The corners of Xiang Huai’s lips twitched. He then picked up the other slipper and placed it at Lin Jing’s feet. At nearly 1.9 meters tall, he squatted down. He was a cold and heartless person, but at this moment, he was gentle and helpless. “Mom, although the ground is warm, it isn’t clean, is it? You’re barefoot.”
Lin Jing kicked him and even rubbed the dust on his pants before putting on her slippers.
Seeing her small action, the corners of Xiang Huai’s lips twitched. His gaze landed on his calf, where he could see a spot of dirt.
Seemingly sensing his gaze, Lin Jing snorted. “Why? Only your Xixi is allowed to hit you, eh. I only hit you with my foot and you still scorn me?”
Xiang Huai: “I don’t mind it, but Mom, I’m planning to wear this pair of pants to Xixi’s house tomorrow. You’ve dirtied me…”
Lin Jing pouted. “Why? Do you only have one pair of pants?”
Xiang Huai: “That’s not it. It’s just that this is the only new custom-made one this year. Sigh, isn’t it because I don’t have money? So poor…”
Lin Jing: “!”
She snorted. “Don’t try to cheat me of my money! This is called fraud!”
Xiang Huai patted his pants and stood up. “Forget it. I can’t despise my own mother. However, I’m asking you for money not for my sake but for yours!”
Lin Jing: “?”
Xiang Huai slowly said, “Say, in Bin City, it’s known that I’m Xixi’s gigolo. If I go there for the New Year and have to foot the bill, I’ll have to ask Xixi for money. If word gets out, it’s fine for me to be a live-in son-in-law. It’s just that they might think that the Xiang family or the Lin family is so poor that they can’t even afford a betrothal gift, you know?”
Lin Jing: “????”
She was really furious. She glared at her son and took a deep breath. She took out a bank card from her pocket and threw it on the table. “Take it. I’ve already prepared it for you!”
Xiang Huai instantly put away his card. “Damn, Mom. If you had given it to me earlier, it wouldn’t have damaged our relationship.”
Lin Jing: “…F*ck you!”
Xiang Huai: “I told my mother-in-law that I’ll be back the day after tomorrow. I’ll drive there then. I can’t go there early today, lest my mother-in-law finds me annoying.”
As he said this, he looked behind him at Lin Jing. “Mom, what are you doing?”
Lin Jing snorted and started packing the gifts on the sofa behind her. As she rubbed her waist, she said, “I prepared them for you. Since you’re going to Bin City, and I heard that Xue Sheng was not very well-liked in Bin City previously, then this time, you should return home in glory. These are all gifts that I prepared. They can’t be bought in Bin City. For you, I put in a lot of effort. I shopped for an entire day! My waist hurts so much, and you still want to fight with me! Unfilial son!”
Xiang Huai hurriedly went forward and held Lin Jing’s arm. His eyes flickered with guilt.
Lin Jing was always like this. Although she looked fierce, she was actually more meticulous than anyone else.
Two days later, Xiang Huai drove the nanny van early in the morning to fetch the Xue family of five back to Bin City.
After he left, Lin Jing rubbed her shoulders and suddenly thought of something. She picked up her phone and dialed a number. “Hello, Old Xiang. Let’s go to Bin City this year! Coincidentally, we can also support our in-laws! Since your son’s identity can’t just be divulged, you can only do it yourself!”
The father who’s all sorts of busy: “?”
Before he could reply, Lin Jing became even fiercer. “What do you mean with your silence? You don’t want to?”
“Alright, it’s settled, then. I’ll arrange a car and we’ll set off in two days!”
At the same time, in Bin City.
In the Xue family’s old mansion, the housekeepers were busy unpacking.
Old Lady Xue’s face darkened as she sat on the sofa. The old patriarch, on the other hand, was glowing as he ordered, “My elder son likes Pu’er tea the most. You must prepare it for him, understand?”
Seeing the old patriarch’s expression, the old lady snorted. “You’re so solicitous. What’s the point with that heartless person? Isn’t that pretty boy the founder of the God of Fortune Group? Look at you being such a lackey! Hmph! Let me tell you, after our Yaoyao broke it off with the Fan boy and went to university, she got a boyfriend with a very strong background! As he’s only a businessman, that pretty boy is still inferior. Yaoyao’s boyfriend is amazing! Look, when Yaoyao heard that Xue Xi was going to bring her boyfriend back, she also decided to bring her boyfriend back!”
