It was 9 on the dot when Zhao Jun felt a chill in his spine, the feeling reminded him of the time when he was told that they had discovered an inoperable growth in his grandmother’s brain. The shock made him numb for days, it took persistent cajoling from friends to get him back to as close to his formal self. Zhao Jun could hear the faint whispering from guests that were present at his wedding ceremony, soon his a felt a tap on his shoulder.
“Zhao Jun! Did you and Vera get into a fight?”
“What do you mean?! Did Vera say we fought?!”
“Answer the question! Did you or did you not fight with Vera?!”
“No, I did not get into a fight with her!”
Zhao Jun spoke through gritted teeth, he could feel anger radiating from his brother-in-law to be, both he and Lu Bing wore coordinating white suit and a pair of pants, spotless white shirt with gold cuff links and gold necktie. Zhao Jun had a faux rose-colored flower pinned to the lapel of his suit. While Lu Bing’s lapel had a folded satin fabric of gold. They both had clean shaven oval faces, their hair sleeked and cut to match the occasion. One appeared calm on the surface while the other had the face of a mad bull.
“I swear! If you did anything to hurt my sister, I’ll beat the crap out of you!”
“Where is she?! Tell me!”
Not knowing what came over him, Zhao Jun reach to grab the shirt of Lu Bing in a search for answers to his assumed missing wife-to-be.
“Are they fighting?”
At the background hushed whispers from the guest found their way to the ears of Lu Bing and his aggressor.
