The Best Of You (English Ver.) - Chapter 16
Sun Tiantian was suddenly caught by Shen Nianshen, which startled her.
She stared at him for a moment and asked, “Talk about what?”
“Let’s go somewhere else,” Shen Nianshen said. “this is not the place to talk.”
Sun Tiantian looked at him, pursed his lips, and thought, this man was extraordinary. He asked her not to disturb him a while ago, but now he came to her on his initiative.
She hesitated for a moment and returned to him what he had said to her intact. “Then, spit it quickly if you have anything to say. I’m very busy. I don’t have time to play with you.”
Shen Nianshen choked and nodded, “Okay.”
Sun Tiantian followed Shen Nianshen out of the basketball court and, Shen Nianshen asked, “Would you like to go to the coffee shop?”
“No, let’s go to the open space in front of the Building Qijiao, where we usually play roller-skate.”
The Building Qijiao was not far from the basketball court, and it took only a few minutes to reach it.
Shen Nianshen nodded and went with Sun Tiantian.
Sun Tiantian sat under the old locust tree and looked up at Shen Nianshen, “Just say what you want to say.”
Sun Tiantian’s attitude was indifferent, completely changed from the girl who used to smile all the time.
Shen Nianshen rubbed his eyebrows. Somehow, a word suddenly appeared in his mind: you can’t live by doing your own iniquity.
He sighed to himself and sat down next to Sun Tiantian.
Sun Tiantian moved aside.
Shen Nianshen, “…..What are you doing?”
Sun Tiantian raised her chin, and looked at the flooring in front of her, answered in a sour tone. “I have to keep my distance from you, avoiding you will say I’m bothering you again.”
Shen Nianshen: “…..”
This girl, such a vindictive?
Shen Nianshen didn’t speak for a long time., Sun Tiantian looked at him sideways. “What on earth you want to talk with me about? If you don’t tell me, I’ll go.”
As a matter of fact, Shen Nianshen himself didn’t know what to talk about. He suddenly panicked when he saw Sun Tiantian and Xie Xun leaning against each other.
He also remembered that Xu Li said that Xie Xun was chasing Sun Tiantian. He was afraid that if he didn’t do something, he would really regret it in the future.
So the moment Sun Tiantian passed by him, he couldn’t help but hold her.
He thought he could have peace of mind; after all, he never thought about falling in love, never wanted to be with a girl.
He did not expect to meet such a girl; her every expression and smile inadvertently broke into his heart.
In the past half month, he never stopped thinking about her even for a moment.
So, he surrendered.
After a moment of silence, he said, “Sun Tiantian, let’s try.”
A sudden sentence made Sun Tiantian’s heart tremble uncontrollably.
She turned sideways and looked at Shen Nianshen, in surprise.
“Don’t you hate me? “
Shen Nianshen, “When did I say I hate you?”
Sun Tiantian said, “Half a month ago, at the school gate, you asked me to come to an end for all of this, saying that you were too busy to play with me.”
Sun Tiantian was still very angry when she thought of that sentence. At that time, Shen Nianshen looked at her as if he were really looking at someone who was very annoying. He was angry.
It was the angry look in his eyes that completely put her out of her mind.
She admitted that she was sometimes unashamed and heartless, but she also has her self-esteem and her bottom line.
Since Shen Nianshen hates her so much, she would let go.
Shen Nianshen was really upset that night, but it wasn’t because of Sun Tiantian. He was annoyed with himself.
In the alley that day, every word that Lin Li said pierced his heart like a knife, cruel but irrefutable.
He and Sun Tiantian were indeed people from different worlds. He wanted to be with her, but he was afraid to be with her.
He was afraid that after she together with him, she would find that he was not as good as she thought. He was worried that she would eventually hate him and got tired of him.
He thought that if he cut off contact with her, he could let it go. But he didn’t think that he was used to seeing her every day, her bright smiling face and crooked eyes.
When she suddenly disappeared, as if the sunshine in his life also had gone, and he couldn’t stand it.
But he didn’t know how to explain what happened that night, and he didn’t want to show his inferiority side to her.
He was silent for a while, then finally said, “Sun Tiantian, I have never been in love, nor have I tried to get along with a girl, but I will try to be nice to you and give you everything I can give you. I will not let you be sad or aggrieved.”
He looked at Sun Tiantian, more seriously than ever before.
Sun Tiantian was a little confused, could we regard this as…. love confession?
Shen Nianshen confessed his love?
Was she dreaming?
The surprise came too sudden, and it was a bit hard to get used to it.
Sun Tiantian stared at Shen Nianshen for a long time and stuttered a little. “It means… you like me?”
Shen Nianshen nodded. “Yeah, I like you.”
There was a sudden ecstasy in Sun Tiantian’s heart, and she could hardly help to jump.
Just when she had given up completely, the person she liked suddenly told her that he also liked her.
Sun Tiantian felt like a dream, subconsciously pinching the palm of her hand, the pain came, and instantly woke up a little bit.
The heart was extremely happy, but the face pretended to be reserved, the voice was cold, said: “So we have to try when you said we try? Shen Nianshen, I’m a person, not a ball. You told me to stay away from you and kicked me away. Now that you regret it, you come back to me and say you want to try it with me. Why should I agree with you?”
Shen Nianshen was frozen.
After a long time, he laughed.
Also, how could he tell someone to go and come back as soon as he pleased?
After a moment of silence, he looked deeply at Sun Tiantian, and suddenly said, “I’ll chase you.”
Sun Tiantian froze, “What?”
Shen Nianshen said, “I’ll chase you, okay? Chase until you agree to be with me.”
Sun Tiantian stared at him blankly and did not speak for a long time.
She should have looked at the almanac when she went out today. Was this a good day that only happened once in a century?!
Shen Nianshen not only confessed to her but also wanted to chase her?!
Sun Tiantian felt like she was dreaming, and there was a voice in her heart shouting, “Agree with him!”
Another voice was advising, “Keep calm!”
She sat there motionless, took a long time to calm down, looked at Shen Nianshen, with a slight snort, and replied, “It depends on your performance.”
Shen Nianshen once again felt the meaning of ‘you can’t live by doing your own iniquity’, he nodded and said: “Okay.”
Then he asked, “Are you free tonight?”
Sun Tiantian, “What do you want?”
Shen Nianshen, “Can I treat you to dinner?”
Sun Tiantian was very happy at the bottom of her heart, but pretended to be calm and said, “I have an appointment with my roommate this evening. Let’s do it next time.”
Shen Nianshen: “…. All right.”
Sun Tiantian was so excited that she couldn’t wait to find her roommates and tell them that Shen Nianshen was going to chase her.
She stood up from the slate beside the flower bed and said to Shen Nianshen, “I’m going back to the basketball court. My roommates are still waiting for me for dinner.”
Shen Nianshen also stood up and said, “I’ll send you off.”
Sun Tiantian didn’t refuse, glanced at him, and then walked straight ahead.
Shen Nianshen followed and walked side by side with her.
“Are you free this Saturday?”
Shen Nianshen asked suddenly.
Sun Tiantian said, “This Saturday? No, I don’t. Our roller-skate club organized a camping event. We would be in the mountains on Saturdays and Sundays.”
Shen Nianshen: “…..”
The Qijiao Building was very close to the basketball court and within walking distance of a few minutes.
Her roommates were waiting for her. Sun Tiantian ran away from Shen Nianshen as soon as she saw them.
Cheng duo asked in a low voice, “How’s it going? What did you two talk about?”
Sun Tiantian winked at her quietly and gave a hint to her to talk later.
She looked back and said to Shen Nianshen, “I’ll go first.”
Shen Nianshen nodded and said, “I’ll send you a message later.”
As soon as the words came out, everyone on Shen Nianshen and Sun Tiantian side was frozen.
That cold Shen Nianshen, unexpectedly said he would send a message to a girl on his own initiative!
Sun Tiantian was happy but didn’t show it. With a faint hum, she took her roommates walked outside the school.
As soon as they arrived at the hot pot restaurant, as soon as the door of the private room was closed, the three roommates immediately surrounded Sun Tiantian. “Say it! What’s going on?! What does Shen Nianshen want to talk to you just now?!”
Sun Tiantian lay down on the table with her cheeks in her hands and smiled and said, “Shen Nianshen confessed to me.”
There was a moment of silence in the private room.
The girls all stared as if they heard something incredible.
Cheng Duo was the first to react, “Oh My God, really? Shen Nianshen confessed to you? Why does it sound so incredible?”
Sun Tiantian smiled and said, “I personally also thought it was incredible, but it was true. He admitted that he liked me.”
Xie Yan walked around the room twice, touched her chin, suddenly showed a very understanding expression, said, “This is a man! In the beginning, he was so cold. After you ignored him for half a month, finally know how important you are. “
Sun Tiantian nodded and agreed.
Cheng Dora opened her stool, sat next to Sun Tiantian, and asked, “You didn’t agree on him so soon, did you?”
“Of course not!”
“He can’t tell me to go and come back as he pleased,” Sun Tiantian said. “I’m not that easy.”
Cheng Duo grinned and did not believe in Sun Tiantian’s restraint at all. “It depends on how long you can endure.”
Sun Tiantian opened her eyes and said, “You don’t believe me? I’m really determining this time!”
Xie Yan laughed, sat opposite, and said, “Let’s take a guess how long it will take for Tiantian to fully surrender. I’ll say first, a week at the most.”
He Miao said, “I guess it’s about the same. It’s been two weeks at the most. Tiantian likes Shen Nianshen that much.”
Sun Tiantian was about to vomit blood. “Please, can you have a little faith in me?”
Cheng Duo laughed, “Come on. You? I think three days at the most, it may be hard to say about someone else, but please, this is Shen Nianshen, he is very handsome. If he touches you twice, you will lay down his arms and surrender. Don’t you believe me?”
Sun Tiantian held up a decision, “It can’t be so fast!”
Cheng Duo smiled and said, “Then let’s make a bet. If we lose, treat us dinner.”
“Treat, treat! You can eat whatever you want.”
When Shen Nianshen and Xu Li returned to the dormitory after dinner, after Xu Li heard that Shen Nianshen said he would chase Sun Tiantian, he laughed until his stomach can’t stand. “What is it called? When someone chased you, you made her go and talk cruelly to her. Did retribution time already come? Sh*t, this is killing me!”
Shen Nianshen, “…..”
“Oh, but I never thought that Tiantian very good in holding a grudge.”
Shen Nianshen sat at his desk, translated a piece of material in front of the computer, and casually asked, “Tiantian said that your roller-skate club is going camping this Saturday.”
“Wow, Tiantian? Even the nickname already changed? I thought previously you always called her Sun Tiantian?”
Xu Li watched the hustle and bustle and laughed again.
Shen Nianshen frowned and finally looked sideways at him. “You don’t want to pass the final exam anymore?”
Xu Li usually did not listen to lectures. His final exam depended on Shen Nianshen to give him sample questions; this sentence was simply his weakest point, immediately admitted, “Please don’t! My Helper God, I was wrong! I was wrong! If I laugh at you again, I will be a pig! I swear!”
Shen Nianshen looked at him and asked, “Are there many campers?”
“Quite many, there are eight people in our club, plus Tiantian’s three roommates, oh, and Xie Xun and his roommates.”
Shen Nianshen frowned and said, “Xie Xun? Why did he go?”
Ever since he knew that Xie Xun was chasing Sun Tiantian, this name was like a bomb for Shen Nianshen.
Sun Tiantian went camping, why did he go?
Xu Li: “Nonsense, he is chasing Tiantian. Tiantian wants to go camping; he certainly must go as well.”
Shen Nianshen, “…..”
Xu Li looked at him and said, “How do you feel? Do you finally feel the pressure from your rival in love?”
Shen Nianshen, “…..”
Xu Li looked at Shen Nianshen with a shriveled expression. He didn’t know what was going on. He really wanted to laugh. He asked him, “Would you like me to save a seat for this camping on Saturday?”
Shen Nianshen was in a bad mood, “Nonsense!”
Xu Li looked like a beggar, “I thought you were never going to take part in such boring activities? Why? You afraid your wife will be robbed by someone else this time?”
Shen Nianshen, “Xu Li, are you feel itchy?”
Xu Li, “…..”
Sun Tiantian lay in bed at night, too excited to sleep.
She was waiting for Shen Nianshen to send her a message, but she already waited for a long time. She angrily scored Shen Nianshen’s performance on the first day: Huh! Half a star and can’t be more!
At 10:30, she was so angry as she wanted to turn off the phone, but when she just moved her finger to the power button, Shen Nianshen suddenly called.
Sun Tiantian thought he would send a message on Wechat, but he called directly instead.
She stared at the caller ID for a long time, thinking about ringing a few more times before answering, otherwise, she looked as if she was looking forward to his call.
She waited and counted silently, finally got through slowly when the phone rang for the last time.
Shen Nianshen’s voice came softly from the other end of the phone, “Are you asleep?”
Sun Tiantian said, “Already prepare to sleep.”
She thought, he said, will send her a message later. She couldn’t believe he took until this time to call her.
Just thinking about it, Shen Nianshen voice came over again, “I sent you Wechat, but you seem to block me.”
Sun Tiantian, “….”
Shen Nianshen, “I also sent a text message, but you didn’t reply. Did you forget to remove me from the blocklist?”
Sun Tiantian, “…..”
