Whispering To You - Chapter 56
This year the holidays come early. The exam month will begin in early June, and public classes will start one after another.
Cheng Yin and their journalism department belong to the liberal arts category. The school did not arrange the advanced mathematics class, easier than other majors. But they had to memorize many lessons.
By the end of June, there were almost no more classes, so Cheng Yin and her roommates spent every day in the library memorizing books until it was dark.
Before the examination week, Cheng Yin and the other students bought their plane tickets.
Everyone is on summer vacation, but there is no such thing as a summer vacation for a doctor.
Cheng Yin called Cheng Sheng. He said he had to do a project with his boss, and didn’t have time to go home.
So Cheng Yin called Xie Ying to buy a ticket together.
When the day came to go home, Cheng Yin and Xie Ying met at the airport.
“Ugh.” Cheng Yin check-in through security with a heavy heart, and sighed when they got to the lounge. “It’s no fun.”
“What’s wrong?” Xie Ying asked, “Chen Yan did not come to see you off?”
“He’s not free today.”
“Oh, you’ll have to get used to it.”
“That’s not what I’m worried about.”
“Then what is it?”
Cheng Yin turned her head, looked at Xie Ying, blinked her eyes and asked: “You have all the results, right?”
Xie Ying retreated a little, and said, “Why are you asking this?”
This look is too familiar. Xie Ying always feels that Cheng Yin will grab her to talk about the questions.
“We are different majors. I can’t give you extra lessons.”
“No, no, I just want to ask you about how you did in the exam.”
“Oh.” Xie Ying gathered her bangs, “I can’t remember, anyway, it’s normal level.”
Cheng Yin then asked: “The first in the class level?”
Xie Ying wagged her index finger. “The first in the whole major level.”
Cheng Yin was silent for a while, and said with a downcast look, “I have two courses with over 60 points and ranked ninth in the class.”
“It’s OK.” Xie Ying thought what was wrong with it, “Quite normal, for the one is admitted to a university with poor learning ability.”
That’s true, but Cheng Yin has forgotten her history of being a poor student since she got into college.
She hugged her heavy bag, felt the hard stuff inside, and said, “I feel so useless. Chen Yan is number one in everything, and I’m even falling out of the top ten in exams.”
Xie Ying was silent and said to herself, “It’s good that he likes you. It’s not like you can be together if you’re matched.”
However, Cheng Yin is not on the same channel as Xie Ying. She touched the gold medal in her bag and said to Xie Ying, “What do you think about me becoming a sports reporter in the future?”
“It’s tiring. Follow the competition everywhere.”
“I don’t care.”
As she spoke, Cheng Yin looked up and saw Cheng Sheng carrying a small suitcase and walking towards the boarding gate.
“Eh?” Cheng Yin stood up and waved, “Brother!”
Cheng Sheng looked over in search of sound and swept his gaze over Xie Ying on the side.
When he walked up to Cheng Yin, he heard his sister ask, “Why are you here?”
“Going on a field trip.” Cheng Sheng took the tickets and nodded towards Xie Ying as a greeting, “You guys be careful on the way, remember to report safe when you land, my boarding time is up, I’m going over first.”
Cheng Yin thought Cheng Sheng had reversed his decision to go home with her, but he didn’t expect it to be an accidental encounter, so she nodded disappointedly. “Yes, I understand.”
After Cheng Sheng left, Xie Ying kept sitting quietly.
Cheng Yin is familiar with her, but there is nothing to say.
Cheng Yin waited impatiently, and was tired of playing with her phone, so she paced in place for two steps and sat down next to Xie Ying.
“Let’s talk for a while.”
“What to talk about?”
The two have anything to say in WeChat, now suddenly have to find a topic to talk, it is a little difficult.
After thinking for half a day, Cheng Yin found a universal topic.
“Soon to be a sophomore. Have you ever met a boy you like in school?”
Xie Ying froze, rolled her eyes and said, “No.”
“Why?” Cheng Yin is puzzled. Is Xie Ying this person become immortal? Completely immune?
“You’re so annoying, don’t ask.”
“Tell me about it.” Cheng Yin pestered her, “Is it because no one studies better than you? You can’t stand it?”
Xie Ying responded, “Yes.”
“Not right.” Cheng Yin muttered again, “My brother is from your school. His studies are not worse than yours.”
Xie Ying did not speak, unscrewed the mineral water bottle and drank a large mouthful.
Just a few seconds, Cheng Yin agreed with Xie Ying not to answer this question, and asked: “Then have you ever liked anyone in high school?”
The mineral water bottle in her hand shook, almost spilling out.
Xie Ying tightened the lid. “Yes.”
Cheng Yin’s eyes lit up at once. “Who?!”
“…… Xie Ying, you pervert.”
“Time for boarding.” Xie Ying picked up her bag and grabbed Cheng Yin’s hand. “Let’s go.”
Once on the plane, Cheng Yin fell asleep.
Xie Ying opened the sun shield and looked out the window, her eyes calm.
In fact, besides Cheng Yin, when others ask this question, she was not answered in the same way.
The other girls in the dormitory often talk about such topics, about their crushes on boys, about their failed first love, about the seniors they are chasing.
When it is Xie Ying’s turn, she will also talk about her love for a senior, about the scenery of the first meeting, about the most out-of-the-ordinary thing she has done in her life is to sneak out of the house at night to go to the boxing gym on Riverside Road, about the day after the college entrance exam, she found the phone number of that person from her best friend’s phone and sent a text message over.
After a long night, only to wait for a sentence, “Thank you for your love, I did not feel the same way.”
For her, that person is a topic of conversation among the girls, and makes her youth less blank, that’s all.
Cheng Yin welcomed the first summer vacation in the university.
Just like the vacation after the college entrance exam, no homework, no extra classes, so bored that do not know what to do.
The only thing to look forward to is Chen Yan has a competition in August in the next city, two hours by train. He said he would take Cheng Yin there.
Cheng Yin has never been to the game site, so she made a countdown.
The day before the competition was the weekend, Cheng Yin got up early and watched her mother make breakfast in the kitchen.
Cheng Sheng is rarely free to come back. His mother is especially up early in the morning to make breakfast for him.
Cheng Sheng brushed his teeth and walked to the kitchen, intending to look and leave, but was called by his mother.
“You pack up, you send Cheng Yin to the high-speed train station later.”
Cheng Sheng leaned on the refrigerator with a toothbrush in his mouth. “Go where?”
It was also hard for Cheng Yin to understand what he said.
“Go to Jiangcheng.”
“Play?” Cheng Sheng pulled out his toothbrush and said lazily, “Go play with your boyfriend?”
Cheng’s mother’s ability to grasp the point has always been very strong, turned her head and asked, “You have a boyfriend?”
“No, no!” Cheng Yin pushed Cheng Sheng. “Don’t listen to his nonsense!”
Cheng Sheng stood still. “Twenty years old. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Mom, your daughter has found you a son-in-law who is outstanding.”
Cheng Yin’s face was so red that it could drip blood, and her mother knew what was going on at first glance, putting down the kitchen knife and walking up to Cheng Yin, “Tell your mother about it.”
Cheng Yin can no longer be defensive. She is not a person who can lie and can only glare at Cheng Sheng.
“Who told you?”
Cheng Sheng spread his hands, “He told me himself.”
“What are you talking about?” Cheng’s mother asked. “Tell me what kind of person he is. Is he handsome?”
Cheng Sheng held a toothbrush in his hand, looked at Cheng Yin in a good way, showing her to speak.
Cheng Yin’s neck was red, spitting one word at a time: “Just, just last year’s National Day, I drank too much, the one who sent me back at night.”
Cheng’s mother recalled a moment, a sentence summed up: “Oh, he was very handsome.”
Cheng Sheng: “……”
This mother and daughter are equally superficial.
Later at breakfast, her own parents besieged Cheng Yin, and opened a seminar as if she had to recount everything.
It was difficult to survive until the departure time. Cheng Yin picked up the suitcase and ran.
When she left the house, her mother shouted at the door: “Have fun, you have nothing to do at home anyway, you can play for two more days, remember to take a video of the game for mom.”
At the end, added a sentence: “Pay attention to safety!”
This sentence is very normal, but because Cheng Sheng laughed at the side, Cheng Yin was bashful and could not raise her head.
Cheng Yin just wanted to leave quickly.
When she got into the car, Cheng Yin slammed a fist on Cheng Sheng’s shoulder.
“Why are you talking so much?”
Cheng Sheng looked at Cheng Yin. “Why can’t I say? As an adult, don’t act like you’re having an affair. You still want to hide it from your parents?”
It’s not that she wants to hide it, she’s just shy.
“I don’t care. In the future, I will say my own things. Don’t you talk too much!”
Cheng Sheng snorted and stepped on the gas.
When they arrived at the high-speed train station, Cheng Sheng got off to carry Cheng Yin’s suitcase and sent her to the ticket gate.
Cheng Yin took the ticket and grabbed her luggage from Cheng Sheng’s hand. “I’m leaving.”
“Oh.” Cheng Sheng said, “Pay attention to safety, well, safety in all aspects.”
Because of the smile before leaving, Cheng Yin always felt that there was something special about what Cheng Sheng said.
When she looked up, she saw him smiling.
“You shut up!” Cheng Yin did not forget to step on his foot before leaving. “Crazy!”
Until she turned around and went into the ticket gate, Cheng Yin’s heartbeat still didn’t slow down.
If it wasn’t for Cheng Sheng talking like that, Cheng Yin herself didn’t even realize how special this trip was.
This is their first time spending the night outside.
But on second thought, the entire team was there, and they were not alone.
Cheng Yin was less nervous and got on the high-speed train and arrived at the destination.
Because before the game Chen Yan can not go out, so Cheng Yin took a taxi to the hotel by herself.
Chen Yan was waiting for her.
The cab is still parking, and Chen Yan is already walking towards her.
When the car door opened, Cheng Yin jumped out of the car. Chen Yan was surprised by her.
“Hmm.” Chen Yan buried his head and rubbed his chin against her hair. “I’ll take you up.”
Cheng Yin didn’t have to ask anything, just follow Chen Yan.
He took her to the lobby, checked in, and went straight up to the fifth floor.
The moment the room card is swiped open, Cheng Yin peeked a head in to look.
Inside is a round bed, the top covered with a layer of pink curtain.
There are also a few roses in the middle of the bed.
How does it look …… not quite like an ordinary room?
Chen Yan also froze for a moment, then carried the suitcase in.
Said nothing and put her suitcase into the storage cabinet.
Looking back, his girlfriend was still standing at the door, red-faced.
“You come in.”
Cheng Yin moved a step and whispered, “Are you …… staying here tonight too?”
Chen Yan straightened up, his face hidden behind the red gauze curtain, and only his deep voice came through.
“What do you think?”
“I think it will be okay.”
Cheng Yin walked over with big steps, feigning grandeur and sitting on the edge of the bed, patting it. “After all, such a big bed. It’s too wasteful to sleep alone.”
Chen Yan came out from behind the screen curtain and leaned down close to Cheng Yin.
The sudden meeting of breaths brushed on the face.
Cheng Yin leaned back.
“Don’t you think it’s right?”
“You’re right.” Chen Yan said, “But we have been arranged on the fourth floor, so I’ve let you disappointed.”
Cheng Yin let out a long breath.
In the next second, she stared at Chen Yan again with wide eyes.
