If I Have You, What More Could I Ask For In This Life? - Chapter 9.2
Translated by: Cherry
“Everyone has left, do you want me to pay for the drinks?” Song Anchen raised his eyebrow. Yisheng wanted to strangle him. She knew that with Song Anchen’s personality, he would not even wrinkle his brow as he teased someone to death.
She sat back down in her original seat, pushing the bag of condoms back to him, “I’ll give it back to you.”
“How can I take back something that I’ve given to someone? You can keep it and use it.”
“…” Yisheng was so angry that she could only forcefully push it back towards him, “You can use it yourself.”
Song Anchen did not reject her anymore and placed it by the side, chuckling, “I had to use it anyway.”
Yisheng almost felt paralyzed. This was all her own fault. She knew that if she called Song Anchen, she would die in a horrible way. However, she had not thought that he would be so cruel!
“Why did you think of going on a blind date today? Are you scared that you won’t be able to get married out?” Song Anchen turned his head to look at her, a faint smile on his face.
“How did you know that I was on a blind date?”
“You suddenly gave me such a strange phone call. I didn’t think that you were confessing to me, and with your personality, you won’t joke with me in this sort of manner.”
“You’re very logical,” Yisheng said, annoyed.
Song Anchen smiled slightly, calling a waiter over and ordering a cup of pure Blue Mountain coffee from Jamaica. He even asked Yisheng, “What do you want to drink?”
He even chose the best drink for himself. Yisheng felt that it was a little unfair and said, “Another cup of pure Blue Mountain coffee from Jamaica.”
After the waiter left, Song Anchen smiled faintly, “The caffeine content in this sort of coffee is very low, and it’s quite healthy. It’s a pity that in this city, only this cafe sells pure Blue Mountain coffee, and this shop only sells five cups of pure Blue Mountain coffee a day, each cup costs eight hundred yuan. The owner of this shop is from Japan, and he managed to earn some fame for his shop from selling pure Blue Mountain coffee.”
A cup of coffee was 800 yuan, and two cups would cost 1600 yuan. She wanted to fall to the ground and never get up again. She did not know that pure Blue Mountain coffee was so expensive. She had less than two hundred yuan in her pocket! She said, “You can pay for the drinks.”
“Yes, I’ll pay,” He laughed, “Ye Yisheng, who do you think will get married first? You or me?”
Yisheng was slightly stunned, she did not think that he would ask such a question. She had never thought about the answer to this question before. Or perhaps, she did not dare to think about such a thing. She said unnaturally, “Why are you bringing this up?”
“It’s nothing. It’s just that the incident today suddenly reminded me that we are no longer young.”
“You… you want to find a girlfriend?” She asked, feeling slightly uncomfortable.
“My Dad brought this topic up before.”
Yisheng suddenly felt uncomfortable. But she did not have the right to feel that way, she could only force herself to smile, making herself look like she was very happy. “That’s good, you should find one.”
At that moment, the waiter brought the two cups of Blue Mountain coffee over. Yisheng directly took the cup of coffee and drunk it all in one gulp. She completely ignored the fact that this was fresh from the pot. She bared her teeth as she burnt her whole mouth, her tears falling straight away. She hurriedly wiped away her tears and said with a smile, “It’s so hot.”
Song Anchen did not say anything and quietly drunk that cup of coffee. After thinking for a long time, he said, “Ye Yisheng, why did you come back? And why are you constantly wandering about in my world after I’ve already planned everything out?”
Yisheng suddenly paused, speechless. She stared at Song Anchen, who was drinking his coffee seriously, in a daze. He was so indifferent to everything, when he said that sentence, he had probably been holding himself back for a long time. She had thought that there would not be any gaps between the two of them. She thought that the both of them would be indifferent to what had happened six years ago. However, it turned out that she had overestimated him, and that she had also overestimated herself.
“From now on, I won’t bother you anymore,” Yisheng pursed her lips. She was only able to answer in such a way.
Song Anchen chuckled, turning his face towards her to say, pausing between each word, “You’ve, already, bothered, me.”
“Then what do you want from me?” Yisheng suddenly wanted to cry. She looked towards Song Anchen, her eyes seemingly filled with tears. Song Anchen closed his eyes slightly, “Go date someone.”
“Is that what you want?” Yisheng was stunned by his answer and looked at him, feeling a little sad.
The hand Song Anchen was using to hold his cup froze for a long time. His eyes were filled with unknown emotions, like a pool of deep water that had become stagnant. He took a sip of the Blue Mountain coffee and faintly said, “Yes, that’s what I want.”
Yisheng instantly stood up, grabbed her bag, and wanted to leave, but Song Anchen held her hand, not letting go.
“I’ll go fulfill your wish and find a man to date,” Yisheng said angrily.
Song Anchen handed that plastic bag to her, “You can use this in the future.”
Yisheng breathed out, her tears suddenly falling uncontrollably. She threw the bag aside and struggled to pull her hand out of his grasp, leaving the cafe angrily. She kept scolding him in her heart, he was such a jerk.
Song Anchen drank his cup of coffee, his face expressionless. Blue Mountain coffee perfectly combined the unique acidity, bitterness, sweetness, and mellowness of coffee, resulting in a strong and elegant taste. It was fragrant, smooth, and mellow in his throat. This sort of feeling would always calm his frustrated heart down. He had fallen in love with coffee the year after she left. In that one year, he had learned how to smoke and drink. He kept telling himself that there was a future for the two of them. After smoking for one year, he could not give it up; He had drunk alcohol till he ruined his stomach and was almost unable to stand up again. Why did he have to persevere even when she chose to give up? Was her feelings for him a figment of his imagination or did she not love him enough? After he had almost died, he managed to finally pick himself up and use five years to adjust his life. He used five years to forget all his memories about her.
But the five years he had used to forget her was nothing compared to Uncle Ye’s one sentence.
Anchen, Yisheng is returning today.
He had planned his whole life out, and it had changed dramatically because of this one sentence. She had returned and implanted his fragile heart into his body again. However, he was unable to repair and manage the heart that had once been abandoned by her.
His persistence had been completely shattered to the point of no return in the six years she had disappeared.
