The Little Princess’s Married-in Boyfriend (9)
He waited until she was tossed about.
Then Xu Menggui stopped the car, saying with a worried look, “Are you okay? Weiwei.”
Bai Weiwei had a pale face, but she looked at Xu Menggui with an exhilarated look.
“You’re amazing. You can drive so fast.”
Some surprise flickered in Xu Menggui’s eyes.
He’d thought this eldest young miss would be crying in fear and crying out to go home.
Bai Weiwei suddenly looked a bit glum. “Xiao Meng, will you take me somewhere?”
Xu Menggui: Don’t call me Xiao Meng!
Of course, he couldn’t say a word of protest and could only endure and obey. “Go where? I’ll take you wherever.”
Bai Weiwei smiled happily. “You’re a bit old-fashioned and frank, but very likeable.”
With that, she got out of the car, not paying any mind to Xu Menggui’s expression.
And entered a flower shop along the street.
The flower shop had glass windows, and he saw Bai Weiwei lower her head to pick the flowers.
Rarely did the capricious and ignorant eldest young miss have such a gentle appearance.
Through the glass.
The person was more charming than the flowers.
Xu Menggui’s gaze darkened. He took out a cigarette but didn’t smoke it, just fiddling with it between his fingers.
His phone suddenly rang. He picked it up and heard the person on the other end saying they were ready.
He smiled coldly. “Good. Wait for my instructions.”
When he finished speaking, he hung up the phone.
Bai Weiwei emerged with a bouquet of white lilies.
She got in the car, then said, “Let’s go.”
Xu Menggui asked, “Go where?”
Bai Weiwei said softly, “Qingtian1 Cemetery.”
This cemetery was the best in the city.
Xu Menggui didn’t expect they would go to this place.
He’d thought that Bai Weiwei would want to go to a hotel or the like, somewhere she wouldn’t normally be able to enter.
The two arrived at the cemetery.
Bai Weiwei came up to her mother’s tombstone and placed down the flowers.
“My mom left me very early, but I still remember she was very gentle and beautiful.”
Bai Weiwei crouched in front of the tombstone, smiling somewhat sorrowfully as she spoke.
“My dad loves me, but he’s always working and can’t keep me company. I’ve been living alone the whole time.”
Tears welled up as she spoke, and she hastily wiped them away. Her voice grew hoarse.
“Even if I wanted to see my mom, my dad won’t let me. He’s afraid I’ll be kidnapped.”
Xu Menggui’s mood was a bit complicated. To say it was pity wasn’t right.
To say it was hate also didn’t seem right.
Perhaps it was that, when he saw Bai Weiwei’s fragile state, he recalled his childhood self.
He’d also been abandoned, having nothing at all.
Of course, this mood only flashed past. It didn’t affect his rational judgement.
Bai Weiwei rubbed her eyes and returned to her normal appearance. “Hold my hand.”
Xu Menggui didn’t resist. He held her hand and was pulled down to squat beside her.
Bai Weiwei revealed a brilliant, happy smile. “Mom, this is Xiao Meng, the husband I chose. I brought him to see you.”
Xu Menggui, caught off guard, felt the words strike his heart.
His mind even blanked for several seconds.
Because he hadn’t expected that she’d come to the cemetery just to introduce him to her mother.
Her hand tightly gripped his fingers.
She turned her face to look at him, her eyes full of a smile. “Xiao Meng, I’ve scared you by introducing you to my mom, but now that I’ve chosen you, you can’t run away.”
It was overbearing and willful, as well as too cute to be hateful.
Xu Menggui didn’t know why he evaded her gaze.
Then he used his strong sense of reason to suppress his uncontrollable emotions and feign an affectionate smile.
Then he said insincerely, “I’m really, really happy that you chose me.”
Although it was a lie, he suddenly realized that he didn’t find Bai Weiwei to be so disgusting.

1: 青填墓园: green-filled cemetery?? I suppose Viridescent or Verdant Cemetery would be an okay-ish term, but they don’t sound nice LOL.↩
