Chapter 32.3: 

Yan Yu Ru looked at her sluggish and horrified expression and then whispered a laugh: “I’m kidding.’

‘No…. what you are saying is true….’

Yan Ru Yu blinked: ‘I started writing because I was influenced by my father since from my childhood. As you already know, my family is a scholar.’

Lan Ning: ‘…………’

Somewhat stiffly, she picked up the pen and write the answer the question: ‘The blessed teacher, born into a scholarly family. He grew up with a strong interest in literature since he was a child.’

Yan Ru Yu looked at her writing, picked up some food and put into the bowl. ‘The next question?’

‘Oh, the next question…..’ Lan Ning for a while had not returned from the earlier shocked. She swept the list of questions and read out: ‘What is the size of teacher……’

Wait! What kinda of question is that!

Yan Ru Yu really stopped his chopsticks movement and looked at her with interest: ‘What is my size?’

Lan Ning: ‘……………..’

‘Ah, probably your shoe. Shoe size…..’ Lan Ning with her blushed face, did not even dare to lift her head.

‘Size 44.’

‘Ah….’ Lan Ning cautiously read the next question, ‘When Teacher do not have inspiration, what do you usually like to do?’

‘Dragging the draft’

Lan Ning: ‘……………’

After the startling little interview, Lan Ning vowed to never do such thing again. After dinner, she helped Yan Ru Yu washed the dishes and wiped them. ‘Teacher, is it possible to take a photo of the area you work? Many readers want to see what kind of work environment the masters usually worked under to create the masterpiece.’

‘Ok. I usually write in the study.’ Lan Ning followed Yan Ru Yu to the study door and switched on the lights. ‘But I had just moved here. So the books are pretty limited.’

Lan Ning was dumbfounded at the sight in front of her. The entire place is filled with books. Only a small area in the middle of the desk has a spot for the computer. The wall in front of the desk are filled with notes, should be some tips. There is a big bookcase on the left side that is also packed with books.

This is called small? Sitting in this room, one will be drowned by the amount of books.

‘I am preparing a new novel. Usually it is not so chaotic.’ Said Yan Ru Yu while staring at his desk. He presumed that his desk is very messy so slightly frowned.

Lan Ning took out her phone and took a few photos of the desk. ‘It does not matter. This is the most realistic state.’ She put the phone back into her pocket and turn to bowed slightly: ‘today I had disturbed Teacher. I am going back first.’


Lan Ning took a few steps and then turned back to warn him: ‘Do not touch too much bìkōng rú xǐ.’

Yan Ru Yu picked his brow: ‘But he seems to like me a lot.’

That is because he is blind!

Lan Ning angrily left the home of Yan Ru Yu.

Before she went to bed that night, her cell phone received an Alipay transfer. She opened to read. It turns out to be the long time missing Yu Mu Yuan.

In the beginning of their break up, she had cut off all contact with Mu Yu Yuan but forgot to remove him from Alipay. Did not expect that this person actually found a loophole.

He sent a thousand RMB and added a sentence: ‘I have decided to go back to work with the foreign company. Let’s just end it here.’

Lan Ning: ‘…………’

What does this mean? Did they not break up three years ago? And sending her a thousand RMB, is this breaking up fee?

Lan Ning think that this guy is not sane.

She transferred the one thousand RMB back to Yu Yuan and left him a remark: ‘Mr Yu, we have already ended the relationship three years ago. I do not want to have any relationship with you anymore.’

She transferred it back to Yu Mu Yuan when he transferred it back to her again. She transferred it to him again and then he transferred it back!….. Finally in a fit of anger, Lan Ning transferred a thousand and fifty RMB: ‘I give you fifty extra, get lost!’

Mu Yuan is finally quiet this time. Lan Ning quickly removed him.

Sitting quietly on the bed for a while, she sent a WeChat message to Yan Ru Yu: ‘Teacher, Yu Mu Yuan said he is going back to work for the foreign company. You can move back to your original accommodation. You do not have to worry about meeting him.’

Yan Ru Yu replied: ‘You still have contact with him?’

Lan Ning: ‘I forgot to remove him from Alipay. So he transferred a thousand RMB and told me that he is leaving.’

Lan Ning: ‘So can you reason what is the meaning of his action? Is my previous feelings worth only a thousand RMB?’

Yan Ru Yu: ‘Can I change my manuscript again?’

Lan Ning: ‘…………’
