MY MILITARY HUSBAND - Season 9 Episode 15
Qiao Nan was supposed to be dating Zhai Sheng. That day, Qiao Nan had seen for herself that Ding Jiayi had a car accident. She was also trapped in the crowd for half an hour outside of Ping Cheng High School. She should have panicked, becoming anxious, and worried, no?
Qiu Chenxi was baffled. She could not understand why Qiao Nan was able to maintain her usual standard and achieve such good grades! Even if other students had extraordinary performances, they would not be able to achieve results like hers!
At the thought of Qiao Nan’s results for the college entrance examination, Qiu Chenxi could not help but feel that she had suffered a crushing defeat. She felt as if she had no hopes of challenging her again.
Qiu Chenxi sat quietly for an hour. She then stood up and went into Qi Minlan’s room. “Mom, you have to divorce Dad as soon as possible. You only have one month’s time to solve this problem. If not, we will be left with nothing.”
“What is the matter?” Qi Minlan was shocked. Why would her daughter want her to get a divorce for no apparent reason? “If I divorce your dad, his woman outside will stand to gain!”
Back then, she did not marry Qiu Qin out of love. Now that Qiu Qin had no use of her, he wanted to kick her away and be with another woman. She would not allow him to abandon her after making use of her.
“We don’t know for sure who will stand to gain from the divorce. I heard that uncle has been doing well in Ping Cheng. His prospects are as good as when he was in the army. Mom, let’s go back to Ping Cheng and seek refuge from uncle.” It was normal for the daughters in the family to seek refuge from their parents after they divorced.
Therefore, Qi Minlan and Qiao Dongliang made up their minds to file for a divorce on the same day and time. They handed the divorce agreements to their partners. “Sign it!!
“I won’t sign it!”
Ding Jiayi could no longer put up with her pretenses. She tore the divorce agreement to pieces. “Qiao Dongliang, you are heartless. I have turned from a lady to a faded old woman because of you. You must be having a happy time. Have you taken a fancy to other women and thus want to abandon me? Let me tell you, I will not make it easy for you. If you want a divorce, fine! But you have to give me fifty thousand yuan!”
Despite having worked for so many years, Qiao Dongliang only saved five thousand yuan, and that had been used up by Ding Jiayi. Ding Jiayi decided to demand an exorbitant amount of money from the divorce. She wanted Qiao Dongliang to pay her fifty thousand yuan as divorce fees. “I don’t care if you borrow the money or get it through some other means. You have to give me fifty thousand yuan, and the Qiao family’s residence will be mine. Only then will I agree to a divorce. Since I can’t keep you with me, I will keep your money. I won’t pay a single cent of the money that I spent during the hospital stay. You will have to pay the full amount!”
It was fine that Qiao Dongliang wanted a divorce. She would wait to see if he would agree to her conditions.
If he decided to divorce her, she would have fifty thousand yuan. She had nothing to lose!
When Qiao Dongliang was at his prime, he took ten years to earn five thousand yuan. Now that she asked for fifty thousand yuanwhich was ten times of five thousand-it would be equivalent to all the money that he could earn in this life.
“Is this what Qiao Zijin and you have discussed and come up with yesterday?” Qiao Dongliang felt bitterly disappointed. Ding Jiayi had a ‘good daughter’ indeed, and she was his daughter as well!
“Fifty thousand yuan! Ding Jiayi, where do you have the guts to ask for such a huge sum of money?!” Qiao Dongliang smiled coldly at Ding Jiayi. “You must be crazy to ask for fifty thousand yuan.”
“You may not have the money, but the Zhai family is loaded. You have such a powerful family as your in-laws. It should be easy for you to ask for fifty thousand yuan as the bride price. It is no wonder that you are so nice to Qiao Nan, that wretched girl. It turned out that she has seduced a big shot. She is still young, yet she is so shameless and seduces men. You keep picking on Zijin and me. However, Qiao Nan, who lives with you, is, in fact, a shameless and cheap girl who doesn’t know how to treasure herself. Crap!”
Ding Jiayi was enraged that Qiao Dongliang wanted a divorce. She vented her frustration on Qiao Nan. She used all the uncouth words that she knew on Qiao Nan.
Zijin was right. If not for Qiao Nan, that wretched girl, old Qiao would not ask for a divorce.
To put it bluntly, Qiao Nan had latched onto an established family like the Zhai family. She was fearful that she and Zijin would make requests of her.
Even if she and Old Qiao really ended up in a divorce, she was still Qiao Nan’s mother in this life. Qiao Nan had to accede to her requests and help her no matter what she wanted. There was no running away from it!
Ding Jiayi had it all planned. She would get the money, and she and Qiao Zijin would latch on to a powerful family like the Zhai family!
She would not miss out on any benefits.
Qiao Dongliang gave Ding Jiayi a tight slap on her face. “It seems that you need someone to knock some sense into you. If you dare to use those filthy words to scold Nan Nan again, I will make sure that you suffer!”
“…” Ding Jiayi covered the side of her face that was slapped. She was panting rapidly due to anger, but she dared not scold Qiao Nan anymore.
She did not want a divorce. But if she had to divorce, she had to get her hands on the money. She did not wish to quarrel with Qiao Dongliang and to be beaten by him.
Qiao Dongliang could not bear the sight of Ding Jiayi. He felt that his hand was dirty from slapping her. “Are you sure you don’t want a divorce and that you want fifty thousand yuan? Let me tell you, dream on! If you don’t agree to the divorce, I will file for divorce by litigation. It is no big deal. Ever since I married you, I have been embarrassed thoroughly. I believe that the law will protect its people. It will not be used on scoundrels like you. I will not fork out fifty thousand yuan. Let’s see whether we can be divorced or not!”
“Qiao Dongliang, let me warn you, if you dare to make use of the Zhai family’s connections to divorce me, there will be no end to this. He may be the chief, but he has to obey the law and the country as well. If the Zhai family dares to bend the law for selfish ends, I will take it to the court. I will escalate it to the capital and to the president. I don’t believe that the Zhai family will destroy their future and ruin their reputation for Qiao Nan’s sake. Without fifty thousand yuan, there is no way that you can divorce me!”“Very well, very well!” Ding Jiayi had even thought of their connections with the Zhai family. Needless to say, Qiao Zijin must have taught her what to say.
If Ding Jiayi had not brought this up, Qiao Dongliang had never thought of asking the Zhai family to help him with his divorce.
Although he knew it by now, he did not intend to ask them for help either. “Is that so? We shall see if we can divorce without fifty thousand yuan. As for the Zhai family, do you think that everyone is like you and that they would want to rely on others to help them?”
Ding Jiayi panicked at Qiao Dongliang’s firm and steadfast attitude. “Zijin, you have heard my conversation with your dad. W-what should we do? Do you think your father has abandoned the thought of divorcing me or does he intend to give me fifty thousand yuan? It has to be one of the two.”
If she could not get the money and she ended up in a divorce, she would be left with nothing!
It would never do!
“Zijin, you are the one who gave me the idea. Say something now
