Chapter 3: Uncle and Auntie? Call Us Mom and Dad
Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
The happiest people at the scene were the Jiang family members. They were originally worried that the Qin family would climb up to such a high position because of the Xu family. Who would have thought that they would pick up such a good daughter-in-law? The Qin family members were completely disgraced. They could only vent their emotions like a shrew cursing the streets.
After the wedding, Xu Anran and Jiang Rongyan went backstage. There was no one else around. Xu Anran directly let go of Jiang Rongyan’s arm and walked straight to the dressing table. Looking at her delicate skin in the mirror, she subconsciously raised her hand to caress her face. It was only at this moment that she truly believed that she had been reborn!
Everything that had happened earlier was not a dream. When Xu Anran came back to her senses, she saw through the reflection of the mirror that Jiang Rongyan was staring at her with interest. Xu Anran stood up and walked in front of Jiang Rongyan. She lifted her chin slightly and said sincerely, “Thank you for your generosity, Mr. Jiang.”
Jiang Rongyan raised his eyebrows and said, “No need to thank me. Maximizing profits is a basic way of thinking as a businessman.”
Seeing this, Xu Anran’s red lips curled up and the smile on her face widened. “Then, are you interested in expanding your profits?”
Without waiting for Jiang Rongyan to speak, Xu Anran continued speaking, “I know that Mr. Jiang isn’t interested in me. Similarly, I’m also not interested in men. Since that’s the case, why don’t we work together for a little longer and be a superficial couple? Anyway, our goal is the same. We get married and come to an agreement. We can get rid of the urging of our respective families to get married and have our own freedom. Why not?”
The smile in Jiang Rongyan’s eyes grew wider. The woman in front of him seemed to be more interesting than he had imagined. “Miss Xu’s suggestion is very difficult to reject.” After a pause, Jiang Rongyan spoke again. “I’ll pick you up from the Xu family tomorrow afternoon. Prepare the household register.”
After hearing Jiang Rongyan’s reply, Xu Anran heaved a sigh of relief. She stuck her hand out and said, “In that case, let’s have a happy collaboration, Mr. Jiang.”
“It’s a pleasure to work with you.” The two of them talked about the wedding as if they were discussing a collaboration project.
After the event, Jiang Rongyan looked at Xu Anran and asked, “Do you need me to send you home?”
“There’s no need. I’ll drive myself home.” Xu Anran did not say anything else.
Jiang Rongyan smiled indifferently and nodded. It was an agreement to get married anyway. It was better to be a little polite so that unnecessary feelings would not arise and be responsible for it. Xu Anran saw that his attitude was as distant as hers, so she let out a sigh of relief. She planned to drive home, but in the next second, she froze on the spot because the Jiang family’s parents had appeared behind them at some point in time.
“An’an!” Mother Jiang, Li Yingrong, was beaming with joy. With one look, even passersby knew that there was a happy event at home. When she saw her, she pulled her hand and looked very affectionate. It seemed that she was very satisfied with her daughter-in-law.
Xu Anran was obviously frightened. Other than her grandfather, she had never been called that. Looking at the dignified and luxurious middle-aged woman in front of her, her skin was well-maintained. Her almond-shaped eyes were bright and clear. Xu Anran thought to herself, ‘It seems that this woman is usually well-protected by her family.’
“An’an, I’m Rongyan’s mother! The one behind is Rongyan’s father.” Li Yingrong excitedly grabbed Xu Anran’s hand and pointed to the back. Jiang Tao was slowly walking towards them and was not in a hurry to speak.
As expected of a man who had been in the business world. When faced with his son’s wife who appeared out of thin air, he was not overly surprised. He silently weighed the interests of the two families in his heart. He did not agree or refuse. On the other hand, his wife was extremely happy at the side and did not hide anything. Xu Anran looked at the two of them and understood why Jiang Rongyan was so good-looking. It turned out that his parents had good genes.
“Hello, Uncle. Hello, Auntie. My name is Xu Anran,” Xu Anran greeted awkwardly.
She didn’t expect Li Yingrong to wave her hand casually and say with a smile, “You child, why are you calling us Uncle and Auntie? You have to call us Mom and Dad!”
Xu Anran: “….” Isn’t this too sudden?
