Rebirth: Ghost Exorciser - Chapter 1744
1744 Chi Shuyan’s Dejection
Chi Shuyan’s expression was indescribable. Father Chi sent his son-in-law away. Taking advantage of his absence, he exhorted his wife to be considerate of her husband.
Chi Shuyan: …
Her father’s words were a huge blow to her. Chi Shuyan was a bit dazed as she ate dinner. Her father would never have said something like that before; he might have even praised her for doing the right thing, since men had to do more… But now, her father was completely protective of Qi Zhenbai. Chi Shuyan wondered if the man had drugged her father with some kind of potion. Her father’s attitude had actually changed so much. He actually changed from wanting to protect her to wanting her to become a good wife and mother?
Chi Shuyan sighed and sat by the window in the bedroom. Thinking of a certain man surnamed Qi, she couldn’t help but grit her teeth.
Qi Zhenbai and Father Chi didn’t talk for long. When Qi Zhenbai returned to the bedroom, he saw his wife sighing and looking like she had nothing to live for. He subconsciously thought that his father-in-law had said something to his wife just now to make her unhappy.
Qi Zhenbai wasn’t going to let his wife dwell on it, so he simply took out a pile of blank wedding invitations to distract her. He said in a deep voice, “Wife, we’ll have the banquet in a few days. Write down whom you want to invite, then leave them with me.”
When Chi Shuyan saw the wedding invitations, her mood improved a little. However, she was a little unhappy at her father telling her to serve this man like a good wife and mother. Now, she found him a little displeasing to the eye, so she deliberately snorted and ignored him.
However, Chi Shuyan couldn’t help but probe, “Have you been getting along well with my father lately? The more my father looks at you, the more he likes you. Conversely, he finds me, his daughter, more displeasing.”
Her words were filled with jealousy, which made Qi Zhenbai raise his eyebrows. When he heard that his wife was jealous of Father Chi, Qi Zhenbai’s eyes lit up with a smile. Father Chi was finding him more and more pleasing to the eye, which made Qi Zhenbai inwardly heave a sigh of relief. His efforts to curry favor with his father-in-law these days hadn’t been in vain.
He didn’t reply immediately, but sat opposite his wife and sized her up. There was a faint smile in the depths of his eyes, and she could tell that he was in a good mood at that moment. It was rare to see his wife jealous, although the other party was his father-in-law.
Qi Zhenbai raised his eyebrows and said indifferently, “Wife, are you jealous of me?”
Chi Shuyan choked, but then remembered that she was leaving tomorrow. She hadn’t discussed it with this man yet, so no matter how unhappy she was, she couldn’t offend him. She simply nodded and said, “Yes, yes… I’m jealous of you. Why is my dad so good to you now? I now wonder if you’re my dad’s true son, and he picked me up from somewhere.”
Qi Zhenbai almost choked at his wife’s shocking words. He coughed softly a few times and immediately said seriously, “Don’t talk nonsense!”
Chi Shuyan wasn’t afraid of the man. She snorted coldly and continued, “How am I talking nonsense? It’s the truth. You don’t know what my dad said to me when he sent you away just now.” Seeing the man’s curious expression, Chi Shuyan choked and could only say unhappily, “My dad said to do small things on my own in the future and not trouble you. He also said that you’re earning money outside, so I should be considerate of you.”
As she spoke, her tone was a bit aggrieved and she couldn’t help but act cute; Qi Zhenbai found it both pitiful and funny. At the same time, there was some surprise in his eyes. He never expected his father-in-law to be so good to him now. He was really flattered.
Seeing that his wife was still unhappy, Qi Zhenbai hurriedly picked her up to sit on his lap, then coaxed her. “Don’t worry; we’ll live as we always have after the wedding. I’m a full-grown man; you don’t have to take care of me. I’ll take care of you more in the future!”
After listening to the man, Chi Shuyan was naturally very pleased, but she didn’t show it on her face. It was the man in front of her who took the initiative to ask again, “What’s wrong? Are you unhappy?”
Speaking of which, Qi Zhenbai didn’t have much patience for others or even himself, but he was so patient when it came to his wife.
Moreover, he wasn’t good at coaxing people. His earlier words were already extraordinary. Seeing that his wife still didn’t speak, he panicked a little.
Chi Shuyan rolled her eyes and suddenly said, “If you promise me one thing, I’ll forgive you. How about that?”
After coming clean, Chi Shuyan still felt some pressure. Given her understanding of the man in front of her, he definitely wouldn’t be happy about her going out for several days. Otherwise, he would go with her. Unfortunately, he would definitely be very busy these days. Not only would he be busy with company matters, he would also be busy with the wedding banquet. How could he be free?
It was indeed as she thought. Qi Zhenbai was worried about her not coming back for a few days. If he wasn’t busy, he could still spare time to go with her, but he had a lot on his plate recently. Now that Father Chi was also around, Qi Zhenbai had to treat his father-in-law well no matter what.
Seeing the man’s eyes get darker and darker, Chi Shuyan couldn’t guess what he was thinking at all. Seeing that he didn’t say anything, she was a little anxious. She tugged at the man’s fingers and wheedled softly, “Husband, just this once. I’ll only go this once. I’ll be back in two days at most. Besides, I’ll be a married woman soon after I come back, okay? Let me go!”
Seeing that the man still didn’t say anything and his face was calm and expressionless, Chi Shuyan deliberately continued, “I’m so young, yet I’m marrying you…” She still wanted to wheedle more to soften the man’s heart, but the man gritted his teeth and squeezed out the word “okay.” Chi Shuyan was delighted.
But joy turned into sorrow. Although the man agreed, when the two of them tossed and turned that night, he tormented her terribly, intentionally or otherwise. Chi Shuyan didn’t eat much for dinner, and she was tormented until her stomach growled, but the man didn’t let her go. According to him, she wouldn’t be home for two days, so she owed him two nights. Naturally, she had to make it up to him!
Chi Shuyan was so angry when she heard this that she wanted to vomit blood. Who knew if it was because this man had tormented her too much tonight and used too much strength, but after this interlude, her stomach kept throbbing a little. It was only after she circulated her spiritual energy that the pain in her stomach faded. Because she was too tired, she didn’t even have the strength to speak after circulating her spiritual energy. She slept until noon!
