“My son, I’ll listen to you. Let’s go see that vixen.” Madame Chen said excitedly.
Since it was Ning Meng Yao, she would definitely choose to be an official’s wife, so Madame Chen wasn’t worried at all.
When the mother and son came to Qiao Tian Chang’s home, everyone was almost done eating. Looking at the guests talking and laughing while they helped to tidy up the place, Madame Chen’s eyes flashed disdain. What a shameful sight.
Seeing the mother and son coming over, everyone felt a little curious. All of them had the same question in their heart, what were these two doing here?
Yang Huai looked at Qiao Tian Chang; His good-looking face showed a sense of annoyance: “Qiao Tian Chang, why did you curse me?”
“My mother said that you cursed me to never be able to pass the palace examination and become the top scorer.” Yang Huai’s face was annoyed and his eyes were cold.
Qiao Tian Chang sneered at Yang Huai, his eyes were full of ridicule: “Are you here to blame me? So what if I said that? There are so many students in the world, and everyone wants to be the top scorer. Just because you want to be one, doesn’t mean that you’ll actually be able to achieve it.”
“That’s true. If it was so easy to be a top scorer, the old scholar from the next village wouldn’t just remain a scholar who only passed the college examinations at the age of 60.” This sentence caused the guests nearby to whisper to each other.
They agreed that Qiao Tian Chang’s words were right. It really wasn’t easy to be a top scorer. Only those exceptionally knowledgeable were able to make it.
Yang Huai glanced at him and said sternly: “You can’t marry Meng Yao.”
“Can’t marry? Who do you think you are to tell me that I can’t marry Meng Yao?” Qiao Tian Chang looked at Yang Huai and feeling flabbergasted.
Yang Huai’s expression shone a little before he opened his mouth slightly: “Because she will become my wife.”
The people around them were wide-eyed; they stared at Yang Huai as if they had seen a ghost.
Is there a problem with this person’s brain? Those two had already decided to get engaged, yet he dared to say such a thing.
“Did the both of you sign a marriage contract?”
“Have you gone through a matchmaker for a marriage proposal?” Qiao Tian Chang smiled at Yang Huai whose face was getting darker.
Yang Huai’s face was indeed dark. He was speechless, but everyone already knew that he had nothing to say.
“I want to see Ning Meng Yao. You’re in no position to decide who she wants to marry.” Yang Huai glared at Qiao Tian Chang.
He had to marry Ning Meng Yao so that his future would be smooth-sailing.
Ning Meng Yao was in her house when she heard Qing Xue bringing the men over.
“Ning Meng Yao, I won’t allow you to marry Qiao Tian Chang. You can only marry me.” Yang Huai said unceremoniously when he saw Ning Meng Yao walking towards them.
Ning Meng Yao looked at Yang Huai and mocked: “Have you not woken up yet?”
“Ning Meng Yao, I’ll become an official in the future, so you should consider your decision thoroughly.” Yang Huai threatened.
Ning Meng Yao sneered out loudly: “So what?”
Everyone looked at each other: What did she say? Did she just say “so what?”?
Yang Huai initially thought that this matter could be settled easily. However, it was the opposite which made his expression instantly become bad.
“Ning Meng Yao, do you really want to marry him?” Yang Huai pointed to Qiao Tian Chang and asked directly.
Tiredly stroking her forehead, Ning Meng Yao looked at him in pity: “Did you study too hard and lose your brain? To even ask this kind of question. Everyone in the village knows that Tian Chang and I are engaged today. I, Ning Meng Yao, am Qiao Tian Chang’s bride-to-be. You’re still a scholar, yet you dare to say such a thing. What do you think will happen if your school’s headmaster know about this? He might get very mad at you.”
“I, what? If you’re still not awake, you should go home and continue sleeping. Come back out when you’re finally awake. Don’t be an embarrassment here.” Ning Meng Yao’s words weren’t nice to hear. She stared at Yang Huai in mockery, especially at his facial expression that was mixed with anger and fear.
Yang Huai was furious. Originally, he had thought this was a simple matter. Who knew that such a twist for him would happen. It was just too shameful.
At this time, Qiao Tian Chang approached Ning Meng Yao and held her hand before saying coldly: “I’ll let you go this time. After all, you’re the future ‘top scorer’, but if you dare to harass my bride-to-be again, I can’t guarantee if you will be able to hold a brush next time.”
