Late Wedding – Chapter 6 – Little satisfaction

Chapter 6 – Little satisfaction

“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.”
― Seneca ―

Don’t look at Wen Man’s usual warmth. Once it’s true like this, the two crescent eyes behind the big black glasses can bluff the place of life.

Jiang Yan didn’t dare to say a little at this moment anyway. The burning smell from the pot made him realize how many mistakes he had made. But before going out, he didn’t forget to find a pair of gloves everywhere, handed them to her, and said cautiously: “Wear them, be careful not to burn your hands again.”

So, Wen Man raised his pretty eyebrows and finally recognized him. Without taking over the gloves, she just asked: “Why are you here, Mr. Jiang?”

“I am Du Yu’s friend.” Jiang Yan heard her read Mr. Jiang, knowing that she remembered himself, and smiled handsomely, “I didn’t expect to meet you here.”

“How did you meet Du Yu?” Wen Man’s eyes were pointed.

“I knew Du Yu before.” Jiang Yan was about to poke a hole in her face as she stared at him, keeping his style, and smiling.

Wen Man didn’t know how to describe him, saying that he was a shabby man, but the courage of this kind of gesture was nothing like an ordinary family member. So, she twisted her eyebrows a little, and whispered: “If you are really friends with my senior, then I really misunderstood you. After all, the last time you went back to the Wen family, it seemed that your friends were all rich people.”

“How is it possible that my friends are all rich people? Especially with income like mine.” Jiang Yan raised his eyebrows slightly unhappy when she heard her say this.

Wen Man thought for a long time, but couldn’t catch any suspicious points in his words, and said with a long sigh: “So, are you really Du Yu’s friend?”

Seeing that she believed in himself, Jiang Yan nodded: “Since we are all friends of Du Yu, then we are also friends.”

If Wen Man can’t hear the meaning of this, that’s weird. Therefore, the white and tender skin of her pointed little face was slightly red, and it dimmed again when she thought of her mother Xu Yu’e’s reprimand that night.

Although she herself is so old, she shouldn’t marry herself casually. Of course, it doesn’t depend on whether the other party has money, but the character of a man is ultimately the most important thing. But this person is not going to mention it. The worst thing is that it seems that only good looks are desirable.

Jiang Yan saw her face red and white, and asked in a low voice: “What’s the matter?”

“Mr. Jiang, I have to clarify if there is something. I don’t think I and you are suitable. I believe your world is better than mine. You should have had many girlfriends.”

“Who said that I have many girlfriends?” Jiang Yan seemed to be a little angry when she interrupted her, his brows frowned, and his face turned to one side and said in a deep voice, “I thought you and your family People are different, and they don’t look at me with colored eyes.”

Wen Man should have been blocked by the slightly heavier sentence behind him, and seeing the look in front of him, he was not at all frivolous, and today he is not as fashionable as he was at the dinner gathering that night, just like Du Yu. Wearing a normal shirt and blue and black pants, showing some elegant student spirit.

Jiang Yan reached into his trouser pocket. After moving a little his eyebrows, he took out a simple cowhide envelope, slapped it into her hand, and turned around and walked out of the kitchen.

In the living room, Du Yu saw him come out and asked, “What’s wrong, aren’t you helping in the kitchen?”

“I accidentally burnt the vegetables.”

“Burning! You burnt the vegetables?”

Du Yu’s voice suddenly increased, and Jiang Yan was slightly surprised.

“Oh. The dishes cooked by Man Man are exquisite and very delicious.” Du Yu touched his chest somewhere, distressed that the delicacy at noon was missing one dish.

Jiang Yan saw someone feel distressed because of the food for the first time, and was slightly surprised again: “Is it delicious?”

“Very delicious.” Du Yu raised a finger mysteriously, “As long as you have eaten it once, you are sure to be infatuated.”

Speaking of being very delicious, Jiang Yan licked his tongue to the corner of his mouth, looking back at the instant noodles Wen Man had made for him that night, the taste was unparalleled.

But Du Yu put his hand on his shoulder and asked, “Are you making Man Man angry?”

Jiang Yan mumbled, thinking that when Wen Man was angry, those eyes were quite scary.

“How did you make her angry?” Du Yu comforted him on the one hand and asked carefully about the whole process on the other.

“I’m worried about her hand.” Jiang Yan slowly explained the reason.

Du Yu understood what was going on and smiled and asked him not to worry at all, “Man Man knows better than us when it comes to kitchen work. She has never been burnt for so many years. She knows exactly how hot it is. By the way, she will not be burned.”

Jiang Yan listened to him repeatedly assuring that his handsome eyes still looked at the kitchen door again and again.

Seeing him like this, Du Yu couldn’t help but recalled himself when he fell in love with his wife Chu Xia, so he believed a little bit about what he said.

After half an hour, the meal was officially opened.

Four people are sitting around a small square table. After Chu Xia placing the last dish in the middle, she patted her hands and said, “Come on everyone, let’s start to enjoy our wonderful lunch.”

That’s what I said, Du Yu and Chu Xia had a good heart, and they didn’t move their chopsticks immediately. Du Yu spooned a bowl of soup and put it in front of Jiang Yan, and said, “Try it.”

Wen Man tufted her eyebrows, touched her hand down, and she could touch the cowhide envelope in her pocket.

Jiang Yan, who was sitting across from her, picked up the small soup bowl, and after taking a sip slowly, a pair of clear eyes looked over through the mist from the mouth of the bowl.

The moment Wen Man received his gaze, she yanked her head down, put her hand in her jacket pocket and grabbed the envelope, and frowned sharply.

Chu Xia and Du Yu looked at them peacefully as if they were looking at each other, smiled at each other, and raised their chopsticks.

“Where does Jiang Yan work?” Chu Xia was a substitute for the buddies to inquire about each other’s situation.

“I go to school and work in Beijing.” Jiang Yan replied, “So if you are going to Beijing this time, I can be a tour guide.”

“What about the specific job?”

“For the time being in the unit of the army, doing jerseys.” Jiang Yan said, “Because it is an unstable public office, so I don’t have as much money as other friends.”

“But not afraid. At least you have a job now. My first request of my husband is also, don’t be lazy.” Chu Xia smiled.

Wen Man raised her eyebrows when she heard this. Who even told her a few days ago that she couldn’t find a man without three things, now?

Moreover, don’t look at the three people talking and laughing, the chopsticks never stopped for a moment, and the whole eight dishes and one soup had been swept by these three people in ten minutes. Of course, Chu Xia and Du Yu ate a lot every time it was her turn to cook. Today is no exception. However, this newcomer is like that night, as if he has been hungry for eight lifetimes, after the first bite, immediately drank three bowls of soup in one breath.

To this end, she bent her crescent-shaped eyes contentedly, pushed the big black glasses on the bridge of her nose, and covered herself.

CHAPTER 7 – LOVE LETTER

Late Wedding – Chapter 5 – Intentional encounter

Chapter 5 – Intentional encounter

“Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together,but do so with all your heart.”
― Marcus Aurelius ―

Wen Man didn’t know about Jiang Yan’s visit. Every time she works, even if the sky is thunder, she will not be distracted.  

When she got off work, Wen Man washed her hands at the sink. Chu Xia came over and said to her, “Man Man, are you free this weekend?”

“Anything that I can help you?” Wen Man asked.  

“My husband came back from a business trip and wanted to eat a big meal.” When Chu Xia said this, her eyelids kept blinking.  

Wen Man looked at her with her head tilted: “Chu Xia, what’s wrong with your eyes?”

“It’s okay! Maybe I just ran back from the outside and got into a little sand, and it was okay with a blink of an eye.” Chu Xia Forte pretended to rub her eyes and spoke.

“Okay. Since your husband is back, if you want to reward him, I suggest you still engage in a few dishes of home-cooked food in this season. Because in the spring, it is better to have a lighter diet.” Wen Man knew exactly why her good friend said this, and she planned it for her good friend.

“Man Man. You know, I’m not familiar with cooking or something, otherwise you come and help me.” Chu Xia pulled her hand and asked sincerely.  

 Wen Man smiled and said, “Okay, my dear Chu Xia.”

Chu Xia is Wen Man’s best friend. I remember that when Wen Man was in college, she suddenly fell ill and didn’t dare to tell her family that it was Chu Xia who took care of her day and night in the hospital for a week. She also used her own scholarship to help Wen Man, who had no money to pay a large amount of medical expenses. From that time on, Wen Man determined that no matter what request Chu Xia had, she would never refuse it. As for the husband of Chu Xia, Du Yu, he was a senior they met in college. He is two years older than them. Although he doesn’t look very good, he is generous and honest. The most important thing is that he loves his wife’s Chu Xia very much. He advocates that all family expenses should be paid by men. Therefore, the wages received by Chu Xia never need to be paid to the family and used by oneself. If the husband is like this, what can the wife ask for? Therefore, Wen Man’s goal to find a man is this kind of good temperament, and everything else is secondary. Unfortunately, she never met one.

On the weekend, Wen Man took a bag of apples and went to Chu Xia’s home.

Chu Xia lived with her husband and rented a house of tens of square meters. It’s not that Chu Xia and her husband don’t want to buy a house, but they just don’t know where they want to officially settle down. This city cannot be said to be bad, but the hometowns of Chu Xia and Du Yu are not in this city. The two couples are still young and want to work together for a better world. So long ago, the two of them had the idea to go to Beijing to build their own universe. Today, Du Yu has found a better job in Beijing, and wants to take his wife to the north soon. Chu Xia has also agreed and inform the company that she might leave at any time.

On the way to Chu Xia’s home, Wen Man thought about Beijing. She also wanted to follow Chu Xia to Beijing. Beijing is the national cultural centre. As an artist, she naturally thinks of Beijing. As Chu Xia said, Wen’s family is full of things, and she can’t get married at home anyway. Being seen will only embarrass her parents. It’s better to go abroad to avoid suspicion.

If she wants to go, it’s best to go with Chu Xia and have a care.

“Cooking is at once child’s play and adult joy. And cooking done with care is an act of love.”
― Craig Claiborne

Wen Man rang the doorbell, and Chu Xia came over to open the door for her and said, “Come in. My husband is going to bring a friend home by the way.”

“Four people?” Wen Man asked.

“Yes.”

Put the picked apples into the refrigerator. After Wen Man washed her hands, she went into the kitchen to help Chu Xia prepare lunch. With Man Man’s help’, Chu Xia only helped in the kitchen for a while then walked out, set the table and chairs, put the tableware, and cleaned around the house by the way. After all, there were guests who wanted to come over.

When it was almost time, Chu Xia heard the click of the door lock, and Chu Xia immediately walked to the door. After the door opened, facing the two men standing in front of the door, she put her finger to her lips and said, “Man Man doesn’t know yet. I didn’t tell her.”

“What are you afraid of?” Du Yu grabbed his wife’s hand and smiled heartily in a manly style. “Jiang Yan is indeed our friend now.”

So, the person following Du Yu is Jiang Yan.

Speaking of Jiang Yan met Chu Xia in Wen Man’s company that day, and after expressing his intentions, he asked Chu Xia about Wen Man. Chu Xia learned that this man was not a real shabby prince, and that she was very concerned about her buddies, so she revealed a little bit of Man Man’s hobby and so on. After seeing what happened to Wen’s house that night, Jiang Yan knew that Wen Man was not a frivolous woman who could get an appointment or date casually, so he asked for Chu Xia some trick. Chu Xia immediately said, “Let’s have a meal together.”

The idea of Chu Xia is: If this man can really taste the goodness of Wen Man from Wen Man’s meal, then there is absolutely no problem entrusting Wen Man to this man. At the beginning, because of Wen Man’s meal, she became Wen Man’s most dedicated best friend. Wen Man really good in cooking, most of the food she cooked like drugs, always make us miss her cook. It is also because Wen Man’s family is usually constantly picky about her cooking, which leads to her continuous improvement and continuous progress, so that she has today’s cooking skills.

After the two men entered the door, they asked, “Do you need any help?”

Chu Xia thought about it, and said, “Do you want to drink? There is a bottle of red wine left in the house. Let’s open it.”

Because there is no special corkscrew for red wine, the two men delved into using other tools to pry open the corks of wine bottles.

Wen Man suddenly shouted in the kitchen: “Chu Xia, come and help!”

It just so happened that Chu Xia entered the room, looking for something, but couldn’t hear it. Du Yu thought about it carefully, pouted his lips toward Jiang Yan and motioned. Jiang Yan accepted this kind offer with a smile and walked into the kitchen alone.

The kitchen of Chu Xia is a long strip, and the passage is a bit narrow, so two people can barely stand side by side. When Jiang Yan walked in, he saw the ponytail on the back of Wen Man’s head turned into a small bun, clamped by a green hairpin, and the little woman was full of charm. He stagnated and paused at the door. The rich aroma of the soup rushed toward him to make him energetic, and the beautiful woman in front of him seemed to be surrounded by clouds.

“Chu Xia!” Wen Man was the ear of the soup pot on the stove with two hands, and cried, “bring over the raw onions on my scratching board, hurry up!”

Waking up by the sound, Jiang Yan took a closer look at this moment and found that her two hands holding the soup pot were burnt red. This frightened him. After a stride, he grabbed the soup pot in her hand and put it back on the stove, then took her two wrists and pulled it under the faucet.

Splashing———–the water hit the shrimp red skin, and it turned white after a short while.

He exhaled deeply: Fortunately, nothing happened. However, soon, his spine swished into coldness, seeing Wen Man’s crescent eyes fixed on his face. Those cold sober eyes seemed to have caught the thief. Perhaps he was guilty of the thief. He thought so, and his hair stood up, and he hurriedly let go of her hand and explained: “I, I didn’t mean to—”

However, Wen Man ignored him. Instead, she immediately turned off the stove as soon as she smelled the scorching smell. After opening the lid and seeing the burnt vegetables, she suddenly turned to face him: “Get out! Don’t enter my kitchen in the future!”

Chapter 4 – Want to take her seriously

“Even if you cannot change all the people around you, you can change the people you choose to be around.
Life is too short to waste your time on people who don’t respect, appreciate, and value you.
Spend your life with people who make you smile, laugh, and feel loved.”

“What are you angry about?” Mo Wen Yang drove the Dong Feng Feng Shen sedan that had just bought one hundred thousand yuan. He was refreshed. He dialled his bangs with one hand and said Jiang Yan with a smirk on his mouth. “This shabby prince is You have to pretend to be, and if someone makes you angry, you can’t blame others.”

“I’m not angry that people think I’m shabby prince.” Jiang Yan Ying pulled out a strong body, lying on the car chair lazily, crossed his hands on the back of his head, and the slightly hooked corners of his mouth filled the boy’s naughty taste. However, thinking of Xu Yu’e’s angry face, his piercing eyebrows frowned slightly, and the corners of his mouth flattened and said, “What about you? You stayed in Wen’s house for so long, which girl did you fancy?”

“The only thing you can see is that you caught it first?” Mo Wen Yang raised his eyebrows, knowing that the Wen family had all ran to the balcony to witness the rendezvous between a man and a woman, but unfortunately, he could not see it with his own eyes. Just ask the person concerned.

The car happened to pass by a streetlamp, and as the light flickered in front of him, Wen Man’s little white face flashed, like a warm little lamp dangling in front of him. Jiang Yan felt warm in his heart, and suddenly felt that Jiang Yan’s heart was filled with a kind of inexplicable homely warmth.

Seeing that he was completely distracted, Mo Wen Yang couldn’t help but shrink his mouth to whistle: “Hey, do you really have a crush on someone?”

Jiang Yan was startled by these words, and his eyebrows tightened again. That’s right, Wen Man is a very good girl, with a good temperament and a kind heart; but her family is top-notch. He Jiang Yan has been in the society for so many years and he has met many people, but he has never seen someone like the Wen family. For such a superb money worshiper, Eugénie Grandet also need to step down gracefully. Therefore, if he is a normal man, he would never want to have contact with Wen’s daughters.

Mo Wen Yang seemed to have guessed what he was thinking. He looked at the road conditions ahead and said casually: “It is not at all like the senior intellectual family my dad said. Maybe Wen Shi Rong and his wife and daughter pretend to be more similar, but other the elders look very vulgar briefly. As for the girls, they are actually okay.”

“When they heard that I had impoverished family, all of them ran away.” Jiang Yan didn’t want him to argue for the Wen family, and coldly told the truth.

Mo Wen Yang saw that he had made it clear that he hated the Wen family, shrugged and frowned reluctantly: “Okay buddy, let’s take it as a trip out this time. There are no wonders in the world, and there are all kinds of people, so let’s look at the excitement and see the novelty.”

“Yes, if you don’t come out like this, you won’t be able to see people like Wen family in this world.” Jiang Yan raised his handsome eyebrows, and the corners of his arrogant mouth evoked amusement. Apart from the depression, the experience of being treated and almost hungry tonight is really a strange story. Moreover, it was the Wen family who had this kind of superb quality that allowed him to discover such a strange woman as Wen Man. Thinking of the bowl of instant noodles, he licked the corner of his mouth, as if it was not the delicious bowl of instant noodles, but the taste of Wen Man. That night, Wen Man kept flashing in front of his eyes, almost occupying his dream of the night.

The next day

“The most amazing and eternal art you will ever create will be the spontaneous one”
― Sami Abouzid ―

Wen Man arrived at the company the next day and talked to Chu Xia about the blind date last night. He also touched his stomach and said, “I almost starved to death.”

“Who told you not to eat Japanese sushi with me?” Chu Xia raised her eyebrows, not ready to sympathize with her, “Why, did you miss the handsome guy at the expense of his belly?”

“There are handsome guys.” Wen Man thought about the shabby prince last night, and a sigh was pulled from his lips, “Unfortunately, he is not rich.”

“It doesn’t matter if you don’t have money, you just have a car and a house.” Chu Xia analyzed for the buddies, and now the renminbi is depreciating, buying a house is the best way to keep the value.

“He doesn’t have a house or a car, anyway, everyone in our family looks down on him.” Wen Man “hey” deeply. This sigh is not that there is no money in the poor settlement, but how can this poor settlement be so proud.

Three no poor people. Chu Xia also sighed deeply and put her hand on the shoulder of her best friend: “Man Man, listen to me, this man who has nothing, really can’t get married.”

“What nonsense are you talking about? I didn’t like him.” Wen Man finished speaking, moved her hand away, tied an apron and went to work in the mounting room.

In the afternoon of the same day, after Jiang Yan found out which company Wen Man was employed in, he urged Mo Wen Yang to take him to see it.

Mo Wen Yang was surrounded by a group of people last night, and had no time to glance at Wen Man. He had long wanted to see what the woman who had captured Jiang Yan looked like, and for this reason he was filled with curiosity about Wen Man. He agreed to Jiang Yan and hurriedly drove the car to the company where Wen Man was located. First, he ran into Chu Xia at the door holding the paperwork, so he asked about Wen Man’s whereabouts after showing his identity.

Chu Xia saw the two of them dressed very well and came over in a car, “Hey”: Didn’t Man Man say that it was a shabby settlement? Could this be the handsome guy Wen Man said last night?

“Didn’t Wen Man work here?” Mo Wen Yang saw that she never said a word, and he couldn’t help but feel puzzled.

At this moment, Jiang Yan dazzled the sight of the beautiful woman, left his buddy Mo Wenyang, and walked straight to the other side of the aisle in the office building.

In the indoor floor-to-ceiling windows installed across the office building, Wen Man’s slender and soft figure lay on the workbench, like a sculpture under the fluorescent lamp, with a layer of fine sweat already secreted from the tip of his small nose.

The most difficult part of the mounting work lies in patience and care. A little carelessness will ruin the original author’s efforts. Therefore, mounting is a separate skill, and a good mounting master has the same value as an outstanding painter and calligrapher. It’s a pity that most people don’t understand the depth of this industry.

It was four years after graduating from university that Wen Man decided to transfer to work in the mounting room. She originally studied art design, but later found that her personality was not suitable for this job, because the current advertising agency pursues fashion, and the industry atmosphere is rather impetuous. Wen Man’s temperament has always been slow and tidy, and she likes to concentrate on pursuing the ultimate in detail, which is more in line with the requirements of the decorator. However, after all, she is a newbie who started late in this industry. The salary for her first arrival is not high, so after so many years of graduation, her salary has been in the range of two to three thousand, which can be regarded as a low-level powder collar in big cities.

Jiang Yan knows a little bit about mounting, because there are elders in the family who are good at calligraphy. Watching Wen Man’s small hands repairing the remnants of the painting little by little on the copy table, her dark hair is tied in a gentle bun on the top of her small head, and the soft shadow is drawn into an oblique photo. It is already a painting of a classical lady like ink painting, which is exciting.

Mo Wen Yang walked up to him at some time and looked at Wen Man in the framed room with him and said with a smile: “So you like this type of woman.”

Jiang Yan didn’t argue with him, a pair of star-like handsome eyes stayed in Wen Man’s posture for a long time.

Out of curiosity, Chu Xia walked behind them and listened to the conversation between them. Suddenly he was suspicious: Is it really a shabby settlement?

Jiang Yan narrowed his eyes to Chu Xia when she walked over. After turning around, he first looked at her. Seeing that she was not as secular as the Wen family, he asked: “Are you a good friend of Wen Man?”

“Yes. Is there any problem?” Chu Xia always looked at him with a puzzled look. The two handsome guys standing in front of her are obviously more heroic than Mo Wen Yang.

“How long is a good friend?”

“It’s been ten years since college.” Chu Xia unconsciously slowed down his tone, because this handsome guy brought arrogance that ordinary people don’t have when asking questions, and seemed to like to speak under pressure.

Mo Wen Yang saw Chu Xia’s slight fear and smiled and interjected: “Don’t get me wrong. He is not that kind of person, just used to giving orders.”

“What do you mean?” Chu Xia seemed to have discovered the New World, and her eyes flashed brightly.

Jiang Yan was worried that Wen Man would find out that he called her to the corner with a handsome face, but he looked at her from the corner of his eye and said, “Could you please help me keep a secret with your friend and your friend’s family first.”

“Why did I do this for you?” Chu Xia had to consider what this person was trying to do with Man Man and asked tit-for-tat.

“What I can assure you with my life is that I will be nice to your friend Man Man.”

Chu Xia raised his head and read a clear light in the man’s eyes: He was serious.

CHAPTER 5 – INTENTIONAL ENCOUNTER

Late Wedding – Chapter 3 – The throbbing of a bowl of instant noodles brewing

Chapter 3 – The throbbing of a bowl of instant noodles brewing

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
― Virginia Woolf ―

“Sister Hao Xue, I will show you something interesting.” Wang Shao Han slipped into the study-room and pulled Wen Hao Xue out of the crowd.

Mo Wen Yang was still performing calligraphy in his study-room currently.

Disturbed by a little kid, Wen Hao Xue put up with his temper, and immediately stared after walking out of the study-room: “What’s the matter?”

Wang Shao Han took her to the balcony and pointed to the intersection: “Look, who is sitting with whom?”

Seeing the shabby prince sitting next to Wen Man, Wen Hao Xue’s eyes brightened, and she stroked Wang Shao Han’s head: “You stinky boy, with blazing eyes, worthy of praise. Go! Pull out your parents and have a look.”

Wang Shao Han pursed his mouth, and unwillingly, he pulled Wen Hao Xue out, just not wanting to inform him.

Wen Hao Xue didn’t know what this kid was thinking, she grabbed him a cheek, and said: “Go and drag the other sisters out.”

Wang Shao Han laughed, hehehe ran into the study.

So, after a minute, no female relatives were watching Mo Wen Yang in the study, and all of them slipped to the balcony.

“It’s time for Sister Man Man to get married. If she doesn’t marry again, what shall we do as younger sisters?” The sisters are all babbled. Although this is not so bad for a shabby settlement, some people want to get married. That’s pretty good.

The elders think so too: “Yeah! No matter how poor he is, he is still a man, and a woman must find a man to live.”

Isn’t this taking the opportunity to ridicule? Everyone gossiped about her daughter being not outstanding and that she was a pair of ragged shoes that no one wanted. While Xu Yu’e was choking, she grabbed her little daughter: “You run down quickly and call your sister up.”

“Mom. I won’t do such a shameful thing.” Wen Yuan held her breath just like her mother. She had long felt that it was useless to have an older sister who couldn’t let herself show off in front of her classmates. Now Wen Man can only choose to settle down because she can’t get married, and it’s even more embarrassing.

“Speaking of which, the sister-in-law is really true. Nowadays, when the girl is still a college student, the family has to arrange a blind date so as not to get married late.”

“Sister-in-law and eldest brother gave Man Man the name it really is, Man Man, doesn’t it sound the same as Wan Wan (Means “Late” in Chinese)?”

Not only was Xu Yu’e embarrassed, but Wen Man’s father Wen Shi Xuan also just came over and heard this, the middle-aged man’s old face was equally black.

So, if daughter can’t get married, the outsiders don’t blame themself, and the first target is the child’s parents. Some parents bear it on their own, and some parents usually endure enough to be spoken by others in society. They can’t bear it when they come home, and their anger is vented to their children.

Wen Man was a bit unlucky, and what she met was this kind of parents who like to go home to show off their anger.

The chirping on the balcony. Wen Man and Jiang Yan are far apart, and they didn’t hear them. They just sat full and sat in their original positions for a while.

“Your name is—” Jiang Yan asked.

“Wen Man.” Wen Man said in a very ordinary tone.

Jiang Yan looked at the big black glasses on the bridge of her small nose and almost dropped to her lips.

She is not the kind of beautiful woman.

The facial features are not bad, the nose is small, the lips are small, the eyes are a bit small, the face is thin, the fingers are long, and it is not a beautiful face, but her face will be pleasing and comfortable if everyone looks at it for a long time, because her expression is always with a faint smile, like a “carefree” cloud in the sky.

“What about your name?” Wen Man was a little uncomfortable with his eyes. Although she knew his name, she asked politely.

“Jiang Yan. [Yan] is a derivative of [Yan], and the word [Xing] with three dots of water in the middle of the word [Yan].” As if worried that she could not figure out his name, he took her a hand and made gestures on her palm.

It was the first time that Wen Man was squeezed by a man. Her eyelids blinked in surprise. She wanted to retract her hand, but she was afraid of being rude, so she could only endure it in silence.

“Do you know which word it is?” Jiang Yan lowered his head when he saw her, and asked with some worry, his face closer.

“I know.” Wen Man immediately retracted his hand when he relaxed a little. However, there was his residual temperature in his hand, the feeling he had just touched, but the strange things made her remember deeply. His hand is not as arrogant as he himself, with a thick cocoon, which can make people feel that this person is gentle but actually very powerful.

“Really know?”

Wen Man suddenly felt that his heat was spraying onto his face, and he raised his angle of view unconsciously, and found that he was close at hand, looking at her with a pair of smiling eyes. Pulling her brows slightly, she quickly lowered her face, and packed her things to leave.

Seeing her transient look, Jiang Yan was astonished, and then stood up and asked, “Did I do something wrong?”

“I don’t know how many girls you have made such a joke, but I am not used to it.” When Wen Man said this, she only looked at the flower garden by the roadside. She won’t look at his handsome face that don’t know has bewildered how many girl’s hearts.

Most of the good-looking men are the easier to be distinguished and admirable. This is almost a constant law.

Jiang Yan immediately realized that she had misunderstood, and this made him care very much, which he had never cared about. So, when she was about to start her step, he rushed to her to block her.

The Wen family on the balcony almost stared now they saw Jiang Yan stopping Wen Man.

“Oh my God. Does this shabby prince have a fancy to Sister Man Man?”

“Good deed, sister-in-law, congratulations.”

Xu Yu’e turned around and left the balcony after listening to the cynicism of the crowd.

“I… I’m not that kind of person.” Jiang Yan danced with both hands and patted his forehead again, “Really, I just think you are a good girl.”

Wen Man blinked his eyelashes blankly to see how he was at a loss: Could it be that he is not arrogant, but not good at speech, so he simply pretended to be deep and silent.

“Hey—” Jiang Yan hugged his head with his hands and showed innocent eyes like a pair of children from his fingers.

Wen Man was also amused when she saw him like this. The corners of her lips were slightly raised, which was cute.

At this time, Xu Yu’e came over and shouted from a distance: “Man Man, come here!”

Jiang Yan heard this cold, arrogant and angry woman’s voice, his eyebrows flicked unpleasantly, and when Wen Man was about to brush her side, she held her hand and asked: “Who is that person?”

Feeling that he shook his hand and used his strength a little bit, Wen Man was taken aback and said, “My mother.”

Is it her mother? It’s not like it at all! Jiang Yan looked at Xu Yu’e’s face with all emotions on her head from afar and frowned deeply. How can such an arrogant woman raise a daughter with rich content like Wen Man?

Wen Man broke away from his hand and walked towards her mother with her head down.

So, when Jiang Yan saw that she walked to Xu Yu’e, Xu Yu’e should have been scolded in a shameless manner. He felt agitated suddenly, and took out his cell phone from his trouser pocket to make a call to his companion: “Mo Wen Yang, how long do you want to play tricks in front of the group of monkeys?”

Mo Wen Yang finished his calligraphy performance early, and while the Wen family ran to the balcony to watch the excitement, he answered his phone and replied: “I can go anytime! If it weren’t for you, this ‘Jiang’s young master’ would like to act, you must know, you will always be my priority in my schedule, wherever you go, I will go—”

“Fuck you! Let’s go!”

Hearing Jiang Yan’s tone was very unhappy, Mo Wen Yang immediately bid farewell to the Wen family after closing the line.

“So fast.” Of course, Wen Shi Rong was reluctant to let go of ideal son-in-law, accompanied Mo Wen Yang to the door, and eagerly asked this young man by the shoulders, “How do you feel tonight?”

“Uncles and aunts are very hospitable.” Mo Wen Yang replied in the tone of a three-good student.

The answer is not what has been asked. Wen Shi Rong was about to continue knocking from the side, due to Mo Wen Yang received another call from Jiang Yan, so he stopped looking at the faces of any Wen family members and went out straight away.

CHAPTER 4 – WANT TO TAKE HER SERIOUSLY

A man does these things to prove that he really loves you

“The first step to be a good man is this: You must deeply feel the burden of the stones someone else carrying.”
― Mehmet Murat ildan

Most women often say that men can’t believe what they say, anyone can rely on it, that is, men can’t rely on things like that. It’s sad, it can only be said that you haven’t met a good man, or that women don’t understand men at all. If a man really loves you, he will do the following things:  

A man does these things to prove that he really loves you

Willing to pay for you

Money is not the most important thing in romantic life, but it is necessary. If a man really loves you, he will not calculate money for you. As long as you need reasonable and able to pay, he will certainly not fail to agree. Because in his heart, even you are his, why can’t he spend money for you?

Willing to listen to you

Women often have a lot of unhappy things. In the eyes of men, many are just small things, and they are not even worth caring about. A man who loves you will want to know what you are thinking, and will be willing to listen to your complaints. After hearing a lot of your words, he will comment and comfort you.

Willing to suffer for you

Most young men are hard-working, and it doesn’t matter if they suffer. People with limited financial resources will reduce their expenses and pay for them emotionally. A capable person will think about your future when doing everything. When a man eats himself, he will think about whether you have eaten or not. When he is entertaining, he will always think if he can take you there. When he is happy, he will always think of how you feel at this time. , In short, no matter what state you are in, men will think of you.

Willing to end for you

When two people eat together, often girls will end up saying that they can’t eat anymore. A man who loves you will be willing to help you with the rest. Most men of this age are raised in the presence of a baby at home. They have always been paid by their family members and enjoyed themselves. If he really loves someone, he will let go of himself and go for the one he loves.

At critical times, he will always protect you

“Rain with an umbrella while holding hands with your lover is damned sure nice.”
― Carew Papritz ―

When two people are shopping together, the man who loves you will walk on the side of the road, and you will be on the side of the road, so you will be safe. When climbing, the man who loves you will always be behind you and can protect you from climbing. When it rains, he will always tilt the umbrella a little more towards you, even if he gets wet, he doesn’t want you to get a little bit of rain. When there is a strong wind, he will hug you tightly and prevent you from being blown by the wind… No matter what the situation, he is willing to minimize the harm to you.

A good man needs a good woman to take good care of. Maybe the man next to you is not perfect, not the prince-like man you have always dreamed of, but as long as he treats you sincerely, you should To cherish, a woman’s greatest cherishment for a man is to love him well, there is only him in her heart, and she is willing to work with him to endure what she has to face in life.
  
Finally, I hope that all people in the world who truly love each other will stay together, cherish each other, and face it together.

“A man can be happy with any woman as long as he does not love her.”
