Growing Fond of You, Mr Nian - Chapter 1216
Chapter 1216: I’m so Surprised That Our Xi Is with a Scientist
Hearing all that made Nian Xi’s ears numb.
She knew that would happen.
Ever since she broke up with Feng Ji Chuan and Nian Junting got married and had a kid, the whole family had their eyes on her.
But why was everyone complimenting Jiang Yuning? They made it sound as if she wasn’t good enough for him.
Those were her families, not his.
She turned to Jiang Yuning. Surprisingly, under the gaze of so many people, he was not nervous at all.
She couldn’t tell if his composure was due to insensitivity or to being used to occasions like this.
“I know you.” Nian Qingyun who had met Jiang Yuning came out of the crowd, looked at Jiang Yuning in a complicated way and said, “Why are you two together again?”
“Have you two already met?” Hearing his words, Murong Cheng immediately looked at him with great interest. “Why didn’t I know that Nian Xi has such a good-looking guy in her life? No wonder she called the boys I introduced her to ugly.”
“He is Jiang Yuning, a physicist,” said Nian Qingyun unhappily. “The one who caused a scene in France last year.”
“Oh, him.” Murong Cheng figured it out. She remembered trying to talk her daughter into giving up on being with the boy. She even bought Nian Xi a dog for that purpose. The dog’s name was Jiang-jiang.
“A scientist,” said Grandma Nian, nodding delightedly. “I’m surprised our Xi is with a scientist. Good, good. Our ancestors must have been blessing the Nian Family. We’ve never raised a scientist yet.”
Nian Junlei clucked his tongue and said, “He doesn’t look like a scientist. Xi, I thought all scientists spend their lives in labs without knowing about the outside world.”
Nian Xi kept her thoughts to herself. Why is my family acting this way?
“What are you talking about?” Nian Qingyun wasn’t so happy. “Why do you make it sound like Xi is worse than a scientist? She is an ordinary police officer, yes. But she works so hard to serve the people. Her job is full of difficulties. From small things like finding lost cats to big things like solving tough murder cases. Everything she’s done is good. Not to mention her good looks and great body. I can tell you, you won’t find a better rich girl in this city.”
Nian Xi nodded.
She deeply agreed with her father.
“Mind your language.” Grandpa Nian furrowed his brows and reminded the others. “The Feng Family is here. They’re looking at us.”
“Oh, yeah, yeah.” His words reminded Grandma Nian. After all, the Nian and Feng families have been friends for many years. “Xi,” said Grandma Nian. “Introduce us to Jiang. He looks confused.”
“He’s always like this,” said Nian Qingyun blandly.
“How can you say that?” Grandma Nian said to him. “Show some respect to the scientist. This is the first time that I, your mother, am seeing a living scientist.”
“Like you’ve seen a dead scientist?” Nian Qingyung quipped.
“Yeah. I’ve seen them in textbooks.”
The others didn’t know how to respond to that.
Nian Xi glanced at the confused Jiang Yuning, then started introducing him to her family.
“This is my grandmother.”
“Grandma, nice to meet you.” Jiang Yuning hurriedly greeted Grandma Nian with a gentle voice.
“This is my grandfather.”
“Grandpa, nice to meet you.”
Nian Xi introduced every member of her family, from the oldest to the youngest.
Nian Qingyun remembered what happened when he saw Jiang Yuning last time, so when Nian Xi introduced him, he hurriedly said to Jiang Yuning, “Don’t call me father. I’m not your father.”
Jiang Yuning blinked his eyes and said, “You are surely not my father now. Xi and I haven’t gotten married yet. Uncle Nian, good to see you.”
The others burst out laughing. “Uncle, I’m so surprised you want him to call you father already,” said Nian Junlei.
