Rebirth to a Military Marriage: Good Morning Chief - Chapter 1858
Chapter 1858: Stop It
Jiajia, who had seen her parents fighting for the first time, was stunned. Before she could be afraid, her mom had won against her dad. Her dad was like a tortoise when her mom pressed him down such that his face was stuck to the cold wall. “Wei De, let me tell you. Don’t think that ten years are enough for your Wei family to wear down my temper. I just felt that we’re a family and thus didn’t want to mind it too much. Leading a good life is more important. If you continue to be this overboard, I don’t mind letting you think of how I was already a deputy battalion commander before I retired!”
She was different from Wei De. Wei De was promoted to company commander due to his relationship with Zhai Hua. When Zhai Hua was in the army, she had relied on her actual strength and military merits to get promoted. One was superior in strength while the other wasn’t worthy of his name. When the two of them fought, there was no suspense as to who would win, alright?
“Zhai Hua, good for you!” He had thrown his face in front of Qiao Nan previously. Who knew that at this time, he fell in front of his own daughter? They were about to celebrate the new year. Wei De almost had the illusion that everyone in the world was against him and that he could no longer lead a good life.
Zhai Hua loosened her grip on Wei De’s hands and feet and adjusted her clothes. “Of course. Everyone in the Zhai family is good. Wei De, I finally understand why you only nag about wanting to be a regiment commander every day in front of me but there’s no improvement in your performance in the army.”
It was easy to tell if one was an expert when they made a move.
Zhai Hua herself was an outstanding soldier to begin with. Even if she had retired for more than ten years, some situations would never change. Zhai Hua knew about this all along. Judging from the situation just now, to be honest, Zhai Hua no longer lamented that Wei De’s fortune wasn’t good. She was no longer anxious that he had no opportunity to showcase his talent.
What a joke!
Whoever dared to make Wei De a regiment commander was just treating the entire army as a joke. Even the position of a company commander was too high for Wei De, let alone a regiment commander. If Wei De was given the position of a platoon leader, it was definitely not because of his capabilities but the number of years he had spent in the army.
When Wei De annoyed her and Mother Wei nagged her in the past, Zhai Hua had occasional hesitations if she should help Wei De again. Even if she didn’t follow the path of the Zhai family, she still had some connections and could help him achieve his goal.
At this time, the idea had completely disappeared from Zhai Hua’s heart. It was nothing to help Wei De. However, she had to be responsible to the soldiers under Wei De. She suspected that the soldiers wouldn’t have the potential to develop themselves if they had Wei De as an officer. If all the good seedlings were destroyed by Wei De, then she would be doing something sorry to the party, the country, the people, and those soldiers who loved the army.
“Okay, are you going to leave, or do you want to continue to stay?” If he stayed, she would certainly give him face. On the contrary, if Wei De wanted to leave, she wasn’t going to make him stay, lest everyone feel uncomfortable. The premise was that if Wei De wanted to leave, he would be the only one leaving.
Initially, Zhai Hua wanted to let Jiajia choose. Jiajia was a teen now and had the right to choose. It was just that when she saw Wei De pulling Jiajia by force to leave, it was obvious that Jiajia was reluctant but she didn’t dare to resist Wei De out of filial piety. This made Zhai Hua furious.
If she had been like Jiajia when she was young, she wouldn’t have married Wei De and she wouldn’t have Jiajia as a daughter now. Her daughter’s performance made Zhai Hua realize that she was too pampered by her family when she was still a daughter in the Zhai family that she was so bad-tempered now.
On the contrary, no one favored and pampered Jiajia aside from her, the mother. As such, Jiajia became more sensible and filial but also more sensitive. She wasn’t sure how other children became sensible. In her opinion, Jiajia wasn’t born to be sensible. She and Wei De didn’t have this excellent gene to pass to Jiajia. Zhai Hua felt heartache when she knew that circumstances had shaped Jiajia to be this sensible.
It’s fine that she didn’t get to lead the life as guaranteed before her marriage with Wei De after marrying him. In the end, her daughter led a life that was even worse than hers when she was young. So what’s the point of her holding on for so many years? She even felt that she had suffered so many grievances all these years. Was everything purely her own doing?
It was precisely because of this that when Qiao Nan saw Zhai Hua, she could obviously feel the anger and dissatisfaction from Zhai Hua.
At this time, Wei De, who had returned home, shared what had happened with Zhai Hua. Mother Wei was so angry that her eyes were about to spit fire. “I asked you to take care of her a long time ago, but you just refused to listen. See? Now, she even dares to climb above your head! That woman is old and bad-tempered. She and her family are white-eyed wolves who don’t know how to be grateful. What sin has our Wei family committed to have such a daughter-in-law? Look how I’ll take care of her when she returns home!”
Mother Wei knew that she was Zhai Hua’s mother-in-law. No matter how she argued with her, Zhai Hua could only respect her and not do anything. Otherwise, Zhai Hua would just be waiting for everyone to curse and swear at her. However, her son couldn’t do this. Both of them were equals. Once they started a fight, her son would be on the losing end. “Ah De, listen to me this time around. I’ll help you manage your wife. Women really couldn’t be pampered.”
“It’s the New Year’s Eve. Can you mother-and-son pair just stop?!” Mother Wei kept saying how she was going to take care of Zhai Hua and how she was going to punish Jiajia to make Zhai Hua feel terrible. She said that only if she cut Zhai Hua’s flesh would Zhai Hua feel the pain and be afraid. Upon hearing how ruthless his partner was and how she was going to lay a hand on their granddaughter, Father Wei became angry and used an ashtray to hit Mother Wei’s body hard.
Mother Wei, who was beaten, raised her eyebrows. “Who am I doing this for? It’s all for Ah De. Is Ah De your son or Zhai Hua your daughter? Wretched old man. Don’t be so foolish!”
Father Wei laughed coldly and looked at Wei De. “It’s because I still treat him as a son that I disallow you to do so. Have you been leading such a good life that you became confused? Don’t feel afraid only when there’s no turning back.” If they really reached that stage, his wife would think that she had been helping their son, but their son would blame his wife for ruining his home and future!
“What do you mean?” Mother Wei wasn’t willing to take this lying down. “Zhai Hua has stepped on Ah De now. You’re still helping other people’s daughter?”
