If I Have You, What More Could I Ask For In This Life? - Chapter 25.2
Translated by: Cherry
Yisheng rolled her eyes and grabbed her phone to check the time. Unexpectedly, someone was calling her. She paused for a moment. It was her senior. After a while, she accepted the call.
“Little Junior Sister, do you have time to eat dinner together?”
Yisheng smiled and said, “Yep, where do you want to eat?”
“Let’s go to the place we went to the last time.”
“Alright,” She ended the call and booked a taxi to the restaurant they had eaten at the first time. Although it was only a fifteen-minute walk to the restaurant, she did not want her senior to wait. As soon as she got off the car, she saw Yan Heng, who was sitting at the seat they had sat at last time, by the window.
He was wearing formal clothes, a suit and proper shoes, his hair styled in a very fresh manner. His eyes that always told people things were staring at someplace as if saying, why is the person I’m waiting for not here yet?
Yisheng slowly walked closer and managed to see his gaze turning to her as he smiled at her. Yisheng also smiled back at him, but she did not notice that his smile was a little stiff.
After Yisheng walked in, the two of them sat opposite each other. Yan Heng opened his mouth first, “This time, senior is prepared to spend a lot of money. Feel free to order anything you want to eat.”
“Senior, I should be treating you since you’re leaving.”
Yan Heng stiffened before smiling at her awkwardly and saying, “The news spread so fast. You found out so quickly.”
“Congratulations,” Yisheng smiled and said.
Yan Heng only curved his lips a little, looking like he did not care.
“Senior, ever since I got to know you, you’re always the one buying good food for me. When you bring me to eat, you’re the one paying. You’ve never forgotten to give me a present during birthdays and important holidays. Sometimes, I don’t know how to repay you,” Yisheng took a deep breath and continued to say, “Actually, in the past, I had thought that you liked me. Haha,” She laughed awkwardly, not daring to meet Yan Heng’s gaze. She knew that at that moment, he would be looking at her with a very intense gaze and she could not deal with that sort of gaze.
“I hope that your studies go well, and hopefully you’re able to marry a foreign girl,” When she finally raised her eyes to look at Yan Heng, there was no intense gaze as she had expected. He was simply giving her a mild smile and covering her hand with one of his hands.
Yan Heng tightly grabbed onto Yisheng’s hand, using his large palm to cover her whole hand. He said, “Chase what you want. Don’t be too passive.”
Yisheng just looked at him in a daze.
“If I asked you to choose between Song Anchen and me, who would you choose?”
“Senior…” It was rare for her to see her senior ask a question with such seriousness, so she was a little stunned.
“I missed your childhood, your teenage years, these are the two purest stages in one’s life,” He tightened his hold on her hand and Yisheng even felt a bit of pain, “It’s fine if I missed it, but…” Yan Heng did not continue, a mocking look appearing on his face, “Yisheng, you need to know one thing.”
“Hm?” Yisheng stared at him.
“No one is good to another person in the world for no reason. Everyone has their secrets.”
“Anyway, let’s order dishes and eat. This can be considered our final dinner,” Yan Heng called the waiter over and ordered quite a few dishes. He even ordered a 1980 wine. Yan Heng returned to his happy-go-lucky self, “Three years later, you’ll probably be married.”
“Of course not, I won’t get married.”
“Silly girl, you can’t not get married. You really don’t know how to take care of yourself.”
Yisheng puffed up her cheeks, pretending to be angry, “Rubbish. I already know how to take care of myself very well.”
Yan Heng smiled but did not say anything, picking up his glass and taking a sip of wine, “You like to eat spicy food, but you don’t know how to nourish your stomach after. You only know how to endure after you feel unwell, never thinking that eating medicine might help you get better faster instead of making it worse. You don’t know the weather forecast. When you’re cold, all you know how to do is shiver, waiting for the arrival of the flu. When it rains, you only know how to run around in the rain and after you’ve gotten drenched, you don’t know how to eat medicine to prevent it.”
These were all things that Yisheng had once done. Every time she ate spicy food, her senior would force her to eat some stews that would nourish her stomach. When she was feeling unwell, her senior would be the first to realize and send medicine to her hostel block and instruct her to eat the medicine. She did not care about the weather forecast, but her senior always took note of it. He would always send her a message to tell her how the weather is and to take note and keep warm. He would say things like remember to bring your umbrella. If she did not reply to his message, he would give her a call.
Her senior took care of her extremely well.
Yisheng suddenly remembered during her university days and suddenly she scrunched up her nose and pressed her lips together, trying to prevent herself from getting too emotional. Her senior had treated her so well, but she was unable to even repay him a little.
“Doctor Song is a careful person, little junior, you need to hold on tight to him. In the hospital, not only do the nurses covet him, the female doctors are often trying to flirt with him,” Yan Heng acted like he was telling on Song Anchen. There was no trace of the seriousness that had been there before. As expected of her senior, his expression changed quickly.
However, Yisheng could not laugh. She forced a smile, “I’m too different from him. We aren’t suitable.”
“You haven’t gotten together with him, how do you know that the two of you aren’t suitable?”
“Senior, I can’t read him.”
“Then, are you able to read me?” Yan Heng suddenly asked.
“Of course, senior is a gentle and kind man.”
Yan Heng gave a simple smile, taking a sip of the red wine in his glass before pouring another cup, “There’s no need to read everyone completely when interacting with someone. All you need to know is that I treat you well, and all you need to know is that you love Song Anchen and want to be together with him.”
After Yan Heng said that, he finished all the red wine in his glass in one gulp. He drank the red wine like water. Yisheng felt that today, her senior was very strange.
The two of them ate for very long and talked for very long. When they finally paid the bill, night had fallen.
Yan Heng had drunk alcohol and could not drive his car. Yisheng took his place and drove Yan Heng home. Yisheng had learnt driving from Yan Heng. Although she did not have professional instruction, but she did have talent in driving and drove quite well. It was a pity that she had not gone to get a driver’s license yet.
They both stayed in Ling Tian estate. In the past, Yisheng would be worried about meeting Song Anchen, but today, she was not scared at all. After all, he was not in the city right now. He could not come back before the stipulated time. She parked his car at the underground garage. She had just entered and wanted to turn to the area for Block C but accidently scraped the car against a car that was entering from another entrance. It made a very loud sound and the two cars braked at the same time.
Yisheng had braked the car and steadied herself before looking at the other car, instantly feeling stunned.
Song Anchen was sitting on the car, staring at her, but his gaze was very cold. She could not tell what he was thinking from his expression with his two hands holding onto the steering wheel. Yisheng suddenly felt like she had been ‘caught in bed with someone else’, and instantly felt uneasy.
Suddenly, Song Anchen reversed his car and made a turn, quickly driving out of the garage. Yisheng could even hear the loud screeching sound of the intense friction between the ground and the car wheels. It made her feel uneasy. Yan Heng, who had seen the whole thing rubbed Yisheng’s head, “I’ll lend you the car, you can go give him an explanation.”
“There’s no need,” Yisheng continued to drive and parked the car properly. Her face did not have much emotion and Yan Heng did not know how she was feeling.
