The Best Of You (English Ver.) - Chapter 37
Shen Nianshen took Sun Tiantian out from the small forest. Sun Tiantian was so embarrassed that she tightly hugged Shen Nianshen’s arm and buried her head there.
Shen Nianshen had never seen Sun Tiantian so embarrassed like that, unable to hold back his laughter and said, “Why are you so embarrassed?”
Sun Tiantian’s face, which was buried in Shen Nianshen’s arm, laughed in frustration. It was only after a while that she lifted her head and looked at Shen Nianshen with her flushed red face, “Tell me, how can you do this kind of thing?”
Shen Nianshen raised his eyebrows, the corners of his lips lifted and showed a sly smile, “What thing?”
Sun Tiantian was stunned and hit Shen Nianshen’s arm shyly, “Shen Nianshen, you are so mean. You knew it but you’re still asking.”
Shen Nianshen laughed and caught her hand, holding it firmly in his palm.
Sun Tiantian glared at him, Shen Nianshen smiled at her, hold her hand, and said softly, “Let’s go.”
Only then did Sun Tiantian smile again and the two of them walked while holding hands towards the dormitory.
Sun Tiantian’s entire brain was full of the scene that happened in the small forest earlier, there was excitement that was hard to say and shyly asked Shen Nianshen, “Did you secretly learned it?”
Shen Nianshen smiled deeply, “Learned it from whom?”
Sun Tiantian looked up and blinked, “From the TV.”
Otherwise, how come he suddenly become so proficient …
Shen Nianshen gave her a quick glance and smiled helplessly, “Does this kind of thing need to be learned?”
Sun Tiantian, “…”
Arriving at the door of the dormitory, Shen Nianshen gently rubbed her head and said, “Silly, that kind of thing can be learned by ourselves, right?”
Sun Tiantian, “…”
Shen Nianshen, “Get inside, pack up your stuff, tomorrow morning at 9 I’ll be here to pick you up. Then I’ll take you home.”
Sun Tiantian nodded, “Alright.”
Shen Nianshen, “Then I’ll go first.”
Sun Tiantian looked around them, making sure there was not a soul around, she then tiptoed and wrapped her arm around Shen Nianshen’s neck, “Kiss me first, just a moment.”
Shen Nianshen smiled, lowered his head, and gave a peck on her lips, “Is that alright?”
Sun Tiantian was very happy, she grinned widely and looked at Shen Nianshen, “You too, rest early.”
Shen Nianshen agreed, “I know.”
Sun Tiantian, “Good night.”
Shen Nianshen, “Good night.”
That night, Sun Tiantian slept extraordinarily soundly. She dreamed of kissing Shen Nianshen again. At the end of the kiss, her heart seemed ready to melt away.
The next morning at 9 am, Shen Nianshen came to the dormitory to pick up Sun Tiantian. Earlier he called Sun Tiantian, but the phone rang for a long time before being picked up, her voice was still sleepy, “Ah Nian …”
Shen Nianshen was stunned and asked softly, “Not wake up yet?”
On the other side, Sun Tiantian tried to get up from under her blanket and finally sat up with disheveled hair. She rubbed her eyes and said, “I’m awake.”
Shen Nianshen heard her waking up voice, he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, “Didn’t I tell you I’ll pick you up at 9?”
Sun Tiantian felt a little cold as she sat on the bed, and unable to stop herself from getting back into the blanket, “I already set the alarm, but as soon as the alarm rang, I turned it off right away.”
Shen Nianshen, “Have your things you’re going to take home have been packed up?”
Sun Tiantian shook her head and her voice was sad, “I was planning to pack it up this morning …”
Shen Nianshen couldn’t help but laugh, “Then, I’ll wait for you. Wake up and pack up now.”
Sun Tiantian buried herself in the blanket and her voice was very low, “Would you please come in and help me pack up? Duoduo has gone, I’m alone in the room.”
Many female students ask their boyfriends during school holidays to come in and help them packed up their stuff. Besides, Sun Tiantian was from the Faculty of Arts which was the earliest into the holiday. Almost all the students from her faculty have returned home and their dorm was empty, there was not a single person could be seen.
But because the campus was still open until tomorrow, there was still a dorm aunt on duty at the door of the dormitory. Shen Nianshen went there to report and the dorm aunt smiled sweetly as she asked, “You come to help your girlfriend move her things?”
Shen Nianshen smiled, “Yes.”
“Just sign here.”
“Thank you, Auntie.”
Only after Shen Nianshen finished reporting, did he go inside. He called Sun Tiantian and asked for the room number, a few moments later he arrived at the door of her room.
When there was a knock on the door, Sun Tiantian was still on the bed and immediately rose to her feet, “You’re here?”
She got out of the blanket and leaned against the edge of the bed, shifting her butt to get out of bed.
As soon as the door opened, Shen Nianshen saw Sun Tiantian dressed in a nightgown with a pink bear, standing inside with disheveled hair.
He lifted his hand and stroked her hair, “Why was your sleep so messy?”
Sun Tiantian chuckled and pulled him in, “Get in quickly, it’s cold outside.”
There was heating in the dormitory room, it was warm inside.
Sun Tiantian pulled Shen Nianshen inside and said, “Duoduo left early in the morning. Actually, she woke me up, but I kept laying down and ended up falling asleep.”
Shen Nianshen looked at her and laughed, “Little lazy pig?”
Sun Tiantian looked at him, “I’m little lazy pig, and you’re a big lazy pig.”
Shen Nianshen pinched her nose, “Little lazy pig, hurry up and wash your face.”
Sun Tiantian smiled and said, “Then help me pack up. Just a laptop on the table and some summer clothes in the closet.”
“Okay, I’ll pack them up for you. Hurry up and take a shower.”
Winter vacation was quite short, Sun Tiantian didn’t want to go home with too many items. Otherwise, it will be troublesome to bring them back here when the classes have started.
Shen Nianshen helped her put some winter clothes from the wardrobe into the suitcase. Then walked over to the study table to pack up her laptop.
While tidying up the laptop, he found a sheet of paper placed under the laptop. It was the picture of the scene in the forest last night, the scene of them kissing under a tree.
A very tall man slightly bent his body, one hand on the girl’s back and the other hand on the back of the girl’s head, lowered his head and pressed his lips against hers.
The girl’s body was petite, she shrunk in the man’s arms. Her eyes were shining and there was a timid blush on her face.
Next to the man’s picture was a heart, inside the heart there was cartoon calligraphy that says “Ah Nian”. Next to the girl was also a heart which had the words “Tiantian” written on it.
At the bottom of the picture was written a sentence: January 20, 2012, Ah Nian and I kissed, so happy ^ _ ^
Shen Nianshen stared at the drawing paper for a long time, then he folded it up and put it in his shirt pocket.
When Sun Tiantian finished washing up, she went out to get a change of clothes and ran back to the bathroom.
While running into the bathroom, she poked her head out and said to Shen Nianshen, “No peeking.”
Shen Nianshen stared at her and said, “… am I that obscene?”
Sun Tiantian chuckled and closed the bathroom door.
When Sun Tiantian finished changing her clothes, Shen Nianshen had almost finished packing up. He pointed to the cupboard as he coughed, “Let’s see what else do you want to take home.”
“Okay.” Sun Tiantian walked to the wardrobe.
All her winter clothes were already packed up, she smiled sweetly, “That’s all, this is all.”
Shen Nianshen’s eyes looked a little strange as he looked at her, “Are you sure? There is no more to be taken?”
Sun Tiantian was stunned, unconsciously glanced into the wardrobe, and found that her underwear was still hanging on the innermost side of the wardrobe.
Sun Tiantian suddenly felt a little embarrassed. She quietly took them out and folded them into rolls. While putting it in the suitcase, she secretly glanced at Shen Nianshen. Shen Nianshen was staring the other way, not looking at her.
Sun Tiantian, “…”
Sun Tiantian had finished packing up her belongings, her suitcase was a bit full and not easy to close. Shen Nianshen came to help her and said, “Take a look if there is something not packed up yet.”
“Alright.” Sun Tiantian went to check them. The clothes are there, the laptop too, the skincare products were at home and she’s too lazy to bring them home.
Suddenly she remembered something and lowered her head to search for it for quite a while. She suddenly asked, “Ah Nian, did you see my picture?”
Shen Nianshen closed the suitcase and stood up carrying it, then he looked at Sun Tiantian, “What picture?”
“That …” Sun Tiantian was a little embarrassed to say, she couldn’t possibly say that she drew their kiss scene last night, right? Very embarrassing.
She scratched her head and looked for a long time, but the picture was nowhere to be found. She looked up and asked Shen Nianshen, “It’s a.., it’s a.. pictures of lovers.”
Shen Nianshen put on a serious face, “I didn’t see it.”
Sun Tiantian was displeased and frowned, “How annoying, it took me a lot of time to draw it.”
Shen Nianshen walked over to her and hold her hand, looking at her, “You can just redraw it later.”
Sun Tiantian pursed her lips, “That can only be so.”
Initially, her mother wanted to come and pick her up. But because Sun Tiantian wanted to go home with Shen Nianshen, she specifically told her mother not to come and pick her up.
After leaving the campus gates, Shen Nianshen called a taxi. Sun Tiantian was busy stopping him, “Let’s just take the MRT, I don’t want to go home so fast.”
She still wanted to be with Shen Nianshen for a while longer.
Shen Nianshen gave her a brief look before nodding, “OK.”
Fortunately, it was a holiday and was not in working hours. The MRT was empty and there were plenty of seats.
Sun Tiantian held Shen Nianshen’s hand all the way and asked quietly, “What are you going to do tonight?”
Shen Nianshen replied, “Maybe just take a break for a while.”
Shen Nianshen, “Don’t know, d’you have a plan?”
Sun Tiantian shook her head, “I haven’t thought about it. Later when I got home, I’ll think about it and call you tonight.”
Shen Nianshen nodded, “Okay.”
After two hours journey in the MRT, they finally arrived at the destination station.
Sun Tiantian’s house was on the outskirts of the town, it would take half an hour by taxi.
Exiting the MRT station, they waited for a while by the side of the road and took a taxi home.
Half an hour later, they finally arrived at Sun Tiantian’s house.
The environment where she lives was very nice and very calm.
At first glance, it was a luxurious residential complex. Every house has its’ own large yards and the grounds were lively with flowers and plants.
Shen Nianshen stood outside the complex and looked inside. He turned around and said to Sun Tiantian, “Go home now, I’ll talk to you tonight.”
Sun Tiantian looked at him and asked quietly, “You don’t want to go to my house? My parents are eager to see you.”
Shen Nianshen looked at her and said, “Maybe another time?”
Sun Tiantian nodded, “All right, be careful when you go home, and call me when you got home.”
Sun Tiantian was a little unwilling, she kept standing there motionless.
Shen Nianshen smiled and stroked her head, “Get inside, I’ll call you later.”
Only then did Sun Tiantian nod and take over her suitcase. She looked back every three steps and entered the house reluctantly.
Shen Nianshen continued to stand there. After Sun Tiantian’s figure could not be seen anymore, he turned around and returned to the path he had come from earlier.
When Shen Nianshen arrived home, it was already past two in the afternoon. The house was very quiet and there was no one in the living room.
Shen Nianshen changed his shoes and entered the house. He walked slowly to Grandma’s room and saw Grandma was taking a nap. Relieved, he closed the door slowly and returned to his room.
He unzipped his jacket and sat on the bed, leaning against the head of the bed to call Sun Tiantian.
On the other side of the phone, Sun Tiantian was eating a cake made by her mother. When her cell phone rang, she wiped her mouth immediately and ran upstairs with her cell phone.
Mrs. Sun was utterly helpless and shouted from behind, “Hey, slow down. You’ll fall, be careful!”
Upon returning to her room, she quickly locked the door. Sun Tiantian answered the phone as she threw herself on the bed, “Ah Nian, have you arrived home?”
A cheerful voice rang out from the other side, Shen Nianshen’s mood improved, “Hmm, I’m home. What are you doing?”
Sun Tiantian rolled over on the bed and said happily, “I was eating cake earlier. My mother made the cake for me.”
Shen Nianshen smiled, “Then eat more.”
“Ah Nian, what flavor do you like?” When Sun Tiantian was eating cake earlier, she was just realized. It was a few days away from Shen Nianshen’s birthday, she wanted to make a cake for him.
“Cake? I don’t usually eat it.”
“Oh, you just name one. There must be something you like, right?”
“Really, I don’t have one.” Since childhood Shen Nianshen was rarely eating cake, he didn’t know what taste he liked.
Sun Tiantian sighed, “Alright then.” Then she said happily, “As for me, I like to eat vanilla cream cake, it’s very delicious.”
Shen Nianshen listened across there and silently remembered it.
The two chatted for a while until Mrs. Sun called Sun Tiantian from downstairs. Sun Tiantian got up from bed, “Ah Nian, I’ll hang up first. My mother called me downstairs, I’ll video call you tonight.”
Shen Nianshen, “OK.”
There was no more Sun Tiantian’s voice on the other end of the phone, but Shen Nianshen was still holding the phone and didn’t put it down. After a while, then he put it down.
He leaned his back against the head of the bed, slightly tilted up his head and stared at the cracked ceiling of the room.
The room was cramped and the air was humid. The living environment that was used to him suddenly became an indescribable pressure.
He stared at the ceiling for a long time and suddenly remembered something, he took out the picture he had hidden there earlier.
His gaze fixed on the line of words below: January 20, 2012, Ah Nian and I kissed, so happy ^ _ ^
Seeing that happy smiling face, Shen Nianshen couldn’t help to hold back his laugh.
He stared at the picture for a very long time, then put it in a drawer, and locked it, keep the picture safe.
