Chapter 2209: Uncle is so petty!
Suddenly, the doorbell rang.
Yun Yecheng immediately stood up to open the door. His son-in-law held him back by the shoulder and said, “Dad, you can take a seat; I’ll open the door, instead.”
The elderly man was taken by pleasant surprise and, with a smile, sat down obediently.
Mu Yazhe walked to the front door and opened it, only to see his brother-in-law standing there.
Gong Jie was surprised to see him opening the door. He raised his eyebrow but still naturally addressed him as so.
The latter hummed in acknowledgment.
Surprisingly, the former did not wear his iconic white coat today. Instead, he wore a red shirt with a black, long coat which covered his knees. He had a pair of black, straight, and fitting pants on with a matching pair of black long boots. He seemed high-spirited, tall, and intimidating.
It was unclear if he was conforming to the festive occasion, but the red shirt he was wearing added more charm to his fair skin and soft, deep eyes.
There were very few men who could pull off a red shirt.
He stuffed his hands in his coat’s pockets and walked in. He glanced across the living room and smiled at the unfamiliar faces as he greeted, “Happy New Year!”
“You’re Shishi’s younger brother, right?” asked Yun Yehou with a smile.
He had seen this young man once during his niece’s engagement ceremony. As he had very similar features to her, he had a strong impression of the chap.
When Gong Jie saw him, he gave a proper gentlemanly bow and smiled. “Yes! Hello, uncle!”
“Nice to meet you! Come have a seat!”
“The reunion meal isn’t done yet! Go and have some melon seeds and peanuts first!” chimed in Yun Yecheng as he received the man.
When Little Yichen saw his uncle, he flocked to greet him like a lively bird. He circled him, jumping and chattering, “Uncle, Happy New Year! May you be prosperous!”
In other words, hand over your red packet!
The man was stunned. He immediately slapped his forehead heavily and lowered his head guiltily, confessing, “Little boy, I forgot to prepare a red packet for you. What should I do?”
The lad’s face collapsed as if the sky had been ripped apart.
He shriveled his lips indignantly and seemed to be very unhappy.
His uncle’s red packet was the one he had been looking forward to the most.
Last night, under the covers, his younger twin secretly told him that their uncle was an extremely rich and powerful man. One could say that his wealth flowed like oil, and he was worth millions and millions. Last year, their uncle gave Youyou a red packet during the New Year, and his method simple and rough. He directly transferred ten million pounds to his account.
The boy was utterly shocked.
Ten million and in pound sterling?!
This felt even better than winning the lottery.
Little Yichen widened his eyes when he heard that!
He had never seen such an impressive red packet before!
The biggest red packet he had received on New Year’s Eve came from his father, and it had only been a few million. That was already an enormous amount!
Therefore, he was genuinely excited about Gong Jie’s red packet. He had even prepared his bank account for it, yet now, his uncle was telling him that he forgot to prepare his red packet.
Mu Yichen’s face darkened in an instant.
“Uncle is so petty!”
The little fella spat bitterly before turning to leave coldly, planning to ignore him.
