He pushed his head lower and tried his best not to let his emotions show. When she was not looking, a single tear still escaped his control and fell gently on the cream on the cake, creating a small indent.
Su Zhinian finished the cake on his plate and placed the spoon down. Then, with his face lowered, he calmed his emotions before leaning on the chair and slowly raising his eyes to look at Song Qingchun, who sat across from him.
There was a small piece of cake left on Song Qingchun's plate. She was picking at it with her fork before she sent it into her mouth when she realized he was looking at her. She mumbled something at him, but he didn't catch it because her mouth was full with food. She munched the food and smiled to him before she swallowed the cake, took a sip of the warm milk tea, and cleared her throat. "I was saying that I'm full from the cake alone, but it'll be such a waste if we just leave these dishes untouched."
Su Zhinian stared at Song Qingchun, and after a moment, he said, "Don't worry about it."
Song Qingchun frowned with consternation looking at the table of untouched food. "But, this is such a waste; we should at least take a few bites."
Su Zhinian stared at Song Qingchun's small face without blinking, and he still said nothing.
Song Qingchun thought about how Su Zhinian didn't know how to cook, so she raised her head to discuss it with him. "How about you take them home with you?"
Still staring with extreme focus at her, Su Zhinian did not respond, not even with a nod or shake of his head.
Song Qingchun was confused by his stare. Her brows moved and was about to ask him what was wrong when Su Zhinian opened his lips to call her name. "Qingchun."
His tone was light, and in his levity was a solemnity that could not be mistaken. Song Qingchun's heart skipped a beat hearing him say her name, and after a moment, she replied, "Hmm?"
Su Zhinian did not answer her in a hurry. He continued to look at her with his intense gaze. Just as Song Qingchun thought he was not going to say anything, he uttered, "Qingchun"
He called her name again, but this time, his tone was much lighter, and he didn't pause. The light at the bottom of his eyes turned very serious as he continued, "I'm sorry."
The apology that was apropos to nothing confused Song Qingchun. She let out a "huh?" before turning to blink several times at Su Zhinian and adding, "For what?"
Su Zhinian did not answer her question but repeated, "I'm sorry."
His expression and tone were so serious that Song Qingchun felt compelled to sit up straight and focus.
She did not ask why this time but stared at him in return. After about ten seconds, he said, "For what happened six years ago, I'm really sorry."
Actually, he had been meaning to find the opportunity to apologize to her. He really didn't mean to do what he did. However, since that incident six years ago, too many things had happened, and he couldn't find a good time to sincerely apologize to her.
What happened six years ago Even though Su Zhinian did not go into the details, Song Qingchun understood he was referring to the night he got drunk and raped her.
