Gao Xiulan looked at Mother Gu, and Mother Gu also looked at Gao Xiulan.
There was only one thought in their minds: this blind date was very good!

 Finally, I don’t have to worry about my daughter/son having to support the other family.
How wonderful.
Both families are loving and life will be better in the future.

So both of them had the impulse to nod.

As the woman’s parent, it is impossible for Gao Xiulan to take the initiative to bring up this matter.
Fortunately, Mother Gu is very kind, “Is the marriage between our two families going to be finalized? As soon as our Chang’an comes back, we can prepare for the engagement.
After all, I’m not old enough to get a certificate but if you want to change your age, you can do it.

“Cough cough cough…” Su Qinghe choked while holding her teacup.

When Gao Xiulan heard the voice, she couldn’t care about Mother Gu anymore, and hurried to give her daughter a pat on the back, “Why are you choking? Drink slowly.
How uncomfortable it is to choke.”

“Our Chang’an are also anxious about drinking water .
.” Gu Ma said with a smile.

Su Qinghe wiped her mouth and shivered when she heard this.
She didn’t know how things turned out like this.

Obviously, she just came over to see each other, and then she had to meet the other guy.
As a result, it seemed that the two of them were about to settle down immediately.

Although she doesn’t expect to find someone to fall in love with, she still has to look at him before making a decision.
What if the other party doesn’t fit the eye?

“Auntie, I don’t know when Comrade Gu Chang’an will come back.
Don’t I have to meet him?” She smiled shyly.

Mother Gu felt that there was no need to see him at all.
She thought it was good to see her.
She understands her son well, he must like this kind of girl.

Deputy county magistrate Gu said, “We want to meet again.
There is no need to change your age.
You are still young.
If everything works out well, get engaged first.” He didn’t think it was a good thing to get married before she was an adult.
It’s still a disadvantage for women.

Eldest Sister-in-law and Second Sister-in-law Gu also woke up from the shocking situation, and Second Sister-in-law Gu quickly persuaded, “Yes, Mom, Chang’an hasn’t come back yet.
Free love is popular now.
Let’s help make a match, and then they have to see each other.
Otherwise, Changan will think that we don’t respect his wishes.
Young men are always concerned about face.”

As for her son’s face, Mother Gu hesitated, and asked Gao Xiulan and Su Qinghe, “What do you think?”

Gao Xiulan, of course, is eager to settle down, but she doesn’t want to settle things before they meet the other person.
She was worried that what would happen if the son of this family was a crooked melon.
Sometimes it doesn’t work if you blow1Brag or boast too well.

“Then follow the rules and wait until the boy comes back to make a decision.
Anyway, we are not in a hurry.”

Su Qinghe finally breathed a sigh of relief.

Secretary Hao’s wife had a frustrated look on her face.
They have settled down.
What is she here for as a matchmaker?

They ate at Gu’s house at noon, Eldest sister-in-law Gu and Second sister-in-law Gu were cooking and the others were chatting in the living room.

The second sister-in-law Gu made a bitter face, “Sister-in-law, what do you think is going on? I thought that if we found a rural family with good conditions, mother won’t suppress us, and the family wouldn’t drag us down.
Now, mother are making comparisons with others.
It’s even more exaggerated than before.”

Eldest sister-in-law Gu had the most headache.
It stands to reason that parents will live with them in the future, and naturally, they will stick to them in the future.
Now…not only not sticking, but also sticking upside down.

“I think we have found another ancestor2someone to serve.!” There was a bit of complaint in her tone.

The second sister-in-law Gu looked a little embarrassed when she heard this.
She made the notice and she was the one who found the girl.
It turned out to be such a mess, which really makes people feel sorry.

During the meal, the two grandsons of the old Gu family also came back.

Gu Changzheng, the eldest, has a ten-year-old son named Gu Lei, and the second, Gu Changping has an eight-year-old son named Gu Lin.
Both of them came back from the county primary school.

Seeing how lively the family is, they circle the table excitedly. Fighting like crazy.

When Gao Xiulan saw the two boys, a warning light came on in her heart.
The eldest daughter-in-law and second daughter-in-law of the Gu family both gave birth to sons.
What if the Qing’er of their family did not inherit the constitution of giving birth to a son?

She began to hesitate in her heart about this marriage.

Although it is not rare to have a son, she also knows the importance of a son.

Mother Gu was a little annoyed by the two grandsons, she frowned and said, “Go inside, don’t make noise here.”

Gu Changzheng and Gu Changping hurriedly let their sons into the house.
It will save their mother from being unhappy and will cry again later.

The two children hurried to the house to read a comic book.
Mother Gu sighed at Gao Xiulan, “I made you laugh.
Boys are so rough.
I don’t like them.
I like girls who are cute.
But I didn’t have a girl.
Fortunately, our Chang’an is well-behaved.
My heart is satisfied.”

Gao Xiulan immediately beamed when she heard this, “My old lady gave birth to four daughters, and we, sisters have a very good relationship.
My mother doesn’t like my elder brother, so she dotes on me the most.
I also like girls.
It’s a pity that I gave birth to three boys, so I treasure Qing’er in our family.” Anyway, our family has no shortage of boys and girls.

Lin Shuhong and Ding Guihua almost laughed when they heard what their mother-in-law said.

However, when Mother Gu heard that she had given birth to four daughters, her envious eyes lit up.
This is really uplifting.
Maybe this girl inherited her grandmother’s physique.

Looking at Gu Qinghe, she was even more satisfied.

Su Qinghe smiled at her, feeling that there was something wrong with those eyes looking at her. She is underage now!

After having a hearty meal at noon, Old Su’s family was quite satisfied.
Second sister-in-law Gu smiled and said, “Our craftsmanship is average.
If Qinghe comes to our house in the future, we have to try your craftsmanship.”

Su Qinghe smiled heartily, she is not short of food.
Maybe when she wants to eat meat, she will do it.

Gao Xiulan sighed, “It’s okay for my daughter to cook, but I just feel sorry for that boy, Chang’an.
If he suffers hardships in the army in the future, he still has to remember the hardships of his wife at home.
How stressful.”

Hearing this, Gu Ma’s heart ached.
The third child was so pitiful that he was driven out to suffer, and his wife had to suffer at home.

Glancing at the second daughter-in-law complainingly, she said, “If Qing’er really comes to our house, there is no need to do anything.”

Gao Xiulan held her hand, “It’s all for the children.
I will also love Chang’an well in the future.
I’ll reserve good things for him.”

Gu Ma moved, “I’m also good to Qing’er.
I’ll buy her a bicycle!”

Su Qinghe: “…” Here we go again, here we go again.
Things haven’t been decided yet……

Second Sister-in-law Gu feels like being struck by lightning and then she looked at her man blankly.
Her man looked at the ceiling.

He didn’t make this happen.
What can he do?

Look at the eldest sister-in-law, who turned her head and went into the kitchen, ignoring her.
Second Sister-in-law Gu was so wronged that she almost cried.

Why did she do such a stupid thing before?!

This is more than just finding a little ancestor to come in, this is luring wolves into the house!

The blind date was very harmonious, and the members of the old Gu family sent the old Su family out.
Mother Gu also wrapped a matchmaker red envelope for Secretary Hao’s wife.

Anyway, she has identified this daughter-in-law and in-laws.

Secretary Hao’s wife’s heart, which had been numb just now finally blossomed, touching the red envelope in her pocket, and her happy eyes smiled into a line.

When the old Su family left and the Gu family entered the house, Mother Gu took her second son, Gu Changping, “Aren’t you working in machinery in your factory? Try to find a way to get bicycle tickets back.”

Gu Changping was stunned.
What does mechanical work have to do with bicycles? Oh, it has something to do with it… but it really doesn’t matter!

“Mom, we don’t have bicycle tickets.
It’s very difficult to get this now.”

Mother Gu looked at Gu Changzheng again, “Your public security unit must have it.”

Gu Changzheng said seriously, “Mom, I swear, our Public Security Bureau has only three bicycles.”

Eldest sister-in-law Gu said, “Mom, what do you want a bicycle for?”

Gu Ma sighed, “Didn’t I say, I want to get a bicycle for Qing’er? When our Chang’an settles down with her, if I get her a bicycle, she can easily come and see me.
Changan is not at home, so it’s good for me to see his wife.”

The whole family of the Gu family: “…”

The two sons and daughters-in-law couldn’t help but in the end pestered deputy county magistrate Gu to find a way.
He has many comrades-in-arms, so he can always get one.

Deputy county magistrate Gu asked his wife to think about the matter of his third son, so now he basically responds to every request. Anyway, as long as his third son is not raised and disabled, other things are trivial.

Besides, he is also very satisfied with the Su family’s marriage.
He himself used to be from the countryside, so he didn’t have any concept of family status.
As long as the children are good, the family background is clean, and the family is harmonious.
Su Qinghe, the child, looks good, too.
From his point of view, this child’s eyes are very clean, and doesn’t care much.
He is a good match with his stupid son.

Now he is worried that people will look down on his lazy, stupid son.

After Gao Xiulan arrived in town, she took Secretary Hao’s wife’s hand and kept thanking her, “I didn’t bring anything for this blind date.
I’ll ask my elder brother to send it to you later.
You are a great matchmaker.”

Secretary Hao’s wife felt guilty, she did nothing but lead the way.
Who knows how it went so smoothly? She can’t figure it out now.
However, when people thanked her, she could only accept it.
She smiled and said, “You’re welcome.
This is a natural fate, a match made in heaven.”

Apart from this, there is no way to explain how an old lady in the countryside and a wife of an urban cadre get along so well.

On the way back, Gao Xiulan took Su Qinghe’s hand, “Qing’er, we need to raise you well.
Don’t do anything when we get home.
Take care of yourself.”

Su Qinghe: “Mom, what did I do?”

Gao Xiulan After thinking about it, “Cook, don’t even cook, take good care.
Our family’s Qing’er will enjoy blessings.”

Then she said to the two daughters-in-law, “From now on, you will be more diligent at home and outside.
In the future, you will also have to rely on our Qing’er to grow your reputation.
She will be the county magistrate’s daughter-in-law in the future! The county magistrate’s family said that she is not allowed to work.”

Lin Shulan and Ding Guihua nodded honestly.
That’s right, how can you let the county magistrate’s daughter-in-law work? They should do more.

Su Qinghe said, “Mom, haven’t I met him yet? What if I don’t like him?”

“…then we’ll look again.
But Qing’er, I think their family is very good.
If that young man is handsome and tall and his character is not bad, it will be fine.
I am quite satisfied.”

Su Qinghe nodded, and she thought so too, but… “What if he doesn’t like me?”

“…Impossible!If he disagrees, I’ll make trouble.
The cadre’s family bullies us, ordinary people! “ Su Qinghe looked at the sky, and she felt that if the other party really looked down on her, she would tell her mother that she herself looked down on the other party.


“I wish, as well as everybody else, to be perfectly happy; but, like everybody else, it must be in my own way.”
