Chapter 83: Dad, Mom, Are You All Willing To Hand Yize To Me?
Although Su Jian asked An Yize to not come too often, An Yize didn’t listen to him at all and came every weekend as usual. Though Su Jian was still worried, he stopped talking about it after mentioning it once. The reason for that was that he started thinking about An Yize more.
When they were not together, they called each other practically every night. Although nothing much happened in their everyday lives, for some reason, they could always talk for a very long time. Sometimes, Su Jian, who called An Yize from inside the blankets, fell asleep while holding the phone. As for An Yize, when he heard the soft breathing sound of Su Jian, he said “Jian Jian, goodnight” with a smile before hanging up.
In a blink of an eye, a few months passed by. If it was in the past, Su Jian might feel that such a life without any form of entertainment would be dull. But now, Su Jian felt that every day seemed to have become interesting.
However, recently, Su Jian seemed unable to feel happy. He didn’t feel well and he felt a little giddy. He was also lacking in energy. Therefore, when An Yize called at night, what he heard was Su Jian’s feeble voice.
“What’s wrong Jian Jian?”
“Nothing. I haven’t been feeling well for the past two days. I’m not sure if I’ve gotten a cold.”
“I’ll come tomorrow.”
“What? Isn’t it only thursday tomorrow?”
“I’m worried since you’re sick.”
“It’s nothing serious, I can get the medicine myself. The weather forecast said that it will might rain tomorrow. Don’t come over.”
“It’s okay. Wait for my call tomorrow.”
Although Su Jian wasn’t so willing to let An Yize come under the rain, he couldn’t help feeling happy knowing that An Yize is coming over. When he laid on the bed at night, he was already thinking of the grocery list for tomorrow.
On the next day however, he didn’t receive An Yize’s call but instead An Yirou’s.
“Third sister-in-law, quickly come back!”
An Yirou spoke vaguely over the phone and didn’t made clear what was going on. However, Su Jian could tell that the matter wasn’t small. Far from good and most importantly, it had to do with An Yize.
Sitting in the long-distance bus, various possibilities kept flashing by Su Jian’s head.
An Yize met an accident? No, definitely not!
Then, did An Yize’s company go bankrupt? Alright, this possibility is too low.
Then, maybe an adultery? Tch, this…
Su Jian kept guessing throughout his journey and rushed back home with his mind full of doubts.
He had just stepped into the house when he heard father An’s strict voice. “I’ve already checked. You and Xiao Jian had married after knowing each other for only a few days and hadn’t interacted before. Also, your mom found a printed copy of the divorce agreement form in your room. There’s a rumor saying that your marriage is fake, that you were only acting affectionate to each other. Tell me, is this true?”
Su Jian’s movement stopped and his eyes widened. Shit! Our fake marriage was discovered?
Indeed, it was a serious situation! Su Jian didn’t have the mood to think about how father An and mother An found out. He stared straight at An Yize.
With Su Jian’s shout, everyone turned around to look at him.
Seeing Su Jian, An Yize knitted his eyebrows. “Jian Jian? Why are you back? Didn’t you say that you weren’t feeling well?”
Looking at him, Su Jian nodded his head before turning back to face the rest of the An family.
“Third sister-in-law.” An Yirou looked at him perplexedly and softly greeted him. As for mother An, she glared at him, feeling as perplexed.
“Dad, mom, Xiao Rou.” Su Jian stood beside An Yize and quietly touched his hands. An Yize turned his hand around and held Su Jian’s hand in his palm.
Noticing this, father An’s eyes moved slightly. He looked at Su Jian with slightly gentler but still strict gaze. “Xiao Jian. Good that you’re back. You’ve heard what I said earlier. There’s a rumor saying that you and Xiao Ze are not a true couple and are only acting temporarily as one. Is that true?”
“No.” This time, it was An Yize who answered.
Father An’s eyes were deep. However, he looked towards Su Jian instead and slowly said, “If you guys really had a deal, it’s still not to late now. Xiao Ze has wronged you with his absurd actions, the An family will compensate you. Or else, I’m afraid the two of you can’t divorce whenever you like anymore.” Father An paused for a moment before continuing, “Xiao Jian, you should think carefully.”
Su Jian fell silence and didn’t talk, looking like he was making a difficult decision in his heart.
On the other hand, An Yize who had been looking calm all this time started getting anxious.
Although he felt that they had been interacting harmoniously and mutually liked each other for quite a while, he didn’t forget that Su Jian always thought about divorce. And now……
The expression of the whole An family changed.
An Yize’s whole body jolted. He looked at Su Jian in disbelief, hurt filling his quiet eyes.
It seemed like he had overestimated and wished for too much after all……
“However, I want nothing else.” Su Jian looked at An Yize, gently swaying An Yize’s hand which was holding his. “Dad, Mom, can you give him to me?”
An Yize stiffened and his eyes which were looking at Su Jian brightened instantly.
Father An’s expression became much gentler, mother An humphed and An Yirou smiled happily.
Su Jian looked towards father An with a serious expression. “Although my qualification is average, I promise I will do my best to support him, protect him and love him. As of now, it’s sounds kind of fake saying that I would do it forever. However, that is my goal and I will work hard towards it.”
An Yize: “……”
“Although I may not be good enough, I have a sincere heart.” Su Jian’s eyes looked genuine and had a seriousness they didn’t have before. “Dad, Mom, are you all willing to hand Yize to me?”
Mother An felt like something was wrong somewhere, but wasn’t able to figure out what it was. An Yirou smiled and her eyes were grinning. Raising An Yize’s other hand, she placed it in Su Jian’s hands.
Father An lightly coughed and looked at the two before him.
He had never seen such a serious and responsible Su Jian before. However, he could tell that the gentle and loving look An Yize gave to Su Jian wasn’t fake. This youngest son of his was different from his other two sons. He never liked to lie ever since young. When they made mistakes when they were young, his other two son would always try their best to hide it. However, his youngest son would always admit to them honestly. And right now, looking at the way his son was looking at the woman beside him with happiness and satisfaction in his eyes, he knew it wasn’t fake.
Su Jian looked towards An Yize, saying, “Yize, I know I’m not good enough. Are you sure you want to be with me? There’s still a chance for you to not regret now. If you miss it, there won’t be another one.”
An Yize didn’t answer him. Instead, he looked at Su Jian deeply and asked, “Jian Jian, are you sure that what you said is all true?”
These were words only the two of them would understand. Su Jian knew that if he gives a confirmation now, he would probably be with An Yize for the rest of his life.
Su Jian gazed at An Yize and asked himself: Are you sure you want to agree? Are you sure it will be this person?
Su Jian didn’t say anything.
An Yize’s eyes gradually darken. Thinking that what Su Jian said earlier may just be an act like what they did previously, his heart couldn’t help but felt hurt.
Su Jian tried his best to bear with it but he ultimately couldn’t. Shaking An Yize’s hands off, he ran to the side, lowered his head and started vomiting.
Everyone was stunned. After An Yize’s shock, he rushed to Su Jian side with furrowed brows. “Where do you feel uncomfortable?”
Su Jian vomited, yet nothing came out. Quietly lifting his head, he said without energy, “I think I ate something wrong, I have been feeling uncomfortable.”
Hearing that, the eyes of mother An, who was by the side, suddenly brightened. Walking over quickly, she pulled Su Jian up and studied him.
Su Jian blinked his eyes and asked in confusion, “Mom?”
Mother An asked him immodestly, “How long has it been since your last period?”
Su Jian: “……” Must you ask such a direct question in front of everybody?! Not to mention, I don’t even remember my own period. When big aunt doesn’t visit me, I wouldn’t bother remembering this kind of thing. How would I be able to remember when it last came!
An Yize who was by the side immediately understood the meaning behind mother An’s question. An expression of unbelievable surprise appeared on his face.
An Yirou asked mother An happily, “Is third sister-in-law pregnant?”
Su Jian: “……”
