Chapter 5: Engaging in a battle (交锋)

What does it feel like to have idol disillusionment?

That exactly is the feeling that Lan Ning is feeling now!

She begins to read Xing Xin book since she was in college. If his words brought her the feeling of anthropomorphic, it is the feeling of gentle, well-spoken gentlemen. She though that he would be the same in person but in this case, the reality is…….

As the saying goes, piled up with the blood and tears of wisdom!

“Mr. Yan, is this your girlfriend?” A busybody aunty of a neighbor coming back with a nursery school child is sticking to them for gossip.

“It’s a vicious curse.” Yan Ru turned to open the door. Sheepishly Lan Ning smiled at the neighbor. Before he closed the door, she squeezed in.

Yan Ru throw the keys onto the table and arrogantly turned to her: “Why do you come in?”

Lan Ning took a deep breath and told herself to be patient. “Teacher Xing Xin, you have a manuscript that is due. Don’t know when can you submit it?”

“You are here to follow up on the manuscript?” Yan Ru walked into the kitchen and put the things from the shopping bag into the fridge. “Who told you my address?”

“Editor. She said that the draft is due before the 15th of next month.” Lan Ning did not follow him into the kitchen. She stood in the living room watching him.

Yan Ru closing the door with some displeasure frown on his brow. “I really should have moved out of City A.”

Ha ha.

Lan Ning sneer in her heart. Although she was very unhappy, she still want to keep her smile: “Actually, I do not want to disturb Teacher. But you do not return my message and I cannot reach you on the phone…..”

“Those few harassing phone call are from you?” Before she could finished her sentence, her speech was interrupted.

Lan Ning: “……..” I will forbearance.

“That is not harassing phone call……”

“I have always treat unknown number as harassing phone calls.”

Continue to endure…… “I hope that Teacher will keep my number.”

“Why? Convenience for you to follow up for my draft?”

Fed up!

“Then you turnaround ah! What is this with playing dead? Have the ability to drag the draft, you have the ability to answer the phone ah!” After Lan Ning angry roar her heart content, she felt much more comfortable. But the feeling lasted less than three seconds before she regretted it.

One second mouth comfort, following up on the draft is a failure.

Yan Ru came out from the kitchen and gave her a smile: “Maybe you do not know. I am a Taurus. Taurus biggest feature is lazy!”

Lan Ning: “……….”

To drag the draft from the black hole, she will fight. She will not be fooled by this routine.

Smiling….
“Teacher, you told editor that you are sick. But in fact, you went to Japan for a holiday, right?”

Yan Ru cocked his brows at her. “Cannot it be that I recovered from my illness and after that I went for a holiday?”

“Since you have time to travel, why not you have time to complete your draft?”

“Because Taurus is lazy ah….”

Lan Ning: “…………”

Taurus is large with what you have gone through. So you have to black it!

Lan Ning was silent when Yan Ru was making the statement putting him into good mood. He smiled: “I did think about writing in the morning but every time I opened my eyes, it is already noon.”

Who would believe that!

Lan Ning mouth curvature increasingly stiff: “Teacher, I saw you in Hokkaido up by six in the morning and do the broadcast gymnastics.”

Yan Ru frowned and carefully corrected her: “First, that is not broadcasting gymnastics but a very popular online stretching exercises. My work caused me to sit for a long time in front of the computer. So I developed the habit of exercising. Second, you also know that it is in Hokkaido. Who goes abroad to travel and sleep till noon?”

Lan Ning: “……..”

Simple reason. Cannot be argued.

The draft drag king of East Asia definitely!

After the first round of battle, Lan Ning blood trough is almost empty. The entire living room fell into silence.

She felt no-head, soft although with some humiliation. But who is she. She had to beg to turnaround.

She patted his cheek and so naturally smile again: “Teacher Xing Xin, in fact, I am your faithful readers. In Hokkaido when I don’t know who you are, I should not have said that you as 路痴. I apologies to you.”

路痴 (pin ying: lu chi) – describe as someone with no sense of direction

“路痴” The word made Yan Ru raised his eyebrows and stood up: “I am not……..”

“I know that you are not 路痴. You just do not have a good sense of direction only.” Lan Ning smiled at his remarks and repeat the word again. Yan Ru frowned and looked at her in silence.

Lan Ning continue to smile at him apologetically. “If I have offended you, I hope that you can also temporarily set it aside. After all, the public is the public. Private is private. Your readers are still waiting for your book.” For example, today her….

Yan Ru went to sit down on the couch. His mouth twisted up to a point that almost laughing: “What if I cannot put it aside?”

Lan Ning ha ha ha ha. “Teacher, you are an adult. How can you be so stingy?”

“Taurus will be vengeful.”

What do all the training and preparation constellation is okay! And Scorpio do not hold any grudge?

  1. At this rate we will soon know all the traits of Taurus…always has something to refute back, definitely worthy of the “draft drag king of East Asia” nickname
