If I Have You, What More Could I Ask For In This Life? - Chapter 6.1
Translated by: Cherry
Yisheng looked as Yan Heng walked closer to her, her hands and legs turning colder and colder. She kept staring at Yan Heng’s mischievous gaze. That was a pair of eyes that were waiting to watch the drama unfold. He knew what would happen if he did that, but in the end, he still walked to stand in front of her.
He sat down quickly, a hand supporting his jaw, his elbow resting on the table. There was a smile in his focused eyes as he said, “Little junior.”
“Senio,” Yisheng nodded her head, pretending to be calm, but inside, she was already starting to panic.
“Why didn’t you reply to my message just now? Do you know how long I waited for you in my office?” He was still smiling, his smile was extremely diabolic. Yisheng coughed lightly and said, “It was mainly because I was too hungry.”
Yang Heng nodded his head slightly, narrowing his eyes a little. He noticed how awkward she was acting and stood up to say, “You can continue eating, I’ll eat together with my colleagues.”
“Alright,” When he said that, Yisheng instantly relaxed. At this moment, she had a small ball of rice held in her chopsticks. She opened her mouth slightly, a little distracted by her thoughts. Her gaze kept unconsciously flitting towards Song Anchen who was happily talking to others. He was still smiling beautifully, which caused people that saw his smile to feel like they had gained warmth in the winter, leaving a refreshing feeling.
She sighed slightly, crap, perhaps it was like what Zhao Jixiang had said, her extremely beautiful childhood friend did indeed have a different sexual orientation. Even she, as his childhood friend had never been the recipient of the sort of smile he had now. This smile had only ever been directed towards people of the same gender.
She stuffed the rice into her mouth, troubled. She had just chewed a few times when she suddenly noticed that Yan Heng was still standing in front of her. She was slightly stunned as she raised her head to look towards him. She saw that he was still smiling, but that smile had a hint of helplessness and a bit of pity to it.
He knew everything. He had definitely guessed that Song Anchen was the childhood friend of hers that had occupied all her memories. Although she refused to mention his name and had only told Yan Heng that her childhood friend had skin that even women were envious of, a peerless and independent appearance that was unspeakably beautiful.
“Yisheng, your feelings are too obvious,” Yan Heng had a slight smile by the corner of his lips. Then, he turned to walk to his other colleagues and started to eat.
Yisheng bit her lips with all her strength and continued to pick at her food while eating. Zhao Jixiang, who had been sitting at the side and had not made a single noise throughout the whole interaction finally could not sit still anymore. She asked kindly, “Yisheng, are you alright?”
Yisheng returned to her senses, but was slightly confused as she nodded and said, “Hm? What is it?”
Zhao Jixiang glanced at her and said, “Yisheng, what did Doctor Yan mean by his words just now? What expression did you have to cause Doctor Yan’s expression to look so bad?”
“Oh, perhaps I just looked like I could not bear to part with someone, Doctor Yan’s feelings towards me are just that of an elder brother. So, he does not wish for me to have such an expression,” She randomly gave a reason to appease Zhao Jixiang. However, this move worked very well on Zhao Jixiang. She nodded her head understandingly, even patting Yisheng in a comforting manner, “There are many fishes in the sea, there’s no need to be too hung up on a particular person,” Zhao Jixiang thought for a moment before her face suddenly became stiff, “I think there’s some even today.” She patted her head in chagrin, she really could not remember, so she asked Yisheng, “What date is it today?”
“June first, Children’s day.”
“Ah! That’s right,” Zhao Jixiang suddenly brightened up and stood up quickly, turning her head towards Song Anchen’s table, “Xiao Zhuozi, have you booked the room for today?”
(T/N: For ‘Xiao Zhuozi’, ‘Xiao’ means little, and ‘Zhuozi’ means table, the ‘Zhuo’ refers to the actual surname of the character here. In Chinese, a common nickname is adding a ‘Xiao’ (little) in front of the surname, and as you’ll see later on, his surname is Zhuo. It’s actually a different character, but you can take it as she’s jokingly calling him ‘little table’.)
Song Anchen’s table had a tall doctor with white skin and a clean appearance, raised his gaze to look towards Zhao Jixiang. The face which had a smile on it originally became annoyed due to Zhao Jixiang’s shout. He looked extremely irritated, “I booked it a long time ago.”
“Ok!” Zhao Jixiang completely ignored his unfriendliness, made an ‘OK’ hand gesture, and sat back down. Then, she turned her face to say to Yisheng, “Today, we have a very loving event. Our Oncology department has organized an outing to go to the KTV together. Yisheng, just sing all you want.”
“Ah?” The corner of Yisheng’s mouth twitched. She was not good at singing. She had not listened to songs in a few years, and she did not really want to go to the KTV. However, it was good to get to know more colleagues on her first day of work, and it seemed like this was a good opportunity.
“Yisheng, let me tell you. All the handsome men in the hospital are in our Oncology department. If you see anyone you like, tell me, I’ll help be your matchmaker. All the new young doctors that have joined this time graduated from our A Medical University, I know all of them.”
Yisheng was quiet. What handsome man? It was all unimportant. It was enough to find someone who could love you with all their heart. There was no need to ask for too much.
T/N: From this chapter onwards, it’ll be a full chapter a week (starting on Friday/Saturday every week), this chapter part is a little short, normally I finish TLing a whole chapter before splitting it into parts, but since I was doing Chinese New Year stuff, I ended up not having any time to do translation… Anyway! Hope that y’all are enjoying this book~
