The Legitimate Daughter Doesn’t Care! - Chapter 340
Mother Mu was undoubtedly happy. Seeing the two children relieve their previous quarrels and get to know each other, she burst into tears and began to say something, “Will Duoduo live with me in the future? If you don’t have time to work after college, I can also take care of your living expenses. Can we meet more often as a family?”
Xu Xinduo hesitated for a while in the face of such a question. Before she could give her a response, she saw mother Mu coming over to give her a hug— one that she quickly avoided.
“I…I did think about that, but can you give me some time…I’ll take my leave first,” After Xu Xinduo finished speaking, she picked up her jacket and walked outside quickly.
She looked a little embarrassed, which made mother Mu stunned.
Mu Qingyi was the one who reacted a lot quicker than the both of them. He got up and said, “Let me see you off.”
Xu Xinduo and Mu Qingyi also walked out side by side. Fearing that they might misunderstand, she still explained, “I’m not quite used to it, so let me… slow down and process things a bit?”
“For you, we are strangers. We haven’t gotten together for long, so expecting you to show us the deepest actions of love and familial affection would indeed be very awkward for you, so I understand.”
“Don’t worry, there are still many days to come, so let’s just take things slow.”
Not long after the two walked out, they saw Tong Yan actually waiting near De Yu’s car. He immediately greeted Xu Xinduo when he saw her coming.
Xu Xinduo asked in surprise, “Why are you here?”
“I was worried that you’d be bullied, so I came over to pick you up for my peace of mind.”
Initially, Mu Qingyi was also worried when he saw Xu Xinduo and Tong Yan together. However, when he saw that Tong Yan actually transferred to the Advanced Class for Xu Xinduo, he gradually felt that Tong Yan was sincere.
Seeing Tong Yan coming to pick her up, Mu Qingyi also felt relieved as he said, “Thank you for giving mom a chance, I will definitely take care of her.”
After Xu Xinduo left with Tong Yan, the two went to her apartment together.
On the way, Xu Xinduo told Tong Yan what happened when she went to mother Mu’s place. Even as they entered the house, she continued to speak, “I was so embarrassed that it felt like my pores were all opened. It was really difficult for me to get acquainted with them in a short period of time.”
Tong Yan nodded as he helped Xu Xinduo take off her coat and hung it at the door.
Xu Xinduo was still thinking about how to describe the situation to Tong Yan, “It’s just… I’ve been in your body before, so I knew what kind of person Wei Lan was and I got used to it. But if I didn’t know Wei Lan at all before, I wouldn’t have been able to accept this kind of person— suddenly coming over to call me ‘baby’, saying frivolous words, touching my head and tucking my hair. If I didn’t know better, I would have probably broken his skull at some point.”
“Mm, I understand.”
“I can try to accept them for now and I don’t mind cultivating a familial relationship with them. But seeing their sudden enthusiasm, their eagerness to hug me and the willingness to let me live with them, I ran away again. Am I… being difficult? Or am I being a bit hypocritical?”
“Take your time— if you want to give them a chance, you should just get used to it slowly. This kind of thing is mutual, so I’m sure they’ll understand. After living for seventeen years, if someone just came up to me and told me that she was my mother, hoping that I could live with her from now on, I would find it hard to accept as well.”
Xu Xinduo nodded as she agreed with Tong Yan’s statement. Still, she felt that if she left the matter like this, mother Mu might cry again. With that thought in mind, she started to feel troubled.
When she came back to her senses, she saw Tong Yan taking off his coat. Then, he walked into the kitchen and went to the refrigerator to get some juice.
Why did I go home with Tong Yan again?!
