Chapter 30.2: 

“The teacher is so young, of course, brother ah!” Qu Tong dry laugh twice, went to pick up the cauliflower.

“He He.” Lan Ning re-washed the cauliflower that had fallen onto the ground and place it onto the plate.

The dishes are almost ready. Lan Ning began to stir the pot with the ingredients. The aromatic soup based are channeling up from the pot. Even the Qu Tong whom have slept the afternoon way, felt that her stomach is ready for these.

Lan Ning and Yan Ru Yu have eaten Chinese food and Western food together before. But sitting at the same table eating hot pot…. this seems to be the first time.

The first batch in the pot vegetables is already cooked. Using the chopsticks to pick them up, Lan Ning placed them onto Qu Tong’s bowl. Qu tong thanked her happily.

Yan Ru Yu sitting on the side, quietly watching her.

Lan Ning felt his line of sight and noticed his mouth silently pumping. Using the chopsticks, she picked up another piece and placed them into his bowl : “teacher, you also eat.”

“Ah.” Yan Ru Yu picked up the vegetables and dripped into the red gourmet dressing bowl wrapping the sauce around it.

“Teacher, you eat so spicy, really ok ah?” Lan Ning looked at the colour of his bowl is feeling very spicy. And now eating so spicy, the belly would not be too spicy and then he will drag the manuscripts in the future?

“I have always enjoyed eating spicy from young.” He said. Pointing to Lan Ning’s bowl: “Who eats hot pot with sesame oil?”

Lan Ning skimmed her mouth and then picked up the vegetables using her chopstick: “Sesame oil sauce is really nice to eat ah.”

“That ‘s not a purely hot pot, it’ s a pagan in the pot.

Lanning: “…….”

Is Taurus really normally do not talk over a meal?

She picked up a piece of ribs and put it into Yan Ru Yu’s bowl: “Teacher, you eat more.”

She do not believe that food will block his mouth.

Yan Ru Yu looked own at the ribs that she placed into his bowl and then quietly eat it up.

The three of them ate around the table for more than an hour before the whole table of dishes were finished. Qu Tong sat back onto the chair and declared: “No, I am really wasted. Tomorrow I do not want to eat the whole day.”

Lan Ning use the spoon and scooped around the soup. She found some shrimp dumplings and picked them up before placing them into Yan Ru Yu’s bowl. “That’s great. And tomorrow I do not have to cook.”

Qu Tong looked weakly at the ceiling while Yan Ru Yu quietly eat the shrimp dumplings and then wiping his face with a napkin. “Do you need me to help you?”

“Of course.” Lan Ning stood up from the chair and pointed to the dishes that were piled together. “These empty bowls are over to you now.”

She was ready to go to the end of the table to clear the pot. But then, Yan Ru Yu was a step ahead of her and picked up the hot pot. “I will do this. You go and put away those clean empty bowls.”

“Oh, okay….” Lan Ning picked up the stack of plates. She turned to say : “Teacher, you be careful ah.”

“Do not compare me with you….”

Lan Ning: “……………..”

Still very stuffed Qu Tong looked up and looked at them and then staring at the ceiling.

In the kitchen….. Lan Ning and Yan Ru Yu stood next to each other washing the dishes with the washing area filled with white bubbles. Lan Ning pushed her hair and without looking up, asked Yan Ru Yu: “Teacher, which building do you stay in ah?”

Yan Ru Yu replied without even looking up : “Why are you asking this for?”

“Nothing much. Just wanting to visit when I have time.”

“I think you just want to come over and chase for manuscript.”

“Oh… hahaha… how is that possible? Didn’t you just submitted your manuscript?”

“I am now already preparing a new book.”

Lan Ning was stunned for a moment, totally surprised. She stopped washing the dishes : “So fast preparing a new book?” That well-known lazy teacher when had become so diligent?

  2. Meanwhile, in the other room, Qu Tong is studiously not hearing what they’re talking about; not seeing them work together in the kitchen; not considering whether Yan Ru Yu will jump her friend in her own home… She’s, uh, digesting. It’s really occupying her whole being – body, mind, and soul…
