Chapter 40.1: 

When the words of Yan Ru Yu were spoken, the atmosphere suddenly froze. Lan Ning’s look was no longer as natural as how it was before.

This thought that everyone did not mentioned in a tacit understanding, but now she is somewhat overwhelmed by her actions by Yan Ru Yu.

She blinked for a moment before she quickly picked up her bag from the sofa. She just got up when her wrist was caught by Yan Ru Yu. ‘Want to escape again? What are you afraid of?’

‘I…’ The question by Yan Ru Yu caught her by surprise, unable to answer. Her action was paused before she jerked back her wrist. ‘I just suddenly remembered that I had a courier parcel from the security guard downstairs. I am going to pick up the delivery!’

She walked towards the door just like what she did last time, opened the door and leave.

Yan Ru Yu put the place containing the cake back onto the table, turned back and lay down on the couch again.

Lan Ning returned home and threw the bag aside. She also fell onto the bed.

What would she be afraid of? Is she afraid of anything?

Lan Ning’s brows gradually tightened. She just didn’t know how to face it! After all, does Teacher Xing Xin really like her? This assumption itself is scary…. And why would he like her?

Does she…. Like him or not?

Throughout the night, Lan Ning tossed in the torture of liking or not. It didn’t take long before she closed her eyes and then having to get up to head into work.

On the back cover of this issue of ‘Mistry’ magazine is the full-page advertisement for the ‘Death Message’ book that is to be published. The online pre-sale link was also made for the first time. The 10,000 copies of stamped were sold out in the first few hours of pre-sale. The website also made a regular version of the pre-sale link.

Although this relationship has little to do with Lan Ning, she is still very happy as the editor of this book. It is reasonable to say that she should have actively report the result to Yan Ru Yu and congratulated him but still she had not contacted him,

Not to mention the contact, the last two days, she even sees his QQ, she will be nervous. She is always worrying about, what if he suddenly looked for her, what is she going to do?

Lan Ning thinks that this is a little bit ridiculous. After all, she is still also an adult. She even gets absent-minded because of this at work. Obviously, when she was in college, she had not studied because she was in love.

QQ sounded and Lan Ning looked at it with a tight expression. She took a glance at the blinking icon and then breathed a sigh of relief.

Bìkōng rú xǐ: Editor, editor! I got my payment! So Happy!

Bìkōng rú xǐ: Do you have time tomorrow? I want to invite you for a meal (shy)

Cauliflower: Congratulations! There is no need to buy me meal. Keep the money to buy what you like

Bìkōng rú xǐ: I like to buy you meal (*/w*) This is my first publishing fees in my life. I want to thank you editor as my appreciation (shy)

Cauliflower: 23333. You are too kind

T/N : 23333 means laughing

Bìkōng rú xǐ: So, editor, are you free?

Cauliflower: Okay…. But I might be late after work

Bìkōng rú xǐ: It doesn’t matter! That’s great! ~(≧▽≦)/~ What do you want to eat?

Cauliflower: Its up to you to decide.

Bìkōng rú xǐ: Okay! I will contact editor again (*/w*)

Lan Ning smiled and send an ok sign before closing the dialog.

After work the next day, Lan Ning went to the subway station and then looked at the message sent by Ye Cheng.

‘Lant? Western Restaurant?’ Lan Nign frowned slightly. She thought that students like Ye Cheng, generally will eat barbecue restaurants or buffet. She did not expect that he would decide on a Western restaurant. One that is on a higher end.

Although his contribution fees include extra rewards, it is still not enough to consume in such a Western Restaurant?

She thought for a moment and replied to Ye Cheng with a message: ‘Do you have to eat in a Western Restaurant? There seems to be a very expensive meal’

Ye Cheng: You don’t have to worry about it, Editor. I don’t usually spend much money. Most of my living expenses are saved ~(≧▽≦)/~ and I had earned money before in other job

Lan Ning felt that a good student like Ye Cheng is very rare now.

Lan Ning: If you say so, but you having a meal in the western restaurant will be really expensive (:3”∠)

Ye Cheng: 23333 does not matter. I just have to publish more manuscript for the fees! Later I will also make more money. Then I would bring Editor for better meals! (≧▽≦)/~

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

Has she been seduced by a little boy? Mother hen is feeling a bit shy….

She put away the phone and took the subway to the direction of the restaurant.

  1. I get this feeling that Ye Cheng was asking her out at Yan Ru Xu’s instructions. I am looking forward to next post whether Ye Cheng really picked up the tab or YRX makes an appearance? 😀

  2. Ohhh, she’s escaping to not have to think about the frightening possibility of liking and being liked by Yan Ru Yu. This poor fanboy author. He even mostly knows she’s out of his league (and age bracket), yet he still tries so hard to catch her attention. Such a puppy.
