Everyone knew that Jiang Xinyi almost became Qiao Yu’s fiancée, but no one knew what happened to the engagement.
Yes, the truth was, Qiao Yu refused to marry her.
The Old Master of the Qiao family felt guilty about it, so he asked everyone who knew about this not to talk about it. This was why she was able to let the rumors about her and Qiao Yu’s engagement fly.
But after a long time, the engagement never led to a wedding. Therefore, everyone started to think it was just a rumor.
Jiang Xinyi looked at Gao Wanhua awkwardly. She was somewhat helpless and did not know what to say.
Jiang Peiyun also did not expect Gao Wanhua to be so outright and she felt a bit awkward too. She then said at once, “Back then, Yu was still young and didn’t want to get married. Everyone understood. But now he’s getting older and Xinyi can’t just wait forever. Since it was Father-in-law’s idea, why don’t you just let it be, Sister-in-law?”
Gao Wanhua looked at Jiang Peiyun and smiled. “I can’t agree with you on that. Marriage is a big decision for Yu’s life. I can’t just make decisions for him.”
Song Qing could not take it anymore. She stood up and said to Gao Wanhua, “What you are saying, Mrs. Qiao, is that our Xinyi is not good enough for your Qiao Yu then.”
Seeing her mother’s ugly face, Jiang Xinyi pulled Song Qing a little at once and gestured her not to be impulsive. In fact, they were here to beg today, so how could they lose their temper at her?
Gao Wanhua looked at Song Qing and said with a smile, “Mrs. Song, you wronged me. I didn’t mean that at all. I just think that marriage is a matter between two people. As parents, we can’t really meddle with that. Miss Jiang is a nice girl with good looks, but maybe she’s just not the one for Yu. If it’s their fate then we can’t force it.”
“Sister-in-law, what do you mean by forcing it?” Jiang Peiyun was not happy. “When boys and girls get older, they are supposed to get married. Isn’t that very reasonable? Yu’s been busy with work all these years and did not have time to be in a relationship. Clearly, he won’t have anyone in mind. But if it’s because of this that he doesn’t get married, that’s just absurd. Xinyi is a good girl who listens to people. She’s also got a good education and will make a good wife.”
Gao Wanhua nodded, “Miss Jiang does look like a very gentle girl. It’s just that our Qiao Yu has not made up his mind yet and he’s probably not the one for Miss Jiang. Therefore, it’s better not to waste Miss Jiang’s time.”
Song Qing was completely agitated by now. She glared at Gao Wanhua. “Sure, your Qiao family is a big family, so of course you don’t think much of us, Mrs. Qiao. But, I don’t believe our Xinyi won’t be able to find a better husband.” As she spoke, she grabbed her bag and walked towards the outside.
Jiang Peiyun saw this and darted a look at Gao Wanhua with blame. She then followed her out.
Jiang Xinyi saw her mother leaving in anger but did not follow her.
When the talk turned out like this, how could she not know Gao Wanhua would not approve of the marriage? But she could not understand why Qiao Yu did not like her and neither did Gao Wanhua. No matter how bad she was, she was still better than some actress like Xia Ning.
“Auntie, do you know that I have liked Brother Qiao from a very young age?” Jiang Xinyi stared at Gao Wanhua and said suddenly.
Gao Wanhua looked at her and sighed. “I mean what I just said. Relationship is a matter between two people. If one person just holds on to it forever, it will eventually become a pain for both.”
Jiang Xinyi smiled slightly, “True. It is me who’s holding on to it. I thought I could be the one in Brother Qiao’s heart, but I was wrong. I’m not!” She turned to Gao Wanhua suddenly. “But even if Brother Qiao doesn’t like me, he shouldn’t fall for an actress. Auntie, do you know? Bro Qiao likes a filthy actress.”
