Ruan Jiujiu was nearly confused by herself. She even didn’t understand what she was thinking now.
She could neither be cruel enough to leave fevered Cheng Jun behind, nor accept his confession. Her heart was in a mess now.
Ruan Jiujiu had experienced divorce from her parents when she was little. They had treated her much colder after they had new families. Since college, Ruan Jiujiu had never asked them for money. She had practiced good cooking, got used to her own life and enjoyed it.
Perhaps because of Cheng Jun’s similar experience with her, Ruan Jiujiu unconsciously showed a little more empathy for him. But this didn’t mean that she really wanted to be with him.
It was very easy to talk about love, but she had never thought of falling for it, let alone getting married.
Tu Nan stood in the corridor. His expression was serious, as if he was looking at something through Ruan Jiujiu's inner heart: "Sister-in-law, stop thinking about hiding when you got problems. You’ll regret it later."
Ruan Jiujiu rubbed her short hair anxiously.
Was she hiding? ... Tu Nan seemed right.
"I... I'm leaving now." Ruan Jiujiu was uncollected.
Suddenly, Cheng Jun's voice sounded behind her.
Ruan Jiujiu immediately got nervous. When she was about to leave, Tu Nan laughed in embarrassment and let the two talk. He walked into the ward.
Cheng Jun pushed the holder of the infusion bottle with one hand, which made a squeaking noise on the smooth tiles.
Ruan Jiujiu straightened her back so tightly. She cleared her throat: "Let's make it clear. I take you just as my friend, so..."
"Then try it."
"Huh?" She was surprised and looked at his eyes.
Eyes to eyes. Ruan Jiujiu repeated his words: "Try? ... What?"
Cheng Jun said slowly as if talking about business: "You can try to go on a blind date with me but you don’t have to be stressful.”
Ruan Jiujiu was in shock.
"How will this work? ! "
"We have lived together and are familiar with each other's life and work. There is no contradiction at all."
"You don’t hate me, and I’m not a bad man.”
"The most important thing is that I like you very much, so don't worry about paying unilaterally."
"So why not give it a try? If we still think it’s impossible, we can get a divorce then, and I will let you go."
It made a lot of sense! All conditions were in her favor!
Ruan Jiujiu, again, was successfully convinced by Cheng Jun’s weird logic.
"But, if I still don’t like you..." She really didn't want to hurt him, but it was an unavoidable problem between them.
Giving him hope, then despair and then leaving, all of these would be more painful for him.
Cheng Jun said slowly: "Let me try. I’ll accept it even I failed.”
She thought about it. Cheng Jun seemed right. But she felt something was wrong... Ruan Jiujiu was in contemplation, trying to refute Cheng Jun, but she couldn't come up with one idea.
A blind date in a marriage. Only Cheng Jun can make such a proposal.
She asked Cheng Jun again: "Sure? Are you sure you really want to do this? Actually... if you want to get married, there will be a better choice than me..."
"No." He answered without hesitation.
There will be no more suitable choice than her.
Ruan Jiujiu wanted to tell him that she needed time to think about it again. But Cheng Jun had come to her. He lowered his head and slowly reached his hand.
His voice was low but unexpectedly soft: "Let’s go home."
Ruan Jiujiu was somehow moved.
Tu Nan stood at the door of the ward, eavesdropping hardly, and wished to wear a hearing aid. He only hoped that the boss can be brave enough to hug the sister-in-law! After hearing nothing for a while, Tu Nan poked his head up, but just met their eyes of.
They right now stood by the door, looking at Tu Nan's creepy head.
"..." Tu Nan felt great embarrassed.
"Hahaha, are you all right?"
Cheng Jun: "Go out."
Tu Nan: "..." What was this called? Get rid of a donkey soon as it has done his job... Bah! He wasn’t a donkey! Cruel man! ! Also a strange word...
Ruan Jiujiu agreed with Cheng Jun, although she still felt a little weird.
There was always an illusion that she was confused by Cheng Jun's logic.
Cheng Jun quickly booked the plane ticket, while Ruan Jiujiu, with a distressed expression, said: "Everything in the house is new... and I’ve just paid the rent."
If she knew it would end like this, why did she work hard to clean up the house?
She was really crazy.
Cheng Jun was very calm: "I’ve already bought the house."
Ruan Jiujiu: "Ah? ! "
"So, don’t worry."
Ruan Jiujiu was stunned for a while. Rich man, you think you were great? Yes, really!
Cheng Jun booked air tickets for tonight. It seemed that he was afraid of her being sober and then changing her mind. He moved so quickly and almost wanted to tie her back.
"I have to go back and pack my things."
Cheng Jun put on his coat and stood up from the bed. Ruan Jiujiu stared at him and said: “You are here to stay."
"Okay." He said. Then he was already behind her.
Ruan Jiujiu: "..."
Was it still work to regret now?
Ruan Jiujiu prohibited Cheng Jun from being too close to her. This nerd had the suspicion of taking advantage first, so she needed to protect herself. She walked in front and Cheng Jun followed. They kept a distance of about one or two meters.
Along the way, Ruan Jiujiu was distracted, not knowing whether her decision was right.
Then, she slipped and hit the floor. She, again, made a fool out of herself in front of him.
Ruan Jiujiu: I hate snow days!
Cheng Jun hesitated for while but still didn't step forward to help her. Ruan Jiujiu felt herself had been deeply deceived. She stood up in embarrassment and glared at Cheng Jun: "Why not help me!"
Cheng Jun sounded very reasonable: “Because you said, ‘Never come close to me under any circumstance’ .”
Ruan Jiujiu slowly said: "Some people are alive but actually dead now."
In this way, he still wanted to develop relationship with her? She would rather expect a tsunami to take them to the island and then they had to be together in order to reproduce!
Ruan Jiujiu now probably used all of her life time to murmur against him.
She glared at Cheng Jun angrily. But he looked her blankly.
Ruan Jiujiu became more angry.
She went upstairs to pack things, and Cheng Jun also entered the room. He looked around, and suddenly felt that the house wasn’t bad. Only the single bed had to be replaced with a double one.
He walked into the kitchen, pulled the cabinet open and find there was only a pair of chopsticks
Mr. Cheng's mood suddenly turned into a sunny day.
Ruan Jiujiu was packing her clothes, and when she turned around, she saw Cheng Jun standing in the kitchen, looking in a good mood. She rolled her eyes angrily: "I know you only wanted to eat!"
This guy might have acted for dinner!
Ruan Jiujiu suddenly felt that this assumption was possible.
In the end, Ruan Jiujiu wasn’t sure she was right to accept his proposal. She even felt like she was cheated by him. But then she suddenly realized that Tu Nan was right, and it was impossible to always hide like this.
"Hey, let’s go."
Ruan Jiujiu called Cheng Jun: "We have to catch the plane later."
When the two went out, Cheng Jun helped Ruan Jiujiu with the suitcase, and Ruan Jiujiu followed. The scene was surprisingly harmonious.
Gu You, who hurriedly came here by plane, saw it.
He first froze in place, watching their backs far away, and then was as stiff as a piece of wood. Then he smiled bitterly, and smile again, shaking his head, not knowing what it felt now in his heart. A little bit of hope once in his heart was now broken in an instant. He mocked how ignorant himself was.
Gu You took a ticket from his pocket. It was a live ticket for the game a week later, and was originally reserved for Ruan Jiujiu. But now, it seemed to be unusable.
Gu You was silent for a moment, and simply tore the ticket in half.
Some stuff can be seen clearly before ended. He was never a villain involved in the relationship of others.
Although he liker her...
Since it was wrong, then he won’t continue it anymore.
Ruan Jiujiu sat on the plane. About ten minutes left before taking off. Cheng Jun beside her kept looking down at the phone. Now, he was full of energy, and there was no sign of illness at all. If it wasn’t the high fever still there, Ruan Jiujiu can’t believe he was sick.
"What are you looking at?" She asked casually.
Cheng Jun immediately turned off his phone.
If you checked his phone now, you will definitely see a search term: How to efficiently make the girl have crush on you.
The first answer with the highest vote was—people will have the illusion of love because of the rapid heartbeat in dangerous situations. So it recommended to play thrilling games or go to haunted houses.
Cheng Jun was lost in thought.
After the plane took off, Ruan Jiujiu felt sleepy. Suddenly, Cheng Jun asked: "Do you want to go to the playground?"
"The blind date. We need to date.”
"..." Seemed very reasonable.
Cheng Jun continued: "There is a nearby amusement park with complete facilities, so we can go there on weekdays.”
Hearing this, Ruan Jiujiu was surprised.
She hadn’t played a pirate ship, roller coaster, bungee, and haunted houses for a long time! If she can go there for once, maybe it wasn’t bad!
The author had something to say:
Ruan Jiujiu: I was a woman who had frightened a “ghost” into crying.
Cheng Jun: ...
Mr. Cheng always wanted efficiency. But this didn’t work. ╮(╯▽╰)╭
