Listening to Yang Chens question, Liu Mingyu remained quiet for a bit before smiling. My parents are as average as parents get. My mom is the average housewife. All she does is cook and socialize by playing Mahjong with other middle-aged ladies. My dad runs a business in Beijing and doesnt come home often. Back then, I would only usually manage to see him a couple times a year. I believe hes planning to develop his business in Zhonghai, so he has been home more often nowadays.
Then what are their hobbies? Yang Chen asked.
I dont think they are particularly interested in anything. Also, they dont like to be high-profile. Dont buy them too many gifts. They wont be able to appreciate it, Liu Mingyu reminded.
Yang Chen guessed that her parents would have been ordinary family seniors. He asked, Have you told your parents about what kind of a person I am?
I I just said I knew you at the workplace and youre the director of the subsidiary company, Liu Mingyu said.
Didnt they asked about anything else? Yang Chen didnt believe that anyones parents would be satisfied with such little information.
They they asked when were going to get married. I I didnt know how to answer, so I made the arrangements for them to meet you, and for you to answer them, Liu Mingyu said softly. She was usually confident, but she found it hard to speak now.
Yang Chen knew that he had been terrible on this aspect. Evidently, he couldnt just submit a wedding date, nor could he promise anything of that kind in the foreseeable future. Thus, he had to think of ways to convince her parents so that they wouldnt oppose their relationship.
An ordinary approach definitely wouldnt solve this problem. Therefore, Yang Chen felt that he might have to use some unconventional means.
But the more he pondered, the less he could come up with. All he could do was cross the bridge when he came to it.
The dinner was booked at a quiet vegetarian restaurant in Zhonghai. He heard that Liu Mingyus father was a vegetarian, so no meat would be served for the meal.
From this point, her father was placed as the center of the family, which made Yang Chen feel that there shouldnt be a problem as long as he could convince her father.
He drove to the refined and quiet restaurant. When he got off his car and walked to the entrance, Liu Mingyu could be seen waiting there anxiously. Yang Chen couldnt help but smile when he noticed her nervous expression after approaching her. Are you this nervous? Are you worried that they might eat me?
Liu Mingyu wasnt in the mood to joke around. If my father suddenly does something later, please dont do anything reckless. Just talk nicely.
Yang Chen was wondering what she was implying. However, he soon dismissed the thought as he followed her into the private room they had booked for this occasion.
Liu Mingyu held his arm tightly as they walked. He felt her soft body shiver.
Since it was a vegetarian restaurant, it was colored in dark green, causing the place to look peaceful. The restaurant was also decorated with indoor plants, while a few pots of spider plants were hung on the ceiling.
When the door was opened, a man and a woman were revealed seated at the opposite.
Liu Mingyus mother had a similar look with her daughter. Although she had slight crow's feet, it could be seen that she used to be stunning and elegant. She revealed a complicated expression when Yang Chen came inside, giving rise to confusion within him.
The man seated beside the woman wore a grey striped suit. The hair on his slightly bald head was combed tidily to the back of his head. His eyes stared at Yang Chen, sharp like knives, but he held a faint smile on his face, making the whole scene rather confusing.
When Yang Chen saw Liu Mingyus father, he finally understood why she was so nervous. He definitely wasnt an ordinary person, as his body contained killing aura.
He was a man who had taken numerous lives. He certainly wasnt the businessman whom Liu Mingyu had described him as.
Yang Chen suddenly found it interesting. He wasnt very annoyed by the matter regarding how he would face the marriage anymore.
You must be Yang Chen. Please come inside and have a seat, the mother said smilingly. Ive wanted to meet you for some time now, but Yuer wasnt willing to meet us. Shes almost always busy. Its good for young people to be busy, but you cant always delay your marriage, can you?
It became painfully clear that Liu Mingyus mother wasnt someone who was easy to convince. He had just sat down for not longer than a minute before she had mentioned marriage.
Liu Qingshan. Yuers father. Liu Qingshan raised his the cup containing apple cider in a toast to Yang Chen.
Yang Chen smiled slightly as he answered, I shouldve come to meet Uncle and Aunt earlier, but I had other things to attend to prior to this.
Smiling, Liu Qingshan said, I heard from Yuer that youre the director of Yu Leis subsidiary company. You should be really impressive to sit on such a high position at this young age.
Liu Qingshans eyes held no praise. This made Yang Chen feel that he was hiding a knife in his smile.
Im flattered, Uncle. I just happen to be one of the lucky few.
Luck plays a role in strength as well, Liu Qingshan replied before turning to Liu Mingyu. Yuer, please ask the waiters to commence serving.
Liu Mingyu was overly nervous. She instantly stood up after listening to him. However, she lost balance on her high heels and fell from her wooden chair.
Yang Chen reacted instantaneously and held Liu Mingyus waist, stopping her from falling on the ground.
Being hugged by Yang Chen in front of her parents, Liu Mingyu felt that her face had gotten a little hot. She then hastily rushed outside, leaving only Yang Chen, Liu Qingshan and her wife there, causing the atmosphere to get a little stiff.
The mother held a smile on her face, but Liu Qingshans expression turned serious.
Yang Chen, how long have you known Yuer for? Liu Qingshan asked.
Yang Chen calculated for a bit. Almost six months I guess.
Then do you plan to get married anytime soon? You know that Yuer isnt getting any younger, while both of you are successful in your respective work. Marriage shouldnt be a problem for you. Liu Qingshan was really straightforward.
Yang Chen didnt expect to be asked that question so quickly. He couldnt help but smile and say, I am actually married already.
As soon as he finished speaking, the mother covered her mouth in surprise. She was obviously shocked.
Liu Qingshan, however, held a cold smile on his face. Youre surprisingly honest, Young Man. I thought you were going to bullshit us into thinking otherwise.
Why did Uncle ask Mingyu to bring me here then, if you already know about it? Yang Chen asked out of curiosity.
Liu Qingshan wanted to say something, but the door was opened from the outside!
Dad, Mom! Wheres Brother-In-Law?!
A tall and slim guy dressed in loose hip hop clothing whose hair was dyed yellow and waxed up right suddenly rushed inside. He used his small eyes to sweep across the room before fixing his gaze on Yang Chen. He looked disappointed. Is this fellow him? Why does he look so mediocre?
Minghao, why have you come so late? Did you get in a fight again? Liu Mingyus mother asked in dissatisfaction after standing up. She walked toward the guy before pulling her to sit beside her.
Liu Qingshan looked contented when he saw his son. He said to Yang Chen, This is Yuers younger brother Minghao. He used to live with me in Beijing and doesnt come to Zhonghai very often.
Yang Chen felt that Liu Mingyus family situation was more complicated than he originally imagined. Liu Mingyu stayed in Zhonghai with her mother, while her father and younger brother lived in Beijing. Evidently, Liu Mingyu and her mother were ordinary residents, while Liu Qingshan and Liu Minghao didnt look like good people.
No wonder Liu Mingyu suddenly told Yang Chen that he didnt have to come if he wasnt free. However, didnt she know how her father and brother were like before that?
Are you finding it strange that Yuer has such a father? Liu Qingshan seemed to have seen through Yang Chens thought.
Yang Chen nodded. Im indeed a little bit shocked.
Shock your ass! How dare you marry my elder sister looking like mold on rotten cheese? You should take a look at yourself in the mirror. Youre not handsome or cool at all, and you dont look strong. You definitely cant fight. My elder sisters husband has to be at least listed in The Worlds Billionaires by Foobs! Liu Minghao yelled disdainfully.
Yang Chen scratched his nose. Its Forbes.
Yes, yes, that one! Liu Minghao chuckled. I was trying to say that something Forbes!
The mother didnt blame her son for talking nonsense. She caressed Liu Minghaos cheeks affectionately as if she was treating a kid.
At this moment, Liu Mingyu returned to the room and noticed her younger brother. Displeased, she said, Minghao, you got into another fight again, didnt you? Why did you come back so late? You should just live by the streets starting from now!
After she finished speaking, she turned to Yang Chen. Hes my younger brother whos really playful, but he actually has a kind heart.
Yang Chen smiled. I can tell. He said I wasnt handsome, but didnt give me a slap on my face.
Liu Mingyu smiled a little. However, when she noticed her fathers expression, she started getting worried.
Yang Chen, the reason I called you here for a meal knowing youre already married is really simple. Liu Qingshan sipped on his apple cider before looking at Yang Chen with a sharp gaze. I dont oppose you two from getting together.
Liu Mingyu violently raised her head and looked at her father weirdly. Out of everything she expected to come out of his mouth, this wasnt one of them.
The mother, however, smiled helplessly without saying anything, as if she had known about this decision already.
Liu Minghao was most dissatisfied. He wanted to raise objections to his father, but withdrew his intention after Liu Qingshan stared at him furiously.
Yang Chen didnt know what he was feeling. He had prepared a speech tirelessly, but realized everything was in vain. However, he was happy for what had happened as well. Blinking his eyes, he smiled and said, Uncle is indeed reasonable.
Are you trying to be sarcastic? Although Im not a righteous man with only one wife, I dont really like the idea of giving away my only daughter to be a mans lover, Liu Qingshan said. Soon, he smiled and said, President Situ from Red Thorns Society is your lover as well, isnt she?
The smile on Yang Chens face instantly dissipated. He quickly realized something as he recalled what Rose had told him. Frowning, he asked, Uncle, is it possible that youre Roses gang partner?
