Chapter 52.2 – Finding Glowing Beauty in Books (书中自有颜如玉)

We have now entered into the last month of the year! How have your year been? It has indeed been a memorable year for me. Another 22 days to Christmas! Anyone excited about Christmas yet? Your Christmas tree is up? Unfortunately, we have decided to not put up the Christmas tree this year as we would be away during the festive period and also I could not find the time to dig out those ornaments and tree from the storage…. excuses excused right? Hehehe….

A long read today on Lan Ning and Yan Ru Yu. Nothing exciting…. but I guess we can consider this as moving to another stage perhaps? hehehe….

Happy Reading! I hope that I would be able to find time to bring the next chapter up as soon as possible. Should there are any further delay to the next chapter, please continue to bear with me. Once again, thank you for your patience and continuous support.

Chapter 52.2:

After arriving at the door of the house, Lan Ning took out of the key from the bag and opened the door. Lan Ning’s mother was talking on the phone in the living room. Her face was a little pale. Seeing them come in, she just nodded slightly.

Lan Ning stood by the sofa and looked at her. When she finished speaking on the phone, she asked with concern: ‘Mum, what happened?’

Lan Ning’s mother put her mobile phone on the table and sighed: ‘Your aunty hurt her waist two days ago. And now it has gotten serious. I cannot go away these two days. She need help with the business, but I am not able to take time out….’

Lan Ning’s aunty runs a Bed & Breakfast. It is originally just a small and ordinary countryside small business. But after the planning and promotion by the government, it has become a tourist attraction. The natural pastoral scenery of the countryside has attracred many tourists. Lan Ning’s aunty small business is getting better.

Now it is the summer vacation. It is the peak of the tourism sector. She is sure that they are very busy due to the good business. No wonder her mother is anxious.

Lan Ning thought for a moment and said to her mother: ‘Would you like me to go over and help first? Anyway, I have nothing to do. So I can go and help out.’

‘This is a good idea. I will call your aunty now.’ Lan Ning mother smiled and picked up the phone to call. She looked at Yan Ru Yu, ‘do you want to go as well, Mr Yan? The scenery is very good. Maybe it will give you inspiration for writing.’

Yan Ru Yu nodded and said: ‘Sure. I can also give a hand.’

‘Good. Thank you.’

Lan Ning’s mother smiled and called Lan Ning’s aunty. Yan Ru Yu turned to looked at Lan Ning and said: ‘Then, I will go back to the hotel to pack.’

‘Well, okay.’ Lan Ning saw Yan Ru Yu leaving. She went back into the house to pack things up. Lan Ning’s mother and Lan Ning’s aunty finished the business talk. Her mother deliberately lowered the voice: ‘Yes, the object of Lan Ning’s marriage will follow. You help me to look and let me know your thoughts.’

‘What? When did Lan Ning started dating? I thought that this year to introduce her to someone.’

‘She hasn’t decided yet. I think this guy is good. You can help me.’

‘Okay. Oh. Listening to the fact that Lan Ning already have a marriage object, my waist doesn’t seem to hurt so much.’

‘….’

Lan Ning packed up and then saw Yan Ru Yu downstairs. Yan Ru Yu came very quickly. The taxi that he was in stopped in front of Lan Ning and honked at her.

Lan Ning sat at the back seat and let the driver drive them to the bus station.

The bus station of Lan Ning’s hometown is also newly renovated. It is very close to the railway station. After arriving at the bus station, she walked while saying to Yan Ru Yu: ‘Aunty’s Bed & Breakfast is not far from here. It only takes about an hour by bus.’

‘Yeah’ Yan Ru Yu just responded. A motorcycle was coming from the opposite direction. He leaned over and pulled Lan Ning onto his side: ‘Be careful!’

The motorcycle whizzed past and the roar of the motocycle seemed to remain in the ear. Lan Ning took a slap in the chest and looked up slightly. She looked into the eyes of Yan Ru Yu.

She turns red and said to Yan Ru Yu: ‘Thank you.’

‘No problem.’ Yan Ru Yu looked at the motorcycle that has gone far away. There was no emotion in his tone. ‘In the next novel, I want to write about a person who was killed because of riding a motorcycle. So those who do not obey traffic rules should think hard about it.’

…..Because I was almost killed by a motorcycle, this cause of death is really powerless…..

Lan Ning said: ‘There are so many traffic accidents reported in the news. And they have not seen to be successfully as a warning.’

Yan Ru Yu said: ‘I can write about a serial killing case. All the dead are killed because they do not obey the traffic rules. This is psychologically more horrible than a traffic accident. I will try to write in death. It’s a bit more tragic this way.’

Lan Ning: ‘……’

Then, the title of the book is called: ‘The Fury of the God of the Rules’? It’s also inexplicable to think about it……

She couldn’t help but smile: ‘Teacher, becoming a writer is really good. Who is not pleasing to the eye, can write and kill the person off in the novel.’

Yan Ru Yu said: ‘So, you better do not offend me.’

‘Oh.’ Lan Ning responded with a voice as she walked while looking at him. ‘If one day, I was really written into the novel by you, I would be more beautiful.’

‘Why beautiful? Wearing a long skirt and drowning in the sea, when found, the long black hair and red skirt bloom like a flower in the sea?’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

Teacher, you can easily edit.

‘You still don’t want to write about me into the book.’ Lan Ning laughed twice.

Yan Ru Yu looked at her sideways: ‘In fact, in the new book, your name had appeared many times. You did not realize it?’

Lan Ning was shocked: ‘Where? I didn’t see it!’

Yan Ru Yu said: ‘The actor in the book likes to eat cauliflower. And the woman will make cauliflower for him every week.’

Lan Ning: ‘……’

Thank you 😊

They bought the tickets at the station. Both of them sat in the bus for an hour and finally arrived into the other town in the country.

Even on a hot summer day, the wind across the filed is cool. And the air is filled with a touch of floral scent.

The ringing sound of the bicycle jingle could be heard from far away. Lan Ning and Yan Ru Yu stopped and watched the tourists ride on the bicycle on the small road.

Surrounded by idyllic and flowery seas, the flowers gently sway like wave under the breeze.

‘The environment here is really good. You can still take a summer break in the summer.’

Lan Ning said: ‘Yeah, this place has the most tourists in the summer. The Bed & Breakfast is almost full every day.’ She said and walked up on the path with Yan Ru Yu, while pointing to the left front and introducing the surrounding to him. There is also a river, the water is particularly cool. When I came here last time, I caught a lot of small crabs with my cousin. We enjoyed the crab which is very nice.’

‘Then, we will catch it tomorrow.’

‘Okay. My cousin is also on summer vacation…..’

Both of them walked and arrived in front of the Bed & Breakfast operated by Lan Ning’s aunty. This home is also very rustic. There is a fence outside and there is a small red mailbox at the door.

Lan Ning pushed the fence at the gate and walked in and shouted: ‘Aunty, Yi Meng, I have arrived!’

When hearing her voice, Sun Yi Meng rushed out of the hourse quickly.

She is the cousin of Lan Ning. She is now in junior high. During summer vacation, she usually come back to help her mother run the Bed & Breakfast. Just now listening to her mother about Lan Ning bringing her other half back to help, she was waiting eagerly to meet him.

After seeing Yan Ru Yu standing in front of the fence, she was stunned for a while because of his handsome look. And then she shouted to Lan Ning: ‘Cousin, your other half is so handsome!’

Lan Ning: ‘……’

She never imagined that the cousin whom had not seen for two years, after reunited, the first sentence would be this!
