Can’t Take My Eyes Off You - Chapter 1192 - Where Are You Going?
Chapter 1192: Where Are You Going?
Even though the reason she gave last night was the same, Lu Xingzhi still felt that something was wrong.
Jiang Yao was returning to Nanjiang in a few days. What medical equipment could she not get in Nanjiang City? Was there a reason to rush to Jin City to buy it?
It was not like the medical equipment in Jin City was better, right? Would the medical equipment companies in Jindo City, about an hour away, have more items then? However, she said that she was going to JiN City instead of Jindo City.
The hospital’s special department handled the medical equipment choices in Nanjiang City’s hospital. The stockholder, Jiang Yao, was not required to participate in the procurement process. She would, at most, be involved in the decision-making and purchasing of those items.
Therefore, the notion that Jiang Yao was purchasing the things was not valid. The more Lu Xingzhi considered it, the more he felt that his wife was lying.
“Someone is arguing. I’m just watching the show,” Jiang Yao continued to spout nonsense. “I saw something exciting, so I did not hear the phone.”
Young Master Lu was speechless; he felt aggrieved. Did she not even bother to find a good excuse or just say whatever came to her mind? Did she doubt his IQ?
“Aren’t you going to the medical equipment company?” Lu Xingzhi was certain. Then, he asked, “Where are you going?”
His birthday had passed, so it was not like she had to hide a birthday surprise from him.
“Why are you so annoying?” Jiang Yao pouted. “I’m only out for one day. I’ll be back before dinner! Don’t ask so much, okay? I swear, I’m not having an affair.”
Lu Xingzhi pushed the tip of his tongue into his teeth after hearing Jiang Yao’s audacious and coquettish statements. With a snort, he exuded a disdainful smirk. “I do not think you have the energy to hunt for your lover.”
He had hurt her so much the previous night that she was begging for mercy. If she still had the energy to look for her lover, he would have to write his name in reverse.
Of course, Lu Xingzhi believed that no other man in the world could compete with him for Jiang Yao’s attention.
His wife only had eyes for him. So, even though he knew that Jiang Yao was lying, he was not worried that she would go and find another man.
He trusted Jiang Yao, and he had confidence in himself.
“Don’t leave Big Ke and Ah Lu’s line of sight. Take good care of yourself.” That was a compromise. She did not want him to ask, so he did not ask.
“You don’t have to justify your actions, but you are not allowed to lie to me in the future.” Lu Xingzhi gave her an ultimatum. “Don’t do it again.”
“Okay! I won’t do it again.” Jiang Yao’s heart warmed at his refusal to ask, but she also felt guilty for her lies.
Lu Xingzhi was right. She did not have to explain it, but she could not lie to him.
A lie would always be a lie, no matter its seriousness.
He was right; she should not have lied to him.
“I was wrong. I sincerely admit my mistake. I promise there will not be a next time.” Jiang Yao was especially serious in admitting her mistake to Lu Xingzhi.
Lu Xingzhi was pleased with his wife’s willingness to accept her mistake. “Come back as soon as you’re done.”
After she ended the call with Lu Xingzhi, Jiang Yao clutched her pounding heart. She had been dumb enough to lie to Lu Xingzhi. That guy’s mind was like a detective, and none of her methods could deceive him.
That guy undoubtedly knew she was lying the previous night, but he could not bring himself to confront her. He did, however, want to know where she was, so he contacted her at that moment to put her to the test. He did not expect her to be so stupid as to lie to him, so he exposed her.
