The Second Marriage Was Spoiled By The Boss - Chapter 10
“Was it your ex-husband who called you just now?”
Hearing Zhang Qian’s question, Chen Xu knew that everything Lu Zhenyu said to her on the phone had been heard by Zhang Qian.
There was nothing to hide, Chen Xu nodded, “Yes. Ex-husband.”
“How old is the child? Boy or girl?”
“Four years old. He’s in kindergarten.” When it comes to her son, Chen Xu’s tone was very gentle. “A very good boy.”
“It’s not easy for you.” Zhang Qian’s tone was somewhat emotional.
Chen Xu a light smile, “It’s all right.”
She heard so many words of sympathy. Almost everyone would say “it’s not easy” when they learned that she had divorced and had a child with her.
It’s really not easy, and she thinks it’s hard, too. So what? Who was easy in adult life? She did not feel that she was more miserable than others and needed more sympathy.
Zhang Qian turned to look at her. “I’m a single-parent family, too. My father died when I was seven years old, and my mother brought me up alone.”
“Oh.” Chen Xu nodded.
She knew that Zhang Qian was explaining. Explain why he exclaimed that it was not easy. He recognized her hidden unhappiness.
This man was really sharp.
Chen Xu seemed to understand why Zhang Qian works so hard to make money and why he started a company with several classmates when he was in college.
Perhaps, children who grow up in single-parent families are more considerate of their parents and understand the hardships of life.
The car quickly entered the teachers’ dormitory area of the school.
The dormitory area was full of trees and looks beautiful during the day, but it’s a little dark and gloomy at night.
The houses were old houses. At the time of the planning, we did not expect that the society would develop so fast, and the road between the houses was very narrow. Now, the side of the road was full of private cars, leaving only one lane to go.
When Chen Xu saw that the car was difficult to drive, she said to the driver, “Just stop at the gate. The road inside was too narrow to drive. I’ll just walk back by myself.”
She was about to say goodbye to Zhang Qian when Zhang Qian opened the door and came out, “I’ll take you to the door.”
Chen Xu pointed to the six-story building at the end of the path. ” I live in that building. I have already reached the door of my house.”
“Let’s go.” Zhang Qian said, “you lost your glasses, and the light on the road was not good. Anyway, it’s already here, so let’s just send the Buddha to the west*.”
(*TN: There is one Chinese quote, 送佛送到西, which literally says sending the Buddha to the furthest of the West. It means finishing a task given and not giving up in the middle.)
Chen Xu also did not argumentative. She said thank you, and the two walked side by side along the path towards the family building.
For some years, the cement road surface was not very smooth, and two street lamps were broken. Chen Xu tried to distinguish it under her foot, but it’s still a long walk.
Walk down the path with a handful of sweat, Chen Xu finally breathed a sigh of relief when she finally quickly walked to the brightly lit bring down.
“Brother, thank you for sending me back so late. I’m really sorry to have caused you so much trouble today.” Chen Xu thanked him politely.
“You’re welcome. It’s doesn’t matter.” Zhang Qian stood with no intention of leaving.
He looked at her, the brow bone blocked the light, the eyes were dark, the light inside hidden deep.
Chen Xu was confused. She didn’t know what he means and she also didn’t know what to say, so she said politely, “Then I’ll go up and invite you to dinner another day.”
“Good.” Zhang Qian waved to her, “go ahead. I’ll smoke here.”
Chen Xu realized that he wanted to see her go upstairs before leaving.
He turned out to be such a gentleman and so considerate.
Ashamed of her little thoughts just now, Chen Xu waved at him and hurriedly turned around.
She was in such a hurry that she forgot that there were three more steps in the corridor to hit the steps. As soon as she turned around, she lost control and fall back to the ground.
Today was really unlucky and shameful … Chen Xu’s arms were ready to support the ground, but the whole her body was supported by a force.
She fell steadily into Zhang Qian’s arms.
When her body was pasted together, she could smell that he had not only a light smell of wine but also a very light fragrance, like the dry and warm fragrance of the sunny grassland.
It smells good.
Only two seconds, Chen Xu soon stabilized her body, Zhang Qian also released her at the right time.
Chen Xu was so embarrassed that she could only pretend to play a joke with Zhang Qian calmly. “It doesn’t feel enough to invite you only one meal.”
She owed him too much today.
Zhang Qian smiled. “I don’t mind if you invite me to more meals.”
Seeing Chen Xu going upstairs and hearing the sound of opening and closing the door on the third floor, Zhang Qian pinched off his cigarette and walked slowly along the path towards the gate of the family area.
In the car, the driver asked Zhang Qian, “Boss Zhang, shall we go through the South Gate of the school and take the overhead line directly? It’s much smoother.”
There was no sound in the back seat.
The driver was a little confused. He turned his head and secretly looked back. He found that Zhang Qian was looking out of the window. He didn’t know what he was thinking, but the radian of the corner of his mouth was pleasant.
That’s weird. What is this expression? The driver muttered in his heart and asked again to ask what he had just said.
“Oh, everything is alright.” This time, Zhang Qian finally heard.
When the car left the gate of the family yard, Zhang Qian looked back at the six-story building.
The light was still on in the window on the third floor, and the light-colored bed curtain has been pulled up.
Chen Xu went home and put on her glasses. She took her son back from Teacher Song’s home. The little guy was sleeping soundly. The fever has gone, and there was a thin layer of sweat on his forehead.
Chen Xu wiped Tong Tong’s body again with warm water. Seeing that he was nothing different, she picked up her mobile phone and called Zhou Yinan.
Zhou Yinan was obviously not asleep. When she picked up the phone, her voice was excited.
“Well, did you see Zhang Qian at dinner? Did he came?”
“Yes.” Chen Xu told Zhou Yinan about Zhang Qian’s plan to donate the video room to the library again, sighing, “no wonder everyone wants to curry favor with him. No matter how difficult it is, it can be solved as soon as the money comes out.”
“Did you ask him for his phone number? Or scan the code and add Wechat or something?” Zhou Yinan was not interested in the video room, but only concerned about Chen Xu’s love life.
“No.” Chen Xu said a series of embarrassing things happened today and said, “why I’m so unlucky today?”
“No! No! No!” Zhou Yinan said three no in a row, “baby! You are so lucky today!”
Chen Xu: “? ? ?”
“You see, these things look bad, but what are the consequences? It’s to shorten the distance between you and Zhang Qian!” Zhou Yinan laughed, “if I were you, I would pretend to twist my feet on the way home and hum that I couldn’t walk on the way home. Let him hold me and carry me.”
Chen Xu was too lazy to talk with her, “OK, I’m going to wash and sleep after reporting the situation. You should go to bed earlier, too.”
“Wait a moment,” Zhou Yinan suddenly realized one thing. “You said you almost fell when you came to the door of the building?”
“Almost fell but didn’t fall. Did Zhang Qian hold you?”
Chen Xu had to admit, “Yes.”
“Shit!” Zhou Yinan claps her thighs. “This is the plot of the idol drama! You two will definitely have a spark in the future! You see, God is helping you!”
Chen Xu: “…”
“Tease him!” Zhou Yinan said with a smile, “Zhang Qian hugged you, and he will be responsible for you.”
The author of this book has something to say: Zhang Qian: I’m not dazed, I’m just aftertaste. In addition, I am willing to be responsible. Come and tease me.
