The corner of Sheng Yize’s mouth twitched. Why did he feel like he was being sold off by his grandmother?
Grandma Sheng went on prompting her. “Xiaxia, are you worried about being unhappy after marrying into a rich family? It’s perfectly fine with us if you don’t want to move in! Yize can move in with you! Your grandpa and I are very open about these things! Your children can have your family name if you want!”
Sheng Yize was speechless. He wasn’t just getting sold off, they were now paying An Xiaxia to accept him?
An Xiaxia was flustered. “Grandma, that’s not what I meant.”
“So you agree? Hey, grandpa, get me the calendar. Let’s find an auspicious day for them to get engaged!” Veterans were indeed more capable than newbies. Sheng Yize was amazed by how Grandma Sheng had handled An Xiaxia with the easiest trick.
He smiled when he saw the bemused look on An Xiaxia’s face.
He couldn’t care less who married into whose family. The thought alone of being together with An Xiaxia was enough to make him look forward to his life in the future.
As the elderly couple checked the calendar excitedly, an unexpected guest arrived.
“Grandpa, Grandma, how are you?” Li Fanxing walked in with a gentle smile.
Grandma Sheng greeted her warmly as she always did. “Why, isn’t it Fanxing? It’s been a while!”
“It is. Grandma, you look much younger these days! What’s your secret?” Li Fanxing put on a show as she struck up a conversation. However, she glanced at An Xiaxia when no one was looking.
Her own home was not far from the old Sheng family home. On her way back just then, she had spotted Sheng Yize’s car, as well as An Xiaxia in the passenger’s seat…
He was taking An Xiaxia to his old family home… They were definitely moving forward in their relationship…
From what she knew about the elderly couple, both of them liked kids, but Sheng Yize and An Xiaxia hadn’t reached the lawful age for marriage yet. However, an engagement was very possible!
How could An Xiaxia get the man when she couldn’t?
She would pay any price to ruin this relationship!
Darting a look at the calendar on the table, Li Fanxing feigned a confused tone. “Grandma, is something good happening?”
Grandma Sheng couldn’t stop grinning. “My dear grandson and granddaughter-in-law are getting engaged! Why, Fanxing, you’re invited to the engagement party!”
Li Fanxing’s face turned rigid as if she had just swallowed a fly.
They were indeed getting engaged!
Damn it! An Xiaxia, what merits do you have to earn the recognition of the elder members of the Sheng family?
After casting a stern look at An Xiaxia, Li Fanxing put on an envious expression. “That’s great! Grandma, I’m so happy for you…”
Grandma Sheng grinned, delighted by those words.
After fawning over Grandma Sheng, Li Fanxing suddenly let out a cry, “Wow, Xiaxia, where did you buy this dress? It’s so pretty!”
She then sat down next to An Xiaxia and pretended to chat with the latter. Lowering her voice, she said, “You bitch! Do you really think you can marry into the Sheng family? In your dreams!”
An Xiaxia clenched her fists. “At least I have something to dream on. What about you? Do you even have a chance to do that?”
Li Fanxing’s face drained of all color at that rebuttal. She took a deep breath and tried to come up with harsher words when Sheng Yize’s cold gaze landed on her, stopping her from trying anything else.
“Teehee…” She giggled inanely and switched tactics. “An Xiaxia, do you want… the case dropped?”
An Xiaxia bit her lip. Grandma Sheng asked happily at that moment, “Xiaxia, how do you like October 8th in the lunar calendar?”
“Say no!” Li Fanxing said in a threatening voice!
