The Xiao family in the capital was rather well-known!
He had heard of this family but did not have any contact with them.
Wang Chuande narrowed his eyes slightly, tilted his head, and thought for a while before asking, "Is her father Xiao Zheng from the Xiao Financial Group?"
That family had a decent reputation among the elites.
It would be most ideal if the Gao and the Xiao were to become allies through this marriage.
It was important for the elites to marry someone with the same social standing.
At least, the woman would come with a clean background unlike those from the entertainment industry!
"When did it start?"
"It started about half a month or so ago."
"Eh…" The fury in his eyes simmered as he pondered on.
Now, his nephew finally had a decent girlfriend.
With his face softening, he said, "I don't want to nag at you, but you know that you're not young anymore. Your mom has been nagging me about your marriage all this time! Men at your age ought to settle down and not play a fool, especially with those women in showbiz! That girl looks decent enough. Find a good day and bring her home for your mother to see; it's so that she will stop worrying about your future!"
"Yes, yes! Still, it's rather early to talk about settling down, right?" The thought of marriage made him want to run.
This topic only gave him a headache.
He was still young; why did he have to get tied down so early?
His uncle reprimanded, "Early? You're turning 28, and soon you'll be 30. Is that considered early? It's time to curb your vices! Your grandfather pines for a grandchild and has been nagging about this every day. His heart will settle when you get married!"
Gao Nan did not want to hanker on this matter further, and he brushed this aside with a few perfunctory assurances.
He thought that his uncle was only after him on this matter, but then his uncle continued in a more serious tone. "What happened between you and Master Mu? He complained to me about you! Let me warn you; don't try to have funny ideas about his people. He's not one you can mess with!"
He caught on it fast. "Did that Mu Yazhe say something to you?"
His uncle flared up. "You be respectful! You're unqualified to address him by his name directly!"
His nephew would not be bowed.
He was the same age as that man, and both were equal on peer level. Why could he not address him by his name directly?!
His uncle could read through his thoughts. Seeing the unconvinced look on his face, the middle-aged man snorted. "Don't give me that look! I'm not looking down on you, but how can you compare yourself with him? You are both 28, yet he's already this capable. While he is a prominent figure in the capital, you have nothing to show! For you to address him as 'Master Mu' is a favor given on my account; if not…"
His nephew was subdued. "Uncle… how can you put down your nephew in this manner?"
"I'm just warning you. Don't touch anyone belonging to Master Mu ever; do you understand?!" His eyes looked stern and serious, and he spoke in a voice that brooked no argument.
He would stop here for now. His harshness was to reiterate the severity of this matter.
If not, his nephew might continue fooling around and bring him trouble in the future!
"Yes, I know; I know!" The young man gave a perfunctory reply, though in his heart, he was thinking otherwise.
He would wait for that man to get tired of that woman before he took his turn.
It would be impossible for him not to go after the woman whom he fancied!
Of course, he must not let his uncle find out his real intention!
Both men looked at each other, absorbed in their thoughts.
