If I Have You, What More Could I Ask For In This Life? - Chapter 17.1
Yisheng had not seen her senior in many days. It was later on that she heard from Zhao Jixiang that recently, the hospital had sent a medical team to the countryside, and the attending doctors were the first group to go to the countryside. Yisheng realized that it was very tiring to be an attending doctor. Not only did they often need to face important surgeries, they even need to do medical research. Sometimes, they would only be able to sleep a few hours a day. Although her senior was still young, he had to face the pressure of being an attending doctor.
At seven o’clock in the morning of Qixi Festival, she received a message from Yan Heng, it was a simple message: Little Junior, the Qixi Festival that the cowherd looks forward to has arrived. You should be happy too. The words did not reveal much of his emotions, but there was a special heartfelt feeling to those words. Yisheng replied: Senior, the weaver girl expresses that she is very happy. After she sent that message, she wanted to get up and get ready to go to work, but suddenly realized that it was Sunday and she happened to be on holiday today. When she realized that she was on holiday, she instantly fell back onto the bed and slept. When she woke up, it was already four-thirty in the afternoon.
(T/N: Qixi Festival is a Chinese festival celebrating the annual meeting of the cowherd and weaver girl in mythology. It’s also known as the Chinese Valentine’s Day)
She scratched her head and walked to the kitchen, wanting to heat up a glass of milk to drink. She had just put the milk in the microwave when her cell phone rang. She hurried to answer the call when she found out that it was Zhao Jixiang, who was supposed to be the busiest during Qixi Festival?
“Hello?” Yisheng picked up the call, finding it strange.
“Ah…” Instantly there was the sound of Zhao Jixiang going crazy. Yisheng was shocked, “Have you gone crazy?”
“Yisheng,” Zhao Jixiang lamented as if Yisheng had died, “My Xiao Zhuozi returned to school today to write a report instead of accompanying me during Qixi Festival.”
(T/N: Cause it’s Chinese Valentine’s Day, so normally couples spend it together)
Yisheng’s mouth twitched. She had thought that something big had happened, but it was such a small matter? She said rudely, “You can celebrate it alone, then.”
“How solitary, how lonely,” Zhao Jixiang was extremely aggrieved as she said, “Even though I have a man, I need to experience the life of a single person.”
“What do you want to do?” Yisheng looked at the ceiling and rolled her eyes. It was such a trivial matter, but she made it sound so painful. She was truly overreacting. However, Zhao Jixiang did not think that way. She had originally planned everything out, watch a movie, got to a bar, kiss, and if she was brave and fierce enough, she would offer herself up. She had already made all the plans, but in the end, she was met with a complete failure. Without the male lead, what was the use of her plans?
Zhao Jixiang held the two movie tickets she had queued for a few hours for, feeling very unhappy, “Yisheng, watch a movie with me, it’s my treat.”
“Ah? Two girls watching a movie together on Qixi Festival?” Why did she find it so strange?
“Yes, I’ll wait for you at the movie theatre at People’s Square.”
Yisheng found it strange. It was Chinese Valentine’s Day. Why were the two of them watching a movie together? When she met up with Zhao Jixiang, she was very shocked. Zhao Jixiang had dressed up very carefully today. She had on foundation, eye shadow, lipstick, and was wearing a sexy red dress. It was obvious that she had put in much effort for today. Compared to her, Yisheng was dressed too simply, a white cotton T-shirt and faded jeans.
Zhao Jixiang affectionately held Yisheng’s arm and said sweetly, “Come one, let’s go to the cinema together.”
Yisheng looked at Zhao Jixiang strangely, “You seem very happy.”
“Whether I’m happy or not, it’s still a day, so why shouldn’t I be happy every day?” After she said that, they entered the movie theatre together.
Obviously, it was a big mistake for them to watch a movie today. When they saw all the couples enter the movie theatre together, the two of them seemed very out of place. When the two of them sat down, Zhao Jixiang was unhappy again. She watched the couples that were acting lovey-dovey in the other seats and said, full of envy, “They’re seriously too much.”
Yisheng, who was eating popcorn and waiting for the movie to begin was shocked by Zhao Jixiang’s sudden outburst. Her hand trembled and she dropped the popcorn in her hand. She turned her head and gazed at Zhao Jixiang, who was pursing her lips.
“Next year, I’ll buy all the odd number seats in all the movie theatres in B City, to make sure no one can sit in a pair!” After that, Zhao Jixiang grabbed the popcorn that Yisheng was holding in her hand and stuffed it in her mouth to munch on.
Look, the person who is unable to eat the grapes does not say that the grapes are sour, instead, she wants to directly destroy the grape seeds so that no one can eat the grapes ever again.
