Su Qingsang’s department was few miles from the Su Mansion. She was in a car going to the Su Mansion. Su Qingsang couldn’t help but turn around and take a look at Huo Jinyao. Huo Jinyao looked handsome; tall and statuesque in a white suit the day before yesterday. As for yesterday, he had worn sportswear—casual and leisurely. Today he wore a white T-shirt and black suit pants. How can he bear such hot weather? Su Qingsang wondered.
Huo Jinyao had a perfect figure which fit all clothes perfectly. As long as it was being worn by him, any clothes would make him even more charming. This black and white suit made him look taller, straighter, and even more handsome.
Su Qingsang didn’t pay a lot of attention to appearance, but she had to admit in her heart that Huo Jinyao was quite good-looking. His appearance was almost flawless. However, looking at such a well-dressed young man, she couldn’t help but wonder why he had married her. When she snapped out of her thoughts, the car had already arrived at Su Mansion.
Looking at the familiar building, Su Qingsang took a deep breath and got out the car first.
“You...” She wanted to tell him about her family but found nothing to say. Because they had met at the wedding, he had a rough idea of her family. He wasn’t the one who was in a position to lose anything, but she still hoped that he could be scrupulous since they were in the Su Mansion.
“Wait.” Huo Jinyao seemed to have noticed her hesitation. He went back to the trunk and opened it. At the sight of what was inside, Su Qingsang was surprised.
“What are these?” she asked.
“Gifts.” Huo Jinyao took the things out one-by-one in front of her. “You said that we would return to the Su Mansion today, didn’t you? I don’t know what your parents like, so I just picked some randomly.”
Did he buy those randomly?
Su Qingsang looked at the logos and wrapping of those gifts. It seems like he didn’t buy those gifts randomly at all.
“It must have cost you a great deal,” Su Qingsang said. Actually, he didn’t have to do all that. She was in an embarrassing position at the Su Mansion. Her family wouldn’t appreciate her no matter what she did.
“Don’t say that.” Huo Jinyao picked all the bags up while speaking, putting his face closer to hers. He said, “I told you I lost my job, right? I spent all my savings on this, so you be the breadwinner later.”
Su Qingsang’s mouth convulsed slightly. He’s obviously trying to appease my family even though he can’t really afford to. “How could you?!” she exclaimed.
“I should gain some favor with my mother-in-law and father-in-law upon our first return, right?”
His words left her almost speechless. She wanted to help him with those bags but he insisted he could carry them by himself.
After hearing the sound of the car arriving and some speech, the gatekeeper came to open the door for them.
Nanny Zhang also came out soon after. “Miss Qingsang, you’re back?” she asked.
“Yes.” Su Qingsang nodded at her and stepped inside.
Nanny Zhang held her hands gently and said, “Miss Qingsang, there are other guests at home.”
Su Qingsang looked at Nanny Zhang and answered with a grateful smile, “I got it, thank you.”
Anyway, there was always a way out. Su Qingsang had probably foreseen what tricks the Su people were planning.
“What’s wrong?” Huo Jinyao noticed her slower pace and turned around to look at her.
“It’s okay.” Su Qingsang kept up with him and said, “Just some guests are in the house.”
Huo Jinyao immediately understood her meaningful expression and nodded at her.
They walked into the living room together, and the people inside all looked in their direction as soon as they stepped into the room.
Su Qingsang noticed, among all people, a person who shouldn’t have been there—Wei Lenan.
