TWQQF ch 51.2 - Has Fiancee

The entire family sat around and enjoyed dinner together.

Shortly after dinner, the young ones were rushed by the parents to rest in their own quarters after playing for a short while.

Cheng Xiao Xiao had matters to discuss with her parents so she stayed behind. Cheng Biyuan looked like he had something to say to her as well. Under his wife’s suggestive look, he began, “Xiao Xiao, I really shouldn’t anything, but if you are not interested in Liu Danhang, you should let him know sooner rather than later. Don’t let him have false hope!”


“Ugh…” Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t expect her father to bring this up. After a short pause, she replied, “Dad, perhaps you and mom should take care of this. I don’t really want to talk to him!”

“Silly, it’ll be more awkward for us to meddle into this!” Mrs. Cheng gave her a look and said softly.

“Ugh….” Honestly, Cheng Xiao Xiao had no interest to deal with this. It’s all but a hassle to her.

Cheng Biyuan shook his head helplessly, “Xiao Xiao, it’s not that we can’t talk to him. But he is not going to listen to us. It’s better if it comes from you. He’s a simple kid, if you do like him…”

“Stop, dad---” Cheng Xiao Xiao interrupted her father and said seriously, “He is a nice guy, but he is not my type. Don’t even joke about it!”

“Okay, so you are not interested. Then don’t hold him up. He’s not young anymore. Let him know, so his family can make arrangement to find him a nice girl!”

Cheng Biyuan nodded, as though he had just remembered something, he sighed, “I have mentioned your marriage with brother Gu1 before. I’ll write him a letter in a few days and see what’s his thoughts now. If he will still honor our arrangement, you will be marrying into the Gu’s!”

“Dad, are you kidding? How come I have never heard you mention this before?” Cheng Xiao Xiao’s eyes widened in disbelief.

Certainly, Cheng Xiao Xiao couldn’t belief this fiancĂ© that popped out of nowhere. Did that mean she wouldn’t be able to pick for herself?

What if he’s a moron?

From what she had mean, all fiances seem too be morons. What if she run into one like those depicted in dramas?

“Of course!” Cheng Biyuan couldn’t help but smiled after seeing his daughter’s surprised look. “Don’t worry, Xiao Xiao. The Gu’s are a big family. Brother Gu and I grew up together, I don’t think he will back out of our arrangement!”

“But I want him to!” Cheng Xiao Xiao couldn’t help but muttered under her breathe.

Naturally, Mr. and Mrs. Cheng could hear what she had said. Mrs. Cheng smiled tenderly, Mr. Cheng wasn’t sure what to make out of it, “Don’t be silly, it’s a very shameful thing when someone cancel your marriage arrangement! What do you mean by you want it to be annulled? Don’t you want to get married?”

“So what if I don’t get married? Dad, don’t tell me you are worried about supporting me!” Cheng Xiao Xiao pouted and continued, “I think it’s better if you ask them to annul the arrangement. If I want to get married, I will look for my own husband. I don’t want to marry someone I have never met!”

“You guys have met before!” Said Mrs. Cheng quickly.

Cheng Xiao Xiao paused and smiled, “Mom, you forgot, I don’t have any of my past memories. So I don’t remember any pampered Mr. Gu. I don’t know him and I don’t want to get to know him!”

“Nonsense. Even if you don’t like him, you will still have to meet him first before you make that decision!” Cheng Biyuan didn’t want his daughter to be dumped. “Oh right, you said there’s something you wanted to tell us before dinner. What was it?”
