If I Have You, What More Could I Ask For In This Life? - Chapter 5.3
Translated by: Cherry
However, no matter what, she kept feeling like there were pairs of curious eyes looking at her as if they recognized her. She did not think that she was so beautiful that she would be so outstanding.
“She’s the Ye Yisheng the Head Nurse talked about!” She passed by one of the dining tables and heard someone say.
“She’s so thin and weak-looking, there’s no flavor to her at all. She looks too much like a loli,” She heard someone else say.
She knew that her situation had been exposed. She wanted to raise her head to face the sky and cry, she had already been ambushed before the fight started and she was very unwilling to accept her fate. Her expression was distressed as she followed Zhao Jixiang to sit in the corner by the window, away from all the gossip.
Zhao Jixiang patted her shoulder sympathetically, expressing her understanding as she said, “I’ll treat you to this meal.”
Yisheng gazed at Zhao Jixiang with sparkling eyes, her eyes watery as she acted pitifully, “Thank you.” It was a waste not to eat it. Although she felt very disgusted with herself for doing this, she thought that since things were already like this, she could only resign herself to her fate.
Zhao Jixiang shuddered and she went to order food for them. Yisheng sat in a corner alone, looking at the group of people that would occasionally turn around to look at her. Having so much attention on her was truly not a good thing.
The Area C dining area that had been noisy suddenly quietened, at that time, Yisheng was leisurely drinking the tea that the waiter had brought her when everything suddenly turned quiet. She raised her gaze to look at what had happened, but her eyes met a pair of eyes that were as shocked as her.
Song… Song Anchen! She almost spat out the tea that was in her mouth. He wore a white doctor’s uniform, his originally fair skin, along with his handsome facial features caused people to feel that he looked very elegant and gentlemanly. This was the first time Yisheng saw him wearing his gold-rimmed glasses. That atmosphere that it gave off seemed to be tailor-made for his medical profession and was like a breath of fresh air.
He was just like how he was in the past. As soon as he appeared, it would cause others to feel shocked by his looks and have a sense of inferiority. He was also looking at her, his gaze was very complicated. She did not know what he was thinking, but it felt like there was a stream of colorful lights surrounding Yisheng, she could not see which light belonged to him.
Not far from her, there was someone at a table of nurses that said with starry eyes, “The Prince has arrived.”
The nurse at the same table as her knocked her head, “Wake up, you can only watch the cold prince from afar.”
“Ah, what a pity, he’s such a delicate handsome man.”
Yisheng quickly lowered his head, downing all her tea in one gulp. She was flustered, a sort of feeling that was very unexplainable. As expected, she was still unable to face Song Anchen. It had not changed at all. Zhao Jixiang came back with a few dishes. When she saw the green tea that Yisheng had finished drinking on the table, she instantly started to cry and wail, “This is the green tea that I ordered, why didn’t you even leave a bit for me!” Her voice was originally loud, and in Area C, it caused an echo, which caused numerous eyes to turn to look towards the small corner Yisheng was in, making her the center of attention.
Yisheng was completely embarrassed, after that, Zhao Jixiang used her body to block and she whispered in a low voice, “Beautiful lady, be calm, I’ll buy one more for you later.”
“That’s more like it,” Zhao Jixiang straightened up, taking the dishes and rice out of the tray. She happily picked up a piece of pork and put it into her mouth to bite, “You don’t know, but Area C’s most delicious meat dish is the red braised pork belly, it’s very good.”
Yisheng had no appetite at all, she picked up a few grains of rice with her chopsticks and slowly lowered her head to eat.
“Haha, Yisheng, are you embarrassed?”
“Huh?” Yisheng raised her head to look at her, confused.
“I saw that your eyes met the Cold Prince of our department and saw that you became silly after that.”
“Nonsense,” Yisheng hurried lowered her head to pick at her rice.
“Tch, don’t make excuses. There is no woman who doesn’t fall in love at first sight when they see Song Anchen. But Yisheng, my advice to you is to give up. This Cold Prince is very hard to get. He’s always very cold towards women, rejecting women very clearly. It’s as tragic as it sounds, ah,” Zhao Jixiang had an extremely sorry look on her face, “I graduated from the same University as him. In University, the campus flower courted him for five years. Yet her head did not even turn once. In fact, it would be better if he had a cold personality, at least you can say that he’s just cool. However, he’s very approachable towards males. This is something that hurts my heart a lot. A handsome man is being wasted just like this.”
“Why is he wasted?” Yisheng did not understand.
“Silly, everyone says that he’s actually…”
Yisheng listened intently.
“He’s actually gay!”
“Pft!” Yisheng spat her mouthful of rice onto Zhao Jixiang’s face. Zhao Jixiang was stunned for a moment at first. It was like the calm before a storm. Then, she suddenly started to scream frantically, running towards the bathroom while covering her face. After that, everyone looked at her in curiosity.
She laughed awkwardly, and then, she just happened to meet Song Anchen’s gaze. Her childhood friend was gay? She suddenly shivered. Actually… it seems… like that was possible.
“Yisheng?” Suddenly a few doctors walked in. The tallest doctor that was also handsome called out in surprise. Originally, she was the center of attention already, and after he called out to her, all kinds of looks were sent her way.
Her senior that charmed everyone…
Yan Heng seemed to not notice and was smiling, walking towards her, seemingly surrounded by holy light.
Yisheng instantly felt dizzy, as if there were choruses of angels by her ear… she wanted to smack her head on the tofu and just end it right then and there.
