Chapter 2099: We’re Officially a Married Couple After Tonight
Mrs. Shen seemed slightly worried but when she looked up, she noticed that Shen Manting’s fair and smooth hands were holding onto a red object.
Upon closer inspection, Mrs. Shen realised that they were two red booklets.
Mrs. Shen was surprised. However, she seemed to vaguely understand what was going on for she then asked, “Manting, what are you holding onto?”
When Shen Manting realised that she had noticed it, she subconsciously glanced at Shen Luo’an.
After Shen Luo’an gave her a look of assurance, she said, “Mom, it’s a marriage certificate.”
“A marriage certificate?” The words echoed in Mrs. Shen mind.
This time, Shen Longyue and Old. Mrs. Shen also looked over at them.
Old Mrs. Shen instantly stood up and asked, “Marriage certificate? Who got married? Are both of you married?”
Shen Manting had never experienced such a situation before and when she saw how the elders in the family crowded around her, she felt tense.
Mrs. Shen became more relaxed and began to coax Shen Manting, “Here, let me have a look.”
She reached her hand over as she spoke.
Shen Manting had been clutching the tiny booklets tightly and after handing them over to Mrs. Shen, she quickly retracted her hands.
When Mrs. Shen felt the booklets, she could not conceal her joy.
Upon flipping the booklet open, her eyes landed on the eye-catching photo of Shen Luo’an and Shen Manting.
Shen Luo’an and Shen Manting’s dates of birth were written above, followed by their ID numbers below.
Mrs. Shen looked visibly delighted as she said, “Mom, look.”
Old Mrs. Shen moved closer and when she saw the words written on it, she smacked her thighs in joy and exclaimed, “Luo’an, you punk!”
Shen Longyue came over and after he ascertained that it was indeed a marriage certificate, he smiled slightly.
Shen Manting could feel her hair stand on end.
It felt as if she was a little white rabbit that had entered a wolves’ den.
Now, it seemed as if she was mercilessly surrounded by a pack of wolves which would finish her off any time soon.
She tugged at Shen Luo’an’s sleeves and said, “Dad, Mom and Grandmother seem overjoyed.”
Shen Luo’an’s lips curled up into a smile. He then reached out his arms to hug her before he softly replying, “Of course they’re happy. We’re officially a married couple now.”
Shen Manting felt that something was amiss but she nodded her head in agreement. “I see,” she said.
Old Mrs. Shen was undoubtedly the happiest of the lot. She quickly whipped out an almanac calendar and said, “Since you’re married, I’ll find an auspicious day for you to throw your wedding banquet this year!”
“Yes, you need a wedding banquet. It has to be grand,” Mrs. Shen chimed in delightedly. “You have no idea how many people out there have been commenting about how Luo’an is still not married despite being over thirty years old with a child who’s already two years old. It’s great that your family is blissfully and happily reunited now.”
As she spoke, she stepped forward and took hold of Shen Manting’s hands. She sounded rather overwhelmed with emotions as she said, “Live well with Luo’an from now on. This is your home no matter what happens.”
Shen Manting felt even more uneasy.
She could not feel any joy in her heart.
Instead, she felt as if something terrible looming over her and that she was embroiled in the heart of the storm and could do nothing about it.
It was an extremely unpleasant feeling.
Shen Manting wanted to smile but she could not seem to do so.
Eventually, she managed to force out a smile and say, “Mom, I’m tired.”
“Oh, you’re tired!” Mrs. Shen repeated as she quickly let go of Shen Manting’s hands. She then stole a glance at Shen Luo’an and reached over to give him a pat. “Did you hear that? She’s tired!” she said.
Shen Luo’an chuckled at her reaction.
He then stood up and took hold of Shen Manting’s hands gently before saying, “Xiao Yue’er will sleep with you guys tonight.”
Mrs. Shen glared at him reproachfully before stating, “Run along.”
