Marry First, Love Next - Falling in love with you - Chapter 3
Chapter 3 : Sold just like that!
When Miao Xingyao staggered back to the counter, Su Hanyu grabbed Miao’s shoulders and asked, “What happened? What did you talk about?”
Miao Xingyao hugged Su Hanyu at once and said, “I…promised to marry the senior.”
“What!” Su Hanyu lost her tone, “Marry?”
Miao Xingyao immediately separated herself from Su Hanyu and shushed her with her hand over her mouth, “Keep your voice down. You are still running the shop.”
“I’m shocked by you.” Su Hanyu lightly patted Miao Xingyao and asked, “What’s the situation? Give me a clear explanation.”
“The senior wanted to find someone to marry in order to cope with his family and said I was just right.” Miao Xingyao explained.
“Then why did you say yes? That’s too…strange? Why did you sell yourself like that without thinking about it?” Su Hanyu felt a little speechless. In her impression, Yu Jingxuan didn’t seem like someone who would do something so outrageous.
“Yes ah, why did I sell myself like that.” Miao Xingyao buried her face in her hands and blamed herself, “I didn’t know either. I just agreed to it at that time because my head was feverish.”
Su Hanyu hugged Miao Xingyao and said, “You said you didn’t like senior.”
“I don’t like ah!” Miao Xingyao denied, and after some thought added, “No, no, I like him. Not that kind of like, but simply longing.”
“That’s not longing. That’s blind worship.” Su Hanyu said unpleasantly.
“I just think that if senior has to find someone to marry, it should be me. I don’t want it to be anyone else.” Miao Xingyao’s voice was getting smaller and smaller.
Su Hanyu smiled. She did not want to talk about Miao Xingyao anymore. She and Miao Xingyao had known each other for so long. How could she not know what Miao Xingyao was thinking?
After being hurt by that man, Miao Xingyao was able to get over it quickly because she met Yu Jingxuan. She was a bit of an evader. Her eyes only followed Yu Jingxuan all day long. Su Hanyu saw it in her eyes and felt pain in her heart. However, Miao was not willing to reveal her scars, and Su Hanyu could not say anything about it.
Later, Miao Xingyao suddenly became a different person. She stopped following Yu Jingxuan and started to study hard. But Su Hanyu knew that Miao Xingyao wanted to get closer to the height of Yu Jingxuan. After all, the people standing beside Yu Jingxuan were different from ordinary people like them.
Later on, Ning Ruoxin suddenly left the country and broke up with Yu Jingxuan. That day when Miao Xingyao found out, she cried a lot and Su Hanyu understood that she had seen her own shadow. It was also after that day that Miao Xingyao really stepped out of the box.
She wrote to Yu Jingxuan because she thought that it was an unintentional act by Yu Jingxuan, but it gave her strength. Therefore, she also wanted to cheer Yu Jingxuan up and wrote to him. After Yu Jingxuan graduated, of course, Miao Xingyao also wanted to know where Yu Jingxuan was going, but she never asked him anything.
“Do you think I’m stupid?” Miao Xingyao suddenly asked.
Su Hanyu laughed, “Yes, stupid to the core. But since he is the senior you long for, he probably won’t hurt you.” Su Hanyu actually did not understand Yu Jingxuan. However, her heart ached for Miao Xingyao. These words were perhaps said to herself to believe that Miao Xingyao would achieve happiness.
“Hmm.” Miao Xingyao nodded. She had been following Yu Jingxuan for over a year, she knew him well, and she believed that people’s nature would not change that easily.
It was still table 15, and it had been more than two weeks since they last met, and Yu Jingxuan hadn’t contacted Miao Xingyao.
Miao Xingyao thought that Yu Jingxuan was joking?
“I’m sorry, I had to go on a business trip suddenly, and I’ve been too busy to contact you since I got back.” Yu Jingxuan apologized.
“It’s okay. It’s not like you wanted to.” Miao Xingyao laughed.
“Is today okay? I should have told you that I wanted to do the formalities as soon as possible, and I am only free today.” Yu Jingxuan said apologetically.
“Today?” Miao Xingyao was a little surprised and took out her phone and said, “Then I might have to take two hours off.”
Yu Jingxuan said, “Take an afternoon off. You still have to move.”
Miao Xingyao paused and said, “Then I’ll take an afternoon off.” It was also true that if they got married they would have to move in together. Fortunately, she didn’t have a lot of things, she was living in a rented house now. It would be good to pack some clothes, books and necessities.
Yu Jingxuan said, “I’m sorry, I may have to travel again in the near future. I won’t be free until after this busy period, then we’ll go back to our hometown and meet both of our parents.”
“Oh, okay.” Miao Xingyao nodded. By the way, they were getting married just to deal with the family, so they definitely had to go back.
Wait, Miao Xingyao thought of something and immediately said, “You also have to meet my parents?”
“Of course.” Yu Jingxuan said, “Putting their daughter in my hands definitely has to reassure your parents.”
“No, no.” Miao Xingyao shook her head and said firmly, “The matter of our flash marriage must never be known to my parents. They will kill me.”
“That…can’t be helped,” Yu Jingxuan said with difficulty.
Miao Xingyao thought about it and said, “Just say that you are my boyfriend and say that we are dating with the premise of getting married. They definitely can’t know about our marriage.”
“Okay.” Yu Jingxuan agreed.
“Then how did you ask for your family’s account book?” Yu Jingxuan suddenly thought of this and asked. He told Miao Xingyao to prepare the appropriate documents after their last meeting.
“Hehe, I changed my ID card before, so the household registration book is still here with me.” Miao Xingyao said quirkly.
“Oh.” Yu Jingxuan responded it turned out that Miao Xingyao had no intention of telling her family about the marriage. Yu Jingxuan looked at his watch and said, “Let’s go then.”
“Ah, I left my account book at home. I still have to go back to get it.” Miao Xingyao suddenly remembered.
Yu Jingxuan glanced at his watch again, stood up and said, “Then let’s go to your house to collect your things first.”
“Ah yes.” Miao Xingyao agreed and also stood up, and Yu Jingxuan was gentlemanly enough to pay for the coffee.
While paying, Su Hanyu said, “Senior, you have to take good care of Miao Xingyao, or I won’t let you go.”
“I will.” Yu Jingxuan took out his wallet and asked, “How much is it?”
“No need, I’ll treat you guys. Consider it a contribution for your expenses.” Su Hanyu said bashfully.
“Hanyu you…” Miao Xingyao shook her head helplessly.
Su Hanyu laughed, “Just kidding, just kidding.”
“The money still needs to be returned.” Yu Jingxuan said, pulling out a brand new one hundred yuan.
Su Hanyu took the money and looked for the cash register and said helplessly, “It’s all mobile phone payments now. I don’t have extra change and can’t find it. Or else I’ll transfer the money to Yao Yao?”
“Then transfer it to Miss Miao.” Yu Jingxuan said.
“No, no, if you don’t have the money, I’ll just pay it.” Miao Xingyao took the hundred from Su Hanyu’s hand and shoved it back into Yu Jingxuan’s hand, then paid for them.
Yu Jingxuan was a bit embarrassed to take the money. How could he let a lady pay?
