The car was quiet, and neither of them spoke for a while.
Li Zhenruo felt a little stuffy and couldn’t help opening the car window, but the cold air outside rushed in, causing his throat to hurt a little after he took a quick breath.
The driver who drove the car did not look sideways, waiting for the red light and lined up in a regular manner, driving in no hurry.
Li Zhenruo saw the bright red decorations in the shopping mall outside and suddenly realized that it was almost Chinese New Year.
“Can I ask you a question?” Li Zhenran said suddenly at this moment.
Li Zhenruo didn’t look back, his forehead almost pressed against the glass, he said, “Go ask.”
Li Zhenran asked him, “If Zhenruo was still around, how do you think he would accept me again?”
Li Zhenruo had no way to answer this question. The thing with romance, is if everyone could fall in love and pursue someone regardless of everything, and just leave when they no longer felt love, then why would there be so many sad and tactful love songs, and moving love stories?
From that day on the rooftop, Li Zhenruo felt that Li Zhenran probably didn’t fully believe what had happened. Today’s verbal test made him more certain of his judgment.
Since Li Zhenran didn’t believe it anymore, it was pointless for him to work hard to act. All he could do was not compromise so easily. He didn’t want Li Zhenran to think that his deception would be harmless to him in the end and that everything would disappear after a little coaxing, and he didn’t want there to be another deception between them.
Li Zhenruo said, “If he’s no longer afraid of you lying to him, he’ll probably be able to accept you.”
When Li Zhenran heard this answer, he was silent for a moment and asked, “If I give Yunlin to him, do you think he will believe me?”
Li Zhenruo said without hesitation, “He didn’t need it.”
Li Zhenran sighed, “Then what does he need now?”
Li Zhenruo did not answer him.
However, Li Zhenran didn’t need his answer, and continued, “Actually, I know.”
Li Zhenran said, “What he needs is respect, a re-establishment of a relationship of mutual trust.”
Li Zhenruo looked a little dazed, “Re-establish?”
Li Zhenran smiled at him a little, “Didn’t you say that, he said he loved me. I don’t think we’re really over, I think we’ll have a chance to start over.”
Li Zhenruo heard the words, lowered his head and said, “Then bless you.”
Li Zhenran asked the driver to take Li Zhenruo home. When he arrived downstairs in the community, Li Zhenran asked him, “Aren’t you going to invite me up?”
Li Zhenruo stood in front of the car door and turned to look at him, “It’s too late, I won’t delay your rest. Mr. Li, thank you for taking me home.”
Li Zhenran stood beside the car door, put one hand above the car door, and waved to him, “Good night, go to bed early.”
Li Zhenruo turned around and went upstairs. After feeling the blow of the cold wind, he seemed to be sobered a lot. After he returned home and took a bath, Li Zhenruo put the towel on his head and sat on the sofa to read a book.
In fact, he couldn’t quite get into the book, his head was still a bit dizzy and he was still thinking about Li Zhenran’s matters in his head.
Before he went to bed, Li Zhenruo went to the window to draw the curtains. When he looked downstairs, he noticed that there was a car parked downstairs, and it was the same car that Li Zhenran had just sent him back in.
The car hadn’t left yet, and Li Zhenran had not left either. Although he couldn’t see clearly from a distance, Li Zhenruo noticed that a person sitting beside the flower bed was smoking.
Li Zhenruo was stunned for a moment, then took out his mobile phone and called Li Zhenran.
The call was quickly connected, and Li Zhenran’s deep voice sounded, “You haven’t slept yet?”
Li Zhenruo said, “If you don’t go back to sleep, the driver has to sleep too, right?”
Li Zhenran gently laughed, “I just want to stay closer to you. Alright, I’ll go back now, you rest early.”
After he said that, Li Zhenran hung up the phone, got up, walked over and got into the car.
Li Zhenruo stood by the window and kept watching his car leave. He knew that Li Zhenran’s words were deliberately said to him. Li Zhenran was a terrible person. He knew what words were the most touching, but Li Zhenruo couldn’t tell whether it was the truth or not.
But even if it was a lie, Li Zhenruo had to admit that he was moved.
Early the next morning, when Li Zhenruo was still sleeping in the cat’s bed, he was woken up by the doorbell. He struggled to get up from the bed and walked slowly to the door before realizing that he was still a cat, so he changed to the form of an adult. He opened the door and asked, “Who is it?”
The person standing outside the door was Li Zhenran.
Li Zhenruo scratched his head, “What are you doing so early?”
Li Zhenran raised the bag in his hand, “Breakfast for you.”
Li Zhenruo frowned at him, “Why did you buy me breakfast?”
Li Zhenran had walked in, “I told you, this is the body of the person I love the most and don’t want to see him starve and lose weight.”
Li Zhenruo stood by the door, reached out and rubbed his eyes while closing the door, and said, “Did you eat breakfast on time yourself? You look like you’ve lost weight only recently.”
Li Zhenran smiled and put breakfast on the dining table, “I eat on time, I lost weight just because I caught a cold some time ago.”
Li Zhenran said: “It was raining outside that day, and then I got a cold when I went back.”
Li Zhenruo didn’t speak and sat down beside the dining table.
Li Zhenran smiled, “Do you feel sorry?”
Li Zhenruo yawned, “Why should I feel sorry for you, the person who felt sorry for you is no longer there, and he was so angry with you that he reincarnated.”
Li Zhenran still smiled, but he said, “I’m sorry.”
Li Zhenruo did not respond.
At this time, Li Zhenran turned his head and glanced at the cat bed on the ground next to him. There was still a lot of cat hair in it. He said, “You sleep here?”
Li Zhenruo didn’t want to admit that he bought a cat bed to sleep in because she was lazy, but silently took out the soy milk and steamed buns, habitually stuck a straw into the soy milk cup, and took a sip.
Li Zhenran sat across from him and looked at him.
Li Zhenruo saw that there was something else in his pocket, so he reached out and turned it over, but it turned out that there was a can of fish inside, and it was the brand he used to love.
“I brought it from home,” Li Zhenran said, “Zhenruo liked to eat it before.”
Li Zhenruo didn’t want to be so polite to him, so he brought the can over and said, “Thank you.”
Li Zhenran looked at the whole room and asked, “No toilet?”
Li Zhenruo looked up, “It’s inside.”
Li Zhenran said, “I said cat toilet.”
Li Zhenruo bit the bun in his mouth and gave him a cold look, “I don’t need that.”
Li Zhenran said, “Isn’t it inconvenient to go to the toilet in the middle of the night?”
Li Zhenruo was too lazy to answer him.
When he saw that Li Zhenruo had finished his breakfast, Li Zhenran stood up and said, “I’m going to work.”
Li Zhenruo also stood up, and when he followed Li Zhenran to the door, he did not expect Li Zhenran to suddenly turn around and hold his shoulder with his hand, and his head came close.
Li Zhenruo raised his hand to block it subconsciously, and Li Zhenran put his head on Li Zhenruo’s shoulder and whispered in his ear, “Come back.”
After he said that, Li Zhenran let him go and left.
