Face dark, Sheng Qingyi reached for the sweet and sour spareribs.
Sheng Yize picked up the last piece and put it into An Xiaxia’s bowl. He then said gently, “Xiaxia, this is your favorite. Have some more.”
Sheng Qingyi’s hand froze awkwardly in mid-air.
Sheng Qingyi: … Son, you do realize I’m your only father, don’t you?
With one setback after another, Sheng Qingyi hardly tasted anything during the meal.
After dinner, Grandpa and Grandma Sheng took An Xiaxia aside to chat again. Sheng Yize went up to the three and saw that An Xiaxia was teaching the elderly couple how to use the internet.
“Grandma, this icon that looks like a little eye is called ‘Weibo.’ You can post pictures and videos on it…” An Xiaxia held an iPad, instructing Grandma Sheng.
Grandma Sheng was like a little child as she poked around on the screen. At An Xiaxia’s instruction, she become Sheng Yize’s follower.
“Why, it’s true! Aren’t these my grandson’s photos? Let me what else he’s got there…” Grandma Sheng was over the moon. “Little Xiaxia, you’re so smart.”
“And these pillows are for you and grandpa. They’re good for your eyes!” An Xiaxia took out all sorts of gifts, as if she was presenting treasure. “This back scratcher can also be used for guasha … This is a hands-free stand. With this, you don’t have to hold your phone or iPad in your hands all the time…”
She had carefully picked the gifts herself, which Grandpa and Grandma Sheng appreciated greatly.
A few steps away, Sheng Qingyi scoffed. Those were just worthless gadgets! Where did she even find the courage to take them out?!
He glanced at his son, who was watching An Xiaxia with a gentle look on his face. The affection in those eyes was unmistakable.
Sheng Qingyi asked coldly, “Must you set yourself against me?”
Sheng Yize replied indifferently without looking back, “What’s wrong with bringing my girlfriend to see my grandparents?”
“You know perfectly well that I will never let her into the Sheng family! She’s an ungrateful wretch! I’ve told her already: everyone has to know their place. How can a girl her age be so shameless…” Sheng Qingyi let it slip in his fury.
Sheng Yize narrowed his eyes. “You talked to her behind my back?”
Sheng Qingyi kept his silence.
The temperature around Sheng Yize seemed to drop as he clenched his fists.
“I told you, stay out of my way!” Sheng Yize growled. The intimidating air made Sheng Qingyi feel suffocated.
“Sheng Yize! How do you enable the internet banking service again? I’m teaching Grandma how to shop online~” A sweet voice broke the standoff between the two men.
Sheng Yize smiled coldly. “Mess with her again and there will be consequences!”
Sheng Qingyi shuddered. Was Sheng Yize turning against him for a girl like that?
Before he could berate his son for his behavior, Sheng Yize was walking toward An Xiaxia and saying unhurriedly, “Dummy… Come here, I’ll set it up for you.”
Sheng Qingyi’s face turned grim when he heard how Sheng Yize talked to An Xiaxia. His heart sank.
An Xiaxia didn’t expect the day to pass this fast.
Seeing that it was already very late, she was considering saying goodbye. However, Grandma Sheng tugged at her sleeve and wouldn’t have it. “Little Xiaxia, we’re just a lonely old couple here… Didn’t you say you were going to teach us how to use WeChat?”
An Xiaxia didn’t know whether to cry or laugh. Sheng Yize chimed in, “We’ll stay for the night, then.”
After that, he ignored the baffled look on An Xiaxia’s face and took her to the guest room right away.
Behind them, Grandma Sheng winked. “Tsk, tsk… Very nice, my dear grandson. Go on, make us proud!”
