Kong Yue looked warily at Huo Qi, who was sitting opposite her, then turned her head slightly to look at Su Qing.
“Qingqing, why did you bring him home You ran out in such a hurry just now, I was so anxious.”
Su Qing frowned.
She looked at Huo Qi, not knowing why she had agreed to his request to meet her mother.
This was indeed unlike her personality.
It was too strange.
Huo Qi smiled at Kong Yue.
Im Huo Qi.”
Kong Yue looked at him and nodded.
“Auntie seems to have some misconceptions about me,” Huo Qi said as he slowly sat up straight.
“And it seems you dont approve of the marriage as well.”
He looked at Su Qing.
“I can understand that you feel sorry for Su Qing, but you cant just consider this matter from your own perspective.”
Kong Yue felt a little uncomfortable when she heard his words.
“What do you mean by that Qingqing is only eighteen.
She still has a long life ahead of her.
What right do you have to tie her down so early” She had suppressed a lot of her unwillingness and anger, and now, when she looked at Huo Qis face, the bitterness was starting to surface.
Su Qing looked at her mother and reached out to hold her hand.
“Dont be sad.”
Kong Yue lowered her head.
She felt a little helpless that she couldnt protect her daughter, but she didnt want to lose her composure in front of Huo Qi.
It was also strange that Huo Qi requested to come to the Su residence today.
Since his grandfather had intervened, the marriage was confirmed.
There was no need for him to come over at this time to suffer Kong Yues wrath, but here he was.
Huo Qi finally understood the situation.
Kong Yue wanted to protect Su Qing too much that she even treated him as an imaginary enemy.
He gave a tiny sigh.
“How about this”
Huo Qi glanced at Su Qing, then turned to look at Kong Yue.
He said slowly, “The engagement can be delayed.
It can be after Qingqing turns twenty.
I can wait.
I agree, Qingqing is indeed still young.”
Recently, many people have asked him if he liked Su Qing, but he didnt respond directly.
However, he knew that there was no other reason to explain his recent interest and concern for her, except that he liked her.
Yes, he had fallen in love with this little girl, Huo Qi thought.
Otherwise, with his decisive personality, he wouldnt have gone through so much trouble just to get her to agree to their engagement.
He cared about her, which was why he was so afraid of hurting her, and concerned about what the people she cared about thought about him.
Kong Yue looked at him suspiciously.
Could this kid be plotting something again
Huo Qis eyes were fixed on Su Qing, but it was unclear what he was thinking.
Su Qing glanced at him, a strange feeling growing in her heart.
She stared into his eyes.
“Are you going to keep your word”
Huo Qi smiled.
“When have I ever lied to you”
That was true.
Although Huo Qi was a hooligan who constantly pestered her, he had done everything he promised her, so he could be considered somewhat trustworthy.
The issue cropped up this time because Old Master Huo had intervened.
“Alright, go back then,” Su Qing said.
Huo Qi smiled helplessly and said, “Youre really dumping me right after making use of me.
Youre not angry anymore, are you”
Su Qing looked at him, then turned to look at Kong Yue.
“I wont be angry so long as Mommy isnt.”
Kong Yue was stunned for a moment when she saw the way Su Qing and Wallace conversed.
When did they become so close
Huo Qi stood up slowly and smoothed his suit jacket.
“Ill explain to Grandpa when I get back.
Auntie, dont worry too much.”
He looked at Su Qing with a smile in his eyes.
“I heard that youre going to Floyd University I have a few friends who are teaching there.
If you need any help, you can let me know.”
“I dont need your concern.
Hurry up and leave,” Su Qing chased him out.
By the time Su Rui reached the Su residence, Su Xing and Su Lu were already there.
He threw his coat down and asked anxiously, “I heard that Huo Qi came to our house”
Kong Yue picked up his coat.
“Why are you in such a hurry”
Su Rui gulped, as he thought, What if my sister was snatched away because I was too late
“What did he come here for”
Su Qing looked at her brothers, who looked as though they were facing a formidable enemy, and was speechless.
Ive already asked him to go back and explain things to his grandfather.
The engagement has also been delayed…”
“The Huo family is really terrible.
The younger one failed, so they pulled the older man in.
Do they want to pursue an engagement, or do they want to create a feud!” Su Rui interrupted Su Qing and said indignantly.
