Chapter 153: The Outcome of the Investigation
Lu Xingzhi was in a great mood. He simply sat there and listened as the elderly instructor began with his nagging again. Occasionally, he received an ambiguous smile from the instructor.
Meanwhile, at the university, Jiang Yao stopped talking to Lu Xingzhi after reading his reply. Instead, she took her laundry to the balcony and did her laundry while keeping Wen Xuehui company.
Although Wen Xuehui was the apple of her parents’ eyes, she was a very independent girl, unlike the other rich girls who were spoiled rotten due to their well-to-do background. The Wen family had servants at home and Wen Xuehui’s house was not far from the campus, but she always did her laundry at the dorm and hardly ever brought it home for the servants to wash.
At the Zhang family home, Zhang Xiqing snorted in disdain after learning the results from her mother’s investigation, “I was wondering how great of a person Jiang Yao’s husband must be, but he even had to borrow a car to pick her up! So tacky!”
“Your dad invited the university leaders for dinner tonight. Don’t worry, my baby, you’ll eventually be the freshman representative!” Mrs. Zhang hugged her daughter dotingly. “Xiqing, lowly people like Jiang Yao are not worth your fury. Remember, you are the only child of the Zhang family, you are the blessed girl of heaven, how could a village girl coming out of nowhere compare to you? Hmph! What did she do—she saved a man, so what? Only mundane commoners will try to please others by all means. Our precious daughter, you are blessed to be pampered and adored by others!”
“Mom, can you find out who Jiang Yao’s husband is?” Zhang Xiqing’s eyes sparkled excitedly when she heard that there was a possible change in the selection of the freshman representative. She plunged into her mother’s embrace and smiled coyly. “Mommy, I know Daddy and you love me the most.”
“There are so many people in Nanjiang City. We can’t see his face in the photo and it’s very hard to find a person without a name. If you’re really curious, I’ll ask that kid from the Qi family. I’m sure her husband is from an ignoble background. Huh, if he even has to borrow a car, it’s not worth the effort to investigate him.”
The sports car in the photo belonged to the Qi family. Mrs. Zhang believed that she could figure out the identity of Jiang Yao’s husband by asking the son of the Qi family. Nonetheless, she didn’t take him seriously. She knew almost all of the young male offspring of the upper-class circle in Nanjiang City, but she didn’t know such a person. For a man who didn’t even own a car, Mrs. Zhang assumed that Jiang Yao’s husband was a non-influential friend or subordinate of Young Master Qi. He had probably managed to borrow a car from Young Master Qi simply because of a slightly close friendship with him.
Zhang Xiqing agreed with her mother’s remarks. She grew up in Nanjiang City and she knew all the rich people here. It was impossible that there would be no news about this man in the upper-class circle if he was such a significant character.
Hence, Zhang Xiqing was certain that Jiang Yao and her husband were nothing but a pair of pretentious snobs.
After taking a second glance at the car in the photo, Zhang Xiqing asked for Qi Xiang’s number from her mother. She went back to her room and dialed his number.
Although the Qi family and the Zhang family were not business partners or even related, they belonged in the same social circle and they were always interacting with each other. Nevertheless, when Qi Xiang, who was having fun with friends in the bar, received Zhang Xiqing’s call, he raised his eyebrows curiously.
“Oh, my, Miss Zhang, why did you call me all of a sudden? I’m honored. Will wonders ever cease?” Qi Xiang teased a woman beside him while talking on the phone. The woman’s coy giggles made him laughed flirtatiously, completely ignoring Zhang Xiqing who was listening on over the phone.
