Liang Lin’s mouth opened wide in shock, and she thought in hindsight that her expression must have been super awkward at the time.
“I’ve been wondering when you’d see me” Gu Ruichen was still laughing: “But you’ve walked by here several times, looking here and there, but you never looked at me.”
Liang Lin laughed awkwardly and said: “I, I was bored today, so I came out to wander around and pass the time.”
Gu Ruichen nodded and used his index finger to push his glasses back; he then smiled again and said: “I sat here yesterday too.”
Liang Lin was instantly petrified as she heard him continue: “I sat here the day before yesterday as well.”
Liang Lin was completely speechless now.
She didn’t know how to react at all.
She just wished there was a hole in the ground for her to get into.
Gu Ruichen smiled as she lowered her head and blushed, and the two of them didn’t speak for a while.
Finally, he spoke: “The day we met here, you were running so fast that I didn’t have time to ask for your contact information. So I came here the next day to try my luck and see if I could run into you again.”
Liang Lin’s face got even redder, but her heart was about to explode with joy.
Gu Ruichen was even thinking the same thing as her!
“I did see you then, but you turned around and didn’t seem to have noticed me. So I told myself I would come back again tomorrow and see if I can see you again.”
Liang Lin quickly looked up at him and said: “What about you? Why didn’t you call me, then? What if I hadn’t show up the next day? Or the day after?”
“I have your phone number.”
Once again, Gu Ruichen shocked Liang Lin.
He continued: “The day we met, I spent the whole night contacting our classmates that I could reach and finally asked for your phone number. It was just my good luck that I got to see you again the next day and that made me want to see when, exactly, you would be able to notice me.”
Liang Lin desperately said: “I, I don’t have much contact with my former classmates…” so she was stupid enough to run to this street and try to meet him again while looking like a crazy person”
Gu Ruichen smiled : “It doesn’t matter, I can find you.”
He then paused and said: “It’s just that before, I didn’t dare to come to you.”
“I, I just saw the letter written in that book yesterday. I never knew, I’m sorry.”
Liang Lin felt awkward as hell talking about it.
Gu Ruichen rubbed his forehead and said: “So putting it there turned out to be a big mistake. I was wondering if maybe it was not safe to write in that notebook. But when I called you later, you were cold and I certainly thought I was rejected.”
He curled his lips looking pitiful and continued: “I was sad for a long time.”
Liang Lin bit her lip to hold back a smile, how come she didn’t think he was so peevish before.
“That’s because you didn’t make it clear.”
“Yes, yes, it was my fault.” He generously took all the blame for the mistake, and then said:
“But when I saw you here the other day, I suddenly felt that maybe that wasn’t the case.”
“You wore my glasses” He smiled smugly: “After my glasses broke, I looked in many stores and couldn’t find the same ones. But you could find them. They’re still flat.”
Liang Lin blushed and winced as she watched Gu Ruichen take out his phone and dial a number, then he frowned lightly and said to her: “Turn it on.”
“Ah?” She sounded a bit silly.
Gu Ruichen shook the phone in his hand and said again: “Turn it on.”
She finally understood and took her phone out of her bag and turned it on.
Soon after, her phone rang and he said to her: “That’s my number, save it.”
She nodded vigorously and immediately saved it.
He pushed over another small piece of paper, she looked at it and it was a heart shape folded in sugar paper.
He smiled and said: “I’ve been waiting patiently for you to find me; I had to find something to do.”
Liang Lin picked up the heart shape that was folded quite beautifully and heard him say:
“That’s my heart so please keep it.”
“Oh.” This time Liang Lin couldn’t really help but laugh, completely exposing her heart. But then she thought and said: “What if I already have a boyfriend?”
“You had another boyfriend and still put my glasses on?” He seemed to see through her.
She had to keep bluffing: “That would not be good.”
“You don’t, I asked around” He was as calm as ever.
Liang Lin bit her lip, no, she had to take the initiative for once: “Will you go out with me?”
He smiled, a gentle, beautiful smile: “You stole my lines.”
“Then I’ll let you have mine, free of charge. Quickly say yes.”
He took her hand and held it in his: “You’ve kept me waiting for a long, long time, and if I hadn’t come back for my job transfer, if I hadn’t walked this road at that time, I’m afraid we’d have missed each other again.”
“You still haven’t said yes” Liang Lin is very persistent to see the result of the first initiative in her life.
He laughed and lowered his head to place a kiss on her hand: “We didn’t miss each other this time, fortunately.”
