Yao Ying and Yao Ling were in relief. Wang Luo Hai didn't blabber about her unique embroidery and it made them trust him more. They knew he's a good man, however, they just knew each other for a few months. Knowing a person's full characters in a few months was impossible.
They worked more diligent for him. And the result? Wang Luo Hai's embroidery store profits were tripled, even Wang Luo Hai was in awe. He took his whole life to achieve the profit and fame before Yao Ying came, but that youngster only took three months to achieve triple level.
Wang Luo Hai decided to give them an offer. "Yao Ying, Yao Ling… I want to talk to you both about something. Come with me!" The couple looked at each other in confusion but nonetheless followed him to the study room.
"I'd like to offer something to both of you. But before that, I will tell you something first. You've been in my house and you certainly know I have a wife and three concubines."
Yao Ying and Yao Ling nodded. They knew, but what it had to do with them?
"Have you ever seen kids there?"
They tried to remember, but indeed they never saw any kids running around.
Wang Luo Hai sighed, then explain further to them, "I have no kids. This is a big headache for me. I'm the only one left from Wang Family and it seems …. the problem lays on me. I'd never guessed that if one of my ex-concubine didn't cheat and easily get pregnant."
Yao Ying and Yao Ling were surprised Wang Luo Hai tell them this. Infertility was quite an embarrassment for a man and usually, people wouldn't admit it. The fault usually was thrown to the women instead. But why? It wasn't something easy to admit.
"I know you are confused why I tell you this embarrassing thing. I'd like to take you both as my children and become my successors. This is not a muddle-headed decision. I thought about it a lot for the past few weeks." He finally told them the reason.
Yao Ying and Yao Ling gaped at him in confusion. "But why?" Yao Ying asked.
"I'm not stupid. I know both of your talents, but it's not the main thing. I have a lot of talented underlings, though they weren't as outstanding as you. But, I admire both of your personalities. I can see both of you are dedicated and hardworking. The most important thing is honesty.
You might not realize it. Although I give you the right to maintain the whole things, I still have my people here and there reported to me about both of your conduct. I like you both and I hope you agree." Wang Luo Hai explained.
"But… won't your family make it difficult?"
Wang Luo Hai brushed it off. "Don't worry! They won't. I have my ways." In Wang Luo Hai's mind, what use of his wealth and legacy if he didn't have any descendant? If he gave it to his wife and concubines, certainly fight would break out and also… they didn't have any business skill. They would only destroy his hard work.
Yao Ying and Yao Ling exchanged meaningful gaze. Both of them liked and respected this old man and this was a great chance for them to build their foundation. Both of them agreed.
After he received their agreement, Wang Luo Hai laughed merrily. "Yao Ying, you can call me Father and Yao Ling can call me Father-in-law. From this moment on, Yao Ying can take my surname, Wang. Wang Yao Ying."
The couple smiled happily and thanking him. "Thank you, Father."
"Thank you, Father-in-law."
"From this moment on, don't stay outside anymore. Stay with me in my house." Wang Luo Hai wasn't going to take no for an answer and they could only agree. They moved on the same day.
Just like what the couple predicted, the main wife and the concubines didn't like how they became Wang Luo Hai's stepchildren. They looked at the couple in contempt.
Yao Ying and Yao Ling had great mental strength, so they paid them no mind. As long as they didn't bother them, they would do nothing. The couple respected Wang Luo Hai and they weren't going to mess with his family. They didn't even want to monopolize his wealth, because of his blind trust to them.
They already told Wang Luo Hai about this. They would still work like how they used to – under him. They knew their own place.
When the night came, they came back to their previous room they'd occupied in this household – the simple guestroom. They didn't want to flaunt their luck and make enemies with the women in the house.
"Do you think this is the right choice? I don't feel comfortable receiving this much kindness." Yao Ling asked.
"Me too. Father is a good man and a clever one. I think he also has his own calculation. We should just do our job like before."
Yao Ling nodded. "I notice Madam Wang and the three concubines' look to us. It won't be peaceful in this household. I'm afraid we already make enemies."
"As long as they don't bother us, we should do nothing. But if they do something, then don't blame us for being ruthless."
"I agree. I'm not a nice person. If they do something to us or Father, I don't mind giving them a lesson," Yao Ling laughed.
They had been very busy for the last three months, so at night, they didn't have the time to think about their relationship. They just went to bed and directly sleep together in each other's embrace. It became a habit and the shyness had been gone.
"Husband… I'm tired. Hug me please…." Yao Ling asked for a nice warm hug from Yao Ying without shame anymore. She opened her arms and looked at him with big cute eyes.
Yao Ying could only shake his head at his spoiled wife. Lately, she showed him her childish side more and more; she's cute. Without hesitating, he quickly pulled her up and embraced her, then he took her to bed.
He looked down at her red lips and gulped. He wanted to kiss her for a long time but didn't dare to do so. However, under the soft candlelight, she looked so alluring.
'Just a kiss is okay, right? It's not like he consummates the marriage?' Yao Ling thought to himself.
Without another thought, he captured her lips with a kiss. When she gasped in surprise, he quickly entered her mouth with his tongue. Yao Ling eyes widened in surprise when she felt his tongue entered her mouth, but she didn't resist. She closed her eyes and kissed him back sloppily. It seemed like both of them didn't have any practice in this field.
Sometimes their teeth would collide, but they didn't stop. They finally stopped when they ran out of breath, panting.
"Did you enjoy it, Wife?" Yao Ying teased his wife.
Yao Ling blushed slightly and quickly hid under the quilt. Yao Ying couldn't hold back his laughter. His fiery little wife really aroused her. After tucked her in bed and kissed her forehead, he left.
Before he left, Yao Ling asked him, "Where are you going this late at night?"
He grinned at her, "Cold shower."
Yao Ling hid in embarrassment again because she knew what he meant. "Go quickly!"
Without a second thought, Yao Ying did just that. Ah…. Three months left! He was pretty sure when the time came, he would become a beast and eat his little wife!
