Chapter 2308: The Gathering of the Ultimate Riches (9)
"Yes, I agree with my wife… If Pudding joins our family, her IQ and EQ will definitely make our family business better than GK…" Wei Liao was also very proud. It seemed like he was very satisfied with this arranged marriage.
"You guys are over-thinking it. This is just our anticipation. It's great if they can maintain this relationship when they grow up, but if one of them picks someone else, we would have done all these things in vain," Gao Ran reminded them.
"It's fine. We'll just go with the flow, ha. It'll be better if everything works out; if not, they'll still be close friends." Jiang Xiaowei was very optimistic.
"By the way, when are the two of you getting married? You can have a baby and join the fun…" Wei Liao looked at Tang Chuan and Qin Ning and joked deliberately.
"Don't worry… just watch me."
"Get lost! Quit talking nonsense…" Qin Ning secretly stepped on Tang Chuan's foot underneath the table.
"Yikes, my goodness! Can you be more gentle? You're killing your husband…"
The atmosphere was very relaxed with this humorous couple.
Huo Mian suddenly remembered the couple beside her. "When do you guys plan to have a baby? You guys can have one while you're still young, then you can nurse your body and then go for another one…"
"Yeah, that's what we're thinking as well…" Chen Jie nodded shyly.
"How about you guys, Rick? When will you guys have good news?" Tang Chuan asked Rick.
Xixi was suddenly embarrassed and got up awkwardly. "Urgh, I'll go to washroom first…"
"Why is she running away? Geez, she's got even thinner skin than Ning-Ning!" Tang Chuan teased.
"Xixi and I… won't be considering a wedding for now. We'll talk about it after the urgent matters are dealt with," Rick answered in a serious tone.
Everybody raised their glasses while they ate and drank at the same time. Huo Mian got up. "I'll go to washroom too. You guys drink first."
When Huo Mian got to the washroom, she saw Xixi combing her long hair.
"Mian…" Xixi smiled brightly when she saw Huo Mian.
"How's your wound recovering?" Huo Mian asked.
"It's fine and doesn't hurt anymore. Even when I press it lightly, there's no big deal. I'm still young, so I'll recover fast. Don't worry about me."
Huo Mian nodded. "Did Rick tell you about bringing you to the States?"
Xixi smiled sweetly. "Yes, he did."
"What do you think?"
"I… I still want to be with him. To be frank with you, I was like a lonely soul without him for the past few years. Mian, I'm not afraid of you laughing at me. I love Rick very very much and I don't want to be separated from him ever again, so…"
"I understand. How about your family? Do they agree with you going aboard?"
"My family's already used to me being in a foreign country. My sister doesn't really approve because it's an unfamiliar place for me. But you know my temper, I will do anything for love. I can even throw in my life for it. Maybe you are disappointed at me, but I'm just this type of person…" When Xixi said these words, she was extremely unconfident about herself.
She didn't dare to look Huo Mian in the eyes.
"Xixi, don't be nervous. I don't blame you, and I won't laugh at you. I'm just worried about your safety. Do you know what Rick does for a living?"
"Yes, he told me everything."
"Yeah, then you should know how dangerous it will be in a place like the United States, where guns are legal?" Huo Mian asked seriously.
