Chapter 989: To Lose Face
Jiang Yao giggled.
She really did reach out and touch his abdomen like a hooligan.
His abdomen felt good to the touch.
She lingered around for a few more pats until she thought that he seemed to react to it.
Then, she quickly withdrew her hand and rushed back to the room.
“You only care about lighting the fire, not extinguishing it.” Lu Xingzhi snorted unhappily.
Then, he grabbed the mop and went to the balcony.
He thought about how his wife would wait for him that night!
By the time Lu Xingzhi had tidied the house, it was already past four in the afternoon.
Then, he told Jiang Yao to get ready to go out.
The two of them did not expect to run into such a coincidence.
However, when the couple opened the door and were about to go out, there was a person in the opposite unit.
A pregnant woman stood at the door; she looked to be four to five months along.
When she saw movement, the pregnant woman turned her head to look at them.
She said, “Sergeant Lu This is your wife”
“Yes,” Lu Xingzhi replied, but he had no intention of introducing two of them.
Jiang Yao smiled at the woman.
They were about to go downstairs when the womans mother-in-law spoke in an impatient tone.
“Why are you fumbling around Dont your legs work Youre even more useless than an old woman like me!”
“Mom, I just wanted to say hello to Sergeant Lu and his wife,” the woman explained in a gentle voice; she sounded a little aggrieved.
The mother-in-law walked out of the house and glanced at the two people who were headed downstairs.
She pulled her daughter-in-law through the door while she scolded, “Why are you in such a hurry to say hello to someone when he doesnt even want to greet you Youre always making me lose face.”
Then, the door slammed shut.
“Lets go.” Lu Xingzhi was already used to it, so he was not affected in the slightest.
He held Jiang Yaos hand, and they went downstairs.
Jiang Yao understood what the mother-in-law had meant.
Lu Xingzhi was only a sergeant, but the major was a battalion commander.
Therefore, Lu Xingzhi should have been the one who greeted the battalion commanders family first.
Those with a lower status should take the initiative to welcome someone of higher status; those with higher ranks would lose their status if they were to speak first.
The older woman had put on airs like an official mother by the way she spoke and treated other people.
“I wont stay here even if Im transferred to the Special Forces after the New Year.
It doesnt matter if they want to stay here forever; we only need to endure it for a little bit more time.” Lu Xingzhi was afraid that Jiang Yao would be unhappy, so he comforted her.
Ive endured people like that.
Furthermore, were different families, so they have nothing to do with me.
As long as you treat me well, and Mom and Dad treat me well!” Jiang Yao smiled lightly.
Then, she moved closer to Lu Xingzhis ear and said in a low voice, “Before I came here, Mom gave us a big red envelope.”
“Yeah, I know.
You are trying to remind me that I have to give you a red envelope during the New Year,” Lu Xingzhi teased happily.
Jiang Yao shook her head proudly, but she did not say anything.
The smile in her eyes betrayed her mood.
When they arrived at Colonel Lins house, he was not at home yet; only his wife was home.
“Oh, youre here! My husband will be back in a short while.” Mrs Lin welcomed them into her home and brought them slippers that they could wear.
“Wheres Xiao Wei He should be on winter vacation, right” Jiang Yao asked when she did not see Xiao Wei.
