Chapter 20.1: 

Lan Ning went to Imperial Capital University straight after work, initially she wanted to bring Dai Qing along, however after considering that it is not good to bring another person, she could only drop her intentions.

She had only walked a little from the subway exit when she spotted Ye Cheng standing at the university entrance from afar. He is not as tall as Yan Ru Yu, but is still very eye-catching amongst the students. The last time she saw him, he was wearing more ostentatious clothes due to the band performance. In contrast this time, he looks a lot more casual.

Light brown hoodie jacket, jeans, ankle boots. Sunlight from the nearly setting sun fell on his soft black hair, gently blown by the wind.

Lan Ning can’t help but sigh, as expected, such a beautiful youngster, she reminisce a little of her own youth.

But she did not walk there immediately, instead, she slowed down her footsteps.

A girl with long hair stood next to Ye Cheng, and the two of them were talking. The girl’s expression was very bashful. That is the expression that comes out when you face someone you like.

Lan Ning believes herself to be a very tactful person. The other person could be in the middle of a confession, oh, or could it be that she is already Ye Cheng’s girlfriend? After all, the girl looks very cute, and looks well matched standing together with him.

While on this side she was still moving in snail pace to approach the university gate. On the other side, Ye Cheng turned his head slightly and spotted her. He stared blankly, then laughed while shouting out to call her: “Lan Ning.”

Lan Ning too stared blankly. Although it was her who told him not to call her bian bian when they are outside, but to suddenly be called by her name by the other person, she is still somewhat unused to it.

But since she was already discovered, there is no need for her to move slowly anymore. She faced Ye Cheng and smiled, walking a few steps towards him. The girl next to Ye Cheng did not stop looking at her. Lan Ning is a little ill at ease and asked Ye Cheng: “Is this your girlfriend? She looks very cute.”

Ye Cheng said: “Nah, she is my classmate. We are discussing class meeting matters.”

Lan Ning let out an eh? Ye Cheng turned back his head and looked at the girl: “We are going out to eat now. We’ll chat again later.”

Lan Ning: “… …”

Wait, it’s not that good for you say it this way…

She followed at Ye Cheng’s side to walk towards the small stir-fry restaurant, Wang Shu Jia. It is reasonable to say that, if even she can tell that the girl is interested in Ye Cheng, it is not possible for Ye Cheng not to sense it. So did he say those words just now to subtly refuse the girl?

Even though Lan Ning thought a lot in her mind, but since these are all Ye Cheng’s personal matters, it is inconvenient for her to say anything. So without a better option, she chatted about other things: “you are still the class leader?”

Ye Cheng smiled and said: “Yes, originally I did not want to be one anymore, but you are given course credits for this, it can’t be helped.”

Lan Ning nodded her head. At that time, she too did it for course credits.

The two chatted on the way to the small restaurant Wang Shu Jia. It is considered quite late to eat in the university at this time, there are only a few tables occupied with students in Wang Shu Jia.

Lan Ning and Ye Cheng randomly picked a place to sit. There is also no one who asked them what they want to order, but a moment later, dishes of food was carried one after another. A student near them who saw them getting steamed eggs and boiled beef blurted out discontentedly: “Why do they still get steamed eggs and boiled beef when they arrive later than us?”

The waitress in the restaurant is the wife of Uncle Wang. She gave the student a glance, and calmly served the dishes at Ye Cheng’s table: “This student ordered in advance in the afternoon. He even paid for them in advance. Next time you should also order in advance.”

That student pursed his lips, turned his body and continued eating.

Wang Shu Jia’s steamed eggs sells really fast. Usually it will be gone if you were just a little late. The steamed eggs in the restaurant were made specially. There is a huge difference between the goods here and ordinary steamed eggs. It also has very good flavor. Lan Ning has tried fumbling with this recipe twice previously, but it all ended in failure.

Now she was fortunate enough to be able to eat the dish, Lan Ning gave a heartfelt sigh: “I don’t know how Wang Shu Jia’s steamed egg dish is actually made. There is a silky feeling, and it is especially fragrant.”

Ye Cheng nodded his head: “Yes, I too really like to eat their steamed eggs. I’ve previously secretly asked Uncle Shu on how to prepare the steamed eggs, but he did not tell me. ╭(╯^╰)╮”

Looking at his expression, Lan Ning can’t help but laugh and said: “It is weirder for him to tell you. It’s a trade secret.”

Ye Cheng laughed and used the ladle to scoop 2 scoops of steamed eggs into her bowl: “Take advantage and eat it while it’s hot.”
