Nian Xiaomu: “…”
One should always keep a clear conscience.
When one committed a bad deed, it was easy to blow one’s cover.
“Your set meal for couples is here. Bon appetit.” The waiter placed the food on the table.
When Yu Yuehan heard the words “set meal for couples,” his eyes flickered as a warm glow lit up on his face.
After making a narrow escape, Nian Xiaomu muttered under her breath, “Told you it’s a special surprise for you, but you didn’t want to believe me.”
Hearing this, Yu Yuehan turned around and planted a peck on her cheek. “Good girl.”
Then, he straightened his body slowly and walked calmly to the other side of the table before pulling a chair out and sitting down.
Picking up the cutlery without eating anything yet, Yu Yuehan looked over at Nian Xiaomu and said, “I remember someone leaving home this morning and declaring that she would not bother with me anymore.”
“Yet, she suddenly asked me out for dinner and even planned surprises for me now. I’m more afraid that they would turn into shocks instead.”
“…” It was too stressful to have a conversation with intelligent people!
Nian Xiaomu forced out a smile and pretended that she did not hear anything. She continued to chat with him about food and surprises.
When the cocktails were served, Nian Xiaomu even went through once more the script that she had written down.
Her plan was so perfect that she wanted to give herself a thumbs up!
“Cheers to us.” Yu Yuehan raised the cocktail glass and took a sip, narrowing his eyes as he took in the taste.
It was not like he had not noticed that she was feeling troubled.
Since she was not willing to speak, he would wait and see how long she could hold it in for.
Very quickly, they had finished their meal and drank their wine.
“There is a final surprise. Close your eyes!” Nian Xiaomu frantically yelled at Yu Yuehan when she caught sight of the waiter approaching them with a plate.
Hearing this, Yu Yuehan was dumbstruck, but he immediately broke into a sneer as he teased, “Nian Xiaomu, are you copying what other people do with chocolate sauce or salad dressing? Did you write something on the plate as a surprise for me?”
Nian Xiaomu: “…!!”
Was it too late for her to ask the waiter to take the plate away now?
She didn’t want to give it to him anymore!
“Mr. Yu, this is the present that your girlfriend prepared specially for you. Here’s wishing the two of you an everlasting love.” The waiter had already placed the decorated plate in front of Yu Yuehan.
Nian Xiaomu tried to grab it from him, but he easily locked her hand in his hand as he picked up the plate with his other hand.
There were four simple Chinese words on it: Nian Nian You Yu.
This meant: “The Yu couple is here, year after year.”
Yu Yuehan: “…”
Yu Yuehan was instantly stunned by what he saw.
After reading the words carefully, the meaning behind the words suddenly struck him. His gaze became hot and intense.
Nian Xiaomu and Yu Yuehan.
Nian Nian You Yu (The Yu couple is here, year after year).
From now, they would be the Yu couple.
Yu Yuehan’s lips curled upward into a devilish grin.
“Didn’t you say that this is so cheesy? Give it back to me!” Seeing the smirk on Yu Yuehan’s face, Nian Xiaomu assumed that he must be laughing at her, so she tried to snatch her plate back.
To think that she had put in so much effort to confess her love for him.
Not only did he not appreciate it, he was even mocking her.
She decided that she would take her present back from him!
“Nian Xiaomu, how can you take back what you have given away?” Yu Yuehan held her hand down as he waved for the service staff to come over.
“I’m buying this plate. Wrap it up for me and make sure you do not ruin the words on it. I’m taking it with me.”
“Well… Okay.” The waiter picked up the plate carefully and walked away to handle it.
Nian Xiaomu did not expect that Yu Yuehan would want to keep a plate that she had casually written on.
