She had no prior experience, but he had no prior experience either.
When he was preparing her gift the other time, did he ask the people around him incessantly to guess what she would fancy as well?
Was he also looking forward to seeing her reaction?
The only difference between the two of them might be that his gifts were more impressive, but for hers…
As Nian Xiaomu lowered her head, she took a glance at the confession that she had penned down on the plate and smiled until her eyebrows curved.
She was being original with her idea!
They were free!
After Nian Xiaomu passed the plate of words to the service staff, she asked for a glass of water. As she held onto the glass, she sat on the chair nervously and waited.
She watched as the time ticked by.
It was getting closer and closer to their agreed time…
At six o’clock sharp.
Yu Yuehan’s distinguished figure appeared at the entrance of the restaurant.
The long design of Yu Yuehan’s coat elongated his tall and slender body while one of his hands remained tucked in his pocket.
He was almost the focus of everyone present as he scanned the restaurant with his flirtatious eyes.
Even the receptionist lady nearly went cross-eyed when she saw him.
He seemed to be inquiring about something and took a long time to make his way over.
Nian Xiaomu became impatient as she watched on. As she stood up from her seat hurriedly, she waved toward him and said, “I am over here!”
Yu Yuehan lifted his eyes slightly. Without any hesitation, his gaze landed on her exact position. However, he still did not make his way over.
Instead, he parked himself at the reception area.
After waiting for a long while, so long that Nian Xiaomu almost could not take it anymore, a waiter carried a bouquet of flowers and walked toward him.
He passed the bouquet to Yu Yuehan respectfully.
It was only then that Yu Yuehan took the bouquet in satisfaction and strolled toward her.
He passed the bouquet of flowers to her and asked, “Do you like them?”
“… I like them.” As Nian Xiaomu took the flowers from him, her mind that had taken a painfully long time to calm down started to act up again.
When she saw that he was about to remove his coat, she reached out hurriedly and said, “Let me help you!”
As she said that, she reached out and peeled the coat off of Yu Yuehan. Then, she passed it to the service staff.
Following which, she helped him pull a chair out and said, “You can sit. Hurry and sit!”
“You rushed all the way here—are you thirsty? Let me pour a cup of water for you.” After Nian Xiaomu poured him a cup of plain water, she called the service staff over again and ordered some drinks for him.
“It’s okay. Plain water is fine.” As Yu Yuehan opened his mouth lightly, he scanned his gaze past her anxiety-stricken face.
A hint of suspicion showed in his gaze.
“Are you feeling hot then? Let me fan you…” After Nian Xiaomu finished speaking, she suddenly recalled that it was currently winter. The restaurant had already turned on the heating—Why would he be feeling hot?
She had really turned silly from all the nervousness!
She met his probing gaze the moment she lifted her head up.
His thin lips moved slightly, and he said, “Nian Xiaomu, you look like you have done something unfaithful to me from that look of yours.”
Nian Xiaomu: “…!!”
“I, I did not! How could I do something unfaithful to you? I just feel that you were too nice to me, and I have got nothing to repay you with. As such, I followed your example and am treating you to a meal as well in order to surprise you.”
“If I’ve done something unfaithful to you just by doing this, then didn’t you do something unfaithful to me the previous time as well?”
“I was trying to appease you. Forget it if you aren’t happy about it, but you actually suspect me…”
As Nian Xiaomu continued to blabber on, she suddenly realized that he had risen from his seat.
He strolled toward her. Placing his hands on the back of her chair, he lowered his gaze and looked at her.
The two of them were so close together that she could see his long and curly eyelashes.
Just when she was about to ask him what was going on, he opened his mouth slowly and asked, “Did you know that you tend to speak a lot when you have a guilty conscience?”
