Chapter 149: Gloating Su Xiaoxuan (3)
His usual cold and arrogant attitude towards them was completely swept away.
Mommy Su was stunned to hear this. What’s more, the change in Uncle Su’s personality is too strange. Confused, she asked, “What? What do you mean?”
“I knew Yaya that child would be big one day. She’s always been so pretty since she was young and that really reflected on her when she grew up. She’s way more sensible than my Xiao Xuan…I’ve always liked Yaya a lot since she was young. I knew she was born to be a great person…It’s been a long time since Yaya’s been back. When is she coming back? You should ask her to come over if she ever returns!”
Mommy Su couldn’t get used to Uncle Su’s enthusiasm. After all, after Uncle Su’s status was elevated, he had always looked down at everyone else. It was hard for her to accept him being so friendly all of a sudden, and could only respond with dazedly.
Uncle Su went on, “So, when is Yaya coming home? You should call and ask. You should come over to my house for a meal if she comes back. I’ve got some stuff to settle here and I’d like to ask for her help. If she could ask her boyfriend to come with as well, then that would be for the best. Anyway, we’re all one family. Better help your family than an outsider, right?”
His words were getting more and more outrageous. Mommy Su felt like her brain was turning around. For Uncle Su to actually say that she needed Su Yaya’s help… What can a young lady like Su Yaya help him with?
But Mommy Su was still a protective woman towards her daughter so she told him, “I don’t know when Yaya is coming home but I’ll call and ask. I’ll be hanging up now!”
After saying that, she didn’t even give him a chance to say anything more before hanging up.
Only, before Mommy Su could even find time to breathe after hanging up and digesting the huge shock that Uncle Su had just given her, her phone immediately began ringing again. This time, it was Su Yaya’s aunt. As soon as she answered, she heard her aunt talking excitedly about Su Yaya’s amazing boyfriend, blabbing on just about the same thing as what Uncle Su said. They kept telling her about how Su Yaya should take her boyfriend home to meet the family.
There were too many things you could make out from asking for a meeting. But a simple gathering wasn’t the same as what they wanted. Mommy Su was no fool. She dealt with them all only with vague answers.
Only, another one comes ringing just as she finished dealing with one. Anyway, all the aunties and uncles would all call her as long as they knew her number.
All those phone calls ended up lasting more than an hour or two, it took Mommy Su a lot of effort to deal with all those family members.
“Daddy, we’ve been living here in the countryside for so long and they’ve never even called once to ask about us. Say, don’t you think it’s hilarious that they’re all calling to ask just because Yaya found herself a capable boyfriend? Preposterous!” Mommy Su complained to Daddy Su after she was done with the calls.
“Just ignore them!” Daddy Su was also angry about their family. He said to Mommy Sy, “First, why don’t you make a call to Yaya and ask her how things are going? Did she really get an amazing boyfriend?”
“From what I heard, it seems so,” Mommy Su told him.
Daddy Su said, “I think it’s still better for you to call Yaya just to ask how she’s doing.”
Daddy Su was angry about Su Yaya earlier and didn’t want Mommy Su to call her to show her concern because he was disappointed. But Mommy Su knows that Daddy Su worried about her so much that he could hardly sleep at night.
Mommy Su said, “Yes, yes. You’re right. I’ll call her now.”
And so, Mommy Su dialled that familiar phone number.
