Chapter 55: Speculation
Zhao Zhuangzong was speculating the circumstances.
How long had Lu Xiaoxiao and Jiang Yao been here Did they see anything from the outside Did he do anything overly affectionate earlier that would cause any misunderstanding
Then, he lifted his speculative glance at Lu Xiaoxiaos innocent smile.
She was still scanning around the restaurant curiously at the moment.
Zhao Zhuangzong assumed that the sloppy and clumsy Lu Xiaoxiao wouldnt notice anything peculiar and offbeat.
As for Jiang Yao…
Zhao Zhuangzong squinted and pondered.
Although Jiang Yao was Lu Yuqings sister-in-law and they had interacted several times because of their connection, Jiang Yao had always been a sullen and reserved person.
He couldnt figure out her temperament and personality, and he wasnt sure if she had noticed anything.
In his opinion, Jiang Yao was not an easy character to be up against, unlike Lu Xiaoxiao.
She was not as foolishly innocent as Lu Xiaoxiao was.
After all, Jiang Yao was a top student in school, and the intelligence level of a person who excelled academically was exceptionally high.
Besides, although she and Lu Xingzhi spent very little time as husband and wife while they were married, Lu Xingzhi was very protective of and affectionate to her.
It could be concluded that Jiang Yao was a sophisticated and astute woman, and that she had some tricks up her sleeve.
When he thought of this, Zhao Zhuangzong began to worry.
Did Jiang Yao see anything Did she figure something out
Zhao Zhuangzong couldnt find the slightest hint of answers to the questions based on Jiang Yaos external expression.
Jiang Yao was being her usual self.
She greeted and smiled politely at him.
Then, she just stood there quietly without any change of expression on her face.
At this moment, Zhao Zhuangzong felt that Jiang Yao and Lu Xingzhi were very much alike.
“Brother, since youre done, why dont you let me and Jiang Yao take your seat, please” Lu Xiaoxiao blurted out, anxiously impatient to chase him away.
“Were so hungry! Pretty please”
At her remark, Zhao Zhuangzong nodded with a smile and said, “Okay, your meal is on me, order whatever you like.
Enjoy your meal.” Then, he stood up and strode towards the cashier next to the entrance.
Jiang Yao couldnt hear what Zhao Zhuangzong was saying to the cashier due to the noisy ambiance, but she could see that both he and the cashier were looking their way.
He must have been saying that hed pay for their meals as well.
It seemed that Zhao Zhuangzong knew the owner of the restaurant, or in other words, he was a regular here that even the staff knew him.
Hence, Zhao Zhuangzong could settle their bill before they had even ordered, regardless of how much it would cost.
After their table was cleaned, Lu Xiaoxiao urged Jiang Yao to sit down.
She said with a proud smile, “See, I made the right decision to dine in here, didnt I Brother-in-law even paid for us! Hes so generous! Were so lucky!”
“Yup, youre right,” Jiang Yao answered with a mysterious smile.
Everything flooded back into her mind—Zhao Zhuangzong dining in with the pregnant woman, as well as the way he placed his hand tenderly on the pregnant womans belly.
If she hadnt come here and witnessed this, she would have hardly remembered this incident before rebirth.
Jiang Yao thought that the only person in the world who would believe in Zhao Zhuangzongs nonsense was a silly naive girl like Lu Xiaoxiao.
It would still be believable that Zhao Zhuangzong would dine alone in this restaurant even if he had a wife.
However, would a normal pregnant woman come to this restaurant alone
