Rebirth: Ghost Exorciser - Chapter 1772
1772 Chance Encounter (1)
In the evening, Qi Zhenbai took his wife to the restaurant he had booked for dinner. This restaurant was very famous in the capital. It was a French restaurant. The decor and layout all had the characteristics of a foreign restaurant, and the design was very unique and romantic.
The young couple sat in a booth by the window. It was rare for Qi Zhenbai, this cold and inflexible man, to know how to be romantic. Chi Shuyan was in an especially good mood. While she might not be able to eat her fill in this restaurant, she never stopped smiling as she looked at the candlelight dinner.
“By the way, you remembered today is Valentine’s Day?” She knew her man the best, and would acknowledge that he was a very reliable and outstanding husband who was good at everything, but who didn’t have a romantic bone in his body.
She hadn’t thought anything of Valentine’s Day a few days ago and thought that this man felt that it was a holiday celebrated only in other countries. Last night, Qi Hao even called her and said that it was best to let his cousin know about a holiday like Valentine’s Day. His brother had never celebrated foreign holidays before, like Valentine’s Day or Christmas, and was especially rigid and serious.
So, Chi Shuyan really thought that Valentine’s Day wasn’t meant to be. Who would have thought that this man would take the initiative to ask her in the afternoon how she wanted to celebrate it today? She felt that this man had most likely been guided by an expert, and it was very likely Brother Feng.
Needless to say, her guess was right. Before Feng Yuanlin called him last night, Qi Zhenbai had indeed never thought about Valentine’s Day. It was this childhood friend who said that Valentine’s Day was important to women, which was why Qi Zhenbai immediately arranged for a candlelight dinner.
Seeing his wife smile happily, he heaved a sigh of relief. Hearing his wife’s sudden question, his heart jumped. Without a change in his expression, he pursed his thin lips and quickly continued, “Mm, I suddenly remembered it. Wife, do you like it?”
Chi Shuyan immediately nodded in agreement. It was hard for women to resist this kind of romance. Even someone like her, who didn’t have a romantic streak at all, liked it when it happened once in a while.
In fact, she and Qi Zhenbai had gotten married too early. She was also worried that their days would become duller and they would have no more passion in the future.
She also knew that she wasn’t a romantic person, let alone Qi Zhenbai. Two boring people would only live out even more boring days, so it was very nice to have something romantic like Valentine’s Day several times a year.
Seeing the happiness on his wife’s face, Qi Zhenbai was both happy and worried. He was worried about the fact that he wasn’t a romantic person. What if his wife was too bored living with him in the future or disliked him for being too boring?
To him, life was mainly about practicality. If he hadn’t met his wife, he would never have celebrated Valentine’s Day like this in his life.
Qi Zhenbai frowned. The more he thought about it, the more worried he became. Worried that his wife would go down the wrong path, he couldn’t help but say, “Wife, this kind of thing isn’t practical. Life is still more practical. We can only celebrate this sort of holiday once or twice a year at most!”
Fine, this was indeed this man’s style. Chi Shuyan wanted to laugh when she heard this. Fortunately, she was the one who had married Qi Zhenbai. Otherwise, how could any woman stand this man’s inflexible character?
In any case, he wasn’t that extreme and had even promised that the two of them would celebrate something like this several times a year. Otherwise, she would have flipped out now.
She deliberately put on a dark face and didn’t speak. Qi Zhenbai really thought that his wife was angry, and he immediately corrected himself. “Wife, I’ll be with you no matter what holiday you want to celebrate in the future. After the child is born, you can do whatever you want!”
Chi Shuyan’s eyes lit up when she heard this. She was about to reply to the man in front of her, when she saw a familiar figure in the restaurant not far away. Although the other party was a few seats away from her, Chi Shuyan took a few more looks and recognized her father’s familiar face.
Not only that, there was someone else at her father’s table, and it was a woman. This was a little too much of a shock, and Chi Shuyan’s eyes widened.
Wait, on this day, her father actually was out to eat at a restaurant with a woman?
Looking at her father’s careful and gentle expression, Chi Shuyan’s eyes almost popped out of their sockets. At that moment, how could she care about what the man in front of her said? Her attention was all on her father eating with a woman not far away.
What was her father’s relationship with that woman?
“Wife? Wife? Yan Yan?”
Chi Shuyan was in a daze. When she heard the man’s voice, she remembered that Qi Zhenbai was also here. She hurriedly grabbed the man’s arm and whispered, “Hurry, hurry, husband, turn around and help me see if that’s my dad sitting there. Who is that woman? What does she have to do with my dad?”
She had long hoped that her father would find a partner, and she was quite excited to see her father eating alone with a woman on Valentine’s Day. What she was most curious about now was who the woman was.
Chi Shuyan stared unblinkingly at the woman who was eating with her father. The more she looked at the woman’s back, the more familiar it seemed. Vaguely, she had an absurd guess, but she felt that it was impossible.
Just then, the woman suddenly got up and turned around. When she saw her teacher’s incomparably familiar face, Chi Shuyan’s mind went blank and she lost her composure. Her hand trembled and her spoon fell into her bowl with a clatter. Her lips trembled. After a long while, she stuttered in disbelief, “How… how can this be?” How could it be her teacher?
Why was her teacher eating alone with her father on Valentine’s Day?
She tried her best to deny the thought in her mind at that moment. For example, it was just a coincidence that her father and her teacher were eating at this restaurant, but how could she believe that her father and her teacher were guileless when she knew that almost all the people who came to this restaurant for Valentine’s Day were couples?
The shock was too great, and she felt dizzy.
Compared with Chi Shuyan’s loss of composure, Qi Zhenbai’s face was very calm when he saw his father-in-law and Fu Qing eating in this restaurant. He glanced at them indifferently, then immediately withdrew his gaze and asked lightly, “What a coincidence. I didn’t expect to run into Dad and Miss Fu here. Wife, should we go over and say hello?”
