Mu Ya stroked Shen Yin’s soft short hair and said gently, “So long as you like it.”
Not happy that he, the biological father, appeared inferior by comparison, Muir chimed in, “Regarding studies, so long as you’re willing, our family will help you settle it. You don’t have to go to school. You can have a tutor teach you at the florist shop. I’ve already settled your father’s hospital bills and given him a sum of compensation.”
“Thanks… Uncle.” As the other party was Mu Ya’s father, Shen Yin deeply respected him. Her att.i.tude was even better than towards G.o.dfather Curtis who had just given her a florist shop.
Now, it was Curtis’s turn to feel stifled.
Mu Ya pinched Shen Yin’s palm and said, “Muir is my father. You should call him ‘Dad’ just like me..”
Shen Yin widened her eyes which were rapidly turning moist and forming faint blood vessels. After taking a look at Muir, she looked at Mu Ya, her lips quivering a little. “You’re saying we’re getting married?”
Mu Ya felt strange at her question. “When did I say we’re not getting married? We’ve already…”
As the two adults were present, Mu Ya’s sentence trailed off, and his face also started heating up.
Shen Yin blinked slightly, and several large drops of tears slipped down her cheeks. In the modern age, probably not many people would think it went without saying that one must get married after having s.e.xual relations. Or else, “marriage proposal” wouldn’t be an indispensable step for a couple to transition into a married couple.
Moreover, they were only 17, not an age where one tended to consider marriage. Shen Yin only dared to quietly hope for it and hadn’t the courage to bring it up with him.
It had never occurred to her that Mu Ya had long regarded her as a lover whom he would spend the rest of his life with.
Also realizing that he sounded like he was taking her consent for granted, Mu Ya asked, “Are you willing to marry me?”
Shen Yin nodded repeatedly, tears pattering upon the blanket. “Willing! I’m willing!”
While this scene was very touching, Muir had an urge to beat someone up.
This stupid son. Why did he form a spousal relations.h.i.+p just like that? Thankfully, this young lady was sincere. Otherwise, this son of his would have been ruined for life.
Sensing Muir’s gaze, the sensitive Shen Yin instantly looked over and called out “Dad” embarra.s.sedly.
Muir nodded in acknowledgment and said, “Let’s go home. Dinner is ready. Qingqing is urging us.”
Curtis instantly got up and walked out of the ward.
Shen Yin started feeling nervous again. She whispered to Mu Ya, “Can I not go?”
He lifted her horizontally and rea.s.sured her gently, “My mom is the nicest. My younger sister is back today as well. Tonight’s dinner is very sumptuous, you can eat a lot.”
Shen Yin blushed and said in a small voice, “I… don’t eat much.”
“Alright, not much.”
Mu Ya replied seriously, yet the smile on his lips couldn’t be restrained, causing them to purse into a line.
Not daring to look at him, Shen Yin simply buried her face in his chest.
This was Shen Yin’s first exposure to Mu Ya’s family. Bai Qingqing had only learned of her relations.h.i.+p with Mu Ya today and was truly shocked by it.
Her first reaction was, of course, anger. Anger at Mu Ya for being too reckless.
However, since even Curtis had stepped in, and her mates all acknowledged Shen Yin, her heart was put to ease. So, she simply sat in the living room and eagerly waited for Shen Yin to appear.
“Mommy, when are we going to eat? I’m hungry.” Bai Zhenbei stroked her little pet snake and asked.
“Soon. Your sister-in-law is coming over to our house to eat today. We’ll eat when everyone is here. Be good,” Bai Qingqing said as she patted her daughter’s head.
Bai Zhenbei nodded obediently and quietly sat on the sofa to wait.
A brief mention about Bai Zhenbei here—as an offspring of the snake tribe, she perfectly inherited the snake species’ laziness and was extremely fond of taking naps.
This was why, even though her elementary school was very near to her home, she still took the initiative to request to be a boarding student, just so that she could get in that bit of extra sleep every morning.
