MY ALL FOR YOU - Season 10 Episode 17
“Alright, it’s good to have a lawyer there as well. Zhou Xiaoxia’s younger brother seems to have been locked up by the police for beating someone up. Xiaoxia was afraid to say too much on the phone; she did not want to intrude on the wedding.” After Lu Xingzhi’s reminder, Jiang Yao realized that it would be prudent to have a lawyer with them.
Mr Jiang was the best lawyer in the legal profession. Whether it was Zhou Xiaoxia’s younger brother or Zhou Xiaoxia’s younger sister, both of them would have to go through judicial procedures, so they would not do anything without lawyers.
It was better to have a familiar lawyer with them so that they did not have to look for someone new in Yuan City. That way, they would know the lawyer’s ability and loyalty as well.
Lu Xingzhi did not keep Jiang Yao on the phone for long since he knew she had to catch a plane the next day. He told her to rest early and recover her energy.
Jiang Yao had not seen Lu Xingzhi in almost two months; she missed him.
She missed his warmth when he hugged her and the sound of his voice when she leaned into his arms.
Since Jiang Yao had to get up early to catch a flight, Mrs Lu also woke up early to cook breakfast for her. While her daughter-in-law ate, she reminded Jiang Yao about some things. When Jiang Yao was about to leave, she handed Jiang Yao two red packets.
“This is the New Year cash gift for you and Xingzhi. You probably don’t have time to come home, so I’ll give them to you first. Don’t feel embarrassed. No matter how old you and Xingzhi get, you’ll always be our children.” Mrs Lu handed the red packets to Jiang Yao; then, she patted the back of her hand. “Don’t worry about us. Buy whatever you want to eat. Don’t be reluctant to spend the money. If you don’t have enough, just give us a call.”
Jiang Yao held the red packets in her hand. There was no need to calculate it; its thickness meant that there was a lot of money in it. Mrs Lu was worried that her son and daughter-in-law would not have enough to eat and buy clothes during the new year.
Lu Xingzhi had never asked his family for money ever since he was in university. Even if his parents wanted to give some to him, they did not have the opportunity to do so. After Lu Xingzhi joined the army, he had not spent his family’s money anymore. His parents felt that it was a good thing because it meant that Lu Xingzhi did not have a bad habit of spending money recklessly. It also meant that Lu Xingzhi did not suffer any bad influence at school.
However, after Lu Xingzhi got married, his parents felt that his salary might not be enough for the newlyweds. They waited for Lu Xingzhi to ask his family for some extra money. However, their son never mentioned anything about that. They were worried that he was too ashamed to ask that of his family.
Jiang Yao was to go to the army to celebrate the New Year with their son. Mrs Lu was in a hurry to give the red packets to Jiang Yao; she wanted them to have a better life in the army that year.
Lu Yuqing watched from the side as she waved the car keys in her hand and chuckled. How could her brother be short of money? How could he be short of cash with his wife around?
Jiang Yao did not decline the gift; she agreed with her mother-in-law’s request so that the older woman would feel more at ease.
After they got into the car, Lu Yuqing drove to Ah Lu’s residence. After they picked up Ah Lu and Big Ke, she headed to the airport.
“Don’t be impulsive when you’re in Yuan City. This kind of matter is a little tricky. If you can solve it with money, then do that first.” Lu Yuqing did not forget to remind Jiang Yao about that when they arrived at the airport.
