Chapter 790: Bow
The daughter of the Duke of Luntan was about to join Camino as a military wife. What an exciting gimmick!
Even though many media outlets wanted to come in for interviews and coverage, Aiden and Xiao Shenbin had specifically screened them. Now that they were lucky enough to cover the auction, the media was in an uproar. They were convinced that this piece of news could blow up the entire world!
Zhong Qianqian’s eyes were utterly green and swollen from jealousy. She clenched her fists so tightly that her nails dug into her flesh.
She could only watch from the side as the honorable Duke Eton walked into the auction hall, accompanied by both governors. After greeting Chi Yang’s grandfather, only then did Duke Eton greet the leaders of the military base.
After that, Duke Eton walked toward Chi Yang.
Chi Yang, who had always been calm and collected, finally displayed the nervousness of a son-in-law meeting his father-in-law when he saw Duke Eton. His constantly austere handsome face became even more solemn and grave. His pair of profound eyes sparkled in the same solemnity and seriousness while his thin lips were tightly pursed. He was so nervous that Nuannuan could feel that her Big Brother Chi Yang’s handsome face was about to freeze up.
How could she bear to see Big Brother Chi Yang suffer like this?
Just as she was about to walk down from the stage to help, Duke Eton took the lead and held Chi Yang’s hand. The words that came out of his mouth were extremely friendly and sincere.
“Chi Yang, I’m sure you know about Sunny’s background. She doesn’t have any family here. Even though I know you’re busy as a soldier, I still hope that you can spend more time with her and love her with all your might. As your father-in-law, I’ll be leaving her in your care!”
After saying that, he gave Chi Yang a grand bow. Chi Yang, who had always been solemn, nearly leaped up like a frightened cat.
Many said that fathers-in-law would get more and more displeased at their sons-in-law. Usually, when a new son-in-law met his wife’s parents for the first time, the father-in-law would have to use his authority to threaten the son-in-law, suppress him, and finally talk to him sincerely before accepting him as one of them. At least, that was what the tradition of Camino preached.
However, as a father-in-law with such a powerful background, Duke Eton was very amiable from start to finish. Not only was he amiable, he even bowed to Chi Yang.
In the most solemn and sincere form, he entrusted his daughter to the love of her life.
This was what a proper father-in-law should do.
As common sense dictates, now that women have risen in status in both society and family, most women are still happy after marriage.
Especially henpecked men who listened to their wives’ every request after getting married. They would be more concerned with their wives’ parents more than their own parents.
Our current society was no longer the same society with its conservative culture. Back in the day, if one’s daughter got married, she would not be able to return home. She would have to suffer in her in-laws’ house for the rest of her life. Therefore, the husband’s father-in-law found it necessary to suppress the son-in-law first.
The dynamics between husband and wife were different now. If he wanted to entrust his daughter to someone else, it would be unreasonable for him to scold his son-in-law.
Therefore, when they saw how sincere and kind the duke was, they could not help but feel envious of Zhong Nuannuan.
Even though she was adopted and picked up from the streets, she could tell that Duke Eton truly loved his daughter. That was what made him bow to Chi Yang, someone much younger than him.
Many young ladies’ eyes started flashing in an envious green.
This was the most touching move a father could make!
All the guests were convinced by the Duke’s magnanimity.
Chi Yang quickly took off his peaked cap and placed it on his waist. He reciprocated with another deeper bow at Duke Eton…
