Many Secrets

Liuli was stunned for a moment. She didn’t expect Uncle Tang to ask her so directly.

“That’s not what I meant. It just happened too suddenly, so I can’t adapt to it yet.

Uncle, you’re quite good.

Really, since you’re so good-looking, there must be many girls who like you!

You’re tall and look good in anything. Even in home clothes and an apron, you look so charming.

Moreoever, your family is also rich. Your conditions are really enviable!

Although you’re a little old for me, to others, you’re a high-caliber man.

And you’re the pink diamond level kind!” Liuli comforted Uncle Tang with a wry smile.

“Uh…” Tang Moxi was speechless again.

This girl knew many adjectives, many of which he had never heard of.

It sounded like she was praising him, but after thinking about it, it was the complete opposite!

“If you’re really unwilling, I’ll explain to Grandpa tomorrow and cancel the wedding!” Tang Moxi said again as he stared at Liuli calmly.

“How will you explain it?

Will you say that I despise you for being too old?

Or will you say that there are no feelings between us and that we’re not suitable for marriage?

Therefore, we will definitely get a divorce after getting married.

Or will you say that I’m ungrateful, so I’m unwilling to marry you?” Liuli asked agitatedly.

Her face was flushed.

Tang Moxi finally realized the problem.

Liuli seemed to be drunk!

“That’s not what I meant!” Tang Moxi replied in amusement.

“It’s good that you don’t mean that.

We’ll still get married.

But we have to sign a prenuptial agreement!” Liuli announced.

“How?” Tang Moxi asked with a smile.

“Oh, I forgot. I’ll talk about it when I remember it again!” Liuli replied with a pout while looking a little annoyed.

“Liuli, is there a guy you like?” Tang Moxi stared at Liuli as he asked calmly.

“Haha, I can’t tell you that!” Liuli laughed.

Then, she picked up a shrimp dumpling and put it in her mouth to chew. Then, she stole a glance at Uncle Tang, like a child who had pulled a prank.

When Liuli was tired, she fell asleep at the dining table.

Tang Moxi had no choice but to carry her into the bedroom and let her sleep on the bed.

Then, he called the Yu family and said that Liuli was so tired that she had fallen asleep already.

He said that he would send her back later.

Yu Zhiyuan said on the other end of the phone,

“It’s too late, so let her stay at your place.

Come back tomorrow, so that you won’t have to run back and forth!”

“It’s fine,” Tang Moxi replied calmly.

“Jingxing…” Yu Zhiyuan called out hesitantly.

“Uncle Yu, what else do you have to say?” Tang Moxi replied.

“To be honest, I’m very satisfied with you.

You’re out of Liuli’s league.

However, you also know that Liuli is the only child in our family and we’ve always doted on her.

Her mother and I don’t have expectations of her living a glorious life in the future.

We only hope that she’ll live a peaceful and happy life!

“Jingxing, you’ll take good care of my daughter, right?!” He was still worried and reluctant!

“I understand what you mean, Uncle Yu.

There’s nothing about me being out of Liuli’s league.

As long as she’s willing to marry into my family, she’ll be my wife.

We respect each other as equals!

Uncle Yu, I can’t guarantee that I can give Liuliuli what she deserves.

“But I can do my best to treat her well and try my best not to let her suffer,” Tang Moxi replied calmly.

Liuli was very happy. Whether it was Liuli’s grandma or Uncle and Aunt Yu, they doted on her.

Therefore, they were a little worried that she was getting married at such a young age, even if her marriage partner was him!

“Then I’m relieved.

Liuli is young and insensible, so you might have to guide her patiently.

“If you have any problems in the future and it’s inconvenient for you to tell her directly, you can tell me,” Yu Zhiyuan instructed with a smile.

“Alright, thank you, Uncle Yu!”

“There’s nothing else. I’ll have to trouble you to take care of Liuli tonight.”

You should rest early too!”

“It’s no trouble. It’s what I should do. Uncle Yu, you should rest early too!”

After talking to Uncle Yu, Tang Moxi didn’t return to the bedroom.

Instead, he walked to the window and looked out at the dim lights with an unreadable expression.

Liuli woke up in the middle of the night.

A dim yellow wall lamp lit up in the room.

She looked around, but she didn’t know where she was.

After a while, she remembered that she had been with Uncle Tang.

She got out of bed quietly and walked towards the door.

When she opened the door, she saw that it was dark outside.

Tang Moxi woke up almost at the same time as he heard the door open.


Tang Moxi called out tentatively and got up to turn on the light.

“What’s wrong?” Tang Moxi walked over.

“Brother Moxi, why am I here?” Liuli asked in confusion.

“This is my apartment. You fell asleep after supper.

“I called Uncle Yu, who asked you to stay here tonight,” Tang Moxi explained.

“Oh!” Liuli replied slowly.

“It’s not dawn yet, so go back to sleep. I’ll call you in the morning!”

“Thank you, Brother Moxi!” Liuli replied and turned to enter the bedroom. She finally changed her address and stopped calling him uncle.

After Tang Moxi closed the door for her, he walked back to the sofa.

However, he didn’t feel sleepy, so he sat down on the sofa and picked up a cigarette box and lighter from under the tea table. Then, he lit a cigarette.

Liuli returned to the bedroom and lay down to continue sleeping, but she couldn’t fall asleep.

She tossed and turned, but still couldn’t fall asleep. Instead, she felt more and more awake.

She had no choice but to get up again and walk out of the bedroom.

Tang Moxi, who was smoking in front of the window, turned around and their eyes met.

Neither of them moved. They just stared at each other quietly.

That stare seemed to have lasted an eternity!

“Liuli, what’s wrong?” Tang Moxi finally asked.

“Brother Moxi, I can’t fall asleep,” Liuli replied pitifully.

“Put on a coat and come over to sit for a while.” With that, Tang Moxi stubbed out his cigarette and walked to the sofa to sit down.

Liuli turned around and went into the bedroom to get her coat. Then, she walked to the living room.

Tang Moxi was boiling water and preparing to make tea.

“Will you be able to sleep after drinking tea?” Tang Moxi asked Liuli.

“Yes!” Liuli replied.

“Then let’s have some tea!” With that, Tang Moxi stood up to get the tea leaves.

As Liuli curled up on the sofa, she felt that she was quite cute.

In the middle of the night, instead of sleeping, she was actually drinking tea with Tang Moxi.

After Tang Moxi took the tea leaves, he returned to the tea table to brew tea.

“Brother Moxi, you like tea?!” Liuli asked.

“What else do you think I should drink?” Tang Moxi looked up at her and asked with a smile.

“Coffee. Isn’t coffee popular now?”

“I rarely drink coffee. My stomach can’t take it!”

“Isn’t the tea the same?” Liuli replied.

“I can only drink black tea!” Tang Moxi explained.

“Oh!” As Liuli watched Uncle Tang brew tea so skillfully, she suddenly felt that the man’s focused expression when brewing tea was very charming!

“You don’t like it?” Tang Moxi glanced at her again.

“I’m fine. I’m just not particularly used to it,” Liuli replied as she came back to her senses and blushed.

“What do you usually drink? Water, juice?”

“Sometimes plain water, sometimes coffee.”

“Drink less coffee and exercise more!” After Tang Moxi brewed tea, he poured her a cup.

As Liuli held her teacup and sipped it, her face turned even redder.

Her imagination was running wild again.

“Oh, I forgot. You don’t like sports!” Tang Moxi finally remembered and replied.

“Actually, I’m fine. I just don’t like running,” Liuli explained.

“What do you like to do? Play basketball, swim, or dance?” Tang Moxi continued to ask.

“Does climbing trees count?” Liuli asked in a low voice.

Tang Moxi was stunned for a moment before looking up at Liuli.

Liuli’s ears were already red. She wished she could find a hole to hide in. How embarrassing!

“Yes, but I might not be able to accompany you. I can’t climb trees!” Tang Moxi replied half-jokingly.

Liuli couldn’t help but laugh.

“That’s great!”


“No, I mean, it’s a good thing you don’t know how to climb trees!”

Actually, she knew how to climb trees because in the past, when she was being beaten, she would climb trees to hide.

Her mother didn’t know how to climb trees, but she didn’t dare to chase her anymore, for fear that she would accidentally fall from the tree.

Therefore, every time she got into trouble, the first thing she did was climb up a tree to escape.

According to her father, she was like a monkey.

So now that Uncle Tang said that he didn’t know how to climb trees, Liuli immediately felt that her trick could still be used and she couldn’t help but feel smug.

“Why do you like to climb trees?”

“Uh…” Liuli was immediately stumped. She couldn’t say that it was because she wanted to avoid being beaten up! “Um… can I not answer?”

“Sure!” Tang Moxi poured another cup of tea for Liuli.

“Brother Moxi, are you going to work tomorrow?” Liuli finally thought of this and asked.

“I don’t have to go to work, but I need to get something done!” Tang Moxi replied.

“Oh, then go and rest. I’ll play by myself. If I’m tired, I’ll just sleep here,” Liuli replied.

“It’s fine. Since you can’t sleep, I’ll sit with you for a while.”

Liuli felt that Uncle Tang was actually a good person.

Although he was a little old, he was very good at taking care of people!

Moreover, he was so handsome. He was completely her type!

She didn’t like sissies who were prettier than women. She liked handsome and masculine men.

He was good-looking, but he didn’t look feminine. Instead, he looked masculine and tough.

“Brother Moxi, let’s chat!” Liuli said in boredom.

“Aren’t we talking now?” Tang Moxi smiled at Liuli.

“No, I mean the kind where we can understand more about each other.
