The next morning, Nan Yan was awakened from her sleep by her phone ringing. Although she didn’t have a big temper, she was a little bit angry. So, after the phone rang several times, Nan Yan became a little impatient. With her eyes closed, she fumbled for the phone and answered it unhappily, “Speak if you have anything to say, and hang up if there’s nothing.”
“Miss, are you still sleeping? Do you know what time it is?” Hearing Nan Yan’s unpleasant voice, Shan Zhuoran, on the other end of the phone, also felt quite helpless.
Hearing Shan Zhuoran’s voice, Nan Yan opened her eyes and glanced sideways at the white alarm clock at the head of the bed. The pointer on it clearly pointed in the direction of half-past ten. She sat up suddenly and smacked her forehead. “Sorry, I overslept and forgot. Is it too late now?”
“I have already finished shooting.” Shan Zhuoran sighed. “I sent you so many WeChat messages, but you didn’t reply. I thought something happened to you!”
“Can you not curse me so early in the morning?” Nan Yan was relieved when he said that the filming was over, so she laid down again, closed her eyes, and asked lazily.
“What did you promise me yesterday? You said you would take a set of photographic covers for me, but you were sleeping. How do you plan to compensate me?”
“Then shall I treat you to a big meal after you’re done busying?” Nan Yan yawned and said nonchalantly.
The sun shone through the thin clouds and reflected the golden light. In the school cafeteria, it was a different scene.
Shan Zhuoran looked at the rice and chicken drumsticks, curry potatoes, garlic pork ribs, three chicken nuggets, and tomato scrambled eggs on the dinner plate in front of him. There were also a few garlic Choy sums, and a bottle of Yakult next to her. There was a speechless and ambivalent expression on his face.
“This… is what you call a big meal?” Shan Zhuoran curled his lips, crossed his arms around his chest, and with disbelief, he looked at Nan Yan, who was already calmly eating.
Nan Yan raised her eyes and nodded. “Uh-huh, why, you’re not satisfied? Would you like me to add another chicken drumstick for you?”
“I thought you would at least invite me to eat at a higher-end restaurant instead of eating together at the cafeteria.”
“Our S University’s canteen is also very high-end. The food here is some of the best among all schools in Luo City. Moreover, yours is a sumptuous combo. You see, I have a serving of sweet and sour pork tenderloin, stir-fry tomato and eggs, pork ribs, and chicken drumsticks. I bought that bottle of Yakult especially for you. I’m so earnest, yet you’re actually feeling disdainful. Do you have a conscience?” Nan Yan said this with a relaxed and nonchalant expression on her face as she ate.
Shan Zhuoran was also speechless, and had to say, “How did the fourth young madam of the Nan family reach the point where she can’t even afford chicken legs?”
“If you want to eat more drumsticks, can’t you just say it? I’ll get one for you, so don’t say that I’m stingy, okay? I’m not that poor and destitute.” Nan Yan put down the chopsticks in her hand and got up in preparation to get more food for him.
“Alright, forget it, I’ll accept it. If it’s the canteen then so be it!” When Shan Zhuoran saw this, he quickly pulled her back. Resigning himself to his fate, he picked up the chopsticks and ate.
Nan Yan raised her eyebrows. “Look, I allowed you to get more drumsticks. It’s you yourself who didn’t cherish it, okay?”
Shan Zhuoran rolled his eyes. “I think in this regard, you and your second brother are becoming more and more alike?”
“Oh, is it so?”
Shan Zhuoran nodded heavily and took a bite of the hard-won drumstick. “I have personal experience of his slyness and cunningness.”
“Thank you, but you should be polite to my second brother, your future older brother-in-law since I will tattletale.” Nan Yan smiled at him slightly and kindly reminded him.
