A Joyful Happening in the House - Chapter 7.4
As Mother Su nagged on and on, she rolled her eyes towards the door, showing disagreement towards her daughter’s behavior, “Taking what happened that year as an example. The school-whatsoever-belle in their class, she’s the daughter of the Yang family that lives in the building in front of us – do you know how despiteful that damned woman is? As if her house housed a great number of literature collections and because her parents are slightly more cultural than others, she kept on bringing a dictionary here and there. Not to mention she even had the disgusting look of a fragile and weak little woman. For reasons unknown, that damned brat got to know her and got along with her. Chun Qing, for sure you don’t like such a woman that pretends to be fragile and weak right?”
“Ah……” He was focusing on listening about Dear Wife’s past, so he did not expect mother-in-law to turn the mouth of the gun towards him and ask him about his preference. He slightly coughed and answered, “It’s not about if I like or not. I already belong to Dear Wife, so mother-in-law don’t need to worry about scandals that will bring harm to the family.”
“Pa” Mother Su slammed the table.
“That’s right, this is how a man should be. Father of our child, our Xiao Ao sure is lucky.”
Father Su expressionlessly chewed his foods and ignored the sudden events that happen in the house.
“Eh? Chun Qing, where did I stop earlier?”
“Dear Wife keeps on spending her time with the lady with a house that housed a great number of literature collection, and you’re not happy with that.”
“Ah, that’s right, that’s right. Not only am I not happy with that, it’s to the point where I feel nauseous. Do you know how sinister and evil that woman is? She had an interest in a boy from the nouwhat rich, but said things like their aura is not suitable for someone like her. So she was not willing to go and confess. If you’re not going to confess then just don’t, but she wanted to have him in her hands……”
“Mother-in-law… Excuse me for cutting you off, by ‘having him in her hands’…… means?”
“Aiyo, it means to seduce him. That damned brat infected me with all these indecent words.”
“…… Please continue”
“I stopped at……”
“Have. Him. In. Her. Hands.” He reminded her word by word.
“Oh, that’s right. That despiteful woman wanted to have him in her hands, and so, Xiao Ao that pig head loyally agreed to help her out. Do you know what does that despiteful woman of the Yang family asked her to do?”
“…… To fight?” Seems like up till this point, it is the only strength he can find within Dear Wife.
“It would be good if it’s only fighting. She asked Xiao Ao to pretend to admire and droll over that son of the nouveau rich, and to bully her in front of him; all of that just so to let the hero save the beauty. There was even a script for the dialogue too.”
“…… I shall remember this, just wait and see?”
“Eh, Chun Qing, you’re really smart.”
“……” He can’t think of a character more suitable to have this dialogue.
“In the end, the both of them went to be lovey-dovey while that damned brat was looked down upon till this day in the school. In order to protect her image, she had gone and become a delinquent. Aiyo, it’s my fault for not accumulating enough virtues during the time I’m pregnant with her.”
“Mother-in-law, do you want some tea?”
After Ji Chun Qing listened to the story, he gave an after-meal suggestion indifferently. This had let Mother Su felt startled. Is he possibly indicating that she’s way too talkative and disrupted his rule of not speaking and making any sounds when eating and sleeping, thus why he gave her a cup of water to shut her up? This young man is supposed to be the perfect son, no? He has all the looks, mannerisms, behaviourisms, and not to mention he was not being aggressive and neither was he being too passive. But why is it that at times, it felt as if his heart is cold, while also giving out the air of someone that’s not easy to approach and not a good target to offend?
