Chapter 39.2: 

Lan Ning put on the slippers and followed behind him: ‘Teacher, what is wrong with you? You look like you do not have any spirit.’

Yan Ru Yu said: ‘Try having a fever and still have spirit!’

Lan Ning quickly blinked and walked toward him: ‘You really are down with a fever?’

Yan Ru Yu said, ‘Do you want me to measure and then show you my temperature?’

‘No…’ Lan Ning put the paper bag with the cakes on the table and looked at him. ‘It is not because you used to lie too much? Have you heard of the story of the wolf?’

Yan Ru Yu seems to be very tired and did not talk anymore. He lay down on the couch.

Lan Ning came to him, kneeling beside the sofa: ‘Teacher?’

She called him gently. When the other party ignored her, she only dared to touch his forehead with boldness. ‘It is a little hot. Did you take any medicine?’

‘Uh…’ Yan Ru Yu closed his eyes and murmured.

Lan Ning stood up and went into his room to take out his quilt and cover him. Then, she went into the kitchen to make an ice pack to put on his forehead.

Yan Ru Yu seems more comfortable now.

Lan Ning looked at him for a while, said softly: ‘It seems that you cannot eat these cakes.’

‘Cough’ Yan Ru Yu cough and whispered, ‘You help me put the cake into the fridge. I can eat them tomorrow after I recover.’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

This is the ethics of a professional food lover…

She put the cakes into the fridhe and then looked at Yan Ru Yu that had fallen asleep on the couch. It is pitiful enough to have a fever today, she doesn’t feel like leaving him alone.

She found some ingredients in the kitchen and was planning to eat something for herself. Yan RU Yu has been sleeping on the sofa. Lan Ning changed his ice packs in the middle. Finally, she gradually fell asleep.

Do not know when Yan Ru Yu woke up. He raised his hand and touched the ice bag that is almost becoming water on his forehead. He looked slightly to one side and saw Lan Ning sleeping on the cushion.

He first froze and then slowly softened his eyes. Lan Ning’s breathing was gentle and her long hair was drapped over her shoulders. Yan Ru Yu looked at her for a while, slowly extending his hand to rub her head.

‘Yeah….’ Lan Ning muttered quietly. She wasn’t in deep sleep and she woke up with the slight movement.

Yan Ru Yu seeing her turning and waking up, he took his hand back.

Lan Ning stretched her back and slowly sat up: ‘Ah, teacher, you are awake!’

‘Uh.’ Yan Ru Yu replied and looked back at the ceiling above.

Lan Ning came to take the ice bag from his head and tried to test the temperature of his forehead. She sighed with relief: ‘The temperature has gone down. Do you want to measure the temperature again?’

‘No need.’ Yan Ru Yu replied.

‘Hey…’ Lan Ning stood up from the cushion. Because she sat on the floor for too long, she felt a bit numb. She moved her limbs and looked at the watch on her writst. ‘It is not twelve yet!’

She ran into the kitchen to take out the little fruit cake and put it on the coffee table in the living room. She light up the candle: ‘While there is still a few minutes left, make a wish!’

Yan Ru Yu looked at her and looked at the burning candle on the cake. He sat up on the couch and said: ‘You just bought such a mini cake to celebrate my birthday?’

‘There are several flavoured cakes in the refrigerator. You can keep them and eat it tomorrow!’ Lan Ning rushed to save herself. ‘In short, make a wish!’

The tone of Yan Ru Yu is still somewhat disgusted: ‘With such a small cake, my wish could not be achieved.’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

Wish is something you need to fight for yourself ah, it is not depending on cake!

‘And last time for Chief Editor birthday, you use 17 and why did you give me 28 for my birthday?’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

Because the Chief Editor is a woman, while you are not!

She took a deep breath to relief and remind herself to remain patience with the sick patient. And today is also his birthday, so she should be tolerant. She smiled at Yan Ru Yu with an accommodating smile: ‘Teacher, if you do not blow the candle now, it will soon be twelve o’clock.’

Yan Ru Yu swept away from her with a faint eye, closed his eyes and folded his hands together and whispered: ‘I hope I can get married this year.’

Lan Ning: ‘…’

Teacher, you can still wish to make a single trip this year.

Yan Ru Yu blow out the candles and picked up the cake knife to prepare to cut the cake. Lan Ning grabber the knife and frowned at him: ‘What are you doing?’

‘Of course, to eat the cake. Didn’t you want to let me eat the cake?’

‘No… I just want you to make a wish.’

‘Now that this mission has been completed, we can carry out the second mission.’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

‘I had a prepared some porridge before and kept it hot. You should eat some porridge before eating the cake.’ She went into the kitchen and filled a small bowl of porridge.

Yan Ru Yu looked down at the porridge in the bowl and was still steaming hote. He picked up the spoon and spooned it into his mouth.

Lan Ning cut two small portions of cakes and placed them on the plate before putting the rest back into the fridge. The room was a little quiet. Lan Ning took a small slice of the strawberry from the cake and said: ‘What were you doing on May 1? Why is there no news from you?’

Yan Ru Yu said: ‘Don’t you have any news at all?’

‘Oh, I was just thinking about life….’

Yan Ru Yu looked at her and said: ‘I am giving you time to think about life.’
