Xia He felt relieved to hear what Qiao Mei said.
She felt that she had to preempt Qiao Mei about these things, so that Qiao Mei would not feel that members of the Xia family were all very rude.
“By the way, elder sister, you havent said what kind of person Eldest Aunt is” Qiao Mei asked.
“Ah! Eldest Aunt! Eldest Aunt doesnt have much of a temper.
She doesnt really like to talk but shes a very upright person,” Xia He said with a smile.
It seemed that this eldest aunt was an easy person to get along with.
Xia Jun had three sons and two daughters.
Xia Fang was the youngest daughter and this eldest aunt was the second child of the family.
Qiao Mei admired eldest aunt very much as she had heard that eldest aunt was not just in a civilian post in the army.
“Thats great,” Qiao Mei said.
“I always forget that I have two paternal aunts.
Eldest Aunt is more manly than any man!” Xia He said.
Xia Zhe chuckled at the side.
“What are you laughing at Am I wrong” When Xia He saw Xia Zhe secretly laughing away, she turned to ask him with her hands on her hips.
“I see that youre not afraid that Eldest Aunt will hear you and punish you by making you do physical training again,” Xia Zhe said.
When they were young, they were most afraid of their eldest aunt coming home.
Their eldest aunt always said that the children of the Xia family must be in the best physical condition regardless of their gender.
When they were younger, their eldest aunt often brought them out for training.
“If all of you went through physical training in the past, then how did your elder brother become a professor” Qiao Mei asked curiously.
“Elder brother fell ill when he was 16 years old.
After that, he could not undergo high-intensity training anymore, so he studied hard and became a professor,” Xia He explained.
No wonder the whole family is in the military and only your elder brother is a scholar,” Qiao Mei said with a smile.
“Elder brother used to…”
Before he could finish speaking, he heard the door being kicked open with a bang.
The door panel even bounced several times when it hit the wall.
“Xia He, you are indeed lying to me!” Kong Li said from the door.
Every morning, Xia He would use the excuse of needing to go out to buy food for Kong Li to get out of the house.
Xia Fangs house had a gas stove, but Xia He was afraid that Kong Li would blow up the house at home by using the stove, so she went out to buy food every day.
It was the only time of the day that Xia He could come out to have some fresh air and take a walk.
Today, Xia He had told Kong Li that she was going out to deal with the matter of finding a marriage partner for Kong Li, and that she would take a longer time.
Kong Li could not hold back her anxiousness after hearing that.
Given that the matter was about finding a marriage partner for her, she definitely wanted to take a look as well.
She followed Xia He all the way to the main alley, but in the blink of an eye, Xia He turned into another small alley and disappeared.
She did not have an easy time going from house to house, eavesdropping at the doors before she could hear where Xia He was.
“I knew that you must be lying to me! Pretending youre coming out to find me a marriage partner! Wheres my marriage partner” Kong Li shouted from the door.
When she saw Xia Zhe, Kong Li felt both happy and sad.
Xia He had such a handsome younger brother, but she had hidden the fact from her sister-in-law.
If Xia He had told her earlier, Qiao Mei would not have had any chance at all!
At the thought of this, Kong Li started to look at Qiao Mei fiercely.
“Why are you messing around here!” Xia He said while frowning.
“Whos messing around! Youre the one lying to me!” Kong Li said as she pointed at Xia He.
Xia He took out 20 dollars from her pocket and gave it to Kong Li.
“Go buy yourself some food with the money and then go back.
We still have something on.”
Kong Li took the money and stared fiercely at Xia He.
“I heard everything.
Youre going back to the big house.
I want to go too!”
“Why do you want to go What right do you have to go there” Xia He said in disgust.
“Why cant I go! Since youre my sister-in-law, I can go to your Xia familys big house!” Kong Li said.
“Then let her go.
Elder sister, bring her along then.” Qiao Mei said as she gave Xia He a look.
Xia He could understand what Qiao Mei meant.
After thinking about it, she decided to let Kong Li follow her.
There was no harm in having Kong Li following them.
Since her relatives were all gathered today, she could let everyone see what kind of life she had been living all these years.
This way, everyone would be more understanding when she got a divorce.
Thinking of this, Xia Hes originally tense brows relaxed.
“Alright, you can follow us then,” Xia He said.
Kong Li did not think too much about it.
She even thought that Qiao Mei was speaking up for her because Qiao Mei was afraid of her, which meant that it would be even easier for her to snatch the bangle if she wanted!
