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 pa.s.sing. 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 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 pa.s.sed with so much happiness that Ye Chen felt like only two minutes had pa.s.sed 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."
