The Best Of You (English Ver.) - Chapter 34
After the New Year holiday, almost all students on the campus began to enter the intense exam preparation stage.
The exams at Sun Tiantian’s faculty were a little more relaxed, because of that she could accompany Shen Nianshen to the library every day. Even though it doesn’t look like she’s working hard, she had learned everything she needed to learn. When the culture class exam occurred, she did it easily.
On January 13th, Sun Tiantian finished her general English class. Just when she came out of the classroom, she heard many of her classmates complaining.
“Oh no, it’s not good. I’ll definitely fail my English this time, I answered carelessly.”
“I really pray the lecturer will show great compassion, give me a score of 60 to pass!”
“If you don’t pass, what do you do?”
“It can’t be helped, I have to wait for the next semester for remedial.”
Cheng Duo took Sun Tiantian’s hand and asked her as they walked out of the teaching building, “Can you do the test?”
Sun Tiantian was a little proud, “It considered not bad, before the exam Ah Nian forced me to study.”
“Ck ck ck, having a nerdy boyfriend is really something. Look at you now.”
Sun Tiantian laughed and said proudly but also humbly, “Not bad.”
Cheng Duo pinched Tiantian’s face and asked again with a smile, “When will you go home?”
After they finished their exam, they were into the semester holiday.
Sun Tiantian said, “I want to wait for Ah Nian.”
Cheng Duo, “Looks like they will finish their exams next week.”
“I know, so I have to accompany him on campus.” As she spoke, Sun Tiantian smiled and nudged Cheng Duo, “How about you? Won’t you wait for Xu Li?”
Cheng Duo was a little awkward and said shyly, “I want to wait for him too.”
After Sun Tiantian’s exam ended, the following days were to accompany Shen Nianshen to the library.
Shen Nianshen was studying on the opposite side, and Sun Tiantian was drawing on this side. Otherwise, she would either be on her cell phone or leaning on the table silently looking at Shen Nianshen.
At this moment, the girl opposite him was already staring at him absentmindedly for half an hour. Shen Nianshen couldn’t take it anymore, he raised his head and stretched out his hand. He stroked her head gently, “No more staring.”
Sun Tiantian smiled, supported her cheek with her hands, and looked at Shen Nianshen with a cute smile, “Ah Nian, you are so handsome.”
Shen Nianshen couldn’t help smiling and said affectionately, “Silly girl.”
Sun Tiantian chuckled, and moved over to sit next to Shen Nianshen. Her hands were wrapped around the young man’s hand and whispered in his ear, “Aren’t you hungry?”
Shen Nianshen looked at the time and it was only at 11 before noon, he asked, “Are you hungry already?”
Sun Tiantian nodded, “A little.” Then she added, “You just read your book here, I’ll go buy some food. Then we’ll have a quick meal on the rooftop.”
Shen Nianshen, “I’ll go with you.”
While talking, he had started tidying up his things already.
Sun Tiantian was busy holding his back, “No, you don’t have to. You continue your study for a little while, it’s still morning after all. I’ll be back soon.” After speaking, Sun Tiantian took her bag and ran outside.
Shen Nianshen’s faculty was the last to have the days off, the students from other faculties had already taken off. Those who have to go home have already gone home, this campus was now empty. Even the cafeteria was closed.
Sun Tiantian ran out to buy some food and buying the fried rice at the restaurant she and Shen Nianshen both liked.
The campus was on holiday now, the restaurant business was quiet, of course. When the owner saw Sun Tiantian, she smiled as she asked, “Tiantian, why are you alone? Where’s your boyfriend?”
Sun Tiantian smiled, “He’s studying at the library.”
“Wow, your boyfriend loves studying.”
Sun Tiantian looked proud, “Of course, Ah Nian is really great. Every year he gets a scholarship.”
“Really? I can’t see it.” The owner was a little surprised. Such a handsome boy, turned out to be so good at lessons?
Sun Tiantian smiled triumphantly, “Auntie, I want two servings of beef rice.”
“Eh, you don’t eat the egg-fried rice today?”
Sun Tiantian smiled, “We can’t always eat that.” After thinking for a while and fearing that Shen Nianshen might not be full enough, she added, “Give some extra meat, please.”
“One with extra meat or two with extra meat?”
Sun Tiantian thought. If only one portion with extra meat, Ah Nian would definitely share his food with her. She said, “Two servings with extra meat, just equalize it.”
“Okay, I’ll go and tell the chef.” The owner smiled and walked toward the inner kitchen.
After a while, Sun Tiantian brought the package of beef rice. While passing the school supermarket, she also bought two boxes of yogurt and a box of mint candy.
She brought the lunches happily to the library.
When she got to the library, it was 11:40 a.m.
Because the campus was on holiday, there were hardly any people in the library.
Shen Nianshen was still reading a book there. Sun Tiantian came over and placed the lunch box on the table. She smiled sweetly and said, “Your Majesty, please eat your lunch.”
Shen Nianshen looked up, unable to hold back his laughter, “If I am Your Majesty, what are you?”
Sun Tiantian chuckled and sat beside Shen Nianshen, “I am a little servant, especially in services of Your Majesty the Emperor.”
Shen Nianshen stroked Sun Tiantian’s head with a smile, “You silly girl.”
Sun Tiantian pushed the lunch box in front of Shen Nianshen and whispered, “Can we go to eat first? It’s winter now, the food gets cold quickly. When it’s cold, it’s not good anymore.
After that, he brought the lunch box and the yogurt and walked out.
“Wait for me!” Sun Tiantian shouted in a low voice, picked up the hot water flask on the table, and ran to catch Shen Nianshen up.
After leaving the study room, Shen Nianshen carried the lunches in one hand and held Sun Tiantian with his other hand.
Sun Tiantian held a flask in one hand and reached out with the other to hold Shen Nianshen’s hand.
Shen Nianshen took Sun Tiantian’s hand and led her up to the rooftop.
Sun Tiantian said as she walked, “I bought beef rice today. The owner’s aunt was very kind, she even gave some extra meat.”
Arriving at the rooftop and opening the lunch box, Shen Nianshen could only glance at Sun Tiantian, “Are you sure she’s the one who gave the extra meat and it wasn’t you who asked for it?”
Sun Tiantian groaned, having a boyfriend who was too smart was not always a good thing. Nothing can be hidden from him.
She hugged Shen Nianshen’s arm and leaned her head on the young man’s shoulder, acting meekly and spoiled, “I’m just afraid you might starve.”
Shen Nianshen lowered his head slightly and stared fixedly at the girl for a few moments. But in the end, he still smiled and kissed Sun Tiantian on the forehead, “Silly girl.”
Sun Tiantian lifted her head off Shen Nianshen’s shoulder and smiled. She took out the chopsticks, separated them, and handed them to Shen Nianshen, “Hurry up and eat, it’s getting cold.”
Shen Nianshen took over the chopsticks, but didn’t move and stared at Sun Tiantian for a moment.
Sun Tiantian saw Shen Nianshen stared at her, she blinked, “What’s wrong?”
Shen Nianshen looked at her deeply and suddenly said seriously, “It’s been troubling you.”
Sun Tiantian was stunned, she finally realized that Shen Nianshen was talking about buying the lunch. Sun Tiantian immediately smiled until her eyes narrowed and said jokingly, “Of course, it’s winter now, to go out and buy some food is very difficult.” As she spoke, her face approached Shen Nianshen and said, “So in the future, you have to be nicer to me, you may not bully me.”
Shen Nianshen smiled and pecked on Sun Tiantian’s lips, “I won’t.”
How could he have the heart to oppress this girl, just loving her was not enough he felt.
The two of them sat on the roof bench while having a sweet lunch.
The cold wind on the roof was so cold that Sun Tiantian felt a little chilled. After almost finished eating, she just said, “Shen Nianshen, I think we’re a little stupid.”
Shen Nianshen was surprised and looked at her, “Why?”
Sun Tiantian, “… why are we eating on the roof in the middle of winter?”
Shen Nianshen, “…”
Sun Tiantian shrank her neck and quickly huddled herself in Shen Nianshen’s embrace, “It’s so cold.”
Shen Nianshen laughed at Sun Tiantian’s act, lowering his head to look at her, “Sun Tiantian, you are so silly.”
Sun Tiantian looked up, “It’s really really cold here, let’s just go downstairs.”
“Okay, let’s go down.” He smiled but didn’t move. His eyes fell on a speck of white rice at the corner of Sun Tiantian’s lips, unable to stop himself from reaching out to help her pick up the rice while staring fondly, “You’ve been this big, but still eating so messy.”
Sun Tiantian was stunned and touched her chin subconsciously, “Is it?”
Shen Nianshen smiled, “There’s nothing anymore.”
He took a tissue to wipe his hands, then packed the rest of their lunch into a bag and took Sun Tiantian downstairs.
Shen Nianshen was afraid Sun Tiantian might catch a cold. Down from the top floor, he didn’t continue his study right away. He took Sun Tiantian outside the campus to buy a box of cold medicine.
Sun Tiantian followed behind him, whispering, “I don’t have the flu.”
“For prevention.” Shen Nianshen paid at the cashier, asking the guard, “Is there a cup of hot water?”
The cashier replied, “There, over there. You take it yourself.”
Shen Nianshen glanced in the direction the cashier pointed at, there was a water dispenser.
He took a disposable paper cup on top of the water dispenser, took out a pack of soluble cold medicine, and took out half a cup of hot water. Then he dissolved the medicine in hot water. He looked back and saw Sun Tiantian was standing at the pharmacy door.
He took the cup out and handed it to her, “Drink up.”
Sun Tiantian had a runny nose outside before, so she accepted and drank it obediently.
Shen Nianshen took out a packet of tissues from his jacket pocket, took out a sheet and wiped Sun Tiantian’s mouth. He then reached out to touch the girl’s face, “Is it cold?”
Shen Nianshen raised both his hands, examined Sun Tiantian’s forehead, and said, “In a while, I’ll take you back to your dorms. Then you soak your feet, and then lie in the blanket.”
Sun Tiantian widened her eyes, “You don’t want me to accompany you in the library anymore?”
Shen Nianshen, “I don’t want you to catch the flu.” His gaze stared deeply at Sun Tiantian and added, “I’ll be sad then.”
