However, Shi Nuannuan was not stupid. She did not hear the sound of her grandfather’s footsteps leaving, so how could she possibly speak again.
He did not hear anything and thought that she had hung up the phone, so he did not say anything more and turned around to go downstairs.
Only when the footsteps gradually faded away did Shi Nuannuan put her phone to her ear and said to Xiangyi on the phone, “I’m going to eat. Happy New Year!”
“Happy New Year.” Xiangyi’s voice came from the phone.
The phone call put her in a good mood. She hummed a little tune as she went downstairs.
“It’s so lively this year. Shall we get together every year for the New Year?”
“How is that possible? You’ll get married sooner or later. If you get married, you’ll have to spend the new year at someone else’s house.” Shen Lanzhi realized that her daughter had really grown up. In the blink of an eye, she had reached the age of marriage. She couldn’t help but feel a little melancholic.
At this moment, Shi Le suddenly said, “That’s not necessarily true. She can come with her in-laws. Why don’t our three families spend the new year together?”
The reason Shi Le said that was because he felt that if Nuannuan married into the Cheng family, the friendly ties between the two families would definitely make it possible.
However, Shi Nuannuan smiled awkwardly. She lowered her head and silently picked up a piece of spinach from the hot pot to eat.
If grandfather knew that she was going to marry Xiangyi, would he still say that?
After the family reunion dinner, Zuo Yi took out a red packet and distributed it to everyone. Even Shen Lanzhi had one. In his eyes, she was also a junior.
Shi Nuannuan felt a little strange. Every year after the reunion dinner, grandfather would give out red packets. Why was there no red packet this year?
Sitting on the sofa, she looked at her grandfather suspiciously. “Grandfather, where are your red packets?”
“I’ll send it later. There will be guests coming,” said he with a smile. He had prepared a big red packet for Cheng Huan.
Shi Nuannuan could not help but pause.
Guests? Who were they?
They were in Z Country right now. Could it be that Brother Shenghao was coming?
No, when she called him in the afternoon to pay her new year’s greetings, he said that he had gone on a trip abroad and was not in Z Country.
Then who could it be?
“Okay, Happy New Year.”
Zuo Weiyi also received a new year’s call from her best friend.
She really did not expect that her good friend would also be getting married. Time really passed in the blink of an eye.
At eight o’clock, the doorbell of Shi Mansion rang. Uncle Yu took the initiative to walk out to open the door. Not long after, he saw that Cheng Huan’s family of three generations had arrived.
When she saw Cheng Huan, Shi Nuannuan, who was sitting on the sofa, could not help but be stunned. The smile on her face suddenly froze.
The guests that grandfather mentioned were those from the Cheng Family?
Both parties briefly introduced each other before sitting down on the sofa.
Cheng Huan’s parents’ gaze fell on Shi Nuannuan’s face. The more they looked at her, the more they liked her.
Shi Nuannuan felt a little uncomfortable being looked at, so she stood up and planned to leave the group of the elders alone.
Her brother and sister-in-law were setting up Kong Ming lanterns in the courtyard. She was going to make a wish too!
“Cheng Huan, you should go too. Young people have more things to talk about when they are together. It’s better to not feel bored sitting together with us, the older generation.” Shi Le encouraged Cheng Huan when he saw Shi Nuannuan leave the table.
Cheng Huan liked Shi Nuannuan, but because of her frank rejection last time, he did not know if he should continue pursuing her or just take a step back.
However, just when he decided he should give up on her, she appeared in front of him again. His heart seemed to be deeply attracted to her, and his mind was filled with her.
