Yun Yehou stared at her for a long time before he exclaimed in sudden realization, “Oh! Aren’t you Shishi? You’re my niece, right? I recognize her now! Ha ha…”
He reached out to pat her hand, telling her with much contentment, “My niece has grown up and has become prettier than before! What a beauty she’s now!”
His eyes brimmed with tears as he gave this emotional remark .
His wife and two daughters at the side were rather disturbed by his enthusiasm, though they suppressed their discomfort just as quickly .
Inwardly, his wife was thinking, She’s not your daughter; why are you so happy?!
Yun Shishi glanced at the women standing behind her uncle and walked up to them . “This must be auntie! How are you?”
Xiang Yu gave a pretentious smile, gushing, “Oh, my . It’s my niece! It’s really my niece! Wow! You are all grown up now; auntie here couldn’t recognize you at first . ”
The older daughter, Yun Qingmiao, chipped in, “Eh? Does cousin look different from before? I can’t tell the difference . ”
She was older than her cousin by three years and had seen the latter once when she was small .
The younger daughter, Yun Qinli, remarked with indifference, “Sis, you haven’t seen cousin for many years; of course, you won’t be able to remember her!”
Yun Shishi smiled and called out sweetly, “Cousins Qingmiao and Qinli . ”
The two siblings went up and shook hands with her . For some reason, the younger one was looking at her strangely .
Actually, the younger sibling was not keen to see her .
After all, if not because of her uncle and his family, she would have gone to college instead of being ridiculed .
Mu Yazhe’s appearance in their midst immediately garnered the sisters’ attention .
He was too conspicuous . Even with his shades on and dressed in casual clothes, his magnetic charisma could not be ignored as he stood beside their cousin without a word!
His presence was overpowering .
The younger one’s attention was only on her cousin, whereas her older sister had already taken notice of the man and was, in fact, casting a few furtive glances at him .
This man is so handsome!
He’s so fashionably dressed . The leather jacket on him looks expensive; is he wearing branded items from head to toe?!
This man should be very rich, or perhaps he comes from a family with a decent background .
Is he… cousin’s boyfriend?
Their mother had noticed him as well . Tugging at her niece’s sleeve, she asked furtively, “Is he…”
Her niece was at a loss .
Standing at one side, the man announced casually and expressionlessly, “How are you, auntie? I’m Shishi’s husband . ”
His sudden and unexpected announcement took his woman by surprise, so much so that she choked on her saliva . Cough!
She regained her composure and glared at him unhappily .
This man is so presumptuous!
He has just proposed, and we haven’t reached the stage of registering our union yet; how can he be considered my husband?
He smiled despite her angry look . “Why; do you need to be so shy?”
Everyone let out a yelp of surprise in unison and stared unbelievably at the couple .
No one was as shocked as her father, though .
Isn’t he her professor in university?
He was only away for a few months, and… pronto, this man had turned into his son-in-law!
Yun Yehou also gazed in wide-eyed disbelief at the two .
His wife exclaimed, “Niece, are you truly married? How come I wasn’t informed?”
