Chapter 91: She Almost Tricked Herself
Chu Ruoruo suddenly thought of something and exclaimed.
She then opened her school bag and took out a small box of biscuits. She handed it to Ye Qingran and said, “Brother Ran, I made this myself. Try and see if you like it.”
Ye Qingran opened the box. There were colorful biscuits of various patterns. They looked delicious and appetizing.
She picked up a piece and put it into her mouth, savoring it’s taste.
Chu Ruoruo looked at her nervously and asked, “Is it delicious?”
Ye Qingran praised, “It’s very delicious. It’s nice and crispy. Did you really make this yourself?”
Chu Ruoruo nodded. “Yes, I made it myself.”
Ye Qingran sincerely expressed, “It’s even more delicious than the ones sold outside.”
Chu Ruoruo immediately said, “If you like them, then I’ll make them for you more often in the future.”
Ye Qingran said, “Thank you.”
Chu Ruoruo leaned back on her chair and looked over to Ye Qingran, who was seated in the passenger seat. She said seductively, “Brother Ran, there aren’t many girls in this world that likes to dress beautifully and have good culinary skills like me. Do you want to make a reservation in advance, so there won’t be anyone else to snatch me?”
Ye Qingran: “Uh ~ ~ ~”
Chu Ruoruo continued to promote herself, “Don’t hesitate and just make a reservation. This is a once-in-a-blue-moon opportunity. I will be a charming and knowledgeable wife, with good temper that knows how to care for my husband and children while taking care of the house.”
If she were a man, she would definitely make a reservation.
The problem was that she is not a man.
She looked at Chu Yan and quickly changed the topic. “Ruoruo is really amazing. Her culinary skills are completely professional. Brother, do you want to try it?”
She handed the box of biscuits over.
Chu Ruoruo was also innocent and gullible. When she heard Ye Qingran say this, she smiled and said from the side, “Brother, I know you don’t like sweet food, but you can try it too. It’s really delicious.”
Chu Yan continued looking straight with both hands on the steering wheel. “I’m driving.”
Chu Ruoruo tried to be considerate and said, “Then I’ll feed one to you.”
Just as she was about to move her hand, Chu Yan stopped her. “Your hand is dirty.”
Chu Ruoruo immediately retracted her hand and looked at it.
Just now, she had been touching the chair. It was indeed quite dirty.
She said, “Brother Ran, feed one to my brother.”
Ye Qingran replied “Oh” and took a piece to Chu Yan’s mouth. “This matcha flavored one tastes pretty good. It’s not that sweet. Try It…”
As Chu Yan opened his mouth and ate the biscuit, his lips accidentally touched Ye Qingran’s finger.
Ye Qingran felt as if an electric current jolted through her. Her heart suddenly felt numb.
She quickly retracted her finger and asked naturally, “Is it good?”
Chu Ruoruo also asked, “Is it good, brother?”
Chu Yan only vaguely replied, “En”.
Chu Ruoruo, who failed to receive any praise, pouted her lips in disappointment.
But she quickly returned to normal and turned to speak to Ye Qingran.
When they were eating hotpot, she also kept serving Ye Qingran various meat and vegetables.
Ye Qingran’s bowl was almost full. She picked up some and gave them to Chu Ruoruo. “Alright, you should have some more too.”
Then, she also gave some to Chu Yan.
Chu Ruoruo also started to serve Chu Yan some meat. “Brother, thank you for treating me to hotpot today.”
Chu Yan replied indifferently, “This meal isn’t to treat you.”
Chu Ruoruo was unhappy. “If you weren’t treating me, who else are you treating?”
Ye Qingran saw that she was jealous and was afraid that she would be upset. She explained, “I previously helped your brother with a small matter, so he’s treating me to dinner to show his gratitude.”
When Chu Ruoruo heard this, she was immediately happy again. “So, it was brother who invited Brother Ran to dinner. Brother Ran was thinking of me and so brought me along.”
Ye Qingran shook her head. “I regret it.”
Chu Ruoruo smiled sweetly. “It’s too late to regret it now that I’ve found out. I knew Brother Ran likes me the most.”
She continued to enjoy the delicious food and ate with relish.
Halfway through, Chu Ruoruo went to the bathroom.
Ye Qingran immediately asked Chu Yan, “In the past, didn’t you tell me to stay away from Ruoruo? Weren’t you against us being together? Why did you agree just now?”
Chu Yan asked, “Do you want me to reject it?”
Ye Qingran said, “It’s not about what I want. I think you should be against it. We are still high school students, and our priority should be our studies. How could we think about dating?”
Chu Yan said calmly, “After observing for this period of time, I realized that both of you have not let your relationship affect your studies. In that case, why should I continue to be against it?”
Ye Qingran: “…”
She recalled the scene when she first saw Chu Yan.
When Chu Yan saw her, his gaze was cold and sharp, and he gave off a cold aura.
He even threw a check at her, telling her to stay away from Chu Ruoruo.
She asked, “Are you really Chu Yan?”
Chu Yan asked back, “If not, who else would I be?”
Ye Qingran replied casually, “I’m wondering if you’ve had your soul transmigrated.”
“What’s soul transmigration?”
“Soul transmigration is a setting in novels. It refers to a person’s soul transferring into another person’s body. The body remains the same, but the soul has already changed. Therefore, the way you talk and act will be different from before.”
Ye Qingran explained.
Chu Yan’s chopsticks suddenly paused.
He raised his eyes to look at Ye Qingran and said while cooking some meat, “This… reminds me of you in the past. The way you speak and act, seems different from now.”
Ye Qingran was stunned.
This was just a casual conversation, and she almost exposed herself.
She blinked and smiled without batting an eyelid. “In the past? Does brother know what type of person I was? Didn’t we just meet not too long ago?”
Chu Yan placed his cooked meat into Ye Qingran’s bowl. “I don’t know.”
Ye Qingran met his gaze with clear eyes. “I’ve always been like this. I’m just more casual now, so my reputation hasn’t been too good.”
Chu Yan did not know the original owner, hence she did not try to act like the original owner.
Otherwise, with Chu Yan’s mind reading-like intelligence and keen observation skills, he would have long noticed that there was a change in her.
Chu Ruoruo exited the bathroom and saw two waiters in the restaurant staring at her table while whispering to each other.
As she walked closer, she could hear them.
The first waitress clenched her fists excitedly. “Oh my God, oh my god, those two must be a couple. Look at their eyes when they look at each other. Aww, they’re so cute!”
The second waitress said, “I think they’re a couple too. Look, look, that young sir is serving food to the young miss. Oh my god, so doting and gentle. This old auntie’s maiden heart is about to explode.”
Chu Ruoruo followed their gaze and looked at Chu Yan and Ye Qingran.
Her brother was actually taking food for Brother Ran.
He had never even taken food for herself.
Moreover, his gaze was really doting… Last time, Monet said that Brother Ran had been seduced by a scheming man.
Could it be that the scheming man was actually her brother?
