ith Mi Xi.
“Don’t worry, let’s talk to Uncle Cheng and Aunt Su first.
Then you will be settled down, and you can have a good rest.
Although the things here are a bit weird, you can take your time learning.

Mi Xi doesn’t speak but does nod.

“Look ah, what we’re riding in now is called a ‘car’—it’s just like your carriages.” Yue Lao seems to want to popularize the things at hand first.

“Without a horse, how can it run?”

“It’s because gasoline is being burned.”

“Gasoline?” Mi Xi is really curious.

Yue Lao becomes a little nervous.
“It’s just a kind of oil that can burn.”

Chen Ying scoffs at this answer.
What kind of oil can’t burn?

“Well, it’s just that the gasoline is burning, and the car starts running when there is power,” Yue Lao tries hard to explain amidst the little girl’s obvious confusion.

“Why can it run when it’s burning? Since it’s burning, why is there nothing wrong with the car?”

Yue Lao 2238 is speechless, his expression serious.
He doesn’t know how to answer.
He is really busy, he is not involved in the education of young girls, he just cares about their marriage.
Chen Ying peeks at the two in the rearview mirror and wants to laugh at the conversation.
Schadenfreude2 is a great way to increase pleasure.
He glances at the rearview mirror again: it’s reflecting two very serious faces at the back seat.

“Mi Xi, don’t worry, your Uncle Chen Ying will tell you the answer to these questions in the future.”

The corners of Chen Ying’s raised mouth quickly collapse.
Why should he be the one to answer ah? He will leave immediately after seeing them off.
Thank you, bye bye, let’s not see each other again.

Hearing Yue Lao’s words, Mi Xi quickly looks ahead, to the back of Chen Ying’s chair.
Chen Ying catches her expression in the rearview mirror.
She purses her lips, doesn’t speak, and nods at Yue Lao again as a response. 

But Chen Ying carefully notes that she did not flatter herself.
He hasn’t even said hello or a single polite word to her.

It stands to reason that she listens to Yue Lao, shouldn’t she then respect him as an uncle and a guardian? In order to make life easier in the future, shouldn’t she show her friendliness? Chen Ying glances at the rearview mirror again at just the same moment that Mi Xi also looks over—their eyes meet in the mirror, and both of them turn away.

She must realize that he doesn’t like her and isn’t going to accept her.
Chen Ying glances at the rearview mirror again.
This little girl has a lot of pride ah.

In the second half of the journey, Chen Ying never peeks at the two behind him again.
Yue Lao also learns his lesson and does not try to carry out literacy education anymore but only talks to Mi Xi about other things.
What the other Yue Lao had said to her over there; that he is the person in charge of her case here; that he will definitely do his best.
He also introduces in detail who Cheng Jiangyi and Su Xiaopei are, and encourages Mi Xi to hurry up and find a partner, and to work harder.

Hurry up what? Chen Ying’s face twitches.
The little girl looks underage ah.
Yue Lao actually instigated and encouraged a minor to find a partner.
Is this really appropriate? Also, can the little girl understand him when he says these words and meanings?

They finally arrive at Cheng Jiangyi’s house.

Chen Ying stops the car directly in front, and Yue Lao reminds him,  “You can’t park here.” 

“Just get out of the car, then I’ll go.” He doesn’t intend to get down.

“If you don’t take us up, we won’t get out of the car,” Yuelao says firmly.

What? Want to play rogue with him? Chen Ying turns his head, and Yue Lao 2238 folds his arms around his chest, as if he would not give up until he reaches his goal.
Mi Xi’s expressionless face is cold.
Like she’s not involved at all.

“You need to go up with us, I have something to tell you,” Yue Lao says again.

Chen Ying’s mouth is tightly pursed and he suddenly has a nasty feeling like he’s caught in the middle.
He thought it was just a prank, but it turns out to be a full show, and he’s now very upset.

“I have something to tell you, it’s very important, ” Yue Lao repeats.

Chen Ying glances at Mi Xi, and Mi Xi is also looking at him.

She is obviously wary of him.

He’s the one who has to watch out, okay?

The gazes of Chen Ying and Mi Xi are competing.
He can see that it doesn’t matter to her whether he follows them in or not, and whether he would take her in at the end.

Hey, since she doesn’t give a damn so much, then he’s going to go up and have a look.
It’s not like he hasn’t been to Cheng Jiangyi’s house before — what can they do to him? He just wants to know what the hell is going on, since he definitely isn’t going to be this little girl’s damned guardian anyway.

It seems to be a concerted part of urban planning.
