Chapter 48

       After Ning Junyan said that, he propped his head up with one hand, lay on his side and looked down at Chen Yuncheng. He wanted to take a closer look at Chen Yuncheng’s expression.

       Chen Yuncheng turned back to look at the ceiling again, not looking at him, his eyes seemed to be covered with mist, and the redness around his ears also spread to the corners of his eyes, he did not answer Ning Junyan’s question, and said, “I want to sleep now.”

       Ning Junyan gave an “En”, with a thin smile in his eyes, “Go to sleep.”

       Chen Yuncheng closed his eyes.

       Ning Junyan leaned close to his ear again this moment, and said softly, “Your face is all red, are you too hot? Can I help you take off your clothes?”

       After he said that, he reached out to take off the sweater on Chen Yuncheng’s body. Chen Yuncheng was lying on the bed, so it was a bit difficult to take off his clothes, Ning Junyan was very patient and used his hand to support his back, saying, “Lift up some, be a good boy.”

       Chen Yuncheng moved a bit, and suddenly sat up with his hands, staggering to climb out of bed, he said, “I haven’t taken a shower yet.”

       Ning Jun stretched his arms around his waist and dragged him back, “No need to take shower, let’s go to sleep.” Following the movement of him getting up, after taking off the sweater, he also took off his trousers.

       Chen Yuncheng kept being uncooperative and said that he needs to take a bath.

       He was left with a pair of underwear all over his body, so Ning Jun Yan took him in his arms, pulled the quilt over to cover him, and took a deep breath with his face against his neck, “You don’t need to wash it, I like your smell.”

       Chen Yuncheng was tired of struggling and panted slightly with a red face.

       Ning Junyan extended his hand to turn off the desk lamp, kissed him lightly on the forehead, and said, “Sleep now, good night.”

       Early the next morning, Chen Yuncheng was woken up by the need to pee. When he woke up, he still had a headache because of the hangover, but he soon couldn’t care less because he found himself sleeping on Ning Junyan’s bed, wearing only a pair of underwear all over his body, and Ning Junyan was right behind him, one arm wrapped around his waist to hold him tightly.

       Chen Yuncheng moved a little and Ning Junyan woke up, the arm immediately bound him even tighter, and his body pressed up against him impermeably.

       Although Ning Junyan was wearing pyjamas, his pyjamas were thin, and his body’s reaction in the morning1morning wood *cough* was clearly conveyed to Chen Yuncheng.

       Chen Yuncheng was even more anxious to leave.

       Ning Junyan used both hands to hug him to prevent him from getting up, and said in a fierce tone, “Don’t leave!”

       Chen Yuncheng said awkwardly, “You are hard.”

       With his eyes still closed, Ning Junyan said calmly, “Because I’m a healthy adult man.”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t know what to say, so he could only say, “Let go of me first, I want to pee.”

       Ning Junyan heard the words, put his arms around Chen Yuncheng’s hand and touched it down.

       Chen Yuncheng broke out in a cold sweat, quickly grabbed Ning Junyan’s hand, and said, “What are you doing?”

       Ning Junyan rubbed his nose against the back of Chen Yuncheng’s neck, “Try to see if you really want to pee, so I can carry you there.”

       Chen Yuncheng felt that he was going crazy, “Stop making trouble.”

       Ning Junyan asked him, “Do you remember what you said last night?”

       Chen Yuncheng said without thinking, “No, I don’t.”

       Ning Junyan then said, “You said you wanted to be my wife.”

       Chen Yuncheng instantly blushed as he broke away from Ning Junyan’s embrace and turned around to look at him, saying in a good-natured and amused manner, “When did I say that?”

       Ning Junyan said, “You don’t remember what you said? How do you know you didn’t say it?”

       Chen Yuncheng was speechless for a while, he actually probably remembered the conversation between the two last night, he just lost his ability to think and was not unconscious at that time, even if he really didn’t remember, he didn’t believe he would say such things out loud.

       His bladder was about to explode, Chen Yuncheng didn’t want to continue to bicker with Ning Junyan, and he didn’t want to get out of bed in just a pair of underwear, so he sat up and looked for his clothes.

       Last night Ning Junyan had taken off his clothes and thrown them on his side of the bedside table. Chen Yuncheng had to pull the quilt to cover his lower body, and went over Ning Junyan to reach for his clothes.

       Ning Junyan lay down and watched him struggle. He had no intention of helping in the slightest and said nonchalantly, “Don’t worry, forcing sex on you without your consent is rape, I won’t do that, I don’t want you to be upset.”

       Chen Yuncheng finally got his trousers, he turned around and covered Ning Junyan’s mouth, and said, “Stop talking about it!” Chen Yuncheng’s face was still red as he said that.

       Ning Junyan looked at him calmly.

       Chen Yuncheng let go of his hand slowly, sat on the edge of the bed and put on his trousers, before he even had time to pull the zipper, he ran outside in a hurry.

       He went to the bathroom to urinate, and then sat on the toilet cover and covered his face with his hands for a long time in a daze. He still remembered that he took the initiative to go to Ning Junyan’s room. Although he knew he hadn’t said anything about being a wife to Ning Junyan, alcohol was still not a good thing. He had woken up with his worries still in place, and he had gotten himself into more trouble.

       Chen Yuncheng took a shower and changed his clothes. When he came out of the bathroom, he saw Ning Junyan put on his coat and was changing shoes at the entrance. He walked over and asked, “Going to work so early?”

       Ning Junyan said, “I’m going to buy you breakfast.” After he said that, he reached out and hooked his hand over the back of Chen Yuncheng’s neck and gave him a kiss on the forehead, before leaving the house.

       Chen Yuncheng stood in place for a while, raising his hand to gently press his chest.

       After breakfast, Chen Yuncheng followed Ning Junyan to the hospital.

       The police had notified Gu Yaojia about Zhou Yan’s criminal detention, and Gu Yaojia seemed more silent than usual. She sat and chatted with Chen Yuncheng in the ward for a long time before finally saying to Chen Yuncheng, “I’ll take him back to the hometown once Qiqi is discharged.”

       Chen Yuncheng was not surprised, he just asked, “Has the decision been made?”

       Gu Yaojia nodded, “I can’t live here alone with him.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “I understand.” He asked Gu Yaojia again, “Do you hate Zhou Yan?”

       Gu Yaojia lowered her head and gently picked her nails, “Sometimes, I can’t tell. But Cheng ge, I’m not going to wait for him to come out.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “I understand.”

       Gu Yaojia didn’t say anything more, she just repeated again, “Thank you, Cheng ge.”

       When Chen Yuncheng came out of the hospital, he received a call that someone wanted to rent the space of his kiosk.

       The other party had already seen the kiosk and was waiting for him there, so Chen Yuncheng had no choice but to take a taxi and rush over there.

       The kiosk was looked at by a middle-aged couple from out of town. They wanted to rent it out to open a small shop selling braised vegetables and deli food. The owner of the lottery shop had opened the door to let them see how it looked inside. They thought it was okay, after all, the nearby were all residential areas, and no matter the people’s age, everyone always needs to eat. It was common to buy one or two braised vegetable dishes to add to your meal when you have guests at home or are late from work.

       Chen Yuncheng knew that they also felt that the rent here was relatively cheap, so they spent a lot of time negotiating the price with each other. Chen Yuncheng didn’t want to be too eager and finally said that everyone should go back and think about it, and there was no need to rush to finalise it.

       The middle-aged couple expressed a little regret at not being able to persuade Chen Yuncheng at that time.

       It was already past one o’clock in the afternoon, and Chen Yuncheng was thirsty and hungry, so he went to buy a bottle of water nearby and ordered a bowl of beef noodles from the noodle shop he used to frequent.

       It was past meal time, and the owner of the noodle shop was free and sat next to Chen Yuncheng to chat with him.

       The whole street knew about the smashing of Chen Yuncheng’s kiosk incident. The boss asked him what he planned to do after closing the kiosk. Chen Yuncheng said that he hadn’t figured it out yet.

       The boss said, “Your friend who drives the Land Rover is a big boss, right? Are you planning to do business with him in the future?”

       Chen Yuncheng had already finished drinking half of the bottle of water, tightened the cap, and said, “No, I’ll just wait and see.”

       As he saw that Chen Yuncheng didn’t want to say anything, the boss sat for a while before getting up and leaving.

       Just as Chen Yuncheng’s noodles were served, his cell phone rang again, this time it was from Boss Sun who he used to pick up the goods from.

       “Sun ge?” Chen Yuncheng’s noodles were not evenly mixed, so he inserted his chopsticks into the noodle bowl and answered the phone first.

       As soon as Boss Sun heard his voice, he asked, “What did you think about the matter I told you last time to meet my niece?”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t expect that the other party hadn’t given up yet, so he said a little funnily, “Thank you, Sun ge, I’m really not considering it.”

       Boss Sun expressed his dissatisfaction with a “hey”.

       Chen Yuncheng made random excuses, “I’m the only child in my family, and I’m still waiting to pass on the family name, so I can’t be the son-in-law.”

       Boss Sun said, “Fine, let’s forget about it then. Have you found something to do now?”

       “Not yet,” Chen Yuncheng picked up the chopsticks again, and casually stirred in the noodle bowl, “Do you have any job for me?”

       Boss Sun laughed, “Actually, I recently took a shop in the newly built trade market in the north of the city, and I want to open another shop. Are you interested in managing the shop for me?”

       Chen Yuncheng’s expression became more focused, “Are you still selling cigarettes and alcohol?”

       Boss Sun said, “It’s the same as my current store. Wholesale tobacco, alcohol and beverages. You only need to guard the store every day, and then arrange deliveries to customers. If you don’t have enough manpower, you can recruit some yourself. The cost will be deducted, and you will be given a commission according to the turnover, how about it?”

       Chen Yuncheng suddenly didn’t know what to say, he paused before saying, “Sun ge, thank you.”

       Boss Sun’s voice sounded noisy on his end, “What do you mean by thanking me? Can you?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Of course I can. I just want to thank you for remembering me.”

       Boss Sun said, “What is there to thank? You were a small boss, but now and now I’m asking you to come work for me. I’m quite embarrassed to ask. You know that when doing business, the most fearful thing is to meet people who are dishonest. We’ve known each other for so long, I can trust you are an honest person, so I thought of you for the first time. Don’t thank me, if the business over there is doing well, I should thank you.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Still, thank you.”

       Boss Sun laughed, Let’s not talk so much, when are you free, I’ll show you the shop and we’ll slowly talk about it.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “I’m free anytime, just contact me.”

       Boss Sun said okay, and then hung up the phone.

       Chen Yuncheng picked up the chopsticks, tried to stir up the already heaped, and began to eat with big mouthfuls.
