“Okay, don’t stand at the door, come in.” Fang Chengzhi greeted and invited the few people into the room.

Only then did Fang Tong realize that Uncle Li’s family was here, but she didn’t see Li Boming.

It seemed that they understood her thoughts. Li Wei spoke first, “Boming left something in the car and went to get it.”

After being seated, Fang Tong got up and made tea for the guests. Yesterday, she saw the beautiful tea ceremony, and Fang Tong couldn’t help feeling a little ashamed when she saw the tea in the glass.

Fu Fanghua came out to say hello when several people entered the door, and then went to the kitchen again.

The doorbell rang again, and Fang Tong got up to open the door. She originally thought that the little fat man Li Boming would be standing outside the door, but when he opened the door, she found a tall, thin, gentleman with a handsome face and a pair of glasses on the bridge of his nose, “Excuse me. Who are you looking for?”

The man saw Fang Tong, smiled, and said, “Tongtong, we haven’t met for a few years.”

Fang Tong’s eyes widened, and she looked at him in disbelief, “Are you Fat Ming?” Fat Ming was the nickname Fang Tong gave Li Boming.

Li Boming smiled, “It’s rare that you still remember this nickname, but I’m not fat now.” He turned around in front of Fang Tong’s eyes.

Fang Tong sneered, now he was tall and handsome, and like his dad, he was a tall, rich and handsome man.

“Won’t ask me to come in and sit?” Li Boming looked at Fang Tong with a gentle smile.

Fang Tong was stunned for a moment, then turned around quickly and let Li Boming go in.

“Boming, did you recognize Tongtong when you saw her?” Li Wei laughed and asked his son.

Li Boming took a seat on the sofa and glanced at Fang Tong who was sitting opposite him, “She is still as beautiful as she was when she was a child, so I recognized her at a glance.”

Fang Tong’s face was a little red, she was very embarrassed, so she made an excuse and went into the kitchen. Others smiled kindly, only thinking she was shy.

“Tongtong, why did you come in?” Fu Fanghua saw Fang Tong and glanced outside the door, “Do you want something?”

“Mom, I’ll come in and help you.”

“You don’t need to cook, when you don’t know how to cook, you’re just causing trouble for me when you come in, so just go out.” Fu Fanghua refused, she didn’t have much work left, so she didn’t need help.

Fang Tong refused, “Then I can help you choose the dishes.”

Seeing her, even if she was reluctant to leave, Fu Fanghua was not reluctant.

In the living room, Fang Tong left, Fang Chengzhi smiled and explained, “Tongtong, this child is a little shy.”

Li Wei didn’t mind at all, “She is a girl. But Tongtong did got prettier as she grew, old Fang, Ah, you have raised a good daughter.” There was no lack of envy in his tone.

When he was young, he wanted to have a daughter, but after his wife gave birth to his son Li Boming, she suffered massive postpartum haemorrhage, injured her body, and could no longer bear children. She fell ill and died a few years later.

He married his current wife two years ago. Although she did not deliberately use contraception, she somehow couldn’t get pregnant. Over time, Li Wei stopped insisting.

“Has Boming graduated with a Ph.D. now?” Fang Chengzhi turned the topic to Li Boming.

Speaking of his son, the smile on Li Wei’s face became stronger, as his son was his greatest pride, “Yeah, he finished his credits ahead of schedule, so he came back to China, saying that he hadn’t celebrated Chinese New Year at home for several years, and this year he can finally come back to celebrate Chinese New Year with me.”

“If I remember correctly, Boming is only twenty-five years old this year, and he graduated with a Ph.D. at twenty-five. Old Li, you have raised a good son.”

Li Wei laughed even more. He was happy, seeing his son being praised by others was definitely the happiest thing for him, “But he is still not as good as your Tongtong.”

Li Boming, who was praised, always maintained a gentle smile on his face. Even when he was praised in public, there was no smugness in his eyes. Fang Chengzhi was more and more satisfied. Li Boming was his ideal son-in-law candidate.

“You can come over for dinner.” Fu Fanghua walked to the dining room with the dishes, and shouted for everyone to come for dinner.

When Li Boming came over, what he saw was Fang Tong helping her mother to serve the dishes, probably because the bowl was very hot. After placing the bowl on the table, she couldn’t help touching her earlobe with both hands. Same as when she was a kid.

“Sister-in-law, the dishes you cook are still so delicious.” Li Wei tasted the dishes and praised them.

Fu Fanghua smiled, “If you like it, eat more,” then she greeted Li Boming, “Boming, you also eat more, I haven’t seen you for a few years and don’t know if your taste has changed, so I just made it according to your childhood taste. If you have anything you want to eat, tell your aunt and I will make it for you.”

Li Boming smiled gently, “My taste hasn’t changed much, but I have eaten bread and milk all these years abroad. It’s really delicious to eat the food from my hometown.”

Fu Fanghua felt a little distressed, the year Li Boming went to study abroad happened to be the year his mother died, he was only seventeen years old and was still a child. And because he was abroad, he didn’t even see the last sight of his mother.

She also attended the funeral that year. Seeing the child who cried as if he had lost the whole world, Fu Fanghua only felt very distressed.

Eight years had passed in a blink of an eye, and Lao Li had already married a new person. Fu Fanghua glanced at Ji Ning. She had only met her once at the wedding two years ago.

“Sister-in-law, your craftsmanship is really good. Can you teach me another day? I also want to make it for Lao Li.” Ji Ning took the initiative to speak, with a sincere smile on her face.

A person could not hit a smiling face, since the other was being friendly, Fu Fanghua couldn’t shake her face at them. She smiled, “Of course I can. You can come play here when you have time.”

Looking at Boming, “Boming you also just treat this as your own home, and you should come to sit here often when you have time. I heard from your father that you plan to stay in the capital to work?”

Li Boming nodded, “Well, I’ve already been contacted, it’s the company of one of my former seniors, and I plan to train in his company for two years.”

“Why don’t you just go to your father’s company?” Fu Fanghua asked, thinking he was going to work at Li Wei’s branch in Beijing. .

Li Wei heard the words and said, “This stinky boy said that he can’t get real training in his own company, and he still hopes to go out to exercise for two years, and then come back to help me. If you want me to say, I won’t say that I’m your son. Ah.”

“The young people have their own ideas. Let’s go with them as adults, and Boming is a stable boy.” Fang Chengzhi said, he was right inside and out.

Li Boming smiled and did not explain, he naturally had a reason to do so.

“However.” Li Wei’s tone changed, “It’s fine if he’s in the capital, how close he was to Tongtong when he was a child, and now he’s in a city, so they can keep in touch with each other, they’re all young people, and they should have a companion when they go out on weekends.”

Fu Fanghua continued with a smile, “That’s right, our Tongtong is too introverted, and she hasn’t had a boyfriend yet, she doesn’t worry me and her dad at all.”
