Chapter 89: She Saw Through It
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Actually, Meng Chuyuan didn’t really understand.
The Liao Jiake she met on the Variety show could support herself and take care of her sister. However, after Xu Zeyi appeared, Liao Jiake’s gaze never left him. She was even a little immersed in her own world.
The contrast was too great.
Liao Jiake suddenly felt that she could not see through Meng Chuyuan’s smile. She simply felt that Meng Chuyuan did not seem to care about anything.
Liao Jiake was five years older than Meng Chuyuan. She had been married to Xu Zeyi for more than a year and was considered to be at a relatively young age in the industry. Their marriage happened at the time when Liao Jiake’s career was on the rise. In terms of career and love, she chose love without hesitation.
Over the past year, she had almost disappeared from the industry. She did not take on any endorsements or films. She stayed at home as a full-time housewife and was even willing to give all her resources to Xu Zeyi.
At that time, she felt that she was very lucky to have met a man as gentle and attentive as Xu Zeyi who treated her so well.
At the mention of marriage, Liao Jiake was suddenly curious about how Meng Chuyuan balanced her career and love.
Because the two of them were sitting opposite each other and were a little far away, it was not convenient for them to communicate. Liao Jiake even specially walked over and sat beside Meng Chuyuan.
Liao Jiake glanced at her and asked softly, “How long have you been married?” “About a month.” It was only a few days away.
“Only a month?” Liao Jiake looked surprised. She didn’t expect Meng Chuyuan to be married for only a month. “Didn’t you go on your honeymoon after your wedding?”
Meng Chuyuan did not look regretful. She said calmly, “The night after we registered our marriage, he went on a business trip and hasn’t returned yet.” . Liao Jiake didn’t know how to respond.
After a long time, Liao Jiake picked up the topic again. “I’ve been married to my husband for more than a year. Every time he joins the production team to film, I’ll visit him every few days.”
Meng Chuyuan seemed to understand what Liao Jiake wanted to convey to her. She wanted to remind her to take the initiative and care for her man that was busy outside.
However, Meng Chuyuan asked Liao Jiake, “It doesn’t matter if a man is busy.
At least he’s seriously earning money to support his family, don’t you think
She and Lu Qingye did not have any emotional connection, so she might not have been able to put herself in Liao Jiake’s shoes. However, even if the two of them had feelings for each other, if it was really a job requirement, wouldn’t they be understanding of each other?
Liao Jiake said, “Your husband has been on a business trip for so long. Don’t you miss him at all?”
Meng Chuyuan suddenly smiled, and it was a very natural smile. She even joked with Liao Jiake, “Have you forgotten that I’m now publicly acknowledged as an abandoned woman in the wealthy circle? Why would I miss a man who can let me be an abandoned woman?”
Lu Qingye had married her because he trusted her, so she had to reassure him.
She lived in a comfortable house and spent the money Lu Qingye had given her. There were no complicated rich family disputes or family relationships. This kind of life made her as happy as a fairy.
Although the name ‘abandoned woman’ did not sound good, her life was not bad at all.
Liao Jiake pursed her lips and forced an awkward but not impolite smile. She said in admiration, “You have a good mentality.”
Meng Chuyuan said, “If my in-laws aren’t afraid of being criticized by the gossip outside, why should I take it to heart? After all, my face is only worth so little money.”
Compared to the Lu family, her reputation was indeed worthless.
Therefore, she just had to calm down and enjoy it.
In the evening, Meng Chuyuan and Lu Jinsen finally returned to the Lu Residence.
The two of them had just gotten out of the car when they saw that the courtyard was filled with colorful balloons. They wondered if they had walked into the wrong house.
Lu Jinsen asked the butler curiously, “What’s going on?”
The housekeeper said, “Third Miss knew that you were coming back today, so she specially prepared this.”
At the mention of Lu Qianling, Meng Chuyuan suddenly thought of the matter between them. “Uncle Chen, has that girl gone to class in the past few days?”
“Yes.” The butler nodded and said, “Third Miss has been very diligent in school these few days. Madam has become much more happy with her performance now, but she has woken up especially early these few days. The driver who sends her to school is quite stressed.”
Meng Chuyuan raised her eyebrows with interest. “Not bad.”
At least Lu Qianling was a person who kept her word and was not brushing her off.
Butler: “Third Miss said that she will come back after the evening self-study.
You don’t have to wait for her for dinner later.”
“It will be late when she comes back from her evening self-study, won’t it?
Doesn’t she stay on campus?”
Hearing Meng Chuyuan and the butler discussing this matter, Lu Jinsen suddenly interrupted, “She’s a day student and has never stayed on campus.”
The school did not make it mandatory for day students to attend evening self-study, but sometimes it was not entirely self-study. Occasionally, there would be classes.
With Lu Qianling’s lazy personality, she could not even last through the morning classes, so everyone naturally did not have any requirements for her to attend the evening self-study.
Meng Chuyuan thought about it carefully for a while. She frowned and said, “She should be living in school at this time in high school. Besides, her school is not close to home, right? It’s quite tiring to run around every day.”
They were surrounded by residential areas, and there wasn’t even a bus stop outside. This would be quite tiring for someone like Lu Qianling, who had to go to school every day.
When Lu Jinsen heard this, he could not help but reveal to her, “You probably don’t know, right? She’s quite unpopular in school and doesn’t know how to interact with her classmates. Letting her stay on campus will only cause more trouble.”
This was also the reason why they let Lu Qianling study by herself.
Lu Qianling had been staying in school since junior high school. However, she had a conflict with her roommate a few days after school started. Later on, their dormitory began to form groups against her. Lu Qianling could not stand this grievance and insisted that Lu Qingye drop out of the dormitory for her.
She even said that she wanted to transfer schools.
Ever since that incident, Lu Qianling did not like to interact with her classmates. She had developed a solitary personality. Now, no matter where she went, she always isolated herself.
She did not have much contact with Lu Qianling, but Meng Chuyuan felt that her personality was passable. It should not be as serious as Lu Jinsen said, right?
A trace of guilt flashed across Lu Jinsen’s eyes. Without changing his expression, he said, “Maybe she learned it from me. Her personality probably takes after mine.’
Meng Chuyuan said meaningfully, “I can tell.”
Because he and Lu Qianling were closer in age, when Lu Qingye was studying outside, only the two of them were left at home.
Perhaps because Lu Qianling was younger, she was very dependent. She respected Lu Qingye, but she did not feel the same respect and pressure from Lu Jinsen.
After interacting with Lu Jinsen for a long time, they often had small fights. Her personality was simply carved from the same mold as him.
Lu Jinsen actually felt guilty towards this sister of his. He felt that Lu Qianling had become like this today because he had not set a good example as an older brother..
