Chapter 64 – I Like… Knitting Wool
Upon entering his study, Xi duan calmed down. Even if Duan Shu Tong did not like Pei Ruo Wei anymore, it was impossible for him to be with Xi Duan.
Pinching the bridge of his nose, Xi Duan was about to settle down to deal with some work, but then he heard a knock at the door.
Xi Yu opened the door to the study and then poked his head inside through the opened crack. When he saw Xi Duan sitting behind the desk, he smiled ingratiatingly and ran over to sit on the opposite side.
With a wicked smile, Xi Yu said, “Uncle, I heard that you went to pick up Miss Pei.”
Xi Duan corrected him with a wooden expression, “It was to pick up your Duan-ge.”

“Of course, of course,” Xi Yu nodded frantically, but his smirk revealed his true intentions, “Uncle, you are already twenty-seven years old.”
Twenty-seven years old, yet he has never even had a relationship. It sounded a bit pitiful when spoken out loud.
Xi Duan: “And you are only fifteen. Keep your mind on your studies.”
Since the relationship between the uncle and nephew pair has warmed up, Xi Yu was not afraid of Xi Duan. But he thought his uncle’s temperament was rather awkward. He’s obviously being good to the other person, but he wouldn’t let the other person know.
With a snicker, Xi Yu said, “Grandpa and grandma are dead, there’s no one to help you take care of your marriage. How about we get Duan-ge to help out? He knows a lot of people. Maybe he can help me find a good aunt…”
“Xi Yu.” The man’s gaze was sharp as he issued a warning.
The teenager knew to quit while he was ahead, so he shrugged his shoulders and said, “Okay, okay, I won’t talk about it anymore.”
In any case, he planned to ask Duan-ge for help before school starts again for him.
The teenager was extremely motivated. When Duan Shu Tong woke up early the following morning, he saw Xi Yu squatting outside the door of his room.
“What are you doing?”
Xi Yu quickly stood up and leaned in close to his ear, “Duan-ge, I need your help with something.”
Seeing his sneaky appearance, Duan Shu Tong couldn’t help laughing and said, “Tell me.”
Xi Yu grabbed on to his arm and headed for downstairs, “Let’s eat while we talk.”
Duan Shu Tong: “…”
Just a moment ago, the boy was acting all secretive as if he didn’t want anyone to know, but now he was practically putting on a show of it. The thoughts of young people were too changeable.
Seeing that there was no one in the living room, Duan Shu Tong asked, “Your uncle and the others aren’t here?”
“They all went to work.”
Duan Shu Tong asked suspiciously: “Why didn’t you go?”
“It’s almost the end of August.” Xi Yu tugged him to a seat and then diligently served him congee. “School starts in two days. I have to go back to Yan City. Uncle said to rest and readjust my state of mind.”
Duan Shu Tong smiled and swallowed a spoonful of congee, “All right, tell me, what’s the matter?”
Xi Yu crossed his arms on the table and said very bluntly: “I want to find an aunt for myself, but you know how my uncle is. He only knows how to work every day. Before he took an interest in Miss Pei, but now Miss Pei is pregnant. I bet you know a lot of ladies. Why don’t you help my uncle find someone?”

The chopsticks in Duan Shu Tong’s hand stalled for a moment. Then he smiled slightly and asked, “Does your uncle know that you’re this concern about his marriage matters?”
“He knows, ah!” Xi Yu said without a flicker in his expression. “I talked to him about it last night, and he didn’t refuse either. He’s too embarrassed to tell you himself, so I took it upon myself to come to you.”
Looking at the teenager’s expectant eyes, Duan Shu Tong lowered his gaze with a bit of embarrassment. All of a sudden, the bowl of congee in his hands didn’t seem so fragrant any more.
Duan Shu Tong could somewhat understand what Xi Yu was thinking. The boy was just trying to compensate for his previous ignorance that caused him to be hostile towards his uncle.
But the most important detail of all this was that Xi Yu had not refused.
Duan Shu Tong suppressed the sudden astringency that rose up in him and ate a few more mouthfuls of congee before raising his head and pretending to be relaxed about the whole affair: “I won’t help in vain.”
Xi Yu was pleasantly surprised: “If you have any demands, just say it!”
Duan Shu Tong put down the bowl and chopsticks, wiped the corners of his mouth, and said lightly, “I’m going to move back home later, and I have a lot of luggage…”
“Leave it to me!” The teen said with great enthusiasm.
Duan Shu Tong studied the boy’s physique and found that the Xi family had really good genes. Both the uncle and nephew were tall and had long legs. Xi Yu was only fifteen years old, and he was already nearly 1.8 meters tall.
The boy had answered too quickly. It took a moment for the request to sink in, and then he reacted, “Duan-ge, everything is dandy here, why are you moving back?”
“The tenant is gone, so shouldn’t I move back?”
Xi Yu paused, “Does Uncle know about this?”
