Shen Lingshuang treaded lightly into the study. The moment she entered, she sprinted over to the computer and pulled out a key from beneath the computer keyboard with experience, opening a drawer on the right.
When she saw the household register in the drawer, she grinned and took it out.
Turning around, she found herself staring at a pair of deep, penetrating eyes. This was none other than Father Lu whom she had been waiting for—the great Chief Lu. Because she had a guilty conscience, she was so taken aback that she nearly jumped.
That robust and muscular body advanced toward her, asking out at the same time, “… What are you doing?”
Shen Lingshuang’s heartbeat went erratic as her body stiffened.
He furrowed his brows while looking at her with a sharp gaze. Toward this wife of his, Chief Lu had a deep understanding. Glancing at the household register in Shen Lingshuang’s hands, he asked again, “What are you holding onto the household register for?”
Shen Lingshuang replied hurriedly, “Erm… I lost my identity card! I’m taking the household register to go get a replacement.”
“When did you lose it?”
“Do you know that when you lie, you always look down to your right instinctively?” Father Lu’s expression was getting colder as his face was turning eerily dark. “Tell me, just what is going on?”
Just as Shen Lingshuang was still thinking up of an excuse of how to resolve this, the household register in her hands were taken away by Father Lu. He placed it back in the drawer as she commented pitifully, “I know you’ve been keeping an eye on your son. I’m sure you know what he wants to do!”
“Marriage! Not so easy!”
“Even if you don’t give him the household register, he will get a way to get her name registered into our household and married all the same.”
“I’d like to see him try!” Chief Lu’s authority was unrivaled. With that single remark, there was naturally no one who would dare defy him.
Given Shen Lingshuang’s character—especially in front of Chief Lu—she was so feeble that she could barely have any sort of temper at all, so she replied softly, “I quite like that girl. And, since Little Chen doesn’t like that one… It’s been so many years now, I’m sure you can tell what sort of a person she is! There are many ways to repay a debt—she doesn’t have to be our daughter-in-law for us to do it. I also wish to choose a daughter-in-law who is someone I fancy as well.”
“But, don’t forget about how father had put it in the past. For something like superstitions, we should rather believe in it happening than to disbelieve and regret when something happens.”
“But, is it really good for a marriage to be arranged like that?”
“Our marriage was also arranged by my father. Aren’t we doing just fine now?”
That remark struck a chord with Shen Lingshuang as her face darkened while her eyes went red and she started sniffing out, complaining unhappily, “Yeah, I’m so sorry it must have been HARD on you to marry me! Because of that, I caused you to be unable to live happily ever after with your first love! Do you want me to divorce you right now?”
“Where are you getting at? I’m discussing with you about the marriage of our son,” Chief Lu was angered.
“Is this a discussion? It’s only YOU calling the shots! Since you dislike me that much, how about divorcing me right away and getting together with that first love of yours then!” After expressing the displeasure in her heart, Shen Lingshuang started crying out.
That tempered steel melted into gooey marshmallow right away—the hardened, great Chief Lu suddenly lost every single bit of imposingness to his aura as he rushed over to her side. “Now, now, what are you getting angry over? Those are all matters of the long-gone past! I don’t even remember how she looks like now, and yet you’re getting angry over that? Be good, don’t cry anymore! Look at how your beautiful face is being stained by your tears!”
When Shen Lingshuang heard that, she broke out into a smile. She raised her hand and thumped down onto Chief Lu’s shoulder before glaring at him.
Chief Lu then coaxed his dainty wife even more, “The reason why I got married is that I had taken a liking to you. In my heart, there’s no woman who can compare to you!”
“How old are you now… What are you talking about… tsk.”
“In my heart, you’re always 18…”
The way Chief Lu was coaxing and whispering sweet nothings to her right now was totally contrasting to the way he carried himself usually.
Hell, if any outsiders were to see this, their jaws would probably drop wide open!
