If I Have You, What More Could I Ask For In This Life? - Chapter 16.1
Translated by: Cherry
The night was quiet, under the white moonlight, Yisheng looked at that man quietly. Song Anchen extinguished the cigarette he held in his fingers, stood up, and prepared to get on the car. However, at that instant he turned around, he noticed Yisheng, who was standing a short distance away. The two of them looked at each other.
His gaze was steady, it was like a pool of water that was about to face a storm, calm now, but would be full of ripples later. Song Anchen let go of the car door that he was about to open and walked towards her. Yisheng paused and instinctively took a step back.
The distance between the two of them was less than three feet. He stopped and looked at her quietly, smiling.
Yisheng felt that this smile was very strange, it caused her to feel frightened. She opened her mouth and laughed awkwardly, “Did Younger Brother Ye come here to find me?”
He raised his eyebrow, there was a flash of anger between his brows that Yisheng had not seen for a very long time. He said, “I’m here to look at the moon.”
She was stunned. Then, she heard him say, “Older Sister Ye came back so early today.”
Song Anchen rarely called her Older Sister. In her memories, he had only called her Older Sister once. The first time was in junior high school, they were heading home together when suddenly, a ‘Cheng Yaojin’ came up to her and confessed his feelings to her. She was so scared that she did not know how to answer. It was Song Anchen who helped her respond. He said, Older Sister Ye already has someone she likes. He was smiling very casually and very sincerely, but Yisheng remembered that after that, his expression was very bad and he did not speak to her for a very long time.
When Song Anchen called her ‘Older Sister Ye’, she felt very stressed and could only act dumb, “Oh, it’s okay. It’s only ten-thirty now.”
Song Anchen did not respond to her words. However, he kept staring at her, he did not blink, and there were no emotions in his eyes. Yisheng felt very uneasy by Song Anchen, who was staring at her without saying a word. She surrendered, “Al…alright, it’s a little late.”
“I’m hungry,” Song Anchen suddenly spoke.
Yisheng could not imagine that when the person who refused to speak for such a long time opened his mouth, he would use this old excuse again. Yisheng almost fell over. After her last lesson of ‘serving the guest without any groceries’, her current fridge was filled to the brim. However, she promised, it was definitely not for this pig that often told her that he was hungry!
Yisheng rolled her eyes, “Well, you can go home and eat.”
“I’m very hungry.”
“You can drive to a shop to eat.”
“I’m so hungry that I can’t drive,” His expression was very bad, and his gaze was burning, forcing her to agree.
She gritted her teeth, “Well, you can come to my house to eat.”
“Alright,” He started to smile, his eyes full of emotions.
Yisheng glanced at him, not knowing whether to laugh or to cry. She led Song Anchen upstairs but felt a little sad in her heart. He was her childhood friend, the son of her father’s best friend, even if she wanted to stay away from him, but she could not. Even if she wanted to get close, she did not have the courage to.
As soon as she entered her house, Yisheng switched on the lights, but no matter how many times she pressed on the light switch, the light refused to turn on. In the dark house, Yisheng was stunned. It can’t be that the lights were spoilt, right? Song Anchen said from behind her, “It seems that the filament of your lights is broken.”
“That’s probably the issue. Wait for a little while, I’ll grab the ladder and change the lights,” Yisheng hurriedly took off her shoes and switched on the light elsewhere, running to the balcony to retrieve the ladder. Yisheng had just picked up the ladder and turned around when she saw Song Anchen standing at the entrance and taking the ladder from her hands, silently moving it to below the lights in the living room.
He said, “A guy should do this sort of thing,” After that, he removed his jacket and handed it to her, climbing up the ladder, “Hand me the lightbulb.”
Yisheng was stunned for a moment, completely immersed in the sudden warmth. She snapped herself out of it and quickly handed him the light bulb in her hand. He took the light bulb and started to install it. At that moment, there was suddenly the sound of a phone vibrating. In the house that was both dark and quiet, it was very loud.
“Help me accept the call,” Song Anchen said from above.
Yisheng hurriedly found the phone in the jacket she was holding and happened to see the caller ID. Eh? It was Luo Luoshi?
(T/N: Different pronunciations for the Luo)
She accepted the call and placed it by her ear before she spoke, “Hello?”
