The Best Of You (English Ver.) - Chapter 26
Sun Tiantian was a little curious, and without waiting for Shen Nianshen’s approval, she stretched out a finger and touched Shen Nian Shen’s stomach through his clothes. His abdominal muscles were tight, Sun Tiantian’s soft fingers felt like stabbing something hard.
Shen Nianshen didn’t know that Sun Tiantian was so naughty, he raised his hand to hold her finger. There was a smile in his eyes, with an affectionate tone and helplessness he said, “Don’t be naughty.”
Sun Tiantian laughed, “I’m not naughty.”
Shen Nianshen let go of her finger and said, “Wait for me for two minutes, I’ll dry my hair first.”
Water was still dripping from Shen Nianshen’s hair. All necessary items were available in this waiting room. Shen Nianshen walked to a storage cabinet and found a hairdryer in it.
Sun Tiantian saw that Shen Nianshen was going to dry his hair, she rushed over to him, took the hairdryer from his hand, and said happily, “I’ll help you dry your hair.”
Shen Nianshen helplessly said, “Don’t be silly, I’ll just dry it a little. After that, we still have to go to the hospital.”
“Let me do it.” Sun Tiantian refused to return the hairdryer. She plugged it into the socket on the wall, then moved a stool, took off her shoes and climbed onto it.
Shen Nianshen was too tall, she had to stand taller than him. The stool was also a bit high. Luckily the hairdryer’s cord was quite long.
She adjusted the power on the hairdryer, and then gently drying Shen Nianshen’s hair. Her fingers ran through the young man’s hair, “Are you comfortable?”
Sun Tiantian climbed onto a stool to dry his hair, Shen Nianshen felt cute about it but also helpless, he could only hold her waist, “Slowly, don’t fall.”
“You’re holding me, so I won’t fall.” Sun Tiantian was focusing on drying Shen Nianshen’s hair.
Shen Nianshen’s hair was short, it only takes a while to dry it enough.
Sun Tiantian turned off the hairdryer, feeling satisfied with her masterpiece. She stared at Shen Nianshen for a long time, then nodded proudly, “I made you so handsome.”
“Come on, hurry get down.” Shen Nianshen shook his head, took the hairdryer from Sun Tiantian’s hand, turned to unplug the cable, and put it back in the cabinet. When he turned back, he saw Sun Tiantian still standing on the stool, “What’s the matter?”
Sun Tiantian spread out her arms playfully and said in a spoiled tone, “Carry me.”
Shen Nianshen couldn’t resist her, he walked over and carried her down, “Sun Tiantian, you just like a little child.”
Sun Tiantian smiled and wrapped her arms around Shen Nianshen’s neck and her legs around his waist. Her entire body was completely clung to Shen Nianshen’s body.
Shen Nianshen held her with both hands, seeing Sun Tiantian looking at him with a smile on her face and not intending to get down at all, he was utterly helpless, “Don’t want to get down?”
“Don’t want to get down.” Sun Tiantian did not let go of her hands from Shen Nianshen’s neck, her legs were also tightly clamped. She was staring at Shen Nianshen without blinking. Shen Nianshen was also looking back at her, the two of them staring at each other without a word.
The air seemed to freeze at that moment. Shen Nianshen stared at Sun Tiantian for a long time, as if there was some magical power there. The gaze in his eyes slowly went down and fell on Sun Tiantian’s lips. The pink lips were so soft and make him want to kiss them, really want to feel it.
Shen Nianshen stared fixedly at her, unable to turn his gaze away. His throat moved slightly, there was an inexplicable itching feeling in his heart. The atmosphere suddenly became a little intimate.
Sun Tiantian saw Shen Nianshen’s gaze fixed on her lips, she was starting to feel a little nervous. But rather than being tensed, she felt more of hope.
She and Shen Nianshen have been dating for almost half a month, Shen Nianshen has never kissed her even once. She didn’t know whether all couples were like that or it was only them.
She wanted to be kissed by Shen Nianshen. She didn’t know how it feels to be kissed. But after a long wait, Shen Nianshen still didn’t kiss her.
Instead, Shen Nianshen got her down and stroked her head, “Let’s go.”
After the words fell, he turned around and took his black jacket on the sofa and put it on.
When Shen Nianshen finished putting on the jacket, he went to get Sun Tiantian’s bag and cellphone on the coffee table, then turned around to grab Sun Tiantian’s hand, “Come on, let’s go eat first.”
Sun Tiantian, who was being held up by Shen Nianshen, followed suit with a frown. You idiot, why didn’t you kiss me just now!
Shouldn’t men be more active?
Sun Tiantian was not very happy. While they were eating, she did not really want to respond to Shen Nianshen, but she was too shy to explain. She couldn’t possibly say, that she wasn’t happy because Shen Nianshen didn’t kiss her, could she?
It was embarrassing just to think about it.
Shen Nianshen knew what made Sun Tiantian upset, but he didn’t speak. While eating, he just silently added the dishes to Sun Tiantian’s bowl. When he saw the dishes in her bowl were gone, he would add them more.
He took a bowl of hot tomato soup and egg and put it in front of Sun Tiantian, “It’s cold outside, drink this warm soup.”
Sun Tiantian’s anger came swiftly and subsided rapidly as well. Seeing Shen Nianshen continuing to add the dishes for her so delicately, she was happy again.
She was sitting next to Shen Nianshen and said happily while holding his arm, “Tomorrow is Christmas Eve, should we go somewhere?”
Shen Nianshen looked at her, “Where do you want to go?”
“Tomorrow’s Christmas Eve, the cinema will be busy.” Sun Tiantian thought about it for a while.
Suddenly turned to the side and looked at Shen Nianshen, “How about tomorrow we take a walk on the main road? Tomorrow night will be really festive.”
Shen Nianshen looked at her, “Okay. If you want to go there, then we will be there.”
Sun Tiantian couldn’t help hugging Shen Nianshen’s arm tighter, leaning her head on his shoulders, “Shen Nianshen, you are really good to me.”
After finishing eating, Shen Nianshen took Sun Tiantian to the hospital for an injection. Along the way there, Sun Tiantian started to acting up.
She took Shen Nianshen’s hand and begged him, “Can I not get the injection? Let’s just buy some medicine.”
Shen Nianshen replied, “You’ve been taking the medicines for several days, it doesn’t have any effect at all.”
Even until now, her voice was still muffled, and the mucus flew down so often. Sun Tiantian grumbled, “But, I don’t want to get an injection.”
When she spoke, the snot came out again, and she hastily sucked it up. Shen Nianshen took out a packet of tissue from his jacket pocket, took a sheet, and pinched Sun Tiantian’s nose, “Let it out.”
Sun Tiantian obediently blew out her nose. Shen Nianshen wiped Sun Tiantian’s nose and threw the tissue in a trash bin. He said, “It’s already that bad and you still don’t want the injection. It might be snowing in two days, it will be even colder.”
Sun Tiantian couldn’t fight Shen Nianshen, so she went to the hospital to get an injection. Since childhood, she was afraid of injection, so when she was discharged from the hospital, she continued to caress her buttock. Shen Nianshen looked at her anxiously, “Does it hurt so bad?”
Sun Tiantian snorted unhappily, “Why don’t you try the injection and feel it for yourself.”
Her sulking face was so cute and adorable, Shen Nianshen couldn’t help smiling and said, “But the person who kicked the blanket in the middle of the night and catches a cold is not me.”
Sun Tiantian was annoyed, unable to stop herself from pinching Shen Nianshen’s waist.
Shen Nianshen immediately grabbed her hand and led her out of the hospital. He walked over, saying, “It’s too cold. Let’s go back to campus. Go back to your room and rest. Remember to take your medicine first.”
Sun Tiantian nodded, “And you? Where are you going?”
Shen Nianshen replied, “I’ll return to the dormitory as well, I have unfinished business.”
Shen Nianshen escorted Sun Tiantian to the front of her dormitory and reminded her to take the medicine. After being scolded by Sun Tiantian for being nagging, he left helplessly.
Tomorrow happens to be Thursday, Thursday afternoon was the school holiday as usual. Because right on Christmas Eve, Shen Nianshen went to the supermarket to buy pencils and saw many people picking apples.
In fact, he had never celebrated a foreign holiday like this. From many festivals in China, he likes the Mid-Autumn Festival and the Spring Festival the most. He liked the reunited meaning of them, but they were also very contradictory.
Every time he met the two festivals, his heartfelt really gloomy. Everyone gathered together with their families but he only has a grandmother, without father and mother. But now he had someone else, he has Tiantian to add.
When he thought of Sun Tiantian, the feeling of loneliness in his heart disappeared instantly, replaced by a warm feeling. There were many people who bought apples, he also bought two. He chose the two largest and red apples.
The campus was closed every Thursday afternoon, but teaching and learning classes were still normal in the morning. When Sun Tiantian and Cheng Duo were holding hands leaving for their class, Sun Tiantian saw Shen Nianshen standing outside the dormitory waiting for her.
As soon as Sun Tiantian saw Shen Nianshen, she ran over to him happily, “Why are you here?”
Shen Nianshen smiled and said, “I’ve no class in the first hour. Here, I bought you something.”
While saying that, he passed the gift bag into Sun Tiantian’s hand. Sun Tiantian opened it and looked in, there were two big red apples and a lot of candy rabbits. “Ah, when did you buy it?” Sun Tiantian was so happy, emotional, and very excited.
Shen Nianshen, “Yesterday. Do you like it?”
“Like it, love it!” Sun Tiantian grabbed Shen Nianshen’s arm tightly, “Thank you.”
Shen Nianshen saw Sun Tiantian’s happy face, his mood was uplifted. He looked at her and said, “That’s good if you like it.”
He asked again, “This afternoon is off, when will we go out?”
Sun Tiantian replied, “I can go any time. Just look at yours. Do whatever you need to do, and when you finished, then we will go.”
“How about 4:30 pm? We’ll take a taxi to town, have dinner there and then take a walk at the night market.” Shen Nianshen had not finished the job he had previously received, he wanted to finish it immediately so that he would quickly receive his salary. Sun Tiantian nodded, “It’s fine.”
“Hmm, then I’ll call you later.”
Sun Tiantian has two classes in the morning. After classes, she returned to her dormitory to wait. She knew Shen Nianshen was busy, and she didn’t want to bother him. So, she obediently waited while drawing her comics in the dorm.
Maybe because she’s been dating lately, her teenage girl’s heart was hopping about happily. The comics she drew were really sweet too. After drawing on her comic until 12 p.m., the girls went to the cafeteria to have lunch together.
They returned to the dorms after eating, they played and chatted until 1:00 p.m., then got sleepy and went into bed to take a nap.
Sun Tiantian slept until past 4 p.m. and woke up only when Shen Nianshen called her.
Shen Nianshen’s low voice was heard, “I am in front of your dormitory, come out now.”
Sun Tiantian said yes, she wanted to enjoy spending Christmas Eve with Shen Nianshen, she was really excited, “I’ll be out soon.”
“Remember to dress more, it might snow tonight.”
These two days Sun Tiantian was dressed so thickly, she wrapped herself three layers up and down like a bear.
As she exited the dormitory door, she saw Shen Nianshen standing under a big tree. She ran happily and hugged Shen Nianshen from behind, startling him, “Boo!”
Shen Nianshen looked back and smiled helplessly, touching Sun Tiantian’s nose, “How childish you are.”
Sun Tiantian chuckled and hugged his arm, “Let’s go.”
It would need almost two hours by the subway to reach the city area. Shen Nianshen didn’t want Sun Tiantian being squeezed on the train, so he initially chose to take a taxi.
Sun Tiantian said, “Let’s just take the train. My cold is still not cured, take a taxi might get me a headache.”
While speaking, she pulled Shen Nianshen to the subway station. Once they entered the subway, it was full of people. It could be said that there was a sea of people and the air felt stuffy.
Shen Nianshen frowned, trying his best to pull Sun Tiantian out to get a taxi. But before having the chance to do so, Sun Tiantian suddenly hugged his hands and smiled, “Shen Nianshen, it’s so warm here, it feels like there is a natural heating.”
Shen Nianshen, “…”
There were a lot of people on the subway. There was no empty seat, even the aisle was full of people. Shen Nianshen was afraid of Sun Tiantian being pushed by others, so he stood firmly behind her, hugged Sun Tiantian tightly with his left hand, and held the train’s grip ring in his right hand.
He used his body to separate Sun Tiantian from the crowd behind him.
Sun Tiantian was completely protected by Shen Nianshen, there was no one could touch or push her. Sun Tiantian looked up and stared at Shen Nianshen, suddenly feeling very blissful and warmth in her heart.
This kind of happiness was different from that given by his father, mother, and brother. She has a kind feeling of protection.
She looked at Shen Nianshen who was keeping her so tightly in his arms, she made a decision in her heart: this man, no matter his future would be rich or poor, she would still marry him. Even if this man was poor and destitute, she was willing to live a hard life with him.
