Chapter 1535: The Adulterer Was Chen Jun
It was precisely because of that that she felt there wasn’t anything wrong with her not working and spending Zhou Zheng’s money each month. In fact, she was obliged to do so. If not for her, how would Zhou Zheng get such a good job? His job was all thanks to her. It was fine for her to take all his money, let alone letting her spend a little.
“Fine. Then, get a divorce.” Ding Jiayi didn’t have anything else to say. “How big a matter is it that Zhou Zheng slapped you? You went behind Zhou Zheng’s back to find another man outside. That’s the real and the most serious problem. Did Zhou Zheng ever touch a strand of your hair after you two have been married for so many years? I study less than you, but I’m still able to understand clearly the order of matters. Zhou Zheng treated you well. If you didn’t provoke him, would he have slapped you? You asked for this slap yourself. I feel that he should have slapped you!”
Qiao Zijin dared to have an affair outside. Who else would Zhou Zheng hit if not her?
Even if Ding Jiayi was Qiao Zijin’s mother, she had to stand on Zhou Zheng’s side and speak a good word for Zhou Zheng at this point in time.
“You… you talked about Zhou Zheng and said I deserve to get slapped. Are you my mother or Zhou Zheng’s mother? Why are you putting in a good word for him?” Qiao Zijin was so angry that she cried. She just wanted a loved one to be by her side supporting her now. Was that too much to ask for?
Ding Jiayi slapped her thigh. “I’m not going to talk to you. My food will be burned soon.” Ding Jiayi turned off the fire before continuing. “It doesn’t matter whose mother I am. You only know how to cry now. People from the courts have already called, but you don’t want to apologize. You don’t think that you’re in the wrong, and you don’t want to get a divorce. You don’t want so many things. I don’t know how else I can help you. Hurry back to Ping Cheng. This matter has to be resolved. I’m guessing even if you don’t go back and appear in court, the court would rule that the both of you are divorced.”
“Would the court not let me get a divorce with Zhou Zheng if I go back?”
“Silly child. Haven’t I said it? If you don’t want a divorce, you can tell Zhou Zheng. What use is there to tell me?” Ding Jiayi couldn’t wait to stretch out her leg and kick on Qiao Zijin’s buttocks hard.
This horrible child. The older she got, the more foolish she became. She couldn’t even compare to a person like her, who didn’t read too many books.
Ding Jiayi had already said so. Qiao Zijin didn’t have any other choice. At this moment, she could only listen to Ding Jiayi’s words and hurry back to Ping Cheng to resolve this matter.
She was afraid that it would be like what Ding Jiayi said. If she didn’t return to Ping Cheng and appear in court, the court would rule that the both of them were divorced. That would be terrible.
Regardless of whether it worked or not, she had to return to Ping Cheng and see if it was possible to beg Zhou Zheng not to get a divorce.
The moment she sent Qiao Zijin away, Ding Jiayi relaxed her shoulders exaggeratedly. She felt that she had heaved a big sigh of relief. “I really don’t understand. She was such a good kid when she was young. Why did she become like this after growing up?” Not only couldn’t she compare to Qiao Nan, but she couldn’t even compare to an average individual.
If news of their married daughter having an affair behind the husband’s back became widespread, this family would definitely become the laughingstock of everyone in the quad.
It could be said that the reason why Ding Jiayi made up her mind and insisted to live in the capital instead of continuing to live in the Ping Cheng quad was because of this.
Qiao Zijin had stayed in her mother’s house for two months and it looked as if she didn’t have the intention to return to the Zhou family. The neighbors’ questions became sharper. In the beginning, Ding Jiayi could still find some excuse to help Qiao Zijin out. After all the excuses had been used, Ding Jiayi couldn’t find any other excuse to use when others asked again.
She was worried that Qiao Zijin’s affair would be exposed in the quad sooner or later.
Rather than staying in the quad to become everyone’s laughingstock again, Ding Jiayi would rather come over to the capital and rely on Qiao Nan to arrange a place to live for herself.
The eldest daughter whom she pampered the most was incompetent. She even had to rely on her relationship with her youngest daughter to lead a better life than an average person. Instead, the youngest daughter whom she didn’t like since she was young led a better life day by day and had become a big shot.
One kept being a laughingstock while the other continued to bask in glory. Even a fool knew how to choose between these two daughters.
Even if her mother-daughter relationship with Qiao Nan wasn’t good and there wasn’t a way to recover it, it was alright. As long as she was still Qiao Nan’s mother, Qiao Nan had to provide for her. At the very most, their relationship would remain as it was.
Nothing was more important than her leading a good life!
At this critical moment, Ding Jiayi resolutely chose to side with Qiao Nan so that she could avoid her relationship with Qiao Zijin. She didn’t want everyone to laugh at her for not knowing how to teach her daughter and for teaching Qiao Zijin to be so shameless.
Zhai Sheng knew about it the moment Qiao Zijin left the capital. In order to make Qiao Nan feel at ease, Zhai Sheng told her the situation. “You can sleep peacefully this time around. She wouldn’t be disturbing you for a while.”
“But I’m worried that if Zhou Zheng really gets a divorce with her, she would simply follow Ding Jiayi and stay in the capital. She would even refuse to go back to Ping Cheng. If that happens, wouldn’t I have more trouble? Brother Zhai, do you think I’m adding trouble instead? If Qiao Zijin really gets a divorce, do you think she will be so thick-skinned to ask me to help her another time and find her a second husband?”
Qiao Nan knew that the possibility of this was very high. Thus, she felt a headache.
Zhai Sheng smiled. “No, Qiao Zijin has already found her love. Both of them had an affair. Qiao Zijin can’t keep her marriage any longer. Chen Jun and his wife still looked fine on the surface. Based on Qiao Zijin’s temper, how would she be able to tolerate such a difference? Furthermore, Qiao Zijin still seemed to be obsessed with Chen Jun. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have betrayed Zhou Zheng for him.”
Qiao Nan widened her eyes. “Are you for real? The man Qiao Zijin had outside is Chen Jun? That same Chen Jun in the past? That Chen Jun who later broke up with Qiao Zijin?”
After knowing this answer, Qiao Nan didn’t know what she should say as well.
In the past, Qiao Zijin had double-crossed her and married into the Chen family by being pregnant with Chen Jun’s child. Six months later, they gave birth to a son. Who knew that after a few years, Qiao Zijin would find another man behind Chen Jun’s back and Chen Jun had caught them in bed? She heard that the situation back then was quite chaotic.
