As soon as they arrived at the Shen’s house, they heard an unfamiliar female voice from inside. When they walked in, they found that there seemed to be a guest at the house. A girl was sitting on the sofa, with long hair, slightly curly at the ends, and delicate features. She looked knowledgeable and dignified and also had a generous appearance.

Seeing Shen Qinglan and Fu Hengyi come in, Chu Yunrong smiled, “This is your Uncle Zhang’s daughter, Zhang Hui. Your Uncle Zhang is your father’s comrade-in-army, Xiao Hui just came back from abroad today and come to see your grandfather at home.”

Then she turned to look at Zhang Hui, “This is my youngest daughter Qinglan, and this is my son-in-law Fu Hengyi.”

Zhang Hui was very surprised, as she had not expected that the daughter of the Shen family would be married to the young master of the Fu family. Although surprised, there was still a dignified and generous smile on her face, “Hello.”

“Hello.” Shen Qinglan said lightly, and Fu Hengyi just glanced at the other party and did not speak.

Zhang Hui naturally knew Fu Hengyi, and had heard a bit of his character, so she didn’t care about his attitude, but Shen Qinglan made her a little surprised.

She knew that the Shen family still had a daughter, but this daughter was usually low-key and didn’t like to appear in front of people. There were a lot of speculations about this daughter in the capital before. Now, it seemed that this daughter of the Shen family was a little different from the rumours. Her temperament and this appearance… She looked at Shen Xitong, who had been sitting on the side and didn’t talk much, very meaningfully.

Shen Qinglan looked at the bored Shen Junyu sitting next to Zhang Hui, and seemed to understand something, then a smile flashed in her eyes.

Shen Junyu looked at his younger sister with even more helplessness in his eyes.

“Qinglan, Hengyi, you are back.” Shen Qian came in from the outside, with mud on his hands, it seemed that he was helping the old man with the work in the greenhouse.

“Dad.” Shen Qinglan and Fu Hengyi called.

Shen Qian smiled and went to the bathroom to wash his hands first.

The old man Shen came downstairs with a few couplets and saw Fu Hengyi, “Hengyi, you are here just in time, Junyu, you two go and post the couplets.”

Fu Hengyi had no objection, so he stood up, but Shen Junyu saw the old man like seeing a saviour, “Grandpa, I’ll do it right away.”

Shen Qinglan looked amused, she glanced at Zhang Hui out of the corner of her eyes, and saw that she had no strange expression on her face, she was still chatting and laughing with Chu Yunrong, and her beautiful eyes flashed.

During lunch, Shen Qinglan sat down, Fu Hengyi sat on her left, Shen Junyu was about to sit on her right, but was stopped by Chu Yunrong.

“Junyu, sit here.” Chu Yunrong pointed to an empty seat.

Shen Junyu looked at it and found that the position was next to Zhang Hui, and her mother had really spared no effort to match him and Zhang Hui.

Shen Junyu had always been a filial person, Chu Yunrong had spoken, so he naturally would not refute, so he sat down according to her words, and even the gentle smile on his face did not change.

Chu Yunrong was very satisfied. While eating, she kept hinting to Shen Junyu to serve Zhang Hui some food, and Shen Junyu just pretended that he didn’t understand it.

Fu Hengyi sat between Shen Qinglan and Shen Qian, and said a few words to Shen Qian from time to time. Both of them were soldiers. Although they belonged to different military regions, they shared a lot of common topics and chatted very speculatively.

While chatting, Fu Hengyi did not forget to peel shrimp for Shen Qinglan. She liked to eat shrimp, but she thought that peeling shrimp was too troublesome, so she would rather not eat it on weekdays.

Shen Qinglan ate the shrimp that Fu Hengyi put in her bowl. It was very natural. Obviously, this was not the first time. Except for Shen Xitong, everyone in the Shen family noticed this, and were satisfied, Fu Hengyi seemed more pleasing to their eyes, even to Chu Yunrong, although it was regrettable that Fu Hengyi was not with Shen Xitong, but she was sincerely happy to see that her little daughter was living well now.

Zhang Hui also noticed the tacit cooperation between the two with a little surprise in her heart. She glanced at Shen Qinglan, the daughter of the Shen family, she seemed to have a higher status in Fu Hengyi’s heart than she thought.

While surprised, there was also a touch of envy in her eyes. Out of the corner of her eyes, she glanced at the man sitting beside her. The light in her eyes faded. For a family like theirs, it was too extravagant to talk about love.

The most unhappy person in this meal was Shen Xitong. Looking at the two people who were constantly showing their love, her teeth were about to bite her lips.

Another uncomfortable person was probably Shen Junyu, Chu Yunrong was deliberately trying to match him with Zhang Hui, the smile on his face was still the same, but the smile in his eyes had become less and less, until it disappeared.

After the meal, Zhang Hui bid farewell in a timely manner.

“Auntie, I will go back first, I have something to do at home. I will come to see you next time when I have time.”

Chu Yunrong smiled, “Okay, come here often when you have time.”

Zhang Hui smiled and nodded, “I will definitely come to disturb you often. I just hope that Auntie doesn’t dislike me when the time comes.”

This sentence made Chu Yunrong smile, and she asked Shen Junyu, who was sitting on the side, motionless, “Junyu, Xiao Hui is going back, you can send her off.”

Shen Junyu stood up and sent Zhang Hui out of the house. He was polite and gentlemanly all the way, but he was too gentlemanly, too polite, making Zhang Hui feel that the person standing in front of her was a mountain, and she could only look up to him but not climb over.

“Miss Zhang, do you need me to call a car for you?” Shen Junyu asked gently.

“Thank you, I’ll just go myself.” Zhang Hui refused with a smile, even though she could feel Shen Junyu’s slight alienation towards her.

Shen Junyu was very kind, he did not leave immediately, but stood there and watched her get into the car before entering.

Zhang Hui looked at Shen Junyu’s back from the rear-view mirror, the smile on her face disappeared, and there was only calmness on her good-looking face. She came to Shen family home this time, but she didn’t do it voluntarily. Her father and brother all served in the military. If they could have a relationship with the Shen family, then her brother would definitely be able to go further. Knowing that the eldest young master of the Shen family, Shen Junyu, was still single, her mother had the idea of marrying her with Shen Junyu.

Originally, she didn’t plan to come back this New Year. She was specially called back by her mother, and the reason was naturally to be able to meet Shen Junyu and get in touch with Shen Junyu during the Chinese New Year.

But now it seemed that the situation was not very ideal, she had a touch of regret in her heart, as her first impression of Shen Junyu was still very good.

When Shen Junyu returned home, Chu Yunrong was sitting in the living room waiting for him. When she saw that he was going upstairs, she stopped him, “Junyu, come and talk to your mother for a while.”

Shen Junyu stopped and looked at his mother but didn’t walked over and said, “Mom, I’ll go up and handle some company affairs.”

“Now that you’re on vacation, what business do you need to take care off? Come and sit with your mother for a while.”

Shen Junyu looked at Shen Qian, who was sitting on the sofa, like he had nothing to do with him. And his dear sister and brother-in-law, who didn’t even give a single glance to him.

Really a bunch of unloving family members.

Shen Junyu sat down on the sofa and Chu Yunrong looked at him with a smile, “What do you think of Zhang Hui?”

She was really direct, Shen Junyu thought it was funny.

“Isn’t she the daughter of my father’s comrade-in-army? She came to see my father today. I think it doesn’t matter if she is good or not.” Shen Junyu also practiced Tai Chi.

Chu Yunrong rolled her eyes at him, “Don’t pretend to be confused, I won’t believe you don’t know what I’m talking about.”

Shen Junyu smiled a little roguishly, “Mom, I really don’t understand what you’re talking about.”

“Then I’ll talk to you directly. Let’s be honest, you’ve grown up now, your sister is already married, so you should also put this important life event on the agenda. I like Zhang Hui, she is a good girl, what do you think?”

Shen Junyu spread his hands, “A man stands at his thirties, I’m not yet thirty. So what’s the hurry.”

Chu Yunrong was in a hurry, “You will be thirty after the new year.”

“Mom.” Shen Junyu changed her words, “Are you in a hurry to hug your grandson?”

Chu Yunrong: “…” When did she say she wanted to hug her grandson.

“But look, Mom, you’re so busy right now that you don’t have time to hug your grandson.”

“If you really give me a grandson, I’ll stay home and to take care of my grandson. The question is not if I want it, but whether you want it?” Chu Yunrong said calmly, Shen Junyu choked, he really didn’t want this.

“Mom, brother is so good, there is no girl who won’t like him, you don’t have to worry about it.” Shen Xitong peeled an orange and handed it to Chu Yunrong.

Chu Yunrong took it with a smile, “Zhang Hui is a very good girl, and the two families know each other well. What’s wrong with her?”

“Mom, no matter how good a girl is, it’s not someone your son likes.”

“Then tell your mother who you like.” Chu Yunrong took the opportunity to ask, it didn’t matter if he didn’t like Zhang Hui, as long as her son could say it, it meant there was still hope.

Hearing the words, Shen Junyu blinked, met his mother’s expectant expression, and spread his hands, “As your son, I am so good, can an average girl deserve it?”

Chu Yunrong: “…”

Shen Qinglan: “… “

Fu Hengyi, “…”

This sounded a bit familiar, he glanced at Shen Qinglan, and a smile flashed in his eyes.

“Dad, look at Junyu.” Chu Yunrong threw the question to old man Shen. If you don’t listen to your mother, then you must listen to your grandfather.

The old man Shen was here, and he never liked to intervene in the affairs of the younger generation, but since his daughter-in-law had spoken, he had to express his attitude, “Junyu, your mother is right, you are not too young, look at Lan Lan. She is already married, and Xitong has started going on blind dates, so you should also hurry up.”

“Understood, Grandpa, I’ll get to know Miss Zhang someday.” Shen Junyu responded with a smile, but the words were partly sincere and partly fake, it was up to him how he would do it.

Shen Xitong was just sitting quietly, but when she was suddenly mentioned by the old man Shen, and it was even the last thing she wanted him to say, the smile on her face became a little stiff.
