Chapter 51.2:

At 11 am, Shen Yun called her and said that he had booked a nearby rotisserie. This rotisserie is quite famous here. It has been open for several years. Every time Lan Ning comes back, she will go there to dine at least once.

She sent the address to Yan Ru Yu and changed her clothes to go out.

When she arrived, Shen Yun had already arrive waiting at the door. Lan Ning walked over and chatted with him while waiting for Yan Ru Yu.

Yan Ru Yu came taking the taxi. The taxi stopped in front of Lan Ning and Shen Yun.

When the door opened, Yan Ru Yu stepped down with his long legs.

‘You arrived so fast.’ Lan Ning looked at the time subconsciously. She only got here a few minutes ago.

Yan Ru Yu: ‘When it comes to eating, I am very energetic.’

Lan Ning smiled and didn’t answer. Shen Yun said hello to him politely and said: ‘Since everyone is here, let’s go in.’

‘Yeah.’ Yan Ru Yu stepped up next to Lan Ning and followed them in. The waiter took them to the booked location.

What are they going to do with the seating?

Lan Ning looked at the four seats in front the them and hesitated. It is not appropriate for her to sit with whomever. But letting Teacher sit with the Class Monitor…. That seems not very appropriate.

The waiter originally wanted to hand the menu to them but found that all three of them did not move to the seat. It was a bit unclear. His gaze swept over the three of them and then stood patiently while waiting.

Lan Ning thought for a moment and then sat down by the window. As for the two of them, they can choose their own seats.

Because Yan Ru Yu was closer to Lan Ning, he sat directly beside her. Shen Yun did not say anything. He walked and sat down opposite them.

When the waiter saw that the seating arrange is finally sorted, he handed the menu over.

The dishes were mostly choosen by Lan Ning. The two men only symbolically ordered two dishes after she finished ordering. After the waiter left, the table suddenly appeared quiet.

Shen Yun picked up the glass and took a sip of tea. He asked Lan Ning: ‘Since you are an editor at a magazine. Is Mr Yan also an editor?’

‘Ah, he….’ Lan Ning turned her head to look at Yan Ru Yu, indicating for his opinion.

Yan Ru Yu: ‘I am an author.’

Shen Yun nodded: ‘The authors of 《米斯特里》 ‘Mistry’ are all masters.’

Lan Ning looked at him curiously: ‘Class Monitor, do you also read our magazine?’

‘Well, I buy every issue.’ Shen Yun said, laughing at her. ‘I wanted to tell you yesterday, don’t call me Class Monitor. It is all back in elementary school.’

Lan Ning also laughed: ‘But you are always the Class Monitor in my heart.’

Yan Ru Yu drank the water and put down the cup. Looking at Shen Yun, he asked: ‘Mr Shen, what do you do?’

‘I teach Chinese in High School’ He said. He paused and laughed at himself. ‘Speaking of which, I have also written for magazine.’

‘Ah yes!’ Lan Ning looked at Yan Ru Yu. ‘Class Monitor has good grade in his languages, especially in essays. He has evern won prizes.’

Yan Ru Yu said: ‘I also have. And a lot.’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

‘Of course, I cannot be compared with Mr Yan.’ Although he does not know the pen name of Yan Ru Yu, he could see that he is a master in ‘Mistry’ and that is why Lan Ning called him Teacher. He must be a very famous writer. ‘The thing I had written are based on mood. It is not easy to really write. I admire Mr Yan on this point.’

‘What is there to admire him…. He often drags the manuscript.’ Lan Ning couldn’t help but said it out.

Yan Ru Yu: ‘….’

Shen Yun smirked at the opposite side. Yan Ru Yu squinted and looked at Lan Ning. ‘I have said that the next book will be given to you within this year. What else do you want?’

‘Even if this can be delivered on time, it will not erase the traces of your past.’

‘Oh, if that’s the case, then I don’t mind adding another to my bad track record.’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

She turned her head and looked at Shen Yun. ‘See that? Where is this person worthly of your admiration?’

Shen Yun smiled and looked at Yan Ru Yu: ‘I boldly guessed that Mr Yan’s pen name would be Xing Xin?’

Lan Ning was shocked: ‘Xing Xin, the stigma of Teacher is so obvious!’ He even thought of him when mentioning about manuscript!

Shen Yun said with a smile: ‘I occasionally write for the magazine. So I have heard of the rumours around Teacher Xing Xin.’

Lan Ning: ‘……’

Teacher has become a myth in the drafting world.

Shen Yun said: ‘In fact, in private, I am also a ready of Teacher Xing Xin. I also read the ‘Death Message’ that has recently listed.’

Yan Ru Yu said: ‘Thank you for your support.’

Lan Ning: ‘……’

Listening to both of them are really tiring.

She stood up and step out from her seat. ‘I am going to get some drinks and snacks. What do you want?’

Yan Ru Yu: ‘Take whatever you like to eat.’

Lan Ning showed him a smile and turned to Shen Yun. Shen Yun said: ‘I am fine with anything’

Ok.

She walked only two steps away before she was hailed by Yan Ru Yu. ‘Don’t take too much. You will lose money if you cannot eat the main later.’

Lan Ning: ‘…….’

After she walked away, Shen Yun suddenly asked Yan Ru Yu: ‘Is Teacher pursuing Lan Ning?’
