In the living room without lights on, Jiang Zhao took Xiao Siye’s hand and walked quietly upstairs.
They vaguely heard Old Jiang’s snoring from the master bedroom, and Jiang Zhao was on tenterhooks all the way until he took Xiao Siye to the guest room, and finally let go.
The guest room is only separated from his bedroom by a wall. Jiang Zhao stuffed him into the guest room and told him, “Don’t go out in the morning. I’ll get up early and talk to my parents before you come out.”
He can simply imagine how teasing Mrs. Xu will look at him when she sees Xiao Siye tomorrow morning and his scalp tingle at the thought of this scene.
But after all, it was he who personally asked Xiao Siye to come to his house, and a word spoken can’t be recalled.
Xiao Siye looked down at him, his voice lowered, and a trace of guilt floated between his eyes: “It was my impulsiveness that caused you trouble tonight.”
Jiang Zhao is soft, he has always been a soft-hearted, hard-hearted master, and Xiao Siye looked pathetic and apologized to him, which made his only bad feelings suddenly dissipate.
“Aren’t you unhappy at your relative’s house?” Jiang Zhao raised an eyebrow, and some kind of responsibility as a gold owner made him unable to help but straighten up somewhat. “In that case, don’t think so much, and let go and have fun in my house.”
The melancholy on Xiao Siye’s face was suddenly swept away, and was replaced by a clear smile: “Well, I know.”
Jiang Zhao was slightly stunned. He coughed lightly, turned his head and said, “Then I’ll go back.”
“Good night,” He leaned against the door, too, and muttered again. “This seems to be the first good night I’ve said this year.”
Jiang Zhao’s footsteps halted.
Then, he pushed open the door of his room, and with the wind blowing when opening the door, a very soft voice followed, falling on the ears of Xiao Siye:
“… good night.”
“Happy New Year!”
“Good uncle, good aunt!”
“Oh, Xiu Xiu and Dudu are both tall. Here, take the red envelope!”
Jiang Zhao got up at six o’clock in the morning, but his relatives came earlier than he expected, so when he went downstairs, there were already many people in the living room.
Jiang Zhao can only smile stiffly and greet these strange relatives one by one, and incidentally accept a lot of enthusiastic praise from three aunts and six grandmothers.
He repeatedly motioned to Mrs. Xu, trying to keep her away from the encirclement of relatives, and she wanted to report that Xiao Siye also came to their house. However, Mrs. Xu probably hasn’t had a good time with others for too long. She sits at the center of relatives’ circle like a queen with melon seeds and slippers in her hands. She slaps her legs and laughs from time to time, and Jiang Zhao can’t pull her out.
After five minutes of hard work, Jiang Zhao gave up, but as soon as he turned around, two cute little girls who looked exactly the same appeared in front of him.
“Good little uncle!” Xiu Xiu raised his little face.
“Happy New Year!” Dudu, blink her eyes.
Jiang Zhao looked at his cousins who had grown from two pink and clever little dumplings into radish heads, and sighed, “When I go upstairs, I’ll give you two red envelopes.”
The little girls smiled and skipped behind Jiang Zhao.
Two little ones are just five years old, which is the age when they begin to understand, but one loves to be naughty more than the other. Jiang Zhao had asked them to wait downstairs. They held one of Jiang Zhao’s legs directly, like two large pendants: “We are going with our little uncle!”
Jiang couldn’t move, but he didn’t give up trying to dissuade him. “Wait downstairs, will you? Look for cartoons for you. Do you like Meow Meow Team, Wolf-loving Wolf, or Piggy Pejo? ”
Xiu Xiu blinked: “But I want to play with handsome guys.”
Dudu nodded: “Handsome guy!”
Jiang Zhao: “…”
Although he was reluctant to accept it, he had to admit that he was completely pinched by these two little girls.
The little girls’ eyes were bright and clear, like dew on the treetops in the morning, and they were so naive that Jiang Zhao sighed deeply.
He confessed to his cousin next to him, and then led a happy radish head upstairs.
The little girls was full of curiosity. Two years ago, Jiang Zhao was busy and never went home for the New Year, so they didn’t have a chance to go upstairs. They were too young to remember when they went upstairs.
There are many rooms on the second floor, except Jiang Zhao’s bedroom and two or three rooms, which are the study room, chess room, and game room. Jiang Zhao told them to wait at the door. He had already planned that there would be video games and dance machines in the game room. When he took the red envelope, he would drive the children to the next game room.
However, when Jiang Zhao just turned out the red envelope in his room, he listened to the little girls’ conversation:
“Is this the room?”
“Little uncle said, it’s a game room.”
“Is there anything in the game room?”
“Just go in and see.”
Jiang Zhao froze, then suddenly the react-that room is Xiao Siye’s guest room!
He darted out of the room at a speed of almost 100 meters: “Wait a minute!”
Xiu Xiu and Dudu have ignored him. Her fist is still in front of the guest room and seems to be knocking at the door.
Jiang Zhao let go, very glad that his two little nieces had a good tutor, and did not directly push the door in: “Not that one.”
However, as soon as his voice fell, the door clicked open.
Under Jiang Zhao’s desperate gaze, Xiu Xiu and Dudu opened their eyes. Moments later, Xiu Xiu took the lead in breaking into a loud scream:
“Little uncle hides a handsome boy in the room!”
Dudu covered her red little face: “Handsome guy!”
Before the two rabbits ran downstairs to expose him, Jiang Zhao chose a red envelope to cover their mouth and carry them downstairs.
Xiao Siye followed him and whispered, “Sorry, I thought it was you.”
“It’s okay,” Jiang Zhao sighed, thinking that what can’t be avoided is still unavoidable. “Just follow me downstairs.”
Xiao Siye’s eyes flashed a ray of bright color, but on the surface, he still looked nervous: “Now?”
Jiang Zhao’s expression was a little numb: “Yes, otherwise my relatives would have known that I was hiding a man in my room.”
Xiao Siye: “…”
He pressed the arc of his lips and replied, “Well, then I’ll try not to embarrass you.”
Jiang Zhao didn’t notice that Xiao Siye had been dressed up meticulously from head to toe, apparently already prepared.
That is to say, before he got up, Xiao Siye had already prepared to see his relatives.
Jiang Zhao’s awareness of his professionalism has once again risen to a higher level.
Five minutes later, under the surprised gaze of all the relatives of the Jiang family, Jiang Zhao gently coughed, “This is … my boyfriend.”
Mrs. Xu’s face flashed a trace of surprise, but then she understood, smiling naturally and everyone introduced, “This is the one from our small family, isn’t he handsome?”
“Oh!” Uncle Jiang exclaimed, “I’ve seen this guy on TV!”
Jiang’s relatives have long known Jiang Zhao’s sexual preference, but this is the first time in so many years to bring a boyfriend home. All of a sudden, they are burning with interest:
“How old? Are you with Zhaozhao? ”
“How long have you known Zhaozhao?”
“When are you going to get married?”
“Oh, you are so beautiful. Do you have a single brother? My aunt knows a girl …”
The bombing of this oncoming question has already made Jiang Zhao’s scalp tingle, but Xiao Siye is calm and takes a seat in the crowd, with a warm smile on his face, and he answers every question in the same way:
“This year’s 28th is a peer, and Xiao Zhao has always taken care of me.”
“We’ve known each other since college.”
“Get married? I haven’t considered this for the time being, and the present living conditions are suitable for both him and me. However, if he has the will, I will also cooperate. ”
“Sorry, there’s only a younger brother who hasn’t grown up yet.”
Being supercilious and approachable, it didn’t take a moment for Xiao Siye to gain the strong affection of all relatives in Jiang’s family.
Jiang Zhao wiped the sweat for Xiao Siye in his heart, and at the same time, he was faintly glad. Fortunately, Xiao Siye was there, so that he could escape the bombing from seven aunts and eight aunts every time he went home for the New Year.
If it were him, he would find an excuse to run away in less than minutes.
This passionate gossip lasted for more than an hour, and when the relatives of Jiang’s family arrived one after another, the kitchen began to cook in full swing. Different from the habits of other families, Jiang’s cooks are Old Jiang and several uncles. A group of gentlemen roll up their sleeves and put on floral aprons, while the ladies gather in the empty space of the living room set up the table, and play mahjong in full swing.
“Five cylinders!” At this time of the year, Mrs. Xu’s Sichuan-Sichuan DNA will be awakened, which can be called the brightest moment of the year. ” Come and give money! ”
Jiang Zhao coaxed his two little nieces to watch the wolf haunt. When he had time, he stood next to two card tables with Xiao Siye. He whispered to others and said, “When my mother was young, she used this skill to beat all the old ladies in her alley. Unfortunately, she was driven off the card table by the anxious old man several times.”
Xiao Siye said with emotion: “Great, what about you?”
Jiang Zhao coughed, “I inherited it from my father.”
Xiao Siye looked at him: “Like what?”
Jiang Zhao: “… for example, I’m responsible for lighting some guns for my mother.”
Xiao Siye bent his eyes. Just when he wanted to have fun, Jiang Zhao stared at him: “Don’t laugh.”
Xiao Siye had to bow his head and cover his smile: “Well, I have received professional training … I can’t laugh.”
Jiang Zhao: “…”
He can’t help it. There seems to be some talent and metaphysics in card skills. When Mrs. Xu was pregnant, she could still fight at the mahjong table. He was born and heard, but he didn’t inherit it at all.
On the other table, Jiang Zhao’s cousin called, looked at them when she got up, raised her hand and said, “Who will take my place?”
Jiang Xin moved and pushed Xiao Siye on the back: “Him!”
After a while, Xiao Siye sat at the card table, sitting in a shirt, too formal and out of place with this card table.
All three aunts and sisters looked at him with a sidelong smile, speaking kindly, as if a pack of wolves were looking at a lamb that had strayed into a pack: “Young man, can you play mahjong?”
Xiao Siye: “… a little.”
“It’s okay,” Jiang Zhao’s cousin waved a big hand. “Don’t worry, just have fun. We are very kind.”
Jiang Zhao couldn’t help but ask, “Do you want him to release a lot of money?”
He hasn’t forgotten that in the past, every time he went to the table, he was blinded by his relatives. When he was a child, he was stubborn. Every time he had to lose his pocket money, he held a small fist and went down to the table. When he grew up, he learned to be smart. No matter how his aunt advised him, he would never play.
Hearing this, his cousin made a fuss and looked at him: “Do you want to? I mean, I’ll leave him a pair of underpants. ”
Jiang Zhao: “…”
He looked at the hostile smiles of his relatives, and his heart was really a little uneasy. When he looked down again, Xiao Siye didn’t arrange a whole pair of mahjong in his hand. The order is obviously a new beginner’s appearance.
So Jiang Zhao was even more uneasy. He hesitated for a moment, bent down, and patted Xiao Siye on the shoulder: “Don’t go to the top, just run when you lose.”
Xiao Siye smiled at him, too. “No problem, I know.”
Jiang Zhao looked at him with an incredibly pure look, and his heart couldn’t help sighing over, even if he really lost all.
However, just a few minutes later, Xiao Siye pushed the mahjong in his hand: “Hu“胡。- not entirely sure since I’m not playing mahjong but if any of the reader knows please comment.”
Jiang Zhao: “?”
Relatives: “? ？”
Xiao Siye showed a gentle and harmless smile: “It should be good luck.”
Relatives reacted immediately, didn’t they? Beginners may also have good luck with Hu cards.
The next game will start soon, and Jiang Zhao still look serious, waiting to see what Xiao Siye will do.
However, the more he looked at it, the more shocked he was, because every card of Xiao Siye seemed to be like a divine help. Before long, before the others even started listening to the cards, Xiao Siye had already pushed the mahjong: “Sorry, all of them.”
Jiang Zhao’s relatives: “? ？”
In everyone’s shock, the mahjong machine put on another set of cards. This Xiao Siye is also the dealer. Jiang Zhaoi’s tiredness is completely blown away at this time, and he is ready to wait and see the performance of Xiao Syei’s hand.
But after touching the cards, he didn’t even look at Xiao Siye’s cards, and Xiao Siye suddenly pushed his cards:
Relatives: “…? ! ！”
Jiang Zhao: “… Shit? ！”
Even the attention of Mrs. Xu’s table was attracted by this side, and she leaned in to pay her respects to the legendary Tian Hu, while Xiao Siye was still sitting in his position, showing a calm smile:
“Maybe my luck today is a bit better.”
Jiang Zhao: “…”
It’s kind of nice for you to call this luck?
