Chapter 5 She Will Get Married Twice

Lu Chen got married within a few months of Lu Jinhai’s wedding. When Ning Jiahui was busy with supporting her husband in his business, Su Hui gave birth to a son, Lu Han, just after the one year of their marriage. Lu Han was the eldest son of the family. Su Hui always wanted him to take charge of the Lu family and the business, but it was not possible because of Lu Qiang.

Even her second son was a couple of months older than the latter. Yet the company still went into Lu Qiang’s hands. These matters made her bitter. She didn’t want to acknowledge the fact that Lu Jinhai was the founder of this huge Lu Corporation, and he alone established it with his blood and sweat.

With Elder Lu angry, the temperature in the room seemed to drop. Zhao Shuang tried to calm her husband. She knew his anger very well. He was upset with Lu Feng because of his bad habits. Nobody in the family had ever done anything to spoil the family’s name, but Lu Feng was an exception. The eldest son in the family, Lu Han was also being irresponsible towards the family.

Su Hui sat there with her head down. She didn’t dare to look at elder Lu as her sons were at fault. Lu Chen looked at his wife. He was quite upset with her for saying inappropriate things in front of his father. He knew what was going on in her mind, but he couldn’t do anything to stop her; she never listened.

After a few minutes of silence, Ning Jiahui asked her husband Lu Jinhai, “What about your best friend, Jiang Peizhi, and his family? Are they coming or not?”

Lu Jinhai looked at his wife and smiled lightly as if saying ‘thank you’ for breaking the ice.

“Yes, dear. Jiang Peizhi is coming and bringing his family with him. He was delighted to hear about the event and eager to meet everyone. He has already arrived in China with his wife. He was busy with some work and couldn’t visit us earlier. But he will attend the celebration,” Lu Jinhai said with happiness on his face. After all, he was going to meet his best friend after a long time. With this, the atmosphere in the room started to become normal.

“Brother, how are their kids. It’s been eight years since I saw them. Both of them must have grown up by now. They were too adorable,” asked Lu Chen.

Lu Jinhai nodded and replied, “You are right, Lu Chen. Both of them took after their parents. This time they are coming too. Jiang Peizhi said that Jiang Yuyan and Jiang Yang will be staying in China from now on.”

When elder Lu heard about Jiang Peizhi, his anger subsidized, and he started to give attention to the discussion. When they mentioned Jiang Peizhi’s kids, he said, “I missed Jiang Yuyan. It’s been a while I saw that child. She must have become a wonderful lady like her mother.”

He started to recall the memories of the past when all these kids used to play together in the Lu mansion. Those were the blissful moments of his life. He had a smile on his face as he remembered it again. He liked Jiang Yuyan a lot.

At the same time in Jiang residence.

After finishing breakfast, Jiang Peizhi was reading a newspaper, and Mo Ruolan instructed the servants about how the rooms would be set up. After coming to China, both husband and wife were busy decorating their new home. When she was done with the instructions, she went to the living room and sat beside Jiang Peizhi.

Mo Ruolan looked tired as she said, “The kids will arrive in Chine in two days. I hope I’ll be able to complete the decorations before they arrive. I want them to be comfortable in this house.”

“Don’t worry. Everything will be done in the given time.” He put his newspaper aside and looked at Mo Ruolan to ask, “Why did you insist on calling Jiang Yuyan and Jiang Yang back to China, suddenly? Why did you want them to study here in China?”

Mo Ruolan was quite startled with this sudden barrage of questions. She collected herself and replied, “It’s nothing! I just thought it was time for them to come back to their home country. I don’t want them to spend their lives in a foreign land. It would be good for them to get familiar with everything here and adjust themselves accordingly. Anyhow, Jiang Yang was coming back to China to stay here forever, and I don’t want Jiang Yuyan to stay there alone.”

Jiang Peizhi smiled and held his wife’s hand and said, “Dear, I want to know the real reason. It has been twenty-six years since we married. I know you very well. You never do anything without reason. Whatever it is, just tell me.”

“Well, two years back, when I came to China for my friend’s daughter’s wedding, I went to the temple with one of my friends. She was going to meet Master Si Xia to show her son’s birth card, so I too did the same and showed him our kids’ birth cards. Everything about Jiang Yang was okay but—”

There was a long pause after her last sentences. Jiang Peizhi couldn’t help but ask her,” Is there something about Jiang Yuyan?”

Mo Ruolan nodded and said, “I know you don’t believe in these things, and neither do I, but you know how the heart of mother works.”

“I know, and I’ll try to understand your reasoning. So, tell me now,” Jiang Peizhi assured her.

“When I showed Master Si Xia Jiang Yuyan’s birth card, he said, her life is complicated. When she turns twenty, her life is going to take a huge turn. It will affect her greatly, that it can either make her or break her. Her life will depend solely on her decisions. Her happiness and sadness are in her own hands, and nobody can meddle or help her. Her stars show that she would be a powerful and renowned person in the business world. And…” She trailed off and had a worried expression on her face.

Jiang Peizhi noticed her worried expressions and asked, “And what?”

Mo Ruolan sighed and said with a sad tone, “Master said, she is a moon, and there are two suns around her.”

Jiang Peizhi couldn’t understand what she meant. “What does that mean?” he asked, confused.

Mo Ruolan looked at him and replied, “She might get married twice.”
