The Second Marriage Was Spoiled By The Boss - Chapter 11
Edited by Dawn
Of course, it was impossible for Chen Xu to tease Zhang Qian. She was not interested in remarrying right now. All she wanted to do was to work hard and get money to support her son.
Besides, she and Zhang Qian were two people from different worlds. After having dinner together that day, they never met again.
Time passed quickly. In a flash, the time for the kindergarten sports meeting finally came.
Tong Tong woke up early in the morning and blew at Chen’s face, saying, “Mom, Mom! It’s time to get up and take part in the sports meeting!”
Chen Xu soon made breakfast and changed his son into sportswear and light sneakers. Seeing the handsome and energetic little boy in the mirror, Chen Xu was full of pride and couldn’t help kissing his cheek. “My son is so handsome!”
“Mom is cool, too. Mom is beautiful!” Tong Tong tilted his head and looked at Chen Xu, saying sweet words. “Mom’s legs are like milk, sweet, and fragrant.”
Chen Xu burst out laughing. Because of the hot weather, she was wearing sports shorts, showing two long legs. Doesn’t her white greasy skin look like milk?
Her son was very good at praising people.
The mother and son duo happily went out of the door.
“Mom, can you call dad? Ask if he has arrived.” Little Tong Tong loved to worry, wanting Chen Xu to call Lu Zhenyu.
“Don’t worry, I asked him last night. He said he would arrive on time.” Chen Xu touched Tong Tong’s hair as she responded. “Let’s go.”
There were already many people in the playground of the kindergarten. Around the playground, there was a circle of colorful flags, and also athletes’ marches who playing trumpets. The adults were talking and laughing. Little bean buns were running and playing as well. It was a lively scene.
The name of the class was written on the little red flag. Chen Xu found Tong Tong’s class and took him to go to the little red flag.
Half of the parents and children there had gathered under the shade of the tree. Chen Xu then led the child over to say hello to everyone.
After saying hello to everyone, Chen Xu chatted with the parents. Tong Tong ran into the group of children and showed them happily, “My father is coming, and he will be here soon! Today, my parents and I will be running together.”
The children were naive and sharp. A little boy asked Tong Tong, “Isn’t your parents divorced? Why did he come? Divorced means you can’t be with the kids. Your father can’t come to the sports meeting.”
“No!” Tong Tong’s face turned red. “My father can come! The teacher said he could come! He will come today!”
“I’m sure he can’t come,” a little girl chimed in. “He can’t come to the sports meeting after his divorce.”
Other children also laughed at Tong Tong’s lies, pulling down their eyelids with their fingers and making faces at him.
Tong Tong burst into tears and ran towards Chen Xu, hugging her leg as he asked, “Mom! Can dad come today? After the divorce, can he still come to the sports meeting?”
Chen Xu took Tong Tong aside and pondered for a long time before she understood his worries.
“My dear son, I’ll call your father now and let him tell you personally, OK?” Chen Xu immediately took out her mobile phone to call Lu Zhenyu.
“Sob~ … Sob~ …”
No one answered the phone.
Chen Xu called three times and the phone was always busy. Lu Zhenyu did not answer the phone.
“Mom?” Tong Tong looked at Chen Xu nervously with a thin layer of tears on his eyes. “Is Dad coming?”
Tong Tong’s nervousness and fear looked like a needle, which made Chen Xu feel pain.
Chen Xu appeased his son with a smile, “No, Dad said he would come. He may be on his way and it’s not convenient for him to answer the phone.”
“En!” Tong Tong nodded vigorously, finally relieved.
However, this reassurance didn’t last for a long time. The parents arrived one after another. The teacher began to explain all the things that needed to be considered in the sports meeting while Lu Zhenyu had not arrived yet.
All children stood between their parents, father on the left, and mother on the right.
Only Tong Tong and Chen Xu’s group was missing one section on the left.
Tong Tong kept turning his head, looking in the direction of the school gate. His little hands began to sweat. He waited and waited without knowing when his father came.
Chen Xu held the mobile phone tightly in her hand all this time. Lu Zhenyu didn’t contact her.
After the sports meeting officially started, Tong Tong no longer looked around. He was like an eggplant beaten by frost, completely wilting.
No matter how steady Chen Xu was, she kept her head down and didn’t talk. Chen Xu’s heart was like soaking in ice water, painful and cold.
