“Oh right, Aunt Lin, don’t tell Fu Ying about these things. He likes to make a mountain out of a molehill. I don’t want to go to the hospital anymore, nor do I want to take medicine,” Mo Rao added.
Aunt Lin replied, “Okay, okay.”
After lunch, Mo Rao found some documents and went to the Civil Affairs Bureau.
She and Fu Ying had arranged for a divorce at three o’clock.
But when it was half-past three, there was still no sign of Fu Ying.
Helpless, she dialed Fu Ying’s number. “Where are you? You’re not here yet?”
Fu Ying hesitated. “Where?”
“Didn’t we agree to get a divorce at the Civil Affairs Bureau at three o’clock?” Mo Rao explained patiently. “We’ll talk to Grandma after the divorce is done.”
Fu Ying’s tone instantly turned cold. “I’m not free today.”
“I’m going to fulfill you and Qu Ru, but you aren’t free?” Mo Rao felt baffled. Shouldn’t Fu Ying rush over quickly? This was something he had dreamed of.
“I don’t know,” Fu Ying replied impatiently.
Mo Rao took a deep breath and suppressed the anger in her heart. “Give me an exact time. The divorce procedures actually don’t take long. You only need to take half an hour.”
Fu Ying smiled coldly. “Are you in such a hurry to divorce me? To draw a clear line between us?”
Was she in such a hurry so that she could be with the young police?
Fu Ying was very unhappy when he thought of this possibility.
“Who was the one who urged me to tell Grandma about the divorce? Who was the one who told me that he had to get a divorce to be with his true love?”
Mo Rao was so angry that she laughed. “Fu Ying, you’re so good at slandering me. I’m just following your instructions. You’re the one who wants a divorce. You’re the one who doesn’t have time. What do you want me to do?”
Mo Rao’s question irritated Fu Ying. He didn’t know what was wrong with him.
But he had already told Qu Ru that the divorce would be postponed.
“That’s all. We’ll talk when I have time. Otherwise, I’m afraid I won’t be able to get the money I promised you.” Fu Ying used the money to threaten Mo Rao again.
Mo Rao found it ridiculous. “You still think that I married you for money, don’t you?”
Fu Ying believed that she wanted to marry into the Fu Family and become a rich young madam with the help of Fu Ying’s grandma, who was indebted to her parents.
“Isn’t that so?” Fu Ying’s words were very hurtful.
In his heart, Mo Rao had always been like this. She was vain and materialistic. However, after she married Fu Ying, she had never asked for anything or had any selfish motives.
Fu Ying was the one who took the initiative to give her those things. She didn’t know if he was rewarding her for being sensible and obedient or rewarding her for being passionate and unrestrained in bed.
However, Mo Rao didn’t want those. She only wanted Fu Ying’s heart.
“Since you think that way, I’ll let you be. But I can tell you very clearly that not only do I not want your money now, but I also don’t even want you. Stop wasting time. I know you can rush over to get a divorce. Hurry up!”
Mo Rao’s voice turned cold from disappointment. Fu Ying felt unhappy.
Why was her tone so arrogant now?
His expression darkened. “No!”
Then he hung up.
When Mo Rao called again, he didn’t pick up.
He was really crazy. Did he not want to be with Qu Ru anymore? Impossible!
Just as Mo Rao was wondering what Fu Ying was up to again, a gentle voice sounded. “Mo Rao? Why are you here?”
Mo Rao turned her head and was surprised to see Lin Qun. “Lin Qun, why are you here? I have something to do. What about you?”
She was too embarrassed to say what she was here for.
Divorce wasn’t a glorious thing after all.
Lin Qun replied, “There is a case that requires us to look for the suspect’s personal information. Have you completed your task?”
He wanted to treat her to a meal.
Mo Rao shook her head in disappointment. “No, it can only be done next time.”
“Alright, then I’ll treat you to a cup of tea nearby. I know a tea house that’s not bad.” Lin Qun looked at the sky. It was too early to treat someone to a meal, so they could only drink tea.
Mo Rao was also in a bad mood. Furthermore, it was Lin Qun who had saved her, and she had always wanted to treat him to a meal to express her gratitude, so she replied, “Let’s have a meal nearby. I’ll treat you.”
“Alright.” Looking at her serious expression, Lin Qun knew that if he were to reject her, this little lass would definitely feel bad, so he might as well agree.
The two of them left the Civil Affairs Bureau together and found a mid-range restaurant nearby to eat.
