Chapter 13 – Wedding Ring
When Jiang’s father and Jiang’s mother returned to the hotel, they did not see Man Man in person. But, needless to say, just like that kind of mother and aunt. . . . . . . .
“The first offer of 80,000 yuan, 100 tables of banquets.” Mother Jiang felt funnier as she said. “It’s really golden daughter. If she wants to be a rich young lady, our family really can’t afford it.”
“Don’t say it!” Father Jiang was annoyed, and his son and himself were blinded.
Mother Jiang will accept it as soon as she sees it. Regarding how to take her son’s heart back from Man Man, she must negotiate with her husband: “I think you can call the army and ask the leader of the army to give our son the early leave.”
You can only make this move.
Father Jiang sighed. That night, the Jiang family returned to Beijing by plane.
The next day, Jiang Yan received a call from the army and was asked to return to the team early.
Be a soldier, there is no right to disobey this.
Jiang Yan packed up his clothes at the military guest house that day and prepared to take the express train back that afternoon. Time is running out, but he really wants to see Man Man, and he has something to say to her.
The most regrettable thing is that I didn’t let my parents meet her and taste the dishes she cooked in person. He believed that if his parents saw her with their own eyes and ate the food she cooked, they would be satisfied.
He Jiang Yan doesn’t need a beautiful and capable wife, only a gentle-tempered wife who can manage the house.
What you need most as a military wife is to be able to endure loneliness.
Man Man is the most suitable.
Before going to Man Man’s company, he called Chu Xia first.
He ran out of the company in a hurry, and when Chu Xia’ saw him, he asked, “you said on the phone that you are leaving? Didn’t you say you want to propose a marriage?”
“My parents are not here.” Jiang Yan also felt sorry, “Time is too tight, I can only wait for the next time.”
“When is the next time?” Chu Xia was faintly disturbed, not knowing how to fly again like this, right?
The cracked white teeth smiled cheerfully and brightly: “Don’t think about it. ——where is Man Man?”
Chu Xia put the ugly words on the front said: “I really have to say it. Man Man was too old to wait for someone who didn’t show up. As long as you are serious, I’ll call her out again.”
“Hey. I asked for marriage. Grandma Chu Xia.” Jiang Yan begged for Chu Xia with his grandparent. For fear that Chu Xia would not agree, he took out a black brocade box from his pocket, “Look, my wedding ring It’s all ready.”
Seeing this, Chu Xia stopped being suspicious, and went in and called Man Man, without telling Man Man that he was leaving, only that he was looking for something urgent.
Upon hearing the urgent matter, Man Man’s heart hung up and walked out wearing with a working apron.
The spring was bright, he stood under a peach blossom branch, with a long and elevated body, a natural clothes hanger, and his long light gray windbreaker only reached his knees. Looking at it this way, I think he is taller. Today, he put one hand in his trouser pocket, his thumb was exposed in the pocket, and the other hand was slightly close to the windbreaker. He is still handsome, and has more of a mature man’s charm than before.
“Man Man.” He smiled handsomely when he saw her coming.
Beauty is in the eyes of the lover.
In his eyes, she had a white and tender face and small glasses with big eyes. Not only was she not ugly, but she was also calm and gentle on the corners of her rose-red lips, and her slender posture inherently had an ancient beauty.
The slender legs stepped away, and two strides stood in front of her. The big hands couldn’t wait to grab one of her small hands and put the ring with the palm of the other hand on her ring finger.
Man Man is embarrassing, what is this? Did not say anything.
Immediately, and even more embarrassing, the size is obviously wrong. The silver ring hung up on her ring finger and immediately slid down again. The size is a full circle. It can be seen how small and tender her finger bones are.
The rough fingertips kneaded her watery fingers, and her heart was rippling for a moment, and she couldn’t bear to let go of anything, and her Adam’s apple was tumbling for two consecutive weeks.
“Jiang-Yan -” was the first time she called him by his name. Man Man blushed like a bright sun. “This is the company. Someone sees it.”
“What can they do if they see it? Last time I said I wanted to marry you in front of so many people.” The slightly tilted corner of his mouth has a hint of childish innocence and playfulness. He is still him and has not changed.
Ashamed, she lowered her head straight: “This ring is not suitable.”
“who said it’s inappropriate. I’ll go over and change it right away.” Jiang Yan tugged her fingers and the ring in his palm. He wouldn’t let go of anything she said.
“Hey. I’m at work.” Seeing him about to pull himself away, Man Man stopped and shouted.
By now, he had to tell the truth, his long eyebrows frowned and frowned, and he was helpless: “The troops called me, and I have to leave for Beijing in the afternoon.”
The heart was shaken, and the ripples that appeared circle after circle. It turned out to be so, so he rushed to buy her a ring.
Seeing her suddenly silent, he became anxious and frightened: “Don’t worry. After I go back, I will come back to pick you up as soon as I find a chance to ask for leave. This time I will bring my parents to see you. Anyway, I have a marriage proposal and give you the ring and the ring was worn by you, and they couldn’t do anything to us.”
To be honest, she had never doubted his sincerity, only looking at his bright and moving eyes, everything was clearly written in his eyes. The eyes are the window of the soul. She can trust every word of him.
It’s time to summon up your courage.
The little hand broke his fingers and grabbed the ring back into his palm. Warm little lips smiled into a bright arc: “Okay. I’ll wait for you.”
Excited, it seemed to stretch from his heart to his limbs in circles, his fingertips trembled, and his lips licked and licked: “Man Man, I want to hug you.”
Hug? Subconsciously looking left and right, I didn’t see anyone, and my little head nodded.
He had been waiting for too long at this moment. She just nodded, and his two big arms went up, and one of his long arms was only half-length, which could encircle her small body into his own arms.
He was too strong, she was caught off guard, her head hit his chest in a straight line, her eyes flashed for a while, and when she remembered that she was still wearing a dirty apron, she whispered: “Dirty–“
“What’s dirty! You are full of incense.“ To prove this, he drew on her hair and sucked it.
As a result, her face was stuck to his chest, under the silk shirt, and his strong and warm muscles made her skin thinner and tender. It was the most embarrassing thing to touch her two little hands where she didn’t know where to touch.
The wind blew warmly, she accompanied herself like a heartbeat that was about to sprout, Man Man thought, she will remember today for the rest of her life.
Jiang Yan regretted it when he left. He knew he didn’t ask for a hug, he should have asked for a kiss. Looking back, seeing her standing at the door, his heart ached and itchy, he wanted to go back, but the phone rang.
Watching him walk away, disappearing into the crowd little by little. Man Man’s eyes didn’t move, really wanting to freeze time at this moment.
“Man Man.” Chu Xia appeared on time, squeezing her hand.
“It’s okay. I believe him.” Man Man smiled, turned around, and went back to work neatly. As for the oversized silver ring, she treasured it in a cloth bag she sewed and carried it with her every day.
That night, he texted her on the train: I’m going back, remember to wait for me!
The rumbling train took away her lover…
