The dishes were served one after another as they exchanged more conventional greetings.
They ate and talked at the same time.
However, for some reason, Yun Shishi felt that their topics ultimately still revolved around her man.
Even though the man was unwilling to pay attention to her relatives, all the same, he remained refined and courteous.
Xiang Yu: “Little Mu, how old are you this year?”
Mu Yazhe: “Twenty-eight.”
“Oh, dear! I couldn’t tell at all! For a minute, I thought you are only twenty-two. If that’s the case, you must have some idea about what it’s like to be working in this society.”
“I’ve been working since I was twenty.”
When she heard this, the older woman lamented, “Does that mean you didn’t attend college?”
Her younger daughter quipped, “Ah! I didn’t go to college, either! While I did qualify, we didn’t have enough money to pay the tuition fee, so my education was delayed.”
With that, she threw her two relatives a furious glance.
Yun Shishi only cared about taking care of her uncle, though, so she was completely unaware of her cousin’s gaze.
Mu Yazhe: “I did attend college, but I completed my studies at the age of nineteen.”
Xiang Yu widened her eyes in shock. “Which university did you study at?”
Her eyes bulged. “Stan-what-ford?!”
“Stanford University,” he responded politely.
She furrowed her eyebrows. “I’ve never heard of that university.”
At the side, Yun Qinli felt embarrassed, so she rushed to clarify things. “Mom, he’s talking about Stanford—an extremely prestigious school in the US! That university!”
“Oh… I see.” The older woman rubbed her hands together, obviously feeling rather ashamed.
“Niece, you’re twenty-three this year, right?” suddenly asked Yun Yehou.
The woman in question raised her head and smiled. “Uncle, I think you remembered it wrongly? I’m twenty-four this year.”
“Twenty-four?!” He smacked his forehead. “Oh, dear! I got your birthday mixed up!”
“You forgot? When you came over last time, my daughter wasn’t even in university yet!” remarked his older brother.
“This means that this niece of mine is actually older than my youngest daughter by a year! Qinli should be calling you ‘older cousin’!”
His daughter gasped in shock. “I didn’t know that cousin is actually a year older than me! Oh, my. We messed up! Cousin, I need to start calling you that from now on!”
Soon enough, the conversation went back on track.
Nonetheless, the pair of siblings was still more focused on the young man. From time to time, they would ask related questions, such as “Do you have a house in the capital,””Do you have any brothers or sisters,” and “What occupations do your parents have.”
The man answered them accordingly, yet his replies were all perfunctory at best.
The older of the two siblings was calculating inside, A good family background, a house in the capital, a stable job with a high income—he’s an excellent man!
Maybe he’s also a rich man’s son.
After all, that watch on his wrist could not be a counterfeit.
Wearing a watch worth millions of yuan must mean that he came from a prosperous family.
She glanced at her cousin again, secretly sizing the latter up. No wonder she could find such a good man. She was the epitome of beauty and knew how to coax people. Such a personality was one that many men fell for!
Yun Shishi could only feel her relative’s piercing gaze, and this made her a little uncomfortable.
She began to make changes in her plan inwardly. It seemed that she must seek a separate place for her other relatives to reside!
Even though they were relatives, it was better for them not to stay at the same house!
