Chapter 45.1: 

Lan Ning seized the card in his hand and put it into her bag. ‘This is not a love letter.’

Yan Ru Yu said: ‘Oh, what’s that then?’

‘A break-up letters? When did you start for you to break up?’

Lan Ning grunted: ‘He confessed to me on the weekend but I refused him.’

The answer was totally unexpected by Yan Ru Yu. He was silent for a moment before he spoke up: ‘That is a wise choice. Huāshēng mǐ is less worthy of you.’

Oh… but she thinks that Ye Cheng is much more reliable than him.

She did not speak but Yan Ru Yu continued: ‘So, you met on the weekend?’

Lan Ning: ‘….’

She looked up and smiled at him. ‘Yeah. Starlight Park has a music festival.’

This is obviously not good news for Yan Ru Yu. His brow squinted slightly. The courier staff arrived and came over: ‘Is the courier items ready for delivery?’

‘Wait a minute.’ Yan Ru Yu swallowing back. His head down to continue filling up the form.

After writing the last stroke, he handed the sample book over and let the courier staff help him pack it. After the courier staff took the book, he took a habitual look and then he froze in place.

‘Death Message!’ This book is not listed yet. He could only guess that this is the author of the book himself…..

Is this Teacher Xing Xin?

The courier staff looked up in surprise and asked: ‘You are Teacher Xing Xin?’

Yan Ru Yu sounded placid when he replied: ‘Yeah!’

Courier staff became very excited, almost cried: ‘Ah, ah…. Teacher. I am your loyal reader. I like your Enron Detective series. I heard recently that it will be made into a movie ah! Sorry, I am a little excited now! Ah, I didn’t expect that one day I would meet Teacher while doing the delivery job. This career is indeed the right choice!’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

Wait, your professional pursuit should not be like this ah!

‘Ah ah ah Teacher, can you sign for me? I want to treasure it!’ Express the Courier staff said. He looked for a long time but could not find a white paper. And finally only torn an Express delivery receipt: ‘Teacher, please help me sign here!’

Lan Ning: ‘….’

Yan Ru Yu looked at the courier staff and signed the paper that was handed over. He asked him: ‘Can I get a discount on the shipping fee when I sign? The cost of shipping to overseas is still quite expensive.’

Lan Ning: ‘….’

Courier staff nodded: ‘This service is complimentary on me. I will bear it.’

Yan Ru Yu took the express order decisively and signed his name on it: ‘Okay.’

‘Thank you, Teacher!’ the courier staff excitedly flushed: ‘I will pass it to my descendants!’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

She can’t stand it anymore.

The courier staff gave a linguistic assurance that he would surely send the express parcel safely. And he happily drove away in the van.

Lan Ning looked at Yan Ru Yu: ‘Teacher, look after your image in front of the readers! What is this about discount for authograph?’

Yan Ru Yu is very calm and replied: ‘What’s wrong with it? Money is to be built up from one point to another.’

Lan Ning: ‘….’

At this moment, Lan Ning seems to see that his body is glittering with the holy light of Taurus accumulating wealth.

‘Yes, we were talking about the music festival at Starlight Park?’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

After the interesting conversation with the courier staff, should’t you already forget about this? 😊

She had a five-minute discussion on this issue with Yan Ru Yu, he ended up claiming from Lan Ning to have a meal with him.

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

Why should she buy him a meal!

Realizing that she is losing in the debate, her heart reluctantly slap Yan Ru Yu. 😊 He sat across from her and while eating, said: ‘Well, it seems that everyone knows about our date recently.’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

‘That’s not a date at all!’ Lan Ning roared angrily.

Yan Ru Yu nodded indifferently: ‘I don’t think so to. So let’s go on a date this weekend.’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

Losing badly in this debate.

‘I’m going to a classmate’s wedding on weekends.’

‘There are two days on the weekend.’

‘I want to rest on the other day.’

‘Then we can date at home.’

Lan Ning: ‘……’

So, the fundamental issue here is why she must date him!

After the meal, she felt more tired.

Walking out of the shop, Yan Ru Yu looked at the flowers in her hand: ‘Do you know how to keep the flowers fresh?’

Lan Ning’s eyebrows moved. What else is there to do? Don’t all you need is to take a vase and put them into the water?’

Yan Ru Yu said: ‘With your knowledge, I am afraid that even the type of this flowers you do not know.’ He said, while taking the flowers from her hand. ‘I will help you keep the flowers.’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

Without morals, anything is possible!

She laughed weakly twice: ‘If you like it, take it!’

Arriving at her apartment, she waved her hand at Yan Ru Yu and said goodbye. Yan Ru Yu watched as she walked into the building and then hooked his mouth into a smile.

  1. Ah!!!! I am so disappointed with both of them. My disappointment with YRY didn’t insist to goto the wedding with LN as a date killing two birds with a stone so to speak for him being so thick skin. Why not be thick skin all the way, you know?

    Whereas, since LN not really want to attend her so-called friends wedding alone or otherwise. For argument sake take YRY anyway…

    Liked by 2 people

  2. I have bad feeling about poor flowers

    Knowing YRY. He will probably mistreat the flower

    Looking forward to his next cunning steps to winning Lan Ning’s ❤😁
