Edited by ABE
This afternoon, Ruan Yan and the others had no travel arrangements. Later, Chen Rongyu received a call from an old friend who specializes in tourism, so he invited their family to the Lingtian Resort developed by their company.

So after receiving the message in the afternoon, Chen Rongyu felt that it was better to have fun than being bored at home, so he agreed and took Ruan Yan and Gu Yuan and set off.
Lingtian Resort promoted the original ecological and natural style. It had its own fruit and vegetable garden, fish pond reservoir, and a large plum forest. Because it was located in the suburbs, the air quality was better, a natural oxygen tank. Although it was winter, the number of visitors was not decreasing, but because the New Year was approaching, there were more.
In the afternoon, the three of them went to pick fruit and ate another farmhouse meal. In the evening, Ruan Yan’s grandmother got tired because her body was easily exhausted, so she went back to rest first. Ruan Yan liked to play and couldn’t stay in the room, so she just went to see Chen Rongyu at the special open-air evening party organized by the resort.
For Ruan Yan, the main thing was to feel the atmosphere and relieve boredom.
Immediately after a show of the party, Ruan Yan was teasing Coco, who was squatting next to her, when she received a call from Zhou Mengyan.
Ruan Yan was shocked to learn that he had also arrived in Sucheng, but they were here tonight, and it was impossible to rush back to the old villa now.
Chen Rongyu next to her heard Ruan Yan’s response, and then stretched out his hand:
“Give me the phone.”
Ruan Yan handed out the mobile phone, and heard Chen Rongyu ask: “Why did you come to Sucheng?”
She didn’t know what was said on the other end, but Chen Rongyu smiled, and Ruan Yan’s head was rubbed inexplicably: “That’s really just right.”
Ruan Yan: “?”
After talking about it, Chen Rongyu said that he would send him their location later, and then hung up and returned the phone to Ruan Yan.
Ruan Yan was stunned: “Is he coming over?”
Chen Rongyu looked down at her, “Zhou Mengyan can’t book a hotel, so he can only come to us.”
Ruan Yan: ? ? ?
“Uncle, you are teasing me.”
“Eh, Yanyan, Zhou Mengyan came to Sucheng for business talks. It’s okay if he doesn’t see us tonight. It would be fine if he stays in the city. Why do you think he came all the way and insisted on coming to the resort?”
He asked in a low voice.
Ruan Yan tucked both hands in the pockets of the plush jacket, and the white porcelain face wrapped in the white cashmere scarf was hanging down slightly. She blinked her eyes blankly when she heard the words, “Yes…”
In fact, he didn’t have to go through so much trouble to come over. When they came here today, it would take an hour.
Ruan Yan’s head suddenly tilted towards Chen Rongyu, and said wittily: “Uncle, Zhou Mengyan should have come to see you, right?”
Chen Rongyu: “…”
Zhou Mengyan made a special trip to see him? Then this friendship is not going to turn purple.
The man approached Ruan Yan and tentatively asked: “Why can’t he come to see you?”
Ruan Yan was startled and shook her head quickly:
It was impossible for him to “just…”? How could Zhou Mengyan come to see her?
Seeing her affirmative reaction, Chen Rongyu raised his eyebrows slightly: “Yanyan, what’s the current relationship between you and Zhou Mengyan?”
“It’s… the first kind of relationship,” she moved her lips, and the volume became quieter, “just a contractual marriage.”
Apart from their interests, there is no superfluous relationship between them.

When Chen Rongyu heard the words, he remembered the tone of Zhou Mengyan he had just talked to, and a smile suddenly appeared on his face.
He patted her on the head:
“It’s okay, it’s fine.”
Ruan Yan: ?? What does it mean?
Chen Rongyu didn’t say anything. After nine o’clock, after watching the party, the tourists dispersed and the two also walked to the guesthouse.
Ruan Yan was holding Coco. When Coco put on the guide dog vest, he would enter the working state. Instead of running around, he would walk in front of Ruan Yan.
Chen Rongyu looked at it and said, “Coco is so obedient, when did you buy it?”
“It’s from Mengyan.” She smiled, “It’s really good, and I usually take it with me when I go out.”
The two walked forward and arrived at the entrance of a street market. Chen Rongyu typed a few words on the chat page, then put away his mobile phone and said: “Yanyan, you stand here for a while, I’ll go to the toilet.”
“Oh, all right.”
After Chen Rongyu left, Ruan Yan stood there and smelled the thick sugar-fried chestnut scent from the market in front, which made people greedy.
The market was built on a large bridge with a river underneath. Ruan Yan walked to the quiet stone road beside the river and heard the sound of gurgling water, which showed that she stopped.
Ruan Yan squatted down, “Coco, are you hungry?”
She took out the dog food she brought with her and fed some to Coco. Sometimes the dog was tired from work and needed rewards.
Coco ate the dog food in her palm, and Ruan Yan heard footsteps behind her. She looked back and saw a man approaching her. Without thinking, she turned her head back and smiled: “Uncle, how about we go to buy sugar-fried chestnuts later? I just smelled the fragrance, I really want to eat…”
After feeding the dog food, she stood up, patted her hands, and was suddenly wrapped in a warm coat behind her back.
“Wearing so little?”
Zhou Mengyan’s deep voice sounded from behind.
Ruan Yan was stunned, turned around quickly, and she was suddenly close to Zhou Mengyan. She smelled the familiar cedarwood fragrance, and she was dumbfounded: “Meng Yan…”
It turned out to be him…
The man put his generous coat on her, and Ruan Yan felt that she was half-wrapped in his arms, her face was full of heat, so she could only stand obediently and let him button every single button.
Zhou Mengyan looked down at the girl who had not seen him for many days, her black hair and red lips, and the face that had been constantly emerging in his mind over the past few days truly coincided.
After buttoning the buttons, he looked at her, his voice was a bit low in the winter night:
“Are you still cold?”
Ruan Yan shook her head, “Then what do we do?”
“Let’s go.” He just said.
As soon as Ruan Yan took his arm, she heard Chen Rongyu’s voice from the front: “Yanyan.”
Zhou Mengyan looked up and saw Chen Rongyu approaching. The latter met his gaze and curled his lips: “It must have been hard for you to come here.”
Zhou Mengyan put his hands in his pockets, his expression indifferent: “It’s okay.”
Chen Rongyu: You can really pretend.
Zhou Mengyan met Chen Rongyu when he was studying at a university abroad. The two were roommates and have known each other for nearly ten years. At this moment, when the two men meet, there is no need to be quiet.
“Let’s go, let’s go back.” Chen Rongyu said.
The three of them walked forward, Zhou Mengyan looked at Ruan Yan: “Don’t you want to eat sugar-fried chestnuts?”
“Yes, I want to eat!”
Chen Rongyu frowned: “You have eaten a lot of irritating things these days. If you eat this tonight, your throat will definitely hurt tomorrow.”
“Oh…” Ruan Yan half buried her face in the scarf aggrievedly, Zhou Mengyan looked back at her and said calmly: “I’ll buy some, I didn’t have dinner tonight.”
Ruan Yan’s eyes lit up suddenly, and the corners of her mouth curved upwards.
Hey, isn’t she able to eat it too?
Chen Rongyu looked at the interaction between them and snorted lightly.
When they walked to the shop selling sugar-fried chestnuts, the boss said it would take five minutes, so Ruan Yan sat in the shop first.
Chen Rongyu and Zhou Mengyan stood at the brightly lit door.
Chen Rongyu leaned against the door, lit a cigarette, then raised his eyes to Zhou Mengyan in front of him, took out the cigarette, and suddenly smiled:
“Well, tell uncle everything?”
“…” Zhou Mengyan glanced at him coldly and looked at the opposite street.
“I didn’t see it coming. Zhou Mengyan, I treat you as my brother but you actually wanted to be my nephew.”
Chen Rongyu felt happy when he made the man’s face blacken.
Zhou Mengyan had promised to help him take care of his niece, but he even took care of her on the back page of his account book.
After the sugar-fried chestnuts were ready, Zhou Mengyan took the bag, went into the store, and brought Ruan Yan out. The three of them strolled along the street. Finally, Ruan Yan bought another cup of passion fruit tea, and she was ready to go back happily.
When they arrived at the lodging area, Chen Rongyu went upstairs, and Zhou Mengyan went to the front desk to book a new suite.
After the reservation was made, he took the girl to the elevator. Ruan Yan thought of something, and asked in a low voice, “I originally booked a room with my grandmother, so now I…”
