Chapter 329: The Trivial Matters of the Ge Family
Jiang Yao could only nod, although she was concerned about them, she really could not do anything about it.
However, she remembered how worried Liang Yueze was about Old General Liang’s flu after mentioning it that day. Now, the Liang family was a mess, Liang Yueze and Luo Ruoran must be feeling blue to say the least.
Lu Xingzhi tapped Jiang Yao’s shoulder. “Go and take a bath first. I’ll go to the kitchen and stir-fry some vegetables.”
“I’ll take a bath before I sleep!” Jiang Yao shook her head right away. She stuck her tongue out and pulled a face at Lu Xingzhi. “Let me admire the dignified Lu Xingzhi’s beautiful cooking posture.”
Jiang Yao was considered to have set herself free in front of Lu Xingzhi. She dared to say or do anything, and she was also considered confident in teasing her own husband.
If it were not her but other people, they would have been kicked ten thousand miles away by Lu Xingzhi. However, since she was his own wife, Lu Xingzhi chuckled and nodded in agreement.
He had already picked out the vegetables and soaked them in water before he went out. After entering the kitchen, he only needed to scoop them up before putting them in the pan.
“We should send some dishes over to Sergeant Ge at night, right?” Previously, Lu Xingzhi would conveniently bring back two more packs of food from the cafeteria. However, they were cooking dinner tonight so they certainly should send some to them.
The reason Jiang Yao mentioned this proactively was because she had her own intentions. She was afraid that Lu Xingzhi would want to invite Sergeant Ge and Ge Wenwen over for dinner together.
Jiang Yao was annoyed every time she saw Ge Wenwen. She was afraid that she would turn the house upside-down, and she would need to watch Ge Wenwen eat like a bear.
“Mhm.” Lu Xingzhi nodded. “I’ll let Sergeant Ge call home to ask Mrs. Ge to come back to the platoon in two days’ time.”
“How about Sergeant Ge’s mother? Mrs. Ge has gone back to her hometown, Sergeant Ge’s mother knows that her son was injured but nobody is here to take care of him. Why didn’t she come and lend a hand?” Jiang Yao was confused about this. Logically, Sergeant Ge’s mother should come to the platoon and have a look at her son and granddaughter as nobody was looking after them since Mrs. Ge went back to her hometown.
In other words, under normal circumstances, Sergeant Ge was injured and Mrs. Ge had to take care of Sergeant Ge. Sergeant Ge’s mother should come to the platoon and take care of her granddaughter, Ge Wenwen. It was not like she did not have a place to stay, an old woman could certainly fit in a house with two bedrooms.
“It doesn’t make any difference with or without Sergeant Ge’s mother.” Lu Xingzhi shook his head and turned around to pinch Jiang Yao’s nose. “Not everyone has parents who know how to give their children love and care like ours. Sergeant Ge is rather deadpan and he is not good with words. He has many younger brothers and sisters who are sweet talkers so his parents adore them more. Initially, he had no choice but to come to the platoon for a job. Ge Wenwen’s grandmother has never paid attention to this granddaughter as she is very conservative and values boys more than girls.”
Lu Xingzhi was feeling very helpless. “When Sergeant Ge was injured, the platoon made a call to the Ge family and allowed Sergeant Ge’s mother to come and visit him. However, Sergeant Ge’s mother only asked whether he was dead or alive. She would not come if it were not a big matter as she said that she needed to farm the land back at home besides taking care of her other grandsons and granddaughters.”
Jiang Yao did not continue asking. No wonder Sergeant Ge seemed rather deadpan. His original personality was already rather stuffy, but he had parents, a wife and a daughter like that, his personality would certainly become more and more deadpan.
Lu Xingzhi was not the kind of person who liked to gossip about others’ family matters, but Sergeant Ge’s case was special. The reason why he said so much to Jiang Yao was because he wanted to let Jiang Yao understand the reason behind him taking special care of him.
