Chapter 21: The Cruel Truth
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
But as a matter of fact… was giving the thing back to the Lu Family Lu Zijia’s real purpose?
Of course not.
The wooden placard she had just thrown away was made of devil wood, which was full of strong energy of misfortune.
The one who was wearing it would not only get less and less lucky but also gradually become weak and feeble.
If the original host had not been born at a special hour, she would have dropped dead at the age of 19 after being soaked in this kind of misfortune energy for so long.
Unfortunately, even if the original host did not lose her life because of the energy of misfortune, her life still ended at the pretty age of 19.
Lu Bochuan had given Du Xiangjun one wooden placard. Yet when Du Xiangjun learned of Lu Bochuan’s affair, she threw the wooden placard away directly.
The original host, however, who had been dreaming of getting her father’s love, cherished this lethal wooden placard as a treasure.
If the original host had learned of this cruel truth, she would have been totally devastated!
Du Xiangjun did not ask anything more when she thought that her daughter just wanted to get rid of the Lu Family. Instead, she felt even more guilty and sorry for her daughter.
Du Xiangjun had called the taxi ahead of time. However, the taxi could not get into the villa zone, so the mother and the daughter had no choice but to walk out of the zone.
Several guards, who were standing at the gate, could not help but start to guess what had happened to the mother and the daughter as they saw them walking towards the gate with their luggage. The guards showed a look of sympathy towards them.
However, the guards could not do anything to offend the Lu Family, even if they felt sorry for them. After all, they still needed their work.
The guard who had lent money to Lu Zijia a while ago had a very complicated look on his face at the sight of the mother and daughter.
“Mrs. Lu, Second Lady, let me help you.”
After a moment of struggling, the guard could not help but step forward and help them with the luggage.
Du Xiangjun knew who this guard was. Normally he looked very fierce, and she assumed that he was not an easygoing man.
But it seemed that he was quite kind-hearted.
Well, you could never judge a person by his or her looks only.
Lu Zijia turned down the guard’s helping hand and scooped out the 100 bill from her pocket that she had prepared.
She found this note when she was packing a while ago.
“Thanks for your 100 yuan,” Lu Zijia said as she passed the note to him.
The guard waved his hand, “It is okay, Miss Lu, no need to give it back to me. 100 isn’t much.”
Actually, 100 was a lot for the guard, but he thought that Lu Zijia and her mother must have left home without much and that they might not have much money with them. So if the 100 yuan was helpful, then they should keep it.
He always remembered how Mrs. Lu defended him when he first came to this post so that he was able to keep this job to the present day.
Therefore, even if what he offered was little, he would still do whatever he could to help them.
“I borrowed your money, so I need to give it back.”
Lu Zijia stuffed the note into his hands, paused, and said, “You are becoming a father soon, and it costs a great deal to raise a child. 100 isn’t much but if you keep on saving money, it will become increasingly enough for you to buy stuff.”
The guard got confused by her words. He spilled out subconsciously.
“What? But I haven’t got any children!”
He did expect to get a child soon, but he had been married for five years and nothing was happening to his wife’s belly.
Because of that, his parents started to have some negative opinions against his wife, which made him quite embarrassed and stuck between the two sides.
But even if that was the case, he had never thought about divorcing her or marrying anyone else.
Apart from the guard himself, even Du Xiangjun got quite confused.
She knew her daughter pretty well. She barely spoke with people, and she never had any friends. Why would she know that a guard at the gate was becoming a father soon?
