Chapter 283: Finally Getting To Eat Mom’s Dishes
Ning Qing nestled in the man’s arms, looking at him with a pair of innocent eyes. “Hubby, don’t be angry. If I knew in advance that I would be taken by bad people, I would not have dared to run around, but I do not have the ability to predict the future.”
“You still have a valid excuse?” The man’s face was grim.
Ning Qing coquettishly rubbed against him. “Aren’t we all okay? Even if there’s an accident, you can just marry another wife. You, as the Young Master Lu, cannot possibly lack women.”
Before she could finish, a slap immediately landed on Ning Qing’s little buttock.
“Hubby, it hurts…” Ning Qing kicked her feet and pouted her pink lips.
Lu Shaoming bent over and bit Ning Qing’s lips. “Don’t pout. It’s useless to be coquettish now. Marry another woman? If that’s the case, when I lost my memory back then, why didn’t you just find another man? There are so many men who like you.”
The last sentence was full of jealousy.
Ning Qing couldn’t deal with this man. He must still be concerned about Mu Yunfan in his heart. He was too petty.
“That’s not the same. You are my husband, my only one, and my everything. When I learned about your amnesia in the United States at that time, I felt that the sky was falling. But I knew that my husband still loved me deep in his heart. You would surely be hurt by losing me. My heart ached when you were hurting so much, so I had to make him fall in love with me again. No one can replace you.”
Lu Shaoming listened to her sweet words, and his dark mood suddenly turned bright and sunny. Alright, he admitted that she was extraordinarily good at coxing people.
He refused to let go of her lips after biting them. “Ning Qing, I feel the same about you. Without you in my life, I would rather die alone.”
This was his worst declaration of love. Ning Qing closed her eyes and let him kiss her.
Lu Dinghua, Song Yajing: “…”
When they separated, Lu Shaoming hugged her tighter. “Ning Qing, when the kidnapper asked me to choose, my mind was running quickly in that 10 seconds. The police were hidden behind me. With a single signal from me, they would blow off the kidnapper’s head. But you and Mom were too close to the cliff. I did not dare to take a risk. I was trying to come up with a plan without any risks. But I didn’t have one…”
“Alright, I’m your wife. I can guess what you’re thinking with one look. You didn’t choose in those 10 seconds, because in your heart, Mother and Wife are equally important.”
Song Yajing, who was outside the door, teared up, and Lu Dinghua, whose hand was on her shoulder, wrapped her in his arms.
Lu Shaoming rubbed the girl’s hair. “I will not choose. You two must live. If there is an accident, let mother live. I will carry you and Little Master Lu in my arms. Our family will live and die together and will never be separated.”
Ning Qing touched his handsome face. Because of his words, she was willing to die for him.
“Hubby, in those ten seconds, I was like you. I was not thinking about how to choose. I was thinking about a way to save myself. Why do I have to choose who should die between Mom and me? I won’t give up. Even if someone has to die, it should be those bad people.”
Lu Shaoming looked at her bright autumn pupils and laughed softly. “So, how did you loosen the rope?”
Speaking of this, Ning Qing was proud. “At that time, a subordinate was tying me up. I pretended to have a stomachache. When the man came to check on me, I deliberately put a small piece of rope between my wrist, so that when he tied me up, it was loose. When they were focused on the money, I was struggling to break free from the rope.”
“Mmm, my wife is so smart.”
“Hubby is also very smart. I was so afraid that you would not listen to me or believe in me. I was so worried.”
Lu Shaoming laughed. “Of course I believe in my wife. At that time, I had entrusted your life, Little Master Lu’s life, my mother’s life, and my own life into your hands.”
Ning Qing rewarded him by kissing his eyes.
“Wifey, you actually still have another choice. Everyone would be selfish when facing death. You could have asked me to choose you between mother and you.”
Ning Qing rapped him on the head with her little hand. “What do you think; am I that kind of person? If you really had to make a choice, the one in the most pain would be you. How could I let you make a choice? Although you and mother aren’t too close, that is due to character and environment. Blood is thicker than water. Mother loves you, and you also love mother. Nobody can deny it. How can I sacrifice mother to let me live with Little Master Lu? What would father do if mother dies? How could you live with yourself in the future? Our family should be happy and live happily together. No one can separate us.”
“Yes.” Lu Shaoming stared at the girl deeply. At this time, he was wondering why God had let him meet her.
It must have been due to years of loneliness that God had begun to care for him.
Ning Qing suddenly thought about something. “Hubby, who do you think wanted to kidnap mother and me? Who is the real employer? This employer is quite strange, even coming up with the unethical plan of asking you to choose between mother and me. Shaoming, I think there’s a big conspiracy behind this matter, and they are attacking you and me.”
Lu Shaoming glanced at her and pinched her nostril in a pampering manner. “Who do you suspect? Zhou Zhilei?”
“Yes.” Ning Qing nodded. “Shaoming, Mom doesn’t know about Zhou Zhilei’s character. Don’t you know yet? When she was in Finland, she took the initiative to seduce you and used Yingjie to deal with me. Once, she had even personally told me that Mom was a fool. Even if I entered the Lu family, she would still be able to ruin the relationship between Mom and I. This woman wanted to be Mrs. Lu so much that she went mad. She is capable of coming up with all kinds of evil tricks. Hey, I asked you to leave someone alive, but you didn’t, so now we can’t investigate even if we wanted to.”
Was she complaining about him?
Lu Shaoming laughed. “I’ve already sent someone to investigate Zhou Zhilei, but she’s clean and has provided no clues.”
So they could only let Zhou Zhilei get away with it?
Ning Qing was unhappy. She reached out her little hand and knocked his head. “Look at the big trouble you’ve caused me, and you’re still mentioning Mu Yunfan. Hmph! I’m going to ignore you.”
The girl turned her shoulder.
Lu Shaoming hugged her from behind and coaxed her softly and indulgently. “Alright, baby, it’s all my fault. I’ll send someone to take note of Zhou Zhilei; it won’t happen again.”
“Are you still going to go out to flaunt then?”
As God has testified, he has never flaunted.
Only once, to make her like him, he had bought a lot of clothes and cologne, but of course, he would not tell her.
“Forgive me, baby. I won’t flaunt around anymore, alright?”
“That’s better.” Ning Qing laughed and dove into the man’s arms.
“Don’t move Wifey, let me see Little Master Lu…”
Lu Dinghua closed the door and led Song Yajing away with his arms wrapped around her shoulders.
Song Yajing’s tears plopped down. She covered her mouth with her hands so that she wouldn’t be heard crying.
It was said that time would reveal a person’s heart. Only after this hardship did she discover that Ning Qing was such a good girl.
She always knew that Shaoming doted on Ning Qing. After she saw them together today, it was true that Shaoming indeed dotes on Ning Qing, but that’s because Ning Qing was so worthy of being doted on.
“Yajing, don’t cry, alright? You’re already so old but still crying like a child.” Lu Dinghua stretched out his hand to wipe away Song Yajing’s tears.
Song Yajing took a deep breath and then put her head on Lu Dinghua’s chest. “Dinghua, was I wrong? I’m so wrong,” she said emotionally.
“Before going to England, you told me you had entrusted Ning Qing to me, but when we were tied up in the cabin, it was Ning Qing who had been taking care of me and encouraging me. I used to dislike Ning Qing so much, but at the edge of the cliff, she had said that she really liked me because I gave her the best Lu Shaoming.
“I’ve seen Ning Qing’s efforts along the way. She is smooth and intelligent, and she can grasp the key point from a small detail. She has a delicate mind. She had saved Yingjie and helped me to open my heart. She has taught me how to be a truly qualified woman. She also has such a deep understanding and relationship with Shaoming. There is no girl like her who could make Shaoming laugh so happily and wilfully in the sunshine.
“But what have I done over the years? I haven’t given any of a mother’s love. I incorrectly believed in Zhou Zhilei and tried to break up Shaoming and Ning Qing. I’m really a fool.”
Lu Dinghua squeezed his wife’s shoulder and said softly, “Yajing, it’s not too late for you to wake up. Shaoming and Ning Qing have not abandoned you. In the future, you will be a good wife, a good mother, and a good grandmother.”
Song Yajing nodded. “Yes, it’s not too late. They are willing to give me a chance to make up for it.”
After Lu Shaoming had received his drip infusion, they came back from the hospital in the afternoon after they had finished acting lovey-dovey. However, they did not return to the Tea Pavilion Villa, because Song Yajing had asked them to go back to the Lu family villa for dinner.
Upon entering the living room of the villa, Lu Dinghua was just coming out of the upstairs study. “Shaoming, Ning Qing, you are back! Are you in good health?”
“Dad, we’re alright. Where’s Mom?” Ning Qing asked.
Song Yajing came out of the kitchen just then. She did not tie up her hair neatly now. Ning Qing had accompanied her to curl her hair a few days ago. Now she just pinned it up casually. She was wearing an apron and placed the dish in her hand onto the table.
“Shaoming, Ning Qing, are you back? Go wash your hands and get ready for dinner.”
Ning Qing stared and gaped. She went into the dining hall and asked in surprise, “Mom, did you cook tonight? I’ve never tasted Mom’s craftsmanship. It looks delicious.”
Lu Dinghua came over and said with a smile, “Ning Qing, not only have you never tasted it; I have never tasted it either. I get to taste it thanks to you guys.”
“Although I haven’t cooked before, my skills are acceptable,” said Song Yajing, looking at Lu Shaoming, who was still standing in the living room. She smiled gently and waved to him. “Shaoming, what are you still standing about for? Come here and taste the dishes cooked by your mother.”
Ning Qing looked back. The man’s face didn’t fluctuate very much, but he was standing there uncomfortably. Ning Qing hurried over to take his arm, and she dragged him into the dining hall. She smiled with curved eyes and said, “Mom, Shaoming is too touched. He must be crying and weeping in his heart. Finally, he can taste the dishes that his mother has cooked herself.”
Song Yajing was amused. “You witty girl.”
Lu Shaoming quietly pinched the girl’s little hand, indicating — Who asked you to say that!
