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.”

“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.
