The moment Tao Mu stepped through the door, the crowded Li family home suddenly fell silent.
Dozens of pairs of eyes glanced over. Tao Mu’s figure paused slightly, and he kept getting the feeling that at a certain moment when everyone in the Li family looked at him at the same time, he seemed to be standing in front of an X-ray machine. From head to toe, not a single spot was missed, even down to the bone and flesh were seen through.
You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )
It was honestly a bit scary!
Tao Mu subconsciously squeezed his hands and took a breath.
“Brother Mu, you’re here~” Li Xiaoheng’s twin brother and sister jumped up from the sofa and rushed in front of Tao Mu.
Probably seeing that Tao Mu was a little nervous, little sister Li blinked her big doe-like eyes, turned to the greeting gifts that Tao Mu was holding in his hands, and said kindly, “Brother Mu, you brought us gifts again?”
It would have been better not to mention this. As soon as this matter was mentioned, Tao Mu became a bit embarrassed as well. Because he did not expect that so many people would come to the Li family home, the preparations for the greeting gifts were obviously not enough.
At this moment, even Mr. Tao, who was a sophisticated socializing expert, didn’t know what to say. Obviously, his life experience and socializing skills have not been updated to the “mother-in-law meets son-in-law” page. Completely unprepared, Tao Mu even had a moment of brain downtime. So that he failed to respond to little sister Li’s greetings in time, instead he looked at Li Xiaoheng subconsciously.
From the moment he entered the door, Li Xiaoheng was watching Tao Mu’s every move with all his attention. Of course, he didn’t miss this moment of confusion and subconscious request for help.
Li Xiaoheng stepped forward, stretched out his hand to take the greeting gifts from Tao Mu, and stuffed it directly into his little brother’s hands. Instead of answering, he asked, “I’ve only been out for less than an hour, why are there so many people at home?”
The uninvited elders of the Li family spoke up immediately, and even the explanation seemed to have been negotiated in draft: “The company’s annual meeting is about to be held. We just want to order a customized outfit to wear at the annual meeting. It just so happens that your parents invited the designer to come over, so we came together as well.”
The white haired old gentleman of the Li family and the old madam of the Li family sat on the sofa, examining Tao Mu with a kind smile, and said smilingly, “So this is your partner, right? The young man is quite handsome indeed.”
Tao Mu maintained a polite smile, greeted the two elderly people warmly, and then thanked them. With a polite appearance, it really echoed the image of a junior who came to visit the elders for the first time.
Everyone picked up on the unease Tao Mu deliberately leaked under his gentle and courteous performance. This was also Tao Mu’s subconscious performance after seeing so many elders of the Li family, and he thought it was the most suitable reaction for this occasion.
Sure enough, after seeing Tao Mu’s humble, polite and gentle side, the elders of Li family were extremely satisfied with Tao Mu’s performance. They all felt that although Tao Mu was very talented in business and had a net worth of tens of billions at such a young age, he was not like some young people who gained success at a young age, prideful and arrogant.
Only Li Xiaoheng could feel that Tao Mu’s gentle and humble appearance concealed a strong sense of unease and discomfort, and even a vague bit of anger and embarrassment.
In front of many elders and peers in the family, Li Xiaoheng, who didn’t want to take the blame, squeezed Tao Mu’s palm without any intention of hiding, and explained with a smile, “I didn’t expect there would be so many people in the family home. I told Xiao Mu that there were only my parents and younger siblings at home, letting him know not to be nervous.” As a result, so many of you gathered over without even a heads up. Now it was impossible not to be nervous even if he didn’t want to.
Tao Mu also came back to his senses at this time. He said with a warm smile, “It’s all because of my lack of etiquette, excuse me for my presumptuousness.”
“It’s not presumptuous at all, and you have not disturbed us either.” Li Xiaoheng’s youngest aunt smiled and said, “To be honest, we’ve all been waiting for this day for many years——”
Before she could finish speaking, she was interrupted by her husband who was sitting next to her: “So Mr. Tao just has an affinity with our Li family. There is no need to make an appointment, such a large family could just get together naturally. It can be seen as the saying goes, those not belonging to the same family don’t enter the same family. Dad, don’t you think so, too?”
Li Xiaoheng’s youngest uncle helped his wife, who almost blurted the big truth out, to cover up as well as took advantage of the situation and dragged his father-in-law into the water.
Old Mr. Li nodded slowly, calmly took out the red envelope that he had prepared for a long time, and said with a smile: “You are a good child. Xiao Heng being with you…..”
When old Mr. Li spoke to here, he gasped as if he had difficulty breathing, and continued: “…..as business partners, I am very relieved.”
“As your first time visiting, this is a little bit of us elder’s sincerity.” Old Mr. Li put the red envelope into Tao Mu’s hand and said with a smile, “I hope your cooperation will last long and well.”
Old madam Li waited for old Mr. Li to finish speaking, and she also took out the red envelope that had been prepared long ago from her pocket and handed it to Tao Mu together.
From the mouths of their son and daughter-in-law, the old couple also learned that their eldest grandson was in a relationship with the child. However, the child was young and thin-skinned, and didn’t seem to want to announce it in front of the parents. So he had refused to agree to visit the Li family home this whole time.
This time, Li Xiaoheng was finally able to coax him to come for a visit. While the elders of the Li family wanted to watch, they didn’t dare to speak too blatantly. Lest the child got angry and settled accounts with their grandson afterwards.
Thinking of this, the elders of the Li family looked at Li Xiaoheng in unison. Those eyes all held resentful and impatient gazes for a certain someone’s failure to meet expectations…..looks that Li Xiaoheng had never seen since he entered kindergarten!
With old Mr. Li and old madam Li starting the example, the rest of the Li family also took out red envelopes and gave them to Tao Mu. When Tao Mu came, he really didn’t expect to encounter such. Receiving a pile of red envelopes, and also recognizing the crowd of people. The whole process developed inexplicably, and Tao Mu was a little dazed.
After receiving the red envelopes, Tao Mu felt quite embarrassed. Seeing the younger members of the Li family who were also sitting in the living room and looking at him curiously——Li Xiaoheng’s younger brothers, sister, nephews, nieces, etc——he also wanted to give out some red envelopes to coax the children.
Only to be stopped by Li Xiaoheng’s youngest aunt. The youngest aunt who had almost misspoken just now took Tao Mu’s hand and said nonchalantly, “You don’t need to give red envelopes when you come to visit for the first time. The rules of our Li family are that if you are single, no matter the age, you don’t need to give red envelopes to juniors.”
When the youngest aunt said this, she also deliberately glanced at Li Xiaoheng who was beside Tao Mu the whole time, and spoke in a, according to herself, very small voice that was actually very loud: “This nephew of mine has always refused to date. Us elders even guessed in private whether the reason this stinky boy will not date is because he does not want to give out red envelopes, so despite these many years he won’t date, go on blind dates, or get married? But it turns out that it wasn’t that this boy didn’t want to date, he just had too high standards for finding a partner, so he had to pick the best one. It seems he just didn’t like those people I had introduced to him before…..”
The youngest uncle coughed several times, and kept jabbing the youngest aunt’s lower back with his elbow. Hinting at his wife to stop talking. The youngest aunt became annoyed at being jabbed and waved her hand to slap away the youngest uncle’s paw, and asked angrily, “Why do you keep jabbing me? Don’t you see me talking to Xiao Mu?”
You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )
The youngest aunt didn’t want to pay attention to the youngest uncle, and rolled her eyes at him. Turning around, she continued to hold Tao Mu’s hand and said, “If you are really feeling apologetic and want to give red envelopes to the children, as your auntie, I will not stop you. As long as you discuss it with Xiao Heng, whenever you want to give out red envelopes, isn’t it up to you? The men in our Li family are very obedient on this point. If you are really anxious, it can actually be arranged this year…..”
Tao Mu was instantly shocked as if struck by lightning. Subconsciously, he wanted to deny it all.
I’m not, I don’t, youngest auntie, don’t talk nonsense!

Thank You for the new chapter (´∩｡• ᵕ •｡∩`) ♡
I’m waiting for the results of CEO Li returning to the family home after settling Tao Mu and subsequently hammering the sky because his family made his Mu Mu uncomfortable after all the effort he went through to coax him. There’s a decent chance he won’t even wait.
“At this moment, even Mr. Tao, who was a sophisticated socializing expert, didn’t know what to say. Obviously, his life experience and socializing skills have not been updated to the “mother-in-law meets son-in-law” page. Completely unprepared, Tao Mu even had a moment of brain downtime.” Hahahaha 😅 no matter how experienced and savvy you are, in front of your in-laws you turn into an innocent little lamb! I know I would have freaked out and said something stupid because of awkwardness. Tao Mu is still a champ!
Youngest Auntie.. you’re the best 😂😂😂
Dang.. help them tie that knot 😂😂😂
