Cheng Yuanjing put down the teacup, couldn’t bear to listen anymore. Cheng Yujin also felt goosebumps all over her body. She stroked her arms calmly and smiled: “Second sister and Marquis Huo’s relationship is very close. It is a good thing that newlyweds are close and affectionate. Do you want me and Ninth Uncle to move to another place?”
“No need.” Cheng Yumo took Huo Changyuan’s hand and sat on the chairs opposite Cheng Yujin and Cheng Yuanjing. Although Cheng Yumo had the memory of her previous life, she had just been married in this life, and was still very shy. When she was at Jingyong Marquis Manor, she put on a new bride’s demeanor and wouldn’t take such initiative to get close with Huo Changyuan. But now in front of Cheng Yujin, for some inexplicable reason, Cheng Yumo couldn’t help but want to get closer to Huo Changyuan, as if getting back to their previous life.
Cheng Yumo pulled Huo Changyuan to sit down. Huo Changyuan wanted to struggle, but he was pressed by Cheng Yumo. After they sat down, Cheng Yumo smiled and asked: “When I came out just now, I saw the three of you talked very harmoniously. What are older sister and Ninth Uncle talking about, why are you smiling so happily?”
“Oh, this.” Cheng Yujin’s face was full of smiles. Her eyes bent into crescents, shining brilliantly. Huo Changyuan suddenly had a bad hunch, but before he could react, Cheng Yujin already said: “We just talked about the issue of addressing each other. Now second younger sister and Marquis are married, calling him ‘Marquis Huo’ seems too distant. Since we are now one family, we naturally have to address each other according to the family’s seniority. Second sister, don’t you think so?”
Cheng Yumo didn’t know what had happened just now. After listening to Cheng Yujin’s explanation, she felt it made sense and nodded subconsciously: “Naturally so.”
Cheng Yujin smiled triumphantly. Cheng Yuanjing glanced at her helplessly. Even so, his eyes were full of smiles.
Cheng Yujin continued saying: “Second sister’s thought is exactly the same as mine. According to the family’s seniority, I should call Marquis Huo’ second younger brother-in-law.’ But then Marquis Huo should call us’ eldest sister’ and ‘uncle.’ Marquis Huo, you won’t refuse, right?”
Cheng Yuanjing shook his head, “I don’t care about addressing.”
Cheng Yujin quickly turned around and glared at him. Without blinking an eyelid, Cheng Yuanjing immediately changed his narrative: “However, marriage is to tie two surnames. So changing the way of addressing is to show sincerity.”
Cheng Yujin was satisfied. She turned her head back to Cheng Yumo and Huo Changyuan with a smile. Cheng Yumo didn’t have any opinion. After hearing Cheng Yujin and Cheng Yuanjing’s words, she thought that everything made sense, so she nodded: “Elder sister and Ninth Uncle are right. If my sister called me ‘Marchioness,’ wouldn’t it be weird? A family shouldn’t be so distant.”

Cheng Yujin’s smile deepened. She looked at Huo Changyuan with bright eyes and asked again: “Second younger brother-in-law, what do you think?”
Of course Huo Changyuan didn’t want to agree. But Cheng Yumo was next to him, looking at him eagerly. After all, it was the wife he took the great effort to marry, who used her own body to warm him on the snowy night. Huo Changyuan still felt tenderness towards Cheng Yumo. If he rebutted her and didn’t save her face in public, Cheng Yumo would inevitably feel bothered after they went back, thinking that he refused because he still harbored old feelings towards Cheng Yujin.
Huo Changyuan couldn’t help but look at Cheng Yujin again. Cheng Yujin’s eyes were full of smiles, shining brilliantly. Huo Changyuan couldn’t stand the ridicule in those eyes, but also couldn’t help but want to obey—he couldn’t bear to make her disappointed.
Huo Changyuan was forced by multiple pressures and said grimly: “Naturally so. Since I have married Mo’er, I should follow the addressing of Mo’er’s generation. Ninth Uncle, eldest sister.”
Cheng Yujin’s eyes suddenly brightened, and she quickly turned her face aside. Otherwise, she would have been laughing on the spot. Cheng Yuanjing didn’t care about seniority at all. Hearing Huo Changyuan called her ‘uncle’ didn’t give him any feelings. But seeing Cheng Yujin so happy, he couldn’t help but gave her another helpless and pampering gaze.
Cheng Yujin managed to hold back her laugh. She turned her head and nodded very affectionately: “Yes, second younger brother-in-law.”
Cheng Yuanjing smiled even more.
Huo Changyuan felt so awkward after calling Cheng Yujin’ eldest sister.’ Fortunately at this time, the Old Madam’s mama came out and announced: “Ninth Master, eldest Miss, second lady, second Master-in-law, why are you here? The meal is ready. It’s time for lunch.”
Huo Changyuan let out a long sigh of relief and stood up quickly: “Okay, we are coming.”
Huo Changyuan got up, and Cheng Yumo quickly followed. Cheng Yujin was after them. Having satisfied, she stood up contentedly. Just after she suppressed the smile on her face, her forehead was knocked lightly by Cheng Yuanjing.
He stood before her and said indulgingly: “Naughty.”
Cheng Yujin looked up at him directly: “Ninth Uncle, I even made him call you’ uncle.’ How can you demolish the bridge after crossing the river1?”
Cheng Yuanjing glanced at her without hiding the smile in his eyes: “Don’t say such a nonsense next time.”
Do not read this novel at wattpad or other, places. Thanks!
Cheng Yujin refused to accept this statement. She walked next to Cheng Yuanjing and defended herself vehemently: “How can this be nonsense? Isn’t Cheng Yumo my younger sister? Huo Changyuan is Cheng Yumo’s husband, him calling me elder sister is natural. Why did it become nonsense?”
