Already So Famous
Reality proved that becoming parents was inevitable when a couple didn't use contraception and spent every night indulging in their passionate activity.
When Mo Ziyan saw the two lines on her pregnancy test, she was completely dumbfounded. It took her quite some time to realize that she was actually becoming a mother. She had been jealous of Mo Zixi in the past, but she no longer had to be.
"I know you're happy, but don't go overboard," Gu Qingli reminded gently. "You're a mother now, so don't be careless, OK?"
Mo Ziyan nodded her head, but she still couldn't hide the excitement on her face.
"We need to tell Mom and Dad as soon as possible so they can be happy too."
"Let's go home for dinner tonight then," Mo Ziyan suggested.
Mo Ziyan had always imagined how life would be like as a parent. Although she had taken care of Xingzhe in the past, she wasn't satisfied.
Now, things were perfect. She was about to have her own little family. It was an amazing feeling.
Afterwards, Mo Ziyan gave Tangning a phone call. But, she did not explain anything and Tangning did not suspect anything.
That night, when the couple returned to Hyatt Regency, Mo Ziyan was extremely excited and proud. This made Gu Qingli quite worried, "I told you not to act so carelessly. Walk properly."
When Tangning saw how Gu Qingli reacted, she immediately guessed what was going on. So, before Mo Ziyan got the chance to say anything, Tangning asked, "Are you pregnant?"
"Mom...if your guesses are always so accurate, then there's no surprise!"
"Your timing's great, your Brother Two's coming home tonight and he hasn't met Qingli yet. You can take this opportunity to meet each other."
Since the two men were both educators, Tangning assumed they would have quite a lot of things to chat about.
Gu Qingli nodded his head. He was actually very curious about the Mo Brothers and had wanted to meet them for a long time, but he never had the chance.
However, his gaze remained on Mo Ziyan the entire time because he was worried that she'd forget she was pregnant.
Because of this, Tangning decided not to question Mo Ziyan and question Gu Qingli instead, "Now that you have a kid, what about your marriage?"
"I'm not going to lie, Mom, we already registered our marriage two months ago."
"You're not holding a wedding?" Tangning didn't notice that Gu Qingli had called her 'Mom'.
"Ziyan said no one in her family has ever held a wedding, so she didn't want to waste her energy on it either. After all, a happy marriage isn't defined by formalities like that," Gu Qingli replied gently; he was always calm and polite.
Tangning nodded her head at this response, "Since it's your choice, I won't interfere. Now that Ziyan is pregnant, you need to take good care of her. She may be capable, but she's not mature enough; she needs someone by her side to constantly remind and guide her."
"I will definitely take good care of her, you don't have to worry, Mom."
Tangning didn't actually have much to worry about because Gu Qingli was mature, reliable and very caring.
On the other hand, Mo Ziyan's personality had a lot that needed changing.
But, Tangning didn't want to nag her
A little later, Mo Zichen arrived home with Qian Lan. When he first saw an unfamiliar man in his home, he was a little surprised, but he quickly regained his composure.
After all, nothing could be hidden from him, not even this brother-in-law.
"Oh, it's Professor Gu."
As soon as Gu Qingli saw Mo Zichen, he knew he wasn't an average person. Especially when he looked into his eyes, it appeared as though he could completely see through a person.
"Brother Two," Gu Qingli greeted according to seniority.
"Second-sister-in-law..." Mo Ziyan immediately announced her good news when she saw Qian Lan, "...I'm pregnant. You're about to become an auntie..."
Mo Zichen looked at Gu Qingli. He couldn't believe they were so fast.
"I heard that Brother Two is a physics professor."
"I also heard that you've had a lot of achievements."
The two men were polite to each other, but Mo Zichen knew that being a professor was just a cover for Gu Qingli.
"Haiz...I never knew I was already so famous."
"Someone's had a crush on you for 4 years. So, your name's quite familiar in this household," Mo Zichen replied. "I've heard quite a lot about you. If you were another man, I would have paralyzed you by now."
Mo Zichen acknowledged Gu Qingli.
He built his own fortune, kept a low profile and never did anything reckless.
Based on these positive points, Gu Qingli was definitely worthy of his spoilt sister.
"Brother Two's overpraising me. If you have anything I can help with in the future, please let me know."
"Apart from Mom and Dad, you are the best moneymaker in this household. I may need to leech off you in the future."
Ever since Mo Zichen revealed his identity to Mo Zixi, his identity was no longer much of a secret at home, after all, he had been promoted to director, so his identity was already exposed.
Hence, it had been a long time since he went to school.
"Brother Two, it's bad enough that you've neglected us and deceived us for so many years, stop lying to my Brother Four," Mo Ziyan protected Gu Qingli. "My brother works at the Ministry of State Security, he's a pretty impressive person!" she explained to Gu Qingli.
No wonder Mo Zichen knew so much about him.
It seemed, from the moment that Mo Ziyan started having a crush on him, Mo Zichen had already uncovered his entire background.
But, of course, Mo Ziyan was home to announce the good news of her pregnancy today.
Now that Mo Ziyan was about to become a mother, Tangning no longer felt like she had such a huge burden.
"You were only married for 2 months and you're already pregnant. It seems, you're honestly fond of our Xingzhe. Do you really like children that much?" Mo Zichen teased, "Or do you want to tie down your husband now that you've finally got him in your hands?"
"I wouldn't be talking if I were you. Are you afraid that no one knows about your history? You waited 5 years for sister-in-law and I waited 4 years for Brother Four, so let's not tease each other."
"Now that I think about it, Big Brother's also quite pitiful too. He wasted 4 years and was still being deceived like a fool."
"Why is everyone focused on dissing each other tonight?" Tangning laughed.
Mo Zichen also laughed, but he eventually replied in seriousness, "Mom, we've made you worry over the years. Now that Yan Er has her own family as well, you don't need to worry anymore. You can place your focus on Dad so he won't torment us from now on."
"Let's wait until Yan Er safely gives birth first..."
Since she gave birth to three kids, how could Tangning let go so easily?
It was true that Mo Ting didn't want her to get involved with her children's lives, but what mother could truly do that?
In fact, if her three kids stopped needing her, it would actually make her feel quite empty...
And that emptiness could not be filled even by Mo Ting's love.
