Chapter 1502 Bring Out Her Dowry
As the group of adults surrounded the two children and looked at them, Xia Fan did not seem to mind as he was not scared of anyone he could recognize. However, Xia Xing was different. She had a fiery temper. True enough, she frowned not long after and looked like she was about to cry.
“Sister Feng! Quick! Carry Xia Xing to the room!” Qiao Mei suddenly shouted.
Feng Hua quickly wrapped Xia Xing in a blanket and brought her upstairs. Then, she came down and brought Xia Fan back to the room as well.
“Your reaction is really fast…” Xia He lamented.
“When you become a mother in the future, you’ll also be able to tell what your children want.” Qiao Mei gave Xia He a meaningful look.
Xia He stood shyly beside Deng Fan. The two of them had just gotten married and had not discussed the topic of children yet. She had thought that Xu Lan, or more likely Jiang Shu, would be the first one to urge them to have children, or perhaps even Liu Fen. She did not expect Qiao Mei to be the first one to raise this topic!
“What nonsense are you talking about! Xia Zhe, can’t you stop her!” Xia He said as she glared at Xia Zhe.
Xia Zhe immediately shook his head. It would be easier for him to stop the heavenly emperor than Qiao Mei!
“It’s so rare for Xia Zhe to be back. Grandfather said that since the whole family is in town, he wants to organize a family gathering. The entire family can get together and catch up,” Xia Wen said.
“Sure. I’m free any time. I have a long break this time round, so I can spend more time with all of you in the capital,” Xia Zhe said.
It was Qiao Mei who had very little free time recently. She still had to meet a client in the next two days, but it was just a small deal and she did not really care about the few thousand dollars. She decided to ask Li Gui and Qian’e to go on her behalf, so that they could try it out and treat it as practice. Qiao Mei could not be the only one among them who could meet clients. Otherwise, what would happen when Qiao Mei could not be around in the future?
Furthermore, Qiao Mei really wanted to spend more time with Xia Zhe. Ever since the two of them got married, they had never been able to spend a long time together!
“I’m fine too. Grandfather can decide on the timing,” Qiao Mei said with a smile.
Xia Jun made the arrangements very quickly. The next day, he asked the second and third sons’ families to come to Xu Lan’s house for dinner. Xia Yao did not have time to come to the gathering. Everyone was already used to it. Xia Yao always had to go on business trips at work. Perhaps he was the one who was hard to meet up with.
Everyone from the second son’s family brought gifts with them. Xia You had very generously bought the newest model of rocking cradle for Xia Fan and Xia Xing, one for each of them. This rocking cradle cost about 80 dollars each! Xia You did not even buy it for her own children.
Xia Wan also brought a lot of toys with her and they did not look cheap either. The materials used to make the toys were all of the best quality.
“I’m sorry to have made you spend so much money.” Qiao Mei accepted these gifts while feeling embarrassed.
“Not really! You don’t know about my mother. She even wants to bring out her dowry and give it to the children!” Xia You leaned towards Qiao Mei and whispered.
Although Liu Fen’s maternal family was not considered rich, she grew up in a happy family. Her parents and siblings were all very nice to her. When she got married, her mother had given her two silver bangles meant for children.
She had originally wanted to keep it for her own children, but she did not expect to give birth to four children in total. There were not enough to go round, so she thought about giving the bangles to Qiao Mei.
“I never expected Second Aunt-in-law to be so generous this time!” Xia He lamented.
Everyone from the eldest and second sons’ families were all here. Even the Old Master had arrived, but there was no one from the third son’s family. Although the family had already split up, they were all still blood-related relatives after all. There was no need to take things too far.
The third son’s family members only arrived when everyone was about to start eating. However, it was not Xia Guang and Xia Xing who came, but Zhou Luo with Xia Lu and Xia Yan in tow.
The living room, which had just been bustling with activities, immediately fell silent. Everyone looked towards the doorway. Zhou Luo did not care that everyone was looking at her and even walked smilingly to Xia Jun’s side to make small talk with him. Xia Jun could only nod reluctantly.
“She’s really shameless! It’s our family gathering today. What has it got to do with her! I’d rather see Xia Xing here!” Xia You complained.
Lu Huai, who was sitting beside her, patted her hand and indicated that she should stop talking. If she quarreled with Zhou Luo now, the Old Master’s expression would probably look even worse.
“Alright, let’s sit down and eat,” Xia Jun said after coughing twice.
