Can’t Take My Eyes Off You - Chapter 992 - He Is My Man
Chapter 992: He Is My Man
Jiang Yao listened to the news attentively. She had heard of similar reports—it would appear once or twice a year in almost every place. She had never known anyone who was involved in the incident; it was always only a story. However, when she heard about what had happened to Major Zhu’s family and that they had lost three children, she felt terrified.
“Yes, someone must have followed the children closely,” Jiang Yao said. “When I was young, my mother was always afraid that my siblings and I would get kidnapped by human traffickers. When we were young, she would keep her eyes on us and constantly tell us not to talk to strangers. Even if we were to starve to our death, we should not eat the food they gave to us.”
“There are those who wanted children, and there are those who wanted a wife. If no one takes down these human traffickers, then this matter will never end.” Lu Xingzhi smiled. “My wife must be brilliant; she didn’t get kidnapped when she was young.”
“Yes, Jiang Yao is smart. But didn’t you target when she had only just grown up?” Mrs Lin teased him.
Xiao Wei, who was listening to the conversation, was confused. “Then, when I grow up, can I still get a wife?”
It was only one sentence, but everyone at the table burst into laughter. Colonel Lin laughed loudly. “Well, that would depend on your ability. Your father and Uncle Lu were very capable; we managed to get our wives. If you can’t get girls to like you, then you won’t be able to get a wife.”
“Dad, Mom, I’m sorry. Then you might not be able to get a daughter-in-law for the rest of your life.” Xiao Wei’s little face fell. “Not many girls in my class like me. They think that my pet is strange.”
“Maybe you’ll marry someone who has the same hobby as you!” Jiang Yao laughed. She held her stomach, and her whole body was almost on top of Lu Xingzhi.
After dinner, Jiang Yao helped Mrs Lin to wash the dishes. Lu Xingzhi and Colonel Lin continued to speak in the living room. When they came out of the kitchen, they heard Lu Xingzhi mention Nanjiang City’s Director Ye.
“Do you mean to transfer Director Ye to Yuan City?” Colonel Lin asked.
“Director Ye is my man.” Lu Xingzhi nodded. “The original team in Yuan City was removed; everyone has been replaced. Uncle Liang and I have discussed that we want to seize this opportunity and keep Yuan City in our hands. We can establish it as an additional military region. We are still discussing that. Once we have confirmation, I will recommend you to Yuan City.”
“That’s good. Even though we have to get used to it, the newly established military region will be easy to control.” Colonel Lin was elated. “I’ll wait for your good news.”
“Oh, right! Is there any news about your promotion? I heard that you are going to the Special Forces after the New Year. The higher your military rank and position, the more beneficial it will be to be transferred to the Special Forces,” Mrs Lin asked.
“Yes, I will go in a few days,” Lu Xingzhi replied. He was not worried about his military position when he reported to the Special Forces after the New Year. He would only rise from his original position; it was not possible for him to fall lower than that.
Jiang Yao did not ask Lu Xingzhi about his work. The three of them continued to talk, so she only listened. She would ask Lu Xingzhi when they were home.
When the two of them returned from Colonel Lin’s home, it was already past nine in the evening. When Lu Xingzhi opened the door to his unit, the door opposite them creaked open too. Then, the battalion commander’s mother walked out with a dark expression on her face.
