If I Have You, What More Could I Ask For In This Life? - Chapter 4.1
Translated by: Cherry
It was very hard for her to imagine that Yan Heng could rent this sort of good house. First, the location was near the Third Hospital, and this estate was new and was in a bustling location in the city. Based on the housing prices of B City, it was definitely expensive. Furthermore, this sort of house was mostly put up for sale, why was it being rented out? Yisheng found it strange as soon as she entered the room. The room had two rooms and a living room, the interior was brand new, and even the furnishings of the house were the same. She truly could not understand why it was being rented out. Yisheng could not help but ask, “Senior, the truth is, this house is yours, right?”
Yan Heng was stunned for a moment before he hurriedly waved his hands, “How could it be? A person with such high expectations like me, how could I live in such a small house?”
This was obviously a bachelor pad. Yisheng looked around, her eyes quickly scanning every corner of the room. She did not find anything wrong, hence, she could only give in. Perhaps she was truly overthinking things. She told Yan Heng, “Thank you, senior, I’ll return the rent money to you every month.”
“Little junior, you’re setting such clear boundaries with me?” Yan Heng started to rub her fluffy, soft hair again, looking at her with an affectionate expression. Yisheng also smiled foolishly in the way that she was used to. This had become the special sign of affection between the two of them and a necessary reaction.
After Yan Heng helped Yisheng clean up the place, it was already three in the afternoon. Yisheng felt bad about having him do that. Furthermore, it was in the middle of summer and it was a little hot, so she felt even more embarrassed.
“Senior, let me treat you to a meal.”
Yan Heng had just finished what he was working on and wiped the sweat in front of his forehead, panting as he said, “Alright, I want to eat a grand meal.”
There was a smile on Yisheng’s face, but she felt nervous in her heart. She refused to show her nerves and said, “Eat as much as you want, it’s my treat.”
“Great, great, I’ll take you to eat something good.”
Good food meant very expensive food. Yisheng could only cry without tears. Her wallet would be going on a diet this time. Sigh, she got her punishment for pretending to be richer than she was. The two of them left the estate and walked into the crowded city.
The two of them were on the streets, walking towards the North the whole time, speaking along the way.
“This estate is very near to the Third Hospital, it’s around a fifteen-minute ride from here. If you wake up late, there’ll be places selling breakfast on the way to work. You can just settle your breakfast like that,” Yan Heng introduced as he pointed at the eateries around them, the whole street was full of stalls that sold food and drinks, and Yisheng was dazzled by the sight.
“This estate is a newly developed area, people that can buy a house here are mostly very rich,” he pointed at the Ling Tian estate that Yisheng had walked past. Yisheng took the chance to glance at the entrance to the Ling Tian estate. The entrance was even bigger than the main entrance of her University. Just looking at the ‘Ling Tian Estate’ written on the marble, you could see the strong aura of this estate. The main entrance even had a large sculpture, a fountain… It was just an entrance yet so much effort was spent on it. It was not hard to deduce that the interior would be even more luxurious. The cars that entered and left the estate were imported cars that cost millions of RMB. This estate could only be described as impressive!
“I live in Block C, Unit 3, Room 401, you need to remember.” Yan Heng added after.
Yisheng snorted and rolled her eyes at him, “Don’t show off your riches or it’ll bring trouble! Senior!”
Yan Heng laughed loudly and took the chance to hug her, leaning close to her ear, “Don’t you know that nowadays, the richer you are, the more fortunate you are?”
Yisheng pinched his arm, “Get lost.” She used quite a lot of strength. Instantly, Yan Heng’s white and soft hands had a bruise. He hissed and kept saying that it was painful. Yisheng looked at him suspiciously, finding it strange as she pulled out his hand and glanced at it. She was shocked to find out that there was indeed a bruise. She opened her mouth and looked towards Yan Heng, only to see that that fellow was not angry, instead, he was smiling.
“Beep beep,” A Bentley drove out from Ling Tian estate, honking behind them. Yisheng reflexively looked back, pulling Yan Heng aside to make way, complaining to Yan Heng as she did it, “You’re a grown man, why are you still so delicate?”
Yan Heng only laughed, and that Bentley that should be driving away suddenly stopped. Yisheng raised her gaze to look at that car. She could not help but feel that it was quite strange, could it have broken down? She was thinking that when suddenly, that Bentley accelerated and sped off, scaring Yisheng so much that she turned pale.
“Little junior, when do you plan on holding my hand until?” Yan Heng laughed mischievously
Yisheng let go of his hand quickly as if she had gotten an electric shock. She did not know what to do with her two hands and could only hide them behind her back. She said, “Let’s go, I’ll treat you to a meal.”
Yan Heng, on the other hand, was smiling very brilliantly.
In this crowded area, there was an elegant restaurant. It stood out among the other stalls in the street. Its exterior was extravagant, its interior was elegant. It was a good place for the upper-class people to gather and was also a good place for the white-collar workers in the city to go on dates at. Yan Heng brought Yisheng to this place. The two of them sat by the window and Yan Heng ordered a French red wine steak, Boston grilled prawns, then handed the menu to Yisheng, “What do you want to eat?”
The first thing that Yisheng looked at were the prices of the dishes that Yan Heng had ordered. When she saw that they were all three figures, her blood turned cold. Senior, how could you be so cruel? She hesitated as she flipped the pages back and forth. She could not bear to order anything. She pretended to be discontented, a bored expression on her face, “I don’t feel like eating anything here.”
Yan Heng seemed to have anticipated her response from the start. He had had a smile on his face, “What do you like to eat?”
“Hm, actually, I’m not a picky eater. The main reason is that recently, I’ve been very heaty and I’ve got a sore throat.”
(T/N: Not sure if heaty is a concept in all countries, but the idea is that there are different kinds of foods, heaty food, and cooling food, so for example, if you eat too many chips (heaty food), you’ll get a sore throat, or like if you eat too much heaty food in general (e.g. fried food…), your body will be heaty, and hence you’ll fall sick (sore throats usually), and the way to counteract that is to eat more light, or cooling food, or drinking water (which cools down the body). I might not be entirely accurate in explaining this… It’s just the general knowledge I’ve been brought up with… )
T/N: This is going to be a two part chapter again!
