Chapter 56: A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing
However, would a normal man be so chummy with a woman he just met? Would they be so friendly that he could put his hand on the belly of the pregnant woman? He looked like a father who was expecting his child to come into this world.
Jiang Yao sneered silently. If she hadn’t witnessed such a scene today, she would have totally forgotten about the grief and pain Zhao Zhuangzong had brought to Lu Yuqing before rebirth.
She had herself to blame. After rebirth, all she thought about was Lu Xingzhi. She wanted to fill her heart, mind, and soul to the brim with Lu Xingzhi that she paid little attention to others.
Including this silly girl in front of her who was had the purest and most innocent smile on her face. In the subsequent events before her rebirth, she had encountered a tragic accident that wiped her pure smile off her face. She even suffered from depression and attempted suicide several times.
“Jiang Yao, what do you want to eat?” Lu Xiaoxiao handed the menu over to Jiang Yao after placing her orders. “Pick two dishes too! I think everything looks so nice! Too bad that there’s only two of us, it would be a waste if we ordered too much. Otherwise, I’d love to try them all.”
Jiang Yao was not in the mood right now. She glanced through the menu intently, simply picked two dishes from the menu, and handed the menu back to the waiter.
The Lu children had good upbringing. Although they were from a well-off family, Lu Xiaoxiao didn’t have the habit of extravagance and waste.
Jiang Yao found the food tasteless and bland. Her thought drifted to the two people who had just sat in their seats. She felt nauseated and disgusted.
Speaking of Zhao Zhuangzong, she had to talk about the Zhao family.
The Zhao family were from the county but they were not rich. Zhao Zhuangzong had three siblings, two sisters and a younger brother. Only Zhao Zhuangzong and his brother had the opportunity to finish schools. Both the two daughters went to work in factories after graduating from primary school and got married at the age of 18.
Zhao Zhuangzong graduated from a technical high school. She wasn’t sure how he and Lu Yuqing had meet. After they were married, Lu Yuqing worked as a financial manager at Lu Haixing’s food factory and was in charge of the factory’s financial department. As for Zhao Zhuangzong, through Lu Haixing’s string-pulling, he worked as a technician in a factory. Lu Haixing had hired someone to personally train Zhao Zhuangzong to master the skills. It was also because of Lu Haixing that Zhao Zhuangzong had been promoted as team leader very quickly. Within a short period of time, he was promoted to supervisor and then became a small-time director of the department.
In the eyes of the Lu family, Zhao Zhuangzong was a very obedient and honest man. He treated Lu Yuqing very nicely and he was very filial to the elders in both families. Sometimes, if Lu Yuqing didn’t have time to go home, Zhao Zhuangzong would visit his in-laws on his own and have dinner with them.
The crucial point was that the Zhao family had some unpleasant issues with Lu Yuqing as the couple had not been able to conceive a child after being married for so many years. In spite of that, Zhao Zhuangzong had always stood by Lu Yuqing’s side and had sworn that he would love her for the rest of his life even if she couldn’t have a child.
Lu Yuqing married Zhao Zhuangzong at the age of 20. Now, Lu Yuqing was 28 years old. The couple had a childless marriage for eight years but they shared a very compassionate couple life.
If it wasn’t for her rebirth and spending eleven more years in her previous life, Jiang Yao would have been deceived by Zhao Zhuangzong, who was a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
