Chapter 471: Full Attendance
“Four hundred thousand only. It does not include the one hundred thousand as surgery fees,” Lu Xingzhi explained.
Jiang Yao inhaled sharply. She did not expect that from Lu Xingzhi.
“You deserve the money for your efforts, okay?” Lu Xingzhi patted her head. “Weiqi does have some savings with him, he’s not penniless. With the Zhou family around though, he did not have a chance to spend them.”
Even though he was not as well-off as the rest of his buddies, he was not in want.
They sat talking and left as the sun set. However, Jiang Yao did not know how they made their way out.
They were deep in conversation and sat in each other’s embrace. It was sometime later when Jiang Yao fell asleep and found herself in the car when she woke up. The car was entering Kin City as she opened her eyes; the soft glaze of sunset shining down on her face.
Lu Xingzhi, once again, was the cook for tonight’s dinner. Jiang Yao had plenty of snacks in the afternoon and had no appetite for dinner. After a few spoonfuls of food, she left for the shower while Lu Xingzhi washed the dishes.
It was only a little over eight o’clock at night. Jiang Yao did not expect Lu Xingzhi to have any funny ideas tonight as they went a little too much last night. She moved toward the inside of the bed, making some space for Lu Xingzhi to lie on while casually asking what time they were leaving the next morning.
“The recognition ceremony is to begin at half past nine in the morning, so I’ll have to reach the platoon no later than nine o’clock. We’ll have to give Colonel Lin and Mrs. Lin a ride too. So, we should be out by seven in the morning.” Lu Xingzhi briefly thought about it, before adding, “Colonel Lin and I are coming back to Jindo City later in the afternoon for a memorial service for all personnels who were sacrificed. If you’re too tired, you can wait at home in the platoon instead.”
“Will Mrs. Lin be there?” Jiang Yao asked.
“I think so, all family members of the people who participated in the rescue mission will be there as well.” Lu Xingzhi was worried that Jiang Yao could not handle too much travelling over a few days. “If you want to be at the memorial service, you should stay back in the morning. We’ll return to Jin City together after that.”
“Who do you think I am? A frail and weak woman?” Jiang Yao chuckled. “I want to be there for the memorial service and your recognition ceremony.”
Of course, Lu Xingzhi saw Jiang Yao as a genteel and soft woman. However, he was also reminded of the woman who matched his energy and physical outburst that night at the hotel in Nanjing City.
Since they needed to wake up early the next morning, Jiang Yao thought, they should get some sleep soon.
She did not expect Lu Xingzhi to push her under his body right after they finished talking.
There was no way Jiang Yao could resist a man who had his will set on her.
Fortunately, Lu Xingzhi still knew the right thing to do. Knowing that they were going to have a busy day the next day, he cuddled her and went right to sleep after only two sessions.
Jiang Yao was mad, he ignored the doctor’s advice, again!
The next morning, Jiang Yao offered to be the driver. They went to the hospital first, fetching Colonel Lin and Mrs. Lin before departing for Jin City.
The journey was smooth without any hiccups and they reached the platoon right on time at nine o’clock.
