Chapter 447 – Shameless
In order to supplement the nutrition for the children in her belly, during this period, Lu Xia’s meals were never without meat. Besides the chickens she raised herself, Grandpa Jiang and Aunt Jiang would find ways to buy meat every day…
However, despite eating so well, she didn’t gain weight. She estimated that all the nutrients went straight to her belly.
Lu Xia looked at her big belly with some worry.
It’s already this big now; how much bigger will it get in two months!
She didn’t know if she could hold on until the end of this semester.
After the meal, Jiang Junmo planned to accompany her to the dormitory.
Because she had just eaten, Lu Xia felt uncomfortable in her stomach, so they walked very slowly.
Jiang Junmo was very careful as he supported her.
At this moment, two female classmates behind them noticed them.
Then one of the female students curiously spoke, “Wanyu, is that the senior from the second year, Senior Jiang?”
The one named Wanyu was very beautiful. Hearing this, she looked ahead and her eyes immediately lit up, “Is it really him?”
But then she frowned, “Who’s the one next to him? Why is she so close to Senior Jiang?”
The other female student beside her thought for a moment and said, “It should be Senior Jiang’s wife. I heard she also studies at Peking University. It’s really good, they are not only a couple but also alumni.”
After saying that, she saw Wanyu’s displeased face and quickly added, “But looking at her like this, she seems quite chubby, right? It feels like her waist is almost as thick as Senior Jiang’s. They don’t seem very compatible. I don’t know why Senior Jiang married her.”
Wanyu, standing beside her, heard this and her face finally improved a bit. She huffed and said, “Senior Jiang looks so good and is so outstanding. That person is simply not worthy of him. I don’t know what she did to cling to Senior Jiang. It’s really shameless, hugging and cuddling in school, so vulgar!”
The other female student, on the side, agreed with these words outwardly but rolled her eyes in her mind. Who didn’t know that Jiang Junmo loved his wife very much, always carrying her photo with him, and always being the first to leave after class just to pick her up? Moreover, they already have a child.
Besides, what’s wrong with a couple walking a bit closer? There’s nothing shameless about it.
If we talk about being shameless, the person who knows that someone is married and still keeps leaning towards them is probably even more shameless.
Really, if it weren’t for her father’s sake, she wouldn’t want to have anything to do with her.
And Lu Xia was unaware of what happened afterwards.
After being escorted to the dormitory door by Jiang Junmo, she waved at him and then carefully went upstairs under his worried gaze.
After school, Lu Xia waited for Jiang Junmo in the classroom as usual. However, after waiting for a while and not seeing him, she started to worry.
Normally, at this time, Jiang Junmo should have arrived. Could something have delayed him?
Lu Xia didn’t think much and continued to wait in the classroom.
However, after a while, she suddenly heard someone knock on the door. Lu Xia was a little surprised, but still called, “Come in.”
Then she saw a somewhat familiar figure walk in.
“Are you Classmate Lu? I wonder if you remember me?” he said as he entered.
Hearing him speak, Lu Xia immediately remembered who he was.
After all, Jiang Junmo had mentioned him a while ago.
“You’re Zhou Yan, right? Why are you here?”
“Didn’t expect Classmate Lu still remembers me!” Zhou Yan smiled and said, “I came to deliver a message. Dean called Classmate Jiang after class, and he was worried you’d wait, so he asked me to come and tell you.”
Upon hearing this, Lu Xia understood, “Alright, I got it. Thank you for making a special trip.”
“Hey, no problem. It just so happens that I’m going to the cafeteria too. It’s on my way.”
Chapter 448 – Prank
Lu Xia laughed when she heard this. Since she had met Zhou Yan, she casually asked about his wife, Jin He. The child should have been born by now, right?
Hearing her ask this, Zhou Yan immediately smiled, “She has given birth, it’s a girl, and she looks like me!”
Lu Xia could tell from his expression that he was happy about it.
Afterward, they exchanged pleasantries for a bit, and then she said, “If you’re going to the cafeteria, you should hurry, or there won’t be any food left later. I’m fine here, Jiang Junmo will probably come soon.”
Hearing her say this, Zhou Yan hesitated a bit. It wasn’t that he was in a hurry to eat, but it didn’t feel quite appropriate for them to stay here alone as a man and a woman.
But he also didn’t feel at ease leaving her alone, especially considering she was pregnant. So he asked with concern, “Are you sure you’ll be fine by yourself in the classroom?”
Lu Xia smiled, “I’m fine. Today, the teacher assigned some homework, so I’ll just finish it here. It saves me from taking it home.”
Hearing her say that, Zhou Yan nodded, no longer hesitating. He exchanged a few more words and then left.
Lu Xia didn’t lie; during the last class, Teacher Li had indeed assigned a task to everyone: to write a short English essay.
It was quite simple for her, and she finished it in less than ten minutes.
Then she waited for Jiang Junmo in the same place. After waiting for a while and not seeing him, she started to feel hungry. Fortunately, there were some pastries in the desk, so she took them out and ate a bit.
Just as she put it in her mouth, she heard hurried footsteps coming from the corridor.
Lu Xia guessed it was Jiang Junmo, and indeed, the door was soon opened.
Jiang Junmo was a bit out of breath, probably because he was in a hurry. He looked at her eating and asked with concern, “What’s wrong? Hungry from waiting too long?”
Lu Xia nodded, “Yes, but I’ll be fine after eating something. Why are you in such a hurry? Take your time.”
Upon hearing this, Jiang Junmo shook his head, “I was afraid you’d get impatient.”
He then asked, “Do you have enough of the pastries? Should I bring more next time?”
Lu Xia quickly shook her head when she heard this, “These are enough. I can’t finish them all. You don’t know, every time Yu Wan sees that a big bag of pastries is gone after class, she looks at me like I’m a bottomless pit for food.”
Jiang Junmo chuckled at this, “Don’t mind others. Just don’t starve yourself.”
Lu Xia nodded, not wanting him to bring up this matter again. So she casually asked, “Why did the dean suddenly look for you? Is there something going on?”
Unexpectedly, when she asked this, Jiang Junmo’s expression suddenly turned sour.
Seeing this, Lu Xia became a little worried, “What’s wrong? Did the dean ask you to do something you didn’t want to do?”
“No.” Jiang Junmo shook his head. Instead, he said, “The dean didn’t look for me. I went there and didn’t see the dean!”
“What?” Lu Xia was surprised, “Then what happened? Could it be that someone used the dean’s name to contact you? Who was it? Are they sick? Why would they look for you?”
Thinking of the meaningless words that the girl had said today, Jiang Junmo felt irritated. He thought she was sick, but he didn’t go into details with Lu Xia, just saying, “It’s nothing. Someone was just playing a prank on me.”
But Lu Xia was still angry when she heard this, “We’re in university, and they’re still playing pranks. They have too much free time. Aren’t your majors usually very busy? Why are there people like this? If this happens again, tell the teacher. We shouldn’t indulge people like this.”
Seeing her so angry, Jiang Junmo felt a bit better, “Okay, don’t worry.”
Lu Xia saw that he took it to heart and didn’t say much. The two of them packed up and cautiously left the classroom.
