And so, Lan Ning and Ye Cheng completed their dinner… what’s next?

Enjoy the read…….

This chapter is brought to you all by Arra. Thank you Arra for taking time out to translate despite your busy schedule.

Using this opportunity, mhryu would also like to hear from all the readers out there…. I find that the readership for The love affair beside the window (窗口边的情事) is pretty low in comparison with the other 2 on-going translation project. 

I have just started a new job this month and would be travelling for the next several weeks for training. Hence, am thinking of dropping the The love affair beside the window (窗口边的情事) and pick up back Finding Glowing Beauty in Books (书中自有颜如玉) working together with Arra to complete the translation whenever time permits for us. Then, maybe will go back to The love affair beside the window (窗口边的情事)

In the meantime, Xiao Bei and Yi Fan in Boss’s Blind Date Notes (Boss相亲笔记) would continue by tinkerbellsan. 

So don’t forget to drop your thoughts on the above proposed ya. Thank you for your time. And have a great weekend ahead.

Chapter 20.2

“Thank you thank you.” Lan Ning thanked him. And after thinking for some time, took her phone out and took a picture of the dishes on the table.

Ye Cheng saw from across the table and was amused: “So you actually also have this kind of habit?”

Lan Ning replied: “What? Don’t tell me you think only you youngsters can do it?”

Ye Cheng laughed twice and replied: “No, you are very young too.”

Lan Ning stared at him once and put away her phone, “Forget it, I am already 25 years old, I feel like an aunt in front of you.” Especially since just now she just saw such a delicate young lady, so she felt even more like an aunt.

“25 is still very young okay, you will make 25 year old young ladies cry from saying that.”

“You probably mean 25 year-old old ladies.” Lan Ning laughed, picked up her chopsticks and started eating, “Oh! It is this flavor! It’s still that familiar recipe!”

Ye Cheng laughed and scooped out 2 more scoops of steamed eggs for her: “It’s hard for you to come by, so eat more.”

Lan Ning is very satisfied with this meal. She is thinking of finding the time to invite Dai Qing and Qu Tong along to come and eat here another day.

Since Ye Cheng has already paid in advance, the two of them left after they finished eating. Lan Ning feels somewhat embarrassed: “I’ve eaten twice with you, and you’ve paid twice. I’ll treat you next time.”

Ye Cheng paused after listening, then happily replied: “ Sounds good.”

“He he, “ Lan Ning laughed, and started pondering on what would be good to treat him on: “Do you like to eat roasted meat? Or what about self-serve seafood?”

Ye Cheng replied: “I will like any food if I eat together with bian bian (editor)”

“Eh? Do you also lie like this to the girls in school?”

“I don’t lie to girls in school.”

Lan Ning blinked and asked him: “Then how about outside the school?”

Ye Cheng laughed, looked at her and said: “Do you want to have a stroll in the campus?”

The suggestion moved Lan Ning a little. And after thinking, she replied, “okay, let’s go.”

When she came last time, she went straight to the auditorium and did not get a good look at the school. She actually still misses the time when they lived in the dorms, and the her major’s faculty buildings.

With Ye Cheng along, it is not convenient for her to visit the girls’ dormitory, so she walked towards the place where she used to go for classes. There were a lot of students on the way there who recognized Ye Cheng, and looked at both of them. Lan Ning felt awkward, however in contrast, Ye Cheng expression showed that he did not mind at all.

Lan Ning can’t stop herself asking: “Aren’t you afraid of not being able to find a girlfriend?”

Ye Cheng asked back: “For what reason?”

Lan Ning : “ … …”

That’s right, how can such a handsome person have trouble getting a girlfriend, he he.

The two of them have not reached the school building yet, when they saw a lot of people crowding in front. Like someone is there taking pictures. Both of them stopped walking, and looked at the crowd with curiosity.

Seeming to be able to see the person taking the picture clearly, Ye Cheng was suddenly excited and said: “It is Wu Yang!”

“Wha?” Lan Ning can’t really keep up with his reasoning.

Ye Cheng tilted his head to look at her, his expression showing some excitement: “it is a cosplay of Wu Yang, moreover that cosplayer seems to be ?mysterious  (幻岛的 – not sure what this means), very famous.”

The buildings in Imperial Capital University are very artistic, and there are lots of flowers and plants in the campus, so people often come to take pictures, production teams even come to make movies.

Lan Ning carefully looked back at the crowd, so it is a famed cosplayer, no wonder the equipments look so professional.

“Wait here, I will go and take a few pictures.”

Ye Cheng took his phone and prepared to walk towards the crowd, Lan Ning cannot help laughing: “So you actually like these kind of stuff too, you will definitely be able to connect with Qu Tong.”

Ye Cheng replied: “I just really like Wu Yang, don’t you feel like that cosplayer is quite close to the original?”

“Mm……. he does quite have the feeling.”

Wu Yang is the most classic character that Xing Xin wrote, and is also a quite complex character. He was smarter than others even as a kid, and his performance after joining the police displayed his extraordinary talent. He solved several big cases in a row, and became a legend in the police. He showed off his ability in his youth, feeling like he can prevail over anything, but his excessive self-confidence caused his comrades to be murdered in cold blood.

  3. i like those stories, but i think the romance kind of slow. but it’s worth especially “the affair beside the window”, it’s really rare for a novel told from POV of male lead instead. and for finding glowing beauty in books my complaint for the author is i want the male lead appearance become frequent. hehehe
