Huo Yunshen sat down on the couch and said, “Mum, Jing Xi and I are now legally a married couple. We came back to tell you this, and we’ll begin our preparations for our wedding.”
“What did you just say? Legally married? Why didn’t you discuss it with us first? Aren’t you taking things too lightly?”
“Mum, I’ve already told you this before, I’ll only marry Jing Xi. It’ll happen sooner or later,” Huo Yunshen said as he grabbed Xu Xiyan’s arm.
The reason he came back to announce their marriage was to get the approval from his parents.
Marriage in a Chinese family does not only involve the two people who will get married but the whole family too. It is a Chinese tradition that if the elders did not approve of the marriage, then the marriage would not be a complete one.
“Absurd! This is way too absurd! The Huo family is one of the wealthiest families in all of Peijing. There are many procedures to get married! Are you going to make me and your dad lose our pride with your flash-marriage? Do you want to stain the Huo family name?”
“I don’t care about fame, all I want is Jing Xi!” Huo Yunshen said. “If the one I’m marrying is not Jing Xi, then I would rather become a monk.”
Chen Yunlu was extremely angered but what her son had just said.
“If you do not agree of us, then I will take Jing Xi and Ying Bao away from Peijing. You can not blame me for not respecting you when it comes to that!”
That was Huo Yunshen’s wild card.
Xu Xiyan remained quiet in her seat, but when she heard Huo Yunshen telling her mother things like “all I want is Jing Xi” and “I would rather become a monk,” it touched her deeply.
It was a good fortune allotted by destiny that she could marry him.
As long as Huo Yunshen would stand by her side, any hardship would be worth it.
“What the hell is wrong with you?” Chen Yunlu scolded, believing that it was Xu Xiyan who had turned her son into another person. There was no way that Huo Yunshen would say something like this in the past.
Chen Yunlu stared at Xu Xiyan and shouted, “What good does she have? Her mum wasn’t any good when she was young, and her daughter did not fall far from the tree! Not only is she not likable, but her name is also bad too! There’s no way I would accept someone like her into our family!”
“Mrs. Huo! Don’t you dare bring my mother into this!” Xu Xiyan scolded. “You hated her just because my mum was your husband’s first love! You can’t even let it ago now, when she’s been gone for such a long time! You hate me because you hated her, and that is why you wouldn’t agree with us being together! The only words I can give you is that you’re too selfish!”
Xu Xiyan had been wanting to take revenge on Chen Yunlu for making her life worse by lying about her and Huo Yunshen being half-siblings.
If Xu Xiyan had not refuted, Chen Yunlu would’ve thought that she was someone that could be bullied.
