Chapter 7.1 – Finding Glowing Beauty in Books (书中自有颜如玉)

Hi everyone, I am finally back from my travel and a shade darker too! It was indeed a super hot summer with lots of nature, trekking and walking under the hot sun. Lucky for us, by the time we got to the last destination of the vacation, summer ended and the cool Autumn air was a blessing to us…. Perfect way to end the summer vacation in my opinion. For those whom have been following my other blog on my travel adventure, thank you so much for your support and hope that you had enjoyed reading about those interesting places that we have visited as much as I had enjoyed the exploration and sharing them with you.

Today, Lan Ning and Yan Ru Yu aka Teacher Xing Xin is also back. So, is Lan Ning able to get Ru Yu to start working on his draft? How is she going to do so? Read on and enjoy the short read today. 

I will be heading back into the workforce again tomorrow, so bear with me while I try to find time to work on the translation as well. The next 4 months would be a very busy months for me at work as we try to wrap up the year and having to work on the planning and budgeting for the following year. 

Till the next post, be well!

Chapter 7.1: Condolences

Yan Ru Yu is at home. After he opened the door, arrogantly he looked outside and saw Lan Ning: “You are here to ask for the draft again?”

He was wearing only a plain black casual sweater that really look more like a cloth hanger. But it looks especially good on him. Lan Ning after seeing him, seems like her anger has been reduced by half.

She lifted her hand and show him the beautifully packaged cakes. She smiled at him: “I think teacher might be tired from writing, so sending some gifts to you.”

Yan Ru Yu swept a glanced at the tray on her hand. He opened the door for her. She step sideway into the house.

Lan Ning gave a small chuckle. The first step battle plan, successful!

She went into the house and put the cakes on the glass coffee table in the living room. Then she open them one by one. “Strawberry cream, Green Tea mousse, Tiramisu and Orange Cheese.”

The colourful cake with the sweet aroma of the cake, looks really attractive. Lan Ning lifted her eyes and looked at him, just like a child traffickers in the abduction. “Want to eat? After you finished your draft, these are all yours.”

Yan Ru Yu sat down opposite of her on the sofa. He gave a faint smile and asked: “These cakes are now on the coffee table in my living room. Do you think you have the ability to stop me from eating them?”

Lan Ning’s mouth bent a nice arc: “Do you think you can eat them faster or it is faster for me to destroy them?”

Yan Ru Yu frowned a little than then restored: “I can go out and buy them myself.”

Lan Ning smiled: “A Taurus is so lazy. I guess you will not bother to go out and buy.”

Yan Ru Yu: “………”

Seeing that he had been beaten, Lan Ning felt the thrill in her heart!


“Teacher, best that you go and write. More relaxed and pleasant.” Lan Ning laughed and give her advised. Yan Ru Yu silently looked at her for a while, got up and left.

Lan Ning seeing this, quickly stopped him: “Where are you going? Do you really want to go out and buy? This does not conform Taurus lazy people ah.”

Yan Ru Yu replied without looking authentic: “Going back to the room to write.”

Lan Ning was stunned for a moment and then shouted to him: “It is better for you to bring it out here to write. I feel more at ease watching you write.”

Yan Ru Yu: “………….”

He then brought his laptop onto the long dining room table and really starting writing.

The house is very quiet. Only the sound of the keystrokes that is particularly clear.

Lan Ning did not dare to disturb him. She even unconsciously lowered her breathing. She sat on the living room couch, holding her head watching him.

The reason, this person is really good looking. Especially now with the serious work profile. Charismatic to the max. Lan Ning looked at him for a while, could not help it but took out her mobile phone from her handbag. She silent the phone and surreptitiously took a photo of him.

This teacher Xing Xin is really good looking. If his photo is posted on Weibo, the number of fans will roar every minute…..

She enjoy the photo for a while and then exit the album. She open up her game to play.

Time goes by slowly, quiet and beautiful.
