If I Have You, What More Could I Ask For In This Life? - Chapter 1.3
Translated by: Cherry
The car stopped in the Feng Shan estate, Song Anchen turned his body to the side and said to Yisheng, “Stand here and wait for me, I’ll park the car into the garage first.”
Yisheng nodded, getting out of the car and watching him drive the car away. She raised her gaze to look over. It was still this old house, but the house had been renovated and had modern facilities added. It was only this floor that looked the same as all those years ago.
Song Anchen walked over and walked past her, “Let’s go.” Then, he walked off first.
Yisheng pursed her lips and smiled bitterly as she followed him. When she reached the third floor, Yisheng could not help but look at the door opposite the door they were entering, that was the house she had lived in before. Song Anchen looked at where she was gazing at, “That house has been empty all this while.”
“Ah? It hasn’t been sold yet?”
“I don’t know,” Song Anchen took out his keys and opened the door.
The door opened and the two middle-aged men chatting in the living room both paused, looking towards the doorway. Song Anchen peeked his head out and looked inside, smiling as he said, “Dad, Uncle.”
Ye Tianming smiled and nodded, his gaze turning to look behind Song Anchen. Ye Tianming was shocked. Yisheng walked out from behind Song Anchen, smiling as she nodded her head, “Dad, Uncle.”
“Ah, Yisheng!” Song Zheng was full of joy. He waved his hand to beckon her over, “Come over here, I’ve not seen you for six years already.”
Yisheng walked till she was standing in front of Song Zheng. Song Zheng looked around then turned his head to tell Ye Tianming, “If I recall correctly, Yisheng is older than Anchen by three months, right?”
“That’s right. Didn’t Yisheng often use that as a reason to bully Anchen in the past?” Ye Tianming was also in a good mood.
“Aiya, the two of them are both twenty-five, but my son looks so much older than Yisheng.”
“It’s good for boys to be more mature.”
The two adults started to chat again, unaware of the time and surroundings. Ye Yisheng stood at her original spot, unsure of what she should do. Song Anchen sat on the sofa at the side, completely focused on the phone in his hand.
She could only reluctantly sit at the side, not doing anything like an idiot.
The clock ticked, she endured it from eight-thirty in the morning till noon, when the two adults finally stood up. Ye Yisheng exhaled, they were finally done.
“Lao Ye, you’re probably hungry now. Let’s go have a few drinks, I still have so much I want to talk to you about.”
(T/N: This has the same concept as Xiao, but Lao as in ‘Old’, it’s a nickname as well, adding ‘Lao’ in front of the surname)
Ye Xiaoming smiled and said, “I can’t, my daughter is waiting here.”
“Aiya, Yisheng and Anchen definitely have endless things to talk to each other about. Let’s not disturb the young people, let’s go,” As he said that, he started to pull Ye Tianming to leave. Ye Tianming could not do anything and could only turn his head to tell Yisheng, “Stay here and wait for me.”
“Alright,” Yisheng forced herself to smile. After the two of them left, Yisheng lowered her shoulders, feeling defeated. She pressed on her forehead, looking exhausted. Her gaze turned towards Song Anchen with a smiling face, “Younger brother Song, do you have something for me to eat here?”
Song Anchen moved his gaze away from his phone with much difficulty. He looked towards Ye Yisheng, and stood up suddenly, walking towards the kitchen. Yisheng turned her head to look at his thin figure, dazed. He poured the fried glutinous rice cake that he had bought as takeaway from the shop just now into a bowl and placed it in the microwave to reheat. He boiled some water and made a bowl of seaweed soup. Then, he carried the food over and ‘threw’ it in front of her. After that, he sat back down, fiddling with his phone again.
Although Yisheng was curious about what he was doing and why his fingers kept pressing on the phone, she controlled herself, eating the fried glutinous rice cake she had longed for alone.
“Do you have a place to stay over here?” Song Anchen suddenly asked.
Yisheng blinked her eyes and placed the chopsticks down. She smiled and said, “Before I came here, I took a look at the rent prices on the Internet, erm, I haven’t found a suitable one, but I’ve found a suitable small hotel and I’ll bring my father to stay there for a few days temporarily before I look for a suitable house.”
Song Anchen frowned, “Phone number?”
“Ah? My mobile phone is from my university, but it’s long-distance and roaming, I’ll buy a phone number over here in a few days.”
He directly threw his phone at her, “Type it in.”
“But the long-distance and roaming…” One minute costs seven cents, she could not afford it. She was planning on keeping the few thousand RMB she had on her to use for living expenses before she started work, she could not use it carelessly like that.
“I’ll help you pay for the phone bill.”
Yisheng’s eyes shone, a rich person who was generously saving their poor old friend.
“But I’ll only pay what I should pay.”
Song Anchen would never let himself be at a disadvantage. This has never changed. Thankfully, that incident, only the heavens, the earth, she, and Lin Ruohan knew about it.
