Chapter 542: Beauty in the Eyes of the Beholder
After Qiao Yanjue hung up the phone, Qiao Zhengyuan looked at his wife with some grumbling. “You haven’t even cleared things up yet!”
Qiao Yanjue was now in his twenties, and it was time to put marriage on the agenda.
Although he was not in a hurry to get married, it was time to look for someone to fall in love with.
Now that he finally had some progress on his end, he was ridiculed by his own mother…
“What can we get out of him?” Liu Yiqin rolled her eyes at her husband. “It’s not like you don’t know your son’s temper!”
If he was willing to say it, he would have said it long ago.
If he didn’t want to say it, no one could force it out of him.
Qiao Zhengyuan was a bit sheepish after the rebuttal from his wife.
“Then what are you going to do?”
“Right!” Qiao Zhengyuan suddenly realized. “He is now living at Ah-Hong’s place. She’d know for sure!”
As soon as he said it, Liu Yiqin called Liu Manhong.
After the sisters checked in on each other, Liu Yiqin got straight to the point.
“Do you know who Yanjue likes?”
Liu Manhong’s heart jumped.
“What did he say to you?”
She had previously instructed Qiao Yanjue not to reveal Xia Xibei so quickly.
If Qiao Yanjue had put Xia Xibei out in the open, who knew how much trouble it would cause?
She didn’t want to make things difficult for Xia Xibei.
“He said he has someone he likes. I think, since he lives next to you, you would know who it is.”
Liu Manhong had always been very frank in front of her big sister. Now that she was asked, she was a little hesitant.
“You know her, right?” Liu Yiqin felt justified. She continued to ask, “I won’t ask too much, I just want to know, what is her personality like?”
“Hm…” Liu Manhong hesitated for a moment, but still said, “Don’t worry, she is great!”
Liu Yiqin froze for a moment. Even her own sister said so?
If it was Qiao Yanjue who said that, she could understand that beauty was in the eye of the beholder.
But if Liu Manhong said so, she had to wonder how fantastic the girl was.
Liu Yiqin knew her own sister and son well. They were not people who could be impressed so easily.
“How is she great?”
“Great in every way. She is a wonderful young woman. If you met her, you’d like her too.”
Liu Yiqin was stunned. The weight of these words was too heavy!
Was the girl really that good, or was she too shrewd at being a person?
“Where is the girl from?”
When it came to the point, Liu Manhong wouldn’t dare to say so much.
“Hm. Maybe wait for Yanjue to tell you! I have something to do over here!”
Liu Yiqin frowned but didn’t continue to press the issue.
“That’s fine, I’ll ask him then.”
After saying that, she hung up the phone.
Qiao Zhengyuan looked at her with an eager look from the side.
“What did Ah-Hong say?”
“She didn’t say anything to the point, just said that the girl was very nice.” Liu Yiqin’s expression was a bit serious. “So, I have decided to go over and take a look.”
“You’re going over there?” Qiao Zhengyuan was surprised.
“Yes. Who knows if the girl is really good or not? I have to go over there to see for myself.”
“I’m not an evil mother-in-law, I don’t plan to do anything. What are you afraid of?! Besides, that’s my son! Would I hurt him?”
As soon as his wife glared, Qiao Zhengyuan was cowed and could only mutter under his breath.
On the other end, after hanging up the phone, Liu Manhong frowned and pondered for a while. Finally, her expression suddenly changed, and she called Qiao Yanjue.
“What did you say to your mother?”
