Happy Reading!!!

The car drove at a very low speed. It was Jiǎn Míng Xià’s first time, even the bikers on the side could easily overtake them.

But Xuē Lì Yán was very serious and his eyes were always on the road.

“It’s not your first time driving, is it?” Jiǎn Míng Xià could not help but asked this question. After all, he looked very serious.

“No” Xuē Lì Yán answered quickly.

Jiǎn Míng Xià asked again: “Is it the first time driving with someone?”

“No,” He said.

So Jiǎn Míng Xià could not understand. It was not his first time driving on the road, nor was it his first time having a passenger. What made him so nervous?In conclusion, it must have been because he had not been driving for long. Jiǎn Míng Xià felt that she had found the reason, so she disturbed Xuē Lì Yán no more. Practice made perfect, anyway.

As a result, after driving for more than ten minutes, the speed was absolutely constant.

There was another traffic light. The vehicles behind them all sped up to rush past. Xuē Lì Yán simply stopped under the street light. Jiǎn Míng Xià had the urge to laugh a little.

She reached out and said, “Give me your hand.”

“What’s the matter?” Xuē Lì Yán handed his hand in suspicion, looking so sluggish.

Jiǎn Míng Xià grabbed his hand and felt it. It turned out that he was sweating. Not only that, his hand even shook a little. Jiǎn Míng Xià fetched a paper towel from her bag and wiped the sweat on both his hands.

I can’t tell, his mental quality is so bad.

“Do you need to be so nervous? Isn’t it just driving a car?”

He looked at their overlapping hands and said in a calm voice that was completely the opposite of his mood: “I don’t know, I’m just nervous.”

Jiǎn Míng Xià had no intention to laugh at him. In fact, Jiǎn Míng Xià did not dare to drive herself. She was afraid of traffic accidents even when riding a bicycle. Not only she, but her father, and her father’s brother also did not dare to drive. It was about ancestral timidity.

Funny to say, up to now, Jiǎn Míng Xià’s family always took a taxi when they go out together. During the Chinese New Year, hailing a cab was inconvenient, thus their family of big and small eyes would be at home, unspeakably sad. Usually, if you wanted to travel far away, you had to have a thorough plan. In short, it was very troublesome.

Therefore, Xuē Lì Yán did not dare to drive. In fact, there was nothing to laugh at. In other words, Jiǎn Míng Xià herself did not even have the speed of tortoise.

But she thought to herself in her heart, she could not show it. If she did not take this seriously, others would follow her. If she looked nervous, would not Xuē Lì Yán be more nervous?

Xuē Lì Yán knew what Jiǎn Míng Xià had misunderstood, but he had no meaning to explain it.

Over there, Jiǎn Míng Xià patted his hand and said in a soft voice, “Don’t be nervous. You see, I’m not afraid of riding in a car. What are you afraid of? Let’s take it slowly. If you are not in a hurry, just practice driving the car. If it doesn’t work, we’ll find a parking lot and take a taxi. “

Jiǎn Míng Xià felt that she was a caring big sister, sweet tempered.

Xuē Lì Yán nodded meekly.

After the traffic light passed early, Xuē Lì Yán continued to drive on the road.

Perhaps, it was because of Jiǎn Míng Xià’s comfort, Xuē Lì Yán finally increased the speed.

They finally arrived at their destination before eight o’clock. In order not to put pressure on Xuē Lì Yán, Jiǎn Míng Xià was pretending to sleep with her eyes closed, she went in a  half asleep and half awake state.

So she did not know that someone’s ears were red all the way.

Found a parking lot and parked the car. Xuē Lì Yán stared at Jiǎn Míng Xià’s sleeping face for a while, then gently touched her face with the back of his hand and called her name: “Jiǎn Míng Xià?”

Jiǎn Míng Xià was only half asleep. She felt it as soon as the car stopped. However, she did not open her eyes immediately as she was lazy. Unexpectedly, Xuē Lì Yán would touch her face with his hand, which startled her.

Seeing her eyes wide open in fright, Xuē Lì Yán said in a flat tone: “We’re here.”


Jiǎn Míng Xià blinked her eyes. It might be due to her just waking up, her face was suffused with a light pink color.

“I’ll call my brother first to see where they are.”

After that, Xuē Lì Yán turned out his mobile phone and dialed the number. He then informed Jiǎn Míng Xià, “They still need about 10 minutes. We can find a place to have breakfast and eat while we wait.”

En.” Jiǎn Míng Xià nodded in agreements.

They went to a family-owned dumpling restaurant and ordered a black congee. They also asked for two plates of pork and beef dumplings. Because the dumplings were freshly made, they had to wait for more than ten minutes, just in time for Xuē Lì Héng and his company to come and eat.

Jiǎn Míng Xià idly flipped through the menu, considering that eating too spicy food would affect her trip, she only added a basket of steamed dumpling.

Pushing the menu to Xuē Lì Yán, Jiǎn Míng Xià said, “I’ll go to the bathroom.”

Xuē Lì Yán nodded.

Jiǎn Míng Xià stood up, there was a little hesitation before she said: “Why don’t you go and wash your hands.”

She thought that he must be uncomfortable after sweating so much from the driving.

As a result, Xuē Lì Yán shook his head and said, “You go, I’ll call them again and tell them where we are.”

Jiǎn Míng Xià went by herself.

After washing her hands, Jiǎn Míng Xià looked at her reflection on the mirror face up. What appeared in the mirror was a beautiful woman with short hair. Her eyebrows were not too thin or thick, they were just right , and her eyes were not small, they were a pair of general round eyes. Her nose had no distinctive characteristics. Her height was also moderate. Her only bright color were her lips. Her lips were full and painted bright red.

Having such a  very ordinary appearance, the advantage was that she had not been ravaged by acne in adolescence, but inherited from her mother’s was her white skin, which made this face without acne and moles look flawless. In addition, she ate in time and had a regular life. Therefore, even though her skin had entered the declining period of a twenty-eight year, the skin on her face was still as tender as a girl’s.

Jiǎn Míng Xià had always been very satisfied with her appearance. Although she was not that dazzling and beautiful, she would never be called ugly when she goes out of the door. How could she be a little beauty? She had many pursuers in her school days .

And now this familiar face was still spurting a faint red, which made it look even more vivid.

It was a different red from physiology wise.

Jiǎn Míng Xià reached out to touch, still could feel a little bit hot.

People always thought that she had a thick skin. She did not know what modesty was, so it was truly unexpected for her to blush.

“Jiǎn Míng Xià, you’ve had enough!”

Accidentally being touched in the face, that’s all! I’m not a girl of seventeen or eighteen years old. What’s the blush?

What made you blush!

She rebuked herself in her heart. Jiǎn Míng Xià wanted to splash her face with a handful of cold water, but after thinking about it, she refrained from doing so. In the end, she just washed her face with warm water, then added face cream, and painted her eyebrows again.

Finished retouching her makeup, Jiǎn Míng Xià’s face was no longer red, but she looked a lot more energetic.

It was no wonder that the eye makeup was painted at seven o’clock not to look as good as it used to be now.

When Jiǎn Míng Xià came  out of the bathroom, Xuē Lì Héng and his girlfriend finally arrived and the three were talking about something.

When Jiǎn Míng Xià took her seat , Xuē Lì Héng said with a smile: “Come on, let’s get to know each other. Míng Xià, this is my girlfriend, Lù Yù,.Lù in road, Yù in encounter.”

“Lù Yù, this is my sister that I mentioned before, who was born in the same year as me. Don’t be deceived by her meek appearance, a lady like her used to be famous for her bad temper. We played together at the beginning, which one hasn’t been chased by her. Only me, I always got beaten all over by her.”

Jiǎn Míng Xià glared at him in anger: ” Are you mocking people like this? If you hadn’t bullied me, would I beat you?”

Xuē Lì Héng spread out his hand and laughed: “OK, OK, so I deserved it?”

He looked a lot more cheerful this time. He was no longer the serious face of the teaching director.

She was wondering if this was the greatness of love, or that he had been pretending  before. It was not that he had exposed his nature for a long time.

Jiǎn Míng Xià once again saw the shadow of silly but amusing person on him. This was right. He was clearly a hooligan who squatted at the school gate all day long and molesting beautiful girls. Why pretending to be virtuous.

Unconsciously, Jiǎn Míng Xià’s smile became brighter.

Lù Yù was holding her chin and listening to their bickering and sighed: ” Your relationship is really good.”

Jian Ming Xia laughed: “Of course, we have knocked our heads over and drank blood and wine.”

Lù Yù surprised: “Is it true or false?”

“It’s true, of course, but only use the white candles and drink the ketchup.”

Lù Yù laugh.

Although Jiǎn Míng Xià was a loner now, it was easy for her to make friends with someone. She was very considerate and good at answering questions, so she would not feel left out when she was making friends.

When she finished laughing, she asked, “Older sister, how many words are your names ah?”

She simply changed sides and drove Xuē Lì Yán away.

Jiǎn Míng Xià took the mobile phone, entered  her name and phone number on it,. She also dialed the number and it rang twice before she hung up.

“It’s a very good name. It’s easy to understand and has a beautiful meaning. Unlike my name, it has no connotation at all. When my father pursued my mother, he waited in the same place every day hoping to meet her. Lù Yù pouted while talking, she looked charming and lovely.

She was a beautiful young girl herself, and her words were lively and pleasant to the ear.

This was a girl who was totally different from Xuē Lì Héng. she had no idea how they had gotten together.

Jiǎn Míng Xià smiled before responded”In fact, you have said its beautiful implication, not every name has such a beautiful story.”

“I also think that my name was Lù Shēng, because I was born on the road by my mother. Fortunately, my father didn’t agree. If I really were to be called Lù Shēng, I wouldn’t be able to lift my head in front of my friends.”

This time Jiǎn Míng Xià really smiled.

The two girls here had a good chat, and Xuē Lì Yán said coldly, “Talk while eating, otherwise the food will get cold.”

Lù Yù heard Xuē Lì Yán and turned her eyes to his face and pointed at him. : “I just wanted to say, Xuē Lì Yán, don’t you usually treasure your golden head?”

Obviously, she and Xuē Lì Yán also knew each other and should be familiar with each other.

Jiǎn Míng Xià showed a polite smile. Xuē Lì Yán looked at her. Their eyes were on each other. Xuē Lì Yán said slowly, “Someone doesn’t like it, so I changed it.”Jiǎn Míng Xià frowned.
