“Right? He’s a captain at 26. Even if he were to only rise one more rank in this lifetime, he would still be a major general! Zhong Nuannuan would then be the wife of a general!”
“He’s the director-general of the Department of Special Forces. One can achieve a meritorious deed and get accomplishments easily in the Department of Special Forces. It’s not possible for him to only rise one rank. When a man like him reaches his 40 or 50s, he would at least be a lieutenant general with the same rank as the commander-in-chief. If he shows an even better performance, he could be an admiral!”
“I’m so envious! If only my daughter could find me such an excellent son-in-law. It’s a shame that my daughter had not met him first.”
“Tch, it’s not like Chi Yang would be together with your daughter even if she had met him first. I heard that they first introduced Chi Yang to Zhong Qianqian, but with Zhong Nuannuan’s beauty, who would want to choose her over Zhong Nuannuan? Chi Yang didn’t even consider Zhong Qianqian. Do you think he would consider your daughter?”
“As the saying goes, ‘the dragon has nine sons and each of them is different from the other’. They are both Zhong Kuijun’s daughters, but Zhong Qianqian and Zhong Nuannuan are just so different from each other. Their looks alone prove it. Their future lives would also certainly be different.”
The madams did not notice that Zhong Qianqian was in their vicinity. Her face was awfully contorted after listening to them speak. The madams were gossipping about the Zhong family without a care in the world.
Zhong Nuannuan was standing with the commander-in-chief of the military base. She looked perfect from every angle. Zhong Qianqian still had to admit that her looks and body could never beat Zhong Nuannuan’s.
Zhong Qianqian’s jealous gaze could burn a hole in Zhong Nuannuan’s body.
How could this country bumpkin have such a nice temperament? It’s simply unscientific!
Zhong Qianqian took out her phone to call Aiden.
At this time, only Aiden could comfort her.
However, he did not pick up her call.
It had been two hours since he told her that he was getting dressed and preparing to leave his house. The banquet was starting, but he was not picking up his phone.
Zhong Qianqian felt like her heart had been sliced by a knife. She felt bitter about the situation. She called him again, but to no avail.
She ended up calling him five times in a row. Finally, the call went through. Zhong Qianqian’s heart was in her throat. She had been moody before, but she was excited now that she could talk to Aiden.
“Sorry, the number you have dialed is busy now. Please call again later. ”
The call that went thought suddenly became busy. Zhong Qianqian felt her heart tighten. She called back again immediately.
“Sorry, the number you dialed is unavailable. Sorry, the”
Zhong Qianqian lowered her phone from her ears. She felt as if her body had fallen into an ice cavern. At that moment, she felt like a joke.
It was Aiden, after all. How would he like her? He was a man who even international models and A-list Hollywood actresses could not have. How could she have won him ever? Even if Aiden liked her and wanted her to be his girlfriend, how long would this relationship last? With her lowly identity and ugly face, how could she have expected Aiden to marry her?
Zhong Nuannuan and Chi Yang were acting as if they had just been struck with cupid’s arrows.
The bright smile on Zhong Nuannuan’s face and Chi Yang’s gentle gaze were so unsightly to Zhong Qianqian.
