Married to a Disabled Man in the 70s - Chapter 134
Su Jiaojiao pursed her lips and smiled, her face unchanging as she nodded and called the middle-aged woman Auntie again, before glancing unobtrusively at the young man who had pulled out the chair for her.
She had to take back her comment.
She thought she was a good match for this handsome man!
The youth seemed to be interested in her too, and after sitting down, he asked, “Do you prefer black or green tea?”
Su Jiaojiao wasn’t interested in tea, so she said calmly, “You choose. I’m fine with either.”
The youth nodded and said, “I like the green tea here. Do you want a cup too? They also make some dim sum here, so how about we order some matcha-flavoured dim sum? It’s very popular with the young ladies that frequent here.”
Su Jiaojiao thought that was a bit odd of him, as if he wasn’t a young man, but his looks matched her aesthetic, and until he struck a lightning bolt, everything was fine, and Su Jiaojiao nodded with a smile, “Sure.”
The youth turned to Su Jiaojiao’s mother, “Aunty, what would you like?”
Su Jiaojiao’s mother and Auntie Zhou had been watching the two, and they naturally noticed that they were looking at each other and were snickering. When Song Qinghan asked her a question, Su Jiaojiao’s mother immediately shook her head and said with a smile, “We won’t be drinking anything. Speaking of, I’ve said before that I need to buy a pair of sandals. I start to get blisters after walking for a long time in these shoes. Ah Zhou, will you come with me?”
“Sure. I need to buy something too.” Auntie Zhou nodded and said to the two members of the younger generation, “Qinghan, you can take Su Jiaojiao to see a movie or something. I heard that a light-hearted comedy has recently come on air, it’s really good and critics have all praised it.”
As she was saying this, she still felt a bit uneasy. Her nephew had always had an unruly nature, treating women more coldly than men. She had never seen him act this obedient, and if not for the fact that he seemed to have cleaned up his act somewhat, she would have been embarrassed to introduce her old friend’s daughter to him.
Aunt Zhou thought her old friend’s daughter was a good match. They weren’t rich, but they weren’t poor either, while her parents were very reasonable. Plus, Su Jiaojiao was well behaved, and she had only heard good things about her from her other friends.
Song Qinghan nodded, “Got it, Aunt Zhou, Aunt Su, take care.”
Song Qinghan and Su Jiaojiao got up to see them off.
Aunt Zhou was afraid that the two would act unnatural around her and followed along, immediately taking Su Jiaojiao’s mother away and walking outside. Only then did she whisper, “He must have taken a liking to your daughter. This is great! We’ll become relatives soon.”
Su Jiaojiao’s mother also smiled and said, “My daughter also seems quite satisfied.”
In the private room, Song Qinghan chatted with her casually. The two of them ate snacks and drank tea, and after chatting for a while and getting to know each other a bit, Song Qinghan said, “Let’s add each other online?”
“Sure.” Su Jiaojiao smiled and nodded her head, taking out her phone and opening WeChat.
But she saw that Song Qinghan had opened Penguin?
She was a bit surprised. Most people preferred to use WeChat nowadays, but she was a Penguin user herself. This was because she was a shut-in and was extremely online, so she had more friends on Penguin. On the other hand, she rarely opened WeChat unless she wanted to contact her friends in real life.
Song Qinghan sensed her gaze and smiled, “I’m used to using Penguin.”
Su Jiaojiao blinked, “What a coincidence, I also use it more.”
Then, she gave him her number.
A few seconds later, Song Qinghan said with an odd expression, “I sent you a message.”
Puzzled, Su Jiaojiao looked down at her phone, only to see that the head of Crown House Films, whom she had contacted earlier, had sent her a message: [Hello?]
Su Jiaojiao said, “…… Such a coincidence.”
But after thinking about it, it made sense. His family ran a company in the entertainment industry, so it’s not a surprise that they had met before.
Song Qinghan curled his lips and said unexpectedly, “I didn’t think we had met before. I like you a lot.”
“……Thanks.” Su Jiaojiao nodded her head.
Song Qinghan then waited for her goodwill value to rise.
Who knew that he heard the matchmaker system notify him in his head: [Warning! Warning! Su Jiaojiao feels embarrassed that her secret has been exposed, now her goodwill level has decreased and her goodwill value …… is 40]
Song Qinghan was alarmed.
Her initial goodwill level towards him was 65 just now, how did it become 40?
What a blunder!
He smiled hard and tried to salvage it, “I bought movie tickets, let’s go watch a movie, ok?”
Su Jiaojiao hesitated for a moment. She felt like the merge of her online and real life was a little weird, and it wasn’t something for her to be happy about either. She didn’t want to stay any longer.
She was about to object, but then she saw Song Qinghan looking straight at her, his eyes making her want to pity him, and she was softened by his puppy-dog eyes so much that she subconsciously nodded her head.
Song Qinghan immediately gave a smile, “Then let’s go?”
Su Jiaojiao followed and stood up.
Armos D. Platypus: Towards the end of the story, it’s starting to become rushed again! Let’s go.
