“You little brat, has your butt been itchy lately? How dare you tease your big sister?”
“I wasn’t teasing, Sis, you’re truly a weirdo. I’m surprised at how well you pulled off that smokey-eye look? You didn’t lose to those stars at all. The media who didn’t know what was going on even thought you were a new star GK just signed, and they were all madly taking photos of you at the time. Haha, it was hilarious.”
Huang Yue also laughed, “Although Senior Sister wasn’t a stunning beauty, but your grace is undeniable, and you were able to hold down the stage. Anyways, you’re totally my type. If you didn’t study medicine, you’ll definitely succeed in the entertainment industry.”
“You two we’re all friends here, there’s no need for so much ass-kissing. Thanks, but stop making fun of me.”
Huo Mian put her chopsticks in her mouth and smiled as she watched the two of them giggle and tease her at the same time
“Zhixin, you need to treat your older sister with respect. You’re young, but she’s a married woman. Don’t be silly, your brother-in-law is here too,” Yang Meirong looked at her son and lectured him.
“It’s fine, Auntie. I’ve gotten used to it. Zhixin loves his sister very much,” Qin Chu rarely got to witness such a heart-warming scene.
Over the meal, the green vegetables were running out, so Huo Mian stood up to wash some more
Zhixin also quietly followed behind her
“Sis I want to ask you something.”
“Are you pregnant yet?”
Huo Mian, “”
She wasn’t even worried about this, yet Zhixin seemed to be in more of a rush than she was
“Why do you keep asking me that?” Puzzled, Huo Mian looked at Zhixin.
“Ha I’m asking for Mom. She keeps asking me, but how would I know? Only the people involved knows.”
“Don’t worry, I will definitely tell you guys if there’s something.”
“Ok, haha, I’ve been hoping to become a young uncle.” Zhixin stuck out his tongue.
“A young uncle? You’re already 19”
“But I’m still a child”
“Ahem come here, let me ask you something.” Now it was Huo Mian’s turn to ask the questions.
“Have you and Yue done it yet?” Huo Mian asked, a little embarrassed.
However Zhixin immediately understood what his sister was talking about
He immediately responded, “Sis, which era do you think we’re living in? Do you really think everyone is as innocent and pure as you are? Love isn’t as simple as just holding hands. Of course we’ve been together, and we’re planning to move in together once I start my internship in my senior year.”
“Then you have to be careful, don’t get Yue pregnant. You guys are still young, there’s going to be a lot of pressure if you guys decide to have a baby. If you don’t want the baby, abortions are really harmful to the woman’s body.”
“I know Sis, we’re using protection, don’t you worry.”
Jing Zhixin patted his sister’s shoulder as he said confidently.
Huo Mian was speechless Her brother was only 19, yet he sounded so mature and experienced.
Was she too innocent, or did she think Zhixin was too innocent?
After dinner, Huang Yue was cleaning up the yard while Qin Chu and Zhixin sat in the yard and drank tea.
Huo Mian went into the kitchen to help her mother wash dishes
“Mom just ask me directly next time if you have questions. Don’t call Zhixin, he’s a guy. It’s super awkward if you keep asking him whether I’m pregnant yet, haha.” Huo Mian coyly laughed.
“You shouldn’t be as careless as I am. Since you were lucky enough to marry into a wealthy family, you should carefully plan the rest of your life out. Children are a must, it doesn’t matter if it’s a girl or a boy, but you have to have at least one.”
“I know, and it’s not that I don’t want one, but I’m just not pregnant yet,” Huo Mian said innocently.
“You’re too weak. Go see a reliable traditional Chinese medicine doctor to give you a checkup. Could it be that your body is lacking something? You should take some traditional Chinese medicine to help with that.”
Huo Mian didn’t know how to respond, “Mom I’m a medical practitioner, and I know of these things. Me not being pregnant might not be because I’m sick. The truth is, pregnancy is a very magical thing, and the joining of a sperm and egg isn’t as easy as we think. It’s a very complicated process Never mind, you won’t understand it anyways.”
Huo Mian originally wanted to carefully explain the process of impregnation to her mother, but after some medical lingo, her mother lost interest, so she decided to stop trying to explain things.
Then she took out a envelope from her bag and handed it to her, “Mom, take this.”
“Why are you giving me money again? I don’t need it.” Yang Meirong wouldn’t accept it.
