Rebirth handbook - Chapter 22
He Xianyang glanced at He Weiming, who was silent next to him, and gently said to Chang Manjing, “Weiming is too timid and uneasy. There will be so many family members at He family on New Year. I am afraid he is not used to it.”
He Xianyang also had a sister who was married and had two children. She would visit home during the Chinese New Year. In addition, there were He Xianyang’s uncle and aunt, as well as their children and grandchildren, big and small. They celebrate the New Year together. Chang Manjing met them a few times and there were some people who she didn’t even remember well. With so many people, she was intrigued each year during the Chinese New Year, but this year, she was ready to go nasty. So if the family got unhappy, her trip wouldn’t be in vain.
Chang Manjing asked He Weiming directly, “Weiming, do you want to come with me?”
He Weiming was flipping through a book. He raised his head and nodded since he wanted to go wherever she went. Things were settled. Early the next morning, the three drove to the He house. The He family was not rich in the past, and the wealth was not abundant. After He Xianyang married Chang Manjing and opened a company, the He family’s life was getting better and better, and they bought a villa in a good location.
When the three of them arrived at the house, it was already very lively. In the yard outside, some children were running wild and noisy. In the hall, his mother and several women were playing cards, with his father and two brothers. When Chang Manjing entered the door, she heard his father talk about the state’s policy for the environment was not good, and he would go abroad to recuperate when he gets old.
The smile on his mother’s face was suddenly pulled down when she saw Chang Manjing. She slapped the cards in her hand onto the card table.
“We have been waiting for you since early in the morning. Not only did you come so late, you brought a wild child to my family to celebrate the New Year…”
Chang Manjing took He Weiming and patted him comfortably on the shoulder. Then she snorted, and said to He Xian, “Mother, don’t you want to welcome us, mother and son? If you have said it earlier, I wouldn’t have come here to make you annoyed. My brother and my dad would like me to be with them.”
He Xianyang hurriedly laughed and said, “My mother always talks like this. Manjing, don’t you know? It was not all good before, what’s wrong now.”
Mother He was even more angry when she saw her son behave like a sluggish little boy. “If you can’t give birth to a son, there are ways. There is even surrogacy. What’s wrong with wishing for my son to have a child of his own? I don’t know from where you got such a gloomy child. You brought him here deliberately, ah!”
Chang Manjing didn’t pay attention to Mother He who was staring at her. She only smiled and continued to challenge He Xianyang coldly, “It turns out that your mother sees me like this. I’ve endured it all these years for your face. But there are always times when I can’t help it. He Xianyang, you can figure it out.”
Then she took He Weiming out. Seeing her turn around and leave without saying a word, not only He Xianyang, the other two women playing cards smiled and said affectionately, “Manjing, your mother-in-law’s words are always like these. Be more forgiving. In fact, I am worried about you, the young couple. Don’t quarrel during the New Year. Calm down. Let’s go and sit there.”
“Oh, my son-in-law also came this year. I heard that his company is doing a good job. He just had a little trouble with Chang’s company… We are all relatives and we work together to make money. Let’s talk.”
“Lingling, come here. Call Manjing, sister-in-law. Manjing, this is Lingling, and she is about to graduate from university. This girl hasn’t found an internship company yet, I was thinking of Manjing’s company. Isn’t it just right…”
Most of the relatives who came to He family for the New Year’s holidays wanted to benefit from Chang Manjing for various purposes. Chang Manjing was used to seeing it in the past years. She naturally knew that if she wanted to leave, the ones who would be anxious to stop her would be those people. As expected, just as soon as she turned around, she was surrounded by a group of smiling women. They sat on the side and praised and persuaded her for a while.
