Rebirth to a Military Marriage: Good Morning Chief - Chapter 1857
Chapter 1857: Angry Face
She didn’t need to pretend about those dishes at all. Based on the taste, she would give a score of ninety-nine, if not one hundred.
Upon seeing that Qiao Nan was feeling unwell, Jiajia, who loved Qiao Nan’s dishes a lot, became nervous. What if her future aunt became tired from cooking dishes for her? She would feel very embarrassed.
“No, it should be because of the wind just now. Nothing’s wrong.” Qiao Nan waved her hands. She didn’t expect a small action of hers to attract so many people’s attention. “The weather’s cold now. Let’s eat quickly. If the dishes turn cold, they wouldn’t taste good anymore.”
“Yes, everyone, let’s eat.” Miao Jing gave Qiao Nan face and agreed with her words. “Jiajia likes to eat this, right? Here. Eat more so that you can gain some meat. Jiajia, we can’t learn from the young ladies outside. Why lose weight? A girl should have some meat on her body to look good. Most importantly, she would be in good health.”
“Thanks, grandma. Grandma, eat more too.” At this moment in her maternal grandma’s house, Jiajia felt that she was the happiest child in the world. It turned out that not only her mother treated her well. In reality, there were a lot of relatives in her maternal grandma’s house who treated her as their precious child, doting on and pampering her. She was also a princess at home.
As soon as the meal started, the atmosphere of the Zhai family became warmer again. It was as if the people around the table were a real family and there were no outsiders at all.
The Zhai family ate happily. However, Wei De, who was ‘chased away’, was black-faced throughout the journey. He drove back to his home, where his parents, ‘sister’, and ‘nephew’ were.
“Oh, it’s almost nine. Ah De, why are you back at this timing? Didn’t you say that you would be celebrating the new year with your in-laws?” There were two days to celebrate the new year, but Ah De came back at this timing. Could it be that he returned to see her as he was afraid she would miss him dearly?
As she thought of this, Mother Wei became extremely touched. “Ah De, isn’t it just a few days? You usually stay in the army every day. Even if I miss you, I have gotten through it. Don’t be like this in the future. It’s unsafe and cold to drive in the middle of the night.”
“Don’t mention this!” Wei De felt unlucky. “Mom, is there anything to eat at home? I’m hungry. Prepare more food for me.”
“What? You haven’t eaten yet? Wait for a while. I’ll prepare some dishes for you.” Mother Wei turned around and pulled Wei Xiaomei into the kitchen to prepare food for Wei De. It was New Year’s Eve, so there were a lot of ingredients at home. The ready-made dishes were prepared quickly for Wei De. “Ah De, hurry up and eat. Don’t hurt your stomach.”
Wei De gobbled his food until his belly showed. He put down his chopsticks and said, “Mom, this is too infuriating. The old couple from the Zhai family is back and Zhai Hua felt that she has a strong backing. Mom, you’re right. There’s no need to treat women well. They are all just wretches. I should be fiercer. I compromised and let her return to her family to celebrate the new year. She’s about to forget that she’s no longer a daughter of the Zhai family but a daughter-in-law of the Wei family!”
He had wanted to pull Zhai Hua and Jiajia back to scare Zhai Sheng. Who knew that Zhai Hua didn’t cooperate and even said that Zhai Sheng did right since he went overboard first? Zhai Sheng’s mind was unclear and he was falling head over heels for Qiao Nan. Zhai Sheng helped put in a good word for Qiao Nan and ostracized him, the brother-in-law. They were both men, so he could still understand this.
However, who was Zhai Hua? Zhai Hua was his wife!
No matter what happened under what circumstances, Zhai Hua should stand by his side unconditionally and help him. Who knew that Zhai Hua would favor an outsider like Qiao Nan and not help her husband? When she knew that Zhai Sheng had chased him away, not only was Zhai Hua not angry, but she even agreed with Zhai Sheng and let him go!
In reality, Wei De wasn’t the kind of person to give up so easily.
Of course, the best result was that Zhai Sheng apologized to him and begged him to stay. Otherwise, he was going to leave together with his wife and daughter and return to the Wei family. He wanted the old couple from the Zhai family to lose the rare chance of reuniting with their granddaughter.
Who asked them not to give birth to a good son? After giving birth to a son, they didn’t discipline him properly, and he ended up being so rude to him, the brother-in-law. Serves them right for not having the joy to interact with their family. He wanted them to pay the price because of their son, Zhai Sheng.
Zhai Hua was an adult and had the right to choose her own behavior. However, Jiajia was still young. Even if he couldn’t bring Zhai Hua away, he wanted to bring the daughter whom he didn’t place much importance on back. He gathered that compared to Zhai Hua, the daughter, the old couple from the Zhai family cherished Jiajia, the granddaughter, more.
In short, if someone made him feel uncomfortable, he was going to leave the Zhai family with no chance to celebrate the new year properly!
Wei De always had the final say in the Wei family. Nobody dared to oppose his words and everyone would just implement what he said. It was these days that made Wei De forget what kind of wife he had married and what type of situation his in-laws were in.
Seeing that Wei De was using force on his daughter to pull her away and was even hurting her with malicious words, Zhai Hua became furious. In the past, Wei De had indeed valued Wei Wei, the nephew, more. However, on the surface, he was still alright toward Jiajia. As such, Zhai Hua didn’t throw a temper at Wei De.
She couldn’t possibly say that she hoped Wei De would treat their daughter better. If she really said so, Wei De would just say that Jiajia was a daughter and not a son and that he was a father. When his daughter grew up, it wouldn’t be too appropriate for him to get too close to Jiajia. As such, she shouldn’t always compare Jiajia with Wei Wei.
In the past, Zhai Hua had tolerated Wei De’s words. However, today, Zhai Hua could no longer tolerate his words and actions. Generally, women were in a weaker position if they wanted to use violence on men as they couldn’t win in terms of strength.
However, who was Zhai Hua? When Zhai Hua was in the army, she was a female officer. She was someone who could knock down a hundred recruits.
Wei De had successfully been promoted from a recruit. After he became a company commander, he was negligent in training and only thought of how much further he could climb up the ranks. Zhai Hua was different. After Zhai Hua retired from the army, she missed the army more and more while at home.
Wei De didn’t spend a lot of time at home. Coupled with the fact that Jiajia was attending school after she grew up, Zhai Hua’s time at home alone became particularly long. But no one knew that Zhai Hua had been doing physical training.
When couples lay a hand on each other, the wife would normally be subjected to domestic violence as her strength couldn’t be compared to the husband’s. However, once Wei De made a move, Zhai Hua successfully pressed Wei De down within three moves.
