The Best Of You (English Ver.) - Chapter 38
Shen Nianshen’s birthday was approaching, Sun Tiantian’s big mission during this winter holiday was to prepare a birthday present for Shen Nianshen.
In order to prepare a present for Shen Nianshen, Sun Tiantian had locked herself in the kitchen for several days.
At ten o’clock in the evening, Lin Jing came home from the office. He just got into the house, he could already hear some noises in the kitchen.
He frowned and looked at his father who was sitting watching TV on the sofa, “What’s that noise?”
Mr. Sun chuckled, “Your sister is messing up the kitchen.”
Lin Jing, “…”
What kind of mess was for a person who never gets into the kitchen would make?
“Oh, Ah Jing is back.” Mrs. Sun happened to come out of the kitchen carrying fruit and smiled sweetly, “Come here quickly, eat some fruit. I just cut them.”
“Thank you, Mom.” Lin Jing changed his shoes and went inside. As he passed the living room, he glanced to the kitchen, “What’s that kid doing?”
Mrs. Sun smiled happily, “It’s rare for Tiantian to be interested in learning to bake.”
Lin Jing’s brows wrinkled, “… is that cake she made edible?”
“Oh, Ah Jing, you shouldn’t talk like that. It’ll hurt Tiantian’s confidence.”
Lin Jing looked disgusted, “I’ll go upstairs first to change.”
After changing clothes, Lin Jing went downstairs and strode into the kitchen to see Sun Tiantian. Sun Tiantian wore an apron and was putting the cream on the cake in a very serious manner.
But the cake looked really bad. The shape was neither square nor round. The cream was also messy and completely uneven.
Lin Jing walked in and looked at her from the side for some time, “Is this cake for humans to eat?”
Sun Tiantian was stunned and looked up to glare at Lin Jing, “Surely, it’s not for you.”
Lin Jing raised his eyebrows, took a spoon from the side, and gouged out a small spoonful of the cake.
Sun Tiantian shouted loudly, “Hey! What are you doing! This is not for you!”
But Lin Jing ate it already and frowned, “Why are there eggshells in it?”
Sun Tiantian, “…”
Lin Jing spit out a piece of eggshell and stared at Sun Tiantian for quite a while. Finally, he laughed, “Who do you want to give this cake for?”
Sun Tiantian pushed his brother out, “Certainly not you!”
After pushing her brother out of the kitchen door, she immediately closed the door shut.
Lin Jing stood for a few seconds in front of the door and pressed his temples. Then, he turned to leave.
Mrs. Sun was sitting watching TV in the living room. She heard the kitchen door closing. She turned around, just when Lin Jing walked out from the kitchen and she asked, “What? You offended our little daughter again?”
Lin Jing, “The cake is really bad, but nobody can make a comment on it.”
Mrs. Sun covered her mouth and smiled, “This is so much better than a few days ago.”
Lin Jing walked into the living room and sat on the sofa. Then he asked, “Who is the cake for?”
Mrs. Sun smiled sweetly, “For Ah Nian. Tiantian said tomorrow is Ah Nian’s birthday.”
Lin Jing, “Ah Nian?”
Mrs. Sun smiled, “Tiantian said, Ah Nian is very kind.”
Lin Jing frowned, “You’ve really considered him a son-in-law?”
Mrs. Sun, “Tiantian likes him. As long as Tiantian likes him, I will like him too.” Then she added, “And you also, don’t interfere too much anymore. Tiantian is an adult now, let her date freely.”
Lin Jing drank a sip of water and rose to his feet, “Mom, you know how our family is doing. Tiantian is too innocent, she could be being used by someone with bad intentions.”
Mrs. Sun, “…”
Lin Jing, “I still have works to do, I’ll go up first.”
After Lin Jing went upstairs, Mrs. Sun whispered softly to her husband, “You businessmen, you always think too much.”
Mr. Sun chuckled and said, “Ah Jing is just worried. Take it easy, he knows the limits.”
The cake that Sun Tiantian made earlier had been gouged up by her brother and had an eggshell in it. It can’t be used anymore.
Sun Tiantian threw the cake into the trash can angrily and made it again.
In the middle of the night, Sun Tiantian was still busy in the kitchen when Mrs. Sun walked in, “Is it not done yet, Tiantian?”
Sun Tiantian nodded, “In a moment.”
“What if I help you?”
“No, Mom. You just rest early.”
Mrs. Sun smiled and said, “Very well. I’ll go up first and rest. When you’re done, you go to bed early. Girls not staying up late.”
“Yes, Mom. Good night.”
After Sun Tiantian urged her mother to sleep, she still tortured herself in the kitchen for more than three hours. At three o’clock in the morning then the cake was ready.
She used some fruit jam to draw two cartoon heads, kissing. It didn’t look like a birthday cake, it looked more like a wedding cake.
Sun Tiantian’s cake was a bit ugly, but fortunately, the pictures were pretty good.
When the cake was done, she put the cake carefully into a box. Then, tied it with the pink ribbon she had bought earlier.
After everything was done, she returned to her room and put on a face mask. When she got into the bed, it was four in the morning.
She sets the alarm, she has to get up at seven in the morning.
In the morning, after brushing her teeth, washing her face, changing clothes, and going downstairs, she found her brother was having breakfast.
Mrs. Sun, who saw her daughter came down, immediately greeted her, “Tiantian, come here quickly. Let’s have breakfast.”
But Sun Tiantian was in a rushed to see Shen Nianshen. She ran to the kitchen directly to get the cake, “I’m not having breakfast, Mom. I have something to do.”
While Sun Tiantian carrying the cake out, Mrs. Sun shouted from behind, “Be careful, let Uncle Li drive you out.”
Before Sun Tiantian went to Shen Nianshen’s house, she stopped at the supermarket to buy some groceries. In recent days she learned to cook from her mother. And this afternoon, she planned to cook for Shen Nianshen.
Come to think of it, Ah Nian might be happier with what she made by herself.
It was ten o’clock already when she arrived at Shen Nianshen’s house.
Sun Tiantian carried a lot of things, stood outside, and knocked on the door. Shen Nianshen heard the knocking door, he immediately went to open the door.
Seeing Sun Tiantian standing outside with both large and small grocery bags, he quickly reached out to take over, “Why did you buy so many things? Come, get in quickly.”
He took the bags in one hand and held Sun Tiantian with his other hand.
Sun Tiantian came into the house smiling, “I bought some groceries, we’ll have dinner at home this afternoon.”
“Tiantian, you’re here.”
“Ah. Hello, grandma.” Sun Tiantian smiled as she greeted.
Grandma sat on the sofa and smiled, “It’s a good thing that you came. Ah Nian’s birthday should be festive.”
Shen Nianshen never celebrated his birthdays before. On his birthday, he would just eat with his grandmother and passed the day as usual.
Shen Nianshen carried the groceries bags into the kitchen and Sun Tiantian followed closely behind him.
Upon entering the kitchen, Sun Tiantian pointed to the pink cake box and said proudly, “I made it myself, you know.”
Shen Nianshen’s eyes were fixed on the box and couldn’t help but smile. He rubbed Sun Tiantian’s head, “Thank you.”
Sun Tiantian chuckled and couldn’t help but hug Shen Nianshen. She looked up, her gaze brightly at Shen Nianshen, “Ah Nian, happy birthday.”
The corners of Shen Nianshen’s lips were turned up and then kissed Sun Tiantian on the forehead, “Thank you.”
He asked again, “Have you had breakfast?”
Sun Tiantian, “Yes, I bought some bread outside and ate them already. And you?”
Shen Nianshen nodded, “Hn.”
After tidying things up, Sun Tiantian came out of the kitchen and headed for the sofa to chat with grandma.
Grandma didn’t want to get in the way of the two interactions and chuckled, “Don’t mind me, you guys have your time, get along together.”
As she spoke, she looked at Shen Nianshen, “Ah Nian, take Tiantian with you.”
Shen Nianshen agreed and took Sun Tiantian’s hand, “Come on, come to my room.”
Sun Tiantian followed Shen Nianshen into his room. As soon as the bedroom door closed, Sun Tiantian couldn’t help but embrace Shen Nianshen’s neck and kiss his lips.
Shen Nianshen hugged her back and smiled, “Very excited?”
Sun Tiantian chuckled happily, “I miss you, Ah Nian.”
Some time ago, Sun Tiantian and her family returned to their hometown. After returning, she was busy with the preparation of Shen Nianshen’s birthday present. The two of them had not seen each other for several days.
Shen Nianshen looked at Sun Tiantian with a gentle gaze, “I miss you too.”
Sun Tiantian grinned and couldn’t help kissing Shen Nianshen again.
Shen Nianshen’s gaze deepened and lowered his head to deeply kiss Sun Tiantian.
Shen Nianshen tightly embraced Sun Tiantian, his lips began to move on Sun Tiantian’s. His tongue opened Sun Tiantian’s rows of teeth and intertwined with Sun Tiantian’s.
After having had the first experience, Sun Tiantian wasn’t as nervous as the first time before. She subconsciously closed her eyes and slightly opened her lips, letting Shen Nianshen kiss her deeply.
After a while, Shen Nianshen slowly let go. His gaze fell onto Sun Tiantian’s wet lips. His breathing was heavy and his Adam’s apple moved, he then lowered his head to kiss her again.
Sun Tiantian was kissed until her brain was lack of oxygen. Her face flushed red and looked at Shen Nianshen. But in the end, she lowered her head shyly.
Shen Nianshen couldn’t help smiling whenever he saw Sun Tiantian shy. He raised his hand and touched Sun Tiantian’s head, then took her hand, “This way.”
He pulled Sun Tiantian to the side of the bed, “Have a seat.”
The bed was very neat and Sun Tiantian could not help lying down.
She laid her head on Shen Nianshen’s pillow, there was a faint mint scent and it was Shen Nianshen’s body scent.
She rolled happily on the bed, “Ah Nian, your bed is very comfy.”
Shen Nianshen sat on the table next to the bed and couldn’t help but laugh, “Isn’t it the same?”
“It’s not the same.” Sun Tiantian was lying on her back and an image suddenly appeared in her mind. She and Ah Nian were sleeping in the same bed … at night she was asleep and the next morning, she would wake up in Shen Nianshen’s arms …
Thinking of such a life, Sun Tiantian was very happy, but also embarrassed. She buried her face in the pillow and giggled to herself.
Shen Nianshen didn’t know what the girl was laughing at and asked, “What is it?”
Sun Tiantian laughed for a while before raising her head. She tilted her body and looked at Shen Nianshen, suddenly saying, “I want to graduate soon.”
Sun Tiantian smiled, “When you’ve graduated, you can get married.”
Hearing this, Shen Nianshen was stunned for a moment and nodded along with a smile, “Yeah.” He added, “Not long anymore.”
Several years at university passed by in just the blink of an eye.
Sun Tiantian got out of bed and sat on Shen Nianshen’s lap, put her hand around Shen Nianshen’s neck, and lowered her head to kiss the young man’s lips.
Shen Nianshen stared at her for a while and then tilted his head to kiss her.
Sun Tiantian grinned and dodged on purpose.
Shen Nianshen held Sun Tiantian’s head and kissed her.
Sun Tiantian chuckled and hugged Shen Nianshen even tighter, “This afternoon, let me do the cooking.”
Shen Nianshen raised his eyebrows, “Do your food edible?”
Sun Tiantian cupped Shen Nianshen’s face with her hands, her eyes twitched, “Don’t underestimate me, okay? I am really great.”
Shen Nianshen smiled and his face was full of affection, “Yes, yes, yes, you are really great. Then, I’ll just wait for the food.”
Sun Tiantian snapped her fingers happily, “No problem!”
