His Wife Calls The Shots - Chapter 39
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
It was a scene of an eight-or-nine-year-old kid, with a toy sword in one hand, and his other arm was wound tightly around Feng Xian’s thigh. Like an octopus, he couldn’t be shaken off.
Feng Xian stood frozen on-the-spot, looking down at the child with a threatening expression on his face.
However, the little rascal was unafraid and even went as far as to trap the man’s legs between his own. The child said, “I don’t care. If you’re not going to have a duel with me today, I won’t allow you to date my sister.”
Narrowing his eyes, Feng Xian said in an icy tone, “Whoever said I wanted to date your sister?”
“Your mother said it. You moved my sister into your apartment. I can see right through it, you’re using that as your strategy to get close to her!”
Feng Xian shut his eyes, obviously trying his best to be patient.
Kids. They were the most troublesome.
He then shot Old Yu a look and said, “Aren’t you going to give me a hand?”
On the side, Old Yu was trying to hide his amusement. He had never seen his calm and aloof Young Master looking this helpless. He finally laughed aloud before he quickly came forward to pull the kid away.
Alas, Tang Qianheng waved his toy sword a few times, aiming it backward. The boy cried, “Don’t come any nearer!”
Old Yu halted and said, “Young Master, you can see it yourself, there’s nothing I can do.”
Furrowing his brows, Feng Xian looked down at this child who resembled Tang Qianmiao. He said, “Let go. I’m not dating your sister.”
Tang Qianheng immediately quipped, “Well then, why are you living with her?”
The man replied, “Go and ask her yourself.”
“Are you saying my sister likes you?”
The boy was very quick to join the dots. Feng Xian, however, had no interest in discussing such things with the child. It was immature and a waste of his time.
“My sister likes you? Why? Apart from being good-looking, I don’t see anything in you that’s worth her liking.”
The man was stumped.
Old Yu covered his mouth and started to laugh. When he looked up, he spotted Tang Qianmiao almost immediately.
“Miss Tang is home.”
Feng Xian lifted his gaze and looked towards the left when he heard this. He saw Tang Qianmiao walking towards them. She did not speak.
When Tang Qianheng saw her, he let go of Feng Xian and ran towards her.
“Big Sister! Where have you been? Your classes ended long ago.”
Tang Qianmiao did not reply.
“Big Sister, do you like him?”
The girl raised her eyebrow slightly and looked in Feng Xian’s direction. Then, she looked away.
“No, I don’t.”
It was very direct.
As she said this, she was already walking towards the house. Feng Xian stood where he was, his expression quiet and calm.
Ahem. Old Yu cleared his throat. “Young Master, it looks like you were mistaken.”
The young man only nonchalantly, “Girls never say what they mean.”
The elderly man agreed, “… Uh huh… that’s true…”
Feng Xian was a man who never doubted his own judgment. That was true in his business dealings, and it was the same in other areas of his life.
Given Tang Qianheng’s presence, dinner was especially lively.
Right after dinner, Tang Qianmiao sent him home.
The boy pestered her, “Big Sister, let me live here too. I don’t want to go home to be with the other two. They’re such hypocrites. They appear to treat me well, but behind my back, they instructed the servants at home to use expired pork to boil me soup. They even carry tales about me to Dad.”
Before he said all this, Tang Qianmiao had been expressionless. But now, upon hearing what he said, she started to react.
“Are you telling the truth?”
“I am. I even heard them saying that after the new baby boy arrives, I’ll no longer have any status at home. They were whispering it all in secret.”
Tang Qianmiao halted.
The little boy looked at her in anticipation.
However, she then answered, “In this world, the weak will always be food for the more powerful. If you don’t want others to be stepping all over you, you’ll have to work hard to become one of the powerful ones.”
