“I still have the money to marry you!” Xu Qing forcefully handed the money pouch back to Li Changfeng, speaking with a firm tone. He hadn’t reached the point where he had to ask the groom for money for their marriage!! This was his dignity!! The dignity of a man!!
“It’s alright. Besides, I’ll be the one supporting you from now on!” Li Changfeng stubbornly refused to take it, teasing Xu Qing with his words.
Xu Qing had forgotten that in this world, his identity as a ger was merely a substitute for a woman! He would still have to bear children!!
At the thought of himself with a big belly, Xu Qing shivered all over, feeling terrified!
Li Changfeng noticed Xu Qing trembling and thought he might be feeling cold. “Is everything alright? It’s chilly in this spring weather, with heavy morning dew. You might catch a cold easily. We’ll have to wait until I settle the family matters before we proceed. Let’s go outside. It’ll be even colder if we stay here for too long.”
“Settle family matters?” Xu Qing looked at Li Changfeng in confusion. Now that he had become the groom, why was he still talking about settling family matters?
Without hesitation, Li Changfeng knew what was on Xu Qing’s mind. “Settling family matters means that even if something happens in my family, I am no longer directly involved in the conflicts. It reduces the tensions at home.”
Once Li Ama and Father Li encountered any trouble, the Li family would definitely split. As a man, as long as he didn’t separate from the family, even if he was “married” away, he would still have a share of the family’s assets.
“Married away? What a fitting term! It’s perfect!” Xu Qing laughed happily. He took it as Li Changfeng’s acknowledgment of marrying him.
Seeing Xu Qing’s foolishly happy smile, Li Changfeng thought about his decision and considered Xu Qing as his future family. He asked, “I want to leave my family and start anew. What do you think?”
This is not a decision he can make on his own. It’s better to discuss it with the other party. The eldest brother in the family has many children, and the younger brother Li Xiao’er hasn’t married yet. Leaving his family would relieve some pressure, but it might be unfair to Xu Qing.
“Alright, since I can afford to support you! No worries!” Xu Qing deliberately threw back Li Changfeng’s words about supporting him.
“Okay, no problem!”
Li Changfeng allowed Xu Qing to playfully tease him. Indeed, he had not mistaken this person. He was kind and reasonable. Besides, as a man, he should dote on his spouse, especially considering Xu Qing’s slim figure. “He needs to be taken care of!” Otherwise, how would they have children in the future?

“What?” Xu Qing didn’t catch what Li Changfeng said. He rubbed his ear. It was too safe in this era. His ears were not as sensitive as they were during the apocalypse!
Li Changfeng smiled and didn’t answer him. He walked to the tree where the red cloth was tied, gently untied it, then waved to Liu Ama and Xie Ama. After they nodded in acknowledgment, he turned his head and looked at Xu Qing, who was almost a head shorter than him.
“I’m leaving first. You can go out later. Xie Ama will come to pick you up,” he instructed with a hint of awkwardness. “Remember to choose an auspicious day and let me know…”
After saying that, he patted Xu Qing’s dazed head and quickly walked away. It was already bright outside, and he had to leave early. Otherwise, people would talk a lot if they saw a ger and a man meeting for a blind date.
“So, how is he? Satisfied?” Xie Ama happily approached and linked arms with Xu Qing, noticing the money pouch in his hand.
“Hey, is this what that kid gave you?”
This money pouch is clearly the kind used by men, it’s plain and lacks any sense of aesthetics.
Only now did Xu Qing realize that he forgot to give the money pouch back to Li Changfeng. “I forgot to give it back to him…” Li Changfeng’s tall figure was no longer visible on the street.
Xie Ama took the money pouch from Xu Qing’s hand, weighed it in his hand, and instantly became even more satisfied with Li Changfeng!
He put the money pouch back into Xu Qing’s hand and looked at him meaningfully. “You’ve encountered someone easy to get along with. This is probably all of his savings.”
Xu Qing was startled. “Why would he give me all his savings?!” He even wanted him to “marry” him earlier!
“What’s going on in your head?! He’s worried that you, as a ger, would have a difficult life without any money. Marriage is a lifetime commitment, and he doesn’t want to mistreat you. This money is for you to make a good impression!”
Xie Ama kept poking Xu Qing’s head, making him cover his head and scream in response.
“But I’m the one who’s supposed to marry him! He doesn’t need to do this.” Fool, they haven’t even set a wedding date yet! He dares to give him money privately, isn’t he afraid that Xu Qing might run away!
However… Xu Qing put the money pouch in his pocket and felt a warm feeling in his heart. “Haha, even without this money, I will make proper arrangements.”
Li Changfeng practically flew home, full of excitement. He needed to talk to his parents about splitting the family and then wait for Xu Qing to send him a message about when to come over.
The thought of becoming a family with Xu Qing once he stepped through the door made his heart warm.
