545 You are not allowed to scare my future daughter-in-law.
"Oh, by the way, hubby…"
While the two were having lunch, the man's parents were also having lunch at home.
They sat before a long table, and after sipping a spoonful of soup, Mother Ji seemed to recall something.
At his wife's voice, Father Ji lifted his head. "What's the matter?"
"I forgot to tell you that, from today onward, our precious son will officially cohabit with Ge Ge!" she happily announced.
Frightened by the news, the chopsticks in the middle-aged man's hand fell on the table with a clatter.
"What?!" he exclaimed with wide eyes.
"Ming Ming is going to stay with that woman of unknown origin?!"
The wife was displeased at her husband's reaction. What did he mean by 'woman of unknown origin'?!
She snorted lightly and replied with distaste, "What are you saying?! Ge Ge is not a woman of unknown origin, all right?! How many times must I tell you that she's Love's savior!"Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
The husband was momentarily at a loss on how to deal with his wife. Calming his nerves, he said, "All right. Let's say that she's not a woman of unknown origin, but… how can you let our son stay with her?! That woman is very scheming!"
He thought to himself, I know my son well; he's not the type to cohabit with a girl he's not married yet.
He was just thinking that their son got bewitched by a scheming woman when his wife quickly disproved it.
"What?! Ge Ge is such a kind and innocent girl. What schemes?! It's my idea for them to cohabit." Mother Ji snorted in displeasure at her husband's ill thoughts about their son's girlfriend.
"What?! Honey, why did you do that?!" He was stunned by her words.
He knew that his wife favored their son's girlfriend, but… he did not expect that it was to this extent!
"What did I do?!" She felt wronged when his tone turned fierce. "What are you getting fierce for?! I may have suggested it, but do you think our precious son will agree to anything if he doesn't want to?!"
Seeing the indignation of his wife, he promptly softened his tone to appease her.
"Honey, it's my mistake; don't get angry."
"Hmph! It's your fault for acting so fierce with me!" Her anger came and went fast. Once her husband softened his voice, the feelings of injustice in her dissipated as well.
"Yes, yes, yes. It's my fault. Don't be mad now." He consoled his wife without any reservations or the coldness that he had when with others.
"You're not allowed to talk bad about Ge Ge!" She took this chance to suggest that.
"Honey…" He sighed helplessly. The man was about to say something else when she interrupted.
"I know what you want to say. You think that Ge Ge could be after our family's background, but you shouldn't discount our son's charm!" she said in all seriousness.
"Yes, Ge Ge's family may not be rich and can't compare to our family's wealth, but she is not like what you think. I know that that lass has a kind temperament and strong values! Whatever it is, I won't let you speak ill of her!"
A bitter smile formed helplessly on the middle-aged man's face.
"Honey, I know that you like this Pei Ge, but… you need to spend time with someone to know their true nature and intentions. It's not right to judge someone at first glance.
"Did you forget that woman? She's still young back then and even saved our son's life, but who knew that…"
She was stunned for a moment and then pursed her lips.
"I wasn't fooled by her even then. I disliked her from the very start. It just proves that my judgment is accurate!"
Seeing how smug she was, he shook his head wryly and said gently, "Yes, yes, yes. You are the smartest person in our house."
"That's right! So, you're forbidden from saying such things about Ge Ge and from comparing her to that woman!" She stared at him seriously.
"Honey, we only have Ming Ming. Can't we be so arbitrary? If she's really a good woman, then whatever I say won't matter." He looked helplessly at his wife who had apparently accepted their son's girlfriend as her future daughter-in-law.
"It's not about what you say; it's your attitude that is the problem! You're already biased about her from the get-go!" She pouted at him.
"In what way am I bias—" His wife did not allow him to defend himself.
"Enough. At the end of the day, you have yet to meet Ge Ge. I'll invite her to our house for a meal this weekend. That way, you can see for yourself what type of girl she is!" she declared with finality.
She initially wanted to wait for some time to pass before inviting their son's girlfriend over, but who knew that her husband's reaction toward that lass would be this big? As such, she had to push forward her plans.
"For a meal?" Was that woman from goodness knew where worthy of sharing a meal with the Ji family as their daughter-in-law?
Naturally, he only dared to think of this and not speak of it to his wife.
"Of course, it is set! When the time comes, you're forbidden from scaring my future daughter-in-law! If you lose your temper, I tell you, you won't be allowed to step into my house!" She looked at him seriously; her tone suggested that she was not at all kidding.
His face turned somber at that.
Not only has that woman of unknown origin succeeded in hooking my son, she also managed to enchant my beloved wife!
Poor Pei Ge. She had not even met Father Ji yet, but his impression of her had already hit rock bottom.
