After Matriarch Yu finished speaking, she reached out to massage her temples—it seemed that she was tired of all the talking.
She did not provide any opportunity for the uncles to speak. With a wave of her hand, the butler proceeded to send the guests away.
The matriarch was getting old.
However, she had once disciplined all the uncles present when they were young. As such, even though everyone had their own thoughts after she had spoken, all of them could only keep it to themselves for the time being.
All of them looked each other in the eyes and left the villa together.
After the butler gave out instructions to clean up the broken ceramic shards on the ground, he followed suit and retreated out of the living room.
The living room turned spacious and empty immediately.
Nian Xiaomu held Matriarch Yu’s hands tightly with red-rimmed eyes.
She wasn’t stupid—she totally understood Matriarch Yu’s intention.
Even though she wasn’t afraid of being misunderstood by others, nothing could replace the feeling of having the protection of her family members.
Matriarch Yu’s words were harsh when she forced everyone to acknowledge Nian Xiaomu’s status as the current matriarch of the household. She did this to request that everyone in the Yu Family protect Nian Xiaomu just like how Yu Yuehan did and to treat her as part of the family.
“Hey, your eyes are red—are you about to cry? You must be very touched, right?” As Matriarch Yu turned around, she withdrew her imposing posture and regained her image as an old imp.
As she stared at Nian Xiaomu’s red nose and eyes with a smiling face, she said in banter, “That group of disappointing fellows are used to leading a good life, so they can’t take any pestering. Grandma was simply scaring them just now, but I didn’t expect to have scared you!”
As Matriarch Yu pulled Nian Xiaomu in front to face her, she took a glance at Yu Yuehan, who stood behind her.
Her hearty eyes flickered as she patted the back of Nian Xiaomu’s hand.
She changed the topic and said, “If you really want to thank Grandma, why don’t the two of you give me a present?”
“… What do you want, Grandma?” Nian Xiaomu was still feeling touched and asked without any hesitation.
The next second, Matriarch Yu let out a bright smile.
“Grandma is getting old. I don’t need other things, I just like to play with my grandchildren. Xiao Liuliu is too lonely by herself!”
As Matriarch Yu said this, she touched and felt Nian Xiaomu’s belly with her hand.
Muttering to herself, she asked, “Why hasn’t there been any activity when they have already been together for so long? Yuehan is so useless…”
Yu Yuehan: “…!!”
Nian Xiaomu: “…!!”
The living room only quieted down fully after they took great pains to send Matriarch Yu away.
Even though Cheng Xiulu had meant to incite dischord with her words, part of what she had said was true.
The Yu Family had gained extensive attention on the internet because the news scoop that Xing Li had exposed pertained to them.
The existence of a fiancée who was a jinx had become Yu Yuehan’s only blemish.
Nian Xiaomu had even started to doubt herself and wondered if she was really a match for him…
“Nian Xiaomu, you should know that I will not accept any excuses if you forsake me after making use of me.”
Before her thoughts of undervaluing herself could take form, everything Yu Yuehan had said just now rang beside her ears again.
Nian Xiaomu immediately tossed away the messed up thoughts in her mind.
“Those uncles came here to create trouble after Cheng Xiulu’s sudden instigation, so how did Grandma receive the news and come over so quickly?” Nian Xiaomu seemed to have thought of something as she turned around and looked at Yu Yuehan, who stood behind her.
Why did she feel that he had prearranged everything?
Yu Yuehan raised his eyebrows and walked to her side.
He hugged her, and both of them sat on the sofa together.
He did not answer her question.
Instead, he was concerned about another problem and said, “Nian Xiaomu, Grandma scolded me for being useless just now.”
Nian Xiaomu: “???”
Yu Yuehan continued, “I feel that I need to prove myself.”
Nian Xiaomu: “…!!”
