Chapter 1281 A Miracle
His attitude was very firm and he did not mince his words. Qiu Chenxi was so embarrassed that she was ballooning in red.
Qiu Chenxi was so furious that she was clenching her fists so hard that her fingertips turned white.
She understood that Father Tian was shunning her for being ‘unchaste’.
Spat! This old man.
Although he came back from America, he was still a stick in the mud. Tian Dong grew up and stayed in America for more than twenty years. He might have had countless girlfriends and sexual partners during this period. Did Father Tian think of all these when he nitpicked on her?
Qiu Chenxi was never someone who liked to suffer any humiliation or loss. She did not care about her face anymore since Father Tian had put her in such a bad light. Anyway, she had already lost it. Since that was the case, the Tian family could forget about their face too. “Uncle Tian, your words are too ridiculous. It is already the 21st century and not uncommon for men and women to be in such romantic relationships. Don’t make it sound so ugly. Before you look down on others, you should reflect on your own situation. Didn’t Dongzi grow up in America? Most likely, he had more fun than kids like us who grew up in the home country. Sister Zhai Hua, what is your view on this?”
She was someone who knew how to have ‘fun’. Of course, she could accept all of Tian Dong’s past.
If it were others, especially Zhai Hua from the Zhai family, could she accept it?
Zhai Hua crossed her arms. She wanted to watch how Qiu Chenxi ignited herself on fire. “Qiu Chenxi is spot on regarding this matter. I dislike those people who are too loose. It applies to both men and women. It’s dirty and easy to contract diseases.”
“Dongzi, did you hear that?” Qiu Chenxi laughed. True enough, Zhai Hua was still the Zhai Hua in her memory. She did not want Tian Dong and Tian Dong could forget about marrying Zhai Hua. Without Zhai Hua, most likely, Tian Dong would not be able to find another woman who was better than her.
Tian Dong looked at Zhai Hua indulgently. “I heard that.”
Qiu Chenxi looked at Tian Dong confidently. “Since you have heard that, shouldn’t you also express something?” Zhai Hua had openly made it clear that it was impossible for her to be with Tian Dong. She had rejected him in front of his family. Unless Tian Dong was so wretched and liked to be given cold shoulders, as a man, he should flare up and completely fall out with Zhai Hua.
“Of course!” Tian Dong nodded. He took out a little red velvet box from the pocket in his shirt. When he opened it, there was an extremely dazzling diamond ring lying in it. “I know that you don’t like wearing accessories. You don’t favor silver or gold either. Since there is nothing that you yearn for, I bought the one that is in fashion now. I didn’t plan this today but the opportunity just came at the right time. Hua Hua, marry me. You said before that you wish to get married before your twenty-eighth birthday, neither earlier nor later. It will be Lunar New Year in a few months.”
Hua Hua would be over twenty-eight years old after the Lunar New Year.
There was a flash in Zhai Hua’s eyes, tears welling up in them. “When did I say this?”
It sounded familiar. She seemed to have said those words before.
“Five years old.” It was also from the age of five that he had always remembered that he had to wait until Zhai Hua was twenty-eight years old before proposing to her.
Zhai Hua sniffled, feeling touched. So, Dongzi was not just toying or playing hard-to-get with her. It was her babbling as a child that brought her such huge trouble, and as a result, she let her thoughts run wild.
Right from the beginning, it was due to her own doing when she was a child that someone only proposed to her today.
She was only five years old then. She knew nothing about marriage!
She had already forgotten what she had said, but Dongzi, this idiot, had remembered it for twenty-three years. In addition, he truly endured until she was almost twenty-eight years old before confessing his love for her.
All of a sudden, feelings of happiness, sweetness, bitterness, and remorse surrounded Zhai Hua tightly. She was both crying and laughing. She really felt like punching Tian Dong but she wanted to punch her five-year-old self more. Argh! Why did she pretend to be mature then? Why was her mouth so wretched?
Zhai Hua completely could not recall why her five-year-old self told Tian Dong that she could get married only when she was almost twenty-eight years old, and it could be neither later nor earlier. It had to be twenty-eight years old.
“Hua Hua, will you marry me?” Zhai Hua did not know why she had said such mindless things but Tian Dong understood in his heart.
It was just that Tian Dong did not intend to tell Zhai Hua at this moment. When they were married and lying on the same bed or when he was in a good mood, he would tell Zhai Hua the foolish thing that she did when she was just five years old.
“Tian Dong, are you serious?” Qiu Chenxi began to grit her teeth.
She had wracked her brains on how to compete with and win against Zhai Hua by snatching Tian Dong over. She would not only resolve her marriage but also marry a wealthy man then. In addition, she could also take revenge on Zhai Sheng for abandoning her and choosing to be with Qiao Nan a few years ago. It would be akin to killing two birds with one stone, and nothing else was better than that. She could take revenge on all of the Zhai family at the same time.
However, Tian Dong had already proposed to Zhai Hua with such a huge diamond ring before Qiu Chenxi could think of a solution. Undoubtedly, he couldn’t possibly prepare this recently. Perhaps Tian Dong had long wished to marry Zhai Hua and he thus carried this ring by his side for a very long time.
When a man wanted to marry a woman, he even carried his wedding ring by his side and made preparations for so many years. Qiu Chenxi did not have any chances of succeeding in such a battle. On the contrary, she was defeated thoroughly. It was too ugly.
Even if Qiu Chenxi were to eventually think of a solution, Tian Dong and Zhai Hua might even have a child by then.
Qiu Chenxi’s face turned extremely pale. Judging from the look of it, she would explode at any point and fight with Tian Dong.
Since the moment Qiu Chenxi appeared and pestered him, Tian Dong had been ignoring her. However, at this very moment, Tian Dong wanted to make himself clear to Qiu Chenxi that it was impossible between them. “Do you know when I bought this ring?”
“When?” Zhai Hua, who was sitting beside Tian Dong, was more curious than Qiu Chenxi about this. Her eyes were bright when she looked at Tian Dong.
Zhai Hua was famous in the quad of Ping Cheng for being a grown-up lady left on the shelves. She did not even have a boyfriend, let alone a marriage partner.
Many people made mean jokes and guesses on whether Zhai Hua would ever have the chance to wait for any man to propose to her in her entire life.
After some time, Zhai Hua also felt the same way.
However, someone suddenly told Zhai Hua today that she was not an ‘old’ lady that no one wanted. In fact, such an outstanding and exemplary man had been pondering for a long time on how to marry her. He even bought the proposal ring long ago, and she had been on his mind for so many years.
The old iron tree had blossomed! A miracle had occurred!
