Qiao Tian Chang stared as he took a pair of chopsticks. This made Ning Meng Yao who was stuck between eating and not eating to laugh out loud
“We often get together alone, but how come you’re embarrassed so much this time? Look at your face, it’s red like an apple!” Qiao Tian Chang laughed.
Glaring at Qiao Tian Chang, Ning Meng Yao was depressed in her heart. She was familiar with this person, but not knowing why, she felt self-conscious being together with him now.
“It’s alright. I want to go search for Le Le and the rest.” Ning Meng Yao did not touch the snack in front of her and directly stood up, preparing to leave.
She did not take two steps before another person held her.
“Then let’s go together?”
Ning Meng Yao raised her head to look at the man in front of her and blinked her eyes. She was stunned as she said: “What do you mean?”
Qiao Tian Chang suddenly lowered his head and met eye-to-eye with Ning Meng Yao: “I thought the way I behaved all this time is obvious enough.”
Ning Meng Yao stared at Qiao Tian Chang in a daze, her eyes showed how shocked she was. This…. What was the meaning of this?
“Shush, let’s not talk about this and go play.” Dragging Ning Meng Yao’s hand, Qiao Tian Chang moved forward.
Ning Meng Yao had not returned to her senses. It was not that she did not understand what Qiao Tian Chang was trying to convey, but she could not understand why the situation turned to be like this out of a sudden.
“Wait a second, Big Brother Qiao.” Ning Meng Yao stopped her steps and held Qiao Tian Chang’s hand.
Qiao Tian Chang turned his head to Ning Meng Yao’s direction: “What is it?”
“What do you mean by your earlier words?”
“You’re usually smart, how come I feel that you’re stupid now? To put it simply, I like you. Do you understand now?” Qiao Tian Chang lowered his head so his forehead was touching Ning Meng Yao’s forehead and whispered in a low voice.
Ning Meng Yao gazed at the man close to her and saw the earnest feeling in his eyes.
Qiao Tian Chang became dumbfounded then he looked at Ning Meng Yao in a manner that he did not know whether he should cry or laugh. “It’s okay. I will wait for you to understand.”
Ning Meng Yao’s current mood was hard to describe in a complex way. After she left the capital, after she left Ling Luo, she thought that she was thoroughly disappointed in the matter of man and woman, but hearing Qiao Tian Chang saying that he liked her, she actually felt content.
There was even something in her heart that wanted….. that wanted to be together with him.
Although the time she knew Qiao Tian Chang was not long, she also knew that Qiao Tian Chang was not that type of chauvinistic man. When he was conversing with her, there were a lot of times that he let her.
What she wanted to do, he would help her do. It was like when she was brewing wine, the grapes were the ones he found. How many he found would be how many he took back. Even if she had said it’s enough, he would always bring back a big bag of it whenever he returned from the mountain.
Not only that, when she was cooking food, he would help her like plucking vegetables, washing them, starting the fire. These were things he did.
For ancient people, they had a saying that men should stay far away from the kitchen. But Qiao Tian Chang did not abide it. He even happily learned from her how to cook.
This kind of things, even when she was with Ling Luo, had never happened, not even helping her start the fire.
Having compared the two of them, her heart naturally lean more to Qiao Tian Chang. Moreover, Qiao Tian Chang was only an ordinary person with no complicated family and scheming and plotting.
“Ah!” Ning Meng Yao who was so immersed in her thoughts that she did not notice Qiao Tian Chang stopping bumped against his chest.
Cradling her head with her eyes slightly red, Ning Meng Yao raised her head to meet Qiao Tian Chang: “Why did you stop?”
Seeing Ning Meng Yao who looked wronged, Qiao Tian Chang’s heart ached. He reached out his hand to rub her head: “They are selling nuts here, I just wanted to ask you if you want to eat them or not.” Who knew that she would be so lost in thought that she would bump into him.
Ning Meng Yao turned her head and saw walnut.
Walking to the stand with piqued interest, she took the thing that was wooden pimple to them: “How do you sell this?”
Ning Meng Yao did not pick the others, only taking the walnut to the seller and asked with interest.
The seller was scratching his head with awkwardness: “This is delicious but not easy to open. If this maiden likes it, then just go ahead and pick some.”
