Chapter 2489: Dad’s So Fierce (3)
Thankfully, the Zhai family’s genes were good, and even among the older children, the three children didn’t appear short.
San Bao was a girl and matured relatively earlier and was now the tallest amongst the three children.
Although Da Bao and Er Bao hadn’t undergone puberty, they were still considered tall among their peers.
Seeing that their younger sister was taller than them, Da Bao and Er Bao secretly tried to win against their competition. Every time, they made sure to finish the fresh milk that Qiao Nan gave them.
How could they be shorter than their younger sister?
The Zhai family was tall to begin with, and because they had not let all that milk go to waste, Da Bao and Er Bao finally grew tall and slender and were now the same height as San Bao.
The triplets were now high school students, and San Bao was like a flower about to blossom, whereas Da Bao and Er Bao were like young and tender trees. The three children were extremely eye-catching.
But as the children aged, so did their parents.
Now that she was at the age of wanting a grandchild, Zhai Hua started to pressure Jiajia and Chen Feng to get married. They had already been dating for five to six years. That was more than enough.
Did they really want to get past the seven-year itch before getting married?
Thankfully, Chen Feng and Jiajia had already made their plans to get married a month after the National Day holidays.
The sudden bomb threw all the adults into a frenzy.
Was getting married just a matter of talk?
They had to take wedding photos, prepare their wedding invitations, think of who to invite, where to hold the banquet, what to prepare for the banquet, and so on. It was terribly complicated.
As long as Jiajia was willing to get married to Chen Feng, Zhai Hua didn’t mind getting busy. After all, she could always pull her brother and sister-in-law along to help her out.
Of course, the Zhai family’s triplets naturally became the flower boys and girl since Jiajia and Chen Feng were getting married.
Da Bao didn’t feel much for being a flower boy and eventually decided to let Er Bao and San Bao take on that responsibility instead.
San Bao was already in high school and was capable of analyzing situations. That was why she had asked such an embarrassing question about whether to address them as brother-in-law or sister-in-law.
Time had been kind on Qiao Nan, who was nearly fifty-four. Not only did she still look like a young lady, but her face was also still tender and soft and didn’t look dry or wrinkled at all.
Qiao Nan didn’t look any older than a woman in her forties.
In the face of her daughter’s question, Qiao Nan laughed. “You can call them whatever you like, as long as all three of you address them the same way. Why don’t you ask Jiajia this question and see how she replies and what she prefers?”
“Okay!” San Bao’s eyes lit up. That was the best solution.
San Bao quickly ran over to find Jiajia, who was in the midst of her wedding photoshoot with Chen Feng. “Sister, after you get married to Brother, should I address you as ‘sister’ or ‘sister-in-law’?”
The moment Jiajia, who had been trying on her veil, heard that question, she decisively answered, “Address me as ‘sister’. Your brother will be your brother-in-law.”
Although they were about to get married, there was no way she was going to let Chen Feng have her younger siblings.
Chen Feng, who had just finished wearing his suit, didn’t know how to react upon hearing that.
Alright, he loved his younger siblings, and Jiajia was going to be his wife and the mother of his future children. If Chen Feng didn’t give in to her, who would? “Yes, you can address me as
‘brother’ or ‘brother-in-law’.”
San Bao clung onto Jiajia. “Sister, Brother-in-law treats you so well.”
When she grew up, she wanted to find a boyfriend who would treat her just as well, take care of her, and give in to her whenever conflicts arose.
Why was her father, Zhai Sheng, not the perfect husband in San Bao’s eyes? Well, perhaps only her mother would be able to stand a man like her dad in this entire world.
Thinking about how their parents were always together and couldn’t be separated, San Bao always felt like the three of them were redundant.
No matter the situation, her dad was always on her mom’s side.
She wasn’t afraid of angering her father. After all, she would simply be sent to the military for more training. But she was doomed if she ever angered her mom. Her dad would then become a devil and torture all three of them to death.
Understanding that their mom was the true boss at home, the three children never caused any trouble for Qiao Nan, and neither did they go through a rebellious period to worry Qiao Nan.
Between Qiao Nan and Zhai Sheng, San Bao felt that the three siblings had little room to breathe.
Yes, if she was going to find a boyfriend, she had better find one like her brother-in-law. Her father… was better off staying with her mom.
Jiajia pinched San Bao’s nose without saying anything. In her opinion, San Bao was still young. Dating and marriage were far in the future for San Bao.
She didn’t want to tell San Bao too much as that would cause her to get into an early relationship. That would only worry her aunt.
Jiajia knew that she was crazy for her younger siblings, but her uncle was crazy for his wife. She couldn’t afford to offend him.
If San Bao were to get into an early relationship because of her…
Jiajia shivered, not daring to even consider the consequences.
Her mom had already told her a long time ago that her aunt had the highest position in the Zhai family, but the one she had to watch out for was her uncle.
“Sister, you look beautiful in your wedding gown.” San Bao looked dreamily at Jiajia’s wedding gown.
“What’s the hurry? Don’t you have one too?” The difference was that San Bao was wearing a mini wedding gown while she was wearing an extravagant one. “Alright, you’ll get your chance in the future. Listen to me. You can’t afford to hurry such things. If you get anxious, your mom will get anxious as well. Then, your dad will get you even more anxious.”
It sounded like a tongue twister, but both Jiajia and San Bao understood what she meant.
San Bao stuck her tongue out. “Sister, can we not mention my dad at such a time?”
Jiajia smiled. “San Bao, do you dislike my uncle because he’s too fierce to you guys, or because he’s always snatching my auntie away?”
“Both.” San Bao thought about it for a while. “Dad is really fierce. Besides, it’s really not good that he’s always snatching Mom from us.”
She couldn’t understand why a grown man was always trying to snatch her mom from his children.
“Hahaha…” Jiajia couldn’t help but burst into laughter. Jiajia had personally witnessed her younger siblings try to snatch their mom from their dad many times to no avail. She had heard her mom talk about it often too.
Jiajia wasn’t even sure whether she should express sympathy for her three younger siblings.
