Chapter 57.1:

Lan Ning was again blushing by the words from Yan Ru Yu. She felt strange as she knew that she does not blush easily before she knew Yan Ru Yu. Now, she is being criticized at any time.

She looked at Yan Ru Yu and coughed as a disguise: ‘Teacher, have you heard of the word unrequited love? Unilateral heartbeat, don’t fall in love, is called unrequited love.’

Yan Ru Yu: ‘…..’

Sun Yi Meng who has been secretly listening at the corner of the wall, finally couldn’t help but sigh: ‘Haiz, why don’t you both go across the street and talk.’

Her slight voice also caught the attention of Yan Ru Yu and Lan Ning. Both of them turned at the direction that she was hiding.

Sun Yi Meng who was caught, raised the watermelon in her hand and smiled at them: ‘Oh, you continue. I am just enjoying my melons.’

Lan Ning: ‘……’

At the end of her discussion with Yan Ru u, she did not agree to what he called ‘Proposal’. Yan Ru Yu does not look at all discouraged. Maybe he has some new plans in his mind.

Lan Ning’s aunty also learned the new progress of her and Yan Ru Yu from Sun Yi Meng’s mouth. She couldn’t wait to call Lan Ning’s mother to inform her of the news.

On the fifth day of staying in the hotel, Lan Ning’s mother also rushed over and asked about the situation of Lan Ning and Yan Ru Yu. Her mother smiled and said: ‘It’s good to determine the relationship. I am also thinking that a stone has fallen. Mr Yan is really good. You two would be happy in your love.’

Lan Ning: ‘…..’

She didn’t know how Yan Ru Yu managed to win her mother over. Is it because he learned how to prepare her favourite chicken in the kitchen together?

Although there are hidden agenda for her mother to come send them over to the homestay, but Lan Ning is still very happy. She does not have much worries. In the day, she accompanied Yan Ru Yu to explore the surrounding. At night, she checked out Yan Ru Yu’s manuscript in the room.

On this day, both of them went to the river and caught a lot of shrimps and crabs. As the chef of the homestay, Father Suun made a hearty dinner. Yan Ru Yu also got his wish to eat the legendary fried crab.

Lan Ning, who was peeling the crab said to her mother: ‘Mum, I will be returning to the city in two days time.’

Mother glanced at her: ‘So fast?’

‘Well, I have been on vacation for so many days, it is time to go back.’

‘Will you go back with Yan Ru?’ Lan Ning’s mother has been calling Yan Ru Yu that seems natural. It has become from ‘Mr Yan’ to now ‘Yan Ru’ over the past 2 days.

Although she is ok with that, she is still not used to it. She shook the goosebumps from herself and nodded casually.

Lan Ning’s mother looked at Yan Ru Yu whom was sitting opposite and talked with her prospective son-in-law. ‘Ning Ning is alone out there. I have to trouble you to take care of her.’

‘Of course, Aunty. You can rest be assured. I will take good care of her.’ Yan Ru Yu assured Lan Ning’s mother.

Lan Ning’s mother said again: ‘Don’t be too tough at work. The manuscript remembers to submit on time.’

Yan Ru Yu: ‘…….’

Lan Ning grinned and snorted and burst out laughing.

Yan Ru Yu looked at her and assured Lan Ning’s mother: ‘The manuscript of the new book will be handed over before the end of this year.’

Sun Yi Meng added into the fun. ‘Okay, we all heard that. If you don’t hand over the manuscript, you don’t get onto Lan Ning’s bed.’

Lan Ning: ‘….’

Aunty took the chopsticks and knocked the head of Sun Yi Meng. She told her to shut up and continue eating.

After the meal, Lan Ning and Yan Ru Yu sat down under the tree by the window to enjoy the cooling evening breeze. There were unfinished watermelons on the small bench under the tree.

Yan Ru Yu had not spoken for a while. Lan Ning kicked him on the leg lightly and asked: ‘What are you thinking about?’

The brow of the Yan Ru Yu is slightly wrinkled. He seems to be thinking hard about the problem. ‘I am thinking that I cannot get onto your bed if I don’t submit the manuscript’

Lan Ning: ‘….’

Is there even a problem to think about?

Lan Ning’s face has turned reddish. Yan Ru Yu talked to her with a very serious expression: ‘Is it right that if I hand in the manuscript on time, I can go onto your bed….’

‘Oh! You can try that again!’ Lan Ning’s voice seemed to be angry with thunder. Yan Ru Yu stopped talking.

He turned to looked at her. Lan Ning’s face is very red. She looks angry.

Yan Ru Yu couldn’t help but grinned. He looked at her: ‘If I write the manuscript seriously, I can deliver it in half a month.’

Lan Ning: ‘….’

Get lost!

She cannot wait to throw the watermelon rind at him.
