Reincarnation: I Married My Ex’s Brother - Chapter 732 - God's Assistance
“That won’t happen. Aren’t Uncle Yan and Auntie Yinbing very nurturing?”
“He can play, but you can’t.” Zhuang Long said the truth. “He will be creating his own daughter and you want to help him raise his daughter.” Zhuang Long asked him, “Do you think this is possible?”
Was it possible?
Of course it was impossible!
“Oh, damn it!” Zhuang Qilin was very irritated. He was in a gloomy mood. He sighed and said sadly, “Then your son can only be a bachelor.”
Zhuang Long could not help but laugh. “How old are you? Why are you thinking so much?”
Zhuang Qilin remained silent.

Along the way, the father and son chatted here and there. Unknowingly, they arrived at the restaurant. After parking the car, the three of them entered the restaurant and ordered several seafood dishes. Xiao Li and Zhuang Qilin loved seafood, but Zhuang Long did not.
Zhuang Long had a glass of white wine in front of him. He ate something and stared at the wine. After hesitating for a long time, he still did not drink it.
He had not drunk alcohol for many years and had almost forgotten the taste of alcohol.
Zhuang Qilin and Xiao Li did not force him.
During the meal, it was mostly Zhuang Long talking to Zhuang Qilin or Xiao Li talking to Zhuang Qilin, but Xiao Li and Zhuang Long did not talk much. After the meal, Zhuang Long went to pay the bill and the three of them left the restaurant. Zhuang Long was afraid that Xiao Li would say that she was going home, so he quickly said, “Let’s go shopping. Qilin, do you have anything you want to buy?”
Zhuang Qilin was a mischievous person. He could guess his father’s real goal, so he naturally had to give him face.
After thinking about it, Zhuang Qilin said, “I’ll probably want a hat, a pair of sneakers, and a watch.” He had countless of these things, but in order to matchmake his parents for a while, Zhuang Qilin didn’t mind having another one.
“Then we’ll buy it.”
Zhuang Long sat in the driver’s seat consciously. Xiao Li hesitated for a moment before following him into the car.
They went straight to Macy’s.
Zhuang Long rarely went shopping in such a noisy place. His things were usually sent to the door. Compared to the mall, Zhuang Long loved his laboratory more. However, he had no choice. For Xiao Li and Zhuang Qilin, he could only endure his discomfort.
Xiao Li was a woman after all. When she saw the dazzling array of goods, she became happy.
Zhuang Qilin casually picked some things. He suddenly said, “Mom, didn’t you want to buy a bracelet? Let’s go take a look?”
A few days ago, Xiao Li had indeed said that she wanted to buy a bracelet.
Zhuang Long gave his son a praising look. This was simply giving him a chance to perform. Zhuang Long also said to Xiao Li, “Since you’re already here, go take a look.”
He had already made it clear. If Xiao Li still rejected him, it would seem unreasonable.
Hence, the family of the past walked into a luxury jewelry shop. Xiao Li’s skin was fair and her wrists were thin. Zhuang Long felt that she looked good wearing anything. Xiao Li tried a few designs but was never satisfied. Zhuang Qilin quickly said to Zhuang Long, “Dad, why don’t you choose one for Mom?”
He spoke in English, and the sales ladies in the shop could understand him.
Xiao Li was very famous. She was in the entertainment and business newspapers every two to three days. The moment she entered the store, the staff recognized her. However, unlike what was written on the report, the person who went out with her was not Best Actor Bruce, but a man who looked like a mixed-blood Asian.
The boy’s greeting revealed this person’s identity.
This young and handsome man was actually Clarice’s ex-husband, the famous but low-key Zhuang Long.
Seeing that the salespeople were all looking at Zhuang Long, Xiao Li could not help but glare at Zhuang Qilin.
Zhuang Qilin was fearless. He shrugged and even openly gave his father a look. Zhuang Long immediately took action. He walked to the counter and stared at the dazzling bracelets on the counter. Finally, he chose a pure gold bracelet.
The round bracelet was designed to look like a tree leaf. Every small leaf was embedded with an aqua blue diamond.
The price was not cheap either.
Zhuang Long pointed at the bracelet and said to the counter lady, “We would like to try this bracelet.”
“Okay, Mr. Zhuang.”
The receptionist put on a pair of black gloves and carefully took out the bracelet before passing it to Zhuang Long. Zhuang Long took the bracelet and motioned for Xiao Li to extend her hand. Xiao Li first looked at Zhuang Long before her gaze landed on the bracelet. She said awkwardly, “Change it. This doesn’t suit me.”
Xiao Li had never worn such bright jewelry.
Zhuang Long insisted. He said, “I think this looks good on you.”
Xiao Li thought of something and her gaze softened slightly. She stretched out her left hand which only wore a wristwatch. Xiao Li said, “I’m wearing something on my right arm that causes an obstruction so I’m using my left arm.”
Zhuang Long understood another meaning.
She meant that she would always wear this bracelet.
To be honest, Zhuang Long had never been so nervous when he put the ring on Xiao Li. After all, at that time, Xiao Li was only the mother of his child and not the woman he loved. But now, it was different. These terrible things between him and Xiao Li really matched the saying that was widely circulated online—
In the past, you ignored me. Now, you can’t match up to me.
These words floated past Zhuang Long’s mind…
He was horrified.
Xiao Li stared at the bracelet on her wrist with a happy gaze, but she hid her emotions. Zhuang Long stopped letting his thoughts run wild. He touched the bracelet and said, “Your hands are fair, so this is perfect for you. How about we buy this?”
Zhuang Long’s tone was light, as if he was afraid of startling something.
Looking into Zhuang Long’s expectant eyes, Xiao Li actually could not say no.
She opened her lips and wanted to say yes, but Zhuang Long was afraid of hearing rejection, so he turned around and said to the counter lady, “This is it. Pay by card.”
The bracelet was quite expensive, but to Zhuang Long and Xiao Li, it was nothing. It could not compare to a strand of hair on a cow. When she left the mall, Xiao Li could not help but secretly touch the bracelet. She felt a little sad. In this life, other than the ring, this was the only time she received Zhuang Long’s gift.
If he had received this gift before the divorce, Xiao Li would not have divorced him no matter what.
There was an ice cream shop by the street. Zhuang Qilin was a child after all, and he insisted on eating ice cream. Zhuang Long brought him to queue up. The father and son were in the queue, and Xiao Li was talking to someone on the phone. When they were in the queue, Zhuang Qilin told Zhuang Long, “Let me tell you, my mother doesn’t like roses and likes tulips. She doesn’t like black, nor does she like the fragrance of peaches. When you send things in the future, be careful not to step on mines.”
Zhuang Long pricked up his ears and remembered it. He swore that he would not make a mistake in the future.
“Oh, and my mother likes ice cream.” He pointed to the sign above the shop and said, “Caramel ice cream.”
Zhuang Long listened quietly and silently condemned himself again.
Although he lived with Xiao Li for many years, he did not know anything about her hobbies.
