“Bella still thinks that I’m not mature enough so we’re still giving each other some time . I brought up the engagement many times before she finally agreed . The people at GK have been gossiping about our relationship for such a long time . I just think that it’s time to give our relationship a proper title . ”
“Yes, not bad . I’m very happy that you’re so thoughtful . You’re really becoming more and more responsible . ” Huo Mian laughed .
“Son, did Bella’s family give you any requirements? According to the local tradition, we should give them 88,000 yuan for an engagement . Back when your sister got engaged, the Qin Family gave us a lot . We can’t cheat Bella . ”
Yang Meirong had met Bella many times and was very satisfied with the girl .
Although the latter was slightly older than her son, it was her mature attitude that guided Zhixin into becoming a real man .
Plus, even Mian had nothing but great things to say about Bella and that had to count for something .
Bella was a seasoned employee at GK and they were a match made in heaven . After they got together, Zhixin and Bella would handle all sorts of things in and out of the company . When Qin Chu and Huo Mian were out of town, they felt absolutely comfortable passing on the responsibilities to the young couple .
“Mom, Bella’s not with me for the money . Can you not be so old-fashioned?” Zhixin laughed .
“This has nothing to do with being old-fashioned . This is a tradition here… Forget the fact that we’re richer now, we can’t cheat Bella even if we’re poor . Her parents worked hard to raise her! Although you’re not getting married yet, engagement means that she’s willing to marry you . ”
“Wow, Mom, you’re so reasonable now . ” Zhixin squinted his eyes .
“Go away . Don’t try to talk me up . Mian, what do you think?” Yang Meirong turned to her daughter .
“I’m not opposed to it . Whatever makes them happy . What did Bella say? Did she say how she wanted it?” Huo Mian asked .
“Bella wants it as low-key as possible . She doesn’t want the world to know . ”
“That sounds like her style . ”
“So, Sis, I want to have a simple ceremony in GK’s hotel . I’ll just invite some people from the company . ”
“That’s good . ”
“Qin Chu would agree, right?” Zhixin asked .
“You’re brother-in-law has always been generous . It’s just that… shouldn’t we do more for Bella?” Huo Mian said .
“Sis, I bought her a ring that’s one carat . Although it’s not big or fancy, I earned the money with my own hands . I didn’t ask for money from you or Qin Chu . Since I want to have a wife, I have to have the ability to take care of a family . Plus, you and Qin Chu have helped me out too much throughout the years . I can’t keep relying on you . Look at Ni Yang, he’s close to my age but he’s already capable of taking care of such a big family . I also have a lot of responsibilities at work . I can’t act like a petulant, irresponsible child anymore . ”
“Oh? My little brother’s all grown up! Not bad, Mr . Jing Zhixin . ” Huo Mian looked at her little brother appreciatively .
“Actually, I’ve always been living by the book . I’ve just never done anything too impressive . Honestly, I know that I wouldn’t be able to get into GK without being your younger brother . After your incident, I reflected on a lot of things . I even thought about how I would take care of Mom, Little Bean, and Pudding if something really did happen to you…”
“Don’t say that!” Yang Meirong furrowed her brows .
“Mom, I’m only giving you an example . I learned only recently that Sis had taken care of me so much throughout the years . I can’t let her carry all the weight anymore . I’m a man . I should get my career on track and get married . Then, I can help Sis and Qin Chu even more . I’d be able to handle more work . ”
“Not bad . It’s good that you’ve thought of these things . Have you chosen a date for the engagement?” Huo Mian took a sip of the juice and looked at Zhixin and asked .
