Chapter 14 continued.....
“It looks like the groom is even more anxious than the bride.”
Wang Dong all of a sudden snickered, “You do not want to admit defeat?”
Guo DaLu glared at him before replying with a cold laugh, “I just think there is something odd.”
Wang Dong: “What’s odd?”
Guo DaLu: “I just think it is odd that every woman’s eyes seem to have some sort of problem.”
Wang Dong: “You are wondering how this girl could possibly like Yan Qi? You think he is ugly?”
Guo DaLu pondered over this for a moment. “You cannot say that he is really ugly. At least, his eyes are not ugly.” Actually, not only were Yan Qi’s eyes not ugly, they were very striking. In particular, when they held the glimmer of a smile, they looked like the clear waters of a lake shimmering under the spring breeze.
Wang Dong: “His nose is really ugly?”
Guo DaLu again thought over it before answering, “No, not really, but it looks like a meat bun when he smiles.” When Yan Qi smiled, his nose would always first crinkle up slightly, but not only did it not look like it meat bun, it actually made it seem very attractive.
Wang Dong: “His lips are ugly?”
With a surprising laugh, Guo DaLu said, “I rarely look at his lips.”
Wang Dong: “Why?”
Guo DaLu giggled, “Because his mouth is even smaller than Golden-Coat Pekingese’s.”
Wang Dong: “Having a petite mouth is a bad thing?”
Guo DaLu had to shake his head because he was not one to speak contrary to his conscience.
Wang Dong: “Then what is it about him that is physically unattractive?”
Guo DaLu mulled over the question for a long time before suddenly realizing that Yan Qi, from his head to his toe, was actually very good looking. Even his filthy pair of hands seemed more elegant than other people’s. Sighing, Guo DaLu admitted, “If he bathed more frequently, perhaps he actually would not be unattractive.”
Wang Dong laughed, “If he actually did take a bath, you may be in for a surprise.”
Guo DaLu also gave a little chuckle. “I really do hope, then, that he will surprise me one time.”
Wang Dong: “So if you think that he is not so bad, then what is wrong with Mei guniang taking a liking to him?”
Guo DaLu sighed, “Nothing. Nothing at all.”
A piercing cry was suddenly heard coming from the courtyard. It was Mei RuNan screaming, and she sounded like a cat that had just had its tail stepped on. Guo DaLu stood up as if he wanted to go outside to take a look, but he sat back down again. Smiling, he shook his head and said, “I know that grooms are all very anxious, but I did not think that Yan Qi would be so terribly eager.”
He had just finished his sentence when Yan Qi walked in. He walked in alone.
Guo DaLu: “Where is the bride?”
Yan Qi: “There is no bride.”
Guo DaLu: “If there is a groom, then there’s a bride.”
Yan Qi: “There’s no groom as well.”
Guo DaLu looked intently at him, then snorted, “Did the bride get frightened away by the groom?” All of a sudden, he noticed that there were three long fingernail marks on Yan Qi’s face, like he had been scratched by a cat.
