Chapter 14.2: Encounter

Who can tell her why she can encounter Yu Mu Yuan in this neighborhood? Does he also live in this neighborhood?

Yan Ru Yu moved his eyes and put the steak into the basket. “Do you need me to move away for a while?”

“No!”

Lan Ning was anxious and before she could say anything, Yu Mu Yuan had sneer and sigh: “How, this is also your boyfriend now? And also visiting the supermarket together. It appears that you are also co-habiting?”

Lan Ning: “…………….”

She had not answered Yu Mu Yuan when he attacked her another time: “I want to understand. That day in the school, the young chap is just for you to get over your boredom. And this man is the real one?”

Cannot tolerate this idiot!

“Lan Ning, but three years have not seen you. You have a lot of ability. You accused me of two-timing you. But now you are also doing the same thing.”

…………

In the beginning, Lan Ning would also like to explain but now completely too lazy to even explain. She pulled at Yan Ru Yu’s coat wanting to get out of there: “The steak is chosen, let’s pay and leave.”

At the moment, Yan Ru Yu does not seem to want to leave. He stood in the place and looked at Yu Mu Yuan. He turned and said to Lan Ning: “This is your ex-boyfriend? Your taste in the past is really bad.”

Lan Ning: “…………..”

Yu Mu Yuan: “…………..”

Many passing people are beginning to intentionally or unintentionally turn to look at them. They stood around with interest to see how the story will develop next.

Lan Ning could not take it anymore and pulled Yan Ru Yu’s clothes hoping to get him away as soon as possible. “This, people will inevitably been blinded before. These are not important. Let’s hurry back to cook the steak.”

Yu Mu Yuan heard this and said another sentence: “Oh, before with me, you were very conservative. Why is it now that you could so openly live with a man?”

Yan Ru Yu said: “I think this should be how the decision is made now.”

Lan Ning: “……………”

I beg you to leave now! Why want to play along with him!

Lan Ning grabbed Yan Ru Yu’s arm and quickly walked towards the direction of the cashier though the crowd of onlookers.

On the way, Yan Ru Yu slowly pulled out his hand from her grabs. Lan Ning noticed that Yu Mu Yuan did not followed them. She took a breath of relieve.

“I did not expect that you would have such a rich love life.” Yan Ru Yu suddenly said.

Lan Ning tugged her mouth. She did not want to mention about Yu Mu Yuan, this cheapo. She casually say: “It was in the past. It happen when I was still in University. I apologies for the incident just now. Don’t keep it at heart.”

“It is alright. I have no interest in him.” He turned and looked at her whom is on his side. “But I am more curious about the new young boy.”

Lan Ning: “…………….”

“There is nothing to say about him. He is just a newcomer to me. And I met him when I went back to the University recently.”

“Oh.”

“Although he is a new comer. But he is lovely and can write well. You are a great writer. Don’t you have a sense of crisis? Sooner or later, you will be replaced by the newcomer.”

“Oh, is that right?”

“Yes, Teacher. You must have a bit of writer sense of responsibility. Do not drag anymore the manuscript.”

“The manuscript is the matter for the author. I am personally carrying out my sense of responsibility. Do you not feel it?”

Lan Ning: “………………”

Damn you this spicy guy! Sooner or later this world will be replaced with the new guy!

After the two of them returned home, Lan Ning took out her phone to learn how to cook the steak. To tell the truth, she usually like to eat Chinese Food. All these western stuff, she is really not very good.

Yan Ru Yu seeing that she is searching the internet for recipe, decisively gave up the idea of getting her to cook the steak. “Okay, you go and sit on the sofa and play your game. I will cook it.”

Lan Ning could not believe that is such a good thing: “Really?”

“Of course it is true. Do you know how much this cost per 100gm? I do not want to spoil two good steak.”

Lan Ning: “…………”

Okay then.

Yan Ru Yu wash his hand and really started preparing to cook the steak. Lan Ning looked at his back while he cook the steak. Very smooth movements that is also elegant. She was in a trance. Feels like watching the idol drama….

Until the fragrance drifted over, she finally could not help but walk over to look. Yan Ru Yu wobble the place and pour the sauce onto the steak. He plated the onions and broccoli that was cooked in advance.

“Dinner is prepared” He pushes a plate in front of Lan Ning. Lan Ning looked at the plate. He did not only cooked the steak, he also added a fried eggs.

She was sigh a few words. He listened and said: “Green broccoli, I have deliberately give you more.”

Lan Ning: “………….”

That is why she said, she did not like to eat broccoli.

“Thank you for your self-righteousness.” Lan Ning smiled and picked up the plate.

Yan Ru Yu responded with a smile. “You are welcome!”

The two of them brought the plate to the dining area and sat down to silently began to eat. Speaking of which, this is not the first time they sit at the same table to eat. But don’t know why, now that it is the western food, Lan Ning inexplicably felt a little embarrassed.

Presumably this comes with the ambiguous Western dining etiquette.

The steak, as Yan Ru Yu said, it is really delicious. She believes that in addition to the superior quality of beef itself, the indelible cooking skills of Ya Ru Yu is also a contributing factor.

After eating a few mouthfuls, Yan Ru Yu suddenly stood up and walked out of the dining area. Then he came back with a bottle of wed wine and a wine opener in his hand.

He put the red wine on the table and walked into the kitchen to take the wine glass.

“Do you want to drink?” He turned around and asked Lan Ning. Lan Ning immediately and firmly shook her head.

Yan Ru Yu gave a little laugh and brought out a wine glass.

And Yan Ru Yu quietly sat and dine. Lan Ning sitting opposite of him, quietly devoured the meal. Yan Ru Yu took a sip of the red wine and looked at her. He saw that she had clean her plate. He kept quiet.

“Thank you for your hospitality. I go back first.” Lan Ning went to the sofa and picked up her own things. As she moved to the door, she turned and said: “Teacher, when I am not here, remember to write your manuscript.”

Yan Ru Yu laugh and raised his glass of wine to toast at her.

Lan Ning angrily turned her head and opened the door to head out. She went downstairs into the cold blowing air. She raised her hand and touched her face. Why is she so nervous? Maybe it is because it has been too long since she got along with a man!
