Chapter 49.2:

Outside the community, Lan Ning and Yan Ru Yu walked side by side on the small road. The city, as what Yan Ru Yu said earlier, is just a small town. The road is not as spacious as the city but is very clean.

Yan Ru Yu looked at Lan Ning sideways and asked her: ‘Do you have anything to say to me?’

Lan Ning smiled softly: ‘Sure enough, Teacher will always be the one to know it.’ She stopped in the same place and turned to looked at the person in front of her. ‘Teacher, maybe you and Dai Qing are doing this for me. I know myself. Because of the failed past relationship, it is not wrong to start new feelings again. But sometimes people are like this…..’

The more you face someone you like, the more you will be afraid.

She took a slow breath and said: ‘I like you. But I cannot help it, liking you does not mean that I am ready to start a new relationship now. Even if you force me like that, I cannot do it. I cannot make the promise to you now.’

After all, liking you does not necessarily trust you. Or trusting myself.

The eyebrows of Yan Ru Yu moved: ‘Do you think that we are forcing you?’

‘Isn’t it? You have already directly come to see my parents.’ Although she did not throw him directly aside, she still feel bad.

Yan Ru Yu was silent for a moment. ‘I understand what you mean. I may have done this without thinking about you.’ He squinted his lips and said to Lan Ning: ‘But I can hear you saying that you like me. I am still very happy.’

Lan Ning coughed a little: ‘Then, I will send you to the hotel first.’

‘No need.’ Yan Ru Yu said. ‘I am here for you only. If I cannot stay with you, it does not make sense to stay here.’

He looked at the watch on his wrist and said to Lan Ning: ‘I will go directly to the station and see if there are any ticket back into A city.’

Lan Ning looked at him like this, her heart was feeling a little uncomfortable. She said those words did not want to chase him away but just want to tell him clearly what she thought.

Yan Ru Yu smacked his lips and smiled lightly: ‘I give you this half month time to sort your thought out. I hope that when you come back, I can hear good news.’

When he finished talking, he raised his hand to stop a taxi. He boarded the taxi and head towards the direction of the station. Lan Ning watched the taxi turn around the corner in front. She watched as it disappeared from her sight and then slowly turned to walk back.

Arriving at the station, Yan Ru Yu went to ticket counter to inquire. Today, there are still ticket back to the A city, but it is only available late in the evening. Yan Ru Yu think about it and then decided to buy the ticket.

Because there is a still long time to wait for the train to depart. Yan Ru Yu found a coffee shop nearby and then sat down for a cup of coffee. He sat by the window and the luggage was placed next to him. He took out his mobile phone and boarded QQ to send a message to Shíjiǔ Zāi: ‘The Goddess Raiders Handbook’ that you have me really is suppose to work? 😊’

Shíjiǔ Zāi: What happened? Didn’t you say that it worked?

Xing Xi: It is said that when it was publicly announced that he is her boyfriend and if she did not deny it, it means that the relationship can be further developed. Are you sure?

Shíjiǔ Zāi: In theory, no problem. Have you done it?

Xing Xi: Well, the last time at her friend’s wedding reception, I have done it.

Shíjiǔ Zāi: Hhmmmm. Maybe your timing is too good, she can’t deny it…..

Xing Xi: …….

Xing Xi: When I told her mother that I am her boyfriend, she denied it.

Shíjiǔ Zāi: What? Have you already gone to see someone’s family? [cry]

Xing Xi: It is the book that you gave me telling me that I can further develop the relationship 😊

Shíjiǔ Zāi: I think the author means a small step. You have taken a big step….. [laughing cry]

Xing Xi: This is an important information. Should he not focus on it? 😊

Shíjiǔ Zāi: Well, what is your situation now?

Xing Xi: I have been driven back by her. Now, I am waiting for the train to head back to the city.

After a while, Shíjiǔ Zāi sent a voice message over. Yan Ru Yu played it and heard a hearty laugh: ‘Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. I am sorry. You got to let me laugh for a while.’

Yan Ru Yu: ‘……’

He said with a calm face to the audio message: ‘You can type. You don’t have to laugh out loud to me.’

Shíjiǔ Zāi sent another voice: ‘I think you forced her too tightly. You also said that she had a scum boyfriend before. And now she will be more cautious in facing her feelings.’

‘That does not mean that she will keep in her own turtle shell?’

‘This, oh. Mainly because she met you. If she met a trustworthy man like me, she would have come out of that shadow already.’

Yan Ru Yu: ‘…..’

He said coldly: ‘Do you believe that I will send your confession letter later to your wife?’

Shíjiǔ Zāi: …….

Shíjiǔ Zāi: Why do you think like that. I wait for you to come back and buy you a drink.

When Lan Ning returned home, her mother has already finished washing the dishes. Dad was taking a nap in the house. She quietly walked into the living room.

When mum saw her back, she was surprised and said: ‘Why come back so soon?’

‘Well….’ Lan Ning responded vaguely.

Mother took her hand and smiled at her: ‘I think this Mr Yan is really good. Handsome and a big writer. Well-mannered person.’ She said it with a mysterious smile: ‘Just now in the kitchen, he asked me how to prepare the roast chicken. Saying that he wants to learn and prepare for you next time.’

Lan Ning snorted. It turned out that he had been so serious in the kitchen just now is listening to the instruction of how to roast chicken?

This dish is her favourite dish. She had learned from her mother several times. But the material used by her mother to prepare the dish is not the one that she bought outside but her own. It is too complicated. She is too lazy to remember but he listens so seriously.

‘You can seriously consider him.’ Mum said.

Lan Ning stood up from the sofa and ran out in a panix. ‘Mum, I have something to do. I have to go out again!’

Sure enough, should not have let him go away. At least should have a good talk with him.

She stopped a taxi and head straight to the station. She rushed into the waiting room.

This train station was build in the last two years. It is large and beautiful. Because it is a small city, there are not many people in the waiting room. Lan Ning search around and could not see Yan Ru Yu.

She went to the ticket office and asked. The first train to the city is leaving at seven o’clock. He should have not left yet. Is it that he felt that he had to wait too long, decided to take the car and then head back by plane?

She took out her mobile phone and wanted to call him to ask him about the situation. The finger was placed on the dial button but then held back. What should she say to him after the phone is connected? Bon Voyage? Thank you for learning to cook for me?

Lan Ning started to sweat.

She looked down at the phone in her hand and walked out of the train station unconsciously.

‘Lan Ning?’

A male voice evoked her attention. She looked up and looked at the person in front of her for a long time. Only she is still uncertain: ‘Class Monitor?’



I love travelling and exploring the world, see things from the lense of my camera.... this is my space in sharing the many exciting places that I have visited as well as some of the wonderful gastronomy experience. I also loved baking while exploring new recipes. From time to time, I will also be sharing unique dishes that I cook for my family as well as sharing some of my baking experience / recipes.

  1. Two posts makes my day

    Thank you for the wonderful translations

    I guess at this point, LYR caught sight of Lan Ning and class monitor
    There are two possible reactions
    1) act bochap and leave for City A
    2) walk up to class monitor, introduce himself as LN’s bf and drag her away
