Whispering To You - Chapter 48
The 43rd Whisper
As soon as Chen Ran returned to Jinzhou, Cheng Yin felt she could not stay in the house and immediately screamed to go back to school early.
Cheng Yin’s mother and father agreed. This seven-day holiday has no travel arrangements anyway, and it is normal for their daughter want to go back to school to play with new friends, so they let Cheng Sheng accompany her back together.
Cheng Sheng glanced at Cheng Yin and saw her face full of light, and immediately refused, not forgetting to mutter in his heart what kind of luck this silly girl had gotten.
So Cheng Yin herself neatly packed her bags and went back to Jinzhou the next day.
The plane landed at 5pm, Cheng Yin didn’t go back to school. She took her suitcase and went straight to the training center to find Chen Ran, arriving just as Chen Ran finished his training.
Because they just finished a competition, these day’s training is relatively loose, so Chen Ran did not have evening training.
He carried Cheng Yin’s suitcase and asked, “So you just left? Your parents don’t have a problem with that?”
“I told my parents that I came back to study.”
“Study?” Chen Ran took a step forward, bent down close and laughed, “Learn what?”
Cheng Yin felt his breath on her face and squinted her eyes to avoid it.
“I lied, and you don’t even understand this?”
Chen Ran took her hand and laughed silently.
“Let’s go, little fool.”
He left her suitcase at the gatekeeper’s office, then led Cheng Yin to the canteen.
“Is there anyone else in the school dorm?”
“Yes, there are still roommates who haven’t left.”
There were people passing by, and when they saw Chen Ran, they would say hello to him. And then their eyes would fall on Cheng Yin beside him.
Cheng Yin was embarrassed. Her hands hugged Chen Ran’s arm and even blocked a small part of her face.
“Are there many people in the canteen?”
“It is mealtime. What’s wrong?”
“No, nothing ……”
Well, even if you feel weirdly embarrassed.
Many people were sitting and eating in the hall when they arrived at the canteen.
Different from Cheng Yin’s imagination, this place is vivacious, just like the school cafeteria. Everyone sitting together in groups of three or two, and the dishes laid out in front of them, are also very generous.
But as she imagined, there were many people looking at her.
Cheng Yin was too shy to lift her head, but Chen Ran was calm. He led her to the counter to order the meal and then found a seat on the side to sit down.
“Do you eat with your face?”
Seeing Cheng Yin almost buried her face into the rice, Chen Ran could not help but say.
Cheng Yin slowly raised her head and moved to the side.
“Why? Why are they all looking at me?”
Chen Ran said unconcerned: “This place rarely lets people in. I reported to the coach this morning, and the coach spoke to the Leader, so I can bring you in.”
Cheng Yin: “……”
She didn’t hold her chopsticks steady and dropped a piece of meat.
“That means everyone here knows about it?”
Chen Ran nodded his head.
Cheng Yin never wants to come again.
It’s not just a meal, but also a report, so shameful ah!
Cheng Yin ate and buried her head into the rice.
During this meal, five or six people came over to say hello to Chen Ran and look at Cheng Yin in passing, and seven or eight people took a special detour to pass by and look at Cheng Yin.
It was difficult to finish the meal, so when Chen Ran said he wanted to go back to the dormitory to take a shower, Cheng Yin finally relieved.
This way, they will meet no one.
“I have to be checked at 10 pm, so I’ll send you back to school later, huh?”
Cheng Yin, who was looking around, looked back, nodded and added, “How come you guys are more strict than us students?”
Chen Ran took out a change of clothes from the closet and said, “Isn’t to help you keep your boyfriend under tighter control?”
Cheng Yin smiled blushingly.
Of course it’s good, but it’s pitiful.
“It’s not bad, it’s just that every night they check in on time, just like high school students, not free at all.”
“Then you want me to stay up at night with you?”
“Who is talking to you about this?” Cheng Yin leaped in front of him. “Get out of the way! I’ll go to the bathroom first.”
She pushed away Chen Ran, smiled and retreated to the table, pressed the switch of the electric kettle and intended to boil a pot of hot water for her.
The knock on the door suddenly sounded.
Cheng Yin asked nervously in the toilet, “Who is it?”
“I don’t know.” Chen Ran walked over. “What are you nervous about?”
The moment he opened the door, Jiang Wenwen pulled her suitcase and stood breathlessly at the door.
Chen Ran suddenly had a feeling of being speechless.
“Why are you here?”
“Why am I here?” Jiang Wenwen was originally out of town to attend a university classmate’s wedding, and saw Chen Ran’s circle of friends this morning, and sent Chen Ran a message for many days without getting a response, so she booked a flight back today, and didn’t even put her luggage, “You didn’t read the message I sent you?”
Chen Ran side-stepped out of the way, “Come in and talk.”
She walked in with her suitcase, and Chen Ran closed the door directly.
Jiang Wenwen adjusted her expression to make herself look as calm as possible.
“What did you mean by that friend circle you posted last night? You were with that girl?”
Chen Ran glanced at the bathroom. The light was on inside, but there was no sound at all.
“Answer your first question first.”
Chen Ran said, “I read your message, but I do not feel the need to reply to you. Second, you are not in a position to question my love life, right?”
Chen Ran’s two words directly killed the little hope in Jiang Wenwen’s heart, her eyes instantly sore, and she shivered coldly from the top of her head to the bottom of her feet.
“Then what do you take me for?”
Chen Ran helplessly pinched his eyebrows.
“You’re asking this question for the third time. I remember the first two times I told you clearly that I don’t have any romantic feelings for you. You’re my coach’s daughter, that’s all.”
Just like the first two times, Jiang Wenwen still looked at him incredulously.
“If now you are still not clear, then I will answer you for the third time, I do not have any feelings for you, and if you do something that will secretly upset my girlfriend, then we are not even strangers, do you understand? Do I need to repeat it to you for the fourth time?”
“Girlfriend?” Jiang Wenwen was so angry that she laughed, “Strangers are not even counted? We’ve known each other for over ten years, and you don’t want this relationship because of that girl who popped up out of nowhere.”
The electric kettle on the side is ringing, Chen Ran did not rush to speak, find a cup to pour a cup of hot water, and then slowly said: “Do you know how to talk? What do you mean by the girl who suddenly popped out? That’s my girlfriend.”
He still had that faint look, with little expression, but his tone was so cold that Jiang Wenwen intuitively fell into the ice cellar.
“Also, don’t talk to me about relationship, we didn’t have a relationship back when you tricked me into going to the bar last year.”
Speaking of the bar incident, Jiang Wenwen took a deep breath to calm herself down and said word by word: “You said you have no feelings for me, then why are you willing to protect me rather than tell the truth in order to get yourself fired!”
Since the matter is said, Jiang Wenwen’s heart already knows today she has no way back. She has been supporting her own logic for a year, and this is the last hope she can hold on to.
But Chen Ran actually laughed.
So angry and funny.
“You actually think so?”
Jiang Wenwen opened her mouth and said nothing.
Once the person across from her showed such an expression and tone, even if he hadn’t said the following, it was enough to make one’s heart sink straight down.
“Jiang Wenwen.” Chen Ran bit the weight of these words and said, “Care more about your father.”
Jiang Wenwen’s voice trembled as she said, “What do you mean?”
“If you cared more about your father, you would know how difficult his situation has been these past two years.”
Chen Ran looked at the white smoke curling up from the cup, thinking of Jiang Chao in his heart. His eyes unconsciously softened a bit.
“Why do you think he is always sick? In the past two years, there are people who are not satisfied with him, watching him everywhere to find his fault in order to suppress him, if people know his own daughter, you..”
He sneered, “Tricking a player the day before he returned to the team into going to a bar, resulting in a serious disciplinary violation. Do you think he can still stay in this place now?”
Speaking of this incident, although Chen Ran had already relieved himself, but seeing Jiang Wenwen’s face, he couldn’t help but still find it hard to suppress his anger.
And Jiang Wenwen’s face was already so pale that it was bloodless.
It turns out that this is really just a dream that she created for herself.
It turns out that Chen Ran did not risk his own future to protect her at all, but because of her father.
The fact is, she knows she was drunk at the bar and not sober in her head before she deceived herself and said she was in danger, and tricked Chen Ran into proving that he had her in his heart.
But she forgot it was the day Chen Ran returned to the team, and she didn’t expect Chen Ran to be punished seriously for it.
Chen Ran accepted the punishment and did not tell the truth.
No one said.
This allowed Jiang Wenwen to hold on to a hint of hope.
Over time, Jiang Wenwen slowly became convinced that Chen Ran was trying to protect her by choosing to take on the mistakes she had made.
But now, Chen Ran told her it was all for protecting her father.
One sentence shattered a dream she had created for herself.
And Chen Ran is still not done and wants to spread her self-deception bloody out for her to see.
“I also thought about justifying myself, and stayed up all night in torment, but no matter what, this has nothing to do with you, if your father was not the coach who trained me for over ten years, not to mention hiding the truth for you, I would not have appeared at the bar that night.”
Jiang Wenwen was silent for a long time until rolling tears dripped onto the back of her hand.
“If you still can’t understand how difficult Coach Jiang’s situation is, you can go out and turn right now and go to the team leader’s office to tell the truth, and you can see if your father will immediately go into the hospital with a brain hemorrhage and then be implicated to the point of losing his coaching qualifications because of you.”
No matter how tolerant Chen Ran is to those around him, but facing someone who almost ruined his career because of their own actions, Chen Ran has already tolerated to the extreme.
If she hadn’t said this absurd fantasy herself today, Chen Ran wouldn’t even have known that what he did was actually mistaken for love by her.
This is the most ridiculous irony.
Finally, the anger that had been held back for a year was finally vented.
But Chen Ran still said calmly: “You get lost, okay?”
Calm without a trace of temperature.
After Jiang Wenwen left, Chen Ran sat on the stool, out of mind for a while.
Until the hot water in his hand was already warm, Chen Ran said towards the bathroom: “Still not coming out?”
The door handle slowly twisted, and Cheng Yin slowly walked out.
“Ah Yin, come here.”
Cheng Yin walked towards him, wanting to say something, but not knowing what to say is appropriate.
Chen Ran reached towards her. “Come here, let me hug you.”
Cheng Yin immediately jumped into his arms, tightly wrapped around his neck.
Chen Ran stroked her hair and laughed. “What are you sorry for?”
Cheng Yin rubbed the side of her face against his chest and whispered, “If I had known you were once so miserable, I wouldn’t have bothered you so much.”
“It’s good that you know.”
Cheng Yin violently pushed him away and stood up to turn around to leave.
“Fine, then I won’t bother you. I’ll go by myself. We’ll see again if there’s a fate.”
Chen Ran took her hand and dragged her back into his arms. Cheng Yin didn’t look at him.
Chen Ran turned her face over and saw her pursing her lips.
“Haven’t you laughed enough?”
“You’re the one who wants to piss me off on purpose.”
Chen Ran stopped talking and looked at her face, his gaze getting hotter and hotter.
The undisturbed room, two people alone together, and the quiet surrounding.
Cheng Yin felt vaguely in her heart, as if something was going to happen, so she closed her eyes tightly.
The breathing was less calm, and the eyelashes were trembling lightly.
Sure enough, in the next second, a pair of warm lips pressed over.
Not like the last time that was sloppy. He softly kissed the corner of her lips, wandered to the center of the lips, and gently sucked a little.
When she felt the hot and wet tongue touch, Cheng Yin’s shoulders unconsciously shrugged up and her hands clutched the hem of Chen Ran’s shirt.
Then her lips were invaded, and when the lips were tossed and pried open between her teeth, Cheng Yin’s whole body trembled.
Her heart was beating out of her chest, and her ears were filled with the sound of her heartbeat, but she couldn’t cover up the sound of her chaotic breathing.
The two are intertwined, gradually lost the strength of their voices.
Cheng Yin, who was immersed in a passionate kiss, did not know that each of her innocent and unreasonable behavior was the only joy that could make Chen Ran laugh during his lowest point.
