The Second Marriage Was Spoiled By The Boss - Chapter 9
Out of the corner of his eye, Zhang Qian glanced at her side and Chen Xu pulled her skirt a little uneasily.
Her skirt has been cut off already rather short. Now it’s even shorter when sitting down. The length of the skirt can cover the slim thighs. Her long legs were exposed. They are enchanting white in the dim car.
Her bag was a mini bag, which could only hold a mobile phone, tissue, key, and lipstick.
During the meal, she was fine because there’s a tablecloth to cover it while sitting down. Now, even if she put her bag on her leg, the scene of spring becomes known.
Chen Xu still remembers that when Zhang Qian saw her for the first time, his eyes stayed on her short skirt and legs. That’s the way a man looks at a woman, and Chen Xu understands it.
Now the distance between them was only a few centimeters, and the bare feet make her very uneasy.
In silence, Zhang Qian said, “Where is your home address?” His voice was light and soft.
“Oh!” Chen Xu came to her senses and stammered out her home address. She said politely, “I’m sorry, Boss Zhang, you have to take me home so late.”
If she hadn’t been in a hurry, she wouldn’t have taken Zhang Qian’s car.
“We’re all brother and sister, so you can call me Zhang Qian in the future.” Zhang Qian turned to look at her. “is your forehead all right?”
Chen Xu rubbed her forehead. “It’s all right, there’s no bleeding. It just hurts.”
Zhang Qian looked away from her white fingers and said to the driver in the front seat, “Xiao Zhang, pull over on the side road ahead.”
Chen Xu thought that he wanted the driver to go down to buy ointment for her and so on, so she quickly waved her hand, “No need. Don’t bother. I have ointment in my house. Just go back and I’ll apply it later.”
Zhang Qian smiled. “I haven’t finished yet.” He turned his head and looked at Chen Xu. His teeth were particularly white in the dark. “Don’t worry.”
“Xiao Zhang, there is spray in the box to treat injuries caused by falls. Give it to me later.” Zhang Qian said to the driver.
“Oh.” Chen Xu blushed and choked out two words, “Thank you.”
On the side road, the driver found the spray and handed it to Chen Xu. “Mrs. Chen, here’s the spray.”
Chen Xu thanked him. She opened the lid of the spray and pressed the nozzle on her forehead.
“Ugh…” The fine spray sprang out rapidly. Her forehead and face felt cold at the same time. It’s just that Chen Xu forgot to close her eyes so it was just a sudden tingling in her eyes.
“Ah!” Chen Xu gave a low cry in pain, and tears surged out in an instant and uncontrollably.
“What’s the matter?” Zhang Qian found something wrong and hurriedly turned on the light to check. “did you spray it in your eyes and nose?”
Chen Xu’s eyes could not open at all, her face was full of tears, and her voice was hoarse. “Well, I forgot to close my eyes just now.”
Zhang Qian: “…..”
She’s still stupid, ah. Teacher Chen, who looks capable and dignified, has not changed at all.
“Get out of the car and rinse your eyes with water.” Zhang Qian asked the driver to go to the trunk to get mineral water, reached out to hold Chen Xu’s elbow, “I’ll help you out of the car.”
The sleeves of the silk shirt were rolled up by Chen Xu, and Zhang Qian’s hands were measured, not touching her exposed skin, but holding her elbows steadily through the cloth.
Chen Xu’s eyes were hot and sore, tears kept coming out, and she choked very much in her nose.
She had forgotten that the skirt was too short, and the bag fell off her leg when she got up. A pair of long white and symmetrical feet were uncovered in front of Zhang Qian.
Zhang Qian didn’t want to see it, but he couldn’t help looking at it more.
The driver handed the mineral water to Zhang Qian.
“You raise your head and turn it a little bit. I’ll flush your left eye first.” Zhang Qian unscrewed the bottle cap.
“It’s all right. I’ll do it myself.” Chen Xu couldn’t open her eyes and fumbled to pick up the mineral water bottle in Zhang Qian’s hand. Unexpectedly, she didn’t touch the bottle but touched Zhang Qian’s hand.
Chen Xu was surprised and quickly withdrew her hand. Zhang Qian’s hands were very hot and the temperature seems to be higher than hers.
Don’t know if it’s a bit embarrassing, Zhang Qian was obviously silent for two seconds, then he asked Chen Xu, “Can you do it yourself?”
“Yes.” Chen Xu nodded vigorously, “it’s more convenient for me.”
This time, Zhang Qian handed the mineral water bottle into her hand. “There’s plenty of water, so you can wash it several times.”
Chen Xu has used up three bottles of mineral water, and her eyes were more comfortable. She could open them.
However, as soon as she opened her eyes, she was stunned and her contact lenses washed off! The sight in her eyes all became blurred.
“What’s the matter?” Zhang Qian was in a daze when he saw her and asked, “are you still uncomfortable?”
“Oh, it’s nothing. It’s just that the contact lenses have been washed out and I can’t see clearly.” Chen Xu gave an understated answer, but she was embarrassed and depressed. What happened today? Why does it happen so often?
“Oh, it’s all right,” Zhang Qian understood immediately. “I’ll take you to your door later.”
Chen Xu nodded. “Thank you, brother.”
Her eyes were a little short-sighted. She’s OK in the daytime. She doesn’t have glasses when she goes out at night, which is really a big problem.
“You’re welcome.” Zhang Qian turned and walked towards the car, smiling slightly from the corner of his mouth.
After shouting Boss Zhang all night, she finally knows how to call him brother.
Two people got in the car. Chen Xu worried about her son’s condition, so she picked up her cell phone and was about to call Teacher Song when the phone rang.
Chen Xu stared at the screen and found that it was Lu Zhenyu.
“Excuse me, I got a call.” Chen Xu smiled apologetically at Zhang Qian and answered the phone.
Lu Zhenyu’s voice was not very happy. “Chen Xu, why didn’t you answer the phone? Is the dinner not over yet?”
Chen Xu was stupefied, and her tone was also very cold. “What can I do for you?”
How did Lu Zhenyu know she was eating out? Also a tone of questioning. Who does he think he is.
“Just now, Teacher Song called me and said that you were eating out, but you still didn’t answer the phone. Chen Xu, how can you be a mother? Your son has a high fever, and you are in the mind to eat and drink outside!”
Chen Xu: “…”
“Since you are going to take custody of the child, you should take good care of the child! You do… ”
Chen Xu, with a finger, hung up the phone.
Lu Zhenyu’s noise upset her. It also made her feel humiliated. Zhang Qian was sitting next to her. The car was so quiet that he must have heard everything Lu Zhenyu said.
Chen Xu opened the phone list and called Teacher Song. Found that there were indeed several missed calls on the mobile phone, including Teacher Song’s and Lu Zhenyu’s.
Just now she went to the side of the road to wash her eyes, her cell phone was muted in the car, and she didn’t hear the call. It is estimated that Teacher Song called her and couldn’t find her, so she called Lu Zhenyu.
“Aunt Song, I’m on my way home. How’s Tong Tong now?”
“The fever has gone down!” Teacher Song sighed, “it just faded. I took my temperature. 37.6, no problem.”
“Well, that’s good.” Chen Xu’s heart fell down, and instead of asking Teacher Song about calling Lu Zhenyu, she only said, “then give him some water. Don’t cover himself with a thick quilt. I’ll be home in a minute.”
“Well, don’t worry. The child is all right. Slow down.” Teacher Song said.
After hanging up the phone, the car was quiet again. Chen Xu felt that she should say something. She said to Zhang Qian, “Children are most worried when they get sick and adults are scared when the child gets sick.”
Zhang Qian nodded in agreement.
Both of them were silent. There was silence in the car except for the rustling of wheels.
Zhang Qian suddenly spoke again. He asked Chen Xu, “Was he your ex-husband who called you just now?”
