Chapter 042: Su Nuo, you’re so unpromising
It’s not that Su Nuo couldn’t buy cigarettes by herself, but she just calculated the cost. It would be a bit of a stretch if she bought some high-grade cigarettes on top of the three boxes of royal jelly.
Her other purpose is to have contact with Gu Chenglan a little more. Even if both of them can’t be together now, she still had to tie the little wolf dog well, or else he would run away with others with his paws
After hearing Gu Chenglan’s agreement, Su Nuo’s eyes bent with her smile: “Give it to me tomorrow?”
“Yes. But I have one condition.” Gu Chenglan’s eyes narrowed, his thin lips hooked, and the corners of his mouth rose to a good-looking curve.
Gu Chenglan’s smile fell into Su Nuo’s eyes. It suddenly made her become a little dumbfounded.
Gu Chenglan’s face is like a hooligan. He was a king deep in his bones, and he had his own prideful aura. However, the corners of his eyes and his eyebrows revealed a beautiful boy’s unique charm. The slight smile is simply making her crazy to death.
“Say, say it.” Su Nuo’s breath was disordered in nervousness. She closed her eyes the next moment, waiting for Gu Chenglan to tell her the “condition”.
Gu Chenglan stared blankly. He looked at the little girl who had a redder face and trembling and clenched trembling hands in front of him. His thoughts indescribably stirred.
“I want……” Gu Chenglan’s sober and calm voice sounded hoarse. He dragged the end of his words and slowly leaned down at the same time, leaning close to Su Nuo’s face.
Su Nuo unconsciously swallowed her saliva, eyes half-closed, and couldn’t lift a bit of her energy in her body.
If her back wasn’t close to the wall, she would have collapsed to the ground as soon as her legs went soft. Su Nuo, you’re so unpromising.
“I want to eat dumplings.” Gu Chenglan moved close to Su Nuo’s ears and whispered before letting out a small laugh. Then he opened the distance between him and Su Nuo: “What kind of stuffing did you put in the dumplings in your house that day?”
That day, Su Nuo asked Su Yang if they were having dumplings and invited Zheng Mingming to eat with them. However, Gu Chenglan was driven away, and he must’ve minded it. He was asking for compensation today.
Su Nuo felt the surrounding air become clearer and unobstructed. She could now breathe smoother. However, her face blushed more…
What was she thinking? How could she think that Gu Chenglan was going to…… Keke, it’s unlikely, right?
According to Su Nuo’s understanding of Gu Chenglan in the past life, his “uprightness” is far beyond any ordinary boy. They’ve been in love for so long and loved each other to the point of life and death, but he never crossed that line.
Perhaps this kind of boy deserved to be cherished? He would love you but he doesn’t just touch you as he wishes, he would treat you like a treasure at the bottom of his heart, and he would rather silently guard you until his death.
“I-I’ll wrap shrimp and leek stuffings for you” Su Nuo nodded and adjusted her voice before saying that
Most people would make eggs and green leeks stuffing in their dumplings. If they are in better conditions, they will put shrimp meat in. It will be even better with shrimp meat in.
But Gu Chenglan could only eat dumplings with shrimp and yellow leeks stuffing, it must not have eggs in it.
In the past life, they didn’t sell this kind of dumplings stuffing, the cook at Gu Chenglan’s home would specially make it when he wanted to eat dumplings.
Later on, Su Nuo learned it twice from the cook, and Gu Chenglan would only eat Su Nuo’s shrimp and yellow leeks dumplings.
Gu Chenglan was pleased with himself at first, but he was shocked when he heard Su Nuo say she would make shrimp and yellow leek dumplings. The corners of his mouth ticked, and he was full of joy in his heart as he thought: ‘This little girl is really capable ah, she even asked around about my taste, it’s really thoughtful.’
Even if he saw through it, he decided not to lay it bare, so Gu Chenglan turned around and left with an elated mood.
Su Nuo remained standing there with her back leaning against the wall. Her legs were still soft and her heart still flustered, but she was filled with indescribable happiness.
