The Best Of You (English Ver.) - Chapter 30
Shen Nianshen’s body stiffened and turned around, he saw Sun Tiantian who was standing behind him, looking at him with a smile on her face.
Shen Nianshen looked at her, “Why are you here? Didn’t I tell you, you don’t have to come here?”
Sun Tiantian smiled and said, “Of course I have to come. I miss you.”
She wrapped her arm around Shen Nianshen’s waist, looking at the young man with a smile.
The two of them looked at each other for some time. Shen Nianshen smiled eventually, he raised his hand and stroked Sun Tiantian’s head, “Have you eaten?”
Sun Tiantian shook her head, “Not yet.”
She was out early in the morning and her mother hadn’t prepared breakfast yet, but she wouldn’t wait any longer and left first.
When she went out, she could still hear her mother shouting angrily behind her back, “My daughter has all grown up, I can’t ask her to stay.”
Shen Nianshen looked at her and said, “Then, you just eat here, will you?”
Sun Tiantian nodded right away, “Of course!”
“It’s just not much food here. If you’re not full, I’ll take you out to eat.”
“No, let’s just eat at home.” Sun Tiantian grabbed Shen Nianshen’s arm, she stuck her head forward and glanced at the plain egg noodles he was cooking in the pot.
Shen Nianshen said, “Grandma can’t eat spicy food. So, I just cook plain food for her.”
Sun Tiantian laughed and said, “I’d love whatever you cook.”
As Shen Nianshen prepared the breakfast, Sun Tiantian obediently stood by his side and held his hand. They both chatted together.
Grandmother, who was sitting in the living room outside, suddenly heard Sun Tiantian’s cheerful laughter from the kitchen.
She was a little curious, what were these two people talking about that they were so happy.
She got up from the sofa and went to look into the kitchen.
As a result, when she had just walked up to the kitchen door, she was startled. Her grandson was kissing a girl!
Her grandson, who had never been in a relationship with any girl since childhood, was able to kiss a girl. Grandmother was shocked, but also very excited. She was so excited, her heart wanted to jump out of her throat. Afraid that the youths would feel embarrassed if they saw her, she immediately hid behind a wall.
After a while, after calming the excitement in her heart, she silently poked her head from behind the wall.
Shen Nianshen just kissed Sun Tiantian’s forehead earlier, and now they were chatting happily.
Shen Nianshen had finished cooking the noodles, so he put the scrambled eggs into Grandmother’s and Sun Tiantian’s bowl.
“Where is yours?” Sun Tiantian was displeased. Thus, she took her chopsticks and divided the eggs from her bowl in half. She gave it to Shen Nianshen, “Let’s eat together.”
Shen Nianshen looked at her, there was a warm smile in his eyes.
When they came out of the kitchen, Grandmother was already sitting at the dining table. The old woman smiled, the look of joy could not be hidden from her face.
“Grandma, food is ready!” Sun Tiantian appeared radiantly, she came out of the kitchen with a bowl of noodles for Grandmother and placed it happily in front of her.
The old lady swiftly grabbed Sun Tiantian’s hand and patted her hand gently, “Good girl, you too sit and eat.”
“Thank you, Grandma.” Sun Tiantian smiled before settling herself on the table.
After Sun Tiantian sat down, Shen Nianshen handed her the chopsticks and whispered, “Be careful, it’s still hot.”
“Hmm, I know.” Sun Tiantian nodded obediently, took out her chopsticks, and stirred the noodles.
They both sat side by side and looked very affectionate.
The grandmother who sat across them continued to stare at them. Happiness was welling up increasingly from the bottom of her heart. The more she looked at the two kids, the more she felt that they were really well-suited.
Grandmother really liked Sun Tiantian. Every time she saw the girl’s smile, it was as if people’s moods could be infected by her smile and became happy.
Her Ah Nian has been suffering since he was a child, usually, he was very serious and he could only be seen laughs twice at the most in a year. A girl like Sun Tiantian was the best for him.
Seeing a pair of young people who were so affectionate, a relieved smile appeared on grandmother’s face.
Shen Nianshen actually wanted to lower his head to eat, but somehow sensing a gaze falling on him. He looked up and met the eyes of his smiling grandmother.
Shen Nianshen was stunned and asked, “Grandma, are you okay?”
As soon as Shen Nianshen spoke, grandmother glared at him at once, “Darn you, last night when I asked you about Sun Tiantian, why didn’t you tell me about your relationship with Tiantian?”
Shen Nianshen, “…”
Sun Tiantian, who heard it, turned to Shen Nianshen, “You haven’t told Grandma?”
Shen Nianshen, “…”
After finishing breakfast, Shen Nianshen took Sun Tiantian into his room.
He closed the door and turned around, he saw Sun Tiantian clenched her lips and stared at him angrily.
“Tiantian …” Shen Nianshen unconsciously grabbed Sun Tiantian’s hand but Sun Tiantian pulled her hand, and looked at him as she asked, “Why didn’t you tell Grandma that we were dating?”
Shen Nianshen stared at her deeply, speechless for a moment.
Sun Tiantian, who saw Shen Nianshen did not answer her question, felt very uncomfortable, “Do you want to back away?”
“No.” Shen Nianshen answered without hesitation.
When Sun Tiantian heard it, she was stunned for a moment before heaving a sigh of relief. She walked up to Shen Nianshen, embraced him and leaned gently in his arms.
Shen Nianshen hugged her gently, the two of them hugged each other in silence for some time.
After a while, Sun Tiantian revealed her heart and whispered, “Somehow, sometimes I feel like I can’t guess what you’re thinking. I feel like you have a lot of secrets.”
Shen Nianshen heard this, and his body stiffened.
Sun Tiantian lifted her head from Shen Nianshen’s embrace and looked at the young man seriously, “You have nothing to hide from me, right?”
Shen Nianshen stared intently into those eyes, pausing for a moment before saying, “Nothing.”
Only then did Sun Tiantian smile, “That’s good.” Then, she said seriously, “But if there is something that makes you feel unhappy, you have to tell me and share with me as well. I don’t want to see you sad.”
She remembered her video call with Shen Nianshen last night, Shen Nianshen stared at the side for a few minutes. She didn’t know what he was thinking, but Sun Tiantian knew that Shen Nianshen must be very sad.
These words of comfort from Sun Tiantian were like warm sunshine shining on Shen Nianshen’s heart. Unconsciously he hugged her tighter. After a while, he said softly, “Tiantian, thank you for coming into my life.”
For the first time, he felt that life could also be soo beautiful.
Sun Tiantian raised her head and smiled sweetly, “Thank you too.”
Shen Nianshen saw the beautiful smile on Sun Tiantian’s face, he couldn’t help but smile too.
“Shen Nianshen, let’s find a place to see.” Last night, Shen Nianshen was very unhappy. Sun Tiantian wanted to let him relax more.
“Where do you want to go? Moreover, today happens to be New Year’s Day. Going anywhere is bound to be very busy.”
Sun Tiantian laughed, “I’ve prepared it from the start!”
She lowered her head and took out two tickets from her bag, “Tadaaa…!!”
Shen Nianshen couldn’t help but laugh, picked up the ticket, and looked at it, “Mingyue Mountain Resort?”
“That’s right!” Sun Tiantian said happily, “I heard that it is snowing on Mount Mingyue. We can go there to see the snow, it must be very beautiful!”
Shen Nianshen had never seen a scenery of snow on a mountain, but the first thought that crossed his mind was, “It must be very cold on top of the mountain, right? You just recovered from a cold.”
Sun Tiantian said, “Don’t worry! I’m dressed very thickly!” After saying that, she opened the collar of her jacket, “Look, I’m dressed very thickly. There are three layers of clothes inside!”
Sun Tiantian had thought about it last night. Today she was going to take Shen Nianshen to the resort, so she was dressed heavily when she left the house this morning.
“I also carried a hat, mask, and gloves.” She said as she pulled out the contents of her backpack. It was equipped with heating equipment, including the mask that Shen Nianshen bought for her some times ago, as well as several packets of snacks.
Shen Nianshen looked at it and couldn’t help but laugh again, “It turns out that you have prepared everything from the start.”
“Yeah, right! You hurry up and pack up, we have to go immediately.” Sun Tiantian said as she pushed Shen Nianshen towards the wardrobe.
Shen Nianshen was helpless, he turned his head and found Sun Tiantian staring and blinking at him.
“Quick, change your clothes.”
Shen Nianshen was so helpless, “You go out first.”
Sun Tiantian was stunned for a few seconds, then reacted and snorted, “As I’ve never seen it before.”
Back in the locker room at the back of the basketball court at that time, she had almost seen it all. Hmph!
Shen Nianshen was speechless, he grabbed Sun Tiantian’s shoulders from behind and pushed her out of the room, “Good girl, just wait outside. I still have to change my pants.”
Sun Tiantian heard that Shen Nianshen was going to change his pants, she giggled while covering her mouth. She turned around and said, “Shen Nianshen, you really are a shy boy.”
Shen Nianshen reached out and tapped Sun Tiantian’s forehead while laughing, “Don’t be cheeky.”
He pushed Sun Tiantian up to the door, “Be a good girl and wait for me.”
Sun Tiantian straightened up and suddenly raised her hand and gave a military salute, “Yes, Sir!”
Shen Nianshen, “…” This girl was acting up again?
He shook his head and closed the door.
Shen Nianshen was changing inside and Sun Tiantian called home to say that today she is going to the resort.
Mrs. Sun asked over the phone, “Going to the resort? With who? With your boyfriend?”
Sun Tiantian nodded, “Yes, Mom. We are going to go see the snow scenery on the mountain. Yesterday I saw there were two tickets in brother’s study. He didn’t want it, so I took them.”
“Seeing the snow scenery? Doesn’t it mean staying overnight?”
Sun Tiantian said honestly, “It should be.”
Mrs. Sun was silent for a few seconds before saying, “Then, this is your first time going out with a boy, you should take care of yourself more. After all, you’ve only been dating for a short time. I trust you.”
“I understand, Mom.” Sun Tiantian smiled, thinking that her family was really very innocent. The young man just wanted to change his pants and he threw her out of the room, so why should they think so much.
“Okay, I will call you tonight.”
“Okay, Mom.” After a moment, she immediately added, “Mom, please don’t tell this to brother. He’s always getting into my business.”
Mrs. Sun smiled as she covered her mouth, “I know.”
Shen Nianshen finished changing his clothes quickly, he was carrying a black backpack and a pink backpack belong to Sun Tiantian in his hands.
Sun Tiantian was sitting on the sofa and chatting with grandmother.
When she saw her grandson came out, grandmother raised her head with a smile, “Tiantian said you two are going to go to the resort, you have to take good care of Tiantian.”
Shen Nianshen nodded, “Of course.”
While saying that, he placed the two backpacks on the sofa. He opened Sun Tiantian’s pink backpack and took out a hat and scarf from the inside, “Come on, put it on first.”
Sun Tiantian got up from the sofa and approached Shen Nianshen obediently.
It was a pink hat, a very cute wool hat. There are two balls hanging on either side.
Shen Nianshen put it on Sun Tiantian, then took out the scarf and carefully wrapped the girl’s neck. And not forgetting to put on the gloves, “Give me your hand.”
Sun Tiantian obediently stretched out her hand, the corners of her lips raised.
Shen Nianshen lowered his head and helped Sun Tiantian put on gloves, he then said to his grandmother, “Grandma, I might come home late tonight. You take good care of yourself at home.”
Sun Tiantian, “…”
She grabbed Shen Nianshen’s hand, “We aren’t coming home tonight, I want to stay overnight on the top of the mountain.”
Shen Nianshen, “…”
It took two hours from the urban area to Mingyue Mountain Resort. By the time they arrived at the place, it was already 12 noon.
Apart from the entrance ticket, Sun Tiantian also got a hotel voucher from her brother. After arriving, she immediately took Shen Nianshen to check-in.
Shen Nianshen took out his ID card, “Two rooms, please.”
Sun Tiantian’s eyes widened, “What two rooms, just one room!”
After that, she handed her own ID card and emphasized to the front desk staff, “Sir, one room please.”
Shen Nianshen, “….. Sun Tiantian.”
Sun Tiantian sneered, “I don’t want to sleep alone!”
Shen Nianshen, “…”
Sun Tiantian hugged Shen Nianshen’s arm and said softly, she looked at Shen Nianshen pitifully, “I’m scared, I want to sleep with you. May I?”
Shen Nianshen raised a hand to rub his temples and said to the front desk staff, “Standard room with two beds, please.”
Sun Tiantian, “…..”
