Rebirth to a Military Marriage: Good Morning Chief - Chapter 1849 - More of What?
Chapter 1849: More of What?
Besides, she was ninety percent sure that Wei De was not even Wei Wei’s uncle. Wei De was Wei Wei’s biological father!
Someone as selfish as Wei De would never favor his nephew over his own daughter, even if he were to favor boys. His nephew was someone else’s child, but his daughter was his own! If nothing else worked, Wei De would find a way for someone else to give birth to a son for him. In short, anyone else who was not his own child would not matter.
“But my dad is worse than other dads!” Wei Jiajia clenched his fist tightly and pounded against the bedhead. “My friends’ parents always send them to school. I don’t have anyone but my mom to send me. When I was younger, people laughed at me, saying that I was a fatherless child. At that time, I could honestly say that my dad was in the army. But when I grew older and Wei Wei went to high school, my dad personally sent him to school. Even when I went to junior high school, my dad could not even be bothered with me. My friends have good relationships with their dads, but me and my dad…”
Even though her dad was in the military, he spent way too little time at home. But he seemed to always be able to find some time for Wei Wei. Yet, he was never willing to use some of that time for his own daughter.
What was the reason?
“Aunty Qiao, are sons really that good? And that son is not even his own son! If my dad can treat someone else’s son well, why can’t he care more about his daughter?” Wei Jiajia could not wrap her head around this. “Do you think my dad would treat me better and be more caring toward my mom if I were a boy? If my dad performs well, do you think grandma and grandpa will accept him and we’ll be able to have a normal life like other families?”
Wei Jiajia had felt that the atmosphere and relationships in her family were abnormal more than once. It had almost become a dream of hers to have a normal life.
What else could Qiao Nan say at this time other than hugging this hurt child in her embrace, lighting patting Wei Jiajia’s back to comfort her?
Even though she had already confirmed her suspicions, she could not simply say such things without absolute evidence. She could not act so flippantly in case she alerted the enemy.
This chat with Wei Jiajia was mostly Wei Jiajia venting her emotions. Qiao Nan still had a ton of questions in her mind, but at the sight of the pitiful Wei Jiajia, she really had no heart to continue asking.
Wei Jiajia sobbed violently in Qiao Nan’s embrace, completely soaking the clothes on Qiao Nan’s shoulder. Only then did she stop crying. To Qiao Nan’s relief, Wei Jiajia was in good spirits after crying, and she seemed to be in a better mood than when she had just arrived. This child had truly held it in for too long. “Since you like this room, take a look around and see if there’s anything missing. Auntie Qiao will help you prepare it.”
At this time, Wei Jiajia’s eyes were as red as a bunny’s, and she was exceptionally embarrassed. “Auntie Qiao, I’m sorry to have troubled you. It looks like everything is here. I don’t need anything else. Thank you, Auntie Qiao.” She was already a grown-up and no longer a young child. That was why she had held it in without saying a thing.
But now that she had told Auntie Qiao about it, she realized how much she had suffered. After spilling it all out, she felt relieved and relaxed. “And Auntie Qiao, can you…”
“Don’t worry. I won’t tell anyone about what happened today.” Qiao Nan knew that children of Wei Jiajia’s age were particularly sensitive. After all, she had once been the mom of three children. “I’ll go boil two eggs for you to soothe your eyes. Otherwise, people might think that I bullied you and made you cry.”
“Okay.” After sending Qiao Nan out, Wei Jiajia jumped onto her bed and buried her face in her covers. She was not a three-year-old child and had met Auntie Qiao for the first time today. Why had she spilled everything to Auntie Qiao and even cried in Auntie Qiao’s embrace like a kid?
Thinking about how she had never even cried in this manner in front of her mom, Wei Jiajia felt even more embarrassed.
Qiao Nan took a turn and headed to the kitchen, hearing Zhai Hua and Zhai Sheng leaving quietly. Along the way, Zhai Sheng asked Zhai Hua, “Is this the happiness that you persisted and gave up everything for?”
Zhai Hua had complained that her parents favored males over females and placed more emphasis on Zhai Sheng than her. That was why she was going to marry someone who valued her, and that man was none other than Wei De.
At that time, Zhai Hua’s words had hurt Zhai Yaohui and Miao Jing deeply. How could an outsider treat their own daughter better than they did? The couple did not know whether to be angry with their daughter, Zhai Hua, or to be hurt that their daughter had misunderstood them to such an extent. If even her own parents did not love her, why did Zhai Hua think that someone else would be able to truly love her?
It was not that such a case did not exist, but the probability was minuscule.
Obviously, Zhai Hua was certain that she had to be that lucky one and thus threw herself into Wei De’s arms and married him without any hesitation.
Zhai Sheng did not say much, but this one sentence was enough for Zhai Hua to feel attacked.
Wei Jiajia had not said much, but Zhai Hua’s actions spoke for themselves. Before Wei Wei had started pinching Jiajia secretly, Zhai Hua had been more concerned about Wei Wei than Jiajia, who was still in infancy and could not speak.
Her reason for that was similar to Wei De’s. Wei Wei was a fatherless child, while Jiajia had both her parents loving on her. As such, it was only right for them to pay more attention to their nephew, Wei Wei.
Zhai Hua knew that she cared more about Wei Wei. After all, Jiajia was still young, and all she needed to do was to make sure Jiajia could sleep and eat well. There was nothing else she needed to worry about. But Wei Wei was different. He was about to start school and had to attend enrichment classes. To develop Wei Wei, Zhai Hua ran around, pulled on her strings, and spent money on him.
It was only when Zhai Hua realized that she had neglected her own daughter because of Wei Wei, and Wei Wei had even been sore about her caring less about him now that she had Jiajia and had bullied Jiajia because of that, did Zhai Hua finally come to a realization.
So what if Wei Wei did not have a father and Jiajia had both her parents? Was it Jiajia’s fault that Wei Wei was fatherless? Wei De was in the military, and she came to the difficult decision of retiring from the military to stay at home to take care of Jiajia, becoming a slave for Wei Wei’s matters. But instead of gratitude, what she received in return was Wei Wei bullying her daughter!
In that case, what did Jiajia have? Did she have her father’s company or her mother’s care? All Jiajia had was a bad brother who stole her father’s concern and her mother’s love from her, and one who even liked to pinch her secretly!
