Chapter 14.1 – Finding Glowing Beauty in Books (书中自有颜如玉)

Happy Halloween! It is already the last day of the month! And it is Halloween! Anyone celebrated Halloween over the weekend? Where I stay, Halloween is not a hugely celebrated event however, there were some parties here and there…. after all, people do look for excuses to find the opportunity to drink and catch up with friends, right?

Did Lan Ning successfully got Yan Ru Yu aka Teacher Xing Xin to submit his manuscript? She actually went over to his place as requested by him. Cheeky Yan Ru Yu! Did he misses her that much to try this way to see her? Hahahahaha

Enjoy the read today. Sorry, it ended with a little cliff-hanging. I promise that they will be back tomorrow with the next chapter……

Have a great start of the week!

Chapter 14.1: Encounter

The next two hours, Yan Ru Yu under the surveillance of Lan Ning, quietly write. When he finished the end of the chapter, he looked at the lower right corner of the computer at the time.

6:28 and 34 seconds in the evening

Well, it is time to stop for dinner now.

He turned and looked at Lan Ning whom is sitting in living room playing with her phone and asked aloud: “Have you thought of what to have for dinner?”

Lan Ning heard his voice and glanced on the watch on her left wrist. “It is only 6 o’clock. And you already would like to have dinner? How about the delivery of your first manuscript?”

She quit the game and smiled at Yan Yu Ru: “Teacher, how many words did your write?”

Before he could answer, she said again: “If you say a few hundred words, then you return to me the money for the cake this afternoon.”

Yan Ru Yu thought for a while and said with no care: “You can deduct from my royalties.”

Lan Ning: “……………..”

Manuscript is still not submitted, what royalties!

She watched as he switched off the computer and come over to the living room: “Where is the steak you promised me?”

Who promised you the steak?

Lan Ning controlled her temper and stood up from the couch: “There is no steak in your fridge.”

“You can go downstairs to buy them.”

Lan Ning: “………………..”

Then you give me the money ah!

Lan Ning wanted to walk away but taking into account that her manuscript is still not received, so she cannot turn against him now. “I have looked into your fridge. There are a lot of vegetables. We just fried two of those for dinner.”

Yan Ru Yu looked at her silently for a while before saying with a heavy authentic tone: “Do you know the consequences of not giving Taurus food? The seriousness of the consequences?”

Lan Ning: “………….”

She don’t know and she do not want to know.

“In your words, if you don’t get what you want to eat, there is no difference with salted fish? If I cannot eat my steak today, I will be listless and go into depression. Then I have to go through a very long period of recovery. Then to come back to writing. I think, you come to ask for the manuscript after National Day.”

Lan Ning: “………………..”

Up till now, she had never met such a brazen person.

She took a deep breath and smiled at Yan Ru Yu: “You want steak, right?”

Yan Ru Yu picked up his coat and followed her from behind: “I will go with you. I doubt you know how to pick a steak.”

Lan Ning took a deep breath and kept smiling: “Even if I do not know how to pick steak, I can still recognize the Arabic numerals. In short, pick the most expensive one.”

After all, it is not her paying.

They went to the supermarket at last not far from Yan Ru Yu’s house that sells everything. Because they already know what they want, they did not blindly wander around and went straight to the section selling the steak.

“This is the kind of cattle, Kobe beef. They listen to music in the day while doing massage and sleep on soft bed. Their meat is very fresh and tender.”

Lan Ning glanced at the beef that Yan Ru Yu choose. It is really is the most expensive one.

Yan Ru Yu holding the steak in his hand, and would like to introduce this high-quality beef to Lan Ning. He is surprised to see a man coming and stopping in front of them.

He glanced at the man slightly and asked Lan Ning: “Do you know this man?”

Lan Ning was a little baffled and turned to see the person behind her. She felt a little surprise.
