Chapter 13.1 – Finding Glowing Beauty in Books (书中自有颜如玉)

TGIF! Finally the week is over! It had indeed been a super busy, hectic, crazy and frustrating week for me at work. So glad that the weekend is finally here and I can finally rest my mind. And of course do some translations! Oh how I miss Lan Ning….

Very late post today. Apologies for that! 

No sign of Yan Ru Yu in today’s post. It is a refreshing and calm evening spend between Lan Ning, her friends, Ye Cheng and his band members. 

Enjoy the short read and hopefully, tomorrow, I would be able to complete another post. Have a fantastic Friday!

Chapter 13.1: Raiders

The restaurant that Dai Qing said is not the roadside kind of stalls but a cozy home-based small restaurant. Those few people walked for about five or six minutes before arriving to see the ‘Wang Family Fried Shop’ label hanging on the door.

“How did you find this place?” Qu Tong curiously asked while looking around. There are many houses along this small road. Very old kind of cottage that seems to be well over some years. The price for these houses must be very good.

Dai Qing said very proudly: “Following the wonderful smell to find it!”

Lan Ning said: “At the time, I just entered the club in the University when the president of the club invited us to eat. I heard that a lot of teachers are also here to eat.”

“We have also heard about it from the senior.” Ye Cheng looked at Lan Ning, curiously blinked: “Editor, What club did you joined in University?”

Did I not asked him not to call me, Editor? Lan Ning was a bit embarrassed. “I was pulled to join the animation club.” Because she specialized in Japanese, so many students chooses that as second element. Before she could decide what to join, she was dragged by her room-mate to join the animation club.

“Hey, then you were in costumes? Do you have photos?” Qu Tong asked with her shining eyes.

“No. I was in the logistic group.”

“…………….”

As they chat, they arrived at the restaurant. Dai Qing and Lan Ning have not come back to eat here since their graduation. Now being able to visit, is a very happy occasion. Unfortunately, as it is late now, many of the signature dishes have been sold out.

Ye Cheng seeing that the two of them were a bit disappointed, he quietly comforted them: “Never mind. Next time you find time to come over early. I will buy you ladies dinner here again.”

Dai Qing have her two words evaluation while smiling: “Nice man!”

Ye Cheng’s friends laughed and enthusiastically shared with them Ye Cheng’s gossip in the University.

The meal, in the joyous environment, every dishes that was served were quickly cleaned off the plate. Lan Ning stood up getting ready to pay for the meal. Ye Cheng quickly stopped her: “Editor, we have said that we will buy the dinner. I would like to pay.”

Lan Ning from the start did not intend to let the student treat them. Although she was stopped at the moment, she still intended to pay for the meal. “Here, Dai Qing and I are the only two whom are working. How can we let you guys pay?”

“Editor, although we are students, we are also working part-time.” The person who said this is not Ye Cheng but the band’s keyboard member.

Ye Cheng turned around and glared at him. “Don’t simply call. Who are you calling Editor?”

Jian Jian grinning authentically: “Oh, Student Ye Cheng, and the thing about you selling your novel online, does those girls admirer of yours in the University know about it?”

“I am not selling novel but I am a natural novelist, right?” Ye Cheng smiled at him. He turned to Lan Ning and pushed her back into her seat. “I will go and pay now.”

He took the bill and went to make the payment.

Coming out of the restaurant, the day has turned completely dark. They walked to the entrance of the University and they stopped.

“It is very late now. We shall go back first. Thank you for your hospitality.” Lan Ning turned to Ye Cheng and wave her thanks. Ye Cheng also waved to her: “The next opportunity we will invite you to Wang Family Fried Shop again for dinner. Be careful when on the road.”
