“Pfft! You’re just greedy for his money! You’re such a slut!”
Chen Siwen: “…” (speechless)
After a moment of silence, Chen Siwen turned around and started rummaging through the stuff in her room.
Chen Yu asked, “What are you looking for?”
Chen Siwen replied, “I’m looking for a knife.”
Chen Yu said, “In the kitchen.”
Chen Siwen replied, “Thanks.”
“Crap! You’re really going to get it.” Chen Yu hurriedly put his arms around Chen Siwen and very lovingly caressed her hair like a cat owner would his cat.
“Get lost. Go to school. My business is none of your concern.”
“You be honest and tell the truth!” Letting go of her, Chen Yu said with due seriousness, “Are you just going to settle with being a sister willing to do anything for your baby brother no matter the cost all your life?”
“Don’t flatter yourself. I’m finding a rich man so I can live a comfortable life in the future.”
“No matter how rich you get, will you be comfortable living with someone you don’t like?”
“How can you be sure that I don’t like him?”
“Isn’t that the reason why you like me?”
“First, let me go get a knife from the kitchen, and we’ll talk when I get back.”
“Don’t. You should hear me out first.” Chen Yu paused for a moment to organize his thoughts and find the right words to say. Then he said, “You’re my sister. I know you want to help me. But the help that you give me can’t be at the expense of your own life. That’ll give me a sense of guilt. You can’t be so ‘selfish.\'”
When Chen Siwen heard this, her gaze strayed, and she seemed to become somewhat lost in thought.
“Everyone has their own life. I’ve never felt that I was inferior to anyone else before. No number of Qi-Boosting Elixirs can beat the warmth I’d feel if you were to tell me simply ‘I believe you.\'”
Chen Siwen still maintained her silence.
“So I’m asking you very seriously, and you’d better answer me just as seriously. Do you like that beardy? If you do like him, then from the bottom of my heart, I will definitely give my blessing and wish the best for you. But if you don’t like him, I’ll get him to scram.”
“Yu, you’re still a student. There are many things you don’t understand. In this society, life is really too tough for ordinary people. Certain tacit ‘exchanges’ are far more important than so-called feelings. There aren’t many days left before the college entrance examination. You need money. Our family needs money. I…also need it.”
“Okay, I’m starting to understand now.” Chen Yu breathed a sigh of relief and said, “Money is worth nothing at all. In the future, I can earn as much as I want to earn. Since you don’t like him, I’ll turn him down for you.”
With that said, he left the bedroom and walked toward the bearded man.
Chen Siwen was momentarily stunned, but she hurriedly caught up to him and said, “Chen Yu! What are you doing?”
“Brother-in-law!” Chen Yu paid no heed to the pulling and tugging behind him and bowed directly to the bearded man, saying, “I was wrong. Please forgive me for being so insensible earlier on.”
Chen Siwen: “…” (speechless)
The bearded man: “…” (speechless)
“Just now, I had a talk with my sister, and she said many good things about you, which has really taught me what it means to not judge a book by its cover. I have thus decided to consent to the marriage between the two of you.”
Chen Siwen: “…” (speechless)
The bearded man was also baffled for a quite some time. Then, he hurriedly got to his feet and said, “Don’t stand on ceremony. What is there to apologize for? In the near future, we will all be one family.”
“Yes, yes, yes. One family.” Chen Yu smiled and nodded. Then he looked at Mrs. Chen and asked, “Mother, you do agree too, right?”
Mrs. Chen replied, “I…”
Chen Yu interrupted and said, “My mother agrees as well. For matters concerning our family, I have the final say. So let’s discuss the details of the engagement day. Shall parents of both sides meet?”
“Err… That will do. I can make arrangements with your sister regarding this later.”
“Well then, I won’t get further involved in this. Anyway, if there’s an engagement party, you have to make sure I’m invited. I still have lessons over at school, so I’ll go first.” Chen Yu pretended to look as though he was going to leave.
The bearded uncle immediately offered to drive him there very politely. “Can I give you a lift to school?”
Chen Yu replied, “Of course.”
The bearded uncle: “…” (speechless)
Chen Yu said, “So what are you still waiting for? I haven’t sat in a BMW before.”
“Then… then let’s go. I’ll take you to school.” The bearded man rubbed his hands awkwardly, took out his car keys, and was forced to go downstairs with Chen Yu.
“Sister, I’ll go first, then.” Before closing the door, Chen Yu winked at Chen Siwen.
Chen Siwen replied, “Gag, what a glib tongue you have!”
Following the sound of the door closing, Chen Yu and the bearded man left.
Mrs. Chen hadn’t even reacted to the entire situation until now. “This… How are we going to deal with this matter?” she exclaimed. “Are you really going to get engaged?”
“With him getting involved, it would be a miracle if I can really get engaged!” Chen Siwen covered her head with her hands.
Downstairs, after sitting himself in the bearded man’s exquisite BMW sedan, Chen Yu felt and touched around as if he were a frog who had come out of its well and was seeing the outside world for the first time in its life.
“High-end! Tsk-tsk, upscale…”
“Like it?” the bearded man asked with a smile as he put on his seat belt.
“Then after your sister and I get married, I’ll buy one for you as a gift.”
“Then our relationship is going to improve by leaps and bounds.” Without any change in his expression, Chen Yu sniffed, his nostrils twitching subtly. Then he sneered.
Thanks to the half-month “radiation cultivation” in the Foreign Realm, his sense of smell far exceeded that of normal people.
The car had been cleaned before, but even so, before he entered, he could still detect the complex smell of a certain perfume.
Poor quality, mild, expensive…
Obviously, this car had been visited by many other young ladies.
Chen Yu curled his lips in disdain.
Rich people’s lives…were really good.
He would like to…
“Yu, which middle school are you studying at?” The bearded man was still wearing an earnest expression on his face. He was completely oblivious to Chen Yu’s unspoken bellyaching.
“Brother-in-law, why don’t I drive instead?”
“You know how to drive?”
“Who doesn’t know how to drive?!”
“All right then, you drive.”
The two exchanged seats, and Chen Yu put on his seat belt before saying, “If I must say, when it comes to driving, I’m the best—be it in QQ, WeChat, Tieba, online discussion forums, WeiBo. Wherever I’ve been, you’re bound to find traces of the car tracks I left behind.”
The bearded man: “??” (baffled)
“Whatever you can name, like BLK-470, IDBD-986, RKI-603… anyway, right now Eimi Fukada’s license plate is something that I’m extremely familiar with. Right, I also like watching the entire series of Shuilaili XXX videos. I’ve even memorized the license plate in reverse.”
“Wait… wait a minute!” Flustered, the bearded man asked, “When you said you could drive, what kind of car were you referring to?”
“What other car could it be?” Chen Yu glanced at the other party in surprise, put the car in gear, and stepped on the accelerator.
“Wait a minute! Better change… Let me change places with you, all right?”
“It’s okay! I can drive this car too.”
The moment he finished speaking, the car jerked a great distance from its parking spot.
“Hoo!” Surprised, Chen Yu said, “Performance level is quite good indeed.”
The bearded man: “…” (speechless)
“Right.” As he accelerated the car, Chen Yu turned his head and asked, “How long have things been going on between the two of you?”
“You have to slow down a little…”
“I’m already going really slow. Tell me, how long have things been going on between the two of you?”
“Just the day before yesterday.” The bearded man put on his seat belt and gripped firmly onto the handle with his right hand and then said, “You have to go even slower.”
“Just the day before yesterday and today? And you’re freaking ready to get engaged?”
“Ah… I’ve been pursuing her for more than a year, and it was only the day before yesterday that she said yes.”
“What do you like about my sister?”
Chen Yu: “…” (speechless)
“That is… other than being pretty, she also has a pretty good personality. Can you slow down a little more? I kind of feel like throwing up.”
Chen Yu immediately slammed on the brakes.
The car came to an abrupt stop.
If it weren’t for the seat belt, the bearded man would have almost crashed into the windshield.
“What are you doing?”

At that, the bearded man looked around and asked, “This isn’t No. 2 Middle School, is it?”
“When out with my brother-in-law, of course I must have fun to my heart’s content. Why talk about going to school?”
That said, Chen Yu loosened his seat belt and got out of the car. Pointing to the luxuriously decorated door on the left, he said, “Go in and have fun.”
“Foot Bath City?!” The beardy was shocked.
