Jiang Shuwan could not maintain the smile on her face anymore. She pulled Zhong Qianqian into a room and asked anxiously, “Why is Aiden not here yet? What’s going on with you two?”
There was no one else in the room. Zhong Qianqian’s tears started streaming down her cheeks. She ran into Jiang Shuwan’s arms while sobbing. “Mom, I’m so sad! Why can Zhong Nuannuan live so happily and enjoy people’s envious gazes while I can only stand beside her and be used as a negative example? I’m dad’s daughter too! How can she just come back and snatch away everything that belongs to me? Chi Yang should have been mine!”
“Why are you talking about Chi Yang? What about Aiden? Didn’t you tell me that Aiden is going to wear a maroon suit to the banquet so that he could match your gown?”
“He’s not answering my calls! I called him a few more times, but he turned off his phone. He’s definitely not coming! He was just lying to me!”
Jiang Shuwan’s heart was breaking from Zhong Qianqian’s cries. She patted her daughter’s back while comforting her, “My darling Qianqian, don’t cry. If you mess up your makeup, you won’t look beautiful anymore. It’s fine! It’s totally fine! If things don’t work out with Aiden, you can always go after Chi Yang again.”
“Zhong Nuannuan and Chi Yang are already so close to each other. How do I get between them? I’m just like a buffoon who performs silly antics.”
“Don’t worry. As long as you want him, he’ll definitely be yours. If Zhong Nuannuan dares to become your obstacle, I’ll think of ways to make her disappear. Qianqian, no one in this world can wrong you.”
“Mom.” Zhong Qianqian knew that her mom was just saying those words to make her feel better. She knew that she had no concrete plans.
Suddenly, someone knocked on the door.
Jiang Shuwan was startled. “Who is it?”
“Madam, someone’s looking for you. He said that his last name is Gu.” The butler’s voice sounded from outside the door.
“Gu? What’s his full name?” Jiang Shuwan asked impatiently.
“He didn’t say. He had no invitation card, so security didn’t let him in.”
“Got it,” Jiang Shuwan answered before saying to Zhong Qianqian, “Qianqian, go and clean up your eyes. I’ll ask someone to help fix your makeup. Hurry. I’ll go and take a look outside. Remember, men will always like white swans with class and confidence. You can’t let that country bumpkin, Zhong Nuannuan, destroy your confidence.
Years ago, Pu Yu was a lot prettier than me. Your father’s soul would leave his body the moment he laid eyes on her. But look at how things are now. Is she the one standing next to your father? Do you think I got my success today from my looks and body?”
“Why did you, commander-in-chief, and chief of staff come here in your uniforms?”
“We have to go to the administrative office for a meeting later.”
“Ah.” Zhong Nuannuan’s eyes were filled with disappointment. “You’re leaving so soon?”
Even though she knew that she had to endure loneliness as an army wife, but it was still difficult to chase away the disappointment in her heart.
Looking at the disappointment in Zhong Nuannuan’s eyes, Chi Yang felt glee in his heart.
“Are you disappointed because you’re reluctant to let me go?” Chi Yang asked.
“Of course!” Zhong Nuannuan answered without thinking. “I haven’t seen you in a week. This was our chance to spend the weekend together”
Chi Yang felt like his heart was being held by someone. Even though his heart was squeezed tight, he felt safe.
