Whispering To You - Chapter 58(End)
In the second semester of her third year, Cheng Yin passed the interview for Jinzhou TV and became an intern for the sports channel.
After a month of odd jobs at the station, she got a practical assignment, following a senior to the national fencing championship.
But Cheng Yin didn’t tell Chen Ran.
In the past two years, whenever Chen Ran went to the competition, as long as she was free, he would take her with him.
But there were still a lot of problems during this period, so Cheng Yin wanted to give Chen Ran a surprise this time.
Before leaving, Chen Ran asked her once again if she wanted to go to the competition site.
Cheng Yin said she was very busy and could not go this time.
Chen Ran is disappointed, and Cheng Yin has a ‘helpless’ look. The reporter was busy too.
On the day of the competition, Cheng Yin followed her seniors to the competition site using the station’s car.
This time, she could enter the arena with her work permit and had an exclusive seat.
But they gave her and the seniors a poor seat in the corner, barely able to observe the entire view.
And Chen Ran was sure she was not coming, so he did not look at the audience at all.
What Cheng Yin did not expect was Chen Ran had lost today’s game.
One unexpected mistake was made, and the opponent was returned with two shifts.
The audience was sighing.
Cheng Yin is like being poured a pot of cold water on the head, but soon she calmed down.
It’s okay, it’s a competition, there are winners and losers.
Cheng Yin took her work card and squeezed into the backstage, and found reporters had already surrounded Chen Ran.
They stretched several microphones in front of him, and scrambled to ask questions, fearing that Chen Ran would not hear their questions.
The questions were, “What do you think about losing the game today?” “What do you think is the reason for this loss?” “Is the loss of this game related to the change of coach?”
Chen Ran swept his gaze across the crowd and said without emotion, “There are always losses and wins in a game.”
Then he turned around and left.
Cheng Yin stood in place and saw his back was as upright as ever, but his head hung slightly.
It was until the press had dispersed that Cheng Yin had the opportunity to find Chen Ran.
But the staff stopped her in the backstage, saying that the press can not enter now.
Cheng Yin pestered for a long time and also gave her ID card to the staff before she got a chance.
But when she went in, the backstage lounge was empty.
A cleaner walked by with a bucket, looked at Cheng Yin and said that people had already left through the back door.
After losing the match, they didn’t even go through the front door.
At the height of summer in July, Cheng Yin stood in front of the stadium for a while.
When Chen Ran hangs the gold medal for her, she is proud of it, but at this moment she also feels the loss.
She saw all of Chen Ran’s efforts in these years, and all of his sweat and medals.
Cheng Yin made a phone call to Chen Ran under the sun, and the other side picked up.
“Ah Yin, what’s wrong?”
Cheng Yin pulled out a smile and asked, “Ugh, my boyfriend lost today, eh?”
Chen Ran on the other end was silent for a moment, his tone revealing a helpless smile. “Why does it feel you’re still happy?”
Cheng Yin said, “No, no, you heard it wrong. I don’t care if you win or not, I just want to ask when you are free.”
“I got paid. The first money in Miss Cheng Yin’s life, so I want to ask Mr. Chen Ran, when are you available to accompany your Yin Yin to squander this large sum of money?”
“Squander? How many tens of thousands of ah?”
Cheng Yin let out a long breath. “A full two thousand three hundred and twenty-one.”
Chen Ran couldn’t help but laugh, “That’s enough to squander.”
“So, when do you have time? Yin Yin wants to arrange a perfect date for you.”
Saturday was the day after tomorrow, and Cheng Yin went back to school and started making preparations.
Since she went to the TV station for her internship, she didn’t move out to live. She went back and forth every day. Her parents felt sorry for her, but they gave her more living expenses.
Cheng Yin is a person who spends money without counting, at the beginning of the month she bought a bunch of clothes, then sent gifts to two friends in a row for their birthdays, and because she took her salary, she gave gifts to her parents and Cheng Sheng, and now there are only two thousand yuan left in the card.
But when she thought of arranging a date for Chen Ran, she wanted to give him everything good.
On Saturday afternoon, Cheng Yin wore her new dress and fixed her hair in front of the dormitory’s full-length mirror. When she went out, He Luyue stuffed over an umbrella.
“It’s going to rain tonight.”
Cheng Yin put the umbrella into her bag and went out in the sun.
Chen Ran was waiting for her at the meeting place, and when they met, Cheng Yin’s forehead was sweating again.
She is a sweat-prone body, and will sweat even if she walks on the road for a few minutes in summer.
Chen Ran knows her, so he bought a juice for her in advance.
When she came, she was served to her mouth.
Cheng Yin took a sip, quenched her thirst, thought of something, looked up and asked, “How much is this cup of juice?”
Chen Ran took a slow sip. “Why?”
“You tell me how much it costs first.”
“Fifteen? What’s wrong?”
Cheng Yin took the phone and transferred fifteen yuan to Chen Ran.
“I said I’ll make the arrangements today. I’m a working person. You’re not allowed to spend a single penny today.”
“Not even a penny?”
“Okay then, from now on, I’ll eat soft food and not pay a single penny.” Chen Ran put his arm around her shoulder. “Then how is Miss Cheng Yin going to accommodate me today?”
“First, I’ll take you to have fun.”
Thinking of Chen Ran’s lost back after the game that day, Cheng Yin decided to make him happy, so she booked two tickets to the amusement park, and played the go-kart roller coaster with great pleasure, it was obvious that Chen Ran had lost a bit of frustration.
From the amusement park they went to eat, Cheng Yin booked a restaurant again and made sure that Chen Ran ate and drank with her.
In the evening, she booked online tickets for the Happy Flower play, and Cheng Yin was afraid that they could not see clearly in the back row, so she booked two front row tickets in advance.
This time, Cheng Yin only has six hundred left in her pocket.
But the good thing is that today’s activities have been successfully completed, and judging from Chen Ran’s mood, she is very satisfied with her arrangements today.
There were more people, so Chen Ran held Cheng Yin and strolled out.
“Are you happy today?”
“Why do you ask that?”
Cheng Yin shook his arm. “Tell me, are you happy?”
“You never asked this before.” Chen Ran said, “I thought you know I am always happy with you.”
“Today is different.”
“How is it different?”
Cheng Yin thought about it, “Forget it, as long as you are happy.”
The two walked out of the theater, but found it was pouring rain outside.
Hundreds of people came out from the theater, part of them went to the car, the others can only wait for a taxi in the eaves.
At this time of the year, the cabs on the road are very sought after, and there are almost no vacant ones passing by.
And the online cab is even more terrible. Ten o’clock is the peak of the end of the day, and then there is heavy rain, Cheng Yin lined up to over one hundred and eighty.
“It’s over, it’s over.” Cheng Yin can’t help but chant, “Have to wait for so long, going back at least needs half an hour. I’m sure I can’t be in time.”
Cheng Yin’s dormitory closes at eleven o’clock every day.
It’s not that you can’t get in if the door is closed, but the aunt of their building is aggressive, and every time a student comes back late and asks her to open the door, she has to put up a fight and let the student beg and plead at the door before she comes out and opens the door.
The door was opened, but the name had to be registered and she had to be scolded, and then she had to report it to the counselor the next day.
“Why are they not moving at all?” Cheng Yin looked at the queue information on her phone. Ten minutes had passed, and it was still over 150. “How long is this going to take?”
Chen Ran ignored the other. He lowered his head, saw Cheng Yin’s white cloth shoes have become covered with rain, and the inside must be wet.
“Then don’t go back.”
Chen Ran spoke.
“Huh?” Cheng Yin asked in surprise, “What?”
Chen Ran brought her into his arms to avoid her being splashed by the rain again.
“I said, don’t go back tonight, okay?”
Ten minutes later, Cheng Yin and Chen Ran appeared in the hotel’s lobby next to the theater.
Looking at the price list on the wall, Cheng Yin regretted that she had just emphasized with Chen Ran when she came in, “Today you’re not allowed to spend a single penny!”
Now she has some …… embarrassment in her pocket.
And this hotel is quite expensive, the single room starts at six hundred, her money is only enough to open one.
After that summer vacation, Chen Ran never slept with Cheng Yin.
This kind of thing, Chen Ran does not ask, Cheng Yin more unlikely to mention.
However, sometimes she would like to go to the archives of their training center to look at Chen Ran’s medical report.
She just thinks he is still young. It is better to seek medical help early.
Cheng Yin turned back, Chen Ran was standing lazily, looked over, Cheng Yin immediately twisted her neck back and slapped her ID card to the counter.
“Open a standard room.”
The staff said, “Sorry, our standard room is full-booked today.”
Cheng Yin choked, “Then let’s have a king room.”
“Okay, six hundred and thirty-five. No deposit, Alipay or WeChat?”
“Okay, may I ask if you’re checking in alone?”
Cheng Yin pointed to Chen Ran at the back, “And him.”
“Then please ask that gentleman to register his ID card as well.”
Cheng Yin turned back and waved at Chen Ran.
He came over and took out his ID card before Cheng Yin could say anything.
After checking in, Cheng Yin took Chen Ran upstairs.
Cheng Yin took off her shoes after entering and took her soaked socks and went straight to the bathroom.
A few minutes later, she poked her head out of the bathroom.
“I’ll take a shower first oh.”
Chen Ran was looking at his phone on the sofa and nodded without looking up.
Cheng Yin got into the bathroom, ready to undress, when she found a serious problem.
The bathroom is transparent!
It’s right in front of the couch where Chen Ran is sitting.
Cheng Yin: “……”
Should she bathe or not?
A few minutes passed, the sound of water still did not ring in the bathroom.
Chen Ran raised his head and looked at Cheng Yin through the glass in front of the bathtub.
“Are you still not washing?”
Cheng Yin: “……”
She remained frozen.
Chen Ran looked down at his phone, but the corner of his mouth was tinged with a smile.
“I’m going out to buy a bottle of water.”
There were two bottles of mineral water on the table. What are you buying?
However, Cheng Yin knew that Chen Ran was intentional, so she nodded her head and said yes.
When Chen Ran returned with the water, Cheng Yin was already lying on the bed with her back to him, curled up into a shrimp.
He walked to the bedside, bent down and said in Cheng Yin’s ear, “Asleep?”
Cheng Yin closed her eyes and said nothing.
“Then I’m going to take a shower.”
Not long after, the sound of water rang out in the bathroom.
Cheng Yin could not calm down.
Every time she closed her eyes, her mind was filled with Chen Ran, who was taking a bath.
Thus, when Chen Ran finished bathing and came out, Cheng Yin lying on the bed and hold her red face.
However, her eyes were closed and she could not see Chen Ran’s expression, so she could pretend that nothing had happened.
Chen Ran’s breath soon came from the bed.
Cheng Yin turned over and continued to turn her back on him.
There was no movement behind her for a long time, and she didn’t know what Chen Ran was doing, not talking, not lying down, and not turning off the lights.
Cheng Yin even felt a burning gaze behind her back.
Cheng Yin’s cell phone on the pillow rang.
The repetitive ringtone is like a magic sound.
At first Cheng Yin pretended not to hear, but the ringing stopped for a few seconds and rang again.
“Are you going to answer it? I’ll answer it for you if you don’t.”
Chen Yan said.
Cheng Yin: “……”
She opened her eyes, picked up the phone and put it to her ear, as if she had just “fallen asleep” and was just meditating.
The phone call was from He Luyue, asking her why she hadn’t returned to the dorm yet.
“I’m not coming back tonight.”
“ Hmm ……”
“ Hmm ……”
“I’m hanging up.”
This less than fifteen-second phone call shattered Cheng Yin’s pretense into glass crumbs.
It turned out that Chen Ran had been sitting on the bed watching her.
“Then you come over.”
Before Cheng Yin could react, Chen Ran hugged her and kissed her earlobe.
“Ah Yin, it’s time.”
Cheng Yin will not be stupid enough to ask what “time”.
She just stiffened and didn’t move, allowing Chen Ran’s kiss to spread from her earlobe to her collarbone.
Later, she became a little disoriented and heard Chen Ran ask in her ear, “Is it okay?”
Cheng Yin did not answer and gently bite his shoulder.
Tonight’s rain is getting heavier and thunderous.
The curtains are lightly flicked, shaking the milky white light flowing on Cheng Yin’s white and delicate skin.
When the ‘rain’ stopped, Chen Ran got out of bed to drink water.
Cheng Yin lying in bed, refused to have a shower.
Just a few minutes of Chen Ran drinking water, she fell into dreamland.
Chen Ran picked up her clothes from the floor and hung them in the closet and saw a blue tag in Cheng Yin’s bag.
Chen Ran pulled it out and looked and his gaze became more tender.
This work card, clearly written the date, occasion and place.
He looked at it for a long time in the light, then returned to the bed, embraced Cheng Yin into his arms, and kissed her forehead.
“Why are you so cute, baby?”
