The Second Marriage Was Spoiled By The Boss - Chapter 4
After dinner, Chen Xu went to the balcony with her mobile phone to call Lu Zhenyu.
Ye Zhiqing liked to read Lu Zhenyu’s WeChat, so she called Lu Zhenyu directly when she had something to do, so as not to cause trouble.
It seemed that Lu Zhenyu was still outside for social activities. The voice on the phone was very noisy. Chen Xu simply said something about the sports meeting and asked him, “Can you go next Wednesday?”
The notice said that parents were invited to bring their children to school. Other families would be a family of three. She didn’t want Tong Tong just watching other children riding on their father’s shoulders.
She hoped that Lu Zhenyu would go and make Tong Tong happy.
However, Lu Zhenyu’s answer disappointed Chen Xu.
“This… It’s too bad. I have something to do next week. I’ll be out of town for a whole week. There’s really nothing I can do about it… ” Lu Zhenyu stammered, a little guilty and had to refuse.
Chen Xu was silent for a while. At least, she didn’t say much, only faintly said: “OK. There’s nothing else. I’ll hang up first.”
After hanging up the phone, Chen Xu turned around and found that Tong Tong was being held by the wall. He looked at her with big eyes and full of expectation.
Chen Xu understood that he was hiding here to eavesdrop. She wants to laugh, but also felt a little sad. She went over and patted her son on the head. “What are you doing hiding here, baby?”
“Mom, did Dad say yes? Can he come to the sports meeting?” Tong Tong jumped into Chen Xu’s arms and hugged her waist and looked up at her.
Chen Xu squatted down to level with Tong Tong’s line of sight: “Your Dad has very important things to do and cannot go. Mom can go with you. What Dad can do, Mom can do the same thing. Let’s work hard together to try to run fast and jump away, OK?”
Chen Xu’s tone was brisk and her expression was relaxed. She tried her best to convey to her son that it was not a big deal if his dad did not go, but Tong Tong burst into tears after hearing it.
Chen Xu coaxed Tong Tong for a long time, and she also broke out in a sweat.
Seeing Tong Tong quiet down to listen to the story, Chen Xu took his clothes and went to the bathroom to take a shower.
Hearing the sound of water in the bathroom, Tong Tong took Chen Xu’s mobile phone and ran to the balcony to call Lu Zhenyu.
“Dad!” Tong Tong shouted to his father in a milky voice, and tears began to roll in his eyes.
Hearing Tong Tong’s voice, Lu Zhenyu was pleasantly surprised, “Hey! Good boy! Do you miss your Dad? Dad misses you, too!”
“Dad! Why don’t you come to the sports meeting?” Tong Tong burst into tears. “All the other children have fathers, but I don’t! Why don’t you go home? Dad, don’t you want me?”
Tong Tong had asked Lu Zhenyu this question countless times. He felt sad and could not bear it every time he heard that, but he couldn’t answer it.
“Dad, would you like to go to the sports meeting with me? You are the best runner. Shall we go for a run?”
The child’s voice sounded soft to plead; made Lu Zhenyu unable to say no. After being haunted by the little milk sound for a long time, Lu Zhenyu had to nod and said, “OK, Dad is coming to participate in your sports meeting. If we run with Tong Tong, we are sure to win first place!”
When Chen Xu came out from the shower, Tong Tong fell asleep askew on the sofa. The story remained a secret between two men. The little man had a teardrop on his eyelashes and fell into a deep sleep.
The next day is the day when S hosted a banquet for the representative of Huateng Company. This morning, Chen Xu got up half an hour early.
Last night, she searched in the closet for a long time before she came up with a suit of clothes that looked good.
The coat was a silk shirt, with a very beautiful lake green, like the pool of Jiuzhaigou valley. There were two ribbons on the shirt collar, which could be tied into a beautiful bow. With a white umbrella skirt and a pair of flat ballet shoes, it perfectly fitted Liu’s requirements for “not too glamorous but not casual”.
This shirt was bought five years ago, and it was Chen Xu’s most expensive dress. The silk was delicate and soft, and the price at that time also made her suffer, so she rarely wore it.
After giving birth to Tong Tong, it was even more impossible to wear silk to take care of the baby every day. The dress was just hung in a dust-proof bag; untill today when it finally came to see the light again.
Fortunately, it was a basic model. Even for clothes from five years ago, it did not look out of date, and they still looked good on the body.
The white umbrella skirt along the calf was very similar to the Hepburn’s skirt on a Roman holidays. This style was not popular this year, but it matched perfectly with the silk shirt and has a retro style.
The shirt was tucked at the waist of the skirt to outline the slender waist, which made her look beautiful and neat. Chen Xu was very satisfied.
She sent her son to kindergarten. Chen Xu stayed in the library for most of the day until 4 p.m. and finally got off work.
She usually dresses simply and casually. Today, when she was suddenly dressed, the eyes of her colleagues kept glued to her.
Song Chunfang has been whispering behind her back, not knowing what she was talking about. Chen Xu pretended not to know, but she was still a little annoyed.
The dinner with Huateng was arranged at six o’clock. The restaurant is not far from the school. She could take a taxi at five o’clock.
After sitting for too long, Chen Xu got up and went to the bathroom, preparing to move around the corridor.
Chen Xu had not yet reached the bathroom door when he saw Ye Zhiqing head-on. She came up the stairs, her high-heeled shoes thumping on the mountain, which was particularly harsh in the quiet library.
Why did Ye Zhiqing come here? She is not looking for her, is it? Chen Xu’s heart thumped.
It was not that she was afraid of Ye Zhiqing, but she was worried that Ye Zhiqing would cause trouble in the library, causing colleagues and students to see jokes.
Seeing Chen Xu, Ye Zhiqing immediately reached out her finger and pointed at her, “Chen Xu! Don’t leave, I have something to tell you!”
Ye Zhiqing really came to find her.
She looked around; two students looking this way, Chen Xu frowned, “Let’s go out and talk.”
She took the lead to go outside and led Ye Zhiqing to the small garden at the side of the library.
Standing by the bench, Chen Xu still didn’t open her mouth but Ye Zhiqing has already shouted, “Chen Xu! You really are too shameless to the end! All-day long, you seduce Lu Zhenyu with your son as a shield! What’s the matter with you!”
Chen Xu thought that Ye Zhiqing was talking about her call to Lu Zhenyu, so she said, “When you interfered with my marriage to Lu Zhenyu, you knew he has children. When you decided to marry him, you should know very well that he is Tong Tong’s father, and the relationship between him and Tong Tong will not be interrupted because of your marriage. If you choose him, you have to face this kind of hindrance. If this bond makes you uncomfortable and makes you jealous and crazy, it only means you are stupid.”
“Bah! If it was a normal father-son meeting, would I stop it? It’s clear that you are deliberately instigating! Zhenyu and I managed to take a vacation together. The air tickets and hotels are all booked. Once you call, he will cancel the trip. What sports meeting he is going to take part in! Chen Xu, you really have the ability! While dating everywhere, you seduced your ex-husband to keep him thinking about you!”
Chen Xu was surprised. “Lu Zhenyu is going to take part in the sports meeting?”
“Pretend! Keep pretending for me!” Ye Zhiqing was trembling with anger. “Don’t blame me for not warning you, Mrs. Chen. If you do this again, you may lose your job and let you beg on the street!”
Seeing Ye Zhiqing’s crazy appearance, Chen Xu suddenly felt a little funny. Really, this was ridiculous and funny. How could she be related to people like this?
“Yes, you have the ability. You are very good. I am very scared.” Chen Xu turned to leave, “I have to go to work, excuse me.”
Chen Xu’s contemptuous attitude was the most irritating. Ye Zhiqing was so angry. She didn’t know who put half a cup of unfinished coffee by the bench but she picked up the coffee cup and threw it on Chen Xu!
