Chapter 2006: It Was All Over
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“There are no hurdles in this world that can’t be passed. I hope you can be happy in the future and meet a man who truly treats you well again.”
Although he had taken his childhood promise seriously, didn’t he also get married and have a son? Zhai Hua was not yet fifty years old and still had a few decades in her life. As such, Zhai Hua shouldn’t stand still because of a failed marriage and waste her remaining time.
Zhai Hua rubbed her elbow against his in an exaggerated manner and had a look of disdain. “Yes, I know you’re living a happy life now. Don’t agitate me, this loner. Don’t forget that you have a son and I have a daughter. I don’t have so many thoughts about marriage. I’ve regretted so much that I left the army early. Now, I am relieved. I’m not going to do something so troublesome. However, I can still be a veteran soldier and make some contribution to the army.”
Tian Dong nodded. “As long as you’re happy, you can do that. Goodbye.” Goodbye, my childhood. Goodbye, my first love.
He was really returning to his family this time.
Zhai Hua rubbed her lips lightly and her frowning eyebrows loosened. “Goodbye. You have to be happy too.” Many things were over in the past. She couldn’t think about it or regret it. Otherwise, she would lead a more painful life.
“I’m already very happy now.” Tian Dong entered the customs with his luggage. After returning this time, if there were any projects in the country in the future, he could send someone else from the company over and didn’t need to make a trip back personally. This was because the knot in his heart had been untied.
“Mom, you’re back.” When Zhai Hua returned home, not only had Jiajia returned from school, but she had also finished her meal. “Mom, you haven’t eaten, right? Grandma left you this. It’s still warm. Eat it quickly.” She knew that her birth mother had sent that uncle from the other day to the airport. Jiajia even knew that that uncle had a son who was much younger than her. More importantly, that uncle was childhood playmates with her mom.
It turned out that that tall and handsome uncle had such a good relationship with their family.
“Oh, alright. I’ll wash my hands first.” Zhai Hua’s reaction was a little slow. After putting down the car keys, she went to the toilet and washed her hands. Then, she looked at herself in the mirror for a very long time.
“Mom, hurry up and have your meal. Why are you looking at yourself in the mirror? Mom, since when did you like to look pretty?” In the past, before her parents got a divorce, her mom never looked at herself in the mirror. Indeed, now that she was back at her own family, did her mom’s habits change?
Zhai Hua rubbed her face and smiled at Jiajia. “Alright, I’ll listen to you. Let’s eat.”
Jiajia leaned on Zhai Hua. “Mom, what’s wrong with you today?” It was a little weird and different from usual.
“What’s wrong with me?” Zhai Hua raised her eyebrows and smiled. “Didn’t you ask me to eat? Are you planning to let me chat with you while I eat? Okay, shouldn’t you go read some books now?”
Jiajia blinked. “Mom, did you forget that I have my middle school examinations tomorrow?” As such, she left school today earlier than usual. There was only one activity in the afternoon, which was to get familiarized with her examination hall and find her seat. The first day she finished the middle school examinations was also the day her uncle was marrying her aunt. “Mom, are you really alright?”
Didn’t her mom just send a childhood playmate to the airport?
“Mom, did Dad trouble you again behind grandma’s back?” It was possible that her dad hasn’t given up yet and wanted to get back together with her mom. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have gotten into a car accident earlier and be hospitalized for a few days. Her teacher couldn’t help but worry about her. She had only transferred over in the second semester of her third year but had gotten into a car accident before the middle school examinations. There were so many unexpected changes.
After a few bites, a small bowl of rice landed in Zhai Hua’s stomach. Zhai Hua looked at her and said, “Don’t spout nonsense. Your dad didn’t come to find me. Have you forgotten about my physical strength? Between your dad and me, the general phenomenon of strong men and weak women doesn’t exist. Your dad can’t win a fight against me. Scold me? I can’t be bothered to argue with him. Ever since that, I haven’t seen your dad. I hope your dad knows how to be a better person in the future. If he continues to be such a fool at this age, he might burden you then.”
Speaking of Wei De, Zhai Hua slowly recovered herself. She rarely heard about Wei De recently. It was difficult for Wei De to appear in front of her again. All she knew was that after their divorce, Wei De’s life was getting worse.
Wasn’t it just a divorce? Although she and Jiajia left Wei De, he still had his parents, wife, and son by his side. As long as he led his life seriously, even if the Wei family couldn’t enjoy a good life, it would not be too bad at least.
Who knew that when she heard about the Wei family’s situation after their divorce, Zhai Hua couldn’t help but doubt if that Wei family she heard about was the one she had lived with for more than ten years? It was also the first time she realized that the Wei family’s dependence on her had reached such an extent.
No wonder Wei De would rather commit suicide to force her not to file this divorce lawsuit.
Marrying the right woman could save a man from fighting hard for ten years. Zhai Hua always felt that the Zhai family didn’t help Wei De much. Even if she was marrying into a family of lower status, the situation between her and Wei De was far from that of an ugly duckling man’s. However, now that things had developed to this point, Zhai Hua truly understood that even though no one from the Zhai family really helped Wei De, Wei De had relied on her so much that the Wei family’s quality of life had improved tremendously.
“Then, what’s wrong with you?” All was good as long as her dad didn’t approach them. After being in a car accident and upon thinking about the existence of her birth father, Wei De, again, Jiajia was more or less a little psychologically scarred.
Zhai Hua smiled again. “Didn’t you say that you’re having the middle school examinations tomorrow? Don’t think about the rest too much. Try your best for the examinations. Of course, don’t give yourself too much pressure. I’m already an adult. Let’s not say nothing happened to me now. Even if something happens, I will solve it on my own. If I can’t solve it and I need someone to discuss with, you, as my only daughter, can’t escape even if you want to. In recent years, so many things had happened. It’s normal for me to be distracted at times. Little housekeeper, remember to rest well tonight and get enough sleep so that you can take the examinations well tomorrow.”
“Alright.” Jiajia felt more at ease and stopped asking her mom what was wrong.
Miao Jing wanted Jiajia to relax after having her meal and digest the contents in her stomach before sleeping.
