Anyone smelling the “sourness of jealousy” yet?

Chapter 21.1: 

Lan Ning logged out of her QQ and immediately picked up the phone to call Yan Ru Yu.  The phone rang three times before Yan Yu Ru picked it up. “What is it? I want to pack my luggage.”

Lan Ning: ……….

Goodness! You are for real!

A little rash, she said: “I can’t really figure out why an Author is so keen to travel.”

Yan Ru Yu was silence for a while and then hang up the phone.

Lan Ning: …………….

She quickly dial again. Luckily the other side picks up the phone. This time, without having to wait for Yan Ru Yu to open his mouth, she quickly said: “I say again, why do you obviously is not heading into a good direction, but also like to travel?”

“The sense of direction is not limited to the place has never been to. I often go to the place is not find the direction.” Yan Yu Ru finished the sentence coldly and then hung up the phone.

Lan Ning: ………………

Teacher you will not be too proud of the point!

But with the last lesson, Lan Ning was afraid of Yan Ru Yu silently disappeared in the vast world. She quickly called the editor and reported the situation.

After listening to the editor who only bite the teeth and throw over a sentence: “You follow him tomorrow. The latest by Tuesday, I want to see you bringing the manuscript back!”

Lan Ning: …………………………

Are you indirectly saying that if there is no manuscript, she does not have to come back?

Lan Ning head to the subway, to pass the contract for Bikong to Apple asking her to take over and meet him by Monday.

Apple already know the ins and out. She took the contract with a look of sympathy while patting Lan Ning’s shoulder.

It was already almost ten o’clock by the time Lan Ning got home. Qu Tong have not gone to bed. Hearing the sound of the door, she excitedly ran out: “Sister Lan Ning, tomorrow we go to the Manga Show together!”

Lan Ning dragging her tired body and mind into her room: “I am heading into the deep mountain forest for practice tomorrow.”

Qu Tong had a question mark on her face: ‘Heading into the deep mountain forest for practice?’

She looked at Lan Ning whom does seems to be really tired. Especially when she even turned blind eye to her pirate dressing today. Qu Tong emotionally hold Lan Ning’s hand: “Although after the founding of the country is still not entirely fine, but I still wish you success!”

“Thank you….”

“When are you coming back?”

“Maybe Tuesday…. maybe…. will no longer come back.”

Qu Tong: “……………….”

Is it because…… she failed the trial?

Lan Ning could not care with the curiosity of Qu Tong and head straight back into her room. She loosened her pony tail (it is her hair that is tied in a pony tail) and then hit onto her bed.

After resting for a while, she suddenly bounced up. She head to the closet to find a small travel bag and began to pack her clothes.

If this is not successful, will become benevolent. She do not believe that she could not successfully dragged him back with manuscript ready.

Yan Ru Yu said that he is heading into the deep mountain forest to find inspiration. He is ready to set out. Before the morning lights is up, carrying a travel bag, he orderly set out.

Who would have expected that when opening the door, stood Lan Ning whom is also carrying the same travel bag.

Lan Ning smiled at him and said: “Teacher, I have waited for you for a long time.”

Yan Ru Yu : ………….

He looked at the watch on the wrist. It is only six o’clock now. So she have been waiting at his door as early as five o’clock?

“I did not expect that you have such a hot love for me.” Yan Ru Yu discredited her.

Lan Ning did not even finch: “I just do not want your half completed manuscript becomes your un-completed work.”

“Following me alone into the deep mountain forest, just 1 male and 1 female, are you not afraid that something will happen?”

“Do you not say that I have played a few rogues without any problem?”

Yan Ru Yu smiled and did not speak. He locked the door and then walked out.

Lan Ning keep up with him all the way, fearing that he would get rid of her along the way. They went into the garage. Lan Ning recognised Yan Ru Yu eye-catching silver Jaguar.

“Got into the car.” He put the luggage into the back seat, open the door and got into the driver seat.

Lan Ning followed him into the car, seating into the passenger seat next to the driver. She put on the seat belt while still holding her bag in her hand. Yan Ru Yu looked at her sitting on his side. He kept quiet and started the car.

  1. Thank you for the chapter.
    The deep mountain woods sounds a lot like… a place we’ll never read about, because they both lack any real sense of direction. I wonder where they’ll get lost, and how long it’s going to take to find home again.

    Liked by 3 people

    1. Can’t wait to read about their adventure 🤣 I wonder when would they start realizing how much they care for each other or how Yan Ru Yu will ‘chase’ Lan Ning 🤣🤣
