Chapter 2251: Not Allowed
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
It would be impossible for her to stay in the capital to accompany Qiao Zijin. Her roots were in Ping Cheng and Old Qiao was in Ping Cheng. Why would she stay in the capital?
The problem was that she really didn’t expect Qiao Zijin to become so bad-tempered this time around. She changed her phone number immediately and there wasn’t any room for negotiation.
“Alright, Zijin is already an adult. Would she not know her limits? She has so many ideas and tricks up her sleeve. Do you need to worry about her?” After knowing about this situation, Qiao Dongliang was both angry and anxious. His inner thoughts weren’t as indifferent as what he had said.
He was angry because Qiao Zijin was already an adult and going to be a grandma in a few years’ time. Why was she so childish and insisted on doing things that made people worry? It was really enough. She was going to be a grandma soon but was so stubborn. There was really no cure for her. “It’s all your fault to pamper Zijin until she became like that. Now, do you know how to be anxious and worried? In the past, why didn’t you think of educating Zijin well? You’re suffering now because you had spoiled her in the first place!”
Qiao Dongliang was really annoyed at everything related to Qiao Zijin. She was unfilial, insensible, and often caused trouble to the family. If not for her being his biological daughter, Qiao Dongliang really wanted to ignore her. It was just that in the face of what Qiao Zijin did, Qiao Dongliang knew that even if he wanted to bother about her, he didn’t have the ability to.
Did Qiao Zijin want his care and concern? No. What did Qiao Zijin want? She wanted lots of money to squander. Qiao Zijin never wanted a dad or a mom. If they listened to Qiao Zijin’s words and went to the capital, causing them trouble was the least of Qiao Dongliang’s worries. Qiao Dongliang was worried that Qiao Zijin’s goal was Qiao Nan.
He and Ding Jiayi had already been disturbed by Qiao Zijin. He couldn’t possibly help Qiao Zijin disturb Qiao Nan and force her to agree to Qiao Zijin’s countless demands, right? Qiao Nan would lead a miserable life then.
Let’s not first say if he would do this. After going through so many things, Qiao Dongliang faintly understood that if his or Ding Jiayi’s requests were reasonable, Qiao Nan would agree to them. However, if they weren’t reasonable, even if they were her biological parents, Qiao Nan might not be willing to care about them.
So be it that she was kicking up a fuss. Anyway, it wasn’t the first time.
Two years ago, Ding Jiayi and Qiao Zijin had made such big news in Ping Cheng and appeared on TV a few times. They had long thrown all of Qiao Nan’s face. Let’s not talk about affection. What affection was there to speak of in their family? At the very most, they were just maintaining a little superficial contact.
Back then, Qiao Nan could take all her money and leave Ping Cheng without a word to live in another place. If anyone forced Qiao Nan too hard, even if she was now married to Zhai Sheng, Qiao Nan could still use the same method to avoid the Qiao family.
If Qiao Nan was really cornered, she could do anything. She had survived being alone for so many years. If they really kicked up a fuss such that Qiao Nan could no longer stay in the Zhai family anymore and had to divorce Zhai Sheng, she could similarly lead a good life alone.
If things really became like this, they wouldn’t be able to find Qiao Zijin today and Qiao Nan tomorrow. Qiao Zijin was different. She would always come back if she ran into difficulties. If Qiao Nan ran away, she would never come back.
Based on Qiao Zijin’s character, would she care if Qiao Dongliang and Ding Jiayi ran into difficulties? No. Not only would Qiao Zijin not care about Qiao Dongliang and Ding Jiayi, but she might even run farther than Qiao Nan and hide herself well. By then, it would be as if they had never given birth to two daughters. They would even have to go to nursing homes and trouble the country’s people to take care of them.
Upon thinking that things were likely to develop into this situation, Qiao Dongliang’s heart was dead.
As long as they ignored Qiao Zijin now, he and Ding Jiayi were still left with Qiao Nan. If they bothered about Qiao Zijin and listened to her words to cause Qiao Nan trouble, they would be left with no daughters.
Qiao Zijin could be so selfish. Who couldn’t be? At this age, Qiao Dongliang only wanted to lead a peaceful life. He simply didn’t have the energy to accompany Qiao Zijin and help her lead the life that she wanted.
“That wouldn’t do.” Ding Jiayi didn’t have the same determination as Qiao Dongliang. Upon thinking that Qiao Zijin was unfamiliar with the capital, didn’t have any friends there, and wasn’t close to the only relative she had there, Ding Jiayi was so anxious that she felt that her heart was going to explode. “No, I’m worried if we can’t contact Zijin. I’ll not be able to sleep at night. No matter what, I have to first confirm that Zijin is safe.”
“Confirm? How are you going to confirm?” Qiao Dongliang faked a smile. “Are you going to buy a plane ticket to rush to the capital to find your precious daughter?”
“How could I buy a plane ticket?” Ding Jiayi rolled her eyes. That was extremely expensive, alright? “It’s not as if we don’t have family in the capital. Furthermore, that person will definitely be of help in the capital and help us find Zijin. It’s alright. You don’t have to care about this. I’ll find her myself.”
To be honest, upon knowing that Qiao Zijin lost contact with her in the capital, Ding Jiayi was both nervous and scared. There was no choice. Wasn’t Qiao Nan in the capital? Qiao Nan was the Zhai family’s daughter-in-law and Zhai Sheng was the chief. As long as Qiao Nan went to find Qiao Zijin, the Zhai family could definitely call out a bunch of people to help them. As long as the Zhai family was around, did they have to be afraid that they couldn’t find Qiao Zijin? Also, with the Zhai family around, Ding Jiayi didn’t need to worry if Qiao Zijin would be bullied or harmed in the capital.
“…” Indeed, this matter concerned Nan Nan again. “No, you’re not allowed to find Nan Nan. This matter has nothing to do with Nan Nan. It’s not as if Qiao Zijin ran into some danger or an accident that she lost contact with you. She deliberately ignored you. She’s already treating you like this but you’re still concerned about her. Did you forget what I said just now? You’ve spoiled her. She should have long guessed that you would definitely find Nan Nan for help, thus she changed her phone number. If she wants to stay in the capital, she has to get Nan Nan’s help. You’re such a good mother to Qiao Zijin. No matter what, you would have ways to pass her a ladder such that she could climb up a big tree.”
“Old Qiao, why are your words so ugly? I didn’t think of doing so many things.. I just want Qiao Nan to help me find Zijin to confirm that she is safe.”
