Chapter 1295: Normal in Our Social Stratum
The living room instantly became a lot more quiet once Jing Shaoze left. Ning Shu heaved a sigh. Thank god he finally scrammed.
“You ok?” asked Father Ni.
Ning Shu shook her head. “I’m fine. I’ve already made up my mind so I don’t feel hurt anymore and I also won’t waver. I’m definitely getting divorced.”
Ni Yan looked towards Ning Shu and said, “Jing Shaoze does have some feelings for you. He just wants to get the best of both worlds. This kind of thing is pretty normal in our social stratum. It just depends on whether or not you can endure it.”
Ning Shu gave him a sidelong glance. “He wants to have the best of both worlds? I’d rather have things be fully broken then to keep up a hypocritical pretense. This kind of thing is pretty normal? Then Big Brother, how come I don’t see you doing anything like this? I never see you messing around with women. “
“There’s no way I can tolerate something like this. Look at what the Jing family was planning! They wanted me to raise someone else’s child so that you’d end up having a ‘legitimate’ nephew that would not only be a successor to the Jing family, but also be a successor to our family,” said Ning Shu coldly.
Ni Yan said, “Since you’ve made up your mind, then act decisively and swift. Don’t end up raising a big ruckus, then still saying that you miss him.”
“Don’t worry, Big Brother. If I go back to the Jing family after being treated like that, then I must be brain-dead,” said Ning Shu.
“Our family had some business collaborations with the Jing family, but we’ll be canceling them now,” said Ni Yan. “You’d better not feel heartache later.”
Heartache? For what?
Jing Shaoze was taken to the police station and questioned. When they found out that it was just a fight between a married couple, they let Jing Shaoze go.
Jing Shaoze’s expression was extremely dark. When he got home, he hesitated at the door for a long time, not daring to open it.
In the end, he still went in. The living room was brightly lit. After that trip to the police station, it was already early dawn.
Jing Shaoze’s parents hadn’t gone to bed and were sitting on the sofa, waiting for him to come back.
“Mom, Dad,” said Jing Shaoze wearily.
When Jing Shaoze’s father saw that his son had come back alone, his eyelids jumped. He was already getting a bad feeling. “How come you came back alone?”
Jing Shaoze’s head dropped even more and he didn’t speak.
“What exactly happened?” asked Jing Shaoze’s father hastily. “Talk already! Ni Jing didn’t come back with you? Didn’t I tell you to bring her back?”
“Can’t you talk to your son properly? Don’t you see how tired he is?” said Jing Shaoze’s mother, her face filled with heartache.
Jing Shaoze had no choice but to explain what happened at the Ni family.
Jing Shaoze’s father’s expression darkened the more he listened. “Ni Jing actually called the police on you?”
“What? How dare she do that to you?” Jing Shaoze’s mother was trembling with rage. A wife asked the police to arrest her husband? What absurd behavior!
She was a cripple! She should be honored to be able to enter the Jing family, yet she actually dared to do something like this!
Jing Shaoze’s father knew that the relationship between the two families was done for. The Ni family had told the police to arrest Jing Shaoze without even giving their family a warning. People of their own social stratum cared about reputation the most. Even if they didn’t get along, they would still uphold a courteous manner.
There was no way they’d directly have a falling out like this.
Jing Shaoze’s father rubbed his forehead and got up to make a phone call. However, he was hit with a bout of dizziness and fell back on the sofa.
“Dear!” Jing Shaoze’s mother was alarmed and hastily asked, “Are you alright?”
“Dad.” Jing Shaoze also looked towards him worriedly.
Jing Shaoze’s father waved dismissively and said, “Get me the phone. I’ll call that old geezer from the Ni family.”
