Chapter 53.1:

Yan Ru Yu calmly accepted the praise from the cousin. ‘You are Lan Ning’s cousin? Hello, my name is Yan Ru Yu.’

‘Brother Yan, nice to meet you!’ Sun Yi Meng replied with great enthusiasm. She heard her mother’s voice calling from inside the house.

‘Lan Ning is here?’ She walked out extremely slowly wearing a pair of sandals with both hand behind supporting her waist.

Sun Yi Meng rushed to her mother and support her: ‘Mum, you are always like this. Come out to join the fun!’

Lan Ning also walked up and looked at her aunt. The waist seems to really hurt. ‘Aunty, you should be lying on the bed.’

Lan Ning’s Aunty smiled and said: ‘I heard that your boyfriend is coming today. I want to meet him earlier.’ When she finished saying it, she turned to look at Yan Ru Yu. ‘Is this the gentlemen?’

‘Aunty, hello.’ Yan Ru Yu stepped forward and politely said hello to her.

Lan Ning: ‘….’

Don’t call it so passionately.

However, this time, she couldn’t be bothered correcting him. She and Sun Yi Meng held her aunty left and right and carefully walked in.

Yan Ru Yu followed them from behind. The decoration in in the room is the same as the outside. It is cosy with fresh colour and there are many flowers and plants. The house has three floors. Lan Ning went into the innermost room on the first floor. Yan Ru Yu did not follow them and remained where he was.

He looked around the first floor. Lan Ning came out and said to him: ‘You stay on the third floor. There are any rooms on that floor.’

‘Okay.’ Yan Ru Yu carried his luggage upstairs with her. The decorative walls on the corridor were fixed at intervals. There were all special pastoral styles.

The house number of the room was named after the flower. Lan Ning led Yan Ru Yu to the room where pear was written and stopped: ‘You stay here.’

Yan Ru Yu nodded and asked her: ‘What about you?’

Lan Ning pointed to the room opposite of him: ‘Hai Cang’

Note: Hai Cang is the Chinese pronounciation for 海棠. Hai Cang is also known as Chinese flowering apple

Yan Ru Yu smiled: ‘The name is interesting’

Lan Ning reacted for a moment before she understood what he meant. She turned and said to him angrily: ‘Why do you say that!’

‘I am saying that the name is well written, what relations is that?’ Yan Ru Yu looked at her.

Although Lan Ning is angry, but she knows that it would be her lost if she further discussed it. She swallowed her anger and took a deep breath. ‘You can unpack your things. I will go down and see what help that are needed.’

‘Yeah’ Yan Ru Yu sighed, and his eyes fell on the name plate. The name plate is made of wooden frames with white paper insite. The name of the flower was written with a brush. After reading, Yan Ru Yu turned and asked Lan Ning whom had already walked towards the staircase: ‘Who wrote these words?’

Lan Ning turned around and saw him reading the name plate, then she sighed: ‘It was written by me. I used the brush and wrote it. I always thought that I wrote it nicely. But my aunty says it is not good.’

Yan Ru Yu is fair and decent: ‘It is not really good!’

Lan Ning: ‘……’

‘If you need to, I can help you write all the room name cards again. Considered it as the room charges compensation.’

‘Really?’ Lan Ning looked at him in surprise. She had seen his writing, it is ten times more beautiful than her. No, twenty times! ‘I am very happy if I can get Teacher’s ink treasure!’

‘I don’t think it is considered as treasure, after all, I am not a calligrapher.’

Lan Ning picked up her eyebrows: ‘Hey, it is rare to see teacher so modest.’

Yan Ru Yu laughed and pushed the door open. ‘When you need me to write, just tell me.’

‘Good.’ Lan Ning promised and went downstairs.

This homestay is run by her aunty and her husband. The husband is responsible for the food at the homestay because of the food craftsmanship. Aunty is responsible for the management. Both husband and wife take good care of the place.

Business over the summer vacations is always very good. Lan Ning stayed downstairs for a while and has already received several guests.

Sun Yi Meng changed her mother’s waist guard and then ran out towards Lan Ning to gossip: ‘Cousin, continue to tell me about my brother-in-law!’

Lan Ning gave her a black look: ‘I said already that he is not your cousin brother-in-law. So why are you calling him with such intimacy?’

Sun Yi Meng looked at her with the corner of her mouth. ‘I really don’t understand. Cousin brother-in-law is so handsome. Why are you still picky about it? Already bringing the person here, you still dare to say that he means nothing to you?’

‘What do you know? You are only a child. It is not so simple.’

Sun Yi Meng sighed twice. ‘Yes, I am a child. You are already 25 years old aunty.’

Lan Ning: ‘……’
