Chapter 119: Don’t Give Gifts, Just Give Money! (1)
After Zhang Guifang was done writing her a prescription, she handed it to Chen Xiuqi so he could go retrieve it from the pharmacist. After he got the medicine, the hospital decocted it for them. Once it was done, they were divided into several bags for convenient use. His wife could easily just take one bag each time, they’ll be ready for use after heating it up in hot water for a bit.
After Chen Xiuqi brought back the medicine that was prepared early on, he saw only Zhang Guifang in the office. He asked her, “Auntie, where’s Yaya?”
Zhang Guifang looked up from her paperwork and said, “She went to the bathroom.”
Chen Xiuqi put down the medicine and sat down on the stool at the side, he was waiting for her to come back.
Zhang Guifang’s voice suddenly resounded in the room, “I think your relationship has improved. When I first saw you bring her home, you were just married then. You weren’t as close together as you are now. I can feel at ease when I see the two of you like this. I keep thinking that you were still young like you were before, it’s really hard to believe that you’re married now.”
Chen Xiuqi laughed when he heard this. “You make it sound like I’m still a child.”
Zhang Guifang told him, “You’ll always be a child in my eyes.”
Chen Xiuqi refuted her, “Auntie, I’ve already been married for several months.”
Zhang Guifang nodded. “Yes, I know. You brought Yaya here this time because you plan to have a child, am I right? However, since Yaya’s current condition isn’t so good. It’s better for her constitution to get better before the two of you try for one. It wouldn’t be too late by then.”
Chen Xiuqi frowned when he heard these words. “Nothing’s wrong with Yaya’s body, right?”
When Zhang Guifang saw how concerned he was about his wife, she smiled at him. “Just look at how nervous you are. There are no big issues to take note of, you don’t need to worry. As long as she rests well and takes her medicine on time, she’ll be fine after a while.”
Chen Xiuqi visibly relaxed after hearing this. He said, “That’s good then!”
Well, isn’t he quite worried for her?
After Su Yaya returned from the bathroom, these were the words he heard Chen Xiuqi and Zhang Guifang said just as she reached the door.
Then, Zhang Guifang continued on, “When Yaya’s body gets better you can have a big fat baby. If you’re too busy to take care of them, you can just bring them to me. I can take care of them for you.”
Chen Xiuqi laughed at this. “You think you can trick me into having kids just because cousin doesn’t want to have any? I won’t be fooled! If you want to raise a kid, go look for my cousin!”
Zhang Guifang laughing with him as well. She pointed at him and said, “You two brothers! What am I going to…” But suddenly, she seemed to have seen a figure at the door. She quickly changed her tone, “Yaya, are you back?”
When Yaya heard her words, she knew she couldn’t stand at the door while eavesdropping on them any longer. So, with a smile, she walked in and said, “Auntie, what were you two talking about that’s so funny?”
Zhang Guifang laughed and told her, “We were just having a chat. Xiuqi says you don’t like eating medicine, but you still have to take it for the sake of your health. After you finish your current prescription, you can come back and I’ll take a look at you again. This is all for your own good, okay? Us women should take good care of ourselves, men don’t understand these things.”
Chen Xiuqi was unhappy hearing this. “Auntie, I’m sitting right here. If you teach my wife bad things, what am I going to do if Yaya doesn’t want to talk to me anymore? Are you going to pay me back a wife?”
Zhang Guifang laughed and pointed at him. “See? That’s what I mean! Can’t I say one word about you?” She put on an angry look before waving her hand at him. “Hurry and take your wife home, otherwise, I’m going to turn your wife bad.”
But who knew that Chen Xiuqi would actually take this opportunity to say, “But of course!” He took Su Yaya’s hand and said goodbye to Zhang Guifang. “Well, we’ll be going now, auntie.”
