Su Jinyue walked over to the well, picked up the bucket and fetched a bucket of water, “I arranged to meet Big Brother Yihan to go up the mountain to gather herbs.”
Xu Tiansheng nodded and said, “Come back early, don’t be as late as yesterday.” Yesterday, he was really worried about her and thought that she had had an accident like the last time. With Yihan accompanying her today, he felt at ease.
“I promise to come back early,” Su Jinyue said with a cheeky smile. She then began to brush her teeth and wash her face. She and Yihan had arranged to meet at six o’clock, and it was about that time now.
In the room, Song Yiren clenched her teeth in anger, when she heard what Su Jinyue said. She absolutely could not let Su Jinyue and Big Brother Zhan spend time together alone. She had to go along with them.
She climbed out of the bed. Her feet had just landed on the ground, when a sharp pain shot up through her entire right ankle. What’s going on?
Song Yiren lifted her foot and saw that her ankle was all purple. “Despicable! Shameless!” She did not need to guess to know that she had fallen for Su Jinyue’s trap.
When Zhan Yihan walked into the main hall, he saw his mother eating breakfast. He walked over to her and sat down. “Mum, where’s Dad?”
“He went fishing by the river. Why are you up so early?” Wang Meizhen asked. The family’s farm chores have already been done. Other than having to go to the fields to fertilize the vegetables, there was nothing left to do.
“I’m going to accompany Jinyue to gather herbs in the mountains today. I’ll come back a bit later,” Zhan Yihan said.
When Wang Meizhen heard this, she was secretly pleased. “Yihan, I have a question for you.” What worried her the most was that Yihan had no clue about relationships. However, now, it seemed that he had a little interest in Jinyue. Otherwise, he would not have flown straight to the clinic to visit Jinyue, as soon as he came back.
“Yeah!” Zhan Yihan picked up the bread and porridge on the table and ate it. Yesterday night, he practically did not sleep the entire night and kept thinking about Jinyue kissing him.
“What do you think of Dr. Su?” Wang Meizhen stared at Zhan Yihan and waited for his answer expectantly.
“Pretty good.” Zhan Yihan lifted his wrist up to check the time. He then stuffed the rest of the bread into his mouth.
“In that case, I will go to Dr. Xu’s place today to help you bring up a proposal of marriage,” Wang Meizhen said with a smile.
“Ahem, mhm!” Zhan Yihan choked on the bread in his mouth. He took a sip of porridge and felt better. “Mum, Jinyue and I are not what you think. I treat her like my younger sister, just like Yiping.”
Wang Meizhen rolled her eyes at Zhan Yihan and said, “Dr. Su is a nice lady, you better know how to cherish her, or else you’ll regret it in the future. A few days ago, Big Sister Liu from the east of the village introduced someone to Dr. Su. I heard that the other party is a skilled worker and has good character.”
Zhan Yihan’s brows furrowed and he stood up. “Mum, I’m going out.” He felt uncomfortable when he heard that someone had introduced a man to Jinyue.
“Wait a minute!” Wang Meizhen called out to Zhan Yihan to stop him. She walked to the side and took a piece of oil paper. She wrapped a few pieces of bread in it and handed it to Zhan Yihan. “Take it along with you to eat on the road.” She would observe the situation over the next few days, and ask Yihan for his opinion again in two days. Anyway, Yihan would be staying at home for a few days.
Zhan Yihan took the packet from her and walked out.
Carrying a basket on her back and humming a song, Su Jinyue walked out of the village in a great mood. When she was applying ointment for Song Yiren last night, she had secretly used underhanded tactics on her, so that she would definitely not be able to get out of bed within these next three days. She was elated as long as Song Yiren could be beaten.
From a distance, she could see Zhan Yihan standing under the old locust tree. Waving to him with a smile, she ran forward quickly and said, “Big Brother Yihan, have you been here for a long time?”
“I just got here. Have you eaten breakfast?” Zhan Yihan asked. For some reason, when he saw her, his heart uncontrollably skipped a beat.
Su Jinyue smiled and nodded. “What about you?”
“Pass me the basket.” Zhan Yihan nodded and reached out to take the basket on Su Jinyue’s back.
Su Jinyue smiled sweetly and took a step forward, walking by his side. “Big Brother Yihan, did you not sleep well last night?”
“I slept soundly.” How can she tell that I didn’t sleep well?
Su Jinyue glanced at Zhan Yihan coquettishly and said, “Your dark circles are so bad. It would be strange if you actually slept well.” Can it be that he couldn’t sleep because I gave him a kiss? Thinking of this possibility, it felt like she had eaten honey, and her mood was even better.
Zhan Yihan touched his face. Is it that obvious?
Looking at Zhan Yihan’s movements, Su Jinyue could not help but laugh. “Even with dark circles under your eyes, you still look very handsome.”
Zhan Yihan’s ears slightly flushed red. Is she flirting with me?
Noticing Zhan Yihan’s slightly flushed ears, Su Jinyue’s smile deepened. “Big Brother Yihan, do you have a girlfriend?” In her past life, he was still single when she was shot to death. Although his friends, family and bosses had introduced girls to him, he had turned them down. She did not know if he got married later on or if it was like what had happened in her dream.
Recalling that frightening dream, Su Jinyue’s heart ached. She would rather he marry someone else than he die a horrible death for her sake.
“Why are you asking this?” Zhan Yihan looked at Su Jinyue and saw that her face was a little pale. He asked worriedly, “Are you not feeling well? How about we go back.”
Su Jinyue shook her head and put on a faint smile while looking at Zhan Yihan. “I’m fine. You haven’t answered my question yet.”
Meeting Su Jinyue’s eyes which were as clear as water, Zhan Yihan’s heart throbbed inexplicably and he said, “I don’t have one.”
“In that case, I’ll introduce someone to you. She’s beautiful, kind and smart. She’s very suitable for you. You’ll definitely be pleased if you meet her,” Su Jinyue said with a smile. Am I being too thick skinned to describe myself like that?
When he heard Su Jinyue’s words, an anger that could not be suppressed, rose in his heart. “That’s not necessary!” She actually wants to introduce someone to me. Does she want me to find someone that much?
“You should at least take a look!” He rejected her just like that. How was she going to continue the conversation?
“You don’t have to worry about it, I don’t want to meet her.” Zhan Yihan marched ahead with a solemn face. He did not know why he was angry, but he just could not help being angry.
Su Jinyue shrugged her shoulders and scurried to catch up with him. “Big Brother Yihan, are you angry?” She really did not understand why he suddenly became angry. It was such a pity that an opportunity was wasted, just like that.
“No,” Zhan Yihan uttered coldly.
“If that’s the case, why are you walking so quickly?” Su Jinyue looked at her legs, then looked at Zhan Yihan’s long legs. She shook her head. With every one step he takes, she probably has to take three steps.
“I’m used to it,” Zhan Yihan said as he slowed down.
Su Jinyue’s lips turned up slightly and she ran to Zhan Yihan’s side. Glancing down at his hand, her eyes shifted slyly and she stretched out her hand to grab his. However, her hand stopped midair. Will he be angry if I hold his hand?
Glancing towards Zhan Yihan’s hand again, Su Jinyue gritted her teeth and held onto Zhan Yihan’s hand. Who cares, I shall just hold onto it first.
