Chapter 177: Aura suppresses her
Time flew by, and before they knew it, four days had passed in the blink of an eye. After resolving Luo Dawei's issue, everything returned to normal. Chu Tian continued to attend classes with Bai Xiaochun every day. During lunchtime, they would take a break at the milk tea shop. In the afternoons, Chu Tian would either go to the library or play basketball. Evenings became more eventful; sometimes, he would go to the bar to hang out, and other times, he would go for a leisurely stroll with Bai Xiaochun before heading to the bar.
As for Li Sisi and Bai Xiaochun, it seemed as if nothing had happened between them. Since that night when Chu Tian and Li Sisi had returned to the bar, they hadn't even entered it because Bai Xiaochun was waiting outside. However, when Bai Xiaochun suggested going for a ride, Li Sisi smiled and took her for a spin. Whatever transpired during their one-hour ride remained unknown to Chu Tian.
In any case, their relationship remained as close as before. They would meet every day, embracing and kissing each other. However, the popularity of the limited edition Rafah 20 had brought a wave of attention to the pure bar in recent days. Almost everyone now knew that this car was one of only five in the country, and one of them belonged to the lady boss of the pure bar.
Indeed, Li Sisi was merely the general manager of a pure bar. But public perception had gotten out of control. She had gone from being the general manager to being referred to as the lady boss of the pure bar. Everyone knew that there was a wealthy man supporting her, but his identity remained a mystery.
"Let's go and play another time," Chu Tian suggested.
"Sure, let's take a break and go," Bai Xiaochun replied.
At six-thirty in the evening, Chu Tian and Xiao-Gang greeted each other on the basketball court of Haicheng Medical University before joining Bai Xiaochun's side.
"Hehe, Hubby, you're too fierce."
Seeing the hot sweat running down Chu Tian's back, Bai Xiaochun giggled and handed him a bottle of water.
"That's true, aren't you? Don't you know better than me?" Chu Tian remarked.
"Pfft! Stinky hooligan!" Bai Xiaochun retorted, smirking as she playfully kicked Chu Tian.
Chu Tian smiled as he took the water bottle and drank half of it before asking, "Oh right, baby, what do you want to eat tonight?"
"Anything is fine," Bai Xiaochun replied, hugging Chu Tian's arm. "But let's go home and take a shower first. I want to see how hot you are."
"Alright, let's go home and take a shower, and then we can grab something to eat," Chu Tian agreed, and they left the place together.
"Ah? Go, go see your mother?" Chu Tian exclaimed in surprise.
It was seven o'clock in the evening, and in their room, Chu Tian, who had just finished showering, looked at Bai Xiaochun with a puzzled expression.
"That's right." Bai Xiaochun looked at Chu Tian with a smile, "Sunday is my mother's birthday, and we're the only two in our family. In the past, I spent my birthday with my mother every year. This afternoon, I called my mother. Even though she said she didn't want me to come back, I could tell that she really wanted me to be there."
"Then… hehe, my mother said that if I'm not busy with my studies, I can stay there for two days. And she asked if I could bring you along. She really wants to meet you. So, do you want to come back with me?"
"This…" Chu Tian scratched his head, looking at Bai Xiaochun's smiling face. "Baby, Sunday is Auntie's birthday. It's happening so soon."
"Okay," Bai Xiaochun nodded. "That's fine. If you're not ready. I understand that you're busy with your studies. We'll go another time when we have the chance."
"It's not that I'm not ready." Chu Tian scratched his head and said, "It's just it's a bit sudden. Are you going back tomorrow?"
"Yes, there's a direct flight tomorrow afternoon. If I miss it, it'll be the day after tomorrow. It's my mother's birthday. I want to spend more time with her."
"Then…" Chu Tian thought for a bit and said, "Does auntie know about my situation?"
"I don't know yet." Bai Xiaochun shook her head and said, "I haven't thought of a way to tell her. I said you were poor, but now that you're so rich, I haven't thought about it."
"Forget it." Bai Xiaochun smiled and continued, "Let's talk about it tomorrow. Let's go eat first. Let's go. My baby is hungry."
Nine in the evening!
In the room on the second floor of the bar, Chu Tian entered and found Li Sisi playing pool with Xia Mo. Without uttering a word, Chu Tian grabbed a bottle of red wine from the wine rack and poured himself a cup with a bang. Seeing this, Xia Mo chuckled and teased, "Oh, what's happening tonight? Why the need for a drink as soon as you arrive? Something's troubling you. Come on, let's have some fun."
Chu Tian smiled and replied, "What's troubling me? I simply wanted to have a drink."
"Alright." Li Sisi smiled and hit the black ball into the hole. She then put the club on the billiard table and said, "I was just about to write directly on my face. What's wrong? Tell me, didn't your quarrel with the big baby?"
"No." Chu Tian said, "We just finished dinner. She went to play with her sister."
"Then what happened to you?" Li Sisi took two empty glasses and poured Xia Mo and herself a glass of red wine. She sat down and said, "Then what's bothering you? You used to be so happy. Did your aunt come over today?"
Chu Tian took a sip of wine and explained, "Actually, it's nothing. Xiao Bai's mother's birthday is on Sunday. She wants to go home to celebrate her mother's birthday, and she wants me to go with her."
Xia Mo interjected, saying, "That's great. What's there to worry about? It's a good thing for my mother-in-law to meet my son-in-law."
Li Sisi agreed, "Exactly. It's a great opportunity for you and your sweetheart to go back together, buy some nice birthday gifts, and make your aunt happy."
"I know it's pretty good." Chu Tian said, "But, I'm… nervous deep in my heart."
Li Sisi reassured him with a smile, saying, "It's normal. Who wouldn't be nervous when meeting their partner's parent for the first time? You care a lot about your sweetheart, and you worry about her mother's opinion of you. The more you think about it, the more nervous you become. Just relax."
Xia Mo chimed in, adding, "That's true. The more you care about your sweetheart, the more concerned you are about her family's perception of you. This intensive concern only increases your nervousness. However, there's no need to be anxious. Your qualities speak for themselves. When your mother-in-law meets you, just tell her you have a girlfriend named Li Sisi, who is charming and exudes an impressive aura. She'll be completely astounded."
