Chapter 19.2

After being silent for a while, she still didn’t know what to say. She could not comment on the past he described. And he would care even less for her consolation, so… she just shared her own experience.

“Don’t talk as if men don’t do the same thing.” Lan Ning too put down her chopsticks and looked at Yan Ru Yu, “You probably still remember my ex-boyfriend He was a grade above me. When I was a 3rd year student in university, he did internship abroad and got a girlfriend there just after he arrived.  He kept it from me for one and a half years. I did not even suspect it. his girlfriend abroad too did not sense my presence. That one and a half years, we would still call and video chat. He even comes back to see me on holidays. There was no gap in his deception at all. How do you feel about this?”

Yan Ru Yu looked at her for a while, and his eyes gradually seemed to look down on her: “Are you sure there was no gap in his deception? Is it that he made no mistake, or that you were too dumb to suspect?”

Lan Ning: “… …”

Why is it that when it comes to her matters, it becomes her fault for being too dumb!

“There is no way a woman would feel nothing when a man cheats on her.”

Lan Ning pursed her lips and said: “I couldn’t call him anymore when I was in my second semester of 4th year. The phone would only connect when he calls me. I asked him about this, he said it’s because he changed his cell phone subscription, so it only works when he calls.”

Yan Ru Yu lowered his eyes and laughed: “And you believed that? I finally understand why there are so many girls being lied to.”

Lan Ning was enraged by the slight ridicule in his eyes: “It’s clear that you have never been in a relationship! When someone is in a relationship, even if you know clearly that the other person is lying to you, you would subconsciously choose to believe him.”

“Sorry, I still can’t understand the type of relationship you guys have.” He said and then examined Lan Ning a few times, “I really want write about you in a novel.”

“Huh?” Lan Ning stared blankly, unexpectedly she was slightly moved, “What kind of character?”

“With your IQ, else than the deceased victim, what other role would you think fit you?”

Lan Ning: “… …”

“If you dare make me the deceased victim, I would make you the deceased victim!” Lan Ning said exasperatedly.

Yan Ru Yu only laughed, picked up his chopsticks, and continued to eat.

Because the food bought was placed in disposable boxes, there was only 2 bowls to wash after the meal. Lan Ning volunteered to perform this duty, and rushed Yan Ru Yu to write his draft.

Lan Ning stayed in his house till 8.30pm before leaving.

On Friday, the editor-in-chief finally finished examining her piled up manuscripts.

After finding out that Bi Kong Ru Xi’s <> passed the review process, Lan Ning delivered the good news to him immediately: “Are you there! Just now the editor-in-chief told me that <> passed her review.”

Bi Kong Ru Xi: really!!!

Bi Kong Ru Xi: thanks bian bian!! qaq

Cauliflower: Congratz congratz, after submitting the manuscript, the editor-in-chief has to look at it. Sometimes there is a need for revision, that shouldn’t be a problem right?

Bi Kong Ru Xi: No problem! Lately I have been writing, now there is more than sixty thousand words! [shy]

Would you look over here, other people would write the manuscript so energetically, compared to teacher Xing Xin, the difference is simply like heaven and earth**.

Lan Ning sighed in her heart, then started to discuss the author’s renumeration and manuscript submission time with Bi Kong Ru Xi. The pay for new authors are much lower, and has a huge difference if compared to an author at Xing Xin’s level, but Bi Kong Ru Xi did not haggle over the price with her, and just agreed.

Cauliflower: Then I will send the electronic copy of the contract to you, read through it, and if there is no problem, sign and send it back to me ^_^

Bi Kong Ru Xi: Okay! Thanks again bian bian! I am so happy! = 333 =

Cauliflower: Looking forward to your future even better work, I am watching you kindly ~ : )

Bi Kong Ru Xi: I will try hard, I will not fail to live up to bian bian’s expectation. (/w)

Lan Ning closed the chat box with Bi Kong Ru Xi, and decide to provoke teacher Xing Xin.

Cauliflower: teacher Xing Xin, the new author I spoke about last time, someone’s virgin long manuscript has passed review!

Yan Ru Yu only replied this message in the afternoon.

Xing Xin: Are you talking about that uncouth kid who is a source of entertainment?

Cauliflower: … … his pen name is Bi Kong Ru Xi. He’s only in 3rd year of university this year. Don’t you feel like the younger generation will surpass us in time?

Xing Xin: I wrote <> when I was 17.

Cauliflower: That’s true, after all other people grew up reading your works.

Xing Xin: … …

Xing Xin: Did you forget that I still have half a manuscript I haven’t submitted.

Cauliflower: o (n_n) o ~

She just sent this emoticon when Bi Kong Ru Xi messaged her.

Bi Kong Ru Xi: bian bian bian bian, there’s no problem with the contract. I have already printed and signed it ^_^

Cauliflower: okay, send it to the address I gave you this morning~

Bi Kong Ru Xi: bian bian ~ (/w)

Cauliflower: ?

Bi Kong Ru Xi: Do you have time tonight? I will treat you dinner, and pass the contract to you (/w)

Lan Ning stared blankly for a while, and decided to reject him: “There’s no need. It’s very inconvenient that way [shy]”

Bi Kong Ru Xi: it’s okay, just treat it as if you’re helping me celebrate! I will order the dishes in advance at Wang Shu Jia. Didn’t you guys regret not getting to eat the signature dish last time?

Lan Ning considered it for a while, and can’t resist the temptation of good food.

Cauliflower: Okay then, I will go after work.

Bi Kong Ru Xi: That’s great! Bian bian, you have my number right? Call me when you depart, I will wait at the university entrance for you ^_^

*bian means editor, bian bian is probably Bi Kong Ru Xi informal way of calling Lan Ning his editor

**literal translation: difference like cloud and mud

Bi Kong Ru Xi means A Cloudless Blue Sky



I love travelling and exploring the world, see things from the lense of my camera.... this is my space in sharing the many exciting places that I have visited as well as some of the wonderful gastronomy experience. I also loved baking while exploring new recipes. From time to time, I will also be sharing unique dishes that I cook for my family as well as sharing some of my baking experience / recipes.
