Zhou Zhe's parents asked Chen Ruo out to dinner, Chen Ruo Yu thought that Zhou Zhe did not know, because he did not participate, nor did he give her a heads up. However, her mother knew about it because she called Chen Ruo Yu and said that Zhou Zhe's parents went to A city and for her to entertain them.
Why would she have to entertain Zhou Zhe's parents, what does it have to do with her? But Chen Ruo Yu didn't have time to protest, her doorbell rang, and the two elderly people who had nothing to do with her were standing outside her door.
Zhou Zhe's parents were very polite, saying that Zhou Zhe went out for business today. They didn't have any friends here and they remembered that Chen Ruo Yu was here too, so they came to see her for her to take the old couple out to visit A city and have a meal.
Chen Ruo Yu's head was tingling, and she would like to say that she and her parent's level people also have difficulty behind friends and generally can't have conversations.
However, the elders have asked her to accompany them, Chen Ruo Yu did not dare to not go to accompany. So she held her head and nervously accompanied the two old people to stroll around the famous shopping district, and then later found a good restaurant to sit down.
Zhou father and mother were very friendly, but Chen Ruo Yu was still a little nervous, parents looking for a junior to eat, the general purpose is definitely not simple. Sure enough, the two elderly people asked Chen Ruo Yu at the dinner table about her life in A city. They talked about the comparison between A city and C city, they talked about the weather and finally finished speaking, Zhou mother finally got to the main topic.
"Xiao Yu, have you recently properly talked with Ah Zhe? I have been looking forward to the two of you cultivating your feelings."
It has come, Chen Ruo Yu straightened her back and carefully answered, "I and Zhou Zhe are very good friends, we occasionally run into each other in the neighborhood." She said it like this, it should be clear, right?
Zhou father did not speak and drank his tea, Zhou mother smiled and said, "Xiao Yu, Ah Zhe was originally supposed to move back home at the beginning of this month, but now it has been more than half a month and there is still no movement. We asked him and he answered vaguely saying it was business matters. He talks smoothly about other things, but when it comes to the matter of returning home, he only said to wait that he still had some matters. If he doesn't move now, he will be stuck during the Spring festival, his luggage has already been packed, so what matter is not good and left to handle. I thought about it with his dad, since everything else is fine, it must be an emotional reason."
Chen Ruo Yu did not know how to reply and just thought, truly sharp parents.
"Xiao Yu, do you not want to move back to C city?"
"Ah?" Chen Ruo Yu was a little dumbfounded. That her son didn't go home as planned, this matter had nothing to do with her, but Zhou Zhe didn't tell his family. Lu Bao Ni also didn't have any results, obviously, as a friend, she certainly cannot sell them out.
"Auntie, Zhou Zhe and I are ordinary friends. My work and friends are here, I don't intend to move back to C city. But Zhou Zhe's delay in going home is definitely not because of me. Maybe he still has some other matters to arrange?"
"Can there be anything else? In such a short time, he was already ready to return home, it cannot be because of another girl, right?"
Chen Ruo Yu was shocked, she did not say that Zhou Zhe is not leaving because of another girl. It's over, she will not be able to get away.
Chen Ruo Yu felt her palms begin to sweat.
"I...I am not too clear about what is going on with Zhou Zhe." as Chen Ruo Yu said this, she felt particularly guilty, she felt that her expression must not be very convincing because Zhou father and mother had disbelieving and disapproving appearances.
It was not only Chen Ruo Yu's palms that were sweating. Zhou mother stared at her but did not ask her about it again. She poured tea for Chen Ruo Yu and changed the topic, and asked her whether it was hard working in A city, and what young people in A city generally do for leisure activities and so on.
She asked, Chen Ruo Yu answered, her mind was empty and she completely did not know how she was able to respond at all.
She really, can't chat with elders.
After a while, Zhou mother told Zhou father to call Zhou Zhe and ask him if he is busy and for him to come and eat together.
CHen Ruo Yu's face was green. It's over, when Zhou Zhe comes, will this become a blind date?
Her relationship with Meng Gu is great right now, but this will be eating with another man and his parents, what is this called? If Meng Gu gets to know about it, he will transform from Mr. Peach blossom forest to Tyrannosaurus, it will be very terrible.
Chen Ruo Yu quickly used the excuse of going to the bathroom and left for a while, and quickly used the opportunity to confess and called Meng Gu.
"Dr. Meng, I have something to tell you."
"What's the matter? Where are you?"
Chen Ruo Yu reported the address and restaurant name, Meng Gu smiled and said: "What, Miss Chen, you have at last come to the decision to verify your ability to spend money, and intend to go shopping for fun and create a beautiful bill for me to see?"
"No, no. Dr. Meng, my elder phobia is flaring up, need encouragement."
"Zhou Zhe's." Chen Ruo told him the story, "Now they have called Zhou Zhe to come over, I can't leave and my stomach's starting to hurt and I am getting breathless."
"Chen Ruo Yu, are you courting death? You're having a hidden affair and you still dare to pretend to be pitiful to me."
**("hidden affair" = red apricot tree leaning over the garden wall idiom)**
"Which wall?" How is it hidden, he really is accusing wrongly, "Don't be so fierce, I'm seriously talking to you."
"I am also seriously unhappy. This kind of thing is very easy to handle. What are you so nervous about? Go out now and tell them that you have no relationship with their son and that you have a boyfriend. Then say that you are not feeling well, say goodbye to them and hurry to the hospital and accompany your boyfriend on duty. it won't do not to watch you strictly."
"Don't make a fuss, and I can't say it now otherwise they will go home and tell my parents, I am not ready to inform them yet."
"Chen Ruo Yu, my image has changed too greatly recently, am I too gentle, is that it?"
"Don't make trouble." This is what she said, but with him being troublesome actually made her heart feel better and stronger, and she felt that she could go out and deal with the two old people.
"You hurry to the hospital to accompany me on duty. Tomorrow I want to eat braised pork, the day after sweet and sour pork ribs, the day after..."
"Okay, okay." Chen Ruo Yu interrupted him.
"I still want to eat something else, but you would not agree."
Meng Gu's words made Chen Ruo Yu ponder for a while, then she understood and her face began to redden, "Dr. Meng, can you not speak about ** all the time."
"What **, these are my true feelings."
"You're still talking!" Chen Ruo Yu blushed and lectured him, "Is there no one around you?" How embarrassing would it be if these words were heard by others?
"So what if there's someone? I am flirting with my girlfriend, whose business is it?"
"No one's really listening, right?" She really wanted to give him two punches.
"Fine, there's no one, I am in my office." Meng Gu's tone was quite cheerful. Clearly, her being anxious made him happy, he added, "Chen Ruo Yu, our tacit understanding is getting better and better, we should go meet our parents."
"Where did you see that our tacit understanding is getting better and better?"
"You understand every one of my ** jokes, this suggests that you understand it all and that is the tacit understanding, a sign indicating our relationship is maturing."
"Pei!" She was going to go out. However, she couldn't help but ask, "Have you eaten properly today? Does your stomach still hurt?"
"You've already pei-ed at me and you're still caring about how I am doing." Mr. Tyrannosaurus surfaced and shamelessly said.
"I won't care about you then, I'm going out. When I'm done here, I will call you again."
"Hey..." Unfortunately, Meng Gu had not finished his words, when Chen Ruo Yu hung up the call. Sure enough, talking to her family's Dr. Meng is a cure. At this time, she was already full of energy and in a very good mood.
Chen Ruo Yu walked out and thought about how to get out of this. She was not afraid of anything else, it's just these old people chased her and Zhou Zhe all the way here, and her boyfriend matter has come out as a topic, so they are both afraid that it is not going well.
Chen Ruo Yu's hunch is right. The next round, the two old people really turned around and tightly linked Zhou Zhe's delayed plans to the lack of development between Zhou Zhe and Chen Ruo Yu. They probably thought that the fact that Chen Ruo Yu does not intend to return to C city has influenced Zhou Zhe's trip.
Zhou mother said that Chen Ruo Yu was introduced to her by Aunt Li, a neighbor of Chen family. She has had a relationship with Aunt Li for over 20 years, she just listened to her seriously praising a girl a lot.
Chen Ruo Yu was a little embarrassed and just nodded. She knows Aunt Li, she lives downstairs at her apartment back home, and she watched her grow up. She always praises her, saying that she is honest, diligent, family-oriented, and filial and saying that she only wants to accept her as own daughter-in-law, but her family has a daughter. Chen Ruo Yu did not expect that she could not be Aunt Li's daughter-in-law, but she worked so hard to help promote her to other families.
"I have heard a lot of things about you and I feel that you are very good, so I actively arranged for you two young people to meet. You also have such a fate, on this side, you even live in the same apartment complex. Isn't this God's arrangement? I saw that you two had such a good conversation that day, and you two came back to A city together, and thought that you two would have no problems. I didn't expect that it has been so long, but there is still no progress, us old people are also anxious."
Chen Ruo Yu politely smiled, nodding no, shaking her head that it's not, she would like to say, "Auntie, God has too many arrangements, but did not arrange this", but she was embarrassed to talk back to the elders, and so just stayed there dim-witted giving a forced smile.
"Actually, if you don't want to go back, we can understand. A city is bigger than C city, it is more lively and the economy is better. It is also good to develop here, but after all, the parents are in C city, and so you can move back after a few years, we also don't feel in a hurry, the two places are not far away, so we can often meet."
Chen Ruo Yu nervously chuckled and poured tea for Zhou mother, "Auntie, drink tea, Zhou Zhe not going back really is not because of me, wait for him to come and ask him again, don't be anxious."
Chen Ruo Yu was telling others not to worry, but she herself was really anxious. How come Zhou Zhe has still not appeared until now, he should hurry up and come and answer to his parents and confess, she soon will not be able to resist them. She quickly waved to the waiter, using the excuse of heating the tea to waste time.
But as she beckoned, she also saw Meng Gu's mother holding a few shopping bags and standing by a table not far away and smiling at her. It looked like she has just come in from buying stuff and so had come upon her by accident.
Chen Ruo Yu almost banged her head on the table, it's not too late to hide in the bathroom, right? It's not too late to pretend she didn't see her, right? Alright, calm down, she can say that she is meeting elders from her hometown for a meal, it's nothing more.
After doing a good job of mental preparation, she saw that Zhou Zhe entered through the doors, looked at them and walked over.
It's over, it won't be enough to jump into the Yellow River.
