Xiao Chennan brought Vera to his car after they were done with breakfast.
Vera was very puzzled and she hurriedly asked, &x201C;Where are we going now?
&x201C;We are going somewhere&x2026;where I wanted to bring you long ago,&x201D; Xiao Chennan did not say anything but he simply decided to keep it a surprise.
Vera did not ask him anything much because she trust in Xiao Chennan. So, she simply put on her seat belt in a calm manner.
The both of them returned to the city area in Luo City. As they drove through the noisy and bustling street, they finally parked in front of an old fashioned residential complex.
The buildings in this area was very old and there were not many people in this area. It seemed as though the surrounding buildings had the word &x2018;demolition&x2019; written all over it.
&x201C;Yes, this is where I used to live during my earlier days. After finding out about what my uncle did, my mother kept clamoring to move back here. I cannot even stop her,&x201D; Xiao Chennan explained as he leaned against the car door. &x201C;You have already met my uncle, that bastard. After getting threatened by Yuning the other day, he quickly ran away from Luo City the next day. I think he is hiding in a city quite far away from here right now. I am bringing you here to meet my mother today.&x201D;
&x201C;Why didn&x2019;t you tell me about this earlier? How can I come empty handed to see your mother? Isn&x2019;t it a little too rude? Furthermore, I am afraid that your mother will dislike me.&x201D;
Vera was panicking at this time.
Xiao Chennan took this opportunity to hold Vera&x2019;s hand before he said calmly, &x201C;I have already told my mother in advance that I did not tell you that I will be bringing you here to see her today. She will not be so calculative and blame you for anything. Besides that, she also knows that you have already helped me a lot in my career. So, trust me when I say that she will definitely like you.&x201D;
Since they had already arrived at the front door, it would also be impolite for her not to go into the house.
In the end, Vera could only glare at Xiao Chennan because he did not discuss such an important matter with her.
&x201C;I was afraid that you will run away again. Therefore, I must try to make sure that you will settle down early.&x201D;
As soon as Vera heard these words from Xiao Chennan, she could not help but feel a little less frightened and much more relieved. Therefore, Vera simply took a deep breath before she followed closely behind Xiao Chennan as they walked up the stairs.
Was she about to meet the parent now?
Vera&x2019;s feet was already feeling a little tired and heavy after they walked all the way up to the fourth floor. As soon as the door was opened, a fat woman with a loving smile on her face hurried forward and grabbed Vera&x2019;s hand directly.
&x201C;Come in, Vera. Come in!&x201D;
After she was done speaking, the woman pointed her finger at Xiao Chennan before she said, &x201C;You, stand outside! I want you to reflect on your own actions today. You almost made me lose my future daughter-in-law.&x201D;
Vera could not help but chuckled and laughed out loud at this time. After all, it was really rare for her to see the man standing next to her getting beaten up.
Xiao Chennan could only rub his nose gently before he stood outside the door as instructed.
&x201C;You don&x2019;t need to feel distressed because of him. This is the way that I have been educating him ever since he was a child. Since he is already a mature adult now, he have to think even more clearly in future! How can he ask to break up just because he wanted to do so? If it was any other girl, she would have already left a long time ago!&x201D;
Xiao Chennan&x2019;s mother took Vera&x2019;s hand before she led her to sit down on the sofa.
Their house was not very big but it felt very warm and comfortable inside. Moreover, there was also the fragrance of flowers inside the entire living room.
Since Xiao Chennan had nothing much to do in recent years, she had simply been busy raising some potted plants and flowers and doing embroidery in her own house.
&x201C;Vera, have you been working hard lately?&x201D; Xiao Chennan&x2019;s mother asked as she held tightly onto Vera&x2019;s hand. Because she was already old, her hands was already covered in lines and wrinkles.
&x201C;No, it is not that bad.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay.&x201D; Xiao Chennan&x2019;s mother could not help but sighed after listening to Vera&x2019;s words. &x201C;Out of the Xiao family members, Xiao Chennan&x2019;s father and his younger brother left this world just like that. Therefore, I do not have a lot of expectations for Chennan. I am happy as long as he is healthy and happy. However, my younger brother is really very irresponsible. He did not only try to hurt me but he also implicated the younger generation in the process. I really feel very bad and guilty because of this matter. Fortunately, your relationship is strong and firm enough. That is why the both of you can still get back together even after you broke up. Otherwise, what would my stupid son have done?&x201D;
&x201C;He has already been in the entertainment industry for many years and there has been several scandals surrounding him in the past. However, the only person that he has ever talked about and confessed his love to is none other than you. Therefore, I really believe that you are the only person that he has ever loved in this life. Perhaps, you might even be the first person that he has ever loved.&x201D;
&x201C;The reason why I am punishing him and asking him to reflect on his own actions just because I want him to understand and learn how to cherish someone that is so precious to him. I do not want him to lose you so casually. After all, sometimes, when you lose someone, you will never be able to get them back no matter what you do&x2026;&x201D;
Vera knew that Xiao Chennan&x2019;s mother was probably thinking of Xiao Chennan&x2019;s father and younger brother as she talked about this.
Therefore, she quickly assured and comforted Xiao Chennan&x2019;s mother, &x201C;Auntie, don&x2019;t worry. I will not leave him. I promise to stay by his side forever.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay&x2026;&x201D; Xiao Chennan&x2019;s mother turned around and wiped the tears off her face before she said, &x201C;Stinky brat! Come in. You are preparing dinner tonight. I want to have a good chat with my daughter-in-law. I have no time to talk to you.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay, sure!&x201D; Xiao Chennan agreed without any resistance at all. After all, the two women sitting in the living room right now were the two persons that he cared the most about in this world.
&x201C;Come, Vera. I will bring you to see Chennan&x2019;s room&x2026;&x201D;
Vera could only look at Xiao Chennan helplessly as she thought: Sorry baby. Thank you for your hard work today.
Xiao Chennan nodded at her slightly before he gestured for her to go. He would definitely serve his wife and mother well today.
In fact, Vera was very excited to see how Xiao Chennan would be preparing food at home.
Xiao Chennan&x2019;s room was not very big and it was filled with all the standard equipment like what any children from any other ordinary family would have. The things that he used to enjoy were also sports and cartoon, just like every other kid.
There was also a group photo of Xiao Chennan and his father and younger brother on the bookshelf. As soon as she looked at the picture, Vera could not help but exclaimed, &x201C;Brother Chennan and his younger brother really look alike.&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, they are brothers so it is inevitable that they resemble one another. Fortunately, Chennan had many good memories with his brother when they were younger. Otherwise, I really do not know how he is going to live. Vera, I believe that you will definitely have very beautiful children after you get married.&x201D;
Vera did not think too much for the time being. However, since she had already met with his parent, then she did not even mind settling down, getting married and having children with Xiao Chennan.
The both of them sat down as they continued chatting about all the fun and interesting things that Xiao Chennan did as a child. It was only at this time that Vera realized that Xiao Chennan was not always as calm and composed as he was now. There was also a time when he was very naughty and mischievous.
He has always been a very bright and active boy when they were a family of four.
However, the responsibilities on his shoulders became heavier as soon as his father and brother left this world.
This was because he wanted to live well for them.
At this time in the kitchen, the man was very proficient as he got busy working on the stove.
Vera never knew that the film emperor, Xiao Chennan would actually be able to cook such good dishes.
In fact, this was all honed because he wanted to take care of his mother. Moreover, it was this simple daily routine that made Vera feel that he was extremely down to earth and practical.
If a man was willing to cook for you, wouldn&x2019;t you be rest assured that he really wanted to spend the rest of his life with you?
In future, she also wanted to live a happy and ordinary life such as this together with Xiao Chennan. She would always want to be the woman standing behind him.
Xiao Chennan simply prepared a simple homely meal but Vera felt as though this was the warmest and tastiest meal that she has ever tasted in her life.
Since Xiao Chennan&x2019;s mother was also very kind and easy to get along with, Vera felt very confident about her future with Xiao Chennan.
Later that afternoon, the both of them left the house together. However, they did not expect the paparazzi who had been tailing Xiao Chennan&x2019;s car to secretly take a picture of the both of them stepping out of Xiao Chennan&x2019;s mother&x2019;s house.
The paparazzi did not know that Vera has already cut her hair short.
Therefore, they assumed that Xiao Chennan had a new lover.
