I Have a Mansion in the Post-apocalyptic World - Chapter 1608
The instant Liu Yao stepped through the portal, she felt like her perception of the world had been shattered.
The dim-yellow dome shrouded the entire city and towering buildings that pierced into the clouds were connected together. Although the charred windows and broken walls did not suggest anyone lived there, it was still possible to see through the ruins how prosperous this place used to be.
“Did an earthquake happen here?” Liu Yao said, in a state of daze.
“Something more serious than an earthquake happened,” Jiang Chen smiled at Liu Yao who was in a sluggish state and said when he looked at the tall buildings in the distance. “You can’t tell right, but this is Wanghai… Although it is Wanghai a century from now.”
Liu Yao was stunned.
Her beautiful pupils widened with shock and disbelief was written all over her face.
This… is Wanghai?
Everything she saw before her eyes were beyond her imagination.
It took a while for her to digest the huge amount of information as she twisted her stiff neck and looked at Jiang Chen blankly.
“Yes,” Jiang Chen nodded and said with a smile, “Most of the technology of Future Group comes from here, or is developed based on here. So, don’t consider me as great…I’m just standing on the giant’s corpse.”
“Don’t say that. Ordinary people can’t bring the giant back to life even if they are standing on the giant’s corpse.” A sweet voice came from behind, and it was Xiaorou in a lavender dress. She walked to the side of Jiang Chen with a smile. “If it was someone else, they might not be able to do it.”
Liu Yao didn’t notice what Xiaorou had just said, because her attention at the moment had been completely captured by this strange world. As if she was in a dream, everything here was beyond her imagination
Liu Yao watched the soldiers that walked by in a row and asked in a daze.
“What are those people… doing?”
“If it was before, they would probably be on duty, but now…they should be rehearsing,” When he said this, the expression on Jiang Chen’s face was slightly embarrassed.
His subordinates were so enthusiastic.
After they heard that the General was going to be married, everyone from the General’s Mansion to the field officers seemed to be completely energized. They were so excited everyday and had nowhere to vent their energy. Every day, when there was nothing to do, they would go out to rehearse, and it was grander than the military parade.
“Rehearsal?” Liu Yao looked at Jiang Chen with confusion in her eyes
“Um… because of the wedding,” Jiang Chen said.
Liu Yao was slightly depressed when she heard the word wedding.
She opened her mouth, but in the end, she closed it again as she swallowed back the words that rushed to her.
Xiaorou sensibly noticed the hesitation on Liu Yao’s face was because of herself, so she smiled and turned away wittily.
As Liu Yao watched Xiaorou’s back as she walked away, she sensed the silence that lingered between the two of them and said softly.
“You promised me one thing…”
“I want…” She bit her lower lip lightly, lowered her head because of the unspeakable words, and said with a voice that was so weak that it was almost inaudible, “Give me a child… Don’t get me wrong. I didn’t mean that…I will raise him up by myself, I won’t use him to trouble you, I just want to…”
When she finished the sentence, it exhausted Liu Yao’s strength.
She knew that her request was excessive, and it could even be said to be unreasonable. When she said it, she was prepared to be rejected. After all, she knew very well that her identity was just his mistress, and things like illegitimate children have always been accompanied by endless troubles…
Although she expected that he would say that, she couldn’t stop the tears from rolling out of her eyes.
She lowered her head, in an attempt to block her eyes with her bangs, as she suppressed the sadness that was about to overwhelm her. Then she whispered in a trembling voice.
“Because I am a greedy person, I can’t change this terrible quality about me.” Jiang Chen sighed softly, “I have a hunch that if I promise you, you may leave me forever… ”
Is that not good?
Liu Yao looked at Jiang Chen, and her eyes that could speak seemed to ask Jiang Chen.
“Of course it’s not good.” Jiang Chen rubbed her hair, then gently lifted her face covered in tears. He gazed into the misty eyes before a smirk suddenly appeared at the corner of his mouth.” What’s more, after I let you see my secrets, do you think I will let you go?”
The tears seemed to rush out like a waterfall and turned the beautiful eyelashes wet.
Happiness came so suddenly that it exceeded Liu Yao’s expectations.
She dove into Jiang Chen’s chest, as joyous tears rolled down her cheeks. The beautiful and pristine teeth sunk into Jiang Chen’s shoulder, as if she wanted to return the grievances and sorrows she experienced for the past few days.
From the choked-up voice, she squeezed out intermittent words.
“You… bad person.”
With the feeling of heat rolling down his neck, as well as the pain from his shoulder, Jiang Chen cracked a grin, then gently placed his hands behind Liu Yao’s back and reminded softly.
“The word devil is more appropriate.”
From the beginning of preparations to the formal implementation, this wedding preparation already took more than a month.
Although Jiang Chen himself did not mean to be extravagant, it was obviously impossible for him as the NAC General to keep a low profile on this matter.
Especially Jiang Chen’s subordinates. They worried about his wedding more than he himself. Since a month ago, preparations had been in full swing, and they even specially renovated the Century Auditorium in downtown Wanghai, as well as the nearby streets that had not had time to be renovated.
It was rumored that before the war, this was the place where the Pan-Asia Cooperation Economic Forum was held. Therefore, after the outbreak of the war, this place was specifically taken care of by missiles and artilleries. However, the NAC engineering team took less than half a month to renovate this place.
Through the wasteland, the ridiculous efficiency was only possible in the hands of the NAC engineering team.
The preparation of the materials needed for the wedding ceremony was personally handled by Wang Qing, the Minister of Logistics.
The pearls to decorate the wedding dresses were shipped from the Outpost Town on the West Coast of North America. The diamonds on the diamond rings came from the South African Union diamond mine. The red carpet was taken from the fluff of the mutated blood lion. The utensils and tableware on the wedding table were all made out of pure silver, even the tablecloth on the dining table, was made of fine Balinese yarn…
Not only that, but Wang Qing also instructed the craftsmen in the Sixth Street to use fine velvet and exquisite wood to create a bed with a width of 12 meters and to make matching bedding for Jiang Chen. In order to move it into the mansion, the bed had to be split it into twelve parts and a wall had to be taken down.
As for the purpose of the bed…
Just by looking at the length, it goes without saying.
Apart from it being luxurious and extravagant, Jiang Chen couldn’t find a more suitable word to describe this wedding.
When he went to see Wang Qing and asked if it was too much, he got this answer…
“It’s not an exaggeration at all.. You are the General of NAC, and your wedding is the wedding of the entire NAC. You represent not only yourself, but also the entire New Pan-Asia Cooperation,” Wang Qing looked at Jiang Chen, who had sought her opinion, and the corner of her mouth curled up as she winked playfully, “What’s more, without a grand wedding, how can you be worthy of your seven beautiful wives?”
