Episode 65

(Not A Bad Move)

Xi Xiaye felt goosebumps when she saw Wang Hui’s grin. A cold wind blew behind her and made her shiver.

Why did she feel like she had just fallen into a wolf’s den?

Wang Hui quickly erased her smile when she noticed Xi Xiaye’s uneasiness. A kind smile returned to her face once again and she gently patted Xi Xiaye’s hands which were resting on her lap. “Don’t mind me. I’m just overjoyed to have a pretty granddaughter-in-law! You’re really quick-handed, aren’t you? But that’s how a soldier should do it! Attack when you have the chance. There’s nothing wrong with being decisive, is there?”

Wang Hui was really satisfied with Xi Xiaye. Although she had browsed through Xi Xiaye’s profile before she sent Mu Yuchen on the blind date, now that she saw her in person, she thought that she seemed very similar to her mother, Shen Wenna. Even their personalities were similar: quiet, humble, and elegant. Moreover, she was a high achiever. Where else could she look for a granddaughter-in-law like this?

As expected of his impeccable taste, Chen was spot-on this time!

“Chen, you’re much more charming than your father!” Wang Hui laughed happily as she took a sip from her cup of tea. She exercised restraint when she received a cold warning stare from Mu Yuchen. Glancing at the time and realizing that it was pretty late already, she said, “I don’t really mean anything. I just heard your father mention you two, and Manager Chen gave me a call too, so I was curious and came over”

“I’ve already decided to bring her home in a few days. There are quite a lot of things to work on. Isn’t my mother coming back in a few days from her inspection trip in City B?” Mu Yuchen said indifferently.

“She called your father today. She’s coming back tomorrow afternoon.” Wang Hui glanced at Mu Yuchen secretly.

“Okay, I’ve got it, I’ll go back the day after tomorrow. We’ll chat again tomorrow if there’s anything else. It’s pretty late already. Decide for yourself if you want to go back or stay over for the night.”

“I’ll go back, I’ll go back. Don’t worry, I won’t interrupt you guys! Okay, it’s set then. Come back on the morning of the day after tomorrow. I’ll get them to be prepared. Right, Granddaughter-in-law, what do you like to eat?” Wang Hui seemed pleased. Her smile was really warm and did not feel distant at all.

Xi Xiaye was stunned for a moment. She then replied with a polite smile, “I’m not very picky. My taste is pretty close to his.”

She dragged Mu Yuchen into the conversation shamelessly because she had no idea how to answer her. Moreover, she had had several meals with him before and she noticed they both preferred more light-tasting food.

Wang Hui’s smile was growing wider with each word just like a chrysanthemum in full bloom. She nodded and then stood up. “Alright, then I’ve got it. I’ll go back now. Remember to come by earlier then. I hope I didn’t scare you tonight!”

Xi Xiaye shook her head gently, feeling rather shy under Wang Hui’s gentle and passionate stare. “It’s okay. It’s my fault for not visiting first. I hope you can forgive me.”

Wang Hui nodded vigorously like a chicken pecking grains on the ground. “I understand! I really understand! I was young and in love once. As long as you guys are in love with each other, you’ve gotten the marriage certificate anyway, so you can do whatever you like. Acting on impulse isn’t bad. On the other hand, acting irresponsibly on impulse is a bad move. Don’t worry. There’s nothing wrong with moving in together as a married couple. It isn’t a bad move at all. We elders are pretty open-minded and can accept it.”

She then touched all her pockets, unable to find anything. She smiled at Xi Xiaye awkwardly. “I’m sorry, my child. I rushed over here and didn’t bring you anything. I even forgot to get you a red packet. My bad.”

After some thinking, she took off the green jade bracelet from her hand before she pulled Xi Xiaye’s slender hand and put it on with a smile. “Alright, take this as a first meeting gift from me. His grandfather gave this jade bracelet to me back then as our token of love. It’s pretty troublesome to wear it around although I just felt like putting it on these few days. You look really great with it!”

“Grandmother, I… It’s okay”

Xi Xiaye wanted to decline and was about to take it off, but the man threw her a glance and then spoke up, “Bring her a few more next time. I know there’s a lot of stuff like this among the dowry Grandfather gave you.”

“You cheeky brat, you’re just like your grandfather. Devious chap! Do you think I’ll treat my granddaughter-in-law poorly? We’ll talk again once you come back. It’s already late. I’ll go back now. You two rest earlier as well! Remember to bring her back! Or you’ll face the consequences!”

While Maple Residence was pretty spacious, there was only one bedroom. Wang Hui would not disturb the newlyweds, so she quickly left. After all, there were many more chances in the future to talk and she did not want to ruin the youngsters’ fun!

Xi Xiaye slowly drew the curtains in a daze after Wang Hui got into the car hastily. When she came back to her senses, she noticed that the man was already lying on the bed and flipping through one of the books she had bought.

“Aren’t you going to tell me something?” Xi Xiaye went over and sat down on the edge of the bed as she looked at him with her quiet eyes.

“About?” He raised his head and looked at her in doubt. Then, he took his coat offand passed it to her.

Xi Xiaye frowned, taking the coat and putting it on the chair beside the bed as she said, “I don’t know anything about your family. Shouldn’t I be prepared if I’m going back with you?”

She suddenly felt a headache as she mentioned it.

Mu Yuchen gave her a meaningful look when he saw her eyes glower and he laughed. “Are you nervous?”

“Which part of me looks nervous? I just feel like we didn’t consider a bit more before making our decision.” Xi Xiaye seemed troubled.

“Isn’t it too late to think about that now?” Mu Yuchen looked at her funnily.

“You’re the one who said to go to the Civil Affairs Bureau immediately!” Xi Xiaye could not help but to give him a glare.
