Late Wedding – Chapter 10 – Future in-laws

Chapter 10 – Future in-laws

“I suddenly remember being very little and being embraced by my father. I would try to put my arms around my father’s waist, hug him back. I could never reach the whole way around the equator of his body; he was that much larger than life. Then one day, I could do it. I held him, instead of him holding me, and all I wanted at that moment was to have it back the other way.”
― Jodi Picoult ―

“Are you upset or out of your mind? You don’t pick any good man, but you pick a boy who doesn’t have money. You will have to eat the pain yourself.”Xu Yu’e spat these words, feeling that she was scolding herself. When she thought about it, she just didn’t know why she picked Wen Shi Xuan, who had no money. After so many years of marriage, having children has been bear hardships and stand hard work, and has not enjoyed a day of happiness.

Man Man knows her mother’s temper very well. If she speaks to her, she is afraid that her mother will be angrier. For safety reasons, she can only wait for Xu Yu’e to finish her fire.

After she scolded her eldest daughter, she still didn’t see the slightest movement of her eldest daughter. Xu Yu’e should also be tired of scolding, so she had to sit back in her chair to rest. She held her forehead, and after thinking about it for a long time, she couldn’t understand why she had an indefatigable daughter. If it would be nice to have a son, would the Wen family be afraid that the second family would climb on their own head?

Yuanyuan saw that Man Man was silent for a long time and was boring. She chewed her rice and said, “Sister, it’s okay or not, you can say something back to mom anyway.”

Fortunately, the little daughter is still intimate. Xu Yu’e grabbed the chopsticks and added another piece of meat to her little daughter’s bowl: “You have to be full to eat. You must use your brain to study hard every day, and you can’t be like your sister. Your sister is too thin, I introduced a few people before, just to see your sister thin like this, they all think she is not blessed.”

Hearing this, Wen Shi Xuan couldn’t eat a mouthful of rice. The wife made him understand, understand that the wife is not targeting Man Man, it is targeting him at all.

Xu Yu’e and Yuan Yuan raised their heads together and looked at Wen Shi Xuan who stood up.

“Dad?” Yuan Yuan asked.

“You guys continue to eat. I’m going to cook a bowl of noodles.” Wen Shi Xuan left the dinner table and kept his head down to avoid seeing his wife’s eyes.  

As he expected, as soon as Wen Shi Xuan walked away, Xu Yu’e grumbled at the dinner table again: “Ignore your dad. Does he think the family is very rich now? He still wants to smack things at every meal. If your dad had the ability, he wouldn’t have eaten this meal at home. He would have taken his wife and children to the restaurant to eat abalone shark fins.”

It was Man Man’s turn and couldn’t stand it anymore. While her mother and sister were eating happily, she quietly walked away and got into the kitchen.

Wen Shi Xuan, who was sitting on the kitchen threshold, lit a cigarette and smoked it. His two eyes looked like wood, and he couldn’t move.

“Dad. Let me cook noodles for you. Do you want to add eggs? Or I remember there is a tomato in the refrigerator.” Man Man walked in, opened the refrigerator door, took out the tomato, and washed it in the vegetable bowl then use a knife to cut into eight pieces.

When the fire of the gas stove ignited, Wen Shi Xuan regained his senses and said, “You are not full too, then take two eggs and cook two bowls of noodles by the way.”

“No. If Mom finds a few eggs missing, she will say it.”

“What can she say? She wants to ask; you just say that I ate two eggs and two bowls of noodles.” Wen Shi Xuan only dared to speak so hard when his wife couldn’t see or hear.

Man Man did not make a sound, put the noodles into the pot and boiled, took a long chopsticks and stirred the noodles neatly in it, and the noodles formed the appearance of blooming flowers. Seeing people’s appetites, it was pleasing to the eye.

The eldest daughter is not bad at all. Just talking about her gentle and quiet temperament, Wen Shi Xuan feels that as long as it is a man, he can be hooked on her. Therefore, he said the following not on his wife’s side, but felt that it was not worth it for his daughter: “Man Man, listen to Dad. You are very good. Dad thinks that you are much better than Yuan Yuan and Hao Xue. It doesn’t matter if you can’t find someone for the time being dad will help you find better people everywhere again. Dad doesn’t believe that you will marry badly. Therefore, we don’t need to wrong ourselves. If you simply marry, you will definitely make yourself suffer in the future.”

“Dad–“ Man Man is glad that the steam on the pot has covered her own little face with fog, which can hide her two red eyes at the moment.  

“Don’t blame your mother either.” Wen Shi Xuan said it back, as the head of the family, he naturally hopes that everything will be happy at home. “Your mother is like me, I am afraid that you are like her, married to someone like me who has no ability, and you will eventually suffer on your own.”

“I know, I understand.” Man Man Ying said, no matter what the parents are, they are their own parents. The grace of having children and the grace of raising children is what she wants to return. Therefore, no matter how angry and angry her mother is, she will not talk back. she understands that mother is also forced by life.

Two bowls of noodles were picked up, and the father and daughter ate one bowl at each end next to each other. The stuffy air in their hearts finally left the table and dispersed.

At night, she grabbed a broom to clean the broken bowls on the ground, and Jiang Yan’s oath suddenly appeared in front of Man Man’s eyes.

There will be no problem.

He was categorical, full of confidence, as if he had won the ticket.


She only felt he is like a child.

Father Jiang and Mother Jiang got off the plane and didn’t tell their son they were here. They secretly stayed in the hotel first and recruited Mo Wen Yang’s parents to come over and ask questions.  

The youngest son was on vacation for a few days, and immediately said that he fell in love with a girl at first sight and would not marry anyone except her. After hearing this in the hearts of parents, on the one hand they are happy that their son is planning to get married, on the other hand they are naturally worried about what kind of woman she is. She can make a man fall in love at first sight, is she a vixen??

Father Jiang and Mother Jiang, especially Mother Jiang, are in such a state of mind at this moment.

Fortunately, Mo’s father and mother also heard their son Mo Wen Yang say about this matter. As one of the initiators of the blind date party, Mo’s father answered the Jiangs’ questions like this: “Wen Shi Rong is a colleague of mine in the municipal government, I’m not very familiar with it. In fact, Wen Shi Rong invited my son over that day, just to see the new car at his home. Unexpectedly, Wen Shi Rong called so many girls over. Jiang Yan just went to play with Wen Yang and met that girl like this.”

“That girl is your colleague’s daughter?” When Mother Jiang heard that it was the woman’s parents who might be working in the city government, they were officials’ children, Jiang’s mother felt at ease.

But how dare Mo dad lie about this and clarify: “No. It is the eldest daughter of my colleague’s big brother, but she is about the same age as Jiang Yan, one year younger than Jiang Yan.”

That being the case, Jiang’s mother asked: “What does your colleague’s eldest brother do?”

“I don’t know this, so I have to ask my colleague.” Dad Mo said.

Mother Jiang thought, since the brothers are all work in the city government, the elder brother’s family background shouldn’t be bad. Anxious, he immediately begged Mo Dad to bring himself to the city government to ask Wen Shi Rong.

When she walked to the office building of the city government, Dad Mo took her for a walk, and walked to the door of the office where the sign was posted. Mother Jiang looked up and wrote Security Section, and immediately pulled Mo Dad: “What is your colleague position again?”

“He is the head of the team. Now that he is old, he has a clerical job and let him sit in the office.” Dad Mo said.

As soon as Mother Jiang heard it, she thought how big an official the woman’s uncle was, and he turned out to be a driver.

Seeing that Mother Jiang’s face was not good, Father Mo dared not step into Wen Shi Rong’s office at will, and hesitated: “This–”

“Go back.” Mother Jiang said a word lightly, but the steps did not hesitate to go back.


Late Wedding – Chapter 9 – Let’s get married

Chapter 9 – Let’s get married

“I promise to stand by you, to hold you up when you’re about to fall, and to always keep you safe. I never believed there was a girl out there for me. Until I met you. You changed everything. And I never want to live without you. I love you more than I ever thought possible.”
― J. Sterling ―

It’s not that he is poor, but he can be heard joking all the time. She doesn’t have this time to play affection with a man, and she can’t afford it either.

“Man Man.” Seeing her stand up, he stretched out his hand to pull her small wrist, clasping her wrist like some pliers.

Turning her head, the big spectacle lens of Gu looked at him: “Let me go.”

“No.” Definitely.

Is it possible that Miss Man Man wants to make a scene?

Man Man slowly said, “Why don’t you let me go?”

“You must have misunderstood me again.” Once again categorically.

Chu Xia and Du Yu looked anxious when they were there. You said that these two people haven’t started yet, how come they become awkward?

“Man Man.” Chu Xia came to persuade, “Don’t worry, listen to him to finish.”

“I want to listen to what he said.” Man Man is such a person, and things are very clear. “He is full of lies. Can she live with a man who is good at lying?”

Chu Xia was defeated, and it was a terrible defeat.

Man Man either doesn’t speak, or makes people feel complacent.

Du Yu blinked at Jiang Yan.

However, Jiang Yan’s actions still surprised him.

Standing in front of her, with a head raised, a tall and loose figure covering her small face. The corners of her arrogant mouth flattened, her eyebrows were drawn into her temples, her eyes like a star fell, almost as low as her white forehead. The strong breath fell on her ears, as if holding her earlobes, a short and powerful sentence:

“Let’s get married.”

The people and things around them are as hazy as smoke, and they are floating away. Man Man couldn’t see Du Yu and early summer. She stared at her big eyes. There were only his long eyebrows in her pupils. His starry eyes, and the dead heart in her chest was ignited, jumping again and again.

Between the rough palms, she held down along her soft little finger, then clasped one of her fingers, and made an action like an oath: “Wait for me. I am a soldier, and I must make a report if I wanna get married, but don’t worry, I should be able to approve it in about two months. I know you don’t believe me now, but I am sincere to you and really want to be with you.”

A man’s lingering love word.

Even if Man Man did not blush in the public, Chu Xia and Du Yu blushed.

The heart in his heart seemed to be supported by the palm of his stretched-out palm, too fast, so fast that he wanted to escape, because it was not real.

If he is not shabby, how can she get into his eyes?

Man Man is always practical. When the people around him blushed and their hearts were beating, his calm voice floated out with a desolation: “I need to think about it first.”

“What do you need to consider?” Chu Xia was in front of Jiang Yan, rushing to help Jiang Yan ask the question first. That group is anxious, who knows that the emperor is not in a hurry to die the eunuch.

No matter how good he is, can this marriage be done casually? Unlike foreign countries, Chinese marriage is a union of two families. You love me, not only for both men and women, but there must also be a family of both men and women.

“When she reports to his parents, let’s talk about it after agreeing.” Man Man wanted to minimize the damage between the two.

Speaking of the family hurdle, the two fires that Chu Xia and Du Yu burned for Jiang Yan’s marriage proposal were also extinguished.

“No problem.” Jiang Yan vowed, “I will call my parents to come over today.”

With a small face lifted, the corners of his arrogant mouth were full of confidence and flying, which made her confused again.

“Come here, it’s time for lunch.” Chu Xia hurriedly greeted everyone to come over to eat, how to say that Man Man was proposed to marry him is a gratifying thing.

The picnic basket was opened, and the neatly cut fruits and vegetables were cleaned piece by piece. The rice dumplings placed in the crisper were wrapped in seaweed and filled with meat, and the fragrance was overflowing. Jiang Yan only needs to see this delicious food: he must abduct this daughter-in-law home if he says anything.

He went back and immediately called his parents and said that he had found a wife who was satisfactory to them. Good character and better cooking skills.

So, when it comes to the Jiang family, Jiang Yan is the youngest, but he has passed the thirty marks. Because he was the youngest son, he was pampered by Jiang’s mother since he was a child and indulged in everything. Her son said he wanted to be a soldier when he was admitted to college, and he said he wanted to start a career and study abroad. Mother Jiang was anxious. She didn’t take advantage of her son’s holiday. She wanted to take her son to see the daughters of some old comrades-in-arms to urge the marriage. As a result, as soon as the holiday was off, his son followed Mo Wen Yang to the south for vacation. Mother Jiang thought this was over, how long the marriage would have to be. She didn’t expect to receive such an urgent call from her son. She responded with a hello from her son that night and discussed with her husband. The next day, the two hurriedly boarded the plane and rushed to see the future daughter-in-law.

Man Man had no idea that his in-laws would come so soon in the future. She saw Jiang Yan’s childishness in her eyes, and she felt that he could only believe three points. Moreover, no matter what his parents are like, she thinks her mother’s level is already quite troublesome.

Xu Yu’e hated Jiang Yan’s affairs on the first day, and the family is well known.

After returning home from the picnic that day, Wen’s family of four had dinner in the evening, which of course was prepared by Man Man.

Wen Yuan only scanned the four dishes and one soup on the table, frowning and asked: “Sister, when did you buy this dish? You bought it yesterday, right? It’s not fresh anymore.”

“I went to the market at five or six o’clock in the morning to buy it.” Man Man used the chopsticks in her hand to hold the rice grains in the bowl, still speaking slowly, not stunned by any provocations.

Wen Yuan felt annoyed every time she heard her sister’s soft but still unable to grasp a handle. “Bang” put her chopsticks and said, “Sister, Sister Hao Xue said she met you on the mountain today. You. How can I go shopping in the mountains at five or six o’clock?”

“I came back from buying vegetables at five or six o’clock, and after borrowing a car from someone, we set off at about eight or nine o’clock.” Manman said.

“Did you go to play?” Xu Yu’e knows what the little girl is angry about. Doesn’t this angry sister go out to play by herself without bringing her own sister? In other words, she has hide it from her parents, which is strange.

“Mom, I’m an adult. Do I need to talk about where I want to go?” Man Man would be strange if he couldn’t hear his mother helping his sister to be angry, and just talked about reason.

“But Yuanyuan is now in a stressful period. As an elder sister, you have to be considerate of your sister.” Xu Yu’e now has only one little daughter, Yuanyuan, who will become a phoenix in the future, and she doesn’t put any hope on Manman.

“Okay. Let’s continue eating.” Wen Shi Xuan, who has always been hardworking in front of his wife and daughter, can’t help but feel that the eldest daughter has done nothing wrong.

Wen Yuan was unhappy when she heard her father say to help her sister: “Dad, don’t you know that the man who lost the face of you and mom last time, sister went to play with that man today.”

“What?” Wen’s father and Wen’s mother threw the chopsticks together.

“Sister Hao Xue saw it with her own eyes, and the man personally said she wanted Sister Man Man to raise him. Sister Hao Xue lost her face in front of a group of friends and died of embarrassment on the spot. I think if I were there, I would want to hit the tree. Come on, why do I have such a spineless sister?” Wen Yuan said this, confident and relieved. The dishes she picked up were stuffed in her mouth, but she completely forgot that these dishes are all. Her sister cooked it according to her favourite taste.

Man Man eat the rice in small bites.

“You unfilial daughter, can you still eat?!” Xu Yu’e slapped her angrily, and the bowl in Man Man’s hand fell to the ground and fell into eight pieces.
