Upon seeing the message, Ye Chen's legs turned soft he almost kneeled.
His mother had returned, but why must it be such a coincidence? Why, just whyyyy!?
What should he do now?
If he didn't go to pick his mother up, he would have to see his mother looking at him with hidden bitterness all day long after he got home while whining to her doting husband in passing. Yep…… Once wouldn't be enough, she would probably whine thrice a day to him.
Thinking so, Brother Chen could feel his flesh aching in advance.
But if he went to pick her up, he wouldn't be able to complete his mission. His mom would arrive at seven o'clock. After he took her home and accompanied her, it would be noon already.
How would he have the time to get the last life point anymore?
The death system couldn't stand watching this scene and said, "Wouldn't it be nice if you could go together with Ren Jing to meet your parents."
Ye Chen said, "……You want me dead?"
Death system laughed and said, "Haha, that won't happen. Ren Jing is an excellent person. If I am your parent, I'll be very fond of him."
Ye Chen, "……"
"Is Ren Jing not an outstanding person?"
Ye Chen replied, "……He is."
Death system asked again, "Then, will (your) parents not like him?"
Ye Chen put on a fairly ghastly expression as he said, "……They'll like him."
The problem was, this kind of 'like' was absolutely out of the ordinary!
Death system, "Then, just go for it!"
"Get out!" Ye Chen didn't dare to think about the mess in his head. He then said, "My mother has always wanted to hold grandchildren. If she knows that she won't be able to see her grandchildren, and that her son's wife is a guy instead…… She's going to kill me!"
A male wife? Oh ho! The death system whistled.
As expected, would he need to give up on this last life point?
Ye Chen became afraid upon thinking about it. His 'death' not long ago didn't cause any harm to his body, but it left a lasting mark in the depth of his heart.
He doesn't want to give up on any of his life points or leave Ren Jing.
It's hard to tell which emotions were more intense, but there was no doubt that both of them existed.
He mustn't give up, be it one, two, or even three life points!
Ye Chen stared at his cellphone for a long time. Ren Jing obviously noticed, so he asked, "Is something wrong?"
Ye Chen paused for a moment, then he raised his head and said, "It's…… My parents have returned."
Ren Jing was quite surprised and asked, "What time will they arrive?"
Ye Chen said, "Seven o'clock……"
When they finished grabbing their luggage, it was already six o'clock in the morning.
Ren Jing said, "What a coincidence."
Ye Chen said with a bitter face, "Yeah……" It was such a coincidence that he wanted to cry.
Ren Jing considerately asked, "Are you going to stay here and wait for them?"
There was only an hour left before the plane landed. If there wasn't any delay, he would have breakfast first, then wait for them.
It would be nice for the family to return home together.
Ye Chen nodded and didn't say anything, but his face was full of grievances.
Ren Jing softheartedly said, "Let me accompany you."
Ye Chen's eyes immediately brightened up.
Ren Jing was very considerate to Ye Chen. He said again, "Don't worry, I'll leave when the plane lands." He implied that he wouldn't meet Ye Chen's parents.
Ye Chen couldn't think of any good ideas at the moment, but it was not a bad idea to delay for awhile. Who knew if there might be a turning point somewhere?
Ye Chen said, "Let's have breakfast first."
Since they got off the plane, Ye Chen had always been holding Ren Jing's hand, he feared that Ren Jing might run away.
Even so, it was still two and a half hours away before three hours…… Just thinking about it made him feel down.
Ren Jing took him to have breakfast.
They didn't go out of the airport, just made do to find something to eat.
The not-so-delicious meat sauce noodles tasted even worse because Ye Chen ate them while feeling very nervous.
Ren Jing said, "It's alright if you don't want to eat it, I'll let A Sen go out and buy something delicious."
Ye Chen responded, "No need to trouble him."
Ren Jing said, "You didn't eat much on the plane, so now–"
Ye Chen smiled at him as he replied, "I slept really well, so I'm not hungry."
Ren Jing couldn't help but have a slight grin in his eyes.
"Actually, I wanted to sleep some more," said Ye Chen regretfully. If only the flight was twelve hours, he would have definitely completed the mission already. Ah, how miserable, it was only ten minutes short QAQ!
But his words which fell into Ren Jing's ears became different in meaning.
'Slept so well, yet wanted to sleep some more'…… Sounds like a spoiled child to him.
Ren Jing's heart felt so sweet that the noodles he was eating tasted especially delicious.
Seeing Ren Jing enjoying his meal so much, Ye Chen unexpectedly felt the meat sauce noodles wasn't that bad anymore. He didn’t want Ren Jing to worry about him, so he ate most of it.
"I'm full!" Ye Chen looked at the time. He couldn't help but feel nervous and said, "There is half an hour left."
Ren Jing said, "Take your time. It should be at least 20 minutes before your parents come out." They would need to walk around after getting off the plane. They would also need to check out (the luggage) and go through security check for a while.
Ye Chen knew inside his heart, 20 minutes wouldn't be enough for him. It would be better if they took one hour……
It was a good thing that Father and Mother Ye were unable to know his thought, otherwise they would be so angry that they would beat this filial son up! This son of theirs even wanted them to walk around for another hour and a half. Just don't let them come back earlier, please!
Time passed in a flash, making Ye Chen became more and more nervous. What should he do now? Would he need to take Ren Jing to meet his parents?
We should drop that extremely dreadful subject first. Ren Jing himself wasn't mentally prepared either!
They were…… Um…… It seemed that they hadn't officially confirmed their relationship, yet Ren Jing would get to meet his parents first?
Were they not skipping some stages?
It seemed that he and Ren Jing skipped quite some steps since the beginning. They even went into bed before falling in love……
Ahhhh, now isn't the time to think about that!
Realizing that Ye Chen was nervous, Ren Jing asked him, "What's the matter?"
Ye Chen turned around to look at him. He opened his mouth, but was unable to say anything in the end.
Ren Jing tried to say something, but was interrupted by the sound of the announcement outside.
"Flight UA089 from New York is delayed due to XXX and is expected to arrive at 9:35……"
Ye Chen abruptly stood up and was almost unable to keep his physical contact with Ren Jing because he was too excited.
Fortunately, the death system reminded him, "Your distance, pay attention to your distance!"
Ye Chen immediately sat down. He sat down sideways and unexpectedly sat on Ren Jing's thigh.
Ye Chen immediately thought of standing back up, but he was afraid that he would jump too far out of the range of physical contact. If that happened, what would he do? There were still two hours to go before it completed.
Since Queen Mother's flight was late, victory was in sight!
Hence, Ye Chen used his amazing willpower to control his butt. He almost didn't dare to flinch at all.
He moved slowly and wanted to go the seat next to Ren Jing, but who was going to guess that Ren Jing suddenly grabbed Ye Chen's waist instead.
Ye Chen, "!!!"
Ren Jing's Adam's Apple bobbed for a moment. He changed the subject and said, "Don't worry, it's only two hours late."
This wasn't about being late or not, but……
Ye Chen turned around and met Ren Jing's eyes. Ren Jing was enticed by his moist eyes and kissed him just like that.
The two were in a private room so they didn't need to fear that someone was going to see them. Thus, they kissed for quite a long time.
When they parted, Ye Chen finally sat beside him. He lowered his head, feeling that he was about to die because of embarrassment.
However, even when he was being so shy like this, he still stealthily reached out to Ren Jing's hand.
Ren Jing immediately clasped on Ye Chen's hand. Ren Jing's heart felt absolutely indescribably wonderful.
Ye Chen was in a trance for awhile, but he was still worried about something. He asked with a soft voice, "It's still quite early, so there shouldn't be anything you have to do yet, right?"
Truthfully speaking, Ren Jing still had a lot of things he needed to do. Now that he had just returned after being away for several days, a lot of people were lining up to see him.
But these big things were not as important as his darling.
Ren Jing answered, "There isn't."
Ye Chen breathed out a sigh of relief and added, "Because if I need to wait here for two hours by myself, it's going to be very boring."
Ren Jing softly replied, "I'll accompany you."
Ye Chen conveyed, "……Thank you."
"No need to thank me," said Ren Jing. "I'm the one who should thank you."
Ye Chen's heart jumped.
Ren Jing added, "You gave me a chance to stay with you a little longer."
Ye Chen was dazed. Afterwards, he turned around awkwardly. He didn't dare look at Ren Jing, but his ears were red and his lips desperately curved up as he felt self-conscious.
The death system had a toothache because of the sweetness. It said, "Good luck, it seems that the random mission is going steadily."
Ye Chen's heart was still fluttering as he stated, "Yes, I'm pretty lucky."
Death system added, "Today's daily mission is quite simple, it's a supplementary mission."
Ye Chen finally snapped out of his thoughts, then asked, "What is it?"
Death system announced, "I'll give it to you once you're finished with the random mission." That way, the random mission wouldn't get refreshed.
Ye Chen, "Alright!"
These two hours passed with so much happiness that Ye Chen felt like only two minutes had passed instead.
The death system announced the completion of the mission. Three life points were finally in his hand.
What a mission full of random twists and turns!
Fortunately, it had been completed!
Ye Chen breathed a huge sigh of relief.
At this time, the death system released a new mission for him, "Daily mission: introduce Ren Jing to your mother, the reward is one life point."
