He had wondered if he should invite his mother along.
While he had hesitated over his options, Zhuang Nai Nai had thrown a temper tantrum, hands on her waist and her lips pursed, “Si Zheng Ting! If you won’t meet my mom, I will ignore you!”
‘I will ignore you’ was a threat that Zhuang Nai Nai frequently used.
But everytime she said that, she would add it with, ‘For five minutes!’
If she was really angry, it would be for 20 minutes.
This time, she did not give him a timeline.
For once, she actually kept to her promise. Although she did everything with him, from walking together to eating together, she did not say a single word to him.
Even if she did want to speak to him, she would say it to Su Yan Bin first, “Su Yan Bin, tell that Si Zheng Ting…..”
The expression on her face was cute, but cruel.
In the end, Si Zheng Ting could only compromise. Before going to school, he had tried on a couple of clothes and in the end chose to wear the one that looked the best despite getting laughed at by Ding Mengya.
After school, both of them walked out of the school compound together. Si Zheng Ting walked towards his car while Zhuang Nai Nai waved him goodbye. When she turned around to walk back to her house, she felt him tugging her in the arm.
She turned around in surprise, only to see him looking at her expressionlessly, “Didn’t you say we are going to meet your mother?”
Zhuang Nai Nai’s eyes lighted up.
When she looked at his car, she shook her head in disapproval, “My house is in the poorer side of the city. Your car is too eye-catching. Let’s use public transportation.”
Si Zheng Ting: …………..
That was his first time using the public transportation.
She dragged him to the train station and rummaged through her purse for some coins. Then, she went to the counter to buy tickets. He helped carry her school bag and waited for her to return. She looked very happy, strutting around as though she was about to take flight.
He wore custom made clothes and had to squeeze with her inside the train, but he did not feel unhappy at all.
When they reached her house, he looked around in surprise.
Even a dog’s house should look better than this…..
He originally expected her mother to be a regular middle-aged lady, but in the end, even he was taken by surprise.
Zhuang Mama was not what one might consider beautiful, in fact, if one puts her in a crowd, she would not stand out. Since she had to work really hard, she looked at least 20 years older than his own mother.
Despite all that, she had her own charm. She spoke very warmly, neither fast nor slow. She also carried a certain grace that set her apart from other aunties her age.
Zhuang Nai Nai had a very good relationship with her mother. She hugged her and started spouting off all the things that happened at school today. In turn, her mother smiled lovingly at everything she said.
Zhuang Nai Nai immediately forgot about him the moment she saw her mother. She forgot about his existence for a full five minute. He remembered standing in the doorway awkwardly, not entering but not leaving either. It was Zhuang mama who reminded Nai Nai about his presence there.
Because of that, his first impression of Zhuang Mama was very good.
Later, when Zhuang Nai Nai walked him home, he remembered feeling sour.
That was his first time falling in love and he had invested a lot of feelings in it. He remembered feeling like a foolish schoolboy as he asked her, “Who is more important to you? Me or your mother?”
