Chapter 328: The Liang Family’s Matter
“Alright, let’s mind our own businesses. We can’t control the way she does things. Let her do what she likes, let’s just turn a blind eye.” Mrs. Lin comforted Mrs. Zhu. She knew Mrs. Zhu was infuriated after having to chase Ge Wenwen at noon.
After comforting Mrs. Zhu, Mrs. Lin turned around and said to Jiang Yao, “By the way, didn’t you say you wanted to buy a few pots of Devil’s Ivy in the morning? Let’s go to the Flowers and Birds Market. I want to buy a few goldfishes for the little one at home. That little one is addicted to goldfishes recently. There is only one left alive in the whole fish tank, and he cried so pitifully last night.”
“Mrs. Lin, your son, Ah Wei, adores keeping these since he was young.” Mrs. Zhu laughed and said to Jiang Yao, “Don’t underestimate Mrs. Lin’s son, Ah Wei, for being only eight years old, that kid has been rearing quite a lot of animals since he was young. He rears cats and dogs in his grandmother’s house, he has even reared lizards and crickets before.”
“It’s good for young children to have their own hobbies. No matter what it is, as long as he has the patience for it.” Jiang Yao smiled.
Upon hearing Jiang Yao’s response, Mrs. Zhu opened her mouth but gulped the words back down immediately. Obviously, she did not know how to continue, as she thought that like her, Jiang Yao would think that the child was weird.
They were in Jin City till late in the afternoon. When Lu Xingzhi returned home and did not see Jiang Yao there, he made a call to Jiang Yao and found out that they were still outside waiting for a bus to return to the platoon. He drove there right away to pick them up.
“They say that Sergeant Lu loves his wife dearly, he’s obviously different from the high maintenance menfolk at our homes.” As they were sitting in Lu Xingzhi’s car on their way home, Mrs. Zhu was especially excited along the way. Lu Xingzhi’s car was spacious, clean and way more comfortable than the bus.
Although Mrs. Zhu was praising him, she was actually envious of Jiang Yao deep down. Even though she and her husband had a car and handphones, and he knew that she was waiting for the bus to return to the platoon, her husband would never drive just to pick her up after a busy day.
Downstairs, the three of them took their stuff and said a few words before going home respectively. Once Jiang Yao stepped into the house, she instantly smelled a pleasant aroma. After asking, she found out that Lu Xingzhi had stewed the slaughtered chicken before going out.
“Xingzhi, are you in a bad mood?” Jiang Yao noticed that Lu Xingzhi was moody along the way home.
Although his expression was usually indifferent, normal people could not see his emotions just by looking at his face. However, Jiang Yao still noticed that he was in a bad mood.
Lu Xingzhi did not expect Jiang Yao to be so keen in sensing his emotions. Therefore, after some thought, he no longer continued to hide it from her.
“Something happened to Yueze’s family.” He said, “I received a call from Weiqi just now, he said that Old General Liang was on the hijacked airliner which was out of touch. Moreover, there are a lot of high-ranked military officers from other countries on the airliner too. Everyone who attended the meeting with Old General Liang was on that airliner, except for someone who had food poisoning and missed the flight.”
That was not the most serious matter. “They initially wanted to hide this from Grandmother Liang but coincidentally she went out in the afternoon and heard this news from other people. She fainted right away and was sent to the hospital. Luckily, she was rescued in time, but she is still unconscious.”
Jiang Yao was stunned. No wonder Lu Xingzhi had the jitters. Lu Xingzhi must be worried about them since the Liang family was going through such a terrible mishap.
“What’s the situation now? Do we need to rush to Jindo City?” Jiang Yao asked.
“Not for the time being. Even if we do, we can’t do anything either. The Liang family is a mess right now, we will just add more trouble for them if we go. Let’s just wait and see.” Lu Xingzhi shook his head. “The leaders of each country have arranged certain departments to settle this emergency.”
