“Aye, Mom, Dad, you don’t need to keep asking!” Cheng Xiao Xiao’s cheeks
were burning up. She pouted and said, “Just… just ignore him!”
Even though Cheng Xiao Xiao grew up in the 21st
was no stranger to love affairs, but it was still difficult to talk about it
with her parents. So she decided to just keep her mouth shut!
Having experienced that themselves, the parents could already tell from
Cheng Xiao Xiao’s shy demeaner that she was indeed quite fond of Mo Xuanzun.
She just wouldn’t admit to it was all.
Luckily Cheng Biyuan found this guye
quite acceptable so far and
Mrs. Cheng had only heard good things about him and already has a good
impression even before she has met him. What remained unknown was what the guye
would think should he ever found out he was so popular!
Cheng Biyuan and Mrs. Cheng exchanged a look and both saw the smile in
each other’s eyes.
“Xiao Xiao, why don’t you bring him over so I can meet him too!” Mrs.
Cheng was very happy that her daughter finally found someone she was interested
“Mom, he’s a tool! It’s better that you don’t meet him!” Cheng Xiao Xiao
did not want to address her mother’s question. She was already fidgeting in her
Mrs. Cheng wasn’t going to let her off the hook so easily and continued
saying, “Well, I must meet him sooner or later. Xiao Xiao, since he had already
announced publicly that you are a couple, that is what people think now. If you
are both into each other, you must tell him and ask him to have his family pay
us a visit and we will make this official.”
“Mom, what are you talking about?!” Cheng Xiao Xiao protested loudly.
Her mother made her feel that she was unwanted merchandize and she just wanted
to wrap her up in a nice bow tie and gift her away.
Her daughter’s reaction toward the subject displeased Mrs. Cheng, “Xiao
Xiao, mom is telling you as I see it. He addressed to your father as
father-in-law in front of everyone. Now he is staying at our place. If we don’t
quickly finalize this betrothal, there will be too much rumors fly around about
“Um, mom, just let me be. I don’t care what others have to say about
me!” Cheng Xiao Xiao face was beet red and she couldn’t make eye contacts with
her parents. Standing up, she announced, “Mom, Dad, I am going to go talk to
Old Man Ying!”
She turned around and ran off before her parents could respond. She did
not want to continue engaging in the subject that drove her insane.
Mrs. Cheng chuckled and scolded after seeing her daughter running away
from the subject, “This kid, she wouldn’t even spend some time to chitchat with
“XIao XIao is all grown up now. You don’t need to worry too much about
Cheng Biyuan took a look at his wife and added, “You shouldn’t have said
to her what you said earlier. She is a girl after all, how was she supposed to
bring up that subject? You should bring it up to Mo Xuanzun when you see him.
If he truly wanted to be with XIao XIao, have him mentioned that to his family.
One way or another, they need to make this official.”
, I know!” responded Mrs. Cheng tenderly.
Whilst the two were discussing about their daughter, there was someone
else waiting in their courtyard as though he was anticipating someone’s arrival.
Shortly, he saw the one who hadn’t been gone for long returning. He was
happily inside and jumped out!
As Cheng Xiao Xiao was leaving her parents’ courtyard, she was too busy
cussing out another someone so she didn’t pay too much attention to her
surrounding and she ran straight into someone.
“Ouch, XIao XIao, why did you slam into me?”
A familiar smell surrounded her and she immediately pushed him away. She
looked at her dubiously and asked, “I thought you were the one who slammed into
“What? I was standing here the entire time! You weren’t watching where
you were going and slammed into me!” Mo Xuanzun pouted and made an
