The Second Marriage Was Spoiled By The Boss - Chapter 13
Edited by Dawn
The story of ‘Sun Wukong beating the White Bone Demon three times’ was finally over.
Zhang Qian turned to find Chen Xu and noticed the thin figure outside the window.
Chen Xu stood on the sidewalk outside the hospital with her back facing him, answering the phone. The sun was shining on her, making her hair shine brightly. Her skin was so white that it was almost transparent.
She was probably talking to someone about something funny, her shoulders trembling slightly while the hand holding the phone was also shaking with laughter.
Zhang Qian was about to look away when he saw her lift the back of her hand and wipe it on her face.
Again, and again.
Zhang Qian was stunned. She was not laughing, she was crying. She was wiping her tears.
When she turned her face sideways, Zhang Qian saw the corners of her lips pressed tightly. It was obstinacy. Stubborn, but with an unexplainable vulnerability.
Zhang Qian turned his head in silence, and his heart felt a little stuffed.
He could probably guess who Chen Xu was talking to on the phone. The man who could still make her cry right now. Did she still love him?
He remembered that she sat on the back of the man’s bike across campus as the wind blew her long hair. Her smile was sweeter than the weather in May.
She still hadn’t let go of the feeling of being betrayed? Even if that person had already gone far away and has become someone else’s husband?
Suddenly realizing that there was no movement from the little boy, Zhang Qian looked down and could not help but laugh. Tong Tong unexpectedly fell asleep.
Just after telling the story, which was just ten seconds, he actually fell asleep. The world of children was really pure. Crying and laughing are instantaneous things. Waking up and sleeping are also instantaneous things.
He was sleeping soundly. His little arm was lying on the armrest of the chair while his head was resting on his arm. His long eyelashes were like two small fans.
It looked so cute.
Zhang Qian couldn’t help but smile, placing his head in his hand to make him sleep more comfortably.
Chen Xu approached from afar. Her face had already regained its composure as her mouth was relaxed with a light smile. Her steps were light, and apart from her slightly reddened eyes, it was unable to tell that she had cried.
Seeing that Tong Tong was asleep, she felt a bit helpless. “Hey, didn’t you make a lot of noise a moment ago? Why did you fall asleep?”
Zhang Qian smiled but said nothing. A moment ago, someone leaned against the wall and slept better than a child.
Chen Xu took out her mobile phone and said, “I’ll call a taxi. He’s already 30 kg. I can’t carry him all the way back.”
Zhang Qian smiled and responded, “No need to call a taxi, I’ll take you back. I drove over here.”
Chen Xu quickly refused in response. “Don’t bother, it’s very close to my house, just one corner.”
“It’s too close for a taxi.” Zhang Qian had already picked up Tong Tong and said, “Let’s go. No need to be polite.”
In public, Chen Xu could not snatch the child, so she followed Zhang Qian and walked out.
The child was about 30 kg, but Zhang Qian carried him easily and effortlessly.
Tong Tong was sleeping peacefully on his shoulder, his little head touching his face. The taller the man was, the more it brought out the child’s young and childish face. From the back, it looked like a very sweet picture.
Chen Xu’s nose was a little sore as she watched.
Once upon a time, a happy family of three was just like this: the father held the child in his arms, while the mother followed him with peace of mind.
At that time, she thought that it would go on like this forever.
Now things were different. Her so-called love couldn’t stand the temptation of power, nor the destruction of trivial daily life.
A little wind and waves, or even no wind and waves, could destroy the marriage boat.
The car stopped at the gate of the family building. When Chen Xu was holding Tong Tong to get off the car, Tong Tong woke up.
“Mom, how did we get home in no time?” The little boy looked around curiously before asking, “Mommy, is this uncle’s car? Did Uncle send us back?”
“Yes, Tong Tong, say thank you to Uncle quickly. You’ve caused Uncle trouble today.”
Tong Tong leaned down on the back of the driver’s seat. Little Chubby took Zhang Qian’s arm and pointed it out to him. “Uncle, my family lives there. Would you like to visit my house? I have Ultraman in my house!”
The little boy’s voice was sweet and soft while his eyes were absolutely sincere. It seemed that his trust was absolute. Zhang Qian’s heart was melting fast.
Playing Ultraman was fun, so he could go over and have some fun, but Chen Xu didn’t say anything, so in the end, he could only smile and refuse.
“Next time. You and your mother are tired today. Go back and have a good rest.”
“I’m not tired! Mom’s not tired either! Isn’t that right, Mom?” Tong Tong tugged on Chen Xu’s arm and shook it. “Let Uncle come to play at home. Uncle never saw it before.”
Speaking of this, Chen Xu couldn’t pretend to be deaf and dumb. He had to invite Zhang Qian. “Brother, if it’s all right, come to my house for dinner. I said I would invite you to dinner last time.”
Chen Xu thought that Zhang Qian would refuse, but he didn’t. He readily agreed, “Won’t it cause you any trouble?”
It’s not too much trouble for her. Anyway, she and Tong Tong had yet to have dinner. It’s just an extra pair of chopsticks. Besides, Zhang Qian has helped her too much right now, that it was right to invite him to dinner.
However, the meaning of inviting people to eat out was not the same as inviting people to eat dinner at home. The shift in their relationship had suddenly become too close, which made her feel a little hesitant.
“No, it’s just some home-cooked dishes. As long as you don’t mind my cooking, come and join us,” Chen Xu said politely.
When they got out of the car, Tong Tong happily took Zhang Qian’s hand and walked forward. Looking back, he saw Chen Xu fall behind, and the little boy stretched out his hand to pull Chen Xu.
After two steps, Chen Xu suddenly realized that something was wrong.
The picture of Tong Tong holding Zhang Qian with his left hand and her with his right hand was a bit ambiguous. If the teachers in the building saw it, she did not even want to know what they would think.
Chen Xu quickly let go of Tong Tong’s hand before walking in front of them by a few steps to lead the way.
Back home in fear, Chen Xu closed the door and became relieved.
As soon as he got home, Tong Tong took Zhang Qian to show off his Ultraman. Seeing Zhang Qian patiently talking with Tong Tong while playing with toys, Chen Xu was filled with envy.
She did not know which lucky little angel will be reincarnated as a child of Zhang Qian. With such a patient and meticulous father, that child would definitely be very happy.
Chen Xu went through the refrigerator and decided to make four dishes and one soup: roast beef with potatoes, fried hairtail fish, eggplant with minced pork, stir-fried chicken and vegetables with soy sauce, as well as some towel gourd and egg soup.
It was a great meal for three people.
First, she took the meat and fish out of the freezer and defrosted them. While waiting for them to thaw, she washed and cut up all the vegetables.
As she waited for the pressure cooker to tenderize the beef, Chen Xu worked on two pots at the same time, one to cook the soup and the other to fry the hairtail fish.
After the chicken and vegetables were fried, the beef was now tenderized. The potatoes have been stewed in the pot, while the beef had been put in and stewed with a little salt. The pot of fried chicken and vegetables was washed clean to cook the eggplant with minced pork.
In the living room, Tong Tong and Zhang Qian had a good time.
“Uncle, there’s also an Ultraman helmet on the balcony on top of the white box,” Tong Tong instructed Zhang Qian to work. “Will you please go and get it for me?”
“Ok.” Zhang Qian gladly agreed.
There was a white plastic box in the corner of the balcony. The Ultraman helmet was on the box. Zhang Qian bent down to take the helmet and was about to go back to the living room. But as he was about to do so, when he lifted his head, he suddenly touched the clothes hanging on the balcony.
The small fabric hanging on a hanger fell on his toes.
When he saw it, Zhang Qian became petrified.
It was a woman’s bra. The white bra only had a thin layer of lace and was almost transparent. The shoulder straps were also thin and extremely provocative.
It laid on the ground, emanating an enchanting aura, testing his panic index.
Zhang Qian looked calmly into the living room and saw that Tong Tong was playing with toys with his head down instead of looking at him. The kitchen door was closed; Chen Xu hadn’t come out yet.
Zhang Qian quickly bent over to pick up the small object and hung it back on the clothes pole.
When he hung it, he found that there was a pair of matching white bottom trousers on the clothes drying pole, which also was a thin layer of lace but this time, completely transparent. The sexual feeling was disgusting.
Zhang Qian quickly looked away. He felt a little dizzy. It was so unlike Teacher Chen’s style. His heart couldn’t stand it.
“Uncle, that’s for girls, not for boys.”
Tong Tong’s little voice suddenly resounded. Zhang Qian was horrified to find that Tong Tong was not playing with toys anymore. He was sitting on the living room floor, while his big eyes were looking at him intensely.
Zhang Qian was left at a loss for words.
Was he caught red-handed? Was it seen by Tong Tong when he was hanging the clothes back on the clothes pole? Or did Tong Tong see him staring at her underwear?
What should he do? how should he explain it to the children?
Seeing that Zhang Qian didn’t respond, Tong Tong ran over and pointed to the underwear to give Zhang Qian science in person. “This is the underwear that Aunt Yinan gave to my mother. Boys can’t wear this because they don’t have boobs.”
Zhang Qian was left at a loss for words for a long time after that.
Zhang Qian dragged Tong Tong back to the living room and thought about it before deciding to talk about it with Tong Tong first.
“Tong Tong, Uncle wants to talk to you about something.”
“What is it?”
“Don’t tell your mom about what just happened, okay?”
“What’s the matter?” Tong Tong looked at Zhang Qian with a confused expression as he asked.
Zhang Qian hated that he talked too much. The memory of a child was only a few minutes. What he saw just now will be forgotten. He didn’t even need to ask him to keep it secret.
“Oh, it’s nothing. Come on, let’s keep playing.” Zhang Qian soon relaxed and was going to use Ultraman to make Tong Tong forget all about it.
“Was it about you taking Mom’s underwear?” Tong Tong suddenly comprehended and looked innocently at Zhang Qian.
This time, Zhang Qian felt like he was going to die. He wanted to vomit blood. He almost suspected that the little villain was deliberately teasing him. This time, he brought down an opponent, which was better than martial arts experts.
Zhang Qian organized his words. “Just now, I accidentally touched your mother’s clothes off, that’s why I picked it up and hung it back. I didn’t mean to take it down and look at it.”
“Okay.” Tong Tong nodded vaguely.
“Then, don’t tell your mom about this, okay?” Zhang Qian coerced and seduced him. “If you keep it a secret, next time, Uncle will buy you an ice cream.”
“Okay!” Tong Tong nodded happily. “I want to eat whirlwind ice cream!”
“No problem. As many as you want.” Zhang Qian reached out his finger and said, “Come on, pull the hook.”
“Let’s hook up our pinkies and give them a pull, and thereby we will not break our promise for a hundred years.” Tong Tong pulled the hook with him, one big thumb and two small thumbs stamped together.
