Those Sweet Times
Chapter 52 Part 1
Lin Chuyan parked his car and tried to wake up Xiang Nuan: “Xiang Nuan, wake up, we’ve arrived at your house.”
“Oh.” She didn’t want to wake up.
“Sleep after you go home. Wake up…...Xiang Nuan, our turret has already been taken down, the Nexus is next. Get up quick and take care of the minions. You have to protect our Nexus well.”
“Ah!” Xiang Nuan jumped up, wide awake, as Lin Chuyan had expected.
Lin Chuyan didn’t know what to say about Xiang Nuan’s addiction to games.
He unbuckled her seat belt, then got out of the car to go around to the passenger side. He opened the door, it was quite windy outside and cold. Worrying Xiang Nuan might catch cold, he tugged her clothes tighter, zipped her down jacket all the way up, and pulled the hood over her head. Xiang Nuan was all bundled up.
Lin Chuyan didn’t feel it was enough and wrapped his own scarf around her. Now only Xiang Nuan’s eyes were showing.
Despite having too much to drink, Xiang Nuan was still able to walk by herself, though she staggered like a child who had just learned to walk. Lin Chuyan held one of her arms to prevent her from falling.
The night was very quiet and the starless sky was dark blue.
Lin Chuyan sent Xiang Nuan back to her home. Ren Danyan was quite displeased at how drunk Xiang Nuan had gotten. She knew her daughter liked to drink, but to getting so drunk outside was dangerous.
Ren Danyan kept her displeasure to herself and didn’t say anything. She didn’t want Lin Chuyan to get any wrong ideas
After Lin Chuyan had successfully delivered Xiang Nuan back home, Ren Danyan invited him to sit down and relax for a while. Lin Chuyan shook his head: “Auntie, I have to go back now. I’ll come visit again in the future.”
“Are you going to drive back to Nanshan City now?”
Ren Danyan frowned: “It’s almost ten o’clock now. It’ll be midnight by the time you get home. It’s too late and all of you must be very tired by now……”
“Don’t worry, auntie. I’m a reliable driver.”
Ren Danyan shook her head: “No, that won’t do. I don’t feel comfortable letting you drive at this hour.”
In her eyes, no matter how mature Lin Chuyan was, he was still a young man. Besides, Xiang Nuan had invited them all the way from another city. It simply didn’t feel right to let them drive the long distance back again, especially so late at night.
Ren Danyan then said: “Leave tomorrow morning, all of you. Stay for the night here, we have a guest room.”
“It’s alright, auntie. It’ll be too much trouble.”
Just then, Ren Daying pretended to pass by and chimed in: “Our guest room is too messy. Why don’t we take them to the hotel? I’ll make the arrangement.”
Ren Danyan: “You shut up.”
Ren Daying quietly walked away, but he gave a glance to Lin Chuyan before moving away. The look was a warning.
Lin Chuyan felt Xiang Nuan’s dad was too vigilant; what could he do to Xiang Nuan in her own house?
Ren Danyan continued and said to Lin Chuyan with a smile: “Listen to me, stay here tonight. Chuyan, go ask the others to come in.”
The others, well, couldn’t come in just by asking……
It wasn’t until Lin Chuyan carried the other three over that Ren Danyan realized that her daughter actually had quite the self-control.
At least, Xiang Nuan could still walk by herself……
Ren Danyan thought to herself: Lin Chuyan’s quite strong, despite being so slender……
Then she thought: The other four are all drunk, but Lin Chuyan can abstain from drinking because he’s the driver. It’s not easy to see that sort of quality in a young man.
