she died due to a car accident and both her parents encountered car accidents as well, she realized that only Qiao Zijin had not met with such a situation among their family of four.
"Sorry to trouble you today. Thank you. Bye." Qiao Nan was very polite in her manners. She then left with Zhai Sheng.
The young nurse held her chin. "Wow, that man is so dashing. Could it be her elder brother or something?" If that was the case, then she would have the chance to woo the handsome man?
The atmosphere was not bad when Zhai Sheng was with Qiao Nan. Besides those who knew Zhai Sheng, anyone who saw that emotionless and icy cold expression of Zhai Sheng at this juncture would have their romantic dreams dashed.
In comparison to Zhai Sheng and Qiao Nan, when Wei De and Zhai Hua were together, the difference was that the atmosphere on Wei De's side did not seem too positive.
