08 Am I Your Wife Then?
“Where is my dad? Jiang Jing Zhi, why don’t you speak? Where is my dad?” Mu Xin Cheng walked to him, grabbed his collar, and yelled at him, her eyes full of panic.
This is even more panic than waking up to know that she has become Jiang Jing Zhi’s wife, because that is her father, her only relative, even if he later married a stepmother and has a new son, that is still her favorite father.
Jiang Jing Zhi gently pressed her into his arms, and a low voice rang in her ear, “Cheng er, your father, he already passed away for six years.”
Even though she had already had bad expectations, she was still dumbfounded when she heard this cruel fact. At that moment, her body froze, her head was blank, and she couldn’t think of anything.
Jiang Jing Zhi gently stroked her back, “Don’t be sad, I’m here, I’ve always been.”
Listening to his comforting words, tears overflowed from her eyes, winding down her cheeks.
Mu Xin Cheng never thought that she would cry in front of this man for a second time. She didn’t want to be vulnerable, but her father already passed away for six years. This was really a big blow to her.
She is very strange to this world. She thought that there was still dad, but now she doesn’t even have a dad.
Mu Xin Cheng couldn’t remember exactly how she was brought back to the room. She only remembered that she kept crying. No matter how Jiang Jing Zhi coaxed, her tears could not stop.
When she calmed down, she sat on the bed, holding the quilt in a daze.
Jiang Jing Zhi came in with a bowl of noodles in his hand, walked over, and said to her, “Must be hungry. Eat something first, and sleep well. Tomorrow, I will take you to see your father.”
Mu Xin Cheng silently took the chopsticks and the bowl of noodles he handed over, took a few mouthfuls, and couldn’t help but look up at him and asked, “Jiang Jing Zhi, how did my dad die?”
She remembered that his body was very healthy six years ago. Even if she was half to death by her anger, he still taught her to be strong, why did he suddenly die?
Jiang Jing Zhi sat by the bed, brought the tableware in her hand, and fed her personally, “Your father committed suicide and jumped off the top floor of the company.”
Mu Xin Cheng listened, suffocating in her heart.
What happened? Her father actually committed suicide?
Jiang Jing Zhi glanced at her, and briefly said, “Your father’s company has had a lot of problems. It gets bigger and bigger, he can’t fix it.
Mu Xin Cheng looked at him blankly, and wanted to ask, where were you then? Why don’t you help him? Are you not partners? Am I your wife then?
But she didn’t ask, and finished the bowl of noodles in silence.
She had bright eyes, but after hearing that her father had died, she felt sad again.
Jiang Jing Zhi touched her jaw, looking at her with his bottomless phoenix eyes, “It’s all over, don’t be too sad.”
Mu Xin Cheng smiled bitterly. Indeed, it has been six years since his death, and it is too late for her to be sad now.
Jiang Jing Zhi went out with the bowls and chopsticks. She couldn’t sleep while lying on the bed. She was in a daze. She didn’t even notice when the door was opened. Until, the soft sound came from her ear and shouted mama, shocked her until she sit up on the bed.
