“Believe me, I can definitely take good care of myself.
I wont go in and I wont even stand at the door.
Ill just stand a distance away or even at the door of the He familys next-door neighbor! What do you think~” Qiao Mei looked at Xia Zhe eagerly.
As long as she was in the area near the He familys house, she would be able to see what was going on inside.
Even after He Ning moved away, the He family still maintained the habit of growing flowers and plants at the house.
Every year during the new year period, He Ning would come back for a gathering with his two eldest brothers.
For the sake of He Nings health, they had always maintained the house based on what He Ning needed.
They were worried that any changes might cause He Ning to fall ill if he suddenly came for a visit.
Qiao Mei had found out that she could now use plants to see things within a six-kilometer radius.
However, if she wanted to see clearly, she had to do it within a range of 500 meters.
Otherwise, she would not be able to see or hear clearly as there would be very serious noise interference.
Xia Zhe said gently, “What if whats going to happen today turns out exactly the same as what happened to the Jiang family 10 years ago Be good and stay at home.
Ill be back to accompany you soon.”
“Im not that weak! I wasnt even afraid when the earthquake happened back then! This is such a small matter!” Qiao Mei said.
Xia Zhe frowned and said, “This is different from what happened that time.
The last time, it was an unavoidable natural disaster and there were very few people around.
I was also by your side.
This time round, if there are many people fighting in the He familys house, how can I protect you What if you get pushed around and fall down What if He Ning holds you hostage”
Xia Zhe could already imagine countless scenarios where Qiao Mei could get injured and did not dare to think further.
He would not bring Qiao Mei along so that she would not get hurt at all.
“But if I dont face these things, how can I protect our children” Qiao Mei said as she looked at Xia Zhe with a serious expression.
“Second Aunt-in-law and Third Aunt-in-law just take care of their children by staying at home.
Even my mother never cares about such things.
Theyre all doing fine! Weve all grown up well!” Xia Zhe felt so anxious that he stood up.
Qiao Mei looked at Xia Zhe and felt a little shaken.
She was not a helpless woman who could only stay at home to take care of the family.
Xia Zhe also realized that he had spoken too harshly and quickly explained, “Thats not what I mean… Im just worried about you…”
Qiao Mei also understood that Xia Zhe had said those words in a moment of anxiety.
She held Xia Zhes hand and said, “You cant protect me all the time.
Besides, He Ning is eyeing us covetously now.
You know very well what he wants to do, so I must develop the ability to protect myself and our children.
Only then can you feel at ease.”
He would be returning to the army in half a months time.
Given Qiao Meis current condition, she would not be able to join him as a military spouse yet.
When she eventually returned to Foshan Village to look for her grandfather, there would also be no one around to protect her.
“Alright, Ill bring you there.” Xia Zhe gave it some consideration and finally decided to bring Qiao Mei with him.
