Can’t Take My Eyes Off You
She had lost a lot of weight during her pregnancy. Her face still had traces of tears on it, and the tiredness on her small face was difficult to conceal. Just looking at her made his heart hurt.
Lu Xingzhi lingered in the bedroom with Jiang Yao before leaving. “She is asleep,” Lu Xingzhi said when he saw his worried-looking in-laws standing at the door. “It’s okay. She knows what to do. It happened unexpectedly, so she is bound to be sad. She cried and fell asleep. She will adjust her emotions for the sake of the child.”
Mrs. Jiang exhaled deeply. “Xiaoxia and her family are too pitiful.”
Mrs. Jiang was still haunted by what had happened to Zhou Xiaoxia’s family. Jiang Yao found out about it at her elder brother’s wedding. The next day, she went to Yuan City to look for Zhou Xiaoxia.
Besides Wen Xuehui, Mr. and Mrs. Jiang remembered Jiang Yao’s roommates the most.
“Please keep an eye on her, Mom, Dad. I have to go on a mission tomorrow. I will see if I can postpone it.” Lu
Xingzhi was concerned about leaving Jiang Yao alone at home. He wanted to stay with her.
“All right. If you can’t postpone it, don’t be angry with your superiors. We will stay here and take care of her.” Mrs. Jiang agreed with a nod.
Lu Xingzhi thanked her and went to the study to get some things before leaving.
Jiang Yao woke up at around 4 o’clock. She opened her eyes and looked at the phone on the bedside table, which was ringing. Her response was still a little slow. She peered out the window, unsure whether what was pressing on her heart was real or a nightmare.
“Hello.” The phone call was from an unknown number, so Jiang Yao casually answered it.
“Hello, are you Miss Jiang?” The voice of an unfamiliar woman came from the phone. Listening to the voice, one could tell that the person who spoke was a little nervous and cautious.
“I am. May I ask who you are?” Jiang Yao rubbed her eyes, sat up, and leaned against the bed’s headboard. Mrs. Jiang, who had been watching the bedroom from the living room, heard a sound in the bedroom and went to investigate. She did not say anything to disturb Jiang Yao while she was on the phone. She turned around and went outside to get some water for Jiang Yao.
