Rebirth: Ghost Exorciser - Chapter 1773
1773 Chance Encounter (2)
Was the point about greeting them? The point was that her father and her teacher were celebrating Valentine’s Day together.
Wait, Chi Shuyan suddenly remembered that this man had hinted to her several times before that her father was closer to her teacher than she thought, and had even made a bet with her. Did this man already know about her father and her teacher’s relationship?
Chi Shuyan immediately looked at the man in front of her and saw that his face was calm and there was no surprise in his eyes, as if he had long known about this. She swallowed her saliva and immediately asked in a hurry, “When did you know?
“Did you really know about my dad’s relationship with my… Sister Fu?
“Are they dating?”
Chi Shuyan fired off questions like a machine gun. However, the man deliberately kept her on tenterhooks and didn’t reply right away. Chi Shuyan was furious. Just as she was about to say something ruthless, he wiped the corners of his mouth with a napkin and replied unhurriedly, “If I’m not wrong, Dad and Miss Fu are indeed dating.”
Qi Zhenbai raised his eyebrows when he said this, and he clearly looked a bit surprised. “A few days ago, I felt that Dad looked like he was working hard to woo someone. I didn’t expect him to do so well that he’s spending Valentine’s Day with Miss Fu tonight. That’s good!”
Chi Shuyan was clearly stupefied by Qi Zhenbai’s words, especially when he revealed that it was her father who had taken the initiative to pursue her teacher. She simply couldn’t imagine that her father would actually pursue someone one day. And the person he was pursuing was her teacher?
She didn’t know if she should praise her father for having good taste or what.
By the way, when did her father fall for her teacher? How did they start getting along?
Chi Shuyan’s head hurt at the thought that her teacher would most likely become her stepmother in the future. Of course, it wasn’t that she was dissatisfied with her teacher; she just didn’t expect two seemingly incompatible people to be together.
Moreover, they were the two whom she held the closest to her heart. Now that they were suddenly together, she somehow felt a little uncomfortable and was unwilling to accept it.
Perhaps it was because Chi Shuyan’s gaze was too hot, but Father Chi tilted his head and saw his daughter and son-in-law at a glance.
Father Chi was also a bit stupefied at that moment. He obviously didn’t expect to run into the two of them in this restaurant, but he quickly came back to his senses. When he looked at his daughter again, he was very uncertain, and his face was embarrassed and stiff.
Qi Zhenbai took the initiative to greet his father-in-law. “Dad!”
“You… you and Yan Yan… are here too?” Seeing his son-in-law come over, Father Chi stuttered even more awkwardly.
He had thought to wait until his relationship with Fu Qing settled a little in a few days before he came clean with his daughter and son-in-law. Who would have thought that they would run into each other at this restaurant?
“Mm!” Qi Zhenbai didn’t meddle in his father-in-law’s private affairs. It was fine as long as it was confirmed that his father-in-law’s partner was harmless to his wife. Besides, to some extent, he did hope for his father-in-law to find a partner so that his own wife would be his alone in the future, so Qi Zhenbai’s face was much calmer at that moment. It was for that reason that Father Chi was able to avoid embarrassment, and his face regained some calm. “What a coincidence!”
Father Chi thought of his daughter, and his face turned anxious again. He immediately said, “Yan Yan… why didn’t she come over? Is she against me finding a partner?”
He really liked Fu Qing. The two of them had just confirmed their relationship and were trying to get along; this was the outcome he had fought hard for. Father Chi was a particularly responsible person. If they broke up after confirming their relationship, he would be too much of a scumbag. However, if Yan Yan was really opposed to their relationship, he couldn’t ignore his daughter’s intentions no matter how much he liked Fu Qing, and could only break things off.
Just as Qi Zhenbai said that, Chi Shuyan came over. Her face was much calmer now, and there was no trace of her loss of composure at all. She took the initiative to call out, “Dad!”
“Yan Yan!” Father Chi was still a bit embarrassed in front of his daughter. He couldn’t help but scratch the back of his head. He wanted to say something, but didn’t know what to say for a moment. He could only stare blankly at his daughter and wait for her to speak.
Seeing her father like this, Chi Shuyan sighed in her heart and asked, “Dad, where’s Sister Fu?”
“She went to the washroom first!” Father Chi replied.
“Dad, are you really dating Sister Fu?” Chi Shuyan asked again.
Father Chi felt even more guilty at this question. He nodded in shame and embarrassment at his daughter. “Mm, we just… just got together, Yan Yan!”
Chi Shuyan actually still had a lot of questions to ask her father, but this wasn’t the place to ask them. She didn’t want her teacher to come back and be too embarrassed to see her, and ruin her father’s first Valentine’s Day date with her teacher. She could only ask her father the rest after they returned to the villa.
Thinking that her teacher should be back soon after going to the washroom, she tugged on her man and said, “Dad, let’s not talk about anything else for now. Zhenbai and I will go back to our seats first. We won’t disturb you and Sister Fu anymore. Have a good Valentine’s Day with Sister Fu. By the way, don’t tell Sister Fu that you saw us!”
With that, she pulled her man back to his seat.
Qi Zhenbai walked back with his arm around his wife, leaving Father Chi stupefied and excited. In the end, it didn’t seem like Yan Yan objected to him dating Fu Qing – otherwise, why would his daughter still let him spend Valentine’s Day with Fu Qing?
The more Father Chi thought about it, the more excited and moved he felt. He wanted to get up and say a few more words to his daughter, but Fu Qing had already come out of the washroom and returned to her seat. Seeing that Father Chi was distracted and his eyes were wandering, she couldn’t help but ask curiously, “What’s wrong?”
