Chapter 427 - What Are You Smiling At?
Lu Xingzhi had to admit that it was a pretty foolish move by Weiqi’s mother. Not realizing that she was taken advantage of by a man; deceived by love her entire life and putting her son in peril as she was dying, how naïve could she be?
“Everything’s packed up, let’s go.” Lu Xingzhi had no interest whatsoever in the people downstairs; he knew what they were here for.
Seeing Lu Xingzhi ready with his luggage, Jiang Yao instinctively ran over. “You have barely recovered, I will take it.”
Lu Xingzhi looked at Jiang Yao. “After lying in bed for half a month, are you treating me like a disabled person?” His face turned the darkest of shades. With one hand carrying the luggage and the other hand holding Jiang Yao, he left the hospital.
Zhou Weiqi and Chen Xuyao were waiting for them outside the hospital. From the looks of it, they were extremely happy.
Zhou Weiqi was the driver, Chen Xuyao sat shotgun next to Zhou Weiqi while Lu Xingzhi and Jiang Yao sat in the backseat. The car left the hospital, heading toward a direction unknown to Jiang Yao.
“Where are we going?” Jiang Yao was excited looking at the view along the way. Her sights landed on a porridge stall, and with a sudden shudder, she looked at Zhou Weiqi.
“Brother Lu says that we are going to Kin City. You are staying there before returning to the platoon,” Zhou Weiqi explained. “Brother Lu has a nice villa over there. Kin City is away from all the hustle and bustle of the city, it’s quiet and perfect for some recuperation.”
“Oh.” Jiang Yao looked at Lu Xingzhi. She assumed they were going straight back to the platoon after leaving the hospital. He did not tell her that they would be staying in Jindo City for a little longer.
She stared at her shoes, remembering the driver’s license that was delivered to her by Zhou Weiqi a few days ago. He did not even ask when she learned how to drive a car.
The porridge stall was only a mere two hundred meters after a right turn out of the hospital. Jiang Yao remembered this stall, as Zhou Weiqi ordered takeaway once from here. The food was just so-so.
It was the day she did acupuncture for Grandmother Liang.
Jiang Yao raised her eyebrows; it was not far from the hospital, yet he came back with the takeaway almost an hour later right when she finished her acupuncture.
Why did he take so long to return when the stall was only a stone’s throw away?
Did he see everything back then, including the acupuncture she did for Grandmother Liang?
That would explain why he backed her fully when she wanted to operate on Lu Xingzhi.
Jiang Yao smiled. How could Zhou Weiqi be a soft and indecisive man with such wonderful traits?
“What are you smiling at?”
Lu Xingzhi looked at Jiang Yao.
“Nothing. I’m just happy that you are finally out of the hospital. By the way, how long are we staying in Jindo City for?” Jiang Yao shook her head, revealing none of her thoughts.
