Chapter 169: We Will Grow Old Together (2)
“I hope so as well.” Xin Siyue smiled. “However, I often wake up feeling unsure whether I’m actually in this world or the other one. I’ve even wondered. What if we just never got married? Will the world never end if we keep going like this? But, I couldn’t do that to you, Chen Sinan. I want to walk by your side as your official wife. Even if it’s only two years, I’ll still feel blessed.”
The car stopped. Chen Sinan heard her say, “No matter what happens in the future, meeting you and loving you is already enough for me. As for our future, let’s just leave that up to God to decide. Okay?”
“We’ll definitely stay together until we grow old.” Chen Sinan took her hand and leaned over to pull her into his arms. He lowered his head down and kissed her on the lips before saying in a soft voice, “Don’t think too much about it.”
Xin Siyue looked up with her eyes glistening with tears, “You won’t feel disgusted with me because of this, will you?”
Chen Sinan hugged her, brooding. “If I do, can I still return you right now?”
When she heard that, Xin Siyue knew that he was just teasing her. So, without any thought, she said, “No! Anyway, after our wedding at the end of April, I’ll be latching on to you! Don’t even think about throwing me aside in your lifetime.”
“Yeah. Even if you’re a heavy burden, I won’t throw you away.”
“How am I heavy? What’s more, when have I ever made you worry?”
Chen Sinan looked at her. “You don’t think so? Who’s the one making me worry every day!”
Xin Siyue wouldn’t admit it. She was clearly a very independent person. You see, she works hard, earns her own money, and isn’t clingy. “Anyway, that person wasn’t me.”
Chen Sinan chuckled softly. He no longer said anything else to her, and instead, holding her face, he kissed her deeply…
On the other hand, Sheng Wenyang who had seen Chen Sinan enter Xin Siyue’s car was standing in place, not moving even after a long time had passed.
“Did you see that? The two of them have a close relationship.” Mo Bei’s deep voice emerged.
Sheng Wenyang did not turn around to look at him, her gaze just followed the car as it left. She laughed self-deprecatingly and asked, “Did you come just so you could laugh at me?”
“Is that what you think?” Mo Bei frowned.
“Am I wrong? Shamelessly, I thought I was Chen Sinan’s girlfriend at the start, but who knew that he didn’t think about me in that way at all? Look, in those years when I went overseas, Xin Siyue had already replaced me completely. It’s all my own fault.”
When Mo Bei heard her words, he laughed at himself as well. Why would he be so immersed in her at the beginning, thinking of her as someone so excellent and charming? Even till now, the only person who can’t come to terms with reality is just herself.
“Wenyang, let it go. Chen Sinan loves Xin Siyue.”
“Enough!” Sheng Wenyang suddenly raised her voice and turned around to yell at him nastily. “Even if you like me, so what?! Do you think you can stab my heart over and over again with your words just because you like me?! Mo Bei, why can’t you just support me and understand me?! I love Chen Sinan! I love him more than I love myself! Even if you want me to stop loving me, you should give me some time to forget him! Stop forcing me, Mo Bei! I feel like I’m going to break soon! I can’t take it anymore!”
Mo Bei looked at her and his eyes turned red. Before he could say anything, he saw her running to her own car, getting in, and drove off. The scene almost looked like she was running away.
Mo Bei stood there for a long time. When his phone suddenly rang, he finally came back to his senses. The caller ID on the phone was “Minor”.
Mo Bei reached his hand up to massage his temples and picked up the call, only to hear a clear and pleasant voice on the other end that was slightly pitched. “Mo Bei, Mo Bei! There’s an English paragraph I can’t understand, can you translate it for me? Please?”
The “please” at the very end had been deliberately dragged on, bringing with it a feeling of sweetness.
Mo Bei was dazed for a moment before finally asking, “What does it say?”
The person on the other side immediately read out the paragraph with a giggle.
“The furthest distance in the world
Is not between life ah
But when I stand in front of you
Yet you don’t know that
I love you.”
As soon as that soft voice finished speaking, the person on that end added on quickly, “What does that paragraph mean? Mo Bei, help me translate it.”
Mo Bei smiled. Only then did he sai, “I’m quite curious myself. How could someone who is able to read the pronunciations of each word so accurately not know its meaning in Chinese? If you really don’t understand, I don’t mind having a chat with your parents later and tell them to hire an English tutor for you.”
The person on the other side deflated. After a sigh, a voice filled with complaints could be heard. “Fine, you don’t have to tell me if you don’t want to! No need to be uppity about it!” After that, without even waiting for his response, she threw him out a sentence in a huff, “Mo Bei, I don’t want to see you anymore! Hateful guy!”
Mo Bei looked at the call that had been cut and felt helpless. Even if she says that, she would still appear in front of him, cheerful and jumping in joy.
So, what’s there to worry about? Why should he care?
