Lu Liting furrowed his brow. “Grandpa, you had me investigated?”
“My grandson frequently doesn’t come home. What’s wrong with me checking where you went?”
Lu Liting didn’t talk back to Elder Lu. Instead, he turned his gloomy gaze towards Ji Qingqing. “Shen Weiwei is the person that I like and the person that I plan on marrying. If it wasn’t for Ji Qingqing, she wouldn’t have gotten injured and be staying at the hospital.”
Ji Qingqing met his gloomy gaze and smiled as she added a piece of chicken to Lu Lixing’s bowl. “Hubby, you haven’t fully recovered yet. You need to eat more to get better.”
— “1 point has been added to your life. You currently have 35 hours to live.”
Ji Qingqing wasn’t scared of Lu Liting anymore. Lu Lixing was alive, so Lu Liting wouldn’t become a useful male lead. He didn’t have a brain for business. He only had a love-addled brain. In the novel, for the sake of Shen Weiwei, he had repeatedly almost destroyed the business empire built up by Lu Lixing. Lu Liting wasn’t a capable person that could accomplish great things.
Lu Lixing glanced at the attentive Ji Qingqing. From his peripheral vision, he noticed his younger brother’s gloomy expression. Remaining calm and collected, he chewed the piece of chicken that Ji Qingqing had given him.
Ji Qingqing had once mentioned her past with his younger brother to him. Although they had already broken up, it didn’t change the fact that they had once dated and had feelings for each other in the past. The relationships between exes were the most awkward ones. Now that they were living under the same room, they were bound to see each other even if they didn’t want to. There was no guarantee that something wouldn’t happen if they rekindled their old flame.
As soon as he thought of this, Lu Lixing felt out of sorts.
Lu Liting’s grip on his chopsticks had tightened. Hearing Ji Qingqing warmly calling his older brother “hubby”, he wished he could tear off Ji Qingqing’s mask.
He had only been gone for a day. Why had they gotten so close? She was even calling his older brother hubby now?
Seeing the faint smile on Ji Qingqing’s face, Lu Liting felt as if needles were stabbing his eyes.
How had he failed to notice before that this woman was so good at pretending?
“Why are you blaming Qingqing?” Miffed, Elder Lu said, “I heard about what happened. Didn’t video evidence for that come out? Qingqing didn’t push her. How can you place the burden of responsibility on Qingqing? Don’t forget that Qingqing is your sister-in-law. Don’t be rude to her again!”
“Grandpa, since everyone is here, I’ll set the matter straight with you. Ji Qingqing is a gold digger. She only loves money. When I left home, I dated her for a year, but she cheated on me with a rich second generation brat. And, she has a bad reputation. You can easily find out what kind of person she is. Anyone with discerning eyes can see why she married my older brother!”
Ji Qingqing calmly lowered her head and continued eating. She had to eat slowly to avoid upsetting her delicate stomach. She couldn’t be bothered to care about Lu Liting’s stabbing words.
Elder Lu warningly said, “Lu Liting!”
“She only married my older brother for his money! How can you and older brother treat this kind of woman so preciously?!”
“Lu Liting!” Elder Lu glared at Lu Liting. “Qingqing married your older brother because…” After only saying a few words, Elder Lu suddenly stopped and breathed heavily.
“Grandpa, are you okay?”
Elder Lu waved his hand. “I’m fine. I’m just angry because of that damn brat!”
Lu Lixing looked at his younger brother. In a sunken voice, he said, “It’s only natural for me to treat Ji Qingqing preciously. She’s my wife. You said she loves money, so I want to ask you something. Is there anyone in this world that doesn’t love money?”
“Weiwei doesn’t care about money. She only cares about me.”
Lu Lixing scoffed, “Really?”
Lu Liting unhesitantly declared, “Yes, she had no idea that I’m rich.”
Lu Lixing raised his eyes and slowly said, “You never had any money.”
