You Treat Me As If I Have A Sickness - Chapter 7
Xu Yuan and Meng Zhengrong didn’t stay for dinner. Mother Meng reluctantly watched them leave and repeatedly told them to come back for dinner tomorrow night. Only after Meng Zhengrong nodded, Mother Meng was satisfied.
Meng Pingting took her mother’s hand and said, “Brother is now married, he has his own family. Why do you look like your son was taken away?”
”Nonsense,” Mother Meng scolded her daughter at a glance, “After you get married when you become a mother you will understand my feelings.”
“Mom, don’t you think sister-in-law has changed?” Meng Pingting Crooked head, “Before I used to talk to her, but she’d ignore me. Today she took the initiative to give me a dish. Did she change her mind?”
Meng Pingting wanted to get along with Xu Yuan at the beginning. Before Xu Yuan and Meng Zhengrong got married, she had asked Xu Yuan to go shopping. She didn’t know why Xu Yuan refused straight away. She didn’t even care to chat when they met. Meng Pingting was also raised with pride, so how she could stand such neglect and disregard. Finally, she simply had deep opinions on Xu Yuan.
“It’s a lot better than before.” Mother Meng thought, “Getting married is no better than being a girl at home. You learn to restrain your temper.”
Meng Pingting remembered the thing she told her brother today. She is not a completely silly person. She won’t gossip in front of her parents about such things, but she still hoped Xu Yuan could move on from the past.
“Her temper has changed, so aloof, and I don’t know if she is like this in front of others,” Meng Pingting said this without paying attention.
Mother Meng turned to stare at her, “Did you turn a deaf ear to what your father taught you? No matter how Xiao Yuan is, after all, she is your sister-in-law. Pay attention to the future.”
“I didn’t say she wasn’t good. I am just saying, she is too cold. Okay, okay, Mom, don’t stare at me. I won’t say that in the future.”
Xu Yuan sat by the window, still some distance away from Meng Zhengrong. She is thinking about a problem now. After understanding the situation of Meng’s family and Xu’s family, what kind of role should she play?
Docile and virtuous? No, no, no, it does not meet the character of the original owner, and if it is too docile and sensible, The Xu family will be unhappy.
Or should I stick to my old way of doing things? To behave like her real self, she should make certain she could slip away from the situation. Of course, it’s impossible to follow her inclinations now. After all, she is Xu Yuan now.
Now it can be said that Xu Yuan’s life has been borrowed. Naturally, it is necessary to manage the present life well.
It’s important to keep a balance between the two families. She needs to think about how to position herself between the two families.
When Xu Yuan was deep in thought, Meng Zhengrong suddenly spoke, “There is a 4S shop nearby. Would you like to have a look?”
Xu Yuan suddenly looked back and read the words Meng Zhengrong said in her mind. Unfortunately, she found she didn’t know what a 4S shop was.
She didn’t know what to do, so she could only continue to play dumb and nod.
Seeing Xu Yuan nod, Meng Zhengrong told the driver to take a U-turn at the front intersection.
Not for long, the car was parked in front of a 4S store.
Xu Yuan followed Meng Zhengrong out of the car. Although the manager of the 4S shop didn’t know Meng Zhengrong, he looked at Meng Zhengrong and Xu Yuan’s dress and the car parked at the door. He immediately learned those people were rich and greeted with enthusiasm. “Hello, I am the manager here. What can I do for you?”
Meng Zhengrong nodded at the manager, then turned his head to Xu Yuan and gently said, “See if there is anything you like.”
Xu Yuan looked at the cars displayed in the store and suddenly understood everything. “Do you want to buy me a car?”
The manager was also a child prodigy. Looking at the wishing looks so beautiful, he thought a little at the beginning. He bowed his head and saw Xu Yaun and Meng Zhengrong wearing the same style of rings, and immediately realized the two should be a husband and wife.
He hurriedly asked enthusiastically, “Don’t know what style Madam likes?”
Xu Yuan finally understood what Meng Zhengrong meant by the 4S shop.
She certainly won’t drive, but she directly refused now. It would be a slap of her own face*. She agreed to come over just now. It would make Meng Zhengrong bewildered.
Thinking of this, Xu Yuan pretended to look around the store. The manager followed her step by step. He kept watching Xu Yuan’s eyes and saw she didn’t seem to be particularly interested. He said, “Or if madam likes anything, she can tell me directly, and we will inform you when the car arrives.”
Not all cars are available in 4S stores. The inventory is limited, and some customers will make it clear what they want. Then, they will order.
Xu Yuan couldn’t say what design. She said to Meng Zhengrong under great pressure, “Let me return and consider it. I really can’t say what style I like.”
Meng Zhengrong accepted this explanation. When they left, the manager of the 4S shop gave them a business card, saying they would be informed when the new model arrived.
When they left the 4S store and returned to the car, they had nothing to talk about.
If the person in front of me is the emperor, Xu Yuan can find very good content to talk about. If the person in front of me is a stranger, she can also talk with him with ease. But the irony was that Meng Zhengrong is a stranger with the face of the emperor, which is very difficult.
Meng Zhengrong is also thinking about his affairs. After he noticed something was wrong with Xu Yuan yesterday, he inquired about it with his friend. As a result, his friends sent him a message this morning.
This friend is Xu Yuan’s brother, Xu Nuo.
Xu Nuo told him that Xu Yuan met her cheating ex-boyfriend in the street a few days ago. The woman seemed to provoke Xu Yuan intentionally or unintentionally. Xu Yuan suddenly got angry, drove up, and knocked her ex-boyfriend’s car’s bumper flat.
Fortunately, Xu Yuan didn’t get reported at that time. The ex-boyfriend and the woman were also afraid of the Xu family and the Meng family to say anything. Although it didn’t make a big deal, some people in the circle already knew it.
Meng Zhengrong had also heard about Xu Yuan’s situation before he got married. He was friends with Xu Nuo, but when the two families had the intention of matching them. Xu Yuan had already broken up. She was probably heartbroken at that time. Maybe she agreed to marry him out of spite.
Frankly speaking, Meng Zhengrong didn’t mind after hearing this matter.
On the one hand, he thought it was no big deal, so he didn’t need to take it to heart. Xu Yuan had a past and he knew it before, so he didn’t have to haggle over that matter after marriage.
On the other hand, it is a cruel reality. That is he has no feelings like love with Xu Yuan at present, and naturally, he will not be jealous.
Sometimes this is the case between men and women because there is no feeling, so you can look at the problem more comprehensively and impartially.
However, Meng Zhengrong is not without a bottom line. He is also trying to cultivate a marital relationship with Xu Yuan. The bottom line is betraying marriage. Whether he or Xu Yuan, whoever crosses this bottom line, this marriage may end.
“If you don’t want to drive during this time, there seem to be more traffic accidents in the city recently,” Meng Zhengrong said gently.
He can see, Xu Yuan doesn’t want to buy a car, so there is no need to force her.
Xu Yuan didn’t expect Meng Zhengrong to be so considerate. She paused and smiled at him. Maybe she didn’t realize it herself. As long as she faced Meng Zhengrong, her smile was more respectful and a little bit flattering.
Meng Zhengrong’s line of sight is not X-ray, to grasp such a flattering smile of Xu Yuan.
“That’s what I thought, too.” Xu Yuan chimed in with.
She must learn these skills slowly, but after she has a firm foothold here.
After a short silence, Xu Yuan once again plucked up the courage to open her mouth: “En, it’s hard for you. Thank you!”
Only God knows how she risked everything to just spell out, “Thank you!”
If you say, ‘thank you’ and your tone is stiff. This conversation will be inexplicably awkward. After all, they are strangers again and also husband and wife.
If you say, ‘thank you’ and she looked lively again. She didn’t know him very well after all.
This phrase, ‘thank you!’ is not so unfamiliar, that also with a little coquettishly. As soon as Xu Yuan said it when she saw Meng Zhengrong’s face, her legs were soft again.
There is an indescribable sense of disobedience in playing coquettishly, with the face of a young woman. In a previous life, She always felt it was nothing to kneel and confess the Imperial Palace.
Xu Yuan is still very young, not yet on her 24th birthday. She had a youthful face and because she doesn’t wear heavy makeup. Her body was brimming with a teenage girl vibe, and her voice was a bit soft, but also very pleasant to hear. Meng Zhengrong was dazed when he heard such words from her mouth.
Don’t blame him for being in a daze. Matter of fact since he knew Xu Yuan, he hadn’t heard such soft words from her mouth. At that moment, he suddenly heard it, and his brain stopped working at once.
Meng Zhengrong gently coughed a few times. This time is not a dry throat, but purely to hide his gaffes, “Ahem, you’re welcome.”
Xu Yuan wanted to care about him, but when she thought about what happened just now, she felt she was rushing to give care again at the moment, which seemed like a dog leg*, so she kept looking out of the window.
