Can’t Take My Eyes Off You - Chapter 1517: Protection
Chapter 1517: Protection
"Go to sleep. We'll talk when you wake up." Lu Xingzhi patted Jiang Yao's back gently as if he was comforting a child.
Jiang Yao hugged Lu Xingzhi like a koala. Her face was buried in his arms, but she did not feel sleepy at all.
How could she possibly fall asleep? When she thought about how he would return to Province A in the afternoon, and the two of them would not see each other for half a year, she did not feel sleepy at all.
Jiang Yao did not hear Lu Xingzhi's voice as she raised her head to look at him. "Are you sleepy?"
The sun had reached the window very early in the morning. Jiang Yao's gaze passed Lu Xingzhi's profile and landed on the chirping sparrows outside the window. She secretly envied the sparrows for being so lively in all four seasons.
Lu Xingzhi was not sleepy; he did not know how to comfort Jiang Yao.
She hugged him tightly like a koala, unwilling to let go. It was clear how reluctant she was to part with him.
Half a year was neither too long nor too short.
In their first year of marriage, Lu Xingzhi had gotten used to not seeing his wife for half a year. Jiang Yao even yearned for that. However, she had changed her mind. Half a year was suddenly too long.
The two hugged each other to sleep without saying a word. They lazed in bed until Mrs. Lu woke them up and invited them to have lunch.
"You'll fly back to Province A in the afternoon, right? After lunch, you two will accompany me to the market in town to buy some vegetables. After lunch, I'll cook some soup for Yaoyao and cook up some delicious dishes. She will need nourishment." As Mrs. Lu spoke, she handed a peeled egg to Jiang Yao. "I don't have any classes in the morning, so I don't need to go to school. Just treat it as a walk with me."
"Okay." Lu Xingzhi agreed on behalf of Jiang Yao. It seemed like his parents had the same idea as him.
It was good to go to the market. Even though it was noisy, there were many people. Furthermore, it was not far from home. Jiang Yao could use that time for her stomach to digest the food.
Jiang Yao could not say that she was too lazy to go out. Mrs. Lu had done that for her own good. It was the same with Lu Xingzhi.
After the meal, Mr. Lu went to work. Mrs. Lu carried a basket and went out with Jiang Yao and Lu Xingzhi. The small market was the most lively place in the town in the morning. It was bustling with people.
The Lu family was quite famous in town. Everyone knew Mr. and Mrs. Lu. Although some people might not have seen Lu Xingzhi and Jiang Yao, when they saw them with Mrs. Lu, they would get curious and ask about them.
Mrs. Lu told them that they were her son and daughter-in-law. They had just arrived home the previous night, and her daughter-in-law had been feeling a little weak recently. Therefore, she wanted to cook some dishes for her.
When Mrs. Lu spoke, she would pat the back of Jiang Yao's hand gently with a smile on her face. "My daughter-in-law studies hard. Well, she studied too hard, so she's not feeling very well. "
If anyone asked why Jiang Yao was not at school, Mrs. Lu would get angry and say, "I don't know why anyone would speak such nonsense about her. Yaoyao has been going to the countryside with her professor since the semester started. She lost so much weight because she couldn't eat and live well there. How could I not know about it? My son personally went to the countryside to bring her home from her teacher's place! If I hear any more of that nonsense, I'll rip your mouth off!"
