The Jasmine Scented White Moonlight: Chapter 5 – Part 1

In the evening, Shen Shuyun cleaned out the study for Ning Wan to live in.

His house consisted of two rooms and a living room; one room was fitted out as the master bedroom, while the other was fitted out as a very large study.

Inside the study, there was a folding bed against the wall. Shen Shuyun opened this bed, brought in blankets and pillows, and cleaned the study, while Ning Wan squatted on the floor to unpack the clothes he had brought with him.

When Shen Shuyun saw Ning Wan take out a valuable piece of clothing from his suitcase he suddenly remembered that Ning Wan was driving a Porsche at the time of the crash.

He became suspicious and asked: “Ning Wan, what do you do for a living? I remember, last time you were driving a Porsche…”

Ning Wan was choked but he reacted extremely quickly and immediately said:

“I was driving my boss’s car. That day the boss just happened to want me to go pick him up, you ended up hitting me on the way, and I didn’t pick up the boss. The boss was in a hurry and waited for so long in the end he got angry and fired me.”

Shen Shuyun nodded thoughtfully and remained silent for a while, then he smoothly explained:

“Then your monthly salary shouldn’t be too low, right? I know you young people like to buy clothes to follow the trend, what’s the word for it… Oh yes, moonlighters, you must be one of them. You are unable to save money every month. But you can’t always spend money so generously, you still have to save a part of your salary every month, so that you won’t be too embarrassed if there’s any emergency in the future.”

Ning Wan was relieved. He gave him a big smile with curved eyes and promised him:” Okay, Brother Yun, I will.”

The next morning, Ning Wan was woken up by the aroma of fried eggs.

Actually, Ning Wan did not have the habit of eating breakfast.

 When his mother was still alive, she would wake him up every day, and occasionally she would even cook a simple breakfast for him.

Later on, Ning Wan moved out of the main house and went to live in an apartment by himself.  He had to go to school at 7 or 8 o’clock.

The aunt who was hired to clean up the house would come at 9 in the morning.

Since no one was making breakfast for him, he simply stopped eating, and gradually his breakfast turned into a cup of coffee.

Ning Wan turned over and got up, stepping into his slippers to get out of the room that was a little small for him, just as Shen Shuyun was scooping the fried eggs out of the pan.

The fried eggs was put into the slices of bread. Shen Shuyun put in slices of ham and tomatoes, and with one cut, he cut the bread diagonally into triangles, making the simplest breakfast.

Shen Shuyun brought the sandwich out and put it in front of Ning Wan: “I don’t know what flavor you like, just make do with this, you’ll be fine.”

“What about you, Brother Yun?” Ning Wan saw that Shen Shuyun had no intention of sitting down to have breakfast with him, so he asked: “Aren’t you going to eat breakfast?”

“I brought it in my bag; I’ll eat it on the way.”

Shen Shuyun put his hands behind his back to untie his apron and looked up at the clock hanging on the wall: “I’m going to be late, I’m going out now.”

Ning Wan also took a look at the clock and saw that the hour hand had just gone past the number six, and was shocked: “It’s not even seven o’clock, so why are you going to work?”

“I can’t help it; it’s my turn to watch the students read early today.”

Between these few words, Shen Shuyun had taken off his apron, put on his tweed jacket that was hanging on the side, and walked to the door to change his shoes:

“It’s only when I need to watch the early morning readings that I go so early, usually I can go at 7:30. »

Shen Shuyun opened the doorknob and was about to leave.

Ning Wan stretched his neck and called out to him: “Brother Yun!”

Shen Shuyun tilted his head slightly: “Hm?”

“I’ll pick you up from work tonight!”

  “…That’s fine, you might as well, we can go to the supermarket together in the evening and buy some of your favorite food.” 

Shen Shuyun waved his hand and continued: “Remember to come at five, don’t be late, I don’t want to stand around waiting in the dry cold wind.”

“Definitely!”

When Shen Shuyun left, Ning Wan slowly finished his sandwich before picking up his jacket and going downstairs.

He took out the phone buzzing in his trouser pocket and pressed the green button, listening to the respectful voice on the other end of the line: “Mr. Ning, where are you going to be picked up this morning?”

Ning Wan answered his driver: “No need, you won’t need to pick me up for a while these days whether in the morning or evening, just stay at the office.”

 After hanging up the phone, Ning Wan reached out and stopped a taxi.
