Happy Reading!!!

Hey, I thought you did not have any aesthetic sense at all. I did not expect that you would care about what people think one day!”

Lù Yù’s appeared to be very surprised. After thinking about it for a while, she mischievously said, “Are you disliked by the people you like?”

Xuē Lì Yán kept his silence.

She did not bother with him anymore and turned to  Jiǎn Míng Xià saying, “Míng Xià jiě, in fact, this guy and I are high school classmates. He was also a famous flower in our school. He was put out to give the school a long face. As a result, after entering the University, he began to develop in the direction of an Uncle with picky feet. The longer he grows, the more disabled he becomes. The next year, the students come to see it, they got their hearts broken. “

In Jiǎn Míng Xià’s opinion, these two people also seemed to have an indescribable past.

Xuē Lì Héng coughed, lowered his voice and spoke, “Cough, pay attention to your identity ah!Your boyfriend is still sitting here. Keep going on about other people’s affairs, is it appropriate?”

Even though he spoke that way, his eyes were full of mirth.

Lù Yù did not feel criticized by her boyfriend at all. She refuted with a smile, “I’m used to it. When I see your brother, I want to poke his thorn.”

Jiǎn Míng Xià simply bowed her head and put a dumpling into her mouth,  it was specially told to be made without adding scallion It tasted very delicious, only less fragrant.

“Hurry up! Eat quickly. Do you want to go fishing today?” Xuē Lì Héng picked a dumpling for Lù Yù.

Lù Yù happily ate the dumpling and did not continue with her rumbling.

The four finished the dumplings in peace.

After breakfast, several people walked slowly to the scenic spot.

The place they chose to visit this time was Nanhu Bay. It was a famous scenic spot in Nancheng, which had rugged and winding mountain roads, beautiful natural rocks and a large green lake.

Today’s schedule was to climb the mountain in the morning, fish in the afternoon, and come back by cable car in the evening. The schedule was very packed.

Jiǎn Míng Xià had been there with her classmates and her parents before. When she had visited with her classmates, a group of people made a lot of noise. Because this was only one of the sightseeing sites, she just took a cable car and looked around before leaving. When she had come with their parents, they were afraid of heights, so they just took a walk in the scenic area ahead.

Jiǎn Míng Xià had no chance but to go fishing in the lake twice in summer. The ecology of Nanhu Bay was still very good, and its fish had also made a certain commercial reputation.

So Jiǎn Míng Xià had been looking forward to this trip. She also had decided to fish two fish, one was to be roasted, the other one would be used for soup.

Lù Yù was not the kind of person who was afraid of life. On the contrary, this girl was very cheerful, with the passion and vitality that Jiǎn Míng Xià lacked.

Although it was evidently their first time meeting each other, she had been holding Jiǎn Míng Xià’s hand, while chattering continuously.

Therefore, it was clear that there were a couple of lovers on this trip. But it turned out to be those two girls walking in the front hand in hand, whilst the two big men followed from behind in silence.

The Xuē brothers were not like-minded brothers. They did not feel embarrassed or awkward. They were five years apart in age. They had not had any man role model so they did not talk much in private. They only talk about work occasionally.

Jiǎn Míng Xià had not encountered such a cheerful person for a long time, so she got a headache racking her brains to tell Lù Yù about the past events with Xuē Lì Héng. At last, she was not sure about what to say. She could only deliberately say, “If you throw Xuē Lì Héng aside like this, he will be angry ah!”

Lù Yù looked back and saw the two brothers separated by a distance. Thus she decisively left Jiǎn Míng Xià to comfort her boyfriend.

Jiǎn Míng Xià purposely lagged behind, letting the couple to go ahead. Unknowingly Xuē Lì Yán walked to her side.

Xuē Lì Yán followed her pace, and the two slowly fell behind the pair of lovers.

The voice of the two people in front was almost inaudible. Xuē Lì Yán said: ” Lù Yù was my team leader in high school. I didn’t study seriously at that time, and I couldn’t hand in my homework. Every time after class, she stood at my desk to urge me to write. Young boys always have a bad temper. Once, I didn’t hand in my homework, and she came to urge me. Then, I said some excessive words, which made her cry. She didn’t come to school the next day. 

“After that, she resigned from all class positions, and she became a lot more negative, so I was very sorry for her over the years. After I graduated from University, my high school class held a class reunion. Xuē Lì Héng sent me there. She saw Xuē Lì Héng and fell in love with him at first sight. After the party, she put aside the past matters to contact me. 

“I asked Xuē Lì Héng and he refused her request.”

Jiǎn Míng Xià casually turned at the roadside scenery.

Xuē Lì Yán asked her, “Why don’t you talk?”

Jiǎn Míng Xià lightly answered: “I am listening to you say ah!”

Xuē Lì Yán frowned, pursed his dry lips, and continued: “So without Xuē Lì Héng consent, I have his  contact information to Lù Yù.”

“She felt that I was making up for my past mistakes by helping her, but I knew in my heart that I didn’t choose to help her for that reason.”

They suddenly came to a halt when he finished saying that.

Jiǎn Míng Xià did not know why he wanted to talk to her, who got nothing to do with it. She also did not wish to think about the reasons behind it.

They walked in silence on the windy mountain road.

The only contrast was the two people in front were laughing.

After a long time, Xuē Lì Yán said, “You have become much more silent than before.”

Jiǎn Míng Xià smiled and said: “You will understand someday that, people’s character will inevitably become more and more boring as they get older.”

“Are you angry?” He asked

Jiǎn Míng Xià threw a baffled looks at him: “No ah! What made you think so ?”

Xuē Lì Yán could not answer. He could not really figure out why she was angry, but he sensed that her mood was not right.

At least when they went out, they were totally different. At that time, even when she was silent, her face was smiling. However at present, even though her face was smiling, her solemn eyes showed the real emotions of their master.

Without giving Xuē Lì Yán time to think, Jiǎn Míng Xià saw the two people resting in the pavilion and said, “Let’s go and take a rest.”

After having a rest in the pavilion and eating some snacks to satisfy their hunger, the group of people set off again.

After the first enthusiasm had subsided, everyone started to slow down.

The second half of the road which Jiǎn Míng Xià walked was a bit strenuous. Knowing that she was going to climb the mountain today, she had specially put on the new sports shoes that she had not had the chance to wear before. Perhaps because her feet were not accustomed with the new shoes or that her feet had grown bigger after her purchase. In short, the more she walked, the more she felt the foot tickling.

However, it was still within the scope of tolerance, so the Jiǎn Míng Xià was determined to bear it, so as having one’s spirits dampened.

Stopping and walking all the way, Lù Yù took a lot of photos with her mobile phone. There were photos of scenery, and a few people alone, and or in a group.

Over the front of the mountain, standing on the top of the mountain, you could see a large lake behind the mountain. The protection measures of the scenic area were very meticulous. There were not many buildings around the lake. Apart from the peak period of tourism, Nanhu Bay was still very clean.

Near noon, the group of four found a family-owned restaurant for lunch. The fish meal for lunch was covered with a layer of red chili oil, with fish balls and fried fish pieces in it.

Jiǎn Míng Xià had eaten a lot of fish meal with the brand of Nanhu Bay in Nancheng. But today, she found that the taste of fish meal here was immensely different. Might be because the material was still fresh, so the vermicelli and fish were particularly creamy and tender.

The noodles were served on a large plate. After eating two plates with a plate as big as usual, Jiǎn Míng Xià still wished to continue , but decided to stophere.

The two girls’s eating speed was pretty fast. Lù Yù took Jiǎn Míng Xià to prepare the fishing gear.

Lù Yù was familiar with these. In addition to fishing tackle, she also rented a small boat. In fact, someone like Jiǎn Míng Xià was really rare. To calculate it, it had been more than four years since the last time she was there back when she graduated from University. Now, she had not even looked at the local signboard very seriously.

In fact, it was not only here, but also the must-see playground for tourists in Nancheng.

It was not about saving money that if it was only one person, it would not be fun, and those who could come together refused to be together.

Jiǎn Míng Xià was actually very easy to get along with, but very difficult to make friends. One of her best friends said that she closed herself in her own world, and sooner or later she would forget how to get along with others.

Although in the same city, communication was already developed well, but Jiǎn Míng Xià sometimes did not have a phone call with her best friend for a few months.

Obviously, they had used to be inseparable friends, but now there was almost no communication. The problem was not in one person.

Accumulated complaints turned to be the last straw for the rupture of friendship.

But after all, they were people who had known each other for more than ten years and lived with the past half of their lives. So even though they complained about each other and had a lot of opinions behind their backs, they still maintained the superficial peace.

Jiǎn Míng Xià had no desire to fall in love, because she did not want to fall into such a situation with her lover in the future. Which were, no longer love each other, but reluctant to separate.

This was the greatest torment of love.

When adolescence came into contact with love novels too early and had read too many love stories, the consequence was that though they have not even been in love yet, still could predict the result rationally.

Therefore, many love novels authors, and novel lovers, wrote the best stories in the world and the most exciting love. But they no longer believed in love in their hearts.

“Jiǎn Míng Xià, what are you thinking?”

Seemed like Jiǎn Míng Xià had been holding the fishing rod for a long time, so Xuē Lì Yán shouted to let her to snap out of it.

Jiǎn Míng Xià stopped divergent thinking, said: “Thinking of a very philosophical thing.”

Xuē Lì Yán questioned her with his eyes.

After some thought, Jiǎn Míng Xià  said a perfunctory reason: “Life is short, then should just enjoy the present.”

This was bullshit. Although it sounded very philosophical, it got nothing to do with Jiǎn Míng Xià’s mind.

Xuē Lì Yán used a few seconds to reflect on the content of this sentence, and then showed a shy smile. He put his hand on Jiǎn Míng Xià’s hand and said, “There is a fish on the hook.”

Then he pulled her hand hard, and a big fish jumped out of the water.Looking at the final struggle of the fish, Jiǎn Míng Xià thought in her heart- Jiǎn Míng Xià, ​​you are done for!
