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.

CHAPTER 10 – FUTURE IN-LAWS

Late Wedding – Chapter 8 – I only want her

Chapter 8 – I only want her

“Sometimes, you are the only one seeing what you want to see.”
― Emmanuel Apetsi

At that time, Man Man had no time to realize the meaning of his words. When she came back to her senses, she had already been dragged by him for a while.

The little face was red from the sun, and the lower shadow overlapped with his tall figure, and the light was so mottled that she dazzled her eyes.

The group reached halfway up the mountain. Chu Xia was the first to find a stone bench and greet others to sit on it. Seeing Man Man being dragged by Jiang Yan’s elbow to slowly walk up the stairs, Chu Xia smiled crookedly, and said, “You guys are pulling carts.”

Du Yu who was drinking water spouted out.

Man Man raised her eyelids, never knowing that Chu Xia was so eloquent, staring dryly.

Chu Xia afraid that she would really be angry on her, she sat down first, handed her a bottle of mineral water, and quietly approached her ear and said: “We hardly to come out and play together, just relax and enjoy the happy moment will do.”

She squeezed the lid of the mineral water bottle with her fingers, but she couldn’t unscrew it yet, and Man Man was sweating all over her body. She didn’t know if it was because of what Chu Xia had just said or was thinking about what he had just said.

Jiang Yan and Du Yu sat shoulder to shoulder under the tree to enjoy the shade.

“Has Man Man never had a boyfriend before?” Jiang Yan asked eloquently. Man Man looked like he had never been in contact with a man.

It stands to reason that Man Man is twenty-nine this year, it is impossible that he has never talked about a relationship.

When Du Yu talked about this, he felt sad for Man Man: “Don’t mention it. You should know the environment of her home? Just her mother who likes to make trouble without reason, how many good men have to be discouraged.”

Jiang Yan, who unscrewed the lid, suddenly had no intention of drinking water.

“If it’s her mother, let’s forget it, mainly her group of younger sisters.” Du Yu said this, real anger, “Everyone thinks they are royal descent. If Man Man makes a good love partner, they feel wronged. If Man Man makes a bad love partner, they feel that Man Man shames them. “

If it is a man with a normal mind and a good life, he will not want to approach Man Man when he hears Du Yu say this.

Du Yu dared to say that he was also betting on Jiang Yan’s sincere interest in Man Man: “Man Man is a mediocre person, her job is not good, and her family background is not very good too.” Du Yu put his hand on Jiang Yan’s shoulders: “By the way, buddy, what do you like about Man Man, I will give you a reference.”

“I like Man Man, but I like her It’s really unreasonable.” Jiang Yan said that he was embarrassed, and the corner of his eyes couldn’t help looking at Man Man.

Man Man has been struggling with the mineral water lid, her face tight.

The spontaneously clear temperament from the inside cannot be concealed, like a ray of clear light that stunned his eyes for a moment.

Jiang Yan thought: For such a good and innocent girl, there must be a good man to cherish and take care of.

The rustling, rustling, and wind rustled, feeling that his two beams of sight passed through the gap between the branches and fell on his face like a condensing light, and Man Man gently turned her face to another side.

How long hasn’t she been in contact with boys?

As far as I know, when the boys close to her know who is in her family, she can’t even compare to Yuanyuan who is not short-sighted in appearance. Her family is the worst in her family.

Because it didn’t happen at the beginning, she didn’t even have a boy ever told her to like her.

Man Man’s heart gradually became colder with this matter, and occasionally thought that it would be good to live a lifetime by oneself. However, why has a man suddenly appeared and said he likes her?

Man Man’s heart was beating again and again.

Looking at the sky, there is no cloud, the air in the mountains is fresh, and the breeze is breezy. There are more and more tourists going up the mountain, most of the tourists are getting younger and younger, and there are many groups of age tourist go to the mountain.

A group of about ten young people climbed up.

The bottle cap in Man Man’s hand could not be unscrewed, but when she raised her head, she ran into the face with Wen Hao Xue in the crowd.

It’s too late to hide.

“Sister Man Man?” Wen Hao Xue’s round face has always had a rich expression, and she was surprised to see the smile of her loved ones. It was only three seconds in the middle, and the camera couldn’t take a picture of her transition expression. “Sister Man Man, are you here alone? It’s boring to play alone. If you said it earlier, we could come together.”

Who wants to come with her?  

Chu Xia, who sat next to her and hugged her friend, immediately said: “Man Man didn’t come alone.”

Not alone?

Seeing Du Yu and Jiang Yan sitting under the big tree, Wen Hao Xue’s eyes smiled into two brackets.

Not to mention that Jiang Yan broke down, according to Wen Hao Xue’s understanding, Du Yu and Chu Xia also belong to white-collar workers such as the moonlight clan and have no money. So, Man Man, you should be careful when making friends. You made two friends who didn’t have money to help you match up. Didn’t you get caught? Reading this, Wen Hao Xue really “sympathized” with Man Man.

Standing there, motionless, and eager to stop, Wen Hao Xue really attracted the attention of his companions.

“Hao Xue, is it your sister?”

“Yes. My cousin sister.”

“Are you alone? If you are alone, let’s play with us. It’s fun if there are many people.”

“I think too, but my sister is not willing.” Wen Hao Xue said with infinite regret.

“How could it be unwilling?”

One or two eyes looked at Man Man, and then she saw Chu Xia, Du Yu, and Jiang Yan not without surprise. Now many girls’ eyes brightened when saw Jiang Yan Handsome face.

The handsome guy with red lips and white teeth is the most precious of non-sissy, and his slightly provocative long eyebrows are full of masculine temperament.

Seeing that everyone’s reaction was the same as she thought, Wen Hao Xue released a bomb: “Don’t look at him like this, he actually has other abilities.”

Carefully, everyone can imagine it.

Toy boy?

Those sugar baby who specializes in eating soft rice.

The girls giggled, no longer restrained, picked up their fingers and pointed at the handsome guy.

Du Yu was annoyed and wanted to stand up, but Jiang Yan held his shoulders.

“Don’t be angry, Brother Yu. I’m not angry.” Jiang Yan tilted his mouth and raised his eyebrows, showing his hostile arrogance, making a group of little girls’ blush.

Didn’t you say that you have broken down?

Proud like this?

Wen Hao Xue couldn’t resist it anymore: This man, who expression or gaze, would look like a shameless settlement? It’s not that she and my family have made a mistake.

Seeing that even the little cousin was suspicious, Man Man had even greater doubts about it in her heart.

A group of little girls whispered in exclamation.

Jiang Yan, who stepped on his long legs, suddenly sat next to Man Man, swept Man Man in his arms like a bird, Man Man’s small face was too late to turn red, and suddenly he heard a gentle sentence from the corner of his mouth:

“You are right, I only want her to support me.”

Boom.

Man Man’s brain was blown to a blank.

Wen Hao Xue and a group of girls retreated at full speed.

“I said, Hao Xue, your sister is so pitiful, she actually put on a shameless sugar baby who stated that wanted to eat soft rice.”

Little finger hooked into the ear hole, Jiang Yan only cared about Du Yu and Chu Xia who were leaning forward and backward with a smile, and he could leak his details at any time.

The petite body in his arms moved, and Jiang Yan realized that he had gone wrong and hurriedly released his hand.

But Man Man’s face is not red and her heart is not beating, and her voice is calm and natural: “Mr. Jiang, we really are not suitable.”

Huh—Jiang Yan took a breath.

“Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future. Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence. Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”

CHAPTER 9 – LET’S GET MARRIED

Late Wedding – Chapter 7 – Love letter

Chapter 7 – Love letter

“The more I write about us, the more our love feels like art.”
― Laura Chouette ―

At night, turning on the flashlight in the bed, Wen Man lay on the bed and quietly pulled out the letter paper from the cowhide envelope.

On the dark stripes of the red bars, the free and easy pen and ink marks are like his character:

“Hi Man Man, dear Man Man,

What to do?

Because of your bowl of instant noodles, I think about it day and night, and think about your bowl of instant noodles every day.

I think I, Jiang Yan myself, have never missed something like this for thirty years. I was afraid that I was poisoned or ill. I ran to the hospital. The doctor diagnosed me: You are miserable. You are poisoned. If there is no antidote for this poison, it will invade the internal organs.

I thought about how this doctor’s words resembled the poisonous symptoms of martial arts masters in the Eight Divisions of Heavenly Dragon, which was clearly not credible.

However, when thinking of you, my heart hurts.

Even if I was in pain, I never thought that I would die. This may be the place I am most proud of, Jiang Yan himself. However, I will be afraid, you hate me——

I Jiang Yan has not tasted the taste of being hated by people, but if the taste of being hated by people I like, I Jiang Yan has tasted it for the first time, it is you, Man Man.  

Man Man, I like you.

Will you blush over this sentence?

I fantasize about this question every day, fascinated, and I am afraid that if I ask you this question in person, will you say to me annoyingly:

Mr. Jiang, how I hate your handsome face.”

Seeing this sentence, Wen Man’s mouth grinned.

Wen Yuan, who was sleeping on the lower bunk, turned over.

Wen Man hurriedly covered her mouth with her hands, and involuntarily swept down the letter paper, reading word by word:

“Actually you don’t know me.

Man Man.

There is a scar on the back of my neck, which is very ugly.

Man Man

Don’t hate me so much, okay?

I like you so much.

I Jiang Yan swore to heaven

I confess to women

This is the first time in life

Glorious

Sacred

Great.

So, it’s not difficult to get to know me, Man Man, let’s meet again … N times.

When the time comes, maybe you will tell me

Mr. Jiang, of course your handsome face can make me angry, but I don’t hate you.”

Looking at the complete letter, the smile in the corner of her mouth smiled into her heart, warmly.

If he wanted her to laugh and want her to be happy, he did it.

After folding the letter and putting it back in the cowhide envelope, Wen Yuan below suddenly said: “Sister, are you asleep?”

As soon as the flashlight was pressed, it was turned off immediately.

However, Wen Yuan has found out that she is not sleeping, and the exit is a series of unforgiving complaints: “You go to work at nine o’clock every day, and I have to go to class at 7: 30, do you know? !”

Wen Man wrinkled those two long and supple eyebrows slightly, looked at the dark ceiling and said: “I’m sorry, Yuanyuan, I just couldn’t sleep.”

With a bang, Wen Yuan turned over violently on the lower bunk. The shock caused the entire duck bunk to shake up and down, accompanied by an angry roar: “It’s better if you can’t get into a good university. Do you think I can’t get into a good university?” !”

The lower lip bites the mark tightly, Wen Man suppressed the ups and downs of her chest: “Yuanyuan, if you are really capable, you will be admitted to the Central Academy of Fine Arts and then you will say this to your sister!”

After waiting for a long time, Wen Yuan below did not dare to make a sound anymore.

The smile on the corner of Wen Man’s mouth fell off little by little and sank into the darkness. Thinking of his letter, she suddenly thought in her heart:

“If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for a moment.”
― Georgia O’Keefe ―

Mr. Jiang, if you know our home is like this, would you still like me?

After Jiang Yan sent out the love letter he wrote for the first time in his life, his heart was as happy as a flying bird. He had insomnia that night, so he called Du Yu and asked if he could ask Man Man out again.

“We only met today, and we will meet again tomorrow?” Chu Xia was surprised.

“I think he is so enthusiastic, but he is a bit sincere.” Du Yu is very confident in Jiang Yan.

Chu Xia recalled and said, “You are not wrong in what you said. So far, I have never seen such a person chasing Man Man like this.”

“I think…” Du Yu turned to his side and discussed with his wife face to face, “It’s better to find a time for four of us to go out in the countryside. On the one hand, the two of us have not been romantic for a long time, and the other in terms of giving them a chance for intimacy.”

“Okay.” Chu Xia really thinks this suggestion is very good, so Man Man should be allowed to walk around and breathe fresh air, and stay in that Wen’s house, and sooner or later will be pissed off.

Wen Man heard that Chu Xia asked him to come out on the weekend again, and became a little wary: “Who else is there besides you and me?”

“You are responsible for preparing the picnic in the suburbs, and I will arrange the rest.” Chu Xia shamelessly.

Wen Man really didn’t know how to say it, maybe that letter had taken root in her heart. When she saw Jiang Yan appear as expected, she did not reject it in her heart.

Jiang Yan borrowed Mo Wen Yang’s vehicle. Du Yu was going to drive, and Chu Xia had to sit in the front seat with her husband, and the remaining two had to sit in the back seat.

The luggage was picked up on the car, and it was converged and set off at the door of the company.

Wen Man, who was sitting in the back seat against the car window, almost put her face on the cold window.

The first time she was so close to a man, her heart was dry and her face was dry.

Seeing her cramped and cautious, Jiang Yan kept smiling in his heart, surreptitiously stretched out his hand, and touched the end of her white fingers with his fingertips.

Wen Man was startled, and was about to retract her fingers, but was clamped by his fingers.

Immediately afterwards, his fingers were inserted between her five fingers along the gap between them, twisted like vines, and the warm heat flowed through the fingertips into the mouth of her heart.

The tea-coloured glass in the car window reflected the smile on the corner of his mouth, and Wen Man saw that he felt as if he had knocked over the jar in his heart.

“What are you thinking about?” Jiang Yan found the suspiciousness on her face and leaned involuntarily.

Wen Man’s small heart thumped several times again, and the smell on his body spread a little bit into her nose. It was a fresh and clean soap fragrance, like a freshly cut lemon. Her little face, smoked by this lemon, was flushed like a tide of water.  

In Jiang Yan’s eyes, the beautiful beauty in front of him was like a delicious red apple, causing his throat to itch and his lower abdomen to heat up. He licked his lips thirsty, but when he saw the beauty so shy, he dared not deviate.

These ten wrapped fingers were wrapped all the way to the end.  

The breath of spring is strong, the weather is not cold or hot, and the outing is just right.  

Along the road, I saw a lot of young people who travelled together, and there were many couples.

When going up the mountain, Du Yu and early summer shook hands.

Man Man followed behind, very nervous in her heart.

Such a scene reminded her of college.

Too young and too wanton, she felt dreamy and unreal, thinking she was still at home this morning and how to save money if really want go to Beijing.

“Man Man?”

A voice wrapped around her ears and lowered her ears, a thick warm breath teasing people.

Man Man jumped aside like a frightened bird.

Jiang Yan has never seen such a restrained girl. The smile in his heart couldn’t help but the corner of his mouth, pointing to the flower beside the road: “Do you like it?”

“Like—” Seeing him doing something to pick, he hurriedly “Hey”, stop it, “It’s not good to pick flowers.”

The shy show hand is quite courageous now, grabbing his half-sleeved arm.

When I realized it, Xiao Shou suddenly retracted it again, and the electric shock was not so fast.

Can’t help it, I can’t help it anymore.

He grabbed her little elbow, and he raised Ying Ting eyebrows to her, his eyes lit up like stars: “Miss Man Man, you have to believe that this beautiful man of me can’t be a hooligan.”

CHAPTER 8 – I ONLY WANT HER

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

Late Wedding – Chapter 2 – Only the handsome shabby prince

“You are not rich until you have a rich heart.”
― Roy T. Bennett

Chapter 2 – Only the handsome shabby prince

“The one who walks in the front, gentle and pleasant, is the son of my dad colleague named Mo Wen Yang. The one behind is the friend he brought with him, named Jiang Yan.” Wen Hao Xue gave a live commentary to the sisters.

Since Jiang Yan was more handsome than Mo Wen Yang, everyone rushed forward.

After an hour, all the people gnashed their teeth,muttered their mouths, and retreated with a gray head and a lost face.

“What is it? Isn’t it just a shabby guy!”

“This suit he came to us to wear today was lent to him by his friend.”

“There is no money, only handsome farts.”

“Don’t talk about the house and car, according to his unstable job and salary, he is not a civil servant, and it is difficult to support his family.”

Wen Man thought later that if Jiang Yan hadn’t settled down, she probably wouldn’t even look at him. The main reason is that he can make her a group of sisters and aunts get angry then its enough to make her look different.

Leaving the page in his hand, stretching her neck from the shadow, Wen Man carefully landed on the shabby prince with her eyes through the big glasses.

The height should be more than 1.8 meters, silver-striped shirt, blue and black trousers, polished leather shoes, and the top button of the shirt has been pulled out, revealing a small graceful collarbone.

The facial features are clear, the nose is sharp, the brows have a touch of arrogance, and the corners of the lips have a touch of coldness.

Accidentally, the two of them touched their eyes.

Wen Man’s head drooped immediately, her eyes facing the book spread out on her lap. As the noise in the living room became louder and louder, she moved the stool to the balcony to make it quiet.

Unexpectedly, the floor-to-ceiling window of the balcony suddenly pushed away,and a figure flashed next to her.

“When someone loves you, the way they talk about you is different. You feel safe and comfortable.”
― Jess C. Scott

The small clusters of gentle and beautiful eyebrows, and the small raised corners of the eyes can see the shabby settler leaning on the balcony railing, sighing like a hair dryer:

“The scenery is beautiful, but the wind is a little bit strong and I feel hungry.”

The sound of grunt and hunger came from this charming and handsome man.

The shabby prince is really a dilapidated, and the Wen family said that it is useless only to be handsome.

The problem is that when Wen Man listened to this voice, she remembered that she couldn’t eat dinner because of her mother’s urgency, so she was hungry and couldn’t hold it anymore.

She looked carefully into the living room, everyone in Wen’s family was doing everything they could to get up to the marriage. At this time, if you shout hungry, you will not only be horrified, but you will also definitely be embarrassed by Xu Yu’e. Forget it. Wen Man placed the book lightly, stood up, and prepared to sneak out to find food for himself.

However, the shabby household turned his head and stared at her. A pair of mixed eyes of various colors made Wen Man’s spine look a little hairy. This person is obviously going hungry, and he seems to be a little bit resentful. It may be that when he was brought to Wen’s house, he thought he could be invited to eat a meal, but he didn’t expect to be hungry without the free meal.

“If you don’t mind eating instant noodles—” Wen Man opened his lips carefully, paying attention to the situation in the living room.

However, this shabby price is so arrogant, can he accept the suggestion of eating instant noodles?

The tall and tall figure flashed quickly, grabbed one of her hands, nodded like garlic, and said, “No problem, as long as it can fill the stomach, anything is fine.”

This poor man can’t even afford instant noodles.

Wen Man doesn’t know how to describe this momentary complex feeling in her heart: pity for the same illness?

All the people in the living room moved to the study room to watch Mo Wen Yang perform calligraphy. Wen Man walked to the door and opened the door, and the two of them slipped out smoothly.

Outside the house, as he said, the night scene was beautiful, and a round of moonlight shone on the road in the community, shining the shadows of the two. The wind is a little bit stronger, and the green plants in the community can be heard rustling, making it seem quiet.

“The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself.
Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light.
The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”
― Tahereh Mafi

When you reach the corner of the intersection, there is a small shop.

Wen Man touched the pockets of her jeans. She happened to have more than a dozen dollars for change after buying a paintbrush for Wen Yuan. She discussed with the owner of the commissary: “I want two bowls of Master Kong beef noodles. Can you flush us with hot water?  We put the fabric ourselves. By the way, I also want a pack of mustard greens.”

After the commissary owner received the money, he followed her instructions and helped her get everything ready. So, Wen Man began to unpack the noodle bowls and put ingredients in the two-noodle bowls. In the eyes of others, her way of discharging is a bit strange, instead of putting all the ingredients in one piece according to the instructions and soaking in hot water. The commissary owner and Jiang Yan watched her keep busy with the two-noodle bowls with a pair of small hands. They were surprised and talking from the heart: Does it take so much trouble to eat instant noodles?

“Okay,meal is ready to serve.” After a few minutes, Wen Man smiled in satisfaction with a pair of crescent eyes.

When Jiang Yan took the noodle bowl she handed over, there was a pause in her smiling eyes that looked like crescent moons, and the handsome face seemed to flash with a daze.

“Let’s sit there for dinner, don’t hinder others from doing business.” Wen Man lowered his head, holding his noodle bowl and sat on the stone piers on both sides of the street.

Jiang Yan took two slender legs and sat beside her in a few steps, he follows her to lift the cover of the noodle bowl. The scent rushing on the face is like the taste of ordinary instant noodles, with a touch of more appetizing. Looking down the noodles and dried vegetables floating on the bowl seemed to be soaked just right, and there was no slick. Jiang Yan stirred the plastic fork in the noodles, picked it up and sucked it into his mouth. His eyes were stunned: delicious!

Instant noodles and dried vegetables that are just soaked in this way are not something ordinary people can make.

Wen Man ate slowly beside him, to the level of gentleness, without making the slightest sound of eating noodles.

Jiang Yan’s stomach was very hungry. The noodles were delicious. He raised the noodle bowl and grumbled and drank the soup in the noodle bowl to the bottom in one breath. After eating clean, he was also a little startled: he never knew instant noodles could be so delicious.

Wen Man only ate half a bowl, took out a package of tissues from her jacket bag, and gave him one.

Jiang Yan folded a stack of paper towels and took them to wipe the corners of his mouth slowly. After hesitating, he asked, “Do you often eat instant noodles? ”

Her skills in making instant noodles and eating instant noodles are superb and should be after a long time of practice. Ordinary people probably think so.

After Wen Man froze for a while, she smiled amusedly: “How is it possible?”

Jiang Yan saw her smile,and this time he was not startled. A complex calmness appeared in her eyes when he looked at her: “You–very good.”

Wen Man was even more stunned: “Hey?”

“Everyone in your family knows my situation, only you are willing to invite me to eat.”  When Jiang Yan said this, there was nothing ashamed of his poverty on his handsome face.

Wen Man blinked his eyelashes slightly curled up: This shabby prince is really extraordinary arrogance.

CHAPTER 3 – THE THROBBING OF A BOWL OF INSTANT NOODLES BREWING

Late Wedding – Chapter 1 – Blind Date Banquet

“A wedding is and event, but marriage is a life.”
By Myles Munroe

Chapter 1 – Blind Date Banquet

Early in the morning, when Wen Man left the house, hers mother Xu Yu’e chased her to the door and said:

“Man Man, Yuan Yuan needs two brushes and a box of gouache paint. When you get off work, take a detour to the stationery store which is next door to the Academy of Fine Arts to buy it back.”

After saying this, Xu Yu’e didn’t wait for her eldest daughter to agree, and she turned it back into the house without giving her eldest daughter money.

This is mostly the case since childhood. Wen Man is the boss of the family, and she gives her sister Wen Yuan everything. This law seems to be taken for granted by her parents and her sister.

Wen Man opened hers wallet and looked inside, less than a hundred dollars. Think of the stationery store next door to the Academy of Fine Arts, which is the most expensive art supplies stationery store in the city. She folded back into her room, took out the salary seal she had just got the day before yesterday, and pulled out another two hundred dollars from it. In this way, she has no pocket money this month except for the maintenance fees paid to her parents.

When I arrived at the company, the early summer of my college classmate and best friend took Wen Man’s shoulder: “My husband is not at home tonight, I don’t want to cook, how about going to eat Japanese sushi together?”

“No money.” Wen Man speaking honest.

“You only got your salary the day before yesterday.” Chu Xia was a little surprised, and immediately understood, sighed, “Man Man, uncle and auntie are really partial. Don’t you resist?”

The corners of Wen Man’s lips were slightly pressed, and her smile was like a lady in a TV series.

Chu Xia knew that this best friend was not outstanding. Only when she was smiling, hers two black eyes were like crescent moons, and she could kill men, women, and children. It’s just that Wen Man’s smile can only be spread to people who she trusts. The average person sees Wen Man, with a thin face, big black glasses covering most of his face, and she likes to hide in the corner, like an invisible person.

I remember that there was a reunion, and she and Wen Man were present. As a result, when it was about to end, the host counted the people present and handed out gifts, shouting: “Hey, didn’t Wen Man come tonight?”

Wen Man raised hers hand silently in the corner: “Yes.”

The host was so ashamed that he almost dug a hole in the ground.

…………………

“Chu Xia.I heard that you are going to Bei Huo with your husband.” Wen Man interrupted her best friend’s wandering in a word.

Wen Man’s voice is born, like a little sheep, soft and fluffy. Her voice, some people hate, some people like. Chu Xia likes it, but Wen Man’s family, especially Wen Man’s younger sister, hates her sister’s voice.

Chu Xia is often surprised after listening to the voice of a good friend, before saying:“ What’s wrong? Have you figured it out? Finally thought of leaving that home?”

Wen Man sipped her lips and did not answer.

Chu Xia hugged her shoulder: “If you want, come with us, and  three of us will take care of each other.”

“I don’t paint dreams or nightmares, I paint my own reality.”

In the evening, punch in at the company on time to get off work. Chu Xia accompanied Wen Man and took a detour to the most expensive stationery store in the city. He bought Wen Yuan two brushes and a box of pigments, both good brands, and removed more than 230 dollars at the checkout. Wen Man thought: Fortunately, I brought an extra two hundred dollars.

Chu Xia complained about her again: “All the money you make is invested in your sister. When she is famous, will she repay you?”

“Our whole family has invested in her alone, not just me.” Wen Man used this to prevaricate her best friend’s concern.

“Cheh! With her ability, I don’t believe she can be admitted to the Central Academy of Fine Arts.” Chu Xia raised the bar; I really can’t see it.

“Better than me. I’m just a second grade of universities. She is a key high school, and she should have been able to go to first grade of universities.” Wen Man said sternly.

“I really want to curse her that she can’t get in to the first grade of universities.” Chu Xia vowed to die.

Wen Man pursed her lips: “Immoral.”

Wen Man often made a witty remark in silence.

Chu Xia felt that after so many years of dating, she still couldn’t see what kind of person Wen Man was.

When the two wanted to get on the bus and go to a Japanese sushi restaurant in the city center, Wen Man’s cell phone rang suddenly.

“Mom, what can I do for you? I am tonight——–”

“You hurry to your second uncle‘s house now, all the girls must attend the family gathering tonight.” Xu Yu’e finished speaking, and without her daughter’s reply, she “snapped” and hung up the phone.

“What’s wrong?” Chu Xia asked.

“My mother asked me to go to my second uncle’s house. We have a big family gathering tonight.” Wen Man made a bitter face, “I’m sorry, Chu Xia.”

“Haha! It’s okay, I’m used to being put on the plane by you, at most the next meal on you, I still earn.” Chu Xia grinned generously, and then looked at Wen Man’s clothes, “If you have a big family gathering, are you sure you going to wear it like this?”

Wen Man works in the mounting room, often stained with some paint or something on his clothes, so he works in the most ordinary clothes. Like today, a polka-dot shirt has been stained with some colored paste on the pendulum, which cannot be washed off, and the jeans below have been smeared with two ink spots.

“It doesn’t matter, it’s just a family gathering.” Wen Man glanced at himself and shook his head, “If I go back for a change, I will be scolded by my family for being late.”

Therefore, Wen Man took another bus after breaking up with Chu Xia at the bus station.

Wen Man’s second uncle, named Wen Shirong, holds a clerical position in the city hall, and is one of the richest in the Wen family. Wen Shirong’s house is in Shengtang Garden. The market price is 10,000 dollars per square meter. It is located on the first floor of the community, with five bedrooms and three living rooms, and a small garden.

But if possible, Wen Man never wanted to step into the door of his second uncle’s house.

This is to say that Wen Man’s grandfather died early, and there was only one grandma living in the old house. Wen Man’s father, Wen Shixuan, was the eldest son of the Wen family. He was supposed to become the eldest of the Wen family after the death of his parents, taking charge of the whole family’s affairs. However, Wen Shixuan lived very poorly, and he and his wife opened a grocery store, barely making ends meet. Therefore, the boss of a family who is now in charge has become the second brother Wen Shirong.

Wen Shixuan couldn’t hold his head up in the family, and Xu Yu’e was also humiliated even though she was called the sister-in-law. The two failed to give birth to a son to inherit the incense, so all hopes were placed on the two daughters. Although, Wen Man is the oldest of the seven girls of the Wen family’s generation but is the least promising one. Wen Man couldn’t even go to a key high school. She only took a second-grade universities, and the company she came out to work for was mediocre. She is twenty-nine years old today, and she couldn’t even talk about a partner.

Xu Yu’e felt that her eldest daughter was humiliated, and she poured all her thoughts into her second daughter Wen Yuan. At least Wen Yuan went to a key high school, and the target was a key university in Beijing.

Wen Man rang the doorbell of the second uncle’s house.

With a tick, it was Wen Haoxue, the daughter of second uncle, who opened the door for her.

Wen Haoxue is twenty-two this year and is studying at a media university in the city. Her appearance is biased towards her mother Zhang Qiuyan, with a round face, long wavy hair, and a pair of beautiful eyes slightly like red phoenix eyes.

Wen Man was slightly surprised: Wen Haoxue was at home tonight? Why did Wen Haoxue wear high heels on her feet and red makeup on her face, as if she was going out to a banquet?

“Sister Man Man, didn’t your mother tell you anything?” It seemed that it was Wen Haoxue who should express amazement when she looked at the clothes and pants that Wen Man had contaminated.

“What’s wrong, today is not just an ordinary family gathering?” Wen Man asked, and the pen and paint she bought for Wen Yuan were still in the plastic bag she was carrying.

As soon as Wen Haoxue looked at her expression, she guessed that she didn’t know anything. She first pulled her into the door, and then said in detail: “My dad, brought the sons of two colleagues over.”

“Hey?” Wen Man was pulled straight by her and walked all the way to the living room.

Inside, there are three generation of Wen family men and women inside and outside, men in uniform formal suits and ties, and women are all dressed to the nines. Such a large line-up scared Wen Man very much.

“Man Man, why are you dressed like this?” Xu Yu’e saw her daughter for the first time and jumped up and pointed. At this call, everyone heard the voice and focused their eyes on Wen Man. Xu Yu’e regretted it, lost his face, and suddenly sat back in his seat.

Wen Haoxue’s mother, Zhang Qiuyan, came over and seemed to ask with concern: “What’s going on, Haoxue?”

Wen Haoxue said in front of everyone in the living room: “Sister Man Man doesn’t know what the party tonight is for. The elder aunt didn’t seem to tell her.”

Wen Man frowned and wanted to open his mouth.

Xu Yu’e has rushed to say: “I have ordered Yuanyuan to let her call and tell her sister, be sure to remember to go home and change clothes.”

Wen Yuan saw her mother kick the ball on her head, and her face didn’t change: “I called my sister, but my sister didn’t listen. If you don’t believe me, you can ask Shu Ya. I also asked Shu Ya to call Wen Man once.”

After receiving Wen Yuan’s wink, Liao Shu Ya, who was reading a magazine with Wang Yun Yun, heard this, and her face did not change color: “I called Sister Man Man, sister Man Man must be in the car, and didn’t hear it.”

Several people rolled the responsibilities and returned to Wen Man herself. Wen Man smiled slightly without showing her teeth.

Seeing that the elder daughter didn’t care at all, Xu Yu’e heart telling herself that Wen Man is still far from their expectations.

“Since this is the case, Sister-in-law, let Hao Xue borrow a set of clothes for Man Man to wear.” Zhang Qiu Yan said openly and showed the demeanour of the mother of the family in a cordial manner.

Xu Yu’e frowned, thinking: If she accepts it, she can’t swallow this breath in her heart. If she doesn’t accept it, others will say that she only cares about her own face and ignores her daughter. What to say, this wronged one has to swallow it.

Wen Hao Xue received her mother’s eyes, and smiled unsmilingly to pull Wen Man into her room.

However, Wen Man took off her hands and said to everyone, “Thank you for your kindness. But Hao Xue’s clothes are a bit too big for me, I don’t think able to fit me.”

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA——

The first person to laugh out is the youngest and only boy in the Wen family. Unfortunately, it is a grand-children named Wang Shao Han. Thirteen years old this year, studying in the standard five. On weekdays, he is held in the palm of his parents like a little emperor. He has always been heartless. If you want to laugh, you can laugh, and if you want to cry, you say he doesn’t understand his mind, but he is very clever.

When everyone saw it, they also knew what Wang Shao Han was laughing at. Among the few girls, Wen Hao Xue is the plumpest and Wen Man is the slimmest. If it hadn’t been for Zhang Qiu Yan spending a lot of money to buy Wen Hao Xue brand-name shirts, with Wen Hao Xue’s figure, wearing Wen Man’s unbranded uniform clothes would have been even uglier than pigs.

The expressions of Wen Hao Xue and her daughter fell at the same time.

Wen Man didn’t think at all that they could be kind enough to borrow her clothes.  In some ways, her parents are just foolhardy, and her second uncle’s family is cunning like a fox. Wen Man, who had already seen through this, walked from her various eyes to a stool near the balcony, habitually hiding herself in the shadow.

This blind date feast, to put it bluntly, Uncle Wen is looking for so many girls, but to set off his daughter Wen Hao Xue. Other girls, it’s not that they don’t know the thoughts of the second uncle family, but they don’t want to lose the opportunity to fly on the branches and become phoenix. But she Wen Man has self-knowledge. If there were Cinderella and Prince Charming everywhere in this world, it wouldn’t be called Cinderella Fairy tale.

Click — the door opened, Wen Shi Rong was in front, and the two handsome and upright figures behind him firmly attracted the girls’ eyes.

“The second one is obviously more handsome.”
