Chapter 2270: Rise From The West
Mrs. Jiang washed her hands after she was done with her work. When she saw Jiang Lei leaning against the stove and eating raw sweet potatoes, she was amused. She raised her hand and hit Jiang Lei on the head. “When you were young, you ate sweet potatoes raw. Now that you’re older, why do you eat like that when you don’t have anything to eat at home? You’re already a big boss; why don’t you pay more attention to your image?”
“I’m a country bumpkin. Even if I don’t eat sweet potatoes, I’m still a bumpkin. I ate them when I was young, so why can’t I eat them now? Why can’t a big boss eat them? Doesn’t a big boss eat, drink, and poop?” Jiang Lei scratched his head and touched the spot where he was hit. “Furthermore, this is my sister’s house. What image do I want to keep here? We’re family. Who doesn’t know what kind of character I have? If I have to put on an act outside, how tiring would it be to put on an act when I go home?”
Mrs. Jiang also knew that surviving in a big city was not easy. Even though she had never heard Jiang Lei complain about his work, she knew it must be hard for Jiang Lei to do business for so long. As Jiang Lei put it, doing business required him to censor his words. When he walked out of his house, he wore a mask on his face. Whenever he saw someone he liked or disliked, he would greet them with a smile. He was so friendly that it was as if he was greeting his ancestors.
‘Your elder brother and sister-in-law already have a child, and your sister will be a mother soon. You are the only one left. When are you going to bring a girl home?” Mrs. Jiang said, “You are not young anymore. Most men have already become fathers at this age. You work hard, but you should get married soon. When you go home, someone will prepare food for you. When you are tired from work, it is good to have someone to chat with you when you go home.”
“We’ll see about that.” He had not met anyone suitable in their hometown, and he had not met anyone new in the city either. He was always socializing with other people, and the women he met always wanted to know how much money he had.
When Lu Xingzhi returned to the kitchen with an empty cup, he heard Mrs. Jiang urging Jiang Lei to get married. He walked in and said, “Mom, Jiang Lei isn’t that old. You don’t have to worry about him. His career is on the rise now, so he doesn’t need to rush to get married. If he has a partner, then, of course, it’S great to get married. If he doesn’t, then let nature take its course.”
Jiang Lei did not expect Lu Xingzhi to speak up for him. Jiang Lei, overwhelmed by the favor, shot Lu Xingzhi a grateful glance. He thought he would speak up for Lu Xingzhi, and when he returned to Jindo City, he would definitely treat Lu Xiaoxiao better. He would keep a close eye on Lu Xiaoxiao so that those bad men would not seduce her.
However, Lu Xingzhi did not respond to Jiang Lei’s gratitude. After rinsing the cup, he returned to the kitchen. Halfway there, he went to the bathroom to look for a mirror.
Lu Xingzhi called out to Jiang Yao in the bathroom. Then, he asked, “When will my medicine be ready today?”
“Hey, is the sun rising from the west today?” Jiang Yao walked toward Lu Xingzhi curiously.
Lu Xingzhi had asked about the medicine used to heal the scars on his face. The ointment did not smell pleasant because it was custom -made by Jiang Yao. Lu Xingzhi refused to use it again after the first time..
