“What if Qing Xiao doesn't like him?” Mother Luan brought up, “Look at some other people, like Zhu family’s Zhu Xi Zheng, Ke family’s Ke Zhen Zhong, Wan family’s Wan Xia Feng or Di family’s Di Xi.
These are all pretty good.”

    Father Luan responded, “In the end, they’re still not as good as Yong Huan.”

    He has taken a fancy to Yong Huan's status as the only son of the world's richest man.
Plus, the others weren’t the only children in their families either.

    Luan Qing Xiao couldn't continue listening to them anymore.
She deliberately made sounds as she walked downstairs.

    Seeing Luan Qing Xiao coming down, Mother Luan asked, “Qing Xiao, are you hungry? The food is all kept warmed for you.”

    Luan Qing Xiao nodded.
She walked to sit down opposite of Father Luan and Mother Luan, “Dad, I heard what Mom and you were saying just now.”

    Father Luan didn't think there was a problem, “You’re old enough now that you have to think about getting married.
What do you think of Yong Huan? I remember you liked playing with him when you were young.”

    Mother Luan added, “You also like to play with Zhu Xi, Ke Zhen Zhong and Di Xi.”

    The daughter of their Luan family can't marry down to a lesser family, so Mother Luan also mentioned some other children of the top families that Luan Qing Xiao has known since childhood.

    Luan Qing Xiao directly said, “I don't think any of them are good.”

    Father Luan frowned, “They’re all dragons and phoenixes among people, what's not good?”

    Luan Qing Xiao spread her hands, “I don't like them and they don't like me, what's good about that?”

    “Emotions can be cultivated.” Mother Luan remarked.

    “You and my dad dated freely, why did it have to become a designated person when it got to me?” Luan Qing Xiao refuted them with the information she obtained from 520.

    Mother Luan was refuted speechless by what Luan Qing Xiao said.
She turned her head and glanced at Father Luan.
The meaning in her eyes was “Qing Xiao's words seem to make sense.”

    Mother Luan’s family background was decent, it was barely considered the lowest class among the rich.
When studying abroad, she met Father Luan and they fell in love at first sight.
Father Luan insisted on marrying Mother Luan after graduation despite the opposition of his family.
Even when Mother Luan only gave birth to Luan Qing Xiao, this one daughter and no son, Father Luan’s feelings for Mother Luan remained the same in spite of all the sarcastic jabs the Luan relatives made.

    Father Luan was also made speechless by Luan Qing Xiao.

    There was a good saying that people follow examples set by their precedents.
He and Mother Luan forcing Luan Qing Xiao to fall in love with the people they selected isn’t convincing at all.

    Father Luan coughed, “They are all indeed excellent.”

    “But I want to fall in love as freely as you guys.” Luan Qing Xiao insisted.

    Facing her daughter's stubborn eyes, Mother Luan immediately softened, “We’ll listen to you, fall in love freely it is.”

    “Dating is okay, but you have to get past us if you want to get married.” Father Luan relented,

    “Whatever, I definitely won’t look for someone who doesn’t let me talk during mealtimes like Mom did.” Luan Qing Xiao mumbled.
Before Father Luan could react, she got up and ran into the kitchen.

    Father Luan looked at Mother Luan incredulously, “What did she say?”

    Mother Luan used her hands to smoothen him on his back, “I told you it's not good for you to be too strict with Qing Xiao.
Qing Xiao is already so big.
It’s not like she’ll grow crooked if you just be a loving father.

    “I’m just afraid she will be told that she has no manners after she marries?” Father Luan felt wronged.

    Mother Luan quickly comforted him, “I know, I know you’re doing it for Qing Xiao's sake.
But why should our daughter marry someone who makes her angry? She’s always liked having a free-spirited temperament.
Didn't you see how she barely ate any bites for dinner because of you?”

    Father Luan: “…
… This girl is just spoiled.”

    “Even then her spoiledness is nurtured by you.” Mother Luan reminded.

    Previously in the Luan family, there was no rule of “keeping quiet during mealtimes and bedtimes”.
Father Luan has always been kind to Luan Qing Xiao, but today for some reason he changed to be like that, which made Luan Qing Xiao say, “to not find a man like Father Luan.”

    “If it weren’t for that old guy, Lang Ping'an, telling me Qing Xiao doesn’t act like a lady and how no man will like her in the future.
I was just concerned about it, so I did all this without thinking.”

    Mother Luan said angrily, “Did Lang Ping’an think Qing Xiao would become his daughter-in-law? He’s even managing how we educate our children.
I must tell Qing Xiao later that she can like whoever she wants, just not Lang Dun Ming in the future.

    Luan Qing Xiao brought the warmed food out of the pot.
When she was done, she cleaned the table.

    The several people Mother Luan mentioned probably were her future rivals.

    “Zhu Xi Zheng, Ke Zhen Zhong, Wan Xia Feng, Di Xi and Lang Dun Ming also liked the female lead, but are the five top family male supporting characters that lost to the male lead, Yong Huan.” Luan Qing Xiao noted their names.
She thought it would be best to keep them from seeing Nie Zhen'er or wait until she exchanged Nie Zhen'er's crystal necklace before meeting her.

    The next day, Luan Qing Xiao got up in the morning to open the curtains and found it was raining outside.

    Yesterday Nie Zhen'er said she would only go to school with her by car if the weather was bad and it rained today.

    Even the Heavens are assisting her.

    Luan Qing Xiao put on her school uniform and went downstairs after washing up.
Ji Ze was already waiting for her in the living room.

    When Ji Ze saw Luan Qing Xiao, he said, “Miss, it's raining.
Shall we pick up Miss Zhen'er along the way later?”

    Father Luan came downstairs in his pajamas and asked, “Who is Zhen’er?”

    Ji Ze happily answered Father Luan, “Sir, Miss Zhen'er is a new good friend Young Miss made.”

    Father Luan replied with interest, “Oh? Doesn't Qing Xiao not like playing with girls? What's so special about this Zhen’er?”

    Ji Ze responded, “She’s very beautiful!”

    Father Luan: “…

    He looked at Luan Qing Xiao, “Qing Xiao, you tell me, your Uncle Ze is getting less and less reliable.
How could you make friends with others only because they’re beautiful?”

    Luan Qing Xiao put her backpack on the sofa, “In addition to being very beautiful, she is also very smart, very confident, very kind, very upright…
… There are so many advantages that it wouldn’t make sense if I didn’t like her.”

    Father Luan uttered, “There’s such a good girl? Why haven't I heard of her?”

    If anyone had such a good child, they would have long been famous.

    Luan Qing Xiao said, “She’s from an ordinary background.”

    Father Luan furrowed his brows, “How do you know an ordinary family’s child?”

    “Didn't I just say that? Renjia is very smart and was recruited by the Saint Marilyn Aristocratic Private High.
Her tuition and miscellaneous fees are exempted and she has scholarships too.”

    When Father Luan heard this, his brows loosened, “As long as she didn't deliberately approach you with an agenda, you may be friends with her.”

    Luan Qing Xiao thought: It's not her having an agenda towards me, but it’s your daughter who has the agenda towards others and wants to marry her as a daughter-in-law.

    The nanny had already prepared breakfast.
Seeing there was enough time, Luan Qing Xiao called Nie Zhen'er and told her to wait for herself before eating.

    When Luan Qing Xiao and Ji Ze were about to head out, Mother Luan still hadn't come down yet.
Luan Qing Xiao asked Father Luan ,who was sitting on the sofa and reading the newspaper, “Where's my mother? Are you not eating either?”

    “I'm waiting for your mother to eat together.” When Father Luan mentioned Mother Luan, he had a gentleness in his eyes.

    Luan Qing Xiao: “…
…” Okay then, true love.

    In the future, she will PDA in front of her parents too.

    It’s not like Nie Zhen'er and her would lose to them.

    After going out, Ji Ze drove to Nie Zhen'er's house.

    When they arrived at the door of Nie Zhen'er's house, Ji Ze honked the horn and the door of Nie Zhen'er's house opened.
Nie Zhen'er carried her backpack and put her hands above her head to block the rain.
Then, she ran over and got into the car.

    “Qing Xiao, good morning.” Nie Zhen'er greeted Luan Qing Xiao with energy.

    “Uncle Ze, good morning.”

    “Good morning, Miss Zhen'er.” Ji Ze greeted back with a smile.

    “Uncle Ze, you can just call me Zhen'er, I’m not some wealth family’s young miss.” Nie Zhen'er wasn’t used to the way Ji Ze addressed her.

    Ji Ze said, “Why are you considered a young miss? All the girls are the young miss of their family.”

    Luan Qing Xiao took out a snow-white handkerchief to wipe the areas where there was rain on Nie Zhen'er’s head.

    Feeling Luan Qing Xiao's movements, Nie Zhen’er cheeks flushed and she forgot to respond to Ji Ze.

    Luan Qing Xiao retracted her hand, “Why don't you bring an umbrella? It's easy to catch a cold if your hair gets wet in the rain.”

    Nie Zhen'er blinked her almond eyes and watched Luan Qing Xiao retract her handkerchief, “It's only two or three meters away and the rain wasn’t that heavy, so I didn't grab an umbrella.”

    Luan Qing Xiao disagreed, “Then what about when you get off at school? How long does it take to get to the teaching building?”

    Nie Zhen'er wasn't afraid of Luan Qing Xiao at all.
She smiled and linked arms with her, “Isn't there still you? You’ll definitely have an umbrella.”

    Luan Qing Xiao's serious expression immediately couldn't be maintained.
She couldn't help but smile as well, “How did you know I would share my umbrella with you?”

    Nie Zhen'er’s eyes turned round as she looked a little aggrieved, “You’re not going to share it with me?”

    What else can Luan Qing Xiao say: “Of course I’ll share it with you.”

    When they arrived outside the school, the two walked into the school after saying goodbye to Ji Ze.

    Luan Qing Xiao held up an umbrella she purposefully picked that was neither big nor small, “We’ll have to stay a little closer so no one gets rained on.”

    Nie Zhen'er took the initiative to hug Luan Qing Xiao's arm.
She raised her head and glanced at Luan Qing Xiao with bright almond eyes, asking, “Is this all right?”

    Although Luan Qing Xiao could feel her arm against the soft curves, she answered naturally, “Yes.”

    The two intimately walked into the teaching building, stunning all the students they met on the way.

    These two people had only met yesterday and their family backgrounds are also significantly different.
What charm does Nie Zhen'er have that makes Luan Qing Xiao treat her so well?

    Before the two of them entered the classroom, the news had already spread.

    No matter why Luan Qing Xiao treated Nie Zhen'er so well, Nie Zhen'er was no longer someone they could simply ignore.

    Entering the classroom, Luan Qing Xiao hung the umbrella on the front bar and returned to her seat with Nie Zhen'er.

    Ke Li came later than them.
Once she arrived, her sister group immediately told Ke Li what had happened.

    Ke Li glanced at Nie Zhen'er, both angrily and jealously, “I don't know how she fawns on Luan Qing Xiao to make Luan Qing Xiao insist on protecting her.”

    “Since she’s friends with Luan Qing Xiao, she’s considered a sparrow that became a Phoenix.”

    “Although Luan Qing Xiao looks easy to talk to, she has never acted this well towards others.”

    “Yeah, if Qing Xiao weren’t a girl, I would have thought the two were dating.”

    When Ke Li heard these words, her heart jumped.
She vaguely had a foreboding feeling.
